I was shocked to read the UMNO Youth chief Khairy Jamaludin promoting Winston Churchill as role model for his members. Churchill contemptuously called Mahatma Ghandi a 'half naked fakir' and the Palestinians as 'dogs in the manger'. He advocated poisonous gas warfare against 'uncivilised tribes', that is the colonised people. He said no wrong had been done to the American Natives and the Aborigines of Australia because 'a stronger race, a higher grade race has come in and taken its place.'
Khairy needs to study history and identify good role models, not arch racist imperialists like Churchill,.for our youths if he wants, as he claims, to stop Anwae Ibrahim 'inviting foreign intervention.' The minds of Khairy and his band of youths need to be decolonised.
