SHADES OF GLADIO? London Attacker ‘Known’ to MI5 – Police Terror Drill Days Before

March 24, 2017

In the days leading up to the London attacks, Met Police rehearsed a ‘terrifyingly realistic’ drill on the River Thames prior to yet another known wolf act of terror taking place.

‘GLADIO-322?’ – The London attacks occurred exactly a year after the Brussels airport bombings, conjuring the peculiar lore of Yale’s Skull & Bones numerology. Its also worth noting, the London attacks appear to have echoed elements of a 2016 Hollywood film called “London Has Fallen.”(Photo Illustration 21WIRE’s Shawn Helton)

Though many are still reeling in the wake of the tragic events in London – key questions have emerged following this latest terror attack in the UK.

During the course of this article, we’ll examine some of the available evidence of the events in London, as well as discuss the relevance of the ‘known wolf’ aspect of the case. In addition, we’ll consider the political context with which to view the attacks following an uptick of Western allied involvement in Syria.

Let’s review the London attacks below…

The London Attacks

On March 22nd, 4 people were said to have been killed in apparent two-pronged attack that stretched from London’s Westminster Bridge to Parliament Square. All told, the crime scene reportedly left 40 people injured.

According to authorities, the London attacker now believed to be Khalid Masood, (aka Adrian Russell Ajao) drove into a crowd of people on Westminster Bridge, then allegedly carried out a knife attack on an officer outside of Parliament Square – but is this the full story?

In less than 24 hours, London authorities revealed that the British-born Masood, was already well-known to MI5.

CBS news reported the following:

“Masood had an extensive criminal history stretching back 20 years — much of it petty offenses. He has been known by a number of aliases, including Khalid Choudri/Choudari.

His first conviction was in November 1983 for criminal damage, and his last was in December 2003 for possession of an illegal knife.

The London Metropolitan Police have said Masood had previous convictions for assaults, including causing gross bodily harm, possession of offensive weapons and public order offences.”

Even though Masood was on the intelligence/police radar, he was never convicted of any terror related offenses and was not currently the subject of any investigation just prior to the London attacks. However, Masood was previously investigated on suspicion of extremism in the past.

Interestingly, shortly after the attack, eye-witness accounts of multiple assailants was mentioned, something that directly contradicted the official story. In fact, in those reports it was suggested that at least two individuals participated in the attack. This aspect of the case has been mostly buried by major media outlets, something we’ve seen before in other high-profile cases involving ‘known wolf’ terrorists.

On March 22nd, Reuters stated at 17:30 GMT, “…police are currently looking for a second suspect in the Houses of Parliament. A BBC reporter says a witness described two assailants as being a “bald white man” and a “black man with goatee beard.” 

When we scratch away the mainstream veneer of any story, what we often discover underneath is a web of clandestine deception and media manipulation.

In recent years, there’s been a pattern of multiple suspects often witnessed or said to be involved in other terror-related events. This proved to be the case in the aftermath of the Nice, France truck attack (a nearly identical attack method to Berlin), as well as the Brussels airport bombing in 2016.

Zero Hedge reported on the confusion over the official identity of the attacker. Early reports had first named a known hate preacher as the person responsible for the London attacks – but it turned out he’s still serving time in prison:

“Press reports are circulating that the terrorist responsible for the attack on Westminster Bridge in London, has been named as Abu Izzadeen, born Trevor Brooks from Clapton in Hackney, an infamous UK-born hate-preacher and Islamic extremist who had been convicted for raising funds for terrorism.”

QUESTION: Was this really just a case of mistaken identity, like both the New Year’s Eve Turkish nightclub attack and the Brussels bombings of 2016 – or was there something else at play?

Security & Police Terror Drills

On March 6th, Mark Rowley of the Met Police disclosed that 13 Paris-style terror plots have been supposedly foiled over the past 4 years, which have relied largely on public observation and reports of suspicious activity.

QUESTION: Why in the era of mass data collection, GPS tracking and surveillance of personal devices, is British counter-intelligence relying on the public so heavily to help solve terror cases?

Here’s a passage from Evening Standard on the matter:

“Assistant commissioner Mark Rowley, of the Met Police, also revealed that during that period there were more than 500 live counter-terror investigations at any time.

He disclosed the figures as he launched an appeal – Action Counters Terrorism – for the public to report any suspicions and act on their instincts, saying their help is critical to foiling atrocities.

He said that since the murder of Lee Rigby in May 2013, police and intelligence agencies have disrupted 13 terrorist attack plots – one higher than the last update in October.”

On March 19th, the UK’s Telegraph published a report detailing an anti-terror drill conducted by Met Police just days before the London attacks:

“Armed police have played out the chaos of a “pleasure boat” terrorist attack on the Thames in a unique marine-based exercise to test the emergency response to gunmen.

A sightseeing vessel became the scene of a fierce mock-gun battle between armed officers and police volunteers posing as terrorists shortly after 11am on Sunday, close to the London Docklands area.

The exercise marks the first time the Metropolitan Police have enacted a live-action, water-borne exercise of its kind, with over 200 officers involved.”

There has been an uncanny number of attacks preceded by anti-terror multi-agency drills that theatrically act out violence to prepare to engage with violence, this also happened prior to the Brussels attacks of 2016.

This was also the case with London’s 7/7 bombing – watch this ITV interview with Peter Power…

Incredibly, Power predicted the 7/7 attacks a year earlier on BBC Panorama on May 16th 2004…

The Daily Mail reported the Parliament Square crime scene also revealed that the gates were left wide open with no one guarding it:

“A knife-wielding terrorist only managed to get on to the parliamentary estate because the gates were open for ministers to vote – and the Commons authorities knew it was a security weak spot.”

