UUM ONLINE: Multi-racial Malaysians need to unite as a community that supports the vision of unity in order to develop into a modern society that is tolerant and progressive so as to uphold peace that has been achieved over the years.
According to Senator Prof. Emeritus Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Dr. Ibrahim Shah Abu Shah, the art of deceiving and defrauding done through the social media could threaten the well-being of the people, society and the nation.
"Jerry D. Gray, the author of The Art of Deception, states that the United States is a very powerful country but by some means it can be under the guise of a small force - Israel.
Similarly, the 911 or 11 September 2001 tragedy that destroyed the WTC in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, USA , the reality is far different from what the American government claims.”
He said this when he shared his experiences during a knowledge sharing programme called, A Political View - How Does Mass Media Affect Young Generation with the younger generation at the SOIS Auditorium, yesterday.
"The Islamic countries invaded by superpowers, for example, America causing stir in Iraq, Russia causing stir in Afghanistan because of oil. When Muslims are under attack in Palestine, Iraq and Syria no one can stop the actions subjected on them. "
"But Erdogen is fortunate to have the support of the Turks while Syria broke into two factions, the advocates and opposition fight each other even though they are of the same race, they are murdering and fighting each other.
"Problems arise when we are not united and a small spark can lead to destruction," he said in the programme jointly organized by the UUM Political Science Society and the Institute of Malaysian Political Analysis (MAPAN).
