Western media is very consistent and systematic about their propaganda and projection to instil doubt and crafting the perception and conditioning the mind of Malaysians that Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak is the culprit of the 1MDB scandal and his administration days are numbered.

Can Najib Razak Survive 1MDB Scandal?

Najib Razak, Malaysia’s Prime Minister since 2009, is facing the greatest challenge of his leadership – and even the risk of criminal charges.
As we reported last week, Najib has been embroiled in the scandal surrounding the state investment fund 1MDB. The fund was already an embarrassment to him – not only has it run up $US11.6 billion in debts and attracted inquiries by four different institutions, from the auditor-general to the police, but Najib himself chairs the fund’s advisory board. But on top of that, last week he was alleged by the Wall Street Journal to have received almost $700 million of transfers from the fund into his personal bank accounts, much of it during an election campaign.
If it is proven that the funds did indeed go into an account bearing his name, it is difficult to see how Najib can survive. But even if it isn’t proven, the allegations have come at a very difficult time for Malaysia’s leader. The UMNO party, which he represents, is in a period of internal turmoil as it recognises that it no longer has an automatic right to expect to win every election, and wonders whether Najib is the right person to lead it in this newly competitive political environment. Malaysia’s economy is struggling, particularly in an era of falling commodity prices; the country is one of the few in Asia to be a net exporter of commodities.
And Malaysia’s elder statesman, Mahathir Mohamad, who led the country for 22 years and was something of a mentor to Najib, has turned against him. He has called for Najib to step down over the fund’s behaviour, and even beforehand was angry with Najib’s leadership. Later this week I will print an interview I conducted with Tun Dr Mahathir earlier this year which talks at length about his thoughts on Najib – which have not been positive for some time.
Worse, on Saturday the attorney general of Malaysia, Abdul Gani Patail, confirmed that he had received documents linking Najib to the investment fund, and is reported to feel there is the potential for them to lead to criminal charges if they turn out to be accurate. Najib himself has referred to the allegations as political sabotage, and has blamed Mahathir for orchestrating them.
Malaysia is a place where reputation matters enormously and where bad press sticks. Even if the attorney general does not feel the evidence is strong enough to prosecute, there is a very strong sense that Najib has been weakened regardless.

This very apparent concerted effort is very intriguing and it is being intensified similar to the combination in blitzkrieg raid on Hitler’s Wermacht post 1 September 1939 and Allied Forces carpet bombing as a precursor to the 6 June 1944 D-Day landings.
Like in our previous posting, the intended objective is rather quite clear.
Prime Minister Najib is up and rising into the world geo-political arena, moreover in his call for ‘moderation of interpretation and practice of Islam’ against the flavour of extremism by very minority pockets of Muslims who are causing detrimental global perception towards Islam and Muslims.
This extremism by these pockets of terrorists using very skewed interoperation of ultraconservative Islam has taken centre stage in many countries and compounded further with their sophisticated use of social media networks to grow support from common people.
Prime Minister Najib’s ‘Wasatiyyah’ agenda earned recognition by world leaders such as President Barack H. Obama and Prime Minister David Cameron.
This is the current global bogey man, in the current geo-political turmoil such as in Ukraine, Iraq, Yemen, Libya and the on going tug-of-war game in South China Sea.
The fact that the Darling-of-the-West Anwar Ibrahim whose hopes of the Neo Con Jews to take the reign of the nation is exhausted as he is incarcerated and they don’t actually have a substitute nor a succession plan, the political assassination of Prime Minister Najib is paramount.
Prime Minister Najib administration now chairs the Association of South East Asian Nation (ASEAN) and sits as a non permanent member of the United Nations Security Council.
It is quite clear that it is imperative for the New Con Jews act to ensure that an upcoming global leader like Prime Minister Najib could be subdued to their agenda or otherwise, politically eliminate him.
It is intriguing that Prime Minister Najib and his administration were never allowed any opportunity and/or room to clear all the doubts created and conditioned in the mind of Malaysians, especially through Sarawak Report and all supporting media.
The Agenda, is very much working like swiss made time pieces regardless the attacks and unsubstantiated allegations are based on distorted and fabricated information and lies.
In time, the truth would prevail and the righteous would be exonerated. Then again, the intensity of the battering ram could break down the fort gates or even walls.
