Fuziah Salleh Campaign Trail: KeADILan at St Thomas’ Church

Posted on: March 2, 2008

Certainly, this picture shows a different view of NON-PARTISANSHIP:

An invitation to all political parties were extended by the Church to speak to the congregation of St Thomas’ Church this morning. Fuziah Salleh was introduced by Rev. Father Eugene Benedict who gave her the opportunity to say some words

to those present.

Photobucket Photobucket

Her appeal to stop the rot to the God-conscious congregation ends with a tremendous applause.

Photobucket

There was a clear sense of acceptance to the principle of truth and justice uphold by KeADILan.
Photobucket Father Eugene was asked by a reporter, “Why are you doing all this?”(The reporter was referring to the Church’s invitation to political parties to be present at the Church this morning). Father Eugene replied,”Because this is our soul. We must be interested. (We must know everything before we decide on the 8th of March).”

Dr Rosli was also there to be with his politician wife.

Well, everyone seemed to be there, too.

But BN candidates did not come.

all the best!!

remind the people in your GE area that we must stop corruptions by BN!!!

BN said the nation will bankrupt if we use oil or becomes a welfare country BUT the reality is taxpayers’ money are flowing into BN leaders and cronies thru so-called ‘commission’

say to them that it is very important to deny 2/3 majority by BN because the oppositions can stop any policies or decisions in favour of BN cronies and interest being rejected in the parliament!!!

BN candidates were not there because KUANTAN MP is not even from KUANTAN. Get him out of a place that he is not from! Hidup REFORMASI! MALAYSIA UNTUK SEMUA!

Quote Jade Lee: “It may enlighten some readers here, if you are open minded enough to listen and to learn the truth,

IT WAS A FEW CHURCH LEADERS IN KUANTAN

who have first started to discuss the Lynas issue and to raise awareness of their congregation to oppose this project.” Unquote.

Answer:

When has our Good Lord taught us to stop Lynas and to smash the rice bowls

of ABOUT THE 1,750 PEOPLE DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY EMPLOYED BY LYNAS AND WHOSE SALARIES OR INCOME ARE NEEDED TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLES FOR THEIR FAMILIES TO SURVIVE?

DO THEY CARE WHETHER THESE POOR HARD WORKING INNOCENT FELLOW HUMANS HAVE A JOB AND A HOME AND FOOD FOR THEIR CHILDREN ?

So why talk about caring for the poor people? This is nothing more than just despicable hypocrisy in it’s most blatant form.

ALL THEY THINK ABOUT IS TO DESTROY LYNAS AND STOP THE CONSTRUCTION OF ANY NEW PROJECTS WHICH PROVIDE JOBS, SHELTER, FOOD AND A DECENT LIFE FOR THE POOR PEOPLE……….WHILE THEY THEMSELVES HAVE A COZY JOB, SHELTER AND PLENTY OF FOOD FOR THEIR CHILDREN.

May Our Good Lord Have Mercy on Their Souls.

Quote Mahesvaran Mahadevan 06.12.12 : ” u brought lynas to parliment, the won, then to court lynas won the case. what some more. this already prove lynas is safe. I AM CONFUSED WHY ONLY CHINESE ANTI-LYNAS WHEN OTHERS SO QUIET, WEIRD.” Unquote.

Comment:

Yes, why only the Malaysian Chinese and no other racial groups are involved in this comical anti-lynas debacle.

At present, about 95% of these rare earths are mined and refined in China.

If you look at all the foreign blogs and press, you will see that most of the commentators are saying that CHINA IS THE HIDDEN CULPRIT BEHIND ALL THIS NONSENSE !

You cannot blame the foreigners for doing so as:

PRACTICALLY ALL ANTI-LYNAS NINCOMPOOPS ARE CHINESE

PRACTICALLY ALL NON-CHINESE ARE PRO-LYNAS,

SO THE LOGICAL CONCLUSION ?

CHINA IS THE ULTIMATE CULPRIT ! ! !

And this has triggered a lot of ill will, animosity, hatred and disgust for what was perceived as “CHINA’S DIRTY TRICKS AND MANIPULATIONS.’

However, this is not the real truth.

Quote Anti-Lynas Jade Lee: “It may enlighten some readers here, if you are open minded enough to listen and to learn the truth,

IT WAS A FEW CHURCH LEADERS IN KUANTAN

who have first started to discuss the Lynas issue and to raise awareness of their congregation to oppose this project.” Unquote.

So what really happens is that a few of the innocent church leaders in Kuantan who are always concerned about the sufferings of others, suddenly realised that a huge REE plant is being built nearby.

Unfortunately at about the same time, the Fukushima disaster occurred.

And to their horror, they found that the raw material to be used in the Lynas plant was “radioactive” and with only a primitive knowledge of radiation, these concerned church leaders were flabbergasted and as Jade Lee said instigated their congregation to oppose this project.”

Presumably, these leaders do have only a rudimentary knowledge of economics and must have been very suspicious of why Australia would want to send the ore all the way to Malaysia for processing and falsely believing that Australia must be truly terrified about the refining process with all its “dangerous, radioactive waste.”

Once the madness started, a few of the local Chinese Newspapers, picked up the story and amplified the fear by persistently reporting on every word that the anti-lynas say, even though they are something that is obviously absurd.. like the Lynas plant is a nuclear plant and is going to explode and spread radioactivity all over the country.

These Chinese Newspapers which are traditionally anti-establishment, may also be partly irritated by Lynas brag that Lynas is going to end the monopoly of China on the Rare Earth market by producing almost a third of the present world production.

Then, as usual, the local politicians saw the fantastic opportunity to accuse the establishment of allowing such a dangerous plant to be established in Kuantan.

Because the general election is coming soon, they could not let this golden opportunity to pass by, and so jump right into the fray.

