Tamil Nadu MDMK party leader Vaiko flew out to Brussels to address seminar on Sri Lanka at EU parliament premises on Wednesday June 1st.

The seminar titled “Sri Lanka – Two years after the war: Will the perpetrators be brought to justice?” will be held at ASP 1G2 of the EP.

The seminar critical of the Rajapaksa regime is organized by the GUE/NGL – (EUROPEAN UNITED LEFT/NORDIC GREEN LEFT)MEP’s & Global Tamil Forum.

Members of the european Parliament &Tamil community representatives such as Vaiko (V.Gopalasamy) & GTF president Fr.S.J. Emmanuel will speak.

The left – leaning GUE/NGL group has 34 Members from 13 Countries in the EP.The GUE/NGL submitted a resolution condemning Lanka 2 weeks ago.

Due to efforts by SL envoy Ravinatha Ariyasinha the original harsh text of the resolution was diluted&passed unanimously as a compromise.

The livewire behind the original resolution & the seminar scheduled for June1st is Irish MEP for Dublin Paul Murphy. He will speak on Wednesday.

Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagham (MDMK) leader Vaiko has been a long standing supporter of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

Vaiko was an ally of Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalaithaa Jayaram but his party MDMK did not contest the recent Tamil Nadu elections.

Vaiko (V.Gopalasamy) is regarded as a powerful orator & is scheduled to address many pro-LTTE meetings in Europe after the seminar in Brussels.

The SriLanka “meeting” at European Parliament premises on June 1st would be conducted as a public hearing with people submitting “evidence”.

Tamil activists from Sri Lanka, India, UK, France,germany&Belgium & some other members of European parliament will “testify” at the “hearings”.

The “audience” at the “hearings” would mainly be of members of the European Parliament.Invitations have been sent to all MEP’s & 350-400 may attend.

The “hearing” will brief the MEPs on the origin of the Sri Lankan conflict,the war & its aftermath & what the prospects are for lasting peace.

The “hearing” will focus on the recent UNSG advisory panel report that found “credible allegations” against both the Sri Lankan Govt & LTTE.

Plans are afoot to get the “hearing” pass a unanimous resolution on Sri Lanka urging justice,rights&equality for the “oppressed” Tamil people.

A recommendation urging the European Parliament to send a fact -finding delegation to Sri Lanka & probe the humanrights situation will be made.

An all party members of European Parliament group for Tamils in Sri Lanka is also likely to be formed at the meeting in Brussels on June 1st.

The “Tamil solidarity” group consisting of British MP’s, Trade unionists & leftists is playing a big role in organizing the hearings” at Brussels.

  1. I live in Brussels.I heard about this move.I am confident our efficient ambassador to EU his excellency Ravinatha Ariyasinha will cope with this and do the needful

  2. The LTTE lost the battle at Mulivaikal. But the Tamil diaspora will win the war against racist Singala state. The battle of Brussels is only the first wave. More to follow like unceasing waves

  3. Why are they getting discredited joker Vaiko to do the speech?he is balloon without wind.no good.

    They must get my leader and commander Senthamilan Seeman down to give a really inspiring speech

    I am proud to say I am a soldier in Thalapathy Seeman Tamil force

  4. Existing Tiger leaders are toothless. Please take over the mantle of Tiger Leadership.I hope Vaiko fireworks will explode the European Parliament. Go Vaiko Go, raise the Ealam Flag high in Europe.

  5. Vaiko is a powerful orator. He passionately speak for the cause of Srilankan (Eelam?) Tamils.

  6. The EU is going to be the most important player in the srilanka issue in the future. The US will take a back seat and let the EU handle srilanka,because the US has enough on its plate while the EU hasn’t.Also srilanka comes under the EU orbit of influence because it is closer to the EU than the US.When the EU asks the US for support it will give it.The EU will take the leadership role.

    Until India becomes stronger this will be the situation.One day like china if india becomes strong it can assert itself and go it alone,but at the moment it comes under the EU orbit and influence.

    Srilanka going after india to block the EU and US is going to be a worthless exercise.India will toe their line. Russia is also unreliable because it also comes under the EU influence.

