Of course the reason why Guan Eng raised the issue on the eve of Christmas was political. There was no two ways about that. It's to appear that Christians in this country were being oppressed and denied their rights.
The target audience of that issue in my opinion were actually Christians in Sabah and Sarawak , especially the bumiputera of that faith who had for years been using the word Allah in reference to their God. Guan Eng message was made, so that they will see the evil Barisan Nasional government as suppressing their co-religionists in the Peninsular. It's all for their votes, of course.
As if the ordinary Christians in the Peninsular really care about using the word "Allah" to refer to their God.
It appeared that Guan Eng doesn't even seems to care about the consequences of his bait for the Christians in Sabah and Sarawak to DAP's Muslim allies in PKR and Pas.
Muslims in PKR and Pas should know that raising the "Allah in the Bible" issue so close to the general election could prove fatal for them who will mostly contest in Malay Muslim dominated constituencies in the Peninsular.
This is the posting where I wrote the above -DAP's Muslim allies in a fix on Christmas eve
True enough, what happened after that was the flipping and flopping of the Pakatan Muslims, especially those in Pas.
First, Pas Dewan Ulama chief Harun Taib said only Muslims should use the word Allah. Then, a few days later, party president DS Abdul Hadi Awang said the non-Muslims can also use the word Allah and he was supported by the party's spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat. Less than a week later, the all powerful Syura Council of the party decided that the word Allah must only exclusively be used by Muslims. With that Nik Aziz reversed his earlier stand in accordance with what was decided by the Syura Council. Hadi, however, had stayed quiet on the matter.
Opposition leader DS Anwar Ibrahim, meanwhile has from the start being supportive of Guan Eng's incitement of the issue. I think he has no choice on the matter. PKR is dependent on DAP's election machinery in states such as Selangor where their on-the-ground forces were rather weak, or Johor where it was almost non-existence. They also need the DAP's Chinese supporters to back them up in the marginal constituencies where their candidates will mostly contest. Furthermore, Anwar is likely of the opinion that an alliance with DAP is more valuable than its alliance with Pas. PKR is after all marketing itself as a party for especially the liberal urban Malays while Pas is a party for the Muslim conservatives in the rural areas.
So, with that in mind, after the Pas' Syura Council decided to prevent the non-Muslims from using the word Allah to describe their gods, Anwar's right hand man Azmin Ali came out with a statement saying that the Pakatan's stand remains the same - the non-Muslims may use the word Allah. Pas' opposite stand following its Syura Council's decision doesn't matter, insisted Azmin.
The question at that point was - how come Pas' decision on the matter could be irrelevant when Pakatan insisted on allowing the non-Muslims to use the word Allah?
Yesterday, Anwar apparently gave an answer to that question during a Press conference.
He said, as far as the rest of Pakatan were concerned, the decision by Pas' Syura Council doesn't carry any weight to the opposition coalition because all that matter to DAP and PKR was Hadi's initial statement which supports Guan Eng's call for the word Allah to be used in the Malay language Bible.
Now, this placed the ball at Hadi's feet. Let's wait for him to make a statement which will be recognized by Anwar and the rest of Pakatan as the official stand of Pas on the kalimah Allah issue.
It is not going to be easy for Hadi as he knows he will be scoring an own goal no matter which direction he kicked the ball.
If Hadi is to follow what Guan Eng and Anwar want, he will face discontent within Pas which members mostly want the Muslims to have the exclusive right to use the word Allah. It will also cause irreparable damage to Pas' Islamists credential among Muslims in the Peninsular. But if he decides to uphold the Syura Council's decision, he will first be seen as a fool for initially supporting Guan Eng and Anwar on the issue and secondly, it will spell the beginning of the end for Pas as a member in Pakatan.
My bet is, Hadi will keep quiet on this issue at least until after the general election.
But, the writings were clearly on the wall following Anwar's statement yesterday - Pas is slowly but surely being made known of their actual place in the probable new Malaysia under Pakatan rule.
It's simple - Pas people will need to toe the line, failing which, DAP and PKR will once again unleash the likes of Patrick "motherfucker" Teo to bite their sorry kampung ass.

It is good for Islam, Christian has accepted that their god is ALLAH, same as Islam.
So it is time that the Christian changed their praying rituals to be as the Muslim.
it is not accepting Allah as their god. Please be clear about that. Refer to Surah Al IkhlasReplyDelete
The time is almost here, where Christians will convert to Islam.ReplyDelete
Jesus (peace be upon him) will return to the earth in the last-days near a mosque in Damascus. He will returns as a Muslim, and in keeping with his identity as a faithful Muslim, he will perform the ritual pilgrimage to Mecca called hajj:
The Prophet (Muhammad AS (peace be upon him) said: Verily Isa ibn Maryam shall descend as an equitable judge and fair ruler. He shall tread his path on the way to hajj (pilgrimage) and come to my grave to greet me, and I shall certainly answer him!
Jesus (peace be upon him) does not merely come back to convert most Christians to Islam but to literally abolish Christianity entirely.
