  • Malaysia views Isis as a terrorist organisation, says Wisma Putra

    Posted on August 25th, 2014 by Info@CozWeAreFriends

    Putrajaya considers the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis) to be a terrorist organisation and does not condone any of its activities, said Wisma Putra, adding that police have been weeding out members of the group as well as sympathisers.

    “It has been revealed that some Malaysians have been influenced to support Isis, joining this group of extremists to wage jihad,” Wisma Putra said in a statement released yesterday.

    “Since the beginning of the year, authorities have conducted operations to arrest Malaysians or foreigners living here who have been involved in alleged terrorism activities.”

    Wisma Putra said that Isis had caused injuries and loss of lives to innocent civilians in Iraq, and as such, Putrajaya strongly condemned the group’s actions.
    “Malaysia has called for the formation of a Global Movement of Moderates and continues to advocate moderation and tolerance.”

    Between January and June this year, Malaysian police arrested 19 people including two women for involvement in militant activities.

    Police also revealed that at least 50 Malaysians are currently believed to be in Syria, fighting alongside Isis forces.

    Wisma Putra acknowledged police concerns about the possible threats posed by Malaysian jihadists, saying Putrajaya was monitoring such activities.

    “Putrajaya has always been on the alert concerning activities and threats which could be detrimental to internal security and public order.”

    Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had previously said Umno members should emulate Isis as their spirit of defying vastly superior odds was admirable.

    Isis fighters had initially been outnumbered by Iraqi forces during their conflict but still managed to emerge triumphant.

    Wisma Putra’s statement yesterday was in response to an article published by news portal Malaysiakini entitled “Minister, who really is Isis?” on August 19.

    Wisma Putra also denied that Malaysia had paid any form of monetary compensation to Ukrainian separatists in return for the flight recorders of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17.

    “No monetary exchange had transpired for the release of MH17 flight recorders. It is important the public be made aware of this clarification.”

    While Malaysia does not believe in negotiating with terrorists or condoning such activities, the case of flight MH17 was a unique event.

    “Malaysia had no other option but to engage in negotiations with all parties in the Ukraine,” Wisma Putra said, adding that extraordinary situations called for extraordinary measures.

    “The engagement was done with the sole purpose of recovering the remains of passengers aboard flight MH17 and to recover the flight recorders,” Wisma Putra added. – August 25, 2014.

    Tips: How to become very rich in Malaysia

    Posted on May 21st, 2012 by fath

    Hi All,
    Sharing with you a very nice article on how to become very rich in Malaysia. It’s true though. It was written by P. Gunasegaram.


    If you have ever wondered how to get rich in Malaysia – fabulously rich and very quickly at that – here’s a model that you might want to look at very closely. Not easy to do but if you do have a couple of projects in the bag, it will set you up for several lifetimes.

    First you need connections – strong ones, the higher the better and if it goes right up to the top all the better. You need this because you need to convince the powers that be that your projects are good.

    But you might ask if your projects are so good, why do you need connections? Why don’t you just go out and execute? Good questions, those. Here’s the answer – you need the state to give you something to do the deal that will help the nation.

    Still can’t figure it out? See, it’s like this. You want to help the country, right? The country needs say a port. But you can’t build a port just like that. You need land to build a port. You tell the state or federal government you need land – cheap land, preferably free to build the port.

    Or to take another example, you want to help the country by building a power plant. But look, you need land too and not only that you need the power to be sold. So you want an agreement – an iron-clad one to sell the power to Tenaga Nasional and to pass through all costs.

    You see, that’s your reward as an entrepreneur – you get someone else to build the power plant, they guarantee the performance of the plant and someone else guarantees to buy your power and pay for all your costs. Nice deal? You bet. Billionaires have been made that way.

    Or you may want to start an air hub. If you are persuasive enough, you can even convince the government to compulsorily acquire the land and sell it to you cheap. Once you have cheap land, lucrative contracts and concession agreements, the sky’s the limit.

    Let’s take it a step further. If you want to realise the value of all of these things that you have and still keep control of them, it’s nice to have a listed company into which you can inject them. Inject one asset for shares and you gain control of the company.

    And then inject others over the years for cash, taking the money out of the company. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?

    Do it right and get a flow of assets to inject in (you can do anything with discounted cash flow valuations – just change the discount rate, and presto, the value changes!), and you get a tidy flow of profits and cash into your personal accounts over the years. I mean a really tidy flow.

    Just how much can you make this way, you ask? Why don’t you take a guess first? Did you say RM500mil? Guess again. RM1bil? How about five times that and you may be getting into the right order of magnitude.

    One Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Albukhary actually made some RM4.5bil that way – actually more because he still controls the listed company. (MMC’s latest RM1.7bil deal irks investors7) We are not saying he is the only one, which makes your chances of joining the ranks better – if you are connected to high places that is.

    But then again, if things change – and that’s still a big ‘if’ – you might not find it so easy anymore.
