Commenting article: Libya Suspends UNESCO Collaboration over Bulgarian Head

Libya has officially confirmed it stops its collaboration with UNESCO in the wake of the election of Bulgarian Irina Bokova as Director General of the UN cultural organization.

Irina Bokova, 57, defeated Egyptian Culture Minister Farouk Hosny after a suspenseful and drawn-out race, sealing victory in the fifth round of balloting at the organization's Paris headquarters on September 22. The appointment of Bokova as UNESCO Director General was officially confirmed at a general conference on October 15.

Libya's delegation to UNESCO expressed its disappointment and disagreement with the election of Irina Bokova in a letter, circulated on Monday and cited by the Swedish News Agency.

Gadaffi the terrorist, and Libya as a nation can get a nice stick and put up their a.s.s.e.s and rotate for all many of us care (p.s. i am not BG)- I hate the a...h.o.l.e ex-neo-terrorisy .. and I say this in the nicest possible way

Oh, big deal! Who cares what Libya does? For that matter, who cares what UNESCO does? Everyone should withdraw and it should be abolished. And the whole UN with it. Incompetent, corrupt, ineffective bumbling idiots.

Dear older sister (aide da ne Vi naricham "kako", "lelio" ili "babo")

I am sure you well understand that world politics is not confined to your narrow-minded and bigoted views, for sure.

" Dear older sister (aide da ne Vi naricham "kako", "lelio" ili "babo")"

You talking to me?

If so, what exactly are you trying to say? Do we have yet another liberal brainwashed zombie cultural Marxist here for me to kick around? If so, bend over and spread them. I KNOW how wide-minded you think you are, so just DO it!

I would like to read the editorial on that topic, by the Editor in Chief of the Sofia News Directorate....
Well who cares somebody will say but... even beeing born in a town with mixed population bulgarian christians and bulgarian moslems, will not help the Director elect of UNESCO to become an Director General for all members of the Organization. Its said but through that extremists with whom socialist Bulgaria has been allied for decades are now turning the wheel around, that shows how week Bulgarias Foreign Policy is...

Libya is a tiny nation in the a.s.s. end of Africa. If you look up the map upside down. Now who really cares what Gaddafi thinks or does? He is a wacko-jacko for sure amongst the terrorist elite. (not sure who said this but true

Nellie brings a good point- what does UNESCO do anyway? How relevant is UNESCO to our modern world? Its an irrelevant institution not even worth thinking about unless there are no other news around.

My last words on Gadaffi, jesus get yourself better clothing, ok it was cool back in the 70's sometime but now you just look like bozo-the-clown... who can take this clown seriously? He is a joke, although not a funny one.
