Malaysian PM Najib Razak indicted in multi-billion dollar embezzlement scandal, is seeking immunity in exchange for testimony against the Rothschilds


By Benjamin Fulford

July 30, 2016

CIA sources in East Asia alerted us to the fact the US Justice Department has indicted Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak for embezzling over $1 billion from a fund meant to be used for Malaysian economic development.

The indictment is calling for the seizure of all the profits from the Hollywood hit movie The Wolf of Wall Street, because it was financed with embezzled funds. The indictment also mentions Saudi Arabian royals, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Bank Privee Edmond de Rothschild.


The CIA sources source say Najib has asked for immunity and placement for him and his family in the witness protection program in exchange for testifying about the links between the embezzlement scandal, the Rothschild family and missing Malaysian Airlines flight 370. If so, this could be the case that finally brings down the Rothschild dynasty. The Rockefeller/Bush/Clinton branch of the Khazarian mafia is already being brought down in the US so if the Rothschilds are also brought down, this will mean liberation for humanity for the horrors of Babylonian debt slavery.
The indictment can be read here:

More details will be made available in the Weekly Geopolitical News and Analysis report due out on Monday, August 1st, 2016.

If You Choose an Awakened Woman~

Boy!… what a choice!
…unfortunately some if not most men are stuck with what’s at hand and perhaps wishing they had known better 😉

Sacred Dreams



If you choose to love an awakened woman, understand that you are entering into new, radical and challenging territory.

If you choose to love an awakened woman, you cannot stay asleep.

If you choose to love an awakened woman, every part of your Soul will be aroused, not just your sexual organs or even your heart.

Frankly, if you prefer a normal life, stick with a normal girl.

If you want a tame life, seek only a woman who has allowed herself to be tamed.

If you only want to dip your toe into the flowing waters of Shakti, stay with the safe, tamed woman who has not yet plunged into the wildness of the Sacred Feminine ocean.

It is comfortable to love a woman who has not yet activated her inner sacred powers, because she does not push your buttons.

Should we give Mahathir a chance to save Malaysia?

“Mahathir may not be the ideal candidate to lead the charge for change but, like it or not, he is now the only one with the experience, the standing, and the gravitas to seriously challenge Umno-BN.” – Ex-US Envoy

As a Malaysian I’ve observed this my entire life:

Malaysians generally are a lackadaisical (Tidah apa / Tak-mau-masuk-campur), and uninformed (pretty deep asleep) lot. Each pretty busy busy and preoccupied in their little small world.

There are other capable candidates too … the problem is the people’s support is very much lacking.

I’ve done a lot of talking for more than two decades even under Mahathir’s time…and most of it to empty heads.

What most people go for is only to change the ‘players

People are unable to see that ALL the current problems in the country is due to the “game” we’ve been led to play…its the symptom of a very sick game.

Bloody BIG mistake!

I say we have to change the game – the rotten fu*king “SYSTEM

…and this is where the empty heads start to run and hideaway.

Change is frightening?

To get what we’ve never had we must do what we’ve never done

So Malaysians, what have you gotta say?




COMMENT The quick answer is, “Yes, but…”

Dennis Ignatius, a veteran of Malaysia’s foreign service, recently wrote an article in which he said,Mahathir may not be the ideal candidate to lead the charge for change but, like it or not, he is now the only one with the experience, the standing, and the gravitas to seriously challenge Umno-BN.”

Dennis said that “our nation is deteriorating rapidly, and our democracy is dying.”

I agree with both points that Dennis made.

The question is – why should we give former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad a chance?

But to me, there is no comparison between Mahathir’s day and the incredible kleptocracy that we see today under Najib.

In the old days, people were content to steal millions. Then it was tens of millions. Now, under Najib, it is billions that have disappeared.

In the old days, Siti Hasmah was respected; today Rosmah is despised.

In the old days, Mahathir flew on Malaysia Airlines (MAS); today Rosmah and Najib fly around the world for shopping trips on private jets…read further

Mahathir: A glimmer of hope

Are you destined to become a spiritual Elder?

In our world, spiritual elderhood is a rarity. Since birth we are conditioned to believe that money, power, fame and success will bring us happiness. But eventually we realize that this is a grand delusion. Even the richest, most respected people continue to suffer from emptiness, depression, drug abuse and meaninglessness.

Yet somehow, many of us still feel pressured to continue our soulless pursuits, always chasing for the next “fix” and next temporary stimulation to fill our inner voids.

