Mahathir Mohamad — Muslim Moonbat ‘Moderate’?
Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad, who is considered a “moderate” in the Muslim world by the way, uncorked a rant about Jews that was as flaky as anything you’ll find on any moonbat Nazi website on the internet. Here are some of the lowlights…
”The Europeans killed 6 million Jews out of 12 million, but today the Jews rule the world by proxy,” Mahathir, a widely respected statesman in Asia and the developing world, said in a speech as he became chairman of the 57-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference. ”They get others to fight and die for them,” he said.
…Mahathir said Muslims had achieved ”nothing” in more than 50 years of fighting Israel.
”They survived 2,000 years of pogroms not by hitting back but by thinking,” Mahathir said. ”They invented socialism, communism, human rights and democracy so that persecuting them would appear to be wrong, so that they can enjoy equal rights with others.”
Mahathir said the world’s 1.3 billion Muslims ”cannot be defeated by a few million Jews,” but suggested the use of political and economic tactics instead of violence to achieve a ”final victory.”
Make no mistake about it folks, he may be eschewing violence for now, but the type of “final victory” over the Jews that Mohamad wants isn’t much different than the one Hitler wanted. Furthermore, Mahathir is no radical and his views are not on the fringes in the Islamic World. To the contrary, Naziesque levels of anti-semitism are commonplace — although of course not universally accepted — amongst Muslims the world over. Just look at the reaction from the other Muslim leaders who were there and you’ll see what I mean…
“Initial reaction to his speech was positive. “I think it was a very shrewd, very deep assessment of the situation,” said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Maher. “I hope the Islamic countries will be able to follow this roadmap. This one is a good roadmap by the way.”
Arab League chief Amr Mussa also voiced support for Mahathir’s comments, adding that the Islamic states have already said they wanted peace.”
There is no “talking it out”, no “being reasonable”, no “acting like adults” with people who have this sort of mentality. You’re either strong enough to defeat them or they’re going to kill you — it’s that simple. If the Israelis ever forget that or for that matter if we do, there will be a butcher’s bill to pay.
