Calm before the storm


When Najib took over the Premiership, many MPs died in office.  Then Najib and Rosmah began their plundering. Follow by Perkasa and the Malay protests against other races to safe guard the so-called Malay rights.  Then we have the students blood shed on New Year Day 2012.  Follow by the bum show.

2013 will be no different from 2012 except that the period of hatred will be shorter.  Najib and Rosmah have already gone into Plan C knowing that the end is near. Najib and Rosmah are definitely OUT whether BN win or lose.  There is no more path for them to ride on.  Najib's jinx will continue to follow him by ending his Premiership with many death.

Malaysians like you and me have to accept the many changes that will be upon us when Mahathir wave his wand.  With RM2 billion of his own money plus another RM5 billion donation from businessmen, syndicates and Saudi, Mahathir is out for our blood.  The Christians will be Mahathir's first target, follow by DAP and PAS. So expect happenings in places of worship.

According to source the Perkasa gang will be creating trouble at the Chinese Assemby against DAP launch on their 'Ubah Rocket Style' on the 1st January 2013 at 8pm.  So come prepare for some blood shed.

Have a good rest today and enjoy this video before the storm take over our lives.

Once in a lifetime chance


In life to succeed one must have a dream.
To complete a dream one needs a 'Once in a lifetime chance.'
And that is very hard to come by today.
But one should never, never give up.
The fame Bi Rain, Psy and Caine are good examples.

Sybil Kathigasu


We must accept the changes


For the next 7 days we will not be given a chance to reject but to accept whatever happens.  To each and everyone whether we believe in this or that God or no God we must accept whatever we see or hear.
The missing sound of the birds and bees and the sun (also BN especially UMNO leaders) are the first indication of what to expect. 
Under the same sky, we cannot run away or hid from the unexpected coming.
There will be changes that must be embrace by all.

Gravity Light


A British company hopes to bring electric light to 1.5billion people who live off the grid with an incredible electric light that is powered by gravity.
The GravityLight uses a sack of sand to gradually pull a piece of rope through a dynamo mechanism which generates electricity to power an LED light.
A three-second pull on the rope to raise the sack will keep the LED bulb running for up to 30 minutes, its makers claim.
The light, named GravityLight,works by suspending a bag filled with a heavy substance like rocks, dirt or sand from the light.

London-based designers Martin Riddiford and Jim Reeves of Therefore.com spent four years developing the light.

London-based design and innovation initiative deciwatt.org designed the GravityLight as a sustainable lighting solution for the 1.5billion people in the world who have no reliable access to electricity.
Most of these people rely on biomass fuels like kerosene for lighting once the Sun goes down, but such fuels can be hazardous to health - as well as posing a fire risk.
 
Deciwatt.org, a division within design company Therefore, which came up with the casing for the Psion range of handheld computers, say the trend for rapid advances in technology has made their product possible.

Their website cites Koomey's law, a lesser-known parallel to Moore's law, which describes how the number of computations possible per joule of energy has doubled roughly every year and a half since the Fifties.
The flip side of this is that relatively simple devices progressively need less energy to run, making possible a whole range of relatively simple gadgets that can be powered by unconventional means.
The GravityLight was co-invented by Martin Riddiford, who designed the Psion hardware, and Jim Reeves, both directors at London-based Therefore.
'We've done a number of projects, including the Psion products - where the requirements were incredibly efficient in terms of power usage,' Mr Riddiford told The Register.
'The digital age has made products much power hungry but now there’s a reversal of that – everyone’s chasing lower power again.'
Deciwatt.org appealed for backing from crowd funding website indiegogo.com, and have already more than tripled their goal.
With the $55,000 initially requested they had promised to fund the manufacture of 1,000 gravity-powered lights for free distribution to impoverished communities in Africa and India.
They have since been promised $183,407, with nearly a month left of their appeal.
Kerosene is responsible for thousands of deaths across the developing world every year, deciwatt.org says on the GravityLamp indiegogo page - and it can be expensive.
Sand not included: The GravityLight comes as an easy to assemble kit. Its makers say they hope to use backing from crowd funding to distribute 1,000 to impoverished communities in Africa and India