    China can manage independently,but is still not strong enough to assert itself in south asia. The maximum distance it can go is east asia and southeast asia.

    In a nutshell if srilanka decides to take on the Eu and the US combination it is buggered.

    vaiko adressing the EU will have an impact on its members as long as vaiko does not think this is his local audience in tamilnadu and spices up things unnecessarily.The members will be interested in valid facts and figures and not his rhetoric or flowery oratory.

  7. This is encouraging. One thing is for sure..
    “Sri Lanka can not fool the world any longer” the truth will triumph.

    Its pathetic to see the Sri Lankan diplomats trying defend sri lanka. Its like
    defense lawyers of murderer trying convince the judge, there should not be even a investigation.

    Mass murder is not something no one can get way with. Its does not matter how long it takes.
    Tamils will get justice. Singala State will hang its head in shame.

  9. sjoseph and Mahesh has been lecturing Sinhalese how monks should not indulge in politics. I wonder what their reaction is to Fr.S.J. Emmanuel addressing this gathering? Let me save both of these esteemed gentlemen the trouble of answering and guess their response: (a) Fr.S.J. Emmanuel is not a monkey priest unlike JHU monks because he is not racist and he speaks on behalf of the rights of the Tamil people unlike JHU monks who speak against granting rights to Tamil speaking people. (b) Addressing a gather is not indulging in politics.

  10. This is going to be a major headache for the SL regime. Vaikoo is a powerful orator, his English is very good. He is a qualified lawyer. He knows the depth of ethnic oppression since independence in great detail. He made a very good impact when he spoke at the British parliament.

    I am sure Vaikoo’s presentation will make a huge impact on the EU MPs. If I had been in Mahinda’s shoes I would be a very, very worried person.    

    The other side of the coin is that he is an ardent supporter of LTTE/VP. He is making a big mistake here, he must grow out of this nonsense.***************** 

  11. This is an important juncture for us Tamils again. The younger Tamil generation of all European states have come together and fight in a peaceful way for an international war crime investigation. UK, Germany, France, Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Switzerland, Italy … we do have so many skilled students. It is time for us to unite.

    We also have to include our friends here to join us and to make them aware about what has happenend / what is happening back home.

    At the end of the day we will Tamil Eelam come true. No matter what certain politicians/journalists are saying.

  12. it is great victory for tamil these days tamils problem every where, so tamil living not in sri lanka and cannot cover upo the truth and fact. sinhaleese cannot say outside sri lanka,every memeber of citizen must knew about the sinhaleese.shame to say sinhaleese let it.happen every where.lots people who aganist tamil bury their heads under pillow when they go bed like trans current

  13. Vaiko must go with Seeman, Nedumaran, Rejinikanth, Kanmozi and Thirumalvan. What a powerful combination, but, will we be fortunate enough to see them together. I agree of them Seeman is the best and the sharpest. From Thamil Ealam, only Nediyavan can carry the Tamil Tiger flag, there is no one to match him. Rudrakumar? He is a sisi

  14. I don’t agree. India has already trapped Lanka. I am sure India will create the Thamil Ealam for us. Mahinda Raja is an utter idiot, who only wants to give utmost pleassure to himself, and look after his family

  15. This is a very important Seminar for us Tamils. Sinhalese never can do anything like this, but may try to sabotage our efforts. Mahinda Samarasinghe is a clever chap

  16. Vaiko didn’t contest? Why?

    May be this is the opportunity for him to tap into the rivers of gold in the LTTE Diaspora.

    It is India that has to be watchful of Vaiko,

    With his new found friends in the Diaspora who have no place to re plant the LTTE, Vaikos’s target is Tamil Nadu.

    Srilanka is well insulated against Terrorists.

    EU delegates can apply for Visas on the net now, as long as they pay the correct fee.

    Vaiko will be a no no for sure.

    They will be like the rest of the hundreds of thousands of tourists who are flocking to peaceful and beautiful Srilanka.

    As for the Diaspora who are organizing these anti Govt forums . even a month Visa wouldn’t be a possibility.

