Constitutional law expert Prof Aziz Bari today gave his statement to the police over a death threat and bullet mailed to him yesterday following a recent controversy involving his remarks over the Sultan of Selangor.
The controversial International Islamic University (UIA) professor told The Malaysian Insider he received an envelope containing a bullet and a note saying “Jangan kurang ajar dengan Sultan, maut nanti (don’t be rude with the Sultan, you may die later)” at his Bandar Baru Selayang home around 11.45am yesterday.

Zul Noordin penyambung hayat atau mempercepatkan kepupusan Perkasa?




P
embelot parti PKR, Zulkifli Noordin yang baru-baru ini diangkat sebagai orang penting di dalam pertubuhan pro-Melayu, Perkasa boleh disimpulkan sebagai bersesuaian. Seperti pepatah yang mengatakan, “anda ialah apa yang anda makan atau sesebuah pertubuhan itu hanya sebagus pekerjanya sahaja.”
Yang sebenarnya, tidak ramai rakyat Malaysia yang mengenali Perkasa, pertubuhan sayap kanan orang Melayu yang riuh-rendah dan kasar menghamburkan kemarahan terhadap kaum lain.  Samalah dengan Ahli Parlimen Kulim Bandar Baharu, Zulkifli Nordin itu. Sebab itu mereka sangat bersesuaian. Umpamanya, Perkasa boleh menelan Zulkifli tanpa keracunan makanan dan, Zul juga boleh membantu menggilap imej ekstrem dan perkauman Perkasa.

“Saya menerima sampil surat dengan sebutir peluru, dengan nota berkata ‘jangan kurang ajar dengan Sultan, maut nanti’,” kata Aziz kepada The Malaysian Insider.

M
dm Chen, 42, has a master's degree in economics and had married the son of a rich man at the age of 20.
Her father-in-law was the boss of a listed company in Malaysia, but instead of helping with the family business, her husband indulged in gambling and incurred debts of more than $1 million.

Sex psychologist: Empowering women in the bedroom




Z
oya Amirin believes that empowering women in patriarchal Indonesia may start from the bedroom.
Dubbed as the country's first certified female sex therapist, Zoya highlights the importance of women showing initiative in their sex lives as initial step to their own empowerment.
"They [women] must feel comfortable with their own sexuality, so that they can take charge. We are not talking about them being feminists but how they can be happy in their womanhood," the 36-year old said in an interview with The Jakarta Post recently.
A lecturer at the University of Indonesia, Zoya also knows that this is easier said than done.

Ahmadiyya decry JAIS attacks




P
ETALING JAYA: Local Ahmaddiyya Muslims are tired of being discriminated against, and want to challenge the state to a discussion on their stand as believers.
The Selangor Islamic Religious Department (JAIS), according to Ahmadiyya spokesman Maulana Ainul Yaqeen Sahib, has worked hard to declare his community as apostates.
“JAIS has been attacking the Ahmadiyya through the media. Everything gets thrown against us. It’s not fair. They say we are not Muslims, and (at the same time) they don’t give us a chance to say anything (in return),” he told FMT.

Perkasa spewing new venom




P
erkasa, the ultra right wing movement, desecrated Deepavali day by spewing more than its usual venom at its second annual general assembly. Obviously, Perkasa activists had no Hindu friends to visit on that auspicious day.
It is a wonder that these toxic Perkasa people are not locked up on national security grounds and the keys thrown away for good. That is the only way to prevent them from infecting all good people in the country with their poisonous brew of half-baked theories, lies, politicised history, pseudo-science and racism.
Birds of a feather flocked together as Perkasa chief Ibrahim Ali was joined by former IGP Abdul Rahim Noor and an assortment of various unsavoury characters with dubious pasts. These included Shazryl Eskay Abdullah, a masseur associated with the production of a pornographic tape, Kulim-Bandar Bharu MP Zulkifli Noordin, who got the boot from PKR for making racist outbursts too frequently, and former information minister Zainuddin Maidin, an Indian Muslim who was sacked as Utusan Malaysia editor.

Membazir: Upah orang asing naik imej Najib




K
UALA LUMPUR - Tindakan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak mengupah orang asing untuk menaikkan imejnya adalah membazir, sia-sia dan tidak adil.
"Jika benar Najib mengupah Alastair Campbell yang pernah menjadi ketua komunikasi bekas Perdana Menteri Britain, Tony Blair untuk menaikkan
imejnya dan wang rakyat digunakan untuk tujuan itu, ia bukan sahaja membazir dan sia-sia, malah amat tidak adil menggunakan wang rakyat
untuk kepentingan peribadi dan partinya," kata Naib Presiden PAS, Salahuddin Ayub.

