The Prime Minister of Malaysia Tun Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad who Is a self confessed antI semite with history of appalling comments about Jews is welcomed this week to a number of universities. Imperial college and oxford to name but two. Shaking the hands of the likes of Sir James Dyson and
welcomed by the Provost, Professor Ian Walmsley, and the Vice President (International), Professor Maggie Dallman at ICL. Next week he is due to give a speech at Chatham house.

So I ask you now where are the protests, where are the hot air balloons of his image? Why are these centres of learning allowed to invite a man who has said
Jews has always been a problem in European countries. They had been confined in ghettos and periodically massacred.

'But they still remained and still thrived and held whole governments to ransom.

'Even after their massacre by the Nazis in Germany, they survived to be a source of even greater problems to the world.'

His views are abhorrent.

You'd think the Jewish Chronicle would be reporting on it, unfortunately they're too busy pushing their political agenda than covering such important issues as this.

Wait until they manage to lever in a Labour party angle.

It is not for a matter of one person protesting. FOr a protest to be effective you need the large organisations like the student bodies of these universities to speak out but they were too busy shaking his hand.

The whole thing has been conducted on the QT when the man should not have been invited in the first place.
