Context: It is disgraceful that you should be used by adults for the purpose of trying to shame us... The timber industry helps hundreds of thousands of poor people in Malaysia. Are they supposed to remain poor because you want to study tropical animals? Is your study more important than filling the stomachs of poor people? Are Malaysians expected to lose millions of pounds so that you can study animals? [... ] I hope you will tell the adults who made use of you to learn all the facts. They should not be too arrogant and know how best to run a country… - Letter to Darrel Abercrombie in 1987, quoted at Free Malaysia Today http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/opinion/2013/04/19/a-tale-of-two-ms-mahathir-and-margaret/

„I believe that the country should have a strong government but not too strong. A two-thirds majority like I enjoyed when I was prime minister is sufficient but a 90% majority is too strong.“

And so [people who call themselves] "Muslims" kill despite the injunction of their religion against killing especially of innocent people.
