GAZA

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at www.chedet.com on December 30, 2008 4:18 PM

(English translation at end of write-up)

1. Dunia ternampak mengutuk Israel kerana serangan tidak berperikemanusiaannya ke atas Gaza. Tetapi seperti biasa dunia tidak membuat apa-apa. Kenapa tidak? Kerana Amerika Syarikat berada di belakang Israel.

2. Dunia seharusnya juga mengutuk Amerika Syarikat. Pesawat pejuang dan bom yang digunakan adalah buatan Amerika. Jika ada kehilangan senjata, Amerika akan menggantikannya. Dan Amerika juga akan membiayai Israel bagi meneruskan keganasannya.

3. Selagi Amerika menyokong Israel kita akan lihat kebiadaban Israel membelakangkan pendapat dunia dan mereka akan terus membunuh orang Arab Palestin dan menghancurkan penempatan dan bandar mereka.

4. Apabila saya katakan yang Israel menguasai dunia secara proksi, media dan Kerajaan Amerika mengutuk saya. Tetapi hakikatnya ialah hanya calon yang direstui Israel sahaja yang boleh menang pilihanraya di Amerika. Tunggu sahajalah pendirian Presiden baru Amerika.

5. Sementara itu kita harus sedar secara kecil-kecilan kita juga bantu Israel. Buah pisang kaki (persimmon) dari Israel ada dijual di pasaraya Kuala Lumpur.

6. Singapura adalah saluran bagi Israel menembusi pasaran Malaysia.

*****


1. The world seem to be condemning Israel for the inhuman attack against Gaza. But as usual the world does nothing. Why not? Because Israel is backed by the United States of America.

2. The world should also condemn the United States. The planes and the bombs are all made in America. If they are lost the US will replace them. And the US will finance Israel so as to continue its bestiality.

3. For as long as the US backs Israel, we will continue to see Israel ignoring world opinion as it murders the Palestinians Arabs, and destroys their towns and cities.

4. When I said Israel rules the world by proxy, the American media and Government condemned me. But it is a fact that only those candidates approved by Israel can win elections in America. So much for democracy in the United States. Lets see the stand of the United States' new President.

5. Incidentally we should also realise that we are, in a small way, helping Israel. Israeli persimmons (pisang kaki) are sold in supermarkets in Kuala Lumpur.

6. Singapore is Israel's channel to penetrate the Malaysian market.

THE AUTOMATIC GOVERNMENT

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at www.chedet.com on December 29, 2008 10:13 AM

1. I came home from Yemen on Thursday, Dec 25th. It was Christmas Day and offices were closed. I was tired and appreciated the holiday. I was too tired to visit Christian friends even. I merely wished them Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, via my blog.

2. The next day I went to work. Kuala Lumpur was quite empty. Then I realised that many, including Government servants had decided to take Friday off, so that they could have a really long holiday because Saturday and Sunday would be weekends and as a bonus Monday would also be a holiday being the 1st of the Muslim New Year. Five days holiday. We can go round the world in that time.

3. But after Monday holiday, workers in the public and private sectors can take time off for two days until Jan 1st when we will have another holiday. If we are smart we can actually have eight days holiday. Time to fly two times round the world.

4. What about work? Not to worry. During that time the Government and the private companies will be on automatic. Aircraft can fly on auto-pilot safely. We are on the ground. We will not crash.

5. It shows that we really don't need a Government. It will just coast along even if no one is steering it. That is how good we have become at governing.

6. I am sorry for the poor policemen and other staff who have to be on duty during the holidays.

7. Have a nice holiday - or is it "holidays".

TERRORISM

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at www.chedet.com on December 26, 2008 4:47 PM

1. Every day we hear, we read and we watch on television reports about acts of terrorism somewhere. No place seems to be free from terrorism.

2. From Indonesia to New York, suicide bombers, airplanes, cars and vans loaded with explosives are being blown up, killing people and destroying buildings almost with impunity.

3. Security measures have been taken, using sophisticated and costly methods, specially trained anti-terror squads, electronic detectors and tedious body searches, including scrutiny of shoes, hand bags and luggage. But the terror attacks have gone unabated. We seem to have to live with this danger striking where we least expect with no end in sight.

4. Great thinkers, journalists, political analysts and politicians of all shades and colour have written at length and given their reasons and their analysis of these acts of terror, why people should be willing to blow themselves up frequently killing innocent people.

