MALAYSIA yesterday defended a speech by former premier Mahathir Mohamad in which he congratulated Iraqi insurgents, saying he had the right to express his opinions.
Dr Mahathir applauded the insurgents, urging them to ensure the US paid a “high price” for its invasion of Iraq and saying that the flow of body bags would “help Americans to change their minds” about the conflict.
“I think (Dr Mahathir) has taken that approach and I would not say that the Government supports nor objects to it,” Foreign Minister Syed Hamid Albar said, adding that Dr Mahathir was free to express his views as a “citizen of Malaysia”.
“This is a free and democratic country and it’s very nice to see freedom being exercised,” he said.
*Last time I checked Malaysia was another Islamic cesspool and If I call Mahatir a turd that swims in it I am exercising my freedom of speech,- you’ll find that very nice, NOT?*
