|Contrary to what Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim (BABI)) would like us to believe, Mahmoud Abas and Najib are very close friends!|
It would be extremely insensitive for Prime Minister Najib Razak not to look at a bigger picture before visiting the besieged Palestinians in Gaza.
Contrary to liars such as Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim (BABI) who said Najib's visit had incurred the wrath of Abu Mazen, another name for the Fatah's leader Mahmoud Abas, the visit to the Gaza Strip was sanctioned by the leader of the PLO.
That liar with a straight face lied again to the country and the people.
For the record, requests were made to visit the West Bank also but the Israeli government did not allow this state visit, unless Malaysia recognise the state of Israel.
"I have always wanted to see for myself the state of being of the besieged Palestinians, and had wanted to visit both Gaza and the West Bank but was unable to do so due to the volatile political situations there.
"The Israeli gave an indication that we have to recognise the state for a visit to the West Bank, but the price is too high. And Abu Mazen understood this. Our visit was purely humanitarian, nothing more nothing less," he said before leaving for Egypt.
Back home BABI should make a similar trip if he has the guts to do it. We must praise the prime minister who had the courage to do it inspite of being advised not to do so, in view of the risk factor.
"In the final analysis we all have to die. But I am a Bugis-Malay and a Muslim, and I believe in fate if I am to die in Gaza or anywhere else so be it that is God's will, thank you," he gave almost wry smile, when asked the question on danger posed to his safety and his entourage for this visit.
