  1. Aptly described in WSJ:
    “Whatever their calculations, Malaysia’s politicians tarnish their nation’s image when they engage in jingoistic rhetoric and pander to radical Islamists. Ordinary Malaysians deserve better.

    Mr dear Malaysians, look at this Israel-Palestibe issue objectively. Let’s not be emotional when we don’t really know waht is actually happening there.

  2. Another half truth and true lies from UMNO and Khairy. He vowed, I will take on Israel but his master UMNO and Najib continue to cohabit with Apco.

  3. When the Crusaders attacked Jerusalem, the Jews were ALL put to death (for “killing” Jesus). The Roman Catholic Church also initiated many pogroms against Jews throughout Europe.
    Many christians (catholics, methodists etc) today will also like to do the same.
    Lucky there are no Jews in Malaysia, or today some would be hanging from lamp posts.
    No wonder many non malays are migrating.

  4. Dear Anil,

    Here’s more damning information:

    “These data come from the American Near East Relief Association (ANERA), which provides relief to Gazans to the extent permitted by the Israeli (and American) authorities. ANERA is neither “pro-Israel” nor “pro-Palestinian.” It has no political agenda at all. It merely determines what human needs are and tries to respond to them.

    8 out of 10 Gazans depend on foreign aid to survive.

    The World Food Program says Gaza requires a minimum of 400 trucks a day to meet basic nutritional needs – yet an average of just 171 trucks worth of supplies enters Gaza every week,

    Clothes that were held in the port of Ashdod for over a year were released into Gaza but arrived covered with mold and mildew, unusable.

    95% of Gaza’s water fails World Health Organization standards leaving thousands of newborns at risk of poisoning.

    Anemia for children under the age of 5 is estimated at 48%.

    75 million liters of untreated sewage are pumped into the Mediterranean Sea every day – because piping and spare parts are not permitted.

    During the 2009 bombing:

    More than 120,000 jobs were lost as Gaza’s industrial zone was destroyed… 15,000 homes and apartments were damaged or destroyed… 1/3 of all schools were destroyed.

    None of these can be rebuilt, because construction supplies are kept out by the Israeli authorities”.

    And a cynical quote from Senior Israeli Government Advisor
    Dov Weisglass:

    “The idea is to put the Palestinians on a diet, but not to make them die of hunger”


    Once again, I equate Gaza to the Warsaw Ghetto!

  5. It is so sad to a nation born out of the fires of World War II and the Middle East conflict turn into a nation without human feeling and conscience. It has become a nation of monsters. The constant conflicts of the Middle East created a culture of barbaric violence in Israel.

    This incident has changed the world’s perspective on Israel. We are seeing Israel as a bully. It is the gangster of the Middle East. This incident has removed any remaining sense of sympathy for Israel.

    • LBJ,
      Before you start talking think for a while, in the 5 wars, 1948, 1956, 1967, 1973 & 1982, could you tell me who attack who first. In the Lebanon war 2 years ago, again who attack who.

  6. Charity begins at home. So when are these hypocrites going to protest for the Penans who were deprived of their land rights in Sarawak? Very convenient to ignore abuses of human rights committed by UMNO/BN. Besides why are we interfering in the business of others. I thought UMNO had told other countries not to interfere in our business in Malaysia? Sounds like the kettle is calling the pot black.
