PM Najib met Soros in New York

Steven Gan

Prime Minister Najib Razak had a private meeting with billionaire financier George Soros – the man seen by Umno faithful as enemy no 1 – in New York two years ago.

The hush-hush meeting, which was first revealed last week by Subang parliamentarian R Sivarasa during his    debate with Perkasa information chief Ruslan Kassim, was held at the luxury Plaza Hotel in Manhattan.

najib abdul razak in perth chogm 1Malaysiakini has confirmed the Najib-Soros meeting with a source who has direct knowledge of the event.

The prime minister’s meeting with Soros, who is accused of funding Malaysian NGOs to push for regime change, took place on Sept 27, 2010.

It is believed that at least one other top Umno leader was present at the get-together.

Najib, who became prime minister in 2009, made his maiden speech at the UN General Assembly in New York on the same day he met with the billionaire financier.

In his UN speech, Najib mooted a ‘global movement of the moderates’ to reclaim the agenda for peace and pragmatism.

On the sidelines of the general assembly, Najib also met with UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon and held talks with several heads of government.

Among those who accompanied Najib on that trip were his wife Rosmah Mansor, Foreign Minister Anifah Aman and Malaysian ambassador to the United States Jamaluddin Jarjis.

Umno’s whipping boy

The man whom Najib met has been one of Umno’s favourite whipping boys.

Soros, a controversial currency trader and philanthropist, was blamed for bringing financial ruin to Malaysia during the 1997-98 economic meltdown, and more recently, for seeking to oust BN by allegedly funding anti-government NGOs.

NONEOver the past few weeks, a gaggle of pro-government bloggers and Umno-ownedUtusan Malaysiahave blasted NGOs, including human rights group Suaram and polls reform movement Bersih, for receiving funding from Soros’ Open Society Foundations.

Malaysiakini, too, came into the line of fire over its links with MDLF, aninvestment fund that owns a 29 percent stake in the independent news website. MDLF raises capital from banks, governments and funding agencies, which included Soros’ foundation.

On Sunday, former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad joined the chorus by accusing Malaysiakini of working with Soros to engineer a regime change so as to “put his nominees as prime minister and ministers in the Malaysian government”.

“My view of Soros is that he is still a rogue currency trader and he compounds this evil by using the money to put his kind of people to rule the countries targeted by him. And Malaysia obviously is one of his targets,” Mahathir wrote in New Straits Times.

Connecting two disparate dots, he came to a wild conclusion: “A vote for the opposition is a vote for Soros.”

Rogue central bank

Ironically, when Mahathir was prime minister, Malaysia’s Bank Negara was known as a rogue central bank for dabbling in high-risk currency speculation – it lost a whopping RM5.7 billion to the likes of Soros in the early 1990s.

NONELast month,Malaysiakini revealed that Mahathir, despite his animosity with Soros, had written to the billionaire for his support to lend his name to the former premier’s Global Peace Forum project to outlaw war as a means to solve human conflicts.

According to international weekly Economist, politics in Malaysia has increasingly turned toxic in the run-up to the crucial 13th general election, with Umno and Umno-friendly media attacking any organisation deemed sympathetic to the opposition.

“All the old canards about these sorts of groups being in the pay of Zionists, America or George Soros, a foreign financier, have been trotted out,” it said in an article that was published earlier this week.

“It is not clear whether such slanders still impress Malaysia’s voters, especially its Muslims. They are certainly a sign of desperation.”

  4. Mahathir had forgotten that the Malays had been well educated since the day he stepped down as PM and they had been deceived and cheated by Mahathir’s NEP and UMNO’s propaganda of defending the Malay race and religion.

  8. That is the difference between Hinduism,Christianity & Islam .These Muslim nation have a phobia about the Jews , & this is God sent to the politicians as they can use this for their advantage to get votes during the election time.
    It is without a shadow of doubt that the Jews are any time better in all fields compared to others so what is there wrong if we can co exist with them and learn from them how to advance in our mental outlook so that we can give a better life for the citizens of the various communities of this planet.
    Please do not get me wrong to say that I support them 100 %,if you do not belief me just press any key on your internet just check how many Jews from the inception of of the Nobel prize are Jews .
    To take another example in Malaysia we say Selangor is the most advance state in Malaysia BUT LOOK RECENTLY THERE WERE REPORTS THAT SELANGOR IS GOING TO HAVE WATER PROBLEM COMMON ON LAH WE ARE IN A EQUATORIAL BELT THAT MEANS RAIN THROUGHOUT THE YEAR HOW COME SELANGOR IS GOING THROUGH THIS, THIS CLEARLY EXPLAINS THAT THE PREVIOUS GOVT SCREWED IT UP ,NOW LOOK AT ISRAEL I SAW THE OTHER DAY AT ON TV THAT IN THE DESERT ISRAEL GROWS LEAFY VEGETABLES.

    • There are Muslims and there other Muslims, so too with Malays, and there are Jews and there are Jews.

      First defect of rational thinking – 1 represents the rest. For Christians or Jews (Jesus was a Jew) they forget that he threw Jews out of the synagogue because they were doing business of money changing in the synagoguem place of wrship. Just as there were good Jew Kings, there were bad ones. As there are good Christians there are murderous ones who bombed the World Trade Tower on 911. And worst they blamed on bad people like Al Qaeda!

      The Zionist Israelis think that Israel was made to order for them just as the UMNO Malays think the same.

      Like this, ah, sure UMNO spend more money paying people to be stupid! lol
