PETALING JAYA: The United Nations General Assembly and The UN Security Council need to be firm in enforcing international and human right laws to end the violent acts of Israel's Zionist regime on the Palestinians, says the Dewan Negara Caucus of People's Well-Being.

Caucus chairman Senator Datuk Razali Idris said the two organisations must put their foot down and take action on the alleged war crimes that violate the Fourth Geneva Convention 1949.

"We hope that the Israel-Palestinian conflict can be best solved through negotiations that result in long-term regional peace," he said in a statement on Sunday (May 16).

He said the caucus also supported Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin's move in joining Indonesian President Joko Widodo and Brunei's Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah in condemning Israel's attack on Palestine and called for an end to the violence.

Razali also called on all Malaysians, including NGOs, corporate bodies and political parties to unite and condemn Israel's attacks on Palestine.

"The Caucus also supports the Prime Minister's view that a two-state solution would be the fairest solution to the conflict and should be based borders drawn before 1967 with Jerusalem being the capital of Palestine.

"This is the only solution to the conflict," he said.

On Saturday (May 15), Muhyiddin said Malaysia would take the lead in issuing a joint statement with Indonesia and Brunei to condemn Israel's attacks on Palestine.

The agreement was reached after his telephone call with the Indonesian leader and Muhyiddin said he had also liaised with Brunei's Sultan Hassanal to discuss the actions of the three neighbouring Southeast Asian countries regarding current developments in Palestine.

Health DG: Ivermectin will not be used to treat Covid-19, no evidence of efficacy

Author: savemalaysia   |  Publish date: Sun, 16 May 2021, 7:19 PM


PETALING JAYA: The drug Ivermectin will not be used in Malaysia to treat Covid-19 as there is no evidence to back its effectiveness, says Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

"The National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency (NPRA) said there were no products containing Ivermectin as its active ingredient that is registered with the Drug Control Authority (DCA) that can be consumed by humans," he said.

He said other bodies including the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) did not recommend nor approve the use of Ivermectin to treat or prevent Covid-19 because of the lack of scientific evidence.

"For the time being, the World Health Organisation only allows Ivermectin in clinical trials to treat Covid-19.

"Therefore, the use of Ivermectin in Malaysia can only be used in clinical trials," he said.

Ivermectin is generally used to treat parasitic infestations.

Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah also said there were also 11 new clusters, four of which were linked to educational institutions in Selangor and Johor.

Three clusters were linked to the community in Kelantan, Sarawak and Perak; two were linked to workplaces in Selangor and Sabah; and another two linked to religious institutions in Johor and Sabah.

"There are now 470 active clusters in the country out of a total 1,887 recorded clusters," he said in a statement on Sunday (May 16).

However, 36 more people died of the virus on Sunday bringing the death toll to 1,902.

The dead were aged between 29 and 90, most of whom had co-morbidities and only one out of the deceased was a non-citizen.

Various parties, organisations firmly back Malaysian govt’s stand on Palestine issue

Author: savemalaysia   |  Publish date: Sun, 16 May 2021, 7:17 PM


KUALA LUMPUR, May 16 — Various parties and organisations today expressed strong support for Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s address yesterday and the government’s stance for Israel’s atrocities to be stopped immediately.

Perikatan Nasional (PN) described the prime minister’s message yesterday on various regional aid and efforts as proof of Malaysia’s determination to want thorough solutions and justice for the Palestinian people.

PN, in a statement today, also called and urged leaders of countries around the world to immediately condemn the tyranny and violence perpetrated against the Palestinian people.

“We stand in solidarity with the Palestinians who continue to be oppressed and thrown out from their homeland. The ethnic cleansing and apartheid system practised by the Zionist regime must be stopped immediately,” the statement read.

PN also called on all Malaysians to show solidarity with the Palestinians and pray that they are given patience, help and victory in efforts to preserve their dignity and rights, besides also making contributions through the #Aid4Palestine campaign or through other legitimate channels.

The Dewan Negara People’s Well-being Caucus Committee, meanwhile, called on all Malaysians, including non-governmental organisations, corporate bodies and political parties to unite in condemning Israel’s despicable actions against the Palestinian people.

Its chairman, Senator Datuk Razali Idris in a statement today, said the caucus is in line with the principled stand of the Malaysian government which has consistently given strong political, economic and moral support to Palestine and the struggles of its people.

“... the best solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict can only be reached through negotiations to ensure lasting regional peace, security and stability,” he said.

The Muslim Lawyers Association of Malaysia (PPMM) also expressed full support for the government’s efforts in ensuring the rights and struggles of the Palestinian people over the decades in defending the third holiest city in Islam.

PPMM deputy president Muhamad Hisham Marzuki in a statement expressed his appreciation to the government which through the Prime Minister’s special address yesterday strengthened its stand on the struggles of the Palestinian people by providing diplomatic, logistical and moral support.

The Malaysian Youth Council (MBM) called on youths in the country to contribute in their respective capacities such as by praying, donating, sharing information and through online activism, including using TikTok to stop violence and defend humanity in Palestine.

Global Peace Mission (GPM) Malaysia, a synergy partner of MBM, has launched the #MyAqsaDefender campaign for the purpose of raising immediate cash aid for economic development and education with a target of RM10 million.

“MBM as a stakeholder for youths would like to call on Malaysians across racial and religious boundaries to be aware of current global issues,” the statement read. — Bernama

Covid-19: Labuan’s Layang-Layangan cluster enters fifth generation, says Health Dept director

Author: savemalaysia   |  Publish date: Sun, 16 May 2021, 7:17 PM


LABUAN, May 16 — The Layang-Layangan Covid-19 cluster has reached its fifth generation, turning the duty-free island into a red zone today, said Labuan Health Department director Dr Ismuni Bohari.

