Dear Mahathir - pls answer these questions

From: "truth"

Mahathir is a fake Malay.
His father is an Indian Muslim who married a
Malay girl.
So by tradition, he should have been classified at
an Indian. Only a snake like him could have
wriggled his way into umno and then the leadership.

DR. Mahathir Mohamed is a MALAYSIAN BY BLOOD ,

Dr. Mahathir Mohamed got his Malay blood from his Malay
mother ,
just like the Jewish tradition of jewish recognisation by
maternal descent ,
the French President Sazorky is a Jew because his mother is a
Jew from Spain .

so DR. Mahathir Mohamed is a true MALAYSIAN ,

because Chinese in Malaysia have no MALAY BLOOD .
