Investigate War Crimes In Sri Lanka!

This week marks the second anniversary of the end of Sri Lanka’s 26-year civil war, between government forces and the opposition Tamil Tigers.  The Tigers were seeking an independent state for the Tamil minority on the island.  As documented by Amnesty International and a recent U.N. panel report, there are credible reports that both sides committed gross abuses of human rights and international humanitarian law, including war crimes.  Yet no one has been held accountable for these crimes.

We know that the Sri Lankan government won’t effectively investigate these abuses.

So Amnesty International has been campaigning for an international war crimes investigation in Sri Lanka.  On March 15, we took to the streets in Chicago to demand justice in Sri Lanka.  In New York City, Amnesty International activists gathered outside the Sri Lankan Mission to the U.N. on April 8 as part of “Get on the Bus – New York.”  On April 15, we demonstrated outside the Sri Lankan Embassy in Washington as part of “Get on the Bus – DC.”  More recently, as shown in the photos above, Amnesty members in other parts of the U.S. have joined in calling on the U.N. to hold an international investigation on war crimes in Sri Lanka.

It would be a great help if we can get the U.S. government to publicly support our call for an international war crimes investigation in Sri Lanka.  Please write the U.S. government today, so that the victims and their families can finally receive truth and justice.

  1. SRI LANKA MILITARY INTELLIGENCE ATTEMPT TO DISCREDIT WAR CRIMES EVIDENCE & THE UN PANEL REPORT http://www.lankanewsweb.com/news/EN_2011_05_16_00
    Sri Lanka Military Intelligence Special Unit based at the Panagoda Army Camp are co-ordinating efforts to discredit Tamil Diaspora and Human Rights Organisations' efforts to prove that war crimes and crimes against humanity were committed during the last phase of the war that ended in May 2009. In a hurriedly organised unit under the directions of the Defence Secretary Nandasena Gottabaya Rajapakshe has gone into top gear in trying to circulate 'photo and video evidences' claiming to prove military atrocities and breaches of international law.

    Working on advice from a Middle Eastern country and with expertise hired from various countries including the United Kingdom and Malaysia, Sri Lankan military intelligence are using some of their Tamil agents operating within the Tamil Diaspora to widely circulate doctored photographs and video footage claiming to prove crimes committed by Sri Lanka Military. The idea is to use these doctored material to discredit genuine evidence that have surfaced over time since the end of the war. These Tamil agents are being advised to target Tamil Diaspora organisations and prominent Tamil individuals whom the intelligence have identified as working effectively with western media and human rights organisations.

    Agents have been planted in various countries such as Canada, Malaysia and Singapore claiming to carry photos and video on mobile SIM cards and on USB devices trying to bargain the highest bid for some horrific photos proving crimes committed. These individuals and their potential clients are being watched by the special unit based in those countries.

    The Rajapaksas need to know that DMK and Karunanidhi were at one time the all powerful family dynasty, the kleptomaniacs in Tamil Nadu life. It took only a single slogan to leave them battered and bruised like a limbless Gulliver. Politics and repressive power over a deceived people, have always been temporary and pretty dangerous at the end.

Dr Palitha Kohona, Sri Lanka's Permanent Representative to the UN, admitted to sending an SMS message through a European intermediary giving instructions to leaders of the Libertation Tigers to surrender, Sydney Morning Herald reported in an investigative story in its Friday edition. In this "white flag" incident Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers is alleged to have gunned down all the LTTE members who surrendered. The Journalist Ben Doherty appeared to have visited Sri Lanka and gathered the pertinent evidentiary information, including a statement from an eye-witness to the incident.

    Nothing will happen by some welcoming UN report: Basil Rajapaksa http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&art
    Sri Lanka President’s brother and SL Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa made an unannounced sudden visit to Jaffna Monday. Nothing will happen by some welcoming the UN panel report and ‘Tamils should not play treachery by betraying the country for a few thousand dollars,’ Basil Rajapaksa who was carrying a ‘special message’ from Mahinda Rajapaksa to the people of Jaffna said, while addressing a meeting at Maaviddapuram. Basil’s ‘message’ implied a warning against any evidence going out of Tamils in Jaffna on the war crimes and genocide committed on them, news sources in Jaffna said.

    Thousands of digital pictures and video clips, many satellite images and other concrete evidences are available to prove without a shadow of doubt that Sri Lankan regime is still committing countless crimes against the Tamil community in Sri Lanka with the excuse of fighting terror.

  21. Without organizations like Amnesty International, Sri lanka would have got off the hook with all the war crimes charges and continued with the genocide of the Tamils.
    Thank you AI for your great work.

  22. The US Government is calling for the prosecution of Gadaffi for war crimes while being ominously silent abour war crimes by Rajapakse Government in Sri Lanka. Why is this double standard ? Is it because there is oil in Libya but nothing in Sri Lanka ?

  23. What Kaddafi did is not even one thousandth of what was done to Tamils. It is a mere fraction of what the Tamils have undergone over the past 60 years. All because of a brutal culture nurtured by very cruel leaders. They nether has the love for the country or concerns for the human beings. They not only slaughtered thousands of Tamils, they enjoyed it often improvising many sadist techniques to inflict maximum pain and humiliation. If all these energies have been directed towards the development of the land Sri Lanka would have been a paradise with full of cultured people. Now it is a hell and a centre of anything evil.

  26. Sri Lankan government wants to make sure that no outsider witnesses or listens to the grievances and ill treatments of civilians in the north of the country. The government imposed MoD clearance requirement, that is a vetting mechanism to bar 'foreigners' from where the mono-ethnic army have an iron grip on the civilians, no one can ask questions or disagree with the orders imposed by the military or paramilitary. If UN or international community intervenes to enforce fairness no reconciliation will ever be possible.

  30. It seems from above, that only comments with the slanders and attacks against Sri Lanka however baseless and racist are allowed publication here by Amnesty International .

    Several comments by Sri Lankans (including mine) pointing out and proving the errors in report, hypocrisy and absurdity of of Amnesty appealing to war criminal USA about alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka, and racism of Jim Macdonald, were not allowed through by censors here ( we have already gathered several screenshots of censored comments awaiting moderation ) .
    In fact no comment opposed to amnesty's blinkered view is yet to appear in this thread.

    I expect this to be censored too, so this is particularly addressed to censors here who may be the only ones allowed to read it .

    Is this how Amnesty International wants to fight for justice and protect human rights ; by denying freedom of expression and forcing one sided prejudices? Seems so by evidence here.

    If not, prove it by publishing all the censored comments now!

  31. this comment was censored 3 times already.
    amnesty international's hypocrites are unable to allow free expression here. so far only one side of opinion, is allowed expression here as everyone can see .
    iow, to racists at amnesty truth and reason seems to be intolerable.
    -

    amnesty international 's role as a tool of american domination is once again evident in this post. it shamelessly asks despicable proven war criminal government of usa to support and judge us sri lankans. what can be more racist ?

    this post never addresses the questions that must be addressed by anyone who wants an 'international investigation' in good faith
    llibertarian(dot)blogspot(dot)com/2011/05/questions-that-must-be-addressed-by(dot)html

    we, only we, are targeted in unjust manner by racist amnesty . all the barbarities committed by bestial american soldiers under orders from highest authorities, (and which crimes are authenticated by verified evidence), are excused by amnesty . amnesty has not called for similar investigation of west actions in iraq , afganistan , and pakistan . what can be more racist?

    a illegitimate advisory panel with no official standing at united nations is misleadingly called "un panel" here . what dishonesty !

    and panel 's prejudiced allegations,
    arrived at by parroting what it calls 'evidence' which were never tested or cross examined ,
    and most of which turns out to be false or taken out of context at second hand,
    are given blind credibility here without examination.
    what blind disregard for facts!

    amnesty international was asked to present its 'evidence' to a sri lankan panel so that it can be examined in detail and cross examined . amnesty ran from it. western racist tools were not willing to be cross examined by us natives!

    racist jim mcfonald who writes this wanted us to appease tamil tiger murderers who deliberately killed and maimed our children.
    here are few examples what they did j(dot)mp/lEhHm9 tinyurl(dot)com/6z66uz6
    this scumbag still calls doing all that "seeking an independent state for the Tamil minority"
    in his and amnesty international's eyes we, sri lankans, are sub humans who must see our children killed daily and obey and submit to west and it judgments like slaves

  32. Without organizations like Amnesty International, Sri lanka would have got off the hook with all the war crimes charges and continued with the genocide of the Tamils.
    Thank you AI for your great work.

  33. It seems our Gandhian protest against racist censorship here, conducted through various social networks has succeeded (at least temporarily) in allowing through of two comments (mine and s/nut's above) ( though it is equally possible that they went through because regular censors are off duty during US nighttime).

    However the campaign must be continued until this blog restore all the deleted comments in full.

  34. The US Government is calling for the prosecution of Gadaffi for war crimes while being ominously silent abour war crimes by Rajapakse Government in Sri Lanka. Why is this double standard ? Is it because there is oil in Libya but nothing in Sri Lanka ?

  36. Will Sri Lanka Tamils Get Justice from the UN? http://dissidentvoice.org/2011/05/will-sri-lanka-
    Forty-seven governments on the Untied Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) will discuss and decide, beginning at its May 30th session, what to do about an unusually truthful report in the world of international politics.

    The first pogrom took place in June 1956 as the new Prime Minister SWRD Bandaranaike (Sri Lanka Freedom Party/SLFP—the same party to which the Rajapaksas belong) backed the “Sinhala Only” bill, one of several discriminatory measures against the Tamil people. Because some Tamils conducted sit-ins, Buddhist monk-led mobs rampaged for ten days, murdering 150 Tamils and burning their homes and businesses. Ironically, because Bandaranaike was willing to engage in dialogue with Tamil leaders he was murdered by a “pacifist” Buddhist monk, September 29, 1959.

  37. It is obvious that SriLankan government will not investigate and it is hard to expect that from them as it is like asking the culprit to investigate themselves. Hence, an international mechanism will be the only solution. It will be really helpful if these investigations can indirectly lead to a permanent solution such as regional autonomy. If such political solutions fail, then a two state solution seems to be the option to stop further killings and crimes against humanity.

  38. Many people still wainting for justice http://www.groundviews.org/2010/03/23/still-waiti

    "Let's not forget that the conflict ended two year ago,"
    Unless the root cause is dealt with, Sri Lanka will continue to hear the voice of the oppressed louder and louder.

    Tamils in Sri Lanka have been subject to ethnic discrimination by successive Sri Lankan governments since Sri Lanka gained independence in 1948.

  39. It is a fact that SL genocide on the vanni tamils is a fact. Sinhalese including Rajapakse, his brother with the military and the chauvnistic people can try to deny this act, but it would not go away and the Sinhalese who did this terrible hineous act have to pay and they shall pay dearly. We shall live to see it and history a an ongoing process and we tamils from Tamil Eelam and all Tamils living around the world will see to it that all the perperators have to stand in front of an international war crime court.

  42. Sri Lanka continues to state that the report is flawed?? The Sri lankan goveremt has been living a dream trying to wipe out the Tamils however they forgot the fact that the Tamil population is more than double of the Sinhalese!!! Those members in the sl government will pay for the mass killings, and rapes of over 500,000+ Tamils.

  43. Sri Lankan government wants to make sure that no outsider witnesses or listens to the grievances and ill treatments of civilians in the north of the country. The government imposed MoD clearance requirement, that is a vetting mechanism to bar ‘foreigners’ from where the mono-ethnic army have an iron grip on the civilians, no one can ask questions or disagree with the orders imposed by the military or paramilitary. If UN or international community intervenes to enforce fairness no reconciliation will ever be possible.

  44. Why UN don't want to see innocent Tamil community that is slowly being wiped out from Sri Lanka. “Killings of Tamils” started after Sri Lanka gained independence in 1948 and this will continue till the government of Sri Lanka come up with a constructive plan to address the grievances of the Tamil community in this island.
    Over 50,000 Tamils were victim of war last year. Witnesses of these war crimes are mainly the people who came out of the war zone. Over a million tamils already escape the country.

  45. Many people still wainting for justice http://www.groundviews.org/2010/03/23/still-waiti

    "Let's not forget that the conflict ended two year ago,"
    Unless the root cause is dealt with, Sri Lanka will continue to hear the voice of the oppressed louder and louder.

    Tamils in Sri Lanka have been subject to ethnic discrimination by successive Sri Lankan governments since Sri Lanka gained independence in 1948.

  47. We have talked enough. UN and IC members should now concentrate on actions against S/Lanka regime. Rajapaksas will continue with their hoodwinking tactics around the world with sweet words and other offers that men cannot resist. TQ.

  48. Thank you Amnesty International for exposing Srilankan war crimes, without you tamils won’t get justice.

  49. It seems from above, that only comments with the slanders and attacks against Sri Lanka however baseless and racist are allowed publication here by Amnesty International .

    Several comments by Sri Lankans (including mine) pointing out and proving the errors in report, hypocrisy and absurdity of of Amnesty appealing to war criminal USA about alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka, and racism of Jim Macdonald, were not allowed through by censors here ( we have already gathered several screenshots of censored comments awaiting moderation ) .
    In fact no comment opposed to amnesty’s blinkered view is yet to appear in this thread.

    I expect this to be censored too, so this is particularly addressed to censors here who may be the only ones allowed to read it .

    Is this how Amnesty International wants to fight for justice and protect human rights ; by denying freedom of expression and forcing one sided prejudices? Seems so by evidence here.

    If not, prove it by publishing all the censored comments now!

  50. this comment was censored 3 times already.
    amnesty international’s hypocrites are unable to allow free expression here. so far only one side of opinion, is allowed expression here as everyone can see .
    iow, to racists at amnesty truth and reason seems to be intolerable.
    -

    amnesty international ‘s role as a tool of american domination is once again evident in this post. it shamelessly asks despicable proven war criminal government of usa to support and judge us sri lankans. what can be more racist ?

    this post never addresses the questions that must be addressed by anyone who wants an ‘international investigation’ in good faith
    llibertarian(dot)blogspot(dot)com/2011/05/questions-that-must-be-addressed-by(dot)html

    we, only we, are targeted in unjust manner by racist amnesty . all the barbarities committed by bestial american soldiers under orders from highest authorities, (and which crimes are authenticated by verified evidence), are excused by amnesty . amnesty has not called for similar investigation of west actions in iraq , afganistan , and pakistan . what can be more racist?

    a illegitimate advisory panel with no official standing at united nations is misleadingly called “un panel” here . what dishonesty !

    and panel ‘s prejudiced allegations,
    arrived at by parroting what it calls ‘evidence’ which were never tested or cross examined ,
    and most of which turns out to be false or taken out of context at second hand,
    are given blind credibility here without examination.
    what blind disregard for facts!

    amnesty international was asked to present its ‘evidence’ to a sri lankan panel so that it can be examined in detail and cross examined . amnesty ran from it. western racist tools were not willing to be cross examined by us natives!

    racist jim mcfonald who writes this wanted us to appease tamil tiger murderers who deliberately killed and maimed our children.
    here are few examples what they did j(dot)mp/lEhHm9 tinyurl(dot)com/6z66uz6
    this scumbag still calls doing all that “seeking an independent state for the Tamil minority”
    in his and amnesty international’s eyes we, sri lankans, are sub humans who must see our children killed daily and obey and submit to west and it judgments like slaves

  51. It seems our Gandhian protest against racist censorship here, conducted through various social networks has succeeded (at least temporarily) in allowing through of two comments (mine and s/nut’s above) ( though it is equally possible that they went through because regular censors are off duty during US nighttime).

    However the campaign must be continued until this blog restore all the deleted comments in full.

  52. It is obvious that SriLankan government will not investigate and it is hard to expect that from them as it is like asking the culprit to investigate themselves. Hence, an international mechanism will be the only solution. It will be really helpful if these investigations can indirectly lead to a permanent solution such as regional autonomy. If such political solutions fail, then a two state solution seems to be the option to stop further killings and crimes against humanity.

  53. It is a fact that SL genocide on the vanni tamils is a fact. Sinhalese including Rajapakse, his brother with the military and the chauvnistic people can try to deny this act, but it would not go away and the Sinhalese who did this terrible hineous act have to pay and they shall pay dearly. We shall live to see it and history a an ongoing process and we tamils from Tamil Eelam and all Tamils living around the world will see to it that all the perperators have to stand in front of an international war crime court.

  54. Will Sri Lanka Tamils Get Justice from the UN?
    http://dissidentvoice.org/2011/05/will-sri-lanka-tamils-get-justice-from-the-un/
    Forty-seven governments on the Untied Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) will discuss and decide, beginning at its May 30th session, what to do about an unusually truthful report in the world of international politics.

    The first pogrom took place in June 1956 as the new Prime Minister SWRD Bandaranaike (Sri Lanka Freedom Party/SLFP—the same party to which the Rajapaksas belong) backed the “Sinhala Only” bill, one of several discriminatory measures against the Tamil people. Because some Tamils conducted sit-ins, Buddhist monk-led mobs rampaged for ten days, murdering 150 Tamils and burning their homes and businesses. Ironically, because Bandaranaike was willing to engage in dialogue with Tamil leaders he was murdered by a “pacifist” Buddhist monk, September 29, 1959.

  58. Dutch Tamils arrested for illegal Tigers fundraising

    Tamils in the Netherlands have been forced to donate money to the LTTE, the Tamil separatist army, to pay for its war against Sri Lanka’s government army. Dutch court authorities say the Tigers held these people in ‘a stranglehold’, forcing them to pay a ‘war tax’.

    The investigation has been going on for two years. Several people have been arrested, including the alleged leader of the Dutch branch of the Tigers.

    Reprisals
    Court documents, published by Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad, say that the Tamil Tigers systematically extorted large sums of money from Dutch Tamils. If they refused, they were threatened with reprisals.

    Tens of thousands of Tamils live in the Netherlands. The majority came to the country after the Tamil separatist war broke out in the mid-1980’s. The Tamil Tigers have been listed as a terrorist organisation in EU-countries such as the Netherlands since 2006.

    The Netherlands is not the first European country where Tamils have been arrested for money laundering and extortion. Last year, Tamils in Switzerland and the UK were arrested for the same reason. While the Dutch Tamils are still awaiting trial, in the UK and Switzerland several people have already been convicted.

    Common
    Dr Christopher McDowell of the City University London has published extensively on the Tamil diaspora in Europe. He told RNW that it used to be very common for Tamil groups to raise funds for the homeland.

    "From the early 1980s, hundreds of thousands of Tamils fled Sri Lanka and moved to Europe, the US or East Asia,” he says. “Many of them felt quite guilty because they got out and were safe. Out of this guilt, they were willing to give money to the people who stayed behind."

    According to Mr McDowell, most people didn’t overtly pledge money for the military cause. “The LTTE was very effective in promoting humanitarian causes to help their own people,” he says. “A number of these causes were very closely entwined with the LTTE and most people tended to turn a blind eye to that."

    Globalisation
    The Tamil diaspora has become known for its ability to raise huge funds – with or without criminal intent – for the people in their homeland. "In the ‘80s you saw a very rapid and sudden movement of Tamils across the globe," Mr McDowell says. "They took advantage of the upcoming globalisation and new technologies to keep the diaspora closely in touch with themselves. They were easy to target."

    Defeat
    The Tigers’ defeat in 2009 quickly lead to a severe weakening of the organisational structure of the LTTE, including a worldwide power struggle, which has subsequently lead to less money being raised.

    "This conflating of crime and political fundraising was particularly nasty. People obviously felt under enormous pressure against threats of physical violence," says Mr McDowell. "But despite the end of the war, fundraising apparently still continues."

  59. Sri Lanka intercepts Tamil Tiger propaganda

    COLOMBO — Sri Lankan authorities on Tuesday detained a Canada-bound container with a cargo of propaganda material for the island's Tamil Tiger rebels, a police official said.

    Police were asked to investigate the consignment of promotional material for the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), on its way to Canada from the south Indian port of Chennai via Sri Lankan capital Colombo.

    "There were 45 cartons of LTTE books to an address in Canada," said the police official, who asked not to be named.

    The Tamil Tigers were militarily defeated by Sri Lankan security forces two years ago, ending 37 years of ethnic bloodshed. The Tigers remain a proscribed organisation in Sri Lanka as well as in neighbouring India and in Canada.

    But the Tigers have a strong support base in south India as well as in several Western cities and have pledged to keep up their campaign for an independent homeland for the island's ethnic Tamil minority.

  60. Two years after the end of the war, Tamils in the North and East are still living under the yoke of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA), said Batticaloa District Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian Mr.P.Ariyanenthran. "Colombo government and its supporters are saying that the peace has returned with the end of the three decade old war.

    Seventy thousand army in Mullaitivu district. The same amount of people (70 thousand) resettlement in this district said the Geographic Professor Sivachandiran.

  75. International court, community and media are not played by the rules and ethics but geo poltics when it comes to Sri Lanka. The same international court chief prosecutor will request arrest warrants against top officials for ordering security forces to open fire on peaceful protests and so on. UN reports clearly says that Sri Lanka govt commited a crime against humanity. Even after the report there is no significant action taken by International court. We are glad that Amnesty International is taking up the issue.

  76. The LTTE always used Tamil civilians as a human shield; this everyone knows. It was a particularly convenient human shield, for dropping military fatigues, gun, grenade and cyanide capsule and wearing a sarong would take all of two minutes. That’s what it took for terrorist to turn into civilian and that’s what terrorists did, and not only after they were trapped (or ‘trapped’ themselves) in Puthukudiarippu. On occasion, civilian in sarong could and did throw grenade and fire bullet and this should not be forgotten.

  77. Sri Lanka's second anniversary of Triumph Over Evil is coming around.

    What this win meant for us – the ability to finally have every Sri Lankan living without fear of death by gun or bomb, especially the ability to get into a bus/train and not worry every second when the thing was going to blow up!

    Time is past when purposely the mother and father would take separate buses or trains – just so that if one dies, at least the children at home would have one parent to care for them!

    Sadly, many misguided in the so-called International Community will not ever understand that….

    In May 2009, Sri Lanka's decades long civil war with the Tamil Tigers, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam came to a bloody close after government forces launched a massive offensive.

    What exactly happened during the last days of the battle is still the subject of fierce debate, but it is clear that as the rebel perimeter shrank, around a third of a million civilians were trapped between the two armies and tens of thousands were killed.

    The government says the LTTE were using civilians as human shields, Tamil exiles say the deaths were the result of indiscriminate shelling by the Sri Lankan army. The LTTE was crushed in the offensive, most of its leaders killed and thousands were captured and imprisoned but the Sri Lankan government has so far refused to agree to an independent, international war crimes investigation.

    Now a UN panel has found that the allegations against both sides are credible saying they may have committed serious violations of humanitarian law.

    As Juliana Ruhfus and Dom Rotheroe have been finding out, unless and until the truth is established, a final reconciliation in Sri Lanka may prove impossible.

    Some of the images in their film are deeply disturbing.

  110. The US naval forces killed the Terror Leader, Osama Bin Laden and many of his family members in cold blood, whilst the US President Obama and the US Secretary of State Clinton watched the proceedings “live” at the CIA Headquarters in Washington in May 2011. It would be noted that these US forces stormed into another country, Pakistan, and carried out the attack of the 9/11 Terrorist Leader.

    Two years ago, in May 2009, the even more ruthless Terrorist Leader, Velupillai Prabhakaran was killed in battle in Nandikadal in the Mullaitivu district of Sri Lanka. The Sri Lankan forces killed the Terrorist Leader who has carried out many 9/11 type attacks in Sri Lanka and even assassinated two leaders of Sri Lanka and India.
    Therefore, if the Sri Lankan forces or leaders are accused of “war crimes”, the US forces and its leaders should be accused of far greater “war crimes”.

    Thanks for voting down the bloody Tiger Flag waving terrorist supporter's comments in retaliation for this blog's censorship of comments exposing Amnesty' and (despicable racist Jim MacDonald's) long standing blood stained bias against Sri Lankans who were murdered by Tamil Tigers, and support for Tiger murderers .

  113. Oh – the retarded Jim MD and his Retarded LTTE Peelamists are back at work I see….. I wonder how soon we'd see this post closed down by the editors…. I guess it's better than allowing some retarded Terrorists like Rohan to copy and paste articles here…

    AI – you are allowing some bunch of retardeds who falsly claim they stand for tamils of Sri Lanka to post here and support their lie. As you know, in the previous post, they admitted that killing Kadiragamar and other Tamil leaders was the right thing to do – AI indeed has to be retarded or on the paypack of these retarded morons of peelam not to realize that this very same metality is against humanity.

    How can a bunch of retards who kill their own kind be supported. LTTE are Terrorists and people like Rohan who post here share the same retarded mentality – hence are Terrorists. Ai should not support such people who stand against the values of institutions as AI who are suppose to protect humans and not retarded terrorists – terrorists are Inhumane – you are suppose to protect humans and not inhumanes.

    Hence, prior to investigating War crimes of Sri Lanka, investigate whi in AI is getting bribes from the retarded terrorists to work against humans.

  114. Clicked ?? These are the type of retards who try to say that Sri Lanka is not right – who in the right mindset would have an umbrella inside an enclosed area – LOL !

    Your post says,

    " The Tigers were seeking an independent state for the Tamil minority on the island. As documented by Amnesty International and a recent U.N. panel report, there are credible reports that both sides committed gross abuses of human rights and international humanitarian law, including war crimes. Yet no one has been held accountable for these crimes."

    I like to point out the above 2 facts in bold.

