Perodua Myvi In Israel? What's This?!

In the MyMil forum, one of us shared a photo from another chap's FB. Even though he uses Prof. Datuk Dr Shamsul Amri Baharuddin's photo as his profile pic, that is not the Prof's FB, alright?

Oh no! How could a Perodua Myvi can be in Israel? Is this proof that our Government is actually having trade relations with the Jews? Who should answer this? Perodua? MITI? The Prime Minister?!

Let's look at the facts, shall we?
1. That photo is in Israel. - look at the banner with Hebrew written on it at the background.
2. Israeli vehicle registration plate is in yellow (doesn't matter if it's Arab- or Jewish-owned). Vehicles in Occupied Territories have theirs in white.
3. Perodua Myvi (not Myvy) is also known as (deep breath) Toyota Passo aka Daihatsu Boon aka Daihatsu Sirion...hehehe.

So that photo is actually of a Toyota Passo or Daihatsu Boon/Sirion exported by Japan to Israel and NOT Perodua Myvi exported by Malaysia. Apparently the FB owner has absolutely no idea about Perodua cars' origins....Oh well perhaps he feels that he has no need to know about that....

But the funniest thing is not that chap's ignorance but the 44 people who 'liked' his Status Update....with no one pointing out the whole Passo/Boon/Sirion thing....
