State Dept.: no accountability yet for Sri Lanka war crimes

As my colleague Christoph Koettl mentioned in his earlier post on this site, the State Department today issued its follow-up report on war crimes in Sri Lanka.  Why a follow-up report?  Last October, the State Department issued a report describing over 300 reported human rights abuses (including war crimes) committed by both sides during the final months of the war in Sri Lanka.  That earlier report cited incidents documented by Amnesty International, among others, and was based on traditional and innovative evidence, including satellite imagery and aerial photographs.   Congress then instructed the State Dept. to issue a second report about what the Sri Lankan government has done to investigate these abuses, and to evaluate the effectiveness of their efforts.  That second report by the State Dept. was issued today.

What’s the verdict?  No effective accountability yet by the Sri Lankan government.  The State Dept. describes how the Sri Lankan government has set up two bodies:  (1) a “Group of Eminent  Persons” to respond to the first State Dept. report, and (2) a reconciliation commission to examine the breakdown of the 2002 ceasefire with the Tamil Tigers and subsequent events.  The State Dept. concludes that the Group of Eminent Persons (which has now been subsumed into the reconciliation commission) was ineffective.

As for the reconciliation commission, the State Dept. points out in its report that the commission has just gotten started but it does mention a couple concerns, among others:

(a) The chair of the commission has a serious conflict of interest.  He used to be Sri Lanka’s Attorney General.  His department hindered the workings of an earlier commission of inquiry (as documented in AI’s “Twenty Years of Make-Believe” report).

(b) Public statements by Sri Lankan officials, such as the Defence Secretary, have been to the effect that the Sri Lankan military didn’t commit any abuses.  In this context, it may be difficult for the reconciliation commission to do an effective job of investigating abuses.

There’s more in the State Dept. report, including discussion of the UN advisory panel and of the “execution video,” which I don’t have room to discuss here (at least, if I want to keep this to a reasonable length).

Amnesty and other organizations have been calling for an independent international investigation into war crimes and other abuses committed by both sides during the war in Sri Lanka.  After reading the latest State Department report, I think our call for such an investigation is only strengthened.  The victims of the abuses and their families shouldn’t have to wait for the reconciliation commission to fail to provide justice.  We need an international investigation now!  If you haven’t already, please sign our online petition to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon asking the UN to set up such an investigation.  Thanks!

  1. "The US State Department report shows that nearly 15 months after the war, the Sri Lankan government has accomplished nothing for the victims of war crimes. Real progress on justice demands an international investigation."

    Sri Lanka's civil war inquiry is 'eyewash', say Tamils http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/sri-

    Sri Lanka's investigation into the war against the Tamil Tigers – a conflict that left thousands of civilians dead – has begun amid a barrage of allegations that justice will not be done. When President Mahinda Rajapaksa announced the commission earlier this year, its purpose was ostensibly to find out why a 2002 ceasefire brokered by Norway, and signed by the government and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), broke down.

  2. U.N. pushes war crimes probe as Sri Lanka steps up diplomacy http://edition.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/asiapcf/08/10/s

    A protest at the U.N. compound and a cabinet minister's three-day "fast unto death" has not deterred U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon from proceeding with a probe into alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka. Meanwhile, the government, which denies the war crimes' allegations, has redoubled its efforts to stymie the move — through negotiations with the opposition and working with the West. The final phase of the military campaign last year to defeat the Tamil Tiger rebels, who fought a two and half-decades-long bloody separatist war, is shrouded in controversy. Local and international media were barred access to the battle zones.

    Sri Lanka's Defense Secretary, Gotabhaya Rajapakse, who is widely believed to be the key Sri Lanka official responsible for instituting procedures and issuing commands that allegedly violated international norms in the conduct of war, has provided enlightening clues to inner workings of his mind in several interviews recorded on film by reputable international media. "His unchecked power, authorized by his brother and Sri Lanka's President Mahinda Rajapakse, appears to have blunted his reasoning faculty, triggering him to compulsively express open threats against journalists and unwittingly admit to abject disregard for civilian casualties while issuing military commands. Many of his statements border on self-incrimination," said a spokesperson for Tamils Against Genocide (TAG), a US-based activist group.

  7. Sri Lanka: New Evidence of Wartime Abuses http://www.hrw.org/en/news/2010/05/20/sri-lanka-n

    Yet another feckless commission is a grossly inadequate response to the numerous credible allegations of war crimes. Damning new evidence of abuses shows why the UN should not let Sri Lanka sweep these abuses under the carpet.

    It looks another 500 War crime Witness reach canada, shark could not catch them. 5 Tamils witness were eaten by the shark when the tried to reach Australia, another 12 were missing before that.

  8. How many of the Buddhist principles anyone in the Sinhalese politics had adopted in the past or present, for that matter will adopt in the future? “

    Really if I starve the Tamils out, the Sinhala people will be happy,” President J.R.Jayawardene told the Daily Telegraph, (UK) on July 11, 1983.

    Appearing on TV, four days after the 1983 riots when 3,000 Tamils were massacred, he offered no remorsefulness or consolation for the Tamil victims – that much for his high moral character.

    Their sense of generosity and kindness came to the forefront when they placed 300,000 people behind barbed wires in May 2009 and deprived them of food and water.

    Their practice of their version of Buddist avihimsa is leading them to the World Court in Hague for the crime of genocide.

    In spite of 2,000 years of Buddhism the Sinhalese leaders adhere to no moral, legal or religious principles.

  9. The Government wishes in this regard to observe that in May 2009, Sri Lanka defeated the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), recognized globally as a brutal terrorist organization. The conflict situation had a devastating effect on the people of Sri Lanka and the Government has set a vigorous goal of rebuilding the nation to move forward into a new era of peace and prosperity.
    The Government of Sri Lanka acknowledges that the lessons which may be drawn from the past could contribute to true reconciliation, and is committed to a rapid process to achieve this.

    President Mahinda Rajapaksa has appointed an independent Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission. The work of the Commission is now underway and is dedicated to fairness and impartiality.

    Furthermore, the Government has almost completed the resettlement of all displaced persons and continues to support their livelihood. Also, in the past few months, the Government has repealed most of the emergency regulations that were necessary during the conflict situation.

  12. Rajapaksa is blaming instability in Sri Lanka on the LTTE is the only way the majority community can hide their true ambitions.

    It was clear from day 1 of independence in 1948 that tamils were not welcome and not equal.

    It took 30 years for the Tamils to take up arms and that only after the JVP led the way.

    Sinhala community would like the world to forget the loss of citizenship of plantation Tamils of indian descent who have been living in Sri lanka for generations.

    They clealry were not aware the meaning of the Sinhala only act, which forced majority of tamils out of government jobs.

    They also would like you to ignore the fact how successive governments have launched anti tamil progroms such as black July and the burning of Jaffna library.

    The JHU and other sinhalese supremacists have publically claimed that the island belong to the sinhalese and tamils do not need the same rights as the majority community.

  13. EDE, Repo is so blind by Rajapaske brothers propoganda that he believes that the only way to prove that the Sri Lanka army did not commit war crimes is to prevent and independent inquiring into it which would have included Sri Lankan allies if it has any left.

    In Sri Lanka it seems that conspiracy theories against the west is the way that Rajapske brothers can maintain there strong ignorant supporter base without needing to provide evidence.

    Rajapaske is the new king so the population just believes him.

    Fonseka supports a international inquiry on the basis that he and the troops have done nothing wrong yet Ghotabhaya has threatened on BBC program Hard talk that General Fonseka is a traitor and that he will be hanged if he spoke to an independent commission.

  14. Rohan_sri lanka State Terror Victim

    Yes, I saw it.

    No worries, my friend. :)

    When you post anything use only one link in one comment otherwise the AI have to check it before it will appear here

  15. For the zillionth time, Why cannot Amnesty Understand the reason for the GOSL to oppose such investigation ??

    It is very straight forward and has been communicated on may times by many people to the world.

    The simple reason is – Why Only Sri Lanka ???

    Has Amnesty or any other so called, pretending to be HR organizations take any action ever against the war crimes done by the western countries ?????

    You start from USA, UK, Israel etc, then come to Sri Lanka – Sri Lanka was the last of such cases and knowingly, many other HR violations have happened by courtesy of USA and their allies. Nothing against USA here, but, against AI for the double standards.

    Also, AI should understand what exactly happened during the war than just cry out loud because some person lies about seeing a pink elephant. It is quite obvious that AI is mainly barking up on information obtained by the LTTE supporters. The Sat images and the technically proven false video are the only kind of evidence that AI has and explanations to those items have been provided by a legal government (and not a Terrorist organization).

    Also, AI has failed to answer the question on what action needs to be taken against a branded Terrorists group apart from eliminating them, specially, when these Terrorists were,

    1. Having dangerous fire arms in possession
    2. Having a Navel unit
    3. Having an Air force
    4. Acquiring land area in a legitimate country
    5. Terrorizing the people who were in their control areas
    6. Engaging children (as young as 9 years) in war and making them fighters
    7. Having suicide squads
    8. Getting innocent children and other combatants to commit suicide by having a cyanide capsule if they get caught
    9. Killing Tamils who oppose them
    10. Kill innocent people by means of planting bombs in public areas
    11. Smuggle Arms around the world
    12. Smuggle Drugs around the world
    13. Train other Terrorist organizations as Al-Quaida on Suicide missions, Bomb Manufacture and other terror activities
    14. Pay other terrorist organizations
    15. Have an ultimate goal of capturing land mass in north of Sri Lanka and capture the whole Island and also expand this Terror kingdom to South India (Tamilnadu) and parts of many other surrounding countries.
    16. Using innocent people as Human shields during last stages of war
    17. Using innocent people's houses, public and religious buildings as firing points and arms stores.
    18. Shooting down innocent people who tried to escape the humans shield
    19. Sending suicide bombers along with escaping innocent civilians to blast them selves in the midst of these civilians
    20. Spreading false statements on SLA / GOSL killing people after they them selves killed these people

    Please pardon me if I have not included more on to this list.

    Hence, if AI can give a better solution than elimination of such brutal force, please do spell it out now. (Keep in mind that 4 previous governments and this government of SL, had many peace talks, but in vain as the LTTE Mentally challenged leader only wanted to fight – KP the leader who followed him, confirms this)

    Every year since this sick menace started many innocent died. If GOSL did not eliminate these Apes, it would have still continued. We are not ruling out any possibility of innocent getting killed during the war after all, they were used as human shields. However, this menace had to end for the goodness sake of the whole world – It has happened and what the GOSL needs is applauds and bot brick backs. Hence, we thoroughly feel that what AI is doing is totally unnecessary and out of context + irresponsible. You need to get rid of Mentally sick Terrorists to save Humans and the Human Race. I would be glad if Amnesty could see beyond their nostrils and have some clauses in their HR Bible to separate Terrorists from Humans and actions that are to be taken against terrorists by Humans, for the sake of the humans and the future of the Human Race.

  16. It is clear from looking at Sri lankan census data that successive governments are colonising Tamil areas since independence in order to politically marginalize Tamils by making Tamil dominated areas into Sinhalese dominated areas.

    After Sri lanka gets this homogenous Sinhala Buddhist state Tamils will not have a voice at all, this is the truth of the Sri Lankan political solution.

    If the Rajapaske wanted a true political solution they would have concluded the APRC and enforced it.

    Sinhala mentality does not consider Tamils as equals and thus does not deserve the rights given to the Sinhala buddhist community.

    This is summarized by the words of former Sri lankan president Jayawardene while in office: 'If I starve the Tamils in the North the Sinhalese in the south will be happy'

    Can any Rajapaske worshippers deny the sentiment they feel?

    Hello again Rohan !

    Your following sentence has no truth in it.

    EDE, Repo is so blind by Rajapaske brothers propoganda that he believes that the only way to prove that the Sri Lanka army did not commit war crimes is to prevent and independent inquiring into it which would have included Sri Lankan allies if it has any left.

    We never white washed the Rajapakse's anywhere. We have had the guts to say No to what we felt was not right – Now I have asked you spineless Apes to condemn the killing of Lakshman K, but, none of you Apes had the guts to go so.

    We are opposing AI and other HR orgs, singling out Sri Lanka, where as other countries who have done so have been set free…. We don't like double standards be it AI or God from heaven !

    This is the double standard that was defeated in Geneve by 29 countries of the Security counsel. Even USA refrained from voting. It's not SL having allies, but, humans with thinking power doing the right thing. We are a unitary state and people need to respect that fact first and also the fact of us making our own decisions.

    Also, Sarath Fonseka, messed up his Agenda – we still respect him for the brave leadership he gave to eliminate Terror !

    When President Mahinda Rajapaksa announced the commission earlier this year, its purpose was ostensibly to find out why a 2002 ceasefire brokered by Norway, and signed by the government and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), broke down. Its chairman, C R de Silva, said in his opening remarks yesterday that the time had come to “consolidate the military victory by addressing the root causes of the conflict and establish national integrity and reconciliation”.

    But several human rights groups, along with organisations representing the country’s Tamil minority, who have long complained of being marginalised, believe the inquiry was designed to deflect UN and other international demands for an investigation into the final stages of the war, in which more than 10,000 Tamil civilians may have been killed. Crucially, the government-appointed inquiry has no mandate to examine this aspect of a conflict which is estimated to have claimed more than 70,000 lives over 30 years.

    Suren Surendiran, a senior member of the Global Tamil Forum, said:“Sri Lanka has fooled the international community for so long and this commission is another one of those eyewashes. All we ask is justice for the thousands who perished in the last few weeks and months and years leading up to the end of the war last year.”

    In June, the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, appointed a three-member panel to advise him on ensuring accountability for the alleged abuses during the war, which ended with the crushing of the last remnants of the LTTE forces in the late spring of 2009.

    As well as accusing them of indiscriminate shelling, rights groups have claimed that government forces blocked access to food and medicine for minority Tamil civilians trapped in the war zone. The rebels have been accused of holding civilians as human shields, killing those trying to escape the violence and forcibly recruiting children as fighters.

    The International Crisis Group think tank said in a report early this year that at least 30,000 civilians could have died in the last phase of the fighting. Earlier this week, a group of 57 US lawmakers wrote to the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, urging her to push for an international investigation.

    Sri Lanka has angrily refused to cooperate with the UN panel or issue visas for its members, saying an external panel is an infringement of the country’s sovereignty.

    Suren Surendiran, a senior member of the Global Tamil Forum, said:“Sri Lanka has fooled the international community for so long and this commission is another one of those eyewashes. All we ask is justice for the thousands who perished in the last few weeks and months and years leading up to the end of the war last year.”

    In June, the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, appointed a three-member panel to advise him on ensuring accountability for the alleged abuses during the war, which ended with the crushing of the last remnants of the LTTE forces in the late spring of 2009.

    As well as accusing them of indiscriminate shelling, rights groups have claimed that government forces blocked access to food and medicine for minority Tamil civilians trapped in the war zone. The rebels have been accused of holding civilians as human shields, killing those trying to escape the violence and forcibly recruiting children as fighters.

    The International Crisis Group think tank said in a report early this year that at least 30,000 civilians could have died in the last phase of the fighting. Earlier this week, a group of 57 US lawmakers wrote to the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, urging her to push for an international investigation.

    Sri Lanka has angrily refused to cooperate with the UN panel or issue visas for its members, saying an external panel is an infringement of the country’s sovereignty.

  26. Sri Lanka: New Evidence of Wartime Abuses
    http://www.hrw.org/en/news/2010/05/20/sri-lanka-new-evidence-wartime-abuses

    Yet another feckless commission is a grossly inadequate response to the numerous credible allegations of war crimes. Damning new evidence of abuses shows why the UN should not let Sri Lanka sweep these abuses under the carpet.

    It looks another 500 War crime Witness reach canada, shark could not catch them. 5 Tamils witness were eaten by the shark when the tried to reach Australia, another 12 were missing before that.

  27. Rajapaksa is blaming instability in Sri Lanka on the LTTE is the only way the majority community can hide their true ambitions.

    It was clear from day 1 of independence in 1948 that tamils were not welcome and not equal.

    It took 30 years for the Tamils to take up arms and that only after the JVP led the way.

    Sinhala community would like the world to forget the loss of citizenship of plantation Tamils of indian descent who have been living in Sri lanka for generations.

    They clealry were not aware the meaning of the Sinhala only act, which forced majority of tamils out of government jobs.

    They also would like you to ignore the fact how successive governments have launched anti tamil progroms such as black July and the burning of Jaffna library.

    The JHU and other sinhalese supremacists have publically claimed that the island belong to the sinhalese and tamils do not need the same rights as the majority community.

  28. EDE, Repo is so blind by Rajapaske brothers propoganda that he believes that the only way to prove that the Sri Lanka army did not commit war crimes is to prevent and independent inquiring into it which would have included Sri Lankan allies if it has any left.

    In Sri Lanka it seems that conspiracy theories against the west is the way that Rajapske brothers can maintain there strong ignorant supporter base without needing to provide evidence.

    Rajapaske is the new king so the population just believes him.

    Fonseka supports a international inquiry on the basis that he and the troops have done nothing wrong yet Ghotabhaya has threatened on BBC program Hard talk that General Fonseka is a traitor and that he will be hanged if he spoke to an independent commission.

  29. Rohan_sri lanka State Terror Victim

    Yes, I saw it.

    No worries, my friend. :)

    When you post anything use only one link in one comment otherwise the AI have to check it before it will appear here

  30. For the zillionth time, Why cannot Amnesty Understand the reason for the GOSL to oppose such investigation ??

    It is very straight forward and has been communicated on may times by many people to the world.

    The simple reason is – Why Only Sri Lanka ???

    Has Amnesty or any other so called, pretending to be HR organizations take any action ever against the war crimes done by the western countries ?????

    You start from USA, UK, Israel etc, then come to Sri Lanka – Sri Lanka was the last of such cases and knowingly, many other HR violations have happened by courtesy of USA and their allies. Nothing against USA here, but, against AI for the double standards.

    Also, AI should understand what exactly happened during the war than just cry out loud because some person lies about seeing a pink elephant. It is quite obvious that AI is mainly barking up on information obtained by the LTTE supporters. The Sat images and the technically proven false video are the only kind of evidence that AI has and explanations to those items have been provided by a legal government (and not a Terrorist organization).

    Also, AI has failed to answer the question on what action needs to be taken against a branded Terrorists group apart from eliminating them, specially, when these Terrorists were,

    1. Having dangerous fire arms in possession
    2. Having a Navel unit
    3. Having an Air force
    4. Acquiring land area in a legitimate country
    5. Terrorizing the people who were in their control areas
    6. Engaging children (as young as 9 years) in war and making them fighters
    7. Having suicide squads
    8. Getting innocent children and other combatants to commit suicide by having a cyanide capsule if they get caught
    9. Killing Tamils who oppose them
    10. Kill innocent people by means of planting bombs in public areas
    11. Smuggle Arms around the world
    12. Smuggle Drugs around the world
    13. Train other Terrorist organizations as Al-Quaida on Suicide missions, Bomb Manufacture and other terror activities
    14. Pay other terrorist organizations
    15. Have an ultimate goal of capturing land mass in north of Sri Lanka and capture the whole Island and also expand this Terror kingdom to South India (Tamilnadu) and parts of many other surrounding countries.
    16. Using innocent people as Human shields during last stages of war
    17. Using innocent people’s houses, public and religious buildings as firing points and arms stores.
    18. Shooting down innocent people who tried to escape the humans shield
    19. Sending suicide bombers along with escaping innocent civilians to blast them selves in the midst of these civilians
    20. Spreading false statements on SLA / GOSL killing people after they them selves killed these people

    Please pardon me if I have not included more on to this list.

    Hence, if AI can give a better solution than elimination of such brutal force, please do spell it out now. (Keep in mind that 4 previous governments and this government of SL, had many peace talks, but in vain as the LTTE Mentally challenged leader only wanted to fight – KP the leader who followed him, confirms this)

    Every year since this sick menace started many innocent died. If GOSL did not eliminate these Apes, it would have still continued. We are not ruling out any possibility of innocent getting killed during the war after all, they were used as human shields. However, this menace had to end for the goodness sake of the whole world – It has happened and what the GOSL needs is applauds and bot brick backs. Hence, we thoroughly feel that what AI is doing is totally unnecessary and out of context + irresponsible. You need to get rid of Mentally sick Terrorists to save Humans and the Human Race. I would be glad if Amnesty could see beyond their nostrils and have some clauses in their HR Bible to separate Terrorists from Humans and actions that are to be taken against terrorists by Humans, for the sake of the humans and the future of the Human Race.

  31. It is clear from looking at Sri lankan census data that successive governments are colonising Tamil areas since independence in order to politically marginalize Tamils by making Tamil dominated areas into Sinhalese dominated areas.

    After Sri lanka gets this homogenous Sinhala Buddhist state Tamils will not have a voice at all, this is the truth of the Sri Lankan political solution.

    If the Rajapaske wanted a true political solution they would have concluded the APRC and enforced it.

    Sinhala mentality does not consider Tamils as equals and thus does not deserve the rights given to the Sinhala buddhist community.

    This is summarized by the words of former Sri lankan president Jayawardene while in office: ‘If I starve the Tamils in the North the Sinhalese in the south will be happy’

    Can any Rajapaske worshippers deny the sentiment they feel?

    EDE, Repo is so blind by Rajapaske brothers propoganda that he believes that the only way to prove that the Sri Lanka army did not commit war crimes is to prevent and independent inquiring into it which would have included Sri Lankan allies if it has any left.

    We never white washed the Rajapakse’s anywhere. We have had the guts to say No to what we felt was not right – Now I have asked you spineless Apes to condemn the killing of Lakshman K, but, none of you Apes had the guts to go so.

    We are opposing AI and other HR orgs, singling out Sri Lanka, where as other countries who have done so have been set free…. We don’t like double standards be it AI or God from heaven !

    This is the double standard that was defeated in Geneve by 29 countries of the Security counsel. Even USA refrained from voting. It’s not SL having allies, but, humans with thinking power doing the right thing. We are a unitary state and people need to respect that fact first and also the fact of us making our own decisions.

    Also, Sarath Fonseka, messed up his Agenda – we still respect him for the brave leadership he gave to eliminate Terror !

  38. Sri Lanka’s civil war inquiry is ‘eyewash’

    When President Mahinda Rajapaksa announced the commission earlier this year, its purpose was ostensibly to find out why a 2002 ceasefire brokered by Norway, and signed by the government and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), broke down. Its chairman, C R de Silva, said in his opening remarks yesterday that the time had come to “consolidate the military victory by addressing the root causes of the conflict and establish national integrity and reconciliation”.

    But several human rights groups, along with organisations representing the country’s Tamil minority, who have long complained of being marginalised, believe the inquiry was designed to deflect UN and other international demands for an investigation into the final stages of the war, in which more than 10,000 Tamil civilians may have been killed. Crucially, the government-appointed inquiry has no mandate to examine this aspect of a conflict which is estimated to have claimed more than 70,000 lives over 30 years.

  44. US criticises Sri Lanka war inquiry

    A Sri Lanka government-backed investigation into alleged war crimes committed during Sri Lanka's bloody civil war has failed to produce any findings, the US state department has reported, raising concerns over the effectiveness of another investigation launched this week.

    The state department said that the Sri Lankan goverment-appointed 'Group of Eminent Persons' had failed to "produce any discernible results" since being set up last year to look into alleged crimes in the final months of the conflict in 2009.

    The Group of Eminent Persons has now been subsumed into a wider investigation, the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC), which was officially launched in Colombo on Wednesday amid concerns that it too will fail to fulfill its mandate.

    The state department acknowledged such fears in the report, saying that the make-up of the investigating team raises "questions concerning the independence and impartiality of some members of the commission," including CR De Silva, the chairman.

    It warns that De Silva's "relationship to the government" and "his involvement in the failure" of the previous commission "could compromise the independence and impartiality" of the new investigation.

    SL did not abandon its citizens to 'endure a regime of barbarism' under the LTTE. It crushed the terrorists and their capability for creating murder and mayhem amongst the population of the island of Sri Lanka.

