Proof of the murder of Chief Minister of Sabah

When there is a murder accusation, anyone withholding evidence is guilty of murder as well.
That means the Australian Government as well.
SAPP will demand Double Six findings
Published on: Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Kota Kinabalu: A test pilot here said if the Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) is voted into power in the coming general election, the new State Government of Sabah will demand from the Australian Government the release of its forensic findings on the air plane crash in the Double Six tragedy. Captain Joseph Lakai said plane crashes such as the Double Six tragedy that claimed the lives of former Chief Minister Tun Fuad Stephens and 10 others should be made public.
He said reports of such air crashes are useful in research to find out what went wrong whether it was due to pilot error, ground engineer errors, technical fault, air design fault, bad weather or other unexplained causes.
The former flight test engineer and test pilot in Royal Malaysian Air Force said the reports are also necessary for victims' families to pursue insurance and negligent claims against aircraft manufacturers and airlines.
"To keep the June 6, 1976 crash report continuously away from public sight, especially after 37 years, is completely unacceptable and unimaginable.
"The circumstances surrounding the air crash and the secrecy of the report into it can give rise to suspicions and speculations.
"As a patriotic Sabahan, an aviation consultant and a mechanical engineer, I fully agree with SAPP's efforts to uncover the truths behind the air crash by first getting the 1976 report released," he said.
He said SAPP's MP for Sepanggar, Datuk Eric Majimbun, had posed this question to the Federal Government in Parliament but to no avail.
He said the Double Six tragedy that took place on June 6, 1976 at Sembulan involved an Australian manufactured GAF Nomad N-22B type twin engine turboprop passenger aircraft operated by Sabah Air.
The then Sabah's Chief Minister Tun Fuad Stephens perished in the crash, along with Datuk Salleh Sulong, Datuk Wahid Peter Andu, Datuk Peter Mojuntin, Datuk Chong Thain Vun and Datuk Darius Binion.
The other victims were Fuad's son Johari, Dr Syed Hussien Wafa, Ishak Atan, Corporal Said Mohammad and pilot Captain Nathan Ghandi.
"Immediately after the crash, there were allegations of foul play due to the political circumstances at that time," Lakai said.
He said the Australian government sent a team of four investigators to assist in the investigation of the crash.
He said preliminary investigations indicated overloading was one of the contributing factors.
"However, the real reason remains a mystery and the air mishap surrounding is still unexplained and this had haunted many who tried to seek the truth behind the tragic incident, while the original report on the incident remains classified until today," he added.
He said the people of Sabah want to know why the 1976 report remains classified and not allowed to be published.
"Now we Sabahans want and should know the truth about what really happened on June 6, 1976.
He concluded that according to the National Archives of Australia record series B5535 Annexure 1S33(1)(a) - Reason for decision (not to make public the findings) were because;
- Annex 13 of the Convention on International Civil Aviation - Aircraft Accident and Incident Investigation requires that a participating state in an investigation not release details of the investigation without the permission of the main investigating state.
- Malaysia has not as yet publicly released their final and full report of the investigation.
- The Australian Transport Safety Bureau undertakes investigation of aircraft accidents under Annex 13. The public disclosure of this information would lessen the confidence of foreign governments in Australia's commitment to meeting the requirement of Annex 13 and compromise the future activities of the ATSB and impair its ability to carry out its statutory function.
- Release of the information could reasonably be expected to cause damage to the international relation of the Commonwealth.
Annexure 1 S33 (1) (b), he said, stated:
- The information was of an inherently confidential nature when communicated to the Australian government.
The information is still afforded security protection by the foreign government and it has asked that the information not be disclosed to the public.
- The disclosure of this information would therefore constitute a breach of confidence owed of that foreign government.

Ming Dynasty started as a Muslim Empire


Posted 25 February 2009 - 03:41 PM

I stumbled upon a website saying that Zhu Yuanzhang who was the founder of the Ming Dynasty could possibly be a Muslim, and that whether if he was a Han is questionable. Heres the excerpt from the link:

"Is Ming Dynasty Muslim- Fact or Speculation?

Many people question the identity of the first Ming emperor, Zhu Yuanzhang or Hongwu Emperor. Some claim that he was a Muslim of Semitic (Semu) Non-Han origin.

Yusuf Chang, a Chinese Muslim from Taiwan, was one of those who made this claim. He claimed that his ancestor had married a Ming princess and thus he was a descendant of Zhu Yuanzhang and knew the secrets of the Islamic religion of the Ming royal family.

He presented many startling evidences to support his claims. They are:

1. When Zhu Yuanzhang was young, his family perished in a famine and he buried them by wrapping them in white clothes. Wrapping the dead in white clothes is a Muslim custom.

