New Malaysian Prime Minister is Proud to Be an Anti-Semite

14 May 2018

92-year-old Mahathir Mohamad, recently sworn in as Malaysia’s prime minister, is proud to be known as an anti-Semite. “I am glad to be labeled anti-Semitic … How can I be otherwise, when the Jews who so often talk of the horrors they suffered during the Holocaust show the same Nazi cruelty and hard-heartedness towards not just their enemies but even towards their allies should any try to stop the senseless killing of their Palestinian enemies.”

Mohamad has a long history of anti-Semitic rhetoric. In Mohamad’s 1970 book “The Makay Dilemma,” he wrote that “The Jews are not merely hook-nosed, but understand money instinctively.” In 2012, Mohamad wrote on his blog that “Jews rule this world by proxy,”

At the 2003 Organization of the Islamic Conference summit in Kuala Lumpur, Mohamad said,  “1.3 billion Muslims cannot be defeated by a few million Jews. There must be a way. And we can only find a way if we stop to think, to assess our weaknesses and our strength, to plan, to strategize and then to counterattack. We are actually very strong. 1.3 billion people cannot be simply wiped out. The Europeans killed six million Jews out of 12 million.”
