Kata Dua Kepada Melayu Penang

Orang Melayu di Pulau Pinang diberi amaran kata dua 'you keluar dari sini, kalau tak puas hati jumpa di mahkamah nanti' . Bunyinya macam israel menghalau palestin kan? Jika benar kata beliau ini... maknanya orang melayu yang duduk penang itu tidak sah, sebab duduk di tanah orang lain. Perlu diingat ialah DS Anwar Ibrahim bekas TPM dan Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badwi bekas PM adalah orang sana.

Keadaan Orang Melayu Pulau Pinang Kini Kritikal, Kata Wakil UMNO Negeri

KUALA LUMPUR, 22 Okt (Bernama) -- Keadaan orang Melayu di Pulau Pinang sangat kritikal terutama dalam isu pemilikan tanah dan ketika ini kira-kira 7,000 penduduk negeri berhadapan dengan risiko diusir dari rumah yang mereka duduki, demikian menurut wakil UMNO Pulau Pinang Mohamad Farid Saad.

Beliau yang mendedahkan hasil maklum balas kajian Badan Perhubungan UMNO Pulau Pinang yang dikumpul dari 13 ketua bahagian berkata, penduduk dari 60 perkampungan di Pulau Pinang didapati akan kehilangan tempat tinggal kerana tanah rumah yang didiami sekarang bukan milik mereka.

Katanya kerajaan Pulau Pinang di bawah pimpinan DAP dilihat semakin melampau apabila mereka mula membuka tanah yang selama ini dipertahan, untuk dibangunkan, dan beliau memberi contoh satu lot tanah yang di Sungai Burung yang dikhaskan untuk sawah dikeluarkan dari gazet, dan satu lagi kes yang membabitkan sebahagian daripada Taman Negeri yang dibuka untuk dibangunkan sebagai kawasan perumahan.

"Kes ini akan membuka laluan kepada pembukaan kawasan-kawasan lain dari kategori yang sama. Ini semua adalah penyalahgunaan kuasa yang mesti dihentikan," kata Anggota UMNO Bahagian Balik Pulau itu ketika membahaskan usul ucapan presiden di Perhimpunan Agung UMNO pada Jumaat.

Mohamad Farid berkata apa yang berlaku di Pulau Pinang sekarang merupakan contoh kes pengusiran melalui polisi dasar, selain berlakunya pengusiran secara fizikal, psikologi dan terang-terangan.

Mohamad Farid berkata kerajaan perlu mempunyai kuasa untuk menghalang pembangunan di kawasan yang digazet, seperti kawasan-kawasan yang sensitif dalam menjaga alam sekitar di semua negeri.

"Jika tidak, lebih cepatlah orang Melayu diusir. Hari ini tanah milik orang Melayu di daerah timur laut hanyalah 1.16 peratus saja, tanah di Balik Pulau hanya 15.07 peratus, di Seberang Perai 44.2 peratus, Seberang Perai Tengah 23.5 peratus dan di Seberang Perai Selatan 18.09 peratus sahaja milik orang Melayu," katanya dan menambah ketika ini hanya 20.41 peratus sahaja tanah di Pulau Pinang dan Seberang Perai adalah milik orang Melayu.

Beliau berkata orang Melayu sudah lama bertapak di Pulau Pinang, tetapi hari ini, sedikit demi sedikit tanah yang dimiliki turun temurun dijual dan bertukar tangan.

Menurutnya jika generasi dahulu boleh bertolak ansur, generasi baru tidak ada lagi belas kasihan, di mana yang ada kini hanyalah 'you keluar dari sini, kalau tak puas hati jumpa di mahkamah nanti'.

Mohamad Farid berkata hakikat yang perlu diterima ialah keadaan ini berpunca daripada kealpaan "pemimpin dahulu".

Umno AGM: New basis for race relations, says Najib

Malaysia needs a new basis for race relation based on a shared future, historical facts and today’s reality, said Umno president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in his presidential address at Umno’s 61st general assembly. At the same time, he said, Malaysians needed to remind themselves that the country's success was made possible through the contribution of ideas and sacrifices by various races

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia needs a new basis for race relations based on a shared future, historical facts and today’s reality, said Umno president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

At the same time, he said, the new foundation must not cast aside today’s political and economic realities and future potential.

