Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim irrelevant? Really?

This is an email that has been making its round and it has been forwarded to me and I thought worthwhile to post it here for everyone’s benefit. All I know is there’s a welcoming Wind of Change blowing through our land!

– start –

– end –

Received from friend who stays abroad…!! By, A Political NeutralThe most famous term used by BN leaders is Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim (DSAI) is irrelevant, is this true? I was beginning to believe that maybe their claim was justified as it was being mentioned repeatedly over the months until I had personally attended his Ceramah at Buntong and Dewan Tow Bee Keong in Ipoh on the 11-1-08 between 7.30-11pm.There were banners displayed at several places around Ipoh for a Chinese New Year celebration with DSAI at Dewan Tow Bee Keong, so a crowd of 5,000, mostly Chinese did not take me by surprise. However, a crowd of more than 5,000 people at Buntong with a days notice and organizing it at a small terrace house, with no stage was an eye opener. So why was there such a large crowd ? Why an “irrelevant” person able to create such hype.The mere presence of Anwar Ibrahim created euphoria, his aura was immense, I was 50 meters away from like walking into a temple with strong vibration where you feel the sense of calmness and serenity. Anwar is definitely relevant!!!

He did not scream all the way as most politician do, but there was pin drop silence when his tone of voice was soft, I mean pin drop silence amongst the Buntong crowd! He kept the crowd cheering and laughing all the way throughout his hour long speech. He was instantly a big hit amongst the Buntong crowd. He received the same ovation at Dewan Tow Bee Keong as well.So what were the issues addressed and why should we vote for any opposition party whether its keADILan, DAP or PAS.
 1. Rising price of oil and all essential goods.
He insists that petrol price would be reduced immediately once he is PM.
In contrast, Najib claims that the country would become bankrupt if this was done, so how would it be possible. Simple, presently PETRONAS annual profit after tax is RM80 billion, take RM 10 billion from it and further subsidize the petrol would not have any material effect on the government revenue as we are an oil exporting nation. During his 8 year tenure as Finance Ministerand Deputy Prime Minister, oil was kept at RM1.10/litre when profits from Petronas was between RM 25 – 30 billion annually. Remember that most robust projects were also undertaken during this period but we never went buzz.After his sacking in September 1998, petrol rose in October 1998 and tol rates rose in November 1998.

2. Free education from primary to tertiary education.
Hah ! Bolehkah ini ? Mana boleh ? Well, another RM 10 billion would do from Petronas profit, simple as that. When you can manage with RM 30 billion, why can’t you manage with RM 60 billion from Petronas. He says that this is God given gift to the people, at least half of which should go back to the people in some way or rather. What is the point of the nation being rich yet the rakyat being poor?

3. Racial tension like never before
Why so much misconception between races, we are all Malaysians. The annual government revenue is RM 200 billion, to a population of 27 million is one the highest in the world, so there is no need to quarrel, we all can share the cake. So where is the problem, the bulk of the cake is being gobbled by few BN component leaders and leaving the poor rakyat to feel that we are being robbed by the other race. Morgan Stanley reported than corruption has cost the nation RM 100 billion since 2004. So please, let’s unite and fight the true enemy, please pass this important message to as many as possible, because as election draws closer, and if BN is on the verge of defeat, they may just stir this sentiment as they have done in the past while we fall victims.

4. Brain drain and lack of opportunities
Many non-Bumis are with the perception that they are being deprived of tertiary education even after obtaining the best possible results, true. But who are the true beneficiaries, remember that only 30% of the Bumis are either professionals or some how benefited from the growth of the country or somehow is a crony to some prominent individuals. They are the ones able to give their children quality secondary education and they are the ones who have most benefited from government scholarships and tertiary education.
The remaining 70% of Bumis are still neglected
and aren’t given much opportunity just as the non-Bumis.
He promised to help the most deserving Bumis (70% who are still poor) and the most deserving non-Bumis from tertiary education to government job employm

5. Chinese and Tamil schools
He vowed to make all schools as fully government aided schools if keADILan was to come to power. I wouldn’t want to repeat the financial means as I’ve already done so.

6. Fear of PAS or DAP
This is BN propaganda, PAS is contesting in 60 seats and DAP even less, neither party on its own can come to power. Fear is put amongst non-Muslims that PAS are too radical, likewise DAP are a communist organization.
Neither is true, 75% of non-muslims vote in Kelantan in the 2004 election went to PAS, there must be something right with PAS and something not so right with BN for people resorting to choose PAS. Lim Guan Eng served 2 years in jail protecting an underaged Malay girl who was having an affair with a top UMNO leader. Are they communist?
Anyway, keADILan would have to win the most number of seats with PAS and DAP making up the numbers for them to govern. So, please do not fear PAS or DAP. Either they would be ideal oppositions in parliament or a coalition party in a keADILan led multiracial government.
Likewise many other issues were addressed.

Now the big question is, can Anwar be trusted?
Well, how much worst can he be compared to the current leaders.
Is there any credible leader in UMNO who can turn this country around?
Petrol price is to increase again in April ’08
. All essential goods are going to go higher.

Malaysia‘s Foreign Direct Investment (pelaburan asing) has dwindled from top spot in the 90’s to 6th in 2007 after Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand and Philippines in South East Asia.

