Since its establishment (initially as Malaya) in 1957, Malaysia has rejected formal diplomatic relations with Israel and has kept contacts on a low flame at best. Reasons include Malaysia's desire to cultivate ties with the Arab countries and the power of domestic Islamic trends. Malaysian animus toward Israel grew during the 1960s, although a certain level of commercial activity between the two countries was tolerated. In 1981 the openly anti-Semitic Mahathir bin Muhamad was elected Malaysia's prime minister, and he continued his public condemnations of Israel and Jews while strengthening Malaysia's support for the PLO. Although during the Oslo era he somewhat moderated his statements, he ended his tenure in October 2003 with an anti-Semitic diatribe at a meeting of the Organization of the Islamic Conference. Since then Malaysia has remained cool toward Israel, claiming that relations depend on a solution of the Palestinian problem.
The signing of the Israeli-PLO Declaration of Principles on 20 August 1993 brought Mahathir to lower his tone. Malaysia's deputy foreign minister announced in parliament that Malaysia welcomed the Israeli-PLO agreement. Mahathir, on a different occasion, said Malaysia would consider diplomatic relations with Israel, but first Israel had to do more to bring peace to the Middle East. He expressed hope that Israelis and Palestinians could now live in peace and that all Palestinian land would be returned, and pointed out that the future status of Jerusalem remained unresolved.
Revealing misplaced enthusiasm, the director-general of Israel's Ministry of Industry and Trade, Yosi Snir, requested clarification from Malaysia on the issue of permitting economic relations with Israel. Only upon receiving a response, he explained, would his ministry remove Malaysia from the list of countries from which imports were forbidden. In addition, the spokesperson for the Israel embassy in Singapore said Israel looked forward to Malaysia taking steps to normalize commercial and diplomatic relations with Israel.
In July 1997, when Malaysia faced a severe economic crisis, Mahathir was convinced it was caused by the Jewish financier George Soros. It seems Soros's dealing in Malaysian currency harmed the country's economy, and the reports in Malaysian newspapers were full of anti-Semitic innuendos. Mahathir tried to explain this: "We are not anti-Semites. The Arabs are also Semites. Just as people make a connection between Islam, Muslims and terrorism, there are people in this country who are inclined to connect [dealing in foreign currency] with Jews. . . . I think that most Jews are innocent, but the impression is that the Jews have a lot of money. They know how to manipulate money. . . . "
Despite Malaysia's many provocations regarding Israel, especially during Mahathir's tenure, the country has not generally been of great interest to Israeli policymakers or to Asia specialists in its Foreign Ministry. Sharett was an exception, and Meir in the 1960s and Rabin in the 1990s also showed some interest. Otherwise prime ministers and foreign ministers have been indifferent, even though Mahathir's pronouncements in particular could have prompted Israeli countermeasures in the United States.

THE OPPORTUNITY COST OF MALAYSIA'S SUPPORT FOR THE PALESTINIANS, ARABS, IRANIANS AND ALL THINGS DONE BY MUSLIMS
Malaysia is, quite incorrectly I'm afraid, always adduced as an example of a progressive, forward-looking, prosperous Muslim state. In fact its prosperity would be considerably diminished but for its Chinese and Hindu population. All Malays are required to be counted as Muslims, and all Muslims benefit from a disguised jizyah tax on non-Muslims which is called the "Bumiputra" or "Sons of the Soil" system. Most Westerners are unacquainted with the "Bumiputra." But anyone living in Malaysia who is unaware of the "Bumiputra" system has not yet sunk beneath the surface of Malaysian life. Although the word means "sons of the soil," it is not the indigenous Malaysian tribes that benefit from the "Bumiputra" policy, but Malay Muslims alone.

