Special Letter to Malaysians (Part 3)
My fellow Malaysians,
The time has come for us to stand up and revolt against the most corrupt Prime Minister in the history of Malaysia
The Germans could dump Chancellor Helmut Kohl for the simple reason he was at the helm of power for too long (16 years) and not because he was corrupt or inefficient. There is every compelling reason for us to also dump Mahathir who not only has been there for 17 years already but lately has been behaving truly like an authoritarian and a dictator who is bringing the country into the abyss of destruction. We must put a halt to his stewardship as he has committed major sins that we are not prepared to forgive. For the sake of the nation and party (in the case of UMNO members) people should revolt now and should not wait further as this can spell disaster to the country.
One major sin of Mahathir which is public knowledge is his enrichment of his family members and here he is worst that Suharto. Suharto, from what we know only enriched his children but in the case of Mahathir not only his children who benefited immensely but also his brothers, sisters, nephews, etc. His children are board members of 200 companies (if you do not believe check with ROC) and shareholders of a great number of major companies. If one company pays RM2000 monthly as board fee (a very conservative figure) then the Mahathir children easily collect RM400,000 a month. Meaning, if equally shared, Marina, Mokhni, Mukhriz and Mirzan gets RM100,000 each for doing nothing.
This is why during one weekend lunch not long after the downfall of Suharto, when Datin Asmah suggested Mahathir should seriously consider resigning gracefully before being kicked out by the people, all the children (except Marina) objected the suggestion. They knew very well without daddy around they would miss all these opportunities. I don't have to mention the many big companies controlled by his children as this is well-known. We all know who controls Misc, Pantai Medical Centre, etc. Another information that not many people (Muslims in particular) know is that the company, Transmile Sdn Bhd which has been given the exclusive license to carry passengers to Mecca during haj season belongs to Mirzan. This is "sure" money because the planes are full of passengers. The exclusive right was given to him by Tabong Haji whose chairman is Dato' Ahmad Razali, Datin Asmah's brother and the most corrupt ex-MB of Selangor. (For the information of Muslim passengers, the planes used to carry them were certified not fit to travel).
Mahathir has given projects (if you total up all of them) worth billions of dollars to Datin Zaleha Ali (already 80 years old and should be spending her time praying, etc. to God), Jaffar Ali (please look at the profile of his architectural firm; you will be shocked to see the number of projects given by Mahathir), General (Ret.) Hashim (the Sukom chief - in the words of one senior Sukom official, the money he made from the 'gift' given by Mahathir could last for a few generations) and not to mention Ahmad Razali himself (who is going to destroy Tabong Haji). The list is endless. As to his nephews, please check what Dr. Aminudin Rose and Azlan Razali got. You wouldn't believe it (I hope to reveal many more after this).
In addition, Datin Asmah is also making tons of money through a company based in Subang Jaya. The job of this company is only to collect commissions. Major projects are given to the company and it will then be passed to companies which are prepared to pay 5% commission of the value of the project. If you are lucky, you can negotiate and pay only 3% (the Manager will tell you subject to mama's approval).
Mahathir has been too long in power and finds the seat too comfortable. He would use anybody as long as this will prolong his stay. He used Musa Hitam as Musa was immensely popular among the Malay nationalists but refused to dump Tengku Razaleigh (despite Musa's insistence) to neutralise Musa's influence. He knew both Sanusi and Dollah Badawi were rising stars in UMNO but he did not want any one of them to be too strong to later pose a challenge to him. He therefore brought in Anwar Ibrahim. Both Dollah and Sanusi were traditional enemies of Anwar right during their 'youth' days. Sanusi, as President of MAYC aspired to be the President of MYC but never materialised as Anwar was already entrenched in the organisation since his student days. Dollah who was once GPMS's President could not swallow the fact that GPMS always trailed behind Anwar's PKPIM / ABIM. Mahathir's approach in politics as openly admitted by him in 1987 during the Kelantan UMNO state Liaison committee meeting that politics is basically "divide and rule". To survive in politics, he contends, a leader has to practice this policy well. Everybody thought he was merely expressing an opinion but in actuality he faithfully practiced it. Truly he is a Marchiavellian and he is showing it now.