With their massive financial backing, the opposition, together with some naive unthinking minds started the anti-lynas campaign

Since the local politician is a psychologist, this politician must be well versed in the techniques of convincing the population into believing something that is absolutely ridiculous.

It looks like they are using the same brainwashing techniques used by that devious demonic master brainwasher before and during the 2nd World War i.e. Hitler.

Brainwashing techniques are based on the consistently persistent repetition of propaganda focused on just a few issues and continuously repeated in a slightly different way.

According to Adolf Hitler in- “War Propaganda”, in volume 1, chapter 6 of Mein Kampf (1925)

“But the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success.” Unquote.

One Chinese Newspaper in particular, has been reporting on a daily basis of everything that these anti-lynas folks were saying or doing, no matter how stupid it is, like making fake coffins and doing silly walks.

This propaganda in the Chinese media is, like what is mentioned in Hitler’s Mein Kampf, is focused, constant, continuous and persistent.

There are 4 stages in this Hitler type of brainwashing procedure:

1. DISSEMINATION OF PROPAGANDA (usually well camouflaged lies)

2. HARASSMENT OF NON-BELIEVERS

3. INTIMIDATION OF INCORRIGIBLE DISSIDENTS and

4. ELIMINATION OF THE OBSTINATE RECALCITRANTS

THE ANTI LYNAS RED GUARDS HAVE DEPLOYED AN ARMY OF CYBER HARASSERS AND CYBER THUGS IN ALL THE MALAYSIAN BLOGS AND OTHER NEWS MEDIA TO INTIMIDATE ANYONE WHO OPPOSE THEM AND THEY ARE VERY SUCCESSFUL SO FAR.

VERY FEW PEOPLE DARE TO SPEAK UP, AND ALL THOSE WHO DARE TO DO SO ARE BEING INTIMIDATED, HARASSED AND BOYCOTTED BY THE BRAINWASHED ZOMBIES.

THE MAIN AIM OF THESE CYBER THUGS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GETTING RID OF LYNAS, OR ANYTHING TO DO WITH HELPING CHINA MAINTAIN THEIR GRIP ON THE REE MARKET, BUT THEY ARE USING THIS GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY TO BRAINWASH AND INSTILL HATRED FOR THE PRESENT GOVERNMENT, THUS ENABLING THEM TO WIN THE COMING GENERAL ELECTION.

At present they have been hindered by a tiny group of dissidents in Kuantan and they are now blocked at stage 3.

As a result of the Chinese media, most of the Chinese were well brainwashed into believing the absolute crap that these anti-lynas people were propagating and disseminating.

Fortunately, all the other racial groups do not read Chinese and the propaganda do not affect them and as a result, the Malays and Indians are unaffected.

QUOTE Anti-Lynas Jade Lee: “When a few so claimed rare earth scientists came to Kuantan to speak about the safe rare earth processing, they were criticised and BOOED OUT OF TOWN IN SHAME” Unquote.

THE THREE RARE EARTH SPECIALISTS, RECOMMENDED BY THE CCP OF CHINA, WHO WERE INVITED BY A FEW OF THE LOCAL ASSOCIATIONS TO ENLIGHTEN THE PEOPLE OF KUANTAN WERE RUDELY AND CRUDELY HARASSED BY THE ANTILYNAS LEADER AND HIS RED GUARDS IN A SHAMELESS AND DESPICABLE WAY.

THESE INNOCENT FOREIGN GUESTS WERE BEING BOOED, SHOUTED AT, JEERED, MOCKED, CRITICIZED, TERRORIZED AND DEGRADED BY THESE
DESPICABLE, UNCOUTH COMMON HARASSERS WHO UNWITTINGLY DISPLAYED THEIR ABSOLUTE STUPIDITY FOR ALL TO SEE.

THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOUR BRINGS SHAME TO ALL MALAYSIANS AND SHOULD BE STRONGLY AND UNEQUIVOCALLY CONDEMNED.

THESE THREE POOR OLD CHINESE SCIENTISTS, TWO OF WHOM WERE IN THEIR 70’S, WITH YEARS OF VALUABLE EXPERIENCE, WERE FLABBERGASTED BY SUCH STUPID, CHILDISH, DISGUSTING BEHAVIOUR.

THE USE OF SUCH THUGGERY UNEQUIVOCALLY CATEGORIZES THE USERS INTO THE LOWEST RUNG OF SOCIETY AND REFLECTS BADLY ON THEIR CHARACTER, INTELLIGENCE AND UPBRINGING !

BECAUSE OF THEIR BULLYING TACTIC, VERY FEW PEOPLE DARE TO SPEAK UP, AND ALL THOSE WHO DARE TO DO SO ARE BEING INTIMIDATED, HARASSED AND BOYCOTTED BY THESE ZOMBIES

IS THERE REALLY A “TRAGEDY” IN BUKIT MERAH ?

There has not been a single death or injury that has been definitely and conclusively proven beyond any scientific doubt from the accidental inhalation or ingestion of Thorium-232 !

Compare this with death caused by Water i.e. from drowning… 388,000 drowning deaths in 2004 alone (WHO).

In Bukit Merah, the radiation comes from Thorium and Uranium in the Tin Tailing or Amang (which contains the mineral Monazite). This source of radionuclides are our own and has been in Malaysia for billions of years.

Although the average radiation level is well over 37 to 125 times that of the Lynas waste, there is no definite well controlled scientific proof that the cases of leukaemia and birth defects are caused by radiation from the waste.

The various samples of Monazite from different countries and even samples from different parts of Malaysia have different ranges of Thorium-232 content.

According to data from Malaysian Nuclear Agency, our monazite ore contains about 16-20% of Th-232.

The thorium content of monazite from other parts of the world is also variable and can be as high as 20 – 30 %, although commercial monazite sands typically contain 6 – 12% thorium oxide.

Levels as high as 60% of Thorium dioxide has been recorded in Indian monazite.

