COMMENT: In FTR #790 [3], we discussed the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. A recent Daily Mail story reinforces the investigative focus on the plane’s pilot–Zaharie Shah. It also reinforces the fact that Shah was a follower of Anwar Ibrahim.

The story does not mention, however that Anwar Ibrahim is:
  • A prominent member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
  • A c0-founder of the International Institute of Islamic Thought [4]–one of the institutions that was a focal point [5] of the Operations Green Quest raids of 3/20/2002. Those raids centered on the SAAR network [6], individuals and institutions apparently involved with funding Al Qaeda, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
  • A consulting client of GOP kingpin Grover Norquist [7].

“Revealed: Captain Zaharie Shah Is the ‘Chief Suspect’ in Official MH370 Investigation” by Lillian Radulova; The Daily Mail [UK]; 6/22/2014. [8]

Captain Zaharie Shah, 53, was the main subject of the criminal inquiry

Intelligence checks on everyone else on board the flight were cleared. The captain had no future social or work plans, unlike the rest of the crew. Evidence from his programmed flight simulator also allegedly showed him rehearsing landing on small runway in southern Indian Ocean. The program was deleted but later recovered by computer experts.

The captain of MH370 is now ‘chief suspect’ in Malaysia’s official police investigation into the ongoing mystery of the Malaysia Airlines jet’s disappearance – after investigators found suspicious evidence from a flight simulator in his home.

Captain Zaharie Shah, 53, reportedly used his home simulator to practice take-off and landings in remote locations, including some airstrips in the southern Indian Ocean.

Investigators have now managed to obtain the files – which had been deleted before they swept the machine.

 After more than 170 interviews, detectives determined that Captain Shah was the most likely culprit if the plane – which went missing on March 8 with 239 people on board – was lost due to human intervention, according to The Sunday Times [9].

The criminal inquiry completed intelligence checks on all of the people on board the flight to Beijing via Kuala Lumpur, but the only individual arousing suspicion was Captain Zaharie. . . .

. . . . The police investigation is still ongoing. To date no conclusions can be made as to the contributor to the incident and it would be sub judice (a legal term referring to not commenting on ongoing cases) to say so,’ Malaysian police were quoted a saying.

‘Nevertheless, the police are still looking into all possible angles.’

Captain Shah was said to be a ‘fanatical’ supporter of the country’s opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim – jailed for homosexuality just hours before the jet disappeared.

He was described as was an ‘obsessive’ supporter of Ibrahim. And hours before the doomed flight left Kuala Lumpur it is understood 53-year-old Shah attended a controversial trial in which Ibrahim was jailed for five years.

Campaigners say the politician, the key challenger to Malaysia’s ruling party, was the victim of a long-running smear campaign and had faced trumped-up charges.

Police sources have confirmed that Shah was a vocal political activist – and fear that the court decision left him profoundly upset. It was against this background that, seven hours later, he took control of a Boeing 777-200 bound for Beijing and carrying 238 passengers and crew. . . .
