Mahathir and the Jewish question

Fighting is in the Arab DNA. Then you have the Arabian Arabs, the North Africans, the Turks, the Persians, and so on. And all hate one another. So the British were able to exploit this division to not only break up the Ottoman Empire but to create the state of Israel as well.

NO HOLDS BARRED

Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has always been ‘no holds barred’ and never holds his punches when talking about the Jews, Zionism and Israel. In that sense he is brave because no world leader would be so bold as to say what Mahathir says.

You can watch Mahathir’s BBC HARDtalk interview below where he talks at great length above Anwar Ibrahim as well.

But then Mahathir sometimes gets confused between Jews, Zionism and Israel and lumps all three into the same basket. The Jews as a people, Zionism as a political platform, and Israel as a country or nation, do not mean the same thing.

Not all Jews live in Israel and not all Jews support Zionism. In fact, there are more non-Israeli Jews and more anti-Zionist Jews then there are Zionist Israeli Jews.

The Muslims allowed this to happen by not uniting

Anyway, Mahathir’s statement that the creation of the state of Israel is the reason for all the problems in the Middle East is not entirely correct. Actually it is the other way around. It is because of all the problems in the Middle East that the British were able to create the state of Israel. So the Middle East problems came first, the state of Israel followed later.

Long before Islam the Arabs were fighting one another. When Prophet Muhammad died they continued fighting and even created ‘two Islams’, so to speak — the Sunni and the Shia (both calling each other heretics).

Fighting is in the Arab DNA. Then you have the Arabian Arabs, the North Africans, the Turks, the Persians, and so on. And all hate one another. So the British were able to exploit this division to not only break up the Ottoman Empire but to create the state of Israel as well.

So, don’t blame the west or the British. Blame the Arabs. See what is happening in a small country like Malaysia when the Malays split into five. They lose power and the Chinese, who Mahathir used to call Asian Jews, dominate the country.

Fighting one another is in the Arab DNA, which is why the French and British were able to destroy the Ottoman Empire and create the state of Israel

Would you blame the Jews for wanting their own homeland? Since long before Jesus Christ the Jews were persecuted. Of course, it was also partly their fault because they dominated the economy and this created a lot of resentment. Then they did not assimilate but kept to themselves and stayed apart from non-Jews.

But the problem is the Jews were pendatang in every country they lived in and they had no interest in becoming ‘locals’. Because they had no nation of their own, they became insecure and were very sensitive to criticism. Any race or community that does not have its own country and needs to tompang in other people’s country feels very insecure and cannot tolerate criticism, even in these modern times. They also become militant, which is what the Jews were like long before the time of Jesus Christ.

Now the Jews have their own country. But Israel is surrounded by enemies so the Jews need to continue to be militant. At the moment Israel is quite secure because it is more or less the 51st state of America. As long as America is still around Israel is safe. But if China ousts America as the policeman of the world, the entire scenario will change.