5. The analysts and writers have attributed such acts as being due to the teachings of the Prophet of Islam, as the tendencies of Muslims to be violent, as the expressions of the clash of civilisation, as the jealousies against people who are better off themselves. They blame the extremism of the Wahabi sect of Islam and the hatred of leaders of the sect such as Osama bin Laden.

6. Based on their analysis they prescribed measures to curb terrorist activities, arresting suspected, subjecting them to torture and humiliation.

7. But still the acts of terror have gone on and show signs of escalating. Muslim airline passengers are made to go through humiliating searches, detained for hours. Hundreds of so-called terrorist suspects have been detained without trial for years, often humiliated and tortured with no means of seeking redress.

8. But through all these the real reason for these violent acts of terror has been deliberately ignored. It is as if the Europeans and the Americans are in a state of denial. It is as if all the European and American leaders fear to state the truth. Their media too appear to conspire to avoid mentioning the true cause of the anger and frustration of the people who commit these acts of terror.

9. Yet if we pause to think we cannot help but notice that these acts began with the forceful seizure of the land of the Palestinian Arabs in order to create the formerly non-existent state of Israel; the expulsion of the Arab Palestinians from their homes and their country, the killings of the Arabs by Zionist terrorists, and the incarceration of the Arab Palestinians in makeshift refugee camps for the last 60 years or so.

10. This is the basic and original cause of the acts of terror. Initially the neighbouring Arab countries tried to regain Palestinian land through conventional war. But Israel with the help of America and Britain defeated the forces of Syria, Jordan and Egypt.

11. Not only were they defeated but Israel grabbed more Arab land. At each attempt to regain Palestinian land, Israel together with America and Britain seized more Arab land.

12. In the area of Palestine which the Israelis have not seized, Jewish settlements were set up. Roads were built on Arab land which the Arab Palestinians are not allowed to use. High walls are built to break up Arab villages, preventing the villagers from contacting their close relatives even.

13. In the meanwhile the world watched the expulsion of Arab Palestinian and their plight with little concern and less sympathy.

14. Against the powerful Israeli forces the Palestinians could do nothing. They have no guns or tanks or fighter planes. Angry and frustrated they tried guerrilla war. But this was to no avail.

15. Eventually they resorted to what is referred to as terror attacks. Not having delivery vehicles they made use of suicide bombers, blowing themselves up.

16. Instead of resolving the Palestinian issue the Americans and the British decided to attack other Muslim countries. Afghanistan and Iraq were invaded, and Syria and Iran are threatened. Naturally this did not help solve the Palestinian issue. It simply aggravated the problem. And now other Muslim people, knowing that there can be no solution by their Government have adopted the same terror tactics as the Palestinians.

17. I was in Syria recently to attend a conference on the "Right of Return" of the Palestinian people I was also in Iran and Yemen. Everywhere I went I found among the ordinary people anger and hatred directed at the Jews, the Americans and the British. Their Governments are terrified by the British and the Americans. But their people are more and more bitter. There will be many who would be willing to blow themselves up even if they will not succeed in liberating their countries.

18. Terror attacks will not diminish for as long as the Palestinians are forced to remain as refugees, are denied the right of return.

19. America will have a new President soon. If the membership of his Cabinet and his staff are anything to go by, there is little that Obama can do, even if he wants to solve the Palestinian problem. All American Presidents and legislators are hostages of Israel. Fail to side with Israel and they will be defeated at the next elections.

20. "Terrorism" is going to be a part of the world scene for a very, very long time.

IJN PRIVATISATION

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at www.chedet.com on December 19, 2008 3:57 PM

1. I have always been for privatisation. In fact privatisation started during my time. People know all about the Government companies, departments and functions which were privatised. Some were successful, some were not. But I don't think people know about privatisation proposals which had been rejected. I know about them because the proposals were studied carefully before they were rejected. There were reasons of course but there was no necessity to make public the rejections or the reasons.

2. With regard to the Institut Jantung Negara, I must say I have a personal attachment to it. I don't think I need to explain why. The IJN is really the institution that is physically closest to my heart.

