Following is an article published by Channel News Asia complete with responses by TTF (in blue):
VIENNA: Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad on Tuesday (Jan 22) defended Malaysia’s ban on Israeli athletes, likening it to US President Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall along the US-Mexico border.
Malaysia sparked a row with Israel after saying it would not allow Israeli swimmers to compete in a tournament later this year that serves as a qualifying event for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics.
“Every country has the right to accept or refuse entry of anybody,” Mahathir told a press conference in Vienna on Tuesday.
“You can see that in America now they are erecting a very high wall to prevent Mexicans from going to America,” he said.
“We have the same idea, that people who are undesirable for our country will be kept out of our country,” Mahathir added.
TTF: Actually, Mahathir is well aware that the idea of having a border wall separating the US from Mexico was not Trump’s idea, but that of former United States (US) president Bill Clinton.
He knows, that the construction of a series of barriers separating the two states began in 1994 and was aimed at tapering the transportation of illegal drugs into the US.
Bill was into his second year as US president then.
Together with wife Hillary Clinton, he teamed up with George Soros and former British premier Tony Blair in 2017 to bankroll a WSJ and CNN-led media smear campaign against Trump.
The campaign was successful.
Today, many the world over actually think that Trump mooted the idea of having a border wall .
Truth is, it was Bill who first floated the idea during his 1995 state of the Union address to a joint session of the United States Congress (see video below).
Every American president since then has supported the idea on grounds that a wall would prevent Mexicans from entering the US illegally and curb the illegal trade of drugs manufactured in Latin America.
But here we have Mahathir telling us that Trump wants to build a wall just to prevent Mexicans from entering the US.
Mahathir conveniently left out the part about Trump’s focus being illegal Mexican immigrants and not those wanting to enter the US legally.
Perhaps our Prime Minister is reading from a script prepared by the Clinton-Blair-Soros complex, the very complex that initiated, planned and funded the Blair-led international conspiracy to sabotage 1MDB.
Last week Israel said the decision was motivated by “rabid anti-Semitism” on Mahathir’s part.
Malaysia has been an outspoken critic of Israel over its treatment of the Palestinian people. Mahathir, now 93 and in his second stint as premier, has in the past attracted criticism for verbal attacks on Jews.
Last week he denied accusations of anti-Semitism, saying: “It is my right to tell them they have been doing a lot of wrong things. Why can’t we say anything against Israel, against the Jews?”.
TTF: You may have a problem with Jews, Tun.
I, on the other hand, know that the problem has nothing to do with Israeli Jews.
On the 4th of December 2018, I wrote:
The Khazars are thought to be a warlike tribe whose origins trace all the way back to Medieval Asia, Europe and North Africa. Known to speak a diverse set of languages, they gradually domiciled in the northeastern section of modern European Russia before establishing various forms of capitalistic controls. Sometime between the seventh and ninth centuries, they began converting to Judaism en masse and started referring to themselves as Jews. Though apt insofar as religious convictions go, problems arose when the Western world found it difficult to distinguish between the Khazarian Jew and the Israeli Jew.
But that’s besides the point.
The point is, you have the right to prevent Jews from entering the country because you’re the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
But stop prostituting yourself for the Americans by helping them bitch about Tump.
Trump is building a wall to taper the transportation of illegal drugs into the US and not to prevent Mexicans from crossing over legally.
You, on the other hand, are preventing the Jews from entering Malaysia because they’re unfair to Palestinians.
These are mutually exclusive circumstances.
