Fuego De Dios -Part Three- Hot Potato

"Blame it on the tron, catch me in a zone. Blame it on the alcohol."
Blame It - Jamie Foxx

While the churches are in the mosh trying to recover from the flaming cocktail party this morning, the people holding the staffs of power are focusing on having the blame NOT thrown at them.

Let us look at it this way: Why did it all start? What sparked this? No. We don't have drunk Muslims in Malaysia. They're either very, very holy or they're scared of being caned or beaten up in public. They're not deranged teenagers because these churches couldn't have possibly have done anything that could stir up these kids. Neither are they knocked up lunatics because they attacked not 1, 2 but 3 CHURCHES and not random buildings.

And it was not even targeted at one particular faith. The three churches were Brethren Evangelical, Roman Catholic and Assembly of God churches. Even BBC reports that this issue of the word "Allah" has become the target of heated demonstrations across KL as shown below.

Divided faiths
The controversy stems from a ban on a Catholic newspaper, The Herald, using the word Allah.
The Kuala Lumpur High Court struck down the three-year old ban on use of the word Allah - a ruling now the target of planned demonstrations.
Some major Muslim organisations, including the Islamic political party, PAS, have agreed with the court, saying other Abrahamic religions - Christinaity and Judiasm - may use the word Allah. 
But some vocal groups, including the Muslim Youth Movement, Abim, have cast the use of the word Allah as a surreptitious effort on the part of Christians to try to seduce Muslims away from Islam.
Church officials say that although the word Allah originated in Arabic, Malays have used it for centuries to refer generally to God, and Arabic-speaking Christians used it before Islam was founded, says the BBC's religious affairs correspondent Robert Pigott.

This is in itself a test. A test of faith for the faithful, a test of courage for the believers and a test of perseverance for the worshippers. For a few it is a test of tolerance, but most of all it has put one thing to the test. The one plan that was drafted many many years ago by the Democratic Action Party to create a Malaysia for Malaysians. It was shot down by UMNO due to certain conditions, and was erected once again on the same principals, now called 1Malaysia.