Continuing, the article revealed that the policeman killed during the London attacks was ‘unarmed’ at the time he was stabbed by the alleged perpetrator:

“Concerns have been raised about how the extremist managed to get into the grounds of one of Britain’s most important buildings and why the policeman killed was unarmed.

No armed police are thought to have been on duty at the gates, which open on to Parliament Square.”

The article also stated that the entrance was “…blockaded with metal barriers, [and] is often left open during votes so ministers can drive in and out quickly. Once the division bell goes they only have eight minutes until the vote ends.”

QUESTION: How did the alleged attacker Masood, know exactly when the gates might be open or closed during the voting session?

Police Commissioner Eyewitness?

Rather incredibly, London’s Acting Police Commissioner Craig Mackey, just so happened to be a witness to the Parliament Square attack on Pc Keith Palmer. Here’s the stunning admission logged by the Daily Mail:

‘I personally was a witness to part of yesterday’s events, including part of the tragic attack on Pc Palmer,’ Mr Mackey said.

‘As with all police officers, I therefore had a duty to secure my evidence and produce statements yesterday evening, which I did before resuming my role leading our response to this incident.’

The recent London attacks are a familiar theme: Berlin’s Christmas Market Attack perpetrator Anis Amri, was watched by authorities for months in the lead up to staging a truck attack. Additionally, the recent events in London also recalled the Nice, France attack, with Mohamed Lahouij Bouhlel, a 31 year-old French man of Tunisian descent said to have carried out a similar vehicular assault. Both highly dramatized “ISIS-inspired” attacks produced a string of  ‘known wolves‘ that once again revealed evidence inextricably tying terror to security services.

QUESTION: Will this attack and others like it in the future, refuel the US-UK ‘willing coalition’ war rhetoric concerning military and proxy occupation in Syria?

The latest symbolically charged ‘ISIS-approved’ attack this Spring, appears to be an effort to polarize the perception of Western viewers with yet another round of wartime propaganda, while also providing a media smoke screen over recent US military action in Syria. In fact, a Reuters report practically confirms this:

“The perpetrator of the attacks yesterday in front of the British parliament in London is an Islamic State soldier and he carried out the operation in response to calls to target citizens of the coalition.”

RT reports there have been dozens of anti-terror raids over the past 24-48 hours following the London attacks, along with other significant arrests. Here’s a passage from RT:

“A 39-year-old woman was arrested at an address in east London.

Overnight in Birmingham, a total of six people between the ages of 21 and 28 were arrested at two separate locations while a 58-year-old man was also arrested at a separate address in the city this morning.

All suspects were arrested on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts.

The Met added that the investigation into the terrorist attack “continues to develop at a fast pace and involves hundreds of detectives.”

Informants & Patsies

QUESTION: Why was Masood never convicted of violent extremism by authorities?

As 21 WIRE has documented over the years, many so-called shooting/terror/attacks involve individuals being monitored by security services prior to an alleged act taking place. A place where a ‘lone wolf’ graduates into the ranks of a known wolf. In fact, very often those being watched by authorities exhibit all the tell-tale signs of a patsy or an informant, working either for a law enforcement or intelligence agency to potentially avoid jail time for previous criminal activity. Historically, government operators have often made use of low-life criminals, and mentally disturbed individuals to fulfill various role in entrapment stings or sometimes as bonafide actors in an actual attacks.

In any case, alleged attackers and security agencies have a dicey relationship, making any link between them highly suspect in nature.

In January of 2015, a strategic security service think-tank known as The Soufan Group, reported that a larger national security threat resides with radicals who’ve had a lengthy criminal background with known ties to security agencies:

“The Soufan Group, a New York think tank, said a better term for “lone wolves” would be “known wolves“, given how many are already known to Western intelligence agencies before they strike.

“These individuals, acting alone or in small groups … have been on the radar of various agencies and organisations, highlighting the difficulty of effectively monitoring and managing people at the nexus of criminality and terrorism,” it said in a report this week…”

As we’ve mentioned at 21WIRE numerous times in recent years, many political leaders and media operatives bang the drums of security over so-called terror ‘sleeper cells’ (see the the London Boys sleeper cell) hiding in a nation near you – none of them acknowledge the historical fact that they themselves have also helped to harbor, grow, foment and radicalize individuals through counter-terrorism operations for decades.

All too often we’ve seen the ‘stage persona’ of any alleged attacker or killer being touted as hard evidence, despite the fact that even strong circumstantial evidence of any apparent crime would likely result in many hours of analysis and debate, potentially without a definitive conclusion, even if the evidence reaches a court room.

For the average person, it’s hard to differentiate from a drill or a real event, causing one to scrutinize the legitimacy of such an operation.

The Terror Factory

In August of 2016, a hyper-propagandized war image of Omar Daqneesh went viral in the West, while the well-known radical preacher Anjem Choudary was ‘protected’ by MI5, despite being linked to major terror plots over the past decade. All in all, they were two narratives that reflected the ‘humanitarian’ and ‘radicalization’ guises of NATO’s international security syndicate that has masked the reality of the War On Terror era.

Here’s a portion of a 21WIRE article I wrote in August of 2016 entitled “COINTEL CHAOS: The MI5’s ‘Known Wolf’ Preacher, Aleppo Agitprop & NATO’s Mask.” 

The dense report further outlined the historical lens with which to view links between terror operators and counter-terror operations and how both have played a dramatic role in many major acts of terror over the past 16 years:

“It’s worth noting that the contemptible cleric Choudary, now facing jail time for supporting ISIS, crossed paths with Abu Hamza, another radical preacher who subsequently ran the Finsbury Park mosque in North London – a known limited hangout for spooks, criminals and other informants.