  17. Shankar. What can EU do to screw SL in practical terms? Impose an embargo? Cut off IMF aid? The more times terrorist hit the developed countries, the more they will think of the LTTE’s expertise in militancy and they are harbouring snakes in their pockets. USA and UK are in a deep mess in Afghanistan and Iraqi. Both countries want to get out but don’t know how. They are dead scared to make another mess in Libya or Syria. Recently, India got snubbed by Russia while Russia continues to be SL’s friend. China is very close to SL. India has to toe pro SL line whether they like it or not. Russia is not happy with India because they have listening posts for CIA. SL is located in the most strategic route and if SL is against the western powers in the next war, it’s going to be curtains for the India, USA, UK, EU etc and they know this quite well. Recently USA bombed and killed 17 afgan civilians, women and children. That is not a war crime? MR is an popular elected leader while LTTE VP was a leader by force and terror. Not that I am in particular MR’s supporter. The fate of tamils in SL is interwined with that of singhalese whether we like it or not (this is what Mr jayaraj said some time back and is correct) and if the some tamils think they are different like the pink purple jellyfish, well I hope they shall live to see the results

  18. Should not the Tamil Prime Minister Hon. Rudrakumar be invited as an
    “Observer” in the initial stages?

    This is a GTF and not TGTE even.Also Rudra is not taken seriously by those serious about these things……….DBSJ

  19. Navin,

    You don’t make sense in your comments. Fr S.J E is not a politician but human right activis trying to get justice for the voiceless people of Wanni who are still under the miltary terror.

    The monks that you refer are in politics to do what? Making sure that the Tamils are not getting the equality in Sri Lanka. Don’t you think it may have been better for them to join the miltary than destroying the image of Buddisiam.

    In other words if they wants to be in politics they should get rid of monastery and join a political party instead of destoying the image of great Buddisim and the name of great monks. There are already big concerns that the criminals are getting into monastery as monks just to enjoy the free governmental perks. And when they get in they are trying to do things in their own way that are worrysome for genuine monks.

    They should not be wanting to have the cake and eat it at the same time.

  20. A Plea to Mr VAIKO.

    Sir please speak the truth only. Surely you care about the innocent Tamils who are suffering and suffered. But just talking about SL atrocities alone would not cut it.

    Please be impartial and talk about the LTTE atrocities against the innocent civilians.

    Only then you will be taken seriously.

    Thank you for taking interest in the well being of Sri Lankan Tamils.

    Selvan

  21. An answer to Xsrilanka.

    I wish your plan come to fruition and one the racist sihghala state will hang its head in shame.

    But do not forget we need to live our singhala brothers and sisters as sri lankan citizens. As long as we accept and work towards it. Equal rights and justice will come eventually.

    Thanks

  22. I have no doubt whatsoever that Vaikoo will convice the floating Europian MPs that impartial international investigation into the Sri Lanka’s war crime is an absolute necessity.

    He is a powerful orator in both Tamil and English. He is the Martin Luther King of Tamils.

  23. Vai.Kopalasamy who never speak TAMIL at home, is not from Sri Lanka or resident of Sri lanka. Now the cat is out of the bag. EU / USA is behind the LTTE terrorists. That is why they ask this Indian and Catholic Vicar general to speak about Sri lankan Tamil issues.Fr. Emmanuel and VaiKo are not representing Tamils in any way but they are the drum beaters for LTTE terrorists only!

    Why cannot EU ask Karuna Amman or Douglas Devananda to speak because both of them are resident in Sri lanka?

    Further EU countries were running SLAVE colonies and still do the same.

  24. Why are we inviting Vaiko from Tamil Nadu? He is also one of the reason for our sufferings. We should invite TNA leaders, they witnessed the sufferings.
    When diaspora Tamil leaders going to change? Funding Vaiko’s trip using hard earned money of diaspora tamils is a waste, instead we should use this money to rebuild few families in North and East.
    I am a Roman Catholic and I used to have high respects of Rev.S.J. Emmanuel. But now my respects to him are dwindling down. He wants to fight for a lost cause and make our people suffer more. I pray to God that almighty God will make know the reality and change him.
    Harry.