Yeah, they are all - flip flop politicians? What happens if the Buddist and the Indian want to change their GOD to ALLAH?ReplyDelete
Will Anwar and LGE accommodate their request?
In the first place, they are not people of the books, they do not have the knowledge or religion leadership to decide on this matter! they are just a corrupt politicians fishing for votes, inciting unnecessary commotions to further their wicked goals!
In the end, more than PAS' ass is bitten by Anwar, worst still..it is a gang '****'.
The three devils playing with fire, ended up the whole peace loving country got burn.ReplyDelete
They are mocking up ALLAH, because they knows they can sin and not worry about it because ALLAH will forgive them some time in the future. ALLAH's nature is LOVE.
But then again, Anwar and LGE are MURTADs - so they don't really mind about forgiveness, and PAS leaders - as always sitting on the fence..want to enjoy sin but worries about losing their followers..but not worry about ALLAH.
When PR first ruled the 5 states, make believe statements coming from PAS supporters, LGE is like Saidina Omar, have read Quran 5 times. PAS likes to make this " make believe " statements, nak menyedap hati masing2. Soalnyer, kenapa LGE tak masuk Islam lagi? Lampu hidayah tak sampai2 ke? Now LGE's pushed the psychology religion war to everyone with his Christmas's speech. Orang2 PAS tak sedar2 lagi ke? PAS has actually sold their religion to get them a seat in Putrajaya.ReplyDelete
Anon 9.46, you are right about PAS selling their religion in order to get a seat in Putrajaya, but they are doing it because of their recklessness in pursuing the bigger sinister agenda.ReplyDelete
With LGE and Anwar's agreement that there is One GOD which is ALLAH. This is the opportunity that PAS is looking for, in their pursuit for Islamisation of Malaysia and installation of their Hudud Law.
It would be difficult for PAS to install their Hudud and Syariah Law if there are too many religions in Malaysia. With the Muslim and Christian praying to One GOD; which means there are already more than 75% of the population of Malaysia is under their control, it is easier for them to push for Hudud to be implemented.
Unknowing to Anwar and LGE; Hadi, Nik Aziz and Mat Sabu are pursuing this agenda but the Ulamaks, being the righteous people are not willing to compromise their beliefs, thus creating this messy flip-flopping.
For the Hindus and Buddhist, they are going to be short-changed, as most of the DAP's ADUN and MP's are all either Christians or Singhs. Look at all the problems of Hindu temples in Selangor, none of them are being solved by DAP and PKR.
Anwar has his own agenda – to be the Prime Minister by hook or by crook, DAP has its own agenda of Malaysian Malaysia (utopia agenda where everybody is equal except them) while PAS has its own. They all believe that by using ALLAH by sinister and wicked way, they will get what they want. THEY ARE WRONG – BIG TIME.
Or this could only be just a theory and they are all just plain crazy shallow minded dumb ass-hole motherfucker politicians.
Hadi, Nik Aziz and Anwar need to pause and look back, this is not about politics, This is about religion and faith.ReplyDelete
As what Ustaz Haron Din said, you are crossing the path of kufur..MURTAD!. There is One GOD which is ALLAH. There is no GOD except ALLAH, and Mohammad (pbuh) is his messenger.
This not about winning the election, this is between you and ALLAH. This is about the future of Islam and Muslim.
There is only One GOD - ALLAH. you cannot equate him with others, GOD cannot be translated to ALLAH! and Mohammad is his messenger not Jesus or holy ghost!
It is better that you all repent while you can! Don't be misled by LGE or DAP and your burning ambitions to become Prime Minister at all cost!
This not about UMNO or Malays or Christians, The Christians have their own GOD! They don't need to translate their GOD to ALLAH! The Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost, GOD is can be translated to Tuhan,
Even in Islam, There is no GOD except ALLAH, translated to malay - Tiada Tuhan yang disembah melainkan Allah. So ALLAH is a specific name.
Why LGE want to play dirty politics? He claimed that he already read Al-Quran - 5 times, then he should know better. He should also know that there are Muslims ever willing to commit JIHAD! He should also know that if he willing to belittle Islam or Mocking ALLAH, then there are Muslim willing to burn the bible.
This tit-tat and flip-flop argument will not do well for the country. Please don't turn this lovely peaceful country into another JIHADIST country!

The DAP was founded by Lee Kuan Yew and was in Opposition for 44 years. Now it is in just a General Elections arrangement with PKR and PAS to kick out the BN led by the UMNO with 14 component parties which is a properly registered group. The PR is not registered and exists in name only. In other words, only PAS has some credibility compared with PKR which is led by a very rich family with foreign and DAP completely influenced by Lee Kuan Yew, the one-man 55 years ruler of Singapore. During this period, Malaysia had 6 democratically elected Prime Ministers and is going to elect the 7th. Comparatively, Malaysia is a runaway success in human terms whilst Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore is a runaway failure in human terms !ReplyDelete