“Labuan has been declared a Covid-19 red zone, after having recorded over 40 cases in the past 14 days.

“We have done our level best to contain the spread, but unfortunately, certain groups of people chose to ignore the Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs) and had family gatherings on the beach, birthday celebration in a food court,” he told Bernama.

He said the Layang-Layangan cluster, which emerged on May 5, originated from seven Indian nationals and five Malaysians who arrived at the island from the Peninsula via Labuan Airport early this month.

It has 45 cases as of today, including two cases detected in Kuala Lumpur, two in Selangor and one case in Kedah.

Dr Ismuni said the cluster had infected a number of locals, including primary school pupils, the local community and others in an Indian temple.

He said the withholding of information by some Covid-19 positive patients or close contacts had led to the spike in cases.

“We have to redouble our efforts to trace the close contacts of positive patients to the fifth generation, to the extent of having to liaise with private clinics to contain the spread.

“As the Layang-Layangan cluster has spread to schools, a temple and the local community, it is important for the people to continue to adhere to the SOPs. (Please) avoid large crowds and crowded places during a viral pandemic,” he said.

Labuan has cumulative infections of 2,517 with one active cluster of Layang-Layangan and 14 deaths as of today. — Bernama

KUALA LUMPUR, May 16 — Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said Hamas political bureau chief Ismail Haniyeh, who is now in Doha, Qatar, telephoned him yesterday to update him on the latest situation in Palestine.

The prime minister said he was very disturbed on hearing from the Hamas leader the plight of Muslims in Palestine, especially in the Gaza Strip which was so heart-breaking.

“On behalf of the people of Malaysia, I expressed my condolences and sadness on the loss of lives and injuries inflicted on Palestinians by the Israeli regime’s vicious attacks,” he said in a posting on his official Facebook page today.

Muhyiddin said Ismail expressed his utmost appreciation to Malaysians for their continued extension of aid to Palestinians and concern over the plight of the people in Palestine.

In reaffirming Malaysia’s support for the Palestinian struggle, the prime minister said Malaysia was continuing with efforts to fight for the rights of Palestinians even when they were facing these difficult times. — Bernama

Foreign minister: Lack of political will in addressing Palestinian plight should no longer be tolerated

Author: savemalaysia   |  Publish date: Sun, 16 May 2021, 7:17 PM


KUALA LUMPUR, May 16 — As more homes are being demolished, more deaths are occurring, and more misery is being inflicted on the Palestinians, ‘lack of political will’ should no longer be tolerated as an excuse to perpetuate Israel’s occupation further.

Malaysian Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said it is clear the bloodshed committed against the Palestinians has to end, along with Israel’s impunity in committing untold atrocities, and Israel as perpetrators of these heinous crimes should also be held accountable.

“While unintentional, we have shamefully contributed to encouraging the Occupying Power through our inaction.  Malaysia takes the floor today to echo the strong views expressed around the table on the urgent need to take bold action to salvage the situation on the ground,” he said.

Hishammuddin said this during the virtual open-ended extraordinary meeting for the OIC Executive Committee at the level of the foreign ministers, today. His speech text which included Malaysia’s six recommendations on the way forward for OIC in addressing the plight of the Palestinians was made available to the media.

While Malaysia has strongly and publicly demanded Israel to immediately cease its hostilities and attacks against Palestine, the international community cannot choose to remain silent and oblivious to these atrocities committed by Israel.

“It is an insult when other countries come out and speak about the right of Israel to self-defence, and not a single word about the Palestinian right to self-defence when Palestinians are slaughtered, and have been occupied for over 50 years,” he pointed out

Malaysia has continuously and consistently condemned in the strongest terms the incursion and attacks by the Israeli Occupation Forces against Palestinian civilians and worshippers in Al-Aqsa Mosque, all forced evictions of Palestinians from their homes and Israel’s continued military airstrikes on the Gaza Strip since last week, he said.

These atrocious, disproportionate, and excessive attacks by Israel are in total and blatant disregard of all international laws, furthermore they are in violation of the United Nations (UN) Charter, and a war crime under the 1949 Fourth Geneva Convention.           

Hishammuddin also relayed Malaysia’s six recommendations for OIC on how best to move forward with the first calling the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to rectify its failure and shoulder its responsibility in maintaining peace and security, with Israel made to fully comply with all its obligations as prescribed by relevant UNSC resolutions.

Secondly, in ensuring the safety of Palestinians, the OIC needs to urge the UN to provide international protection for the Occupied Palestinian Territory, in line with international humanitarian law, particularly the Geneva Conventions, to ensure accountability for all parties to the conflict.

Third, the international community, particularly OIC members, should robustly pursue all legal, political, and economic channels to pressure Israel. On this front, Malaysia has recently worked closely with Indonesia and Brunei to jointly condemn the Israeli attacks against Palestinians.

Fourth, OIC members need to urge civil society worldwide to continue their struggle to call for accountability and highlight gross violations of international law, including international humanitarian and human rights law, in the Occupied Palestinian Territory.

Fifth, while addressing the current crisis, the international community must continue to find a lasting solution to the conflict, including addressing urgently the root cause of the conflict and return to a meaningful peace process to end the Israeli occupation.

Sixth and finally, Malaysia stresses the importance for all OIC members to remain united in supporting the plight of the Palestinians because without unity, the Muslim Ummah will falter into disarray.

He said peace in the region cannot be realized without an independent State of Palestine, based on the pre-1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as the capital. This is the only viable solution to the Palestinian-Israel conflict.

“To this end, I believe and remain convinced that the OIC must continue to play a central role to take all maximum possible efforts to protect Palestinians against Israel’s hostile acts,” he said ending his speech. — Bernama
