KUALA LUMPUR, March 17 — PAS rejects Zionism but is prepared to co-operate with Jews, party president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang has said.
“PAS rejects Zionism because it is a fanatical ideology of the [Jewish] race,” he was quoted as saying today by Bernama Online.
That reflects my views -- the Palestinians shouldn't have their rights violated by the Jews and vice versa.
However, individuals of Jewish origin should not be victims of hate-crime or unsportsman-like behaviour purely because of their nationality.
There have been instances where Israeli footballers have been booed on the field purely because of their nationality. How narrow-minded can Malaysians get?
This is the problem when people do things without thinking.
My passport does not allow me to go into Israel as Malaysia does not have diplomatic ties with Israel. This means Malaysians and Israelis do not do business.
This is very convenient for politicians. Bear in mind that Malaysian politicians have the tendency for being very hypocritical. The news from the grapevine is that most politicians have a bank account with Israeli banks.
Bear in mind that Washington-based watchdog group Global Financial Integrity said in a recent report that Malaysia lost $338 billion between 2000 and 2009 to illegal money outflows, ranking it fifth in the world.
What an ideal situation it is to have no political or economic ties with Israel, because no one from Malaysia is going to have access to Israeli banks and check where the money goes or comes from.
All the politicians do is pretend to show some concern and install some retarded scanners to detect bank notes at airports and border crossings!!! For real?!
At the end of the day, who is the fool?
The average Malaysian, of course, because he's fixated on chasing his tail, squabbling about affirmative action policies -- instead of looking at the real issue at hand.
