Who said this?

The Jakarta Globe reports a former Prime Minister of a certain country saying:

said on Wednesday there was “strong evidence” the US faked the September 11 terror attacks as an excuse to go to war against Muslims.

“There is strong evidence that the attacks were staged. If they can make Avatar, they can make anything,’ …

and as with many 911 conspirayc nutsm they are also anti-semites:

The former premier also blamed Jews for hindering progress in US foreign policy. Voicing his disappointment that Barack Obama had not yet ended the war in Afghanistan or closed the US terror detention center at Guantanamo, he explained that “there are forces in the United States which prevent the president from doing some things. One of the forces is the Jewish lobby.”

And the highlight being his disappointment over the final solution not being final:

Jews “had always been a problem in European countries. They had to be confined to ghettoes and periodically massacred. But still they remained, they thrived and they held whole governments to ransom,”

“Even after their massacre by the Nazis of Germany, they survived to continue to be a source of even greater problems for the world.”

This shows how extreme some anti-semites are. You would think such a speech should get the former PM condemned around the world, but instead his comments get largely ignored.

Now as blogged elsewhere, consider how people in Israel feel, when the former premier of one of the most economically advanced Muslim-majority countries openly endorses the view that Holocausts against Jews are natural and inevitable.

The former PM may surprise some (but not those who know him). It is not Iran, or a gulf state. It is Mahathir Mohamad of Malaysia.
