  • Israel/Mossad, America and their puppets don’t want Malaysia to build Islamic bloc for the betterment of Muslim Ummah. OIC and Saudi’s are a big Joke. There are so many conflicts in Muslims World, Palestine/Gaza issue, Kashmir issue, Burmese Muslims and their struggle as minority, conflict in Yemen (the real Arabs), Conflict and drought in Somalia, treatment of Muslims in
    Philippines and Muslims in concentration camp in China.
    Muslims have been targeted, Muslim women have been raped and Muslim Men were slaughtered but Saudi’s/OIC has done nothing.

  • Nawaz Shareef made Pakistan into a poodle of any country with money. We are in debt so have no option. Death sentences for the level of corruption our previously rulers carried out.
