“Dirty Tricks” Covert Op? Armed Phillippines Based Islamists Land on Beaches of North Borneo Ahead of Malaysian Elections

Washington Backed Anwar, Sabah and Western Sponsorship of Terrorism

 Coincidence? West’s use of terrorism raises concerns latest violence in Sabah is linked to Wall Street’s campaign to install Anwar Ibrahim as head of Malaysia.

Disturbing and bizarre reports of Philippine-based armed “Islamist” militants landing on the beaches of Malaysia’s state of Sabah, directly ahead of national elections has raised both concerns and suspicions regarding the Malaysian opposition’s involvement, and that of its Western sponsors. The Star/Asia News Network reported in an article titled, “Najib: Govt to investigate claims of Opposition instigating Sulu Sultanate to reclaim Sabah,” that:

The Prime Minister has directed Malaysian intelligence to investigate claims that the Opposition was among parties responsible in instigating the heir of the Sulu Sultanate to reclaim Sabah.

Anwar Ibrahim, head of Malaysia’s opposition coalition, which includes the Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS), has spent a lifetime in the service of Western interests. Anwar Ibrahim was Chairman of the Development Committee of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) in 1998, held lecturing positions at the School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University, was a consultant to the World Bank, and a panelist at the Neo-Con lined National Endowment for Democracy’s “Democracy Award” and a panelist at a NED donation ceremony – the very same US organization whose subsidiaries are funding and supporting Bersih, a faux-pro-democracy Western-fundedstreet movement that in fact was created by, and in the service of Anwar Ibrahim’s political ambitions.

Image: Sabah state, Malaysia (right in red) is host of a bizarre invasion by militants based in the Philippines, just months ahead of Malaysia’s general elections. Because Malaysia’s opposition is overtly supported by Wall Street, and because of the West’s liberal use of global terrorism as a geopolitical tool, many suspect Anwar Ibrahim’s opposition party is at least partly responsible for instigating the militant incursion. 

Anwar Ibrahim’s affiliations with Malaysian “Islamists,” and his Western backers’ habitual support for terrorism internationally as a geopolitical tool, raises the possibility that his opposition movement is complicit in the conveniently timed militant destabilization Malaysia now faces, only months before 2013’s general elections.

While Wall Street props up Anwar Ibrahim, his political coalition, and his street front, Bersih, it is funding and arming hardcore Al Qaeda terrorists from Libya and Syria, to Iran and Pakistan. Recent announcements by the US and UK that they will be funding to the tune of millions, Syrian “opposition leader” Moaz al-Khatib who openly collaborates with, embraces, and adamantly defends Al Qaeda’s Syrian franchise al-Nusra, is indicative of a global, systematic state-sponsorship of terrorism by the West. Similar support was given to the political fronts of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LFIG) in Libya, who is in fact sending fighters, cash, and heavy weapons into Syria via NATO-member Turkey.Anwar Ibrahim and his political opposition party’s ties to militant terrorists are being investigated, but Malaysia, and other nations in Southeast Asia must be ever vigilant of a West who props up political parties under the guise of “democracy promotion,” while funding and arming terrorists, criminal cartels, and notorious human rights abusers, many times worse than the political parties they seek to subvert.