    1. Independant state for Tamils – Why the Hell did they kill Tamils if they were fighting for Tamils ??? Why did they Kill our good Tamil leaders including the innocent Neelan Thiruchelvan ?? They started their campaign by killing an Honorable Tamil – The then major of Jaffna – Alfred Duraiappa – Is this the state that they wanted for Tamils ??? Kill all those who oppose Terrorism ???

    WHY IS AI SUPPORTING SUCH THOUGHT ??????????? Why support a branded Terrorist group when they killed their own kind? How many AI workers in SL were killed by LTTE bombings during the 30 years of retardness?? Will you support the retards of AL Quaida, Thaliban, Hisbullah etc. the same way you support the LTTE ?? What's so different about the LTTE from them??

    2. Both sides committed war crimes ???

    What action have you taken against the LTTE ????

    You have a zillion blogs on GOSL, how many on LTTE?? Who are accountable at LTTE's end?? Why only GOSL??? We have informed you of retarded Terrorist Adela Balasingham in UK who hung Cyanide capsules around innocent Tamil children's necks – We have Video evidence of same – What pressure do you put on UK government to arrest that Bitch ???

    There are many retards out there still who killed many innocent in Sri Lanka – what action have you taken to pressure the world governing bodies to capture them????

    If you can't be unbiased and work on behalf of humans, you might as well close down your shop and start working for some organization that actually earns money the right way. You should be ashamed of yourselves for cheating people to donate money for your unholy causes against humanity (or is it that all the monies you get are from Retards that you volenteer to wash their back sides????)

  115. Press USA, UK and France to talk to China, Russia: Vidar Helgesen http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=79&art

    “I'm not the best-placed person to suggest how China and Russia could be convinced and how one could pass a resolution at the UN Security Council. One should pose this question to the governments of USA, United Kingdom and France, those who negotiate with China and Russia in New York,” said Vidar Helgesen, the highest-ranking diplomat who headed the Norwegian facilitated peace process, in a video documentary released by the Norwegian Council of Eezham Tamils Wednesday, hinting that if the USA, UK and France are really determined China and Russia could always be negotiated to bring in a political solution to the question of Eezham Tamils. “There was a conflict before the LTTE was established; still there is a conflict even after the LTTE has been vanquished; you will not get a solution without a political solution,” Helgesen further said.

  116. The US naval forces killed the Terror Leader, Osama Bin Laden and many of his family members in cold blood, whilst the US President Obama and the US Secretary of State Clinton watched the proceedings “live” at the CIA Headquarters in Washington in May 2011.

  120. Dear Jim,

    Losers (pro-LTTE diaspora, various HR groupies, C4 et) cannot try the Winners/b> (Sri Lankans of all ethnicities who fought for united multi-ethnic country) for war crimes.

    Sri Lankans will, over time, investigate and reconcile themselves. It cannot be forced on us by the disappointed dregs of Eelam & their useful idiots in the human rights circus. The Sinhalese dead of the two insurrections are waiting for their reckoning. What makes the Tamils so special?

    Amnesty's own sympathies for an ethnically based division of Sri Lanka (to be achieved through violence) are absolutely clear.

    Jim says "The Tigers were seeking an independent state for the Tamil minority on the island."

    Oh really? The 'seeking' involved cruelty and blood letting for 30 years, on scale barely imaginable until the West invaded Iraq. They 'sought' and failed. Now they're on a 30-year long whining sulk.

    In 2009, Jim questioned Sri Lanka's legitimate right to destroy the LTTE.

    "2. I don’t buy that argument. There were other options available to the government. It didn’t have to kill thousands of civilians.

    3. The fact is, the Sri Lankan government never sought a political solution to the ethnic conflict or to try to undercut what support the LTTE had from the Tamil population by showing that the government was prepared to meet some demands for autonomy.

    4. Furthermore, the government could have taken other steps towards the end of the war to minimize civilian casualties, by making greater efforts to avoid attacks against the civilians."

    So, Amnesty's advice was more 'Talks with Tigers' and 'Political devolution' !! Unbelievable. Take a trip down memory lane: http://tinyurl.com/5r8u3l8

    Amnesty's declaration of war against Sri Lanka has not gone unnoticed.

  121. It is good that AI has worked hard to re establish Human Rights again in Sri Lanka, where it was so grossly violated during the last stages of the Rebel war,
    The firm belief is that Gothabaya Rajapakse went with orders of no prisioners thus condemming thousands of non combatant tamils living in the war zones to their deaths. As AI believes It must be Internationally investigated & corrective action taken so that it will never again occour

  122. Shocked and Relieved? Me too!

    "I still remember the 19th May 2009 and the sense of shock and relief as the government announced the war was over."Yolanda Foster, Amnesty International’s Sri Lanka researcher.

    Oh the poor love! Why was she 'shocked'? Was it because the self-proclaimed 'invincible' LTTE were outwitted, outfought and totally crushed – accompanied by appalled wailing from idiot pro-LTTE diaspora and its' 'shocked' protectors in the INGO crowd? Was it because the SL govt ignored threats by the massed ranks of the human rights industry to finish off the LTTE ?

    It's time to revisit that incredible and happy day when we knew that Eelam's Glorious Sun God had finally taken a well-deserved bullet to the head. Yup, (unlike with Obama's hit on Osama), there's absolutely no doubt that Fatty Prabha is 100% dead. I reckon he's almost as 'shocked' as Yolanda Foster.

    Here's the appalling Yolanda Foster, AI's SL 'expert' in action in 2008:

    "By 2008 the Coffee Club had geared itself to trying to stop the progress of the Sri Lankan forces… they prepared a statement ..delivered to the UN Secretary General, one of the first shots in the saga of misinformation provided to him. The text was largely prepared in London, by a shadowy figure called Peter Bowling, … supposed to be sympathetic to the LTTE… It had been discussed with, amongst others, Yolanda Foster of Amnesty International, who had served a stint in Sri Lanka at the International Centre for Ethnic Studies, and Alan Keenan of the International Crisis Group, who was still in Colombo and also associated with the ICES group."

  123. Dear Jim,

    Losers (pro-LTTE diaspora, various HR groupies, C4 et) cannot try the Winners/b> (Sri Lankans of all ethnicities who fought for united multi-ethnic country) for war crimes.

    Sri Lankans will, over time, investigate and reconcile themselves. It cannot be forced on us by the disappointed dregs of Eelam & their useful idiots in the human rights circus. The Sinhalese dead of the two insurrections are waiting for their reckoning. What makes the Tamils so special?

    Amnesty's own sympathies for an ethnically based division of Sri Lanka (to be achieved through violence) are absolutely clear.

    Jim says "The Tigers were seeking an independent state for the Tamil minority on the island."

    Oh really? The 'seeking' involved cruelty and blood letting for 30 years, on scale barely imaginable until the West invaded Iraq. They 'sought' and failed. Now they're on a 30-year long whining sulk.

    In 2009, Jim questioned Sri Lanka's legitimate right to destroy the LTTE.

    "2. I don’t buy that argument. There were other options available to the government. It didn’t have to kill thousands of civilians.

    3. The fact is, the Sri Lankan government never sought a political solution to the ethnic conflict or to try to undercut what support the LTTE had from the Tamil population by showing that the government was prepared to meet some demands for autonomy.

    4. Furthermore, the government could have taken other steps towards the end of the war to minimize civilian casualties, by making greater efforts to avoid attacks against the civilians."

    So, Amnesty's advice was more 'Talks with Tigers' and 'Political devolution' !! Unbelievable. Take a trip down memory lane: http://tinyurl.com/5r8u3l8

    Amnesty's declaration of war against Sri Lanka has not gone unnoticed.

  125. Oh – the retarded Jim MD and his Retarded LTTE Peelamists are back at work I see….. I wonder how soon we’d see this post closed down by the editors…. I guess it’s better than allowing some retarded Terrorists like Rohan to copy and paste articles here…

    AI – you are allowing some bunch of retardeds who falsly claim they stand for tamils of Sri Lanka to post here and support their lie. As you know, in the previous post, they admitted that killing Kadiragamar and other Tamil leaders was the right thing to do – AI indeed has to be retarded or on the paypack of these retarded morons of peelam not to realize that this very same metality is against humanity.

    How can a bunch of retards who kill their own kind be supported. LTTE are Terrorists and people like Rohan who post here share the same retarded mentality – hence are Terrorists. Ai should not support such people who stand against the values of institutions as AI who are suppose to protect humans and not retarded terrorists – terrorists are Inhumane – you are suppose to protect humans and not inhumanes.

    Hence, prior to investigating War crimes of Sri Lanka, investigate whi in AI is getting bribes from the retarded terrorists to work against humans.

  128. Clicked ?? These are the type of retards who try to say that Sri Lanka is not right – who in the right mindset would have an umbrella inside an enclosed area – LOL !

    Your post says,

    ” The Tigers were seeking an independent state for the Tamil minority on the island. As documented by Amnesty International and a recent U.N. panel report, there are credible reports that both sides committed gross abuses of human rights and international humanitarian law, including war crimes. Yet no one has been held accountable for these crimes.”

    I like to point out the above 2 facts in bold.

    1. Independant state for Tamils – Why the Hell did they kill Tamils if they were fighting for Tamils ??? Why did they Kill our good Tamil leaders including the innocent Neelan Thiruchelvan ?? They started their campaign by killing an Honorable Tamil – The then major of Jaffna – Alfred Duraiappa – Is this the state that they wanted for Tamils ??? Kill all those who oppose Terrorism ???

    WHY IS AI SUPPORTING SUCH THOUGHT ??????????? Why support a branded Terrorist group when they killed their own kind? How many AI workers in SL were killed by LTTE bombings during the 30 years of retardness?? Will you support the retards of AL Quaida, Thaliban, Hisbullah etc. the same way you support the LTTE ?? What’s so different about the LTTE from them??

    2. Both sides committed war crimes ???

    What action have you taken against the LTTE ????

    You have a zillion blogs on GOSL, how many on LTTE?? Who are accountable at LTTE’s end?? Why only GOSL??? We have informed you of retarded Terrorist Adela Balasingham in UK who hung Cyanide capsules around innocent Tamil children’s necks – We have Video evidence of same – What pressure do you put on UK government to arrest that Bitch ???

    There are many retards out there still who killed many innocent in Sri Lanka – what action have you taken to pressure the world governing bodies to capture them????

    If you can’t be unbiased and work on behalf of humans, you might as well close down your shop and start working for some organization that actually earns money the right way. You should be ashamed of yourselves for cheating people to donate money for your unholy causes against humanity (or is it that all the monies you get are from Retards that you volenteer to wash their back sides????)

    Sri Lanka Army soldiers on Thursday rounded up the mourners who were taking part in prayers at Kalaith-thoothu Hall in Jaffna, remembering thousands of their kith and kin slain in the genocidal war in Vanni in 2009. The armed soldiers of the occupying military that entered the premises blocked the mourners from leaving the building when the last program, a violin play, ended at 5:30 p.m., according to M K Sivajilingam of Tamil National Liberation Front and Sritharan MP of Tamil National Alliance.

    The SLA soldiers who stormed the hall at 5:30 p.m. were holding the mourners at gunpoint within the premises saying that their higher ranking military officers were on their way to ‘inspect’ the mourners.

    “I’m not the best-placed person to suggest how China and Russia could be convinced and how one could pass a resolution at the UN Security Council. One should pose this question to the governments of USA, United Kingdom and France, those who negotiate with China and Russia in New York,” said Vidar Helgesen, the highest-ranking diplomat who headed the Norwegian facilitated peace process, in a video documentary released by the Norwegian Council of Eezham Tamils Wednesday, hinting that if the USA, UK and France are really determined China and Russia could always be negotiated to bring in a political solution to the question of Eezham Tamils. “There was a conflict before the LTTE was established; still there is a conflict even after the LTTE has been vanquished; you will not get a solution without a political solution,” Helgesen further said.

  133. It is good that AI has worked hard to re establish Human Rights again in Sri Lanka, where it was so grossly violated during the last stages of the Rebel war,
    The firm belief is that Gothabaya Rajapakse went with orders of no prisioners thus condemming thousands of non combatant tamils living in the war zones to their deaths. As AI believes It must be Internationally investigated & corrective action taken so that it will never again occour

  139. Attention Eelamoids! Two simple questions for you, if you dare to answer.

    1. Who in the remaining diaspora LTTE groups should be held accountable for war crimes in the 30-year terror campaign in Sri Lanka?
    The fundraisers? The propagandists? The procurers of Tamil children [in Sri Lanka only] to die in combat? Missing from my list are any recruiters as none of the overseas pro-LTTE diaspora youth were willing to fight. :)

  142. Dear Mr McDonald,

    Could the ratings system for blogs be removed for just the sri lanka site alone ?

    For only this site attracts the most systematic & continuous abuse of this previlege ….. by the Sinhalese bloggers !

    Even the Zionists don't stoop this low.

    Nor the death penalty advocates.

    Nor the opponents of human rights in Kashmir or india.

    Nobody, nobody but the Sinhalese !

    Time to take away this previlege from its grossest abusers !

  143. In Sri Lanka they disappear dissenters.

    On this blog site they disappear their voices !

    Different situations, identical reaction !

    Are the same people behind both ?

  144. Thousands of Tamils yet to be resettled http://www.hindustantimes.com/world-news/srilanka

    As the government begins celebrating two years of its military victory against the Tamil rebels, tens of thousands of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) are yet to be permanently resettled in the war ravaged northern districts. Latest updates from the United Nations (UN) reveal that more than 117888 IDPs were yet to be resettled.

    This means two things: firstly, two years after the war these IDPs do not have a home of their own and secondly they were far from being rehabilitated with new sources of livelihoods.

    “By May 13, 2011, there was an approximate total of 117,888 IDPs, including from the protracted caseload, living with host families in Vavuniya (18,589 persons), Mannar (4,928 persons) and Jaffna (94,371 persons) districts,” the UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), said this week in the new update.

    This was above the number of 16,401 IDPs, including more than 5000 children still staying in camps in Vavunyia district. The districts of Kilinochchi and Mullaitivu were worst affected in the final phase of the ethnic conflict that ended in May, 2009.

    The report added that the recently finalised WFP Emergency Food Security Assessment (EFSA) covering the north, north-central and eastern provinces concluded that “widespread food insecurity persists due to limited food production and high food prices.”

    “The Northern Province, in particular, is characterised by severe and widespread poverty consequent to poorly developed livelihoods, a lack of employment opportunities (including delayed livelihood assistance) and high food prices, combined with low purchasing power. While income levels have seen some improvement (except in Kilinochchi District), the majority of the population lives below the poverty line, surviving on less than US$1 daily,” the report added.

  145. Are these the type of people the Amnesty trying to help ??

    Tamils in the Netherlands and Norway have been forced to donate money to the LTTE for its war against Sri Lanka’s government. Dutch court authorities say the Tigers held them in ‘a stranglehold’, forcing them to pay a ‘war tax’.
    http://www.island.lk/index.php?page_cat=article-d

    What human rights did the Tamils in Netherlands and Norway had when these retards forcefully took their hard earned money ??? How can AI or anyone else who talk using mouths instead of rectums justify this cause and say that LTTE stood for Tamils ??

  146. Accountability and justice in Sri Lanka: a new chapter at last? http://www.opendemocracy.net/lutz-oette/accountab

    One of the first casualties of the war was the truth. Journalist were not allowed to enter the war zone and Sri Lankan journalists were targeted for speaking out – the killing of Lasantha Wickramatunga in January 2009 who had predicted his own assassination a few days earlier, was the most poignant illustration of the nature of this assault. Truth about violations is not an abstract notion in Sri Lanka. Rather, it is a suppressed memory of harm done and pain and suffering caused.

    Acknowledgment and truth, including a frank discussion of the root causes of conflict and violations, are imperative not only for the victims of the final stages of the conflict: it is also vital for many other victims of violations committed over the last decades and for Sri Lankan society as a whole, if there is any hope of overcoming deeply entrenched collective trauma. Indeed, the history of shared suffering may, if acknowledged and acted upon, be a unifying force that generates the impetus for doing things differently.

  147. To you Mango…
    "WIN" …. from the Sinhala Nation's Oppression, Suppression, Brutality, in short systematic Genocide of Tamils in Srilanka.

    And, You are talking about "Tamil Children"…this is the joke of the era.
    Terror on Tamil children by the State Terrorists….. long, long history.
    Have any idea abut the 45 odd Grade 5 girls at Nakerkovil Girls School killed by SL Air force Terrorists in Sep 22nd 1995..?? I still remember those girls with white uniforms socked in blood. Any idea about the Sencholai Massacre by the Sinhala State Terrorists..?? (http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=19224)

    You know what, Even according to you The LTTE atrocities started in 1984. That's when the first sinhala civilian was killed by them.
    But, do you know how many Tamil Civilians massacred even well before LTTE ear..??
    Do you have any idea the nearly 10000+ Tamil lives lost during the 1958 Island wide pogrom..?? Prabaharan was just 2 years old in 1958.

    How many brutalities…?? '56, '58, '59, '61, '63, '67,'71, '72 ……
    '83 pogrom is just the much talked one but how many '83's we have seen after '83..??

    Have you heard about the '76 World Tamil Conference massacre by the Sinhala police..?? Still in the Jaffna Library vicinity you can see a monument erected for those who perished in this brutal act. Thank God your rulers or Heroes (Our devils) still don't know the purpose of this. The day when they come to know (You can inform them now) the reason will demolish definitely as they did with our war heroes cemeteries.

    Do you know in '81 almost the entire Jaffna town was burnt down by the Sihala terrorists along with the World famous Library..?? The nasty motive behind the selection of library to burn down…… tells a lot. You could've burnt something else, or you could've killed few hundred more civilians… but why have you chosen the library to burn…??? Several hundred years old manuscripts you burnt there ….is a ever lost "Pride of Tamils".

    We don't want justice from you for all what you have done to us. We know its very foolish to expect justice, democracy and decency from you. What we all want is "JUST LEAVE US ALONE".

    LTTE is not the root cause, just the symptom. Winning the battle against LTTE doesn't mean won the war. Winning the war is matter of winning the peoples hearts and mind. You can make laws in your parliament to get rid of the Tamil version of the Srilankan anthem. Then you can force the children to sing it in a language which they dont know. You can force them to hold the Lion flag…….. but you cant make them LOVE it.

    WE WILL WIN.

    For only this site attracts the most systematic & continuous abuse of this previlege ….. by the Sinhalese bloggers !

    LOL – So it hurts when your posts are subduded ??? check the previous posts on Sri Lanka and How your Peelamists negative voted ProGOSL posts….

    In Sri Lanka we call this "Oorage Malu Oorage Ange thiyala Kapanawa" – Chopping the Ham on top of a Pigs Body" !!

    This is all you Retarded Terrorist know to do – Whine like 3 year old litte girls who did not get their toffees. Boo Hooo !!

  149. Attention Eelamoids! Two simple questions for you, if you dare to answer.

    1. Who in the remaining diaspora LTTE groups should be held accountable for war crimes in the 30-year terror campaign in Sri Lanka?
    The fundraisers? The propagandists? The procurers of Tamil children [in Sri Lanka only] to die in combat? Missing from my list are any recruiters as none of the overseas pro-LTTE diaspora youth were willing to fight. :)

    2. Thayalan says “WE WILL WIN.” What will you ‘win’? What will signify a ‘victory’?

  150. Incremental progress http://www.deccanherald.com/content/162685/increm

    Delhi would have advised Sri Lanka that the best means of responding to the UN report would be to expedite the national reconciliation.

    If the expectation in Delhi was that assisting Colombo to win the last phase of the war against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) two years ago would augment India’s wherewithal to push for a just settlement of the Sri Lankan Tamil problem, it was never quite realistic. The leadership of president Mahinda Rajapaksa chose to build on the nationalistic fervour following the defeat of the LTTE to consolidate his political power.

    Nothing wrong here — Rajapaksa won’t be the last politician, either, to use the nationalistic card to boost democratic power. In the Sri Lankan socio-cultural milieu, the danger lies in Rajapaksa’s political indebtedness to the nationalist sentiments from which he derives mandate. Anyway, things were going splendidly well for Rajapaksa when there has been a sudden reversal of fortunes.

  151. International probe into Sri Lanka’s war crimes urged at British rally http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&art

    A vigil in London commemorating the tens of thousands of Tamils massacred two years ago by Sri Lanka’s forces in the final months of the island’s war was addressed Wednesday by parliamentarians from all three major political parties and representatives of leading UK trade unions, rights and peace campaigns, as well as representatives of several Tamil Diaspora organisations, with many speakers calling for an international investigation into the atrocities and recognition of Tamil self-determination and Tamil Eelam. The British Tamil Forum (BTF), with the support of other diaspora groups has organised the Mu'l'livaaykkaal Remembrance event. Braving rains, over twelve thousand people attended the Trafalgar Square event in the course of the evening, the organizers said, citing police liaison officers.

    In Sri Lanka they disappear dissenters.

    On this blog site they disappear their voices !

    Different situations, identical reaction !

    Are the same people behind both ?

    This blog also contains posts by so many who supported the retarded LTTE cause. Some even went on to state publicaly that killing of Lakshman Kadiragamar and other Tamils by the LTTE is justified.

    So, can we assume that it is the same retarded LTTE guys who are behind both?

    In addition, are these the same people who did money laundaring, stole credit cards in the west – Jundging by A(ss) Savage and Rohan's posts, I have little doubt that they were in the streets of London steeling money from the good Britishers.

  153. AMNESTY !!!!

    You say both parties committed WAR crimes !!

    Where are the charges Against the LTTE ??? Who are the culprits and when do we see the reports ????

    “WIN” …. from the Sinhala Nation’s Oppression, Suppression, Brutality, in short systematic Genocide of Tamils in Srilanka.

    Oy You retarded terrorist – where in Sri Lanka are Tamils being treated wrong and where are they being killed ?? When is the last time U visited Sri Lanka?? I see several Tamils here at my work place and I don't see them hiding away or being hunted by anyone to be killed. All I see is them making merry with others immaterial of ethnicity or Religion. Whom are you trying to lie to?? You think others in this world are as retarded as you are ?

    And, You are talking about “Tamil Children”…this is the joke of the era.

    Indeed, you retards do not have any right to talk about Tamil or Any other Child for that matter. You retards gave guns and hung cyanide capsules around their necks – you forcefull took them from their parents and reped their innocense. You indeed have no right to talk on behalf of them you retarded Terrorist.

    You know what, Even according to you The LTTE atrocities started in 1984. That’s when the first sinhala civilian was killed by them.

    Oh Yes – Because you started your unholy retarded war by Killing a well respected tamil – Alfred D – the mayor of Jaffna. You started Killing Tamils before you killed Singhalees and Muslims – you retards !!

    Check the lists – how many where retarded LTTE is to be blamed ???

    See your retarded masters works !!

    Ethnic battles happen all over the world and it happened a lot in yesteryears – if you are trying to pull up those, there will be so many unfinished battles around the world where even the red indians will fight against USA, Mayans and Incas against the Spanish etc. Sri Lankans should fight south indians for the atrocities during Polonnaruwa era. That's not how the world works and there is something called moving forward together as one which you retards seem hard to digest.

    No body is justifying what happened in 83 or 81 or burning of the Jaffna Library – it was wrong and we do stand with tamil or any other person to condemn those wrong doings. But, why can't you retards stand with us to say what the LTTE did by Killing all our good tamil Politicians was worng and using of our Tamil children agsint their will to fight was wrong, killing of other ethnic groups and bombing cities was wrong?? chasing away muslims and singhalees from northe was wrong ?? Why can't you have the balls to say that ? Is it because you are retarded or haven't got calls to say that ??

    We don’t want justice from you for all what you have done to us.

    Who is going to to justice to what you have done to us then ??? For all the killings etc ?? If we are willing to move forward and reconcile, why can't you ???

    I trust GOSL did justice to all Tamils, Singhalees, Muslims etc. who lost their lives, loved ones and property when they got rid of the Retarded LTTE Leader. The justice you can do to your own people is to join the GOSL like Karuna, Pillayan, Douglas, Daya, George, Mano and many other Tamil leaders did and support re-build lives of the people of North. What you are doing now is try further drag them down drains.

    What the innocent Tamil people what from the Retarded LTTE is to Leave them alone now. I hope youretards will get that message.

    LTTE indeed was the root cause and the ONLY Cause for the innocent Tamils to suffer in this country – If you retards had not killed our good tamil politicians, they would have fought for all that was required for Tamil people in a decent way – But, you retards got rid of all good and educated Tamil politicians which was wrong you did to the whole Tamil community of this country – You have no right to talk on behalf of tamils – You ruined Tamils !!

  155. How Jaya's victory changes Indo-Lanka relations http://www.rediff.com/news/column/how-jayas-victo

    Speaking at her very first press conference, Jayalalithaa said "The President of Sri Lanka must be tried for war crimes and brought before the International Court of Law… India can no longer remain a silent spectator… If necessary, an economic blockade will have to be resorted to bring a recalcitrant Sri Lanka to heel."

    What will be the effect of Jayalalithaa first salvo against Rajapaksa? How will it impact India's Sri Lanka policy? These are some of the questions likely to be debated more frequently in the coming months.

    Whatever be the effect, Jayalalithaa now sworn in as the new chief minister of Tamil Nadu, has thrown a spanner in the uneasy equation New Delhi [ Images ] had built with Tamil Nadu's outgoing Chief Minister M Karunanidhi [ Images ]. And India's handling of Sri Lanka is likely to undergo a subtle change as a result of Jayalalithaa's rise to power in Tamil Nadu.

