This is in response to your editorial claiming that Mahathir was right in accusing Jews collectively of controlling the world. How would Muslim people feel if a leader of a country stood up on a public platform and called all Muslims murderers and terrorists?
Every leader should respect all faiths and thus for Dr. Mahathir to label all Jews as arrogant and perpetuate myths about so called ” world control ” is racist , unfair , demeaning and should be rightly condemned especially by Muslims who are trying to correct any negative images and stereotypes of themselves in the wider world.
