So the meddler Mr Malott is threatening to sue.
If there is anybody who should be sued for libel or slander, it should be the meddler himself, for having maligned ALL Malaysians. His commentary headlined "The Price of Malaysia's Racism" is incontrovertible proof. It is an affront and demeans Malaysians.
I do not know whether he is still employed in the diplomatic service because if he was, his boss Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton and the US Govt, begs to differ.
Clinton Praises Religious Tolerance in Malaysia
"Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is praising Malaysia’s commitment to religious tolerance as she visits the Muslim-majority country."
referenced from a joint press conference, the actual quote reads:
"We already have a strong partnership based on common values like respect for cultural diversity, pluralism, religious tolerance, along with our very important trade, business, and investment ties. We know that Malaysia is a leader in this region, and as I said earlier in the event at ISTAC, increasingly being looked to as both a thought leader and a model globally.
The United States wholeheartedly endorses Prime Minister Najib’s call to promote religious moderation."
Read in another context, His Ex-cellency's comment could be construed to be inciting racial hatred.
