Malaysian ex-PM Mahathir says Muslims 'have right to kill French'

Mahathir launched an extraordinary outburst on Twitter after an attack
in southern France saw three people killed

Kuala Lumpur (AFP)

Malaysia's former prime minister Mahathir Mohamad said Thursday that
Muslims had a right "to kill millions of French people", shortly after a
knife-wielding man launched a deadly attack in Nice.

Three people were killed at a church in the southern French city, with
the attacker slitting the throat of at least one of them, in what
authorities were treating as the latest jihadist attack to rock the country.

Shortly afterwards, Mahathir -- who was prime minister of
Muslim-majority Malaysia until his government collapsed in February --
launched an extraordinary outburst on Twitter.

Referring to the beheading of a French teacher who showed pupils
cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed, Mahathir said he did not approve of
that attack but that freedom of expression does not include "insulting
other people".

"Irrespective of the religion professed, angry people kill," said the
outspoken 95-year-old, who has in the past drawn controversy for remarks
attacking Jews and the LGBT community.

"The French in the course of their history has killed millions of
people. Many were Muslims. Muslims have a right to be angry and to kill
millions of French people for the massacres of the past."

Mahathir, who served as Malaysian premier twice for a total of 24 years,
said that French President Emmanuel Macron was "not showing that he is
civilised", adding he was "very primitive".

"The French should teach their people to respect other people's
feelings. Since you have blamed all Muslims and the Muslims' religion
for what was done by one angry person, the Muslims have a right to
punish the French.

"The boycott cannot compensate the wrongs committed by the French all
these years."

He made no direct reference to the Nice attack.

The beheading of the teacher, Samuel Paty, prompted Macron to promise a
crackdown on Islamic extremism.

But the move has inflamed tensions, with protests against France
erupting in several Muslim countries, with some urging a boycott of
French goods.