'The World Bank estimates that, as a result, 780 million women and children inhale smoke which is equivalent to smoking 2 packets of cigarettes every day,' the page says.
'Sixty per cent of adult, female lung-cancer victims in developing nations are non-smokers.
'The fumes also cause eye infections and cataracts, but burning kerosene is also more immediately dangerous: 2.5 million people a year, in India alone, suffer severe burns from overturned kerosene lamps.
'Burning Kerosene also comes with a financial burden: kerosene for lighting ALONE can consume 10 to 20% of a household's income.
'This burden traps people in a permanent state of subsistence living, buying cupfuls of fuel for their daily needs, as and when they can.'

Deciwatt.org explains how solar-powered lighting, often offered as an answer to these problems, is not yet an economical prospect for many poor communities.
Solar panels are expensive and only produce electricity when the Sun shines, and when there is no sunlight the energy must be stored in expensive batteries.
'Very often, when buying a low cost solar lamp with an inbuilt rechargeable battery, a full third of what you're paying for is the battery, and you will need to replace it every few years. Assuming you can get a new battery,' the company says.
The team is now investigating using the GravityLight technology to power other devices or even mobiles.
'The ultimate goal for our longer term research is to establish if/how small amounts of constant power can be utilised to provide access to the internet, from very remote locations, at incredibly low cost,' they say.


Anorexic

This is the desperately sad story of the thinnest woman in the world who weighs just four stone after years of extreme dieting.
But rather than feel sorry for herself, Valeria Levitin says her emaciated figure should be a severe wake-up call for girls wanting matchstick-thin figures.
At 5ft 8in, she should weigh between 9st and 12st, according to NHS advice. Instead, she is a tiny 4st 3lbs, less than half of what her lightest healthy weight should be.

Valeria aged 19, on holiday in Mexico. She developed the eating disorder as a teenager and has now chosen to speak out about how the illness has ruined her life
What is most worrying is that Valeria, originally from Russia but who now lives in Monaco, says she gets fan mail from girls desperate to copy her skeletal look.
The 39-year-old told The Sun: ‘I have received emails from young girls who want me to teach them how to be like me.
‘All the letters I’ve had are from women, mainly in their twenties, who see me as some kind of inspiration.’
As a result, she has taken the brave step to speak out about her condition and campaign against anorexia – and says she refuses to teach young girls how to die.
She says she wants to share her story to prevent other people falling victim to the same fate, saying anorexia has made her 'lonely, unattractive and repulsive for the people around me'

ONE EXAMPLE OF HER 'FAN MAIL'

Hello dear Valeria,
I am 23 and weigh 8½st and I do not like myself this way. I want to look skinny like Thumbelina. Nobody can persuade me not to diet, even though I acquired gastritis and pancreatitis.
I have tried all kinds of diets but they all yielded only temporary results. On my present diet I do not feel hungry... I cannot return to my old way of eating because I fear I will gain weight.
All my relatives are telling me it will hurt me, that I will be a victim of anorexia. I am a little worried that one day I will be faced with a problem of critically low weight and I want to know when to get worried. When did it happen to you?
Valeria was weighed often to ensure she hadn’t gained any weight, such was her mother’s drive for perfection.
At 16, and weighing 10st, Valeria moved to Chicago with her parents. Desperate to fit in at a new school, she thought that if she lost weight, she would be accepted and liked.
As a result, she restricted her diet even further, cutting out sugar or carbohydrates. 
The irony today is that, having cut out certain foods for so long, her body is intolerant to them and could not process them even if she wanted to.
When a classmate made a cruel comment about Valeria’s figure, she became even more determined to lose weight. 
She said: 'We were playing football and during the game a man said, "I know how we can win. We need to put Valeria’s big ar*e in the goal”. It shattered my whole world.'
By the time she was 23, Valeria’s dress size had plummeted from a healthy size 12 to a tiny size six.
Deciding to become a model made the situation even worse, as she was told she was still too fat to succeed. As her weight continued to plummet, by the age of 24 and weighing just six stone, she was banned from dancing over concerns she would injure herself.
Many foods have to be avoided because they don¿t agree with her body any more
It has been so long since she ate bread that she can no longer remember what it tastes like
It has been so long since Valeria ate bread that she can no longer remember what it tastes like
For the next ten years she saw more than 30 health specialists, though once dipped to a dangerously low 3st 10lbs. Today, even if she wanted to eat certain foods, she would be unable to.
Many foods have to be avoided because they don’t agree with her body any more. It has been so long since she ate bread that she can no longer remember what it tastes like. 
Her illness has also made her life a very lonely one. Single for a decade, she says relationships are difficult as she is unable to do the normal things that couples do, as going to restaurants.
Now, she believes she cannot be cured simply by going to a doctor, having never gained weight after seeing a specialist.
Aged 23, she decided to become a model, but suffered further set-backs after being told she was too big

