Can Zahid Hamidi become Malaysia's Biggest Hero? He has the opportunity.

 by Toffee Rozario

 Republished
14/.4/2017

I am republishing an article I published in July of 2016 on this blog.
This report is being republished in view of the latest developments in UMNO, and if Zahid decides like Muhyiddin to play a wait and see game, thinking that Najib will not make a move to get his cousin to replace Zahid and eventually him (Najib himself) he must be really foolish and proves what I said in this article in July of 2016.
"All said and done this man is not of that pedigree, he does not have the mental capacity to think strategic, he does not bother about the nation building either,  all he is bothered  about is himself and his own vested interests, because if he really cared about the nation and national interests he would have teamed up with Muhyiddin at the very onset and removed Najib."
Hishamuddin is certainly being readied to take over from Zahid, it will take only a few months to get it all readied, and a few more months to get the calm back in UMNO.
UMNO will not fall it is a party where members are all reliant on the party and no matter how big Zahid is, he will fall out of grace days after he is thrown out of UMNO, leaving Muhyiddin aside, if Anwar was forgotten so soon what is Zahid.
Now the question is: Can Zahid play the role  and be a Malaysian Hero?
In his latest move,  the appointment of Hishammuddin Hussein as a special functions minister in the Prime Minister’s Department,  close Najib loyalists say that,  Najib has been embarrassed  by Zahid's ignorance of political issues both domestically and Internationally more than just once and has been forced to institute new measures to get  worthy successor. "it's not all lost for Zahid, he cand redeem his future if he shows real improvement, but the view of Najib and his top advisers is that Zahid is not the man for the job.:"
It looks like inaction on the part of Zahid will lead to him being sidelined and consequently being cast into limbo.

Has he got the guts? Is he Jantn enough?
Very honestly I'd say he has no choice but to go for the juggler.
The opportunity is his for the taking

ALL  HE HAS TO DO IS TO TURN ON NAJIB SWIFTLY WITH FULL FORCE.
If he does even the die hard DAP supporters will vote for him, he'll outdo any PM in Malaysian History when he goes to the polls, but I think he lacks the mindset to act strategically.

Can he remove Najib before Muhyiddin does?
Zahid Hamidi could become one of Malaysia's greatest Prime Ministers and he could steal that from right under everyone's noses of everyone by just getting Najib arrested, investigated to the fullest extent of the law and charged.

The entire process has to be transparent and every Malaysian should be given the opportunity to know what is really happening, that way he will be seen  as the savior of the nation.

In the process he can also get Mahathir to shut up and stay out of politics, he has to bring in ministers of value, people who are academically and professionally qualified and experienced and most importantly men with  unblemished integrity.

Under much pressure to quit
It will not be an easy task for Zahid but it will not be too difficult either given his position as Minister of Home Affairs and the Deputy Prime Minister, he has to have the Police Chief and the Immigration Chief on his side, in the process he has to watch carefully the armed forces as it is under Najib's cousin Hishamuddin, the two departments the Police and Immigration come directly under his  Ministry and if he proceeds along this path he will ahve to be wary of the Police Chief, he will have to neutralise him.

He needs the  Immigration to ensure that all exits are locked once he launches the takeover.

This must not be mistaken to be a coup it is not as it will be done in accordance with the law.

Zahid  does not have to worry about Muhyiddin, because with such a move he will be seen as the more capable of the two to lead, and the entire country will back him from the onset except for a handful from Pekan perhaps.

Muhyiddin could have suceeded on this score but Muhyiddin lacks the strategic mindset so it did not materialise, Najib's advisers on the other hand neutralised Muhyiddin and took down the Attorney General.

After all Zahid has the biggest support in UMNO and that has been tested by way of the UMNO elections, Najib has hardly stood on his own steam in any UMNO election since the day he joined UMNO, it was either Mahathir's or Anwar's patronage that has seen Najib through,  on his own Najib is dispensable  and has no grassroots support, for him now it all about money, he said so too, he said the money in his account was for the elections given by super rich Saudi.

