Union of the snake

Self proclaimed Islamist party PAS has now recluse back as a party of clerics and adopted their conservative approach and philosophy towards Islam.

PAS ulama to decide direction of Malaysian politics, says Economist

The direction of Malaysian politics hinges on PAS’s ulama faction, especially in its response to the disintegration of opposition coalition Pakatan Rakyat, says The Economist.

The weekly newspaper reported that the Islamist party’s conservative wing was the decision maker after it trounced its moderate members at the recent muktamar.

“Much hinges on how PAS’s dominant conservative wing chooses to proceed. The party’s ageing leaders seem to think that time is running out to introduce hudud in Kelantan and look willing to reach some form of accommodation with Umno, despite a history of antagonism, in order to achieve it,” it said.

It added that support from PAS, however tacit, would boost Umno’s chances of stringing out its long reign.

“But it would also see Malaysia’s poisonous politics split more cleanly along ethnic lines – hardly a heartening thought.”

Pakatan’s collapse came after PAS motioned to sever ties with DAP during its muktamar. The move originated from the Islamist party’s ulama wing and was forced through the assembly of the party’s main body, much to the anger of some grassroots delegates.

On Wednesday, PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail confirmed that officially the pact was over.

Former opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who is serving time in prison, yesterday urged his former allies to work together to maintain Penang, Selangor and Kelantan, the three opposition-led states.

He also told party leaders to work together with non-governmental organisations to bring change and “reject the Barisan Nasional government’s greed for power and corruption”. – June 19, 2015.

It is obvious PAS’s partner in crime of the (un)holy-marriage-(in)convenience-between-backstabbing-strange-bedfellows is clear about their union is over where as PAS is dilly-dally being in denial admitting where exactly their position is.

PAS in denial for saying Pakatan not dead yet, says Teresa

Published: 19 June 2015 1:04 PM

PAS is experiencing “denial syndrome” for not acknowledging that its motion to cut ties with DAP had brought about the demise of Pakatan Rakyat, Seputeh MP Teresa Kok said today.

Yesterday, PAS election director Mustafa Ali said PR had only “fainted” and not dead despite DAP declaring the coalition had ceased to exist and PKR saying it could no longer function.

Kok, who is also DAP national vice chairperson, said Mustafa’s remark was “laughable” and failed to understand the consequences of his party’s motion in its recent muktamar or congress, which was passed without debate.
“His remarks also prove that he has not accepted the reality that PAS has killed off PR and that PR no longer exists,” Kok said in a statement today.

Although some PAS leaders have argued that the motion was not final, Kok said it was clear the muktamar was the highest decision-making body in the party.

“Mustafa and many PAS leaders are political veterans and there is no way that they did not understand the meaning and effect of the clear-cut motion.”

She also denied that DAP had made the decision to leave the coalition, saying it “repeated violations” of the common policy framework and PAS’s motion which effectively killed PR.

“Mustafa should not, therefore, attempt to shift the blame for PR’s demise on DAP, especially when he is totally aware that for close to a year, PR has existed only in name but not in fact due to PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang’s violations of the Leadership Council’s decisions.” – June 19, 2015.

*****************

It is not sure why PAS is very sluggish if not in denial about their failed coalition with Pakatan Rakyat. Nor the game that PAS is playing.

The grassroots which provided the actual machinery during any general or by-election not only for Pakatan Rakyat but any of the Opposition parties when they contest is dependent on PAS supporters and party workers.

PKR is the most which benefitted from PAS’s operational generosity.

  1. The blame game – PAS Mustafa Ali says DAP declared Pakatan dead, DAP Teresa Kok says PAS caused Pakatan going dead.

    PKR is jittery whether can hold Selangor without a Pakatan. Azmin Ali has to convince Sultan Selangor that he will continue to have the confidence of the majority of Selangor ADUNs. He may have a thin majority.

    Anybody trying the katak lompat coup d’etat that Anwarul Al Juburi tried at the Federal level in 2008?

  2. Moderates, progressives, liberals – these words have been bandied about for the Anwaristas in PAS. Those who subscribe to Anwar’s so-called ketuananan rakyat, sacrificing the Ketuanan Melayu for the sake of the votes.

    Those who join the clamour for the discarding of the Sedition Act that protects the sensitive Articles of the Constitution that represent the rights and interests of the Malays. Those that the non-Malays should respect as the quid pro quo for them getting citizenship right that the Malays agreed to at Merdeka.

    Just damn the Anwaristas and hail the Ulamas who will not abandon the Malay rights and interests that are incorporated into the Constitution of the country. It’s ok if they decide the direction of Malaysian politics. All others who don’t respect and live fully by the Constitution must be regarded as enemies. No long-term peace and harmony can come about until they do.

  3. PAS has always pursuit its Islamic agenda as much as DAP had pursued its Malaysian Malaysia and PKR pursue its LGBT agenda. The root cause lies in the crisis to appoint MB Perak post GE 2008 and Kajang move. In both event, DAP was antagonistic towards PAS.

    • The so-called Malaysian Malaysia slogan was and is subversive. It subverts the Special Position of the Malays and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak. It wants equality – how can there be equality when there is the Special Position of the Malays and the Bumiputeras.

      It was concocted by the evil, Maha Chauvinist and Racist Lee Kuan Yew. Tengku A Rahman was so soft in handling LKY, should have used ISA against the bloke, like was done on Lim Kit Siang later. Tengku ended up so-called kicking LKY and Spore out of Malaysia but in effect giving away a prized chunk of our territory FOC. Damn.

    • DAP picked up the slogan after LKY and DAP left. It became very unpopular over the years, DAP tried to change it to Middle Malaysia but the rakyat showed them the Middle Finger.

      With a woman like Teresa Kok accusing PAS when it was DAP which killed Pakatan Rakyat, who wouldn’t want to show the Middle Finger. So, let them be out on the doldrums and we be watchful that they won’t start their hate and hate campaign to get the Chinese tsunami again,

      But the tsunami Chinese have seen DAP lied and failed big time, promised to restrain PAS from implementing Hudud, yet PAS got through a bill in Kelantan DUN and a private member’s bill entered in the Order paper in Parliament.
