Anwar Malek could be talking about Malaysia in this interview!

"Arabs are afflicted by fantasies and obsolete and false bravado!"

In the video below, please listen to Anwar Malek, if you understand Arabic, or read the English subtitles if you do not; but whichever the case read the body language.

Anwar Malek, the Algerian author, bravely speaks the truth, that is beyond doubt, but his opinion will probably not have been well received by some in Pan Arabia.

But, the truth always hurts the most!

In my opinion a lot of what Anwar Malek said holds true for Malaysia too, but of course many in Malaysia, such as the arrogant, the stubborn, the misguided, the unthinking, the selfish, the blinkered and the misinformed will have their head in the sand and / or be wearing the Emperor's New Clothes so they will not admit this fact! They like the Arabs are afflicted by fantasies and living in cloud cookooland !!!

This interview was broadcast on Al-Jazeera TV, Qatar on 3rd March 2009

Hoc tempore obsequium amicos, veritas odium parit

These days friends are won through flattery, the truth gives birth to hate