  156. Thousands of Tamils yet to be resettled http://www.hindustantimes.com/world-news/srilanka

    As the government begins celebrating two years of its military victory against the Tamil rebels, tens of thousands of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) are yet to be permanently resettled in the war ravaged northern districts. Latest updates from the United Nations (UN) reveal that more than 117888 IDPs were yet to be resettled.

    This means two things: firstly, two years after the war these IDPs do not have a home of their own and secondly they were far from being rehabilitated with new sources of livelihoods.

    “By May 13, 2011, there was an approximate total of 117,888 IDPs, including from the protracted caseload, living with host families in Vavuniya (18,589 persons), Mannar (4,928 persons) and Jaffna (94,371 persons) districts,” the UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), said this week in the new update.

    This was above the number of 16,401 IDPs, including more than 5000 children still staying in camps in Vavunyia district. The districts of Kilinochchi and Mullaitivu were worst affected in the final phase of the ethnic conflict that ended in May, 2009.

    The report added that the recently finalised WFP Emergency Food Security Assessment (EFSA) covering the north, north-central and eastern provinces concluded that “widespread food insecurity persists due to limited food production and high food prices.”

    “The Northern Province, in particular, is characterised by severe and widespread poverty consequent to poorly developed livelihoods, a lack of employment opportunities (including delayed livelihood assistance) and high food prices, combined with low purchasing power. While income levels have seen some improvement (except in Kilinochchi District), the majority of the population lives below the poverty line, surviving on less than US$1 daily,” the report added.

  158. Are these the type of people the Amnesty trying to help ??

    Tamils in the Netherlands and Norway have been forced to donate money to the LTTE for its war against Sri Lanka’s government. Dutch court authorities say the Tigers held them in ‘a stranglehold’, forcing them to pay a ‘war tax’.
    http://www.island.lk/index.php?page_cat=article-d

    What human rights did the Tamils in Netherlands and Norway had when these retards forcefully took their hard earned money ??? How can AI or anyone else who talk using mouths instead of rectums justify this cause and say that LTTE stood for Tamils ??

  160. Petition on Sri Lanka War Crimes Is Fake Carried Into Empty Building by UN Staffer, Nambiar Stonewalls http://www.innercitypress.com/namban2sri051811.ht

    On the second anniversary of the bloody end of the conflict in Sri Lanka, outside the UN in New York chants of “UN, UN, Never again” and “Ban Ki-moon, Act Now” echoed off the white metal building where Secretary General Ban's office now is. Inner City Press asked Ban's spokesman Martin Nesirky if the UN's envoy to Sri Lanka Vijay Nambiar would be willing to answer some questions, about his role in the final stage of the conflict, watching Unmanned Aerial Vehicle footage and telling surrenderees to come out with white flags, whereupon they were killed.

  161. Accountability and justice in Sri Lanka: a new chapter at last? http://www.opendemocracy.net/lutz-oette/accountab

    One of the first casualties of the war was the truth. Journalist were not allowed to enter the war zone and Sri Lankan journalists were targeted for speaking out – the killing of Lasantha Wickramatunga in January 2009 who had predicted his own assassination a few days earlier, was the most poignant illustration of the nature of this assault. Truth about violations is not an abstract notion in Sri Lanka. Rather, it is a suppressed memory of harm done and pain and suffering caused.

    Acknowledgment and truth, including a frank discussion of the root causes of conflict and violations, are imperative not only for the victims of the final stages of the conflict: it is also vital for many other victims of violations committed over the last decades and for Sri Lankan society as a whole, if there is any hope of overcoming deeply entrenched collective trauma. Indeed, the history of shared suffering may, if acknowledged and acted upon, be a unifying force that generates the impetus for doing things differently.

  163. We know that it is hard for some retarded terrorists of LTTE to see the innocent Tamil people living in peace after the War was over.

    Hence, they go around the world lying about the GOSL and about re-settlement process, how the war was conducted etc.

    But, the actual truth is that these retarded bastards who killed Tamils and others have not even stepped in to Sri Lanka nor have seen the suffering the innocent people wne through during the time the retarded prabakaran and LTTE were ruling them. what the retards who blog here did was steel money from the west and send to their retarded leader to buy arms that killed our innocent Tamil people.

    To all you retarded LTTE terrorist supporters – you lost, are loosing and will loose in future – There is no space for liars, murderers, theves and retardard terrorits in this world !!

  164. To you Mango…
    "WIN" …. from the Sinhala Nation's Oppression, Suppression, Brutality, in short systematic Genocide of Tamils in Srilanka.

    And, You are talking about "Tamil Children"…this is the joke of the era.
    Terror on Tamil children by the State Terrorists….. long, long history.
    Have any idea abut the 45 odd Grade 5 girls at Nakerkovil Girls School killed by SL Air force Terrorists in Sep 22nd 1995..?? I still remember those girls with white uniforms socked in blood. Any idea about the Sencholai Massacre by the Sinhala State Terrorists..?? (http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=19224)

    You know what, Even according to you The LTTE atrocities started in 1984. That's when the first sinhala civilian was killed by them.
    But, do you know how many Tamil Civilians massacred even well before LTTE ear..??
    Do you have any idea the nearly 10000+ Tamil lives lost during the 1958 Island wide pogrom..?? Prabaharan was just 2 years old in 1958.

    How many brutalities…?? '56, '58, '59, '61, '63, '67,'71, '72 ……
    '83 pogrom is just the much talked one but how many '83's we have seen after '83..??

    Have you heard about the '76 World Tamil Conference massacre by the Sinhala police..?? Still in the Jaffna Library vicinity you can see a monument erected for those who perished in this brutal act. Thank God your rulers or Heroes (Our devils) still don't know the purpose of this. The day when they come to know (You can inform them now) the reason will demolish definitely as they did with our war heroes cemeteries.

    Do you know in '81 almost the entire Jaffna town was burnt down by the Sihala terrorists along with the World famous Library..?? The nasty motive behind the selection of library to burn down…… tells a lot. You could've burnt something else, or you could've killed few hundred more civilians… but why have you chosen the library to burn…??? Several hundred years old manuscripts you burnt there ….is a ever lost "Pride of Tamils".

    We don't want justice from you for all what you have done to us. We know its very foolish to expect justice, democracy and decency from you. What we all want is "JUST LEAVE US ALONE".

    LTTE is not the root cause, just the symptom. Winning the battle against LTTE doesn't mean won the war. Winning the war is matter of winning the peoples hearts and mind. You can make laws in your parliament to get rid of the Tamil version of the Srilankan anthem. Then you can force the children to sing it in a language which they dont know. You can force them to hold the Lion flag…….. but you cant make them LOVE it.

    WE WILL WIN.

    Oh Yes – Because you started your unholy retarded war by Killing a well respected tamil – Alfred D – the mayor of Jaffna. You started Killing Tamils before you killed Singhalees and Muslims – you retards !!

    Check the lists – how many where retarded LTTE is to be blamed ???

    Ethnic battles happen all over the world and it happened a lot in yesteryears – if you are trying to pull up those, there will be so many unfinished battles around the world where even the red indians will fight against USA, Mayans and Incas against the Spanish etc. Sri Lankans should fight south indians for the atrocities during Polonnaruwa era. That's not how the world works and there is something called moving forward together as one which you retards seem hard to digest.

    No body is justifying what happened in 83 or 81 or burning of the Jaffna Library – it was wrong and we do stand with tamil or any other person to condemn those wrong doings. But, why can't you retards stand with us to say what the LTTE did by Killing all our good tamil Politicians was worng and using of our Tamil children agsint their will to fight was wrong, killing of other ethnic groups and bombing cities was wrong?? chasing away muslims and singhalees from northe was wrong ?? Why can't you have the balls to say that ? Is it because you are retarded or haven't got calls to say that ??

    We don’t want justice from you for all what you have done to us.

    Who is going to to justice to what you have done to us then ??? For all the killings etc ?? If we are willing to move forward and reconcile, why can't you ???

    I trust GOSL did justice to all Tamils, Singhalees, Muslims etc. who lost their lives, loved ones and property when they got rid of the Retarded LTTE Leader. The justice you can do to your own people is to join the GOSL like Karuna, Pillayan, Douglas, Daya, George, Mano and many other Tamil leaders did and support re-build lives of the people of North. What you are doing now is try further drag them down drains.

    What the innocent Tamil people what from the Retarded LTTE is to Leave them alone now. I hope youretards will get that message.

    LTTE indeed was the root cause and the ONLY Cause for the innocent Tamils to suffer in this country – If you retards had not killed our good tamil politicians, they would have fought for all that was required for Tamil people in a decent way – But, you retards got rid of all good and educated Tamil politicians which was wrong you did to the whole Tamil community of this country – You have no right to talk on behalf of tamils – You ruined Tamils !!

    Speaking at her very first press conference, Jayalalithaa said "The President of Sri Lanka must be tried for war crimes and brought before the International Court of Law… India can no longer remain a silent spectator… If necessary, an economic blockade will have to be resorted to bring a recalcitrant Sri Lanka to heel."

    What will be the effect of Jayalalithaa first salvo against Rajapaksa? How will it impact India's Sri Lanka policy? These are some of the questions likely to be debated more frequently in the coming months.

    Whatever be the effect, Jayalalithaa now sworn in as the new chief minister of Tamil Nadu, has thrown a spanner in the uneasy equation New Delhi [ Images ] had built with Tamil Nadu's outgoing Chief Minister M Karunanidhi [ Images ]. And India's handling of Sri Lanka is likely to undergo a subtle change as a result of Jayalalithaa's rise to power in Tamil Nadu.

    No body here talks about LTTE. LTTE is a history now. Okk….at least on your words LTTE got what they deserved. And Prabha is punished by you by death…okk.

    Where is the justice for the ongoing suppression and slow genocide?

    Could the ratings system for blogs be removed for just the sri lanka site alone ?

    Even the Zionists don’t stoop this low.

    Nor the death penalty advocates.

    Nor the opponents of human rights in Kashmir or india.

    Nobody, nobody but the Sinhalese !

    Time to take away this previlege from its grossest abusers !

    This blog also contains posts by so many who supported the retarded LTTE cause. Some even went on to state publicaly that killing of Lakshman Kadiragamar and other Tamils by the LTTE is justified.

    So, can we assume that it is the same retarded LTTE guys who are behind both?

    In addition, are these the same people who did money laundaring, stole credit cards in the west – Jundging by A(ss) Savage and Rohan’s posts, I have little doubt that they were in the streets of London steeling money from the good Britishers.

  183. AMNESTY !!!!

    You say both parties committed WAR crimes !!

    Where are the charges Against the LTTE ??? Who are the culprits and when do we see the reports ????

  184. Thousands of Tamils yet to be resettled
    http://www.hindustantimes.com/world-news/srilanka/Thousands-of-Tamils-yet-to-be-resettled/Article1-699509.aspx

    As the government begins celebrating two years of its military victory against the Tamil rebels, tens of thousands of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) are yet to be permanently resettled in the war ravaged northern districts. Latest updates from the United Nations (UN) reveal that more than 117888 IDPs were yet to be resettled.

    This means two things: firstly, two years after the war these IDPs do not have a home of their own and secondly they were far from being rehabilitated with new sources of livelihoods.

    “By May 13, 2011, there was an approximate total of 117,888 IDPs, including from the protracted caseload, living with host families in Vavuniya (18,589 persons), Mannar (4,928 persons) and Jaffna (94,371 persons) districts,” the UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), said this week in the new update.

    This was above the number of 16,401 IDPs, including more than 5000 children still staying in camps in Vavunyia district. The districts of Kilinochchi and Mullaitivu were worst affected in the final phase of the ethnic conflict that ended in May, 2009.

    The report added that the recently finalised WFP Emergency Food Security Assessment (EFSA) covering the north, north-central and eastern provinces concluded that “widespread food insecurity persists due to limited food production and high food prices.”

    “The Northern Province, in particular, is characterised by severe and widespread poverty consequent to poorly developed livelihoods, a lack of employment opportunities (including delayed livelihood assistance) and high food prices, combined with low purchasing power. While income levels have seen some improvement (except in Kilinochchi District), the majority of the population lives below the poverty line, surviving on less than US$1 daily,” the report added.

  185. Are these the type of people the Amnesty trying to help ??

    Tamils in the Netherlands and Norway have been forced to donate money to the LTTE for its war against Sri Lanka’s government. Dutch court authorities say the Tigers held them in ‘a stranglehold’, forcing them to pay a ‘war tax’.

    http://www.island.lk/index.php?page_cat=article-details&page=article-details&code_title=25740

    What human rights did the Tamils in Netherlands and Norway had when these retards forcefully took their hard earned money ??? How can AI or anyone else who talk using mouths instead of rectums justify this cause and say that LTTE stood for Tamils ??

  186. Accountability and justice in Sri Lanka: a new chapter at last?
    http://www.opendemocracy.net/lutz-oette/accountability-and-justice-in-sri-lanka-new-chapter-at-last

    One of the first casualties of the war was the truth. Journalist were not allowed to enter the war zone and Sri Lankan journalists were targeted for speaking out – the killing of Lasantha Wickramatunga in January 2009 who had predicted his own assassination a few days earlier, was the most poignant illustration of the nature of this assault. Truth about violations is not an abstract notion in Sri Lanka. Rather, it is a suppressed memory of harm done and pain and suffering caused.

    Acknowledgment and truth, including a frank discussion of the root causes of conflict and violations, are imperative not only for the victims of the final stages of the conflict: it is also vital for many other victims of violations committed over the last decades and for Sri Lankan society as a whole, if there is any hope of overcoming deeply entrenched collective trauma. Indeed, the history of shared suffering may, if acknowledged and acted upon, be a unifying force that generates the impetus for doing things differently.

  187. We know that it is hard for some retarded terrorists of LTTE to see the innocent Tamil people living in peace after the War was over.

    Hence, they go around the world lying about the GOSL and about re-settlement process, how the war was conducted etc.

    But, the actual truth is that these retarded bastards who killed Tamils and others have not even stepped in to Sri Lanka nor have seen the suffering the innocent people wne through during the time the retarded prabakaran and LTTE were ruling them. what the retards who blog here did was steel money from the west and send to their retarded leader to buy arms that killed our innocent Tamil people.

    To all you retarded LTTE terrorist supporters – you lost, are loosing and will loose in future – There is no space for liars, murderers, theves and retardard terrorits in this world !!

  188. To you Mango…
    “WIN” …. from the Sinhala Nation’s Oppression, Suppression, Brutality, in short systematic Genocide of Tamils in Srilanka.

    And, You are talking about “Tamil Children”…this is the joke of the era.
    Terror on Tamil children by the State Terrorists….. long, long history.
    Have any idea abut the 45 odd Grade 5 girls at Nakerkovil Girls School killed by SL Air force Terrorists in Sep 22nd 1995..?? I still remember those girls with white uniforms socked in blood. Any idea about the Sencholai Massacre by the Sinhala State Terrorists..?? (http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=19224)

    You know what, Even according to you The LTTE atrocities started in 1984. That’s when the first sinhala civilian was killed by them.
    But, do you know how many Tamil Civilians massacred even well before LTTE ear..??
    Do you have any idea the nearly 10000+ Tamil lives lost during the 1958 Island wide pogrom..?? Prabaharan was just 2 years old in 1958.

    How many brutalities…?? ’56, ’58, ’59, ’61, ’63, ’67,’71, ’72 ……
    ’83 pogrom is just the much talked one but how many ’83′s we have seen after ’83..??

    Have you heard about the ’76 World Tamil Conference massacre by the Sinhala police..?? Still in the Jaffna Library vicinity you can see a monument erected for those who perished in this brutal act. Thank God your rulers or Heroes (Our devils) still don’t know the purpose of this. The day when they come to know (You can inform them now) the reason will demolish definitely as they did with our war heroes cemeteries.

    Do you know in ’81 almost the entire Jaffna town was burnt down by the Sihala terrorists along with the World famous Library..?? The nasty motive behind the selection of library to burn down…… tells a lot. You could’ve burnt something else, or you could’ve killed few hundred more civilians… but why have you chosen the library to burn…??? Several hundred years old manuscripts you burnt there ….is a ever lost “Pride of Tamils”.

    We don’t want justice from you for all what you have done to us. We know its very foolish to expect justice, democracy and decency from you. What we all want is “JUST LEAVE US ALONE”.

    LTTE is not the root cause, just the symptom. Winning the battle against LTTE doesn’t mean won the war. Winning the war is matter of winning the peoples hearts and mind. You can make laws in your parliament to get rid of the Tamil version of the Srilankan anthem. Then you can force the children to sing it in a language which they dont know. You can force them to hold the Lion flag…….. but you cant make them LOVE it.

    WE WILL WIN.

    Hey Retarded Thayalan !!

    Please show a single quote of mine or of Mango's that's from Mahavansa or related to mahavansa. You on the otherhand have a Retarded LTTE mindset.

    If you are in Batticaloa, why not ask your Cheif Minister Pillayan who was a former LTTER carder himself, why he drifted away from the LTTE and the Atrocities LTTE carried out against Tamil people. You can even go one step higher and ask Minister Karuna why he diffected from the LTTE and fought against Prabakaran – Did he and thousands of other Tamils who fought for him think that Prabha was the right leader ??? how can you say that Prabha was the sole representative of Tamils ??

    Also, if you are in Bati – look at the development that has happened around you over the past few years – Did a retarded Terrorist Prabha do that ???

    Just because you have different agendas, don't think that the world or the fellow tamils would be fooled you retarded terrorist.

  190. Incremental progress
    http://www.deccanherald.com/content/162685/incremental-progress.html

    Delhi would have advised Sri Lanka that the best means of responding to the UN report would be to expedite the national reconciliation.

    If the expectation in Delhi was that assisting Colombo to win the last phase of the war against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) two years ago would augment India’s wherewithal to push for a just settlement of the Sri Lankan Tamil problem, it was never quite realistic. The leadership of president Mahinda Rajapaksa chose to build on the nationalistic fervour following the defeat of the LTTE to consolidate his political power.

    Nothing wrong here — Rajapaksa won’t be the last politician, either, to use the nationalistic card to boost democratic power. In the Sri Lankan socio-cultural milieu, the danger lies in Rajapaksa’s political indebtedness to the nationalist sentiments from which he derives mandate. Anyway, things were going splendidly well for Rajapaksa when there has been a sudden reversal of fortunes.

    What are those ??? Interrogating Terrorists cannot be called terrorising – how else are you going to get information? What guarentee do you have that there will be no bomb in the middle of Baticaloa town tomorrow that might make you loose your life or your loved ones life ???

    All stories on State terror is Bull shit. GOSL of all knows the importance of keeping cool and a good relationship with all opposing parties specially at this time even if they wanted to opress them. See they at least use their brains, not like retards of LTTE who kicked out the chances they got to reconcile and be a part of the political process.

    Where is the justice for the ongoing suppression and slow genocide?
    Dont be frog in the well.

    Dude – I work with many tamils and represntations of all other ethnic groups in SL. I don't see any genocide – tell me the last time a Tamil was killed in bati, because he was a tamil, by another ethnic group. Don't talk Bull shit.

    A vigil in London commemorating the tens of thousands of Tamils massacred two years ago by Sri Lanka’s forces in the final months of the island’s war was addressed Wednesday by parliamentarians from all three major political parties and representatives of leading UK trade unions, rights and peace campaigns, as well as representatives of several Tamil Diaspora organisations, with many speakers calling for an international investigation into the atrocities and recognition of Tamil self-determination and Tamil Eelam. The British Tamil Forum (BTF), with the support of other diaspora groups has organised the Mu’l'livaaykkaal Remembrance event. Braving rains, over twelve thousand people attended the Trafalgar Square event in the course of the evening, the organizers said, citing police liaison officers.

  198. Two years after the end of war: drawbacks and developments http://www.tamileelamnews.com/2011/05/20/two-year

    The Government has no political solution for the ethnic grievances. The worst thing is that two years after the end of the war there has not been a progress in terms of a political solution for the conflict. One and half lakhs of people have not been resettled and their livelihoods have not been restored. The Tamil people in Batticaloa and Mannar are constantly rounded up and arrested. We have met with the Government six times and every time we have been cheated and misled. There has never been any progress in terms of addressing the above issues I have mentioned. All the talks we have had with the Government have all been a waste.

    Government is talking about peace and that been the ultimate prize of the end of the war but shouldn’t peace lead to equal rights to citizens. People can’t make choices when they are arrested, disappearing and constantly living under fear. We have had six rounds of talks with the Government but nothing useful has come out of it. At this point when we are about to go into the seventh round of talks I feel quite skeptical whether anything would come out of it. We have always been cheated and come with our hands empty. I feel like we might be cheated once again.

  199. Dear Thayalan,
    Thank you for answering at least one of my questions. Its a shame you have to rely on the tired old cliches about 'genocide'. Assuming you define genocide as "the systematic and widespread extermination or attempted extermination of an entire national, racial, religious, or ethnic group", where is this happening in Sri Lanka, now?

    We all know about the hideous past, the racism and rioting. We're now in 2011 and nothing can bring back the dead from those days. The LTTE was indeed the symptom of a disease which had to be treated by radical surgery and chemotherapy. The patient is still unwell and recovery will be long, slow and painful.
    If you wanted to highlight GoSL attacks against genuinely innocent Tamil civilians, you should've picked a better example than the airstrike on the fake orphanage at Sencholai, which was indeed a legitimate target as it was training centre for LTTE child soldiers and volunteers.

    "We don’t want justice from you for all what you have done to us. We know its very foolish to expect justice, democracy and decency from you. What we all want is “JUST LEAVE US ALONE”.

    You want justice? Good. Join the queue. The Sinhalese dead of the two insurrections are waiting for their reckoning. What makes the Tamils so special?

    Now, back to my original question.
    1. Who in the remaining diaspora LTTE groups should be held accountable for war crimes in the 30-year terror campaign in Sri Lanka?

I feel like we might be cheated once again.

  201. Two years after the end of war: drawbacks and developments http://www.tamileelamnews.com/2011/05/20/two-year

    The Government has no political solution for the ethnic grievances. The worst thing is that two years after the end of the war there has not been a progress in terms of a political solution for the conflict. One and half lakhs of people have not been resettled and their livelihoods have not been restored. The Tamil people in Batticaloa and Mannar are constantly rounded up and arrested. We have met with the Government six times and every time we have been cheated and misled. There has never been any progress in terms of addressing the above issues I have mentioned. All the talks we have had with the Government have all been a waste.

    Government is talking about peace and that been the ultimate prize of the end of the war but shouldn’t peace lead to equal rights to citizens. People can’t make choices when they are arrested, disappearing and constantly living under fear. We have had six rounds of talks with the Government but nothing useful has come out of it. At this point when we are about to go into the seventh round of talks I feel quite skeptical whether anything would come out of it. We have always been cheated and come with our hands empty. I feel like we might be cheated once again.

  202. THE RULERS OF SRI LANKA from independence are a lot, who tried their best to destroy this country, which was made by the British to a world standard, to a RWANDAN type killing field.

    They proudly wear white clothes to portray the external SHEEP'S clothing. Offer alms to the Buddha statues, talk of their 2600 years of enlightenment, talk about cruelty to animals (killing of cows) but end up killing Human beings.

    For them is a very strange philosophy of Buddhism. The ones who should be shunning any type of killings, are vociferous in support of killings (Humans). The Monks and the priests of the Buddhist order are mostly inclined to the race factor.

    Thus, they say the land belongs only to them. They are doing everything including killings, mass murders, rapes, lies & deception just for the sake of protecting their misguided beliefs that the land belongs ONLY TO THEM.

    The JHU/JVP has baited Rajapakse to follow their misguided agenda of the SUPREMACY OF THE RACE and now finally is going to stand trial for the WAR CONDUCT. The JHU is observing religious ceremony to cleanse their sins. Buddha attained nirvana and is non-existent, I wonder who's blessings they're seeking now. SATAN – or SANAT KUMARA (Maitreya Buddha)??????

    Hello you the Typical “Sinhala mahavamsa Minded”….

    I’m in Srilanka and right now In Batticalo. I born here, live here and will die here.
    But plz dont ask me reveal the address for to send your State Terrorist squad.

    Hey Retarded Thayalan !!

    Please show a single quote of mine or of Mango’s that’s from Mahavansa or related to mahavansa. You on the otherhand have a Retarded LTTE mindset.

    If you are in Batticaloa, why not ask your Cheif Minister Pillayan who was a former LTTER carder himself, why he drifted away from the LTTE and the Atrocities LTTE carried out against Tamil people. You can even go one step higher and ask Minister Karuna why he diffected from the LTTE and fought against Prabakaran – Did he and thousands of other Tamils who fought for him think that Prabha was the right leader ??? how can you say that Prabha was the sole representative of Tamils ??

    Also, if you are in Bati – look at the development that has happened around you over the past few years – Did a retarded Terrorist Prabha do that ???

    Just because you have different agendas, don’t think that the world or the fellow tamils would be fooled you retarded terrorist.

    The Laguage I choose is meant for retarded Terrorists – so if anyone with such mentality get’s offended, I have acheived my goal :D !!

    Now where is the justice for the atrocities committed by the State Terrorist..??

    What are those ??? Interrogating Terrorists cannot be called terrorising – how else are you going to get information? What guarentee do you have that there will be no bomb in the middle of Baticaloa town tomorrow that might make you loose your life or your loved ones life ???

    All stories on State terror is Bull shit. GOSL of all knows the importance of keeping cool and a good relationship with all opposing parties specially at this time even if they wanted to opress them. See they at least use their brains, not like retards of LTTE who kicked out the chances they got to reconcile and be a part of the political process.

