Jews 'had to be periodically massacred'

The former elected leader of Malaysia, Mahathir Mohamad, spoke openly of Jews this way at an Islamic conference. Australian journalist Andrew Bolt brings us the story, and notes "he expected his views to win support."

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."

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," Mahathir said.

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

When the former prime minister of one of the most economically advanced Muslim-majority countries, Malaysia, feels free to openly endorse, or at least accept as natural and inevitable,  Holocausts against Jews, it is fair to posit that such views are common among the world's billion or so Muslims.

The world watched and did nothing when Nazis moved against the Jews. History appears to be repeating itself. This startling news is getting very little play, so far. Matahir, who also believes in a 9/11 conspiracy theory, ought to be shamed fort hese words, but somehow I suspect that the "human rights" community will remain silent, as will CAIR and the Muslim lobby.

Why aren't more American Jews concerned at the brewing second Holocaust? The signs are clear.