On the other hand, those of us who have woken up have realized that something in our lives needs to change. We have stopped looking outside for our happiness and have begun to go on an inner quest within the realms of our minds, hearts and souls for answers.

Yet despite our spiritual awakening, many of us are left wondering, “WHAT NEXT?” In other words, after you have experienced a spiritual awakening, what are the next steps to take?

Inside you might have this vague feeling that the next steps involve some kind of self-examination, but with so many paths available, which one do you take?

Spiritual Elderhood and Soulwork

I’m not here to give you a path — whatever path you choose is uniquely up to you and your soul purpose.

Instead, I’m simply here to give you my message. In fact, all of the articles on this website reflect this one message:

The need for soulwork.

Whatever path you choose, you will not get very far without listening to your soul. Wherever you go, you will not progress without letting your soul ripen and blossom into maturity.

Soulwork is the core need of every path and every pursuit. Without it, our lives feel empty, dead, directionless and meaningless. Without it, we remain psychologically and spiritually immature. In other words, without soulwork we can never ripen into our fullest potential.

Right now, you might be wondering what soulwork is.

It’s simple: soulwork is the process of working on your soul. This is done through the active practices of self-discovery, acceptance and healing.

Only when we actively commit to soulwork every day can we grow into what I refer to as the spiritual Elder.

As master Lao Tzu once said:

One who knows others is intelligent. One who knows himself is enlightened. (Tao Te Ching verse 33)

11 Traits of a Spiritual Elder



Many people have asked me whether being an Old Soul is the end of the spiritual journey. My response is no, it’s not.

You can be born as an old soul, you can be born sensitive, intelligent or with intuitive gifts, but does that make you spiritually mature? Or even wise? Not necessarily.

Spiritual maturity comes with practice, effort and dedication. It’s something mankind rarely cultivates — but we all have the potential to develop it. Unfortunately, only a rare few do. And that is why true spiritual Elders are scarce in our society.

How many spiritual Elders have you met in your lifetime? Likely, you haven’t met very many, because very few people have ever put in the effort, or have the deep thirst for illumination.

Thankfully, within us all lies the capacity to develop wisdom. This ability to cultivate wisdom is not only reserved for old men and women, but it’s also available to us right now no matter how young or old we are.

Below I’ve compiled a list of 11 traits of the spiritual Elder, both from my own experience and those I have encountered on my path:

1. They have no interest in condemning other people.

Spiritual Elders have no interest in judging other people for how awakened/unawakened, spiritual/unspiritual, kind/unkind, they appear to be. Everything is as it’s supposed to be in the grand scheme of things. They are aware that at one point they were in the same place, and that there is always a painful story behind every action and word. They realize that judging is more about the judger, than the one being judged.

As a famous quote says, “Once you awaken, you will have no interest in judging those who sleep.”

2. They have a deep respect for the earth and all of life.

Elders honor and show compassion to the earth, its wisdom and every expression of Spirit. They are aware that they do not “own” or possess the earth, but are instead an equal participant. No living being is “superior” or “inferior” to another.

3. They are aware of the role of the ego.

Elders are aware of the voice of the ego within them and its role in creating division and suffering. For this reason, their attachment to the ego is loose and their attachment to Spirit is much greater.

4. They are highly sensitive and empathetic without being reactive.

Elders are highly sensitive to the thoughts, emotions and impulses both within themselves, and within other people. They are aware of the play of energy dynamics in different environments, and can easily put themselves in the shoes of others. However, Elders don’t suffer at the hands of their empathy or sensitivity because they have learned to establish boundaries, cultivate self-responsibility and non-resistance.

5. They are natural teachers.

Elders have an innate desire to share their wisdom and they are the living embodiment of their teachings. No official position, degree or title is required for them to share the lessons of the soul.

6. They are able to embody unconditional love.

… both for themselves and for others, even despite the worst circumstances. They realize that to love wholly is to attain Divinity.

7. They are aware of spiritual bypassing traps.

Elders know how prevalent and pervasive spiritual bypassing is, and they can easily discern truth from illusion. As a result, they are easily able to identify tricks of the mind and ego traps which lead to stunted spiritual growth.

8. They have few attachments.

Elders have learned the importance of losing attachment to promises, prestigious titles, money, property, relationships, beauty and even health, knowing that all of these things are passing. Instead, they have cultivated strength at the level of Spirit and Soul.

9. They know that peace is now.

Long ago Elders learned that the pursuit of happiness is an endless quest that perpetuates unhappiness. As a result, they are aware that the only true peace and joy that can be found is in the present moment. Consequently, Elders carry a boundless and changeless sense of peace that remains despite inner or outer circumstances.