Malay street comedians have a hey day imitating the way Najib speaks, gestures and even looks round, he is a joke for many Malays and that is why Malay artists are quick to draw him, make songs about him, remember the Kangkung song, make jokes about him too.

Najib is the clown of UMNO, and the  Nero of Malaysia.

Once Zahid moves in and takes over he will have to speedily  take on the task of spring cleaning UMNO and getting rid of money politics, many Malays who have quit UMNO and joined PKR and PAS will then return to a clean UMNO.

One thing he can be sure of, is that he will win the confidence vote of the majority of Chinese if he seriously takes on Najib and his henchmen, he will not only get the Malay vote but he will certainly be doing the MCA and the Gerakan a big favour and will out perform both Najib and Abdullah at the next elections and I dare say he will come close to get what Mahathir got the firt time he faced the people.

On the other hand he can choose to remain a good and loyal servant of Najib and in so doing he is putting a noose around his own neck. I suspect that is exactly what he will do till it is too late.

Power is not in the office of the Prime Minister but with the people, many a ruler, Prime Minister and President who have used the power vested on them by the people for the wrong reasons,  have  learned that lesson and most  a bit too late and have lived and died to regret it. Some recent examples were even much stronger than Najib, Gadaffi and Saddam Hussein are good examples.

This is the hour and the moment when Malaysia needs a real hero and the only person with that opportunity now is Zahid Hamidi that is if he knows what opportunity is, he had better take before Najib makes that obvious move.

Blowing in the wind with lalang
Mr Ambitious playing wait and see
If that happens all the chances Zahid has got at present goes flying out of the window, there are people in UMNO who are maintaining an eerie silence, we do not hear much from the likes of Khairy Jamaluddin and even Sharizat except for a bark or two every now and then from the head of the women's wing, trying to convince Najib she is still with him, for she is after all a Mahathir supporter and looks on him as a fatherly figure the man who brought her in and a clansman.

Sharizat will play with the wind she is an absolute lalang, Khairyy is an opportunist and is waiting to see which way he should play his cards unlike  Nazri of course who has no love lost when it comes to Mahathir,  he hates Mahathir and the feeling is actually mutual so he will throw everything he's got behind Najib and  possibly turncoat if he sees the tide in favour of Zahid.

So Zahid has actually to pounce on the moment for once it passes him by, it passes him by forever, for after all in politics there are no permanent enemies and permanent friends and strategic  alliances can be struck within very short periods even between enemies.

All said and done this man Zahid  is not of that pedigree, he does not have the mental capacity to think strategic, he does not see the obvious with Najib's present move on Hishamuddin,  he does not bother about the nation building either,  all he is bothered  about is himself and his own vested interests, because if he really cared about the nation and national interests he would have teamed up with Muhyiddin at the very onset and removed Najib.

Going by that alone Zahid will never become the Prime Minister of Malaysia and neither a Malaysian Hero.

Ethno and Religio-Centrisim in Malaysia looks like state sponsored terrorism.

 

Are we facing subtle state sponsored terrorism in Malaysia?????? or

Has the country been allowed to stray into deliberate ethnocentrism (Jamal Yunos &Co., Ibrahim Ali among the many more)and now into religio-centrism  all very evidently supported by the Najib government, putting people of the other ethnic races, Chinese, Indians and other non Muslims in fear, real fear, not imagined not unreal but real.(Jamal Yunos is a current UMNO Division head)

A good example is the Low Yat incident, followed by many of Jamal Yunos' threats and and antics for which the police superficial or no action at all.

Even some high ranking ministers have acted as thugs in other cases and have got away with it, men taken into Police Custody, yes "Police Custody" die whilst in Police Custody, now who should be responsible for that?

The custodian of course.

A custodian has the responsibility to, "look after, to protect, to be guardian of" the person in his custody.

When a person is therefore under police custodian the Inspector General of Police has the responsibility of for the person in custody.

