Khairy Jamaluddin - Working to Provide Stewardship.

It is common knowledge these days that Khairy Jamaluddin’s most notorious enemies are not outside the party, but rather are made up of individuals within the party.

The Party President who seems hell bent on gaining support back for UMNO is being sabotaged by these individuals on many fronts, individuals whose only interest is to replace KJ with their candidate of choice as Ketua Pemuda, they are equally hell bent on dogging KJ everywhere he goes and making sure that he fails in bringing back support for UMNO and the Barisan Nasional, adding to Datuk Seri Najib’s growing headaches.

These self-absorbed critics fail to realize that the reality is that their candidates are not those of the younger generation who want too see a new breed of leaders who provide stewardship rather than those who can only lead or be led by the nose kind of politicians.

The reality is that these guys who aspire and work hard to bring down one of their own are actually individuals who have no love for the party. They wait for opportunities to whack KJ without any consideration for the damage they wreck on the party.

The current obsession among this group of saboteurs of UMNO and KJ is to attempt to paint KJ as working hand in glove with the opposition. They try to paint this picture by alluding to the issues that KJ has been championing for example the setting of Royal Commission and a review of the ISA. All issues I might point out which has been well received by Dato Seri Najib.

We live in the 21st century, where worldwide there is a longing for politicians who are able to rise to the occasion and go beyond party boundaries when required and when the need is urgent.
Dato Seri Najib recognizes this and why political parties worldwide are changing to respond to the growing number of young people who want to affect the political system. These young people want to see politicians who are able to do and say the rights things and not just follow the party line.

These young people have a different set of ‘KPI’s’ from which they judge a politician, and party loyalty is not top of the list.

It must be pointed out with all honesty that these young people are not in UMNO yet and they certainly do not think like the present batch of UMNO youth types, I am talking about the growing youth bank vote which does not want political parties to abuse the power they have through legislation like the ISA, youths who do not want to see government agencies abused for political expediency and many issues which today are championed more by the opposition that by parties in the BN.

Khairy Jamaluddin to a certain extent has tried to reach out to these youth but is acutely aware of his enemies within who because of their old school thinking and ulterior motive are trying their best from stopping him by hook or by crook.

Non-partisan politics is a common feature of most developed countries. It is not surprising that here in Malaysia these anti-KJ types cannot fathom the need to be non-partisan when the need is urgent.

Khairy Jamaluddin - My Idol.

Khairy Jamaluddin – My Idol.

It is hard to say exactly when I first met or heard the name Khairy Jamaluddin. But it was quite early in 2000. When he was battling harmful verbal gestures by… you know who.

I was an early joiner of UMNO through a UMNO Youth Division and State Chief by invitation due to flaws by some opposites.

At that time, I followed Khairy Jamaluddin’s moves avidly. Newspapers and the online media had extensive coverage of his whereabouts although they tried to wane his popularity as it became clear his rivals (the opposition party) was coming for defeat.

As I improved my knowledge on politics and/or leadership, I have always seen Khairy Jamaluddin as an example.

Having won an important role in the country, it is with great importance that the youth will be able to understand certain criteria within the laws and at the same time try to change youth’s destiny. Whether history will repeat itself, depends on the people of the country, all he can do is to try to advice and set new ‘software’s’ to fit in the current ‘hardware’ which has already been done by previous premiers.

At the peak now in Pemuda UMNO Malaysia, even former adversaries have to admire his way. Within Barisan Nasional, top leaders have analyzed his victory in the recent Pemilihan.

Someone suggested that he gained the upper hand with a ‘queen move’ to which I always reply that it is faith that took him there.

By now the once strong rival of Khairy Jamaluddin has been mum over his victory, setting the record that the ‘Youth for Youth’ point was as honest and suitable to the best.

I am often asked if I ever had the chance or opportunity to ride beside or discuss certain issues with Khairy Jamaluddin. The answer is no, I never had the opportunity.

But even though it is within his knowledge of my existence in Pemuda UMNO and me being a strong supporter of his, I hope to soon have the chance to thank him for all the good things he has done for the Youth of the nation.

The biggest slap of all time was when a quote was proven right during the race for the Ketua Pemuda UMNO seat, professionals built the titanic, amateurs built the ark.

The people of Rembau entrusted Khairy Jamaluddin to be their representative and their voice, and in reply, as a Muslim, this is what he posted in his Facebook page:
Allah doth command you to render back your Trusts to those to whom they are due; And when ye judge between man and man, that ye judge with justice: Verily how excellent is the teaching which He giveth you! For Allah is He Who heareth and seeth all things.
(An-Nisa: 58) (سورة النساء: ٥٨)

How I wish that my Idol, Khairy Jamaluddin could have been for us, for Langkawi.

There are many ways to see him in the best possible way. For me, I see him as a leader and my Idol.

Sameer Khan.

Husin Lempoyang??


Saya menulis artikel ini bukan kerana saya marah dengan blogger Husin Lempoyang, saya menulis artikel ini kerana saya kesian kat dia dan orang-orang yang bersekutu denganya.
Sebenarnya beliau mempunyai simptom penyakit psikologi dalam bahasa Inggerisnys disebut sebagai masalah diri yang cuba di ‘project’ kepada orang lain.

"Projection is the most profound and subtle of our psychological processes, and extremely difficult to work with, because by its nature, it is hidden. It is the fundamental mechanism by which we keep our selves uninformed about ourselves. Humor has great value in any attempt to work with projection, because humor presents a forgiving posture and thereby removes the threatening nature of any enquiry into the truth" - (Wikipedia).

Nak pendekkan cerita, beliau mengunakan teknik jenaka dalam tulisannya untuk menyembunyikan masalah dirinya sendiri, dan masalah ini dilantun kepada orang lain. Maknanya ‘projection’ ini akan lebih berjaya jika dicampur dengan elemen jenaka.

Jadi jika beliau banyak merujuk kepada bahagian sulit seseorang, sebenarnya beliau kemungkinan besar sedang mengalami masalah dengan bahagian sulitnya sendiri. Dalam tulisan beliau "Khasiat telor setengah masak sama kicap dan lada sula" beliau cuba melantun masalah bahagian sulit yang kecil beliau dan sikap pondannya yang berselindung dibelakang nama samaran kepada orang lain seperti Khairy Jamaluddin.

Penulis blogger seperti Husin Lempoyang dan kawan-kawannya tidak boleh kita ubah dengan mengutuk atau dibalas dengan dengan apa cara sekalipun. Mereka tidak akan berubah dan tidak akan faham, sebab mereka besar kemungkinan sedang mengalami masalah mental dan mereka hanya boleh dirawat melalui kaedah psikologi.

Saya menyarankan ahli-ahli KJFC supaya tidak menghabiskan masa dan tenaga untuk menjawab atau bermusuhan dengan beliau. Anggap sahaja ini bukan cara orang Islam menulis untuk mengaibkan seorang lagi yang beragama Islam. Balasannya kelak hanya Tuhan yang boleh tentukan. Jika benar beliau sakit, selamatlah beliau, kalau tidak….
Anggap sahaja Husin ini membuang masa sahaja menulis bendan yang tak berfaedah, bagi saya beza antara sebuah Unta dan Husin Lempoyang ialah,

Unta lebih berguna…… (from Stephen Doss)

I don't know why, each time I read an article by Husin Lempoyang and try to imagine his face, flashes of a cow come in front of me..... why??
