“Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said if Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was loyal to Jewish groups, he could not be loyal to his own country.” (Bernama, 12 July 2010). On the basis of this logic, a certain ex-PM called Dr. Mahathir has been disloyal to Malaysia.
Mahathir had engaged Salmon Smith Barney (a Jewish firm) as his financial advisor during the currency crisis. He had also engaged Goldman Sach (another Jewish firm) for other tasks. Mahathir’s son, Mirzan, worked for Salomon Brothers (a Jewish firm). Mahathir reconciled with George Soros, a Jew he once despised, when Soros visited Malaysia a few years ago and openly declared (for reasons which are still a mystery) that Soros had not been responsible for Malaysia’s financial crisis.
Abramoff, a Jew, arranged a meeting between Mahathir and George Bush after Mahathir’s government paid US$1.2m to the Heritage Foundation managed by Abramoff. These are only just some of the Mahathir-Jewish partnerships. So who is the Jews' good friend? Mahathir or Anwar? Perhaps Dr. Mahathir is again suffering from his (convenient) mental lapses that he experienced during the Lingam enquiry (when he said that could not remember basic details) and has forgotten his partnerships and links with Jewish firms and individuals.
Mahathir has also frequently labeled Anwar as a US lackey, and lately Rais Yatim, a Mahathir sycophant, has called Anwar a CIA agent on the basis of another Utusan trash (see John Mallot's article: Rais Yatim should apologise to Anwar Ibrahim.) Yes, Anwar has worked in US universities and has good friends in the US. Some prominent people from the US spoke up for him during Sodomy I and are speaking up again during Sodomy II. Anwar does not lash out at the US like a certain hypocrite suffering from acute oral diarrhea. Does that make Anwar a US lackey or a CIA agent? RPK's recent question, Who is the US agent? Anwar or Najib?, points to someone else as the CIA agent - Mahathir.
It is Mahathir who is the US lackey and stooge, the real thief who shouts “thief, thief, thief, …” to divert attention from himself. In his address to the Heritage Foundation on 3 May 2002, Malaysia’s defence minister, Najib Tun Razak, provided full details about Malaysia’s covert arrangements with the US in defence matters (see http://www.heritage.org/Research/Lecture/US-Malaysia-Defense-Cooperation). This has also been mentioned by Barry Wain in his book, the Malaysian Maverick.
Looking at what had transpired between the US and Malaysia, especially in defence and economic matters, during Mahathir’s rule, one cannot but conclude that Mahathir had made Malaysia a vassal state of the US, a state which depended on the US for its progress as well as survival. Malaysia under Mahathir provided US the most support in defence in South East Asia. Malaysia’s economy was also most dependent on the US, the US emerging as the number 1 export market and investor for Malaysia.
Can such a close bondage in two of the most critical areas be possible if the relationship between Malaysia and the US was adversarial as made out to be by Mahathir? Can a nation (Malaysia) afford to be against another nation (US) when it depends on the latter for its economic survival and security? Only a fool would believe it to be otherwise.
Mahathir made a fool of Malaysians by acting and pretending that he was anti-US, all the while serving as a stooge and a lackey of the US. Malaysians thought that Mahathir was brave and spoke out against the US. Many third world countries and Islamic nations too bought Mahathir’s Oscar-winning acting and proclaimed him as the spokesman of the third world and Islamic nations. Little did they know that Mahathir was allowed to make all those anti-US statements so that he could deceive them to serve as a US stooge.
Martin Jalleh wrote in MT in January 2010 that Dr Mahathir is a Creation of the US but only a few people took note of this article. The article provided sound arguments to expose the real Mahathir, a hypocrite who would stop at nothing to satisfy his fathomless greed for power, wealth and fame.
Just think for a minute. Can Mahathir make all those caustic statements about the US and get away with it unless the CIA has allowed him to do so? As Mahathir contends, if the US can produce Avatar, they can even stage the 9/11 Twin Tower terrorist attack. So, what is so difficult for the CIA to deal with Mahathir, unless Mahathir was their man doing their bidding?