Rather, she says the problem is more about a 'lack of harmony between body and soul'.
Today Valeria takes supplements to counter the risk of bruising and avoids situations where she could fall. 
And she believes the solution could lie in moving back to Moscow - where she feels more at ease with herself - and trying to fulfill her lifelong dream of becoming a mother via a surrogate.
For the incentive of wanting a child could be a trigger to get healthy again, she says.  It is something she feels she can do if she can get herself healthy.
Now 39, Valeria says she is desperate to get better and fulfill her dream of becoming a mother
She also wants to serve as a warning to others about the dangers of extreme dieting

She said: 'I would love to have a family because I feel I have so much to give. But obviously it wouldn’t be right to have a baby when I am ill. It wouldn’t be fair on the child. 
'I want to stand up to anorexia. I’ve never given up on anything in my life and I’m not about to give up now.'
Valeria would like people suffering from eating disorders like hers to get help. You can find support by going to b-eat.co.uk

For all the Ladies out there

You think you've picked out the perfect dress for the office Christmas party, but a quick glance over your shoulder into the mirror reveals the dreaded truth: back fat.
Unsightly bulging bra lines and 'armpit cleavage' have been revealed as one of the most common complaints among women.
So in response to this, Sainsbury's have created a special skin-smoothing bra to banish lumps and bumps on your back for good - and it costs just £10.
Before: A woman wearing a standard bra
After: A woman wearing Sainsbury's Back-Smoothing Bra
Before and after: Sainsbury's Back Smoothing Bra's straps are closer to the centre to avoid unsightly armpit cleavage, and the bra is free of elastic to ensure it doesn't dig into the skin and cause rolls
The appropriately named Back Smoothing Bra is made from Powermesh fabric, the same body-shaping fabric used in control lingerie, and features a wide back panel to compress any bulges and create a smooth, streamlined back that emphasises the waistline and hides the effects of festive overindulgence.
 
The model spent a year in development, and one of its key features is that the fastening has been positioned at the front, between the cups, to avoid visible bra lines.

DailyMail.

Mashitah Ibrahim, Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department can you explain what I have written in your reasoning?

Mashitah Ibrahim tells you that as a Muslim you must not believe Mayan Day, but his whole family has gone into hiding.

See this tunnel link which more than 20 Malaysian Muslim families have bought in recent times. These families have now gone underground in New Zealand, Britain, USA and Europe.  According to rumour Datuk Siti also bought one.

So did Rosmah buy one too?
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2249502/Mayan-Doomsday-prophecy-4-days-theres-rush-bomb-proof-survival-bunkers.html

I have marked yellow what Mashitah had said and given answers to them.

