In the contemporary world, the Palestinian Issue still remains explosive and unresolved. Its resolution is an urgent necessity as well as a major international concern. This is particularly so to all Muslims who view it not merely as a regional or an Arab problem, but more importantly a paramount religious issue. This sentiment is indeed shared by Malaysia. This book examines the Malaysian government’s attitude and commitment to the Ummatic cause as reflected in its foreign policy, with particular reference to the Palestinian Issue. Emphasis is given to the eras of the four Prime Ministers since independence in1957 up to 1989. It also in a way identifies whether there had been any radical change in the Premiers’ attitude and commitment to the Palestinian cause. This book suggests that Malaysia, though an integral part of the Islamic Ummah, was largely motivated in its commitment to the Palestinian cause by political and pragmatic considerations. At the end, this book also proposes ways and means to enhance the commitment of the Malaysian government and people towards the Palestinian struggle. This book may become a reference work for preliminary documentation of Malaysians’ views and attitude, as well as the government’s role and policies towards the Palestinian Issue. Therefore, this book will be of considerable use to students, scholars as well as policy makers in the field of International Relations, Foreign Policy, Human Rights and Middle East Issues. It will also be of equal benefit to Muslims all over the world as it may kindle and enlighten the minds of the Muslims, wherever they might be, on the issue of Human Rights, especially with regard to the Palestinian Issue.