Give up illegal refugees deal with Australia, lawyers group tell Najib




L
awyers for Liberty once again calls upon Prime Minister Najib Razak not to dilute the protection that international law accords to refugees.
With the purported agenda of busting people smuggling and combating human trafficking, the Malaysian Government, has reiterated its determination to revive the scandalous refugee swap deal despite the Australian High Court's finding which declared the deal illegal.
Given the findings of the Australian High Court which found that the Minister in charge was unable to satisfy the Court that Malaysia had met three important criteria that would deem it safe for asylum seekers, the Malaysian Prime Minister's insistence that refugees are treated very well rings hollow.The safe third country criteria are that the country must

PRU-13: Apakah PM dan TPM masih bermimpi?




B
ila tarikh pilihanraya umum ke-13 akan diadakan masih menjadi teka-teki semua orang. Namun, ketidaktentuan dan dolak-dalik pentadbiran Perdana Menteri Najib Razak membuatkan masa berlalu begitu pantas. PRU-13 mesti diadakan sebelum April 2013, tetapi oleh kerana akan ada pilihanraya parti tahun hadapan, pilihanraya umum tergempar akan diadakan dalam tempoh enam bulan terdekat. Samada suka atau tidak, Najib dan timbalannya mula mendekati pengundi dengan cara mereka sendiri.

Will Michelle Yeoh make a difference to the MCA's chances in Perak




I
f for whatever reason Malaysian-born Hollywood star Michelle Yeoh were to dump the international fast lane for the local political scene, she will be joining BN and the MCA in particular.
"Anyone can join politics if he or she has the commitment to serve the public. But Michelle Yeoh will join MCA if she takes up politics. She is a die-hard BN supporter because her father Yeok Kian Geik was the MCA Perak chairman before. She even posed as the BN's model during the last election urging people to vote BN. I would doubt her credentials as she has never been impartial all this while," Taiping MP Nga Kor Ming toldMalaysia Chronicle.

Probable WWII submarine found



wreck found under water in a Papua New Guinea harbour likely was a Japanese midget submarine from World War II.
Australian and New Zealand warships found it while working in the area to clear WWII-era explosives on Thursday.
Simpson Harbor is in the town of Rabaul, which was a major Japanese military base on the northeast coast of the South Pacific nation.
New Zealand Navy Lt. Commander Matthew Ray told Australian Broadcasting Corp. radio the find was initially identified as "a 20-metre long solid, manmade object".
Closer inspection confirmed it was a submarine, he said.

In this photo released by Australian Department of Defence, the stern section of an uncharted submarine wreck is shown on the seabed off the coast of Rabaul, Papua New Guinea

As Rabaul was Japan's major base in the Southwest Pacific for most of the war, most of the submarines in the harbour had been Japanese.
"My best guess would be it's a Japanese midget submarine. It doesn't look big enough to be an ocean-going ... submarine," said former submariner Gary Oakley.
One- and two-man Japanese midget submarines were transported by ship or larger submarines and used covertly to infiltrate enemy targets including Pearl Harbor in Hawaii and Sydney Harbor.
Such a submarine could have been destroyed by an American air raid or naval bombardment or even scuttled by the Japanese toward the end of the war, said Oakley, also an Australian War Memorial curator.
He said it could also be the first Australian submarine lost in World War I, although that submarine, AE1, was thought to have sunk in another harbour some 20km away.
AE1 became the first Australian naval loss of the war when it sank on Sept. 15, 1914, with the loss of 35 lives.

No Human Rights please, we’re Malaysian




F
ormer prime minister Mahathir Mohamad, known for his decades of inhumane administration, has come out strongly against Human Rights in Malaysia. This was after Rahim Noor, the thuggish former policeman who beat up Anwar Ibrahim while he was handcuffed, equated the Human Rights movement with Communism.
Mahathir declared that he was against Human Rights because it would allow people of the same sex to marry. Clearly he is mixing it up with gay rights. But then, Mahathir always seems to have homosexuality on his mind, right from his graphic description of a homosexual act on national television in 1998. He also built the twin towers, an entirely unnecessary piece of real estate for a small nation like Malaysia, and a phallic symbol if there ever was one. It remains an unviable and loss-making entity, propped up by Petronas and clever accounting.

