The book were intended for Malay. I believe majority of Malays don't see what he saw. for the love of his race and this country, he wrote to wake up his fellow towering Malaysians.

If he is PM of our country, this country would be a better place to live(judging on surface, as I don't know much about him).

He explained why he had to resign, and the reason was very simple. and you would agreed, that's no way he can stay on.

The elderly Chinese descendants have been working hard in preserving identify, now to hear it from a Malay in this country is refreshing. First heard about important of identity from a politician - Lee Kuan Yew, then read about it in Barack Obama's book. Many peoples failed to understand why it is important, it is important for individual, but it can be a problem for government who prefer weak citizens. So, it is possible that a government might not want their 'strong' citizens to preserve identity so that they can not be easily challenged.

This book is also worth reading for the like of Datuk Prof Khoo who preferred to blame minority for race problems in this country - the book would serve as an eye-opener.

Generally, he sounded very rational in his book.

You'd be very suprised to know that there are a heck lot more rational Malay people here - all over the country. People who are proud to be Malaysian first, hard working, law abiding citizens that only want the best for theirs and our country... same people that I work with and am proud to know and call friends too.

Unfortunately - we also have UMNO, run by warlords and warmongers... hoodwinking everybody into submission and brainwashing everybody with their 'hidden' agendas... Simply put - If UMNO goes out of business (lose support), these leeches will die... and no way these fellas would wanna give up their current lifestyles and ill gotten bank accounts...

And in order to keep what they have - they would be willing to sacrifice anything and everything (including you and me and a dog named Boo)... :rolleyes: The ironic part is - there are some in UMNO that are also good people, just that they cannot do anything to change things. If they try - they get WHACKed and hung out to DRY.... just like Zaid. :(

In my travels, I noticed that most people are pleasant and friendly. All they want in life is peace to do their stuff. Likewise, the Malays here are friendly and helpful. Once, my dirt bike jammed on the highway due to lack of T-oil, it was a Malay gentleman who stopped and loaned me some oil. I am sure, like him, many of his people are just as helpful and peace loving.

It is provocateurs like politicians who flame and stir hatred for their own political ambition. The government here stays in power based on certain platforms. Without these platforms, they are dead in the water, so to say. So it is to their advantage to maintain their platforms for survival. Any deadly consequences that may arise are collateral damages. My hope is that the government of the day will change their platforms to something that is not racial, religious or harmful. Look at the Democrats and Republicans in USA. Their platforms are not based on race or religion. It is based on how they want to impose fiscal policies, foreign policies, education, taxes, etc, etc. These are the platforms that rightly should be the order of the day in Malaysia. Instead, we are still at the stone-age fighting over race and religion.

But then again universal acknowledgement does not necc translate into localised acceptance...in bolehland? semua cakap Xserupa bikin lah! :rolleyes:
