Stop the craps, please!

Two issues that draw my attention. Its all about MCA and Gerakan 'comeback' to PM Najib's Cabinet.

First, some Chinese leaders were not satisfied that their respective parties were not given 'senior positions' in the Cabinet, as announced by Najib on Wednesday.

Why complaint when they were the ones who decided to stay away from the Federal administration after the 13th general election? Be positive la, just get on with our work and proof that we can deliver better.

Its good to be back after a 'lull' and its time to put all the bad episodes behind, strategise a workable formula to help BN keeps Putrajaya in the next national poll and convince the Chinese that BN is the only political pact to trust and vote for.
Chinese community leaders welcomed the return of MCA and Gerakan to the Cabinet but are disappointed that they were not given more significant portfolios such as the posts of international trade and industry minister and housing and local government minister.
They are also disappointed that MCA was not allocated the post of deputy education minister, which the party traditionally held, the Chinese press reported today.
They had hoped that MCA would also be given the posts of housing and local government minister, and health minister.
On the appointments of MCA deputy chief Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong and Gerakan president Datuk Mah Siew Keong as ministers in the Prime Minister's Department, the Chinese leaders wanted to see them given specific functions instead of being ministers without portfolios.
Hua Zong president Tan Sri Pheng Yin Huah noted the lack of Chinese representatives in the Education, Home, Agriculture and Agro-based Industry, as well as Urban Well-being, Housing and Local Government Ministries.
He was, however, happy MCA vice-chief Datuk Lee Chee Liang was made deputy international trade and industry minister.
Secondly and finally, what prompted Isma (Ikatan Muslimin Malaysia) to boast about the Malays' generosity in re-accepting MCA and Gerakan into the Cabinet? What's the motive and intention?

BN (in fact from the day Parti Perikatan was founded by Umno, MCA, MIC and others during the early 60s) has never ditched any of its component from the Cabinet lineup. The spirit of cooperation reflects the strong bonding among the three major race in Malaysia, and that has been keeping the country free from major racial crisis, except for 1969.

What else do we want? A 100 per cent Malay cabinet? Or for Umno, MCA, MIC and others go dutch in the next general election?

Stop pitting the Malays and Chinese into unnecessary political confrontation, unless we really want to see a civil war in the country!
The appointment of MCA and Gerakan leaders into the cabinet shows the generosity of the country's Malay leadership, said Ikatan Muslimin Malaysia (Isma) president Abdullah Zaik Abdul Rahman.
"Even when MCA and Gerakan suffered heavy losses in the last general election, they were still given cabinet positions," he added.
The question now for the Muslim community, he added, is to what extent would MCA and Gerakan show their gratitude.
"Will MCA and Gerakan consider this generosity, or will they take this opportunity to join hands with DAP and other non-Muslims to question Islam as well as the rights of Malays and bumiputera?" he asked in a statement.
Abdullah said this is a valid question because it appears that MCA and Gerakan are on the same page with DAP in opposing hudud and questioning Malaysia's status as an Islamic state.
If there's anything about the Chinese that you don't like, just don't get any closer to them. Malaysia is not another Zimbabwe!
