The on-going presidential election in this tiny Muslim island nation off coast India has historic importance for the Zionist entity. So much so, that even the Iran-chasing P5+1 international policemen have jumped into the arena.
“Diplomats from P 5 + 1 (U.S., U.K., Russia, France and China plus Germany) besides neighbours Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, in addition to Australia felt India must continue taking the lead in pushing Maldives towards holding elections in a way that there is no power vacuum,” reported Indian daily Hindu on October 20, 2013.
The western capitals are worried that any delay in the completion of the election by November 11 could destroy the chances of the pro-Israel former president Mohamed Nasheed’s re-election. Nasheed was booted out by mass protests last year.
India’s Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh, who visited Male last week, failed to convince the care-taker president Mohammed Waheed Hassan Manik and his cabinet to hold the election as per schedule. Last year, both the US and India had recognized Waheed government. But, it turned out, Waheed refused to follow Nasheed’s pro-USrael policies in the Middle East. So, it became necessary to bring an anti-Muslim slavish regime.
Former President Mohamed Nasheed and the Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) have called for President Dr Mohamed Waheed to resign, allowing a transitional government under the Speaker of Parliament to oversee elections.
The government has asked the Elections Commission to reschedule a third attempt at elections next week on November 26, however Elections Commissioner Fuwad Thowfeek said it would take at least 21 days to re-register the tens of thousands of voters returning home after the Eid holidays.
President Dr Mohamed Waheed in an interview on Saturday, claimed that postponement of election is in the intersts of the country. He also stated that he was not interested in his re-election as country’s future president.
The diplomatic relations between Maldives and the Zionist entity were established in 1965 – but severed by the president Maumoon Abdul Gayoom in 1980 who after deposing Sultan Mohamed Farid I, declared the Island nation as a republic. The links were re-established on September 25, 2009 by the new president Mohamed Nasheed. Israeli military officials were reinvited to train Maldives’ security agencies. In 2010, Islamic group protested against the arrival of Israeli surgeons to work at the government run Indhra Gandhi hospital. They claimed Israeli doctors are notorious in organ harvesting for Israel.
The Islamic Republic of Maldives is made up of a chain of 1200 tiny islands, most of them inhibited. With its abundant sealife and sandy beaches, The Maldives is portrayed by travel companies as a tropical paradise. The economy revolves around tourism, and scores of islands have been developed for the top end of the tourist market.
Aside from the island capital Male, outsiders are only permitted onto inhabited islands for brief visits, thereby limiting their impact on traditional Muslim communities.
