The heat is on

As the Ahmad Ismail controversy continues to boil, the dividing line becomes clearer and partisan politics is gaining ground. The pro Ahmad Ismail camp is digging in as the other side pushes the govt to take action against him. The frightening picture of May 13 is flashing across many people's mind. Could this be the excuse to thwart Anwar's effort to become the next PM? The Armed Forces Chief, Abdul Aziz Zainal has spoken and calling the Malaysian govt to take stern actions against those stoking racial sentiments. The Police Chief, Ismail Omar, said his men are ready to keep things under control. When the two uniform chiefs are showing concern, things are looking dangerous. Some opportunists may seize this as an opportunity to start a fire. Will Malaysia burn again?

You never underestimate the Malay ultras. They are capable of doing anything to preserve their 'ketuaan melayu' status.

The other interesting development is Mahathir rejoining UMNO. He is quite desperate to make sure Anwar doesn't make it to the PM post. It will be a difficult existence for him henceforth if Anwar is in control of the government. They will be digging out all the dirt to get him for sure.

Any politician who plays the race card is always treading on dangerous waters.

Everyone is better off without without violent racial clashes and conflicts.

Given the immense current risks, it becomes apparent that our boys did have good foresights to not get involved in the IDR project at all. How intuitive!

Malaysia is a Islamic nation and must live up to Islamic teaching of Quran and P(SAW) sunnah. Playing American style politics based on religion, race and exposing of dirts on opponents is definitely playing with fire.

it is good that abdullah is doing the correct thing and suspended ahmad ismail for 3 years.

this kind of decisions will not have happened if not of the last GE and permatang pauh.

someone may even kiss the kris again in the pre election days.

All this goes to show racial politics is far from over in spite of what happened in GE 12. Those who believe Anwar will change this are building sandcastles in the air. It is not easy to eradicate 51 years of mistrust and ill-feelings.

Anwar is still a Malay and supported largely by Malays. How much can he do? Already some Malays are calling him a 'Judas'
