Do these DAP people know what they are doing? Surely they cannot be that stupid. Or are they not stupid but actually very clever? And if they are not stupid but actually very clever then what game are they trying to play? I am sure the voters from Sabah and Sarawak would like the answer to that question.
Anwar Ibrahim has announced that Pakatan Rakyat 2.0 is soon going to be formed and PAS is going to be excluded from this new coalition that will replace the old coalition of PKR, PAS and DAP a.k.a. Pakatan Rakyat.
In this new coalition will be PKR, DAP, GHB (Gerakan Harapan Baru), Bersih, Abim and Ikram.
GHB is the latest PAS breakaway party just like Hamim and Berjasa once were. Hamim was formed in 1983 and Berjasa in 1977. Both were formed after the gulungan kecewa (frustrated group) in PAS left after failing to grab power, just like the latest gulungan kecewa that formed GHB.
Will GHB go the way of Hamim and Berjasa, two PAS breakaway parties that most Malaysians have never even heard of, especially those who became political only in 2007 or 2008?
One interesting point to note is that DAP divorced from PAS because PAS is said to be an extremist party. Yet DAP goes to bed with Abim and Ikram that have links to the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran. This is like rejecting the Taliban while going to bed with Boko Haram.
The only difference between the Taliban and Boko Haram is that one kills using guns and the other kills using swords. But they still kill nevertheless. So DAP rejects ‘extremist’ PAS and goes to bed with allies of the Muslim Brotherhood and friends of Iran. Even radical Muslims in the Middle East find the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran too frightening for their liking.
DAP is either trying to bullshit Malaysians or they are absolutely ignorant of Islamic politics. Either way that does not help DAP’s image and reputation.
The GHB faction fielded ulama’ Ahmad Awang against ulama’ Abdul Hadi Awang while Mat Sabu went for number two. Both Ahmad Awang and Mat Sabu lost. However, Mat Sabu is the President of GHB and not Ahmad Awang. Why is that?
The answer is simple. DAP cannot accept an ulama’ as the new head of GHB so they had to appoint secularist/liberal Mat Sabu instead. With Mat Sabu as GHB’s new head, the party would not be seen as extremist, compared to if ulama’ Ahmad Awang is its head.
But Mat Sabu is more radical than Ahmad Awang even though they pretend it is the other way around. Mat Sabu is Shia and has links with Iran. How more radical can you get than that?
