Youtube Video Warning For Namewee (Negarakuku)

August 30, 07

UPDATE: for Namewee’s new rap F*CK RACISM IN MALAYSIA / NAH! , see Namewee’s Video Blasting Racism = Racism?.


Yep, if the video and audio is real, Malaysia now officially has its own brand of submit-tape-to-Al-Jazeera holy warriors.

Watch the very short, but still disturbia-ing Warning For Namewee on Youtube.

A disclaimer though: As a skeptical investigator, I note that there are no visual clues to determine if the video is genuine, or simply a voice-over dub of an existing video.

The entire video could be nothing more than a hoax, a joke, a show of macho bravado, or an agent provocateur style fake to stir up contention within the nation.

Cons (tricking people) + Piracy (dubbing over other people’s jihadi video) = Conspiracy!

Nevertheless, that such sentiments exist (or exist to be parodied) is something that ought to worry all law-abiding Malaysians. When groups or individuals decide to take the law into their own hands, no one is safe from their personal interpretation of ‘justice’.

Heh… I might even be beheaded for this very posting! *Shudder*!

You have to wonder if these guys even actually bothered to find out what the song lyrics were or meant. There is in fact nothing that insults the religion of Islam. The closest that comes to it is a no-insulting-words remark about the cultural practise (not stated in any Muslim religious texts) of projecting the morning call to prayer (Azan) over loudspeakers.

You can see for yourself the lack of blasphemy by studying the Chinese and Malay lyrics of Negarakuku.

Or the Negarakuku music video with Chinese and English translation subtitles, for you international blogphiles. Please do note, part of the controversy is due to the fact that ‘kuku’ can also mean ‘male sex organ’.


And here are the ninjihadis (ninja-jihadis) for you:


“Let us poke, stab, tell boring stories to, and beat Namawee repeatedly!”

Well, that’s not really what they say. In fact, they never mention any violence. The knife and balaclavas coulda fooled me though.

What they actually say is this:

Bismi-llahi ar-rahmani ar-rahimi.” (In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)

“Kami ingin memberi amaran kepada Namawee. Sekiranya kamu kembali ke Tanah Melayu, kamu akan menerima hukuman di atas penghinaan kamu terhadap Islam.” (We want to give a warning to Namewee. If you return to Malaya [lit. Malay Land], you will receive punishment on your insult towards Islam)

Takbir! Allahu Akhbar!” (Allah is great) x3

Terrorists Getting Pwned Videos

August 29, 07

Courtesy of The Jawa Report which every now and then adds embedded videos on real footage of murderous terror-mongers getting slaughtered, posted with pwn in the title.

This is why young men join the military, d00d! Command & Conquer real life version, with real life murderers meeting their just end!

Taliban Launch Frontal Attack on Base

Tuesday August 7, 2007 3:46 PM


Associated Press Writer

GHAZNI, Afghanistan (AP)- A group of 75 Taliban militants tried to overrun a U.S.-led coalition base in southern Afghanistan on Tuesday, a rare frontal attack that left more than 20 militants dead, the coalition said in a statement.

The insurgents attacked Firebase Anaconda from three sides, using gunfire, grenades and 107 mm rockets, the coalition said. A joint Afghan-U.S. force repelled the attack with mortars, machine guns and air support.

“Almost two dozen insurgents were confirmed killed in the attack,” the statement said. Two girls and two Afghan soldiers were wounded during the fight in Uruzgan province, it said.

A firebase like Anaconda is usually a remote outpost staffed by as few as several dozen soldiers.

“The inability of the insurgent forces to inflict any severe damage on Firebase Anaconda, while being simultaneously decimated in the process, should be a clear indication of the ineffectiveness of their fighters,” said Army Capt. Vanessa R. Bowman, a coalition spokeswoman.

A direct attack on a U.S. or NATO base by insurgents on foot is relatively rare. More often insurgents fire rockets at bases and flee. Military officials say that Taliban fighters know they can’t match Western militaries in a heads-up battle, which leads the insurgents to more often rely on roadside and suicide bombs.