    It wasn't "international mechanisms of justice" which destroyed the human rights-abusing capabilities of the LTTE. It was the military power of the SL state.

    AI want to make non-state actors (e.g. Taliban) accountable for their terrorism yet shy away from applying the same rigorous standards to Sri Lanka's late and unlamented LTTE.

    With the LTTE's innumerable suicide bombingsdeliberately targeting civilians, and thus constituting a war crime, AI doesn't have look far from its London offices to find LTTE war criminals. A recruiter of child soldiers for the LTTE lives in South London.

    AI rightly decry a situation where "…Afghan civilians will continue to believe that they will be abandoned by the world and left to endure another regime of barbarism." http://tinyurl.com/3y7pjgj

    SL did not abandon its citizens to 'endure a regime of barbarism' under the LTTE. It crushed the terrorists and their capability for creating murder and mayhem amongst the population of the island of Sri Lanka.

    It wasn't "international mechanisms of justice" which destroyed the human rights-abusing capabilities of the LTTE. It was the military power of the SL state.

    AI want to make non-state actors (e.g. Taliban) accountable for their terrorism yet shy away from applying the same rigorous standards to Sri Lanka's late and unlamented LTTE.

    With the LTTE's innumerable suicide bombingsdeliberately targeting civilians, and thus constituting a war crime, AI doesn't have look far from its London offices to find LTTE war criminals. A recruiter of child soldiers for the LTTE lives in South London.

  60. Tamil fishermen, who had put to sea from here in 400 boats, were injured after personnel of Sri Lankan navy allegedly hurled stones at them between Arichalmunai and Katchativu.

    The fishermen, fisheries department officials said, adding five fishermen suffered injuries in the head while some others received internal injuries and they had been treated at private hospitals.

    The Sri Lanka navy man also surrounded the boats of the fisherman

    Good to see you talk, but, sad to see you running away from questions – I still would like to know answer to one question (keep aside the other dozen I asked) – Do you agree with the killing of Lakshman Kadiragamar and Neelan Thiruchelvan and other 30 + Tamil leaders by the LTTE ????

    You are a hard core Sri Lankan Terror State supporter

    I would prefer to do so that be a Terrorist LTTE Ape supporter – Sorry !!

    Even the Sinhalese have been saying that the Tamils cannot even open their mouths. Why?

    I am not sure which Singhalees you are talking of – Tamils here open their mouths not only to Eat, but also to talk and express their free views.

    Let me tell you a story – My friend's (A Tamil from Jaffna), his cousin was arrested by the CID about 3 years back in Colombo, after getting to know that he was driving a prominent LTTE leader's vehicle. When arrested, My friend's cousin had the guts to admit it and say "When we come here, you arrest us, the same way, when we are there, the LTTE arrests us, forcefully get us to do their dirty jobs – So, what can I do ? If I did not drive his jeep, I would have been killed – I need to live there as well as here – You please give me a solution so that I could live my life"

    Now the answer might be surprising to you tiger tails – The CID actually had a good laugh along with him and sent him off after treating him with lunch that day – that sat around the same table – talked about personal lives and also offered him a job if he wishes to come to Colombo to live. Please note that this is a true story and not made up like in your Tamil nut or Rohan's posts.

    But, he did go back, did the same job and during the last stages of war, managed to get his family including the parents and come back to Colombo with the blessings of the Army – So don't think that SLA or the government are unholy or racists or unreasonable – they do understand the sad situation and plea of the innocent Tamil citizen – Don't think they enjoy stopping vehicles on the road for random checking (immaterial of ethnicity – even we got stopped often) – even they would like to be in their barracks than on the road.

    Bottom line is, there are plenty of Tamils who openly talk in public and criticize the government and some openly supporting logics of LTTE – Like the TNA MP's – but, there is no violence against them – Why ?????? It is not the thought process we are against – it is the Terror acts we are against – If TNA takes arms tomorrow, they will be destroyed – but, they can voice their opinions plenty and more and nothing would happen and the opinions will be discussed – Might be hard for you to understand ha ??

Unless the Sri Lankan state is able to confirm that those shown in the photo are alive, the photo will be a crucial evidence of proof documenting war crimes and Tamil genocide

    Three points !!

    1. Having a bunch of people arrested does not mean "genocide" – again, you need to brush up on your English skills and get to know means of words before you start using them – will be a good idea to use a Dictionary – find plenty of them on line.
    2. If LTTE members were hiding along with Civilians, obviously there should be a screening process and you cannot call it wrong if the SLA arrested all of them for screening purposes.
    3. And the most important point – Sri Lanka should also be able to show the army personnel in the photograph are actual army members – We know how LTTE manipulated many scenes (Including video) to disgrace the SLA. Hence, we need to ensure that the soldiers are from SLA and the people are civilians + LTTE and not another 'Ape story' of the Tiger tails !

  73. Why does Amnesty International take on the Taliban yet run away from the LTTE?

    Truly, the ‘international human rights community’ moves in mysterious ways, completely unfathomable to us mere mortals.

  74. The Canadian government confirmed Thursday that its Navy has boarded a Tamil refugee ship headed toward Vancouver, amid concerns that some on board may be members of the Tamil Tigers terrorist organization.

    However, a group that represents the Tamil population in Canada said the allegations are exaggerated.

    David Poopalapillai, spokesman for the Toronto-based Canadian Tamil Congress, called the claims that Tamil Tigers are on board "propaganda" started in Sri Lanka.

    "For the Sri Lankan government, every Tamil is a kind of a terrorist," he said.

    Poopalapillai said the Canadian Tamil Congress views those on board as refugees seeking asylum from persecution in Sri Lanka.

    Poopalapillai said conditions are still bad for Tamils in Sri Lanka. He said that under Canadian policy, the approaching ship could not be turned away and urged the government to treat the passengers "well" and according to national law. If they are found to be legitimate refugees, he said, they should be allowed to stay.

  75. India, the world’s largest democracy finds its influence eroded by Chinese gains.

    it approaches the 63rd anniversary of its independence this weekend, India is under siege.

    The world’s largest democracy – a necessary cliché here – is finally making impressive economic gains, and establishing itself as a tough-minded great power, in contrast to the tender-minded Nehru-Gandhi decades. But, largely for these very reasons, India finds itself confronted by dictatorial China or its proxies – most notably, Pakistan and now Sri Lanka.

    To the north, complementing Tibet-based Chinese missiles aimed at Indian cities, Communists tied to Beijing have taken over Nepal, long considered part of India’s sphere of influence. Forty-eight years after the Sino-Indian War in the Himalayas, and with the recent fall of the discredited Nepalese monarchy, it matters not that some Communists play a democratic game and others are rural insurgents. What matters is that India’s main Himalayan buffer against Chinese expansion is gone.

    To the south, neither Sri Lanka nor the delighted Chinese are trying to hide Beijing’s effective capture of the civil-war-weary island. Traditional ties with India have been overwhelmed by a deluge of Chinese products, aid, investment and infrastructure projects. China’s aim is a major base on the Indian Ocean to counter the Indian and U.S. navies. A strong presence in the Indian Ocean used to be a Russian threat. Now it is a Chinese near-reality.

    To the east, China is firmly allied with the brutal military regime in Burma, also known as Myanmar, supplying arms to keep the Burmese people subjugated. India unwisely seeks to compete for the junta’s favour. Indian interests in all of Southeast Asia are imperilled as China spreads its economic influence, including free trade with the 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. Again, Beijing’s strategic goal is naval control.

    To the west, the military-dominated Pakistani government has not only reignited its compulsive drive to seize the Indian-held Kashmir Valley, as shown by anti-India protests by Kashmiris even as floods devastated much of Pakistan. It is pushing hard for control of Afghanistan when U.S. and North Atlantic Treaty Organization troops pull out, and in the process seeking to end India’s diplomatic presence in Afghanistan. Beijing would be euphoric if the international mission to save Afghanistan failed. And, never forget, China made Pakistan’s nuclear weapons possible.

    China’s direct or indirect pressures on India are a vital part of its campaign, now openly proclaimed, to establish itself – and be recognized – as a global power, not just a regional one. But, despite its spreading economic clout, and its intimidation tactics and arm-twisting of smaller countries, it is still far from its goal. The U.S. Pacific Fleet, whose theatre of operations includes the Indian Ocean, is still the dominant military force in Asia and the Pacific, as demonstrated by its recent exercise off the Korean Peninsula and China itself – protested mightily by Beijing. India remains the dominant regional power in South Asia, by virtue of having won four wars against Pakistan. Its navy is comparable to China’s and boasts two aircraft carriers, while Beijing still has none.

    But there is no doubt that China has made substantial gains all around India – in Tibet and Nepal, in Sri Lanka, in Burma and Southeast Asia, in supporting Pakistan in Afghanistan.

  76. I have sympathy for the Tamils

    Ever since the country’s independence from Britain, the Sinhalese majority has treated the Tamil minority abysmally.

    They have denied the Tamils educational and professional advancement, and frequently made them victims of official discrimination and even brutality.

    But the island’s ethno-politics have grown into a-plague-on-both-their-houses drama. In response to the cruelty of the Sri Lankan government, the Tamils developed their own force, the Tamil Tigers.

    The pitiless and sadistic ari Lanka’s government are remorseless towards the Tamils still.

    I have no doubt that Sri Lankan Tamils continue to suffer repression by Sri Lankan officials, even though the Tamil ended last year.

    Thousands of Tamils are said to be held in detention camps with appalling conditions, and there have been reports of summary executions.

    I am sure most of the Tamils on board the ship have legitimate claims to refugee status

Neither the former LTTE members of KP, Karuna and Pillayan or the thousands of Cadres that were rehabilitated and sent back to society are treated that.

Is it the reason why Mr. Ken Balendra managed to be the CEO of John Keells group for many years and be recognized as one of the best CEO's the group ever had ? Do you still want me to give you more example to negate your lie ??

    But the island’s ethno-politics have grown into a-plague-on-both-their-houses drama. In response to the cruelty of the Sri Lankan government, the Tamils developed their own force, the Tamil Tigers.

    I have no doubt that Sri Lankan Tamils continue to suffer repression by Sri Lankan officials, even though the Tamil ended last year.

    Tamil did not end last year – In fact, the Tamils got their freedom from Terrorists last year – They are living much better lives – they have job opportunities, their lands are back as there are no Apes to build bunkers int heir houses and they are enjoying life.

    Thousands of Tamils are said to be held in detention camps with appalling conditions, and there have been reports of summary executions.

    Former LTTE members are held in rehabilitation camps – there are no detention camps in Sri Lanka – may be you have mistaken to Alcatraz of USA. The only executions that are happening in Sri Lanka are Project executions – Projects of development work of infra and HR executions. You Apes must be really sad to see Sri lanka develop and most importantly, the Tamils, who were under obligation to you apes are now free of those Ape bondings ha ? Booo Hooo !!

    Three points !!

    1. Having a bunch of people arrested does not mean “genocide” – again, you need to brush up on your English skills and get to know means of words before you start using them – will be a good idea to use a Dictionary – find plenty of them on line.
    2. If LTTE members were hiding along with Civilians, obviously there should be a screening process and you cannot call it wrong if the SLA arrested all of them for screening purposes.
    3. And the most important point – Sri Lanka should also be able to show the army personnel in the photograph are actual army members – We know how LTTE manipulated many scenes (Including video) to disgrace the SLA. Hence, we need to ensure that the soldiers are from SLA and the people are civilians + LTTE and not another ‘Ape story’ of the Tiger tails !

  83. The Canadian government confirmed Thursday that its Navy has boarded a Tamil refugee ship headed toward Vancouver, amid concerns that some on board may be members of the Tamil Tigers terrorist organization.

    However, a group that represents the Tamil population in Canada said the allegations are exaggerated.

    David Poopalapillai, spokesman for the Toronto-based Canadian Tamil Congress, called the claims that Tamil Tigers are on board “propaganda” started in Sri Lanka.

    “For the Sri Lankan government, every Tamil is a kind of a terrorist,” he said.

    Poopalapillai said the Canadian Tamil Congress views those on board as refugees seeking asylum from persecution in Sri Lanka.

    Poopalapillai said conditions are still bad for Tamils in Sri Lanka. He said that under Canadian policy, the approaching ship could not be turned away and urged the government to treat the passengers “well” and according to national law. If they are found to be legitimate refugees, he said, they should be allowed to stay.

  84. India, the world’s largest democracy finds its influence eroded by Chinese gains.

    it approaches the 63rd anniversary of its independence this weekend, India is under siege.

    The world’s largest democracy – a necessary cliché here – is finally making impressive economic gains, and establishing itself as a tough-minded great power, in contrast to the tender-minded Nehru-Gandhi decades. But, largely for these very reasons, India finds itself confronted by dictatorial China or its proxies – most notably, Pakistan and now Sri Lanka.

    To the north, complementing Tibet-based Chinese missiles aimed at Indian cities, Communists tied to Beijing have taken over Nepal, long considered part of India’s sphere of influence. Forty-eight years after the Sino-Indian War in the Himalayas, and with the recent fall of the discredited Nepalese monarchy, it matters not that some Communists play a democratic game and others are rural insurgents. What matters is that India’s main Himalayan buffer against Chinese expansion is gone.

    To the south, neither Sri Lanka nor the delighted Chinese are trying to hide Beijing’s effective capture of the civil-war-weary island. Traditional ties with India have been overwhelmed by a deluge of Chinese products, aid, investment and infrastructure projects. China’s aim is a major base on the Indian Ocean to counter the Indian and U.S. navies. A strong presence in the Indian Ocean used to be a Russian threat. Now it is a Chinese near-reality.

    To the east, China is firmly allied with the brutal military regime in Burma, also known as Myanmar, supplying arms to keep the Burmese people subjugated. India unwisely seeks to compete for the junta’s favour. Indian interests in all of Southeast Asia are imperilled as China spreads its economic influence, including free trade with the 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. Again, Beijing’s strategic goal is naval control.

    To the west, the military-dominated Pakistani government has not only reignited its compulsive drive to seize the Indian-held Kashmir Valley, as shown by anti-India protests by Kashmiris even as floods devastated much of Pakistan. It is pushing hard for control of Afghanistan when U.S. and North Atlantic Treaty Organization troops pull out, and in the process seeking to end India’s diplomatic presence in Afghanistan. Beijing would be euphoric if the international mission to save Afghanistan failed. And, never forget, China made Pakistan’s nuclear weapons possible.

    China’s direct or indirect pressures on India are a vital part of its campaign, now openly proclaimed, to establish itself – and be recognized – as a global power, not just a regional one. But, despite its spreading economic clout, and its intimidation tactics and arm-twisting of smaller countries, it is still far from its goal. The U.S. Pacific Fleet, whose theatre of operations includes the Indian Ocean, is still the dominant military force in Asia and the Pacific, as demonstrated by its recent exercise off the Korean Peninsula and China itself – protested mightily by Beijing. India remains the dominant regional power in South Asia, by virtue of having won four wars against Pakistan. Its navy is comparable to China’s and boasts two aircraft carriers, while Beijing still has none.

    But there is no doubt that China has made substantial gains all around India – in Tibet and Nepal, in Sri Lanka, in Burma and Southeast Asia, in supporting Pakistan in Afghanistan.

  85. I have sympathy for the Tamils

    Ever since the country’s independence from Britain, the Sinhalese majority has treated the Tamil minority abysmally.

    They have denied the Tamils educational and professional advancement, and frequently made them victims of official discrimination and even brutality.

    But the island’s ethno-politics have grown into a-plague-on-both-their-houses drama. In response to the cruelty of the Sri Lankan government, the Tamils developed their own force, the Tamil Tigers.

    The pitiless and sadistic ari Lanka’s government are remorseless towards the Tamils still.

    I have no doubt that Sri Lankan Tamils continue to suffer repression by Sri Lankan officials, even though the Tamil ended last year.

    Thousands of Tamils are said to be held in detention camps with appalling conditions, and there have been reports of summary executions.

    I am sure most of the Tamils on board the ship have legitimate claims to refugee status

    “For the Sri Lankan government, every Tamil is a kind of a terrorist,” he said.

    Sri Lankan government did not think of Lakshman Kadiragamar or Neelan Thiruchelvan as Terrorists though they were Tamils. Neither the former LTTE members of KP, Karuna and Pillayan or the thousands of Cadres that were rehabilitated and sent back to society are treated that. Millions who live peacefully in the land as Sri Lankans are not treated wrong. So, guy with the Poo who said that is terribly mistaken, but, then again, what could we expect – he is a low mental Ape !!

    Gananathan Says:
    August 13th, 2010 at 2:01 am

    I have sympathy for the Tamils

    We all do – Because, the Low mentality Terrorists try to show that all Tamils are Terrorist LTTE supporters, which is not. I feel sorry for the Tamils because Tamils them selves don’t know how to stop these Apes of LTTE of dragging their good name in to the Ape Terrorist acts.

    Ever since the country’s independence from Britain, the Sinhalese majority has treated the Tamil minority abysmally.

    Is that why you killed the Prime Minister to be Lakshman Kadiragamar ?????

    They have denied the Tamils educational and professional advancement, and frequently made them victims of official discrimination and even brutality.

    Is that why Dr. A.C. Visvalingam is still a reputed structural engineer who is involved in all government high rise projects ? Is it why Murali managed to play for the Sri Lankan team for 18 years, Vice Captain the team and also keep a world record ??? Is it the reason why Mr. Ken Balendra managed to be the CEO of John Keells group for many years and be recognized as one of the best CEO’s the group ever had ? Do you still want me to give you more example to negate your lie ??

    But the island’s ethno-politics have grown into a-plague-on-both-their-houses drama. In response to the cruelty of the Sri Lankan government, the Tamils developed their own force, the Tamil Tigers.

    To kill the innocent civilians and all Tamils who opposed them ??????

    I have no doubt that Sri Lankan Tamils continue to suffer repression by Sri Lankan officials, even though the Tamil ended last year.

    Tamil did not end last year – In fact, the Tamils got their freedom from Terrorists last year – They are living much better lives – they have job opportunities, their lands are back as there are no Apes to build bunkers int heir houses and they are enjoying life.

    Thousands of Tamils are said to be held in detention camps with appalling conditions, and there have been reports of summary executions.

    Former LTTE members are held in rehabilitation camps – there are no detention camps in Sri Lanka – may be you have mistaken to Alcatraz of USA. The only executions that are happening in Sri Lanka are Project executions – Projects of development work of infra and HR executions. You Apes must be really sad to see Sri lanka develop and most importantly, the Tamils, who were under obligation to you apes are now free of those Ape bondings ha ? Booo Hooo !!

    I am sure most of the Tamils on board the ship have legitimate claims to refugee status

    Oh Yeah – They do ! They supported the LTTE or they need jobs in the west for better money – very much legitimate for the Apes who litter the western backyards, but live on “Sudda’s” Throw Away items !

    Oh my my :) …… please do continue to educate us …

    You-yourself speak volumes of your own personality.

    Hence there is no need for me to elaborate any further.

    The problem is not any racist superiority complex associated with Mahavansa but your own inferiority complex.

    ———-

    Maha Vamsa is a “Chronicle of the Superior Race” that glorifies Racial Superiority and promotes Race Hate.

    Various writers have called into question the morality of the account given in the Mahavamsa, where king Dutthagamani regrets his actions in killing the king Elara and his troops.

    The Mahavamsa equates the killing of the Tamils as being on par with the killing of “sinners and wild beasts”, and the Dutthagamani’s sorrow and regret are assuaged.

    I detest such racist document !!!

    Such hate-creeds have left Sri Lanka with a bloodied history.

    Only by expunging the hate-filled parts, can SL move ahead to better times.

  88. Wel….l you do…. have a “Mahavamsa” mindset

    Yes, that “Mahavamsa” book which was written by a mad monk to spew a Racial Supremacist theory that has divided the people and twisted their mindsets

    Well let me enlighten you again !!

    The name “Mahavansa” means “The Great Race” or “The Superior Race”.

    To make matters worse, the Colonizers twisted the Sri Lankan history conveniently to concoct a false Aryan race and a false Dravidian race – to divide and rule.

    This Aryan-Dravidian clap-trap was concocted by European colonizers and their slick henchmen like Max Mueller and Bishop Robert Caldwell.

    The Sinhalese were stupid enough to merrily swallow such bull-shit theories.

    The effects of similar Supremacist Racist theories led to the Nazi Holocaust, the Rwanda Genocide and the Tamil War.

    Sri Lanka will return to everlasting peace only when the Mahavamsa mindset (Superior Race mindset) is jettisoned.

    Otherwise, this racist poison will again engulf the Sinhalese

Colombo has sentenced him for a 'dishonorable discharge from rank pending approval of the President,' media reports further said.

    While Colombo prosecuted the former General for whatever reasons, he had gone on record for publicly stating while in uniform that Sri Lanka belonged to the Sinhalese and Tamil Nadu politicians were jokers.

    First of all, whee on earth did U come from ?? I don’t think I have seen your handle before, IS this Rohan again posing with another handle as he is pussy?? Anyways,

    You-yourself speak volumes of your own personality.

    As mentioned above – So do you guys – You guys only show your pussy spineless cowardly personalities – You never answer questions, but hide behind computers like pip-squeek whiners and copy and paste rubbish from Tamil nut, where most stories are made up and are blunt lies.

    Why not have a proper discussion ever ??? Because you guys are lying and do not have points to back you up – If you have a firm personality, tell me whether killing Lakshman K was the right thing???? Comon Pussy – bring it on !!

    The problem is not any racist superiority complex associated with Mahavansa but your own inferiority complex

    Mahavansa ??? Where did the worlds only document on history of a nation come into the picture here ??????? Who spoke of Mahavansa ? I don’t recall any post here (in this post) that spoke of Mahavansa.

    You speak of a superiority complex that I have – I totally agree – Indeed I feel a Roaring Lion in front of you Pussies who run away ! Neither me nor EDE ever ran away from any question and we have always challenged you and the AI on what we feel is right – What have you Spineless Pussies done ??? Try hide behind AI who also are naked – LOL !! Indeed I feel far superior to you, but, most humble to those who know me in person immaterial of Ethnicity or any other factor – Can you pussies say something like that with a straight face ?? I bet not !!! – Here is the chance to prove me wrong – challenge me you pussy !!

    Also, if you have had any knowledge of Mahavansa, king Gamunu’s words are mentioned as “This war is not against Tamils, but to unit this country and bring it back to it’s glory” (as it was divided and in dire straights then) We all know that as soon as King Elara was defeated, a tomb was built and every citizen of the country was ordered by Gamnu to pay respect – even he got down from his charade when passing it – This is the respect that great Sri Lankans had for their slain Enemies – Tell me another country who would have such culture please …. I seriously haven’t heard of another country with such values and would love to know that there are many other countries as ours in the world….

    So, if your Pea Brain cannot fathom that out, it is not my loss, but your loss – meaning, you seriously do not have brain capacity of a modern Human – Sorry, but I cannot help it !!

    Wel….l you do…. have a “Mahavamsa” mindset

    I just can't help it if you think that I should not read a historic document (actually, I have not read the whole book), and gather information from it. I find no reason to believe that a document that has been written for many years by several scholars and also has around it other supporting documents (Like Deepa wansa, Deega Wansa, Rathnawaliya etc) that caries the same story.

    With calling this knowledge as a mind set, you are also arguing about the existence of all other historic documents as the Cabala, Bible and the Qu'ran – Do you call them "Bible Mindset" and "Qu'ran Mindset" ?? They were written for religious purposes, but unfortunately, I cannot name another book that caries the history of a nation as such book does not exist to my knowledge.
    Actually, there are a few chronicles around – Do U question their existance by this??? Why only leave Mahawansa out ?? Go through the list, Sri Lanka has the most number of Chronicles – and they all say the same thing though written by different people and there are supporting docs from the neighbouring countries as India, Burma, China, Thailand (Siam) that we dealt with in the past.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronicle

    I trust that you have the LTTE mindset in this regard – Meaning, they tried to twist the story in the early 1970's with a good for nothing lie…. There is no evidence what so ever behind this story. So I hope that it would only be a myth like Atlanta – a few do have that "Masturbatory fantasy" about Atlanta, so it is with Peelam I guess :) !

