First World or Third World? Look at Who Uses Violence During Protests

November 28, 07

How do you tell whether a country is First World / Developed or Third World / Developing?

One way is by looking at the relationship between citizen protestors and the government controlled forces.

In a Third World country, no matter how peaceful and orderly the protestors may be, the government can respond with sudden and shocking violence. The government brutally abuses the citizenry.

A few cases in point:

Bersih Rally

HINDRAF protests

Burmese anti-government protests

Post with a list of details and links of raging, screaming riots over perceived insults

Whereas is a First World country, no matter how violent and unruly the protestors may be, the government must respond with restraint and even self-sacrificial, self-defeating concessions. The citizenry brutally abuses the government.

A few cases in point:

Paris riots year after year (by Michelle Malkin)
2007: Flambée de violence: “Youths” now shooting at police; “This is war. There is no mercy. We want at least two policemen dead.”
2007: Is Paris burning again?
2006: Muslim mayhem in Marseille
2005: FRANCE: STILL BURNING

Western Amsterdam riots: After a youth is shot while attacking policewomen with a knife, civilians start rioting, burning dozens of cars including right in front of the police station. And the police do… NOTHING.

Gateway Pundit: Rioting Continues in Western Amsterdam
Klein Verzet: Suicide Attack in Amsterdam (long running updated commetary onunfolding events)

Olympia ‘anti-war’ protests
Sedition in Olympia: Anti-war mom drops baby human shield as anarchist kiddie shields watch
Seditious outrage in Olympia: Protesters block trucks, pour concrete on train tracks to stop military shipments
(Then again… Lolz!)

Other:
Anti-WTO protestors turn violent

Yeesh! The more I read, the more it feels like Iraq is the safest, most orderly place to be

This post is as much an indictment of the culture of violence in First World citizens as it is a criticism of Third World governments. Neither is an acceptable form of discourse in my book.

As judged by the who-uses-violence criteria, Malaysia is still firmly Third World mentality although surrounded by (occasional and rather concentrated only in a few places) First World standard infrastructure.

But despite my disgust at the despotic use of violence and the threat of violence against the citizenry by the government, I hope that Malaysia never develops into a First World nation where the citizens can run amok and cause even worse destruction.

Badawi Will Use ISA on Street Protestors If Needed

November 28, 07

So it’s finally coming to pass. Once again when popular dissent begins to well up, it is immediately and foribly quashed by use of the Internal Security Act.

My comments after the news excerpt.

From The Star 28 Nov 2007:

We will use Act against street protestors if we have to, says PM

PETALING JAYA: The Government will use the Internal Security Act (ISA) against street demonstrators who threaten national security and disrupt racial harmony if necessary, warned the Prime Minister. 

“If there are reasons for us to use it, we will use it,” Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi stressed. 

He was commenting on illegal street demonstrations held in Kuala Lumpur recently, including the latest by the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf), which claims to be fighting for the Hindus in Malaysia. 

Abdullah said using the law, which allows for detention without trial, would be preventive action to spare the country untoward incidents that could affect its peace and national security.  

“The ISA is there, if the situation warrants it, it will be used,” he told reporters at the RMAF air base in Subang here upon his return from Cairo yesterday. 

On calls by certain quarters for the ISA to be invoked against illegal street demonstrators, Abdullah said: “I am very surprised that people want the ISA. I thought they never wanted it.” 

The police, he said, would decide on the appropriate action to be taken. 

On rallies being planned for next month, he said he would leave it to the police to assess whether they would be a threat to national security. 

The annual Human Rights March organised by the Bar Council human rights committee is planned for next month. 

Abdullah also warned that action would be taken against those who download and distribute the memorandum signed by Hindraf legal adviser lawyer P. Uthayakumar addressed to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, which had been published in the Internet. The memorandum alleges persecution of Malaysian Indians.. 

He said the Government acknowledged freedom of the Internet but action could be taken against those who misuse it to spread allegations against the Government.  

The memorandum appeals to Britain to refer Malaysia to the World Court for crimes against ethnic Indians. It also claimed that “100 over Indians were slashed and killed by the Umno-controlled Malaysian government in the Kampung Medan mini genocide”. 

To this, Abdullah said that if Hindraf had indeed made such claim, Umno would act. 

“We want to know what proof they have (to support their claim). This is a serious accusation because they say it was Umno,” he said. 

On Hindraf’s action, he said: “They want to kiss the orang putih (British). They want the orang putih to take action because they are not satisfied with us”. 

Abdullah said Hindraf got support from the Indian community who thought they would each get RM1mil in compensation from its class-action suit filed against the British Government for bringing Indians into Malaya to work as labourers. 

The Prime Minister also said that everyone must realise that accusations against the Government were made because certain people thought that the election was around the corner, and this was the case in every elections. 

