Ladies and Gentlemen,
Mr. Dhanabalan, the former Singapore government minister, who remains part of the Lee Administration after retirement, has a remarkable ability to convincingly tell you a lie, even when he knows that you know it to be a lie! This remarkable ability is possessed by the entire Lee Kuan Yew Administration. As one reader of my blog Jeff Yeo wrote, (see his letter above)the Lee Administration politicians would even be prepared to tell you with a very straight face that pigs indeed can fly!
The Singapore state owned and controlled newspaper "The Straits Times" of Dec 11, 2007 carries a story headed "Possible to reconcile faith with political duties in Singapore: Dhanabalan". He had made a speech at the old Parliament House to an invited group of PAP sympathisers or rather political opportunists, comprised of civil servants, students and guests.
If there was something further from the truth, surely it has to be this statement!
What does he call these following actions, these crimes committed by the Lee Administration anyway? Christian deeds?
Anyone who knows Singapore even a little knows that dishonest unconscionable actions such as the following happen every day in Singapore.
The Singapore judges systematically abusing defamation laws to bankrupt opposition politicians such as JB Jeyaretanm and many others? Falsely accusing 22 civic minded citizens comprised of lawyers and others as Marxists conspirators, in 1987, imprisoning and forcing them to sign confessions under torture? The abuse of legal process to bankrupt and imprison Dr. Chee merely because he dared to criticize the government and their politicians? The muzzling of the press and media to parrot government propaganda and denying the citizens any avenue to criticize the government? What about the fact that he, Dhanabalan, corruptly pays himself over $3 million dollars a year which he claims as his salary, without the consent of his people, while the poorer sections of Singaporeans in their one room flats live without food and electricity?
Tell me again, Mr. Dhanabalan. Are these Christian deeds?
Dhanabalan had said that politicians in other countries are ranked no higher than "second hand car dealers". Yes that may be true and Dhanabalan may be right. In Singapore they are not second hand car dealers; they are worse, they are gangsters and thieves. Much worse than second hand car dealers.
As for me, I will say this to Mr. Dhanabalan. Give me "second hand car dealers" anytime. They are much better than the outright gangsters that Mr. Dhanabalan and his boss Lee Kuan Yew are.
And if Mr. Dhanabalan calls himself a Christian, I will ask him this. What need do we have then for the Devil?
