KUALA LUMPUR — Former prime minister, Tun Mahathir Mohamad said leading civilised nations should be doing the needful with regards to the ongoing Israeli-Hamas war.

“While we can’t expect the bloodthirsty Israelis to stop their murdering spree, we should at least see leading civilised nations doing the needful.

“They can make a difference.” Tun M said this on his post on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Saturday.

In the strongly worded message, the former premier reprimanded the civilised world for not being able to put a stop to the massacre of the Palestinians, including their children.

“The civilised world have achieved great things and even send people to the moon. And yet, they can’t even put a stop to the massacre of the Palestinians including their children.

“We fight for animal rights, only to allow people human beings like us being continuously humiliated in the worse possible way…abused, tortured and killed over more than 70 years!

“We fret over poverty and homelessness yet we see Palestinian homes being bulldozed, villagers evicted and their houses flattened, with the people still in them. And now entire neighbourhoods, buildings, hospitals are bombed and razed to the ground.

Tun M said that the civilised world witness before their eyes daily, genocide being committed yet there are those who remain silent, and quietly extend moral support and even arms, intelligence and funds. 

“What kind of people are these?

Mahathir also commented on the Israeli’s commitment to a 4-hour daily ceasefire, noting that this “humanitarian pause” is to allow the civilians to move to “a safe” place.

“Once this pause is over, the killings will continue and the non-combatants will die in droves, bombed and blasted into smithereens.

“It also seems that the US and its allies do not want the murders to stop.

Mathathir urged those in power to stop the relentless attacks on the innocent people of Gaza, especially the children.

“For goodness sake, these are children, the same age as our children, our grandchildren. Have we lost our humanity? Have we no compassion, no pity, no tears for them?

“We no longer have a right to claim we are civilised.

“We have become barbarians.” — Malaysiaxpress
