Hiding out in London, yet RPK not shy to call Anwar a coward: The hypocrisy is so Umno!

RPK calls PM-in-waiting "chicken", but I have called the fugitive blogger a "liar and coward" and he didn't deem it fit to rebut my grounds building my case against him.

I had had two face-offs with Raja Petra Kamaruddin, and they were not pleasant at all. In fact, I had restrained myself from engaging the royal blogger hiding out in London for the past few years as I felt he wasn't a fighter brave enough to come back to the homeland that is Malaysia to "fight for a better Malaysia".

Three pieces of silver

But RPK enjoys the high life in England because he could enjoy "the best of both worlds", and he especially using his webblog and aallied newsportal named to continue regular slandererous and abusive writings against his enemies with half-truths and fictional allegations. His "enemies" have changed with time, and I believe this half-Malaysian and half-Brit has become a mercenary writer and his primary allegiance is to the proverbial "three pieces of silver" of his current paymaster. Many suits await him in Malaysia filed by subjects of his slander, hence his continued "cowardly" absence from Malaysia. What galls many Malaysians is his 180-degree turn from supporting the Reformasi movement for change in government, and concurrently, a principal target of RPK's venom and slander in the past two years has been a potential Prime Minister and current Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim.

Of course, he had before the fallout with Anwar, had also insinuated that Rosmah Mansor, the wife of current PM Najib Tun Razak, wa at the scene of the crime where Mongolian beauty Altantuya Sharibuu was murdered. After several years highlighting this allegation on, he recently recanted this allegation against the socalled First Lady of Malaysia. It was also about this time RPKshowed he had been "turned around" -- giving interviews to the pro-UMNO television TV3 and later the the mainstream press, focusing on maligning Anwar whom he had championed as director of FreeAnwarCampaign after the former Deputy Prime Minister was sacked both as DPM as well as Deputy UMNO president in late 1998.

A real liar and a coward, a typical BuMNO

I had some time back made up my mind to delink myself from this fugitive blogger RPK's rants and insinuations after his unfounded allegations against me having passed to him OSA-documents which I dared not publish myself and wanted him to publish in m@day. To this I had rebutted him and following his failure to retract his fabricated stories and to apologise, I wrote an piece titled: " RPK, you are a liar and a coward" which I will recall at the end of today's post.

What made me sit up to write this update was at breakfast this morning when I read the NST frontpage print edition, and now follows the online report reproduced thus:

KUALA LUMPUR: Blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin called opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim “a chicken” yesterday after the latter reportedly requested him to be excluded from a forum scheduled to take place today in Kent, England.

Raja Petra told an online daily yesterday he had received a call from the WikiLeaks organisation informing him that Anwar had disagreed to his inclusion in the forum on the topic of global scenario.

Raja Petra, a former Anwar supporter, took a swipe at the opposition leader for fearing to face him in the discussions, which would have included the political situation in Malaysia. “How is Anwar going to debate (Prime Minister

Datuk Seri Najib Razak) when he is too ‘chicken’ to face me?

"He should try me out first before taking on Najib," he said, referring to the opposition's request for a debate between Anwar and Najib.

Raja Petra, who in recent months has been highlighting corruption and abuses of power in the opposition, said Anwar did not tolerate dissent or respect the independence of media.

"He will only deal with people who support him and agree with him.

"If this is Anwar as opposition leader, I shudder to think what he would be like as a prime minister."

The forum, he said, would have originally seen the participation of Raja Petra, Anwar and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

"So now it will only be Julian and him (Anwar).

"I agreed to Anwar's inclusion but he did not agree with my presence," Raja Petra said.

He said the forum was to be videotaped for a documentary for WikiLeaks, with Anwar participating in the discussion via online communication service Skype.

He also revealed his online news portal, Malaysia Today, and WikiLeaks have recently renewed their contract for the former to cover all of WikiLeaks' exposes in Malaysia.

A United States State Department cable released by WikiLeaks two years ago had revealed Singapore intelligence services stating that they believed Anwar "did indeed commit the acts for which he is currently indicted", referring to the sodomy charges for which he has since been acquitted.

I'm also a blogger, why don't I challenge Najib

As i had once written challenging RPK and his ertswhile lieutenant Haris Ibrahim when they both headed the now-defunct Malaysian Civil Liberties Movement (MCLM) -- "Who art thou in Malaysian politics?" to assume the role of selecting some 20 candidates ("men of integrity", their flag, so RPK and Haris must necessarily be supermen of integrity, yes?!)to run under PKR and DAP banners in the 13th General Elections, and if they were to be elected into Parliament, the MPs would not be answerable to either PKR or DAP but be independent (hence, apparently accountable to MCLM chieftains numbering the demigodly duo, no?!)

I find RPK's namecalling of Anwar as "chicken" amusing indeed, because here's someone hiding out in London daring to label an Opposition Leader thus just because he snubbed the blogger as being fit to speak at the same panel as planned by Wikileaks.

Hey, maybe I could challenger MCA president Chua Soi Lek for a debate, and after one month of silence from him, I also call him a "chicken" for having no guts to face a blogger? Or for unelected Koh Tsu Koon, even an ex-CM of Penang, to challenge Anwar for a debate on national issues, WHAT WOULD BE KOH's locus standi? Only the incumbent UMNO president and PM Najib is of the rank suitable for such a debate with a challenger for the top post in Malaysia, not a chief from any BN component party less UMNO will qualify.

Become MPs first, then only talk

RPK and Haris, my challenge to you from a blogger to another -- Both of you take part in GE13 and become MPs first, maybe then take on peers of about equal level-lah, like YB Zulkifly Noordin or Wee Choo Keong? An UMNO youth leader like Khairy Jamaluddin or even MCA youth chief Wee Ka Siong would even deem you as not equals to be standing on the same platform to debate.

So may I sing the same refrain from the article: "Who art thou in Malaysian poliitics?" that you think you rank equal or remotely qualified to share the same platform as the PM-in-waitingjust because your webbloh has teamed up with Wikileaks? I believe any blogger worth his salt wouldn't take you as an equal, especially when by residing in a foreign land, your loyalty to NegaraKu is questionable, and we writer-bloggers stay back to fight the good fight on Malaysian soil! And don't give us the crap about the government using the Internal Security Act against you when you come back -- only a real chicken ready for the crockpot would use such an excuse.
