nov15_vigil

I am praying that everyone has a safe vigil and that the glow of your candles will reach far and wide into the hearts of everyone, including the dictators, and feel in their hearts that detention without trial is against the law of natural justice, that it is not a law, but just a tool for the powerful to abuse when they are weak.

That it breaks up families and is inhuman. That if you never want to have it imposed on you, then you must never wish it for others.

That anyone can be labelled a ‘terrorist’ just because you go againt the powers that be, that there is no due process of law for all this, and that it could be the most cruel thing, you will wish not even for your worst enemies.

Say NO to ISA, say it loud and clear, and with every beat of your heart.

Bless all the brave souls who are consistently present at all the candlelight vigils.

You are the hope of Malaysia. THANK YOU!

    “The power of the Executive to cast a man into prison without formulating any charge known to the law, and particularly to deny him the judgment of his peers, is in the highest degree odious and is the foundation of all totalitarian government whether Nazi or Communist.” – Sir Winston Churchill

    ISA is a law passed by the parliament like any other laws of the country. What if the JI operatives blasted the KLCC or the Hindraf Tamil Tigers members blow themselves during meeting with our leaders?

    If the ISA (if there is one in Indonesia) was used against the Bali bombers, don’t you think that the 200 people can be saved?

    IT’S TIME, MY FRIENDS.

    WE CAN AND WE WILL ABOLISH THE EVIL ISA.

    WE CAN DO IT IF WE REALLY WANT TO; IF WE REALLY PUT OUR HEARTS AND MINDS TO IT.

    I AM PROUD OF MY FELLOW MALAYSIANS.

    I BELIEVE THAT THIS GENERATION WILL BE THE ONE THAT REMOVES THE SHACKLES OF ISA FROM ALL OUR FELLOW MALAYSIANS.

    WE WILL NOT ALLOW SELF-SERVING POLITICIANS TO DESTROY THE HOME THAT WE LOVE.

    now is also the time to declare an all out war
    on all litterbugs who has turned our country
    into a big rubbish dump. no place is spare by
    these dirty creature.
    why no campaign against all these dirty litterbugs.
    look at our foodcourt cigarette butt tissue all over the places.
    disgraceful dan memalukan.

    ISA will be used on Botak Albar by next govt before he goes to prison for abuse of power

    Mahathir & Najib also go to prison

    “ISA will be used on Botak Albar by next govt before he goes to prison for abuse of power”—-MM says.

    Nope , I don’t think the next gomen will do that.
    The next gomen will give a fair public trial IF there is a case against him.
    We don’t want the next gomen to be like the present gomen do we?🙂

    If the next gomen use the dracula’s draconian law, we will have to start lighting BONFIREs instead of little candles!

    Peaceful vigil need more powerful speakers to pull more people…FRU show their face no one arrested.

  14. mahathirrubbish says:

    When a new govt take over, it will take at least 120 days before ISA can be removed.
    Until that no harm to put the botak, najis and all those who lose their seats under ISA. Kalau tidak they will start riots.
    After ISA remove, charge them in court. Before that let them enjoy ISA….lights on 24 hours, drink urine……….

  15. Fair To All says:

    As I see it, the day ISA is abolished, “rats” will cause havoc to the nation.!!! That desperate born loser harping to be PM will legalise sodomy. Corruption will hit the roof. He has quickly forgotten he is a MORON.

  16. joenathan says:

    two-face,
    How on earth could you compare the activities of JI with that of Hindraf?You see ,if some one’s intention is to bomb they will not beg the PM for a meeting, that too close to 300 request sent to him,he turned a blind eye.If they wanted to bomb they wouldn’t be begging together wth a 6yr old child wth gifts to meet the PM.Get this into your thick skull first,before commenting without substance.You mean to say Theresa Kok and the other chinese journalist who were detained under ISA akin to JI,AL-Qaeda,etc?The real perpetrators are people like Ahmad Ismail and Zulkifli Nordin who could have easily sparked off a nation wide racial clash,but they have been left scot free,how come?Look at their basis of arguement,doesn’t hold water at all for causing such ruckus and yet the govt keeps silent.When innocent people who contribute taxes honestly and clutched in poverty rise to voice out their pent up frustrations of 50 years of suppression and oppression ,people like you call them terrorist and incarcerate them under draconian laws.Shame lah to see people like you still exist in today’s digital age,taking pride in denying their democratic rights.

  17. doit says:

    I agree with twoface and fair to all that botak hamid a/l albar, najis razak, budawi, umno supreme council should all be isa.

  18. motherchell says:

    I’m going broke with the kind of behavior of the police and our Not -So home minister bozo. The taxpayers money is used to stifle the soul of the Nation as the crooks and killers roam the streets . Albar may not realize his sins till it hits him close to his heart and home . History has taught us lots , but this man studied in the gutters, so he behaves as one .