THE JAMAL YUNOS WARNING



The behaviors so far displayed have been condoned, no action has been taken and it seems to be spreading and getting worse by the day and needs to be questioned.

Is the government fo Najib Razak subtly and at a gradually increasing pace promoting ethnocentrism and now even religio-centrism?

The happenings in the country present, recent and past at least seem to point in that direction and we have all witnessed it with this government remaining openly indifferent to the attacks by its own people (from personalities or organisations either at the political level or by authorities) on the various other communities and religions, in the confines in what is apparently in their comfort zones from where almost anything can happen.

The actions of these people, who threaten the minorities with the support of the extremists within the political parties presents the government the opportunity  to give these unofficial leaders a sense of importance and courage, aids the promotion of the "ethnocentric and ethno-religious" culture that is fast taking root among some of these misguided Malays.


 
We have witnessed the likes of Jamal Yunos who goes about with almost total immunity except for the occasional slap on the wrist just to show the whole world that they are taking notice when it is really hogwash.

Malaysians are no fools, for the couple of times he was detained for a day or two the talk in the street was that Jamal Yunos was having coffee with the Police Inspector General (PIG)

Who can blame that public opinion when Jamal Yunos is allowed to go on threatening people and was even responsible for the assault of Bersih supporters.

In fact it is common knowledge that Jamal has been financed by this government and UMNO for some of his daring ethnocentric activities. 

The time has come to question this, as this is the time the world has taken even the most powerful man in the world on the issue of such ethno-centrist views and judging from what is happening both here in Malaysia and other Islamic countries against religious minorities we have to stand up and be noticed or draw world attention.

Most Malaysians who are victims of this ethono-centrism and religio-centrism know that this has become the centre piece of both the UMNO and PAS strategy.

In Malaysia  a Korean the son, grandson and brother of a murderous regime who was assassinated by that same regime in our country grabbed the headlines up to even this day in our national press only because he was murdered here and supposedly only because it is so easy to do that in Malaysia, given its history of other murders like that of Altantuya Shaaribu.

The North Korean Spy agencies would have seen Malaysia as the easiest place in in the world  where Police seem more concerned with anyone abusing the PM or his beloved wife then the security f its people at large.

These headlines in what is after all a government controlled media seems to highlight the Killing of Kim Jong-Nam,  when at home we have a more serious life and death issue of a Malaysian - A Christian Pastor, who was kidnapped in broad daylight, where, “one of the men was seen recording the incident while another diverted traffic".

All of the kidnappers were reportedly wearing black ski masks” and that reminds me of the way Anwar Ibrahim was arrested, leaving Malaysian with a lot of doubts and the rumor mills spinning at the fastest speed in a long time.

Who is more important or which case should be of greater importance the kidnapping of a Malaysian Pastor whose fate is yet to be known or a dead man who was a member of a rogue regime?

Let me put this openly, it has been alleged in the past that Pastor Koh was proselytising and among his flock were Muslims. these allegations had no substance and could not be sustantiated.


Was this not the reason the pastor was detained and was that not the reason on totally unfounded and baseless grounds the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) conducted a raid on a thanksgiving and fund-raising dinner organised by the group at a church in Petaling Jaya in 2011.
"By all accounts, Koh was a humanitarian who was committed to helping the less fortunate and the marginalised in Malaysian society"

His activities were carried out close proximity to Malay neighborhoods who did not object to his activities, in fact I am told he even helped Malays, yes Muslim Malays, is that wrong?

 Following the JAIS raid the Pastor was sent a bullet in the mail and there must have been a link so it will be wise for the police to begin their investigations at JAIS and not to exclude them, it was JAIS that brought the Pastor into the limelight with baseless claims that has led to radicals and maybe event terrorists to have kidnapped Pastor Raymond Koh.

A video that has gone viral and claimed to be taken from  a CCTV shows 3 similar vehicles trailing and then blocking what apparently is the pastors car, there seemed to be at least  two motorbikes and  least two  other cars in that convoy.


