Suaram attacks ‘driven by Jewish-linked company’


SUBMARINE TROUBLES: Malaysia's decision to go with France's DCNS angered rival firm, says former aide

KUALA LUMPUR: SUARAM'S recent attacks on French naval firm DCNS, the maker of Scorpene submarines, are now said to be driven by a rival Jewish-linked submarine maker in the West.

  Anuar Shaari, the former aide to opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, said the company was angered by Malaysia's decision to buy submarines from DCNS rather than from a company owned by Jews.

  "We know the American defence industry is strongly linked to the Jewish community, which has given funds to both Suaram and online news portal Malaysiakini.

  "The grants were given for the same purpose, that is, to stop countries from buying defence assets from France out of fear of being attacked, whether politically or otherwise.

  "I'd like to know why the members of Suaram readily accepted the funds to become the pawn of the Jews?

  "We know that this group (Jews) do not give without expecting something in return," he told Berita Harian in a statement recently.

  In 2009, Suaram filed a complaint in the French courts alleging government corruption in the multibillion ringgit purchase of Scorpene submarines.  

 The organisation has since been reported to have received foreign funding since 2005, including from groups linked to foreign currency speculator George Soros.

One of the Scorpene submarines bought from French naval firm DCNS.
