This may sound funny, but bear in mind that it is a speech at a forum for the exchange of ideas, not English elocution:
On the matter of terrorism:
In fact, Malaysia was one of the earliest venues for the British policy of containment as a means of defeating terrorism. Sir Gerard Templer's new village scheme worked on the assumption that effective control of communist terrorist required control of entire families and the communities that they formed into.
That Sabu has raised familial links as a factor in jihadism reflects the Malaysian experience during e the Emergency (and after, between 1960 and 1985), and in the present time where familial links have proven vital to jihadis in and from Malaysia.
On the matter of China and the South China Sea
Listen again and take note of Sabu's reference to the likely response from the United States to any Chinese aggression in the South China Sea.
Sabu's statements are consistent with Malaysia''s long held policy of non-alignment,which has allowed successive governments to work with the United States,, as well as Russia and China in all fields including defense.