Get that. 75 attackers, 20 die (more than a quarter of the original number), no coalition forces killed. And as the videos show, even running around in the cover-less desert can get you killed.


Christians – If You’re Gay, Don’t Flaunt It. If You’re Straight, Don’t Taunt It.

August 27, 07

Christians – If You’re Gay, Don’t Flaunt It. If You’re Straight, Don’t Taunt It.

The above catchphrase is my summarization of the message of Romans 14, as applied to the situation between followers of Christ who believe that homosexuality is permitted, and followers of Christ who believe homosexuality is forbidden.

Now, don’t misconstrue me – My personal conviction is that the Bible quite clearly condemns homosexuality, and at the very least does not endorse it.

This is the stand that mainstreamers (‘fundamentalists’) hold to for the most part – that homosexuality is a wilful sin in God’s eyes, regardless of its source, strength or ‘naturalness’.

However, the convictions of others is that the Bible never explicitly forbids homosexuality. It is thus not a sin to practise it.

Thus it is the stand that Christians who do not accept homosexuality are being prejudiced and antagonostic towards Christians who do accept it.

You can take a look at the comments to Scott’s Unconditional Apology For Any Hurt Caused By Remarks on Homosexuality for a glimpse of both sides of the argument, even as they each believe that they are not in the wrong and being neutral in their points.

I would like to bring into this context the Bible passage I read this morning, with parts I found important bolded.


Romans 14 – The Weak and the Strong

 1Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters. 2One man’s faith allows him to eat everything, but another man, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. 3The man who eats everything must not look down on him who does not, and the man who does not eat everything must not condemn the man who does, for God has accepted him. 4Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.

 5One man considers one day more sacred than another; another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. 6He who regards one day as special, does so to the Lord. He who eats meat, eats to the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and he who abstains, does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God. 7For none of us lives to himself alone and none of us dies to himself alone. 8If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.

 9For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living. 10You, then, why do you judge your brother? Or why do you look down on your brother? For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat. 11It is written:
   ” ‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord,
   ‘every knee will bow before me;
      every tongue will confess to God.’ “[a] 12So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.

 13Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother’s way. 14As one who is in the Lord Jesus, I am fully convinced that no food[b] is unclean in itself. But if anyone regards something as unclean, then for him it is unclean. 15If your brother is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love. Do not by your eating destroy your brother for whom Christ died. 16Do not allow what you consider good to be spoken of as evil. 17For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, 18because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and approved by men.

 19Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification. 20Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All food is clean, but it is wrong for a man to eat anything that causes someone else to stumble. 21It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother to fall.

 22So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God. Blessed is the man who does not condemn himself by what he approves. 23But the man who has doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin.


Now, assuming that the matter of homosexuality is a purely intra-Christianity doctrinal issue (but without saying that it is), you can put either pro- or anti-homosexuality as the ‘one whose faith is weak’, the ‘stumbling block’ or ‘doing something that distresses your brother’.

Anti-homosexuality believers must take care in their zeal for upholding the truth (as they define it). They often condemn without trying to understand the difficulties and personal struggles that homosexuals go through.

How many long-term converts are won by comdemnation compared to care and gentle coaxing? The ‘taunting’ attitude of anti-homosexuality Christians, constantly pouring out antagonism, becomes a stumbling block for other believers.

Pro-homosexuality believers must be wary that their behaviour does not become a stumbling block to other believers. Although the pro-homosexuality side may accept homosexuality as God-given and not a sin, other believers do not have that same understanding.

As Paul said, even simple matters as eating (e.g. food offered to idols) and drinking (e.g. alcohol) should not be done in a way that distresses other believers, who may not have the same convictions. The ‘flaunting’ attitude of pro-homosexuality Christians, telling everyone it’s okay with God to be gay, becomes a stumbling block for other believers.

(On a related note, think this through: A new church opens by publicly proclaiming in the media its stand that homosexuality is permitted by Christianity. How does this reflect on all the other churches that do not support this stand? By implication, the teachings of all other churches must be wrong.

