PM will be liability to kidnappers, MP quips
PARLIAMENT Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak would be a liability, not an asset to kidnappers, quipped a DAP lawmaker.
“There are many threats to the prime minister. We heard that terrorists want to kidnap the prime minister.
“I don’t know if this will benefit the kidnapper seeing how the prime minister is a liability.
“We all know this. How is he going to be an asset to the kidnappers?” said Ramkarpal Singh (DAP-Bukit Gelugor).
The lawyer turned politician said this while commenting on the detention of two Australian journalists in Sarawak last weekend, after trying to question Najib on the RM2.6 billion scandal.
The duo had been arrested for allegedly approaching Najib “aggressively”.

Surely IS has higher priorities than to kidnap Najib
YOURSAY | ‘Having seen their prowess, it seems impossible that IS can fail in its mission.’
Maplesyrup: If Islamic State (IS) really targeted Premier Najib Abdul Razak, imagine how much his ransom could come up to.
But having seen their prowess, it seems impossible to me that IS failed in its mission to kidnap the PM.
Tulan: By right, I should be worried with such a remark that there was an attempt to kidnap our premier. Somehow or rather, I am not. Why?
Pahatian: Our Malaysian intelligence and Special Branch must be better than FBI, the Israeli Mossad, KGB and the Scotland Yard put together.
This is indeed some piece of news and it will be flashed around the world. But then, why would IS target the premier and the other Malaysian leaders?
Perhaps the RM2.6 billion donation. Either that or the government is trying to justify the need for the implementation of the National Security Council (NSC) Bill. Enough of this nonsense.
RM2.6 Billion Turkey Haram: Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, please learn from the roadside ubat sellers. They can tell very convincing stories.
It is pathetic of you that in your eagerness to curry favour with Najib, you have to resort to telling stories fit for kindergarten children.
Earlier, you had attempted to clear Najib on the RM2.6 billion donation scandal by claiming to have met donors in the Middle East. Now, it is about an IS attempt to kidnap Najib.
Of all leaders, IS chose Najib? For what reason? There are so many world leaders at the forefront in waging war against IS and never do we hear of any of them being kidnapped by IS.
It would be foolhardy of IS to come all the way from the Middle East to Malaysia to do the impossible. Too far-fetched a story.
Shamu99: Shall I laugh or cry. What is the purpose bringing this up now? And with Zahid’s credibility, will people believe him?
P Dev Anand Pillai: If we need to lie, let the lie be believable at least.
Old Timer: Any premier who can get a RM2.6 billion donation is a good target to kidnap, whether by IS or another criminal gang. This is a good storyline for a movie though.

IS wanted to kidnap PM last year, reveals Zahid
PARLIAMENT There was an attempt by Daesh (or Islamic State) to kidnap Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak early last year, revealed Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
The militant group Daesh has also targeted a few ministers, said Zahid in his capacity as home minister.
“On Jan 30, 2015, a total of 13 people with ties to Daesh had planned to kidnap the leaders, including home minister (Zahid) and Defence Minister (Hishamuddin Hussein),” he said at the Dewan Rakyat today.