10. They are happy both alone and with others.

Elders have completed their solitary path of self-discovery as lone wolves, and have returned back to the pack with deep insight and understanding. They have learned to carry the peacefulness, wholeness and authenticity that they discovered in solitude in the company of others as well.

11. They have found wholeness.

Finally, Elders have rediscovered the truth that they are already whole and complete at a core level – and the same applies to all human beings regardless of whether they know it or not. Consequently, Elders no longer feel the need to pursue happiness or contentment in anything outside of themselves. Life is seen to be perfect, just the way it is.


Can you imagine what would happen if we had more spiritual Elders within the fields of teaching, politics, science, medicine and religion? Imagine what the world would look like.

What are your thoughts about spiritual Elderhood?


Sister of #MH370 pilot: My brother is a scapegoat


She does not believe reports he flew a simulated route that matched the plane’s eventual course

Kuala Lumpur (CNN) Nearly two-and-a-half-years after the disappearance of flight MH370, the sister of the chief pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah still “thinks of him the first thing in the morning and cries for him the last thing at night.”

Sakinab Shah struggles to control her emotions as she talks about her brother, who was in charge of the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 when it disappeared from radar screens in the early morning of March 8, 2014.

Even though an investigation by Malaysian police found no evidence that Zaharie was suffering any personal or financial stresses at the time, his sister says that he remains a “scapegoat” and that she has to defend him.

‘The FBI did their tests’

Sakinab spoke to CNN from her home in Kuala Lumpur days after a piece in New York Magazine claimed that new evidence supporting the theory that pilot suicide caused the plane’s disappearance.

The magazine quoted a leaked document from an FBI investigation that showed deleted files had been recovered from Zaharie’s home-built flight simulator.

They reportedly revealed he had plotted a course into the deep southern Indian Ocean — a course that closely matched the final flight MH370 is thought to have taken. Investigators said the simulator files had been created just weeks before the jet disappeared, according to the document.

But Zaharie’s sister dismisses the claim, saying it was a “fabrication.”

“They did their tests in 2014, there was nothing incriminating in his activities,” she says.

“The FBI did their tests … if there was anything, the police would be the first people to know. That’s why this story has been dismissed.”

“He’s been made a scapegoat from the beginning. This latest accusation? Oh my God. Heaven forbid.”

Sakinab said that, according to Zaharie’s wife and children, the simulator had not been working for at least a year before MH370’s final flight. The family could not be reached for comment.

Malaysian authorities also refused repeated requests to comment on the New York Magazine report.

Australian authorities say reports about the simulator have jumped to conclusions. Data from the simulator doesn’t reveal anything about what happened aboard MH370, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau said. It only shows a “possibility” of planning and provides a “piece of information,” Transport Minister Darren Chester said.

‘I knew him inside out’


Sakinab Shah

Despite their 17-year difference in age, there is no doubting the strength of the bond between Sakinhab and her younger brother, who she calls Ari.

“Even when he became a grandfather I still looked upon Ari as my own child, my own son and whatever problems he encountered I would be the first he would come to,” she says.

“I knew him like the back of my hand. I knew him inside out.”

Asked to describe her brother, Sakinab pauses, thinking deeply, before saying he was “very loving, wonderfully considerate and generous. A very, very generous younger brother — in fact most generous one of our family.”

Zaharie was the second-youngest of nine children, he won a scholarship to university but instead chose to pursue a career in aviation.

“He was a young boy, 14 or 15, when he fell in love with airplanes,” Sakinab says.

Her brother completed his pilot’s license in the Philippines and in 1981 joined Malaysian Air Systems (MAS), where he notched up more than 18,000 hours flying time.

Sakinab says the last time she saw him was at a family lunch a couple of weeks before the flight disappeared

“He was his normal self. If you met him you would like him. Very boisterous, fun-loving guy, he was teasing his nieces and offering his opinions. Among us he was the most opinionated.”

‘I was screaming’


Zaharie in a family photo (far right seated) provided by his sister (middle back)

On the day of MH370’s disappearance, Sakinab learned it was her brother’s plane when she saw his photo on television.


“I was screaming. I was all alone in the house. I was screaming ‘no, no, Ari, Ari.’ He’d been flying for over 30 years, he was so senior, he knew what he was doing.”

Initially the family avoided talking to the press, but as speculation over the plane’s disappearance and the involvement of the pilots grew, Sakinab decided she must defend her brother. The family posted three short films about him on YouTube.

