"Letter" to Prime Minister of Israel

1. There is a letter being circulated purporting to be from me when I was Prime Minister, to Ehud Barak, Prime Minister of Israel congratulating him on his appointment and requesting for the "Clinton Fund", for "the purpose of withstanding the onslaught of Islamic Fundamentalist in Malaysia".

2. This letter is not from me or from my office. Firstly, the font used is not the same as the type in all my letters from the Prime Minister's office.

3. The Malaysian Coat of Arms at the top is not similar to the one on all my letters from the Prime Minister's office.

4. The address at the side of the Coat of Arms is not the same as on my official paper. Often no address is printed, only "Prime Minister Malaysia" on the top right-hand corner.

5. The contents of the letter is totally different from the one I sent to Ehud Barak. Unfortunately, the Government of Abdullah Ahmad Badawi refuses permission to reproduce my letters to Israeli Prime Ministers condemning them for their oppression of the Palestinians. This action by the Abdullah Government will lend credence to the letter that is being circulated.

6. I deny categorically that the letter which is being circulated with annotation "Sumbangan kakitangan JPM untuk Rakyat Malaysia" originated from me. This is the kind of dirty tricks that my detractors have to resort to because they have found nothing to blacken my name with.