COMPARISON OF RADIOACTIVITY IN Bq (Specific activity.. number of atoms decaying in 1second)

Thorium-232 = 4,080 Bq/gm

Pure Potassium-40 = 254,000 Bq/gm

Naturally Occurring Potassium (3 different isotopes) in our body and food = 32 Bq/gm

Artificially created Plutonium-238 = 634,000,000,000 Bq/gm (1/2 life=87.7 years)

Artificially created Cobalt-60 used in the sterilization of rubber gloves has a specific activity of 44 T Bq/g or

44,000,000,000,000 Bq/g

Monazite ore from Amang or Tin Tailings in Malaysia = 284 Bq/gm
(Using the conservative estimate of the average content of Thorium of only 7% as given by the director of the AELB).

Lynas Rare Earth Waste = 6 Bq/gm

Public dose limits for exposure from uranium mining or nuclear plants are usually set at 1 mSv per year above background.

The National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement (NCRP) and its international counterpart, the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) offer recommendations for the maximum permissible dose (MPD) of radiation.

General Public annual MPD by both NCRP and ICRP is 1 mSv.

For Radiation Workers, the annual MPD is 50 mSv (NCRP) and 20 mSv (ICRP), with a cumulative MPD of 10 mSv x Age.

MPD during pregnancy is 5 mSv (NCRP) and 2 mSv (ICRP).

However, experts including Professor Wade Allison of Oxford University argue that the dose limit can safely be raised to 100 millisieverts, based on current health statistics.

UNSCEAR (THE UNITED NATIONS SCENTIFIC COMMITTEE ON THE EFFECTS OF ATOMIC RADIATION) HAS FINALLY ADMITTED THAT WE CAN’T USE THE LNT HYPOTHESIS TO PREDICT CANCER FROM LOW DOSES OF RADIATION and that there is a safe lower limit for radiation and i.e. 100 mSv/year.

Compare this with the dose of 0.002 millisieverts/year of exposure for people living within 1 km of the Lynas plant in the worst case scenario (estimated by Lynas).

I have seen lots of cases of leukaemia and other types of cancer as well as birth defects over the last 40 years or so and unfortunately we do not have Lynas around at that time to use as a scapegoat.

Unscrupulous people have been using videos and pictures of patients with congenital abnormalities and other illnesses to instil fear into the population. There is absolutely no scientific proof that these cases are caused by radiation.

THEY POST PICTURES OF POOR SUFFERING CHILDREN AND OTHERS WITH UNRELATED TUMOURS AND DISEASES …. THEY MILK THE SUFFERING OF OTHERS IN A SICK ATTEMPT TO LINK LYNAS TO THESE TERRIBLE ILLNESSES … THIS IS TRUELY IMMORAL AND DESPICABLE ! !

Only people with ulterior motives would use pictures and videos of these unfortunate patients whose disorders have nothing to do with radiation to score political points!

The studies by Dr Bertell and Dr Jayabalan on Bukit Merah which were often quoted, need to be taken not just with a pinch of salt, but rather a bucket full of salt !

To be taken seriously as a valid study, it should have a valid high quality statistical analysis with statistically significant results and repeated studies must show similar results. The above studies above do not have any of these characteristics and qualities.

And moreover, the study should be double blind and involve a large number of subjects. The above studies above do not have it.

So, whatever conclusions that these studies evoke, is as good as what Ahmad, Ah Kow, Ramasamy and some busybody housewives say and conclude while waiting at the bus stop !

Quote Ng Ai Soo:

What happened to the children in Bukit Merah and Carey Island?

It is more than 20 years now and any further (or worsening) effects of the radiation exposure would have become clear by now in comparison with the unexposed cohort at Carey Island.

Is there not a follow up study on this?

Does CAP have it in Penang? Or does Dr. Jayabalan have it?

This is immediate relevance to this line of reasoning… otherwise the lack of follow up could be interpreted as if there was no significant effect on those kids..” Unquote

In the south of the state of Kerala in India the soil contains as much as 4,000 ppm (parts of Thorium per million). Studies have shown that there is little or no accumulation of Thorium-232 in the inhabitants.

The Lynas waste contains only 1,650 ppm.

In Ramsar, Iran, the naturally occurring radiation
is extremely high at 260 mSv/yr.
This is 13,000,000% higher than the expected worse case scenario in Kuantan.

And the people in Ramsar, Iran has been found to be healthier and live longer than the rest of the Iranians! There is also no increase in the number of cancer cases.

Remember the Tin slag from the Eastern Smelting and Straits Trading in Penang ? These, which contain the tantalum and monazite ore, and the monazite ore can be more than 3,700 % more radioactive than the Lynas waste.

And these radioactive tin slag were used to fill up the old Penang Stadium and the roads in Penang. A lot of these has already been stolen and sold off at a huge profit, but a lot still remains in the roads in Butterworth and Penang island.

The people in Penang have not developed Cancer so far as a result of these slag!

The anti-Lynas people who are so paranoid about imported radiation from Australia should have a look the paper published in the Malaysian Journal of Analytical Sciences which showed high levels of radiation in areas where tin was mined. The waste or amang contains high levels of Monazite and other minerals which are highly radioactive.

All these old tin mine areas are well populated. Note even Kuala Lumpur is also an ex-tin mining area.

Thorium-232 is a very weakly radioactive substance and produces only alpha particles which cannot even penetrate a thin piece of paper.
All you have to do is to wrap it up in a piece of newspaper and it is for all intents and purposes, non-radioactive !

” Thorium-232 is considered to be a carcinogen only IF ADMINISTERED INTRAVENOUSLY AS A COLLOIDAL DISPERSION OF THORIUM-232 DIOXIDE.”

It is not considered to be a cancer causing substance if taken orally or inhaled according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer IARC, just like silica (sand) which is not carcinogenic if ingested.