“There was so much talk, so many accusations I thought we should tell the world what he was like. We wanted to show he was no crackpot. He was a normal family man, normal father, grandfather, pilot, and instructor.”

She also dismissed claims that Zaharie and his wife Faiza Khanum had severe marital problems, and may have been in the process of divorcing.

“They had 30 years and three children and they are still together. I would not deny that off and on they had problems. But not to the point that would cause him to want to commit this crime.”

She also said there were no financial problems in the family and that, although a supporter of jailed Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, his support of Anwar’s party was a “momentary fancy.”

While she still doesn’t know what’s happened to her brother, Sakinab says she has accepted that the plane must have crashed and she and her family have said their goodbyes to the boy they once called Ari.

“But he’s always here. I speak about him in present tenses. It’s so surreal that he’s gone.”

“And so hard.”


Open Letters To Najib’s Fellow-Travellers Abroad…

Sarawak Report


Over the past year and more Sarawak Report has notified a number of lofty organisations and individuals, who have been happy to bask in handouts, donations and business opportunities from Najib and Jho Low, over the grave concerns relating to 1MDB and other kleptocratic activities.

Generally, we have received what is known in local lingo as the ‘bum’s rush’ by these superior persons, who have either ignored us or sent us pompous and dismissive replies.  In the light of the DOJ’s confirmation of all our concerns at last, we are writing them open letters again.

1) To the Headmaster and Board of Governors of Malvern College:

Dear Anthony Clark and Lord MacLaurin,
We wrote to your college last year to ask who had donated the substantial sum to your school for the New ‘Razak’ Science Centre (featured above), recently opened in honour of Malaysia’s Prime Minister, who was present.

We expressed our concern that the payment might well have come from Malaysia’s stolen public money, in the light of the growing 1MDB scandal and Razak’s lack of any legitimate personal fortune – and that it was likely to have been funnelled through off-shore companies by an individual such as Jho Low.

In reply you assured us that your donor was not Jho Low, but that they were to remain anonymous:

“I can confirm that no donation was received from Najib Razak or Taek Jho Low.
Our new Science Centre was enabled through the support of 40 plus College benefactors including four who expressed a wish to remain anonymous.  Central to this was a gift from a donor, made in honour of Najib Razak, Prime Minister of Malaysia.  The Prime Minister and his brother Johari, both Old Malvernians visited the College earlier this year to attend the opening of our new facilities.”(response from Malvern College official)

Given last week’s shocking indictment by the US Department of Justice’s Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative against 1MDB and by implication its boss, who was described as ‘Malaysian Official 1′ (Najib Razak), we ask if the Governors now might care to reconsider their secretive approach to such a very substantial donation?

We ourselves will, of course, be notifying Britain’s National Crime Agency and the DOJ about what we fear was very possibly a gift from misappropriated public funds from Malaysia. It is unfortunate that you were not able to clear up the matter by being more transparent about large donations made to the school and hope that your due diligence was sufficiently thorough to prevent any major embarrassment ensuing.

2) Vice-Chancellor Nottingham University:


Najib Razak

Dear David Greenaway,
Last year several Malaysian students at your university (which also has a campus in KL) raised a petition against the over 6 foot high portrait of your former student Najib Razak, which hangs prominently on the Kings Meadow Campus.  The petition was rejected.

We would like to ask who paid for the painting and whether you still consider the man now held responsible for the world’s greatest recorded act of kleptocracy to be one of the University’s distinguished alumni to be honoured in such a fashion?

3) President & CEO UN Foundation:

Dear Kathy Calvin,
We have emailed the UN Foundation on a number of occasions over the past several months and written articles (copied to you) expressing our concern at the willingness of the Foundation to accept large sums of money from the ‘billionaire’ Jho Low.

Despite our concerns and the copious evidence we provided from our investigations that he was a fraud and a front for a massive act of kleptocracy against the Malaysian people, you rejected our concerns and as late as last year the UN Foundation was participating in a joint fund-raiser hosted by Jho Low on ‘his’ yacht, moored off Busan.

Funded by Jho Low's Jynwell Foundation - Global Daily - the UN Foundation's news outlet

We ask who paid for UN Foundation personnel to attend that fundraiser and indeed whether the UN Foundation will now publish exactly how much it has received in cash and expenses through Jho Low?  We hope you will assure us soonest that all this money will be returned via the DOJ to the Malaysian people.

