North Korea's Allies in Beijing, Terror Attacks in Mindanao, Islamic
Law in Malaysia

Global Crisis Watch calls to New York City, Manila and Penang,

enforce the Chapter VII UNSC resolutions, the terror attacks in
Mindanao and hunt for JI bombers Dulmatin and Umar Patek, and the
looming constitutional crisis faced in Malaysia over civil law versus
sharia law with Lt. Col. Gordon Cucullu, author of "Separated at Birth:
How North Korea Became the Evil Twin," Maria Ressa, ABS-CBN News

Notable Quotes
"What I am hearing from all of my sources is that the same people who
paid for the missile test on July 4th of this year - that is, the
Iranians - also paid in whole or in part for this nuclear test."
- Lt. Col. Gordon Cucullu

"(Abu Sayyaf has) really come out of the kind of kidnap-for-ransom
mode. They've now linked up with Jemaah Islamiyah; Khadaffy Janjalani
was a key man in that happen. JI helped link Abu Sayyaf with the Rajah
Solaiman Movement, which gives both the MILF and the Abu Sayyaf reach
into the northern parts of the Philippines. The RSM are Christian
converts so they speak Tagalog, the local dialect, without any southern
accent, without any hint that they come from the south. If you talk
about profiling, they would not fit the profile. They can merge into
the capitol (and) into the northern Christian cities so it's much
harder for law enforcement to actually be able to track them down."
- Maria Ressa

"If (the Islamic Party of Malaysia) was to win the election, the first
thing that they would do is expand the implementation of Islamic laws
in all areas of life. In fact, the party is the government of one
state, since we have a federal system here. So they actually rule one
of the states in Malaysia, Kelantan, and they have passed the sharia
laws extensively. Sharia laws at the moment are only limited to family
law. But in Kelantan, they have expanded sharia laws to also include
criminal laws. Except at the moment there is a problem becaue they
cannot implement the laws unless the federal constitution also passes
the law. So it is a kind of a law waiting to be implemented. Although
it was passed by the state legislature, at any time whenever there is a
set of events, say one day the federal government is taken over by the
Islamic Party, definitely Islamic law will be implemented. So this is
what we are worrying about, the people of Malaysia. Though although at
the one can go on, one can conduct his business in a normal way, there
is something hanging up there and we don't know what, in fact, that
will have upon the non-Muslim population."
- Dr. Maznah Mohamad