It might have been more prudent – and more humble – to start up the church quietly and spread word of its existence by word of mouth, particularly in Muslim-dominated and conservative Malaysia. As it is, the image of Christianity has been jeapordized among the nonbelievers and the mockers.)

To close, I am not saying that we should keep our opinions to ourselves and shut down all discussion, debate and – yes – even argument.

If you are firmly convinced and convicted that your understanding is correct, it is a Christian duty to convince others of your belief – in a gentle and respectful manner. But in the end, it is God Himself who will make the final judgement.

PS. Verses 5 to 8 are a nice refutation of the Ahnsahnghong church’s condemnation of all mainstreamers who do not earn salvation through celebrating Passover!

Johor Police Bust Drug and Car Theft Ring

August 26, 07

But it’s not all bad news in Johor this weekend. If you don’t know, it’s standard procedure to pin the blame on drug addicts for most non-group, non-methodically-organized robberies and other crimes.


From The Star 25 Aug 2007:

Drug ring and car theft gang busted

JOHOR BARU: Police have smashed a drug syndicate and car theft gang in the last few days. 

Acting on a tip-off, narcotics police raided a house in Taman Sentosa on Monday and arrested two men, both 23. They found 2,950 Ecstasy pills worth RM120,000 in a bag. 

Acting state police chief Senior Asst Comm I Datuk Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff said police believed the men were traffickers. 

“We are ascertaining whether the drugs are for the local or overseas market,” he said. 

The next day, police intercepted a parcel with 2.1kg of ganja at Taman Perindustrian Tampoi Jaya. 

“It was supposed to be couriered to a location in Sarawak,” SAC Mohd Mokhtar told a press conference. 

In another raid, CID police smashed a car theft gang and arrested two men, aged 31 and 33, and a 26-year-old Indonesian woman at a house in Taman Daya on Wednesday. 

A Mitsubishi Lancer and BMW car, believed to be stolen, were recovered along with MyKad, credit cards, nine Allen keys, key-making equipment and several mobile phones. 

SAC Mohd Mokhtar thanked the public for their co-operation and urged anyone with information to contact the police hotline at 07-221 2999. 

Police recorded 1,721 drug-related cases from February to July with the arrest of 1,006 people, he said.

Robbed at Petrol Station in Early a.m. AGAIN

August 26, 07

People never learn… Stopping at ANYWHERE, especially petrol stations, in the dead of night is asking for trouble. See 14 Arrested – Johor Gang Rapes Solved?Johor Criminals Chase and Ram Car, Rape Girl (and Another Gang Rape On Next Day) (second case) and JB: Woman Opens Car Door For Robber and Gets Carjacked, Gang-Raped.

And though the police should note this pattern, hey can’t be staking out every petrol station in Johor.

So Johor citizens beware… Top up on petrol in daylight, and hold your bladder until you reach Singapore where it’s SAFE.

For Singaporeans, well, tough luck. It’s Johor and they are insanely envious of your wealth. Stay in Singapore where people don’t get their faces cut off for being born.

The Johor criminals seem to be reappearing, which brings me to the pondering: Did they ever really stop their attacks, or was the media just quietly asked not to report Johor crimes for a certain length of time?


From The Star 25 Aug 2007:

Cops hunt for duo who robbed Singaporean

JOHOR BARU: Police have formed a task force to hunt down two men who slashed and robbed a Singaporean man. 

On Wednesday, a man armed with a parang injured the Singaporean at a petrol station and hijacked his car. 

The victim and his wife had stopped for petrol near the train station in the city central area at 4.20am. 

The wife went to buy some snacks while the husband went to pay for the petrol. 

He returned to the car and was about to start the engine when the robber approached him, slashed him in the face and drove off in the car. 

Acting state police chief Senior Asst Comm (I) Datuk Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff said Supt Gan Tian Kee would lead the team to hunt down the suspects. 

