Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim revealed today that he had received multiple ‘threats’ from Western countries following his stand and support in defending the rights of the Palestinian people as well as criticising the Israeli government.
The Prime Minister said as long as he was given the mandate and trust of the people, he, as the head of the government, would not succumb to, or be intimidated by such threats.
As a sovereign nation, Malaysia will remain independent and continue to defend the country’s freedom as well as advocate the freedom of the Palestinian people, he added.
I have received numerous threats and I told them; you have chosen the wrong person. As long as I have the trust of the people, I will not succumb to such threats.
“We will continue to fight,” he said during his speech at the Malaysia Stands with Palestine Rally held at the Axiata Arena in Bukit Jalil and attended by about 16,000 supporters, tonight.
The Prime Minister also criticised the United States’ biased stance, condemning Russia regarding the Ukraine issue but supporting Israel in the Palestinian invasion.
Anwar pointed out that Israel’s arrogance, fuelled by support from the United States and Europe, led to horrific acts such as the intentional killing of infants during attacks on hospitals and schools.
PDRM said it has taken note of the threats and will heighten security for the PM.