Why has there been a lack of focus on the Pastor's case, is it because he is not worth the publicity for our Police Chief and Najib who are now yearning for world attention? Or

Is it if the truth comes out there will be a lot of world attention for other reasons  focused on Malaysia?
 
Is Najib trying to curry favour the US government who has  identified him as MO1, in the MDB case or
about things he has been denying as the North Korean leader who is suspect No 1 in this case is enemy NO1 of the American Government?

Is it because this great Christian Pastor's  Christian mission responding to God as he is commanded to  does not go too well with the likes of Najib's government?

Anywhere else in the world such an incident would have had the attention of the  Prime Minister or the President, and Najib's silence on the issue is deafening.

Not only the Christians, butt the people of other faiths and races  have an interest sin this case and the PM has a duty to tell them something in relation to this case. Very sadly he has decided to remain silent, and instead the Government controlled mass media has relentlessly been following the case of a murdered ex-member of a rogue political regime and keeping the pastors case - wee, under a lid.

Why  has his murder take centre stage whilst the authorities are so silent about kidnap of Pastor Koh? Who is Kin Jong Nam after all? And  is Kim Jong-nam's case being used to hide the case of Pastor Raymond Koh?

PASTOR RAYMOD KOH

Pastor Koh is a man of God , he worked tirelessly with the poor the marginalised and even the drug addicts, HIV patients and he is a  a responsible and model Malaysian citizen, he  is a  man of God who deserves more protection of the Malaysian Police than Kim Jong-nam.

Pastor Raymond Koh Keng Joo is a Malaysian citizen who was victim of an illegal raid  before, and threatened by an anonymous bullet  and both incidents seems not to have  been taken seriously by the Police.


 If Pastor Koh did anything against the law it was not for the Islamic Law enforcers as  in the previous  case where JAIS to raided his centre to take the law inot their own hands. JAIS has no jurisdiction against the Christians, and yet it was they accomapanied that police who conducted the raid, if there were grounds fo the raid it should have been handled by the Police alone as JAIS is only for Muslims.

JAIS has jurisdiction  only over Muslims, and it has absolutely no jurisdiction over non Muslims, if they feel a non Muslim has broken the law it is for the Police to investigate him and arrest him, not JAIS.

JAIS who actually began this hate campaign against the Pastor by raiding his centre must be held accountable, it is this ethnoo-religious stirring up of hate that in my mind has led to this veryunfortunate incident which is not only criminal but terrorizes.

Why is it I get the feeling of a similar involvement in this case???

Kim Jong-nam

 This man would have been the leader of North Korea and the Public enemy No.1 of the American government had he not been dropped, he even held  very senior position in the ministry of  Public security. Later he was appointed the head of the DPRK computer committee in charge of developing the the country's IT industry.


He was a member of  a rogue regime that has murdered many of its citizens an by association is guilty of those crimes.

 Though he  was a frequent advocate of reform, and a habitual gambler who loved life in Macau where he would later settle and that is what made him fall out of grace with his father and he was replaced as heir apparent by his half brother Kim Jong-Nam.

This insignificant North Korean now dead has taken prominence over a Malaysian citizen, a religious leader,  case where the Prime Minister has shown more interest in the dead member of a rogue regime and  chooses to remain silent over the mysterious kidnapping of one of the nations good citizens.

Why???

What has he Kim Jong-nam done for Malaysia?

Who is he compared to Raymond Koh?

KOREAN'S MURDER TAKES PRECEDENCE OVER KIDNAP OF MALAYSIAN CHRISTTIAN PASTOR RAYMOND KOH

  by toffee

22/2/2017

WHO IS MORE IMPORTANT TO MALAYSIAN POLICE?

A KOREAN OR MALAYSIAN CITIZEN - PASTOR RAYMOND KOH?????????

 
Where is our  Pastor Raymond???

The brother of the North Korean President was murdered at KLIA in what is suspected to be an assassination carried out by North Korean agents.