    Where is the justice for the ongoing suppression and slow genocide?
    Dont be frog in the well.

    Dude – I work with many tamils and represntations of all other ethnic groups in SL. I don’t see any genocide – tell me the last time a Tamil was killed in bati, because he was a tamil, by another ethnic group. Don’t talk Bull shit.

    I guess you are a toad in the well listening to some crappy retard lying to you through his rectum.

  205. It's horrible that so many Buddhists were compelled to leave after a long history of abuse. I do agree that the U.S. and the west in general needs to stop supporting corrupt governments because of their "special interests." Throughout the recent centuries the Buddhists, Hindus and black Africans have suffered the most with unthinkable human rights abuse, while the world looked away. Only when they strike back does anyone (often opportunists with their own agenda) seem to noticed. The poor Hindus have been pounded with an iron fist for a millennia. Shameful!

  206. The UN SG's Panel Report: Colombo Barks at Moon, Lunges at Tamils http://www.tamilcanadian.com/article/6105

    Several organisations and interest groups – Human Rights Watch, European Union, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, International Crisis Group – strongly urge Sri Lanka ought carry out credible and transparent investigations and bring to book those responsible for war crimes and crimes against humanity during the Eelam War up to 19 May 2009. Allegations range from deliberate and indiscriminate attacks on Tamil civilians to the use of banned weapons (cluster and phosphorous bombs and fuel air explosives). Sinhalese President Mahinda Rajapakse flatly rejected such crimes were committed by his armed forces against Tamils and insisted they did not murder a single Tamil civilian; his regime still maintains that its ‘brave’ Sinhalese soldiers killed only Tamil ‘terrorists’ in a ‘War on Terror’. In other words, according to the regime all-dead-Tamils-are-terrorists; they are ‘terrorists’ irrespective of gender or age for the simple reason they are dead!

    More than a year later and after the United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) regime utterly failed to investigate alleged war crimes, the UN Secretary-General (S-G) Ban-Ki-moon’s Panel of Experts, appointed on 10 June 2010, held its first sitting on 19 July.

    To be fair by members of the ruling Sinhalese coterie, they are fairly intelligent; from May 2009 to June 2010 they stone-walled every demand for war crimes investigations for obvious and compelling reasons. The allegations, if proven, would implicate many at the highest levels, a dire prospect largely of their own making.

    The regime had options. It could have taken a leaf or two out of successive US administrations’ duplicitous damage control exercises of token prosecutions and convictions when dealing with several war crimes, ranging from the massacre at Mai Lai (Vietnam) and torture at Abu Gharaib prison (Iraq). US administrations have purveyed their own pathetically few and essentially cosmetic investigations to maintain deniability – to deny they condones war crimes.

    The Sri Lankan regime could similarly have taken to task at least a few military personnel. But, for more than three decades it did not charge or convict a single Indian or Sri Lankan officer or soldier for mass killings, torture, involuntary disappearances, and for using rape as a weapon of war throughout the several Eelam Wars, which began with then Sinhalese President JR Jayawardene’s army jack-booting its way through Jaffna indiscriminately killing Tamil civilians in 1979/80. The sordid history of impunity encouraged the armed forces to contemptuously and systematically flout international humanitarian law during the period 2006 – 2009; it also foreclosed the political leadership’s scope to craft deniability and implicated key Sinhalese politicians in alleged war crimes.

  207. Ban Ki Moon’s double standard in dealing with Sri Lanka on war crimes http://www.theweekendleader.com/Causes/491/Moon%E

    The United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon was reluctant at first to appoint a panel to go into the issue of war crimes committed by Sri Lanka in the last phase of its war against the LTTE. Then when the three member expert panel’s report was ready on March 31, 2011, he did not make it public until April 18. Here, one is made to presume that Vijay Nambiar, the Chief of Staff of Ban was behind the move to see that the report was released after the Assembly elections in the Indian State of Tamil Nadu were completed (on April 13) to save the Congress and DMK from any embarrassment.

    The panel was set up by Moon in June 2010 only after the Permanent People’s Tribunal declared Sri Lanka guilty of War Crimes, Crimes against Humanity and Crimes against peace at Dublin in January 2010 and the International Crisis Group released its report in March 2010.

    War crime?: Bodies of Tamils killed in an alleged chemical attack by Lankan forces (Photo courtesy: Save Tamils Movement)

    When Sri Lanka refused permission for the UN panel to enter the nation, Moon and the international community kept mum. In fact Moon kept quite in a lot of other issues as well. The UN report very clearly states that time and again their offices, hubs and even relief distribution centers were relentlessly attacked, but the UN had not done anything to warn the Sri Lankan forces who deliberately bombed its establishments.

    The UN did not exert international pressure on the Sri Lankan government to allow INGOs and UN agencies to continue humanitarian operations in the war zones. If that had been ensured, it would have averted the human catastrophe. A point to be remembered here is that the media is censured even today from covering events in the Vanni.

    In September 2008, the UNWFP (United Nations World Food Programme) estimated the presence of 420,000 civilians in the war zone, but the government figures said there were only 100,000. As a result the government compelled the UNWFP to carry food only for one fourth of the civilians. On May 13, the UN estimate was 100,000 civilians in the war zone, but the government estimate was 10,000. At the end of the war only 282,000 civilians entered the barbed wire Manik farm camps. The UN and the GoSL need to answer what happened to the rest of the population?

    Why does Ban Ki Moon consistently say that he cannot compel Sri Lanka to implement the recommendations of the UN panel? The panel’s primary objective was not to highlight the failures of the UN system but to investigate the wrong doings of the Sri Lankan state against the Tamils.

    Though the war ended two years ago, the draconian Prevention of Terrorism Act and the Emergency Regulation Act is still in force in Sri Lanka. The Tamil population there is being systematically eliminated. Is the Sri Lankan Tamil issue a problem of the Tamils alone or is it a problem of humanity? Ban Ki Moon has to do a lot of soul searching.

  208. “I feel like, and the Tamil people feel like, that the initial figure that the Sri Lankan government said was only 75,000 trapped, but that’s the amount of food and medication they sent to the people and after all, the figure has risen to 300,000 so that means that’s also part of the war crimes because the number of people in custody is higher than that.”

    “Credible allegations made by the United Nations report demand nothing short of an independent, impartial and international war crimes inquiry—similar to the tribunals in Yugoslavia and Rwanda,” said the spokesperson for the National Council of Canadian Tamils. “The allegations made in the report represent a fundamental assault on the very foundation of international law designed to protect civilians during an armed conflict.” http://www.examiner.com/headlines-in-toronto/libe

  209. Dear Thayalan,
    Thank you for answering at least one of my questions. Its a shame you have to rely on the tired old cliches about ‘genocide’. Assuming you define genocide as “the systematic and widespread extermination or attempted extermination of an entire national, racial, religious, or ethnic group”, where is this happening in Sri Lanka, now?

    We all know about the hideous past, the racism and rioting. We’re now in 2011 and nothing can bring back the dead from those days. The LTTE was indeed the symptom of a disease which had to be treated by radical surgery and chemotherapy. The patient is still unwell and recovery will be long, slow and painful.
    If you wanted to highlight GoSL attacks against genuinely innocent Tamil civilians, you should’ve picked a better example than the airstrike on the fake orphanage at Sencholai, which was indeed a legitimate target as it was training centre for LTTE child soldiers and volunteers.

    “We don’t want justice from you for all what you have done to us. We know its very foolish to expect justice, democracy and decency from you. What we all want is “JUST LEAVE US ALONE”.

    You want justice? Good. Join the queue. The Sinhalese dead of the two insurrections are waiting for their reckoning. What makes the Tamils so special?

    Now, back to my original question.
    1. Who in the remaining diaspora LTTE groups should be held accountable for war crimes in the 30-year terror campaign in Sri Lanka?

  216. I saw some of the photos of dead tamils lying in the ground half naked, some full naked. I mean, whats wrong with these guys to remove the clothes of dead people? BUDDHA'S TEACHINGS????? Because, I have seen almost all the Armed forces of GOSL wear a thread blessed (cursed?) by the monks (satans?).

    So, they've been blessed by the monks to do the DIRTY work such as Rapes, Killings, Looting, Humiliating the dead etc. No wonder, the Buddhism was swept away in its country of birth and in some other countries in the ancient past.

    The whole blame should be on its religion – Buddhism. We know how much they preach hate of other communities living in Sri Lanka. There was a Buddhists leader by the name "ANAGARIKA DHARMAPALA" who used to deliver hate speeches to incite the sinhala masses for political domination agenda.

    A disciple of Madame H.P.Blavatsky & Henry Steele Olcott, the occultists who lit the flame of hate by their writings and Theosophical craps. Blavatsky's writings have even influenced HITLER to commit mass scale murder. Blavatsky & Hitler both hated the JEWS and rejected the Abrhamic faiths Judaism, Christianity & Islam.

    They chose the Atheistic Buddhism instead to propagate Atheism blended with esotericism, magic, sorcery etc. So, Blavatsky & Olcott bears the responsibility of converting the feudal Sinhalese into killing machines on the pretext of protecting the SUPER RACE – Aryans ( The natural selection of the evolution's ruling class according to SECRET DOCTRINE written by her).

    Those were the craps written by her ( she embraced Buddhism in Ceylon ). So, the natural way of these class is to murder to achieve their goals of attaining the role of RULING OVER OTHERS.

  217. Two years after the end of war: drawbacks and developments
    http://www.tamileelamnews.com/2011/05/20/two-years-after-the-end-of-war-drawbacks-and-developments/#more

    The Government has no political solution for the ethnic grievances. The worst thing is that two years after the end of the war there has not been a progress in terms of a political solution for the conflict. One and half lakhs of people have not been resettled and their livelihoods have not been restored. The Tamil people in Batticaloa and Mannar are constantly rounded up and arrested. We have met with the Government six times and every time we have been cheated and misled. There has never been any progress in terms of addressing the above issues I have mentioned. All the talks we have had with the Government have all been a waste.

    Government is talking about peace and that been the ultimate prize of the end of the war but shouldn’t peace lead to equal rights to citizens. People can’t make choices when they are arrested, disappearing and constantly living under fear. We have had six rounds of talks with the Government but nothing useful has come out of it. At this point when we are about to go into the seventh round of talks I feel quite skeptical whether anything would come out of it. We have always been cheated and come with our hands empty. I feel like we might be cheated once again.

  218. This seems to be a different strain of Buddhism than most people in western countries are accustomed to. They took aspects of Hinduism but combined it with an earlier religion involving demons, as well as the Protestant missionary practices of evangelism. Evangelism, demons and force are not something we're very familiar with in Buddhism.

  219. THE RULERS OF SRI LANKA from independence are a lot, who tried their best to destroy this country, which was made by the British to a world standard, to a RWANDAN type killing field.

    They proudly wear white clothes to portray the external SHEEP’S clothing. Offer alms to the Buddha statues, talk of their 2600 years of enlightenment, talk about cruelty to animals (killing of cows) but end up killing Human beings.

    For them is a very strange philosophy of Buddhism. The ones who should be shunning any type of killings, are vociferous in support of killings (Humans). The Monks and the priests of the Buddhist order are mostly inclined to the race factor.

    Thus, they say the land belongs only to them. They are doing everything including killings, mass murders, rapes, lies & deception just for the sake of protecting their misguided beliefs that the land belongs ONLY TO THEM.

    The JHU/JVP has baited Rajapakse to follow their misguided agenda of the SUPREMACY OF THE RACE and now finally is going to stand trial for the WAR CONDUCT. The JHU is observing religious ceremony to cleanse their sins. Buddha attained nirvana and is non-existent, I wonder who’s blessings they’re seeking now.

    To you The State Terrorist…(Retarded) …& Mango

    You ppl don't be like a chained dogs in the closed cage. Just barking loudly wont makes your lies truths.
    Now you are talking about Pillayan n karuna. This shows you how desperate you are. Here ppl don't even remember them. The only thing make us to remind them is the atrocities. Of course they don't have choice, they do it on the orders of the state terrorists. otherwise they can't life. And of course the traitors are always the good friends of the oppressors. They are the enormous assets for them. SL not an exception. 1000's of examples around the world, a Harzai for afganistan (u know he's the least popular chap there….???), a Talabani for Iraq, a Kadyrov for Chechniya…etc. Do u have any idea how much votes they got in the recent election…?? they even lost their deposits.

    I dont know why u again and again wants to talk about LTTE. LTTE is a closed chapter now. And you have punished Praba with death and claimed absolute victory. But i'm talking about the very long and ongoing atrocities, intimidation, oppression, subjugation, rape, disappearance, militarization…..blah, blah by your Terrorists heros.
    Development……???? what are u talking about. Development got meaning when the very locals get the benefit. But what is going on here is exploitation. Under the guise of development what is going on is "grabbing". Come i'll show you. You can’t find a single local contractor. All are southerners who got influence with Terrorist State. Even the workers they bring from south. Go to jaffna and try to find at least a single local in your so called development sites. At the same time the very locals are deprived from any of the benefit. People have threatening issues for their own existence other than your bogus development. Money – Foreign aid. Name – NE Development. Benefit – Sinhalese. And you call it Development….bullshit. You don’t even know the culture to respect our loved ones burial sites. You don’t even allow us to remember our kith and kins who were perished in the war but ordering us (Schools & Public) to build vesak pandals. This is for whom…??? we are not Buddhist. How will u feel if it happened to u?….and you call this reconciliation…??…. bullshit.
    Just some few incidents in the recent past (within a month) in the ongoing genocide & barbarism by the Terrorist State…
    1. Vaharai – A 14 y/o girl was found pregnant by the doctors in hospital. When the doctors inquired she said, when she went to jungle to collect firewood she was raped by 3 sinhala terrorists & willing to identify the culprits. But the state police refused take the complain.
    2. Eastern uni was closed for several days & reopened recently. Reason – After the SL-NZ semi final Sinhala students went on rampage (Later supported by the police) went on intimidation, assaulted tamil students and forced them to join with them to celebrate.
    3. Jaffna – A 27 y/o female PT teacher of a leading school was gang raped and her body found in her house hanging. People say this barbarism was carried out by the terrorists who are stationed in the adjoining camp. They were threatened by them when they went to complain.
    4. Jaffna – a 26 y/o male was found unconscious in drainage. Previous evening ppl have seen him in a check point harassed by terrorists. After a week in hospital he died recently.
    Disappearances, bodies found in wells and various places, girls bodies found hanging with visible sexual assaults are a daily occurrence in the Tamil homeland. We all know who is doing….. but where to complain…..??
    Simply these don’t come in the so called national Sinhala & English media (Of course it won’t) doesn’t mean there is not a silent GENOCIDE going. But now slowly the world is coming to the reality.
    You working with tamils. Beleive it …..99% of the tamils who works with Sinhalalese in south either don’t talk anything or tell what their Sinhala buddies wants to hear. Once they leave that circle that’s all. Their argument is “I have to work with them, if they are happy for what i say let them and get lost”
    This is my last reply. I don’t want to waste my time for any more…….. Useless. So, for the last you can bark very loudly.

  221. It’s horrible that so many Buddhists were compelled to leave after a long history of abuse. I do agree that the U.S. and the west in general needs to stop supporting corrupt governments because of their “special interests.” Throughout the recent centuries the Buddhists, Hindus and black Africans have suffered the most with unthinkable human rights abuse, while the world looked away. Only when they strike back does anyone (often opportunists with their own agenda) seem to noticed. The poor Hindus have been pounded with an iron fist for a millennia. Shameful!

  224. The UN SG’s Panel Report: Colombo Barks at Moon, Lunges at Tamils
    http://www.tamilcanadian.com/article/6105

    Several organisations and interest groups – Human Rights Watch, European Union, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, International Crisis Group – strongly urge Sri Lanka ought carry out credible and transparent investigations and bring to book those responsible for war crimes and crimes against humanity during the Eelam War up to 19 May 2009. Allegations range from deliberate and indiscriminate attacks on Tamil civilians to the use of banned weapons (cluster and phosphorous bombs and fuel air explosives). Sinhalese President Mahinda Rajapakse flatly rejected such crimes were committed by his armed forces against Tamils and insisted they did not murder a single Tamil civilian; his regime still maintains that its ‘brave’ Sinhalese soldiers killed only Tamil ‘terrorists’ in a ‘War on Terror’. In other words, according to the regime all-dead-Tamils-are-terrorists; they are ‘terrorists’ irrespective of gender or age for the simple reason they are dead!

    More than a year later and after the United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) regime utterly failed to investigate alleged war crimes, the UN Secretary-General (S-G) Ban-Ki-moon’s Panel of Experts, appointed on 10 June 2010, held its first sitting on 19 July.

    To be fair by members of the ruling Sinhalese coterie, they are fairly intelligent; from May 2009 to June 2010 they stone-walled every demand for war crimes investigations for obvious and compelling reasons. The allegations, if proven, would implicate many at the highest levels, a dire prospect largely of their own making.

    The regime had options. It could have taken a leaf or two out of successive US administrations’ duplicitous damage control exercises of token prosecutions and convictions when dealing with several war crimes, ranging from the massacre at Mai Lai (Vietnam) and torture at Abu Gharaib prison (Iraq). US administrations have purveyed their own pathetically few and essentially cosmetic investigations to maintain deniability – to deny they condones war crimes.

    The Sri Lankan regime could similarly have taken to task at least a few military personnel. But, for more than three decades it did not charge or convict a single Indian or Sri Lankan officer or soldier for mass killings, torture, involuntary disappearances, and for using rape as a weapon of war throughout the several Eelam Wars, which began with then Sinhalese President JR Jayawardene’s army jack-booting its way through Jaffna indiscriminately killing Tamil civilians in 1979/80. The sordid history of impunity encouraged the armed forces to contemptuously and systematically flout international humanitarian law during the period 2006 – 2009; it also foreclosed the political leadership’s scope to craft deniability and implicated key Sinhalese politicians in alleged war crimes.

  225. Ban Ki Moon’s double standard in dealing with Sri Lanka on war crimes
    http://www.theweekendleader.com/Causes/491/Moon%E2%80%99s-man.html

    The United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon was reluctant at first to appoint a panel to go into the issue of war crimes committed by Sri Lanka in the last phase of its war against the LTTE. Then when the three member expert panel’s report was ready on March 31, 2011, he did not make it public until April 18. Here, one is made to presume that Vijay Nambiar, the Chief of Staff of Ban was behind the move to see that the report was released after the Assembly elections in the Indian State of Tamil Nadu were completed (on April 13) to save the Congress and DMK from any embarrassment.

    The panel was set up by Moon in June 2010 only after the Permanent People’s Tribunal declared Sri Lanka guilty of War Crimes, Crimes against Humanity and Crimes against peace at Dublin in January 2010 and the International Crisis Group released its report in March 2010.

    War crime?: Bodies of Tamils killed in an alleged chemical attack by Lankan forces (Photo courtesy: Save Tamils Movement)

    When Sri Lanka refused permission for the UN panel to enter the nation, Moon and the international community kept mum. In fact Moon kept quite in a lot of other issues as well. The UN report very clearly states that time and again their offices, hubs and even relief distribution centers were relentlessly attacked, but the UN had not done anything to warn the Sri Lankan forces who deliberately bombed its establishments.

    The UN did not exert international pressure on the Sri Lankan government to allow INGOs and UN agencies to continue humanitarian operations in the war zones. If that had been ensured, it would have averted the human catastrophe. A point to be remembered here is that the media is censured even today from covering events in the Vanni.

    In September 2008, the UNWFP (United Nations World Food Programme) estimated the presence of 420,000 civilians in the war zone, but the government figures said there were only 100,000. As a result the government compelled the UNWFP to carry food only for one fourth of the civilians. On May 13, the UN estimate was 100,000 civilians in the war zone, but the government estimate was 10,000. At the end of the war only 282,000 civilians entered the barbed wire Manik farm camps. The UN and the GoSL need to answer what happened to the rest of the population?

    Why does Ban Ki Moon consistently say that he cannot compel Sri Lanka to implement the recommendations of the UN panel? The panel’s primary objective was not to highlight the failures of the UN system but to investigate the wrong doings of the Sri Lankan state against the Tamils.

    Though the war ended two years ago, the draconian Prevention of Terrorism Act and the Emergency Regulation Act is still in force in Sri Lanka. The Tamil population there is being systematically eliminated. Is the Sri Lankan Tamil issue a problem of the Tamils alone or is it a problem of humanity? Ban Ki Moon has to do a lot of soul searching.

  226. “I feel like, and the Tamil people feel like, that the initial figure that the Sri Lankan government said was only 75,000 trapped, but that’s the amount of food and medication they sent to the people and after all, the figure has risen to 300,000 so that means that’s also part of the war crimes because the number of people in custody is higher than that.”

    “Credible allegations made by the United Nations report demand nothing short of an independent, impartial and international war crimes inquiry—similar to the tribunals in Yugoslavia and Rwanda,” said the spokesperson for the National Council of Canadian Tamils. “The allegations made in the report represent a fundamental assault on the very foundation of international law designed to protect civilians during an armed conflict.”

  227. I saw some of the photos of dead tamils lying in the ground half naked, some full naked. I mean, whats wrong with these guys to remove the clothes of dead people? BUDDHA’S TEACHINGS????? Because, I have seen almost all the Armed forces of GOSL wear a thread blessed (cursed?) by the monks (satans?).

    So, they’ve been blessed by the monks to do the DIRTY work such as Rapes, Killings, Looting, Humiliating the dead etc. No wonder, the Buddhism was swept away in its country of birth and in some other countries in the ancient past.

    The whole blame should be on its religion – Buddhism. We know how much they preach hate of other communities living in Sri Lanka. There was a Buddhists leader by the name “ANAGARIKA DHARMAPALA” who used to deliver hate speeches to incite the sinhala masses for political domination agenda.

    A disciple of Madame H.P.Blavatsky & Henry Steele Olcott, the occultists who lit the flame of hate by their writings and Theosophical craps. Blavatsky’s writings have even influenced HITLER to commit mass scale murder. Blavatsky & Hitler both hated the JEWS and rejected the Abrhamic faiths Judaism, Christianity & Islam.

    They chose the Atheistic Buddhism instead to propagate Atheism blended with esotericism, magic, sorcery etc. So, Blavatsky & Olcott bears the responsibility of converting the feudal Sinhalese into killing machines on the pretext of protecting the SUPER RACE – Aryans ( The natural selection of the evolution’s ruling class according to SECRET DOCTRINE written by her).

    Those were the craps written by her ( she embraced Buddhism in Ceylon ). So, the natural way of these class is to murder to achieve their goals of attaining the role of RULING OVER OTHERS.

  228. This seems to be a different strain of Buddhism than most people in western countries are accustomed to. They took aspects of Hinduism but combined it with an earlier religion involving demons, as well as the Protestant missionary practices of evangelism. Evangelism, demons and force are not something we’re very familiar with in Buddhism.

  229. @ Watch Sinhala Terrorists in Action (welcome, new Eelamist!) :)

    Wow, that's a lot of crimes and accusations. Where's the genocide that we keep hearing about. It must be somewhere, no?

    You talk of contractors being imported from the South. Have you wondered why? It's because the idiotic LTTE ensured that the Tamil population under their control remained ignorant and uneducated despite being given millions of Dollars and Euros by NGOs and diaspora Tamils. Better to give the kids guns rather than schoolbooks. This story from 2010 proves my point.

    North-East — Back To Business

    The north bore the brunt of the carnage. Now it is reaping the benefits, slowly. There is no denying that the biggest boom for the north will come not from handouts, but from the economic and social interaction with the south.

    Jegan, an employee at a shop in Jaffna said business was upbeat after the influx of people from the south. “You see people everywhere. All the places are crowded. It’s good to see many people. It helps our businesses.”

    “It’s fine now,” said one contractor. “We were doing construction under pressure,it was hard to give kappam (bribes) to different groups, now nothing. In the present situation, any time I can travel for work. Now I leave the site at 11pm, without fear. Then, I had to be home before six or my family members would be worried.”

    One constant Tamil grievance has been what’s called colonization — changing the demographics of the north and east through government settlement projects. He says that this is still going on. Now business too is bringing a constant flow of people from the south.

    The anonymous contractor blamed much of this — skills difference — on the LTTE, specifically their policy of child recruitment.

    You have an uneducated society, he said. “Even those not caught have lost their livelihood and education. The forced recruitment of children affects a lot of things in society. Parents lose loved ones. The fear stays in families, there’s a lot of mutual pain. Can’t work freely, can’t sleep in the night. Hear a noise, think they will take my child.”

    “I always think that there are two opinions, each has to respect the other,” said the anonymous businessman. The physical war has ended, but minds have yet to change.

    Is it perfect? Of course not. Is it better than being under the LTTE? Yes.

    You can’t create an inclusive peaceful, happy clappy society out of thin air and certainly not after thirty years of bloody warfare. The immediate task for the GoSL is to provide stability, jobs, security and a decent future for all ethnic groups. Once these things start to happen, society can then start to be more inclusive.

    As long as the diaspora Tamils put war crimes investigations, cry about fake genocide and other drivel before the wellbeing of the Tamils (as they put the LTTE before the civilians in 2009), the Sinhalese will see themselves to be under attack or about to be attacked. Under those circumstances, there will be no inclusivity and this 'justice' you seek so fervently. I also have no doubt that many Tamils are secretly extremely unhappy that the LTTE was wiped out.

    So, the question you refuse to answer is this:

    We know you want Gota, MR & the rest put on trial for war crimes. (Don't worry, it ain't gonna happen)

    Who in the remaining diaspora LTTE groups should be held accountable for their war crimes in the 30-year terror campaign in Sri Lanka?