3. IJN is a unique institution. It started as a Government department but the Government felt that it was unfair to put the staff on Government pay scheme. So it was corporatised. As a corporate body it has been successful in giving the people good service. It is one institution that has not been subjected to criticisms and vilifications by the press or the public as most other institutions have been. We often hear of its many "firsts" and we are proud of them.

4. The doctors and nurses are very well trained and efficient. During the 50 days I was hospitalised there I never heard them complain about their salary or how they have been treated. They seem to me to be a happy lot. They are not mercenary, thinking only of their pay. I think they love their work; they love to see their patients recover and go back to normal, especially their transplant patients.

5. The service they provide is excellent. People usually complain about their personal grouses to me. But not a single patient, rich or poor that I have met has voiced complaints to me or to the people I know about their bad experience with IJN.

6. Maybe I am biased because I owe my life to IJN. But I think as a corporatised institution the IJN has done extremely well.

7. If it is going to give the same service to civil servants and pensioners the Government will have to pay out the same amount of money after privatisation. How does the Government gain? Besides if the poor are going to be charged the same low fees and charges how does Sime Darby make money? Or will the Government continue to subsidise an ever growing bill for treatment of the poor? If so why is there a need to privatise? How does Sime Darby, a business entity make money when 80 per cent of the patients are poor?

8. Some of the major surgeries performed there are so costly that the IJN lost money on them. Will Sime Darby shoulder these losses?

9. There are far too many questions about this privatisation which need to be answered. Some I think cannot be answered.

10. I seldom oppose privatisation but this is one instant when I feel privatisation is the wrong thing to do.

11. Leave this institution as it is. It is our pride and it is doing a good job as it is.

12. The Barisan Nasional Government is not too popular today. Why do something that may give the opposition another issue to belabour the Government.

SNIPPETS - MELAYU MUDAH LUPA / THE NO BRIDGE DECISION

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at www.chedet.com on December 17, 2008 2:49 PM

Melayu Mudah Lupa

1. Kadang-kadang kita lupa. Oleh itu izinkan saya catat semula laporan akhbar Berita Harian (Mac 24, 1993) berkenaan kenyataan Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim apabila DYMM Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Sultan Azlan Shah memberi perkenan kepada Undang-Undang Perlembagaan (pindaan) 1993 (kekebalan Raja-Raja).

2. Katanya "Isu ini sebenarnya memberi pengajaran berguna kepada semua pihak termasuk Raja".

3. Dalam New Straits Times (Mac 24, 1993) pula dilaporkan: "In Butterworth, UMNO Vice-President and Finance Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said the royal assent has helped close the chapter on the subject which he described as a milestone in the process of political maturity of the nation.

4. "One lesson to be learnt from the whole episode is that the issue was not entirely confined to the abolition of the Malay Rulers legal immunity in their personal capacity.

5. "It concerns the understanding and maturity of all quarters involved with regard to the real meaning of freedom and the rule of law".

6. Lain padang lain belalang.


The No Bridge Decision

1. The Star reports on the traffic congestion at the new Sultan Iskandar Customs, Immigration and Quarantine Complex in Johore Bahru. Most of the congestion was caused by traffic from Singapore entering Malaysia.

2. At the risk of boring visitors to my blog, may I point out that the idea of a bridge to replace the causeway, connected to the CIQ building by an elevated highway was in order to avoid the traffic congestion. Replacing the elevated highway with a road at ground level must cause a clash between traffic to end from Singapore and the Johore Bahru east / west traffic.

3. The problem can only get worse as more and more cars will take to the road in future.

4. But we must endure these jams because we must not annoy our neighbour.

PAK MAN TELO - NEW YORK

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at www.chedet.com on December 15, 2008 4:34 PM

1. Today's Starbiz reports that 50 billion US dollars of investor's money were lost by just one man.

2. Bernard Madoff invested US5000 of his money to set up an investment firm. Such was his personality and sales talk that he was able to convince lots of rich people to invest their money with him. The returns were so good that his fund became exclusive, open to select people only.

3. When he was arrested recently by the FBI he admitted that "There is no innocent explanation".

4. We got on to Pak Man Telo ponzi scheme quite early. He caused the naïve Malaysian who invested in his scheme several millions, I believe.

5. Apparently the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of America did not detect Madoff's operation for years. He was even made Chairman of Nasdaq Stock Market.

