On PSM: Police stirred up protesters
Mahendran Balakrishnan: I was one of the people who went to the Gabungan Anti-Perang vigil. It was a shock to all of us that the police acted against humanitarian concerns worldwide and cracked down on this anti-war group.
It clearly shows the covert operation that the government of the day is doing in support of the Zionist state. What really shocked me was the idiotic remark by the never-impressive Syed Hamid Albar.
‘These people were not demonstrating on the issue of the Palestinians. They were actually demonstrating on the issue of Sri Lanka. The placards showed they were in support of Sri Lanka. Let us not mix the issues.'
Is he saying that the police will allow anti-Israel protests but will crack down if they are about Sri Lanka's civil war? The latter a decades-old war that has claimed more than 30,000 lives?
I can't avoid drawing the conclusion that Syed Hamid actually condones the killing of Tamil Hindus while at the same time paying lip service, pretending to be against the killing of innocent lives.
Its sad that the BN can't even differentiate between politics and humanitarian concerns over such a global issue. Syed Hamid owes Tamils around the world an apology.
Bsvanan: What did Syed Hamid mean when he said ‘Let us not mix the issues?' That we can only question Israel for killing the Palestinians but not Sri Lanka for their Tamils?
He thinks only Palestinians have the right to live and not the Tamils?
Syed Hamid, how is your action is different from Israel then? Anwar is right. BN is Israel v2.0.
Welcome to Malaysia, where only issues pertaining to Muslims and Malays are a big concern. Others can die.
Sitha: What is this Syed Hamid Albar is talking about: ‘Let us not mix the issues'?
Who cares where, man, the point is innocent people are dying. Does it matter where they die? Or what race they are? ?
Are we really sincere in what we feel for the Palestinians? If yes, then we should feel the same for the Sri Lankans or anyone else for that matter.
Is the government really sincere? Arresting the 21 who gathered for anti-war vigil clearly shows that the government is not.
