SHAME
“The world is a dangerous place. Not because of the people who are evil; but because of the people who don’t do any thing about it.” –Albert Einstein-
One of the modus operandi of all arm suppliers and dealers in the world arms market is to give "commission" or "corruption" indirectly to the decision makers.

Payment of corruption money are done very professionally so that it does not incriminate the arms supplier, These arm suppliers will pay any amount of commission demanded as long as they are not implicated as some of them are PLC.

In this case, it will not be uncommon for, Altantuya Shaariibuu to be a nominee conduit for receiving the large amount of commission for arms deals. Her name could be used as a nominee but the funds (money laundered in Singapore and Hong Kong) received actually goes to the sexist (MISAGYNIST/WOMAN HATER) Abdul Razak Baginda/NAJIB TUN RAZAK the UMNO (NATZIS/RACISTS) pukita cronies who share in the loot. Mongolian nominees are preferred by Russian suppliers as most Mongolians speak Russian.

This Altantuya Shaariibuu relationship with Abdul Razak Baginda was obviously more than “lover” and it is crystal clear she know more than she should.

So, her explosives disintegration with C4 type episode with directives from the top. NAJIB TUN RAZAK, Rosmah, Khairy & Scomi who are involved in arms deals are clearly involved.

Who are the UMNO (XENOPHOBIC/ANTI-SEMITIC) ministers who
are going to France, Spain, Italy, and Russia & South Africa to buy arms recently?

Who are the other UMNO (MASTERS of DEATH) pukitra ministers beside Najib Tun Razak, who have visited Ulaan Baatar in the last three years??? The long and endless list of Malaysia’s international laws and human-rights violations can no longer be ignored!!!
This is an international security crisis that will be lethal to human rights world peace and safety.
The International community must demand a multi-national investigation on to the ASSASSINATION of Translator/Interpreter & Business women Altantuya Shaariibuu along with the Malaysia’s illegal arms trade! Mongolia must break all diplomatic relations with Malaysia and state this case to the INTERNATIONAL COURT of JUSTICE alert and demand the United Nations Security Council to take action and that The United States’ State Deportment to also take action for this is a Human’s rights violation and a security issue that affects the United States directly. Malaysians must demand answers to what these anti-Democratic UMNO(NATZI PARTY) pukitra Islamist FASCIST(With connections to HAMAS, Hezbollah, AL-QAIDA and IRAN) are doing in the name of protecting the so called “Malay Race” ,”Islamic religion” and the “Nation” !
Why the U.T.K (THE “SS” MASTERS of DEATH/TERRORISTS), (NATZI) Army, who authorized SUPPLIERS of the malleable explosive believed to be "C4" (Composition 4). Bear in mind that Abdul Razak Baginda is a BROKER INTERMEDIARY/PROXY for those(ASSASSINS/EXECUTIONERS) HIDDEN TOP GUNS of the DEFENSE FORCE with the SUPPLIER (Specifically, the Malaysian Armed Forces). Therefore, it is a standard nature of forwarding of samples of their product in this case to be tested.
A fellow press friend of mine yesterday asked me which country, Malaysia or Singapore, is good destination to learn English. I advised her to study in Singapore, where I studied English too five years ago, a safe country that has strict rule of law. Malaysia is a country where an innocent Mongolian woman was shot to death and exploded into pieces by military-use C4 explosive fastened to her body. I will say this sentence to everybody asked me about Malaysia. This will be recalled for the people of Mongolia every time we think of Malaysia.

Malaysia is no longer a destination for Mongolians either to study or travel. I heard a number of Mongolians going Malaysia to study has been decreased a lot since last year when our beloved mother of two was killed in a jungle outside KL.