(On Islam) - CAIRO – As the world rattles with prophecies of the doomsday on Friday, December 21, based on the Mayan calendar, Malaysia has warned Muslims against following those beliefs, which contradict with the teachings of Islam.
"There is no reason for Muslims to believe in the Mayan prophecy,” Mashitah Ibrahim, Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, told The New Straits Times on Tuesday, December 18.
"It is haram (prohibited) for Muslims to believe in predictions."
Texts inscribed on stone tablets by the Maya civilization predict that the doomsday will occur on December 21, 2012.
The myth is based on the Mayan calendar which marks the end of a 5,126 year old cycle around December 12, 2012.
A chorus of books and movies has sought to link the Mayan calendar to rumors of impending disasters ranging from rogue black holes and solar storms to the idea that the Earth's magnetic field could flip on that date.
The disaster movie 2012, released last year, is based on the myth that the world will end with the Mayan calendar in 2012.
It sees a series of geological and astrological disasters plunging the world into chaos.
But archaeologists say there is no evidence the Maya ever made any such prophesy.
Mashitah warned that believing in such a prophecy could undermine one's faith.
"In Islam, it is an obligation for followers to believe in the end of the world, or qiamat, as it is referred to in the Qur’an,” she said.
"But the Qur’an and Prophet Muhammad never taught us to forecast the date.
“Even the Prophet was not told by God when qiamat would happen and he never tried to predict it.”

Judgment Day Signs
The Malaysian official stressed that Muslims are taught to identify signs of the Last Day to prepare themselves for the hereafter.
"The signs of qiamat and that it is nearing should be used by Muslims to strengthen their ibadah (worshipping) or good deeds,” Mashitah said.
"The Prophet, in his hadith had said as qiamat nears, Muslims should increase their ibadah (worshipping). It was not to instill fear in the people.
"The Prophet had said that even when signs of qiamat are right in front of us, we should make use of the time to do ibadah as it would be the last opportunity to do so."
Throughout the history of the world, each civilization has believed in a catastrophic event that would befall them.
In Islam, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) mentioned a few signs of the Last Day.
The signs include; barefooted shepherds will compete in owning tall buildings, wine (intoxicants) will be consumed in great quantities and that Arabia will become a land of gardens and rivers.

Saudi is ruled by the Anza Tribemen.  They were once nomad that raises animals.  In the old days they were called shepherds.  Today they compete with their neighbours to build the highest building in the world like this:


The Abraj Al-Bait Towers, also known as the Mecca Royal Hotel Clock Tower, is a building complex in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. These towers are a part of the King Abdulaziz Endowment Project that strives to modernize the holy city in catering to the pilgrims. The complex holds several world records, the tallest clock tower in the world, the world's largest clock face and the building with the world's largest floor area. The complex's hotel tower became the second tallest building in the world in 2012, surpassed only by Dubai's Burj Khalifa. The building complex is meters away from the world's largest mosque and Islam's most sacred site, the Masjid al Haram. The developer and contractor of the complex is the Saudi Binladin Group, the Kingdom's largest construction company.



Will the Middle East starve?

Fly over Saudi Arabia today and you will see that the desert sands are dotted with huge circles of green. They were not there 30 years ago. These geometric oases are man-made, the result of a $40 billion national effort to create giant farms in the desert to irrigate fields of wheat, fruit and fodder crops. Look down carefully, and you may also see giant sheds holding tens of thousands of cattle in the desert.
The Tabuk plain in the northwest of the country, close to Jordan, gets an average of just 2 inches of rain a year. Yet it is a prairie of wheat fields. Fortunes are being made here. The biggest farm — covering nearly 90,000 acres, or eight Manhattans — is run by the Tabuk Agricultural Development Company (TADCO). Its irrigation pumps extract up to a million acre-feet of water each year from beneath the sands.
TADCO is part of the vast business empire of the al-Rajhi brothers — Sulaiman, Saleh, Abdullah, and Mohammed. As the Economist put it, they have made “one fortune from money brokering and another from farming.” Each brother became a billionaire as they turned a small money-changing business servicing migrant workers in Saudi Arabia into the world’s largest Islamic bank, the Al-Rajhi Bank. Then they joined the country’s 1980s cropping boom which, for a while, made Saudi Arabia self-sufficient in wheat.






But Saudis don’t live by bread alone. Dairy farming is the other big domestic agricultural business. Raising cows in the desert seems even odder than growing wheat. But in the center of the country, near the capital, Riyadh, the late Prince Abdullah al-Faisal, eldest son of the former King Faisal, has established the world’s largest dairy farm. At the heart of the Al Safi farm are six giant sheds, where 30,000 Holstein cows from Europe produce around 42 million gallons of milk a year, sold under the Danone brand. To keep their udders productive, the cows are cooled by a constantly circulating mist of water. Surrounding the sheds are 7,400 acres of fields, where dozens of movable irrigation units called central pivots, each up to a third of a mile long, irrigate alfalfa, sorghum, and hay destined for the cows’ feedlots. This too takes prodigious amounts of water, pumped from more than a mile below the sand.

