Familiarity Breeds Contempt

Hantu Laut

At long last, real cracks are beginning to show in PKR.

PKR's Kulim Bandar Bahru MP Zulkifli Nordin accused Anwar Ibrahim of bias and taking sides.Zulkifli, after being asked by Anwar to withdraw the police report he made against PAS MP Khalid Samad stood his ground and maintains he would not withdraw the report.Short of telling Anwar to go to hell.

Anwar tried political horse-trading with him by promising that no action would be taken against him.Much to Anwar's disdain the obstinate bull stood by his principle.Zaid Ibrahim has called for him to be sacked from the party.This ex UMNO lad truly believes in what he knows best, totalitarian method to deal with differing opinions.

Poor chap has become a real pain to PKR's bosses.He seems to have very little respect for them and are prepared to face the sacrificial fire.

In Pahang, another ill wind is blowing in Anwar's face.PKR MP for Indera Mahkota Azan Ismail resigned his post as deputy chairman of PKR Pahang quoting disappointment over leadership and administration of the state PKR.

Over the past decade many of Anwar's close political aides and friends have left him when they found out true character of the man.The Malays in PKR are beginning to see where Anwar is taking them.

How long would Zaid Ibrahim stay in PKR? It all depends on the outcome of Anwar's sodomy case.If Anwar goes to jail a leadership tussle would ensue more likely between Zaid Ibrahim and the overly ambitious Azmin Ali.

Lim Kit Siang has assured that Pakatan Rakyat can go without Anwar.

While PKR is slowly breaking up DAP is confident of getting full backing of the non-Malay voters particularly the Chinese.

Sometimes, marriages are made in hell and Pakatan Rakyat might just be that.

Bro,for better or for worse YB Zul is the face of Islam in the so called multi racial multi religious PKR platform owned by Anwar and his family and close friends.

Anwar desperately needs YB Zul to show the Islam side of PKR to garner votes from the Muslim Malays and that is the sad truth.

Zaid being a parachute politician from UMNO has no real grassroots support among PKR, he can bark about sacking YB Zul but he is barking up the wrong tree.

PKR members and leaders are leaving the party like birds fleeing from a impending cataclysmic disaster. Just wondered if PKR can field enough good quality candidates by the time of the next GE.

Hahahaha! You are at it again bro!

3 points:-

1/ Yes, familiarity does breed contempt. The BN (i.e. UMNO) has been in power for more that 50 years now. Malaysians are quite afmiliar with them by now.

2/ Everytime there is a problem in PR you blame DSAI. That's fair. The "buck" stops at the boss. BUT every time there is a problem in UMNO or BN you blame everyone & his donkey EXCEPT Mr. Powerless PM himself! Now, isn't that using two different standards for your judgements (hahaha...just came to me...that's exactly how our Court of Appeals bases it's judgements. I.e. one set of rules for BN & another for everyone else!)?

3/ That Zul character (ex-UMNO) is a Racist & Bigot & he should go back to the party that promotes Racism, Bigotary & Corruption (no prizes for guessing who!)

4/ Of course DSAI will ned up in jail. That's where UMNO wants him. I guess if that's what it's going to take to overthrow the evil UMNo regime, why not? DSAI will have to languish in jail until the PR takes over bah (part of the price he has to pay for being once in UMNO!).

Good one bro...I never tire of reading your articles (even though I may disagree on some minor points!).

eddy said...

Bro SM, YB Zul is from PAS before he joined PKR I think, definitely not from UMNO. He,he..

SM said...

Bro Eddy,

I beg to differ...he's ex-UMNO. I'm sure of that. Bro HL? Can you can confirm either way?
If I'm wrong, my sincerest apologies.

He was never in UMNO or PAS.He has always been with Anwar.He was arrested under the ISA in Sept 1998 for the reformasi movement with Anwar Ibrahim. He is well-educated and is a qualified lawyer in both secular and sharia law.

Many of us think he is a religious bigot but it is not what it seems.The man is not stupid,I think he knows his stuff.

Bro HL/Bro SM, an extract from an interview between the nutgraph and YB Zul about November 2008:

NutG:In the Mingguan Malaysia interview, at one point you said you are Muslim first and foremost, everything else is second. Why then didn't you make the choice to join PAS? Why join PKR? When did you join PKR?

YB Zul:In fact, I am a PAS member.

NutG:Oh, you are a PAS member?

