Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia fails
Human Rights standard test
He is usually not neutral because he knows which side of the bread is buttered. Pandikar Amin (WRONGLY, according to Human Rights standard) told Fong that he did not think that the term was insulting as pendatang haram referred to illegals.
Earlier, Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing’s (BN – Bintulu) spoke on the problems of illegal immigrants when Datuk Wilfred Bumburing (BN – Tuaran) stood up to complain of crimes committed by pendatang haram (illegals).

Opposition should recruit Zaid for the
next generation democratic PM
after future PM DSAI
GEORGE TOWN: The institutions of Government in the country are no longer neutral and this is causing democracy to crumble, said former de facto Law Minister Datuk Zaid Ibrahim.
“In a democracy, the institutions of government must be neutral and professionally run. You can’t have the police taking sides or the MACC (Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission) making statements supporting one side or the other.

Ignorant Americans are paying for Israel’s war crimes
in-spite of gloomy economy
Maybe, just maybe, its the policies that are all screwed up. And that means looking at the top. A nation raised on the fear of the holocaust, all ready to fight. Winning votes by being victorious in war crimes.
U.S. seeks ship to move arms to Israel
The U.S. is seeking to hire a merchant ship to deliver hundreds of tons of arms to Israel from Greece later this month, tender documents seen by Reuters show.
The U.S. Navy’s Military Sealift Command (MSC) said the ship was to carry 325 standard 20-foot containers of what is listed as “ammunition” on two separate journeys from the Greek port of Astakos to the Israeli port of Ashdod in mid-to-late January.
A “hazardous material” designation on the manifest mentions explosive substances and detonators, but no other details were given.
“Shipping 3,000-odd tons of ammunition in one go is a lot,” one broker said, on condition of anonymity.
Americans, YOU are paying for all this stuff, at a time when 11 million of you have lost your jobs, and one out of every ten of you will lose your homes this year.

Myanmar Muslims prohibited from worshipping in residential flats
Chiang Mai (Mizzima) – Aping a recent diktat against the country’s Christian community, authorities have summoned and warned leaders of Burma’s Muslim community not to worship in residential flats.
Rangoon’s Kyauktada Township Peace and Development Council office, as they did with Christian pastors from the city, summoned Islamic leaders on the 5th of this month and warned them to halt all religious services and the reading of the Quran in residential flats.

They called themselves the people’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD), but their aims were hardly democratic. During their 192-day protest campaign, the PAD paralyzed Thailand, blockading the capital’s two airports for eight days and besieging the Prime Minister’s office complex for months.

The different China-related democracy issues need to be integrated through a broad overarching theme and coordinated from closer in Asia. This was the latent international strategy that emerged from the 3rd International Conference on Global Support for Democratisation in China and Asia (GSDCA) which was held on Aug 4 and 5, 2008 in Japan.
The GSDCA brought together some 100 China pro-democracy activists from across the world, literally on the eve of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, for a two day meeting in Tokyo. The conference, the third in a series, hosted participants from Asian autocratic nations, as well as dignitaries, experts, and scholars from all over the globe, including Europe, North America, and Asia-Pacific.
Internationalised China-related democracy issues
Presently internationalised China-related democracy issues are a range of disparate elements that fall into three broad categories. The first address issues of territorial sovereignty, autonomy and self-determination. They include chief-executive elections in Hong Kong, autonomy for Inner Mongolia and Xinjiang (Eastern Turkestan), self-government for Tibet and independence for Taiwan.
