Ex-Malaysian PM urges Muslim countries to sever ties with Israel

Kuala Lumpur, Dec 15, IRNA – Former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad urged Muslim countries to cut relations with the Zionist regime of Israel.

Mohamad made the remarks Friday in a rally held against US President Donald Trump's anti-Quds decision.

US president's Dec 6 announcement to recognize Beit-ul Moqaddas as the capital city of Israel has faced extensive criticisms all over the world even from the US allies.

Mohamad described President Trump as an international thug and murderer.

Protesters who were organized by Malaysian political parties gathered in front of US embassy in Kuala Lumpur to force Trump to retreat.

They insisted on the fact that ignoring Palestinian people's rights is a major threat to the global peace.

The protestors carried placards showing Holy Quds freedom and Palestine and chanted anti-US and anti-Zionist regime slogans.