SAFETY OF THORIUM-232

A CHUNK OF THORIUM IS NO MORE HARMFUL THAN A BAR OF SOAP

1. It is safer and cleaner than uranium because its radioactivity is significantly lower:

Quote Richard Martin, famous journalist with extensive experience in Thorium

“A CHUNK OF THORIUM IS NO MORE HARMFUL THAN A BAR OF SOAP”.

You can safely hold metallic Thorium-232 in your hands as it is an alpha emitter and alpha particles cannot penetrate even a piece of paper.

#####

2. Thorium-232 is strongly adsorbed to clay. There is no natural way it can get into body. Even the plants and fruits do not contain any Thorium in places with high Thorium in soil.

The amount of Th-232 in the human body is tiny (estimated to be only 30 micrograms per body i.e. to get 30 gm of Th-232, you need 1 million bodies!

NICK TSURIKOV, INTERNATIONAL RADIATION SAFETY SPECIALIST

THORIUM IN “WASTE” IS INSOLUBLE AND CANNOT POISON ANY PLANTS, ANIMALS OR THE ENVIRONMENT – EVEN IN THEORY.

RADIATION FROM THE PLANT WILL BE UNDETECTABLE OUTSIDE THE BOUNDARIES (of the plant).”

#####

3. QUOTE NICK TSURIKOV, INTERNATIONAL RADIATION SAFETY EXPERT WHO IS THE CO-AUTHOR OF IAEA RADIATION SAFETY REPORT:

“On dust particles – THERE IS NO WAY WHATSOEVER FOR

DUST PARTICLES OF AROUND 10 MICRONS TO GET INTO

THE LUNGS –

THE STUFF THAT GETS THERE IS 5 MICRONS OR LESS,..

The vast majority of the (Lynas) concentrate is either 10 MICRONS or above, SO THERE WOULD NOT BE ANY ISSUE HERE.”

#####

4. BECAUSE OF THE EXTREME LOW SPECIFIC ACTIVITY OF TH-232, THE AMOUNT OF DECAY PRODUCT IS MINUSCULE e.g.

Thorium-232 produced from the WLP per year is only about 95 tonnes and as such a 1 year accumulation of Th-232 produces only 0.5098 MICROGRAMS OF RADON-220/HR OR 0.00005172 ML (CC)/HR of Thoron gas at STP.

At secular equilibrium, the amount of daughter Radon-220 is only 167 femtograms per ton of Lynas WLP i.e.

0.000000000000167 grams.

THIS AMOUNT IS NOT ENOUGH TO TICKLE THE BACKSIDE OF A NEWBORN PIGMY BABY CATERPILLAR !

#####

5. THE longer the half-life of a substance, the less its radioactivity.

As an analogy, if it takes 14 billion years for half of a house to be burnt, there is no chance of anybody getting hurt. But if it takes only 14 minutes for half of the house to be burnt down, many will be injured or killed.

Thorium-232, which is found in the Lynas waste, has an incredibly long half-life of 14 billion years and as such is much less radioactive than the potassium-40 whose half-life is only 1.25 billion years

#####

6. LEAD-208 WHICH IS USED IN YOUR CAR BATTERIES HAVE AN EVEN LONGER HALF LIFE OF 19 MILLION BILLION YEARS AND AS SUCH IS REGARDED AS NON-RADIOACTIVE…i.e. it decays extremely slowly and therefore the radioactivity is incredible low!

So it’s silly and illogical to say that thorium long half life means that it is dangerous.. It means that is very only very weakly radioactive and can even be held in your hands!

#####

7. KEROSENE GAS MANTLES USED IN HAWKER’S LAMPS
THESE GAS MANTLES ARE MADE OF FABRIC SOAKED IN THORIUM-232 AND AFTER THE INITIAL “FIRING” BECOMES ALMOST PURE THORIUM DIOXIDE.

MILLIONS HAD HELD THESE “DANGEROUS, RADIOACTIVE” THORIUM GAS MANTLES IN THEIR HANDS.

REMEMBER THORIUM DIOXIDE HAS A SPECIFIC ACTIVITY OF 3,585 Bq/g ! THE “WASTE” FROM LYNAS IS ONLY 6 Bq/g.

WHY FRIGHTEN OF 6 Bq/g FROM WASTE AND NOT WORRIED ABOUT THE 3,585 Bq/g FROM THEIR KEROSENE LAMP ?

#####

8. THE ANNUAL DOSE RATE EXPOSURE

1. FROM MALAYSIAN CLAY BRICK HOUSE = 0.43 mSv/year
(215 x Lynas Worst Case Scenario)

2. SLEEPING IN WOODEN HOUSE = 0.20 mSv/yr
(100x Lynas worst case)

3. SLAG BRICK AND GRANITE HOUSE = up to 2.0 mSv/yr
(1,000x Lynas worst case)

SO TO ALL ANTI-LYNAS FOLKS, YOU SHOULD PITCH UP A TENT NEXT TO THE LYNAS PLANT AND SEND YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY TO LIVE NEXT TO LYNAS AS THIS IS HUNDREDS OF TIMES LESS RADIOACTIVE THAN LIVING IN YOUR PRESENT WOODEN OR BRICK HOUSES

#####

9.

1. WASTE FROM MALAYSIAN AMANG INDUSTRY > 100 Bq/g

2. WASTE “SCALE AND SLUDGE” IN OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY

________ LIKE IN PETRONAS = 1,000 Bq/g

3. and ___Lynas WLP only = 6 Bq/g !

SO WHY NO GREENIES PROTESTS AT THE MORE THAN 10 AMANG
( TIN TAILING ) PLANTS AND AT PETRONAS ?

#####

10 Nick Tsurikov, Radiation Safety Expert ” THE MAJORITY OF THIS LYNAS “WASTE” WILL HAVE ONLY HALF THE THORIUM THAN IN NORMAL MALAYSIAN SOIL.

