Jeffrey Kitingan 'anti-Malaysia'

Posted: 05 Mar 2014 09:02 PM PST

More political leaders from Sabah and Sarawak are making 'threatening calls' for Putrajaya to honour the 1963 Malaysia Agreement or let both Borneo states free!

Latest was Jeffrey Kitingan who claimed that both states have been marginalised in terms of development and assistance by the central government, and that Kuala Lumpur have been 'raping and exploiting' Sabah and Sarawak of its wealth and oil revenue, something which he described as intolerable.

Once detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) over suspicion of trying to secede Sabah from Malaysia, I believe Jeffrey has forgotten what 'Sabah is for Sabahans' slogan means to the people of Sarawak and the Peninsula. He himself supports it!
A leading Sabah politician has warned Putrajaya to fulfil the Malaysia Agreement of 1963 or allow Sabah and Sarawak to go their separate ways from the Malay peninsula.
STAR Sabah chief Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan (pic) said Sabah and Sarawak are among the poorest states in the country and marginalised in development allocations.
"The downgrading of Sabah and Sarawak as the 12th and 13th states in Malaysia is contrary to what was intended in 1963 as equal partners.
"The continuation of the rape and pillage of Sabah and Sarawak's oil wealth and revenues and marginalisation in development allocations can no longer be condoned.
"Even in times of need, the people of Sabah and Sarawak are treated shabbily and not equal to other Malaysians in the peninsula," he said, commenting on what Chief Justice Tun Arifin Zakaria had written on Sabah and Sarawak's roles in the formation of Malaysia in Arifin's recently launched book "The Constitutional Rights of Sabah and Sarawak".
"The Malaysia Agreement needs to be implemented and fulfilled," Kitingan said.
"Not only have the terms and conditions of the formation of Malaysia as contained in the 1963 agreement and the various documents and verbal assurances and promises not been complied with, there were numerous constitutional amendments which eroded the special rights and position of Sabah and Sarawak."
He said the leaders of the "two nations need to focus and speak with one voice".
The common stand of Malaysia's Borneo states should be in no uncertain terms, he added.
"Any other stand will give the Malayan federal leaders the wrong assumption and presumption that Sabah and Sarawak are not serious in their demands for the terms of the formation of Malaysia to be complied with.
"They will continue to remain comfortable in their high offices in Putrajaya and do not care for Sabahans and Sarawakians until it is time for elections."
Kitingan also spoke of the promise Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had made to the Barisan Nasional (BN) partners in Sarawak that there would be a cabinet reshuffle after the Umno general assembly in early December 2013.
The reshuffle was to accommodate members of parliament from Sarawak whose parties were dissatisfied with the distribution of ministerial posts after last year's general elections.
"Najib failed to undertake the cabinet reshuffle," he said.
Earlier this year, he warned Sarawakians to watch out for Umno and do anything possible to bar its entry into the state after Taib Mahmud steps down as chief minister.

A 'political frog' himself, he also accused Umno (which he applied to join in 2003 but was rejected) of ripping Sabah PBS apart in 1994, he said the Federal has full control of Sabah - from its administration to immigration, customs and others.
KUCHING: Against wildfire rumours that Sarawak Chief Minister Taib Mahmud will be stepping down next month,  Sabah's Bingkor assemblyman Jeffrey Kitingan has warned Sarawakians to be wary of Umno.
Recalling the ousting of then strong  Party Bersatu Sabah (PBS) in 1994 resulting in the entry of Umno, Kitingan said: "People of Sarawak must learn from mistakes made by Sabah.
"Sabah is now fully controlled by the federal government that is controlled by Umno.
"Don't gamble with the future of this country by allowing the entry of Umno."
He admitted that Sabah was in a very bad situation.
"Everything is dominated by the federal government, including immigration and illegal immigrants. Sabah people have no control any more, " he said when met here.
He said if Sarawak allows Umno in, then the state and its people will lose everything.
I think he will be comfortable if Sabah joins Indonesia or the Philippines... or shall we have a referendum if the majority of Sabahans support his notion?

GCC splits over Qatar

Posted: 05 Mar 2014 05:49 PM PST

Hostility grows among members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) yesterday when Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain withdrew their ambassadors from Qatar in an unprecedented split between the Gulf Arab allies who have fallen out over political turmoil shaking the Middle East.

Qatar's cabinet voiced 'regret and surprise' at the decision by GCC counterparts but said Doha would not pull out its own envoys in response and that it remained committed to 'the security and stability' of the pact.

The move escalated an internal power struggle over foreign policy in the GCC, which also includes Kuwait and Oman, and represents a significant challenge for Qatar's young ruler months after he took power.

A pro-Western alliance of absolute monarchies, the GCC was set up in the 1980s as a counterweight to Iranian influence in the Gulf, and includes several of the world's biggest oil and gas producers and exporters.

Saudi Arabia, the biggest GCC state by population, size and economy, has grown increasingly frustrated over recent years at the efforts of Qatar, a country of just 2 million, to leverage its large wealth from gas exports into regional clout.

