Although I do not wish to be branded an alarmist or prophet of doom, I would urge Pak Lah for the sake of the nation and the safety of the people not to ignore Khir Toyo's warning of possible ugly racial clashes if as Prime Minister he couldn't control people like Ahmad Ismail to stop spewing racist remarks against other races in the country.
The situation is getting tense and would be out of control if Pak Lah doesn't take remedial action to stop it from deteriorating further.
Now is the time for him to show to the Malaysian people that he is Prime Minister for all Malaysians and issue an ultimatum to Ahmad Ismail to stop, apologise or face arrest.
Ahmad Ismail is defiant because he thinks the Prime Minister is weak and dare not take action against him and he has shown little respect for the Prime Minister.He wants to go down in the history book as the defender of 'ketuanan Melayu' and Malay rights.He is trying to rile up the Malays against the Chinese.The tearing of the picture of former Penang Chief Minister Koh Tsu Koon by Ahmad Ismail's supporters should not be taken lightly by UMNO and the PM.
Pak lah should put the nation and the people safety first.Refusal to observe this supreme responsibility as head of the nation would render him a lame-duck prime minister and should consider stepping down.
I am sure Pak Lah doesn't want to go down in history known as the man who destroy this nation.
Don't just say you are unhappy with him, do something and do it quickly.