Vietnamese prostitutes getting 'too much' in Chinatown




A
reader of Shin Min Daily News, Mr Lin (46, sales person), told reporters about his recent experience at Chinatown.
He was with his friend at Chinatown when they were approached by hookers.
"That is not a red light district but more and more Vietnamese girls are soliciting for sex there. The authorities should do something about it!" said Mr Lin.
Mr Lin and his friend were smoking at the staircase outside the MRT station when a hooker approached him.

Altantuya tidak tenang sehingga selesai PRU-13 walaupun dibantah ayahnya




L
ebih daripada 4 tahun telah berlalu namun mahkamah di Malaysia masih melengah-lengahkan saman bernilai RM100 juta daripada ibu bapa Altantuya Shaariibuu, rakyat Mongolia yang dibunuh di Malaysia yang didakwa mempunyai hubungan dengan kes rasuah yang mengaitkan Perdana Menteri Najib Razak dan pembelian kapal selam Scorpene daripada syarikat Perancis DCN.
Bapanya Setev Shaariibuu telah menghantar satu lagi surat ke pihak mahkamah Malaysia, tetapi suratnya itu akan mendapat nasib yang sama dengan peringatan-peringatan sebelumnya – disimpan dan didiamkan! Walau bagaimanapun, kali ini, Setev dan isterinya Altantsetseg Sanjaa telah mengambil satu lagi langkah tambahan iaitu merayu kepada pembuat undang-undang Malaysia untuk pengadilan.

Dr M tunjuk belang: Malaysia hanya perlu hak asasi terhad




S
eperti yang dijangka, mantan Perdana Menteri Mahathir Mohamad telah menyokong komentar yang mengkritik hak asasi manusia daripada bekas ketua polis yang telah membantunya berjaya mendakwa dan memenjarakan Ketua Pembangkang Anwar Ibrahim dengan tuduhan liwat palsu.
Abdul Rahim Mohd Noor, bekas Ketua Polis Negara yang telah mengaku membelasah Anwar di dalam lokap polis dan melebamkan matanya sewaktu penahanannya pada tahun 1998, sehari yang lepas telah mengkritik seruan pembelaan hak asasi manusia di Malaysia adalah sama dengan komunis. Kata-katanya dilihat merendah-rendahkan perubahan dan pergerakan politik baru yang diseru oleh gabungan pembangkang Pakatan Rakyat.

Man dies on bus






H
ER brother had died.
But the words didn't register in her mind when she was first told the shocking news.
Housewife Ho Siew Eng, 73, first thought he had gone on a holiday.
But her younger brother Ho Soo Kim, 62, had actually collapsed suddenly and died on a bus on Monday evening.
Madam Ho found out what happened when one of her younger brothers called that night.
She said: "My brother told me Soo Kim had 'gone'. I asked him, 'Gone where?' He didn't answer at first, so I thought Soo Kim had gone for a walk, or for a holiday.

Pakatan vs BN: No room for reconciliation in Malaysia






O
ne fact is clear, there will be no room for reconciliation in Malaysia. In the event Pakatan Rakyat takes power in this election, the people will demand justice for the crimes that have been committed against them. At which point Pakatan had best not suggest forgiveness or reconciliation for the worst of the BN politicians or their cronies. Or for any of them.

Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim has said that he has forgiven the crimes committed against his person and against his long-suffering family. That is his prerogative.

Hutang negara turun zaman Anwar, naik era Najib






K
UALA LUMPUR - Hutang negara berkurang pada zaman Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim menjadi Menteri Kewangan, namun melonjak selepas Datuk Seri Najib Razak mengambil alih kementerian itu.
Sepanjang Anwar menjadi menteri kewangan dari tahun 1991 hingga 1998, beliau berjaya mengurangkan hutang negara dan menukar belanjawan kerajaan kepada lebihan pendapatan dalam masa dua tahun sahaja, lapor KeadilanDaily.
Belanjawan itu berterusan sehingga beliau dipecat secara tidak adil pada 1998 oleh pentadbiran Mahathir.

The couple were accused of leading a group specialising in producing and selling drugs, following the seizure of 2.8-ton of mephedrone from them.
Also arrested were six other suspects, mostly family members and relatives of the couple.

Ibrahim Ali embarrases himself: End of the road seen for Perkasa




T
he writing is on the wall for Perkasa, founded two years ago by political chameleon Ibrahim Ali. Chances are it won't last another two years.
An object of ridicule to the non-Malays and unable to influence his own community, Malaysia's most famous rabble-rouser is looking at fast-shrinking membership in the ultra Malay rights movement that took shape after a series of church torchings in 2010. And whether he officially closes shop or not, Perkasa looks doomed to irrelevance, hit by Ibrahim's own lack of ideas, dynamism and vision for his cause.
