Israel's illegal occupation of a significant amount of Palestinian territory is only part of the story of the oppression of the Palestinians.

The real Malaysia is a country divided not by race or religion or by the attitudes of the vast majority of its people but by what Singapore's former Prime Minister LEE Kwan Yew called "creeping Arabisation," under which a small number of policy makers and opinion formers are pushing the country in the direction of exactly the divisions the people have long resisted. Now the country has seen its first attack by someone claiming to represent the ideals of, if not actually represent, Islamic fundamentalist group Da'esh (aka ISIS or Islamic State).
