Dr M blames Pak Lah for rising racism among Malays
By Wan Hamidi Hamid
"I believe racist sentiments among Malays and non-Malays are rising. If it flares up the stability of this country may be affected permanently. We may see political wrangling of the kind we see in several other countries. In the process the economy of this country would be destroyed," he said.
Dr Mahathir said that although Abdullah tried to placate everyone by splashing out funds and projects, no one believed him because they never materialised.
"The fact is that nobody believes him or trusts him. No one has been placated."
Dr Mahathir's solution?
"Right thinking people must make their rejection of Datuk Seri Abdullah's leadership heard. If we don't then whatever racial harmony that exists would be eroded and will destroy this beloved country.

We are observing empirically how certain leaders are fanning and inciting racial hatred. They are desperate to see that this nation of ours must be dragged into another racial clash. They will say anything and do anything to make sure that the Malays hate the Chinese and the Chinese feared the Malays.
Even our Armed Forces Chief General Abdul Aziz Zainal had expressed his worries and concern.
Prime Minister Pak Lah also admitted the same concern. "The racial situation in our country looks like it is showing signs of strain and increasing tensions among races," Pak Lah said.
Deputy police chief Ismail Omar also sounded a warning yesterday, saying that racially charged statements had triggered a dangerous rash of inflammatory messages on Internet blogs and SMS text messages.
"I am issuing a stern warning to all quarters to refrain from making statements on sensitive issues via the various media," Deputy IGP said.
It seems it is inevitable that we may have to go through this turmoil. Why are these conspirators aren't afraid of Allah's displeasure? This is the month of Ramadan.
The Prophet said: "If one does not give up speaking falsehood and acting by it, Allah does not require him to give up eating and drinking." (Bukhari)
Fasting is a means for performing real worship. Real worship means desisting from violating the law of Allah. The Prophet had directed the Muslims, while fasting, ought to do more good works and ardently desire to perform acts of kindness, compassion and sympathy. Instead some of them preferred to incite hatred and animosity.
"Vie with one another, hastening to forgiveness from your Lord, and towards a Paradise as wide as are the heavens and earth, prepared for the God-conscious who spend both in prosperity and in adversity." (Al Imran: 133)
"And the believers, the men and the women, are friends one for another; they enjoin the doing of right and forbid the doing of wrong, and they perform the Prayer, and they give the alms and they obey Allah and His Messenger. It is they upon whom Allah will have mercy (Al Tawbah: 71)
