Malaysia…….The Preferred Destination For All The Wrong Reasons……..

KUALA LUMPUR: Suspected Jemaah Islamiah terrorist Yazid Sufaat, who allegedly abetted and housed several terrorists involved in the September 2001 attacks in the United States, has been freed from Internal Security Act detention.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said Yazid, 44, was released with another Malaysian, Sulaiman Suramin, on Nov 24.
“We released him as he had shown remorse and had repented,” he added. (Remorse? Repented? How certain are they? Bcos he constantly nods in agreement to every single statement the rehabilitators say? How sure are they that what goes on in his mind and heart is the same as what he professes through his mouth?)“His release was conditional upon his reporting to the police from time to time and not leaving the state without prior permission from us.
“Our officers will also be monitoring him, as well as several others who had been released over the past years, to ensure they do not go back to their old ways,” Musa said. (Yes, our police officers are very well-known for their “diligent monitoring”)
It is learnt that the Government had over the past year released 17 suspected JI members, eight of them Indonesians.
Yazid, a biochemistry graduate from a US university, was detained in January 2002 and is said to have allowed his home to be used in early 2000 as a meeting place for al-Qaeda members planning the Sept 11, 2001, attacks in the United States.
Mind you, Yazid was not only a well-connected and well-trained JI member, but he was also a biochemist who had headed an Al-Qaeda anthrax programme on using the deadly biological agent for terror attacks. This is the sort of person who has already decided where his path will go……straight to “a heaven that is laden with virgins“………definitely not the sort who would be easily persuaded to go back onto the “right path” by some ustaz who couldn’t even out-debate Raja Petra.
No, this time it’s not about ISA…..I still believe that we should abolish this draconian law and everyone should get their day in court………rather it’s the way our law enforcers (who wouldn’t think twice about detaining the ordinary man on the street who happens to support Non-UMNO-friendly causes citing security concerns), determines (with prejudice?) “who stays” and “who goes“, based on very flimsy reasons.
Which brings me and a couple of friends to come up with this conspiracy theory of sorts………it may seem far-fetched but seriously, Malaysia’s been quite the frequent reference to these terrorists, don’t you think?
Could Malaysia be, sort of, “allowed” to be used as some sort of transit base for these terrorist networks, as long as they “guarantee” that Malaysia will never be the target of terrorist acts? Perhaps, some greasing of the palm took place too?
After all, what better decoy than a “peace-loving” nation that is all about smiles, great sunshine and imbecilic politicians? Perhaps, like what one commentator said on Malaysia-Today, just like MM2H (Malaysia, My 2nd Home), our ever innovative and “pro-active” authorities are thinking about starting a MMTH (Malaysia, My Terrorist Hub)?
And please, don’t even get me started on how the other non-desirable crime-based syndicates prefer to settle down in our country too.
What do you think?