Lynas residues are half as radioactive as the sand the kids all over Malaysia play in the kindergartens

If you do look through the Lynas RIA together with UN (not IAEA) reports –

you will clearly see that two most ‘voluminous’ residues from LAMP will have less than 12 parts per million of thorium –

and the average MALAYSIAN SOIL – 20 ppm OF THORIUM.

#####

11. IN MOST OF THE ADVANCED COUNTRIES LIKE THE USA, CANADA AND AUSTRALIA WHERE THERE ARE NO HALF BAKED SELF STYLED SCIENTISTS, ANY MATERIAL THAT HAS AN ACTIVITY OF LESS THAN 10 Bq/g is regarded as non-radioactive for transport and do not require any special permission.

LYNAS ORE = ONLY 6 Bq/g AND THEREFORE REQUIRES NO SPECIAL PERMISSION IN MOST OF THE DEVELOPED COUNTRIES.

#####

12. THE MOST BIOLOGICALLY DAMAGING FORMS OF GAMMA RAYS OCCUR IN THE GAMMA RAY WINDOW OF BETWEEN 3 MeV AND 10 MeV.

Those below 3.0 MeV are NOT very harmful. They have poor penetrating power and do not deposit much energy.

Those higher energy gamma rays of greater than 10 MeV are
NOT very harmful because the body is relatively transparent to them.

THE AVERAGE ENERGY OF THE MOST ABUNDANT EMISSION OF Th-232 IS ONLY 0.059 MeV.

#####

13. UNSCEAR ADMIT THAT THEY WERE WRONG TO IMPLY THAT THERE IS NO SAFE LEVEL OF RADIATION !

There IS a safe level !

UNSCEAR (THE UNITED NATIONS SCENTIFIC COMMITTEE ON THE EFFECTS OF ATOMIC RADIATION) HAS FINALLY ADMITTED THAT RADIATION DOSES LESS THAN ABOUT 10 rem (100 mSv ) per year ARE SAFE.

(Note: 100 mSv = 5,000,000 % Lynas worst case scenario)

#####

14. RADIATION EXPOSURE OF 100 mSv/yr IS SAFE: Prof WADE ALLISON

Nick Tsurikov, International Radiation Safety Expert:

“EXPERTS INCLUDING Professor WADE ALLISON OF OXFORD UNIVERSITY ARGUE THAT THE DOSE LIMIT CAN SAFELY BE RAISED TO 100 mSv, based on current health statistics.”

(100 mSv/yr = 50,000 times or 5,000,000% higher than Lynas worst case scenario)

#####

15. SLEEPING NEXT TO SOMEONE for 8 hrs/day
(e.g. your wife or husband) = 0.02 mSv (UNSCEAR)
(10x Lynas worst case)

SO DON’T SLEEP WITH YOUR WIFE OR HUSBAND since this is like sleeping next to 10 Lynas plants!

Dose in worst case scenario for Lynas plant = 0.002 mSv/yr

Malaysian Monazite Ore in Tin Tailings or Amang = 284 Bq/g or 69,608 ppm

Lynas ore and Lynas WLP “waste” ~ 6 Bq/g or < 1,600 ppm

#####

16. THE FINISHED PROCESSED RARE EARTH PRODUCT EMITS ONLY 0.156 mSv/yr ( A TARMAC ROAD EMITS 2.4 TO 2.6 mSv/yr ! ) – so a fraction of what people in everyday life naturally experience.

The radiation from a tarmac road comes from Thorium-232, Uranium-238, Potassium-40, Radium and other trace radionuclides in the Tar and the Granite stones.

#####

17. When the mother radionuclide has an extremely long half life and the daughters have very short half life, there is very little accumulation of the short half life daughters.

The concentration of the daughter radionuclides is negligible e.g. there is only 1 atom of Radium 224 for every 1.4 trillion atoms of Thorium-232 at equilibrium.

#####

18. As far as radon gas is concerned, it must be remembered that Radon-220 from the decay chain of Thorium-232 has a very short half life of only 55 seconds!

As such only a tiny amount of Radon-220 (a.k.a. Thoron) within a few centimetres of the surface of a huge pile of waste will be able to live long enough to escape from the pile and see the light of day!

#####

19. A lot of people have mistaken Radon-220 from Thorium-232 decay series with the more notorious Radon-222 which has a much longer half life of 3.8 days. Radon-222 comes from Uranium-238 decay series.

Because of its much longer half life, Radon-222 can and do accumulate in the cellars and poorly ventilated areas of domestic dwellings. Radon-222 is the gas that has been linked to lung cancers in especially non-smokers.

#####

20. K-40 is always in your body, Th-232 is never in your body in any significant amount.

Since the average absorbed Beta energy of K-40 decay is 499 keV and the average absorbed Gamma energy is 156 keV,

THE INTERNAL DOSAGE from K-40 ~ 0.24 mSv/yr:
(120x Lynas worst case scenario)

So why complain about radiation from Lynas when there is the equivalent of 120 Lynas plants producing radiation already inside your body in the form of Potassium-40 !

#####

21. AS STATED BY MORMAN FREDERICK MOORE, THE AUSTRALIAN MINISTER FOR MINES AND PETROLEUM, IF LYNAS HAVE CHOSEN TO OPERATE IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA, IT WOULD BE WELCOMED WITH OPEN ARMS !

1. Alkane has decided to build a multi-billion dollar rare earth plant in the outskirts of Sydney.

2. Arafura is building a huge Rare Earth Processing Plant costing over A$1 Billion in Whyalla in South Australia.

#####

22. Since the average absorbed Beta energy of K-40 decay is 499 keV and the average absorbed Gamma energy is 156 keV,

THE INTERNAL DOSAGE from K-40 ~ 0.24 mSv/yr:
(120x Lynas worst case scenario)

So why complain about radiation from Lynas when there is the equivalent of 120 Lynas plants producing radiation already inside your body in the form of Potassium-40 !

