Wide support at conference for Mahathir's anti-Semitism

Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad launched an anti-Semitic tirade at the meeting of the OIC... and every leader there applauded it:
All 57 leaders at a Conference of Islamic Nations summit applauded the comments... Among them were several key figures in the post-September 11 world, including Ms Megawati [the Indonesian president]; the Afghan President, Hamid Karzai; President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan and Crown Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.
There's no need to talk about "context" or anything else here, as Mahathir's spokespeople are doing. His speech contains an clear "Jewish conspiracy" theme. Whatever else was or was not in the speech cannot explain away or justify this viewpoint. This was not criticism of Israel or its policies.

It is sad to see that none of these leaders could be bothered to exercise even a little critical thought over these stupid comments.
