“Why is Saifuddin not protesting why the super religious countries of West Asia, Africa and Asia have not opened their doors to their brethren from these countries?
And why does each of these brethren also not wanting to go to their next door super religious neighbors but only to the West which is considered as the “great Satan?”
US BAN – MALAYSIAN OPPOSITION POLITICIANS TOLD MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!
Politicians across the globe are a strange lot!
They are also super busy bodies!
Instead of addressing issues that matters on home soil they always prefer to go AWOL and address issues that are the sacred concerns of independent sovereign countries!
This is why I always say most times, the best brains avoid politics as those are for idiots and self-servers?
So I cannot but ask why a certain strand of Malaysian politicians are over reacting to what is happening in the United States?
Yes, why are they reacting to US President Donald Trump’s travel ban on Muslim refugees and immigrants!
First this interim ban does not involve Muslims across the board or Malaysia!
It is true that Trump’s executive order will keep refugees from entering the country for 120 days and immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim nations out for three months.
The countries affected are Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia.
This is not a surprise if you have been following Trump’s campaign promises to which voters supported resulting in his victory!
However, Trump went further last Sunday, to clarify that the order was not a ban against Muslims but a move that would keep the United States safe from terrorists.
What Malaysians must be careful is do not carried away and indulging in issues that do not concern them basically interfering in the domestic affairs of another sovereign nation!
The right wing swing is taking place across Europe and the chances are great that this narrative will be also be coming out of the rest of Europe?
As for the rally, this can infuriate the present Washington administration as it according to international laws could be construed as meddling in the affairs of the United States.
More importantly, President Trump’s executive order, signed last Friday, had initially invited criticisms and protests but since then the issue has been clarified and only those who have personal, private, fascist, terror supportive views are continuing to flag the issue!
There are far important issues in Malaysia from the increase of pump prices, the shrinking ringgit, escalation of costs of living and services and the bloated under worked civil service to cite just a few!
Saifuddin had also gone on record to state that the said rally should be supported by all Malaysians since it involved the issue of religion and human rights.
Since when have politicians been consistent on such issues?
Why is Saifuddin not protesting why the super religious countries of West Asia, Africa and Asia have not opened their doors to their brethren from these countries?
And why does each of these brethren also not wanting to go to their next door super religious neighbors but only to the West which was considered as the “great Satan?”
Politicians have always been super hypocrites, tunnel visioned, cherry picking and addressing issues that give them a political boost and not addressing without fear or favor all issues that are coming to the table?
So my advice to dear friend, Pakatan Harapan secretariat chief Saifuddin Abdullah who had called for a protest in front of the United States embassy in Kuala Lumpur next Friday, please call it off.
