A few weeks ago, over a cup of tea, someone quipped about Ezekiel 30:21 that reads:
"Son of man, I have broken the arm of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt. His arm has not been put in a cast so that it may heal. Neither has it been bound up with a splint to make it strong enough to hold a sword."
I thought for a while and found it a little funny since Pharoah means Firaun in Malay. This of course means if Hisham Rais were to say that Firaun obviously refers to our ex-PM during the Reformasi years. He still keeps saying it at times, but the first person who said that is the Senatak by the name of Ezam Noor. He said that loud over the speeches at that time, and ended up in the ISA for two years or so.
Currently speaking, if there are believers of Reformasi around, obviously, this passage makes sense. Politically speaking, Malaysia is ruled by over 50 years by an entity led by a Big Brother entity called United Malays National Organisation. If you speak of the problems that lies to the arrogance of that one big entity, perhaps this line in the bible can associate this situation to that. It will need People's Power to bring the might of an entity fit like a Pharoah down, if you get the beat.
