‘DBNA has been unfairly blamed’ By Churchill Edward

(Source: Borneo post 25/06/2008)

KUCHING: The Dayak Bidayuh National Association (DBNA) has been unfairly blamed for not being strong enough in getting Mas Gading MP Datuk Dr Tiki to remain in the federal cabinet, an official of the association said yesterday.
Its vice-president Jameson Ahip Nawie told The Borneo Post this when asked to elaborate on a certain statement contained in a DBNA press release issued here yesterday.
“The community has blamed us (DBNA) for not being strong enough to support Dr Tiki. But how can we say much on the appointment when we are just volunteers (NGO)?” he said when contacted.
(Appointment of members of the federal cabinet is the prerogative of the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi following recommendations by political parties forming the government.)
Ahip clarified that the press statement did not suggest what he personally thought of Dr Tiki but disclosed what the Bidayuh community had thought about DBNA over the community’s non-representation in the federal cabinet.
He also rejected the suggestion that Abdullah was annoyed with DBNA to the extent that he dropped Dr Tiki from his cabinet.
“We are just saying (in the press release) that the community has blamed DBNA. But it is unfair,” he said without telling possible reasons why Dr Tiki was dropped by Abdullah from his cabinet. As a result, the community lost what looks to be their only chance (through Dr Tiki) to be represented in the federal cabinet.
Dr Tiki’s first federal cabinet post was as Deputy Minister of Unity and National Integration before being appointed Deputy Minister of Rural and Regional Development.
An MP for Mas Gading since he got elected in the 1999 parliamentary election, Dr Tiki is currently Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) vice-president.
SPDP has recommended his name along with four others on the party list of potential candidates for either senator or deputy minister post. However two other MPs were appointed while another party member was appointed senator.
In yesterday’s press release, aimed at announcing DBNA’s forthcoming triennial delegates’ conference (TDC), Ahip said the association had been put under tremendous pressure to play a more active role in articulating the welfare and interests of the community.
According to the press release, the pressure is being felt more now because the community has also blamed DBNA for the decision of the Prime Minister to drop Dr Tiki - the first Bidayuh MP in the federal cabinet - from his (Abdullah) present cabinet.
“The delegates’ conference is being held against the backdrop that the association is being put under tremendous pressure to play a more active role in articulating the welfare and interests of the community.
“For example, the association was partly blamed for the decision of the Prime Minister to drop Datuk Dr Tiki Lafe, MP for Mas Gading and former Deputy Minister of Rural and Regional Development from his present cabinet,” Ahip said.
Despite the political “backdrop”, some DBNA members interviewed were happy with the present central executive committee (CEC) led by civil servant Ik Pahon Joyik. Pahon is permanent secretary to the Ministry of Social Development and Urbanisation.
They are particularly happy with the CEC for its ability to raise funds to renovate the headquarters building and upgrade its facilities, he said.
The TDC, themed ‘Building a more progressive and industrious Bidayuh community towards 2020 and beyond’, will be officiated by Environment and Public Health Minister Datuk Michael Manyin Jawong. Manyin, also chief advisor of DBNA, will be giving a keynote address on the first day of the TDC, Ahip pointed out.
“Most consider the current CEC as the most active since its bumper years in the mid-70s and 80s,” he said.
Ahip, who is also TDC secretariat 2008 coordinator, said the TDC will be held on June 28 and 29 at its headquarters here.
The two-day TDC will be attended by delegates and observers from the association’s 21 divisions, including the newly formed Klang Valley division. The TDC would consider various motions and resolutions pertaining to the welfare and interests of the community, Ahip added.