In 2015, 21WIRE discussed the dubious role of Hamza at Finsbury Park, as well as his long time connection to MI5, while under the gaze of MI6:

“Hamza’s role as a state instigator and secret custodian of the Finsbury Park’s radical ‘honey pot’, now appears obvious. In a typical honey pot operation, security chiefs will place an outrageously radical character into position in order to attract “the worst of the worst” and then inform on them to authorities. For years Hamza openly preached his overtly radical, over-the-top sermons at Finsbury Park, often praising Osama Bin Laden and glorifying the attacks of 9/11, all the while mocking the police.” 

Continuing, the Special Report examined Abu Hamza (photo, left) and his meetings with British security services since the 1990’s:

“…the Daily Telegraph disclosed how Abu Hamza had at least 12 secret meetings with MI5 and police special branch over a six year period, starting in the late 1990’s. Other testimonies also exist that show both Abu Hamza and Abu Qatada – Britain’s two most celebrated radical Islamists, were both informants.”

In May of 2015, the UK’s Independent discussed the almost two dozen terror attacks linked to the group known as “Al-Muhajiroun,” a banned terror-linked organization with ties to British intelligence, specifically MI5. In the passage below, many of the international attacks connected to Al-Muhajiroun had been ‘foiled’ by police prior to happening:

“The 7/7 attacks, the murder of fusilier Lee Rigby, the plot to blow up planes with liquid bombs and the plot to blow up the Ministry of Sound nightclub are among the 23 planned terrorist attacks that have been linked to one single radical group operating in the UK over the past two decades: al Muhajiroun.

According to a new book by terrorism expert Raffaello Pantucci, al Muhajiroun, a banned network in the UK, has been linked to a number of plots and attacks carried out both in Britain and abroad since 2000.

The book, entitled We love death as you love life – which Pantucci said is a “catchphrase” used by many of the attackers in their propaganda – claims that 23 out of 51 of these terror plots either carried out or foiled by police in the UK and abroad have been linked to al-Muhajiroun.”

Shortly before London’s 7/7 bombings in 2005,  Al-Muhajiroun’s Omar Bakri Mohammed (Anjem Choudary’s co-founder) was outed as an informant for MI5 after the Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter Ron Suskind spoke to a senior MI5 official.

Bakri later ‘conceded’ the connection during an interview in Beirut, which was featured in Suskind’s controversial book, The Way of the World.

In an article written by Nafeez Ahmed entitled,“The circus: How British intelligence primed both sides of the ‘terror war’,” the larger role of Bakri and Choudary is revealed:

“Bakri was regularly in touch with his deputy, Anjem Choudary, over the internet and even delivered online speeches to his followers in Britain instructing them to join IS and murder civilians. He has now been detained and charged by Lebanese authorities for establishing terror cells in the country.

Bakri was also deeply involved “with training the mujahideen [fighters] in camps on the Syrian borders and also on the Palestine side.” The trainees included four British Islamists “with professional backgrounds” who would go on to join the war in Syria. Bakri also claimed to have trained “many fighters,” including people from Germany and France, since arriving in Lebanon. Was Mohammed Emwazi among them? Last year, Bakri disciple Mizanur Rahman confirmedthat at least five European Muslims who had died fighting under IS in Syria had been Bakri acolytes.”

Interestingly, a UK think-tank called the Quilliam Foundation, that focuses on counter-extremism, has functioned alongside the MI5’s counter insurgent programs. Many critics of  Quilliam have suggested the foundation has some controversial bedfellows, in addition to their close affiliation with the Council on Foreign Relations and their connection to the Henry Jackson Society which has been associated with other neoconservative think-tanks.

In the US, many neoconservative republicans have been in favor of escalating the conflict in Syria and Quilliam’s involvement could be seen as another group behind the scenes designing a particular outcome for Western interests.”

QUESTION: Is it possible that Masood was working in a similar manner with MI5?

COERCED OPERATIVE? – Was Mohammad Emwazi forced to participate, and ‘play a role’ in the fraudulent ISIS terror videos? (Photo link 24matins.fr)

Adding to the information above, the man purported to be the infamous ISIS executioner ‘Jihadi John’ was a former computer programmer, 27-year-old Mohammad Emwazi. According to reports, Emwazi was believed to have left the UK to join ISIS militants in Syria sometime in 2013.

In fact, British security services, along with the FBI, revealed that they had ‘unmasked’ the ISIS terror video persona known, and had even known his identity for at least 6 months. While this news stunned the international community – it was quickly revealed that the man suspected of being the ISIS front-man was known by MI5 for the past 6 years.

Contradictory Profile of a Killer

In the aftermath of many high-profile terror events we here reports of those who knew the alleged perpetrator and very often these people find it hard to believe that the person they had come to know could carry out such a heinous act, even though he had a lengthy criminal history. The BBC reported the following:

“Stuart Knight, a classmate of Masood’s at Huntleys Secondary School for Boys in Tunbridge Wells, said he was a “nice lad” who was a “fun guy, always laughing, always joking”.

Mr Knight added that Masood “worked reasonably hard, [was] good at sport, played rugby very well. Just an unassuming guy. Nothing extraordinary about him at all”.

He also said he was shocked to learn of his former classmate’s actions. “I wouldn’t have thought it of him. It was so out of character for the guy I knew nearly 40 years ago.”

CBS news added:

“The manager of a hotel where Masood stayed the night before he plowed his 4×4 into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge and then stabbed a police officer at Parliament said Friday that he seemed unusually outgoing and mentioned details about his family, including having a sick father.

“He was normal, in fact friendly, because we spent possibly five or 10 minutes talking to him about his background and where he came from,” Sabeur Toumi told CBS partner network Sky News on Friday.”

QUESTION: Is it possible that Masood was financially enticed for his role in the event?