You furthermore told us that the money you took from Jho Low would be to help train journalists and bring news via your Global Daily!

The recently announced partnership with the Jynwel Foundation will help the UN Foundation contribute to what has been called “the biggest communications challenge and opportunity of our generation” .. With the support of the Jynwel Foundation and other partners, the UN Foundation will be able to encourage a global discussion around the goals through increased level of media reporting, capacity building and training for journalists, media organizations, and spokespeople

Sarawak Report says that so far there is no evidence that the Global Daily are equipped to teach other journalists their jobs. While we were correctly exposing Jho Low for corruption, Global Daily was running puff pieces about his “philanthropy”.

4) The Chairman of MasterCard Global

Dear Rick Haythornethwaite,
You were ever so pompous and dismissive, referring to Sarawak Report’s “questionable activities” when we wrote to express our concerns about the PetroSaudi group, where you hold posts as Chief Operating Officer and President.

“even if I were to be in possession of information relevant to your query, I would be unwilling to assist you in your questionable activities” [Looks like Haythornthwaite knew more than he was telling!]


Rick Haythornethwaite

You were concerned that we got your title a bit wrong, but not apparently that billions may have been misappropriated using PetroSaudi. You accused us of being “activists”, which is not a crime like money-laundering is.

Perhaps, now that your company has been named and well and truly shamed by the the US Department of Justice, you might like to do as we suggested and investigate what on earth has been going on and where the money for your handsome remunerations may have originated?

We hope you hang on to that MasterCard job and indeed the Chairmanship post at Centrica Gas.

5) British Malaysian Chamber of Commerce:

Dear Lord Marland,
We wrote earlier this year deploring your sneaky welcome to Najib Razak in London, whilst the Cameron Government was pretending to steer clear.  Your comment to questioning journalists, who by then were all hot on the case of 1MDB, was that one should never judge a chap until ‘proven guilty’ (in Najib’s case that would have to be by his own appointed judges in his no longer independent courts).

Do you want to tell the same to US Attorney General Loretta Lynch, now that she has pointed out in stunning detail exactly why Malaysian Official 1 is guilty of enormous kleptocracy?

6) CitiBank’s Head of Commodities:

Dear Ed Morse,


Edward Morse – Big laugh

Your ‘expert valuation’ of the company PetroSaudi cost a hundred thousand dollars, straight into your account, but wasn’t worth the paper it was written on.

Not bad for less than a day’s work: a quick re-jig of material that the company itself had sent you in order to provide the exact valuation that they had told you by email they needed for their fraudulent purposes (after all Director Patrick Mahony was an old pal, no reason for him to be misleading).

Great how you can use an impressive CV to coin in easy money.  But, in future that CV may provide less of a glorious track record perhaps?

7) Management and Board of ANZ Bank

Dear Graham Hodges,
In the light of the information which we now have from the US Attorney General about the origin of around a billion dollars that were transferred from 1MDB into your top account at KL’s AmBank, belonging to the Prime Minister, do you still stand by your remarks below on behalf of the bank to the Australian Senate earlier this year?

“Under questioning by senators, Mr Hodges described as “simplistic” allegations that ANZ had governance questions to answer over the 1MDB scandal.

“Clearly the directors on that board are not at liberty to talk about what goes on … we do not control that bank. We are directors on that bank, it is a separately listed public company,” Mr Hodges told the committee.

“As an ANZ executive and one which is a shareholder in that are we happy with that? Certainly not. But that’s different to implying that the culture or the integrity of one of the people who sat on the board is less than it should be because they’ve sat on the board.”

The fact of the matter is that ANZ personnel dominated the top executive positions at AmBank and dominate the Board. This was supposed to be the badge of credibility behind the bank.  We suggest that you as Deputy Chief Executive and your management approach the Board and reconsider your positions on this matter, before someone does it for you.

8) Hollywood’s Glitteratti:

Dear Leo, Alicia and all the Fun Party Team,
We have been warning you for months and months that your favourite party host, charity auction donator, gambling chip provider, Vegas bubbly buyer, yacht and jet supplier was a fake.


Will you give 1MDB’s money back Leo?

You definitely weren’t interested in listening or maybe the party music was just too loud?


Audiences will be fascinated to see Leo acting as the great founder of the American nation, George Washington in Red Granite’s up-coming block-buster. And they will be wondering where the money came from?

Meanwhile, will Leo be returning his fee for Wolf of Wall Street, which we and many others had warned was paid from stolen money from Malaysia’s development fund?

We will continue our letter-writting at less busy time.

