Malaysia is Saudi Arabia of East

Reader comment on item: How the West Could Lose
in response to reader comment: A Peaceful Muslim Country (oh my)

Malaysia is Saudi Arabia of East. These guys are unrivaled in their zeal to subjugate or convert the Hindu, Buddhist, Chinese, or the original Malaysian population. Their atrocities on non-Muslims have been reported in the newspapers: some of which include preventing cremation of Hindus and forcing them to be buried (claiming falsely, they were Muslims, this was the subject of a weblog by Dr. Pipes last year or so), demolishing ancient Hindu temples, forcing non-Muslim women to wear hijab in public, etc.

Essentially, they want to beat Saudi Arabia in being a "good" Muslim nation. And to cite them as an example of a "moderate" and modern Islamic nation is ludicrous at best. They are racing towards back to the future of 7th century stone age Arabia. May be they have aspirations of replacing Saudi Arabia as the birth place of Islam???
