I'm Sorry You Can't Comprehend My Genius

Malaysian PM Mahathir attempts to explain what he really meant in the Bangkok Post:

"In my speech I condemned all violence, even the suicide bombings, and I told all Muslims it's about time we stopped all these things and paused to think and do something that is much more productive," Mahathir told the Bangkok Post.

"That was the whole tone of my speech, but they picked up one sentence where I said the Jews control the world."

But just in case no one misses the point, Mahathir helpfully added:

"The reaction of the world shows that they [Jews] do control the world," he told the Post.

Mahathir is often described by Western leaders as a "moderate" in the Muslim world. Isn't that just peachy?