The North Korean Government is really not concerned with the murder, they are only concerned that they are not implicated, although they are the biggest suspects in the case
Does the  dead Korean takes precedence over Pastor Raymond?
and all investigations carried out by the Malaysian Police force seems to point in that direction.


In the Backdrop of this case a senior and respected Malaysian pastor, Pastor Raymond Koh who is himself an evangelist was kidnapped in broad daylight by masked men and  the entire kidnap process was filmed by the kidnappers themselves.

 Pastor Raymond Koh founded Harapan Komuniti, a ministry that holds free tuition classes for children and English lessons for adults irrespective of race or creed.  

In 2011, the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) raided a fundraising dinner at the Damansara Utama Methodist Church and accused him of proselytizing Muslims.  That case was eventually dropped for lack of evidence, now the question is has that raid by JAIS anything to dow with this kidnapping???

What is mind boggling is that in the case of the assassination of Kim Jong-nam the half brother of the North Korean supreme leader,  the police have moved so fast with a degree of efficiency not seen for more than two decades by our police force.

They have managed to find out that the entire assassination was rehearsed to pin point precision in supermarkets in Malaysia, and they know that some of the suspects are now in Korea, and that two are are here in Malaysia presumably holed up in the Korean embassy.

The Inspector General of Police has even ask the North Korean embassy to cooperate and get the two to hand themselves in or that the police will issue a warrant of arrest for the two. The Police have in such a short time managed to piece up almost the whole case.

This is a case involving  one of the worlds foremost  espionage agencies, the North Koreans are notorious for this and have been for years, they have kidnapped Japanese women and taken them to North Korea for years, and their spies are in almost all the largest cities of the world, and yet our Police force got on top of this situation with almost lightening speed whilst there has been little or no progress with its own citizen the well respected Pastor Raymond Koh.

The silence over Pastor Koh's kidnapping is deafening

Is it because he is a Christian that the police are dragging their feet in this case, because they see  the Kim Jong-nam case as more high profile. A case where  the police feel that utilising their best resources to solve it  will improve their more than tarnished image, with custodial deaths, want of arrest and prosecution persons in the mould of Jamal Yunos, and many more cases where prosecution and arrests have been selective. 

Does the PM care about Malaysians?


The PM has commended the Police about the Kim Jong-nam case, he has come out and made statements about the North Korean Ambassador's actions and rightly so too, but why is he so quiet when a Pastor, a minister of the Church, a religious leader has been kidnapped? Why the silence.

Who is more important??? A Korean the brother of the North Korean President who himself seems implicated in the murder and who odes not care about his own citizen leave alone his brother, 

or Pastor Raymond Koh a Malaysian Citizen  - one of us?


Why is the family too finding it hard to believe that there is no news about the kidnap, they are being forced in desperation to to offer rewards for information of the kidnapping.

Are these kidnappers better than the espionage agents or North Korea that our Police force a stumped for clues about this case or are there some sensitivities over which the Police are negotiating with the kidnappers?

That begs the question, have the police made contact with the kidnappers?

Do the Police know who the kidnappers are?

Is Malaysia now infiltrated by ISIL and were these ISIL agents that kidnapped the pastor?

As as a Malaysian and  Christian I am duty bound to ask these questions, as Malaysians we are all entitled to ask these questions, and more without fear of favour and the Police force has a duty to let us know what is happening.

If not us at least the family and the Church of course  after which we can be told that they are being kept abreast with the latest developments. The country needs assurances that we and more so the Pastor is secure.

The Inspector General of Police has a duty to step forward and the Prime Minister must assure the Christians that they are safe as I, and I feel many of my Christian brethren feel that this kidnapping may have sinister religious motives considering the timing.

The Prime Minister has to come out too and reassure Malaysians that he is aware and has been briefed in this case.

This kidnap of a man of good standing, an upright citizen and a God fearing Pastor is an act terror  by persons we must  classify terrorists and nothing less.