Not far away, Almarai, a food conglomerate also owned by the Saudi royal family, has five dairy farms with 36,000 cows. This giant was established in 1976 by racehorse-breeding Prince Sultan bin Mohammed bin Saud Al Kabeer and a colorful Irish dairy magnate, Alastair McGuckian.



Although Saudi Arabia has an extremely arid climate, a wide variety of natural wetland types are located within the Kingdom, and each major physiographic unit supports some permanent wetlands as well as a plethora of ephemeral types. In recent decades, many man-made wetlands have been created, and away from the coastal zones, these are often very significant features in the landscape. Eight wetland systems were identified in the Kingdom by Tinley (1994).
- Coastal systems: include coral islands, reefs, mud-, sand- and algal-flats, mangroves, lagoons and inlets, as well as perennial freshwater marshes and artesian springs.
- Dunefield systems: include relatively minor aquifer seeps on both Red Sea and Gulf coasts and a major wetland in the Rub 'al Khali.
- Sabkha systems: extensive sabkhas (erratically flooded salt-flats) are present on both Gulf and southern Red Sea plains; additionally, much of the terrain between the lower Gulf and the Rub 'al Khali is sabkha dominated; smaller sabkhas are also present in the northern harrats and in inland drainage basins on the central plateau.
- Karst systems: of very limited occurrence, although perhaps forming the only truly permanent lakes in central Arabia e.g. the aquifer-fed karst crater lakelets of the Al Aflaj/Layla district.
- Mountain systems: support a range of small wetlands e.g. ponded pockets, other pools and seeps, especially in granite mountains and inselbergs; various seeps and marshes in volcanic/harrat areas.
- Geothermal systems: very limited wetlands confined to the southern Tihamah e.g. Ain Wakrah springs at Malaki Dam.
- Wadi systems: abundant features of the Red Sea escarpment mountains, although only a relatively small proportion support perennially flowing rivers. They can flow either westwards towards, though rarely reaching, the Red Sea or eastwards i.e. inland.
- Man-made systems: include large open expanses of water (dams and reservoirs) and linear canal systems feeding irrigated farmland or outflows from sewage treatment plants (Riyadh and Makkah water courses) or industrial areas (Gulf area).
Both inshore and coastal waters and those surrounding offshore islands support major fisheries. Until recently, most fishing was done on a subsistence basis by local communities (hereafter referred to as the artisanal fishery), which is relatively sustainable. More recently, two commercial fisheries have appeared: the state-owned Saudi Fisheries Company (industrial fishing, often with large trawlers) and Investor Fisheries where "speculators" purchase small boats and man them with cheap Asian labour. In some coastal lagoons, fish (usually prawn) farms are beginning to develop. Other activities in coastal waters yielding economic returns are the remnant pearl-fishery in the Red Sea Farasan Islands and recreational diving, especially on reefs around coastal conurbations, e.g. Jeddah and Yanbu on the Red Sea and the Jubail/Damman/Dhahran area on the Gulf coast.
Small-scale natural wetlands have had a pivotal role in the subsistence economics of many inland areas; such oasis areas have a long history of date palm cultivation. Saudi Arabia has recently become one of the world's major wheat growing nations. However, the majority of irrigation water comes from boreholes, and the impact of over-abstraction on wetlands in the aquifer source areas has yet to be assessed. Dams and reservoirs, both large and small, are very important to the agricultural economics in mountainous areas with high precipitation, but in most cases such water storage and distribution schemes have simply replaced ingenious small-scale systems that local communities had developed over centuries in the wise use of meagre water supplies in their cultivations.
Saudi Arabian coastal wetlands support internationally important populations of breeding seabirds, wintering shorebirds, breeding turtles, dugongs, fish and a vast array of corals and other invertebrate taxa (Abuzinada & Krupp, 1994; Gladstone, 1994a). Floristically, they show less diversity, although the Red Sea coast supports extensive mangrove forests, seagrass beds and algal-flats. These communities are also present in the Gulf, but vast reclamation projects have destroyed over 40% of inter-tidal areas and intact areas are limited to the Gulf of Salwah in the south. Until recently, inland wetlands were not a major feature of the landscape, although perennial wadis inconspicuously support a surprisingly wide variety of endemic fish and amphibians. The major man-made wetlands (dams and wastewater rivers) have altered considerably the behaviour of many waterbird species formerly only known in the Kingdom as passage migrants. Nowadays, many more overwinter in the country, and in some cases conditions are suitable for some species to breed, well to the south of their normal Palearctic limits.


