The Bersih Coalition is calling for drastic changes in country’s electoral system which it claims is biased in favor of the ruling coalition – while targeting country’s Prime Minister Najib Razak. The protests are aimed to effect the coming June election.
Police used tear gas to disperse the protesters, shut-down much of city center and closed of the central Merdeka (Independence) Square to prevent the protesters entering the downtown area. The protests and police action remind me of Occupy Wall Street mass protests being held in various US cities since last year, but criticized by every pro-Israel politician and NGOs.
Last December, Egyptian government blamed some US-based pro-Israel NGO’s for interference in country’s internal affairs. Now, it seems these NGOs, such as, ’Freedom House’, the ‘International Republican Institute’ and Jewish billionaire George Soro’s ‘Open Society Institute’ are working to bring a pro-Israel regime change in Muslim majority Malaysia.
Malaysia’s former Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir Mohammed has warned that the ruling Barisan Nasional Party (BNP) is targeted for regime change due to its stance on Israel and criticism of US policy. Mahathir has also accused the United States of using currency manipulation and US-funded NGOs to orchestrate the kind of destabilization needed to install a compliant proxy government.
In 2010, Malaysia’s so-called ‘moderate Muslim’ opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim, had claimed that Israeli Mossad agents had infiltrated into country’s security forces.
Nile Bowle posted an informative article on his blog about the coming pro-Israel regime change in Malaysia.
“Following documented cases of United States-based organizations funding pro-opposition civil society groups associated with civil unrest in Russia and the Middle East, Chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasan acknowledged that the Bersih coalition received financial support from the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and George Soros’ Open Society Institute (OSI). The Bersih Coalition has also received support from the US-based Freedom House, an NGO that receives direct funding from the US State Department. While concern over electoral corruption and the various legitimate grievances of Bersih supporters may be entirely justified, the coalition’s association with opposition Political parties and groups financed by the United States government suggests subversion“.
The Ziocon propaganda media outlet, the New York Times (April 14, 2011) had revealed that organizations such as the National Democratic Institute receive funding from the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), a recipient of funds directly from the US Congress.
“The security situation deteriorated as defiant protesters refused to disperse, prompting demonstrators to overturn a police vehicle. Protesters and black-shirted police officials threw broken bottles, pieces of metal and concrete slabs towards each other, prompting police to fire tear gas and water cannons at demonstrators, causing hundreds to disperse into side streets. While footage of the recent police crackdown circulates throughout international media, Malaysia’s ruling Barisan Nasional party is again the subject of international criticism. As public discontent grows with the administration of Prime Minister Najib Razak, the unpopularity of the Malaysian ruling party has set the stage for the victory of Anwar Ibrahim’s Pakatan Rakyat opposition coalition. As the United States shifts its military focus to the Pacific Region, Anwar Ibrahim’s adherence to western political institutions will likely warrant the continued nurturing of unrest in Malaysia until the opposition successively usurps power,” wrote Nile Bowie.