    Noting that President Rajapaksa’s administration is carrying out Sinhala colonization in Tamil provinces in full swing after achieving victory in the war

    "The nature and extent of Sinhala colonization in Tamil provinces and their impact on the ethnic composition and political character of the Tamil homeland have been well documented in recent studies. It is estimated that almost a quarter of the island’s population was moved from the Wet Zone to the Dry Zone between 1946 and 1971, under peasant colonization schemes".

    "Planned colonization of the Sri Lankan government not voluntary on the part of the Sinhala people is evident already in the Eastern Province in and around the Trincomalee port, in the Northern Province around the Kankesanthurai (KKS), in Point Pedro port, and Palaly airport".

  233. In 2009 May,

    Everybody knew what was happening. World leaders were listening to the casualty figures as a slow cricket commentary. Some of them made statements here and there, just for the sake of making it. Nobody had the boldness to stand up and say “STOP THE KILLINGS”. They had the power but they didn't do it.
    UN was updating its score boards with the number of deaths taking place. Even when the score went up by thousands a day, they kept quite. They didn't open their mouths and speak about it.
    US satellites were taking pictures of the killings but no attempts were made to stop the bloodbath. Hearts of the nations became stones and the helpless perished so that the greedy could be satisfied. Defenders of human rights and highly paid diplomats were hearing about the horrors in Sri Lanka while having their big breakfasts. They found these stories very boring. Experts and researchers in human rights were looking forward to publish their latest journal papers instead of doing something about saving lives.
    Many western countries, although some had raised their voices, their statements were not strong enough to stop a regime that was determined to carry on with its destructive agenda.
    Relatives of those who were dying in Vanni went to the streets of great cities of the world. They knelt down and cried before the kings and queens. They protested through various means. We didn't hear their cry but we found them very annoying because they blocked our streets. They did all that was possible to get the message across. But their cries fell on our deaf ears. If we did listen and acted, we would have saved thousands of lives.
    Our radio shows were not about the reasons for the protests but we talked about how to get these protesters out of our streets. We are now happy because there are no more Tamil protests and many of the people who they were trying to protect are now dead. It is very clear that this war was conducted with the full support of many countries .They could have persuaded the Sri Lankan government to stop the bloodshed especially after the rebels had announced their surrender.
    Bloodbath could have been avoided but nobody was interested because all went according to their plans. Partners of this war had started to reap their benefits even before it had come to an end.

    Why some of the countries no longer care about human rights but are only interested in satisfying their own greed.

    Sri Lanka lectures to the world on the levity of its war crimes and its serious breaches of the international law http://www.tamilcanadian.com/page.php?cat=145&amp

    The HRW further said: “Sri Lanka has a long history of establishing ad hoc commissions to deflect international criticism over its poor human rights record and widespread impunity…Since independence in 1948, Sri Lanka has established at least nine such commissions, none of which have produced any significant results.”

    Despite allegations of war crimes, Sri Lanka’s government has managed to avoid an independent inquiry. But the evidence continues to mount. Sri Lanka is doing its best to exert pressure upon the U.N and other leading global powers which were openly vocal demanding international investigation, including the U.S. to give up their demands to punish Sri Lanka. Rather, Sri Lanka is expecting the global powers to forget and forgive the past, and inviting the international community to do business with Sri Lanka. As a tiny island in the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka is a real security threat to the global stability. This proves by way of how the Sri Lankan leaders and diplomats are treating the world when the responsible world organizations are oblique to do their duties.

    To you The State Terrorist…(Retarded) …& Mango

    You ppl don’t be like a chained dogs in the closed cage. Just barking loudly wont makes your lies truths.
    Now you are talking about Pillayan n karuna. This shows you how desperate you are. Here ppl don’t even remember them. The only thing make us to remind them is the atrocities. Of course they don’t have choice, they do it on the orders of the state terrorists. otherwise they can’t life. And of course the traitors are always the good friends of the oppressors. They are the enormous assets for them. SL not an exception. 1000′s of examples around the world, a Harzai for afganistan (u know he’s the least popular chap there….???), a Talabani for Iraq, a Kadyrov for Chechniya…etc. Do u have any idea how much votes they got in the recent election…?? they even lost their deposits. Do you know that? After all they are very close friends of you now. Its better you ask them all those ques. And all here know why they defected. u knw wht…..according to karuna his one and only reason for defect is discrimination against eastern cadres which was totally rejected by the own eastern ppl. Later he silently dropped that. In those early dayz he even praised Prabha…do u know that? he said he is only against of some of his subordinates.
    I dont know why u again and again wants to talk about LTTE. LTTE is a closed chapter now. And you have punished Praba with death and claimed absolute victory. But i’m talking about the very long and ongoing atrocities, intimidation, oppression, subjugation, rape, disappearance, militarization…..blah, blah by your Terrorists heros.
    Development……???? what are u talking about. Development got meaning when the very locals get the benefit. But what is going on here is exploitation. Under the guise of development what is going on is “grabbing”. Come i’ll show you. You can’t find a single local contractor. All are southerners who got influence with Terrorist State. Even the workers they bring from south. Go to jaffna and try to find at least a single local in your so called development sites. At the same time the very locals are deprived from any of the benefit. People have threatening issues for their own existence other than your bogus development. Money – Foreign aid. Name – NE Development. Benefit – Sinhalese. And you call it Development….bullshit. You don’t even know the culture to respect our loved ones burial sites. You don’t even allow us to remember our kith and kins who were perished in the war but ordering us (Schools & Public) to build vesak pandals. This is for whom…??? we are not Buddhist. How will u feel if it happened to u?….and you call this reconciliation…??…. bullshit.
    Just some few incidents in the recent past (within a month) in the ongoing genocide & barbarism by the Terrorist State…
    1. Vaharai – A 14 y/o girl was found pregnant by the doctors in hospital. When the doctors inquired she said, when she went to jungle to collect firewood she was raped by 3 sinhala terrorists & willing to identify the culprits. But the state police refused take the complain.
    2. Eastern uni was closed for several days & reopened recently. Reason – After the SL-NZ semi final Sinhala students went on rampage (Later supported by the police) went on intimidation, assaulted tamil students and forced them to join with them to celebrate.
    3. Jaffna – A 27 y/o female PT teacher of a leading school was gang raped and her body found in her house hanging. People say this barbarism was carried out by the terrorists who are stationed in the adjoining camp. They were threatened by them when they went to complain.
    4. Jaffna – a 26 y/o male was found unconscious in drainage. Previous evening ppl have seen him in a check point harassed by terrorists. After a week in hospital he died recently.
    Disappearances, bodies found in wells and various places, girls bodies found hanging with visible sexual assaults are a daily occurrence in the Tamil homeland. We all know who is doing….. but where to complain…..??
    Simply these don’t come in the so called national Sinhala & English media (Of course it won’t) doesn’t mean there is not a silent GENOCIDE going. But now slowly the world is coming to the reality.
    You working with tamils. Beleive it …..99% of the tamils who works with Sinhalalese in south either don’t talk anything or tell what their Sinhala buddies wants to hear. Once they leave that circle that’s all. Their argument is “I have to work with them, if they are happy for what i say let them and get lost”
    This is my last reply. I don’t want to waste my time for any more…….. Useless. So, for the last you can bark very loudly.

  239. Call for sanctions http://www.bbc.co.uk/sinhala/news/story/2011/05/1
    Thousands of Tamils held a remembrance rally in Trafalgar Square on Wednesday evening to mark the second anniversary of the end of the war in Sri Lanka.
    They called for an independent international investigation into allegations of war crimes and human rights abuses during the fighting.

    British parliamentarians from major parties, trade union leaders and activists were among the speakers who addressed the gathering.

    Liberal, New Democrat officials commemorate May Genocide Remembrance http://www.examiner.com/headlines-in-toronto/libe

    “I am deeply troubled and shocked by the recent revelations by the UN panel of experts citing the Sri Lanka government and its armed forces as guilty as killing 70,000 innocent Tamil civilians in May of 2009,” wrote Julian. “Everyone should work together to ensure the murderers are brought to justice.”

    “I remember all those many months and years ago walking down those streets, and there were tens of thousands of people, just like there are here today, in front of the American embassy demanding that there be a peace. And I never saw such a disciplined and wonderful group in my entire life,” said Prue.

    He further added that everyone stood in solidarity and promoted the one message to everyone in Canada, despite having the feelings of “despair” and “despondency” because of friends and relatives “suffering in Sri Lanka.

    “You’re bringing the whole world’s attention here tonight. You are standing here united as one people to ask for justice, to ask for freedom and to ask for the international community to recognize what happened years ago because the world needs to know what happened there.”

    Sitsabaiesan, garnering a loud applause from the audience, spoke in both English and in Tamil where she said she “wanted to be one of the strong voices for those who have been marginalized” in Canada and in Sri Lanka.

    Due to the UN report and media coverage, the Tamils have been vindicated and have been proven correct because everything the report stated is what the Tamil community has been saying all along for the past two years.

    “The recent report from the UN panel of experts revealed to the world and revealed many of the atrocities that we all knew what was happening in the island of Sri Lanka for many, many decades,” said the newly elected NDP MP. “The war without witnesses that has taken place on the island finally has some international media coverage because of the United Nations report.”

  242. @ Watch Sinhala Terrorists in Action (welcome, new Eelamist!) :)

    Wow, that’s a lot of crimes and accusations. Where’s the genocide that we keep hearing about. It must be somewhere, no?

    You talk of contractors being imported from the South. Have you wondered why? It’s because the idiotic LTTE ensured that the Tamil population under their control remained ignorant and uneducated despite being given millions of Dollars and Euros by NGOs and diaspora Tamils. Better to give the kids guns rather than schoolbooks. This story from 2010 proves my point.

    North-East — Back To Business

    The north bore the brunt of the carnage. Now it is reaping the benefits, slowly. There is no denying that the biggest boom for the north will come not from handouts, but from the economic and social interaction with the south.

    Jegan, an employee at a shop in Jaffna said business was upbeat after the influx of people from the south. “You see people everywhere. All the places are crowded. It’s good to see many people. It helps our businesses.”

    “It’s fine now,” said one contractor. “We were doing construction under pressure,it was hard to give kappam (bribes) to different groups, now nothing. In the present situation, any time I can travel for work. Now I leave the site at 11pm, without fear. Then, I had to be home before six or my family members would be worried.”

    One constant Tamil grievance has been what’s called colonization — changing the demographics of the north and east through government settlement projects. He says that this is still going on. Now business too is bringing a constant flow of people from the south.

    The anonymous contractor blamed much of this — skills difference — on the LTTE, specifically their policy of child recruitment.

    You have an uneducated society, he said. “Even those not caught have lost their livelihood and education. The forced recruitment of children affects a lot of things in society. Parents lose loved ones. The fear stays in families, there’s a lot of mutual pain. Can’t work freely, can’t sleep in the night. Hear a noise, think they will take my child.”

    “I always think that there are two opinions, each has to respect the other,” said the anonymous businessman. The physical war has ended, but minds have yet to change.

    Is it perfect? Of course not. Is it better than being under the LTTE? Yes.

    http://tinyurl.com/3xnwn8v

    You can’t create an inclusive peaceful, happy clappy society out of thin air and certainly not after thirty years of bloody warfare. The immediate task for the GoSL is to provide stability, jobs, security and a decent future for all ethnic groups. Once these things start to happen, society can then start to be more inclusive.

    As long as the diaspora Tamils put war crimes investigations, cry about fake genocide and other drivel before the wellbeing of the Tamils (as they put the LTTE before the civilians in 2009), the Sinhalese will see themselves to be under attack or about to be attacked. Under those circumstances, there will be no inclusivity and this ‘justice’ you seek so fervently. I also have no doubt that many Tamils are secretly extremely unhappy that the LTTE was wiped out.

    So, the question you refuse to answer is this:

    We know you want Gota, MR & the rest put on trial for war crimes. (Don’t worry, it ain’t gonna happen)

    Who in the remaining diaspora LTTE groups should be held accountable for their war crimes in the 30-year terror campaign in Sri Lanka?

  243. THE ROOT CAUSE of the SINHALA elite's evil is the Buddhism. Olcott came to Ceylon/Sri Lanka along with his mental retarded colleague Madame H.P.Blavatsky and conditioned the Sinhala people in terms of being proud (extreme proud) about being Sinhala and fed the POISON of Racial Superiority in 1880's.

    There is a common perception among the most Sinhalese that their RACE is going to be EXTINCT within the next few decades and it needs a extra ordinary effort to save them from becoming extinct. THIS POISON was fed by BLAVATSKY and her cohort OLCOTT. So, they made all the efforts for REVIVALISM OF BUDDHISM and promoted the establishment of Buddhist schools and he even made efforts to impress the BRITISH rulers to prove that Sinhalese are a special race.

    Thus, he fed the poison of RACIAL SUPERIORITY to the minds of this people. It was from that moment that they began to promote and propagate to their communities about the REVIVAL of SINHALA BUDDHIST hegemony.

    With that poison in mind there came new leaders in likes of ANAGARIKA DHARMAPALA, F.R.Senanayake, Henry Pedris, SWRD Bandaranayake….and the recent one being Ven. SOMA. All these characters incited the Sinhalas to attack and destroy the other communities especially TAMILS & MUSLIMS. If you check in the history of Sri Lanka from year 1900, there were many pogroms unleashed to attack the said communities.

    So, they're still carrying the mantle of H.P.Blavatsky & Olcott's misguided Atheism propagated and supported by the book written by the H.P. Blavatsky "THE SECRET DOCTRINE" and it's ideological RACISM.

    LOOK at what is happening now. They're killing, non-stop. They can't understand the importance of Universal Humanity preached by the Buddha. Instead, they took the misguidance to be the truth and basing everything with the RACE mindset.

    With the connotation of EXTINCTION of the Sinhala Race, it they who are trying to extinct the other races by violent means. You ask from any Sinhalas with regards to the OWNERSHIP of the country – They will say the're the rightful owners.

    INFACT, this country was invaded by VIJAYA's group (according to them) and snatched from KUWENI the original inhabitants and wiped them out of existence. This is their folklore. So, the killings didn't change even after the advent of the Buddha. The wiping out still continues even in the advanced stages of the human history.

    There's a big tide of opinion that is growing in the world against the GOSL at present. It is only a matter of time that it becomes a huge TSUNAMI and engulf the RACIST MINDSET of the ruling elites and their cohorts to realize the mistake they've been carrying through many stages of their history.

    DUTUGEMUNU is a name they always praise in their blood-thirsty ambition of always being the RULERS of this STOLEN ISLAND. Stolen from Kuweni.

    Relatives of those who were dying in Vanni went to the streets of great cities of the world. They knelt down and cried before the kings and queens. They protested through various means. We didn’t hear their cry but we found them very annoying because they blocked our streets. They did all that was possible to get the message across. But their cries fell on our deaf ears. If we did listen and acted, we would have saved thousands of lives.
    Our radio shows were not about the reasons for the protests but we talked about how to get these protesters out of our streets. We are now happy because there are no more Tamil protests and many of the people who they were trying to protect are now dead. It is very clear that this war was conducted with the full support of many countries .They could have persuaded the Sri Lankan government to stop the bloodshed especially after the rebels had announced their surrender.
    Bloodbath could have been avoided but nobody was interested because all went according to their plans. Partners of this war had started to reap their benefits even before it had come to an end.

    Why some of the countries no longer care about human rights but are only interested in satisfying their own greed.

    Sri Lanka lectures to the world on the levity of its war crimes and its serious breaches of the international law
    http://www.tamilcanadian.com/page.php?cat=145&id=5909

    The HRW further said: “Sri Lanka has a long history of establishing ad hoc commissions to deflect international criticism over its poor human rights record and widespread impunity…Since independence in 1948, Sri Lanka has established at least nine such commissions, none of which have produced any significant results.”

    Despite allegations of war crimes, Sri Lanka’s government has managed to avoid an independent inquiry. But the evidence continues to mount. Sri Lanka is doing its best to exert pressure upon the U.N and other leading global powers which were openly vocal demanding international investigation, including the U.S. to give up their demands to punish Sri Lanka. Rather, Sri Lanka is expecting the global powers to forget and forgive the past, and inviting the international community to do business with Sri Lanka. As a tiny island in the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka is a real security threat to the global stability. This proves by way of how the Sri Lankan leaders and diplomats are treating the world when the responsible world organizations are oblique to do their duties.

  246. Call for sanctions
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sinhala/news/story/2011/05/110519_tamils.shtml
    Thousands of Tamils held a remembrance rally in Trafalgar Square on Wednesday evening to mark the second anniversary of the end of the war in Sri Lanka.
    They called for an independent international investigation into allegations of war crimes and human rights abuses during the fighting.

    British parliamentarians from major parties, trade union leaders and activists were among the speakers who addressed the gathering.

    Liberal, New Democrat officials commemorate May Genocide Remembrance
    http://www.examiner.com/headlines-in-toronto/liberal-new-democrat-officials-commemorate-may-genocide-remembrance#ixzz1MxUkQCo5

    “I am deeply troubled and shocked by the recent revelations by the UN panel of experts citing the Sri Lanka government and its armed forces as guilty as killing 70,000 innocent Tamil civilians in May of 2009,” wrote Julian. “Everyone should work together to ensure the murderers are brought to justice.”

    “I remember all those many months and years ago walking down those streets, and there were tens of thousands of people, just like there are here today, in front of the American embassy demanding that there be a peace. And I never saw such a disciplined and wonderful group in my entire life,” said Prue.

    He further added that everyone stood in solidarity and promoted the one message to everyone in Canada, despite having the feelings of “despair” and “despondency” because of friends and relatives “suffering in Sri Lanka.

    “You’re bringing the whole world’s attention here tonight. You are standing here united as one people to ask for justice, to ask for freedom and to ask for the international community to recognize what happened years ago because the world needs to know what happened there.”

    Sitsabaiesan, garnering a loud applause from the audience, spoke in both English and in Tamil where she said she “wanted to be one of the strong voices for those who have been marginalized” in Canada and in Sri Lanka.

    Due to the UN report and media coverage, the Tamils have been vindicated and have been proven correct because everything the report stated is what the Tamil community has been saying all along for the past two years.

    “The recent report from the UN panel of experts revealed to the world and revealed many of the atrocities that we all knew what was happening in the island of Sri Lanka for many, many decades,” said the newly elected NDP MP. “The war without witnesses that has taken place on the island finally has some international media coverage because of the United Nations report.”

  247. If you lie down with dogs, you will get up with fleas. So goes a popular saying. Norway did not heed this adage and chose to sleep with the Tigers. Today, it has become a haven for terrorists and finds itself in diplomatic hot water.

  248. THE ROOT CAUSE of the SINHALA elite’s evil is the Buddhism. Olcott came to Ceylon/Sri Lanka along with his mental retarded colleague Madame H.P.Blavatsky and conditioned the Sinhala people in terms of being proud (extreme proud) about being Sinhala and fed the POISON of Racial Superiority in 1880′s.

    There is a common perception among the most Sinhalese that their RACE is going to be EXTINCT within the next few decades and it needs a extra ordinary effort to save them from becoming extinct. THIS POISON was fed by BLAVATSKY and her cohort OLCOTT. So, they made all the efforts for REVIVALISM OF BUDDHISM and promoted the establishment of Buddhist schools and he even made efforts to impress the BRITISH rulers to prove that Sinhalese are a special race.

    Thus, he fed the poison of RACIAL SUPERIORITY to the minds of this people. It was from that moment that they began to promote and propagate to their communities about the REVIVAL of SINHALA BUDDHIST hegemony.

    With that poison in mind there came new leaders in likes of ANAGARIKA DHARMAPALA, F.R.Senanayake, Henry Pedris, SWRD Bandaranayake….and the recent one being Ven. SOMA. All these characters incited the Sinhalas to attack and destroy the other communities especially TAMILS & MUSLIMS. If you check in the history of Sri Lanka from year 1900, there were many pogroms unleashed to attack the said communities.

    So, they’re still carrying the mantle of H.P.Blavatsky & Olcott’s misguided Atheism propagated and supported by the book written by the H.P. Blavatsky “THE SECRET DOCTRINE” and it’s ideological RACISM.

    LOOK at what is happening now. They’re killing, non-stop. They can’t understand the importance of Universal Humanity preached by the Buddha. Instead, they took the misguidance to be the truth and basing everything with the RACE mindset.

    With the connotation of EXTINCTION of the Sinhala Race, it they who are trying to extinct the other races by violent means. You ask from any Sinhalas with regards to the OWNERSHIP of the country – They will say the’re the rightful owners.

    INFACT, this country was invaded by VIJAYA’s group (according to them) and snatched from KUWENI the original inhabitants and wiped them out of existence. This is their folklore. So, the killings didn’t change even after the advent of the Buddha. The wiping out still continues even in the advanced stages of the human history.

    There’s a big tide of opinion that is growing in the world against the GOSL at present. It is only a matter of time that it becomes a huge TSUNAMI and engulf the RACIST MINDSET of the ruling elites and their cohorts to realize the mistake they’ve been carrying through many stages of their history.

    DUTUGEMUNU is a name they always praise in their blood-thirsty ambition of always being the RULERS of this STOLEN ISLAND. Stolen from Kuweni.

  250. Negombo Catholics celebrate first Madhu festival today

    The first Negombo Madhu Festival will be held today following the two Novenas and Vespers. His Eminence Rt. Rev. Cardinal Dr Malcolm Ranjith and Rt. Rev. Fr. Patrick Perera, Episcopal Vicar of the Colombo Archdiocese have issued congratulatory messages for this special Madhu Feast, which will be organized on behalf of the lay Catholics by the Negombo Madhu Festival Organizing Committee headed by Dr. Jayalath Jayawardena, MP.

    On behalf of the Catholics living in Negombo, Dr. Jayawardena has made a request to His Lordship Rt. Rev. Dr. Rayappu Joseph, Bishop of Mannar to allocate a Madhu Festival for the people of Negombo, which is known as ‘little Rome’. The Bishop of Mannar has approved to have a Negombo Madhu Festival annually on the third Sunday of the month of May.

    The Festival Mass will be conducted by Rt. Rev. Fr. Victor Soosai, Vicar General of the Mannar Diocese and the Rt. Rev. Fr. Patrick Perera, Episcopal Vicar of the Colombo Archdiocese. The Festival Mass will be televised to 157 countries live via satellite TV.

  251. The World's Third Worst Idea – Diasporas have a legitimate role to play in national and international politics.

    "The notion that emigrant or diaspora communities have a special insight into the problems of their homeland, or a special moral or political status in regard to them, is wholly unfounded. Emigrant ethnic communities play almost always a negative, backward, at once hysterical and obstructive, role in resolving the conflicts of their countries of origin"

    The hysterically cretinous and obstructive behaviour of Sri Lanka's pro-Eelam diaspora mobs (aided and abetted by AI, HRW & ICG) prove beyond doubt that Prof. Halliday was absolutely right when he wrote these wise words in 2007.

  254. Mullivaikal http://www.lankanewsweb.com/ADS/Mullivaikal_Rem_2
    Over 146,000 Tamils unaccounted for, over 80,000 widowed, 40,000 Tamils killed, 25,000 children orphaned

    Mullivaikal: The Moment Of Deep Sorrow And Courage http://www.countercurrents.org/fernando210511.htm
    Today, we moan from the very depths of our hearts the deaths of thousands of Tamils who were killed in Mullivaikal as well as in other places. Who are they? They are our beautiful children, our courageous young sons and daughters, beloved parents and grandparents whose burial grounds we do not know.

    On this day, as a Sinhalese, let me remember not only the physical deaths of thousands of Tamils, but also the moral and spiritual death of the Sinhala nation to which I belong, a nation that has been built on the unknown graveyards of many thousands of my Tamil sisters and brothers.

    As Martin Luther King lamented over his own American nation during the war against the people of Vietnam; a nation which spends on warfare and not on healthcare, welfare and education of its people is spiritually and morally doomed.

    Mullivaikal does not mark the end of Tamil aspiration for nationhood, homeland and self-determination, but it marks another defeat of humanity.

    Anybody who has a conscience among the Sinhalese and in the international community needs to know that Vanni massacre of Tamils questions our humanity rather than the project of Tamil Eelam.

    Therefore, Mullivaikal is a historical moment in the dawn of the twentieth century that highly questions the humanity of this so called global village.

    This is the fundamental moral truth about Vanni massacre of Tamils.

    What is the political truth about Mullivaikal?

    Mullivaikal is the climax of the brutality of the Sri Lankan state which was first created by the British colonial rule and rebuilt again and again by every Sinhala ruling party after the so called independence in 1948.

    Are the Sinhalese unaware of the massacre of the Tamils for the last 60 years?

    Are they unaware of the massacre of the Tamils in 1983 and 2009?

    In 1983, the massacre was carried out by the unofficial thugs of the Sri Lankan state. In 2009, it was carried out by the official military of the same state with the full support of every major power in the international community.

    The Sinhala nation is aware of the massacres. If so as human beings how do they justify such brutality of the state? They justify it by playing the role of victimhood saying that it is they who were attacked and that they have a right to defend themselves as a state. Is that all? No, they go further claiming a moral obligation to conduct a humanitarian war to protect the Tamils from the LTTE. The same arguments can be seen when the USA argues for its invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan and when Israel argues for invasion of Palestine.

    Therefore, it is not right to say that the Sinhala nation does not know the massacres, but they cannot know because they have justified the massacres wholeheartedly in the name of the Sri Lankan state.