    Yes, that “Mahavamsa” book which was written by a mad monk to spew a Racial Supremacist theory that has divided the people and twisted their mindsets

    This again shows that you have very low knowledge of what you are talking about ! Mahawamsa was not written by a single person (like the Bible) and was written by many scholars of Many an eras. It's been written even today and it will be written in the future too…. It is a never ending story – will be there as long as the Human race and this country of ours exists.

    The name “Mahavansa” means “The Great Race” or “The Superior Race”.

    Again wires crossed ha ?? Wansaya is not "Race" in it's right context. Wansaya is more a clan and yes, Any clan has the right to believe that they are Great ! Do you put your selves down ?? I am sure you trust that you are great too…. Who says no ?? It is a Human thing – I am sure the English and the Americans and everyone has their own superiority complex – there is nothing wrong with it. It is a negative perspective only for someone who demeans and devalues him self – Another is superior only in the eyes of a person who sees that person as a superior and demeans him self to be the less superior, isn't it ???? Have a Banana, you should be able to get it !!

    To make matters worse, the Colonizers twisted the Sri Lankan history conveniently to concoct a false Aryan race and a false Dravidian race – to divide and rule.

    Actually, this is where they started respecting us and not treat us slaves. When the English got to know the Chronicles of Sri Lanka, they found a new respect to this great nation. That's whee our aristocrats again got a chance to represent our country in the courts and governments of England – Ha ?? So, having a Chronicle and supporting ruins + other requirements has not done us wrong ha ??

    This Aryan-Dravidian clap-trap was concocted by European colonizers and their slick henchmen like Max Mueller and Bishop Robert Caldwell.

    You have the right to your opinion, but that does not mean that the majority should share the same. As at now, it is like the Luciferians talking of Christians – You are out numbered by huge margins only because, your belief does not contain any evidence.

    The Sinhalese were stupid enough to merrily swallow such bull-shit theories.

    I think the Sri Lankan Singhalees have their own stories to believe in and do not need any other made up stories to sleep at night… !

    The effects of similar Supremacist Racist theories led to the Nazi Holocaust, the Rwanda Genocide and the Tamil War.

    Not even close – Tell me did Hitler have a single Jew in his government ?? (I don't know of Rwanda – so me no talk of it) GOSL, has many Tamils and some who were opted Prime ministers as Lakshman K was killed by the Apes of LTTE – So, are LTTE Racists towards Tamils ??

    Sri Lanka will return to everlasting peace only when the Mahavamsa mindset (Superior Race mindset) is jettisoned.

    Or is it after changing the mindset of people like you ???? In this case, You – meaning LTTE mindset (NOT TAMILS) are a clear minority. So, I think it will be easier to change the mindset of the minority and let the majority Sri Lankans live the way they are – If you do not want to change, not a worry, but let the peaceful people of Sri Lanka be.

    Trust you will have the brains to understand the crust of what I have mentioned and not look at it in a shallow manner as most of you apes do.

    Read this – it would summarize what Mahavwamsa is.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahavamsa

    Let me give a few extracts.

    "The historical accuracy of the Mahavamsa, given the time when it was written, is considered to be astonishing[9], although the material prior to the death of Asoka is not considered to be trustworthy and is mostly legend."

    Mostly a Legend – Understood – No arguments – Talks of a Lion fathering a kid – trusted to be Lion Clan – Human.

    Also seems that you are sharing a thought process that came in to lime light in the 1930's by Hon. G.G. Ponnambalam. Damn Shame !! Trying to negate a historical document from points put out by GG only because he thought so !!

    Yes, that “Mahavamsa” book which was written by a mad monk to spew a Racial Supremacist theory that has divided the people and twisted their mindsets

    This again shows that you have very low knowledge of what you are talking about ! Mahawamsa was not written by a single person (like the Bible) and was written by many scholars of Many an eras. It's been written even today and it will be written in the future too…. It is a never ending story – will be there as long as the Human race and this country of ours exists.

    The name “Mahavansa” means “The Great Race” or “The Superior Race”.

    Again wires crossed ha ?? Wansaya is not "Race" in it's right context. Wansaya is more a clan and yes, Any clan has the right to believe that they are Great ! Do you put your selves down ?? I am sure you trust that you are great too…. Who says no ?? It is a Human thing – I am sure the English and the Americans and everyone has their own superiority complex – there is nothing wrong with it. It is a negative perspective only for someone who demeans and devalues him self – Another is superior only in the eyes of a person who sees that person as a superior and demeans him self to be the less superior, isn't it ???? Have a Banana, you should be able to get it !!

    To make matters worse, the Colonizers twisted the Sri Lankan history conveniently to concoct a false Aryan race and a false Dravidian race – to divide and rule.

    Actually, this is where they started respecting us and not treat us slaves. When the English got to know the Chronicles of Sri Lanka, they found a new respect to this great nation. That's whee our aristocrats again got a chance to represent our country in the courts and governments of England – Ha ??

    This Aryan-Dravidian clap-trap was concocted by European colonizers and their slick henchmen like Max Mueller and Bishop Robert Caldwell.

    You have the right to your opinion, but that does not mean that the majority should share the same. As at now, it is like the Luciferians talking of Christians – You are out numbered by huge margins only because, your belief does not contain any evidence.

    I think the Sri Lankan Singhalees have their own stories to believe in and do not need any other made up stories to sleep at night… !

    Not even close – Tell me did Hitler have a single Jew in his government ?? (I don't know of Rwanda – so me no talk of it) GOSL, has many Tamils and some who were opted Prime ministers as Lakshman K was killed by the Apes of LTTE – So, are LTTE Racists towards Tamils ??

    Sri Lanka will return to everlasting peace only when the Mahavamsa mindset (Superior Race mindset) is jettisoned.

    Or is it after changing the mindset of people like you ???? In this case, You – meaning LTTE mindset (NOT TAMILS) are a clear minority. So, I think it will be easier to change the mindset of the minority and let the majority Sri Lankans live the way they are – If you do not want to change, not a worry, but let the peaceful people of Sri Lanka be.

    Read this – it would summarize what Mahavwamsa is.

    Let me give a few extracts.

    "The historical accuracy of the Mahavamsa, given the time when it was written, is considered to be astonishing[9], although the material prior to the death of Asoka is not considered to be trustworthy and is mostly legend."

    Mostly a Legend – Understood – No arguments – Talks of a Lion fathering a kid – trusted to be Lion Clan – Human.

    Also seems that you are sharing a thought process that came in to lime light in the 1930's by Hon. G.G. Ponnambalam. Damn Shame !! Trying to negate a historical document from points put out by GG only because he thought so !!

    Hey Rohan, you might fool your White Masters & Madams with this nonsense, but let's stick to some basic facts about the Chencholai 'orphanage bombing, shall we? It was being used as a training camp and thus a legitimate target.

    It's a terrible shame that there were kids in there, but the responsibility for their deaths lies in the hands of the LTTE.

    Instead of appalled and disgusted that the LTTE were forcing Tamil kids in the Vanni to fight, you overseas pro-LTTE groupies were quite happy to encourage the combat from the safety of the West.

    Who was responsible for deaths of Tamil civilians in 2009? The LTTE and people like you – their overseas supporters.

    Key extracts from the second part of DBS Jeyaraj's interview with KP, currently a guest of the SL state.
    http://dbsjeyaraj.com/dbsj/archives/1631

    Q: "Did you not try to save the civilians by getting the LTTE to release them?"

    KP says: "I did try at the start.

    There was even an offer by the Americans to transport them by sea to Trincomalee. But the LTTE hierarchy was not agreeable."

    You made the wrong choices for over 30 years and still continue to make them, now.

    I almost admire the Eelamists' capacity for never learning from their mistakes.

    Wel….l you do…. have a “Mahavamsa” mindset

    I just can’t help it if you think that I should not read a historic document (actually, I have not read the whole book), and gather information from it. I find no reason to believe that a document that has been written for many years by several scholars and also has around it other supporting documents (Like Deepa wansa, Deega Wansa, Rathnawaliya etc) that caries the same story.

    With calling this knowledge as a mind set, you are also arguing about the existence of all other historic documents as the Cabala, Bible and the Qu’ran – Do you call them “Bible Mindset” and “Qu’ran Mindset” ?? They were written for religious purposes, but unfortunately, I cannot name another book that caries the history of a nation as such book does not exist to my knowledge.
    Actually, there are a few chronicles around – Do U question their existance by this??? Why only leave Mahawansa out ?? Go through the list, Sri Lanka has the most number of Chronicles – and they all say the same thing though written by different people and there are supporting docs from the neighbouring countries as India, Burma, China, Thailand (Siam) that we dealt with in the past.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronicle

    I trust that you have the LTTE mindset in this regard – Meaning, they tried to twist the story in the early 1970′s with a good for nothing lie…. There is no evidence what so ever behind this story. So I hope that it would only be a myth like Atlanta – a few do have that “Masturbatory fantasy” about Atlanta, so it is with Peelam I guess :) !

I am sure you trust that you are great too…. Who says no ?? It is a Human thing – I am sure the English and the Americans and everyone has their own superiority complex – there is nothing wrong with it.

    When children are plucked away, violently, hearts bleeds in grief.

    These children and their parents faced decades of war, food embargos and then the tsunami.

    “Our deep sorrow is with their loved ones during this time of grief -for this senseless loss, and a promise to work for a better and more peaceful tomorrow for other children is the only glowing tribute to those young hearts that are not among us today”, said a caller on a Talk Radio on Monday.

    Many Tamils, particularly in the diaspora communities expressed their sadness but also anger on the airwaves and several online portals over the horrific incident.

    However the Sri Lankan authorities seem to be paying scant regard to loss human life, children.

    Colombo, New York, Geneva, 15 August 2006 – The bombing on Monday of a Vallepuram compound in Mullaitivu district that reportedly killed dozens of girls and wounded many more is a shocking result of the rising violence in Sri Lanka, UNICEF said today.“These children are innocent victims of violence,” said Ann M. Veneman, UNICEF Executive Director. “We call on all parties to respect international humanitarian law and ensure children and the places where they live, study and play are protected from harm.”

    The compound in the northern part of the country was bombed, reportedly killing as many as 40 adolescent girls. Some 100 children were wounded, many critically. Girls from various schools in the nearby district of Mullaitivu and Kilinochchi were staying overnight at the compound, attending a two-day course in first-aid.

    UNICEF staff from a nearby office immediately visited the compound to assess the situation and to provide fuel and supplies for the hospital as well as counselling support for the injured students and the bereaved families.

    This latest incident comes amidst escalating hostilities in Sri Lanka in recent weeks, where tens of thousands of children were displaced from their homes. Hundreds of children have been injured, lost family members, and live in constant fear of the violence and continuous shelling of their communities.

    Wait a minute…. the Sri Lanka Army did the killings not our heroes . They were protecting the innocent Tamil civilians !!

    The freedom fighters were surrounded on all sights.

    The most ruthless army in whole wide world- Bloodthirsty Sri Lanka Army – could wait it out…. until ammunition run !!!

    What was the rush… other than genocidal sadism to butcher as many little innocent Tamil babies as possible !!

  129. Arunthavarajah Anna,

    I was the first person to use 'Fluffer' — so don't steal that from me! :)

    Anyway, as far as 'Man Love' goes, its 'ThamilMahan' who admitted he has a 'man-crush' for Mahinda mama and his big moustache.

    ThamilMahan said: “I cannot wait to see the Rajapakse brother on the dock of the International Courts.”

    Forget the 'Aryan' nonsense. We all bleed the same blood, or haven't you noticed?

    I would like to know whether if you are Gananathan That I communicated with earlier – It is hard to keep Tab of who is writing what as the names seem to change even before my pillow cases.

    Aryan origins of Sinhalese ???? …… now you are hallucinating !!!

    Hmmm…. So you want to check my knowladge on history it seems… When did you last read a historical document and can you give me a few references pls.

    Well, according to the written evidence we have, Singhala race started after the Aryans coming down. That is where they say that the new race started – a mix of the people who were here and the people who came down. But, we also need to keep in mind that anyway the migration to Sri Lanka hundreds of thousands of years ago anyway happened via India, though the people living here had their own rituals and life styles. Not at all similar to the life styles, practices and rituals of south Indian people.

    There is nothing Aryan about any Sinhalese and never was !

    I trust the above "minute" explanation would make you realize that the Race Singhalees do have a link to the Aryans – Actually, like today's Sri Lankans, Singhalees were a mixed race – Even the Muslims and Greeks (500 B.C.) who resided here and had families for some time were latterly called Singhalees.

    I wonder what made you think that I would believe your Bull Shit nonsense over a chronicle with enough and more evidence and proof. Do you want me to believe you ??? What evidence do you have to support your claim ???? Pls. provide me with same and I will start believing you. As for me, I have several books and many remains of the ancient civilizations to back me up + many documents written out side this tiny Island that would support the claims.

    Sinhalese largely descended from low caste Indian Tamil immigrants.

    This is not mentioned in any of the documents I have read, however, if it's true, I applaud them for the majestic kingdoms they have had and the wonderful work they have done in all trades – i.e. they had best of engineering, well civilized culture (that the English wanted to preserve and didn't want to mess up), world renowned for trade and was the center of trading world and managed to fend off all attacks from many nations including South Indian and western !

    No small feat for a Low cast bunch of Tamils who apparently had created a brand new culture that does not have any similarities to their south Indian counterparts ha ??? Bravo !!

    Yep…..Nothing Aryan indeed.

    However, I don't think our little conversation on History would please the Amnesty guys as this post is not meant to discuss Sri Lankan History. If you really want to thrash it out, I can start a blog elsewhere and let's support our claims with evidence – not from a statement made by some lunatic in the 1930's, but, with solid tangible evidence. Usually when ever I challenged you for anything, you pussies runaway – let me see the man in you at least this time around !!

  132. EDE – These Apes actually did waste my Saturday :( !

    I was about to start reading Dan Brown's Lost Symbol and I had to actually sit down and read a few books on Sri Lankan history to refresh my mind.

    I truly tried to find out whether there is any thing in relation to what the Apes say – but no luck – See, we have had a separate language from South India, separate set of rituals, and 2 main clans of Yaksha and Naga who's rituals were completely different from south indian rituals. Their worship patterns were more close to what we call Paganism with Brahma rituals creeping in towards the latter part and becoming a practice among aristocrats after Vijaya who was obviously from such background. This religious beliefs obviously changes with the revival in India after Asoka, where Buddhism became the main philosophy the land was built up on there after. Even the written scrips – crved on to stones around 200 B.C. carry Brahmian Scripts – close to that was in north india – but, we have had our own language, and it is said that Mihindu thero took some time and learned the language before coming down to preach. Apparently, what the Singhalees use now is a mix of this original language + Pali + Sanskrit and the rest follows. What has happened here is Quite fascinating compared to the size of the land and the population there ever was.

    Anyways, As I mentioned, this is not the place to talk of that and AI – Sorry, I got a bit carried away as the material was fresh in my head.

  133. MV Sun Sea
    After spending nearly three months in sea, MV Sun Sea, a 59-metre Thai cargo ship, docked near Victoria, Canada Friday with nearly 490 Tamil refugees who fled Sri Lanka seeking safety and security in a foreign land thousands of miles away from northern Sri Lanka, their place of birth.
    http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&art

    Don’t think that all the passengers in the ship are SL tamils. It is a well-known fact that tamils from tamil nadu (tamil country) also used bogus passports and pretended they are from Sri Lanka. This is another racket by tamils. World tamil syndicates issued many bogus SL passports to tamils of nadu tamil to claim refugee status. When they come to Europe or Canada authorities cannot identify them as either SL tamils or tamil nadu tamils as they are from one tribe, even Sri Lankans cannot identify the difference. It is a well-known fact that Velupillai’s terrorist organization earned several millions issuing forged passports to tamil nadu tamils.
    Best solution is send all of them to tamil country (tamil nadu) and it is a duty of Karunanidhi, Jayalalitha, Vaiko, Seeman and other Karupaiyas, Ponnaiyas and Suppaiyas to look after their tribal men and women and fulfill their aspirations or grievances.

  134. Repo Man Alias Rip V W !

    Nope i dont think so – I think you'll find that it has now been established that this particular deception, just like the hostage rescue misrepresentation, was perpetrated by your Sinhalese Racist friends.

  135. Gunalan

    To you and me the sentiment is obvious, but it is the absence of conscience that empowered these people to commit mass murder in the first place.

    Their selfishness and lack of shame is merely evidence that, in the final analysis, they have paid a greater price than the Tamils, for they have willingly surrendered their humanity.

    And this is the tainted legacy that they will pass from generation to generation, despite all their bravado.

  136. @ Gunalan and Arunthavarajah"

    I don't believe that you're genuine Eelam/Ezham supporters. You must be agents of the genocidal, racist Sinhala establishment. :)

    Why else would you deny the obvious reasons regarding the causes of deaths of Tamil civilians in the last month of combat in 2009? i.e. The Great Leader's refusal to let 'his' people escape the fighting.

  139. Canada: Boat Terrotists … so much hysterics !!!

    But in reality …. 6 months baby arrived !!

    So much hysteria and xenophobia !!

    The Hard Core Tamil Terrorists are coming to Canada !!

    Now we see ….that exhausted …and some close to death ….. one of them is 80 years grandfather !!

    Many of the Boat Refugees have relatives in Canada

    ————————————————————————–

    Children, women and elderly Tamil migrants were among those who disembarked from the ship near Victoria yesterday, and their Canadian relatives are “desperate” to make contact after months of worrying, according to the Canadian Tamil Congress.

    The congress said dozens of families have called saying they believe their relatives — including a toddler, a six-year-old and an 80-year-old — were among the 490 Tamil migrants captured in “heart-wrenching images” yesterday.

    A six-month-old baby and two pregnant women were believed to have been taken to a Victoria hospital, highlighting the concerns of callers who told the congress that they feared for the health of their loved ones.

  140. @ Siva,

    The only people having 'hysterics' are tax-paying, non-LTTE Canadians who most definitely don't want more LTTE supporters to land into Canada.

    Here's what a Canadian says:
    "Instead of coming all the way here, they could go to the Southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Gosh, it has the word Tamil in the name. I wonder why. Maybe the name means, "there are no Tamils here," but I doubt it. Or they could go to Bangladesh or Thailand or Malaysia or the Philippines or China or Taiwan or South Korea, if personal safety is what they are truly worried about, and assuming their boat can only travel east. Their chances of entering Japanese waters are a flat zero. Then again, the cash aint so sweet in any of those places. Their motives are obvious." http://tinyurl.com/287zosj

    I bet the Canadians can't wait for the 'cultural enrichment' that these Eelamists will bring to their new homes! :)

    e.g. Their unique displays of street theatre (e.g. traffic-blocking demonstrations to stop a non-existent 'genocide'),

    Brand-new retail magic tricks (watch in amazement as your credit card's cloned in LTTE scams) and,

    The emergence of exciting new brands of 'non-violent' youth gangs and 'Brappers'.

    If the Canadian govt want to absorb into their society, the slow-burning cancerous growth of Tamil Eelam, that's their business.

    Thank you Canada! :)

    You've never managed to answer the question of why these LTTE Angels from Sri Lanka are making a perilous journey on 'leaky boats'.

    Obvious question 1:
    If the boat's so leaky and journey so perilous, you'd think they'd reduce their time at sea and sail to India,which is only two hours from Sri Lanka. Why make a "perilous journey in the leaky boats" to Canada or Australia?

  141. Even in death, LTTE Child Soldiers used for propaganda advantage

    Hey Rohan, you might fool your White Masters & Madams with this nonsense, but let’s stick to some basic facts about the Chencholai ‘orphanage bombing, shall we? It was being used as a training camp and thus a legitimate target.

    It’s a terrible shame that there were kids in there, but the responsibility for their deaths lies in the hands of the LTTE.

    Instead of appalled and disgusted that the LTTE were forcing Tamil kids in the Vanni to fight, you overseas pro-LTTE groupies were quite happy to encourage the combat from the safety of the West.

    Who was responsible for deaths of Tamil civilians in 2009? The LTTE and people like you – their overseas supporters.

    Key extracts from the second part of DBS Jeyaraj’s interview with KP, currently a guest of the SL state.

    http://dbsjeyaraj.com/dbsj/archives/1631

    Q: “Did you not try to save the civilians by getting the LTTE to release them?”

    KP says: “I did try at the start.

    There was even an offer by the Americans to transport them by sea to Trincomalee. But the LTTE hierarchy was not agreeable.”

    You made the wrong choices for over 30 years and still continue to make them, now.

    I almost admire the Eelamists’ capacity for never learning from their mistakes.

    @ Repo Man: Nice work countering the Eelamists’ lies. Its a never-ending task!

  147. Remembring the children

    Aug 14, 2006, Chencholai children’s home Massacre

    The horror of death from the air pounding the hearts of the young came Monday August 14th, near Kilinochchi – again.

    When children are plucked away, violently, hearts bleeds in grief.

    These children and their parents faced decades of war, food embargos and then the tsunami.

    “Our deep sorrow is with their loved ones during this time of grief -for this senseless loss, and a promise to work for a better and more peaceful tomorrow for other children is the only glowing tribute to those young hearts that are not among us today”, said a caller on a Talk Radio on Monday.

    Many Tamils, particularly in the diaspora communities expressed their sadness but also anger on the airwaves and several online portals over the horrific incident.

    However the Sri Lankan authorities seem to be paying scant regard to loss human life, children.

    http://tamilweek.com/news-features/archives/520

  148. Tamils are economic migrants looking for a better quality of life (like all other migrants from third world countries). They need war and insatiability in Sri Lanka to gain access to and permanently reside in whichever Western country they have sought “refuge”. They willingly make Sri Lanka “unsafe” for them (least the appearance of that) with war and plenty of fantasy tales. The concept of a separate state and race pride derived from it are secondary to the basic desire to have a better quality of life.

    The simple reality is in a Western country you have a better quality of life, things are less stressful, all jobs pay you more (from a beggar to a doctor), you can get social benefits and being a lazy unemployed slob “earns” you more than working a life time would (in some menial employment) back in Sri Lanka.

    Tamils in the past who have claimed asylum citing reasons such as “persecution” and “genocide” do it from the capital of the very country that is supposedly carrying this out, others hop on a plane and fly out to a Western country to claim asylum proclaiming themselves a refugee on arrival.
    Who suffering from “persecution” and “genocide” hangs around the country that is carrying out such crimes against them (in the capital no less) then flies out of the nations international airport on a plane? This was before the boat trips started (which is a recent phenomenon) and is how Tamils ended up in such large numbers in the West.

    If you are facing persecution and genocide the first thing you do is go to the safest and closest country possible. In Sri Lanka’s case that would be India.

  149. Dear Arunthavarajah

    I only wish that the SL govt was paying me huge sums for countering AI’s and Eelamists’ lies. I’d be a very rich person. Even richer than one of your LTTE tax collectors who’s disappeared with your funds :) :)

    KP may or may not be telling the truth. But his account of your stupid, child-murdering ‘Leader’ deciding to sacrifice Tamil civilians to prolong his miserable life, matches the reality of what happened in 2009.

    Basic logic makes it clear that the SL authorities won’t ‘disappear’ KP, after announcing that he’s in their custody and now working with them to alleviate the problems the ex-LTTE people. The SL govt does stupid things, but even they know its to their advantage to have KP working with them, for the benefit of war-ravaged Tamils in the North & Eastern SL.

    Perhaps you attended just one too many Pongu Thamil rallies and lost of powers of reasoning? :)

    Look at the video here and decide if KP is being tortured or working to help the LTTE cadres, currently being rehabilitated.

    Here’s KP interacting with ex-LTTE cadres undergoing rehabilitation.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ta7EfFhze14

    And here, the ex-LTTE girls are being Dance Genocided. No doubt they’re being forced to dance for the pleasure of the Genocidal Sinhala Overlords :) :)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RmocO4pZLQA

    The SL govt already allows family visits et to ex-LTTE people.