Strike on Iran likely

WASHINGTON — Israel carried out a major military exercise earlier this month that American officials say appeared to be a rehearsal for a potential bombing attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities.
Several American officials said the Israeli exercise appeared to be an effort to develop the military’s capacity to carry out long-range strikes and to demonstrate the seriousness with which Israel views Iran’s nuclear program.
More than 100 Israeli F-16 and F-15 fighters participated in the maneuvers, which were carried out over the eastern Mediterranean and over Greece during the first week of June, American officials said.
The exercise also included Israeli helicopters that could be used to rescue downed pilots. The helicopters and refueling tankers flew more than 900 miles, which is about the same distance between Israel and Iran’s uranium enrichment plant at Natanz, American officials said.
Israeli officials declined to discuss the details of the exercise. A spokesman for the Israeli military would say only that the country’s air force “regularly trains for various missions in order to confront and meet the challenges posed by the threats facing Israel.”
But the scope of the Israeli exercise virtually guaranteed that it would be noticed by American and other foreign intelligence agencies. A senior Pentagon official who has been briefed on the exercise, and who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the political delicacy of the matter, said the exercise appeared to serve multiple purposes.
One Israeli goal, the Pentagon official said, was to practice flight tactics, aerial refueling and all other details of a possible strike against Iran’s nuclear installations and its long-range conventional missiles.
A second, the official said, was to send a clear message to the United States and other countries that Israel was prepared to act militarily if diplomatic efforts to stop Iran from producing bomb-grade uranium continued to falter.
“They wanted us to know, they wanted the Europeans to know, and they wanted the Iranians to know,” the Pentagon official said. “There’s a lot of signaling going on at different levels.”
Several American officials said they did not believe that the Israeli government had concluded that it must attack Iran and did not think that such a strike was imminent
One of the long-running debates here in Jerusalem is whether or not the US and Israel are preparing the ground for a military strike on Iran.
There is vast disagreement here on this issue - and there are no easy answers.
But wheels are in motion.
As McClatchy reported last week, Israel has been laying the psychological foundations for a strike on Iran.
While this doesn't mean that an Israeli strike on Iran is imminent, it does show that Israel's warnings are not simply Pyhrric saber rattling.
"It should not surprise anyone that we are training and preparing operationally for this, and it should not in any way be interpreted as we're going to strike Iran," Israeli analyst Yossi Alpher of Bitterlemons told me this morning.
Maybe not.
But plans are cleary being fine-tuned.
What remains to be seen is what impact these actions will have on the diplomatic moves to contain Iran's nuclear ambitions.
The Israeli threats and military training may all be part of an effort to compel Europe, the US and the IAEA to treat the Iranian nuclear issue with more urgency.

Petrol for more 'Ayoh'

Fuel price hike! Ayoh....

Everyone will say 'Ayoh' this time and i am very pretty lucky by toping up mine full tank before. So, the new subsidy for Petrol will be RM2.70 per liter and Diesel will be RM2.58 per liter. It will be reviewed in the Parliment every month as said but for whatsoever reason, the blame was, government was subsidising Petrol and Gas for about 53 billion Riggit every year. Another statement we heard was to eradicating black market of oil smuggling to other countries. 'Ayoh' again because it will make the enforcement authorities to sleep.

Today, I checked up the prizes of good in the supermarket. Very petty 'Ayoh' again. The salesgirl was busy putting up the new tag for some of the goods as adviced by their 'towkays'. Controlled item like sugar was taken out the shelfs. The most fascinating was my favourite "Beras wangi Thailand" grade AAA was tagged at RM56.00 for 10 Kg. Ayoh.

For us Bidayuh, no such worry. Since we have voted BN for the last 12 general election, why worry so much. We let those Malays fight with their counterparts Malay. They will also fight with those Chinese and I do not want Datuk Tiki Lafe or any of those three stoogers to raise the issue of price hike. Let those people fight among themselves and when the bull fight, why must sang kancil go in beween and get hurted. I have reason for my own since i knew those question and for pretty sure, I knew the answer.
I have access to some other website and why we have to worry about this tidal phenomena between us. Not so much again. We have just completed our Gawai celebration and thus, we should consume much of our Paddy until finished and by July, the new season of planting begin and to whatever reasons, we should not worry so much. Ayohh because some are still worried.

The new hike was telling us the new begining. It was the falldown of the whole system. The administration of Ahmad and Najib was a weak combination. They are uncapable of managing the resources. Our money will start to devaluate not by speculation but due to their action. Prices of good will shoot up and when the turn comes, we wil be second to Indonesia and everyone laugh.
