'If you meant transformation, why say jihad?'

YOURSAY 'Can you retrieve your saliva after spitting? We have been hearing too much of this nonsense once too often.'

I want transformation, not war, clarifies ex-judge

your sayAbasir: Former Court of Appeal judge Mohd Noor Abdullah, first you incite, now you lie. Please ‘jihad' yourself before asking others to do so.

You have now earned a reputation as an opportunistic racist rabble rouser, much like the political lowlifes and 'defenders of the race' who lost miserably in Shah Alam and Pasir Mas.

Anonymous #42402094: If you cannot stand by what you said, then do not open your mouth. Don't try to be a hero. Everyone understood what you said.

You have shown scant regard for the delicate racial balance just to please your political masters. Such men as these do not have any moral or ethical calibre. They should withdraw from the public sphere.

Donplaypuks: As an ex-Court of Appeals judge, he should have known that when he used the word ‘jihad', it would be construed in only one sense i.e. holy war.

If he meant "transformation" why didn't he use it, instead of "jihad"? Or clarify it there and then? We all know what his racist speech actually meant, so stop trying to kid us.

What!!!???: Can you retrieve your saliva after spitting? We have been hearing too much of this nonsense once too often.

Dark Archon: Doesn't his back pedaling now sound like someone we're familiar with? New Defence Minister Hishammuddin Hussein now comes to mind.

Not to mention many Umno bigwigs who, after spewing hatred, then said they were "misquoted". Whatever Mohd Noor had said will not be forgotten. He'll be remembered as a racist from now on.

TehTarik: You are supposed to be a judge. As a lawyer cum judge, you are supposed to be trained to voice your opinion using words with great deliberation and wisdom.

More than any other profession, you are defined by your words. And it is here that you have failed miserably. Your words lack wisdom, and are more akin to a hate speech, oblivious to the sensitivities of other races.

Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim was absolutely right when he said that you sounded more like Adolf Hitler and the Ku Klux Klan.

Gerard Lourdesamy: Mohd Noor's idea of transformation is for all the rakyat to only vote Umno-BN to perpetuate ‘Ketuanan Melayu', corruption and abuse of power.

How can the Chinese who only make up less than 26 percent of the population aspire to take political power when the establishment is more than 90 percent Malay dominated?

The Pakatan policy document which the DAP signed expressly preserves the position of the rulers, Islam, Bahasa Malaysia and the special status of the Malays and natives of Sabah and Sarawak.

Do you think that PAS and PKR being Malay/Muslim dominated would allow DAP to take away Malay political power even if the Pakatan had won the elections?

If the Malays have yet to achieve the New Economic Policy (NEP) targets, is the DAP to blame when Umno has been in power continuously for 56 years? The failure of the NEP is due to the greed of Umno and its cronies. It has nothing to do with the Chinese.

Lim Chong Leong: "The Chinese betrayal towards the Malay's hand of friendship - that is true. Because they plotted to seize political power even though they already have economic power.

"For the Malays, the pantang larang (taboo) is to be betrayed, because when they are betrayed, they will react and when they react, their dendam kesumat tidak tersudah-sudah (wrath will be endless)," Mohd Noor had said.

So what has this got to do with transformation? This is nothing but pure unadulterated racial incitement.

The former judge should be stripped of all privileges of his former office like pension, etc. Then he should be charged. All his cases should immediately be reviewed for racist tendencies.

Not Confused: True to form over the past five years, PM Najib Razak, despite his desperate attempts to persuade us that he is PM for all Malaysians and he does not promote racial divisions, he will of course make no comment on this imbecile of an ex-judge.

It is same old, same old - nothing will change. This cretin will join the continuing list of rabid racists fomenting discord between the races and trying to scare the Malays.

Sorry pal, your game is up. No one is seriously listening to people of your ilk any longer.

Ferdtan: "Like me, I care for race, my children, my grandchildren, my descendants and all Malaysians." said Mohd Noor.
If you really care for all Malaysians you wouldn't have asked for a fight. You are pitting one race against another; the Malays against the Chinese.

However, we have good Malays among the PKR and PAS (no one in Umno except Saifuddin Abdullah who spoke for the non-Malays) who voiced out support for the beleaguered Chinese voters blamed for the BN's huge loss in the recent general election.

In the post-polls rally in Johor, PAS central committee member Dr Hatta Ramli reminded Umno and its extremists not to ‘kacau' (cause trouble) our Chinese friends. He said that they can do that over his dead body. What more can we ask of another Malaysian?

The common Malays, Chinese and Indians have no problem with one another; it is the Umno which tried to divide us. Any comment, PM of 1Malaysia?

Hamisu: Mohd Noor, I strongly agree with you to be given another chance. First of all, get a balanced crowd of say about 5,000 people consisting of Malays, Chinese, Indians, Kadazan, etc.

Repeat what you have uttered in that forum. I wonder how many will not mistake your statements as being racist. Only after that, clarify what you meant.

Ahmad Said Mohd Noor is a racist by any other name. Don't make excuses now that you have been caught out. You could at least have apologised for your racist statements.