I have been to Malaysia actually, when I was studying in Singapore. I remember that when I was under passport control at the Singapore-Malaysia border, a Malay passport controller smiled at me and told me "Bat Khaan! Genghis Khan!” He said something to his fellow customs officers in Malaysian and told me "Welcome to Malaysia!” My first impression on the country of Malaysia had this wonderful start. I felt like I was the first Mongolian coming to Malaysia. We will not hear this nice welcoming from a passport controller of Russia now, a country what we believed as "brother in steel friendship" for over 70 years in the past under Soviet ally.

At that time, how can we know that a Mongolian woman will be killed in this country brutally and her entrance record will be deleted from immigration database!
Personally, I think these people, Baginda and his family, including the two police officers, are the most disgusting people on the globe as same as those terrorists who killed thousands of people on September 11, 2001 by using civilian airplane as missiles.

Who authorizes those people to use airplane as missiles? Who authorizes those people to use military explosives to kill an innocent woman?
“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing.” –Edmund Burke-
“NO JUSTICE NO PEACE!”
“NO GETTING OVER IT!!”
“JUSTICE FOR ALTANTUYA SHAARIIBUU!!!”

Hi JP,

It's me. Don't worry, I won't make a habit out of visiting your blog.

BTW, what the @#$%% was the previous comment?

I could suggest an abridged version of this post.

Judaism: Believing what people said and wrote thousands of years ago.

Atheism: Not believing what people said and wrote thousands of years ago.

jewish philosopher said...

I don't understand the last comment either. But it's not porn and I'm hesitant to delete anything lest I appear to be covering something up.


Judaism and atheism aren't just about the credibility of ancient writings. After all, most Jews don't believe in the
Bhagavad Gita
while many atheists consider ancient hieroglyphics to be very credible if they don't mention religion.

"After all, most Jews don't believe in the
Bhagavad Gita while many atheists consider ancient hieroglyphics to be very credible if they don't mention religion."

Not quite. Atheists would consider an ancient hieroglyphic credible if and only if it is corroborated by outside or independent evidence (other records, scientific evidence, etc). Obviously this would automatically exclude any ancient texts claims of supernatural events, which by definition are inconsitent with natural law and the scientific method, and are NEVER corroborated by outside sources.

With regards to what Jews believe, my comment refers to ANY religion, whose followers believe their own ancient texts and are skeptical about those of other religions.

jewish philosopher said...

Some religions are based on very modern texts.

You seem to be saying that religious people believe in religious texts and atheists don't. Alright, however that doesn't explain very much.

Judaism

Core Beliefs: "The belief that God exists and wrote the Torah."

You forgot the belief that Rabbis speak for G-d, that saints perform miracles and that a strain of kabalists 500 years ago rewrote Halacha.

Primary motives: "Honesty and integrity."

Excuse me while I laugh uncontrollably.

Primary proofs: "Life proves God exists. Jewish history proves God wrote the Torah."

Yes, I have read some of the entertaining narcissism here in the form of "proofs" and "refutations". You are a master of non-sequiteur.

Primary defenses: "The fossils are remnants of earlier worlds. Children suffer due to sins in earlier lives or the sins of their parents."

So how do you tell the difference between earlier worlds and earlier history in the same world? What separates the worlds?
You also forgot that you said that children suffer and die because G-d knows they will grow up to be bad. Yet more brilliant "philosophy".

Primary basis for ethics: The Talmud.

Current Orthodox Judaism bears no more resemblance to the Talmud than England does to Shakespearean plays or even Harry Potter novels.

Primary motivation for ethics: Fear of God.

And obedience to the selected, oddly garbed celebrity rabbis of our generation. Also peer pressure, the need to get kids shidduchim and yeshiva berths and keeping up with the Jones's chumras. Ever read Mesichta Sotah 22 amud beis.

Primary purpose in life: "To serve God. To be rewarded in the afterlife."

Again I return to fits of laughter.

Founder: Abraham 1739 BCE

True founder: the Ari, about 500 years ago.

Primary text: the Pentateuch

No, superceded by the Zohar, pronouncements of latter day saints , and any number of other things that the people of the era of matan Torah would not recognize.