Pewaris deputy chairman II Rahimuddin Md Harun told a press conference here that any protest during the procession was inadvisable as it might offend the sensitivities of others.
Yesterday, Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar issued a warning that police would take stern action if the procession was used to stage illegal protest demonstrations.
Kugan's remains will be brought from the University Malaya Medical Centre near here to the Batu 14 Puchong crematorium for final rites before being cremated.
PEWARIS and Malaysian Muslim Consumer Association (PPIM) came about after Umno's drubbing in GE-12. It is very clear that both NGO's are backed by Umno namely by the likes of Khir Toyo and Muhammad Taib. These two NGO's are nothing but racist and extremist in their agenda.
PEWARIS and PPIM have no business to warn or threaten anyone. The mourners of the Kugan funeral procession are venting their anger against the Police and the BN regime and NOT AGAINST ISLAM OR THE MALAYS. It is very clear here that Umno is using both NGO's to stir up racial unrest so that the blame can be pinned on Pakatan Rakyat and Hindraf. In doing so, the Evil BN/Umno regime can use the ISA to detain Pakatan Rakyat leaders while at the same time be seen as the champion of the Malay race and Islam.
Another interesting note is that why does a consumer rights association like PPIM put their noses in something nothing to do about consumer rights? Just imagine the Consumer Association of Penang or FOMCA being involved in Anti-ISA Vigils. The Scribe calls upon the Registrar of Societies to IMMEDIATELY de-register both NGO's as they are a threat to national security.

The Scribe is concerned with the threat made by Selangor CPO Khalid Abu Bakar that the Police will take action if this Wednesday's funeral procession of Police brutality victim the late A. Kugan. The Selangor police have warned those attending the funeral of A. Kugan, who died whilst in police custody, not to participate in any illegal gathering or carry banners and posters. The Selangor Police Chief said the funeral should not be politicised or turned into an illegal demonstration as it would disrupt public order and lead to chaos.
The Evil BN/Umno regime is fearful that the funeral of Kugan will not only turn into a public display of anger against the Police but also against the Regime itself. The Scribe has reason to believe that agent provocateurs will be planted by the Special Branch among the crowd of mourners to instigated trouble so that the Police and the Evil BN/Umno regime can blame it on Pakatan Rakyat and Hindraf. This will be the excuse Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar will need to to use the Police Act. the Emergency Ordinace Act and the ISA to stifle public dissent against a corrupt and discredited despotic regime. The organizers of Kugan's funeral must exercise extreme caution so as not to give the Evil Police the excuse to act.
The following is courtesy of MALAYSIA HINDU VOICE
HINDRAF is questioning the integrity, accountability and transparency of the police force in cohort with the AG's office in issuing statements just to create an atmosphere to subdue public outcry.
Most Malaysians are aware that murder is a non-bailable offence according to the Penal Code. The brutal murder took place on January 20, 2009 and it has been four days and all we hear are contradicting statements from the police force and the AG's office as usual from their mouthpiece, the mainmedia spinmasters to downplay the whole incident. Kugan's brutal murder was committed while he was in detention in the police station not elsewhere, why do the police force and AG's office needs three (3) days before even classifying it as a murder or arresting the accused police murderers? Why those who committed this have not been arrested until today?
Why such double standard? Is it because he is a defenseless Malaysian Indian? Is this going to be another cover –up and hoodwinking process for the public to absorb? Why is there a preferential justice for the perpetrators, just because they were police officers? Enough is enough, the late Kugan is also a Malaysian and he deserves equal treatment in the cause of justice in parity with any other Malaysian for the atrocity perpetrated by the police murderers or anyone else under Article 8 of the Federal Constitution.
The police force and the AG's office are government servants working for the interest of the public in administering the governance of the nation and not in a position where they have discretion in preference for the police murderers and use it as and how they wish to administer that is suitable to their position to suppress the due process of law against public interest.
The foul play by the UMNO led administration through their executives is totally unacceptable as this is a brutal murder that took place while the late Kugan was in custody. The implementation of IPMC is paramount to ensure accountability and transparency prevails for the society as human right abuses and violations prevails within our systems with the current lopsided administration in the interest of the public.

Re: The case of Kugan.
The marks on his neck are suggestive of having had some wire or cord tightened around his neck.
I hope the autopsy included careful full dissection of his neck,because in cases where a person is strangled to death, often the Hyoid (a small bone in the neck) is broken.
Using a broken Hyoid bone as evidence of strangulation was taught to myself and my classmates by a professor who was known for his forensic skills.
I think (don't recall for sure) which blood vessels rupture when a person is strangled. eyes? lungs?
