COMMENT We live in an unprecedented time in the political life of Malaysia. The old saying ‘an enemy’s enemy is a friend’ has literally come to life before us. The news hit everyone on March 4 when former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad went head-on with our now globally infamous Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.
The timing of the Citizens’ Declaration, coming three days after the article by the Wall Street Journal ( WSJ ), seemed to be a strategically laid-out plan.
Like most of us, I sort of saw the clash of titans coming (there have been endless headlines about disagreements between the former and the latter), but what I didn’t expect was the line of supporters he had. The once undefeatable vociferous Dr M and his political nemeses had come together and united to oust their common enemy. From the library windows of Columbia University, I silently hoped that truth will prevail.