YB Zul:I am a PAS member. When the (general) election was called, I was asked to take the Kulim-Bandar Baru seat, which is a PKR seat. So when you stand as PKR in Kulim-Bandar Baru, naturally you have to be with them, with [Parti Keadilan Rakyat]. I have no qualms about [stating] that.

NutG: So you are a PAS member who stood under a PKR ticket?

YB Zul: During the elections. But I am now a PKR member. By virtue of standing as a candidate under the PKR banner, I became, by the consensus of PAS and PKR, a member of PKR.

NutG: Police and the media outside the Bar Council building in Kuala
Lumpur on 9 Aug 2008, the day of the forum on conversion (Pic by
Seira Sacha)To clarify, you have active membership in both PAS and PKR?

YBZul: No, now PKR.

NutG: So you were with PAS before. How long were you with PAS?

YB Zul: For quite some time.

NutG:Since 1998-99?

YB Zul: No, much earlier.

NutG: So you were a member of PAS all this while; then you decided to run in Kulim-Bandar Baru under PKR. And since your victory on 8 March, you joined PKR.

YB Zul: In fact, when I was offered the seat, when I was asked to stand in Kulim-Bandar Baru as a PKR member, we had a discussion, and at that time we decided I should join PKR.

for the whole interview please see:

Unless the nutgraph is makng up the story I believe YB Zul started as a PAS member and ended up a PKR member. For sure he is an ardent Anwar supporter, and definitely I am sure Anwar needs YB Zul more than YB Zul needs Anwar.

mca, mic and umno are marriage made in heaven. they work hand in glove to plunder teh country, no?

how great is the trinity, aint it hantu.

sorry, i am wrong, they are angels and absolutely corrupt free.

Hantu Laut said...

He must have been a rather quiet ordinary member of PAS beacuse I couldn't find any article on his past political affiliation.

SM said...


Then I was wrong & so my apologies.
Now to what you said...i.e. he knows his stuff...I would say "looking at what's been happening" yes, I agree...he's probably waiting to join UMNO once he is kicked out of PKR! Sow some discord (i.e. go against what the PKR & PAS is saying on the issue) in PKR & ensure that the public notices it.
Finally, no one who supports banning the Non-Muslims from using the word "Allah" has shown that the Quran or Hadith supports this view!

eddy said...

1. Ya Bro, he was a very quiet PAS member known more as an ardent Anwar supporter then his political affiliations. In fact his blog biodata or wiki does not tell his political background at all. He is however a man with very strong conviction about his religion. He knows very well what he is doing and what he wants to do.He is certainly no bigot as some who disagrees with him like to label him.

2. Anon 11.58pm, UMNO, MCA and MIC are not the only parties in Barisan Nasional, as of August 2009, Barisan Nasional's member parties are:

United Malays National Organization (UMNO)

Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA)

Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC)

Parti Gerakan Rakyat Malaysia

People's Progressive Party (PPP)

Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB)

Sarawak United People's Party

Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS)

Liberal Democratic Party (LDP)

Parti Bersatu Rakyat Sabah(PBRS)

United Pasokmomogun Kadazandusun Murut Organisation (UPKO)

Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP)

Sarawak People's Party (PRS)

There are about 13 parties making up BN, definitely not a trinity lah.

SM said...


Yup, looks like Bro eddy is right. Sorry I was completely wrong on this Zul.
Zul was a member of PAS. However, even the late PAS President Ustaz Fadzil did not trust him (evidently he was even more "Islamic" than PAS!).
No wonder he joined the PKR & now DSAI is reaping the benefits of having an Extremist in the party. No DSAI does not need Zul. Sack him & let him join UMNO (I'm sure UMNO will take him in with open a Jihadic Hero!).

eddy said...

Bro SM, no problem that is the wonders of blogging/commenting no one has the monopoly on truth and we always agree to disagree in a civilised manner.

If you have time to read YB Zulkifli Nordin's blog you will find that he hates UMNO probably more than YB Lim Kit Siang hates UMNO.

No, I do not think he will join UMNO, he probably become independent or rejoin PAS OR this is just a drama concocted by Anwar Ibrahim to divert attention from the implosion of PKR now going on. Afterall YB Zul is a true blue Anwarista the one with super immunity in PKR. Yes sirrree in PKR a party of equals, there are some who are more equal than others. Zaid Ibrahim found out about the real Anwar about two days ago.
