Do we really want to send 'The Keris' to UNESCO?

Malaysia's Education Minister Hishammuddin Hussein is going to vie for a seat on the exec. board of UNESCO or the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation - Bernama.

From UNESCO's website, the purpose of the Organisation, as defined by it's Constitution, is:

"to contribute to peace and security by promoting collaboration among nations through education, science and culture in order to further universal respect for justice, for the rule of law and for the human rights and fundamental freedoms which are affirmed for the peoples of the world, without distinction of race, sex, language or religion, by the Charter of the United Nations."
Now I ask you, fellow Malaysians and astrocannots...


Can we, in good conscience, send 'The Keris' to UNESCO and allow him to taint that organisation with his racist, supremacist disease?

Will that not be a blatant example of hypocrisy of the highest degree? Where the last Apartheid country on earth purports to send a delegate to help further the cause of universal equality?

Should send him to volunteer on UNICEF first to understand human suffering and basic human rights lessons.
