The Pot Calling The Kettle Black. They condemned Umno and its leaders for promoting money politics but that peccadillo has now reared its ugly head in PAS.
For umpteenth years PAS leaders has accused UMNO for blemishing the party with money politics and even speculated that UMNO is doomed to extinct after the next General Election.
The same leaders who damned UMNO are now astounded over the same problem in their party although some of them are denying or claiming to be unaware of it.
PAS Ulamak Council chief Datuk Mohamad Daud Iraqi has admitted that he is worried that money politics has begun to inlay in the party which claims to be upholding Islamic principles and values.
PAS will be holding its general assembly and election next month in Shah Alam where delegates will pick their new leaders to head the Islamic party for the next three years.
Mohamad Daud even confirmed that that a candidate eyeing for position in the assembly had offered material gratification to get support.
The case highlighted by Mohamad Daud is only a tip of the iceberg. I believe there are many other cases involving money to get support which had gone unreported.
They are only human beings and of course, they will just do anything to be at the top.
In fact, the issue whether the ulamaks or professionals should lead PAS is another example that power struggle is imminent in the assembly.
Are they really Islamic in that sense (gratification and power struggle) and practicing the Al-Quran and Sunnah as was being practiced by Prophet Muhammad.
I think there is not much difference between PAS, DAP and PKR. The only noticeable difference is that most PAS leaders have beard and are wearing turbans or skullcaps while those in DAP and PKR are masked to fool the people.

PAK LAH was heartbroken and he was a picture of gloom, sadness, depress and demoralize shortly after he was informed that five states fell to Pakatan-Rakyat in last year’s March 8 general election.
He was adamant and unbending in his decision to resign as Prime Minister to take full responsibility following the defeat. No amount of cajole, persuasion and sweet-talk could change his mind at that time.
However, he was smiling from ear-to-ear as if he had just heard the voices of God for him to carry on as PM immediately after he was met and coxed by his long time buddy, Tun Musa Hitam.
Musa Black gave Pak Lah, who was on life support system, an antidote for Pak Lah to make an about U-turn and withdrew from his earlier decision to resign as PM.
It took Musa just 45 minutes to convince Pak Lah to remain as PM and continue with his policies to destroy the country, its economy, Barisan Nasional and Umno.
And the next day, Pak Lah who was brimming with confidence told a packed Press conference that Barisan won with a big majority (was he stupid or plain ignorant) and received the people’s mandate to lead the country once again.
And true enough, the “father, son and son-in-law” team with the help of their spin doctors on Level 4 and in New Straits Times namely Kali “The Goddess” Mullah and Brendan Pereira, continued to wreaked havoc in the country, plundering and stashing the nation’s wealth.
A friend working with Tan Sri Nor Yakcop at a function somewhere early this year introduced me to Brendan. He asked me if I knew him and I replied no with Brendan’s presence. Brendan must have felt humiliated but I was being honest, as I have never met him before.
That Indian bloke, hated very much by Tun M, immediately left when I told my friend that I did not know who he was.
The common complaints during Pak Lah’s reign were that the Badawi boys were not only monopolizing major projects but they did not even bother to distribute the crumbs.
Musa was also trying his luck to enrich himself using his position as the Sime Darby chairman to influence Pak Lah to agree on proposals to privatise the National Heart Institute and build a new LCCT in Labu, Negeri Sembilan, which were outright rejected by Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
It was Musa last attempt to maneuver the Government through Pak Lah.
Now that the malignant tumor has been removed and hopefully the country, Barisan and Umno will be cured by Najib.
However, Najib’s task is far from over as he has to take head-on with Umno warlords at division level who are using their positions to pressure Najib to fulfill their demands and evil lust.
Let us rally and support Najib to remove these diseases which are hindering every effort by Najib to build 1Malaysia and put our beloved country back on track, economically, internationally and reverentially.

The just-concluded tri-elections in Bukit Gantang, Bukit Selambau and Batang Ai has one message for Barisan Nasional, the Government, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his team – you have to work doubly hard from now.
And it has to be espoused, practiced and translated into the language spoken by the ordinary rakyat or failure is doomed for them.
As expected, we did not hear any complaints, condemnation or denunciation from the Opposition parties over the results of the tri-elections.
They are very happy and pleased with the results as they won in two of the three by-elections. They would have sung a different song had Barisan won in all the by-elections. Well, that is the mentality of the Opposition. We cannot blame them as they will just oppose anything the government does, even though deep inside them they know it is something good but they will oppose just for the sake of opposing.
An enormous task awaits Najib ahead as his words are just not enough to re-convince the people. They have yet to see if those words are really put into practice and actions.
Tomorrow, Najib will announce his new Cabinet line-up. The rakyat will once again put Najib on “trial” to see if he walks his talks.
Some of the big names in Umno that are likely to be excluded from the line up include Second Finance Minister Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop, Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar, Works Minister Datuk Mohd Zin Mohamed, Rural and Regional Development Minister Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib, Information Minister Datuk Shabery Chik and Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Azalina Othman.
Minister in Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Nazri Tan Sri Aziz may also be dropped despite his good showing in Parliament as he does not hold any important position in Umno now.
Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Khaled Nordin maybe moved to Johor as the new Mentri Besar replacing Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman who lost his supreme council seat in the last Umno general election.
Whoever Najib appoints, what matters most now is the people as they are the ones who will determine the future of this country and who should lead them.
“Today, I ask you to join me in this task of renewing Malaysia. I urge you to rise to the challenge of building a 1Malaysia. People First. Performance Now,” Najib said in his first public address as the Prime Minister.
But let’s remember that Najib cannot do it alone without our support. As much as we want Najib to walk his talk, we must also play our role to help him.
We must also walk our talk if we wish to see a prosperous and peaceful Malaysia in our quest to build 1Malaysia.
