Malaysia, the strong and powerful player in international politics, issued an ultimatum to the UN Security Council to pass a binding resolution on Israel or else Malaysia would convene a special session of the UN General Assembly that would pass a pointless, ignored, non-binding resolution on Israel.

Such a scary threat. Wonder what US and Israel would do now (besides whimpering and sobbing, obviously).

Update: Malaysia is convening an emergency session of Parliament. About this issue. Considering the lack of diplomatic and economic ties with Israel, Malaysia has zilch influence on Israel. What a waste of taxpayers’ time and money.

Anwar Ibrahim:

“The long-standing problem is because the United States and Israel refused to deal with Hamas who administers the Gaza Strip.

“When we say Hamas is a terrorist organisation, what about the Israel’s own leaders who at one time were also known as terrorists. There must be fair play,” he said after launching the PKR main operation room for the Kuala Terengganu parliamentary by-election.

Israel only ask from Hamas to stop terrorism and attacking its civilians before Israel would deal with them. The question is not what happen in 1948 or 1956 or 1967. What happen most recently is that Israel made a direct overture to peace by withdrawing from Gaza and signal a strong willingness to cede territory for a two-state solution. Hamas biggest overture is offering a 10-year hudna (ceasefire). I’m sorry, I’m not sure how anyone reasonable can blame Israel for Hamas belligerence.
