The End of Malaysia
Oouch! Ini tangan Melayu! Saya Malaiyoooo!
Umno protects the Malays from Islam: Give them more Islam.
Asri Zainal Abidin (above) was right about the political nature of Malaysia: it is a Westphalian state.
But Asri didn’t expand on that notion: Westphalian sovereignty is a state, a country, answerable to only itself, independent of outsiders, Allah included, and not beholden to any Islamic, political or religious doctrine, given by Allah or not.
This Westphalian quality is the bedrock principle of Malaysia’s independence. Take that away, the Malay ceases to be Malay by ceasing to be the padi and coconut farmer and riverine, kampung dweller that originally defined the Malay. The Malay becomes instead the mirror image of a camel herder and desert tribal lunatic, seconded into an Arab identity, and losing altogether his own. Malaysia loses that fundamental part of its character that first made it up.

RU355 and Hudud are
neither Malay nor Malaysian Laws
Before Mahathir Mohamad, the qualifications of being Malay were never pivoted on a piece of paper. The Malay was a loose term and in some ways open-ended. Since, though, Mahathir declared Malaysia an Islamic state, the inverse of the process to bring in Islam into the Malay consciousness and existential being became unstoppable, aided by that piece of paper called the Constitution.
Because the Malay is today so narrowly defined, primarily and singularly by Islam, Najib Razak has little problem in sequestering Hadi Awang’s parliamentary bill RU355 on behalf of Malays, of Umno and the Barisan Nasional. Doing that, Najib hammers in the last nail to entomb then to exterminate the surviving quality of the Malay — his tropical existence — and forever made irreversible that which had originally defined the Malay.
The two remaining legs of the Malays existence, custom and language, would have to be subverted to Islam. Then they fade, disappear and rendered obsolete. In their places would be the Arab language and Arab customary laws.
The Malay ceases to exist altogether. Malaysia becomes Melayustan.
It would be the price Najib pays to stay out of jail, so concluding the process, started by Mahathir and Anwar Ibrahim, in exterminating the Malay identity and thereby kill the fundamental idea into what had constituted Malaysia. That is, its Westphalian political quality which, in turn, rests on its multi-ethnic and multi-cultural foundations.
Doing that, Umno and PAS, and Hadi and Najib, commit the ultimate treason: the ending of Malaysia as it was conceived.
Standing between this final end and Najib’s self-serving politics are the Chinese (including the populations which had moderated politics in Sarawak and Sabah). Should we, the Chinese, let the Malays kill themselves?
But if we do then Malay self-extermination will be followed by Malaysia’s destruction; it, in turn, to be replaced by a sort of Pakistan — and we know what sort of lunatic country that is.
1MDB will not kill Malaysia; at worse the Malays will eat cow grass and that’s halal anyway. So, the ‘Save Malaysia’ campaign is grossly misdirected and gets only little traction because the 50 billion ringgit theft does not fracture the structures of statehood. (True, the police, Bank Negara, and the AG Chambers were compromised to protect Najib, but such institutions were not dismantled; they are still there.)
RU355 will instead do more lasting, fundamental and irreversible damage to the structures of the national foundations.
Should other Barisan components, including Sarawak, quit their alliances with Umno then Najib (along with Hadi) will have complete reign to insert then to hasten full Syaria laws into Malay life, that is, in the extermination of the Malay identity. Sarawak, if it sticks to its guts, will be further repelled from staying in the Federation. With Umno and PAS on one side of Parliament’s aisle, the rest of Malaysia, or what’s left of it, on the other side, the end of Malaysia is complete.
This has been the dream of racist bigots and Islamo fascists. Other than Hadi and Najib, it has been talked about by Umno’s motherfucker mouthpieces such as Helen Aku Cina Ang, Kadir Jasin, Ismail Sabri, and the Pahang mufti. These morons: Do they know the consequences of what they had wished for?
Perhaps the Chinese should grant them their wish: Support RU355.
The MCA is right with its decision. Let Umno self-immolate because, with the Malay dead, United Malays National Organization would have to undergo its own ‘transformation‘, changing its name included. Najib, over to you….
If Mahathir truly wants to Save Malaysia, and if Lim Kit Siang also wishes to do likewise, they should jointly and openly campaign against the Bill. But they dare not.
That being so, why the hell should the Chinese give a shit for Saving Malaysia? It ain’t our agama, bangsa dan negara.