2. Zhu Yuanzhang's closest associates were Muslims. Thus, the Ming dynasty was founded by Muslims.

3. Zhu Yuanzhang passed a strict law forbidding 'wine'. Once he had the son of his close associate executed for breaking the law. 'Wine' is strictly forbidden in Islam.

4. Empress Ma (Zhu's consort) was a Muslim. She had personally cook all the meals for Zhu, even after he had become the Emperor.

5. The royal colour of the Ming dynasty was green, the colour which symbolizes Islam.

6. Zhu Yuanzhang ordered the building of a mosque in Nanjing soon after he ascended the throne and he personally wrote a poem praising Islam and Prophet Muhammad. This poem is seen by Muslims as the 'syahada' the testimony of Zhu's faith in Islam.

7. Many Muslims rose to high ranks during the Ming dynasty. One good example was Admiral Zheng He. Admiral Zheng He's fleet sailed to Mecca, Arabia and performed the 'haj'. Yusuf Chang claims that Zheng He was sent by the Ming emperor to perform the 'haj' on his behalf because the emperor was not able to do so as he wanted to keep his religion a secret among the non-Muslim masses. This practice is allowed in Islam.

8. The Ming dynasty established good ties with many Muslim countries. This is because the Ming dynasty is Muslim and the religion of the Ming royal family is Islam.

9. The Islamic Calendar was made the official calendar during the Ming dynasty. "

An excellent article equating Sabah's predicament with Palestine


In whose hands lies Sabah’s destiny?

Vidal Yudin Weil | February 1, 2013
It is time to end decades of grinding uncertainty which has harmed the economic growth of Sabah.
For more than three and a half decades, the people of Sabah have always been aware of the huge number of foreigners arriving here and given fast-track citizenships to become voters.
We now hear directly from the horses’ mouth in the Royal Commission of Inquiry, confirming the clandestine modus operandi employed by Umno and carried out by the Election Commission and National Registration Department in rigging every Sabah election to sabotage the Sabahans’ choice of governments.
Unless the Barisan Nasional federal government now swiftly abolish the death penalty like it did the Internal Security Act, all the conspirators from both sides of the political divide might be sent to the gallows for high treason when their immunity from prosecution is revoked and removed once a change of government takes place.
Why even from the opposition side? How were they involved? For those who do not already know, apart from the dead and retired, 90% of the remaining perpetrators are now playing active roles in PKR and they are all at the top levels.
It is a fact known to all politicians from the peninsula that all along Malaya needs resource-rich Sabah and Sarawak to stay afloat instead of vice versa and one way to ensure that the money keeps pouring in is to deny and prevent the legitimate people of Sabah, at all costs and by all immoral and illegal means, from electing a state government that will turn off the hydrant.
But one question kept popping up among the people here even from the villages these days: is this union called Malaysia still tenable at all by international democratic standards propagated by the United Nations?
Many people in Malaya, including also senior constitutional lawyers and history professors, are pathetically confused that Malaysia is Malaya while Sabah and Sarawak are merely states like the 11 states in the peninsula.
What they never try to find out was: does Malaysia really have sovereignty without Sabah and Sarawak in the equation?
Is this what has become of citizens who were hoodwinked from young with a distorted version of events riddled with major historical inaccuracies and an endless series of purely fictional scenes played by non-existent characters and peddled by a government which is totally bankrupt of morals?
Is the Malaysia Agreement signed in 1963 actually legal? Does Britain have sovereignty over the whole of Sabah when giving independence? Is the Malaysian government still paying annual rentals to the heirs of the Sulu sultanate until today? If the Malaysia Agreement is illegal, doesn’t that mean that Sabah is technically still a British colony then?
Scotland with all its oil wealth in the North Sea will decide in a referendum by its people in 2014 whether to leave the United Kingdom; South Sudan with all its petroleum wells is now an independent nation as from 2011; likewise, if it is no longer in Sabah’s interest to remain in an unreformed union, should the legitimate people of Sabah be given the opportunity to decide in a referendum conducted by the United Nations if they would still be in favour of staying on or leave Malaysia?
Or, will Sabah secede and declare independence like Kosovo from Yugoslavia in 2008 which the International Court of Justice at The Hague ruled in 2010 that the unilateral declaration of independence by the democratically and legitimately elected government of Kosovo does not violate any international laws?
But then again, isn’t it better and more fun to remain and make the federal government beg for financial survival?

Can Sabahans trust Anwar?