“But we hear what they say. Some of the demands are in the process of being addressed while some have been addressed but they are still harping on it,” he said. 

On Cameron Highlands MP S.K. Devamany’s comment in Parliament that the Hindraf demonstration showed there was frustration at the lower levels in the community, Abdullah said the Government must be fair to all. 

“If we focus on the interest of one group, others will be jealous, others will complain,” he said.

News article excerpts in bold italic. My analysis and comments follow each excerpt.

The Government will use the Internal Security Act (ISA) against street demonstrators who threaten national security and disrupt racial harmony if necessary, warned the Prime Minister.

‘Racial harmony’… UMNO’s particular definition of what constitutes ‘racial harmony’ would partly explain why the Government felt it could use the ISA on the HINDRAF protestors, who were probably exclusively Indian.

Whereas for the multi-racial Bersih Rally, they kept their hands off – instead using just chemical-laced water cannon, tear gas and shield bashes (as seen below and at link).

    BersihFRUShieldBash

But as I’ve said before, it’s classic double standards and flip-flop stance shifting: The historic anti-Malayan Union protests were also almost exclusively Malays protesting for Malay rights. Should they then have been discounted, ignored and abused by the British before being arrested without trial?

On calls by certain quarters for the ISA to be invoked against illegal street demonstrators, Abdullah said: “I am very surprised that people want the ISA. I thought they never wanted it.”

I am not at all surprised, except at the (faked?) naivete of our PM. Of course certain quarters are calling for the use of the ISA. If you were to name them, you would find all the supremacists of certain groups, government cronies and political powermongers – not ordinary everyday folk who are at the mercy of sudden midnight detention.

On rallies being planned for next month, he said he would leave it to the police to assess whether they would be a threat to national security.

A real threat to national security, or just a political threat to Barisan Nasional power security?

Abdullah also warned that action would be taken against those who download and distribute the memorandum signed by Hindraf legal adviser lawyer P. Uthayakumar addressed to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, which had been published in the Internet. The memorandum alleges persecution of Malaysian Indians.

Here is where the bloggers are being indirectly threatened for not succumbing to Government Enslavement of the Media (GEM).

He said the Government acknowledged freedom of the Internet but action could be taken against those who misuse it to spread allegations against the Government. 

Whoops, what was I just saying? Time for EVERY SINGLE BLOGGER WHO DOES NOT SUPPORT BARISAN NASIONAL to be arrested – because all of us have at least one allegation against the ruling party!!!

The memorandum appeals to Britain to refer Malaysia to the World Court for crimes against ethnic Indians. It also claimed that “100 over Indians were slashed and killed by the Umno-controlled Malaysian government in the Kampung Medan mini genocide”.

To this, Abdullah said that if Hindraf had indeed made such claim, Umno would act.

“We want to know what proof they have (to support their claim). This is a serious accusation because they say it was Umno,” he said.

Claims such as the ones in this link I suppose.

On Hindraf’s action, he said: “They want to kiss the orang putih (British). They want the orang putih to take action because they are not satisfied with us”.

Absolutely spot on. Badawi seems to realize that the actual aim of the high-profile and quite absurd lawsuit against Britain was actually to highlight the grievances that many Malaysians have against the MALAYSIAN government!

The Prime Minister also said that everyone must realise that accusations against the Government were made because certain people thought that the election was around the corner, and this was the case in every elections.

Accusations are made continually, good sirs. It is just around election time that any of you bother to listen for grievances.

And after listening to our woes, your Deputy responds that we shouldn’t vote against Barisan even if we are dissatisfied with what it’s been doing to us!

“But we hear what they say. Some of the demands are in the process of being addressed while some have been addressed but they are still harping on it,” he said.

It’s been more than 40 years since Lee Kuan Yew got Singapore kicked out by demanding equal rights for all (all races, religions and even the Malay farmers and fishermen who gain nothing from rich Malay bigshots getting more % of the fat contracts) in a truly Malayasian Malaysia, a call which DAP is continuing up till today. (But not before some 1960’s Government Enslaved Media riot incitement, of course.)

The issue still has not been addressed. Is it any wonder then that there are still people harping on it?

Actually, it’s a minor miracle that there ARE still people who dare to raise the issue after the May 13 1969 incident, Ops Lalang in 1987, the recent Bersih Rally and HINDRAF rally police violence, and the repeated threats to bring back the bloodshed of Malaysia’s minorities.

On Cameron Highlands MP S.K. Devamany’s comment in Parliament that the Hindraf demonstration showed there was frustration at the lower levels in the community, Abdullah said the Government must be fair to all.

“If we focus on the interest of one group, others will be jealous, others will complain,” he said. 

THEN WHY DON’T YOU START TREATING ALL MALAYSIANS FAIRLY REGARDLESS OF RACE AND RELIGION??!!!