Other signs include increasing earthquakes and bloodshed, women far outnumbering men and power will be in the hands of those who do not deserve it.

There are a number of other signs too that come right before the end of time like sunrise from the West and the discovery of talking animals.

Allah Almighty has kept that date a secret. Not a human, angel, or prophet has ever been privy to that knowledge.
Anyone who promulgates this false message of 2012 as being the end of our world is committing a grave disservice to their own souls as well as the greater community around them.

Past sin has to be pay today.



 Tan Sri Haji Mohammad Noah bin Omar (1898–1991) was a Malaysian politician. He was one of the leading figures during the founding of the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) and became the first Speaker of the Dewan Rakyat.

Noah was very active in the Malayan nationalist movement along with his contemporaries, Onn Jaafar, Haji Anwar bin Abdul Malik and Haji Syed Alwi bin Syed Sheikh al-Hadi. Together they founded UMNO on 1 May 1946 as a means to rally the Malays against the Malayan Union, which was perceived as threatening Malay privileges and the position of the Malay rulers.
After independence, he became the first Speaker of the Dewan Rakyat, the lower house of Parliament between 1959 and 1964. Subsequently, he was President of the Dewan Negara, the upper house, from 1968 to 1970.

Noah together with Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong formed a private company called Genting Highlands Berhad, which was set up on 27 April 1965. Tan Sri Lim successfully obtained approval for the alienation of 12,000 acres (49 km2) and 2,800 acres (11 km2) of land from the Pahang and Selangor state governments respectively between the years 1965 and 1970. Genting Highlands is currently Malaysia's only casino and highland resort.
In 1970, Noah was appointed a director of MUI Group. He was appointed Chairman of the Group in 1980.

Noah married twice, firstly to Siti Aminah Kusuma and then to Maimun Abdul Manaf. His children from his first marriage are Rahah, the widow of Tun Abdul Razak, who was Prime Minister from 1970 to 1976, Suhaila, the widow of Tun Hussein Onn, who was Prime Minister from 1976 to 1981, and Fakhriah, who married Abdullah Ahmad, a member of the Johor royal court.[3] Noah and Siti Aminah had an elder child, Nabiha, who died at a young age.[1] His grandsons Najib Abdul Razak is now the Prime Minister, while Hishamuddin Hussein is the current Minister of Home Affairs.
His second wife Maimun bore him his only son, Abu Rais.

