Malaysia has seen an economic boom over the past few decades, as a majority of the people have a higher standard of living in recent years. The capital Kuala Lumpur, has a dense urban cityscape that would rival any city in the United States, as well as Europe, with its high-end shopping centers, condos and private schools. According to a census almost two-thirds of the population is Muslim. The average household income has nearly doubled since 1990. Like most places these days, there is a great divide among more affluent Malaysians and those who are poverty-stricken.
Malaysia is also rich with ’massive deposits of oil’ and is said to be one of the largest non-OPEC oil exporters in the world. This makes it an attractive place for the CIA and other clandestine activity to take place, as the West has been known to pressurize nations when seeking their precious natural resources.
It has been said that Western intelligence agencies allegedly controlled Islamists and pro-democracy activists in Malaysia, particularly during the coup in Egypt. This was evident in a large protest that took place in Kuala Lumpur in 2011.

In 2003 Malaysia’s former prime minister, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, named Israel as “the enemy allied with most powerful nations,” during a 57-nation Islamic summit. The Malaysian leader further explained his beliefs about Israeli control, while also condemning the violence among Muslims:
Mahathir had often blamed Israel and the United States for fueling violence in the Arab world.
In the middle of the 97-98 Asian financial crisis, Mahathir claimed there was a Western capitalist conspiracy to keep Malaysia under control, as the currency attack revealed the involvement of billionaire investor, Bilderberg consolidator and hedge-fund manager George Soros, as the Malaysian ringgit lost 15% over a two month period. Mahathir lashed out against Western meddling in the aftermath of the losses his country accrued:
“We never believe in applying pressure on people. Trying to starve a whole nation in order to force its government to behave, that is not our idea. If you want to act against the government, you act against the government…. You have to show them that the way others do things can bring benefits to the country without in any way undermining their authority.”

It has been reported that a security firm called Asiasoft has been involved in updating Malaysia’s police systems. Two of the company’s directors are both from Israel, Izhak David Nakarand Ido Schechter. Nakar is stated to have won an Israeli defense award.
Well-known researcher Tony Cartalucci observed the Western fallout over the recent elections in Malaysia during 2013:
“Despite the US mobilizing the summation of its media power and pouring millions of dollars into the opposition party, including the creation and perpetuation of fake-NGOs such as Bersih and the Merdeka Center, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak sailed to a comfortable victory in this year’s general elections. The cheap veneer has begun peeling away from America’s “democracy promotion” racket, leaving its proxies exposed and frantic, and America’s hegemonic ambitions across Asia in serious question.”
Its clear from this analysis, that things didn’t go as planned for United States and its allies wthin Malaysia, as the unsettling elections could provide the impetus for some sort of unsavoryGladio-tension from Western backed intelligence agencies.