“We believe there are two suspects involved,” he told a press conference yesterday. 

Johor’s Terrible Road Conditions Kill Man

August 26, 07

Apart from violent crime, high prices and less-tasty-than-Ipoh/Penang/KL food, there is another thing that Johor is infamous for: Literally everyone who comes to Johor Bahru notices immediately the very poor state of the roads. They’re super bumpy, even the main roads!

Why is this so when road renovations seem to be carried out all the time? Are the materials used to repave the roads of inferior quality to that used elsewhere in the country? Are the people in charge extremely inept to use such poor materials year after year?

Or is it simply because of rampant corruption? Each time the road is fixed, a large lump of the money goes to some VIP or contractor’s pockets. There is then less money for the fixing of the roads, leading to the condition of the roads deteriorating much faster.

But that’s a GOOD thing for the corrupt! Because that means the road will need to be re-fixed sooner, meaning more money for their fat pockets!

Meanwhile, road users suffer discomfort, vehicles need more repairs… And someone dies from the effects of corruption.

They execute the heads responsible for non-lethal food and toys contamination in China. Should the same be carried out for the selfish, greedy neglect that led to an actual death in Johor?

Pothole that cost a life

Cheng Ming: Sustained head injuries upon landing

JOHOR: It cost a life to get a pothole patched up. 

Tan Cheng Ming, 20, was riding pillion on a motorcycle last Friday at 4am when the machine hit a pothole that was about as wide as a manhole and 5cm deep. 

The impact caused Cheng Ming to be thrown off the motorcycle, and he sustained head injuries upon landing. He was rushed to the Sultan Ismail Hospital but died there. 

His friend, Tam Tok Wei, 20, who was driving, escaped with minor injuries while the motorcycle was barely damaged except for some scratches and a bent front wheel. 

Cheng Ming’s father, Robin Tan, said the Johor Baru City Council (MBJB) patched up the pothole in Jalan Daya, Taman Daya, about two days after the accident. 

“When there is a loss of life, only then will they act. We have to bring this up to the authorities, because we don’t want others to lose their loved ones, too. 

“The street lights along that road are also not so bright as they are shaded by trees, so the rider might not have seen the pothole at night,” Tan told The Star

The 53-year-old taxi driver said that with the exception of highways, many roads in Johor Baru are riddled with potholes. 

Tan said they had started planning for Cheng Ming’s 21st birthday celebration next month when the accident occurred. 

“Twenty years of love, and just like that, because of other people’s mistake, my son paid with his life,” he said.

Kulai: Two Houses Broken Into, Robbed

August 24, 07

Note: With the increased police presence, the criminals are not gone or defeated… Just hiding and more careful. Just like before the police surge (hehe, Iraq invasion terminology), they still go for multiple houses in one shot if they can get away with it.



Neighbours in Kulai fall victim to robbers

JOHOR BARU: Robbers broke into two neighbouring houses in Bandar Putra Kulai, tied up the occupants and escaped with RM18,000 worth of loot. 

Acting state CID chief Asst Comm Che Yusof Che Ngah said the burglaries occurred 40 minutes apart on Wednesday. 

“They broke into the first house at 5.30pm, tied up the three occupants and escaped with RM13,000 worth of jewellery and mobile phones. 

“Then, 40 minutes later, they broke into the house next door, tied up the residents and escaped with RM5,000 worth of jewellery,” he said, adding that nobody was hurt during the incidents. 

ACP Che Yusof said one of the victims managed to untie himself and called police.  

Malaysia Backs Japan’s Initiative to Halve Greenhouse Gas Emissions

August 24, 07

Applying Murphy’s law to the situation, anthropogenic global warming will be conclusively disproven in the year… 2049. Read the news report for why this unobstrusive date.

Although if Murphy’s Law is taken to the extreme, we won’t have to think about the huge wastage of resources spent fighting a non-existant threat. Because the end of the world will happen around the last second of the countdown to Wawasan 2020.