  25. It is a well known fact that monks are more than a stumbling block to granting minority rights.It is further an undeniable fact that they organized and executed pogroms from the holy corridors of temples and priest wards of hospitals against Tamils repeatedly.Make no mistake, no government current, future or past could ever ignore the the power of Buddhist clergy.They are the root cause of the racial conflict and priests like Fr. S. J. Emmanuel and Prabakaran are the side products which come with it like it or not.

  26. He has not started a political party.

    There is something like Abath Dharmam. In normal circumstances it is wrong. But in this instance all the Tamil representatives have been killed. Why not talk.

    By the same way will you say Guru Gobind Singh indulged in politics. He fought against injustices. He exhorted people to stand up on their own feet and even to die in their own strength, but going down fighting.

    Will you say that is also indulging in politics.

    One has to be human first and then one can be the ‘Son of the God’.

  27. Vaiko challenged the Govt in the courts on the slapping of the ban on them. At that time he was reprimanded for indulging in talking like although he is talking to a crowd of party people by the Judge.

    He is basically a Lawyer and a good speaker.

    Let us see what happens now.

  28. Vaiko was never reprimanded by court. In fact, his arguements against Sterlite was well appreciated.

  29. Yes you can go with Karuna Amman and Douglas Devananda to speak because you 3 share the s(h)ame!

  30. He is the one of the genuine political person who care about island native tamils most than put him self in risk.very suitable person to explain our sorrow and plight in SL to the the world.First he is more pro-tamil supporter than pro-Ltte.

  31. Oops! I missed these two. Thanks Mahesh for pointing it out.

    (c) Fr. S. J. Emmanuel has not started a political party but only a non-governmental organization (BTF) that interacts with politicians to discuss applications of theology in ethnic reconciliation in Sri Lanka where as Sri Lankan rabidly racist monkey monks have started political parties to prevent granting of political solution to Tamils.

    (d) *All* Tamil politicians have been killed. I most certainly agree with you on this one: TNA guys are truly walking corpses.

    ———-

    By the same way will you say Guru Gobind Singh indulged in politics. He fought against injustices. He exhorted people to stand up on their own feet and even to die in their own strength, but going down fighting.

    Guru whoever was certainly right to stand up because he stood up to protect the rights of the Tamils. And I agree that Sri Lankan rabidly racist monkey monks were very wrong for they stood up against the rights of Tamils.

  32. “Why cannot EU ask Karuna Amman or Douglas Devananda to speak because both of them are resident in Sri lanka?”
    Because they will not be able to get a visa.
    After Karuna went to UK with a faked passport, aided by the Sri Lankan Govt., he was caught by the UK authorities
    and jailed. Recently USA refused to grant a visa to Douglas, though he is a puppet minister in Lanka.

  33. He is a powerful orator in both Tamil and English. He is the Martin Luther King of Tamils.

    Then how come Indian Tamils do not vote MDMK?

  34. ganesh

    I think all of these people you mention should be put on EU aqgenda for speeches.Every week one person giving speech for 2 hours.That way the EU members will get sick of us and decide to be the first to recognise tamil nation.

    karunanithi also should be wheeled in. jayalalitha also should come with shashilekha. TNA also one by one.What about vijayakanth?female members of EU will be happy to see him.Also don’t forget Rajanikanth.A male bust of MGR should also be brought in and we should show some of his movies to them like “adimai penn”,”Rickshawkaran” and the one and only “naan anaiyittal” song should be played,because MGR is at his revolutionary best when he sings this.

    EU will be glad to recognise eelam just to get rid of us.

  35. I really support anyone who stand up for the victims of war crimes. Vaiko, Tamils salute for your support toward Tamils in Sir Lanka.

