Avatar Used To Justify The Belief That 9/11 Attacks in NYC Were Staged

“In September 2001, the World Trade Centre was attacked allegedly by terrorists. I am not sure now that Muslim terrorists carried out these attacks. There is strong evidence that the attacks were staged. If they can make Avatar, they can make anything,” said Dr Mahathir during his speech at the General Conference for the Support of Al-Quds here. Al-Quds is the Arabic name for Jerusalem.

For those of you that don’t know, Dr Mahathir was the Prime Minister of Malaysia from 16 July 1981 to 31 October 2003. He gave this statement, and others that will be in this entry, on January 20th, 2010.

Now that you have some background on this guy, let’s dive right into the heart of the matter. This guy is either senile, crazy, or both, but he’s most obviously a racist and should no longer be allowed to get near a reporter or microphone. How the hell can you say that because the US can make a 3D movie, we were capable of staging the September 11th attacks that killed around 3000 people? It’s absurd. Guess what, Dr Mahathir? Those holes in the ground in NYC aren’t special effects. They’re real. The people that died weren’t extras that shared a beer and laughed about the film later. They were real too. And they’re dead. Al’Qaeda claimed responsibility for the attack. The last time I checked, Osama Bin Laden wasn’t the Commander in Chief.

And, as if this weren’t enough, he went on to make plenty of off-color comments about the Jewish people and Israel.

“The Jews had always been a problem in European countries. They had to be confined to ghettoes and periodically massacred. But still they remained, they thrived and they held whole governments to ransom.

“Even after their massacre by the Nazis of Germany, they survived to continue to be a source of even greater problems for the world. The Holocaust failed as a final solution,” said the outspoken Malaysian leader who was noted for his anti-Western and anti-Zionist stand while in power for 22 years, until October 2003.

Nice job projecting your racist views about Jews onto the entire European population. He seems to imply here that all Europeans wanted to get rid of the Jews all along and that, given the opportunity, would have sanctioned their mass extermination. I must have missed that page in my history book, and I certainly don’t recall World War II playing out quite that way.

The only sensible thing to come out of his mouth was what he had to say about Obama:

“Well, I am a bit disappointed because so far none of his promises have been kept. He promised to get out from Afghanistan but he ended up sending more troops there instead. He promised to close down Guantanamo but he has not closed down Guantanamo. Even other things he has not been able to do.

“It is quite easy to promise during election time but you know there are forces in the United States which prevents the president from doing some things. One of the forces is the Jewish lobby, IPAC,” he said.

I wonder why he went easy on him? It might be because he feels like Obama is a fellow Muslim being oppressed by supposed Jewish powers in Washington.  This guy’s paranoia runs deep.

There should come a point in all of our lives, famous politician, rock star, or whatever, where we realize that we’re no longer competent to speak to the public. If we can’t see it in ourselves, someone should tell us, because obviously Dr Mahathir’s time has long since come and gone.

    Interesting. Appreciate the heads up.

    I heard he has done some good for Malaysia, but doing some good doesn't justify doing some wrong. You can't fill your scale with good deeds just so you can even it out with bad ones. The things he says are insane. So, take what good he's done and appreciate it, but don't blindly accept everything that comes out of the guy's mouth.

    I heard about the Sultan of Johor dying. I didn't realize Malaysia had sultans. I always associated that word with Middle Eastern countries. I'll try to look that up if I have time.

    Hi Brad. Well I have to agree with what you say. Over the past few years Dr Mahatir have said some very questionable things but he did do some good things when he was in power. For instance he curbed the royalties power in Malaysia as some of the royalties was abusing their authority. You should read up on it. It's interesting.
    P.S. Read about the recently deceased Sultan(King) Of Johor. You will be amazed.

    Well if he were actually in the movie then I guess he'd be more like
    one of the hyenas. Maybe the one the slightly retarded one.

  5. Brad F. · January 22, 2010

    Actually I was talking about how I think Dr Mahathir would interpret the movie, since his world view is obviously skewed. I know what Lion King is and when it was made. I went to see it twice at the movie theater when I was a kid.

  6. U R WHAT U READ! · January 22, 2010

    so i guess he is Scarface in this Lion King picture then?

  7. Dude · January 22, 2010

    You are really into all these symbolism [shit], aren't you?

    FYI, Lion King is intended for kids and debuted at least 5 years prior to the War on Terror. Evil Jews & repressed Muslim people; you've got to be kidding me.

    Ignorance knows no boundary.

  8. Brad F. · January 22, 2010

    Nah. With the way this guy thinks he'd say the hyenas are
    representative of poor Muslim countries, that Simba represents the US
    and that Timon and Pumba represent evil Jews subtly convincing Simba
    to repress the Muslim people. No worry that it doesn't even follow the
    storyline properly.

  9. Dude · January 22, 2010

    He might as well watch Lion King in 3D and conclude that lions talk and hyenas laugh.

  10. Brad F. · January 22, 2010

    Some people grab at straws to prove a point and wind up looking like

  11. Brad F. · January 22, 2010

    That made me laugh! Ya I was thinking the same thing. Maybe he got his
    PhD on sale at Walmart.

  12. Dude · January 22, 2010

    It's amazing how a “doctor”/PhD like such can barely distinguish facts from fiction and ends up make such a ridiculous statement in public.

    Perhaps it's the 3D glasses that he wore in the theater….

    it's a well known fact that James Cameron had the storyline for Avatar for a few years already, but held on to it until technology caught up with his futuristic production.
