This is no surprise, coming from Mahathir. He has a long history of Jew-hatred, going back to his notorious and paranoid statement that “Jews rule this world by proxy.” This kind of thinking is rife in the Islamic world, since Islamic Jew-hatred is in the Quran. Mahathir was able to become Prime Minister of Malaysia again at the age of 92 because his views are mainstream among Malaysians and Muslims in general. The hatred that he expresses here also gives rise to the “Palestinian” jihad against Israel and Jew-hatred that is rising in Europe because of the massive influx of Muslim migrants.
“Malaysian Prime Minister: ‘Anti-Semitism’ is Term Invented to Prevent Criticism of Jews,” TheTower.org, August 16, 2018 (thanks to Mark):
Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said in an interview Monday that “Antisemitic is a term that is invented to prevent people from criticizing the Jews for doing wrong things,” as he dismissed anti-Jewish hatred as an artificial construct to stifle debate, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported.
“There is one race that cannot be criticized. If you are antisemitic, it seems almost as if you are a criminal,” Mohamad, an avowed anti-Semite, told the Associated Press. “When somebody does wrong, I don’t care how big they are. They may be powerful countries but if they do something wrong, I exercise my right of free speech. They criticize me, why can’t I criticize them?”…
Mohamad was elected into office in May and has since been in the spotlight for his anti-Semitic rhetoric based on a decades-long record of incitement against the Jewish people. On his personal blog, he entertained anti-Semitic conspiracies, such as the Jewish plot for world domination. “Jews rule this world by proxy,” Mohamad wrote in 2012….
In his 2003 address to the Organization of the Islamic Conference summit in Kuala Lumpur, Mohamad vowed that “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 6 million Jews out of 12 million,” Mohamad said in an apparent attempt to incite a second Holocaust.
He has also said he was proud to be an anti-Semite. “I am glad to be labeled antisemitic […] 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.”…