    He may be even worried for his own life for the evil head he has created at peacehill as majority of the civil servants have been indoctrinated with UMNO ‘s ulterior tutorials of money and power . GOD?? Who is That??

    My blessings to all the souls who seek justice and freedom for Malaysia in their time at vigils.

    The blessing is the Bedouin Albozo’s days are numbered as he chokes in his own vomit daily………

    ‘… no candles and no ISA tee-shirts ‘… ?

    The BN Government & the Police Force as ‘peace-keepers’ are afraid of our ‘candles’ & ‘No to ISA’ tee-shirts ?

    Lets continue to fast and pray for Wisdom ,Peace and Tranquility to prevail.

    Let’s continue to campaign to “RELEASE all ISA detainees & ABOLISH ISA NOW!”

    Syabas to all Candlelight-vigil Peacemakers.

    If you give a little power to the Bn putras, surely they will misuse the powers.

    Why can’t all these Bn putras (government of the days) advocate the law of natural justice, good human and universal laws?

    The Chinese has got 6 thousand years of culture and if all these Bn putras are following the good Chinese culture diligently, all these garbage of putting innocent people to jail in Kemunting would never ever happen.

  21. pj voter says:

    The MCA and Gerakran, the so called champions of the Chinese, obviously don’t follow the Chinese culture closely. As a matter of fact, they collude with Umno putras in sodomizing the endemic Chinese.

    These Chinese traitors are ignorant to the Chinese culture, just like the principal of New Era College, Dr. Kua Kia Song aka pj traitor.

  22. pj voter says:

    The Chinese Society elected all these Chinese reps to represent the Chinese so that they could perform their jobs according to the wishes of the endemic Chinese.

    But alas, all these endemic Chinese traitors betray the endemic Chinese and acting in cohorts with Umnoputras selling the endemic Chinese rights and interests.

  23. pj voter says:

    According to traditional Chinese culture, these Chinese traitors would have been rounded up and chopped to pieces.

    But now these endemic Chinese traitors continue sodomizing the endemic Chinese whereas they should have been chopped to pieces- in accordance to Chinese law/culture.

    International Human Rights & Feminist Critique — Rey Ty

  24. pj voter says:

    Just like this principal from New Era College! Obviously he is ignorant to the Chinese culture. How could he dare castigate Dong Jiao Zong (DJZ)- the highest endemic Chinese Educational Association?

    If he has no respect to this DJZ, he has no respect to all the endemic Chinese in Bolehland!

    This pj trairtor is the antithesis to the wishes of the endemic Chinese and is nothing but a traitor in colluding with other collaborators trying to hijack the control of New Era College!

    This traitor had sold the pj voters’ backsides to the MCA dogs and now wanting to hijack New Era College?

    Sigh! Where is justice in Bolehland? The Bn putras have been sodomizing the rakyat for 50 years, and this pj traitor is further sodomizing the endemic Chinese in the sub-system by hijacking New Era College.

  25. samurai warrior says:

    What Chinese culture lah? As far as I’m concerned,my culture is not Chinese,Malay or Indian..it’s Malaysian rojak..just like our bak kut teh is 100% Malaysian. Forget about the Chinese 6,000 years history of culture lah..btw,some historians contents that Chinese culture is actually 10,000 years old. If I were you,I’ll worry about the gigigugigi(in Cantonese,it means:to care only about the survival of oneself while everybody else can go die lah) culture which is so deeply entrenched in the psyche or mindset of us Malaysians of Chinese ethnicity. Parents should start reversing this age old ‘family doctrine’ and teach their kids life philosophies that are less materialistic and which are more conscious of the need for the realisation of a just and civil Malaysian society so that their future generations will one day be the Obamas of this country. Sorry for the sermonizing. It is Sunday..by the way.😀

    2face talk c***k only. Why ISA not use on MIC tamil tiger supporters?

    More than 200 people from MIC Youth and several non-governmental organizations staged a peaceful demonstration in front of the Sri Lankan High Commission here yesterday.

    samurai warrior,

    Looking at the Chinese culture which has been practiced in Hong Kong and Taiwan, don’t you want a clean ACA in Bolehland like them?

    And looking at the ex-corrupted president of Taiwan who is in jail now, isn’t this the envy of the rakyat of Bolehland?

    And looking at our corrupt politicians and apa nama itu from Kelara is still living in debauchery like a king spending all the ill gotten wealth stealing from Bolehland, don’t you think is high time to practice the 6000 year of culture which could put all these criminals in jail?

    It’s the culture which determines the success of a nation! What we want is the solid, tested and proven 6000 year old culture.