“We don’t live in utopia. We cannot run from the reality of today’s world. Ours is a country that holds fast to the constitution and the rule of law as stated in the Rukun Negara.

“The status of the Malays and Bumiputera and the rights of other races are stated clearly in the Federal Constitution.

“Thus, be wary of those dream merchants who are spinning myths, untruths and propagating racial hatred and trading on slander,” he said in his presidential address at the Umno’s 61st general assembly Thursday.

Najib, who is also Prime Minister, said the Malays were hurt when the social contract agreed upon by the forefathers of various races who had agreed to make sacrifices to gain the independence, was now being questioned.

At the same time, he said, Malaysians needed to remind themselves that the country's success was made possible through the contribution of ideas and sacrifices by various races

“The fact is, it is not due to the exclusive contribution of one race, but it is the fruits of collective labour of all races,” he said.

He said the problem started when some individuals trivialised history or when there were irresponsible people who tried to interpret history according to their narrow agenda or political interest.

Najib also said that instead of obsessing over rights, Malays of the 21st century needed to prepare themselves to make full use of their existing benefits.

“What is the use the of quotas, reserves and permits if it is wasted. What good is opportunity if it is pawned for the sake of short-term benefit,” he questioned.

Subsequently, he said Malays needed to build ability and capacity and not just “beat their chests” that they should succeed because it was their right to do so.

“Malays of this century need to face reality to succeed. We need to become glokal Malays,” he added.

He added Malays should be able to compete with the best and strongest.

“I, as Umno president do not want to accept the excuse that young Malays are still weak because of five centuries of colonisation,” he said.

He added that the battle today was one of mind and skill where whoever was knowledgable “owned the environment”.

He also said Umno would never allow Malays to be displaced in their own country.

He said the party was committed to do not only what was best but also what was right for the race.

“We cannot afford to wallow in our past glories. The fact is, we are facing challenges not only from the outside but also from those who seem to be willing to put everything at stake for the sake of power,” he said.

“Umno members cannot lose hope or be worried. Even Islam teaches us not to give up hope and as party members, we cannot afford to be continuously disappointed over losses and neither should we easily allow Umno to be destroyed.”

The party president said Umno need to go through three phases of “recovery” to enable the party to continue building the future and play its part to empower the race.

“The first and most important phase is to admit and acknowledge our problems and weaknesses. Secondly, we have to reflect and find the right and effective remedies to improve our shortcomings.

“Thirdly, we need to start working. What is important is that we go through these three phases in an orderly manner. If not, whatever plans for change and renewal will not succeed,” he said

Half a million to lose jobs due to cuts


The coalition's austerity drive will get under way in earnest later when the Chancellor unveils some of the biggest spending cuts ever attempted in the Western world.
Have your say Financial Crisis

George Osborne is expected to warn of a "hard road" ahead as he details £83 billion of reductions to tackle the deficit, which will see nearly 500,000 public sector jobs culled over the next four years.

But economic forecasters have dealt an early blow to the Government's spending cuts as they warned the measures would not shrink the deficit as quickly as expected.

The National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR) said lower growth would lead to less taxes, which would hold back efforts to rein in Britain's ballooning debt.

NIESR predicted the fiscal deficit will fall to 3.6 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP) in 2014/15 rather than the 2.1 per cent forecasted by the independent Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR).

It said the main reason was that growth would be slower than the OBR assumed, reducing the tax base.

In its latest forecasts for the UK economy, it also said the Government may struggle to go through with the cuts at the pace and scale implied in its emergency Budget.

It said if this were the case, the Government should meet the shortfall by raising direct taxes.
"If the cuts were half the size and direct taxes were raised to fill the gap, then output growth would be 0.25 per cent higher in 2011 and 2012," said NIESR.

The group has revised down its growth forecasts for 2011 and 2012 in the face of the Government spending review.

It believes the UK will see GDP of 1.6 per cent in each year, down from original predictions for 1.7 per cent in 2011 and 1.8 per cent in 2012.

The group said there remained a one in five chance that output would fall in 2011 as a whole