Yours sincerly

Ready to riot for Najib

Ready to riot for Najib

Najib has not hesitated to get his paid-up bullies in Red Shirts onto the streets to threaten ordinary folk, following the DOJ’s devastating details over his thefts from 1MDB.


But it’s next week that he plans to really take charge.

On 1st August his shocking National Security Act comes into force, designed to hand him dictatorial powers wherever he likes, against whom he likes for any six months at a time. Then he can renew those powers.

The bill was introduced without warning late on the final day of the Parliamentary session at the end of last year. Surprised MPs were given no time to scrutinise it, let alone put forward amendments and the debate was cursory as it was rushed through its stages in an effective pre-planned coup by the Prime Minister against his Parliament and the democratic rights of his own people.

Even the Sultans and the Agong have been shocked into a rare refusal to sign it unamended – but rather than accept their counsel on a matter of core national security he has brushed their concerns aside and forced it into law unchanged or re-considered.

That Najib’s excuse was the need to combat ISIS is no surprise.  Yet the terms of this Act would lead anyone to conclude that Malaysia has experienced worse threats than Europe, Indonesia and the US put together, which of course is not true.

None of those countries have attempted to create such sweeping powers to combat terrorists – the reason being that this law has nothing to do with fighting criminals… and everything to do with protecting the one who is presently in charge.

Is Najib Razak a safe pair of hands for such powers?

Is Najib Razak a safe pair of hands for such powers?

To give just a single example of the evil intent of this National Security Act, consider the clause that cancels the formal inquest into the death of anyone killed by army or police in any crackdown under its provisions.

Someone must have thought closely to insert such a sinister detail in advance.  That someone must have decided that they are tired of being inconvenienced by all the paraphernalia of the law when it comes to murder cases. That person wants to be freed from questioning and investigation, when someone who gets in his way is ordered dead.

Does Malaysia want to place such a dangerous law in the hands of a desperate thief and liar like Najib, who is furthermore himself personally associated with a string of murky, half-solved murders?

And yet, the mainstream press in Malaysia has been almost as silent on this deadly law, as over the shocking revelations by America’s Department of Justice about their Prime Minister’s thefts from 1MDB.  The story which has been headlines for the past two days in every other country in the world has remained virtually unreported where it is most relevant – Malaysia.

Core messages the Malaysian media are avoiding!

Core messages the Malaysian media are avoiding!

What press coverage there has been has even attempted to pretend that the description of Najib as ‘Malaysian Official 1′ means that he has somehow not been identified in the US indictment.  Do they think Malaysian’s are laughably stupid?

For the avoidance of doubt the PM is plainly and clearly identified in the United States Department of Justice indictment as the corrupt official who received $681 million in his private bank account direct from 1MDB (no Saudi Royals in sight).

The rest of the world media has had zero problem in making the connection, as evinced by the headline at the top of this article.  It is merely that legal documents only cite by name those who are directly moved against in that indictment – since Najib placed the US-based loot in the name of his step-son Riza and Jho Low (both now hiding in Malaysia and Taiwan) he was not directly relevant to that indictment.

However, his proven duplicity and shocking level of corruption is supremely relevant to people in Malaysia.

Malaysian media have tried to pretend otherwise

Malaysian media have tried to pretend otherwise


There is an over-used analogy, which explains a dangerous torpor, which could finally lose Malaysians their last vestiges of freedom, promising poverty and misery for their country.

A frog will jump out if you put it into hot water, but if you start from cold and heat it up, it stays and cooks.

After years of incremental abuses and ever-worsening corrupted practice, it seems Malaysians no longer understand a tipping-point or see the moment to act.

Revelations that mobilised Icelanders and even people in Brazil to successfully voice their outrage and to pressure the departure of discredited leaders, seem in danger of falling on deaf ears amongst self-defeatist Malaysians, who have perhaps bubbled in the pot too long?

It seems too many prefer to explain why ‘nothing can be done’, rather than take a risk and do it. This paralysis is worst amongst those with the most responsibility to take action now – those around Najib. Their failure to do the necessary is forcing others – ordinary people – to have to do their job of replacing a leader who has lost the plot.

Here we have one of the remaining countries in the world where sodomy remains a crime and was even used to place a popular opposition leader in jail on cooked-up charges. Yet, the population is being asked to nonetheless bend over and be thus abused.

How will once proud Malaysians be able to look other nations in the face if they let it happen and surrender up their freedoms to a thief, who has been exposed and discredited the world over for buying power with money stolen from the poor?
