I agree with you Zaid if you have the balls to quit now. Quit and be a real man.
Yes, it has never been justified to abuse ISA for political reasons or other reasons as we have ample legal avenues to charge the detainees in court if they are really guilty of their acts.
We have to repel this draconian act and let us under the rule of law.
However, UMNO goons need ISA for their political survivals in crashing different opinions or dissent. That's why we do not need UMNO just to protect its leaders, not rakyats and country.

De facto Law Minister Zaid Ibrahim today threatened to resign if the government continued to use the Internal Security Act, which he described as 'unjust'.
The outspoken Barisan Nasional politician also called for the immediate release of DAP MP Teresa Kok and controversial blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin who were held under the security law which provides for detention without trial.
"We have a government that commits to laws and reforms, we can't be using old-style politics or resort to creating fear. We have laws and they (the detainees) can be charged in court."I am trying to meet with Prime Minister (Abdullah Ahmad Badawi) this week to convey to him my position. If (he considers) my position untenable, I will leave," he told Malaysiakini in a telephone interview from Kota Baru, Kelantan.
The minister, who is a lawyer by training, held a press conference in Kota Baru earlier, where he also spoke on the same matter.
