Subject: Re: Chin Peng vs Anwar
MM the son of Mahathir is making a mountain out of a mole hill in his own
interest. Chin Peng is an old man and is no more a threat to anyone. The
Malaysian government signed an agreement to allow these communists to return
and we fail to honour the agreement for Chin Peng. Allowing the Malay
communists to return without too much fanfair whilst refusing to allow Chin
Peng to return too is just plain unfair. The man is no threat to anyone now.
All these bullshit about the arm forces not forgiving him is just plain
Have you got a room ready for him in your house....
KAJANG: PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has come out in support
of former Communist Party of Malaya (CPM) leader Chin Peng’s return to
He said Chin Peng should be forgiven and allowed to return on
“If we are friends with China why can’t we have peace with Chin Peng?”
he told reporters during PKR’s special convention yesterday.
Anwar said Indonesia had already rehabilitated its communists,
although they were involved in atrocities against the people there.
The Malaysian government, he said, should do the same.
“We oppose the militant actions of communist terrorists and do not
support their ideology. However, if Shamsiah Fakeh and Rashid Maidin
were allowed to return, why not Chin Peng?” he asked.
Meanwhile, Deputy International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk
Mukhriz Mahathir said Chin Peng killed innocent Malayans, and he did
not do it under the instruction of the government of China.
“Therefore, it is wrong to compare the PKM (Parti Komunis Malaya) led
by Chin Peng to the Communist Party of China,” he said, stressing that
Chin Peng was a leader of a terrorist movement. Anwar’s statement
showed that he did not value the sacrifices of the Armed Forces who
defended their homeland, he said.
He challenged Anwar to find one member of the Malaysian Armed Forces
who agreed with his views.