    Didn't the UN and the international community know about? Is it a mistake from their part not to reveal the truth about the massacres? No, it is not a mistake, it is a deliberate action taken by them to protect the Sri Lankan state. Therefore, their omission is not an error or a mistake, but a part of the crime against the Tamil people.

    Let me say one thing. It is true that the Tamils had to face the first genocidal massacre of the 21 st century, but this should not lead to a sense of helpless victimhood where the very forces who are responsible are seen to be saviours by the Tamils.

    It is the Tamil people who should decide what their future course of action should be. Let me echo the words of Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and many others who led the oppressed peoples. The path to justice can never be stopped as long as people are determined to walk the long walk to freedom…

    It is the paradox in the Sri Lankan history, that while the Sinhala nation celebrates the 2600 anniversary of Lord Buddha's Enlightenment the Tamils also have to remember the massacre of their loved ones on the 18 th of May this year. The most nonviolent preaching of Lord Buddha expressed compassion not only to every human being on earth but also to every creature, this preaching radically challenged and transformed kingdoms and societies promoting justice and peaceful coexistence in Asia. Could the Sinhala nation celebrate that Great Human Being's Enlightenment while the Sri Lankan state does not permit lighting a single candle in the Tamil homeland remembering the dear ones who were killed in Vanni?

    This paradox or irony is a shame on every human, moral and religious value we cherish. It is against the eternal dharma of Lord Buddha and every other founder of great ethical and religious traditions.

    By allowing the Sri Lankan state to oppress the Tamil people the Sinhala society has established a regime that destroys every form of democratic dissent. By building a prison for the Tamils, the Sinhalese have made their own chains. Let those who have ears listen, eyes see, tongues speak out!

    Finally, this day is not only a day of moaning and day of shame, but it is also a day of remembrance of courage of so many thousands of my Tamil brothers and sisters who upheld the dream of a dignified life until the last breath of their lives.

    Let that courage be our inspiration, so that our moaning will not end in a sense of helpless victimhood, but reinvigorate us to walk the journey towards the goal of justice, dignity and freedom as a people.

  255. Tamil genocide was planned by international powers: British academic http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=79&art
    This was not just any genocide; this was a genocide planned, including by the international powers, who knew what was going on, said Dr Andrew Higginbottom, the Principal Lecturer in Politics/Human Rights at Kingston University in London, taking part in the Mu'l'livaaykkaal Remembrance event in London on 18 May.

    Recalling that Diaspora Tamils did their part by alerting through their massive protests three years ago, the Kingston academic said that the world powers knowingly did nothing: “They have satellites, they have telecommunications, they created the political conditions for this massacre and genocide and they knew operationally what was exactly going on and they did nothing to stop it.”

    “Tamils deserve freedom, they deserve dignity and they deserve their independence, as they want. That is the right of any nation on earth. It is the right for the Tamils too,“ said Conservative MP Robert Halfon from Harlow, who addressed the participants at the London event of Mu'l'livaaykkaal Remembrance Day. Meanwhile, Lee Scott, a Conservative Member of Parliament for Ilford North, and an officer of the Conservative Friends of Israel group, said it was unacceptable for people not to know what had happened to their relatives, children and not to be able to live in peace and harmony with dignity. “I recently met with the SL High Commissioner and asked these questions. And I will continue to ask these questions,” he said and signed an appeal on the stage urging independent international investigations.

  257. 1/3 of the Tamil population escaped the country during 63 years of Genocide war. Under the ethnic cleansing policy of the Government, By barring Tamil to reach their own country, singhalla planned to grap their properties. They stopped Deual citizenship, they already stop the penson for Tamil Elders. singhella simply asked tamil pensioners to give their location sothat they will send them their. Those who gave the address outside the country never got penson afterwards. They took the monies from the bank which was left by Tamils who escaped the country.

    Foreigners Barred From Travelling North Sri Lanka http://www.tamileelamnews.com/2011/05/21/foreigne
    As we approached the Omanthai checkpoint I knew that this was the last check we would be put through. The last stage of a mammoth eight hour journey from Colombo which began at 9 pm the previous night.

    The early morning sun was relentless; however the thought of finally arriving in Jaffna was enough to make it bearable. As the bus stopped at the checkpoint and the army officer boarded to check ID cards, perhaps naively, it had never occurred to me that holding a British passport would signal the end of my journey. After all, the war was over, Sri Lanka had been ‘liberated,’ when going on trips to Kandy, Trincomalee and Sigiriya my British passport had never caused a problem, so why should it now?

    Ominously the female officer told me to get down from the bus and wait while she went to discuss with her peers what do with my passport, which was beginning to be looked at with some disdain by other army personnel at the checkpoint. Again naively, I presumed they would simply ask me the reasons and objectives for my journey and grant me permission to continue on. However I was mistaken, after a lot of phone calls and gesticulating from army personnel at the checkpoint, I was informed that foreign passport holders cannot go beyond the Omanthai checkpoint without Ministry of Defence clearance.

    A number of questions were buzzing around my head but the over-riding ones were why shouldn’t a foreigner be allowed to go to Jaffna? What’s the need for MOD clearance? I clearly wasn’t a threat so what’s the problem? These were all questions I had plenty of time to ponder whilst on the eight hour long bus ride back from Vavuniya to Colombo.

    Since the civil war ended in 2009, the government has made it as difficult as possible for tourists and foreign media to go up North and visit the conflict areas. Those hoping to go up to Jaffna and other parts of the North will find that if they are in possession of a foreign passport, it will be a decidedly arduous process for them to advance any further than Vavuniya. Since the war is said to be finished now, what does the government have to hide from the rest of the world?

    Finally, this day is not only a day of moaning and day of shame, but it is also a day of remembrance of courage of so many thousands of my Tamil brothers and sisters who upheld the dream of a dignified life until the last breath of their lives.

    Let that courage be our inspiration, so that our moaning will not end in a sense of helpless victimhood, but reinvigorate us to walk the journey towards the goal of justice, dignity and freedom as a people.

  260. Tamil genocide was planned by international powers: British academic http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=79&art
    This was not just any genocide; this was a genocide planned, including by the international powers, who knew what was going on, said Dr Andrew Higginbottom, the Principal Lecturer in Politics/Human Rights at Kingston University in London, taking part in the Mu'l'livaaykkaal Remembrance event in London on 18 May.

    Recalling that Diaspora Tamils did their part by alerting through their massive protests three years ago, the Kingston academic said that the world powers knowingly did nothing: “They have satellites, they have telecommunications, they created the political conditions for this massacre and genocide and they knew operationally what was exactly going on and they did nothing to stop it.”

    “Tamils deserve freedom, they deserve dignity and they deserve their independence, as they want. That is the right of any nation on earth. It is the right for the Tamils too,“ said Conservative MP Robert Halfon from Harlow, who addressed the participants at the London event of Mu'l'livaaykkaal Remembrance Day. Meanwhile, Lee Scott, a Conservative Member of Parliament for Ilford North, and an officer of the Conservative Friends of Israel group, said it was unacceptable for people not to know what had happened to their relatives, children and not to be able to live in peace and harmony with dignity. “I recently met with the SL High Commissioner and asked these questions. And I will continue to ask these questions,” he said and signed an appeal on the stage urging independent international investigations.

    As we approached the Omanthai checkpoint I knew that this was the last check we would be put through. The last stage of a mammoth eight hour journey from Colombo which began at 9 pm the previous night.

    The early morning sun was relentless; however the thought of finally arriving in Jaffna was enough to make it bearable. As the bus stopped at the checkpoint and the army officer boarded to check ID cards, perhaps naively, it had never occurred to me that holding a British passport would signal the end of my journey. After all, the war was over, Sri Lanka had been ‘liberated,’ when going on trips to Kandy, Trincomalee and Sigiriya my British passport had never caused a problem, so why should it now?

    Ominously the female officer told me to get down from the bus and wait while she went to discuss with her peers what do with my passport, which was beginning to be looked at with some disdain by other army personnel at the checkpoint. Again naively, I presumed they would simply ask me the reasons and objectives for my journey and grant me permission to continue on. However I was mistaken, after a lot of phone calls and gesticulating from army personnel at the checkpoint, I was informed that foreign passport holders cannot go beyond the Omanthai checkpoint without Ministry of Defence clearance.

    A number of questions were buzzing around my head but the over-riding ones were why shouldn’t a foreigner be allowed to go to Jaffna? What’s the need for MOD clearance? I clearly wasn’t a threat so what’s the problem? These were all questions I had plenty of time to ponder whilst on the eight hour long bus ride back from Vavuniya to Colombo.

    Since the civil war ended in 2009, the government has made it as difficult as possible for tourists and foreign media to go up North and visit the conflict areas. Those hoping to go up to Jaffna and other parts of the North will find that if they are in possession of a foreign passport, it will be a decidedly arduous process for them to advance any further than Vavuniya. Since the war is said to be finished now, what does the government have to hide from the rest of the world?

  264. The World’s Third Worst Idea – Diasporas have a legitimate role to play in national and international politics.

    “The notion that emigrant or diaspora communities have a special insight into the problems of their homeland, or a special moral or political status in regard to them, is wholly unfounded. Emigrant ethnic communities play almost always a negative, backward, at once hysterical and obstructive, role in resolving the conflicts of their countries of origin”

    The hysterically cretinous and obstructive behaviour of Sri Lanka’s pro-Eelam diaspora mobs (aided and abetted by AI, HRW & ICG) prove beyond doubt that Prof. Halliday was absolutely right when he wrote these wise words in 2007.

  265. I think this May 2011 is a great event for Sri Lanka. It coincides the SL POLITICIAN'S bogus piety on the so called 2600th Year Anniversary of Buddhism. It is not even important or useful to anyone except the ones who promote the Killings of human beings while singing the gathas (Buddhist hymns).

    What a tribute for the day 18th of MAY 2011. One part of humanity is suffering and mourning the thousands of dead relatives and the part celebrating the victory over the antagonists and their mass death in the war front. DOES BUDDHISM fit into these orgy in anyway?????? I don't think so.

    IT is the guys who are in the saffron robes chant gathas and by the same token chant DEATH to anyone opposed to their "Thanha" for this world. It is even comical to see the passion when these war mongering politicians and monks talk of the PRAISE OF ENLIGHTENMENT…… Bulshit! if the enlightenment did not lift them to a higher levels of humanity and eternally keep them in ANIMALISED form to "protect" their progeny, do you think this PHILOSOPHY will benefit anyone??? It is not even beneficial for themselves.

    They themselves DEBUNKED the so called "Enlightenment" and "kind towards all living being" …craps. It is a dead philosophy for it can't free their own kind from the worst human lows like, GREED, JEALOUSY, LIES, DECEPTIONS, HARM TO OTHERS….etc.

    No amount of Buddha statues & stupas built around the country is going to redeem this lot from their collective SINS accumulated throughout the centuries. LET's see how they're going to transform themselves into the type of HUMANKIND the Buddha was preaching them to be.

    Naaaaaaaaah! I don't think they're ever going to change from that. If then, Buddhism may prevail all over the world. I mean, who wants a PHILOSOPHY THAT CANNOT BE PRACTICED but can only be preached??? Just forget it.

  267. Mullivaikal
    http://www.lankanewsweb.com/ADS/Mullivaikal_Rem_2011_English.html
    Over 146,000 Tamils unaccounted for, over 80,000 widowed, 40,000 Tamils killed, 25,000 children orphaned

    Mullivaikal: The Moment Of Deep Sorrow And Courage
    http://www.countercurrents.org/fernando210511.htm
    Today, we moan from the very depths of our hearts the deaths of thousands of Tamils who were killed in Mullivaikal as well as in other places. Who are they? They are our beautiful children, our courageous young sons and daughters, beloved parents and grandparents whose burial grounds we do not know.

    On this day, as a Sinhalese, let me remember not only the physical deaths of thousands of Tamils, but also the moral and spiritual death of the Sinhala nation to which I belong, a nation that has been built on the unknown graveyards of many thousands of my Tamil sisters and brothers.

    As Martin Luther King lamented over his own American nation during the war against the people of Vietnam; a nation which spends on warfare and not on healthcare, welfare and education of its people is spiritually and morally doomed.

    Mullivaikal does not mark the end of Tamil aspiration for nationhood, homeland and self-determination, but it marks another defeat of humanity.

    Anybody who has a conscience among the Sinhalese and in the international community needs to know that Vanni massacre of Tamils questions our humanity rather than the project of Tamil Eelam.

    Therefore, Mullivaikal is a historical moment in the dawn of the twentieth century that highly questions the humanity of this so called global village.

    This is the fundamental moral truth about Vanni massacre of Tamils.

    What is the political truth about Mullivaikal?

    Mullivaikal is the climax of the brutality of the Sri Lankan state which was first created by the British colonial rule and rebuilt again and again by every Sinhala ruling party after the so called independence in 1948.

    Are the Sinhalese unaware of the massacre of the Tamils for the last 60 years?

    Are they unaware of the massacre of the Tamils in 1983 and 2009?

    In 1983, the massacre was carried out by the unofficial thugs of the Sri Lankan state. In 2009, it was carried out by the official military of the same state with the full support of every major power in the international community.

    The Sinhala nation is aware of the massacres. If so as human beings how do they justify such brutality of the state? They justify it by playing the role of victimhood saying that it is they who were attacked and that they have a right to defend themselves as a state. Is that all? No, they go further claiming a moral obligation to conduct a humanitarian war to protect the Tamils from the LTTE. The same arguments can be seen when the USA argues for its invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan and when Israel argues for invasion of Palestine.

    Therefore, it is not right to say that the Sinhala nation does not know the massacres, but they cannot know because they have justified the massacres wholeheartedly in the name of the Sri Lankan state.

    Didn’t the UN and the international community know about? Is it a mistake from their part not to reveal the truth about the massacres? No, it is not a mistake, it is a deliberate action taken by them to protect the Sri Lankan state. Therefore, their omission is not an error or a mistake, but a part of the crime against the Tamil people.

    Let me say one thing. It is true that the Tamils had to face the first genocidal massacre of the 21 st century, but this should not lead to a sense of helpless victimhood where the very forces who are responsible are seen to be saviours by the Tamils.

    It is the Tamil people who should decide what their future course of action should be. Let me echo the words of Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and many others who led the oppressed peoples. The path to justice can never be stopped as long as people are determined to walk the long walk to freedom…

    It is the paradox in the Sri Lankan history, that while the Sinhala nation celebrates the 2600 anniversary of Lord Buddha’s Enlightenment the Tamils also have to remember the massacre of their loved ones on the 18 th of May this year. The most nonviolent preaching of Lord Buddha expressed compassion not only to every human being on earth but also to every creature, this preaching radically challenged and transformed kingdoms and societies promoting justice and peaceful coexistence in Asia. Could the Sinhala nation celebrate that Great Human Being’s Enlightenment while the Sri Lankan state does not permit lighting a single candle in the Tamil homeland remembering the dear ones who were killed in Vanni?

    This paradox or irony is a shame on every human, moral and religious value we cherish. It is against the eternal dharma of Lord Buddha and every other founder of great ethical and religious traditions.

    By allowing the Sri Lankan state to oppress the Tamil people the Sinhala society has established a regime that destroys every form of democratic dissent. By building a prison for the Tamils, the Sinhalese have made their own chains. Let those who have ears listen, eyes see, tongues speak out!

    Finally, this day is not only a day of moaning and day of shame, but it is also a day of remembrance of courage of so many thousands of my Tamil brothers and sisters who upheld the dream of a dignified life until the last breath of their lives.

    Let that courage be our inspiration, so that our moaning will not end in a sense of helpless victimhood, but reinvigorate us to walk the journey towards the goal of justice, dignity and freedom as a people.

    One sure way to keep a national genocide out of world view is to slay the journalists who would reveal the information.

    Sri Lanka's president subscribes to this idea and as a result, from the time he took office in 2005 until the 2009, when the Sri Lankan government crushed the Tamil resistance; between 20,000 and 100,000 people were killed. By some accounts up to 146,000 Tamil people were disappeared or killed. Severe incidents of cruelty were widely reported and documented

    One of the first things Sri Lanka Pres. Mahinda Rajapaksa did after entering office, was shatter the fragile peace that existed in his country.

    This was one thought on the minds of Tamil people and their supporters this week, as they observed the Tamil Genocide of Sri Lanka that culminated in 2009 at the conclusion of the country's long-running civil war.

    A western-backed program to classify Tamil people serving in the LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamileelam) as 'terrorists' allowed the Sri Lankan government's slaughter of tens of thousands of civilians as well as military prisoners of war.

    Japans tsunami and the parallels of Tamil Genocide in Sri Lanka http://truthdive.com/2011/05/22/japan-paying-dear
    Many wonder, is there any connection between “Tamil Genocide” in Sri Lanka and the “Earthquake cum Tsunami” in Japan? Japan’s twin natural disaster followed by the huge blasts that has caused further damages at nuclear power plants and fears of a nuclear meltdown may have some parallels with the genocidal war in this other tiny island nation in the Asian continent. Before scrutinizing the role of Japan in the genocide of the Tamils in Sri Lanka, let me extend my heartfelt condolences to the people of Japan in the wake of a record-breaking earthquake there that triggered a tsunami.
    O oppressive nation
    So many atrocities
    You committed on my Tamil Race

    In so many ways we begged, moved
    Fell at your feet, cried and self immolated
    In vain.

    For You who turned deaf ears
    I have a last word to tell.

    On seeing our infants
    Wilted and dead out of hunger, I
    With swollen eyes Delirious sleep
    Untied hair, out of my inner blaze
    Throw a Black curse.

    From the land of Kannagi
    Grown on the rules of Kural
    Living a righteous life
    I can sing a Virtue.

    You made me to call you a “Demon”
    From the same mouth
    Which called you “Mother”
    We are not the same anymore.

    O oppressive
    You supplied weapons
    Sent spy crafts
    To drop bombs
    Descending on innocent heads
    Let your head explode
    To hundreds of pieces.

    For the souls of our children
    Died asking for a drop of water
    To rest in peace
    Let all your rivers dry up
    For a century to come
    Let your clouds quickly disperse
    To far away lands.

    You pushed us to run
    For a handful of Rice.
    Let your fields and forests
    Burn down.
    Whichever grains harvested
    Shall go waste.

    You chased our people
    Like herds.
    Let all your mountains
    erupt like volcanoes
    to become a mount of ashes.

    O the devils who mercilessly
    Dropped chemical bombs
    Let your blood dry
    Let your smell
    Burn your neighbors too
    Let your foes surround you
    To take away your sleep.

    Let bombs explode,
    Strewn with bodies
    Let all your streets
    Become a grave yard.

    Let cancer grow
    In those mouths
    Which shamelessly announced
    False demands for cease fire.
    Let you vomit blood
    Whenever you open the mouth.

    You ruled sitting over our skeletons
    Let your chairs
    Breakdown.

    Let your men become impotent
    Let the wombs of your women be torn.
    You humiliated our people
    Made them Wander nude.
    Let your parents turn mad
    And run on the streets
    Tearing their cloth.

    You tortured our youth
    Sending electric shocks
    Let the lightning and thunder
    Fall on your head.

    You celebrated from the
    Palaces of Sinhalas
    Who raped our sisters
    Let your food turn toxic.
    And Let your women
    sleep with neighbors.

    You cannibals
    Let all your nerves
    Stretch out of your body.

    Let no grass or plant
    Ever crop out of your soil
    For another millennia.

    Let tsunami erupt
    To take away all.
    Let your place disappear
    Let it be destroyed
    With nothing forever.

    (PS. I cannot curse your babies
    Wherever may be
    Babies are just babies
    When our babies cry
    Let your babies smile
    Let your babies smile)

  274. Slaughter of Pro-Tamil Journalists Dimmed World's View of Sri Lanka Genocide. http://www.salem-news.com/articles/may212011/tami

    One sure way to keep a national genocide out of world view is to slay the journalists who would reveal the information.

    Sri Lanka's president subscribes to this idea and as a result, from the time he took office in 2005 until the 2009, when the Sri Lankan government crushed the Tamil resistance; between 20,000 and 100,000 people were killed. By some accounts up to 146,000 Tamil people were disappeared or killed. Severe incidents of cruelty were widely reported and documented

    One of the first things Sri Lanka Pres. Mahinda Rajapaksa did after entering office, was shatter the fragile peace that existed in his country.

    This was one thought on the minds of Tamil people and their supporters this week, as they observed the Tamil Genocide of Sri Lanka that culminated in 2009 at the conclusion of the country's long-running civil war.

    A western-backed program to classify Tamil people serving in the LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamileelam) as 'terrorists' allowed the Sri Lankan government's slaughter of tens of thousands of civilians as well as military prisoners of war.

    Japans tsunami and the parallels of Tamil Genocide in Sri Lanka http://truthdive.com/2011/05/22/japan-paying-dear
    Many wonder, is there any connection between “Tamil Genocide” in Sri Lanka and the “Earthquake cum Tsunami” in Japan? Japan’s twin natural disaster followed by the huge blasts that has caused further damages at nuclear power plants and fears of a nuclear meltdown may have some parallels with the genocidal war in this other tiny island nation in the Asian continent. Before scrutinizing the role of Japan in the genocide of the Tamils in Sri Lanka, let me extend my heartfelt condolences to the people of Japan in the wake of a record-breaking earthquake there that triggered a tsunami.
    O oppressive nation
    So many atrocities
    You committed on my Tamil Race

    In so many ways we begged, moved
    Fell at your feet, cried and self immolated
    In vain.

    For You who turned deaf ears
    I have a last word to tell.

    On seeing our infants
    Wilted and dead out of hunger, I
    With swollen eyes Delirious sleep
    Untied hair, out of my inner blaze
    Throw a Black curse.

    From the land of Kannagi
    Grown on the rules of Kural
    Living a righteous life
    I can sing a Virtue.

    You made me to call you a “Demon”
    From the same mouth
    Which called you “Mother”
    We are not the same anymore.

    O oppressive
    You supplied weapons
    Sent spy crafts
    To drop bombs
    Descending on innocent heads
    Let your head explode
    To hundreds of pieces.

    For the souls of our children
    Died asking for a drop of water

    http://truthdive.com/2011/05/22/japan-paying-dear

    Here is a sneak preview

    Guess what? Who fund the genocidal war on Tamil population in Sri Lanka? None other than Japan.
    Japan has a significant business interest in Tamil areas in the North and East of Sri Lanka. These regions are known to be rich in mineral- Illuminate, which is an important raw material used for the production of IC chips and electronic components

    In fact the Japanese language is similar to Tamil and the Japanese culture has identified with Tamil culture very well. Tamil movies made from India are loved by Japanese fans and hence you would assume that the common man and women from Japan would naturally sympathize with the suffering Tamils

    http://tinyurl.com/3htlpl2

    Sri Lanka is NOT expected to attend this annual gathering after its own population of tigers was cruelly decimated in May 2009.

    ps. @Aathy: in your own words: "…so that our moaning will not end in a sense of helpless victimhood, but reinvigorate us to walk the journey towards the goal of justice, dignity and freedom as a people."

    Can you please go and moan somewhere else? You can also increase your sense of victim hood, complain about the lack of justice for terror supporters, moan a bit more about losing your dignity (er.. that was lost a long, long time ago:) ) and moan even more pitifully that no-one really cares for your lost cause.

    Happy Moaning Month. I really love the month of May, don't you?

  278. Oh, pillayan
    A war will not end without the delivery of political justice to the core issue. Even the winners who waged World Wars for the monopoly of colonies couldn’t escape conceding independence to colonies. USA and India bungling political justice to the national question in the island will have a bearing on Afghan War, Western Civilisation and on Indian integrity. The solidarity of Eezham Tamil diaspora is as important a trump as the geopolitical trump of Sri Lanka. In its historic duty to its nation and to civilisation, the diaspora without succumbing to lures should intensely align with the people of Tamil Nadu and progressive Sinhalese in realising political justice and in seeing no others ever suffer like Eezham Tamils. The last diplomatic chance for the USA and India to make ‘strategic partnership’ a smooth affair is to jointly uphold the balance of nations in the island.

    In support of the US assassinating Bin Laden (and the attendant civilian deaths), Wiesel says:

    "The execution of a human being—any human being—should never be an event to be celebrated. Death—anyone’s—must be taken seriously, thoughtfully.
    This time is different. … I, too, shared in the collective response of so many Americans: “He got what he deserved.” He committed too many crimes, too many murders— he caused too much suffering—for his death to arouse pity or sadness.

    By his actions, he [Osama] gave up any right to human compassion.
    Sadly, he was not the only one put at risk by the American operation. There were others. Among them, children. And children are never guilty. Still, it was bin Laden himself who placed them in harm’s way.

    The Asian Net movement had published its opinion that the people in the Southern part of Sri Lanka are enjoying after the second successful year, on completion of war, but still the northern people are living with fear and without any facilities to upkeep their living standards.

    Among the displaced and resettled people, approximately 48 persons had committed suicide. The displaced people are affected severely by education and they are unable to get settled in their native lands due to the impound by Sri Lankan troops. Still Tamil people are getting lost are the incidents recorded. The forces are engaged in business by the constructions of more than 60 luxury hotels in the A9 road, from Omanthai to Palai localities. The areas which were informed that are released after war, is still not economically developed, but only new building structures have cropped up. The women, who had lost their husbands in the Mannar district, are involved in difficult jobs in the necessity of looking after their families were mentioned by the movement.

    War Crimes – Why India Backs Sri Lanka’s stand http://www.tamileelamnews.com/2011/05/21/war-crim
    If the international investigation starts it will lead to examination of the role of India in aiding Srilankan war crimes. If such evidences are established, the European countries may use that to checkmate India’s aspirations. Father Jeghat explained the above strategies in detail. If such a situation develops much depends on the surfacing of evidences of Indian support to Srilanka during the war.

