Islam is Islam even when fried in saffron flavored butter.
Malaysian PM tells ruling party it must be brave like ISIL: report
Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak is under fire for recent comments in which he reportedly told his ruling party that it would be stronger if members were more brave, like militants with the al Qaeda splinter group Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
“For example, when someone dares to fight to their death, they can even defeat a much bigger team,” he is quoted as saying by the Malay Mail Online.
“As proof — whether we agree or not is another matter — the group ISIL, with the strength of just 1,300 people, can defeat an Iraqi army of 30,000 soldiers, until four, five generals with three, four stars run for their lives, jump out the window at night. Why? Because they are afraid of those who are brave.”
The comments received swift criticism from opposition leaders.
