“Just imagine...the Asian edition of the Wall Street Journal published (Anwar’s statement saying) ‘I support all the efforts to protect the security of the state of Israel’,” said Kepala Batas Umno chief Datuk Seri Reezal Naina when debating the motion supporting the president’s policy speech at the 2012 Umno General Assembly here today.

“All efforts? Is killing innocent Palestinians and taking their land a part of that all efforts?” said Reezal who also represented Umno Youth.

He said even the American President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron had never issued such a supportive statement for Israel.

Reezal said he also agreed with Umno President Datuk Seri Najib Razak who described the opposition leader as a political chameleon.

On PAS’s move to pray for the destruction of Umno and Barisan Nasional, Reezal said it was just so wrong.

“Why should they pray for the destruction of Umno, how can they label Umno  as apostate and (Umno members and supporters) will not go to heaven?” he said.

While condemning the PAS spiritual leader for supporting and endorsing the prayer, Reezal said the leader was the number one deviator.  — Bernama