    “KP defended his decision to work with the government following his capture in the first week of August last year. He said it was ludicrous if anyone though anything could be done without engaging the government of Sri Lanka. Depending on the circumstances, he said “we would have to work with the relevant ministries, including Defence, External Affairs and the Commissioner General of Rehabilitation”

    PRESS RELEASE

    UNICEF: Children are victims of the conflict in Sri Lanka

    Colombo, New York, Geneva, 15 August 2006 – The bombing on Monday of a Vallepuram compound in Mullaitivu district that reportedly killed dozens of girls and wounded many more is a shocking result of the rising violence in Sri Lanka, UNICEF said today.“These children are innocent victims of violence,” said Ann M. Veneman, UNICEF Executive Director. “We call on all parties to respect international humanitarian law and ensure children and the places where they live, study and play are protected from harm.”

    The compound in the northern part of the country was bombed, reportedly killing as many as 40 adolescent girls. Some 100 children were wounded, many critically. Girls from various schools in the nearby district of Mullaitivu and Kilinochchi were staying overnight at the compound, attending a two-day course in first-aid.

    UNICEF staff from a nearby office immediately visited the compound to assess the situation and to provide fuel and supplies for the hospital as well as counselling support for the injured students and the bereaved families.

    This latest incident comes amidst escalating hostilities in Sri Lanka in recent weeks, where tens of thousands of children were displaced from their homes. Hundreds of children have been injured, lost family members, and live in constant fear of the violence and continuous shelling of their communities.

  151. No worries…. out tax collectors are around !!

If you really want to thrash it out, I can start a blog elsewhere and let’s support our claims with evidence – not from a statement made by some lunatic in the 1930′s, but, with solid tangible evidence. Usually when ever I challenged you for anything, you pussies runaway – let me see the man in you at least this time around !!

  154. EDE – These Apes actually did waste my Saturday :( !

    I was about to start reading Dan Brown’s Lost Symbol and I had to actually sit down and read a few books on Sri Lankan history to refresh my mind.

    I truly tried to find out whether there is any thing in relation to what the Apes say – but no luck – See, we have had a separate language from South India, separate set of rituals, and 2 main clans of Yaksha and Naga who’s rituals were completely different from south indian rituals. Their worship patterns were more close to what we call Paganism with Brahma rituals creeping in towards the latter part and becoming a practice among aristocrats after Vijaya who was obviously from such background. This religious beliefs obviously changes with the revival in India after Asoka, where Buddhism became the main philosophy the land was built up on there after. Even the written scrips – crved on to stones around 200 B.C. carry Brahmian Scripts – close to that was in north india – but, we have had our own language, and it is said that Mihindu thero took some time and learned the language before coming down to preach. Apparently, what the Singhalees use now is a mix of this original language + Pali + Sanskrit and the rest follows. What has happened here is Quite fascinating compared to the size of the land and the population there ever was.

    Anyways, As I mentioned, this is not the place to talk of that and AI – Sorry, I got a bit carried away as the material was fresh in my head.

  155. Repo Man Alias Rip V W !

    Nope i dont think so – I think you’ll find that it has now been established that this particular deception, just like the hostage rescue misrepresentation, was perpetrated by your Sinhalese Racist friends.

  156. Gunalan

    To you and me the sentiment is obvious, but it is the absence of conscience that empowered these people to commit mass murder in the first place.

    Their selfishness and lack of shame is merely evidence that, in the final analysis, they have paid a greater price than the Tamils, for they have willingly surrendered their humanity.

    And this is the tainted legacy that they will pass from generation to generation, despite all their bravado.

  157. @ Gunalan and Arunthavarajah”

    I don’t believe that you’re genuine Eelam/Ezham supporters. You must be agents of the genocidal, racist Sinhala establishment. :)

    Why else would you deny the obvious reasons regarding the causes of deaths of Tamil civilians in the last month of combat in 2009? i.e. The Great Leader’s refusal to let ‘his’ people escape the fighting.

  158. MV Sun Sea
    After spending nearly three months in sea, MV Sun Sea, a 59-metre Thai cargo ship, docked near Victoria, Canada Friday with nearly 490 Tamil refugees who fled Sri Lanka seeking safety and security in a foreign land thousands of miles away from northern Sri Lanka, their place of birth.

    http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=32414

    Don’t think that all the passengers in the ship are SL tamils. It is a well-known fact that tamils from tamil nadu (tamil country) also used bogus passports and pretended they are from Sri Lanka. This is another racket by tamils. World tamil syndicates issued many bogus SL passports to tamils of nadu tamil to claim refugee status. When they come to Europe or Canada authorities cannot identify them as either SL tamils or tamil nadu tamils as they are from one tribe, even Sri Lankans cannot identify the difference. It is a well-known fact that Velupillai’s terrorist organization earned several millions issuing forged passports to tamil nadu tamils.
    Best solution is send all of them to tamil country (tamil nadu) and it is a duty of Karunanidhi, Jayalalitha, Vaiko, Seeman and other Karupaiyas, Ponnaiyas and Suppaiyas to look after their tribal men and women and fulfill their aspirations or grievances.

  159. Canada: Boat Terrotists … so much hysterics !!!

    But in reality …. 6 months baby arrived !!

    So much hysteria and xenophobia !!

    The Hard Core Tamil Terrorists are coming to Canada !!

    Now we see ….that exhausted …and some close to death ….. one of them is 80 years grandfather !!

    Many of the Boat Refugees have relatives in Canada

    ————————————————————————–

    Children, women and elderly Tamil migrants were among those who disembarked from the ship near Victoria yesterday, and their Canadian relatives are “desperate” to make contact after months of worrying, according to the Canadian Tamil Congress.

    The congress said dozens of families have called saying they believe their relatives — including a toddler, a six-year-old and an 80-year-old — were among the 490 Tamil migrants captured in “heart-wrenching images” yesterday.

    A six-month-old baby and two pregnant women were believed to have been taken to a Victoria hospital, highlighting the concerns of callers who told the congress that they feared for the health of their loved ones.

  162. @ Siva,

    The only people having ‘hysterics’ are tax-paying, non-LTTE Canadians who most definitely don’t want more LTTE supporters to land into Canada.

    Here’s what a Canadian says:
    “Instead of coming all the way here, they could go to the Southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Gosh, it has the word Tamil in the name. I wonder why. Maybe the name means, “there are no Tamils here,” but I doubt it. Or they could go to Bangladesh or Thailand or Malaysia or the Philippines or China or Taiwan or South Korea, if personal safety is what they are truly worried about, and assuming their boat can only travel east. Their chances of entering Japanese waters are a flat zero. Then again, the cash aint so sweet in any of those places. Their motives are obvious.” http://tinyurl.com/287zosj

    I bet the Canadians can’t wait for the ‘cultural enrichment’ that these Eelamists will bring to their new homes! :)

    e.g. Their unique displays of street theatre (e.g. traffic-blocking demonstrations to stop a non-existent ‘genocide’),

    Brand-new retail magic tricks (watch in amazement as your credit card’s cloned in LTTE scams) and,

    The emergence of exciting new brands of ‘non-violent’ youth gangs and ‘Brappers’.

    If the Canadian govt want to absorb into their society, the slow-burning cancerous growth of Tamil Eelam, that’s their business.

    Thank you Canada! :)

    You’ve never managed to answer the question of why these LTTE Angels from Sri Lanka are making a perilous journey on ‘leaky boats’.

    Obvious question 1:
    If the boat’s so leaky and journey so perilous, you’d think they’d reduce their time at sea and sail to India,which is only two hours from Sri Lanka. Why make a “perilous journey in the leaky boats” to Canada or Australia?

  163. A ten-year-old girl student of Changkaanai Hindu Primary School was reported missing since Tuesday after leaving to attend school in the morning, according to complaints registered with the Jaffna office of the Human Rights Commision (JHRC) by her family members Thursday.

    Meanwhile, three family men from different places in Jaffna peninsula sought protection with JHRC Thursday due to death threats from Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troops and SLA-backed paramilitary men.

    The girl reported missing is Packiarasa Partheepa, 10, a fourth grade student of Changkaanai Hindu Primary School, in Valikaamam.

  164. Sri Lanka-the Little Red Dot of Blood

    Sri Lanka is an “island of blood.” Srilanka or Ceylon as it formerly known, is located at the southern tip of India, some calls it a tear drop Island and rightly so. By contrast to Singapore, Srilanka had all greater natural resources and man power to be one of the success stories of small nations, but it turned out to be a most bloodthirsty place on the planet. Whereas Singapore is leading the economically powerful nations in the world even competing with countries like Canada.

    This thread is not to exhaust the participants with historicity of violence in Srilanka since the British left the Island in 1948. But to spur debate among those who are unaware of the fact that they too have contributed to the redness of this little dot on the world map.
    The wonderful thing about the internet is you could challenge people from all over the world for their contribution to shed innocent blood in this nation without getting killed for speaking the truth.

    I advise Tamils to take it further and make it more creative to inform the readers all over the world. What you could do is provide me with relevant links of respective countries involvement is contributing to the recent genocide of Tamils. Often people don’t like the fact that they are in anyway involved in the murder of the innocents but the truth must be told so others do not have to suffer like what we, the Tamils suffered and are suffering in this Little Red Dot.

  165. Come on EDE !!

    Ha Ha Ha Ha !!!!!!

    Captain Vinod. :) :) :)

    What another Tall Tales you will amuse me with ??

    All this hysteria is a clever Sri Lankan propaganda ploy to paint the genuine asylum seekers as terrorists.

    The sick Sri Lankan Government tries to shut the Sri Lankan War Crimes witnesses up …..

  166. Tamils are economic migrants looking for a better quality of life (like all other migrants from third world countries). They need war and insatiability in Sri Lanka to gain access to and permanently reside in whichever Western country they have sought “refuge”. They willingly make Sri Lanka “unsafe” for them (least the appearance of that) with war and plenty of fantasy tales. The concept of a separate state and race pride derived from it are secondary to the basic desire to have a better quality of life.

    The simple reality is in a Western country you have a better quality of life, things are less stressful, all jobs pay you more (from a beggar to a doctor), you can get social benefits and being a lazy unemployed slob “earns” you more than working a life time would (in some menial employment) back in Sri Lanka.

    Tamils in the past who have claimed asylum citing reasons such as “persecution” and “genocide” do it from the capital of the very country that is supposedly carrying this out, others hop on a plane and fly out to a Western country to claim asylum proclaiming themselves a refugee on arrival.
    Who suffering from “persecution” and “genocide” hangs around the country that is carrying out such crimes against them (in the capital no less) then flies out of the nations international airport on a plane? This was before the boat trips started (which is a recent phenomenon) and is how Tamils ended up in such large numbers in the West.

    If you are facing persecution and genocide the first thing you do is go to the safest and closest country possible. In Sri Lanka’s case that would be India.

  167. @Pillaiyar:

    Sri Lanka – Blood Sacrifice demanded by the LTTE

    This is an excellent, superb idea.

    How much did the pro-LTTE Tamil diaspora contribute to the deaths of Tamil civilians (and especially children), whilst they remained in the safety of the West?

    We know that on average, in Canada the the minimum Eelam tax was $30 per person or family per month while in Switzerland it ranged from $50 to $100 per month.

    That's a lot of guns and explosives for killings in Sri Lanka and elsewhere.

    In your own words, How much did the pro-LTTE diaspora "…contribute to the redness of this little dot on the world map."

    So, which was your favourite LTTE civilian killing, made possible with these contributions?

    Dr (Mrs) Rajini Thiranagama Lecturer in Anatomy at the Jaffna University and co-author of the "Broken Palmyrah" (Sept 1989)

    or

    Dr Neelan Thiruchelvam Leader of TULF (July 1999)

    or

    The Kebithigollewa massacre (carried out during the 'ceasefire' in 2006) when the LTTE attacked a bus killing over 60 men, women and infants.

    So many civilian massacres to choose from and such little time, no?

    A supplementary question, if you don't mind:
    when one becomes an Eelamist, does the right side of your brain, (the part controlling cognitive communication i.e. reasoning skills) cease to function?

    Our Nordic friends just loved the LTTE. They couldn't do enough for them. The Herring molesters were major league Fluffers for Eelam.

    Here's a wiretap wiretap of a ridiculous Norwegian General, Trond Furuhovde (leading the SL Monitoring mission) and LTTE political leader Puleedevan, currently enjoying Eeelam-in-the-Sky.

    General Furuhovde died of natural causes in 2006, so was unfortunately spared the ignominy of having to watch the crushing of the LTTE. Damn! :(
    http://web.archive.org/web/20070925164739/www.svi

    What 'knowledge' was gained by the LTTE on 'military matters' from the Norwegian Army? Snowball fights? Cross-country skiing? Constructing igloo bunkers?

    The LTTE leadership is indeed "establishing similar practices in a peaceful Sri Lanka" by being very dead.

    The Hard Core Tamil Terrorists are coming to Canada !!

    I would say Hard core Peelamists + Economic Asylum seekers are using Sri Lanka as a cover to migrate to many lands. This is the very reason they keeping creating lies over lies over and over again – to ensure that they keep this Asylum seeking going on until they get all their relatives in to Canada….

    Now we see ….that exhausted …and some close to death ….. one of them is 80 years grandfather !!

    Well, if he was seeking Asylum, he is an Idiot – he actually could have lived a super life over here – May be he wanted a sea journey before he hit the Bucket !!

    Many of the Boat Refugees have relatives in Canada

    This proves all what we say above ha ???? Not asylum seekers, but Economic prospect seekers !!!!!! One goes and get's all including family, relations, next door neighbour etc – where in return they do the same and All live in the same 50×50 apartment littering the surrounding area and making loud noises to chase away the peaceful people who are already there – Again a Bad Hollywood Movie – A Good Kollywood Movie !!

  179. Number of war crimes that had been committed by the Sri Lankan forces is more than what Saddam Hussein did to the Kurdish people.

    Surrendered rebels with white flags were executed and thousands of wounded civilians were killed without mercy. Serious war crimes have been committed and the culprits are not just Sri Lankan forces but some Indian security experts, Sri Lankan and Indian politicians and UN officers.

    Banned weapons (cluster and phosphorus bombs) were used against innocent men, women and children. Red Cross workers were killed. The same hospitals were repeatedly bombed. Buildings and properties were destroyed by very powerful bombs.

    Innocent civilians were forced to live inside the bunkers for months. Food and medicine were denied to them.

  180. I see the Shameless Sri Lankan Propaganda machine is working well in the Boat Refugees in Canada.

    They manage to convince the gullible Canadians that the 6 months old baby is a ruthless terrorist

    I think , most Canadians doesn’t know what is happening in Sri Lanka . Tamils should educate them

  181. Norway’s contribution to painting Sri Lanka, blood red

    Our Nordic friends just loved the LTTE. They couldn’t do enough for them. The Herring molesters were major league Fluffers for Eelam.

    Here’s a wiretap wiretap of a ridiculous Norwegian General, Trond Furuhovde (leading the SL Monitoring mission) and LTTE political leader Puleedevan, currently enjoying Eeelam-in-the-Sky.

    General Furuhovde died of natural causes in 2006, so was unfortunately spared the ignominy of having to watch the crushing of the LTTE. Damn! :(

    http://web.archive.org/web/20070925164739/www.svik.org/Videos/GENTAMIL.mp3

    My favourite example is from the Norwegian Army website, hailing LTTE visitors to their camp in 2003. http://tinyurl.com/ygcu5os

    “They [the LTTE] will retain the knowledge gained about military matters, as well as knowledge about the ways of a democratic government, as practised by the Nordic countries. Later they [the LTTE] will come up with their own ways of establishing similar practices in a peaceful Sri Lanka, alongside the Sinhalese.”

    What ‘knowledge’ was gained by the LTTE on ‘military matters’ from the Norwegian Army? Snowball fights? Cross-country skiing? Constructing igloo bunkers?

    The LTTE leadership is indeed “establishing similar practices in a peaceful Sri Lanka” by being very dead.

    How many Lankans met agonising and untimely deaths due to Norwegian assistance to the LTTE?

  182. Canada represents ‘ray of light’ to Tamil refugees
    http://www.ottawacitizen.com/news/Canada+represents+light+Tamil+refugees/3397303/story.html#ixzz0wduLvj6Q

    No one ready 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 40,000 Tamils were victim of war last year. Witnesses of these war crimes are mainly the people who came out of the war zone. They saw all that happened to them and to their loved ones. Now over 490 reach canada too. They are war crime witness.
    last year, Canadian embassy in colombo was attacked by sri lankan government, Member of parliment was deported from sri lanka.

  183. Its easy to wax eloquent from the sanctuary of our perceived western democratic porcelain pinnacles, after all especially in times of economic hardship the folks at Amnesty International I am sure work extra hard to justify their existence at this organisation.

    But what you bring up in this blog under the guise of human rights and international refugee welfare does create many unanswered questions.

    The former reality in Sri Lanka before May 2009 for 30 years was that a majority of the Tamil populace in the North and East of Sri Lanka were forced to take up arms under the dictatorship of an egomaniac. The rest of the Tamil populace from Colombo and its suburbs enjoyed the same rights as any Sri Lankan. They still go to the best schools, have the best jobs and enjoy the same freedom as any Sri Lankan.

    When the now defunct peace accord in 2001 took place, senior LTTE cadre’s finally got a chance to visit Colombo. What they found in Colombo stood against everything that was brainwashed to them in the North. They did not expect to see all Sri Lankan’s in Colombo living, working and collaborating together for the good of the country. Housed at the Hilton Residencies, meetings with successful Tamils who lived amongst all Sri Lankan’s in the city, short trips to Singapore opened the eyes of many senior cadres of the LTTE and finally the end of terrorism in Sri Lanka.

    Prabakaran started a war, fuelled and financed by a opportunistic Tamil Diaspora, but fought by a bunch of innocent civilians who had no understanding of what they were fighting for. Political manipulation and war ravaged the north and east of Sri Lanka and a new hatred was created. Including the LTTE suicide cadre. International Terrorism had a new weapon.

    Everyone questions equal rights, but no one questions the end to Jaffna through terrorism. Jaffna situated in the very north of Sri Lanka was second only to Sri Lanka’s commercial capital in terms of trade and wealth. The Tamil economy, both cultural and financial was destroyed by the LTTE. All of Jaffna business leaders fled to Colombo from the LTTE, not abroad.

    Black July in 1983 is Sri Lanka’s biggest shame, the pinnacle of LTTE popularity and the creation of the Tamil Diaspora. As someone who lives in London, England, spent six years in USA, and still visit the US, I ask, how many Tamil refugees and asylum seekers who flee to the west now are using this situation to dupe the west to care for them?

    The modern asylum seeker speaks of poverty and marginalisation, but closer scrutiny will reveal that they went to the best schools in Sri Lanka, did good jobs and lived comfortably. None of them are the real refugees who haven’t even seen an one hundred rupee currency (approx 50 pence for you and I) note? The north and east where these people live were flourishing agricultural micro economies in Sri Lanka. Just pawns of the Tamil warmongers in Colombo and the west.

    This war that the Diaspora used primarily to satisfy their conscience, and gain favour from genuinely kind and concerned people in the west is over. PLEASE STOP TEACHING OUR CHILREN HATE, WAR AND VIOLENCE.

    The Sri Lankan government may silence its citizens and adopt a dictator style government, but Amnesty International please wake up from your slumber. You are creating more ill will and hate amongst the children of Sri Lanka and the Diaspora all over the world. I am sure by standing up against crimes in Sri Lanka, you do not plan to create hatred and flourishing terrorist organisations in your own land. Lands of democracy and freedom. Where terrorism thrives?

    Lands where what Israel does in Palestine is OK, the use of drones to bomb families in Afghanistan is OK, what happens in Iraq and the unlawful subjugation of all of Iraq is OK, the list is endless.

    A young baby in London starved and tortured to death by his own mother is OK.

    Please present both sides to every story and do not support hate mongering. When you do what you do, like this blog, all you do is yourselves say TERRORISM IS OK. Under the guise of democracy.

    PHYSICIAN HEAL THYSELF. OR JUST PISS OFF FROM TRYING TO BULLY DEVELOPING COUNTRIES LIKE OUR OWN. THOSE DAYS ARE FINALLY OVER.

    The world today is quite simple really, if you sodomise me, I will find someone stronger than you to sodomise you back. The fabulous truth is that the people who work Amnesty International enjoy being sodomised by warmongers and terrorists.

    I though it was a ship that carried several hundreds than a boat, Anyways, Glad that it is working and the Canadian government has finally opened their eyes. They actually need to look in their own backyards to figure out the disruption that they have done to their own country by being blind to the real situation and let Terrorists in – Now it's their people's credit cards that are being cloned or stolen, Their children who are getting used to drugs sold by these Apes to raise funds to buy arms that kill innocent people and their own backyards that are being littered by these Apes who are not disciplined.

    They manage to convince the gullible Canadians that the 6 months old baby is a ruthless terrorist

    Or the people this innocent child came with ????? Anyways, i would not be surprised if this little infant already had a Cyanide Capsule around the neck and an AK 47 in his hands as the cradle snatching Apes were well known to do such justice to innocent children.

    I think , most Canadians doesn’t know what is happening in Sri Lanka . Tamils should educate them

    I think now they are getting to know and removing their blind folds. Ape show is over, let the Lion show Begin !!!!

  188. Tamil advocates say that they will offer the Tamil refugees all the support they need to start the next chapter of their lives.

    Sarjuan Kanapathipillai of the Canadian Tamil Congress said the past support that Canada has shown to its refugees has grown proud citizens who build new lives in their new surroundings.

    He expects that the Tamils who landed here at the start of the weekend will do the same.

    "We've always been giving to the refugees that come here and as a result, they grow towards this country and there is an affinity towards this country," Kanapathipillai told CTV News Channel on Saturday.

    "A lot of the refugees from the past are contributing members to the society and we see this as being no different."

    He said the Canadian Tamil community will work with the migrants "to help them through the system, let them see what the country has to offer and what has enabled us to be so successful."

    In a separate interview, Canadian Tamil Congress spokesperson Manjula Selvarajah said the incoming Tamil migrants will have to work their way through the same challenges that any other refugee group faces in Canada.

    "If you look at the numbers of asylum seekers that come to this country from a variety of countries, it's in the 20,000 to 30,000 range," Selvarajah told CTV News Channel by telephone from Toronto
    all the support they need to start the next chapter of their lives.

    Sarjuan Kanapathipillai of the Canadian Tamil Congress said the past generosity and support that Canada has shown to its refugees has grown proud citizens who build new lives in their new surroundings.

    He expects that the Tamils who landed here at the start of the weekend will do the same.

    Kanapathipillai said the people who made it to Canada are fleeing a situation that they will do anything to escape from.

    "To think that a mother or a father would have to put their child through this really speaks to the deplorable conditions in Sri Lanka," he said.

  189. Sri Lankan exporters brace for life without EU tax breaks

    Sri Lankan exporters braced for hard times as the EU's withdrawal of import concessions took effect Sunday after Colombo's refusal to allow scrutiny of its human rights record.

    Sri Lanka has long been a preferred source for top high streets brands and its garment, china and other exports enjoyed lower European Union tariffs under a concession known as the Generalised System of Preference Plus (GSP+).

    But when the concession came up for renewal last year, Sri Lanka's hawkish government refused EU demands for a probe into war crimes allegedly committed in 2009 during the last months of the country's ethnic civil war.

    The EU's objective is to improve human rights in Sri Lanka

  190. @Pillaiyar: Why so shy about continuing to list the people and countries that helped to turn SL into a blood red island? You're big enough to start the topic. Are you too afraid to continue it?

    Why are you're too scared to answer my straightforward question about the LTTE's culpability for crimes against the Tamil people – the very people they claimed to be fighting for!

    I guess you're the typical overseas LTTE supporter. Talk big, act big, but when it came to action… you were just too busy having a manicure! :)

    The Sri Lankan state doesn't need to 'fool' the Canadian people who are quite capable of seeing for themselves, fake refugees entering the country on leaky boats. I say again, Thank you Canada!

