The Malaysian Insider - Malaysia two-faced in Saudi blogger saga, says US paper
Of course The Washington Post has been absolutely correct in labelling our government, as demonstrated by the brazen blatant bullsh*tting Home Minister, Hishamuddin Tun Hussein, a “champion of double-talk” for denying the Malaysian courts had barred the deportation of Saudi Arabian blogger Hamza Kashgari.
The Malaysian High Court’s order stopping the deportation of Kashgari was handed to his lawyers but the Home Minister ignored it and assisted Saudi officers extradite the victim to his eventual execution in a draconian State, where it is likely Kashgari will be decapitated, as per known Saudi tradition, in front of a mosque immediately after Friday prayers.
But The Washington Post should also know its own country, namely the United States of America, is no better. In fact there is no country more double-faced than the USA, self proclaimed bastion of democracy.
It fosters, nurtures and protects not democracies but dictatorships around the world, including the Al Sabah family dictatorship in Saudi Arabia and the late Mubarak government in Egypt.
It persecuted democratically elected Hamas government in Palestine while supporting the corrupt and loser al Fatah, on the orders of Israel.
It condones the brutalities of the governments of Yemen and Bahrain while working actively to dethrone Gaddafi in Libya.
It bombed Serbia for attacking Kosovo while it supplied weapons of destruction and financial aid to Israel for attacking Gaza.
There is no greater hypocrite than the USA.
But it doesn’t hide nor mitigate the hypocrisy of the current BN government of Malaysia.
