      hi marlin and blupzaseic,welcome to the blog.anwar might have been thrown into the rubbish dump. but he survived the cauldron of fire. i think he came out a better man.as to his credibility being tarnished, how many politicians are cleaner than him? i think many are worst but not exposed.lets give anwar a chance to redeem himself. look around the political landscape now and you can’t find anyone that is near to his calibre. the whole UMNO is a washout.

    Maybe I shd warn you that if you go to other countries, their Muslim satrdands may differ from ours. Once I went to Petronas to conduct some trg. At the end of the class, I was asked to hand out the certificates of attendance. A Malay-Muslim lady came forward. She was wearing a tudung. She was quite talkative in class. As she held out her hand, I thot she wanted to shake hands like the others. So I put forward my right hand to shake her hand. Instead she withdrew. She actually wanted to receive her cert. Quite embarrassing for me. But she realised my ignorance and tried to put me at ease and continued to be chatty as if nothing happenedIt’s rather confusing for us. On tv I often see the MP Halimah shaking people’s hands even tho she was wearing a tudung. Anyway, to be safe, nowadays, when I am introduced to Muslim ladies, I never offer my hand before them.

      Correction, they are trying to form a coitalion now, but from the looks of things, it does seem that in Perak at least, the DAP-PKR-PAS coitalion will be still-born. There are rumours currently circulating in KL that AI is trying to get several UMNO ADUNs to cross over and help form the state government because of the problems the DAP is causing now. One thing you got to realise about the Malays is that they may disagree and fight over politics but they will close ranks and unite for the betterment of the community and religion if need be. It happened before in 1969 when PAS joined BN, albeit briefly and it can happen again. Lim Kit Siang is playing with fire. I also think whether the Sultan of Perak is dabbling with politics or not is immaterial simply because it is his right within the State Constituiton to appoint whoever he believes is the right candidate. Unless you can read his mind, there is no way you can conclude with any certainty on what basis he came to the decision, so it is very presumptous on your part to be levelling unsubstantiated accusations at him. The PAS guy is a British-trained engineer, while the PKR candidate was a former postman. Perhaps you can now see why the Sultan chose the PAS guy ?
