Ex-Malaysian premier still says 9/11 inside job

(PressTV)
– Malaysia’s Mahathir Mohamad has once again stated that the September
11 attacks were a staged event, rejecting claims that his comments are a
publicity stunt.

“What do I
gain from a publicity stunt? I am merely going by a public statement. I
am not going to be a Prime Minister anymore unless you (pointing to a
journalist) want me to …” the former Malaysian prime minister told
reporters on Friday.

After watching
a three-hour video of the attack on the World Trade Center buildings,
Mohamad, had suggested earlier in his blog that the twin towers had
collapsed “demolition style.”

Later on Friday, Mahathir also called on local television stations to show the three-hour video.

“It sounds
logical to me. Until today, you cannot even find scraps of the plane
that crashed into the World Trade Centre and there is no picture of the
other plane, which was supposed to crash.”

“The way the
tower came crashing down was also funny. People who saw it were also not
ordinary people. They were professional engineers and what they say is
quite credible.”

“I wish some
television stations would consent to show the video as it is not long
and only three hours. You can then see what I saw.”

Mahathir also
said some people were afraid of saying anything critical about the
governments of powerful countries or accusing them of doing something
wrong.

“But the government of powerful countries said lies to go to war,” he added

“I have great
respect for the Arabs but for them to hijack four planes is not very
Arab. Just imagine the amount of planning that would be involved.”

Rejecting
claims that he was being insensitive to the victims, Mahathir stressed
that he was “being more sensitive to the victims” as he was saying the
attacks were carried out “deliberately.”

The former
Malaysian prime minister also said that his views about how 9/11/2001
attacks were carried out would not affect Malaysia’s chances of
attracting foreign investment.

“I have said
this many times even when I was the prime minister. But we still have
the foreign direct investment. However, we cannot rely on foreign direct
investments alone. We must build on our own system,” he said.

Mahathir made
the comments at a debut held for a book titled Civilizations, Nomadic
Migrations, Empires and The Trail of Islam, at the Islamic Arts Museum
in Kuala Lumpur.

The book which entails the history of mankind, origin and commonality of major religions, is authored by Syed Salem Albukhary.