    Perhaps the SL govt should empty it's jails of Eelamists and other ordinary decent criminals and put them on boat for Canada. It would save the country much needed funding which could then be diverted for re-construction in the North.

    Canada was quite happy to let Eelamists operate, fundraise and plan their death-dealing campaigns for over 30 years. They can now live with the consequences.

  191. Eelam delenda est

    I’m shocked at your cruel posts or perhaps the laughing at the misery of others is normal Sinhalese behavior.

    First – you are laughing at desperate Tamils who are in the leaky boats on a dangerous journey to save their lives …

    Then – you seem to accuse all Tamil Asylum Seekers to be terrorists .

    What about a 6 months old baby ?

    The infant is a terrorist too?

  192. Repo man

    I hope, it’s a joke . Tasteless one :( :( :(

  193. @Pillaiyar & Siva:

    Of course I'm not laughing at them. Merely puzzled by your refusal (inability?) to answer two simple questions. Your attempt at linking a question to 'ethnicity' is typical of the myopic racism of Eelamists. Thanks for another demonstration.

    Easy question 1:
    If the boat's so leaky and journey so perilous, you'd think they'd reduce their time at sea and sail to India,which is only two hours from Sri Lanka. Why make a "perilous journey in the leaky boats" to Canada or Australia?

    Easy question 2:
    How many Eelam Angels returned from Canada to Sri Lanka (since the war ended) have come to harm, in Sri Lanka?

    Again my thanks to Canada and USA for absorbing an unknown number of battle-hardened ex-LTTE cadres. Good Luck with your new intake!

  197. Visit Jaffna

    A9 highway from Omanthai until Elephant Pass is dominated by predominantly Sinhalese soldiers, who even operate the small restaurants by the roadside.

    This military presence seems overwhelming and stifling.

    The Sinhalese soldiers guarding most junctions as creating a perception of an army of occupation.

    The predominantly Sinhalese force manning bunkers and standing at every street corner in Jaffna will be viewed with hostility by the Tamil population similar to how a Sinhalese population would perceive a Tamil army setting up bunkers and standing in every street corner in Hambanthota, Galle or Matara.

    The Sinhalese soldiers themselves told us on several occasions that some in the local population look at them with a “vapara” eye.

    Our visit to Jaffna exposed and confirmed that all the conditions and discontent that led to the Tamil rebellion are still present today.

    The only ingredient that is lacking is the combustion of anti-Tamil riots such as in 1956, 1958, 1977, 1981, and 1983.

    The Tamils object to the “Sinhalisation” of Tamil areas.

  198. The Sinhalese nationalist mind fails to comprehend the subtle difference between a Tamil deciding to live in Wellawatta and the state settling Sinhalese and building Buddhist temples in Tamil areas. One is a demonstration of citizen’s right to live anywhere in the republic and the other can be interpreted as the dominant tribe having seized control of the republic, abusing the republics resources for the benefit and perpetuation of the hegemony of the dominant tribe.

    For example, in order to quell the southern JVP rebellion of 1971 and 1989, would the state have settled Tamils and Muslims in Galle and Matara and help build mosques and Hindu kovils in Galle and Matara to subdue the rebellious Sinhalese, to the same extent that they are doing in the North and East?

    We visited Nagadipa in Nainathivu, Casuarina Beach in Karainagar (Karaithivu), Nalour Kovil, the Nilavarai deep black bottomless well in Nawathkiri, the ancient Buddhist ruins of Kantharodai, Point Pedro, KKS, Velvettithurai, Keerimalai beach and Kovil, Elephant Pass, Killinochchi, Mullaithivu, Iranamadu Tank, LTTE airfield, Kokillai, and Welioya.

    The Nalour Kandasamy Kovil, one of the largest and venerated Hindu Kovil’s in the North was constructed by Chempaha Perumal known to the Sinhalese as Sapumal Kumaraya. His name is repeated daily in the Kattiyam as “Sri Sangabo Buvanekabahu”. The artwork in this temple reflects southern influence.

    We visited the war memorials in Kilinochchi and Elephant Pass, and noticed the mention of Gothabaya Rajapakse and Mahinda Rajapakse in the memorial plaque. Soldiers were unhappy that there is no mention of General Sarath Fonseka on these two memorials. Some soldiers told us that Sinhalese visitors from the South had also commented on this point.

  200. Jaffna people have no freedom whatsoever.

    Do they deserve this?

    I don't think so.

Now You don't get Cyanide in Jaffna – Wonder whether the stocks have been taken to Canada and Australia !!!

Did they mistreat you because you did not know or speak their languages ??? Did they at least mistreat you when you littered their streets and backyards ??????

    That is the difference between civilized world and Ape world. Civilized humans know how to treat fellow humans immaterial of the skin colour, ethnicity, religious belief or the language spoken.

    Might be very very hard for you to understand how the SLA is treating the innocent people over there ! You never would know the beauty of this friendship as you never stayed back to experience it – Ideal situation would be for you to shut your mouth and wait without talking what you don't know of.

  204. Sri Lanka’s telling exodus http://www.thestar.com/opinion/editorials/article

    Canada doesn’t have a Tamil “problem,” whatever critics of our refugee system may say about the arrival here of the cargo freighter MV Sun Sea with some 500 asylum-seekers. We processed 34,000 refugee claims last year; these arrivals won’t overtax the system. It is Sri Lanka that has a problem. President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s triumphalist government has failed to make the country’s large Tamil minority feel secure after crushing the Tiger insurgency last year. Until he does, people will continue to flee.

    I see the Shameless Sri Lankan Propaganda machine is working well in the Boat Refugees in Canada.

    I though it was a ship that carried several hundreds than a boat, Anyways, Glad that it is working and the Canadian government has finally opened their eyes. They actually need to look in their own backyards to figure out the disruption that they have done to their own country by being blind to the real situation and let Terrorists in – Now it’s their people’s credit cards that are being cloned or stolen, Their children who are getting used to drugs sold by these Apes to raise funds to buy arms that kill innocent people and their own backyards that are being littered by these Apes who are not disciplined.

    They manage to convince the gullible Canadians that the 6 months old baby is a ruthless terrorist

    Or the people this innocent child came with ????? Anyways, i would not be surprised if this little infant already had a Cyanide Capsule around the neck and an AK 47 in his hands as the cradle snatching Apes were well known to do such justice to innocent children.

    I think , most Canadians doesn’t know what is happening in Sri Lanka . Tamils should educate them

    I think now they are getting to know and removing their blind folds. Ape show is over, let the Lion show Begin !!!!

  206. EU ends Sri Lanka trade benefits http://english.aljazeera.net/news/asia/2010/08/20

    The European Union has ended its special import concessions to Sri Lanka.
    The withdrawal took effect on Sunday after Sri Lanka refused to allow scrutiny of its human rights record during its civil war that ended last year.

    Only one way out of Sun Sea dilemma
    Sri Lanka's sorry history complicates what to do with Tamil refugees http://www.edmontonjournal.com/news/Only+dilemma/

    I have a great deal of sympathy for Sri Lanka's Tamil minority; not for the bloody Tamil Tigers terrorist group, but for ordinary Tamils and their mistreatment at the hands of the island's Sinhalese majority.

    During British rule, Tamils, who are largely Hindu, held most of the senior positions in commerce, the professions and the bureaucracy. They were more willing than their Sinhalese countrymen — mostly Buddhists — to accept missionary education and British institutions.

    After independence in 1948, Sinhalese majority governments implemented a form of reverse discrimination known as "the policy of standardization," which made Sinhala the sole official language and brought most businesses under state control.

    The policy also reserved most major government jobs and contracts for the Sinhalese, which had the effect of taking away tens of thousands of private properties held by Tamils and turning them over to Sinhalese control.

    The result was a marginalization of Sri Lanka's 3.2 million Tamils — who are outnumbered about six-to-one — and a rise in Tamil militancy, particularly after the bloody mayhem of July 1983.

    Twenty-seven years ago last month, as many as 1,000 Sri Lankan Tamils were killed in what came to be known as the "Black July" riots. After a band of Tamil Tigers ambushed and murdered 13 Sri Lankan government soldiers, majority Sinhalese nationalists, including Buddhist monks, went door-to-door in Sri Lankan cities looking for Tamils.

    Mobs dragged their victims into the street and either beat them to death with clubs and pipes or placed gasoline-soaked tires around their necks and set them alight, then stood back and watched as they burned alive.

    Almost all those killed were innocent Tamil civilians, including many women and children. Few, if any, were Tamil Tiger terrorists, whose ambush killing of 13 government soldiers set off the carnage.

    Tens of thousands of Tamil homes were also looted, then burned to the ground. Hundreds of thousands of Tamils were forced to flee from the prosperous southern two-thirds of Sri Lanka into the economically poorer northern third, the traditional home of the Tamils. More than half of the nearly 250,000 Tamils now in Canada — the largest expatriate Sri Lankan Tamil population in the world — came here as part of the exodus that followed this infamous pogrom.

    During the quarter-century civil war that followed, nearly 70,000 people died, many of them Tamils. Sri Lankan security agents allegedly routinely resorted to torture of Tamil prisoners and many suspected Tigers "disappeared" while awaiting trial.

    War's end didn't end torment

    Since the end of the civil war — which concluded last year with a victory by the Sri Lankan army — the Sri Lankan government has been accused of "ethnic cleansing" of Tamils, kidnapping, torturing and executing them despite pledges it would treat them civilly and right the historic discrimination against Tamils.

    Thousands remain in deplorable Sri Lankan detention camps, where torture and summary executions are thought to be common. And some Western human rights groups even assert that the Sri Lankan government has encouraged Sinhalese to move north and take over Tamil farms and businesses in the northern and eastern provinces once controlled by the Tigers.

  207. Tamil advocates say that they will offer the Tamil refugees all the support they need to start the next chapter of their lives.

    Sarjuan Kanapathipillai of the Canadian Tamil Congress said the past support that Canada has shown to its refugees has grown proud citizens who build new lives in their new surroundings.

    He expects that the Tamils who landed here at the start of the weekend will do the same.

    “We’ve always been giving to the refugees that come here and as a result, they grow towards this country and there is an affinity towards this country,” Kanapathipillai told CTV News Channel on Saturday.

    “A lot of the refugees from the past are contributing members to the society and we see this as being no different.”

    He said the Canadian Tamil community will work with the migrants “to help them through the system, let them see what the country has to offer and what has enabled us to be so successful.”

    In a separate interview, Canadian Tamil Congress spokesperson Manjula Selvarajah said the incoming Tamil migrants will have to work their way through the same challenges that any other refugee group faces in Canada.

    “If you look at the numbers of asylum seekers that come to this country from a variety of countries, it’s in the 20,000 to 30,000 range,” Selvarajah told CTV News Channel by telephone from Toronto
    all the support they need to start the next chapter of their lives.

    Sarjuan Kanapathipillai of the Canadian Tamil Congress said the past generosity and support that Canada has shown to its refugees has grown proud citizens who build new lives in their new surroundings.

    He expects that the Tamils who landed here at the start of the weekend will do the same.

    Kanapathipillai said the people who made it to Canada are fleeing a situation that they will do anything to escape from.

    “To think that a mother or a father would have to put their child through this really speaks to the deplorable conditions in Sri Lanka,” he said.

    If it is Shameful as you mention, why on earth did you not voice your opinion at the time when it was actually happening – Please do ask your Aunt Adela how she distributed the Cyanide capsules among young children who were deprived of their innocent childhood !!!

  210. Sri Lankan exporters brace for life without EU tax breaks

    Sri Lankan exporters braced for hard times as the EU’s withdrawal of import concessions took effect Sunday after Colombo’s refusal to allow scrutiny of its human rights record.

    Sri Lanka has long been a preferred source for top high streets brands and its garment, china and other exports enjoyed lower European Union tariffs under a concession known as the Generalised System of Preference Plus (GSP+).

    But when the concession came up for renewal last year, Sri Lanka’s hawkish government refused EU demands for a probe into war crimes allegedly committed in 2009 during the last months of the country’s ethnic civil war.

    The EU’s objective is to improve human rights in Sri Lanka

    Why are you’re too scared to answer my straightforward question about the LTTE’s culpability for crimes against the Tamil people – the very people they claimed to be fighting for!

    I guess you’re the typical overseas LTTE supporter. Talk big, act big, but when it came to action… you were just too busy having a manicure! :)

    The Sri Lankan state doesn’t need to ‘fool’ the Canadian people who are quite capable of seeing for themselves, fake refugees entering the country on leaky boats. I say again, Thank you Canada!

    Perhaps the SL govt should empty it’s jails of Eelamists and other ordinary decent criminals and put them on boat for Canada. It would save the country much needed funding which could then be diverted for re-construction in the North.

    Canada was quite happy to let Eelamists operate, fundraise and plan their death-dealing campaigns for over 30 years. They can now live with the consequences.

  215. The minority Tamils were persecuted since 1948. Tiny Tamil babies were burned alive in many pogroms against us… so we have to protect ourselves.

President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s triumphalist government has failed to make the country’s large Tamil minority feel secure after crushing the Tiger insurgency last year. Until he does, people will continue to flee.

  218. This past week has been no different with the arrival of the MV Sun Sea and approximately 500 Tamil migrants.

    With little substantiation, officials and media are regurgitating the refrain of "terrorists," "illegals"

    They are asylum seekers.

    Canadian and international refugee law recognizes that many asylum seekers will be forced to travel irregularly, including by boat, to seek safety.

    The Canadian government instead of relying on sensationalism, let us ask: On what basis are the Tamil migrants being declared terrorists?

    Who would suffer in a three-month long, arduous journey risking death?

    Why women and children from this boat are in jail ?

    How do we justify jailing them as a humane response?

    What we do know is that United Nations Secretary-General Ban Kimoon has appointed a panel to investigate war crimes committed by the Sri Lankan government against Tamils.

    Human rights organizations have documented government and military atrocities including indiscriminate killings, arbitrary detentions and imprisonment, and mass displacement of Tamils

  219. Last year we succumbed to unfounded panic when the Ocean Lady landed with 76 Tamils aboard.

    All the men were eventually released when the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) was forced to admit they had no evidence of terrorist connections

    Ottawa even tried to use Section 86 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, a draconian section that allows for secret evidence in closed hearings, to make their case.

    Still, based on a lack of evidence, in January the CBSA announced that it would not contest the release of the last group of detainees.

  220. Canadian officials are either continuing to make uninformed statements despite the lack of evidence, or they are deliberately relying on the racist stereotyping of all Tamils as likely being associated with terrorism in order to fuel public fears.

  228. @Pillaiyar & Siva:

    Of course I’m not laughing at them. Merely puzzled by your refusal (inability?) to answer two simple questions. Your attempt at linking a question to ‘ethnicity’ is typical of the myopic racism of Eelamists. Thanks for another demonstration.

    Easy question 1:
    If the boat’s so leaky and journey so perilous, you’d think they’d reduce their time at sea and sail to India,which is only two hours from Sri Lanka. Why make a “perilous journey in the leaky boats” to Canada or Australia?

    Easy question 2:
    How many Eelam Angels returned from Canada to Sri Lanka (since the war ended) have come to harm, in Sri Lanka?

    Again my thanks to Canada and USA for absorbing an unknown number of battle-hardened ex-LTTE cadres. Good Luck with your new intake!

  232. Visit Jaffna

    A9 highway from Omanthai until Elephant Pass is dominated by predominantly Sinhalese soldiers, who even operate the small restaurants by the roadside.

    This military presence seems overwhelming and stifling.

    The Sinhalese soldiers guarding most junctions as creating a perception of an army of occupation.

    The predominantly Sinhalese force manning bunkers and standing at every street corner in Jaffna will be viewed with hostility by the Tamil population similar to how a Sinhalese population would perceive a Tamil army setting up bunkers and standing in every street corner in Hambanthota, Galle or Matara.

    The Sinhalese soldiers themselves told us on several occasions that some in the local population look at them with a “vapara” eye.

    Our visit to Jaffna exposed and confirmed that all the conditions and discontent that led to the Tamil rebellion are still present today.

    The only ingredient that is lacking is the combustion of anti-Tamil riots such as in 1956, 1958, 1977, 1981, and 1983.

    The Tamils object to the “Sinhalisation” of Tamil areas.

  233. Sri Lankan government threatens to execute Sarath Fonseka

    The Sri Lankan government is threatening to execute Sarath Fonseka, if he continues to suggest top officials may have ordered war crimes during the final hours of the civil war.

    The threat, issued by Sri Lanka's defence secretary, Gotabaya Rajapaksa, is the latest sign of a bitter feud within the Sri Lankan political establishment, little more than a year after the end of the Tamil war.

    Rajapaksa, who worked closely with Fonseka on the aggressive military strategy that crushed the Tigers and who is the brother of the president, Mahinda Rajapaksa, told the BBC's Hardtalk programme that the general had proved himself to be a liar and a traitor.

  234. The Sinhalese nationalist mind fails to comprehend the subtle difference between a Tamil deciding to live in Wellawatta and the state settling Sinhalese and building Buddhist temples in Tamil areas. One is a demonstration of citizen’s right to live anywhere in the republic and the other can be interpreted as the dominant tribe having seized control of the republic, abusing the republics resources for the benefit and perpetuation of the hegemony of the dominant tribe.

    For example, in order to quell the southern JVP rebellion of 1971 and 1989, would the state have settled Tamils and Muslims in Galle and Matara and help build mosques and Hindu kovils in Galle and Matara to subdue the rebellious Sinhalese, to the same extent that they are doing in the North and East?

    We visited Nagadipa in Nainathivu, Casuarina Beach in Karainagar (Karaithivu), Nalour Kovil, the Nilavarai deep black bottomless well in Nawathkiri, the ancient Buddhist ruins of Kantharodai, Point Pedro, KKS, Velvettithurai, Keerimalai beach and Kovil, Elephant Pass, Killinochchi, Mullaithivu, Iranamadu Tank, LTTE airfield, Kokillai, and Welioya.

    The Nalour Kandasamy Kovil, one of the largest and venerated Hindu Kovil’s in the North was constructed by Chempaha Perumal known to the Sinhalese as Sapumal Kumaraya. His name is repeated daily in the Kattiyam as “Sri Sangabo Buvanekabahu”. The artwork in this temple reflects southern influence.

    We visited the war memorials in Kilinochchi and Elephant Pass, and noticed the mention of Gothabaya Rajapakse and Mahinda Rajapakse in the memorial plaque. Soldiers were unhappy that there is no mention of General Sarath Fonseka on these two memorials. Some soldiers told us that Sinhalese visitors from the South had also commented on this point.

    The recent horror the Tamil people of Sri Lanka experienced at the hands of the barely chastized Sinhalese supremacists still in power there.

    In May of 2009, the LTTE, or more familiarly called, Tamil Tigers surrendered to the their Sinhalese overlords after suffering three years of an intensified “surge.”

    Uncounted thousands were killed and brutalized, and an equally unknown number of innocents civilians, guilty of no more in the main than belonging to an ethnic minority, and living in homes turned battlefield by the government armies.

    Those armies were aided and abetted in the greatest blood-letting in modern times.

    The world was witnessing a brutal aerial and artillery attack against a trapped population.

  240. Canada's failure to properly condemn the Sri Lankan tyranny abroad and to denounce in the most strenuous fashion its excesses can expect to see the Tamil victims of ignored atrocities shoring up more often Canada

    Funny to know that is sounds shameful when we mention it, but not shameful when you Apes actually went on to do it.

    The nasty Sri Lankan regime don't need to do anything to promote the negative image enjoyed by Tamils in Canada. After 30 years of suicide bombings and murdering democratically elected politicians, the instant mental image that most White Master Canadians associate with the word 'Tamil' is 'terrorist'.

We processed 34,000 refugee claims last year; these arrivals won’t overtax the system. It is Sri Lanka that has a problem. President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s triumphalist government has failed to make the country’s large Tamil minority feel secure after crushing the Tiger insurgency last year. Until he does, people will continue to flee.

  250. This past week has been no different with the arrival of the MV Sun Sea and approximately 500 Tamil migrants.

    With little substantiation, officials and media are regurgitating the refrain of “terrorists,” “illegals”

    They are asylum seekers.

    Canadian and international refugee law recognizes that many asylum seekers will be forced to travel irregularly, including by boat, to seek safety.

    The Canadian government instead of relying on sensationalism, let us ask: On what basis are the Tamil migrants being declared terrorists?

    Who would suffer in a three-month long, arduous journey risking death?

    Why women and children from this boat are in jail ?

    How do we justify jailing them as a humane response?

    What we do know is that United Nations Secretary-General Ban Kimoon has appointed a panel to investigate war crimes committed by the Sri Lankan government against Tamils.

    Human rights organizations have documented government and military atrocities including indiscriminate killings, arbitrary detentions and imprisonment, and mass displacement of Tamils

  251. Last year we succumbed to unfounded panic when the Ocean Lady landed with 76 Tamils aboard.

    All the men were eventually released when the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) was forced to admit they had no evidence of terrorist connections

    Ottawa even tried to use Section 86 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, a draconian section that allows for secret evidence in closed hearings, to make their case.

    Still, based on a lack of evidence, in January the CBSA announced that it would not contest the release of the last group of detainees.

  252. Canadian officials are either continuing to make uninformed statements despite the lack of evidence, or they are deliberately relying on the racist stereotyping of all Tamils as likely being associated with terrorism in order to fuel public fears.

    Sri Lanka’s sorry history complicates what to do with Tamil refugees
    http://www.edmontonjournal.com/news/Only+dilemma/3401020/story.html#ixzz0whR1siUO

    I have a great deal of sympathy for Sri Lanka’s Tamil minority; not for the bloody Tamil Tigers terrorist group, but for ordinary Tamils and their mistreatment at the hands of the island’s Sinhalese majority.

    During British rule, Tamils, who are largely Hindu, held most of the senior positions in commerce, the professions and the bureaucracy. They were more willing than their Sinhalese countrymen — mostly Buddhists — to accept missionary education and British institutions.

    After independence in 1948, Sinhalese majority governments implemented a form of reverse discrimination known as “the policy of standardization,” which made Sinhala the sole official language and brought most businesses under state control.

    The policy also reserved most major government jobs and contracts for the Sinhalese, which had the effect of taking away tens of thousands of private properties held by Tamils and turning them over to Sinhalese control.

    The result was a marginalization of Sri Lanka’s 3.2 million Tamils — who are outnumbered about six-to-one — and a rise in Tamil militancy, particularly after the bloody mayhem of July 1983.

    Twenty-seven years ago last month, as many as 1,000 Sri Lankan Tamils were killed in what came to be known as the “Black July” riots. After a band of Tamil Tigers ambushed and murdered 13 Sri Lankan government soldiers, majority Sinhalese nationalists, including Buddhist monks, went door-to-door in Sri Lankan cities looking for Tamils.

    Mobs dragged their victims into the street and either beat them to death with clubs and pipes or placed gasoline-soaked tires around their necks and set them alight, then stood back and watched as they burned alive.

    Almost all those killed were innocent Tamil civilians, including many women and children. Few, if any, were Tamil Tiger terrorists, whose ambush killing of 13 government soldiers set off the carnage.

    Tens of thousands of Tamil homes were also looted, then burned to the ground. Hundreds of thousands of Tamils were forced to flee from the prosperous southern two-thirds of Sri Lanka into the economically poorer northern third, the traditional home of the Tamils. More than half of the nearly 250,000 Tamils now in Canada — the largest expatriate Sri Lankan Tamil population in the world — came here as part of the exodus that followed this infamous pogrom.

    During the quarter-century civil war that followed, nearly 70,000 people died, many of them Tamils. Sri Lankan security agents allegedly routinely resorted to torture of Tamil prisoners and many suspected Tigers “disappeared” while awaiting trial.

    War’s end didn’t end torment

    Since the end of the civil war — which concluded last year with a victory by the Sri Lankan army — the Sri Lankan government has been accused of “ethnic cleansing” of Tamils, kidnapping, torturing and executing them despite pledges it would treat them civilly and right the historic discrimination against Tamils.