  294. Singa has gone away to scrutinize the role of Japan in the genocide of the Tamils in Sri Lanka

    http://truthdive.com/2011/05/22/japan-paying-dearly-for-its-role-in-the-tamil-genocide-in-sri-lanka.html

    Here is a sneak preview

    Guess what? Who fund the genocidal war on Tamil population in Sri Lanka? None other than Japan.
    Japan has a significant business interest in Tamil areas in the North and East of Sri Lanka. These regions are known to be rich in mineral- Illuminate, which is an important raw material used for the production of IC chips and electronic components

    In fact the Japanese language is similar to Tamil and the Japanese culture has identified with Tamil culture very well. Tamil movies made from India are loved by Japanese fans and hence you would assume that the common man and women from Japan would naturally sympathize with the suffering Tamils

  295. Tamils not benefited at all, even though war has come to an end in Sri lanka – Forces engaged in business. http://www.lankasrinews.com/view.php?22mAC0302XlO

    The Asian Net movement had published its opinion that the people in the Southern part of Sri Lanka are enjoying after the second successful year, on completion of war, but still the northern people are living with fear and without any facilities to upkeep their living standards.

    Among the displaced and resettled people, approximately 48 persons had committed suicide. The displaced people are affected severely by education and they are unable to get settled in their native lands due to the impound by Sri Lankan troops. Still Tamil people are getting lost are the incidents recorded. The forces are engaged in business by the constructions of more than 60 luxury hotels in the A9 road, from Omanthai to Palai localities. The areas which were informed that are released after war, is still not economically developed, but only new building structures have cropped up. The women, who had lost their husbands in the Mannar district, are involved in difficult jobs in the necessity of looking after their families were mentioned by the movement.

    If the international investigation starts it will lead to examination of the role of India in aiding Srilankan war crimes. If such evidences are established, the European countries may use that to checkmate India’s aspirations. Father Jeghat explained the above strategies in detail. If such a situation develops much depends on the surfacing of evidences of Indian support to Srilanka during the war.

  297. Hot News! It’s the world famous Tiger Meet.

    http://tinyurl.com/3htlpl2

    Sri Lanka is NOT expected to attend this annual gathering after its own population of tigers was cruelly decimated in May 2009.

    ps. @Aathy: in your own words: “…so that our moaning will not end in a sense of helpless victimhood, but reinvigorate us to walk the journey towards the goal of justice, dignity and freedom as a people.”

    Can you please go and moan somewhere else? You can also increase your sense of victim hood, complain about the lack of justice for terror supporters, moan a bit more about losing your dignity (er.. that was lost a long, long time ago:) ) and moan even more pitifully that no-one really cares for your lost cause.

    Happy Moaning Month. I really love the month of May, don’t you?

  298. This is the day, the virulent ethnic cleansing pogroms perpetrated against our people by the odious Sri Lankan Government, culminated in the most number of tragic deaths in Mullivaikkal and brought the most debilitating sorrow and sadness, not only to the people of Tamil Ealam but to all Tamils all over the world.

    This day, soaked in the blood of Eelam Tamils, shall bear witness in history to the misdeeds of the murderous tentacles of the Sinhala State that clawed all the way through Southern Tamil Ealam to corner our helpless civilians in Mullivaikkal and commit Genocide of gargantuan proportions.

    This day the de facto state of Tamil Eelam, built on the valor and sacrifice of our heroes, and ably led by the Tamil National Leader Mr. V. Pirapaharan; the de facto state that provided the space to articulate the political aspirations of the Tamil people, came under total occupation by the Sinhala State.

    This day, with its indelible stains of Tamil blood, marks the culmination of those mournful days when the fascist Sinhala diabolarchy rained an Armageddon of cluster bombs on our people, simply destroying 80,000 civilians in a matter of days and shocked the civilized world into disbelief.

    On this day, the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam remembers with profound respect all those innocent souls of Tamil Ealam that became collateral damage in the mindboggling designs of a mindless Sinhalese aggressor. Today, we will fondly remember and pay our obsequies to our freedom fighters who sacrificed their lives in their valiant efforts to forestall the Sinhala aggression.

    Now, for the benefit of posterity, it becomes incumbent upon me to delve a little into the circumstances that led to declaration of this day as the National Mourning Day of Tamil Eelam.

    In those last days of the armed struggle, the day-to-day existence of our people had been so completely trampled upon as had been witnessed never before in our history, so much so that, their lives brimmed with nothing other than debilitating sorrow, sufferings, and disasters.

    Those were days when our people were chased down and murdered anywhere and everywhere – in their homes and in the streets, in the temples and in the hospitals, in wedding ceremonies and in funereal services- there was no place to hunker down if you were a Tamil – no place was a safe haven if you were a Tamil.

    Those were the days they were hunted down and killed at any time and at all times – regardless of what they were engaged in. They were killed while they were walking and while they were lying down, they were killed when they were eating and they were killed when they were learning, they were killed while they were asleep and they were killed while they were in bed. There wasn’t anything that you could do with peace of mind – No activity was a safe activity there if you were a Tamil.

    In the same way one would gather a pile of garbage together and set it on fire, just the same way one would gather a bunch bed bugs and trample upon them, the Sinhalese tyranny cornered the helpless Tamils into a tiny strip by the beachhead of Mullivaikkal and pulverized their life out of existence.

    The mindless acts of genocide on our land and our people shall remain as a collective memory of the Tamil people for generations to come.

    It is in this regard, in order to remember in its proper perspective the disaster and destruction that enveloped the people of Tamil Eelam that the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam has ordained May 18 each year as a National Day of Mourning. In order to enable all Tamils of our Homeland and of Diaspora to reflect on these events, share in the grief of a Nation and to derive inspiration from the valiant efforts of a people that would not surrender, it has also decreed that every year, henceforward, the days from May 12 to May 18 shall be observed as the Week of National Remembrance.

    The term “Mullivaikkal” has burrowed itself a deep hole but a tender one in the national psyche of a people. Just as “holocaust” holds a very tender, special place in the collective memory of the Jewish people, so will the term” Mullivaikkal” hold a special place in the collective memory not only of Eelam Tamils but of all Tamils all over the world. It is a special word that shall bear witness to the Genocide that was unleashed on the hapless Eelam Tamils.

    The sorrowful, disturbing and heart-rending collective memories do have a special way of entrenching deep in the psyche of a wounded people. They have the ability to bring transformational changes to the lives of a suffering people. It was a genocide that brought home the reality of a separate homeland to the Jewish people. It is only through nurturing their collective memories through many generations and channeling it through the dynamic of a political movement that the Palestinian people are now getting ready to greet a new dawn in their homeland. These two anecdotes of history shall hold well and serve the Tamils too in their struggle for their homeland.

    The National Mourning Day is not a day for weeping and wilting. It is the day to reflect and resolve. It is the day to absorb and utilize the sadness and sorrow to re-energize and reinvigorate ourselves in our determination to secure a free, sovereign, independent State of Tamil Eelam in order to live as a nation with security and self respect. And, secure it ever, we shall!

    The National Mourning day is not a day for drooping and recoiling. It is the day to absorb and utilize our many frustrations and disappointments to give ourselves a new impetus to forge ahead with a new resolve and renewed determination to bring those culprits of murder and mayhem to justice and to bring justice to our people. And bring it ever, we shall!

    The National Mourning Day is not a day to get stultified by the mindboggling destruction brought to our shore by the Sinhala army. It is not a day to get overwhelmed by doom and gloom. It is a day to reflect upon the supreme need to sacrifice for the sake of our people. It is the day to refocus our energies to rebuild the homesteads and livelihoods of a people that have lost everything.

    The Mullivaikkal massacre and the subsequent events that have followed in its wake have only helped to underline the fact that the need of the moment for Tamils of Eelam is the separate State of Tamil Eelam. And we say today here that parting of ways is the only way forward!

    It is an accepted norm in international law, covenants and practice that a nation that had suffered Genocide does have a right of remedy and relief through the exercise of their right to self-preservation, a sovereign State of their own. But, in reality, all these laws and practices come into effect only when the powerful states desire so. They take decisions based only on their self interest and not on the principle of justice and fair-play for all. Inevitably, the journey towards our goal has to be made within the parameters of this order of the world. This is the most powerful challenge we are envisaging right now. The enormity of the challenge is such that there is no need to emphasize the importance and imperative to utilize every opportunity that presents itself to us. We shall seize them without fail.

    It is in this light that the recently released Report of the UNSG Panel has to be considered as an opportunity. It provides us with some glowing opportunities and some stultifying impediments. It has meticulously demarcated and delineated all the war crimes perpetuated by the Sri Lankan political and military hierarchies on our people. It has also underlined the fact that it is unable to determine the fate 140,000 Tamils in the aftermath of the war. Yet, the Report inexplicably and astoundingly fails to categorize all these failings as an act of Genocide.

    That, of the five main categories of Sri Lankan excesses, four fall into the general classification of genocide by nature has been documented in no uncertain terms, yet there has been no unambiguous call for committing the perpetrators to the International Criminal Court is a bit puzzling. Large scale targeted shelling, targeting into a no-fire zone, knowingly targeting hospitals and other humanitarian objects, systematically depriving the people in the conflict zone of basic human needs, depriving from humanitarian aid, all the other human rights excesses committed by the Sri Lankan Government – these have all been pointed out in the report – the above actions directed by the military and political command of the Sri Lankan Government comprising almost exclusively Sinhalese against the Tamil civilians and therefore clearly establish that genocide has been planned and perpetrated by the political and military command. Furthermore, the Panel has gathered additional evidence which discloses that the policies of the Sri Lankan government immediately after the war subjected the Tamil population to torture, forcible imprisonment and other denials of human rights. Such persecutory and discriminatory conduct was based entirely on the ethnicity of people. We also note that based on recent international as well as national jurisprudence, the act of genocide can and has taken place in a limited geographic zone. The intent and important component of the act of genocide can be inferred from the scale and the nature of the operation. Based on information in the panel report these components of the crime of genocide are present. Yet there has been hesitancy in pointing them out as crimes of Genocide.

    To the extent the Panel has purposely desisted from using the word “Genocide” which was clearly reflected on all major turns of events catalogued in the report, we have to question the purposefulness of the report. Therefore, it is even more incumbent upon us now, to establish in the international arena that the crimes committed by the Sri Lankan Government are indeed crimes of Genocide. We have to go out and forestall the currently on-going international diplomatic maneuvers of the Sri Lankan Government to discredit in toto, the UNSG Panel report.

    We are working on the realization that we have to create a strong international opinion that basing on this report there are additional actions to be taken against the Sri Lankan Government. The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam is working on the realization that we have to raise the sympathies of the international community to a level which will be harder for anyone to resist so that no one will be able to throw the Panel’s Report into the garbage bin. We know our motives are genuine, we know our ambitions are modest and reasonable, and we know that in the end, justice shall be delivered to our people. http://www.tamilcanadian.com/article/6106

  299. Watch Sinhala Terrorists in Action Says:
    May 20th, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    Hello there Retarded terrorist !!

    First of all, use your own creativity, I called you retards and proved that you are retards – so, don't try to see my image when you look in the mirroe. You don't have the balls to stand up for your own selves and that's not my problem.

    If talking of Karuna, Pillayan, Neelan T, Alfred D, Lakshman K, Kuma P and all the other Murdered Tamil Politicians by the LTTE is being deperate, Please tell me how less desperate you retards are talking of a killing of only a single Retarded terrorist who unfortunately is a Tamil who killed Tamils and became a curse to the Tamils?? – This is where I have proven that you talk from your rectums !!

    According to you, only Prabaharan was the true Tamil.. All other Tamils who opposed are desperate ?? We are talking of 1 Terrorist movement of LTTE against several legal political movements of Tamils – if all tamils share your views, there would have been no issue and hands down Eelam to you – But, Tamils are intelligent and not retards like you – That's why you killed those intelligent and wel educated Tamils. Because U R retards.

    If people don't remember Pillayan and Karuna, why did they get votes in plentyful during elections ??? They won the elections legitimately and with the votes of the Tamil, Singhala and Muslim people…. Why couldn't Prabha do that ?? Why did he cut the hand of the Tamil Gentleman who went to cast the vote ???? This is where you retards need to accept the fact that Prabha himself was a retarded and a terrorist. This is where you retards cannot run away or wash your hands off…. You were involved in Terrorism someway and it still continues – you are dangerous to the human race. .

    Also, do not forget the thousands of Tamils who left LTTE along with Karuna & Pillayan…. I don't think they have forgotten anything either. You are stupid enough to call them traitors – What do you wish to call retarded Prabha after he killed so many Innocent Tamils ??? I don't care about individuals of other countries, I know how popular Prabha was here in Colombo among Tamil People – They would have Shat on his grave if he was buried – Thank the GoSL for cremating and throwing his ashes to the sea… His graveyard would have been one of the smelliest places if not.

    dude – don't tell me you are not an LTTE supporter – we are talking of the LTTE because this report clearly says that the LTTE are equally guilty of war crimes.

    OK – let's start fresh – Retarded Prabha is Dead and gone and Thank GoSL for that !! What are these atrocities you are talking of ???? When is the last time you visited Sri Lanka?? – have you been to Wellawatte recently?? Have you been to Any place in Baticaloa recently or Have you been to the North ?? Are you hallucinating or is it just your imagination or are you being true to your self of being a retard ??? We see, associate and socialize with individuals from all Ethnic groups and we don't see any descrimination. People play for the same teams, Drink the same Bottle, Go to the same Curch, Kovil and Temple, Take medication in the same hospitals, work for the same companies, dine at the same restaurents, travel in the same busses, walk on the same streets witout any discrimination based on Ethnicity or any other factor for that matter. so, how did you come to the conclusion of all negatives ?? Who lied to you or as I mentioned, are you being true to yourself and being a true retard??

    I think Mango explained how the "Development" has helped people of the former War Zones to build their businesses and Livehoods. So, your argument of locals not getting any benefit is flushed down the toilet !! (if you still need clarifications, go on google and search for Development in SL after war – north and east) Unless you are expecting the people there to get a million Dollars from their business starting Day 1 and the infrstructure that was destroyed by the retarded LTTE to be put back to normal with the wave of a Magic Wand. (I will not be surprised if you think it could happen – Usually retards do have these Fantacies – Mastabatory Fantacies :) ) We all see the development in the East after 5 years and North, being larger land mass, might take a few more years than that to come to the current levels experienced in East – Money Matters too ha ??

    You tell us not to talk of the LTTE and say that your 'Loved One's Burial Sites" – what a joke – Did they forcefully take your children to war and hung Cyanide capsules around the neck because they 'Love You So Much" ??

    You say that the schools were asked to build wesak stuff and you are not Buddhist – Let me ask you, why do people in Colombo Decorate for Chirstmas even if they are not Christians ?? This is a part of living in a Multicultural society. Muslims in Indonesia Lit candles at Borobudur – for what ????? In Malaysia there were celebrations and even in the United Nations they had a celebration – Thanks to a great Tamil – Lakshman Kadiragamar who made Wesak a world event who himself was not a Buddhist.. Has the LTTE made you sound so dumb not to respect another belief. I do not wish to comment on them, but, I saw many posts slamming Buddhism – how Blind are we ?? Isn't it the So called hindu's who do not Eat meat that planted Bombs all over Sri Lanka to kill innocent civilians ??? Again it proves my point of you being some retarded lunetics – trying to hit with anyting that you hands can cling on to, but, not knowing that it is a Boomarang that basically came back to cut your own throat – LOL !! You don't see me or mango blaming Hindu's or Christaisn or Islamists or even Tamils or Muslims for what happened – we blame the retarded terrorists and their supporters. I always say this – Terorists do not have an Ethnic group, Relegion, Colour and most importantly Brains – they are not human and should not be mistaken for anything related to any ethnic group or belief.

    All your examples are also Bullshit – we know of a rape case that happened sometime back and the army soldier is still in Jail. Your claim on the Eastern Uni is utter Bullshit. You are trying to paint a false picture where you say that the SL army in the north basically run riot and no one is taking any action ?? How can that be when thousands of colombo people visit these areas on a daily basis ?? Do you think that our gus will shut their mouths if injustice happens from whoever ?? These are all utter lies – either you are making them up or you are believing someone who is lying to you. Think logically you moron – can it actually happen continously as you say without anyone not knowing and taking action against – rubbish ??

    99% Tamils might bullshit to a singhalees Buddhist, but, they will not Bullshit to a Tamil ha ?? Do you think Lakshman K lied during his time to be with the Singhala Buddhists or is he a 1% ? How about Neelan T and all the other tamil leaders and their followers ?? Are they 1% ??? Again, your logical brains have failed you missrably. Also, what made you to think so surely that My self and Mango are Singhala Buddhists ??

    Your reply is the same that we have seen posted by So many – all fart no shit… Baseless, Full of Lies, no proof, heard all over (U did not have to tell us, we already heard) – Tell us something new – prove it. If you truely want to stand for tamils, help them and not try to put them down – They lived a shitty life for the past 30 years with LTTE depriving their basic rights. Now they are re-building their lives and you are not helping, but, trying to further shit on them – it is you who are whining like a dog who got it's nuts caught in a barbwire while crossing the fence. :) !

  300.

    Now, for the benefit of posterity, it becomes incumbent upon me to delve a little into the circumstances that led to declaration of this day as the National Mourning Day of Tamil Eelam.

    In those last days of the armed struggle, the day-to-day existence of our people had been so completely trampled upon as had been witnessed never before in our history, so much so that, their lives brimmed with nothing other than debilitating sorrow, sufferings, and disasters.

    Those were days when our people were chased down and murdered anywhere and everywhere – in their homes and in the streets, in the temples and in the hospitals, in wedding ceremonies and in funereal services- there was no place to hunker down if you were a Tamil – no place was a safe haven if you were a Tamil.

    Those were the days they were hunted down and killed at any time and at all times – regardless of what they were engaged in. They were killed while they were walking and while they were lying down, they were killed when they were eating and they were killed when they were learning, they were killed while they were asleep and they were killed while they were in bed. There wasn’t anything that you could do with peace of mind – No activity was a safe activity there if you were a Tamil.

    In the same way one would gather a pile of garbage together and set it on fire, just the same way one would gather a bunch bed bugs and trample upon them, the Sinhalese tyranny cornered the helpless Tamils into a tiny strip by the beachhead of Mullivaikkal and pulverized their life out of existence.

    The mindless acts of genocide on our land and our people shall remain as a collective memory of the Tamil people for generations to come.

    It is in this regard, in order to remember in its proper perspective the disaster and destruction that enveloped the people of Tamil Eelam that the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam has ordained May 18 each year as a National Day of Mourning. In order to enable all Tamils of our Homeland and of Diaspora to reflect on these events, share in the grief of a Nation and to derive inspiration from the valiant efforts of a people that would not surrender, it has also decreed that every year, henceforward, the days from May 12 to May 18 shall be observed as the Week of National Remembrance.

    The term “Mullivaikkal” has burrowed itself a deep hole but a tender one in the national psyche of a people. Just as “holocaust” holds a very tender, special place in the collective memory of the Jewish people, so will the term” Mullivaikkal” hold a special place in the collective memory not only of Eelam Tamils but of all Tamils all over the world. It is a special word that shall bear witness to the Genocide that was unleashed on the hapless Eelam Tamils.

    The sorrowful, disturbing and heart-rending collective memories do have a special way of entrenching deep in the psyche of a wounded people. They have the ability to bring transformational changes to the lives of a suffering people. It was a genocide that brought home the reality of a separate homeland to the Jewish people. It is only through nurturing their collective memories through many generations and channeling it through the dynamic of a political movement that the Palestinian people are now getting ready to greet a new dawn in their homeland. These two anecdotes of history shall hold well and serve the Tamils too in their struggle for their homeland.

    The National Mourning Day is not a day for weeping and wilting. It is the day to reflect and resolve. It is the day to absorb and utilize the sadness and sorrow to re-energize and reinvigorate ourselves in our determination to secure a free, sovereign, independent State of Tamil Eelam in order to live as a nation with security and self respect. And, secure it ever, we shall!

    The National Mourning day is not a day for drooping and recoiling. It is the day to absorb and utilize our many frustrations and disappointments to give ourselves a new impetus to forge ahead with a new resolve and renewed determination to bring those culprits of murder and mayhem to justice and to bring justice to our people. And bring it ever, we shall!

    The National Mourning Day is not a day to get stultified by the mindboggling destruction brought to our shore by the Sinhala army. It is not a day to get overwhelmed by doom and gloom. It is a day to reflect upon the supreme need to sacrifice for the sake of our people. It is the day to refocus our energies to rebuild the homesteads and livelihoods of a people that have lost everything.

    The Mullivaikkal massacre and the subsequent events that have followed in its wake have only helped to underline the fact that the need of the moment for Tamils of Eelam is the separate State of Tamil Eelam. And we say today here that parting of ways is the only way forward!

    It is an accepted norm in international law, covenants and practice that a nation that had suffered Genocide does have a right of remedy and relief through the exercise of their right to self-preservation, a sovereign State of their own. But, in reality, all these laws and practices come into effect only when the powerful states desire so. They take decisions based only on their self interest and not on the principle of justice and fair-play for all. Inevitably, the journey towards our goal has to be made within the parameters of this order of the world. This is the most powerful challenge we are envisaging right now. The enormity of the challenge is such that there is no need to emphasize the importance and imperative to utilize every opportunity that presents itself to us. We shall seize them without fail.

    It is in this light that the recently released Report of the UNSG Panel has to be considered as an opportunity. It provides us with some glowing opportunities and some stultifying impediments. It has meticulously demarcated and delineated all the war crimes perpetuated by the Sri Lankan political and military hierarchies on our people. It has also underlined the fact that it is unable to determine the fate 140,000 Tamils in the aftermath of the war. Yet, the Report inexplicably and astoundingly fails to categorize all these failings as an act of Genocide.

    That, of the five main categories of Sri Lankan excesses, four fall into the general classification of genocide by nature has been documented in no uncertain terms, yet there has been no unambiguous call for committing the perpetrators to the International Criminal Court is a bit puzzling. Large scale targeted shelling, targeting into a no-fire zone, knowingly targeting hospitals and other humanitarian objects, systematically depriving the people in the conflict zone of basic human needs, depriving from humanitarian aid, all the other human rights excesses committed by the Sri Lankan Government – these have all been pointed out in the report – the above actions directed by the military and political command of the Sri Lankan Government comprising almost exclusively Sinhalese against the Tamil civilians and therefore clearly establish that genocide has been planned and perpetrated by the political and military command. Furthermore, the Panel has gathered additional evidence which discloses that the policies of the Sri Lankan government immediately after the war subjected the Tamil population to torture, forcible imprisonment and other denials of human rights. Such persecutory and discriminatory conduct was based entirely on the ethnicity of people. We also note that based on recent international as well as national jurisprudence, the act of genocide can and has taken place in a limited geographic zone. The intent and important component of the act of genocide can be inferred from the scale and the nature of the operation. Based on information in the panel report these components of the crime of genocide are present. Yet there has been hesitancy in pointing them out as crimes of Genocide.

    To the extent the Panel has purposely desisted from using the word “Genocide” which was clearly reflected on all major turns of events catalogued in the report, we have to question the purposefulness of the report. Therefore, it is even more incumbent upon us now, to establish in the international arena that the crimes committed by the Sri Lankan Government are indeed crimes of Genocide. We have to go out and forestall the currently on-going international diplomatic maneuvers of the Sri Lankan Government to discredit in toto, the UNSG Panel report.

    We are working on the realization that we have to create a strong international opinion that basing on this report there are additional actions to be taken against the Sri Lankan Government. The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam is working on the realization that we have to raise the sympathies of the international community to a level which will be harder for anyone to resist so that no one will be able to throw the Panel’s Report into the garbage bin. We know our motives are genuine, we know our ambitions are modest and reasonable, and we know that in the end, justice shall be delivered to our people. http://www.tamilcanadian.com/article/6106

  302. Attention Eelamists & AI. Elie Wiesel, supporter of AI and ‘Tamil peoples’ supports killing children!

    Can any Eelamist explain how one of your supporters now justifies killing children?

    In support of the US assassinating Bin Laden (and the attendant civilian deaths), Wiesel says:

    “The execution of a human being—any human being—should never be an event to be celebrated. Death—anyone’s—must be taken seriously, thoughtfully.
    This time is different. … I, too, shared in the collective response of so many Americans: “He got what he deserved.” He committed too many crimes, too many murders— he caused too much suffering—for his death to arouse pity or sadness.

    By his actions, he [Osama] gave up any right to human compassion.
    Sadly, he was not the only one put at risk by the American operation. There were others. Among them, children. And children are never guilty. Still, it was bin Laden himself who placed them in harm’s way.

    http://www.newsweek.com/2011/05/05/sorrow-and-joy.html

    “This time is different.” Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear…

    In support of the Eelam cause, Wiesel says:
    “..Tamil people must be allowed to live in peace and flourish in their homeland.”
    http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=29690

    Best of all, like Don Corleone Obama, Wiesel is a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. He even attends AI awards ceremonies as an honoured guest. I guess supporting Eelam must have finally sent Elie Wiesel’s rusty moral compass into a permanent death spiral! :) :)

    p.s. Do you Eelamists think that Elie will give a message of support to the Sri Lankan people for having crushed the LTTE?