Now he is bringing back Tengku Razaleigh into the fold after realising Anwar was too strong a deputy. He admitted of Anwar's growing political strength to his close friends like Ananda Krishnan and Vincent Tan. He has sidelined Sanusi at national level as Sanusi has already served him well in 1980s. And now he is again promoting Dollah Badawi and gradually bringing Tengku Razaleigh into the party mainstream. He now contacts Tengku Razaleigh 3-4 times a week. But all the three are not reliable. But deep in his heart, he does not forget Dollah Badawi who in 1987 called him a liar and a great dictator (please refer to newspaper cuttings at that time) and Najib who is always a lalang (not reliable). As to Tengku, it would be a major mistake if he thinks Tengku has forgotten what he had done to him. Tengku keeps on telling his close lieutenants (who still cannot forget and forgive Mahathir) that to be close to Mahathir is part of his grand strategy to make a comeback but when he captures power, he would go after Mahathir, even Mahathir is already dead! Indeed, he has never forgiven Mahathir! Mahathir would definitely pay a price for his many misdeeds for he has humiliated too many people during his tenureship as PM.
He humiliated Musa, Dato Harun, Johan Jaffar, Ahmad Nazri, Ahmed Sebi, Rahim Dahlan and now Anwar Ibrahim. He is truly a man with no heart. These are the people who helped him to become "great" and what he is today. Musa's service to him is too well-known. Similarly if not because of Dato Harun's help he would still be in political limbo. Johan Jaffar and Ahmad Nazri, the 2 prominent journalists played crucial roles in moulding a favourable public opinion of him. Ahmad Sebi, a super rich man now in Daim's team was once put in prison (the operasi Lalang in 1987 and released on Anwar's intervention) by Mahathir despite his important role in ensuring Mahathir's victory against Tengku Razaleigh (Team B). He was the financial director of Team A. In short, Mahathir is really a crook, truly a man without conscience and feelings, and only thinks highly of himself.
Fellow Malaysians, the time has come for us to speak our mind, to show our anger at Mahathir Mohamad. Malaysia is a beautiful country with her peace loving people. But now the good name of the country is dirtied and tarnished by Mahathir. Anywhere in the world today you will get news about Malaysia being prominently printed in front page or strategic middle pages of all major newspapers in the world - and all give a very negative picture of Malaysia. Mahathir is viewed by these major dailies as an authoritarian and dictator who is destroying Malaysia's good name. If you don't believe Australian, British, French and American media for the allegedly bias coverage of Malaysia, as Mahathir used to say, then read major Arab newspapers such as al-Ahram, Arab News, Saudi Gazette, etc.
He is seen in the Middle East as a devil / satan. You don't have to go far - read all the major newspapers in Asean countries then you will find how disgraceful Mahathir is to them. Are these Middle Eastern and Asean dailies envious of Malaysia's so called "success". I don't think so.
My fellow Malaysians, Mahathir, despite his good name and stature as a statesman, etc, is no longer the Mahathir we were once proud of. The many years he took to nurture and build his image (with the help of Satchi & Satchi, of course) had gone into the drain and he needs now another 15 years to repair it. Are we prepared to give him the opportunity again? From what he has done to Dato Seri Anwar, he has clearly descended to the level of clay (ie. our origin) and clearly shows he has acceded to the whispering of the evil satans (ie. Daim Zainudin, Megat Junid, Sanusi Junid, Dollah Badawi, Ghaffar Baba, Rahim Tambi Chik and Aziz Shamsudin). It is a great pity that Mahathir who had an excellent relationship with Anwar Ibrahim was prepared to destroy his good name simply to protect these evil satans. I am sure he regrets for the whole of his life!
Now because of that stupid and fateful decision (to sack Anwar), he has spread evil, sin, transgression, corruption and confusion in the society. His actions shows his insolence towards God, fleeing from the country's constitution and speaking of Malaysians in a disrespectful tone (as if we are all idiots).
We should not allow this stubborn man (he is known for this!) to remain in his error and we must be brave to put a halt to the total transgression and confusion he has created. Don't allow him to continue leading the country as he will leave legacies (political, economic, social, etc) that contain elements which are destructive to the country.
I am not exaggerating but merely stating a fact that Mahathir is a fraud who disregards truth and rule of law, who persists in acts of wrong doing, who believes in his limitless ingenuity but in actuality is so deficient in intellect and has a defective brain. He has cut-off from society and does not understand the profound awareness among the people that he is no longer wanted and his days are numbered. He mistakenly believes people still want him. It is a mistake, it is a tragedy to Malaysians. Indeed Mahathir is coming to the end of the road. In the eyes of the world he is now totally discredited. His position is like a wallpaper which sticks to a cracked wall. He will fall down soon. He may have done many things for Malaysia and has rubbed shoulders with Thatcher, Lee Kuan Yew, Suharto and seen off the lot of them. And now his time may at last be up. In fact, the chances are that Mahathir is finished.
He is not able to sought out the economic mess the country is facing. His skills as an economist are zero. He is a figure of the past. That's why he cannot accept Anwar because Anwar is a new Malaysian who is rejecting the burden of the past. History will not be generous with him. Hidup Reformasi!
Reformasi! Reformasi! Reformasi!
