The Malaysian government-backed newspaper said in an editorial that foreign Jewish groups will try to use a current push for reform to interfere in the country.

"At a time when the drumbeats in the name of human rights are getting boisterous, it will give the best opportunity for pro-Jewish groups to interfere in any Muslim countries," the Utusan Malaysia daily said in an editorial Monday. "Muslims and Malaysians should not allow any party, especially the Jews, to discreetly interfere in the country’s administration."

"The success and prosperity of Malaysia as a model Islamic nation has created jealousy to a certain country and this is made worse by Malaysia’s firm stand in fighting against violence by the Jews in Palestine," the editorial continues. "The Jews will find ways to destroy our prosperity and well-being.

"We probably think that this is a misplaced concern, but we must not forget the fate of certain countries which have been victims of the hidden hands," it concludes.

The editorial does not provide evidence of a Jewish plot.

Malaysia has no diplomatic ties with Israel and supports the Palestinian cause.

Some 20,000 people marched in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur on July 9 demanding electoral reform.
