Mai Luan Luan Gong Leh: Teo Soh Lung Say JI member is political exile

12 Oct

Today, Teo Siao Lang really make me confused. She say cannot anyhow arrest 2 JI member because they fled Singapore in 2001 before ISD went around rounding up the JI.

She okay or not? Two senior JI members, trained to be ninja kamakazi warriors in Afghanistan,  fighting for number one bad ass AQ terrorist organisation, can be pardoned because they managed to escape capture? Oh they VOLUNTARILY come back so we forgive and forget?

With this special logic, MSK is political exile twice over. How dare the ISD keep him in detention! Don’t you know he is Singapore’s Dalai Lama? Why stop there, Took Leng How, murdered Huang Na, escaped to Malaysia, chose to return home too.  He must be Singapore’s Thaksin Shinawatra?

I stand corrected. Last year I said every-mother-son agrees with terrorist being locked away. Apparently granny Teo disagress!! Can’t really blame her. She is still stuck in 1987.

[…] MHA’s press release claims that both Abd Rahim and Husaini “were senior members of the Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) terrorist organisation. They had undergone terrorist training in Afghanistan with the Al-Qaeda terrorist organisation in 1999/2000. They had also been actively involved in reconnoitring several potential local and foreign targets in Singapore for the purpose of a terrorist attack. Both men had fled Singapore in Dec 2001 soon after the commencement of the security operation against the JI and took refuge overseas. While on the run, Husaini was involved in the plot led by Singapore JI leader Mas Selamat bin Kastari to hijack an airplane destined for Singapore and crash it into Changi Airport in Jan 2001, to retaliate against the disruption of the Singapore JI network.”

It is clear that if Abd Rahim and Husaini had not fled Singapore in Dec 2001, they would have been arrested and may still be in prison today. They fled and became political exiles but chose to return home after 10 years. Their arrests serves as a reminder to all political exiles that returning to Singapore may cost them their freedom no matter how long their exile is.

The allegation against Abd Rahim and Husaini is not that they are present JI members but that they were senior members of JI. The ISA is thus used as if it is a piece of criminal legislation where an offender can be prosecuted for offences committed decades past. The grave distinction however is that under the ISA, there is no charge and no trial.

As in the past, MHA’s press release and the press reported the arrests of Abd Rahim and Husaini as if the two were guilty of the serious crimes alleged against them. They “were two senior JI members” and went to Afghanistan for “terrorist training with the Al-Qaeda terrorist organisation.”

 

 

ISD Employs Paul the Octopus

8 Jul

Paul, the so-called “octopus oracle”, has successfully predicted the outcome for each of Germany’s last World Cup Matches. Top secret for your eyes only reports indicated that before Paul achieved worldwide acclaim for his oracle awesomeness, he was first consulted by the Internal Security Department (ISD) of Singapore.

Predictions by Paul helped the ISD identify a self -radicalized 20-year-old NSman, Muhammad Fadil Abdul Hamid; whom was subsequently detained under the ISA.

Government critic, Mohamad Shamin of the Young Democrats (who refused to believe an octopus could predict matches) challenges the basis for the arrest, accusing the government of using seafood to further divided the Muslim community and encroach on Human rights over fish. He is quoted as saying:

“The Government announced today that it had detained 20-year-old National Serviceman Muhammad Fadil who it says is a “deeply radicalised” Muslim. Given the fact that the PAP uses the Internal Security Act (ISA) to silence its critics and suppress democracy, what are we to believe in this “war”? There is no denying that groups who use violence as a method to achieve their objectives exist. However, these articles, coming at a time when the election fever is being felt are seen as tactics to divert attention especially of the Malay community away from the real issues affecting them.”

His harsh words are not likely to sit well with PAP elite that have honed a fierce reputation for caning vandals and suing publications. And with its zero tolerance to speech that incite divisions in society, Paul the octopus has predicted that in a dual pursuit of Anwar Al-Awlaki (the radical Islamic ideologue behind the radicalization of Fadil, underwear bomber, ford hood killer, ..etc) and Mohamad Shamin (radical SDP youth), the ISD is more likely to call up Shamin for Kopi.

(**rumours are that Shamin could be Anwar’s illegitimate child**)

Paul’s next assignment is to predict the winners for each GRC & SMC in the upcoming GE. Critics are already up in harms, fearing the use of Abalone porridge in the wards might unfairly distract Paul. Paul has until Feb 2012 to make his decisions.
