Condemnation for ‘antisemitic’ Malaysian Prime Minister 

Board of Deputies Senior Vice President Sheila Gewolb has condemned Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad for his latest antisemitic outburst.

Sheila said: “Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad is a purveyor of antisemitic and antiquated tropes. While the rest of Malaysia is moving forward, he makes it look like the country is moving backward, which is a great pity. We urge our Government to treat him accordingly and to raise concerns at an official level.”
