Anwar & Rahim for homecoming of Chin Peng

Former DPM Anwar Ibrahim and ex-IGP Rahim Noor are supportive of legendary CPM veteran Chin Peng's return to his- and our - homeland. Yesterday, retired Deputy Director of the Police Special Branch, Datuk Yau Kong Yew met and joined Chin Peng in Haadyai to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the official signing of the 1989 Peace Accord.

Trustworthiness as foundation of social order

It is indeed a true reconciliation to have Anwar & Rahim seeing 'eye-to-eye' on this issue!

1. Multiracial patriotism in Malaysia (minus Umno & Utusan Malaysia) has progressed by leap & bound.

2. More and more Malaysians have matured, except Umno and UM ( & Rocky Bru, et al) which still suffer from infantile disorder.

3. There are human values which transcend politics, ideologies, races and religions.

Happy New Year from Hat-Yai! I heard about the CPM reunion and wanted to go down to the Lee Gardens to see some of the action. Unfortunately, I had some business abroad that day.

I would like to visit the Betong and Narathiwat CPM villages. I visited the Khao Nam Khang Camp (between Sadao & Nathawee) some years ago. Interesting & enjoyable. I kind of gather from a Karl Hack article that the Khao Nam Khang group fell out with the Betong group, and that there was even some sort of purge over the issue. Do ideological differences remain? Were the Khao Nam Khang group at the reunion?

Perhaps one more question. Did the dreaded General Chavalit materialise? He planned to, at one stage. One of the reasons I wanted to go was to see that hypocrite and dinosaur of Thai politics. I was rather hoping someone would demonstrate against him. But to be somewhat positive, perhaps we should be forgiving enough to say that the Hat-Yai Agreement was his one success in an otherwise utterly despicable & duplicitous career.
