WASHINGTON: Seorang pendakwah terkenal Amerika, Syeikh Anwar al-Awlaki mengutuk keras serangan brutal yang dilancarkan tentera Israel ke Genting Gaza yang mengakibatkan ramai orang awam yang tidak berdosa menjadi korban serangan itu, ia bukan serangan baru, malah sudah berkali-kali rejim Yahudi melakukannya tanpa menghiraukan nyawa manusia, terutama golongan kanak-kanak.
Inspite and despite the so-called great debate just concluded between Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and MCA president Chua Soi Lek, and away from it, the latter continues with his traditional themes to scare the Chinese into submission: money and hudud, among other things.
The only way that the Chinese will buy Chua’s talk is if they had suddenly undergone metamorphosis and regressed sufficiently, intelligence-wise, on the evolutionary scale to prevent them from seeing through the MCA leader’s self-serving double-talk.
Not to hit below the belt, but there’s no guarantee at all that Chua can change his spots, and suddenly be the benchmark for being faithful and loyal to the Chinese community. After all, he could humiliate his own wife in public with an adultery case when a more caring and responsible man would have opted to quit to spare his partner of decades further pain for what is after his own sin and error.
