Identify the demons who tried to derail our good relations with Indonesia. This is the warning issued by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak (here) in Melaka yesterday.
I have written about it on Wednesday (here) about the 'hidden Opposition hands' that help fueled the tension emanating from the border dispute between the two close neighbors. Some are in Indonesia while some are here in our own compound.
There is no need for us to go into details what happened in Kalimantan or elsewhere along our common borders but the burning issue here is why must there be Malaysians wanting to incite diplomatic row between our two countries?
We have heard about many visits to Indonesia by our politicians who tried to seek support from hardliners across the Straits of Malacca to turn Malaysia into a republic - just like Indonesia, Singapore, the Philippines and Israel.
This is an issue for debate. I believe Najib himself is aware of the threats. Even His Majesty the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and the rest of the Malay Rulers must have heard about it - a Republic of Malaysia will lead to the demise of our monarchy!
Do I need to say more?
