Hardly a shock, but worth noting nonetheless. ‘Moderate modern’ Muslim Malaysia’s previous proclivities in regards to Hamas have been noted here at Jihad Watch before, so Malaysia’s (restated) condemnation of Israel’s self-defense and (restated) staunch support of Hamas was merely a matter of time. From “Malaysia condemns Israeli attacks on Gaza, calls for UN action,” The Star, 15 November 2012:
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia has urged the United Nations, particularly the Security Council, to take immediate resolute action over what it called
irresponsible military action by Israel against innocent civilians in Gaza.
If you’re a moderate Muslim government like Malaysia, when is any Israeli military action not ‘irresponsible’?
Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman said Malaysia condemned in the strongest terms the continuing Israeli military assaults and air strikes on Gaza, which have led to the deaths of a Palestinian leader and seven others, including two children.
The aforementioned ‘leader’ was a terrorist and murderer of numerous civilians, but this somehow fails to merit a mention in the quoted Malaysian media piece.
“Malaysia urges all parties involved to stop any provocative action, remain calm and exercise restraint to avoid greater damage and loss of life,
especially among the civilian population in the Gaza Strip,” he said in a
statement on Thursday.
Malaysia also demanded that Israel immediately cease its military aggression towards the Palestinian people, he added. -Bernama
Strange how this Foreign Minister has had absolutely nothing to say when Muslims, like Syria’s Assad, or beloved Hamas for that matter, demonstrate any kind of military aggression towards anyone. It’s only non Muslims who are apparently capable of ‘aggression’.
