Antisemite Mahathir will speak at G20 protest

According to this website, former Malaysian prime minister Mahathir “The Jews rule this world by proxy” Mohamed will share a platform in Trafalgar Square with Tony Benn, Arthur Scargill, Lindsey German, Daud Abduallah, Jeremy Corbyn, Ismail Patel and others at an “Alternative Summit” to the G20 at 3:30 pm on Wednesday April 1, sponsored by the Stop the War Coalition.

Update: Jeff Jacoby of the Boston Globe wrote after Mahathir’s infamous speech to the Islamic Summit:

Mahathir’s Judeophobia is an old story. More than 30 years ago he wrote: “The Jews . . . are not merely hook-nosed but understand money instinctively.” He has blasted Jews as “monsters”; in 1994 his government banned the movie “Schindler’s List” for being too pro-Jewish. When the Malaysian currency collapsed in 1997, Mahathir blamed it on George Soros, an American investor. “We do not want to say that this is a plot by the Jews,” he thundered at a rally, “but in reality it is a Jew who triggered the currency plunge — and coincidentally Soros is a Jew.”

The Anti-Defamation League has more about Mahathir’s vicious hatred of Jews.

Further update: As prime minister, Mahathir was a repressive violator of human rights. Unfortunately the US and other democratic countries gave him a pass when he took a tough stand against terrorism in the months after 9/11.