6. He was living a high life, with a 5 million dollar mansion in Manhattan and membership of the most exclusive clubs.

7. Pak Man Telo would probably have done better if he had gone to New York where he would not have the Malaysian Government overseeing such activities. Or perhaps the SEC might learn some lessons from Malaysia as indeed the US Government has learnt about bailing out companies.

MOZZARELLA CHEESE

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at www.chedet.com on December 10, 2008 2:13 PM

1. I was in Langkawi the day before Raya Haji and had a busy time looking at my projects.

2. The horse breeding is doing well with three foals sired by Albarik, a pure Arab. The foals are also doing well. We expect more this year.

3. We are looking for an Arab mare so that we will produce pure Arab foals by Albarik.

4. The local boatyard is making good progress with my fibreglass catamaran. I ordered the boat partly to give the yard a chance to build something it had not tried before, partly to use the boat for catching squids. It is the squid season in Langkawi and at night you can see hundreds of boats with their powerful spotlights forming a semi-circle in the sea. The squids get attracted to the lights and it is easy to catch several pounds of squids with a hooked line or net.

5. I was saddened to see quite mature teak and mahogany trees being chopped down to widen the road north to Ayer Hangat.

6. My friend had tried to bring in a foreign wood carver to Langkawi to start a new cottage industry. It seems that our immigration policy does not allow anyone above 50-years to come and work in Malaysia. What a pity. Our skilled engineers, pilots, architects etc can go out but skilled foreigners cannot come in. On the other hand unskilled labourers may come in legally or illegally.

7. The net result is that our brains are being drained out, no brains are coming in but the brainless may come in and even settle in our country. You can figure out the end results. I hope the Government realises this and maybe design a new immigration policy.

8. Then my friends took me to the most interesting new industry in Langkawi. It is the production of mozzarella cheese, the cheese used in making pizza.

9. Mozzarella is an Italian cheese and the small facility is owned and operated by an Italian who's married to a Malaysian. He also operates a butchery where the cows are slaughtered and the meat is properly and professionally cut by a young Langkawi person who had been trained in Italy (actually in San Marino, an independent state in Italy).

10. I tasted freshly made mozzarella and it was delicious. Mozzarella is made with buffalo milk and the little "factory" is next to a Government project to breed buffaloes.

11. One day I hope this Langkawi mozzarella factory will become a tourist attraction, and the world will eat Langkawi mozzarella in their pizzas.

12. Telaga Harbour in the Northwest of Langkawi is full of yachts, including mega yachts. People say the marina reminds them of the Mediterranean, with Italian, Spanish, and Russian restaurants as well as a Chinese steam-boat restaurant. You can sit at a table on the harbour front and watch the yachts (some 130 of them) in the protected harbour.

13. There is a plan by someone to put some kind of floating platform in the marina for performances to be held.It is a great idea but the turning circle for yachts in the marina is small. The platform, I am afraid, will get in the way for big boats. However, I have no say in this matter.

Cuit sedikit untuk rasuah

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at www.chedet.com on December 5, 2008 2:12 PM

1. Nampaknya ada orang yang tidak senang kerana saya kecam amalan sogokan wang dalam pencalonan jawatan-jawatan UMNO.

2. Yang jelas daripada teguran terhadap saya oleh orang ini ialah baginya sogokan wang tidak salah bahkan ianya adalah amalan biasa dalam demokrasi.

3. Secara tidak langsung orang ini mendedahkan nama calon-calon yang terlibat dengan sogokan wang. Kononnya teguran saya ialah untuk menjejaskan peluang mereka ini untuk dapat kemenangan. Orang ini sendiri nampak terlibat dengan kegiatan ini. Jika tidak kenapakah dia beria-ia mempertahankan sogokan wang oleh calon tertentu. Jika semua calon terlibat dengan politik wang, apa perlunya mempertahankan calon tertentu dan menuduh tulisan saya sebagai sokongan kepada calon yang bertanding dengan mereka ini. Sekali lagi secara tidak langsung orang ini ternampak percaya calon yang saya dituduh menyokong tidak memberi sogokan. Jika mereka ini juga terlibat maka kecaman saya tentulah terkena kepada mereka juga.

4. Kononnya pengkritik ini penyokong kuat saya. Sokongan kepada siapa pun tidak boleh secara buta-tuli. Saya tak minta saya disokong secara buta-tuli.