Look for the Met to build up a darker back story to further gain public acceptance of the official narrative of the London attacks as it relates to Masood. As Masood’s violent criminal past will be used as the pretext for his apparent involvement in the London attacks. Already authorities have searched a Carmarthenshire home belonging to his mother, echoing some of the investigative tactics seen after the terror events witnessed in San Bernardino and Orlando over the past two years.

The Met’s Mark Rowley discussed the extent of the search for information thus far. Here’s a quote published by CBS news:

“We’ve seized 2,700 items from these searches, including massive amounts of computer data for us to work through,” Rowley said, adding that contact had been made with 3,500 witnesses.

Below is another look at the type of formulaic scripting often involved in these kinds of events. Scripted elements that are grafted onto each future terror-related incident:

– Suspect or suspects have alleged connections to terror or terror networks.

– Suspect or multiple suspects reportedly have ‘radicalized’ views on religion, feeding a prepackaged media narrative.

– Sensational media projections bring in additional story lines for dramatic effect.

– There is an unknown motive for the crime committed – followed quickly by a ‘presumed’ terror motive with vague evidence provided.

– Politicians, law enforcement and media call the incident a ‘terror attack’ before all evidence has been reviewed.

– A ‘claim of responsibility’ manifesto, text or social media post is conjured within 48 hours or less after an attack.

Time and time again, we’ve seen this same choreographed narrative pushed by mass media and authorities – only to be exposed at a later date.

It is also widely known that the FBI created the counter-intelligence program (COINTELPRO) to influence and disrupt political factions from the inside out.

Between 1956 and 1971 (including the Socialist Workers party in 1973), the FBI’s controversial program infiltrated and radicalized hundreds of left-wing and right-wing groups to control and neutralize political dissidents across America.

Similarly, on a global scale, NATO’s paramilitary-style stay-behind-armies (under the moniker Operation Gladio) have been implicated in a number of terror attacks across Europe for several decades.

Allied nations regularly bring up the fact that Western intelligence uses double agents and informants under the banner of security to obfuscate the deceitful reality of such programs.

Was the London attacker also involved in a covert scenario like this?

Here’s another look at a compelling documentary discussing the details of NATO’s secret army used to redirect political interests…

MAHATHIR GUNA DUIT FOREX - BNM YANG DISONGLAP UNTUK BIAYA PH

Mahathir telah bersetuju untuk membiayai Pakatan Harapan sebanyak RM3 bilion untuk pilihan raya umum akan datang bagi mendapatkan persetujuan mendaftar gabungan itu dan logo bersama serta manifesto bersama pilihan raya. Tetapi ada satu lagi sebab untuk RM3 bilion tersebut. RM3 bilion itu adalah sebahagian daripada wang Forex yang dicuri dan Mahathir mahu menutup mulut Kit Siang agar beliau berdiam diri.

Siri kursus matapelajaran "REALPOLITIK KIRI KANAN MALAYSIA 101" diteruskan khusus bagi gerombolan kambing-kambing reaksioneri yang begitu berminat dan gelojoh dalam melibatkan diri dengan perebutan kuasa negara tetapi terlalu naif dan bingai untuk memahami realiti penyangak-penyangak dalam negara yang sebenar.

Apakah artikel oleh RPK ini menjadikan kami pentaksub kerajaan PM Najib Tun Razak? Tidak. Semasa Dr Madey memerintah dengan kuku besi pun kita tidak menentang kerajaan Dr M, maka tiada sebab untuk kita mengganggu urusan kerajaan yang sedia ada.


Sedangkan mereka (kerajaan sekarang) jauh lebih terbuka kepada suara2 penentangan berbanding dengan Dr M dahulu. Kerajaan yang berkuasa boleh dinasihati dengan baik melalui saluran-saluran yang tepat. Kerja kita bukanlah untuk menghuru harakan keadaan dengan menumbangkan kerajaan. - "Editor in Chief" MK ( https://www.facebook.com/Melayukita )

MAHATHIR GUNA DUIT FOREX - BNM YANG DISONGLAP UNTUK BIAYA PAKATAN HARAPAN
Oleh: Raja Petra Kamarudin

Selama beberapa bulan sejak PPBM yang turut dikenali sebagai Pribumi dilancarkan pakatan pembangkang telah disebut sebagai Pribumi-Pakatan Harapan. Kini, akhirnya, Pakatan Harapan telah bersetuju untuk menerima Pribumi ke dalam pakatan pembangkang. Jadi sekarang ia tidak lagi Pribumi-Pakatan Harapan tetapi gabungan Pakatan Harapan daripada empat parti: DAP, PKR, Pribumi dan PAN.

Walau bagaimanapun, Mahathir tidak mahu Pribumi menjadi anggota rasmi Pakatan Harapan melainkan jika gabungan itu didaftarkan secara sah, dengan beliau sebagai Pengerusi, dan melainkan jika semua pihak ahli bertanding dalam pilihan raya umum akan datang di bawah satu nama dengan satu bendera dan satu logo. Mahathir mahu Pakatan Harapan menjadi seperti Barisan Nasional di mana semua pihak gabungan itu bertanding dalam pilihan raya di bawah Barisan Nasional dan bukan di bawah parti masing-masing. Mahathir merasakan ini adalah satu-satunya cara pakatan pembangkang boleh menang lebih daripada 70 kerusi parlimen.

Pakatan Harapan telah bersetuju untuk mendaftarkan secara sah gabungan itu dan terbit logo sama dan manifesto pilihan raya bersama seperti yang Mahathir mahu.

