Matthias Chang served as the political secretary to former Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.
MEET MATTHIAS CHANG:
Malaysia’s No-Nonsense Defender of American (and Malaysian) Independence from the New World Order:
In recent years, attorney Matthias Chang, one of the best-known trial lawyers in Malaysia, has emerged as a hotly controversial and always-outspoken figure in the political affairs of that Southeast Asian republic.
Although a Christian, educated though his childhood years and on through law school in England, Chang is of Chinese descent in a country which is a remarkable ethnic amalgam of native Malays, diverse Chinese elements, as well as a considerable number of Indians (Christian and Muslim alike) and many, many other ethnicities.
Having established himself as a well-known and highly successful attorney and entrepreneur, Chang entered public service for the first time in the closing years of the 23-year-reign of “The Father of Modern Malaysia,” Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, appointed by Mahathir to serve in the pivotal post as Mahathir’s Political Secretary.
Today, following Mahathir’s retire- ment in 2003, Chang continues to serve as a confidant and advisor to the ex-Prime Minister who remains a major force not only in Malaysia but throughout South- east Asia and, indeed, the entire Muslim world, reaching every corner of the planet.
A no-holds-barred critic of Zionism and global imperialism, like Dr. Mahathir himself, Chang is well-versed in American history and political affairs and is a fervent admirer of the real American tradition, not the distorted and twisted form of “Americanism” being promoted by the likes of George W. Bush and his neo-conservative handlers and their allies in Israel.
With the publication of his first book, FUTURE FASTFORWARD, Malaysian attorney and diplomat Matthias Chang unquestionably established him-self as a front-line geopolitical strategist in the fight to derail the forces of global imperialism that are generally known as “The New World Order.” American Free Press had the distinct honor of releasing the first-ever American edition of that book, which had already been a best-seller in Chang’s native land.
Matthias Chang Has a Message for You:
‘All Nations Must Unite Against the New World Order’
A MESSAGE FOR AMERICA
The Address to American Patriots at the 2006 TBR-AFP Conference in Washington D.C.
Patriots gathered here today, it is with much regret that I cannot be
with you in this historic city of America to participate in this
landmark forum. But I know that when Michael Collins Piper reads out my
message to you, he will convey my affections for the American Free Press, TBR and
my heartfelt thanks to Mr. Carto for his invitation and my admiration
for his resilience in ensuring that the true voice of America is
heard, not only in America, but throughout the world. Long may he and
the American Free Press and The Barnes Review continue publishing. I am also confident that Mike will also convey to you my love for America and the American people.
On receiving the invitation from Mr. Carto, I could not help but cast my mind to the Farewell Address of
George Washington in 1796. I have read it so many times, and on each
and every occasion, I found his counsel and wisdom more relevant and
appropriate than ever.
As we gathered here, in the city named after him, it may be useful for us to recall just what this great American said.
“I shall carry it with me to my grave, as a strong incitement to
unceasing vows that heaven may continue to you the choicest tokens of
beneficence; that your union and brotherly affection may be perpetual;
that the free constitution, which is the work of your hands, may be
sacredly maintained; that its administration in every department may be
stamped with wisdom and virtue; that in fine, the happiness of these
states, under the auspices of liberty, may be made complete by so
careful a preservation and so prudent a use of this blessing as will
acquire to them the glory of recommending it to the applause, the
affection, and adoption of every nation which is yet a stranger to it.
We, in Malaysia are no stranger to the goodness of America and your
free Constitution. Strange as it may sound, your Constitution has
inspired a generation of freedom fighters in the third world following
World War II and continues to inspire people throughout the world even
as the United States is waging wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and
threatening insane nuclear strikes against Iran and Syria.
President Bush got it so wrong when he asked, “Why do they hate us?”
We don’t hate America and the American people, America is not our enemy.
The Constitution and the Declaration of Independence shall always be a
beacon of hope for those who are oppressed. What has disappointed us
and continues to dismay the victims of war is that essentially, since
World War II, each and every U.S. administration has in one way or
another betrayed the U.S. Constitution and the exhortations of
President George Washington.
I seek your indulgence to consider:
How did we, the people of the third world and our lands become the
strategic interest of the United States? Why should our resources be
controlled by U.S. multinational corporations? Why must we be made
cannon-fodder for the Zionist Global Agenda?
Why must Islam and its 1.6 billion adherents be demonized?
In the present circumstances, are we, the people of the third world,
not entitled to question the motives of your government when we see
George Washington’s counsel totally ignored:
“Observe good faith and justice toward all nations; cultivate peace and
harmony with all. Religion and morality enjoin this conduct; and it
can be that good policy does not equally enjoin it? It will be worthy
of a free, enlightened, and at no distant period, a great nation, to
give to mankind the magnanimous and too novel example of a people
always guided by an exalted justice and benevolence.”
Uncensored images on the disaster in Iraq must shock most of you. Just
imagine what it is like to be on the receiving end, day-in, day-out,
of laser guided bombs, cluster bombs, phosphorous bombs, senseless
killings by death squads and tortures such as those in Abu Ghraib and
But death does not discriminate, it kills all and sundry. Should not
the body bags bringing home brave young men and women and those maimed
for life move us to question the morality of policies that are grounded
on the principles that might is right and wars are legitimate means to
America lost over 50,000 of her bravest and most loyal in the quagmire
of Vietnam. Over 2,500 have been slaughtered, and tens of thousands
crippled for life in the Iraq debacle. And more will die in the years
How many more lives must be sacrificed before we wake up to the folly
of the policies of the Zionist-inspired neo-conservatives?