But as long as Badawi keeps to his stated intention to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by stimulating, not stifling the economy, I have no great complaint to make.

But with the various claims of anthropogenic global warming being undermined, the move to reduce greenhouse gas emissions may be premature. See Global Warming Movement Falling Apart/, Many Peer Reviewed Scientific Studies Defy Global Warming ‘Consensus’, especially NASA Flacks for Global Warming and Skirts Scientific Ethics, and Ground Based Temperature Recording Stations: Stupid Locations For Measuring Global Warming.

Looks like global warming may be debunked much sooner than 2049. Sorry, Murphy.

Malaysia backs Japan’s climate change initiative

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia backed Japan’s new initiative to halve global emissions by 2050, the two countries said Friday after their leaders held talks on issues ranging from energy and trade cooperation to stability in North Korea. 

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe arrived Thursday on his first official visit to Malaysia as part of an Asian tour, which earlier took him to Indonesia and India. 

“This visit is a reaffirmation of the continued interest Japan has in enhancing economic and trade relations as well as investment,” Foreign Minister Syed Hamid Albar told reporters. 

A joint statement issued at the end of the talks between Abe and his Malaysian counterpart, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, said the two leaders “shared the need to cut global emissions by half from the current level by 2050 in order to stabilize atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases.” 

The emission reduction target is part of Abe’s “Cool Earth 50” initiative, which was announced in May and calls for an effective framework for addressing climate change beyond 2012.  

All countries would participate under the auspices of the United Nations. 

The statement said Abdullah “highly appreciated” the initiative.

Abe and Abdullah also agreed it is important to promote sustainable forest management in Malaysia, to counter greenhouse gas emissions and to conserve the planet’s biodiversity. 

Abdullah also urged more Japanese involvement in Malaysia’s southern and northern regions, which are being developed as new investment hubs.  

The two countries reached a free trade pact in July last year, resulting in Japanese investment in Malaysia increasing by about five times. 

The two leaders said a similar free trade pact between Japan and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations would “consolidate the prosperity of the region.” 

The two leaders called for cooperation in consolidating peace in the Philippines’ Mindanao region, which has been hit by an Islamic insurgency. 

A Malaysian-led international monitoring team is in Mindanao to safeguard a truce reached in 2003 between the Philippine government and the separatist Moro Islamic Liberation Front.  

Japan sent an aid expert to join the team in October. 

Abdullah and Abe also urged Pyongyang to “actively address” the issue of North Korea’s abductions of Japanese citizens, the joint statement said. – AP

Johor: Robbed of RM27,000 at 12.30 in the Afternoon

August 23, 07

These robbers were obviously waiting and watching the bank, ready to pounce on anyone who withdrew a large enough sum of money.

But seriously… Who carries 27k in cold, hard, non-password protected cash without any guards or even a few burly guy friends to keep watch? This isn’t an insurance scam setup, right? (Not to accuse…)

Why weren’t they spotted scouting the premises earlier?But it must be ntoed how daring they were – 12.30pm is the middle of the day, and they swooped in with parangs in broad daylight on a public road.

But with our newly reinforced and skill-level-upped Johor police, I have good hopes that these men will be brought to justice soon. That’s how much the situation seems to have improved since just a few months ago.


From The Star 23 Aug 2007:

Teen robbed after leaving bank

JOHOR BARU: A teenager was robbed of RM27,000 shortly after she withdrew the money from a bank in Kulai. 

The girl, 19, had entered the bank at 12.30pm and left in her car to pick up a friend nearby. 

While waiting in the car for her friend, three men armed with parangs came up and robbed her of the money, which was wrapped in a plastic bag in the glove compartment. 

The men, wearing caps and sunglasses, then escaped in a car. 

The victim was unharmed. 

Johor Baru (North) OCPD Asst Comm Ruslan Hassan said police have identified one of the robbers after viewing the bank’s closed-circuit television (CCTV) system. 

“I advise the public not to carry big amounts of cash, and to be careful,” he added. 

Those with information can call the police at 07-221 2999.