Qatar's stock market tumbled 2.3 per cent after Wednesday's announcement. There is significant cross-border investment in the stock markets of GCC countries by investors from other GCC nations; Saudi investors play a major role in all GCC markets.

The statement follows two years of efforts by Saudi Arabia to build a closer union between the GCC countries on foreign and security policy in an effort to cement a united front against what it sees as Iranian aggression.

However, Gulf analysts and diplomats say it is too early to cast doubts on the ability of the GCC to hold together, pointing towards previous disagreements between member states that were later settled. Many GCC members have decades-old border disputes with each other, but efforts to resolve them are normally pursued without any apparent acrimony.

Qatar has been a maverick in the conservative region of royal dynasties, backing Islamist movements in Egypt, Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East that are viewed with suspicion or outright hostility by some fellow GCC members.

Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, in his early 30s, said when he succeeded his father in June 2013 that Qatar would not 'take direction' in foreign affairs, suggesting he would continue Doha's assertive, independent-minded foreign policy.

Saudi Arabia and the UAE are fuming especially over Qatar's support for the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist movement whose political ideology challenges the principle of dynastic rule, and by its playing host to its spiritual leader Yusuf Qaradawi.

The statement said GCC members had signed an agreement on Nov. 23 not to back "anyone threatening the security and stability of the GCC whether as groups or individuals - via direct security work or through political influence, and not to support hostile media".

Saudi and other Gulf Arab officials, as well as leaders of the military-backed government in Egypt, often complain about Qatar's al Jazeera satellite TV station, which they see as being openly supportive of the Brotherhood and critical of their governments. Al Jazeera says it is an independent news service giving a voice to everyone in the region.

Egyptian airport sources said on Wednesday Qatari citizens would be subject to additional security screening measures "to make sure that they are not involved in hostile acts against Egypt, either through the media or business". They said Qatari diplomats and special passport holders could not now enter Egypt without visas, applying the principle of reciprocity.

The Saudi-UAE-Bahraini statement said GCC foreign ministers had met in Riyadh on Tuesday to try to persuade Qatar to implement the agreement.

"But unfortunately, these efforts did not result in Qatar's agreement to abide by these measures, which prompted the three countries to start what they saw as necessary, to protect their security and stability, by withdrawing their ambassadors from Qatar starting from today, March 5 2014," the statement said.

Qatar's foreign ministry said it would respond later.

'No planes hit Twin Towers!'

Posted: 05 Mar 2014 03:52 AM PST

The US will have to rebut or accept the statement as truth!

A former CIA and civilian pilot has sworn an affidavit, stating that no planes flew into the Twin Towers as it would have been physically impossible.

John Lear, the son of Learjet inventor, Bill Lear, has given his expert evidence that it would have been physically impossible for Boeing 767s, like Flights AA11 and UA175 to have hit the Twin Towers on 9/11, particularly when flown by inexperienced pilots:

"No Boeing 767 airliners hit the Twin Towers as fraudulently alleged by the government, media, NIST and its contractors', he stated in the affidavit.

"Such crashes did not occur because they are physically impossible as depicted, for the following reasons: in the case of UAL 175 going into the south tower, a real Boeing 767 would have begun 'telescoping' when the nose hit the 14 inch steel columns which are 39 inches on center.

"The vertical and horizontal tail would have instantaneously separated from the aircraft, hit the steel box columns and fallen to the ground".
  • The fan portion of the engine is not designed to accept the volume of dense air at that altitude and speed.
  • The piece of alleged external fuselage containing 3 or 4 window cutouts is inconsistent with an airplane that hit 14 inch steel box columns, placed at over 500 mph.  It would have crumpled.
  • No significant part of the Boeing 767 or engine could have penetrated the 14 inch steel columns and 37 feet beyond the massive core of the tower without part of it falling to the ground.
He added, the engines when impacting the steel columns would have maintained their general shape and either fallen to the ground or been recovered in the debris of the collapsed building.

"No Boeing 767 could attain a speed of 540 mph at 1000 feet above sea level 'parasite drag doubles with velocity' and 'parasite power' cubes with velocity.

"The debris of the collapse should have contained massive sections of the Boeing 767, including 3 engine cores weighing approximately 9000 pounds apiece which could not have been hidden. Yet there is no evidence of any of these massive structural components from either 767 at the WTC. Such complete disappearance of 767s is impossible."

The affidavit, dated 28th January 2014 is part of a law suit being pursued by Morgan Reynolds in the United States District Court, Southern District, New York.

In March 2007, Reynolds, a former chief economist under the George W Bush administration filed a Request For Correction with the US National Institute of Science and Technology citing his belief that real commercial jets (Boeings) did not hit the WTC towers.

Although the 9/11 Truth movement initially rejected the 'no-planes' theory as too outlandish, after scientific and rational analysis, it has become a widely accepted explanation of the evidence collected.