How many more parents, wives and children must suffer the dreaded knock
on the front door, not to welcome a visitor, but to receive the
confirmation of the death of a beloved family member?
I am not ashamed to admit in front of you that when I first saw the
brutally deformed babies in the pediatric wards of various hospitals in
Iraq – the result of depleted uranium radiation – and the wanton
destruction and pain, anguish ripped through my guts and, as tears
welled in my eyes, I prayed and prayed for strength to live through
that horrifying day. And I vowed on that day that we must campaign to
stop the killings.
Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, in the Perdana Global Peace Conference in
December 2005, called on the world to criminalize war. If murder is a
crime during peacetime in our society, killing in time of war is also a
crime. If we are civilized, war cannot be an option in the settlement
of disputes between nations.
I plead before you, the good people of America, that you must reclaim
America from the clutches of the Zionist-inspired neo-conservatives. It
is only Americans who can reclaim America and her Constitution. It is
only Americans who can execute the plan laid down by George Washington
who counselled us:
“In the execution of such a plan, nothing is more essential than that
permanent inveterate antipathies against particular nations, and
passionate attachments for others, should be excluded; and that, in
place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be
cultivated. The nation which indulges toward another habitual hatred or
a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its
animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it
astray from its duty and its interest.
“Antipathy in one nation against another disposes each more readily to
offer insult and injury … when accidental or trifling occasions of
dispute occur … the peace often, sometimes perhaps liberty, of nations,
has been the victim.
“So likewise, a passionate attachment of one nation for another
produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favourite nation,
facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases
where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the
enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the
quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or
The passionate attachment for Israel, more so in recent times, has
brought untold suffering not only to the world but to America as well.
It cannot be right for America to abandon her sacred “duty and
interest” just so that Zionist Israel can be the regional hegemon in
the Middle East. Not satisfied with the vision of Israel’s
forefathers, Ariel Sharon declared that Greater Israel should extend
from Mauritania to Afghanistan, and not from the Nile to the Euphrates.
And so the killing, the heinous and barbaric massacre of the innocents
World War IV has started. Another generation of brave young Americans
will be slaughtered, denied the right to a full and rewarding life, the
sacrificial lamb before the Zionist altar.
Norman Podheretz cannot be speaking as an American patriot when he declared in an article published in Commentary, a journal of the Zionist neo-cons that:
“Iraq is only the second front … the second scene, so to speak, of the
first act of a five act play. In World War II and then in World War
III, we persisted in spite of impatience, discouragement and opposition
for as long as it took to win, and this is exactly what we have been
called to do today in World War IV.”
Echoing the above sentiments, Dr. Earl Tilford, professor of history
and a fellow of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies wrote in
“World War IV is a total war on a global scale. World War IV seems
complex but keep in mind during World War III (the Cold War) while
American forces fought North Vietnamese regulars and National
Liberation Front (Vietcong) guerillas in South Vietnam, we also fought
the Pathet Lao in Laos and Khmer Rouge in Cambodia.
“From Greece and Yugoslavia to Korea and Vietnam and the Caribbean and
jungles of South America, the Cold War involved a large number of
nations and groups … The ‘War on Terror’ is no less complicated and
“This is World War IV. Forget the sleazy sickness of Abu Ghraib. Stop
mouthing meaningless slogans like ‘Bush Lied, Soldiers Died’. Steel
yourselves for a long bloody war. This is a war we must not lose.”
This cannot be America’s agenda.
This cannot be American that I know and admire.
This cannot be the America of the American Free Press, The Barnes Review, The Spotlight, and the truth seekers that I have long admired, Harry
Elmer Barnes, Willis Carto, Michael Collins Piper, Christopher
Petherick, Eustace Mullins (whose life-long persecution by the Police
State is a disgrace to the Constitution), Col. Donn de Grand Pre and
I have no doubts that this is a Zionist agenda. Are not the Zionists
fostering the “illusion of an imaginary common interest” when the
Project for the New American Century declares:
“No one should doubt that the United States and Israel share a common
enemy. We are both targets of what you have correctly called the ‘Axis
of Evil’. Israel is targeted in part because it is our friend and in
part because it is an island of liberal democratic principles …
American principles – in a sea of tyranny, intolerance, and hatred …
Israel’s fight against terrorism is our fight. Israel’s victory is an
important part of our victory. For reasons both moral and strategic, we
need to stand with Israel in its fight against terrorism.”
Dear good people of America, I plead once again for “good faith and
justice”, that George Washington’s America be reclaimed so that this
great nation can take its rightful place as the center for peace and
harmony with all, that Christianity and morality enjoin this conduct.
We stand at the crossroad and as Mark Twain said, “each man must for
himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, which course is
patriotic and which isn’t. We cannot shirk this and be a man (or
woman). To decide against your conviction is to be an unqualified and
inexcusable traitor, both to yourself and to your country; let me label
you as they may.”
I have faith in the goodness and morality of America, of his great
nation to do what is right. The peace and freedom loving peoples of the
world await your decision.
I have faith and the conviction that this gathering of true American
patriots will decide correctly and reclaim George Washington’s America
from the Zionist neocons.
Wishing all of you every success in your deliberations. And I thank you for accepting this message from Malaysia.
