Dear Foreign Secretary August 4, 2007Posted by elizabethwong in Human Rights, International, Malaysia, Note2Self, Politics, Race Relations.
Still very disturbed over all that racist, Jew-baiting and anti-semitism fermenting in Umno Youth.
So I sent that news piece to everyone I could think of who would be concerned – state departments, embassies, journalists, NGOs, anti-racism outfits, academics, and especially to my friends who are Jewish. Better to nip this in the bud than to have bloomin’ brown shirts roaming our streets.
(Coincidentally, one of the Maxims of those brown shirts was “All opposition must be stamped into the ground”. Sounds a lot like Gerak Gempur / Pembangkang Sifar?)
Then I remember – the new Foreign Secretary of the UK, David Miliband, came from the Polish Jewish refugee community who fled from the Holocaust.
His late father was the famous Marxist, Ralph Miliband, whose books I still have on my shelf.
FS Miliband’s office should know what sort of students Oxford’s producing for us back here. I’m beginning to wonder what those Umno Clubs in UK are doing. But you can write whatever you wish.
