MY friend Dr M (not Tun M) sent me a video recently of a senior-ranking police officer giving a lecture on a topic of immense interest to me, and I believe to many Malaysians too.

From the way he looks and speaks he is probably from Penang, and possibly from the police force’s Counter-Terrorism Unit. His lecture was about the dangers of Islamic State (IS), Syiahs and Salafis who use violence to achieve their aims. He warned his audience that Malaysia must not become another failed state like those that litter the Middle East, and that we must therefore ensure that our enemies are defeated.