  36. Gavin says

    Shankar. What can EU do to screw SL in practical terms?
    ——————————————————-
    There are many ways a powerful block like that can give us problems.We should draw the line where are sovereignity is concerned,but like VP we should not just go and take on powerful people unnecessarily. If it is necessary, yes,but to save the skin of the rajapakshes for their transgressions,no.The whole country can’t suffer because of them. They should have made careful decisions putting the country first. Wiping out the LTTE was good for the country.The lack of transparency and accountability of the process was not good.It is now the duty of the rajapakshes to repair the damage without antagonising more and more powerful people on behalf of this country and just asking what can they do to us. Why should a tiny country take that risk.There is no free lunch in this world. If someone comes to help us they will want something in return some day.We become a ‘colony’ of china or russia and our people will just have to stomach it as they swarm and stomp all over us one day.It is the next generation that will as usual pay for this generations mistakes.

  37. It’s great to see that proud Sri Lankans, once again, are making sure that Elaam continues to be a colourful dream.

    Come one Vaiko or one million Tamil terrorists piggy backing on one million Vaikos. We shall never recognize that there’s anything ‘special’ for ‘Tamils’. We’ll fight to the finish.

    Nothing…ABSOLUTELY NOTHING special should be given for Tamils, but everything must be open for Sri Lankans.

    OMFG… if after the defeat of Tamil terrorism, these lowlife b*stards display their ambitions to rape Sri Lanka like this… even a child could imagine what would have been in store for us if the terrorists had won… or a political solution exclusive to Tamils, were given.

    Tamil terrorists… our tasty LUNCH… Waanga Machaan… nee suruka suruka waanga.

  38. ganesh

    You don’t understand that india is very reluctant to create eelam because it will have friendly tamils on one side and unfriendly sinhalese on the other side, who will join india’s adversaries and try to destabilize it.Our people went gung ho on eelam because they drew a parrallel with the creation of bangladesh.That is like comparing apples with oranges.When india created bangladesh it had on its two sides 2 unfriendly people.By creating bangladesh itmade one side friendly.

    So if india wishes to create eelam it will only take place if sinhalese and tamils become unfriendly towards it.If the sinhalese firmly move in with china and the tamils are agitating against india too,then india might think the best thing is to have at least the tamils as their friends to destabizize srilanka and will help to achieve eelam.

  39. Yo Sivananthan,

    What language does Vaiko speaks at home? just curious to know and also, how can you ask two GOSL ministers to speak for Tamils? If they do, they will paint a rosy picture and not mention the truth, exactly will toe the line of their master, MR, who said in RANAVIRU day;

    “SL Armed forces were carrying gun in one hand UN charter of rights/human rights in the other hand”

    I was puzzled when I heard this, then who shelled the “No Fire Zone” and the numerous hospitals? Sinhalese civilians???? if not, got to be the damn CHINESE!

    Anyway who is going to provide them visa? may be a bank like Commercial bank or HSBC, but not any country my dear!

  40. Why are you defending these people who are the stumbling blocks to the ethnic reconciliation?

    When you mix religion and politics why do you oppose the other person from doing that.

    First you root out these people from the politics and then you can ask the ilk of Fr. Emmanuel follow suit.

  41. It is the Sinhalese who started all these things. You are now equating the victim and a perpetrator.

  42. All people everywhere must understand, War IS the crime!

    In this day and age, Those who take up arms, no matter what the cause, will lose.! The path taken by Mahatma Gandhi is not the easy one. It is the correct one. In war, even if you win, you lose.

    Would the Tamils in Sri Lanka be better off today if they had kept the faith in Democracy and the political process? Surely they would have! Would the Palestinians be better off if they had not placed their hopes on their fellow “Arabs” to come to their rescue..? Surely, they would have.

    Today, If they had continued to “be fruitful and multiply” the numbers alone would demand and no doubt, receive justice. My point here is, In this day and age, no matter what the problem, give it time, it will resolve itself. Nobody has the right to kill anyone.. not for self determination, racism, ideology, religion or whatever.

  43. When you mix religion and politics why do you oppose the other person from doing that.

    Gee, never thought of that before! However, I was thinking of asking you the following but then considering the flexibility you have shown in the past when it comes to reasoning (or the lack of it), I changed my mind:

    “When you oppose mixing religion and politics why do you support Fr. Emmanuel for doing that?”

