BN’s Selection of Arrested Bloggers is Weird

Thus far we have three known bloggers that has been thrown into the slammer ( ever since the PAS-UMNO story broke out, that is):

  1. Penarik Beca
  2. Raja Petra Raja Kamaruddin
  3. Kickdefella

From the looks of things, there is a pattern emerging. Ever notice that the two blogger: Penarik Beca and Kickdefella are those link or at least expresses their open support to Husam Musa. Furthermore, these two bloggers have done their fair share of exposing the inner going-ons of certain factions in PAS (aka known as Fraksi UMNO – F.U.) that has been talking to UMNO behind everybody’s back.

The arrest of Penarik Beca is the most interesting one. It happened just after the time when the entire secret meeting was exposed to the public. In fact, it is Penarik Beca who actually made the first expose. He even exposed the entourage of PAS leaders to meet leaders of international Islamic movements to discuss possibility of a PAS-UMNO axis. Of course, the “entourage” came empty handed when their proposal was flatly rejected.

Soon after, Penarik Beca was arrested under the charge of Sedition for publishing a picture deemed disrespectful to the Malaysian Police. When in truth, he published an article directly from RPK’s website down to the last z. He probably didn’t notice the dog picture on the Police emblem. If any, it is RPK that should be arrested for the logo, not Penarik Beca.

Penarik Beca has the trust among PAS activists and members. He is a senior PAS members and has been active in the party since the early days of “Kepimpinan Ulama”. Naturally, what he writes will carry massive weight among the PAS rank-and-file.

Kickdefella published an article entitled “Kenyataan Nik Abdul Aziz Yang Di ‘Haramkan’”. Many of the readers may not realize this, but for those sensitive to the beat of the heart of PAS, this article is a death blow to the Fraksi UMNO. It means that the Fraksi UMNO will now have to run for cover to protect whatever’s left of their diminishing credibility among the PAS members.

Kickdefella gets readership, among all, from PAS members as well. Being that he is based in Kota Baru and close to PAS leaders, his publishing of the article CONFIRMS the authenticity of the article. Therefore, when the article appears in his blog, very few PAS members will question that Tok Guru Nik Aziz indeed issued the statement.

One must never forget that when the Tok Guru statement “hits the stands”, the fraksi UMNO was left with but one defense, that is to lay doubt about the authenticity of the statement. One can read such attempt at here.

But when Kickdefella publish such statement, the doubt is effectively gone. Kickdefella is more credible in terms of source because his proximity is closer to Tok Guru and Husam Musa. Therefore, his confirmation stands.

As for Raja Petra, we already know his various expose on UMNO leaders. But one must not forget that he is also instrumental in spreading information about the “fraksi UMNO” acts of indecency. His expose actually transferred the information to a myriad of people and not limited to a homogenous group.

Raja Petra’s expose on the Saiful Bukhari’s deception does more than what we know. As far as PAS is concerned, it knocked the wind off the Fraksi UMNO. Many of the senior leaderships and many of the Ulama council members were told of the existance of a “medical report” that clearly proves Anwar’s complicity in acts of sodomy beyond reasonable doubt.

After that, many among the Council felt they had to support the PAS-UMNO axis if anything to protect the image of PAS. But, Raja Petra foiled this plan, and he did it so well. After RPK’s expose, many of the member of the ulama council felt they were taken for a ride. And the Fraksi UMNO began to lose credibility bit by bit. Until today. The Fraksi UMNO final bullet that they are using right now is that Anwar Ibrahim is an American operative.

It's not so much UMNO attempt to smear Anwar being expose that hurt them. It's the fact that when the cat was let out of the bag, their effort to bring PAS over the fence was foiled. That's all that ever was.

I strongly protest Raja Petra’s incarceration under the ISA. If he is really guilty, charge him under the Shariah court. Let him have the right to defend himself. Muslims are not cowards. Islam is not a coward religion. When Islam says someone is wrong, Islam is willing to come out with sound argument to back it up.

Islam does not need to hide behind a cowardly instrument we have come to know as ISA (Ikut Suka Aku). For one, the Prophet pbuh has never taught his followers cowardice. Such act of arresting Raja Petra under ISA is an insult to Islam despite the justification given by the arresting authority being Islam-related.

