The Great UNESCO Spoof

If you are getting emails from your friends with a report by UNESCO that declares that "Islam is the most peaceful religion", relax. It's all a big spoof complete with certificate and all.

Apparently, the spoof originated here.

Even UNESCO was quick to issue a denial.

Of course, given UNESCO's dubious history, one can understand why some people might think it's a real story.

Notwithstanding the clarification, some people still think it's real, like Pope Francis the First (and hopefully the Last).