    Now let me guess your next response: “I never supported Fr. Emmanuel’s activities!!!”

    First you root out these people from the politics and then ***you can ask*** the ilk of Fr. Emmanuel follow suit.

    d’oh! please don’t trouble yourself #-o

  44. Who is this Gopalasamy / Fr.Emmanuel to Sri Lankan Tamils? They are the paid LTTE agents of LTTE. They make a living with the dead bodies of Tamils of Sri Lanka!

    SL Tamils have their elected representatives. TNA or EPDP or Karuna or Pillaiyaan is better than this Gopalasamy and Emmanuel to talk on SL Tamils!

    Growup to understand the democracy!

  45. Gopalasamy speaks TELUGU at home.

    Rajapaksha was right. No Fire Zone(NFT) was created by the SL government for the civilians and not for the LTTE terrorists who went to the NFZ with their heavy guns. They were catching children inside the NFZ.

    Returning fire at the direction of the opposition fire. That is the basic way of fighting. LTTE fired at the army from NFZ. Do you think the army should think the civilians were firing from the NFZ?

    Better blame the LTTE terrorist who went inside the NFZ and took the people as hostages to be used as human shields!

  46. USA refuse VISA to Douglas because he arrested a CIA couple in Jaffna when they distribute money to Tamil hooligans! USA got caught red handed. But Deva is a HERO for all patriotic Sri Lankans!

    Sri Lankan Tamil problems balooned with the money from CIA.

  47. You must be escaped or illigaly access Ankoda hospital
    Computers .So Tamils are not sri lankans ?
    Then why you occupying our land. Let’s declare as separate country , Ankoda sick?

  48. Really? They are not paid agent of warcrime regime or puppet like you. They live in real democratic country and have the right to freedom of expression without any fear. Srilanka full of duplicity and zero democracy. Sinhala racist politicians grap the Tamils rights and benefits to get majority support for their terror on Tamils. This was the policy of the zero democratic sl politics. Karuna &dd accept this for bones and shake their tails, infect they are not democratically elected from Tamils. You and your democracy should grow from zero democracy!?

  49. What can the EU do? Absolutely nothing. What happened when they stopped the GSP + scheme? Nothing again. The economy hasn’t collapsed, our stock market is one of the best performers in the region. Vaiko is an lunatic imbecile in TAMIL NADU POLITICS he is like a Mervin Silva without the muscle or Wimal Weerawansa just a loudmouth without a voter base. All those who will be attending are basically singing for their supper, without the diaspora funds/votes they will be penniless beggars.
    Ealam is Tamil Nadu and India will never let that happen. So stop wasting time and get on with your life’s, like the rest of the people in Sri Lanka who are rebuilding their lives after 30 years of hell.

  50. I realy worried why most of the sinhalese people dont understant what is real proploms to Tamil.One thing sinhalese must realise so far tamils been treated very badly since now for nothing.what is terrer so far tamils made or sinhalese made.sri lanka is very small country and two many ethnic living. why only sinhalese or buddist monks and sinhala politician thinks in racist way to make sinhala state.Tamils aske only egual right or divied. when husband and wife cannot live to gether simply deceid for divorce.why tamils cant think of it. why sihalese happy to killed more than hundred thousand tamil civilian. just innocent people. oneday you have to answer for this terror made by rajapakse famile and who support to killed this people.This is not pudda jayanthy.

  51. Dear Vengai- You have the label of racist on the wrong personage. It is the LTTE who are racists unable to tolerate non-Elamist (whether they be Sinhalese, Tamils or Muslims) in their vicinity. The political agenda behind Elamist has nothing to do with equality, or humans rights and everything to do about a homeland for a homeless people. The Sri Lankan Tamils have a homeland sir, there is not need for them to have Elam. It is those outside of Sri Lanka that are by hook or by crook trying to take something from the somebody that is not theirs. Shame on you for pulling the racist card. You are a racists from your very words.