IMHO, the recent arrests of bloggers have more to do with botching attempts by certain quarters in PAS to stop PAS from bridging over to the other side. It is like a help from above to the weakening Fraksi UMNO in their effort to ferry PAS into a PAS-UMNO axis.

I was told that the head of Fraksi UMNO got an earful from someone representing some UMNO leader on the delay of the PAS-UMNO axis. A dateline was given but in truth the Fraksi UMNO push has effectively being stopped at it’s tracks at this moment. They are reeling in defense and struggling to salvage whatever’s left of their credibility. UMNO has effectively given up on the PAS-UMNO objective.

Remember, if PAS is brought over to BN, it will be the biggest saving grace to Pak Lah’s hold on power. He will be invincible again and will sail through the UMNO elections with relative ease.

That’s what happened to UMNO back in 1969. When PAS joined UMNO after 1969, UMNO’s credibility among the Malays was reinstalled. They recovered all lost ground and in fact, added more. And 3 years after the 1974 elections (which they won with a massive landslide), they kicked PAS out of Barisan Nasional and rode on to rule the Malays on their own. It’s a good strategy which guarantees utmost result.

At the end of the day, bloggers can expose anything about the current UMNO. But, if PAS joins Barisan Nasional, all of the blogger's effort is laid to rest.

Still, there is no room for laxity and apathy. A possum ain’t dead till u scrape it off the road. They must continued be watched and spied upon and exposed. I will continue to expose their evil schemes as much as I could.

I am taking a big risk fighting the Fraksi UMNO. Look what happened to Penarik Beca, but I feel I have to do it. Otherwise, the wrong side will prevail.

I pray to Allah SWT that I shall be protected. Amin.

  1. TB!
    Good Morning, Saalam & Vanaakum!
    Its Friday 19th.,September,2008.
    I always look forward to Fridays & it inevitably is a day of Revelations!
    Over the past week I had been thinking hard about the matter of the ISA arrests, especially the "logic",if there ever is/was such,the arrests were founded on.
    BUT never did it occur the the matter of FU,cross my mind.
    When Sheih was arrested, I was in PUTRAJAYA and it occured to me the all the Malaysian Flags are flying upside down or at least down!!!
    Flags{National Flags} must necessarily fly horizontal!!!
    In any event , I have been following your postings and when this FU matter surfaced, I did not connect with the general state of affairs - u know how the mind likes to compartmentalise facts for easy understanding!!!!
    Until this posting!
    Weird , with respect, TB is an understament - down right stupid & blithering is my conclusion of the actions {or arresting the bloggers}
    Thank You for the illuminating perspective, TB !
    And perhaps like The Mission Impossible Team, maybe we should walk around with a "make over"!!!

  2. Dear TB,
    I would appreciate it if you could translate the article written by Sheih about Nik Aziz's letter. I've read his article a few time but till now couldn't comprehend. Thank you.

  3. Thank you, Metal Bones! Very illuminating.

  4. "A possum ain’t dead till u scrape it off the road."

    Tulang Besi. Ya won't have to do it alone. Gonna help you and PAS run this m*****-f****** possum down.

    BTW, Selamat Berpuasa and Selamat Hari Raya to you, Tulang Besi.

    God Bless Us All.

  5. TB, tell me what can I do to help?
    I'm willing to fight this evil BN/UMNO till the end..


  6. TB, good insights into the story behind the story. Keep up the good work. Take care.

  7. Good analysis.

    I've been thinking the ISA arrests have a hidden agenda, little related to what Botak talks about in public, but still trying to figure out the real background.

    Yes, getting PAS back into the fold would really save Dollah.
    The rest of his struggling right now only buys time.

  8. Thanks for the insight. Never see it this way and thanks for fighting for the right things. I do support Tok Haji and Hussam , who are rational thinkers.
    And i sense the terengganu side is more shaky.

  9. Keep up the good work, Saudara Rahman.


  10. Saya pun ada terfikir juga mengapa tangkap kickdefella, buka blog anti-husam yg mana kedua orang ini dekat dengan TGNA. Pasal penarik beca tu saya tak buat kaitan sebab tak tahu sangat. Rupa-rupanya ada kaitan juga.