Hadi Awang to launch the Trojan Horse for Najib



AS SUPPORT WANES....
PAS is doing a 360 degree turn,  the party is being deserted, as seen in the poorly attended  355 rally where Hadi boasted he'd get 200,000 attendees.
UMNO is PAS & PAS is UMNO

Almost immediately after the rally its Vice President Iskandar Abdul Samad came out saying it has no problems with PKR, "no one said anything about cutting ties with PKR," said  Iskandar, who is also Selangor executive council member. The executive council member and PAS VP is apparently ignorant of the stand of Hadi A wang, or has no regard for what the PAS President  says.

Although this PAS VP has been very vocal about his doubts of UMNO integrity he is still a PAS man and refuses to budge, whilst his boss Hadi A wang has openly declared that “there can be absolutely no cooperation between PAS and either Amanah or DAP”, and at the same time is very supportive of Najib with whom he has a truce of some sorts.

According to dissident UMNO sources Najib has convinced Hadi that PAS problems were not with UMNO but rather were  with
Done Deal with Hadi
Mahathir, and Hadi A wang has decided to accept that although he knows extremely well  that it was Hussein Onn who declared emergency in Kelantan and took over the state, with his famous

"Demi Allah" speech, and it was Musa who was in charge during the time of the Memali attack by the Police and not Mahathir.
Hadi Awang surely must have had other more compelling motives to align with Najib. 
Abdul Samad must  take a clear stand,  and so too must the opposition both jointly and individually as parties.
If he is sincere Abdul Samad  has to challenge Hadi and make his stand clear that regardless he still supports not only PKR but the new coalition as well and move out of PAS, if necessary.
("The hottest places in Hell are reserved for those who in time of moral crisis preserve their neutrality.".....Dante Alighieri... the Divine Comedy)

It is now becoming clear that PAS is rethinking its commitments to the grouping  as it is now beginning to feel that the ground it is now standing on is not as solid as it thought it would be.
Many PAS tickets were won on Chinese votes, and many because of PKR support for PAS too, PKR supporters and opposition supporters from DAP Indians, Chinese and Malays gave PAS that backing and Satuday's 360 rally shows that the PAS Malay base is shrinking and that is the only base they have, with the exception of one or two Indians. 
In the past PAS never won as many seats on its own, prior to becoming part of the Pakatan Rakyat, never ever in its history and that is now sinking in, PAS is getting worried as Amanah gains strength. And Hadi knows it will never happen again and PAS is now really worried.

It is rather obvious now that PAS does not have the backing of all these components, the support is swinging on to Amanah, and PAS has realized its folly, so if PAS decides to take the fight 3 way all the better, because the anti UMNO Malays who now  make up a good number, and the UMNO members who have now moved their allegiance to the opposition since 1MDB will move their votes to Amanah, and this has become very obvious.

Gaining strength with support increasing by the day


Even though the turnout for the 355 rally last Saturday included children it was very poorly attended indicating that PAS has lost its support. 
Hadi's dream of 200,000 supporters did not even number 20,000, and even if 2000 understood why they were really there for  that may have been a consolation.

PAS TURNING DESPERATE ALL FORCES AGAINST THEM EXCEPT NAJIB  
Now as desperation creeps into PAS for having made the wrong moves because of reasons that have become too obvious,  they have to sing a different tune, and they are trying to mend the fence, and PKR must ensure that PAS can't just can't be readmitted. 

They the PAS made that decision  to move out and out they must go, it was an empty threat to move Dap out and weaken the opposition,  their actions reveal they are traitors of Pakatan Rakyat, and can't be trusted, PAS will walk with Najib no matter where they stand after the elections that is the "done deal."

PAS has yet to file an action against Sarawak Report for its allegations that they were  handsomely paid off  by Najib, they threatened to do so and to date it has not been done it, what are they waiting for? 


They have made claims that they have filed the case, when in fact nothing has been done except for the fact that a law firm wrote to Sarawak report, which SR just ignored, and the time period given has way passed its time and nothing has been done todate.

Have they anything to be afraid of? Does Sarawak report have some damaging evidence with which they can expose PAS? 

