Anwar And The Powers That Be Infantile Colic

Hantu Laut

His credibility is falling.Respect for him is falling.His American and Jewish friends have thrown the gauntlet at him for his anti-Jewish remarks.He is best friend to one of the biggest proponents of the Iraq War that killed hundreds of thousand of innocent Iraqis. The Jewish-controlled press is now going all out to skin him alive.

B'nai B'rith International (Global Voice Of The Jewish Community) asked the US government to severe ties with Anwar Ibrahim.Full text of the letter is published in its magazine. Part of its article is shown below.
In a letter sent to the State Department, the Senate’s Committee on Foreign Relations, and the House of Representatives’ Committee on Foreign Affairs, B’nai B’rith International decried anti-Semitic statements made by Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim and implored U.S. officials to cut ties with the leader.

“[Ibrahim’s] frequent criticisms of the government of Prime Minister Najib Razak are infused with anti-Jewish and anti-Israel slanders, such as his April 30 assertion that Israeli spies are ‘directly involved in the running of the government,’” the letter reads. “On another occasion he alleged the presence of ‘Israeli intelligence personnel in the Police IT unit.’”

Ibrahim has also accused Jews of controlling a public relations firm hired by the Malaysian prime minister and claimed that he has evidence of Israeli influence on the Malaysian government.

“In light of the role that Ibrahim has played in the resurgence of anti-Semitic polemics in Malaysian politics,” the letter continues, “we ask that U.S. officials suspend their ties with Anwar Ibrahim. A purveyor of anti-Jewish hatred such as Ibrahim should not enjoy the measure of legitimacy that a positive relationship with the United States would confer upon him.”

This darling of the West, a putative liberal Muslim they called him, would rather be the object of scorn at home than that of the West.The West is more precious to him than his own people.

The New Ledger, renounced support for Anwar and admonished CNN's skewed portrayal of Anwar as an angelic Muslim leader and victim of Malaysian government's conspiracy to halt his political career.CNN is well known for its lopsidedness.

CNN, bad journalism, and Anwar’s apology tour.

by Joshua Treviño

Following up on my piece a few days back on Malaysia’s Anwar Ibrahim, CNN International’s Connect the World program featured Anwar this past Friday. The interview, apparently taped as part of his U.S. apology tour for whipping up anti-Semitism back home, nicely encapsulates everything that’s wrong with Western media coverage of Anwar — and indeed, of problems in journalism at large. This much softball usually involves 18 women, underhand pitching, and the NCAA.

The clip in question is embedded here. Keep in mind, as you watch this, that the entire reason Anwar Ibrahim is making this media appearance is that he’s spent all of 2010 attacking Jews. Count the number of times CNN mentions this


That’s right: zero. The interview in its entirety mentioned the major news about Anwar Ibrahim exactly zero times. Read more.

Chameleonic Mr Anwar Ibrahim has gone to Washington to apologise to the Jewish society of America.

Who is going to vote Anwar Ibrahim as prime minister of Malaysia?

The Americans, the Jews or Malaysians? Are there foreign funds bankrolling Anwar's political campaign? Otherwise, why the need to apologise? Why should he cares what the Jews think of him.

Are not Malaysians the ones who will determine his political future?

That's Anwar Ibrahim.Consumed by his own intelligence.

Let us take a look at what is wrong on the other side of the political playing field, the incorrigible powers that be, where the kitchen is always hot and the leaders unsure and jittery.

Obviously, our DPM has taken criticism from fellow Malays not as a source of constructive new ideas but as a source of annoyance here.

Senator Ezam Mohd Nor accused the Star and Malaysiakini as being anti-national for publishing grievances of unpaid foreign workers building the new Istana.Can there be anything more shallow than this?

How could publishing news of public interests be considered as anti-national or Ezam much preferred sweeping it under the carpets.

Look like freedom of the press, freedom of speech and freedom of exchanges of ideas are going back into the Pandora's box to be locked permanently.

A locked cannon is more dangerous than a loose cannon!
