Defending Malaysia. After Najib's rebuke, we've now got Foreign Minister Syed Hamid Albar speaking in Rome that Wisma Putra will summon Thierry Rommel over the EU envoy's NEP slur. Our ambassador to Brussels Kamal Yan Yahya will meet EU officials to convey Malaysia's stance and after that, Syed Hamid said, Malaysia will then study the possibility of sending a protest note [here].
In KL, Hishamuddin Hussein, the Education Minister, called Rommel arrogant and excessive. He said Rommel overstepped his authority and a protest note should be sent to the EU [here].
The newspapers will now write their columns and editorials lambasting Rommel. Or will they wait for the PM to say something first? Will the MCA and Gerakan leaders also wait?
Pasquale does not defend the NEP in his hard-hitting against foreigners who have no respect for Malaysians and Malaysia's sovereignty. He is equally unsympathetic towards Malaysians who do not stand up to recent insults. He has a picture of Rommel not in Gestapo uniform. Read his posting Malaysia is a coward of the county.