  303. Nurse! Call the men in white coats. Another Casualty of Eelam!

    “Tamil genocide was planned by international powers”

    Amongst the collection of morons who spoke at the recent Genocide Party in London, the most deranged was Dr Andrew Higginbottom, the Principal Lecturer in Politics/Human Rights at Kingston University who claimed that …”they [the world powers] created the political conditions for this massacre and genocide and they knew operationally what was exactly going on and they did nothing to stop it.”

    He ended his insane speech with the time honoured battle cry of lost causes, “Long Live Eelam”. Indeed it does, in London, Toronto and Oslo.

    http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=79&artid=33977

    Truly, those whom the gods wish to destroy, they first make mad by making them believe in Eelam.

  304. “Tamil genocide was planned by international powers”

    I like this truly collective international effort to genociding LTTE terrorists. In LTTE's own admission, nobody likes them, everybody hates them.

  305. Your voices have come out !

    i hear each & every one of you.

    i hear your forest of songs.

    i hear your Power curse upon the Destroyers.

    i hear your Powerful blessings upon their children .

    When i see you acknowledge even a little of the Destroyers’ mind, i withdraw.

    When i see a spirit like Singa’s with unbound hair & arrow finger, i advance.

  306. Tamils not benefited at all, even though war has come to an end in Sri lanka – Forces engaged in business.
    http://www.lankasrinews.com/view.php?22mAC0302XlO44e3zBmAca255Ycdd3KY54ac3SmBce40KOld02eMMeb2

    The Asian Net movement had published its opinion that the people in the Southern part of Sri Lanka are enjoying after the second successful year, on completion of war, but still the northern people are living with fear and without any facilities to upkeep their living standards.

    Among the displaced and resettled people, approximately 48 persons had committed suicide. The displaced people are affected severely by education and they are unable to get settled in their native lands due to the impound by Sri Lankan troops. Still Tamil people are getting lost are the incidents recorded. The forces are engaged in business by the constructions of more than 60 luxury hotels in the A9 road, from Omanthai to Palai localities. The areas which were informed that are released after war, is still not economically developed, but only new building structures have cropped up. The women, who had lost their husbands in the Mannar district, are involved in difficult jobs in the necessity of looking after their families were mentioned by the movement.

    War Crimes – Why India Backs Sri Lanka’s stand
    http://www.tamileelamnews.com/2011/05/21/war-crimes-%e2%80%93-why-india-backs-sri-lanka%e2%80%99s-stand/#more
    If the international investigation starts it will lead to examination of the role of India in aiding Srilankan war crimes. If such evidences are established, the European countries may use that to checkmate India’s aspirations. Father Jeghat explained the above strategies in detail. If such a situation develops much depends on the surfacing of evidences of Indian support to Srilanka during the war.

  307. war crimes and its serious breaches of the international law Says:

    May 22nd, 2011 at 11:54 pm

    First of all, what the Donky's Rectum do you know about International law or any law for that matter ?? Your retarded terrorists broke the law at will and enforced their own laws that included 1 child from every family to join a suicide army – is that what you call law ? Is planting Bombs around the country killing innocent people called law or obeying a law ?? What do retarded terrorists know about law you Jack Ass ?? But, thanks for the laugh… My rectum Aches !!

    This is the day, the virulent ethnic cleansing pogroms perpetrated against our people by the odious Sri Lankan Government, culminated in the most number of tragic deaths in Mullivaikkal and brought the most debilitating sorrow and sadness, not only to the people of Tamil Ealam but to all Tamils all over the world.

    Sadness to Tamils or Retards ??
    I know of many Tamils who rejoiced that day when they heard that the retarded Terrorist leader was Killed.

    You say Genocide against "our people" – How correct – It indeed was the Intention of all Sri Lankans including Tamils, Sinhales, Muslims etc. to committ genocide against the Retarded Terrorists. What an acheivement !!

    “Tamil genocide was planned by international powers”

    I like this truly collective international effort to genociding LTTE terrorists. In LTTE’s own admission, nobody likes them, everybody hates them.

    To add to what you have mentioned, we saw on many instances many members of the LTTE leaving them and joining other parties that opposed Terrorism. The largest break off was when Karuna lead his whole team of the Eastern part to defect the retarded LTTE and fought against the LTTE to free the East from terrorism. Even after the retarded leaders death we saw stalwarts of LTTE like Daya and George masters as well as the Leader after Prabha, Kumaran Padmanadan denouncing terrorism and joining the GoSL to make peace and build the nation. Which donkey on earth does not understand this logic ??? Only a retarded terrorist ha ?

  309. Watch Sinhala Terrorists in Action Says:
    May 20th, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    Hello there Retarded terrorist !!

    First of all, use your own creativity, I called you retards and proved that you are retards – so, don’t try to see my image when you look in the mirroe. You don’t have the balls to stand up for your own selves and that’s not my problem.

    If talking of Karuna, Pillayan, Neelan T, Alfred D, Lakshman K, Kuma P and all the other Murdered Tamil Politicians by the LTTE is being deperate, Please tell me how less desperate you retards are talking of a killing of only a single Retarded terrorist who unfortunately is a Tamil who killed Tamils and became a curse to the Tamils?? – This is where I have proven that you talk from your rectums !!

    According to you, only Prabaharan was the true Tamil.. All other Tamils who opposed are desperate ?? We are talking of 1 Terrorist movement of LTTE against several legal political movements of Tamils – if all tamils share your views, there would have been no issue and hands down Eelam to you – But, Tamils are intelligent and not retards like you – That’s why you killed those intelligent and wel educated Tamils. Because U R retards.

    If people don’t remember Pillayan and Karuna, why did they get votes in plentyful during elections ??? They won the elections legitimately and with the votes of the Tamil, Singhala and Muslim people…. Why couldn’t Prabha do that ?? Why did he cut the hand of the Tamil Gentleman who went to cast the vote ???? This is where you retards need to accept the fact that Prabha himself was a retarded and a terrorist. This is where you retards cannot run away or wash your hands off…. You were involved in Terrorism someway and it still continues – you are dangerous to the human race. .

    Also, do not forget the thousands of Tamils who left LTTE along with Karuna & Pillayan…. I don’t think they have forgotten anything either. You are stupid enough to call them traitors – What do you wish to call retarded Prabha after he killed so many Innocent Tamils ??? I don’t care about individuals of other countries, I know how popular Prabha was here in Colombo among Tamil People – They would have Shat on his grave if he was buried – Thank the GoSL for cremating and throwing his ashes to the sea… His graveyard would have been one of the smelliest places if not.

    dude – don’t tell me you are not an LTTE supporter – we are talking of the LTTE because this report clearly says that the LTTE are equally guilty of war crimes.

    OK – let’s start fresh – Retarded Prabha is Dead and gone and Thank GoSL for that !! What are these atrocities you are talking of ???? When is the last time you visited Sri Lanka?? – have you been to Wellawatte recently?? Have you been to Any place in Baticaloa recently or Have you been to the North ?? Are you hallucinating or is it just your imagination or are you being true to your self of being a retard ??? We see, associate and socialize with individuals from all Ethnic groups and we don’t see any descrimination. People play for the same teams, Drink the same Bottle, Go to the same Curch, Kovil and Temple, Take medication in the same hospitals, work for the same companies, dine at the same restaurents, travel in the same busses, walk on the same streets witout any discrimination based on Ethnicity or any other factor for that matter. so, how did you come to the conclusion of all negatives ?? Who lied to you or as I mentioned, are you being true to yourself and being a true retard??

    I think Mango explained how the “Development” has helped people of the former War Zones to build their businesses and Livehoods. So, your argument of locals not getting any benefit is flushed down the toilet !! (if you still need clarifications, go on google and search for Development in SL after war – north and east) Unless you are expecting the people there to get a million Dollars from their business starting Day 1 and the infrstructure that was destroyed by the retarded LTTE to be put back to normal with the wave of a Magic Wand. (I will not be surprised if you think it could happen – Usually retards do have these Fantacies – Mastabatory Fantacies :) ) We all see the development in the East after 5 years and North, being larger land mass, might take a few more years than that to come to the current levels experienced in East – Money Matters too ha ??

    You tell us not to talk of the LTTE and say that your ‘Loved One’s Burial Sites” – what a joke – Did they forcefully take your children to war and hung Cyanide capsules around the neck because they ‘Love You So Much” ??

    You say that the schools were asked to build wesak stuff and you are not Buddhist – Let me ask you, why do people in Colombo Decorate for Chirstmas even if they are not Christians ?? This is a part of living in a Multicultural society. Muslims in Indonesia Lit candles at Borobudur – for what ????? In Malaysia there were celebrations and even in the United Nations they had a celebration – Thanks to a great Tamil – Lakshman Kadiragamar who made Wesak a world event who himself was not a Buddhist.. Has the LTTE made you sound so dumb not to respect another belief. I do not wish to comment on them, but, I saw many posts slamming Buddhism – how Blind are we ?? Isn’t it the So called hindu’s who do not Eat meat that planted Bombs all over Sri Lanka to kill innocent civilians ??? Again it proves my point of you being some retarded lunetics – trying to hit with anyting that you hands can cling on to, but, not knowing that it is a Boomarang that basically came back to cut your own throat – LOL !! You don’t see me or mango blaming Hindu’s or Christaisn or Islamists or even Tamils or Muslims for what happened – we blame the retarded terrorists and their supporters. I always say this – Terorists do not have an Ethnic group, Relegion, Colour and most importantly Brains – they are not human and should not be mistaken for anything related to any ethnic group or belief.

    All your examples are also Bullshit – we know of a rape case that happened sometime back and the army soldier is still in Jail. Your claim on the Eastern Uni is utter Bullshit. You are trying to paint a false picture where you say that the SL army in the north basically run riot and no one is taking any action ?? How can that be when thousands of colombo people visit these areas on a daily basis ?? Do you think that our gus will shut their mouths if injustice happens from whoever ?? These are all utter lies – either you are making them up or you are believing someone who is lying to you. Think logically you moron – can it actually happen continously as you say without anyone not knowing and taking action against – rubbish ??

    99% Tamils might bullshit to a singhalees Buddhist, but, they will not Bullshit to a Tamil ha ?? Do you think Lakshman K lied during his time to be with the Singhala Buddhists or is he a 1% ? How about Neelan T and all the other tamil leaders and their followers ?? Are they 1% ??? Again, your logical brains have failed you missrably. Also, what made you to think so surely that My self and Mango are Singhala Buddhists ??

    Your reply is the same that we have seen posted by So many – all fart no shit… Baseless, Full of Lies, no proof, heard all over (U did not have to tell us, we already heard) – Tell us something new – prove it. If you truely want to stand for tamils, help them and not try to put them down – They lived a shitty life for the past 30 years with LTTE depriving their basic rights. Now they are re-building their lives and you are not helping, but, trying to further shit on them – it is you who are whining like a dog who got it’s nuts caught in a barbwire while crossing the fence. :) !

  310. Most Importantly, the following article was written by a Tamil Gentlman – Jernoulist by the name od Eswaran Ratnam

    Wonder whether the LTTE supporters writing in this column are money collectors or money givers. However, forcing people to pay money for unworthy and terrorist causes are not acceptable by Human Standards.

    Following the arrest of Norwegian based LTTE leader Perinpanayagam Sivaparan alias Nediyawan in Oslo, Sri Lanka says it will assist the Norwegian and Dutch authorities in the investigations if a request is made.

    Sri Lanka’s Ambassador to Norway, Rodney Perera said he was aware of Nediyawan’s arrest and his embassy was following developments closely.

    Asked if Sri Lanka would seek to obtain information from Nediyawan regarding LTTE activities in Sri Lanka and overseas, the Ambassador said that Sri Lanka would first wait for the Norwegian and Dutch authorities to contact Sri Lanka regarding the ongoing investigation.

    The Ambassador said that LTTE activities on Norwegian soil had seen a drastic decrease in recent times, adding that Oslo was also now keen on cracking down on terrorism.

    He said that several Tamils who had faced LTTE threats over the years and had to pay extortion money to LTTE groups in Norway were now coming out and openly speaking against the outfit.The Norway News website said that Nediyawan, a prominent figure and "new leader" of the LTTE was being questioned over LTTE activities in the Netherlands.

    A Dutch judge and five Dutch Defence Attorneys are in Norway to interrogate the LTTE leader Nediyavan, who is a resident of Norway.

  311. This is the day, the virulent ethnic cleansing pogroms perpetrated against our people by the odious Sri Lankan Government, culminated in the most number of tragic deaths in Mullivaikkal and brought the most debilitating sorrow and sadness, not only to the people of Tamil Ealam but to all Tamils all over the world.

    This day, soaked in the blood of Eelam Tamils, shall bear witness in history to the misdeeds of the murderous tentacles of the Sinhala State that clawed all the way through Southern Tamil Ealam to corner our helpless civilians in Mullivaikkal and commit Genocide of gargantuan proportions.

    This day the de facto state of Tamil Eelam, built on the valor and sacrifice of our heroes, and ably led by the Tamil National Leader Mr. V. Pirapaharan; the de facto state that provided the space to articulate the political aspirations of the Tamil people, came under total occupation by the Sinhala State.

    This day, with its indelible stains of Tamil blood, marks the culmination of those mournful days when the fascist Sinhala diabolarchy rained an Armageddon of cluster bombs on our people, simply destroying 80,000 civilians in a matter of days and shocked the civilized world into disbelief.

    On this day, the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam remembers with profound respect all those innocent souls of Tamil Ealam that became collateral damage in the mindboggling designs of a mindless Sinhalese aggressor. Today, we will fondly remember and pay our obsequies to our freedom fighters who sacrificed their lives in their valiant efforts to forestall the Sinhala aggression.

    Now, for the benefit of posterity, it becomes incumbent upon me to delve a little into the circumstances that led to declaration of this day as the National Mourning Day of Tamil Eelam.

    Those were the days they were hunted down and killed at any time and at all times – regardless of what they were engaged in. They were killed while they were walking and while they were lying down, they were killed when they were eating and they were killed when they were learning, they were killed while they were asleep and they were killed while they were in bed. There wasn’t anything that you could do with peace of mind – No activity was a safe activity there if you were a Tamil.

    In the same way one would gather a pile of garbage together and set it on fire, just the same way one would gather a bunch bed bugs and trample upon them, the Sinhalese tyranny cornered the helpless Tamils into a tiny strip by the beachhead of Mullivaikkal and pulverized their life out of existence.

    The mindless acts of genocide on our land and our people shall remain as a collective memory of the Tamil people for generations to come.

    It is in this regard, in order to remember in its proper perspective the disaster and destruction that enveloped the people of Tamil Eelam that the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam has ordained May 18 each year as a National Day of Mourning. In order to enable all Tamils of our Homeland and of Diaspora to reflect on these events, share in the grief of a Nation and to derive inspiration from the valiant efforts of a people that would not surrender, it has also decreed that every year, henceforward, the days from May 12 to May 18 shall be observed as the Week of National Remembrance.

    The term “Mullivaikkal” has burrowed itself a deep hole but a tender one in the national psyche of a people. Just as “holocaust” holds a very tender, special place in the collective memory of the Jewish people, so will the term” Mullivaikkal” hold a special place in the collective memory not only of Eelam Tamils but of all Tamils all over the world. It is a special word that shall bear witness to the Genocide that was unleashed on the hapless Eelam Tamils.

    The sorrowful, disturbing and heart-rending collective memories do have a special way of entrenching deep in the psyche of a wounded people.

It is only through nurturing their collective memories through many generations and channeling it through the dynamic of a political movement that the Palestinian people are now getting ready to greet a new dawn in their homeland. These two anecdotes of history shall hold well and serve the Tamils too in their struggle for their homeland.

    The National Mourning Day is not a day for weeping and wilting. It is the day to reflect and resolve. It is the day to absorb and utilize the sadness and sorrow to re-energize and reinvigorate ourselves in our determination to secure a free, sovereign, independent State of Tamil Eelam in order to live as a nation with security and self respect. And, secure it ever, we shall!

    The National Mourning day is not a day for drooping and recoiling. It is the day to absorb and utilize our many frustrations and disappointments to give ourselves a new impetus to forge ahead with a new resolve and renewed determination to bring those culprits of murder and mayhem to justice and to bring justice to our people. And bring it ever, we shall!

    The National Mourning Day is not a day to get stultified by the mindboggling destruction brought to our shore by the Sinhala army. It is not a day to get overwhelmed by doom and gloom. It is a day to reflect upon the supreme need to sacrifice for the sake of our people. It is the day to refocus our energies to rebuild the homesteads and livelihoods of a people that have lost everything.

    The Mullivaikkal massacre and the subsequent events that have followed in its wake have only helped to underline the fact that the need of the moment for Tamils of Eelam is the separate State of Tamil Eelam. And we say today here that parting of ways is the only way forward!

    It is an accepted norm in international law, covenants and practice that a nation that had suffered Genocide does have a right of remedy and relief through the exercise of their right to self-preservation, a sovereign State of their own. But, in reality, all these laws and practices come into effect only when the powerful states desire so. They take decisions based only on their self interest and not on the principle of justice and fair-play for all. Inevitably, the journey towards our goal has to be made within the parameters of this order of the world. This is the most powerful challenge we are envisaging right now.

Based on information in the panel report these components of the crime of genocide are present. Yet there has been hesitancy in pointing them out as crimes of Genocide.

    To the extent the Panel has purposely desisted from using the word “Genocide” which was clearly reflected on all major turns of events catalogued in the report, we have to question the purposefulness of the report. Therefore, it is even more incumbent upon us now, to establish in the international arena that the crimes committed by the Sri Lankan Government are indeed crimes of Genocide. We have to go out and forestall the currently on-going international diplomatic maneuvers of the Sri Lankan Government to discredit in toto, the UNSG Panel report.

    We are working on the realization that we have to create a strong international opinion that basing on this report there are additional actions to be taken against the Sri Lankan Government. The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam is working on the realization that we have to raise the sympathies of the international community to a level which will be harder for anyone to resist so that no one will be able to throw the Panel’s Report into the garbage bin. We know our motives are genuine, we know our ambitions are modest and reasonable, and we know that in the end, justice shall be delivered to our people.

    I'm delighted that you've found a new boyfriend in Singa. Last we heard you were going to watch whales off the East coast with Gunalan. Now you've turned into an Eelamish Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger!

    Go Eelamish Power Rangers, Go!

  313. Let's Listen to another battered Tamil Woman – Yogalingam Rubaganthy, 29

    Now, the women are taking back war-torn northern Sri Lanka, one square metre at a time.

    The war is two years over, much of the north is still barely populated and hardly rebuilt. There is little economy. A major reason is a land still blighted by landmines. And the eelamists posting here want the innocent Tamil people to go to thier home lands – just to get caught to the mines that were planted by the LTTE

    Landmines – the number is unknown. The best estimates suggest it is in the hundreds of thousands.

    For decades during its separatist war against the government, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam – known to the world as the Tamil Tigers – had jungle factories turning out thousands of landmines every week. The army laid its own fields.

    Now in the aftermath of the fighting, young women are the sole breadwinners in thousands of families, and they are taking up one of the few jobs going; the difficult and dangerous task of clearing their scarred land, mine by mine.

    Yogalingam Rubaganthy, 29, a de-miner for a year, is helping to train the second all-women team run by UK-based Mines Advisory Group, funded by the aid arm of the Australian government.

    ”It’s difficult work. It’s hot and it’s dry and it is difficult to be in the field all day [and to] concentrate,” she says. – This is what the Eelamists who post here want's right ?

    ”But [it] is possible for women to do the work, they have the ability.”

    She lost her father, one sister and two brothers when her home in Kilinochchi was shelled by the LTTE. She has one younger brother left, who is now back at school.

    ”That’s the main reason we are all here. We have responsibilities for our families. I must look after my family now.”

    She sees benefit for the country too. Fleeing the fighting, she spent months in an internment camp for Tamils displaced by the war.

    ”The camps are not a nice place to live, and many people are still there. They need their lands free from mines so they can come home, come back to [their] livelihoods.”

    Hope eelamists posting here will now not ask the stupid question as to why some people are not sent home yet

    The Tamil Tigers spent years laying vast minefields, stretching almost across the entire island, in an attempt to build a physical barrier that would separate the Tamil-dominated north from the Sinhalese south. Whi is paying the price??

    But in the final weeks of the conflict, as they fled the advancing Sri Lankan army, the Tigers took to ”nuisance mining”, laying mines without pattern.They laid mines around trees, near houses and wells or on paths; anywhere where troops and people would be likely to tread. Simply irresponsible Terrorist Mentality – No wonder Rip calls them retarded

    The advisory group’s technical operations manager, Magnus Rundstrom, says de-mining teams clear villages first, checking for mines in and around homes, near wells and along paths. The next priority is farmland, as most people rely on what they can grow on their land for a living.

    There are mines laid deep in the jungle too, but these are a lower priority.

    As he tests the new de-miners’ skills, Mr Rundstrom says in conservative Sri Lanka it would be inappropriate for women de-miners to work alongside men. ”But the training they receive is exactly the same, and the work they do is exactly the same.” Treating the Tamil Women with this much of care, the Eelamists say that there is rape – what a Joke ?

    At 24 years old, Egambaram Renathani is head of her household.

    Today she is being taught how to check for tripwires.

    ”I am learning for one week. It is difficult but it is important for my country. I am proud to do this job.”

    Wonder why these women mention 'my country" and take pride in what they do? What if they had the mentality of the Eelamists who post here? they lives would be worse than this I guess. I plead from the Eelamists and the world organization to let these people re-build their lives. What you are doing is wrong by them. You did them wrong by enforcing unlawful acts on them and now you are depriving them of re-building their lives.

  314. “Tamil genocide was planned by international powers”

    I like this truly collective international effort to genociding LTTE terrorists. In LTTE’s own admission, nobody likes them, everybody hates them.

  315. war crimes and its serious breaches of the international law Says:

    May 22nd, 2011 at 11:54 pm

    First of all, what the Donky’s Rectum do you know about International law or any law for that matter ?? Your retarded terrorists broke the law at will and enforced their own laws that included 1 child from every family to join a suicide army – is that what you call law ? Is planting Bombs around the country killing innocent people called law or obeying a law ?? What do retarded terrorists know about law you Jack Ass ?? But, thanks for the laugh… My rectum Aches !!

    This is the day, the virulent ethnic cleansing pogroms perpetrated against our people by the odious Sri Lankan Government, culminated in the most number of tragic deaths in Mullivaikkal and brought the most debilitating sorrow and sadness, not only to the people of Tamil Ealam but to all Tamils all over the world.

    Sadness to Tamils or Retards ??
    I know of many Tamils who rejoiced that day when they heard that the retarded Terrorist leader was Killed.

    You say Genocide against “our people” – How correct – It indeed was the Intention of all Sri Lankans including Tamils, Sinhales, Muslims etc. to committ genocide against the Retarded Terrorists. What an acheivement !!

    “Tamil genocide was planned by international powers”

    I like this truly collective international effort to genociding LTTE terrorists. In LTTE’s own admission, nobody likes them, everybody hates them.

    To add to what you have mentioned, we saw on many instances many members of the LTTE leaving them and joining other parties that opposed Terrorism. The largest break off was when Karuna lead his whole team of the Eastern part to defect the retarded LTTE and fought against the LTTE to free the East from terrorism. Even after the retarded leaders death we saw stalwarts of LTTE like Daya and George masters as well as the Leader after Prabha, Kumaran Padmanadan denouncing terrorism and joining the GoSL to make peace and build the nation. Which donkey on earth does not understand this logic ??? Only a retarded terrorist ha ?

  317. Most Importantly, the following article was written by a Tamil Gentlman – Jernoulist by the name od Eswaran Ratnam

    Wonder whether the LTTE supporters writing in this column are money collectors or money givers. However, forcing people to pay money for unworthy and terrorist causes are not acceptable by Human Standards.

    Following the arrest of Norwegian based LTTE leader Perinpanayagam Sivaparan alias Nediyawan in Oslo, Sri Lanka says it will assist the Norwegian and Dutch authorities in the investigations if a request is made.

    Sri Lanka’s Ambassador to Norway, Rodney Perera said he was aware of Nediyawan’s arrest and his embassy was following developments closely.

    Asked if Sri Lanka would seek to obtain information from Nediyawan regarding LTTE activities in Sri Lanka and overseas, the Ambassador said that Sri Lanka would first wait for the Norwegian and Dutch authorities to contact Sri Lanka regarding the ongoing investigation.

    The Ambassador said that LTTE activities on Norwegian soil had seen a drastic decrease in recent times, adding that Oslo was also now keen on cracking down on terrorism.

    He said that several Tamils who had faced LTTE threats over the years and had to pay extortion money to LTTE groups in Norway were now coming out and openly speaking against the outfit.The Norway News website said that Nediyawan, a prominent figure and “new leader” of the LTTE was being questioned over LTTE activities in the Netherlands.

    A Dutch judge and five Dutch Defence Attorneys are in Norway to interrogate the LTTE leader Nediyavan, who is a resident of Norway.

  320. I did not even know that there was a war going on in Sri Lanka let alone the kinds of crimes that are listed here. The atrocities committed against the Taamils are horrible. This sounds like the whole never again rhetoric from the UN. Act like we are helping but we are just going to watch and hope it goes away.

  321. The gross abuses that were committed by both sides were horrendous. The problem is that the UN is known to always drag their feet when admitting to war crimes. The disregard for human life by the Sri Lanka government after the surrender of the Tamil Tigers is probably one of the worst stories I have ever read. I support all of the efforts of Amnesty International because with out this organization all governments would probably commit these types of crimes and allow the murdering to continue indefinitely.
