Anti Malaysian Outbreaks In Indonesia

In the never ending tale of human hate and violence toward those who differ in some minor manner, there have been outbreaks of violence against Malaysians who currently live in Indonesia. The conflict arose because Indonesia and Malaysia became involved in a dispute over cultural “theft” which led ultra nationalists to raise the cry of let’s get those darn Malaysians who dare to live in our nation. The Relawan Ganyang Malaysia halted motorists and pedestrians in order to find any who might be of Malaysian background.

Why is it we humans are so readily prone to seek evil in someone who is not of our own background? Hatred is more readily aroused than love. Could you imagine Indonesians halting people out for a walk, discovering they were of Malaysian background and giving them a hug? Of course not, we are HUMANS– off with their heads!
