Olympic torch relay in Kuala Lumpur. Thanks but no thanks!
Seems everything is calm, if you only read news from mainstream media such as thestar
The Olympic flame, housed in a special container, arrived on a special plane early yesterday morning from Bangkok.
On hand to receive the delegation led by Beijing Olympic Games organising committee (Bogoc) executive vice president Jiang Xiaoyu was OCM deputy president Datuk Dr M. Jegathesan, Kok Chi and China’s Ambassador to Malaysia Cheng Yonghua.
Current top and former athletes are among the 80 torchbearers participating in the relay, which is stopping in Malaysia again after 44 years.
Malaysia last hosted a leg of the Olympic torch relay when Japan became the first Asian country to host the biggest sporting event in the world in 1964.
But the evil western media show not so pleasant story.
According to Bloomberg, Malaysia Detains Five, Avoids Olympic Torch Disorder. Ireland RTE, Protestors detained in Kuala Lumpur. Both highlight one serious issues
Malaysian police have detained a British woman and a Japanese family who waved Tibetan flags at the start of the Olympic torch relay in Kuala Lumpur.
The Japanese family was attacked and hit with inflated plastic batons by Beijing Olympic supporters along the torch route, before being taken away by police.
The family members were questioned about their travel documents. A British woman was also questioned after holding a Tibetan flag.
More than 1,000 security officers were deployed along the route of the 16.5km torch relay in Kuala Lumpur, which ended at the Petronas Towers, the world’s second tallest buildings.
Take note : Beijing Olympic supporters!
If those supporter are from China, they should be reminded that they are in Malaysia. What the heck they make as hooligans, in a land that they has no rights
If those supporter are from Malaysia, shame on you! You just tainted Malaysia image!
And to PDRM, although they are slow on “save” or arrest(according to western media), they arrest those hooligans for breaking the law. Why the double standard? During the HINDRAF relay crowd, police beat and fire water canon towards peaceful crowd. Alas, when so called “Olympic relay”, a bunch of hooligans beat up people, and worst, those are Malaysia guest, PDRM didn’t do anything.
It seems many people just forget, the origin of Olympic relay resemble Marathon.
Pheidippides, a Greek soldier, who was sent from the town of Marathon to Athens to announce that the Persians had been defeated in the Battle of Marathon. It is said that he ran the entire distance without stopping and burst into the Senate, exclaiming “ενικήκαμεν” (Nenikékamen, ‘We have won’) before collapsing and dying of heart attack.
It doesn’t say the Athens people beaten up tourist when Pheidippides shout “ενικήκαμεν”(Nenikékamen, ‘We have won’).
