The website of the American-based National Democratic Institute (NDI) has confirmed that it sponsors and supports BERSIH.
The website (www.ndi.org) reported that “The NDI programs in Malaysia are sponsored by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED).
NDI is headed by former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who was among the key supporters of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim when the former Deputy Prime Minister was dismissed from UMNO on September 2, 1998.
NDI is among the four operation components of the NED.
Besides the NDI, the other three are the IRI (International Republican Institute), ACILS (the American Center for International Labor Solidarity) and CIPE
(Centre for International Private Enterprise).
Allen Weinstein, who helped draft the legislation establishing NED confirmed that the NED’s operations is similar to what the CIA had done in the past.
Among those within the think tank of the Jewish façade of the NED is Malaysia’s very own Anwar Ibrahim.
Anwar’s involvement with the NED was revealed in a letter exposed by his former private secretary Rahimi Osman, in which the de facto PKR leader requested funds for the organisation to help underwrite its campaigns for the 12th General Elections.
The letter, signed by Anwar Ibrahim dated June 18, 2007 using the address of his U.S. base at AIA, 585, Grove Street, Suite 135, Hendon, Virginia 20170 was sent to the NED a few months ahead of the 12th General Elections.
This proof of the link between Anwar and the NED is corroborated by the money trails that led to the NDI in its efforts to power pro-Anwar Malaysian opposition parties and NGOs.
In February 2005 the NDI launched a programme in Malaysia aimed to encourage open discussions of the laws and the government. The idea was to encourage transparent and democratic communications between them and the public.
According to the NDI the programme fostered dialogue between political parties and civil society – dialogue on reformation that aimed to strengthen constituent parties, development and improving communication skills.
NDI admitted that it held several workshops in collaboration with a Malaysian NGO, REFSA, which is involved in leadership training and organisational management for BERSIH.
The periodic training by NDI in Malaysia started in 2005 through 2006 and 2007 as preparations for the General Elections in 2008.
REFSA, which stands for Research for Social Advancement operates out of 4A, Jalan Sepadu, Taman Bersatu, Jalan Klang Lama, Kuala Lumpur. Headed by Member of Parliament for Bukit Bendera, Liew Chin Tong, REFSA is seen as the DAP’s think tank.
Other than REFSA, the other NGOs who are members of BERSIH include Amnesty International Malaysia (AIM), All Women’s Action Society (AWAM), Centre for Independent Journalism (CIJ), Komuniti Masyarakat (KOMAS), Persatuan Kesedaran Komuniti Selangor (EMPOWER), Suara Rakyat Malaysia (SUARAM), Women’s Aid Organisation (WAO), Writer’s Alliance for Media Independence (WAMI), Bar Council and others.
Most of the abovementioned NGOs are sponsored by the Jewish-funded NED and Open Society Institute (OSI), which is owned by the thieving Jewish money trader, George Soros.
In July 2005, NDI in conjunction with REFSA organised a national level election workshop for party leaders, which came as part of a series that underscored a determined and concerted effort to encourage election reformation. REFSA is among the secretariat in BERSIH.
“The following year, in 2006 NDI organised a workshop for BERSIH that focused on improving the action plan for every participant or political party within the organisation.
“In 2007, NDI and BERSIH held several series of workshops in neglected political areas of Sarawak and Sabah, aimed at reviving political aspirations,” reported the NDI website.