Wealthiest man in the world if UMNO win 13th GE

The mounting pressure from 18 days of historic protests finally drove Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak from office, after 30-years as his nation’s iron-fisted ruler. But the dictator should not shed a single drop of tear because the fortune he amassed is more than enough to finance his retirement comfortably. It would be nice and jaw-dropping if Forbes can compile the world’s richest dictators or politicians simply because it would put world’s richest man, Mexican Carlos Slim (worth about US$54 billion) and Bill Gates (net worth about US$53 billion) to shame.
Armed with suspended constitution for 30 years, Hosni Mubarak was in virtually every piece of business deal in the country thanks to guaranteed profit from monopolies, red-tape fees, bribery fees, nepotism and whatnot. The British Guardian newspaper estimated the wealth of Mubarak and his family at somewhere between US$40 billion and US$70 billion. That’s about US$1 billion to US$2 billion net profit annually on average, not bad for a job as a president ruling a nation with GDP per capita of just $6,300.
Hosni Mubarak Demoracy
In fact, Mubarak knew it was game over when the protesters persisted even after he cut the nation’s internet access and use of forces to intimidate the tens of hundreds of protesters. And his delayed exit was definitely not to pray for a dignified exit but rather to buy time to move money around and hide significant parts of his fortune. If former Philippine President Marcos had US$684 million on deposits in various Swiss banks alone, expect nothing less than that from Mubarak’s Swiss accounts. The Swiss government has said it is temporarily freezing any assets in Swiss banks that could be linked to Mubarak.
Believed to have flown to the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, much of Mubarak’s wealth were from investment deals in British and Swiss banks or tied up in upmarket real estate in London, New York, Los Angeles and expensive tracts of the Red Sea coast, not to mention commissions from arm deals. Mubarak’s half-Welsh wife, Suzanne and their sons, Gamal and Alaa, accumulated wealth through partnerships with foreign investors and companies. Mubarak’s wife’s fortune alone was estimated at about US$5 billion.
Regardless whether Mubarak’s wealth is US$40 billion, US$70 billion or more, the fact remains that tracking the money trail would be almost impossible, let alone claiming it back to the people of Egypt. If the Philippine government couldn’t even bring back billions of dollars plundered by former dictator Marcos more than 20 years after his death, what more can the new government of Egypt do to recover it with today’s information technology?
Marcos Mubarak Mahathir Richest Man
Obviously top army officials were on Mubarak’s payroll judging from his ease of exit from the country. Mubarak may no be the President of Egypt anymore but his tentacles are still in the country. His worry is not about money but more on possible prosecution or assassination. But if you think Hosni Mubarak is the richest man on earth, wait till you hear what has former dictator Mahathir Mohamad plundered. How about US$100 billion?
Then there is Malaysia's Mahathir
Using the same rule of thumb that Mubarak “earned” about US1 billion to US2 billion annually, Mahathir’s wealth easily top US$22 to US$44 billion over his 22-year of iron-fist rule. However Malaysia has more natural resources than Egypt and economically, Malaysia is richer although not necessary less corrupted than Egypt. Just like Egypt, corruption in Malaysia is so entrenched that every institutions are tainted – from the monarchy, judiciary, executive, legislature to the lowest ranking policemen on the street. Hence Mahathir is easily worth more than that.
If there’s one factor that is separating Malaysia from Egypt, that’s unemployment. The present government of Malaysia may be more corrupt than previous Mubarak’s administration but Malaysia’s ruling party is smart enough to generate jobs in various government departments especially to cater for the ethnic-Malay, though the jobs created are not needed. If there’s one group that would take to the street just like the Egypt uprising, it would be the ethnic-Malay themselves.
Mubarak Red Sea Resort Sharm el-Sheikh
As long as the Malaysia government can provide them with jobs, the scale of demonstration seen in Egypt would not happen in Malaysia. And as long as PM Najib Razak and his mentor Mahathir Mohamad can keep the pace in feeding these mouths and play the racial cards in their “divide and rule” doctrine, they can rule the country for many more decades and in the process continue to plunder the country.
By the time they’re ousted from the country the same way as Marcos and Mubarak, provided there would be an uprising of the same scale as Egypt in the first place, Mahathir and his followers could easily become the richest man on earth. And if there’s an uprising in Malaysia, do not expect any friendly police or military men in sympathy of the demonstrators. Again, Malaysia is very different from Egypt so an uprising of such stamina and scale is very distant.

*****************************
The man who created the second SD for Bala is more powerful than Lingam.
Lingam can only control the Chief Justice and wag his tail for Mahathir Kutty.
But Cecil only has to sneeze and Mahathir Kutty, Pak Lah, Najib, Nor Yakob, Daim and certain Royalty will wet their pants.
Complaining to Bar Council is just a waste of time for Cecil can tighten the rope he holds.
Unless of course if the people he controls decide to kill him off first.
Fuad was bummed off with few loose screw and bomb in Sabah, Jalil was drugged and cemented alive in Hong Kong, while Altantuya with C4 in Selangor. 
So how will these UMNO Mafia take care of Cecil?