####

23. There is no natural way for Metallic Thorium or insoluble Thorium compounds or even soluble salts when adsorbed with clay, to enter the body in any significant amount and as Nick Tsurikov, International Radiation Safety Expert and Co-author of IAEA Radiation Safety Report says

"THORIUM IN 'WASTE' IS INSOLUBLE AND CANNOT POISON ANY PLANTS, ANIMALS OR THE ENVIRONMENT – EVEN IN THEORY." Unquote.

There has not been a single death or injury that has been definitely and conclusively proven beyond any scientific doubt from the accidental inhalation or ingestion of Thorium-232 !

Compare this with death caused by Water i.e. from drowning… 388,000 drowning deaths in 2004 alone (WHO).

####

24. Metallic Thorium or it's insoluble compounds are chemically innocuous and inert especially when adsorbed by clay.

Soluble form in the absence of clay absorption = 0.02 to 0.05%.
With clay, much much less.

Studies show that a small number out of the 4 million patients who were given this massive dose of 1 or 2 vials (containing 5.58g to 11.7g of thorium) of Thorotrast, developed cancer especially of the liver 20 to 30 years later in their old age.

Even if we ignore the incredibly strong adsorption to clay, in order to get 5.58g of thorium-232 (equivalent to 1 vial of Thorotrast), we have to swallow an incredible 17,000kg or 17 tonnes of Lynas waste!

Even with 11.7 g of Th-232 given parenterally, no acute toxicity noted.

####

25. Thorium-232 is not a Carcinogen (cancer causing agent) if Inhaled or Ingested according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer IARC.

Thorium-232 is considered to be a carcinogen only IF ADMINISTERED INTRAVENOUSLY AS A COLLOIDAL DISPERSION OF THORIUM-232 DIOXIDE.

Even this may not be true as the carcinogenic effects of the massive dose of Xray from those antique Xray machines (about 1,000 mSv per fluoroscopy and some of the 4 million patients may have had more than one fluoroscopy done in their lifetime) was not taken in consideration when IARC came to the conclusion that Th-232 given parenterally is a carcinogen.

26. Study by scientists at John Hopkins University published in 1988 by American Journal of Epidemiology, concluded that, their study plus the fact that there is NO CONGENITAL DEFECTS DEMONSTRATED IN STUDIES ON THE ATOMIC BOMB SURVIVORS IN HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI, suggests that

LOW DOSE RADIATION CANNOT CAUSE CONGENITAL DEFECTS.

Even UNSCEAR has now admitted THAT RADIATION DOSES of LESS THAN ABOUT 10 rem (100 mSv ) per year ARE SAFE.

(Note: 100 mSv = 5,000,000 % Lynas worst case scenario)

27. The average Malaysian soil ~ 20 parts per million of thorium

So the top metre of soil (SG ~ 2.5) in a Malaysian garden of 10 x 40 metres will contain

20 Kilograms of thorium-232 ! or

81,600,000 Bq of activity !

####

28. COMPARISON OF RADIOACTIVITY IN Bq (number of atoms decaying in 1second)

Pure Thorium-232 = 4,080 Bq/gm

Pure Potassium-40 = 254,000 Bq/gm

Naturally Occurring Potassium (3 different isotopes) in our body and food = 31.825 Bq/gm

Artificially created Plutonium-238 = 634,000,000,000 Bq/gm (1/2 life=87.7 years)

Polonium-210 from Uranium-238 decay = 166,000,000,000,000 Bq/gm (1/2 life=138 days)

Monazite ore from Amang or Tin Tailings in Malaysia = 284 Bq/gm

Lynas Rare Earth Waste = 6 Bq/gm

29. Christoph Wilhelm from the Karlsruhr Institute of Technology, the man in charge of decommissioning Germany’s nuclear plants inspected the LAMP re radiation safety and made the comment

“I would move my wife and young children to live in that plant because the background radiation is lower than where I live in Germany.”

MALAYSIA IS NOT A DEMOCRACY WITH PROPORTIONAL REPRESENTATION.

AS SUCH IF A SEGMENT OF THE POPULATION OF A CERTAIN RELIGION HAVE ONLY 50.001% OF THE VOTES, THEY CAN STATISTICALLY END UP WITH ALL THE 222 PARLIAMENTARY SEATS i.e. 100% of the seats!

Remember, our Muslim Brothers and Sisters now make up about 61% to 65% of our population (depending on who you ask).

And because of this fact alone, there is a more than just a probability (50.001% = Possibility) that they can end up with more than a 2/3rd majority.

So getting 2/3rd majority and have the Constitution changed, is not a problem at all.

At present our Muslim Brothers have more than 130 parliamentary seats (again depending who you ask). However, this does not matter anymore as what is important is the present status of seats which are predominantly Muslim and that which are not.

What the data below shows is that our Muslim Brothers who already make up about 61% of the population, will have more than the 148 seats majority required to have the constitution changed, because of the more rapid increase in the number of Muslim new voters, altering a large number of the marginal mixed seats to that of Muslim majority seats.

Data for the coming general election:

Of the 165 parliamentary constituencies in the Peninsula, less than 16% are definitely predominantly non-Muslim i.e. about 26 constituencies..

For the 57 constituencies in East Malaysia, about half are predominantly Muslim.

Non-Muslim majority constituencies should be much less now because since the last election, from 2009 to 2011, 2.9 million (22%) more voters have registered and the majority of new voters (well over ~ 60%) are Muslims (data for 2012 not available).

In 2009, Malays made up 187,828 of the new voters or 67.3 per cent, Chinese 19.8 per cent and Sarawak bumiputeras 4.8 per cent while in 2010, Malays comprised 466,137 of the new voters or 56.4 per cent, Chinese 27 per cent and Indians 6.6 per cent.

