"The real issue is not between Muslims and non-Muslims but between moderates and extremists in all religions ..." - Anifah Aman, Malaysian Foreign Minister, in promoting the Global Movement of Moderates at the United Nations last year. Isn't the same message - and movement - even more relevant today?
It's a shame that the youth wings of Umno and Pas won't be walking together for the same Muslim "innocence" cause after the Friday prayers tomorrow. They had wanted to but could not agree on a common approach. The Islamic party's youth wing wants a massive protest outside the US Embassy. They want to march by the thousands from KLCC to Jalan Tun Razak, where the US Embassy is. The Umno youths think this could be messy. They have seen enough violent outcomes in other Muslim cities.