5. Tetapi pengakuan bahawa pengkritik adalah penyokong kuat saya bermakna selain daripada kecaman saya terhadap politik wang pengkritik sokong penglibatan saya dalam "Mencatur UMNO". Kenapa penglibatan saya dalam percaturan politik UMNO dahulu tidak dikecam oleh pengkritik, bahkan disokong?

6. Saya belum pernah dengar sesiapa menyokong dan menghalalkan rasuah. Walaupun mereka terlibat dengan rasuah biasanya mereka anggap rasuah sebagai satu jenayah, satu perbuatan haram yang berdosa.

7. Inilah kali pertama saya dapati ada orang yang menghalalkan rasuah. Bagi orang ini asalkan dapat duit apa peduli jika akhirnya bangsa dan negara dijual oleh perasuah yang dipilih memerintah negara melalui sogokan.

8. Na'uzubillah. Barang dijauhi Allah daripada bencana ini.

ABDULLAH'S MARCH

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at www.chedet.com on December 4, 2008 5:48 PM

1. When Dato Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi announced that he would be stepping down in March 2009 he said he needed the extra three months to complete certain missions he had set out to do.

2. These initiatives, he said, are needed "to regain the country's competitiveness, to face the challenges that the world has in store for us".

3. Among the initiatives are the reform of the judiciary, the setting up of an Anti-Corruption Commission, Special Complaints Commission, equitable distribution of the fruits of growth, strengthening and enlarging the social safety net, development of corridor initiatives etc etc.

4. It is now December 2008. So far we have seen no progress at all in any of these glorious initiatives. Instead the Prime Minister is busy visiting foreign countries with his family in the beatiful, big and new Airbus A320.

5. After announcing that there is no money to build the second Penang Bridge, the contract was signed during the PM's China visit to build the bridge after all. There is a lot of money involved here.

6. In Uzbekistan, Petronas is to invest a few hundred million Ringgit. Trips are also scheduled for Iran and Turkmenistan. No doubt more contracts and more money would be involved. Some contractors will benefit.

7. After failing to implement any of the promises made in the 2004 or 2008 elections, it looks like nothing is being done either with regards to the promise to carry out a variety of so-called reforms as mentioned in the press statement on why the PM would step down in March 2009 - three months after the scheduled UMNO General Assembly.

8. But the visits to foreign countries to sign contracts which were not mentioned in the statement are being assiduously carried out.

9. I wonder why.

10. On the political front Abdullah has been busy campaigning for his chosen candidates for the posts of Deputy President, Wanita chief and Pemuda chief and other posts which will lead to appointments as Ministers.

11. Najib is going to be surrounded by Abdullah's people and through these people Abdullah will control the Government of Najib.

12. Najib has already abandoned Muhyiddin, the fierce critic of Abdullah. He does not want to incur the displeasure of his boss. Would he refuse to appoint Abdullah's nominees? Would he dare go against them?

Snippets - Zaid Ibrahim and UMNO

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at www.chedet.com on December 3, 2008 3:48 PM

1. UMNO has now sacked Zaid Ibrahim from the party.

2. This is the man who was held in high esteem by UMNO President Dato Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi so that from among hundreds of UMNO leaders of sorts, he chose Zaid Ibrahim, a dubious character who could not be accepted even by his own Kota Bahru division and was not made a candidate in the 2008 Election. It is known that Zaid was in Perth, Australia during the elections.

3. Seeing Zaid's behaviour toward UMNO lately, the rumours that he was supporting the opposition against the UMNO/Barisan Nasional candidate in the March 2008 Elections must have been true.

4. Now Zaid has left his benefactor with controversial issues which can only undermine the support for UMNO / Barisan Nasional whatever his benefactor may try to do. And Najib will inherit these headaches when he takes over.

5. Seems that I am not the only one to make wrong choices.

MAC 2009

As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at www.chedet.com on December 2, 2008 1:06 PM

1. Negara tertunggu-tunggu Mac 2009 di waktu mana peralihan kuasa dikatakan akan berlaku.

2. Kepercayaan bahawa ini akan berlaku diasaskan kepada pengumuman oleh Dato' Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi yang dia akan serah jawatannya kepada Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak pada tarikh tersebut. Abdullah juga menyatakan yang dia tidak akan bertanding jawatan Presiden Umno dalam pemilihan ahli Majlis Tertinggi Umno pada Mac 2009. Justeru tidak ada bahagian yang mencalonkan Abdullah sebagai Presiden.