In 2011, the breakdown was 611,498 or 60.6 per cent Malays, 22 per cent Chinese and 6.7 per cent Indians.

The 14% Peninsular marginal seats ( ~23 seats) was magically converted into Non-Muslim majority seats by certain people in their so called well-researched data, and as a result of this, they claim that it is impossible for our Muslim Brothers to get a 2/3rd majority.

HOWEVER, AS A RESULT OF THE INCREASE OF WELL OVER 22% OF NEW VOTERS, THE MAJORITY OF WHOM ARE MUSLIMS from 2008 to 2011(more new voters for the year 2012 not included), most of the so-called marginal seats are now Muslim majority seats.

BECAUSE OF THIS, THE NUMBER OF MUSLIM MAJORITY SEATS MAY WELL EXCEED THE 2/3rd MAJORITY OF 148 SEATS IN THE COMING GENERAL ELECTION (nobody really knows as the data are not available and I stand to be corrected when the data is freely available).

If the motion for Hudud is tabled in the new Parliament, all our Muslim Brothers in the parliament will be morally obliged to vote for it.

Even if the motion for Hudud is prevented from being tabled, and if there is no objection from the ruling party (according to one source which may or may not be true, the leader of the opposition has already said he will allow states which want Hudud to do so), states like Terengganu, Kelantan, Perlis and Kedah, Hudud may be implemented under the present religious laws.

There has been recently an incessant call to TRADE IN THE SO CALLED “CORRUPT” AUTOCRATIC SHAH FOR THE THEOCRATIC AYATOLLAH who is INCORRUPTIBLE, GOOD AND DIVINE IN INTENTION BUT unfortunately is INHUMANE IN EXECUTION.

However we must remember that corruption is probably the 2nd oldest profession after prostitution and it is virtually impossible to completely clean out all corruption.

Even so-called corruption free countries like Singapore, UK and the USA, DO HAVE corrupt people except corruption in these places are not as rampant or as blatant as in some places.

Almost totally corruption free countries, like Iran, North Korea and the old East Germany are pretty gloomy places to live in and raise your family.

Malaysia, though not a country full of Saints, Sugar and Honey, is in fact a reasonably corruption free well run place and is, compared to many many countries, a very beautiful and safe place for your family.

OTHERWISE, WHY IS IT THAT OVER 3 MILLION OR SO LEGAL AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WOULD WANT TO COME HERE TO WORK AND RAISE THEIR FAMILIES ?

May the Good Lord bless this beautiful country.

A COUNTRY’S CONSTITUTION IS NOT SET IN STONE.

The non-Muslim community of this country should know the following:

1. Our Muslim Brothers have about 2/3rd of the seats in Parliament at present (I stand to be corrected) and definitely much more in the near future.

Of the 165 parliamentary constituencies in the Peninsula, only 16% predominantly non-Muslim.

For the 57 constituencies in East Malaysia, more than half are predominantly Muslim.

The Muslim population in Malaysia is now over 65%.

Malaysia is NOT a democracy with PROPORTIONAL representation. As such if a segment of the population of a certain religion have only 50.001% of the votes, they can statistically end up with ALL i.e.100% of the seats.

So getting 2/3rd majority and have the Constitution changed, is not a problem at all.

2. Once the motion for Hudud Law is tabled in the Parliament, ALL Muslims have a religious obligation to vote FOR it and NEVER against it.

That’s why the two BN representatives in Kelantan voted FOR the motion ?

3. In a report (I stand to be corrected), it was alleged that the leader of a certain opposition party has said that HE WOULD ALLOW ANY STATE THAT WANTS HUDUD TO DO SO.

PAS SECRETARY-GENERAL DATUK MUSTAFA ALI spoke to Sin Chew Daily in an interview over the hudud issue recently.

Asked if Muslim MPs from the Barisan Nasional would support PAS if it moves a motion to amend the constitution to pave the way for hudud, he said:

“Even if we do this in the Parliament, Umno will not agree to implement hudud.

“BUT SINCE THEY ARE MUSLIMS, THEY CANNOT OPPOSE IT..”

Again according to the Sinchew Newspaper : “PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu was alleged to have said in an interview,

“PAS has decided that it will seek constitutional amendment in the Parliament

TO IMPLEMENT THE HUDUD LAW ONCE THE

PAKATAN TAKES THE HELM OF THE FEDERAL

ADMINISTRATION.”

Kindly note: Once the motion for Hudud Law is tabled in the Parliament, ALL Muslims have a religious obligation and MUST vote FOR it.

ALL NON-MUSLIMS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THIS AND MUST THINK VERY CAREFULLY BEFORE THEY CAST THEIR VOTE.

THIS NEXT GENERAL ELECTION WILL AFFECT NOT ONLY THE PRESENT GENERATION BUT ALL YOUR DESCENDANTS.

SO PLEASE THINK OF YOUR DESCENDANTS AND THINK VERY CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU TRADE IN THE AUTOCRATIC SHAH FOR THE THEOCRATIC AYATOLLAH who is good, incorruptible and divine in intention but inhumane in execution!

ONCE HUDUD LAW IS IMPLEMENTED IT WILL BE FOR THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF YEARS AND CAN NEVER BE REVOKED !

And as one writer said,

“Under Hudud, if Lim Kit Siang, Karpal Singh and Mahathir were caught stealing,

Mahathir will have his hand chopped off, whereas Lim and Karpal will only be fined a couple of hundred ringgit!

In the eyes of the law, this is definitely not fair.

SINCE MOST ADVOCATES OF HUDUD BELIEVE THAT HUDUD IS A DIVINE LAW, AND SO TO BE FAIR TO ALL MUSLIMS AND THE REST OF THE POPULATION, HUDUD SHOULD, MUST AND ULTIMATELY WILL BE APPLIED TO ALL MANKIND, IRRESPECTIVE OF RACE, RELIGION OR STATUS !

