Kuala Lumpur: Malaysia’s Prime Minister, Anwar Ibrahim, has firmly rejected Western pressure to condemn the Palestinian resistance group Hamas. He emphasized that Malaysia maintains its relationship with Hamas and stands by its support. Anwar revealed that Western nations have been pushing Malaysia to condemn Hamas, but Anwar’s government is steadfast in its stance. Anwar pointed out that Malaysia has a longstanding relationship with Hamas and sees no reason to alter it.
The Prime Minister emphasized that the Western approach does not align with Malaysia’s policies. He highlighted that Hamas came to power through democratic elections in Gaza, and the people’s choice should be respected. Malaysia, a predominantly Muslim nation, has been a vocal advocate for the Palestinian cause and supports a two-state solution for the Israel-Palestine conflict.
It should be noted that Malaysia does not have diplomatic relations with Israel.
Anwar’s statement comes in the wake of international condemnation following the recent Israel-Palestine conflict earlier this month. Ever since the conflict started the Western media has been seen pushing Zionist propaganda and demanding condemnation of Hamas from Muslims. However, Malaysia’s stance remains unaltered, firmly asserting its support for Hamas and the Palestinian cause.
Malaysia’s rejection of Western demand underscores its commitment to its long-standing relationship with Hamas and the Palestinian cause, despite the Western world’s pressure.
