The Decline of a False Martyr
By Roy Thinnes
Is Anwar Ibrahim simply a prisoner of his passions, to the extent that they override his sense of self-preservation?
Or, more intriguingly, did Anwar Ibrahim calculate that a second trial would redound to his long-term political benefit, as the first one assuredly did?
Anwar co-founded the IIIT nearly three decades ago as a Muslim-Brotherhood front organization in the United States.
Anwar’s IIIT has been named in Muslim Brotherhood documents seized by the FBI as a key Islamic-radical front organization in the United States.
Anwar’s IIIT is directly responsible for coining and promulgating the word “Islamophobia” as a tactic to discredit critics of radical Islam.
Anwar apparently remains on the board of the IIIT.
Anwar may have benefitted from Muslim-Brotherhood funding, possibly routed via Turkish sources. (This may, if confirmed, explain Anwar’s decision to flee to the Turkish Embassy in Kuala Lumpus when his most recent indictment was announced.)
Anwar may have benefitted from funding sources within Saudi Arabia, by way of his Muslim Brotherhood connections.