Anwar is a leading financial adviser to many large institution and businessman for investment opportunities in South East Asia.
University ranking has dropped below 200 wherelse Univeristy of Singapore are No.3 in Asia and Indian Institute of Tech. are top 10 in the world

Anwar is currently serves as a professor in Harvard and Oxford Universities
, needless for me to say about the reputation of these two top class universities.
With all these in mind, why can’t we give him 5 years to prove himself.
We have prejudged him as untrustworthy, well, he was in UMNO, to be a leader in UMNO, you must be a fanatic Malay, likewise MCA and MIC because they are race based parties.

Now he has formed a multiracial party to fight for all regardless of race and religion but promised to protect the Malay rights as stipulated in the constitution.


p/s: please forward this e-mail to as many and pass this word around to

whoever you see for a better future for ALL Malaysians.

    yB Wee, The seditious banner that was highlighted in your March 1, 2008 entry was nowhere to be seen when I passed by the site this morning; perhaps those MCA goons realised that the the half-truths, full-lies propaganda banner thingy has backfired!!Q:What’s next then? A:Start a Chair-Throwing campaignyB Wee, we’re all solidly behind you for Parliament.

    I don’t think additional/current fuel subsidies is the way to go as in the case of Venezuela. However I will still support PKR.”Some economists call the subsidy “Hood Robin,” because it steals from the poor and gives to the rich by favoring relatively wealthy car owners above the poor who rely on public transport.”http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/bizfocus/archives/2008/01/20/2003398085

    yb Wee,malaysia-today.net announced that RPK and Haris Ibrahim will be at DAP ceramah tonite. Any chance of inviting them to assist in your campaign? I’m sure they could also unleash killer blows to the chair-throwing MCA goon.”Wangsa Maju dengan Wee demi rakyat dan negara”

    Sdr Wee Please tell all Malaysians that the nation need to move forward. Malaysians want change for the better. Malay, Chinese, India and others have been cheated by BN for too long – 50 years. It is high time that we must give change a chance. Let it not be said that we didn’t try.What has BN done for us in the past 50 years. Nothing. We only get lies, corruption and nepotism. Even the judiciary is corrupted to the core. Where a lawyer can write judgment for a judge. Lingam deliver luxury things to judges’ house. Under the circumstnaces, is BN still relevant? NO,NO,NO! Vote for Barisan Rakyat for a clean and independent judiciary, which has the interest of the country as its supreme objective. Vote PKR. Vote for Wee for change and to defend people rights.

    I will never ever trust Anwar no matter how you try to convince me that he can be trusted. BUT then again, can we trust Abdullah Sleepy-Head Badawi or any of his cabinet ministers, MB, CM ? Abdullah is a proven liar and a bad one as well. Can we trust a C4 PM? Just think of how Samy lies to his own community. Ong Ka Ting and Chan Kong Choi have cheated and sold out the chinese all these years. Can anyone convince me that Anwar is more dangerous than all the above betrayers of the RAKYAT

    To toyolbuster …I am not totally sure of your point.But you are entitled to your views as everybody else here as long as we are civil about them and not be seditious.People, as you know, are as varied as the shades of green we see in our gardens and forests. They may appear to be the same but there are differentiating subtleties when examined closely.We also have our own pet peeves. The important thing is to recognise truth as truth is and to rightly know when it has deviated, too. Closed minds can both be limiting and damaging.Thank you for visiting.

    In the event KEADILAN and the Barisan Rakyat/Barisan Alternatif won in GE12, you, Mr. Wee, is the ideal candidate to take over the Attorney General’s portfolio in a KeaADILan-helmed democracy in this erstwhile forsaken Bolehland country.The day the BN-dominated government is toppled is the day true freedom and democracy prevails in this beloved land of mine. Keep up the good work, Mr Wee. We are all for you in Wangsa Maju.MALAYSIA – TOGETHER AS ONE WE SHALL PREVAIL. WE SHALL FIGHT CORRUPTION, NEPOTISM AND CRONYISM!

    Mr. Wee,The SPR has finally showed their true colors by “finally declaring” that unwashable ink can’t be used because it contradicts with the constitution…..RM200K gone.well, ain’t that bad. Consider how many billions has the BN robbed us.Let this 200k be the last 200k robbed from the people’s wallets.Mr. Wee, please address the constituents in your next ceramah abut this issue, and ask them, DO THEY WANT TO GET CHEATED AGAIN AND AGAIN BY BN?–Isaac

    I wish to ask readers the extend of cronyism Anwar has. From where he gets his financial standing? Just find out from the neighbourhood of SS7 if he is a man of integrity. His promises for the election are just in the wilds and so are his secrets. He is brilliant in rallying support but in actual he is like ular menyusur akar.Can a good talker be trusted as his words?

    comparing to the big money dragons that BN rears in the back yard (PLUS, ahem, ahemmmm!!!) , Anwar’s so called crony isn’t a crony after all.It’s through donations, genius.

  14. wee2wee

    It is a whole clod of crap to describe DSAI with “aura” by standing in his presence.He is just a human with a big vengence in his heart against those who have wronged him.He almost failed me in getting a housing loan when he was the Finance Minister. So called “Finance Adviser”. That I remember about him.Just stop this painting “holier than thou” image of him.

    I am very sad to read that according to some readers the country has little to contribute to our well being. Is our living conditions like in Kenya and other 3rd world countries? In actual fact some of you have more than one car and beautiful house above you. All these brought about the conducive conditions in the country for many years. I admit there’re still shortcomings but we are progessing since pre independence days. Anyhow, if PKR is capable enough to lower the price of goods and petrol soon, it means its leader/mentor has the quality beyond my belief