  52. The Diaspora has no claim on a country they left for ecomomic lust. Leave Sri Lanka to those Tamils who are at last freed from terrorist thugs of the likes that some mislead, mostly coerced Diaspora, supported. The real human rights issues and crimes against humanity lie with the LTTE and those supporters who willingly paid money to spill the blood of their own brothers and sisters in Sri Lanka.

  53. “Mass murder is not something that one can get away with” The LTTE did and your acting as if nothing happened. The pot calling the kettle black! That is the problem with this whole issue. SLG had a duty to its citizens to stop terrorism. LTTE had not duty to murder all the Tamils that it did during its bloody oppression of the north and east of Sri Lanka for over 30 years. Your blind to reason. Give it up.

  54. keep on dreaming LTTE. All you can do is influence few EU parliamentarian to wash your dirty laundry. Your assessment on international playing field is unrealistic and mostly influence by your imagination. Get real buddy.

  55. I am against religious leaders involvement in politics.

    However, Srilanka seems to be an exception. GOSL itself is dictated by buddhist monks. the trend is set by the majority sinhalese.

  56. Two years ago, this ‘Ankoda’ metality was the key, paramount ingredient MANDATORY for us to embrace in order to defeat the ‘unbeatable’ Tamil terrorists! Because the proud lions were ‘sleeping’.

    We are now preparing for the future.

    Here’s the fastest route to Elaa. Scream “three cheers to Tamil elaam” and… flush the toilets you clean in the West.

  57. NO..HERE IN TAMIL EELAM..IF SINHALESE DONT LIKE IT..YOU CAN GO BACK TO WEST BENGAL..YOUR ORIGINAL HABITAT..

  58. Shanker. I do not think the GOSL is antagonising the EU in anyway but the EU is doing just that by bringing in people to talk when those people are LTTE supporters and people who are biased and has least amount of credibility. It is just to destabilise the GOSL which has now won a resounding victory. In war there is no accountability. It is a killing machine and after the killing we cannot analyse what happened because many witnesses are dead. This sort of talk at EU just fans communal hatred of people who just want their wounds to heal. All those who fan hatred live quite comfortably and the poor buggers who get elated with their bull shit words go towards violence. SL has 80% Singhalese and 10% Tamils. Unless the latter gets the formers trust, nothing will move forward for them. Many Tamils know this. They are not idiots but they are some times foolish because they should put pressure on these jokers like Vaiko who are trying to screw their lives again to shut up and get lost.

  59. Vaiko is an advocate and what is wrong if the diaspora wants an advocate like vaiko to represent them?

  60. The Guru Gobind Singh stood up to the rights of his people. He was right.

    You are also right when you wrote ‘And I agree that Sri Lankan rabidly racist monkey monks were very wrong for they stood up against the rights of Tamils’.

    Why should the monks who are expected to be neutral stand against the Tamils?

  61. Gee, never thought of that before! However, I was thinking of asking you the following but then considering the flexibility you have shown in the past when it comes to reasoning (or the lack of it), I changed my mind:

    “When you oppose mixing religion and politics why do you support Fr. Emmanuel for doing that?”

    Now let me guess your next response: “I never supported Fr. Emmanuel’s activities!!!”

    Good conduct or the righteous conduct is not a one way street. There is a saying ‘Dharmo Rahshiti rakshithaha’

    It means that the Dharma saves the one who saves dharma and its extension is the same dharma destroys one who destroys the dharma.

    Do unto neighbour what you want him to do to you. Your monks were the original sinners who instigated the Sinhala masses into action against the Tamils.

    Why not they first make a clean U Turn and come out clean. The VP and the Fr. Emmanuel are all only the effect of the original cause which was your monks.

  62. The fate of tamils in SL is interwined with that of singhalese whether we like it or not.

    And vice versa.
    Many singhalese forget that.

    None of my Tamil friends neighter seen or know what Nediavan look like or what his policies or what he has achieved so far. At least we have seen Rudras speeches and pictures and TGTE election results etc.

