The J-Star headline crafted by the evangelista editors yesterday said, ‘Senseless jihad puts Malaysia as global violence hub, says Home Ministry officer’ (see below).
The Nest of Evangelistas seems quite gleeful to be able to report that “the international community sees Malaysia as a hub and exporter of Islamic militants”.
You can interpret the MCA paper’s approach to this particular story of “Islamic militants” (The J-Star‘s word) in the context of how the meek and mild opposition supporters love to declare that “there are no Christian chauvinists and extremists in Malaysia but there are many Islamic chauvinists and extremists”.

Wong Chun Wai’s byline
The collection of special reports on Malaysia’s homegrown Malay militants in yesterday’s J-Star was attributed to the paper’s CEO Wong Chun Wai as the lead byline. See article below — ”They are militants – and flaunting it’.
Not only are the militants “flaunting” their involvement in jihad but the EvangeliSTAR is similarly flaunting the purported Christian meekness and mildness, in contrast to the Muslim “violence” and militancy.
The J-Star took pains to point out that the Malaysians fighting in Syria are “radical” Muslims. The entire English media machinery in the country has been painting the Malays as belonging to the side that harbours “extremists” and “religious bigots”.
In the fight over the Allah word, the Christian side is portrayed to the world as the small minority that is being persecuted and oppressed by the Muslim majority.
A blog reader of mine MCA.8481 poses a thought provoking question @ 2014/06/28 at 8:13 pm:
“‘Peace lovers’ are sleeping together in the same bed with the haters known for amanat hj hadi n doa2 pecah perut. These indoctrinations nurtured the likes of c.n. Al afghanis, ISIS malays martyr wannabes.
“Suppose those malays isis fighters returned home with the guns and all, will they be kind to the ‘peace lovers’?”
Here is a related interesting development in the current Christian vs Muslim propaganda war.
FMT‘s article today taking the government to task reports in its first paragraph:
“The DAP, MCA and Gerakan have condemned the cow-head incident involving lawyer and DAP assemblyman RSN Rayer, and have called on Putrajaya to act against those using violence to intimidate others who disagreed with them.”
Note that the three parties – DAP, MCA and Gerakan – have closed ranks and are speaking in one voice on this topic as they had previously also done on the hudud, secular state, child custody battle, Herald and ‘Allah’ Bible issues.
In its op-ed ‘Putrajaya can’t ignore cow-head incident‘ (above), FMT quotes Lim Guan Eng as referring to the acts against Sri Delima Adun RSN Rayer to be “barbaric and uncivilised”, “appalling and abominable” and which “threaten the peace and harmony”.
The white vs black, peace vs harmony narrative thread by the DAP is the one in control of public perception.
To go back to the puzzlement of MCA.8481 with regard to how the DAP “peace lovers” can sleep together with PAS, something written by Mujahid Yusof Rawa recently is pertinent to consider.
Christians portray themselves as victims of hate crime
Mujahid is the PAS unity bureau chairman as well as the force behind the National Unity Consultative Council’s National Harmony bills. The Racial and Religious Hate Crimes Bill criminalizes incitement on the basis of racial and religious hatred.
What do we know about these anti-hate crime bills? You can read what Saifuddin Abdullah – a key player in their drafting – has to say: ‘Harmony Bills a new, democratic way to lawmaking?‘ (fz.com, 26 June 2014).
Aside from being co-author with Mujahid on their jointly written ‘Unity’ book, Saifuddin is also the CEO of the Global Movement of Moderates. Sitting in the GMM board of trustees is Wong Chun Wai.
The founder and patron of the Global Movement of Moderates is Najib Razak.
Najib appointed well-known evangelista Wong Chun Wai as a trustee in his well-endowed GMM pet project. In other words, the PM provides lavish funding to a “think tank” headed by Saifuddin and presided over by Chun Wai as its trustee.
You can say that Najib has entrusted his “moderate” agenda to a Malay liberal and a Christian evangelista.
What are the NUCC bills?
The Sun Daily columnist KK Tan writes in his article two days ago, ‘Crying need for race relations laws‘:
“Based on my understanding of the proposed bills, they are meant to protect the potential victims (minorities) from hate crimes, to prevent negative discrimination without undermining the rights of others and to ensure the rights of minorities to practise their own religion in peace and without hindrance. So it’s about protecting the legitimate rights of minorities who are the likely victims of hate crimes and negative discrimination.”
KK Tan understands the NUCC bill as a draft law to protect the religious rights of the minorities who are the victims suffering hate and discrimination.
Tan’s hypothesis would logically presume that the hate wave is coming from adherents of the majority religion, i.e. the Muslims.
Hence the Malays, just like the rest of their Muslim brethern elsewhere in the world it appears, can’t run away from the perception that they’re “racists”, “extremists”, “religious bigots” and “haters” that has been created by the Christians. Why is Najib still indirectly empowering The J-Star (through his appointment of Wong Chun Wai as GMM trustee) despite the paper’s backstabbing role in the battle of perception?
