Nations must rise against Israel - Dr M

Former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said Sunday that civil society must exert pressure on governments to shun hypocrisy and rise against Israel.

The Perdana Global Peace Organisation chairman also said the world should not allow an apartheid state to continue its oppression of the Palestinians.


In his address at the Breaking The Siege: In the Spirit of Rachel Corrie and Mavi Marmara international conference, Mahathir said: "We must call upon all governments not to be hypocritical and stand up to this rogue state called Israel."

He also termed Israel an “apartheid state” which must not be allowed to continue such oppressive policies (read here).

He said the December 2008 invasion of Gaza not only resulted in the deaths of Palestinian civilians but also an outpouring of aid which did not reduce the suffering of the people. "The invasion saw more than 1,400 civilians, men, women and children killed, and more than 20,000 homes, schools and hospitals were destroyed.
"

Dr Mahathir also said that PGPO will study the law of the sea to find the legal implication on Israel's action to board the lead ship of the humanitarian aid flotilla, Mavi Marmara and once they knew the legal implication, the organisation would take action on Israel (here).

"What Israel has done is actually piracy and now Israel is detaining the ship...that is wrong. Once we know the legal implication, what are the provisions of the law of the sea, then we can take some action," he told reporters after the closing of the international conference by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

In a related development, Dr Mahathir said the US compelled the UN Security Council to impose sanctions against Iran in order to weaken the country and lay the ground for a military attack (here).

"The world is made to believe once again the lie that Israel's existence is being threatened by a nuclear armed Iran," he said, adding that these sanctions were adopted despite the fact that Mohamed ElBaradei, the former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), had repeatedly stated that there is no evidence of Iran pursuing military nuclear program.

SORRY TO SAY, SUCH A CONFERENCE IS A WASTE OF TIME. I AM FOR THE PALESTINIANS BUT THE ISSUE HERE IS WASHINGTON. THE AMERICANS MUST BE PRESSURED TO JOIN OTHER NATIONS IN WORKING FOR A PEACEFUL MIDDLE EAST.

orang arab yang bodoh. kalau mereka bersatu tenaga ketenteraan, tak sampai satu hari pun israel dah musnah.

pedulik apa dengan amerika! amerika pun banyak bergantung kepada minyak negara arab.

amerika kena pilih juga nanti untuk memelihara ekonominya atau memihak terus kepada israel dan melihat minyaknya habis!

Jai,

"Wherever I went, I now saw Jews, and the more sharply they set themselves apart in my eyes from the rest of humanity". (Hitler, in Mein Kampf)

"In those days, Hitler was no means a Jew hater. He became one afterward"- Reinhold hanish, a friend of Hitler in 1909.

I am not a supporter of Hitler's Nazi but I am in the opinion that Hitler has perceived that Jews are manipulators, only keen to garner profit in whatever means and very slick in their demeanors.

So, I totally agree with what Dr M in urging the world/nation to rise against Israel.

Unfortunately, in Malaysia some people such as the former Masjid Tanah Umno youth Division Head have close business relation with Israel, he import Satellite dish from Gilat ( Israel manufacturer) and supply to TM and Digi.

Jai, you should not allowed Israel supporter in your own backyard....

What say you?..

kita sebenarnya perlu meminta masyarakat dunia menekan amerika kerana merekalah dalang kepada semua kekejaman israel di bumi palestin.

barack obama, dalam usahanya mendamaikan pihak yang bersengketa, sebenarnya hanya melepaskan batuk di tangga dengan lebih memihak kepada sekutunya tel aviv.

selagi amerika tidak didesak menghentikan sokongan kewangan dan sennjata kepada israel, selagi itulah krisis timur tengah akan berlanjutan dan nasib rakyat palestin tidak akan terbela hingga bila2

conference after conference... what has we gained?

its good to hold an international conference like this but the key question is, did the us take part?

without us participation, it would be meaningless....