Pada 20 Mac 2017, Pakatan Harapan mengumumkan bahawa mereka telah bersetuju untuk mendaftarkan secara sah gabungan itu dan terbit logo bersama dan manifesto bersama pilihan raya, seperti apa yang Mahathir mahu. Mahathir, seterusnya, bersetuju untuk membiayai pembangkang sebanyak RM3 bilion pada pilihan raya umum akan datang.

Apabila isu derma RM2.6 bilion yang Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak terima daripada sumber Arab mula timbul, Dr Mahathir berkata RM2.6 bilion adalah terlalu banyak. Mahathir mendedahkan bahawa ketika beliau menjadi Perdana Menteri, dia hanya memerlukan RM1.5 bilion untuk membiayai pilihan raya (yang semua orang sudah tahu lama dahulu). Ini bermakna lebih daripada RM1 bilion telah dirampas dan Mahathir mahu tahu apa yang berlaku kepada wang itu.

Sekarang Mahathir perlu jilat ludahnya semula. RM1.5 bilion tidak mencukupi dan dia benar-benar perlu menyediakan RM3 bilion untuk membiayai Pakatan Harapan. Pendek kata, Mahathir mengesahkan bahawa RM2.6 bilion tidak terlalu banyak dan merupakan angka yang betul untuk membiayai pilihan raya umum memandangkan dia juga telah menyediakan RM3 bilion untuk membiayai Pakatan Harapan.

Mahathir perlu menutup mulut Kit Siang dengan wang

Tetapi Mahathir mempunyai lebih daripada satu sebab untuk bersetuju membiayai Pakatan Harapan sebanyak RM3 bilion. Pertama, sudah tentu, adalah untuk mendapatkan Pakatan Harapan bersetuju bagi mendaftar secara sah pakatan pembangkang dan menerbitkan logo bersama dan manifesto bersama pilihan raya bersama. Yang kedua adalah untuk memastikan bahawa Kit Siang tidak bekerjasama dengan atau memberi keterangan di hadapan Suruhanjaya Siasatan Diraja (RCI) yang akan ditubuhkan untuk menyiasat AS $ 10 bilion Forex kerugian 1988-1994.

Kit Siang mempunyai semua bukti berkaitan dengan skandal ini, dan jika dia memberikan keterangan di hadapan RCI dan membentangkan bukti, habislah Mahathir. Kit Siang telah mendedahkan pada masa lalu bahawa dia mempunyai semua bukti dan jika pembangkang berkuasa, dia akan memastikan bahawa Mahathir ditangkap dan dihantar ke penjara selama-lamanya.

Dan ini adalah ketakutan paling besar Mahathir. Dia perlu menutup mulut Kit Siang dengan wang. Mahathir akan menggunakan sebahagian daripada wang yang diambilnya dari Bank Negara yang berselindung disebalik ‘kerugian Forex’ ke mulut Kit Siang. Apabila mulut Kit Siang disumbat dengan wang yang dicuri beliau akan menjadi orang yang terakhir di muka bumi ini untuk menuduh Mahathir mencuri berbilion-bilion daripada Bank Negara melalui urusan Forex 1988-1994.

DAP berpura-pura perlu mengumpul dana untuk membiayai pilihan raya umum akan datang sedangkan mereka sudah mempunyai RM3 bilion daripada Mahathir, apatah lagi RM1.5 bilion daripada Israel yang mereka terima sebelum ini.

Pendek kata, Mahathir membayar Kit Siang agar berdiam diri. Sebagai bonus, Mahathir menjadi Pengerusi gabungan berdaftar secara sah. Imej Pakatan Harapan ketika itu akan berubah dari pakatan diketuai DAP kepada diketuai Pribumi dan ia boleh menutup identiti Ali Baba. Mahathir berharap ini berupaya memenangi hati lebih ramai orang Melayu. Dan ini sesuai untuk Kit Siang juga kerana DAP tidak perlu membawa keluar RM1.5 bilion yang diterima daripada Israel dan risiko membuktikan dakwaan dari mana sumber pembiayaan DAP datang.

Tetapi Mahathir tidak selamat lagi. Walaupun Pakatan Harapan mungkin telah bersetuju untuk mendaftarkan gabungan itu dan menerbitkan logo bersama dan manifesto bersama pilihan raya, itu tidak bermakna DAP tidak boleh keluar dengan manifesto pilihan raya sendiri (berasingan) , seperti masa lalu, (atau manifesto pilihan raya berasingan bagi setiap negeri) dan bertanding dalam pilihan raya di bawah banner DAP sendiri – ini bermakna ia akan tidak bermakna bagi semua langkah ini.

DAP masih terbuka dan ‘roket’ mereka tidak akan dibenamkan lagi. DAP tahu bahawa pengundi Cina dijamin mengundi ‘roket’ tetapi tidak ada jaminan bahawa mereka akan mengundi untuk sesuatu yang lain. Jadi DAP akan kehilangan banyak dengan membuang ‘roket’ itu.

Orang Cina hanya kenal roket dan apa-apa lain akan merugikan DAP banyak undi

Kit Siang mahu Mahathir menghantar RM3 bilion terlebih dahulu sebelum DAP membuat keputusan muktamad dan menutup pintu pada ‘roket’. Sehingga itu pintu masih terbuka. Menjanjikan RM3 bilion adalah satu perkara. Tetapi selagi RM3 bilion tidak lagi di dalam poket anda, maka apa sahaja boleh berlaku di sepanjang jalan. Lagipun, Mahathir telah membuat begitu banyak U-turn yang anda tidak pernah tahu apa yang beliau akan lakukan esok hari.

Jadi ia adalah satu jalan buntu pada masa ini. Mahathir mahu gabungan berdaftar yang sah dan bendera yang sama dan logo dan manifesto bersama pilihan raya. Beliau juga mahu semua pihak bertanding dalam pilihan raya umum akan datang di bawah nama sama dan bukan di bawah nama-nama parti masing-masing. Anthony Loke Siew Fook berkata ini belum muktamad. Dan ia akan menjadi muktamad hanya apabila Mahathir menghantar dana RM3 bilion.

