Malaysia releases five militant suspects
CNA reported that Malaysia had freed five alleged members of the Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) militant group, saying they have been rehabilitated during years in detention without trial. These 5 are members of Jemaah Islamiyah who have been blamed for major attacks including the 2002 Bali bombings. However, Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said that the five were no longer considered a threat to national security.
I am sure that the world at large was shocked to read of the release of the 5 potential terrorists. As well they should be. But we Malaysians are not. Why? Can't you read? Hishammuddin Hussein already said ma. "......the 5 are no longer considered a threat to national security."
The operative word is "national". That could mean that since they are based here and treated here like 'rehabilitated' saudara-saudara (cousins/friends/buddies) they won't do anything to their own magnanimous Malaysian kawan-kawan what. What, who and where they might want to terrorise in future is no concern of ours. Right? And some more our Hishammuddin is such a nice fler.
"Their release today was to give them an opportunity to celebrate Aidilfitri with their respective families and has nothing to do with the by-election for the Bagan Pinang state seat," he said. Awwwwwwwwwww.........Now how can you not love this guy?
But as a Malaysian I am bewildered la. I mean if the 5 flers are suspected of being linked to an organisation that is suspected of having committed terrorist acts like bombings and all then investigate la and charge them in court and if they are found guilty of any crimes then throw the book at them la. But now, catch them, throw them inside Kamunting without charge (and we have no idea of what goes on in there, do we?) and after a while tell us, "Ah semuanya okay. They are rehabilitated already." Rehabilitated from what? And if Kamunting with the ISA are so blaardy good at rehabilitating how come they couldn't do the shit they wanted with Anwar and RPK?
And all this action manages to get us is a growing reputation that we might be a terrorist breeding ground and safe haven. Waffor? So we replace all the current tourists with visitors from terrorists hotspots ah? But the last time I checked KLCC, Mega Mall and the Pavilion are not having sales on designer missiles and trendy A-bombs. Yet. Something to think about I guess because I heard that makers of those things give HUGE commissions.