3. Biasanya sesiapa yang menjadi Presiden Umno akan menjadi Perdana Menteri jika Barisan Nasional menang dan menjadi parti yang terbesar dalam Parlimen. Tetapi ini tradisi sahaja. Jika diberi kepercayaan oleh majoriti ahli Dewan Rakyat, yang bukan Presiden Umno dan Pengerusi BN juga boleh jadi Perdana Menteri.

4. Dalam parti-parti lain di Malaysia terdapat Menteri Besar dan Ketua Menteri yang tidak terdiri daripada Presiden parti. Demikian sementara Haji Hadi adalah Presiden PAS, yang menjadi Menteri Besar ialah Datuk Seri Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat.

5. Dalam DAP sementara pemimpin besarnya ialah Lim Kit Siang tetapi dia tidak jadi Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang. Keadaan yang sama terdapat dalam parti Keadilan di Selangor. Bahkan jika ketua Pakatan ialah Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim, dia tidak mengetuai mana-mana Kerajaan yang dikuasai oleh Pakatan.

6. Berita angin sudah berkembang bahawa walaupun Najib akan jadi Presiden Umno, tidak semestinya dia akan jadi Perdana Menteri. Berita yang didengar ialah Abdullah masih berminat meneruskan jawatan Perdana Menteri.

7. Jika diambil kira sikap pemimpin dan ramai ahli Umno, kemungkinan ini berlaku tidak mustahil. Mereka tidak akan menentang Abdullah kerana mereka amat selesa dengan kepimpinan beliau dan nikmat tertentu yang mereka dapati darinya.

8. Tetapi pengekalan Abdullah sebagai PM tetap akan menyemarakkan kebencian rakyat kepada Umno dan BN. Politik akan bergolak sepanjang masa sehingga pilihanraya. Dan apabila datang pilihanraya percayalah majoriti rakyat akan tolak Umno dan BN.

9. Rakyat tidak berminat dengan parti-parti lawan tetapi mereka tidak ada pilihan. Umno sudah jadi parti pimpinan ramai perasuah dan jika Umno menang bersama BN, maka yang akan memerintah Malaysia ialah orang yang menjadi Perdana Menteri dan Menteri melalui rasuah dan mereka ini tetap akan amalkan rasuah dalam Kerajaan untuk dapat balik "pelaburan" mereka dan lebih daripada itu.

10. Jika rakyat Malaysia ingin elak daripada nasib buruk ini menimpa negara, rakyat perlu beritahu UMNO dan kepimpinannya awal-awal lagi iaitu rakyat akan tolak UMNO jika orang yang diketahui umum terlibat dengan rasuah dipilih sebagai pemimpin UMNO pada pemilihan Majlis Tertinggi Mac 2009.

11. Demikian juga jika Abdullah cuba terus menjadi Perdana Menteri selepas Mac 2009, rakyat harus beri mesej yang jelas yang UMNO serta BN akan dikalahkan.

12. UMNO pimpinan perasuah dan perosak tidak harus diberi kuasa memimpin negara yang tercinta ini.

13. Kerosakan yang telah dilakukan selama lima tahun Abdullah menerajui Kerajaan Malaysia sudah cukup buruk. Fikirkanlah akan keburukan yang akan dilakukan kepada UMNO dan negara apabila seluruh kepimpinan Kerajaan terdiri daripada perasuah.

14. Dalam UMNO sekarang sudah ada orang yang berpendapat kalau ini adalah kali terakhir mereka akan dapat sogokan, lebih baiklah mereka menerima. Sekurang-kurang mereka akan kecapi "nikmat" sekali. Mungkin tidak akan ada peluang lagi. Apa jadi kepada UMNO, bangsa dan negara adalah masalah lain, bukan masalah mereka. Bagi mereka "nikmat" tidak boleh ditolak, walaupun hanya RM100.

15. Bagi mereka ini generasi akan datang akan kutuk mereka apabila orang Melayu di Malaysia sudah jadi seperti orang Melayu di Singapura di mana mereka menjadi "hamba" kepada kaum-kaum lain. Inilah nasib yang menunggu orang Melayu kerana lebih sedia disogok daripada mempertahan dan memelihara kuasa bangsa.
