The Isil Threat To Bolehland: Are We Up To The Challenge?

The Isil threat is no laughing matter by any measure, but Bolehlanders can't help having a dig at the Pm who was so eager beaver in lauding the terrorist group when they first burst upon world consciousness.

That showed how unthinking Najib often shows himself to be.

Now the Pm has to eat his words and has vowed to fight the Isil threat.

The trouble is that Bolehlanders have completely lost faith in him.

The Pm has promised so many things but the country has yet to see anything positive coming to fruition, except all the scandals surrounding 1MDB and all the inexplicable amounts of money found in his personal bank accounts.

Bolehlanders have seen too many flip-flops to his policy statements to care about what he says anymore.

Or to take them seriously.

Are our security forces and intelligence up to the task of containing the Isil threat to the country?

We have been quite laissez-faire, honestly, believing that we are safe because Bolehland is an Islamic country and far away from the center of Isil grip in the Middle East and no reason why we should be at risk.

But Isil and their ilk don't really care a hoot about your brand of faith. They only care for their ideology, even though they call it Islamic, and have shown that they won't hesitate to slash your throat for it.

If the Najib regime is serious about fighting the Isil threat, they have to first stop playing politics with race and religion.

Get serious about the growing racial and religious extremism in the country and put a stop to all the attempts at demonising others.

Maybe they should start with telling their own ustazs and muftis to tune  tone down on their growing intolerant interpretations and pronouncements.

If not, that will only lead to more radicalisation and embolden those waiting to jump into the bandwagon and open the way to Isil infiltration.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
