Malaysiakini - Anwar condemns anti-Muhammad film
It's lamentable the 'freedom of expression' enjoyed by westerners has been exploited to vilify and demon-ize Islam and all Muslims. In Australia, on a daily basis I receive hate emails abusing and demon-izing Muslims with sheer utter fabrications - example, Muslims are pushing for Aussie public schools to ban pork in their canteen, Muslims are demanding that Australia's national anthem be sung in Arabic, etc.
When I explained to those who sent the hate emails to me that it's fabrications, they abused me in turn for being a Muslim lover.
The fabrications are so outrageously bullshitty that no clear minded reader would have believed them but unfortunately, they appeal very much to those with hatred in their hearts and vengeance on their minds.
I am aware many of them (Malaysian expatriates) hate Muslims like some Australian bigots for no other reason than they hate Malays. And they hate Malays because they have incorrectly attributed their disadvantages in Malaysia to the so-called ketuanan Melayu or practice of Malay supremacy and the apartheid NEP by the authorities.
When I tried (again) to explain that many Malays suffer (still do) the same advantages, in fact some more than Chinese, and that the ketuanan Melayu and associated NEP freebies are actually ketuanan UMNO and mainly UMNO NEP freebies, they pordah me.
Some (most sadly) even supported and cheered the Israeli military in their vicious war crimes during Operation Cast Lead and in the high sea murder of some Turks on the MV Mavi Marmara by Israeli commandos.
When I explained (alas, again futilely) that if they wanted to equate Malaysian 'nons' to the situation in Palestine, the 'nons' would be like the Palestinians while the Israelis would be the equivalent of Malaysia's UMNO apparatus.
But alas, they have already made up their narrow minds that UMNO = all Malays = all Muslims.
Talking about films, what about the lies about Lim Kit Siang propagated by Tanda Putera? For more of Shuhaimi Baba's bullsh*t, read The Malaysian Insider's May 13 witness defends Kit Siang in flagpole incident.
I have no doubt there are equivalent 'narrow minds' who want to believe Lim Kit Siang did pee on the flag post in the Selangor MB's residence.
I think I like to pee on Suhaimi Baba's evil film.
