MalaysianInsider headline should have read...When Anwar desperately wanted to meet Najib!
You see Najib Tun Razak is a well brought up gentleman; he was taught many good values along the way and one is to treat your "enemy" as "friend". "The best way to disarm your adversary is to not show any hostile expression, and just be nice," he once said.
Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim had expressed his desperate intention to see Najib and he got his wish when the prime minister granted that meeting.
Of course Najib was also curious to know the intention of the meeting and that was why he agreed to meet this forked-tongued leader of the opposition!
Forked-tongue!? Yes, forked-tongue!
Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim went to see the Prime Minister to urge him to try to drop his sodomy case, to which Najib said he could not interfere with the law. Read more here....
I do not know where MalaysianInsider got his source from, but I do not expect this anti-government portal to be sympathetic even with its headline.
I can also quote "government sources", but the fact is the meeting was between the two and possibly two other trusted witnesses that will keep a secret.
This man Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim should not have been trusted in the first place for any meeting, for he is known to twist and turn anything to and for his own advantage!
No it was not an expression of weakness on Njaib's part to agree to meet the leader of the opposition, for this sixth prime minister of Malaysia, magnanimity is one his virtues, weakness is not one of them. If needs be he is also capable of carrying a big stick to swat a "fly"!
It is up to you to decide which to believe..the anti-government, anti-Malay, anti-Umno, anti-BN Malaysian Insider or just a plain simple and plain expression by Barkingmagpie!!
To recap: Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim had one thing in mind when he was granted a meeting with Prime Minister Dato' Sri Najib Tun Razak, and that is to plead to the prime minister to drop his sodomy case. The PM said no can do for that would amount to interfering with the law! But of course Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim twisted the whole episode, expected of him!