Now to  create more doubt about their integrity  the PAS  Spiritual leader is alleged to own a new Porche on his meager salary and this is creating a lot of talk even among staunch Kelantan PAS supporters. 

Why, even Nik Aziz the former spiritual leader and MB of Kelantan only used an old Mercedes Benz he inherited from the previous Menteri Besar. Nik Aziz was the previous spiritual advisor, the PAS ordinary membership and grass root supporters are now questioning the integrity of the party's leadership and are having doubts about Sarawak Report's claims, just like many ordinary UMNO members are having doubts about the integrity of Najib and other leaders over the 1MDB saga.

Moreover the floods in Kelantan showed exactly how allocations meant for the poor and suffering are spent, and the accountability of the same, something  those victims will never forget.

According to UMNO members dissatisfied with present regime, and who are working against the party from within, a pact has been reached between Hadi and Najib on cooperation  now an after the General elections. 

THE TROJAN HORSE TO MOVE IN  
The New Alliance

Hadi has ben directed by Najib to use his resources to confuse the electorate and that is why different people in PAS today speak different languages,  it is being created as a strategy by PAS and UMNO to confuse the opposition electorate. The opposition has to be very careful.

I had a meeting with my friends in Masjid Tanah Melaka, at the house of an old friend, his sons are today in UMNO and enjoy a  strong following of youth in north Johor and they are very well connected to Johor UMNO groups who are working tirelessly to get rid of the present UMNO crop, they always say "it is time to purge UMNO, as it cannot function as it is today, all the corrupt have to be wiped out or a new party has to come to replace them," and now they say,  "it may be time to really wipe out UMNO as it is corrupt to the core."

These young Turks in UMNO as I refer to them have told me that to unseat both Najib and Ahmad Zahid is difficult but not impossible, and that is what they are aiming to do, they already are doing groundwork in Bagan Dato Zahid's constituency, "the PAS members there know him to be a 'rogue' and an 'opportunist' " said the guy who calls himself Toni, a full blooded Parit Besar Malay. They are currently focusing on the PAS members there many of whom are disappointed with the party for aligning with UMNO, they have a total dislike for the DPM.

The young Turks are adopting a strategy to weaken Najib's and Zahid's home base to get them to concentrate there, so that, "there will be less time to lie to the electorate elsewhere", as one of them put it.

The opposition on the other hand has its game plan being hatched, there will be revelations about Hadi and three other PAS leaders that will discredit them and expose their true colours. 

"Hadi is not as clean as he portrays to be and everyone knows that he is not a worthy successor of Nik Aziz, he has even corrupted Nik Aziz son and a growing number of  people in Kelantan are now not prepared to accept that anymore", I was told by a current PAS member who says he has chosen to remain in PAS to know what is going on behind the scenes.

There is certainly a move to get UMNO out, there are talks by these young Turks with the relatively young MPs from Amanah, and PKR to jointly canvass new members from UMNO and PAS. For the time being  Parti Pribumi Bersatu has deliberately been left out of this campaign they say, "we still have to wait and see although we will lend our total support to any PPB candidate in the coming general elections".

 PAS IS UMNO AND UMNO IS PAS

The young Turks want to sound a warning to the opposition, they feel they should immediately distance themselves from PAS or risk failure at the next GE. 

"PAS MUST BE TOLD IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS 'OUT YOU GO WE HAVE NO PLACE FOR YOU!!!' AND IT MUST BE SAID NOW!!" said one of these young Turks  who refused to be identified, he wore a skull cap, smokes Salem and  stands about 183 cm tall  real imposing figure who speaks fluent English, Malay, Jawi and Tamil, but assures me he has no Indian blood but is part Arab. 
UMNO IS PAS AND PAS IS UMNO

"The people must be told now and before it is too late that PAS is UMNO and UMNO is PAS, and there is nothing different between them now, or face the risk of confusing the electorate by not doing so," said the  American trained psychologist in their midst, he is from Johor.
