Jom Layan Video Promosi Program Jelajah Seorang Penghasut

Baru-baru ini, Ahli Parlimen Pandan PKR, YB Rafizi Ramli telah mengeluarkan video kempen jelajah terbaharunya yang dinamakan Kempen Jom Bina Semula Negara.

Memandangkan Rafizi sendiri yang telah membuat pengakuan bahawa kerjanya ialah menghasut, saya menjangkakan ini adalah sebahagian daripada kempen hasutan Rafizi menjelang PRU 14.

Sebenarnya, setiap kali saya nampak Rafizi, perkara pertama yang akan terkeluar di dalam kepala saya ialah perkataan ‘hasut’; mungkin kerana saya amat ‘mengagumi’ Rafizi yang dengan megah dan tanpa rasa berdosa mengaku yang kerjanya ialah menghasut dan menegaskan bahawa menghasut itulah satu strategi yang penting untuk menjatuhkan UMNO/Barisan Nasional.

Oleh itu, saya rasakan video promosi ini lebih sesuai untuk kempen Rafizi, sesuai dengan prinsip ‘good governance’ PKR …

Rafizi sepatutnya bersikap telus dan terbuka dalam menamakan programnya, demi menjaga kredibilitinya sebagai seorang pemimpin yang kerjanya ialah menghasut.

Pertubuhan Muafakat Sejahtra Masyarakat Malaysia (MUAFAKAT) telah membuat sebuah laporan polis terhadap senator DAP, Dr. Ariffin Omar di balai polis Hulu Kelang, Ampang Jaya tengah hari tadi.

Laporan polis itu dibuat kerana Dr. Ariffin Omar pada 19hb April 2017 telah membuat kenyataan mengatakan bahawa “apa salahnya kalau Penang hendak dijadikan Christian city” sewaktu perbahasan di Dewan Negara.

Video: Apakah Ini Kebenarannya Disebalik Insiden Bazar Ramadan Kluang?

Saya terjumpa video ini yang memperlihatkan kejadian di Bazar Ramadan Kluang dari sudut yang berlainan daripada yang diviralkan oleh pihak DAP.

Persoalannya, apakah insiden ini adalah hasil daripada provokasi DAP untuk memalukan orang Melayu?

London was hit by horror attacks in three different areas, with at least two people were killed and many more were injured by a van attack and stabbings.

Witnesses told Express.co.uk that a white van had appeared to purposefully hit pedestrians on the London Bridge at 10.08pm.

Dozens of people were on the bridge at the time of the attack.

The Telegraph reported that witnesses said 20 people were run down by a van and pedestrians were attacked with knives at 10.08pm.

There were also multiple reports of rapid gunfire at the scene.

It was also reported that a police officer at the scene urged people to run from the bridge and that the London Bridge is closed at both ends.

The London Bridge incident was followed by another incident in Borough Market on the south bank of the River Thames where three men ran towards the market, stabbing people as they ran.

The Telegraph also reported that police entered bars and restaurants in the Southwark area around 11pm and told customers to get down on the floor amid reports that the incident was still ongoing.

People outdoors were told by yelling police officers to run from the area as the atmosphere turned to one of “hysteria”.

Guests staying at Premier Inn on Borough High Street were evacuated as the police cordon extended.

The third incident happened in Vauxhall, South London, after the two incidents in Central London.

Metropolitan police tweeted at 11:44pm tonight that officers were on the scene.

It was later declared that this incident has nothing to do with the first two incidents.

Police have advised people to keep away from the area while The Shard and the News Building are also on lock down.

The Met urged people in the three affected areas to run, hide and call the police.

Prime Minister Theresa May said, “Following updates from police and security officials, I can confirm that the terrible incident in London is being treated as a potential act of terrorism.”

British Airways Cancels All Flights From Heathrow and Gatwick

The British Airways has suffered a major global IT system failure which cancelled all its flights out of London’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports on Saturday.

The incident happened before 6PM (UTC+1), and some parts of British Airways’ website and check-in features were unavailable too.

According to the British Airways chief, Alex Cruz in an apology video, the failure was likely caused by a “power supply issue”, and that they have not found any evidence of a server attack.

Even the contact center server was affected and customers were advised to go to the British Airways twitter and website, Heathrow and Gatwick airport websites instead for any information.

Yahoo! News reported that this is the sixth major crash for its recently installed system in the space of roughly a year.

Ariana Grande Concert Explosion Killed 22

At least 22 people including children were killed in an explosion at the Ariana Grande pop concert which was held at the Manchester Arena last night.

The horrific blast sent thousands of adults, teenagers and children screamed and fled in panic from the packed Europe’s largest indoor arena as people were leaving the arena after the concert ended.

The Sun reported that, “Witnesses told of seeing shards of metal tearing into concert-goers in the foyer area of the world-famous concert venue – leaving dozens lying in pools of blood.”

According to The Telegraph, at least 59 others were injured and many others are still missing and desperate parents have spent the night searching for loved ones, some as young as eight years old, who have been missing since the explosion.

The Telegraph also reported that police believe that the attack was carried out by one man who died at the scene, although they are still working to establish if he “was acting alone or as part of a network”.

The suicide bomber was reported to detonate an explosive device in the foyer outside the main hall of the arena.

Sixty ambulances flooded the area and more than 400 police officers were deployed.

The first victim to be named after an explosion is Georgina Callander, 18.

Prime Minister Theresa May suspended all election campaigning due to the incident.

My deepest condolences to all the family and friends of the victims.
