"Let it be known that your hostile policies have created a new world of enemies who will fight against you, and the earth is narrowing around you and you will always live the life of all bitterness and sorrow, because the policy of force and tyranny cannot and will not be accepted by anyone." – Mullah Mohammed Omar

Insan dan Manikam
Pencipta: M. Nasir (lagu), Loloq (lirik)
Album: Saudagar Mimpi
Ya insan yang hadir
Ku isytiharkan dengan hati terbuka
Ya insan yang daif
Manikam yang di sangkakan
Bukan yang asli
Hanya seiras dan serupa
Ya insan yang hagas
Maya yang indah
Angin yang membawa berita
Pancaindera yang memang lemah
Pak tua menangis sendiri
Mengenangkan nasib diri
Walaupun puas mencari
Namun belum ketemui
Cik Buyung riang selalu
Damai dan senang hati
Walaupun tak berusaha
Alam yang membawa cerita
Pancaindera yang memang lemah

Artist: M. Nasir Album: Saudagar Mimpi
Senja memanggil pulang sang pegembara
Melihat keperitan zaman pencarian
perjuangan dulu hanyalah ujian
Untuk menghadapi perang yang utama
hanyalah diriku sendiri
dan hidayah selama ini
hanya engkau yang ku dambakan
dan semoga sejahteralah
engkau pada ku
dan tanpa mu apalah aku
apalah aku tanpa hidayah
senja memanggil pulang sang penggembara
melihat keperitan zaman pencarian

'Before beginning my talk I want to tell you something about Moses. When he struck the rock and it brought forth water, he thought, 'What a good opportunity to have a bath!'
He removed his clothes, put them aside on the rock and entered the water. When he got out and wanted to dress, his clothes had vanished. An Israeli had stolen them.'
The Israeli representative jumped up furiously and shouted, 'What are you talking about? The Israelis weren't there then.
The Palestinian representative smiled and said: 'And now that we have made that clear, I will begin my speech.'

• “Changing party is a normal thing in a parliamentary democracy. Winston Churchill changed parties twice. In the United States, a Republican Senator recently crossed over to become a Democrat Senator. It is not unconstitutional to do so and it is also not illegal.” — Datuk Seri Najib Razak
Err, sorry Mr Prime Minister, you are comparing apples and oranges here. It is an insult to speak of Winston Churchill and Arlen Specter in the same breath as Hee Yit Foong, Osman Jailu and Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi.
Churchill was arguably the greatest war-time prime minister. In 1904 he joined the Liberal party because he disagreed with the revived protectionism among some elements of the Tory party. Twenty years later he severed ties with liberalism and joined the Conservative party. But even while in the Tory movement, he was dead set against its policies on defence and imperialism.
Arlen Specter was a Democrat when he was young but decided to join the Republican party and became one of America’s best known and most influential senators on its ticket. Several weeks ago, he joined the Democrats, saying that his philosophy had moved closer to that of Obama’s party.
Both men had something in common — they were/are viewed as standout politicians who only crossed the aisle for political ideology. Their actions did not cause the fall of their governments. Nor did they disappear from the scene only to surface a few days later with implausible stories.
Now let us touch on Messrs Osman, Jamaluddin and Hee. Osman and Jamaluddin have no political track record to speak off. Oh but they do have something in common — a corruption charge hanging over their heads. The subterfuge surrounding their defection and their feeble performance since only suggests that their decision to cross over was not anchored on political ideology.
In Hee’s case, she is on record as saying that she was dissatisfied at her second-class status in the DAP. Not once did the trio ever give the impression that they were defecting to preserve their political beliefs or dignity.
So Mr Prime Minister, bad comparison. Also, many Malaysians view the Perak power grab as illegal and unconstitutional not because of the actions of three unknowns but because of the cavalier manner in which the Federal Constitution has been treated by some of our institutions.
• “In the running of a democracy we cannot allow the tyranny of the minority to decide for the majority.” — Datuk Abdul Zambry Kadir
So true. That is why the task of electing a state government must always be in the hands of the rakyat, the majority. And when there is a deadlock in the House or a question arises whether a government has the authority and legitimacy to rule, it must be the electorate that unties that knot. What more when Malaysia professes to be a constitutional democracy.
• "I don't want to get involved in this. I just want to give my speech, so respect my speech, when I am giving it. You understand that? If you want to work with me in future, you have to respect my speech. Understand?” — Raja Nazrin Shah
Too late. It was way too late for the Regent of Perak to say that he did not want any part in the fracas in the state assembly. What happened on May 7 did not materialise out of nowhere. It did not happen in a vacuum.
The tug-of-war for power in Perak was a natural consequence of a refusal by the Sultan of Perak to dissolve the assembly and allow Perakians to decide who should represent them.
Respect has to be earned, even if you are next in line to the throne.
Admonishing the very lawmakers who many Malaysians feel are the victims in this saga is not a good start.
• “Hati mereka ada hantu.” — Hee Yit Foong
The press corps had a field day covering Hee yesterday. She had difficulty speaking fluently in Bahasa Malaysia or English, and she looked out of her depth. But that is not her fault. Lay the blame on the people who fielded her as a candidate in Jelapang, who did not put her through a thorough screening process and who did not bother to find out whether she could communicate with her constituents. Blame the DAP.
First half goals from Cristiano Ronaldo (18') and the Argentine (45') on Sunday saw the Red Devils take a giant stride toward the title and reclaim the top spot with three games in hand.
United has 83 points from 35 games. Liverpool stands second with 80 points from 36 games.
The decisive victory in the Manchester derby leaves the defending champions needing only four points to lift the trophy for the third year in a row, CNN reported. The Reds can well secure the title before Liverpool even plays another game.
Scoring his 14th Premiership goal of a season in which he has made just 17 starts, Tevez, whose future at United is in doubt, underlined his feelings with his manner of celebration.
Tevez cupped his hands to his ears as he ran down the touchline while the United faithful chanted "Fergie, Fergie sign him up."
The 25-year-old has established himself as a clear favorite with the Red Devils and their fans for his all-action style.
The Argentine won Sir Alex Ferguson's admiration for his performance in United's dramatic win over Tottenham Hotspur. Tevez came on for Nani in the second half to help the Reds swap a 0-2 first-half defeat with a 5-2 full-time victory.
