KUALA LUMPUR, June 24 — PAS President Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang has urged all quarters to reject foreign powers from meddling in the nation’s affairs, as it is forbidden by Islam.
“The Quran forbids Muslims from trusting other quarters in solving their internal problems.
“Whether right or wrong, a problem must be resolved internally with patience.”
Pro UMNO Pak Hadi was probably criticising the US Department of Justice for announcing its latest civil filing that sought to seize RM2.31 billion in assets obtained by funds allegedly stolen from 1MDB.
1MDB responded saying that the allegations were not backed with proof.
With respect to Pak Hadi's advice, there is an old British saying, to wit, 'Tell that to the marines'. It means 'what a shitload of crap'.
The saying was first used by author John Davis in 1804, with that sentence coming from his book 'The Post Captain', namely, "You may tell that to the marines ... may I be d----d if the sailors will believe it."
Well I like to update it to modern times and ask Pak Hadi to 'Tell that to the Saudis', his Sunni mateys, who are now meddling with a foreign country's affairs, namely those of Qatar.
The Saudis is attempting to blackmail the Gulf peninsula-state into closing down al Jazeera, wakakaka.
