Lee Kuan Yew and his son's
Two days ago, 32 year old Singaporean Mohamad Khalid Mohamad, was arrested when he scrawled the word “democracy” on a
Such a beating is not only cruel and unusual punishment prohibited under law in all democracies, the lengthy sentence and the expected life long persecution that he will suffer as expected of this vindictive and cowardly island dictatorship, with employment termination, police surveillance and harassment is totally unacceptable by the international community.
Mohamad Khalid Mohamad stands a good chance of permanently moving to the
Furthermore he is a Malay, a minority racially discriminated by the Lee Kuan Yew government, and the fact that he is forever a marked man in Lee's tiny Singapore island, these arguments together gives him a very good chance at asylum in the USA.
What is even more important for his asylum is the contents of the graffiti. It was not a mere meaningless scribbling, as we see in most graffiti, but the word "Democracy" boldly written. It can be be interpreted as a demand for democracy which Mr. Mohamad finds lacking in his tiny island city state which is for all intents and purposes, nothing but a dictatorship run by the Lee Kuan Yew and Son, the father and son team for the last 52 years.

A few days before Mr. Mohamad, Leslie Chew, a 37 year old cartoonist was arrested for writing cartoons which offended the Lee Kuan Yew government.
One cartoon, an admirable one especially since Leslie Chew is himself an ethnic Chinese, had a government official praising foreign Chinese Indian and Caucasian immigrants as having made great contributions to Singapore. Another person asked why Malays were not equally honored to which another said, "racial discrimination". Although ethnic Chinese himself, he was standing up for his racially discriminated Malay fellow citizens.

Malays are also kept out of senior military positions and are completely barred from being pilots in the air force presumably because Lee Kuan Yew is afraid that one of them might do a kamikaze or jihad and crash his plane into Lee Kuan Yew's house in

There is no need for you to go through this. Simply tell them that you are coming for a short holiday. You will then be allowed to leave the airport. Once outside, you can then file the asylum application which will be heard by an asylum officer directly without your having to go through the credible fear interview first. Remember this. It is very important.

One last point. There is no danger to you in filing asylum. The US State Department or the
And once you are citizens, you can apply for your parents to join you. If you are married, your spouse and children under 21 can join you once you have obtained asylum provided you have included their names in the application.
America is a huge wide country and your prospects are simply unlimited. The sky is the limit. All you have to do is to grab it. Which is why the US continues to be the most attractive country to go to. Here everyone can make it, if they only try. Which is why I have come to America; because I refused to dance to the tune of a tin pot island dictator.
Americans are the kind of people such as Mohamad Khalid Mohamad and Leslie Chew, people with some guts and some self respect, not like the many other Singapore islanders who eat humble pie in the island to please Lee Kuan Yew and company, although I can see that more and more are becoming emboldened like both of you are.
It may be difficult but if possible do not plead guilty to these nonsensical charges. If you remain adamant and refuse to budge, and if Lee and Company are forced to send you to jail, it will only make your case stronger.
I have a great deal of experience in these cases and my unique understanding of the workings of the father and son team, Lee Kuan Yew and son, who have been running that tiny island for the last 52 years makes me excellently qualified to represent you. And what better qualification can there be for me, when I too have gone through these very experiences that you are now going through.