TO ALL THOSE NON-MUSLIMS WHO BELIEVE THAT

NON-MUSLIMS ARE NOT COVERED BY THE

HUDUD LAW,

PLEASE GO TO ONE OF THE MIDDLE EASTERN

COUNTRIES WHERE HUDUD IS PRACTICED AND

ROB SOMEONE OF SOMETHING SIGNIFICANT.

THEN ADMIT TO THE POLICE IN THAT COUNTRY

THAT “THEY HAVE A HAND IN THE CRIME”.

IF HE OR SHE COMES BACK WITH BOTH HANDS INTACT,

THEN I WILL ADMIT THAT I AM WRONG AND

THEY ARE RIGHT.

BUT IF HE OR SHE COMES BACK WITH ONLY ONE

HAND FOR HAVING A HAND IN THE ROBBERY,

THEN I AM RIGHT AND THEY ARE WRONG !

(Remember: A country’s constitution is not set in stone !)

Quote: “That’s why PAS intends to implement Hudud through the proper way – in Parliament. If the majority of Malaysians want Hudud and through 2/3 of the MPs in Parliament that represent them, decide to implement Hudud, is it right for the minority to deny them that?

That’s democracy at work. That’s also our Perlembagaan at work. Minority will have their say just that they get outvoted by the majority.” Unquote.

Answer:

Your argument reminds me of a story of 3 men stranded on a remote island

with no hope of rescue for a long, long time.

After a few weeks, they ran out of food,

SO TWO OF THEM GANG UP AND DECIDED TO KILL AND

EAT THE 3rd MAN.

SO THE TWO PUT IT TO A DEMOCRATIC VOTE AND

MANAGED TO GET A 2/3rd MAJORITY.

SINCE THESE 2 MEN HAVE A 2/3rd DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY

WE SHOULD SHUT UP, SAY NOTHING ABOUT THEIR CRIME

BUT JUST CELEBRATE THE TRIUMPH OF DEMOCRACY

OVER ANARCHY ! ! !

AS YOU SAID, THAT’S HOW DEMONCRAZY WORKS ! ! !

Quote: ” So, you rather we don’t have democracy?” Unquote.

Answer:

We should have democracy but we should not embrace any concept absolutely without any reservations and absolutely without getting any advice from that part of our brain that computes logic and from that part of our brain that controls our morality and empathy.

Since democracy is developed by humans, IT IS NOT PERFECT.

The majority is NOT ALWAYS RIGHT.

THEY MAY BE NUMERICALLY AND STATISTICALLY

RIGHT BUT NEVER, MORALLY OR EVEN LOGICALLY,

ALWAYS RIGHT !

IN A REAL AND TRUE DEMOCRACY, THE MINORITY

HAS TO BE PROTECTED AND THE DESIRES OR WILL

OF THE SO-CALLED MAJORITY SHOULD, IN CERTAIN

CIRCUMSTANCES, BE PUT ASIDE AND IGNORED IF

THE RIGHTS OF THE MINORITY ARE BEING INFRINGED ON,

OR ENCROACHED ON OR TRANSGRESSED UPON !

May Our Good Lord bless this beautiful country.

To sin by silence when we should protest makes cowards of people - Emily Cox

Siphoning EPF money

On 'Why should Valuecap borrow from EPF?' Syed Shahir Syed Mohamud: MTUC condemns the government's move to bail out Valuecap to support the local stock market using RM5 billion from EPF, as the provident fund is the custodian of the workers' money and not some sort of ‘automated teller machine' for the government.
If at all the EPF were to lend its money to the government, it has to be under the condition that there be transparency and accountability in the activities for which the money has been purposed. We want to know who is doing what with the money that belongs to the workers. This is the hard-earned money of the workers, their retirement plan. How is this bailout plan going to benefit the workers? We also question the reason for this bailout. If the economic fundamentals in Malaysia are strong and reserves sufficient as has been stated several times by the government, then why is there a need to offer so much money to the GLCs? Second Finance Minister Nor Mohamed Yakcop should prove how the EPF would profit from this loan. Bernama had reported that Nor had given the assurance that the loan given out by EPF would reap profits for the fund judging from Valuecap's past performance. But where is the paperwork and calculations to show that this move will benefit the EPF? MTUC is concerned that the loan might be mismanaged or misused and this, in turn, would affect the returns for the contributors. Mere assurances are not enough. We want to proof that this RM5 billion will not go down the drain. (The writer is president, MTUC). Sharyn: The government wants to use our pension money to prop up the Malaysian stock market which is the playing field of the rich people. If so, the government must ensure that the EPF account holders - who are predominantly the poor to average citizens of Malaysia - be guaranteed all of our pension money with a compound 8% growth (interest). It's so selfish and sick of the government to use the poor's pension money to help the rich to make more money with all the risks taken by the poor/average citizen. We can better use the RM% billion loans to Valuecap for our children's education, shelter, medical bills etc. Why not get those rich people to prop up the share market instead? Why should they park their money overseas and gamble with our EPF money instead? Kumar14: Who is behind this Valuecap organisation? Why suddenly, this separate entity is allowed to access funds from the EPF? Are they capable enough to handle it or is it just another desperate and blind move? It has been a very infamous trend where the people's funds are channeled to a company for investment purposes and suddenly POP! the funds disappear and there is nobody to be held responsible but a RM2 shell company. Charge who? Sue whom? The RM2 company (just a registered name)? We have seen this many times. People in power and with connections allow such things to go through and reap/rob the people's wealth and then blame it on organisations which actually don't exist. What if a lot of EPF funds are looted via such scams and nobody is to be pointed at? Where will the government get the funds to replenish the EPF? The people are very bored, disappointed, angry and frustrated at seeing all these dumb and unaccounted for measures being allowed by the government with lame excuses. Please, somebody verify the true purpose, integrity and capability of anybody attempting to use the people's fund.
