Mahathir Mohamad: strange views on 9/11
I’ve always considered Mahathir as the most dynamic Prime Minister of Malaysia.
He was, and is, a colourful character, constantly embroiled in one controversy after another.
His controversial comments were guaranteed to amuse or enrage you. Since leaving office, he has not changed one iota. You get the impression that he’s always spoiling for a fight.
He seems to be trying his darnest to erode the admiration of his many fans. It’s hard for him not to be in the limelight after 22 years as Malaysia’s longest-serving Prime Minister. After 22 years at the helm, we expect him to be a sagely elder statesman respected for his leadership in national and international affairs.
Instead, some of his comments make you cringe in their immaturity, childishness and shallowness.
This one, for example, sends my respect for him to the abyss:
“I am not sure now that Muslim terrorists carried out these attacks. There is strong evidence that the attacks were staged. If they can make Avatar, they can make anything.” (Sunday Times, Jan 24)
Perhaps, the moon landing was also the work of Hollywood.