Sabah people resent the interference of Kuala Lumpur in their lives and their disillusionment with the BN federal government is now at an all-time high.
It is time for the people to have their say to settle this Malaysian quagmire in Sabah politics; this is the time Sabah voters must decide whether to claw back the sovereignty of Sabah from Malaya.
Voters in Sabah must use this chance to choose whether they want to be ruled by Malaya or to determine their own affairs while opting to stay in Malaysia.
This time, the situation is more serious than the political battles of 1976 and 1985 when Usno and Berjaya were kicked out respectively.
Do the people of Sabah still remember the long list of developments promised by Anwar Ibrahim to be carried out within 100 days after hijacking the mandate of the people in 1994? What came out of it? Will we still trust a Pakatan Rakyat led by this same man?
It is time to end decades of grinding uncertainty which has harmed the economic growth of Sabah.
Sabahans must send a historic ultimatum to Malaya to get out of Sabah affairs by showing all their parties the exit door. The bullying must be stopped. We must roll out the red carpet for a grand send-off for all the Malaya-based parties.
Until Sabah is finally free from all forms of interference by any party from Malaya, everyone is a slave.
The present BN government does not embrace reforms and the current chief minister does not have an effective and intelligent Cabinet. BN politicians are most dangerous, most obnoxious, and the least intelligent.
Will the election manifesto of local opposition parties insist that powers be returned to the state as her interests are best served in a complete autonomy and promise the people to be flexible and adaptable in order to re-invent the economy of Sabah?
As millions of Malaysians in Sabah are saddled with debts, will there be major changes to difficult questions confronting Sabah? Will our local opposition politicians make us more competitive? Will they be fair and democratically accountable? Our economy is now very brittle and recovery must not take longer than six months; we badly need a new chief minister who is capable of change and ensure that citizens have jobs, small businesses will not struggle with low turnovers, and families not squeezed by high inflation.

Najib embarrassed

It was reported that in the second quarter of 2012, government debt was expected to be around RM503 billion or about 54% of GDP; we are indeed standing on the thin rope of bankruptcy.
As usual, a major international embarrassment happened last week to our prime minister.
Our beleaguered and embattled Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak went overseas to Gaza in a bid to divert attention away from all his failures at home exactly like what former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad did when he was pushed to a tight corner; only this time, it backfired right into his face when Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas denounced Najib’s visit as interfering in their domestic affairs.
Many Malaysians, particularly 99% of the Malays, do not understand the Palestine conflict. The issue in Palestine was never about religion between Judaism and Islam; it was always about the occupation of land and flooding the occupied territories with Jews from all over the world.
The facts are that many Jewish Israelis do not agree with their government’s actions and supported the Palestinians in their struggle; and that many leaders and victims in Palestine are in fact Christians – Hanan Daoud Khalil Ashrawi is one fine example, among others.
Every year when he was still alive, Yasser Arafat accompanied his Christian wife Suva into church to celebrate Christmas mass and one particular year he took to the pulpit and told the congregation in front of international media that Jesus Christ was born a Palestinian and He (Jesus) also would have fought the Israeli occupation.
Did our Malay leaders tell the citizens, particularly the Muslims, about this? Instead, they make it look like as if it was a Jewish conspiracy against Islam.
Are the Muslim people of Palestine closer in brotherhood to the Muslims of Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Iraq, and Syria who fought and brought down their tyrannical governments or are they closer to the Muslims of Malaysia who support a despotic government corrupted to the core?
A government that relied on suppressing the people and keeping them segregated and unequal in religion and race as a tactic to hold on to power? A country where citizens were denied the attainment of equal individual and collective rights which should also include the right to separate identities and cultural institutions after five miserable decades of so-called independence?
Is it any surprise that integration and living in harmony was never in Umno-BN’s vocabulary?
Doesn’t the Umno-led BN government look more like the cruel regimes of Hosni Mubarak, Muammar Gaddafi, Ben Ali, Saddam Hussein, and Bashar al-Assad?
The question now is no longer whether all these are being done to dupe the Malay Muslim voters, but whether the Malay Muslims are still gullible enough to be fooled?
Sabah’s situation is no different from Palestine; we are also fighting occupation by Malaya politicians who are flooding us with foreigners by giving them citizenships.
Like Palestine, all the Christians and Muslims in Sabah must kick them out.

Unethical AIRASIA destroying SABAH

By not providing direct flights from Kota Kinabalu to Seoul, while both Korean Air and Asiana direct flights are always full, AIRASIA is destryoying Sabah's tourism industry. Tourism industry is the only industry left where the benefits go to Sabahans. Timber, oil palm and petroleum industries mostly benefit West Malaysians.

The solution is very simple. Just return the landing rights to Tokyo and Seoul to Malaysia Airlines. By not doing anything about it, when it was the BN government's decision to transfer the landing rights from MAS to AIRASIA, BN is responsible for more destruction of Sabah and MAS.

By destroying both Sabah and MAS, BN is destroying the nation as well. Lies about MAS losing in these flights are more proofs about BN lack of concern about Sabah. Direct flight to Tokyo was almost full even just a few months after the radiation scare. The direct flight to Hong Kong that I also took recently was also almost full. MAS staff cannot get standby seats on flights to Korea.
