SHAH ALAM: PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang said the party allowed cooperation with the Jews, especially in commerce, but it rejected Zionism.

He said cooperation with the Jews in commerce was allowed as trading with non-Muslims had been practiced all these while.

"Nevertheless, PAS rejects Zionism because it is a fanatical ideology of the Jew race," he said in a question and answer session during a dinner with leaders of PAS organised by its Dewan Muslimat here, Saturday night.

Also present was PAS' Spiritual Leader Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat, who is also the Mentri Besar of Kelantan.

In another development, Abdul Hadi said PAS would change the mindset of the Malays to strengthen themselves through Islamic teachings.

Abdul Hadi also said the party was prepared to field artistes as candidates in the coming general election if there were requests from any of its branches or areas. - Bernama
