1. to take a cue from RPK cos he argues it much better,Some Chinese say they refuse to vote for PAS because they are worried that PAS may implement Islamic laws. But how can PAS implement Islamic laws when they will never have a two-thirds majority in Parliament? PAS contested only 60 seats out of 222 Parliament seats. Then they went and won only 23 seats.2. Pakatan is made of PKR, DAP and PAS - a coalition of 3 equal partners. DAP has already said no. Lulu is waiting for PKR to make their stand. However individual party leaders have already voiced their argument.
PAS needs about 150 seats in Parliament to change Malaysia from a Secular state into an Islamic state. But when they contest only 60 seats, even if they win all the 60 seats they contest it will still be only 60 seats. And they can’t win all the seats they contest. They can only win less than half the seats they contest. Where would PAS get the 150 parliament seats it requires?
Basically, Pakatan partners can say no. They can agree to disagree. Things cannot be carried out without an agreement from all parties.
Barisan however is made of one alpha party and many wimpy partners. When UMNO says "jump", [not just Liow, but] every wimpy dungu partner who says they are equal partners immediately respond, "how high?"
On Sept 29 2001 aka 929, the then PM Dr M declared Malaysia as an Islamic State. MCA and MIC, who began strutting around like a gibbon's backside on PAS statement, did not even breathe a whimper on this. After 929, every extremist and opportunist have been screaming at the moderates, "respect our rights! this is an islamic state!"
Where was MCA?
Where was MIC?
no.... they were busy explaining UMNO's policy to "their" own kind.

So...the PAS boys have started it again...so how?
I guess at times, we tend to vent things out in the open just way too often. Especially coming from someone in PAS with Malaysia's biggest brat, I believe we need to crystallize our thoughts. Of course, the thought of mass implementation of the Hudud Law has grave and far reaching consequences, we need to sometimes sit back and asked ourselves very basic questions. I think Lulu did it well and I must commend her for those insight observations. Obviously, I am not speaking on behalf of anyone or any political affiliation. With the KT by-election looming, I believe the MCA boys will take advantage to "frighten" the voters over there. Keep the 8 March spirits up. DO we still want to have a draconian BN rule or willing to take the chance with PR which has shown strong statesmanship over the past 8 months? I leave it up to you...I will like to paraphrase the thoughts of Lulu so that you will see things in a clearer perspective:
