Malaysia’s Mahathir Mohamad on West vs ISIL

Veteran politician blasts Western policy in the Middle East and warns air strikes risk worsening Syria crisis.

"It’s going to make things worse because other Arabs – innocent Arabs – are going to be killed. Since they can’t do anything, they sympathise with ISIL. In time, ISIL will come up with other horrible things, or there may be other groups. Frustrated, unable to defeat their enemies, they will do what they can do. And what they can do is described by us as terrorism. But to me bombing people from the air is also terrorism. Those who are waiting for the bombs to fall, they are also terrorised."
