Malaysia PM compares Soleimani assassination to Khashoggi murder

MEMO | January 15, 2020

Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad yesterday slammed the US assassination of Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani and drew parallels with the 2018 murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Both killings took place “across boundaries” and were in breach of laws and constituted immoral acts, argued Mahathir at a press conference in the city of Putrajaya. “We are no longer safe now,” he said. “If anybody insults or says something that somebody doesn’t like it’s alright for that person from another country to send a drone and perhaps have a shot at me.”

Taking to Twitter, Mohamad also asked: “Is there any difference between the killing of Soleimani and that of Khashoggi?”

He reminded the US of its disastrous war in Vietnam: “The great power, employing all its military might, all its technology and huge sums of money was defeated by the black pajama[sic]-clad unimpressive, undersized Vietnamese.” He also criticised the illegal US invasion of Iraq in 2003, stating that the war was supposed to be over in three months, yet the negative effects persist almost 20 years later. “[Iraqi President] Saddam is dead but is Iraq much better than Saddam’s times?” he asked.

Last month, the Malaysian Prime Minister hosted the Kuala Lumpur Summit for Muslim countries by calling for new strategies to deal with crises facing the Islamic world and greater unity, especially against US economic terrorism in the form of sanctions. Saudi Arabia, which leads the Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC), shunned the event and pressured Pakistan not to attend.

  1. Malaysian P.M. Mahathir Mohamad is 100% correct. Soleimani’s death, authorised by President Trump, using an excuse that he was going to kill someone else, was a straight out case of Murder, by Trump. When you have Murder carried out across borders, to kill your political enemies, it is still murder. It is a disgrace, and now, any Prime Minister/President anywhere in the World, can be murdered with impunity.
    This is not going to end well.

  2. This is great. Malaysia stands tall in the Muslim World and the world at large.

    Will I see this “real” news on, e.g., CNN? Not holding my breath…censorship-commission (of journalistic malfeasance) by omission is ever-present/stock-in-trade in the MSM and elsewhere as well. (Even PM MM should have made the connection between the evil twins USrael!–and perhaps he did.)

    Eff KSA: the Ziomonster’s whore/bed partner. It has been cleverly manipulated by the ilk of Kushner and his Jew-Zionist tribe, making my decades-long worst nightmare come to awful reality. Trump’s “bully” image, instincts and actions, meanwhile and in tandem, have been read perfectly by the ultimate “bully” Ziomonster, and it and its Zioagents have used him to further their enterprise of “full-spectrum global dominance” in the Mideast and other venues. (I retract: whores have more principle and decency, and likability, that these basta*ds.)

    Pity the Palestinians, the bully-ee. Endless sadness for them….

    General Soleimani: R.I.P., if that is possible to you.