Mahathir tidak mempunyai pilihan selain memberi RM3 bilion kerana dia perlu membeli Kit Siang agar berdiam diri . Jika Kit Siang “bising” semasa Forex RCI itu Mahathir akan “habis”. Tetapi sama ada dia memberikan wang itu sekarang atau lebih dekat dengan pilihan raya umum adalah satu keputusan yang beliau kini perlu buat. Tidak lama lagi mungkin mesyuarat RCI dan jika Mahathir tidak boleh menutup mulut Kit Siang maka masa depan beliau akan menjadi sangat suram. Mahathir bermain pada cangkuk Kit Siang dan dia perlu membebaskan diri daripada genggaman Kit Siang.



Kit Siang hilang sabar apabila ditanya mengenai pendirian sekarang mengenai skandal Forex

Apabila ditanya oleh pemberita mengenai pendirian sekarang berkenaan skandal Forex, Kit Siang naik angin dan menjerit bahawa pendirian beliau masih tetap sama. Kit Siang berkata, dia masih mahu melihat orang-orang yang menyebabkan US10 bilion kerugian ini untuk disiasat dan dihukum. Dan skandal perlu disiasat oleh RCI kerana sebahagian besar wang yang kerugian ‘tidak normal’ tetapi telah dicuri di berselindung disebalik ‘kerugian Forex’.


Jika peranan Mahathir di dalam skandal "rompakan" ini didedahkan, maka beliau terpaksa memulangkan wang tersebut. Dan kita sedang bercakap mengenai USD10 billion di sini yang sebahagian besarnya telah disonglap. Oleh yang demikian RM 3 billion adalah jumlah yang "kecil" sebagai "harga" bayaran untuk mendiamkan Kit Siang, dan pada yang sama dapat menjadi Pengerusi Pakatan Harapan yang berdaftar di sisi undang-undang, sekaligus dinobatkan sebagai Perdana Menteri yang menanti.

Jadi siapa kata Lim Kit Siang dan pemimpin-pemimpin DAP bersih, suci, tidak rasuah dan tidak boleh dibeli? Kit Siang telah membuktikan bahawa dengan harga yang tepat bahkan dia pun boleh dibeli. Dan Mahathir, seterusnya, telah belajar bahawa apabila berurusan dengan Kit Siang janji-janji manis sahaja tidak mememadai. Ia memerlukan wang pendahuluan...

Mahathir telah menggelarkan Kit Siang sebagai rasis dan diktator selama lebih daripada 30 tahun. Sebaliknya Kit Siang telah berkali-kali memanggil Mahathir seorang yang kejam, perkauman, pencuri, penipu dan pembunuh dalam tempoh yang sama. Ini tidak pernah menjadi masalah pada masa lalu kerana apa yang DAP hanya ambil berat adalah tentang undi Cina. Hari ini, bagaimanapun, Kit Siang sensitif tentang gelaran rasis dan diktator kerana Pakatan Harapan memerlukan undi Melayu untuk mara ke Putrajaya.

“Hari ini, saya mencabar beliau menyaman saya kerana melabel beliau sebagai bapa segala perkauman. Kalau dia berani, dia boleh menyaman saya; sama ada dia mendakwa saya atau saya menyaman beliau. Apa yang dilakukannya adalah menghina Islam, “kata Lim Kit Siang kepada pemberita di Pusat Khidmat DAP Malim Nawar semalam.

Kit Siang kecewa kerana Annuar Musa telah memanggilnya “rasis, anti-Islam dan diktator” hari sebelumnya, yang menyebabkan mengapa beliau membidasnya semalam.

Lim Kit Siang melepaskan kemarahannya pada Annuar Musa dan memanggil beliau ‘bapa segala perkauman’

Sebenarnya, selama lebih daripada 30 tahun Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad telah memanggil Kit Siang rasis dan diktator. Mahathir juga menuduh Kit Siang sebagai salah satu daripada mereka yang menyebabkan rusuhan kaum 13 Mei pada tahun 1969. Apa yang perlu anda lakukan adalah Google atau mencari YouTube untuk melihat bukti ini.

Sebaliknya, Kit Siang, juga, selama bertahun-tahun telah menuduh Mahathir sebagai rasis dan kejam. Apabila Kit Siang bercakap mengenai Mahathir beliau menggunakan terma ‘negara gagal’, ‘polis negeri’, ‘zalim’, ‘hegemoni’, ‘kleptokrasi’, dan sebagainya, dalam ayat yang sama. Kit Siang juga membelasah Mahathir kerana memegang kuasa untuk sekian lama dan kerana enggan meletak jawatan. Kit Siang biasa membandingkan Mahathir dengan Idi Amin dan Mugabe.


Ia membingungkan mengapa Kit Siang mendapat serangan jantung dengan Annuar Musa. Dia dan Mahathir telah berkata tentang perkara buruk satu sama lain selama beberapa dekad. Lebih 32 dari tahun 1981-2013 Mahathir dan Kit Siang tidak pernah mengatakan satu perkara yang baik tentang satu sama lain. Malah, Kit Siang menjanjikan rakyat Malaysia bahawa jika pembangkang yang berkuasa mereka akan menangkap Mahathir dan memastikan bahawa dia menghabiskan seluruh hidupnya di penjara.

