"The leadership is busy collecting wealth. While Israel is punishing the Palestinian people for choosing Hamas, it is no different from Umno punishing Malaysians for choosing the Pakatan Rakyat." - Anwar IbrahimAmir Muhammad is right: Malaysian politicians say the darndest thing.
This one [read here for the full article] by DSAI is just so Umno-ish. But then Anwar is a product of Umno. He was with Umno when the party was at its best and he was also there when Umno was at its worst. Anwar had a hand in making Umno what it is today. Remember the Wawasan Team? He was in the same bed with the likes of Muhammad Muhammad Taib and Rahim Thamby Chik! Were they not "busy collecting wealth?" back then? Wasn't Anwar's Umno punishing the people of Kelantan for electing PAS back then, which is why the state is still one of the poorest in the country till today?
I don't care if our politicians give low blows or if they share the same bed, but I wish they'd be more sensitive and sensible at all times. If we aren't helping the Palestinians then at least don't trivialize Israeli's crimes against humanity by comparing them with Umno or, for that matter, with PKR, DAP, PAS, All-Blogs, Barisan Rakyat bloggers, etc.
Btw, reading the pro-Pakatan blogs yesterday one can easily see that they are very organized. They are setting the agenda in Kuala Terengganu with blog postings and online news coverage that are coordinated in terms of timing and theme. Yesterday, for example, they focused on the Chinese voters. The Chinese in the constituency make up only 11 per cent of the voters, but Lim Kit Siang hails them as the "kingmakers" who will decide who wins the Jan 17 by-election. Indeed, they could be!
Picture above is of the PAS candidate Wahid Endut rubbing shoulders and locking limbs with a couple of kingmakers, according to a pro-Pakatan blogger.
On Gaza, this morning blogger Mafiaso mailed me this logo and invites all to place it on their blogs as a sign of support for the move to boycott US goods over Washington's support of Israeli's atrocities against the Palestinians.
