Utusan Malaysia the best selling Malay Language daily newspaper in Malaysia, which by the way is contolled by UMNO of which Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak is the head, has quoted several Malay politicians and activists as saying:
'Malays should put aside their political differences so that they can jointly resist pressure from the Chinese and Indian minorities'.
“The Malays must rise and unite in facing the demands of other races that are now seen as increasingly excessive,” said a paragraph in the article.

Najib has been talking about a '1Malaysia policy', that seems to be just that hypocritical talk, is it yet another case of no action, talk only?
UMNO it seems will never reform, lessons apparently still haven't been learned, and the complaisant 'head in the sand' attitude remains.

So it is now quite apparent (as visible as the balls of a dog in fact) which race in Malaysia is the most self-centred and overtly racial.
Who knows, but the good news will hopefully be the demise of UMNO and all race based political parties.

Meanwhile the Minister of Information, Communication and Culture (also affectionalely known as 'Ministry of Propaganda Propagation'), Rais Yatim was reported thus:
Rais Yatim said the ministry played an important role in establishing only the right kind of information* reached the masses.

“The government is not looking to find fault with bloggers and other Internet users but would like them to follow the law to ensure they did not misuse it.”
"It is not that we are looking for faults all the time. But we would like the right of the people to be guarded by the relevant authorities and the law. "Our aim is to see the 1Malaysia concept succeed. However, in order to succeed, the facts must not be twisted or misinterpreted by some until it raises racial sentiments.”
"If the right information* does not reach the people how can there be success”?
“So, I want everyone to understand and respect the law."