Ia adalah Kit Siang yang pada tahun 1993 mendedahkan di Parlimen bahawa Bank Negara telah kehilangan berbilion Ringgit hasil ‘perjudian’ di pasaran Forex. Jika tidak, rakyat Malaysia tidak akan tahu mengenainya. Pada tahun 1994, Kit Siang memberitahu Parlimen bahawa kerajaan telah berbohong dan meminta semua orang-orang yang terlibat untuk meletakkan jawatan mereka dan bertanggungjawab terhadap kerugian besar Forex Bank Negara yang dianggarkan kira-kira US $ 10 bilion.

Pendek kata, Kit Siang menggelarkan Mahathir sebagai penjahat dan pencuri, sudah tentu rasis, kejam, pembunuh, dan banyak lagi. Jadi mengapa Kit Siang berbuih di mulut mengenai satu perkara yang kecil seperti apa yang dikatakan Annuar? Lagipun, apakah Annuar tidak berkata benar? Adakah Kit Siang tidak menentang Perkara 153 dan syariah (khususnya syariah Pindaan Rang Undang-Undang turut dikenali sebagai RUU355) dan lain-lain? Annuar hanya menyatakan fakta bahawa kebanyakan rakyat Malaysia sudah pun tahu dan telah kenali selama 51 tahun.


Sebab mengapa Kit Siang menggelarkan Mahathir seorang yang rasis dan Mahathir memberi amaran kepada orang Melayu mengenai ancaman daripada kaum Cina

Dan apabila Kit Siang membelasah Mahathir kerana memegang kuasa selama 22 tahun, dan menyifatkan beliau sebagai diktator dan zalim kerana itu, bukankah Kit Siang sendiri mengekalkan kuasa selama 51 tahun? Selama lebih daripada 30 tahun sejak tahun 1980-an telah kita lihat ramai pemimpin DAP meletakkan jawatan daripada parti. Dan mereka semua mengatakan mereka meletak jawatan kerana DAP tidak benar-benar sebuah parti demokratik dan Kit Siang adalah diktator. Selepas 20 atau 30 tahun mereka tidak lagi boleh menerimanya sehinggakan mereka meletak jawatan.

Ini adalah apa yang ahli DAP katakan. Dan bukannya seorang ahli DAP tetapi beratus-ratus lebih dari 30 tahun telah mengatakannya. Jadi, Kit Siang begitu kecewa dia mahu membawa Annuar ke mahkamah. Tetapi Kit Siang enggan membawa Mahathir ke mahkamah walaupun perkara-perkara yang lebih buruk Mahathir telah katakan mengenai beliau, dan begitu juga sebaliknya. Dan Kit Siang enggan menyaman beratus-ratus pemimpin DAP yang telah meletakkan jawatan daripada parti dan memanggilnya diktator dan melabelkan DAP sebuah parti yang tidak demokratik untuk lebih daripada 30 tahun.

Digelar sebagai perkauman dan DAP dipanggil sebuah parti yang tidak demokratik, selama lebih daripada 30 tahun Ki Siang tidak pernah kecewa sebelum ini. Ini adalah kerana DAP tidak pernah mengambil berat tentang undi Melayu sebelum ini. Jadi mengapa marah jika anda dipanggil rasis? Apa yang menjadi keutamaan DAP adalah undi Cina. Selagi mereka mendapat undi Cina maka perkara lain tidak penting.

Objektif utama DAP adalah untuk memenangi Pulau Pinang. Mereka merasakan bahawa Pulau Pinang adalah satu-satunya negeri (atau negeri-pulau) yang orang Cina boleh memerintah. Dengan PAP di Singapura dan DAP di Pulau Pinang maka itulah kepentingannya. Pada pandangan DAP dan PAP ini bermakna orang Cina akan mengawal dua kawasan utama Cina di luar China dan Taiwan dan orang Melayu boleh mengambil seluruh Malaysia.


Kit Siang tidak boleh bertolak ansur di atas kritikan dan soalan sensitif daripada media

Sekarang, bagaimanapun, DAP telah membuat penetapan lebih tinggi. Mereka kini menyedari bahawa mereka sebenarnya boleh mengawal seluruh Malaysia tetapi ia tidak boleh dengan hanya undi Cina. Dengan hanya undi Cina yang terbaik DAP boleh harapkan adalah untuk kekal dalam pembangkang dengan 50 atau lebih kerusi. Untuk mengambil alih negara ini mereka memerlukan sekurang-kurangnya 120 kerusi selamat dan itu bermakna kerusi tambahan mesti datang daripada bukan Cina.

Dan itulah sebabnya Pakatan Harapan tidak boleh lagi dilihat sebagai pakatan pembangkang pimpinan DAP atau DAP yang menguasainya. Pada tahun 2008 dan 2013 ianya bukan menjadi masalah yang besar. Ketika DAP bercakap dengan pengundi Cina, PAS dan PKR bercakap dengan pengundi Melayu. Oleh itu, mereka mampu untuk mendapatkan sokongan semua kaum. Hari ini, bagaimanapun, senario telah berubah. PAS tidak lagi dengan parti pembangkang. PPBM dan PAN, di sisi lain, dilihat seolah-olah tidak boleh mendapat sokongan Melayu. Jadi sekarang mereka perlu Pakatan Harapan untuk dilihat sebagai lebih Melayu supaya dapat memenangi hati pengundi Melayu.

Dan itulah sebabnya Kit Siang mahu Pribumi Mahathir untuk menyertai Pakatan Harapan. Tambahan pula, dengan ‘Mahathir Yang Zalim’ memimpin Pakatan Harapan akan membayangi ‘Kit Siang Yang Diktator’ itu. Yang akan mengalihkan kritikan daripada Kit Siang kepada Mahathir.

