Ella's Kini Standing In The Eyes of the World is downloadable on Gen M's new site.
On www.generasi-m.com you can check out the former PM's timetable in Kelantan today: - a breakfast rally at the Pengkala Chepa airport, a tea dialogue at a hotel, and dinner at another hotel. By Dr M's standard, the programme's laid back. Makes you wonder what's for lunch and who he'll meet between tea and dinner.
..But Syed Hamid had Rice
This morning, as advised by our leaders, I read the mainstream papers:- The PM has politely asked Condoleezza Rice to convey to the US government that a ceasefire in Lebanon is desirable, in a meeting Syed Hamid described to journalists as "positive". Indonesia, which has the largest Muslim population in the world, was not quoted anywhere so we do not know if it is as angry as Malaysia with the US position with regards to the Middle East crises. A report said during a packed press conference with Rice, journalists who wanted to press the US State Secretary about the latest on Lebanon were greatly dissapointed because "Syed Hamid chose to end the session after only three questions". What was the rush? Aah, Rice later played the piano as Syed Hamid and his Asean counterparts sat, lulled and charmed. Malaysia led Asean at the 39th Asean Ministerial Meeting, which is Syed Hamid's show, in signing a pact that would boost ties with the US.
Meanwhile, according to a foreign on-line news, Beirut's destruction is almost complete. At least 600 civilians are dead.
Sometime yesterday, Iran's FM Manouchehr Mottaki arrived for an "unscheduled' meeting with Syed Hamid. We are not told if they have met or if they will meet. What we know is Iran had called for an emergengy meeting of the OIC for a ceasefire in Lebanon. Malaysia is OIC chairman. The reports don't say if the Iranian FM attended Rice's piano recital.