    Saya rasa ada betul tanggapan sdr. ini cubaan melemahkan TGNA, dgn melemahkan hulubalang media savvy di sekelilingnya dan seterusnya melemahkan hubungan PAS dengan PKR dan Pakatan, yakni satu agenda FU mempengaruhi persepsi ahli PAS supaya meragui dan menolak kerjasama dengan Pakatan. Meskipun dnegan membelakangi keputusan muktamar PAS.

    Sebab itu kenyataan TGNA tidak disiarkan dalam Harakah sedangkan interview "September 16 gagal?" Datuk Mustafa Ali siar penuh bercetak dan juga siar penuh dalam TV PAS.

    Jelas gerak-geri FU ada hubungan dgn gerak-geri penguatkuasa ISA.

    Crazy is the word to describe the actions of the now defunct UMNO Government which has no more locus standi(legal standing) to govern but using whatever dirty & immoral tricks against the Pakatan Rakyat’s action to takeover the Federal Government. Since the takeover is imperative all the ISA detainees should be released immediately as the Present Regime no longer has the mandated power to govern.

    It is very Sad that the legacy of Malaysian Independence is reduced by this Moronic Flip Flop Coward into great disrepute and a laughing stock of the whole world and knowing very well that the UMNO Government has technically collapsed and but he has decided to shamelessly still cling on to power via dubious means like hiding himself via using of the ISA and we cannot imagine that the Malaysia Moronic Flip Flop Coward has now stoop so low and using the Police Deputy IGP as his willing tools especially the Deputy IGP’s clearly taking side as the Police must be neutral and should be not politiking for him.

    The Coward Moronic Flip Flop Chicken dare not meet DSAI face to face to settle matters but chose hiding under the use of ISA and that is what you have as a disgraceful cowardice leader for UMNO.

    After 51 years MALAYSIA IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE but backwards because of the Oppression from the UMNO goons’ divide and rule fear tactics the Rakyats have matured & you must see all this coming because All The Rakyats of Malaysia are all fed-up & can no longer with-stand the hypocrisies, bullshits, lies and deceits of these UMNO Clowns now in Power ok???

    We urge all BN Components MPs with a conscience to do the necessary to make possible a New Malaysia for all Rakyats of Malaysia so that all our children and their children & their children’s children’s future will be safe and secured in the Country we all love and not be intimidated by those UMNO Clowns now in power with their oppressive & fear tactics and in the verge of making Malaysia a Police State if left unchecked otherwise. Save RPK as he is the midst of a conspiracy of the real murderers of Altantuya to silence him for good, instead of being C4ed he could be poisoned and worse off if he is on hunger strike by himself. The Acting IGP is defending the Police position after being made the tools of UMNO’s fear tactics & so he is now making lame excuses for being the Stringed Puppet to be easily manipulated by the Puppeteer, power that be. The Deputy IGP must be held personally responsible for the safety of RPK who has been heard to be tortured otherwise he must be made to eat his own medicine come the New Dawn of Malaysia.

    Moronic PeeM and Botak Home Minister last minutes’ attempts to cling on power by using the fear tactics of using the ISA at their whims and fancies selectively against dissent & tried to deny their own actions as they now have no balls to face the wrath of the all the Rakyats of Malaysia. ONE DAY THE MORONIC BOTAK AND FLIP FLOP AND C4 MUST BE MADE TO TASTE THEIR OWN MEDICINE OK?

    All Rakyats of Malaysia will see to that these Clowns will be thrown out soon come the New Dawn of Malaysia & that all Rakyats of Malaysia will welcome the New Malaysia on Malaysia Day 916, 2008 for a Malaysia for All Malaysians.

    Justice MUST BE DONE for Altantuya and for all those detained under ISA without the trial nor the rights of appeal. Light-up a Candle in the Lantern of the Mid-Autumn Festival for them all to usher in the NEW DAWN OF MALAYSIA COME 916, 2008

  12. Tulang Besi,
    After I read your post, and re-reading your earlier write-ups, I realised you are also right in the middle of the PAS Fraksi-UMNO controversy.

    Take care, my friend.

  13. i wish all the PAS leaders have the wisdom and the great understanding of islam to fight the evil, aka UMNO.

  14. Salam TB aka RC,

    Quote Erat Demonstrandum...


  15. Dear TB,