    Thousands remain in deplorable Sri Lankan detention camps, where torture and summary executions are thought to be common. And some Western human rights groups even assert that the Sri Lankan government has encouraged Sinhalese to move north and take over Tamil farms and businesses in the northern and eastern provinces once controlled by the Tigers.

  254. A Tamil from the migrant ship that reached British Columbia is in critical condition in hospital.

    The would-be refugees in hospital include two pregnant women and a child younger than one, said David Poopalapillai, a spokesman for the Canadian Tamil Congress.

    “Our main concern right now is the health of the migrants,” he said. “And the government has the same concern.”

    "That's only about two weeks ago, so they made it for most of the journey," said Kanapathipillai.

    "This person was a father of one, and his child and wife are in Sri Lanka. It shows how desperate these people were to try and get out of Sri Lanka, the conditions they must have been in."

    The 25-year-long civil war between the government and the rebel Tamil Tigers may be over, but Sri Lanka is still in turmoil as lingering hostilities and ethnic distrust permeate the country.

    A brutal end to a bloody war

    Since the war ended in May of last year, the government has been haunted by allegations of massive human rights violations and war crimes committed by both sides during the final months of battle.

    The United Nations estimates that at least 7,000 civilians were killed in the last five months of the war.

    In October, the U.S. State Department produced a report detailing allegations of human rights abuses and possible war crimes committed by both the Tamil Tigers and the Sri Lankan government in the war's final months.

    Some of the approximately 300 reports compiled by the State Department include allegations that government forces:

    •Attacked hospitals and other civilian institutions
    •Executed prisoners of war
    •Killed rebel soldiers who were trying to surrender
    •Secretly abducted and killed Tamil civilians, particularly children and young men
    •Failed to provide adequate food, water and medical supplies to people displaced by fighting

  263. After Pirapakaran: deepening internal colonialism http://www.tamilcanadian.com/page.php?cat=120&amp
    The war is not over. The contrived ‘post-war’ is a political illusion pedalled by Sinhalese hegemonism, foolishly parroted by some gullible Sinhalese and a few naive Tamils. War is not merely the clash of arms; there are other economic, cultural and ideological wars too – the Cold Wars. The armed phase, not the war, ended in May 2009; the Sinhalese regime is pursuing war in different modes.

    Isolating Tamils in prison camps of the open air variety (Jaffna peninsula) and herding them into concentration camps girded by razor wire in the Vanni are acts of war; they are grotesque throwbacks to the colonial tools of Strategic Hamlets (US in Vietnam) and Security Villages (British in Kenya). But a Sinhalese ideologue (former Head of the now mercifully defunct Government’s Peace Secretariat) accused a foreign journalist, who revealed in advance the regime’s incarceration plans, of sensationalising the use of razor wire and ignoring their ecological function. ‘Unfortunately’, babbled the ideologue, ‘a man from a cold climate does not realise that, in the sub-continent, barbed wire is the most common material to establish secure boundaries, to permit ventilation as well as views’. Perhaps he is miffed by the ingratitude of Tamil inmates who, rather than appreciate the scenery and fresh air, are instead selfishly griping about torture, rape and disappearances!

    Refusing prisoner of war status to, and holding incommunicado, Tamil combatants – male and female – in undisclosed locations are acts of war. Denying Tamil people under almost any pretext access to lands lived on and cultivated by their ancestors and destroying their livelihoods are acts of war. The Sinhalese State’s ethnic flooding – the continuing and deliberate settling of Sinhalese populations on land in the Tamil homeland – to alter the demographic balance and thereby systemically erase the Tamil nation’s territorial identity is an act of war. Imposing the alien Sinhalese language – cultural marker of the dominant Sinhalese nation – upon the Tamil nation is again an act of war. Some Sinhalese observers, taken in by the disinformation about war’s end, are puzzled why all this is taking place ‘post war’. The answer is simple. Post-war is a myth. The war continues against the Tamil people.

    The victory in the armed phase is not the ‘achievement’ sycophants lavish upon the moribund semi-feudal Sri Lankan regime. On the contrary, the credit belongs to a coalition of approximately 30 countries ranged against the Tamil people; they include the Great Powers – US, EU (led by Britain, France, Germany), Russia, India, China and Japan – many of them nuclear powers and their cat’s paws in Scandinavia, notably Norway. Together they set the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) up for the kill; virtually all that the Sinhalese army had to do was pull the trigger, in a manner of speaking.

    To give the Sri Lankan regime a free hand, the international coalition effectively endorsed genocide to assist the Sinhalese army to scorch its way through the supportive Tamil population and slaughter the LTTE-led popular revolutionary movement. That, we admit, is the ‘achievement’

    In Sri Lanka, internal colonialism by the Sinhalese oligarchy has many characteristic facets. It imposes Sinhalese culture; it economically marginalises the Tamil nation and, in addition, in the east and north increasingly denies access to land. Tamils degraded into the social and economic underclass inevitably resist; to put down the challenge the oligarchy ensured Sinhalese monopoly of employment in, and control over, the armed forces.

  264. this thread is another good indicator of this blogs racist bias against sri lankans.

    while,
    racists who support murderous tamil tiger terrorists (and equate tamils with tigers) who slander sri lanka and sri lankans without any evidence whatsoever are allowed freedom to post comments ,
    anyone pointing out absurdity of mentioning u.s. with human rights are censored . anyone who rationally counter the racists above are censored, anyone who even tries defend sri lanka using available facts are censored etc etc .
    i know this from my own comments that got censored. but read and you will see only one side .

    one gets the feeling that any independent commission that satisfy these racist censors in amnesty international and others of same ilk, will have to treat sri lanka with same respect as it is treating anyone who tries to defend sri lanka here.
    -

    a commission that find approval of and are appointed by ppl who wanted tamil tiger murderers of our children to survive by preventing their defeat through a ceasefire ( these include most western govs and their tools like , amnesty, hrw , un etc .) is not independent . only racist slaves of west think otherwise .

    btw telling that amnesty is now criticizing wikileaks lol typical slavishness covering up u.s war crimes huh ?

  265. @Pillayar machan:

    You’re definitely a Sinhala supremacist agent provocateur against Eelam/Eezham Tamils.

    For instance, you forgot to mention ‘racist’ in that weak attack against Repo Man and myself.

    The correct word is bloviate and not blogviate.

    Youra poor grasp of English is also typical of someone from the Sinhala-only education system :)

    @ Krishna:

    The nasty Sri Lankan regime don’t need to do anything to promote the negative image enjoyed by Tamils in Canada. After 30 years of suicide bombings and murdering democratically elected politicians, the instant mental image that most White Master Canadians associate with the word ‘Tamil’ is ‘terrorist’.

    I deplore this as the vast majority of Tamils (whether in Canada or Cameroon) are not terrorists, but who ever said life was fair, no?

  266. Tamil died during voyage from Sri Lanka http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2010/08/15/tamil-h

    Sarujan Kanapathipillai of the Canadian Tamil Congress said members of his organization have been in touch with some of the migrants, who told them the man left behind a family in Sri Lanka.

    "That's only about two weeks ago, so they made it for most of the journey," said Kanapathipillai.

    "This person was a father of one, and his child and wife are in Sri Lanka. It shows how desperate these people were to try and get out of Sri Lanka, the conditions they must have been in."

    The 25-year-long civil war between the government and the rebel Tamil Tigers may be over, but Sri Lanka is still in turmoil as lingering hostilities and ethnic distrust permeate the country.

    A brutal end to a bloody war

    Since the war ended in May of last year, the government has been haunted by allegations of massive human rights violations and war crimes committed by both sides during the final months of battle.

    The United Nations estimates that at least 7,000 civilians were killed in the last five months of the war.

    In October, the U.S. State Department produced a report detailing allegations of human rights abuses and possible war crimes committed by both the Tamil Tigers and the Sri Lankan government in the war's final months.

    Some of the approximately 300 reports compiled by the State Department include allegations that government forces:

    •Attacked hospitals and other civilian institutions
    •Executed prisoners of war
    •Killed rebel soldiers who were trying to surrender
    •Secretly abducted and killed Tamil civilians, particularly children and young men
    •Failed to provide adequate food, water and medical supplies to people displaced by fighting

    http://www.hrw.org/en/news/2010/05/07/sri-lanka-government-proposal-won-t-address-war-crimes
    Every time the international community raises the issue of accountability, Sri Lanka establishes a commission that takes a long time to achieve nothing. Ban should put an end to this game of smoke and mirrors and begin a process that would ensure justice for all the victims of Sri Lanka’s war.

    The war is not over. The contrived ‘post-war’ is a political illusion pedalled by Sinhalese hegemonism, foolishly parroted by some gullible Sinhalese and a few naive Tamils. War is not merely the clash of arms; there are other economic, cultural and ideological wars too – the Cold Wars.

  271. was quite taken by how small the boat is. Hard to imagine that many people travelling that far on something so small, and across an entire ocean. Who knows how many days they didn't see land?

    There was not a sound and the water was like glass reflecting the ship's lights and that of its escorts. From their vantage point, it would have been our lights reflecting across the water toward them when, with the sun starting to rise, the sky was trying to decide what colour to be.

    Many on board would have no appreciation of the politics of this whole thing. They'd just be cold, hungry, scared and after a perilous journey, this would be their first glimpse of what they hope to be their new home.

    I was quite moved. And very proud to be a Canadian — something I think we'd all like to feel more often. These people chose us.

    Their arrival has prompted yet another debate about our refugee policy and certainly I'm not so naïve as to think that possible Tamil Tiger involvement isn't problematic. But I trust our security forces to do their job.

    There have also been reports about how much it will cost us to house these people until their status is settled. But you can't quantify the price these people paid to get here.

    Their arrival prompted me to want to go down to the shore and say, "Welcome."

  272. I also want to be a people smuggler and earn $20 million in one smuggling voyage!
    http://tinyurl.com/32mw7l3

    So, what have we learnt about these 'persecuted' SL Tamils sneaking into Canada?

    1. Each 'persecuted person', 'refugee/economic migrant' paid $30-45,000 for the trip.

    [we were told that these were poor people with only the clothes on their back as their only possessions.]

    2. The entire trip was arranged by the LTTE's 'Eelam Cruises' division.

    3. The ship was re-fitted to take the maximum number of fake refugees.

    4. The ship sailed from Thailand and not from India or Sri Lanka.
    [I didn't realise that the LTTE were trying to carve out a separate state in Thailand! :) ]

    5. Amnesty International & Jim McD fully supported this 'Eelam Cruise'. i.e. the right of criminals to engage in human smuggling.

    [This must mean that AI now support international human smuggling and illegal immigration. Another addition to AI's already long list of accomplishments. :)]

    Conclusion: 400+ lucky SL Tamils (including a number of LTTE cadres), falsely claiming 'persecution & genocide' jumped the queue in front of more legitimate migrants to bring their distinctive cultural advantages to Canada's thriving multi-cultural society.

    Canada can now expect many more 'Eelam Cruises' to arrive containing distraught Eelamists with their standard litany of escaping from Genocidal Thailand.. proving that old saying, 'No good deed goes unpunished'.

    Lucky Canada!

  273. WOW !!!

    EXCUSE ME !!!

    WHO ARE THE REAL TERRORISTS???

    The state terrorism that's what's happening in Sri Lanka right now !!

    Why are we letting the history to repeat itself, first Hitler killing the Jews, now it's Mahinda Rajapaksa (president of Sri Lanka) killing the innocent Tamils ?

    And the LTTE gets the terrorist name just for trying to save their own people?

    There are tones of evidence showing the Sri Lankan forces committing war crimes….and killing innocent Tamil civilians, and this is even after defeating the LTTE!!!

    So now that the LTTE is gone why colonizing and enslaving of the Tamils increase?

    We know who are the real terrorists and it’s the Sri Lankan government..

    WHERE IS JUSTICE IN THIS WORLD??????

  274. Sri Lanka is a country fo a genocidal and tribal madness of backwards and violent culture . :(

  275. Everyone has the right to protest in Canada !!

    Tamils have the right to BLOCK the GARDINER EXPRESSWAY in Toronto once in many months of protesting the mass murder of the 40 000 women and children !!

    Yes they did this to expose Sri Lanka most heinous criminal acts and genocide carried out on innocent Tamils in Sri Lanka and we protest here , in Canada in a peaceful manner.

    The Sinhalese Mass Murderers, on the other hand, use unlimited bombs, multi-barrel guns and aircrafts to butcher thousands of the innocent women and children .

    Sri Lanka defense minister openly said they used almost equal quantity of bombs that were used in the Second World War over Japan.

    If Sri Lanka had treated the Tamils as equals without any discrimination, there need not have been any blockage or demonstration held here or anywhere.

    Canada is a truly a free and democratic county not like in Sri Lanka.

    There is no white van abduction and killing here unlike in your country keeps that it mind.

    The war is not over. The contrived ‘post-war’ is a political illusion pedalled by Sinhalese hegemonism, foolishly parroted by some gullible Sinhalese and a few naive Tamils. War is not merely the clash of arms; there are other economic, cultural and ideological wars too – the Cold Wars. The armed phase, not the war, ended in May 2009; the Sinhalese regime is pursuing war in different modes.

    Isolating Tamils in prison camps of the open air variety (Jaffna peninsula) and herding them into concentration camps girded by razor wire in the Vanni are acts of war; they are grotesque throwbacks to the colonial tools of Strategic Hamlets (US in Vietnam) and Security Villages (British in Kenya). But a Sinhalese ideologue (former Head of the now mercifully defunct Government’s Peace Secretariat) accused a foreign journalist, who revealed in advance the regime’s incarceration plans, of sensationalising the use of razor wire and ignoring their ecological function. ‘Unfortunately’, babbled the ideologue, ‘a man from a cold climate does not realise that, in the sub-continent, barbed wire is the most common material to establish secure boundaries, to permit ventilation as well as views’. Perhaps he is miffed by the ingratitude of Tamil inmates who, rather than appreciate the scenery and fresh air, are instead selfishly griping about torture, rape and disappearances!

    Refusing prisoner of war status to, and holding incommunicado, Tamil combatants – male and female – in undisclosed locations are acts of war. Denying Tamil people under almost any pretext access to lands lived on and cultivated by their ancestors and destroying their livelihoods are acts of war. The Sinhalese State’s ethnic flooding – the continuing and deliberate settling of Sinhalese populations on land in the Tamil homeland – to alter the demographic balance and thereby systemically erase the Tamil nation’s territorial identity is an act of war. Imposing the alien Sinhalese language – cultural marker of the dominant Sinhalese nation – upon the Tamil nation is again an act of war. Some Sinhalese observers, taken in by the disinformation about war’s end, are puzzled why all this is taking place ‘post war’. The answer is simple. Post-war is a myth. The war continues against the Tamil people.

    The victory in the armed phase is not the ‘achievement’ sycophants lavish upon the moribund semi-feudal Sri Lankan regime. On the contrary, the credit belongs to a coalition of approximately 30 countries ranged against the Tamil people; they include the Great Powers – US, EU (led by Britain, France, Germany), Russia, India, China and Japan – many of them nuclear powers and their cat’s paws in Scandinavia, notably Norway. Together they set the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) up for the kill; virtually all that the Sinhalese army had to do was pull the trigger, in a manner of speaking.

    To give the Sri Lankan regime a free hand, the international coalition effectively endorsed genocide to assist the Sinhalese army to scorch its way through the supportive Tamil population and slaughter the LTTE-led popular revolutionary movement. That, we admit, is the ‘achievement’

    In Sri Lanka, internal colonialism by the Sinhalese oligarchy has many characteristic facets. It imposes Sinhalese culture; it economically marginalises the Tamil nation and, in addition, in the east and north increasingly denies access to land. Tamils degraded into the social and economic underclass inevitably resist; to put down the challenge the oligarchy ensured Sinhalese monopoly of employment in, and control over, the armed forces.

  281. Rajapaksa onslaught on basic rights is a common threat to all our citizens

    The tyrant desires that his subject shall be incapable of action, for no one attempts what is impossible, and they will not attempt to overthrow a tyranny, if they are powerless.”– Aristotle (Politics)

    The Samurdhi officials have shown that there is still a way. By refusing to tolerate the barbaric injustice done to a colleague and by using their collective strength to resist the über-power of the power-wielders, they compelled the Rajapaksa regime to digress, however temporarily, from its habit of impunity.

  282. Canada doesn’t have a Tamil “problem,” whatever critics of our refugee system may say about the arrival here of the cargo freighter MV Sun Sea with some 500 asylum-seekers.

    We processed 34,000 refugee claims last year; these arrivals won’t overtax the system.

    It is Sri Lanka that has a problem.

    President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s triumphalist government has failed to make the country’s large Tamil minority feel secure after the Tamil War last year.

    Until he does, people will continue to flee.

  283. 490 Tamil refugees shared a single toilet on board a cargo ship during a three-month voyage across the Pacific.

    A Tamil lawyer painted a grim picture of conditions on board the MV Sun Sea.

    The 490 refugees on board collected rainwater for their tea because water was in short supply. They sometimes made do with one meal a day.

    "They did not seem well fed," said Tamil lawyer "I saw a lot of people limping with swollen feet. The journey was treacherous."

    The RCMP said one 37-year-old man from Sri Lanka died during the crossing and Tamils said he was buried at sea.

    The Tamils, who say they were mistreated by authorities in Sri Lanka, are expected to apply for refugee status.

    A Tamil Lawyer said one Tamil told him he "didn't mind sinking in the sea rather than being killed by Sri Lankan soldiers."

    "He said he had a safe place to sleep in Canada," a Tamil lawyer quoted the man as saying.

    NDP opposition politicians called on the Canadian government to uphold refugees' rights, which are guaranteed under a United Nations convention.

    "This was a rough passage. This was not a pleasure cruise," NDP MP Peter Julian (Burnaby-New Westminster) told a meeting of about 50 Tamil supporters at a Hindu temple in Burnaby. "They got on a ship because there is a measure of safety in Canada not present in Sri Lanka."

    Burnaby resident Jay Selva, a one-time Tamil who runs a limousine service, said he takes exception to protesters in Victoria.

    "It's not nice," said Selva. "This is a multicultural country. Tamils who have come here work hard. We don't hide. We follow the rules. The protesters forget that Canada is a land of immigrants. The Tamil community here is ready to do whatever it can to help them."

    The UN says thousands of Tamils, including members of the Tamil Tigers , are being held in primitive conditions in camps in Sri Lanka.

  284. Time for Amnesty & the US State Department to call for a ceasefire….. in Afghanistan!

    The Taliban deliberately murdered over 3,000 Afghan civilians in 2010. http://blog.amnestyusa.org/middle-east/taliban-le

    So by the end of 2010, there will probably be 6,000 dead Afghan civilians. Tragic.

    The West intends to stay in Afghanistan for at least another 10 years to stabilise the country. (Ha ha ha ha!)

    Probable civilian casualties expected by 2020, (est average of 2,000 per year) = 20,000.

    AI never shied away from calling for ceasefires between SL and LTTE during the conflict.

    Where' the accountability for these preventable civilian deaths?

    Where's the campaigning by ICG, HRW, AI and the usual cabal of HR groups demanding an immediate cessation of ISAF military activities and ceasefire with the Talibs?

    Oh… civilian casualties in Sri Lanka in 2010? Zero. Nothing. Nada. Nichts. Rien..

    I really must congratulate the West on racking up an impressive civilian death toll in the Mid-East and yet with a straight face attacks Sri Lanka for its own civilian death. Are there performance bonuses for those involved?

    It's strange how 'human rights' work, no?

  290. was quite taken by how small the boat is. Hard to imagine that many people travelling that far on something so small, and across an entire ocean. Who knows how many days they didn’t see land?

    There was not a sound and the water was like glass reflecting the ship’s lights and that of its escorts. From their vantage point, it would have been our lights reflecting across the water toward them when, with the sun starting to rise, the sky was trying to decide what colour to be.

    Many on board would have no appreciation of the politics of this whole thing. They’d just be cold, hungry, scared and after a perilous journey, this would be their first glimpse of what they hope to be their new home.

    I was quite moved. And very proud to be a Canadian — something I think we’d all like to feel more often. These people chose us.

    Their arrival has prompted yet another debate about our refugee policy and certainly I’m not so naïve as to think that possible Tamil Tiger involvement isn’t problematic. But I trust our security forces to do their job.

    There have also been reports about how much it will cost us to house these people until their status is settled. But you can’t quantify the price these people paid to get here.

    Their arrival prompted me to want to go down to the shore and say, “Welcome.”

  291. I wanted to Single out this post as this was hilarious of them all !! These are the people whom we say are thinking from their Rectums instead of Head – Even primates think from the little bit of brains they have !!

    Let me take the extracts first !!!

    490 Tamil refugees shared a single toilet on board a cargo ship during a three-month voyage across the Pacific.

    No Pain – No Gain – Also, that is not quite worth it after paying USD 20,000 + to get on board the Economic Asylum Mission Boat ha ?? Could have taken an Air Plane for much less – could have chartered a plane !!

    The RCMP said one 37-year-old man from Sri Lanka died during the crossing and Tamils said he was buried at sea.

    Wonder how an 80 year old man and a 6 month old baby survived when this 37 year old young one died :? :( ??

    And would like to know where about in the sea this person was Buried ? I mean, if it was closer to the shores, I can understand one somehow or other digging a hole in the seabed and "Burying" the dead. But, imagine if it was in the middle of say the Pacific ?? Who would dive thousands of meters to dig a grave to "Bury" a dead ???

    Good joke noh ?? LOL !!!!!!

    The Tamils, who say they were mistreated by authorities in Sri Lanka, are expected to apply for refugee status.

    Wish to know whether I could get refugee status too – I mean, I am mistreated big time by the GOSL – I am wasting a load of time here and not a single – Thank you note – So Angry with them – Please tell me how to get my Refugee Status to Canada!!!!

    A Tamil Lawyer said one Tamil told him he “didn’t mind sinking in the sea rather than being killed by Sri Lankan soldiers.”

    Wonder what Lakshman Kadiragamar, Neelan Thiruchelvan and many other Tamils who were killed by the LTTE felt ??? Wonder where they would have gone to seek asylum ????? May be they would have thought better to get killed by LTTE than Join them ????????? (Just a thought – do you agree?)

    “He said he had a safe place to sleep in Canada,” a Tamil lawyer quoted the man as saying.

    Ayyo – I would have given a bed in my house if he really wanted a place to sleep !!! Why go all the way to Canada – Actually with the USD 20k spent, I could have got him the best room at Cinnamon Grand !

    “It’s not nice,” said Selva. “This is a multicultural country (Canada).

    Hmmm.. Yes – Initially there were the red Indians and the Westerners terrorized them and forcefully took over the land, Now Terrorists, under the disguise of Asylum seekers, spend thousands of Dollars and are slowly taking over the land – I am of course happy to send the terrorists to the otherside of the world from this blessed land, but, then again I feel sorry for the remaining Red Indians (not the White masters)- Now, in a few more years time, they will find the Peelamist building some false link between these Red Indians and them and calling it "Homeland" of Peelam !!!

    The UN says thousands of Tamils, including members of the Tamil Tigers , are being held in primitive conditions in camps in Sri Lanka.

    Now this sentence I took on a more serious note – Just met my friend who is a doctor who returned from the IDP camps where he worked for the past 3 months and told me, the remaining bunch are those who do not wish to go to their houses due to various reasons.

    for one, they do not have anything to go to and the other reasons being, uncleared landmines, Food and medicine FOC, Lodging FOC, well looked after and some anyway did not have anything anywhere, but, finding shelter and safety inside the camps – Something that you Apes can think of – similar to your Asylum seekers ha ? Taking the opportunity to satisfy the ulterior motives !!

  292. WOW !!!

    EXCUSE ME !!!

    WHO ARE THE REAL TERRORISTS???

    The state terrorism that’s what’s happening in Sri Lanka right now !!