Mahathir, bagaimanapun, enggan untuk menyertai gabungan tersebut melainkan jika ia didaftarkan secara sah. Jika ia adalah satu gabungan yang longgar seperti pada tahun 1999, 2008 dan 2013, kemudian isu siapa Perdana Menteri ‘yang menunggu’ sudah tidak boleh ditutup. Mahathir tidak bersetuju dengan itu. Dia mahu Perdana Menteri yang menunggu dinyatakan sebelum pilihan raya. Tambahan pula, dengan gabungan secara sah berdaftar yang mempunyai bendera dan logo sendiri , semua orang akan bertanding di bawah satu identiti bersama dan pelbagai kelemahan PKR, DAP, PAN dan Pribumi boleh disembunyikan.


Sebab mengapa Mahathir tidak boleh menerima Anwar sebagai Perdana Menteri

Kit Siang tidak mempunyai apa-apa kerugian tentang hal ini. Yang penting baginya dia menjadi Timbalan Menteri Perdana Menteri dan Menteri Kewangan. Perdana Menteri sentiasa akan menjadi Melayu bagi Kit Siang. Jadi Melayu adalah berkedudukan seperti sediakala selagi jawatan Timbalan Perdana Menteri dan Menteri Kewangan menjadi miliknya.

Kesilapan yang tidak disengajakan oleh Kit Siang adalah apabila dia memberitahu orang Melayu bahawa DAP akan menjaga orang Melayu jika mereka berkuasa. Ini betul-betul apa yang Lee Kuan Yew katakan kepada pengundi Melayu pada tahun 1965. Tetapi mengapa DAP? Adakah DAP atau Pakatan Harapan akan mentadbir Malaysia? Jadi, jika Pakatan Harapan adalah yang akan memerintah Malaysia mengapa DAP yang menjamin orang Melayu bahawa mereka akan dijaga?

Memang itulah poin tepatnya. Pakatan Harapan bermakna DAP. DAP yang akan memutuskan apa Pakatan Harapan akan buat. Itulah mesej yang DAP telah hantarkan kepada rakyat Malaysia. Jadi sekarang DAP perlu melakukan ‘damage control’ dengan menonjolkan Mahathir sebagai pemimpin sebenar Pakatan Harapan, yang bermaksud bahawa Pakatan Harapan bukan lagi dikuasai DAP atau didominasi kaum Cina tetapi mempunyai wajah Melayu.

Pilihan raya umum akan datang diantara BN yang diterajui Umno melawan Pakatan pimpinan DAP tetapi Kit Siang mahu mengubahnya menjadi pertandingan Mahathir melawan Najib

Oleh itu, Siang mengamuk apabila Annuar mengelar beliau rasis. Lebih daripada 50 tahun dahulu, dia tidak peduli kerana penyokong DAP hanya pengundi Cina. Hari ini ianya telah berubah. DAP perlu menunjukkan imej yang lebih Melayu dan mesra dengan Mahathir sebagai wajah Melayu DAP yang sepatutnya membantu Pakatan Harapan menambah kerusi daripada hanya 70 kerusi, mereka berharap, sekurang-kurangnya 120.

Dengan kadar meletak jawatan sekarang ini, Kit Siang juga sensitif mengenai panggilan diktator. Tetapi apa yang anda panggil seseorang telah dapat mengekalkan kuasa selama 51 tahun dan yang telah dipecat atau ditolak keluar beratus-ratus pemimpin DAP untuk lebih daripada 30 tahun sejak tahun 1980-an?

Bagaimanapun, Mahathir yang terus mengulangi bahawa Kit Siang adalah rasis dan diktator dan salah seorang daripada mereka yang menyebabkan peristiwa 13 Mei itu. Jika Kit Siang tidak gembira tentang itu beliau perlu menyaman Mahathir kerana Mahathir tidak pernah menarik balik dakwaannya atau memohon maaf kerana memanggil beliau perkauman dan diktator.

Dan adakah Kit Siang masih mahu menangkap Mahathir kemudian campakkan dia ke dalam penjara untuk sepanjang hidupnya jika Pakatan Harapan mendapat kuasa seperti apa yang Kit Siang menjanjikan kepada kita? Jika tidak, Kit Siang perlu memberitahu pengundi bahawa beliau dan DAP telah memberikan Mahathir pengampunan dari semua jenayah.

"Berfikir tanpa kotak"

Ar Ra'isul Mutakallim, Tabligh Ki Zabaan (Lidah Tabligh) Hadrat Maulana Umar Palanpuri Rahmatullahu 'alaihi berkata: "Orang yang kuat adalah orang yang sanggup bertahan dalam arus kerosakan. Orang yang lebih kuat adalah orang yang sanggup melawan arus kerosakan. Namun orang yang paling kuat adalah orang yang sanggup merubah arah arus kerosakan hingga menjadi akannya arus kebaikan.”

“Dajjal bersama tenteranya mempunyai kekuatan yang amat istimewa dan amat tersusun. Begitu juga Yakjuj dan Makjuj membuat huru-hara di seluruh dunia. Kehebatan mereka tiada siapa yang dapat melawan dan orang beriman berundur dengan hanya makan zikir dan tasbih."

"Allah zahirkan kudratnya hanya dengan labah-labah yang kecil dijadikan asbab untuk menggigit tengkuk-tengkuk mereka hingga mati. Mayat mereka begitu busuk diseluruh dunia. Orang beriman tidak tahan terus berdoa pada Allah. Allah ta'ala hantarkan hujan dan banjir menghanyutkan mereka ke laut. Inilah yang akan berlaku di akhir zaman nanti."

"Amalan dakwah memisahkan hak dan batil seperti air menghanyutkan sampah dari emas dan logam-logam yang lain. Namun pekerja² agama jika wujud cinta dunia dalam hati mereka seperti emas dan disaluti logam-logam lain, maka banyak masalah yang akan timbul.”
