Jihad for Justice chairman Datuk Thasleem Mohamed Ibrahim Al-Haj stating that Perkasa and Isma were two small groups that were fighting against a perceived threat that was non-existent, calling on the media to starve them of the oxygen they needed to survive, which was publicity.

Say What?

“My goal was never to make Facebook cool. I’m not a cool person, and I’ve never really tried to be cool.”
