Ibrahim Ali is doing Umno's dirty job
YOURSAY 'For those who suggest that the authorities take action against Ibrahim Ali, dream on. He is immune.'
Ibrahim Ali flayed for flogging May 13 spectre again
LittleGiant: What is the point of non-Malay BN leaders getting upset with Perkasa chief Ibrahim Ali? What's the use? They should instead be upset with Umno. Don't they all know that Umno fully supports what is said and done by Perkasa?
Non-Malay BN leaders should have the conviction and guts to ask Umno to take appropriate action against Perkasa for its racist stand and intimidating statements which are highly detrimental to the racial harmony of Malaysians.
Ibrahim Ali and his Perkasa leaders do not care for whatever anger shown and statements issued by MCA, MIC, Gerakan and other non-Malay BN component parties.
After all, Perkasa knows that it has the tacit approval of Umno leadership for all the nonsense it has to say about the Chinese, Indians and other non-Malays in this country.
Anonnona: Yes, the Chinese are having it so good in this country that more than a million of them have migrated overseas in search for a better future.
There are not many Chinese in Malaysia who have not lost a member of their family or friends due to migration. There are even some old couples living alone in Malaysia because all their children have gone for greener pastures overseas.
Don't all Malaysians like to have their children, relatives and friends around them as they grow old?
Mushiro: Ibrahim Ali should not be envious of the 'haram' business run by the non-Muslims - that is their right. And if the Chinese is controlling 40 percent of the economy, then this is a reasonable percentage.
Why is Ibrahim Ali picking on the Chinese when Najib is talking of 1Malaysia? What exactly is Ibrahim Ali's plans for the Chinese?
James1067: He made no mention about how we can improve the quality of life of all Malaysians but instead threatened the public so that he can help his friends to cover up their corrupted exploits.
His colleague Shahrizat Abdul Jalil who fear the NFC (National Feedlot Corporation) fiasco will unravel if the opposition wins and might have to face the law, and Ibrahim expects to sacrifice innocent lives just to protect the corrupted and selfish like her.
Hang Babeuf: "We, too, do not want that to happen," Ibrahim is quoted as saying.
Translation: "We do not want that to happen, but if you do not do as we want, when and as we want it, then these things will happen. We can promise you that. And even if we do not cause and start them, we will do nothing to prevent them from happening.
"We will happily let awful events unfold and take their own terrible course. So we will in the end have our way, get what we want, and without any great effort or direct intervention on our part.
"With that in mind, what do you intend to do to placate us, and make us happy and relaxed, before that awful course of events begins to unfold?"
This is simply blackmail. Polite blackmail, but blackmail none the less.
Longjaafar: For those who suggest that the authorities take action against Ibrahim Ali, dream on. He is immune.
Lamborghini: Ibrahim Ali is preaching the doctrine of ‘might is right'.
In multiracial Malaysia, this is dangerous, subversive and definitely anti-1Malaysia. He is issuing a veiled threat to non-Muslims and non-Malays and as a true Malaysian citizen, I find this kind of threat totally unacceptable.
To build a great nation that is peaceful, harmonious and united, we should preach and practice moderation and mutual respect, not might is right and one race is superior than other races.
Every Malaysian must be assured that we are treated equally and our rights respected.
Lim Chong Leong: Ibrahim's problem is even Umno does not want him. So he will continue to be BN friendly but remain a homeless independent. Let's see for how long though, because after GE13 he will be a nobody.
Vgeorgemy: Ibrahim Ali, who himself is not sure about retaining his own Pasir Mas seat, now wants BN to have two-thirds majority. What a joke.
The Script: I don't know how to explain to my two growing children, who embrace and love everything about our motherland, Malaysia, and who look forward to their days so happily and with innocent passion, when the truth is the people who ultimately decide on their future do not even like them sticking around.
Let's face it. Perkasa is but Umno's alter ego. Otherwise, they would have gladly revived the ISA even if it's just to throw him into the slammer for being a threat to national security.
But he's not in the slammer. He's out there gathering support from those aligned to him that the non-Malays are not welcomed in the very country in which they were born, raised, and shared a future with.
And the ruling government secretly smiles while Ibrahim Ali does the dirty work for them.