    Obviously not the corrupt, lawless and dictatorial Bn putras culture.

    Don’t ever presume that Hinduism is not a violent religion. The cycle of reprisals between Hindu’s and Muslims is on the rise in India. Christians and Muslims are oppressed in India.

    Marilah bersama-sama membenterasi kekucupan kegunaan ISA yang begitu tidak mendatangi feadah kepada maruah dan akhlak manusia yang serba kemenangan.

    “Vigil” perpaduan ini amatlah bagus membentangi alam keteguhan harmoni dan interasi sesama rakyat Malaysia. Visi ini juga bagus dengan membentangkan kegilaan dan kemusnahkan konsept ISA yang tidak memerlihara hak asasi kemanusiaan yang semakin melentur serba kekurangan di dalam tamadun yang sedang berkembang merujuk kepada kita sesama bangsa dan persamaan didalam perkauman yang berlainan.

    Oleh yang demikian pemasaran terhadap “Vigil ini patutlah berterusan sampai mengecapi tahap kebebasan dan perkembangan rakyat majmuk menerongkahi persamaan di dalam satu bangsa, satu rakyat “Bangsa Malaysia”. Walaupun dirempuh oleh ketakutan polis yang tidak memberi satu perhormatan kepada lagu kebangsaan Malaysia. Kita sebagai rakyat mesti menyahut dengan lebih mendalam, apakan maknanya “perinsip demokrasi berparlimen” yang di tegaskan oleh kerajaan persekutuan tetapi tidak membuatnya di peringkat melaksanakannya terhadap rakyat sejahtera sekalian.

    Apatah mereka bersuara hendak meperlindungi hak asasi “Bangsa Malaysia” ini Cuma semata-mata bertujuan untuk mendapatkan sokongan? Atau menganggap yang rakyat sekarang masih lagi berteduh di bawah “Katak di dalam Tempurung”.

    Kita rakyat setiap peristiwa perayaan di beri dorongan untuk menyatukan perpaduan dengan melawat sama sendiri dan menguatkan lagi keharmonian sesama rakyat Malaysia. Apakata yang “Vigil Candlelight” ini tidak anggap sebagai satu dorongan untuk menyatukan rakyat yang meranah di dalam penindasan kerajaan yand tidak memberi penghormatan kepada hak asasi manusia dan perasaan menyuarakan diri di dalam kebebasan kebangsaan.

    Jikalau kerajaan hendak membuat tuduhan yang meyeluruh yang rakyat tidak menyokong kepadanya patutlah ia kedepan membuat satu penyiasat menyeluruh mengetahui daripada apakah alasan-alasan dan juga faktor-faktor apakan yang menyebabkan rakyat mengurangkan kepercayai terhadap pemerintahan kerajaan yang semakin hari semakin lemas di dalam arus politik memenuhi kepentingan sendiri daripada citarasa rakyat dan pemerintahannya.

    Oleh itu sama-sama kita masuk ke padang menyorak pemberontakan terhadap kegunaan kekerasan daripada Polis di Raja Malaysia dan juga ketepian didalam isu ISA yang begitu tidak bermakna sekali.

    Ampun Tuanku!

    Good, finally the hindus have decided to retaliate instead of listening to the cowardly Congress Party whose decline umno apes. It was Gandhi who said “muslims are bullies, hindus are cowards”.

    This is a vast scape of a site to rival even machu picchu in terms of visitor arrivals and to think I’ve only discovered it! Anyway if I can pull you away from basking in the admiration of your many readers for a minute I’d like to say that after I’ve read one or two of your poems I can’t help feeling some affinity between yours and mine, if I may humbly so claim. The next natural thing to do I suppose is to invite you over to take a look at mine and decide for yourself whether it merits your attention or not. Thank you. My blog is at zaharan.blogspot.com.

  41. samurai warrior says:

    Pj Voter,

    I don’t know about 6,000 year old Chinese culture but I do know that it was a bloody war torn 6,000 years of Chinese history due to greedy and corrupted dynasties. Just learn from the mistakes of all the failed Chinese dynasties and develop your own life philosophies based on common sense lar. No need to look back into the imperial era in where your long departed ancestors lived to gain inspiration in the present world where Communists currently rules China. Wake up and smell the white kopi lar!

  42. Menyalak-er says:

    Hahaha… samurai, indeed the hedonistic chauvinists have convergent thinking. Monomania, i think is the bane of holistic thinking – owe you one white kopi. You are certainly doing a good job here, meanwhile some of my cyber friends and i will be kicking ‘below the surface’ (theWrathof Grapes) and rooting for the ‘right stuff’ like those with your ‘divergent’ thinking.
    Kudos, mate.
