Dr Mahathir Mohamad continued his tirade against the western media saying that the media in western world were the worst censors.
He said, however, the western media was always quick to condemn others, especially eastern media of censorship.
In making a comparison when he was Prime Minister, Dr Mahathir said he was often accused by Western nations, particularly the Western media, of controlling the press.
“Since retirement I read a lot about the administration of Western countries. The censorship they practise on their press and publication is more stringent than anything we have seen here.” said Dr Mahathir.
Dr Mahathir further took a dig at how the Americans and the Western media have been totally forbidden to utter anything against the Jews and in specific Israel. He also said, “They may not also report about the un-American activities of the Jews in their own country.”
Dr Mahathir went on to narrate how the banking system in United States (US), that is controlled by Jews, have been manipulating politicians into going into meaningless wars in order to earn profits,
“They abuse the financial systems to such an extent that financial crises would plague the countries and even the world every now and again. And when they go bankrupt they force governments to borrow money from them to bail out their companies and banks.”
He particularly picked on Rothschild and his family who created the banking system and the setting up of the Federal Reserve System as the central bank of the US saying that: “ Almost all the other great bankers in the US and European countries were people with clearly Jewish names……but effectively this fact is not allowed to be mentioned.”
Dr Mahathir in drilling his argument deeper said that the media and publishers have practically been barred from publishing anything that may be considered anti-Semitic and if they tried, it will be censored.
He said, “one can condemn any race or nation for anything whether false or true but no one may condemn the Jews….it is clear that there is censorship in the West and it is even more rigid.”
Dr Mahathir categorically chastised the west for being hypocrites of sorts and stressed that, “the West has therefore no right to lecture others about freedom of speech, of the media or of publication. They themselves do not practice what they preach. They are the worst censors in the world.”
