  2. Dari sekecil kepada yang sebesar besarnya, apa yang dicurahkannya kepada ugama, bangsa dan negaranya akan menjadi sejarah umpama air laut yang tidak kering dan tersimpan segala khazanah di dasarnya.

    Tapi bagi mereka yang sebaliknya tentulah Nik Aziz, Anwar dan Paklah lebih hebat !!! lantak kau oranglah...

  3. Salam 'Idil Fitri,

    Tidak dapat dinafikan budi dan jasa Tun Mahathir kepada bangsa, agama dan negara. Tetapi ada bangsa yang terlalu jumud pemikiran sahaja yang melebelkan beliau mahafiraun.

    Tun Mahathir menyelamatkan negara kerana ketamakan kuasa Anwar al-jub, tetapi PAS bersubahat dengan Anwar al-jub dalam kemungkarannya...

  4. Bagus islah kerana mengeluarkan fakta sebegini. Mungkin akan memberi kesedaran kepada mereka yg sering menggelar atau memanggil Tun DM dengan gelaran2 buruk, terutama yg ditulis penyokong pembangkang dalam blog ini.

    Jika nak dibandingkan taraf Tun DM dengan mereka yang sering mengutuk beliau, tak terukur jarak tarafnya. Jasa si pengutuk entah bagaimanalah agaknya nak dibandingkan dengan org yang dikutuknya.

    Realitinya, mereka mengutuk Tun DM dlm blog/laman web yang mana jaringan internet itu sendiri diusahakan oleh Tun DM dan barisan kabinetnya bagi kemudahan rakyat Malaysia.

    Sedangkan anjing di Timor Laste pun tahu hormat pada pihak berkuasa di sana, inikan pula segelintir manusia di sini yg sering memperlekehkan pihak berkuasa dalam negara sendiri. Lebih hina dari anjing la mereka2 ini gamaknya.
