Malaysia's Mahathir urges gov't not to buy arms from US
Kuwaiti news agency quoted him as saying in a statement that the people should persuade the government to do so while local non-governmental organisations (NGOs) should also play their role by asking their counterparts in other countries to do likewise.

He added such a decision, which he described as "a small thing to the US", would not affect the world's only superpower immediately but over time, it would feel the pinch.
I think the biggest purchase directly from the US, is from our government which is planning to buy a new aircraft."

"If they buy from the US directly, they (the government) would provide cash to the Americans to manufacture arms for Israel to kill the Palestinians," he added.
