FMT - War of words in Dewan Rakyat over ‘we welcome war’ remarks (extracts)
Minister of "War"?
KUALA LUMPUR: The Dewan Rakyat descended into chaos today with some MPs saying they were ready for “war” and others protesting this, resulting in the speaker having to step in to put off the flame.
It started when Opposition leader Ismail Sabri Yaakob touched on DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng’s “declaration of war” statement over the Umno-PAS formal alliance. Suddenly, someone shouted “we welcome war if they want war”.
After much confusion as to who had cried for war, Takiyuddin Hassan (PAS-Kota Bharu) repeated it. This time, several other MPs echoed in affirmation. [...]
Last Wednesday, Lim issued a statement in Mandarin urging MCA to immediately leave Barisan Nasional because Umno and PAS were now “declaring war” on non-Muslims.
He issued a correction several hours later, which replaced the phrase “declaring war” with”targeting”.
Ismail Sabri (BN-Bera) was questioning if Lim’s statement was meant to provoke non-Malays to declare war on Malays.
“If non-Malays act on this and declare war on Malays, for sure an untoward incident can happen, such as the May 13 tragedy,” he said.
Bapak 'Lowyat 2'
the words should apply as well to Lim GE
Most people including Pakatan and DAP people know Lim Guan Eng isn't the sharpest knife in the kitchen, wakakaka. But in spite of his 'deficiency' he has a habit of saying stuff that annoyed people and presumably will continue to annoy people.
Because of the two Malay parties political "marriage", saying that Umno and PAS were now “declaring war” on non-Muslims is insensitive and, given our racial divide, asking for trouble.
Sure as hell is hot, UMNO and PAS, being Malays and presumably anak2 jantan plus the opportunism of scoring on the ethnic report card, the response in parliament was to be expected, thanks Guan Eng.
It provided Ismail Sabri the occasion to raise the threat of 'May 13', a dark chapter in Malaysian history when many Malaysian, mainly Chinese perished tragically in a racial civil riot.
We also know Bapak 'Lowyat 2' has been an a$$h*l# but we shouldn't overlook the fact that Guan Eng, due to his loose mouth, tempered by arrogance and a moronic belief he's always clever, righteous and the son of Lim Kit Siang, started it first with his warlike "declaring war" provocation.
