KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 22 (Bernama) -- PAS Spiritual Leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat has reiterated that the party will never recognise "the forbidden state of Israel".
He said it is an appropriate stand considering that Israel came about by way of the denial of the rights of Muslims and deprivation of the rights of the Palestinian people.
It is forbidden to accept the existence of Israel, all the more when the Israeli authorities engage in the endless torture and killing of the Palestinian people, including children, women and the elderly, he said in a statement published on the party's website, www.pas.org.my.
"We leave it to (Opposition Leader) Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to accept this stand of PAS," he said.
Nik Aziz's statement comes in the wake of his meeting with Anwar, who is Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor, over the latter's statement expressing support for "all efforts to protect the security of the state of Israel".
tunku : it is obvious that anwar did made the statement of “I support all efforts to protect the security of the state of Israel”.he is not suing WSJ, he is not suing local media as they all did report the truth.now that nik aziz had confirmed it too by saying that they leave it to anwar to accept the stand of pas. this shows clearly he did mean what he said. the question here now is pas. why is pas still with anwar? pas said they will never recognize the state of israel but still working hand in hand with anwar. if anwar becomes the pm and made a policy to protect the security of israel what can pas do with less majority of members in the government? this clearly shows that pas is together with anwar in whatsoever.
