Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad OIC speech

There has been a lot of press today over a speech given by Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad at the opening of the tenth session of the Islamic Summit Conference. The Prime Minister’s office has the full speech available online. While the world media has focused on Dr. Mahathir Mohamad’s comments regarding the Jews, in a larger context his speech is about the power of the Islamic world today and the abilities each of them know they are capable of. He uses the issue of Palestine as an world problem to unify his group and something that can be solved in unison. Most everyone feels hard done by, but it is tough to step back, gather your thoughts, and reapproach your problems.
