Stop this madness at once

Malaysians of all walks of life are appealing and pleading with the Yang DiPertuan Agong and his brother Malay Rulers to stop the madness of the boycott of a number of commercial outlets and the attacks and threats against workers and customers.

This is not the Malaysian way of going about it although many of us are highly anxious and worried over the Israeli and Palestinian conflict in Gaza. By calling for boycotts these groups are just jumping from the frying pan into the fire.

The conflict in Gaza should be resolved by peaceful means and to the satisfaction of both warring factions. Malaysia’s involvement is suggested to be the role of a peacemaker to stop the conflict and tension from escalating.

By this hare brained idea of boycotting stores and outlets suspected to have Israeli connections these Malaysian and vigilante groups are just adding fuel to fire and it worsens the state of our economy.

Malaysia can ill afford to take part in the Israeli and Palestinian conflict as it lacks the much needed political clout and politicians in the country should refrain from trying to gain political mileage by jumping on the bandwagon.

It will be most helpful and beneficial to all Malaysians if His Majesty the Yang Di Pertuan Agong and his brother Malay Rulers intervene to give their wise, fair and impartial counsel so that people can move on with their lives.
