Times of Israel puji Najib kerana ‘mesra’ Israel?


Ini satu lagi perkara yang boleh dibanggakan oleh Najib selain dari menjadi satu-satunya Perdana Menteri dalam dunia yang bermain golf denganPresiden AS, Barrack Obama.

Tun Mahathir pun patut kagum dengan pencapaian Najib ni sebab Tun adalah di antara pemimpin Malaysia yang sebelum ini lantang mengkritik Israel kerana penjajahannya terhadap negara Palestin.

Dr Mahathir juga digambarkan media barat sebagai seorang yang "anti Yahudi" kerana kelantangannya membela rakyat Palestin.

Anwar Ibrahim pula walaupun dituduh sebagai agen yahudi oleh macai-macai juga tidak pernah mendapat pujian dari media Israel.

Tapi.. Najib dipuji oleh akhbar Israel kerana walaupun Najib melemparkan kritikan, agak ketara pemimpin Malaysia itu bercakap positif mengenai agama Yahudi dan mengiktiraf Israel sebagai 'teman bicara sah.

Najib dikatakan bercakap positif tentang agama Yahudi dan mengiktiraf negara itu sebagai "teman bicara sah" semasa Perhimpunan Agung Pertubuhan Bangsa-Bangsa Bersatu (PBB) di New York, Amerika Syarikat, baru-baru ini.

"Walaupun Najib melemparkan kritikan, agak ketara pemimpin Malaysia itu bercakap positif mengenai agama Yahudi dan mengiktiraf Israel sebagai 'teman bicara sah'.

"Malaysia secara formalnya merupakan negara Islam dan beberapa pendahulu Najib tidak mesra kepada Israel dan Yahudi," tulis akhbar itu.

Menurut The Times Of Israel, Najib mahu "fajar baru" dalam hubungan di antara umat Islam dan Yahudi.

"Sehubungan itu, mengambil kira pertempuran yang berlaku di Masjid Al-Aqsa, Baitulmaqdis pada sambutan Rosh Hashanah atau Tahun Baharu Yahudi dan serangan ke atas penganutnya tiga minggu lalu, saya meminta kerajaan Israel mematuhi prinsip etika tertinggi agama Yahudi, dan mesej utama kitab Taurat seperti rumusan pendeta abad pertama Sebelum Masihi (SM), Hillel," kata Najib di New York, Khamis lepas.

"Ketika diminta menjelaskan kandungan Taurat, beliau dirakam sebagai berkata: 'Bahawa apa yang menjadi kebencian bagimu, jangan lakukan terhadap sesamamu'.

"Pernyataan ini, yang dikenali secara sejagat dalam kalangan semua agama sebagai Aturan Emas, boleh menjadi pemangkin terhadap permulaan hubungan baharu antara umat Islam dan Yahudi," kata Najib.

The prime minister of Malaysia, appealing to Israel to tamp down Temple Mount tensions, quoted Jewish sage Hillel and called for a “new dawn” in Muslim-Jewish relations.

“Given the Rosh Hashanah violations of al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem and aggression against its worshipers three weeks ago, I call on the Israeli government to live up to Judaism’s highest ethical principles, and the essential message of the Torah as succinctly expressed by the first century B.C. sage Hillel,” said Najib Razak, addressing the United Nations General Assembly opening on Thursday.

“When asked to describe the Torah in a soundbite, [Hillel] said: ‘That which is hateful to you, don’t do to your fellow human being,’” Razak said. “This dictum, known universally in all religions as the Golden Rule, could herald the dawn of a much needed revised relationship between Muslims and Jews.”

Israel rejects charges that it is behind the tensions on the Temple Mount, known to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif and holy to both faiths. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, speaking not long before Razak, blamed Palestinians for inciting the recent tensions by misrepresenting Israeli actions.



On Friday protesters in Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur demonstrated against Israeli actions in the Temple Mount, Iran’s Fars news agency reported. Rally-goers waved Palestinian flags and placards calling to “Free Palestine.”

Since capturing the Temple Mount in the 1967 Six Day War Israel has observed a “status quo” that allows Jews to visit the mount, adjacent to the Western Wall, but not worship there. Palestinians claim Israel is allowing Jewish groups to enter the mount to worship; Israel says Palestinians at the site have been increasingly aggressive toward Jews who are merely visiting.

“Currently Israel has forced its authority over Islam’s third holiest site – in defiance of the jurisdiction of King Abdullah of Jordan, the lawful Custodian,” Razak said. “It is therefore Israel’s duty to facilitate Muslims from around the world to visit. For this is an aspiration that all devout Muslims harbor and pray to be able to realize in their lifetime.”

Despite Razak’s criticisms, it was notable for a Malaysian leader to speak positively about Judaism and to recognize Israel as a legitimate interlocutor. Malaysia is a formally Muslim state and some of Razak’s predecessors were hostile to Israel and to Jews ~ Time Of Israel
