Yet Another Anti-Semite for Troof
Former PM of Malaysia re-reveals himself as a kook.
Later, during a question-and-answer session, Dr Mahathir said he had doubts that the collapse of the World Trade Centre in New York was actually caused by terrorists crashing planes into the towers.
He said the buildings had collapsed in an orderly manner with such military precision that it all seemed well planned.
“I can believe that they (the United States) would kill 3,000 of their own to have an excuse to kill 650,000 Iraqis. These are the kind of people we are dealing with. Please don't think this is fiction.”
Of course the folks at 9-11 Blogger are happy to welcome him aboard uncritically. No looking into his past to see if this is the kind of guy you want inside your tent. And as you can probably guess, the past is pretty ugly:
Meanwhile, Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad told the leaders of the 57 member states that make up the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) during a summit in Malaysia on 16 October that Muslims have been outmaneuvered by Jews, who cleverly devise ways to manipulate powerful countries.
Mahathir said the way to defeat Jews is not through "physical power," as he put it, but through "brains."
"[Muslims] are actually very strong," he said. "1.3 billion people cannot be simply wiped out. The Europeans killed 6 million Jews out of 12 million [during the Holocaust]. But today, the Jews rule this world by proxy. They get others to fight and die for them."
In 1983, he banned "Jewish music", resulting in a cancellation of an appearance by the NY Philharmonic:
Malaysia's Information Minister says the New York Philharmonic orchestra's cancellation of two performances because of a Government policy against Jewish music ''won't hurt anybody.'' The Philharmonic's decision last Friday not to play in Kuala Lumpur Sept. 2 and 3 came after the Government of this predominantly Moslem nation in
He's also something of a homophobe:
Former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad recruited Anwar for Malaysia's ruling United Malays National Organization more than two decades ago and groomed him to take over until the Asian financial crisis. Anwar, who called for reform then, was dismissed by his boss and imprisoned for almost six years on corruption and sodomy charges.
Malaysia's Federal Court, the highest court of appeal, quashed the sodomy conviction in 2004, although it upheld the corruption charge, which means Anwar cannot run for public office until 2008.
The charges against Anwar constituted a "show trial" according to Al Gore. The Wikipedia entry notes (but does not cite):
Al Gore and the United States were critical of the trial of Mahathir's former deputy Anwar Ibrahim, going as far to label it as a "show trial". The trial itself was a tawdry spectacle. The government included the statements of the purported "victims" of Anwar's sodomy attacks, evidence that was widely considered to be tainted. Furthermore, the prosecution was unable to accurately decide on a date that the alleged acts of anal sex had occurred - the government originally alleged that a sodomy had occurred inside a building that had not been constructed at the time of the alleged event. Mahathir himself went as far as to go on television to declare Anwar guilty of sodomy and homosexual acts, even as the trial still was underway. In response to widespread condemnation of the trail from human rights groups and the Malaysia bar association, he ordered a crackdown on the media and opposition parties who protested the trial.
So, heck of a pickup there, "Truthers". BTW, care to guess who we have to thank for this?
"We want him (Dr Mahathir who is chairman of Perdana Global Peace Organisation) to help us set up an international commission to reopen the investigation," said Jimmy Walter, who has brought together individuals under the Reopen 911 organisation dedicated to opening a real investigation into the tragic attacks.
Joining him were American Free Press journalist Michael Collins Piper, Yvonne Ridley who is the political editor of Islam Channel United Kingdom and William Rodriguez, the last man to run out of the WTC before it collapsed.
They claimed to have evidence that the towers came down in a controlled demolition, and that a much bigger agenda lurked behind the war on terror, unleashed soon after with the attack on Afghanistan and Iraq by United States-led forces.