    Why are we letting the history to repeat itself, first Hitler killing the Jews, now it’s Mahinda Rajapaksa (president of Sri Lanka) killing the innocent Tamils ?

    And the LTTE gets the terrorist name just for trying to save their own people?

    There are tones of evidence showing the Sri Lankan forces committing war crimes….and killing innocent Tamil civilians, and this is even after defeating the LTTE!!!

    So now that the LTTE is gone why colonizing and enslaving of the Tamils increase?

    We know who are the real terrorists and it’s the Sri Lankan government..

    WHERE IS JUSTICE IN THIS WORLD??????

  293. Sri Lanka is a country fo a genocidal and tribal madness of backwards and violent culture . :(

  294. Everyone has the right to protest in Canada !!

    Tamils have the right to BLOCK the GARDINER EXPRESSWAY in Toronto once in many months of protesting the mass murder of the 40 000 women and children !!

    Yes they did this to expose Sri Lanka most heinous criminal acts and genocide carried out on innocent Tamils in Sri Lanka and we protest here , in Canada in a peaceful manner.

    The Sinhalese Mass Murderers, on the other hand, use unlimited bombs, multi-barrel guns and aircrafts to butcher thousands of the innocent women and children .

    Sri Lanka defense minister openly said they used almost equal quantity of bombs that were used in the Second World War over Japan.

    If Sri Lanka had treated the Tamils as equals without any discrimination, there need not have been any blockage or demonstration held here or anywhere.

    Canada is a truly a free and democratic county not like in Sri Lanka.

    There is no white van abduction and killing here unlike in your country keeps that it mind.

  295. I also want to be a people smuggler and earn $20 million in one smuggling voyage!

    http://tinyurl.com/32mw7l3

    So, what have we learnt about these ‘persecuted’ SL Tamils sneaking into Canada?

    1. Each ‘persecuted person’, ‘refugee/economic migrant’ paid $30-45,000 for the trip.

    [we were told that these were poor people with only the clothes on their back as their only possessions.]

    2. The entire trip was arranged by the LTTE’s ‘Eelam Cruises’ division.

    3. The ship was re-fitted to take the maximum number of fake refugees.

    4. The ship sailed from Thailand and not from India or Sri Lanka.
    [I didn't realise that the LTTE were trying to carve out a separate state in Thailand! :) ]

    5. Amnesty International & Jim McD fully supported this ‘Eelam Cruise’. i.e. the right of criminals to engage in human smuggling.

    [This must mean that AI now support international human smuggling and illegal immigration. Another addition to AI's already long list of accomplishments. :)]

    Conclusion: 400+ lucky SL Tamils (including a number of LTTE cadres), falsely claiming ‘persecution & genocide’ jumped the queue in front of more legitimate migrants to bring their distinctive cultural advantages to Canada’s thriving multi-cultural society.

    Canada can now expect many more ‘Eelam Cruises’ to arrive containing distraught Eelamists with their standard litany of escaping from Genocidal Thailand.. proving that old saying, ‘No good deed goes unpunished’.

    Lucky Canada!

  296. The island nation Sri Lanka portrays is an icon of horrendous war crime atrocities and an unbridled ruling of the masses by a dictator government in power today.

    As is globally known after its atrocity of massacring more than 40,000 innocent Tamils in the last phase of Sri Lankan military war in 2009, the island nation Sri Lanka has resorted to all sorts of ‘huddle and hug’ political gambit with the help of other war collusion nations to wipe its blood of conscience from the national politics.

    Orchestrating hunger strike by a racist politician for the sole purpose of political gains, hiding behind other war collusion nations to gain patronage, dissemination of propaganda to mislead the western democratic nations and even its own citizens, enlistment of NAM countries to put pressure on the UN to drop the independent inquiry into the nature of the last phase of war on terrorism in 2009, instigation of Buddhist monks to churn out ripples of discordance and social unrest, suppression of freedom of speech and abduction of those dissidents to eliminate, raping of the Tamil women by the Sinhalese military and gangs are some of the deterrent techniques the Sri Lankan government use to both muffle the rebellious voice of its citizens and, pitifully, its own revolting conscience in national politics.

  297. The Tamil war waged by the Sri Lankan government has not only opened a hornet’s nest, but also, unsavourily, channels of corporate possibilities for war collusion countries like India, Russia, China, and other minor disarrayed countries.

    Corporate exploitation is not the restitution in kind nor has it the power of alleviating the suffering and abject living conditions Sri Lankan Tamils face today.

    The present condition Sri Lankan Tamils face today in their own homeland after the loss of basic human rights, loss of own land and house to live in, no recourse to means of subsistence, no possibility of getting a decent job, lack of medical facilities are plastic in nature, but not the results from natural causes.

    In other terms, these conditions are intentionally created by power hungry and racist Sri Lankan leaders in power today to expose the Tamils and other minorities to the bitterest experiences and hardships.

    In politics nothing is static.

    Everything changes and mutates in order to produce situations to befit or destroy the life.

    Even the image a politician creates for his or her personal enrichment will sizzle out after it has served the purpose for which it was created.

    If one believes in the omnipotence of power and its beguiled charm to misuse it, one is destined to be stripped of the power and be a victim to the image he or she has created.

    Satan dances to the music it has created within its own image. Satan thinks that the image lives on for ever.

    The worst part of Satan dance is that it pretends that it does not live in reality.

    If one destroys the image Satan has created, it is easy to see Satan sizzle out like a drop of oil on a hot pan.

    This is what is going to happen to those criminals in power in Sri Lanka. Just as a spider dies in the nest it has created to kill other organisms, the power hungry Sri Lankan politicians will end up in the whirlpool they have created to decimate others.

    In Sri Lanka there is no democracy today to give voice to the freedom of speech and the press. What oozes out to the outside world about Sri Lankan politics is only a manipulated propaganda to fool the western powers and the global citizens as well.

  298. Rajapaksa onslaught on basic rights is a common threat to all our citizens

    The tyrant desires that his subject shall be incapable of action, for no one attempts what is impossible, and they will not attempt to overthrow a tyranny, if they are powerless.”– Aristotle (Politics)

    The Samurdhi officials have shown that there is still a way. By refusing to tolerate the barbaric injustice done to a colleague and by using their collective strength to resist the über-power of the power-wielders, they compelled the Rajapaksa regime to digress, however temporarily, from its habit of impunity.

  299. Canada doesn’t have a Tamil “problem,” whatever critics of our refugee system may say about the arrival here of the cargo freighter MV Sun Sea with some 500 asylum-seekers.

    We processed 34,000 refugee claims last year; these arrivals won’t overtax the system.

    It is Sri Lanka that has a problem.

    President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s triumphalist government has failed to make the country’s large Tamil minority feel secure after the Tamil War last year.

    Until he does, people will continue to flee.

  300. 490 Tamil refugees shared a single toilet on board a cargo ship during a three-month voyage across the Pacific.

    A Tamil lawyer painted a grim picture of conditions on board the MV Sun Sea.

    The 490 refugees on board collected rainwater for their tea because water was in short supply. They sometimes made do with one meal a day.

    “They did not seem well fed,” said Tamil lawyer “I saw a lot of people limping with swollen feet. The journey was treacherous.”

    The RCMP said one 37-year-old man from Sri Lanka died during the crossing and Tamils said he was buried at sea.

    The Tamils, who say they were mistreated by authorities in Sri Lanka, are expected to apply for refugee status.

    A Tamil Lawyer said one Tamil told him he “didn’t mind sinking in the sea rather than being killed by Sri Lankan soldiers.”

    “He said he had a safe place to sleep in Canada,” a Tamil lawyer quoted the man as saying.

    NDP opposition politicians called on the Canadian government to uphold refugees’ rights, which are guaranteed under a United Nations convention.

    “This was a rough passage. This was not a pleasure cruise,” NDP MP Peter Julian (Burnaby-New Westminster) told a meeting of about 50 Tamil supporters at a Hindu temple in Burnaby. “They got on a ship because there is a measure of safety in Canada not present in Sri Lanka.”

    Burnaby resident Jay Selva, a one-time Tamil who runs a limousine service, said he takes exception to protesters in Victoria.

    “It’s not nice,” said Selva. “This is a multicultural country. Tamils who have come here work hard. We don’t hide. We follow the rules. The protesters forget that Canada is a land of immigrants. The Tamil community here is ready to do whatever it can to help them.”

    The UN says thousands of Tamils, including members of the Tamil Tigers , are being held in primitive conditions in camps in Sri Lanka.

  301. Time for Amnesty & the US State Department to call for a ceasefire….. in Afghanistan!

    The Taliban deliberately murdered over 3,000 Afghan civilians in 2010.
    http://blog.amnestyusa.org/middle-east/taliban-leaders-should-be-prosecuted-for-war-crimes/

    So by the end of 2010, there will probably be 6,000 dead Afghan civilians. Tragic.

    The West intends to stay in Afghanistan for at least another 10 years to stabilise the country. (Ha ha ha ha!)

    Probable civilian casualties expected by 2020, (est average of 2,000 per year) = 20,000.

    AI never shied away from calling for ceasefires between SL and LTTE during the conflict.

    Where’ the accountability for these preventable civilian deaths?

    Where’s the campaigning by ICG, HRW, AI and the usual cabal of HR groups demanding an immediate cessation of ISAF military activities and ceasefire with the Talibs?

    Oh… civilian casualties in Sri Lanka in 2010? Zero. Nothing. Nada. Nichts. Rien..

    I really must congratulate the West on racking up an impressive civilian death toll in the Mid-East and yet with a straight face attacks Sri Lanka for its own civilian death. Are there performance bonuses for those involved?

    The RepoMan wants to put the capsule on the 6 months old child. I thought, it was a bit too much . Our dear and honorable VP brilliantly did for us everything he humanely could !!

    One of the most hilarious among the jokes posted by the Peelamists here !!!

    1. Calling Lord of the Apes Piribaharan Honorable – LOL !!!!!! We are talking of a ruthless killer who killed his own kind (Tamils) who opposed him, His own members for disagreeing with him and got children to wear Cyanide around their neck and have AK 47′s in their hands – Indeed Honorable !! LOL Why not we get the queen to knight him and call him Sir – LOL !!

    2. Proves me right to call these terrorists mentally under developed Apes – When we condemn Cyanide capsules, they interpret as hanging around a 6 month old – LOL

    Why are we letting the history to repeat itself, first Hitler killing the Jews, now it’s Mahinda Rajapaksa (president of Sri Lanka) killing the innocent Tamils ?

    I against ask you the same question – Answer me if you have any brains left and any spine at all – How many Jews did Hitler have in his Cabinet or Government as a whole and How many does Mahinda has ??? If you manage to get your mind to work over time and answer this question, your question will be Null and Void.

    And the LTTE gets the terrorist name just for trying to save their own people?

    Again – look at the list of Own people killed by LTTE and it will answer your question.

    http://www.spur.asn.au/prominent_tamil_leaders_killed.htm

    Also,

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_attacks_attributed_to_the_LTTE

    Not a Bad record for an Honorable man who served “His” People ha ??? You must be really proud of the Ape Leader neda ??

    There are tones of evidence showing the Sri Lankan forces committing war crimes….and killing innocent Tamil civilians, and this is even after defeating the LTTE!!!

    Like the Bad Kollywood movie video that you did where people move positions and shake legs after being killed ???

    So now that the LTTE is gone why colonizing and enslaving of the Tamils increase?

    When Tamils came and resided in Wellawatte due to LTTE mistreating them, we did not call it colonizing – May be you have found a new meaning to the word colonization. Again, answer if you have a little bit of brains and a spine, what do we do about the Singhala and the Muslim people who were chased out of LTTE areas by the Apes ?????? Where do we settle them as they were in IDP camps for more than 15 years ????

    WHERE IS JUSTICE IN THIS WORLD??????

    With the questions that you have posted, let me ask you, Which world are you living in ????????????

  304. Boys 'abused' in Buddhist temple in Sri Lanka

    The under age boys were admitted to a hospital in eastern Sri Lanka with severe injuries

    The mother of one of the boys told that her son was asked to come to the temple and asked to stay overnight to prepare forms for a charitable event.

    Mother of a victim said

    "A group of men has come to the room at night when the child was sleeping in the monks' quarters. There have been four boys and when they were abused one boy has run to the junior monk for help but the monk has asked the boy not to say anything to the parents," she said.

    The mother added that all four boys have sustained injuries as a result of the sexual attack but her son was the one who sustained serious injuries.

    The medical report says that they have sustained physical damage due to forceful sexual abuse.

    When they were abused one boy has run to the junior monk for help but the monk has asked the boy not to say anything to the parents

    More than 500 child abuse cases have been reported from over 420 government and privately maintained children’s homes around Sri Lanka

  305. A senior Tamil politician says the expansion of military establishment would only cause further resentment

    He has questioned the government’s increased spending on housing for defence personnel in the north and east.

    Mr Anandasangaree, leader of the Tamil United Liberation Front (TULF) has questioned this rationale when thousands of displaced Tamils are sheltered in bare minimum tenements.

    “Many thousand people are living in the open with the sun as their roof” in the Vanni region according to Mr Anandasangaree, a former Member of Parliament and a moderate Tamil leader.

    He said “only hatred will grow among the Tamil people” who see the fast track construction activities for the defence personnel going on in the North and East of the country while they are living in the tents.

  306. I wanted to Single out this post as this was hilarious of them all !! These are the people whom we say are thinking from their Rectums instead of Head – Even primates think from the little bit of brains they have !!

    Let me take the extracts first !!!

    490 Tamil refugees shared a single toilet on board a cargo ship during a three-month voyage across the Pacific.

    No Pain – No Gain – Also, that is not quite worth it after paying USD 20,000 + to get on board the Economic Asylum Mission Boat ha ?? Could have taken an Air Plane for much less – could have chartered a plane !!

    The RCMP said one 37-year-old man from Sri Lanka died during the crossing and Tamils said he was buried at sea.

    Wonder how an 80 year old man and a 6 month old baby survived when this 37 year old young one died :? :( ??

    And would like to know where about in the sea this person was Buried ? I mean, if it was closer to the shores, I can understand one somehow or other digging a hole in the seabed and “Burying” the dead. But, imagine if it was in the middle of say the Pacific ?? Who would dive thousands of meters to dig a grave to “Bury” a dead ???

    Good joke noh ?? LOL !!!!!!

    The Tamils, who say they were mistreated by authorities in Sri Lanka, are expected to apply for refugee status.

    Wish to know whether I could get refugee status too – I mean, I am mistreated big time by the GOSL – I am wasting a load of time here and not a single – Thank you note – So Angry with them – Please tell me how to get my Refugee Status to Canada!!!!

    A Tamil Lawyer said one Tamil told him he “didn’t mind sinking in the sea rather than being killed by Sri Lankan soldiers.”

    Wonder what Lakshman Kadiragamar, Neelan Thiruchelvan and many other Tamils who were killed by the LTTE felt ??? Wonder where they would have gone to seek asylum ????? May be they would have thought better to get killed by LTTE than Join them ????????? (Just a thought – do you agree?)

    “He said he had a safe place to sleep in Canada,” a Tamil lawyer quoted the man as saying.

    Ayyo – I would have given a bed in my house if he really wanted a place to sleep !!! Why go all the way to Canada – Actually with the USD 20k spent, I could have got him the best room at Cinnamon Grand !

    “It’s not nice,” said Selva. “This is a multicultural country (Canada).

    Hmmm.. Yes – Initially there were the red Indians and the Westerners terrorized them and forcefully took over the land, Now Terrorists, under the disguise of Asylum seekers, spend thousands of Dollars and are slowly taking over the land – I am of course happy to send the terrorists to the otherside of the world from this blessed land, but, then again I feel sorry for the remaining Red Indians (not the White masters)- Now, in a few more years time, they will find the Peelamist building some false link between these Red Indians and them and calling it “Homeland” of Peelam !!!

    The UN says thousands of Tamils, including members of the Tamil Tigers , are being held in primitive conditions in camps in Sri Lanka.

    Now this sentence I took on a more serious note – Just met my friend who is a doctor who returned from the IDP camps where he worked for the past 3 months and told me, the remaining bunch are those who do not wish to go to their houses due to various reasons.

    for one, they do not have anything to go to and the other reasons being, uncleared landmines, Food and medicine FOC, Lodging FOC, well looked after and some anyway did not have anything anywhere, but, finding shelter and safety inside the camps – Something that you Apes can think of – similar to your Asylum seekers ha ? Taking the opportunity to satisfy the ulterior motives !!

  307. I think that to prevent the island nation Sri Lanka from slipping further into the abysmal political inferno, western democratic nations should adopt a policy to either groom the belligerent nation Sri Lanka to reinstate a policy of resettling the war displaced Tamils and other minorities soon, integrating them into the social and economic strata and withdrawing the military from the North and East provinces or implementing a collective policy to free the citizens of Sri Lanka from the regime to pave way for the independent homeland to the Sri Lankan Tamil minority as was the case in Kosovo.

  308. The island nation Sri Lanka portrays is an icon of horrendous war crime atrocities and an unbridled ruling of the masses by a dictator government in power today.

    As is globally known after its atrocity of massacring more than 40,000 innocent Tamils in the last phase of Sri Lankan military war in 2009, the island nation Sri Lanka has resorted to all sorts of ‘huddle and hug’ political gambit with the help of other war collusion nations to wipe its blood of conscience from the national politics.

    Orchestrating hunger strike by a racist politician for the sole purpose of political gains, hiding behind other war collusion nations to gain patronage, dissemination of propaganda to mislead the western democratic nations and even its own citizens, enlistment of NAM countries to put pressure on the UN to drop the independent inquiry into the nature of the last phase of war on terrorism in 2009, instigation of Buddhist monks to churn out ripples of discordance and social unrest, suppression of freedom of speech and abduction of those dissidents to eliminate, raping of the Tamil women by the Sinhalese military and gangs are some of the deterrent techniques the Sri Lankan government use to both muffle the rebellious voice of its citizens and, pitifully, its own revolting conscience in national politics.

  309. The Tamil war waged by the Sri Lankan government has not only opened a hornet’s nest, but also, unsavourily, channels of corporate possibilities for war collusion countries like India, Russia, China, and other minor disarrayed countries.

    Corporate exploitation is not the restitution in kind nor has it the power of alleviating the suffering and abject living conditions Sri Lankan Tamils face today.

    The present condition Sri Lankan Tamils face today in their own homeland after the loss of basic human rights, loss of own land and house to live in, no recourse to means of subsistence, no possibility of getting a decent job, lack of medical facilities are plastic in nature, but not the results from natural causes.

    In other terms, these conditions are intentionally created by power hungry and racist Sri Lankan leaders in power today to expose the Tamils and other minorities to the bitterest experiences and hardships.

    In politics nothing is static.

    Everything changes and mutates in order to produce situations to befit or destroy the life.

    Even the image a politician creates for his or her personal enrichment will sizzle out after it has served the purpose for which it was created.

    If one believes in the omnipotence of power and its beguiled charm to misuse it, one is destined to be stripped of the power and be a victim to the image he or she has created.

    Satan dances to the music it has created within its own image. Satan thinks that the image lives on for ever.

    The worst part of Satan dance is that it pretends that it does not live in reality.

    If one destroys the image Satan has created, it is easy to see Satan sizzle out like a drop of oil on a hot pan.

    This is what is going to happen to those criminals in power in Sri Lanka. Just as a spider dies in the nest it has created to kill other organisms, the power hungry Sri Lankan politicians will end up in the whirlpool they have created to decimate others.

    In Sri Lanka there is no democracy today to give voice to the freedom of speech and the press. What oozes out to the outside world about Sri Lankan politics is only a manipulated propaganda to fool the western powers and the global citizens as well.

  321. Tamil migrants say they are fleeing mass murders http://www.nationalpost.com/news/Tamil+migrants+t

    The Tamil migrants smuggled to the B.C. coast aboard the MV Sun Sea have released statements saying they are civilians fleeing disappearances and mass murders in Sri Lanka.

    In a letter obtained by the National Post, a group of migrants detained at a prison near Vancouver thanked Canada and disputed what they called Sri Lankan government propaganda about them.

    “We would like to ask the Canadian people and the Canadian Government to have faith in us to believe that we are innocent civilians who have been affected by the conflict,” it reads.

    “We are not terrorists. We would also like to let you know that we will abide and live by the laws of this country.”

    A second letter, signed “Tamil people from the Sun Sea ship,” says they traveled four months with little food, water, sleeping space, medicine and sanitary facilities.

    “We have traveled for almost four months with much suffering and pain. We have come here, to this wonderful country Canada, to protect ourselves and our family members from the murders, disappearances and violence that still exist in our native country,” it reads.

  322. Racism at every level

    The 1956 ‘Sinhala-only’ Act which made Sinhala the national language was a conscious attempt by the government to redress what was perceived as an imbalance in favour of the Tamils. In 1970 the government, in a bid to appease the disgruntled, unemployed Sinhalese youth, introduced ‘standardisation’ in education. Though meant to discriminate in favour of rural children, it effectively meant that Tamil students had to score higher marks than Sinhalese to enter higher education via a quota system.

    Each government since Independence has tried to appease the Sinhalese peasants by encouraging land colonisation schemes in traditional Tamil areas. Tamils allege that 1,500 of a total 7,000 square miles of ‘their’ territory has been brought under Sinhalese control. Such a claim to separate Tamil lands is a very recent phenomenon, brought about by the growing racisim of the state. For thousands of years Tamils and Sinhalese lived side by side – sharing kings, customs and foods, worshipping each others’ gods and entering into each others’ celebrations.

    But successive governments have turned the ‘Tamil question’ into a political football, vying with one anotherto gain the votes of the Sinhalese majority. Racism is now becoming institutionalised at every level. A recent survey by the Movement for Racial Justice and Equality showed that Sinhala schoolbooks stereotype the Tamils and provided children with only a partial, Sinhalese history of the country. The outbreaks of communal violence against Tamils are often incited by politicians cashing in on Sinhalese fears, suggesting that the Tamils are about to swamp the country and annihilate the Sinhalese Buddhist state forever. Recent speeches by one such politician, a cabinet minister, are circulating freely in Sri Lanka under the title Diabolical Conspiracy.

    Do you think that we should not give her a job, because and only because she is from Vanni ???? Please explain how providing a Job to an innocent women who would benefit from the Salary she would get as "Misusing a resettled woman" – I wonder whether you use the word Rape often to describe providing Jobs to people – I mean, I see that all good deeds in your Ape mind is Rape – LOL !!

    Also, GSP does not make a difference in purchase patterns but the price. We will produce at a lower cost so that GSP advantage will not be effective – That is basic Economics – lower the costs of produce – But then again, I would not expect you to understand it with the tiny capacity your brain possesses !

    It is intersting, singhalese don’t want to learn hindi?
    While you find hard to learn any language including your own (Tamil – as you don't seem to understand what most democratic Tamil leaders say, but, only what the Ape Piribaharan and a minority said), Most Sri Lankans are quite conversant in Hindi. So, it will not be a bad idea to ass another language to the vocabulary considering the job opportunities that China has and the 5 fold pay pack they give to those who can speak Mandarin and English.. Surprising ha ??

  335. I was recently on my way to Jaffna and huge billboards advertising everything from formula to mobile phones dominate most vantage points in Sri Lanka's former war zone. Where artillery and shells shrieked overhead a little over 15 months back, there are now gigantic, smiling women holding tubes of skin-whitening cream. In Kilinochchi, the former political and administrative nerve center of the Terrorists, a toppled water tank once symbolized the wanton destruction caused by the Terrorists. The tank is now obscured by a billboard for Highland milk; the ad is a vision of the future, the tank a vision of the past.

    After being cut off from the rest of the country for more than 25 years, commerce has arrived in this part of Sri Lanka. Business is booming, even on the swath of land known as the Vanni that was controlled by the Terrorists until mid-2009.

