"Human rights .. should be applied without selectivity or discrimination. Why is that when we discriminate against gender it is called sexism; when African Americans are criticized and vilified, it is called racism; when the same is done to the Jews, people called it Anti-Semitism, and laws are legislated to prosecute the perpetrators. But why is it when Muslims are stigmatized and defamed, it is defended as "freedom of expression"?" - Anifah Aman, Malaysia's Foreign Minister, during the General Debate of the 67th Session of the UN General Assembly
Tun Dr M never minced words when he spoke up against the West's discrimination against Muslims at UN assemblies. Back then, we had Razali Ismail, the very able diplomat and Dr M's special envoy, to also say it as it is. Anifah Aman continues the Malaysian tradition of not being afraid to stand up against double-standards (and double-speak). Malaysians should be extremely (not moderately) proud.
