"Apalah identiti kamu sbg orang Melayu kalau kamu tak tahu adat istiadat dan asal usulnya kamu sebagai orang Melayu?Kamu boleh kata "saya Melayu progresif" ... kamu boleh kata "saya ulama" ... kamu kata kamu Melayu socialis ... kamu boleh kata kamu Melayu kominis ... Tapi jangan lupa sejarah kamu. Kamu hilang adat istiadat, kamu hilang asal usual, maka harus kamu lucutkan gelaran kamu orang Melayu, lucutkan keistimewaan Melayu." A quote by Felicia Ling, a refreshing Malaysian-Chinese lawyer. Read more here...
I am sure a lot of Malay politicians from Umno would have loved to say what Felicia said about Melayu. But for being a political coward and for fear of being branded a Malay racist they just skirted around the issue.
The fact of the matter is chauvinist Malaysian-Chinese and arrogant half baked bleeding heart liberal Melayu from PKR and their leader, a first half-a-generation Melayu of Malabari origin like Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim (BABI), they have no respect for the Malay system or custom.
I still remember when BABI refused to bow down to the late Sultan of Perak Azlan Shah on stage.
He even said when he was the short-lived DPM that he will turned Malaysia a republic, and that he will not allow more "kuil Hindu" to be erected, and that "China kita boleh control".
Overheard at the corridor of the old PMO in KL: "Ooi Samy hang nak mintak kuil ke lagi, berapa banyak kuil ke..ng mau lagi". Samy Vellu just sniggered and gave a disdained smile.
Now it takes a non-Malay to remind the stupid Malays to get out of their slumber and to use their brains full this time.
I have no doubts in my mind that, like Felicia, there are countless non-Malays who love and will die for this country.
At the same time there are also many Malays and their leaders who will sell their soul to the D(evil)AP for lust, temptation and easy money.