    Veramuththu Singamuththu, a displaced Tamil fisherman turned entrepreneur, is helping transform the landscape. A native of Kilinochchi, he fled his home village of Pulliyankulam, south of Kilinochchi, with his wife and three children in 2008. After a year on the run, and being held hostage by LTTE, they ended up in a camp for displaced civilians after fleeing the LTTE. They left in December 2009 with $220 from the government and aid agencies. Not long after, Highway A9, the link between Jaffna and the rest of the country, was reopened to civilian traffic.

    The 58-year-old saw his chance for a better life in the buses full of visitors that were speeding on the highway. He used his cash grant to set up a tea shop on the side of the road. "The best decision I ever made in my life," he says. He makes $300 a month selling phone cards, tea, snacks and even meatballs to visitors from the south and government soldiers. His boat now sits empty. "I don't think I will go back to fishing," he says. "This is much better and easy work." He's not the only one whose luck has changed. "Before the opening of the A9, things brought from outside were just too expensive here," says Murugesu Rajagopal, a furniture dealer in Jaffna. "Now we can sell at affordable rates and there are no shortages."

    The reopening of Highway A9 was a milestone for Singamuththu and, indeed, for the region as a whole. As thousands of tourists and civilians flooded north, entrepreneurs and companies like Dialog, the country's top cell-phone service provider, moved in. Within 90 days of the war ending, the phone company established a network in region. "Dialog's subscriber base and service utilization has witnessed substantial growth," says the company's chief executive Hans Wijayasuriya. All told, the demand for goods and services has jumped by double-digit margins since unrestricted road access was provided to Jaffna this year.

    However, the north's economic contribution is still modest; according to the Central Bank's provisional figures, the northern province's contribution to GDP increased only fractionally in 2010, from 3.2% to 3.3%. This tremor of change only feels like an earthquake, critics say, because this type of free-market trading seemed unimaginable during wartime, when supplies came by sea, if at all, and shortages, high prices and double taxation were common. But, we could expect to see a huge boom in this trend in the near future as things settle down and new infrastructure coming in.

    A foreign bank generated deposits of $8 million within a few months of opening a branch in Jaffna. MAS Intimates, a leading apparel manufacturer, is setting up a $3 million plant in Omanthai, on the southern edge of the Vanni. The plant will create 1,500 jobs with USAID providing a capital infusion of $600,000. The aid agency has plans to create 10,000 new jobs in the north through similar programs.

    More projects like this could help channel the peace dividend to ordinary people and, in so doing, help the government of President Mahinda Rajapaksa that faces the unenviable task of rebuilding the fractured country's economy. Singamuththu, for one, is cautiously optimistic they'll succeed. He's planning to repair a billboard that was recently swept away by gusts — another sign, he hopes, of prosperous times ahead.

  336. Repo man

    Are you was born yesterday ?

    Can you read between the lines ?

    The Sinhalese Brothel Owner who bribed the Sri Lanka Army soldiers to let him lure the fragile resettled Tamil women into life of rape and despair and not ino the promised prosperity.

    He Brothel owner was lying. He does not have well paid jobs in the factory. He planned to enchain the Tamils girls into sexual slavery. Luckily, TNA found out about it just in time and warned the Tamil ladies

  337. Canada doesn’t have a Tamil “problem,” whatever critics of our refugee system may say about the arrival here of the cargo freighter MV Sun Sea with some 500 asylum-seekers. We processed 34,000 refugee claims last year; these arrivals won’t overtax the system.

    It is Sri Lanka that has a problem. President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s triumphalist government has failed to make the country’s large Tamil minority feel secure after crushing the Tiger insurgency last year. Until he does, people will continue to flee.

    That’s a message Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government should drive home, as the United Nations, the United States and India have done.

    Now Tamils are fleeing abroad in desperation.

    So it was a bit much to hear Sri Lankan High Commissioner Chitranganee Wagiswara urging Ottawa to turn away the Sun Sea, with its women and children, to prevent Tigers from regrouping here. If Sri Lanka’s Sinhalese majority of 17 million were making the minority 4 million Tamils feel less threatened, fewer would be regrouping anywhere.

    Rajapaksa, instead of showing magnanimity in victory and delivering reform, the Sri Lankan authorities have chosen to rebuff a UN probe into war crimes on both sides and to focus more on economic rebuilding than on devolution. Reconciliation is a distant prospect.

  338. Tamil migrants say they are fleeing mass murders
    http://www.nationalpost.com/news/Tamil+migrants+they+fleeing+mass+murders/3404662/story.html#ixzz0wpZRBXwz

    The Tamil migrants smuggled to the B.C. coast aboard the MV Sun Sea have released statements saying they are civilians fleeing disappearances and mass murders in Sri Lanka.

    In a letter obtained by the National Post, a group of migrants detained at a prison near Vancouver thanked Canada and disputed what they called Sri Lankan government propaganda about them.

    “We would like to ask the Canadian people and the Canadian Government to have faith in us to believe that we are innocent civilians who have been affected by the conflict,” it reads.

    “We are not terrorists. We would also like to let you know that we will abide and live by the laws of this country.”

    A second letter, signed “Tamil people from the Sun Sea ship,” says they traveled four months with little food, water, sleeping space, medicine and sanitary facilities.

    “We have traveled for almost four months with much suffering and pain. We have come here, to this wonderful country Canada, to protect ourselves and our family members from the murders, disappearances and violence that still exist in our native country,” it reads.

  339. Racism at every level

    The 1956 ‘Sinhala-only’ Act which made Sinhala the national language was a conscious attempt by the government to redress what was perceived as an imbalance in favour of the Tamils. In 1970 the government, in a bid to appease the disgruntled, unemployed Sinhalese youth, introduced ‘standardisation’ in education. Though meant to discriminate in favour of rural children, it effectively meant that Tamil students had to score higher marks than Sinhalese to enter higher education via a quota system.

    Each government since Independence has tried to appease the Sinhalese peasants by encouraging land colonisation schemes in traditional Tamil areas. Tamils allege that 1,500 of a total 7,000 square miles of ‘their’ territory has been brought under Sinhalese control. Such a claim to separate Tamil lands is a very recent phenomenon, brought about by the growing racisim of the state. For thousands of years Tamils and Sinhalese lived side by side – sharing kings, customs and foods, worshipping each others’ gods and entering into each others’ celebrations.

    But successive governments have turned the ‘Tamil question’ into a political football, vying with one anotherto gain the votes of the Sinhalese majority. Racism is now becoming institutionalised at every level. A recent survey by the Movement for Racial Justice and Equality showed that Sinhala schoolbooks stereotype the Tamils and provided children with only a partial, Sinhalese history of the country. The outbreaks of communal violence against Tamils are often incited by politicians cashing in on Sinhalese fears, suggesting that the Tamils are about to swamp the country and annihilate the Sinhalese Buddhist state forever. Recent speeches by one such politician, a cabinet minister, are circulating freely in Sri Lanka under the title Diabolical Conspiracy.

    Canadian officials are prepared to admit those on board into their jails and say the matter will be investigated and prosecuted, but some have raised concerns that the Tamil Tigers are looking to exploit Canada's lax refugee policies to build their network and prepare for a new wave of violence. The Canadian government in 2009 took into custody 76 people said to be Tamil refugees who arrived by boat — the government is still processing them.

    The Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade said in a statement that the country is "aware" of reports about the ship and suggested the government would have a tough response.

    Let me give you some note worth exerts from the post !!

    For starters, I still remember seeing a photo many years ago of a four-year-old boy holding a machine gun and a cigarette hanging from his lips. He was one of the “child soldiers” recruited by the Tamil Tigers.

    It was the Tamils who decided to resort to the most brutal violence imaginable, and as such, they put themselves in the wrong. In other words, I can’t and won’t shed any tears over their “plight”. In addition, I have seen them operate up-close in my old Toronto neighbourhood, as have all my neighbours and other residents in the area at the time, so I know what they’re like and what they’re about. So pardon me if I absolutely refuse to admit even more of them into my country.

    What is to stop them, say, from picking up arms at some point in the future in an attempt to occupy a city like Toronto or a vast portion of it? Just as the Sikhs have brought their domestic conflicts to Canada, culminating in the bombing of the Air India plane, the Tamils, too, are trying to regroup on our soil and most likely will turn militant. Probably the main reason why Tamils in Canada have paid smugglers to organize the latest boatload is to increase their numbers for that very purpose. Are we going to sit idly by?

    This is utter nonsense, of course. We can prevent airplanes from landing if necessary, so we can certainly prohibit ships from entering our waters. I agree that thanks to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which has largely become devoid of any substance and now serves as carte blanche for criminals and terrorists from around the world, there isn’t much we can do once they are here, but we certainly have the right to turn away hostile vessels.

    AND MOST IMPORTANTLY !!!

  369. Only one way out of Sun Sea dilemma

    Sri Lanka’s sorry history complicates what to do with Tamil refugees

    I have a great deal of sympathy for Sri Lanka’s Tamil minority and their mistreatment at the hands of the island’s Sinhalese majority.

    During British rule, Tamils, who are largely Hindu, held most of the senior positions in commerce, the professions and the bureaucracy. They were more willing than their Sinhalese countrymen — mostly Buddhists — to accept missionary education and British institutions.

    After independence in 1948, Sinhalese majority governments implemented a form of reverse discrimination known as “the policy of standardization,” which made Sinhala the sole official language and brought most businesses under state control.

    The policy also reserved most major government jobs and contracts for the Sinhalese, which had the effect of taking away tens of thousands of private properties held by Tamils and turning them over to Sinhalese control.

    The result was a marginalization of Sri Lanka’s 3.2 million Tamils — who are outnumbered about six-to-one — and a rise in Tamil militancy, particularly after the bloody mayhem of July 1983, when 1000s of Tamil women and children raped, killed or burned alive by the Sinhala Mobs.

    They, the Sinhalese nationalists, including Buddhist monks, went door-to-door in Sri Lankan cities looking for Tamils to kill.

    Mobs dragged their victims into the street and either beat them to death with clubs and pipes or placed gasoline-soaked tires around their necks and set them alight, then stood back and watched as they burned alive.

    Almost all those killed were innocent Tamil civilians, including many women and children. Few, if any, were Tamil Tigers.

    Tens of thousands of Tamil homes were also looted, then burned to the ground. Hundreds of thousands of Tamils were forced to flee from the prosperous southern two-thirds of Sri Lanka into the economically poorer northern third, the traditional home of the Tamils. More than half of the nearly 250,000 Tamils now in Canada — the largest expatriate Sri Lankan Tamil population in the world — came here as part of the exodus that followed this infamous pogrom.

    During the quarter-century civil war that followed, nearly 70,000 people died, many of them Tamils. Sri Lankan security agents allegedly routinely resorted to torture of Tamil prisoners and many suspected Tigers “disappeared” while awaiting trial in Sri Lanka jails.

    War’s end didn’t end torment

    Since the end of the civil war — which concluded last year with a victory by the Sri Lankan army — the Sri Lankan government has been accused of “ethnic cleansing” of Tamils, kidnapping, torturing and executing them despite pledges it would treat them civilly and right the historic discrimination against Tamils.

    Thousands remain in deplorable Sri Lankan detention camps, where torture and summary executions are thought to be common. And some Western human rights groups even assert that the Sri Lankan government has encouraged Sinhalese to move north and take over Tamil farms and businesses in the northern and eastern provinces.

  370. Bala

    Get real!!! and stop spreading false accusations!!! if you accuse of something have proof!! You all are a bunch of idiots who spreads evil thoughts and violence to the entire world!! a disgrace to the human society!!

  371. It is high time, that the International community should verify these activities of Sri Lanka State, rather than just listen to their misinformation and false propaganda.

    This is no internal problem, it is an International problem.

    Therefore it should be in the hands of UN to investigate and provide justice to Tamils. Tamil problem is as old as 62 years.

    This is a genocidal problem this and no one could deny. UN is till 'dilly dallying' after the appointment of the panel to advise the UN Secretary General.

    In the UN security council last June 09, was hoodwinked by Srilanka.

    The Gullible states had believed it has irradiated the Tamil Tiger group.

    But these countries – collaborators have not been shown the true nature and intention of the Srilankan state.

    It was a RACIAL WAR…… not a war to eliminate the Tamil Tigers.

    State terrorism was unleashed since 1948 and culminated with the Black July when thousands of innocent Tamil civilians, including many women and children were ruthlessly massacred by the Sinhala Supremacists

  372. A question for Ganesa, Arunthavarajah , Arunan, Krishna, Boycott Sri lanka, Rohan & AI.

    With regard to MV Sun Sea, which sailed from Thailand – Given that you can buy a return flight from Bangkok to Vancouver for $2500, why couldn’t they fly?

  373. To the above post
    August 18th, 2010 at 3:01 am

    The Tamils stick to each other for safety !!!

  374. You deliberately overlook the fact that there are thousands of Sinhalese who are claiming and have claimed refugee status including the parents of the great Dr. Rohan Gunaratna, ( Sri Lankan paid agent and certified liar ) who have sought a protection visas in Australia, the coach of the Sorry Lanka swimming team for the 2000 Sydney Olympics and another officer who had served with the navy are personally known to me.

    All are Sinhalese Buddhists.

    Italy has tons of them.

    Canada has a lot and at the rate that the Sri Lanka is preceding, very shortly every Sinhalese and his dogs will seek greener economic pastures

  375. Sri Lankan state terrorism has seeped down into the communal life in Sri Lanka.

    Rather than ruling the island nation Sri Lanka by the law and order to achieve neutrality in the implementation of its constitution, irrespective of ethnicity and religiosity, the rule today under the helm of Sri Lankan President Mr Mahinda Rajapakse, has witnessed anarchy and deviation from the constitutional enshrinement of basic human rights.

    Ruling a country in contravention of the tenets of nationally and internationally established norms is a precursor of omen. The country’s present political litmus test is not promising at all.

    It has become an anathema to the power-embedded high-ranking government ministers to seek democratic ways and means to solve the problems of the minority community Tamils.

    The dangerous situation keeps brewing up in the volatility of the Sri Lanka’s national politics.

    There are hot spots of politically simmering realms where one has to guard against the blindness in denying a nation’s Tamil their rights, proper place in society and integration into the mainstream of politics.

    It is time IC came forward, instead of its soft-foot pedalling politics, to press Sri Lanka to adopt a policy of reconciliation with the minority citizens Tamils and correct for the past atrocities the government has committed by complying with the independent UN inquiry into its military excesses and massacre of innocent Tamils.

    Rohana wanted to jump off – yes we get a load of Sri Lankans including Singhalees and Muslims and Tamils who jump off for better economic prospects – No argument about it. We also had some teams that jumped off saying that they were representing SL in some sport.

    The situation here is different – here you get a bunch of Terrorists + people from south India who are officially crying out loud about a situation that was never there in SL in the first place and try to disgrace the country. If you want to go live in Canada or Mars, we would not care and we would not care whether you use the space shuttle or grass weed to get there, but, we vehemently condemn you creating lies about our motherland and trying to use these lies as covers to get to another country, in the process, as mentioned in many posts above, spoil the livelihood of peaceful people living in those countries – As mentioned before, I of course would love the idea of you Apes leaving this small Island for good and living wherever so that we could get on with our lives immaterial of our ethnicity. Also, your friend Rohana is such person – good for nothing fellow who wanted more money for the shitty job he does.

    During the quarter-century civil war that followed, nearly 70,000 people died, many of them Tamils. Sri Lankan security agents allegedly routinely resorted to torture of Tamil prisoners and many suspected Tigers “disappeared” while awaiting trial in Sri Lanka jails.

    War’s end didn’t end torment

    Since the end of the civil war — which concluded last year with a victory by the Sri Lankan army — the Sri Lankan government has been accused of “ethnic cleansing” of Tamils, kidnapping, torturing and executing them despite pledges it would treat them civilly and right the historic discrimination against Tamils.

    Thousands remain in deplorable Sri Lankan detention camps, where torture and summary executions are thought to be common. And some Western human rights groups even assert that the Sri Lankan government has encouraged Sinhalese to move north and take over Tamil farms and businesses in the northern and eastern provinces.

    Get real!!! and stop spreading false accusations!!! if you accuse of something have proof!! You all are a bunch of idiots who spreads evil thoughts and violence to the entire world!! a disgrace to the human society!!

  382. It is high time, that the International community should verify these activities of Sri Lanka State, rather than just listen to their misinformation and false propaganda.

    This is no internal problem, it is an International problem.

    Therefore it should be in the hands of UN to investigate and provide justice to Tamils. Tamil problem is as old as 62 years.

    This is a genocidal problem this and no one could deny. UN is till ‘dilly dallying’ after the appointment of the panel to advise the UN Secretary General.

    In the UN security council last June 09, was hoodwinked by Srilanka.

    The Gullible states had believed it has irradiated the Tamil Tiger group.

    But these countries – collaborators have not been shown the true nature and intention of the Srilankan state.

    It was a RACIAL WAR…… not a war to eliminate the Tamil Tigers.

    State terrorism was unleashed since 1948 and culminated with the Black July when thousands of innocent Tamil civilians, including many women and children were ruthlessly massacred by the Sinhala Supremacists

    The Tamils stick to each other for safety !!!

  385. You deliberately overlook the fact that there are thousands of Sinhalese who are claiming and have claimed refugee status including the parents of the great Dr. Rohan Gunaratna, ( Sri Lankan paid agent and certified liar ) who have sought a protection visas in Australia, the coach of the Sorry Lanka swimming team for the 2000 Sydney Olympics and another officer who had served with the navy are personally known to me.

    All are Sinhalese Buddhists.

    Italy has tons of them.

    Canada has a lot and at the rate that the Sri Lanka is preceding, very shortly every Sinhalese and his dogs will seek greener economic pastures

  386. Sri Lankan state terrorism has seeped down into the communal life in Sri Lanka.

    Rather than ruling the island nation Sri Lanka by the law and order to achieve neutrality in the implementation of its constitution, irrespective of ethnicity and religiosity, the rule today under the helm of Sri Lankan President Mr Mahinda Rajapakse, has witnessed anarchy and deviation from the constitutional enshrinement of basic human rights.

    Ruling a country in contravention of the tenets of nationally and internationally established norms is a precursor of omen. The country’s present political litmus test is not promising at all.

    It has become an anathema to the power-embedded high-ranking government ministers to seek democratic ways and means to solve the problems of the minority community Tamils.

    The dangerous situation keeps brewing up in the volatility of the Sri Lanka’s national politics.

    There are hot spots of politically simmering realms where one has to guard against the blindness in denying a nation’s Tamil their rights, proper place in society and integration into the mainstream of politics.

    It is time IC came forward, instead of its soft-foot pedalling politics, to press Sri Lanka to adopt a policy of reconciliation with the minority citizens Tamils and correct for the past atrocities the government has committed by complying with the independent UN inquiry into its military excesses and massacre of innocent Tamils.

  387. @ Professor Manojanraj:

    Dear Prof,

    Please explain something to me. Do you want all Tamils to leave SL for a better life in the West?

    If you do, what's going to happen to 'Tamil Homelands in SL' concept?

    Or do you want pro-Eelam Tamils, currently living in the West, to return to SL and re-claim their lost lands and houses and start living in multi-ethnic Sri Lanka?

    If not, why not? They're quite happy to live in a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural country like, say, Canada.

    Explain also please the thought processes of being a pro-Eelam SL Tamil living in the multi-cultural West, who simultaneously is fighting (or rather, failed to fight hard enough) to create a mono-ethnic, mono-cultural country called 'Eelam'. Puzzling, no?

    p.s. crying 'genocide' tends to reduce your credibility other than with the pro-Eelam mob :)

    The Tamils stick to each other for safety !!!

    They could have stuck together in an air craft anyways ya ?? A charter flight would have meant that the cost will become even lower – It is USD 1800 these days to Canada on Emirates and it’s faster too. Why travel for days and in the process killing one guy + torturing a 80 year old and a 6 month old ??

    Rohana wanted to jump off – yes we get a load of Sri Lankans including Singhalees and Muslims and Tamils who jump off for better economic prospects – No argument about it. We also had some teams that jumped off saying that they were representing SL in some sport.

    The situation here is different – here you get a bunch of Terrorists + people from south India who are officially crying out loud about a situation that was never there in SL in the first place and try to disgrace the country. If you want to go live in Canada or Mars, we would not care and we would not care whether you use the space shuttle or grass weed to get there, but, we vehemently condemn you creating lies about our motherland and trying to use these lies as covers to get to another country, in the process, as mentioned in many posts above, spoil the livelihood of peaceful people living in those countries – As mentioned before, I of course would love the idea of you Apes leaving this small Island for good and living wherever so that we could get on with our lives immaterial of our ethnicity. Also, your friend Rohana is such person – good for nothing fellow who wanted more money for the shitty job he does.

  390. The anti-Tamil xenophobia in Canada.

    Sri Lankan government has embarked on a mission, together with Chinese IT experts in the island, to distort factual information through high-tech propaganda. It not only tarnishes the image of Tamil Diaspora

    As the popular saying expresses ‘you never insult your enemy unless your enemy has a reason to challenge your motive and you fear it’. This proves the guilt of Sri Lankan approach toward the issue of the plight Sri Lankan Tamils face today.

    Why should Tamils flee from the island nation Sri Lanka if, as the Sri Lankan government proclaims, there are opportunities and political stability for them to live as citizens of the country to lead a life of their choice?

    Sri Lankan government has no answer except for its selective decimation of suspect Tamils and exposure of Tamils to abject living conditions.

    The reason is that there are criminals (Rajapaksas) in power in Sri Lankan government today.

    In the name of the law and order they are on a mission of eliminating Tamils and vandalizing Tamil culture and Hinduism

  391. Buddhism in the hands of these criminals serve as, contrary to the holy image of Buddhism anywhere in the world, a powerful weapon to churn out ripples of discord, racial violence and disharmony in Sri Lankan politics.

    Religion never gives problem in a society. But one’s own idea about religion gives problems in a society.

    This is what happens in Sri Lanka today.

    Buddhism is one of the six holy religions of the world. Buddhism has given the world the Holy Saint Dalai Lama who preaches love, harmony, meaningful living and, above all, kindness towards fellow human beings by living as an incarnation of his own higher ideals.

    This is not the intent behind the religion Buddhism in Sri Lanka.

    Painfully, it serves as a powerful drug to muffle the voice of ordinary Sinhalese in the national politics.

    Why does the Sri Lankan government still incarcerate war displaced Tamils in camps even after the war was over – almost 17 months to this date..

  392. Hey Prof Mano,

    Speaking as another village idiot, could you please bring your huge intellectual prowess to bear on the questions I asked earlier.

    I want to learn from the best Eelam scholars like you.

    Us village idiots need to understand these complex positions taken by the Great Thinkers of Eelam.

  393. The Tamil refugee from the ship, who I will call Suresh.
    He says that traveling so far on a boat was a new experience for him, and he spent the first few weeks vomiting.

    The vomiting, and the dehydration, made him so weak that he slept on and off for about five days. It was only after a week had passed that he mustered up enough strength to wash his face and find something to eat. Preparing food was increasingly difficult as the boat made it further and further into open water. “The waves were very harsh,” he says, “if some food was being prepared for us, the waves would knock all the pots and pans to the floor, and they would have to start over.”

    His father was kidnapped from his home in Vavuniya by a white van, and to this day, he does not know his whereabouts. A few years later, he himself was taken and kept for months. It was after this that his mother made it clear to him that he would have to leave for another country. She sold their land, and is now renting a home in Vavuniya. “She’s still there,” says Suresh.

    We, the Tamils lived longer on the island than you

    For example:

    Sinhalese wrongly suggest that they built some irrigation dam they have the right to call Ceylon their homeland(questionable assumption: The tanks are actually built by native Tamil).

    Oil drenched Sinhalese will kill anyone who dispute their claim.

    The Sinhalese fanatics started distorting history big time, because they felt inferior to the Tamils.

    But do you not think it only right that the government be left alone to conduct its own inquiry minus outside interference?
    A: It is also interesting to contrast the government’s insistence in the UN Human Rights Council, that it should be left entirely alone to conduct its own inquiry, with its strong support for an international investigation into Israel’s killing of nine people in the raid on the Gaza flotilla carrying humanitarian aid.
