Protest Against US. I Agree With KJ's Sentiments But Not His Methods.

Yeaterday Khairy Jamaludin and a group of protesters tried to force their way into the KLCC to hand over a memorandum to US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. They were, however, prevented from doing so by members of the Federal Reserve Unit (FRU). But Khairy was later allowed into the centre where he presented the memorandum to a US representative.

Firstly I must say that I totally agree with Khairy regarding the atrocities in Lebanon and the Gaza Strip. Such violence must be condemned strongly by all who claim to be civilized and value human life. As Khairy rightly said, “this is not a religious issue or Islam against the West or against Christianity. This is a humanitarian issue where many people are dying. What we are seeing today is nothing less than genocide. It is nothing less than murder by the Israeli forces of innocent people.”

So far so good. But the problem comes when Umno Youth and their other 'comrades' in the BN still use outdated and even downright dangerous ways to show their anger. Trying to break through police barriers and cordons may seem respectful to these 'youths' but to the rest of us it is just another example of boorish behaviour unbecoming of future national leaders.

Probably the cops recognising him as the son-in-law of the PM allowed him some leeway or otherwise there would have been no chance of him being permitted to enter the building. Remember the person inside there was the Secretary of State of the US, the most powerful woman in the world and probably the second most powerful leader in America. Even the slightest hint of any danger to her and the US Secret Service would have brought down anyone they thought was the source of that danger. They couldn't care less if he were the PM's menantu.

What Khairy could have done was to have 'officially' applied to the government to arrange a meeting with Secretary Rice for a few minutes and then handed over the note. I'm sure his request would have been accomodated if it was possible protocol-wise. But that would have been so much less dramatic than braving the elements and the cops. You see, the picture of a rain-soaked Khairy surrounded by his supporters facing a phalanx of FRU personnel is worth more than a thousand word letter handed to Rice personally without the pretence of a struggle.

He rather appear like a Warthog than conduct the meet in a civilised manner. but again a wild animal like him would never understand. I'm sure Oxford Uni. would be as understanding too.