WE’RE JEALOUS RIGHT NOW!!! WE’RE COMPLAINING RIGHT NOW!!!

BUT ALL YOU DO IS SPOUT FUZZY RHETORIC WHILE WAVING THE THREAT OF THE ISA IN OUR FACES!!!

Iraqi Bride of Terror

November 28, 07

Because the burqa is huge, dark, face-concealing and all-enveloping… And because women are not supposed to be approached by men in a strict Islamic society… Male terrorists have often dressed in burqas and pretended to be women in order to escape detection.

A few sample cases:

Macho and lead-by-example Taliban leader tries escape then ambush from under a burqa.

A whole bunch of them.

Brave and defiant Red Mosque siege leader tries to escape dresses as a woman.

Courageous and honorable Hamas gunmen call on women to come and be human shields, escape among them by dressing as women. Also at this link.

Unbending and pious Taliban commander disguised in burqa.

It’s getting so widespread, that the UN worries transgenders will have problems!!!

Selfless and righteous foreign terrorists cross from Syria to Iraq, pull weapons out of their dresses.

Burqua Bomber Blown Away Before Going Boom:

Suicide bomber disguised as veiled woman kills 19 at medical graduation ceremony – way to go killing Muslim doctors, a$$hole.

Many more examples at Michelle Malkin, and The Jawa Report here, here, here, and here.

Two burqa-clad suicide bombers try to blow up a police station, but get shot up before they can detonate.

A German al Qaeda operative caught dallying about in a burqa.

But this one via The Jawa Report really takes the cake… THE WEDDING CAKE!!!

Lolz! Be sure to read the comments at the Jawa link, such as these fine examples below:

Evil Bush regime bans gay marriage… in foreign country! – Kevin

Two in burqas kill 32 poor people

From CNN:

Soldiers manning a checkpoint near Baghdad stopped a wedding convoy to find that the purported bride and groom were wanted terror suspects.

The soldiers became suspicious of the convoy because its members — save the “bride” — were all male and because one of the cars in the convoy did not heed orders to stop.

The people in the car seemed nervous and the groom refused to lift his bride’s veil when soldiers asked him to.

Soldiers ordered everyone out of the car.

Upon inspecting the convoy, soldiers found a stubbly-faced man, Haider al-Bahadli, decked out in a white bride’s dress and veil.

Bahadli was wanted on terror-related charges, as was his groom, Abbas al-Dobbi.

Two other terror-related suspects were detained as well.

Anyway, dressing up in drag doesn’t guarantee a successful suicide-bombing/cowardly escape from a real battle (since for self-proclaimed ‘brave warriors unafraid of death’, jihadis seem strangely averse to head-on confrontations).
 
Women can search women, as long as they are empowered in a way strict Islamic societies do not empower them.

Excerpted from The Jawa Report:

Adhamiyah Women Join Volunteer Guard Force

BAGHDAD — In a well-lit meeting room in a government building in the Iraqi capital, 20 Iraqi women were sitting in a circle, intently watching the demonstration in the center of the room.

These women were learning how to lock and load an AK-47.

As members of the first class of female security volunteers in Adhamiyah, all 51 women in the class were groundbreakers. The women will join hundreds of male residents that are already helping secure Adhamiyah by guarding important public sites like schools, hospitals, and government buildings.

The necessity to have female security guards became clear earlier this month when a female suicide bomber was able to enter a public building without being searched in nearby Fadhil and blew her explosive vest up, killing several people.

In Iraq, cultural sensitivities preclude men from searching women. But there is nothing stopping a woman from searching another woman.

Proper search procedures are one such skill area. On the second day of training, Cook demonstrated search techniques for the group. The class began with nervous titters among the Adhamiyah women, who blushed and looked away when Cook showed how to search sensitive areas.

But when Cook showed them how easy it is to hide a weapon if a thorough search isn’t conducted, the women stopped being timid and started really shaking each other down during role-playing exercises.

Then again… It could just be that Islamo-fascists extremists dress that way because, deep down inside, they are actually teh uber ghey:

Kandahar’s Lightly Veiled Homosexual Habits

“Round about them will serve boys of perpetual freshness.”

“And round about them will (serve) boys of everlasting youth. If you see them, you would think them scattered pearls.”

O the joy of sodomy!
So now be sodomites, you Arabs.
Turn not away from it–
therein is wondrous pleasure.
Take some coy lad with kiss-curls
twisting on his temple
and ride as he stands like some gazelle
standing to her mate.
A lad whom all can see girt with sword
and belt not like your whore who has
to go veiled.
Make for smooth-faced boys and do your
very best to mount them, for women are
the mounts of the devils

– 8th-century ‘greatest Arabic poet’ of mudhakkarat (boy love), Abu-Nuwas