  64. wishfull thinking but don’t trust the white man again,150 years you lick their
    shoes but 1948 they gave you the elbow.you follow them up here, spending the
    money for their political purpuse still they gave you the elbow in 2009.So don’t turst them again they allways give you rotten string.(pochsuk kagiru)

  65. dear sivanathan
    vaiyapuri gopalsamy may speak telugu at home.but he was born in tamil nadu and that too in south tamilnadu which shares no border with andhra pradesh.telugus in tamil nadu who have settled for centuries have been loyal to tamilnadu,its culture,language.telugus have contributed immensely to tamil language if vaiko is telugu and not a blue blooded tamilian as you say then sarvapalli radhakrishnan,k.rajnarayanan,pattukottai azhagiri are also not tamilians.for your information periyar was a kannada speaking tamilian no one cared about his linguistic background.sivanathan why have a tamil name better change yours to sivanayaka lol.last but not least gopalswamy is not a politician rather a good human being.people who have been in touch with him will vouch for it.only mistake he has done is being emotional which is not a desirable quality in tamil politics.

  66. Yo! James Thenuwara. After terrorizing the south for 30+ years do you think Sinhalese love u guys?  Stay where ever u are and make it comfortable we don’t need u here in our homeland and your dreamland

  67. MotherLanka’s birth certificate includes the threat of Tamil terrorists.

    Luckily for us, the birth certificates of Tamil terrorists includes STUPIDNESS.

    So all proud Sri Lankans have to use that key trait of the Tamil terrorists to divide them into small groups and arrange killings or exodus.

    There’s no need to hesitate. After all, the western masters of the Tamil Terrorist Diaspora too have been using them for ages for profit, while promising ‘moon’ and ‘stars’!

    TTD is trying hard to make a comeback… Let’s VOW to surprise them with our Wilkinson swords.

  68. These are LTTE supporters and LTTE in EU ..the terrorist who lost everything for Tamils. LTTE lost the war and now trying to do the worse for Tamils. 80% of Tamils of the western world had gone to Sri Lanka after the war and moved very freely without fear . Vaiko lost in the Indian elections and he did not contest this time he knew he will loose again. All loosers meet. Wake up Tamils ! Accept the reality and not live in dreams which you can never materialize. 12% Tamils in Sri Lanka still have the chance to live in peace in SL if they want which most of them are doing now ..sadly not the diaspora and jokers like Vaiko has something to do because he has nothing to do in his own India

  69. may be EU can change its policy but nothing will be happen in SL. only govt officials may be can effect.. suffering of tamils will continue not you tamils the poor living in SL.

  70. who cares about english Language, In eu all languages are excepted only british use english. respect your own language and people first. and this vaiko or what ever is only a paid typical indian Indian ( with all my respect to Indian people who great and nice) .

  71. Oh !!! its a private seminar organised by European United Left/Nordic Green Left & Global tamil forum led by Judas S.J.Emmanuel in a private room in the Brussel’s parliament.

    How many members represent the EUL/NGL in the European parliament ? Just 53 members. That is negligible. They are no power brokers. They are also rans with lot of idle minds.
    So, they set up a private room in EU parliament in brussels to which they have access and milking some money off the GTB & pro-ltte disspora.

    What is the big deal here. will they be able to shake a hair in the body.
    Just looking for some CHEAP publicity.

    LTTE CURSE has already hiy Europe. The Cucumber deaths. E’coli. Its spreading. American Mid West experiencing tornados. Joplin devastated.
    Supporting LTTE & pro ltte Diasspora has become a curse and a plague. It is now spreading through Europe and America.
    THIS IS RETRIBUTION. HAND OF GOD CATCHING UP WITH THOSE COUNTRIES ENGAGED IN PRO-LTTE DISSPORA MALICE.
    May God save those afflicted countries.

  72. Malayalam MGR Thelunku Vaiko Kannada Rajani Tamil Semaan all support to eelam Tamils. Only halfboils like siva support to mahinda.

  73. Jagan explaining to a sick man like Siva is an utter waste of time. He will never understand Dravidian concept. Unfortunatly he thinks he knows everything. He will never ever underastand the relationship…between Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannadiga, Thulu etc. These people can only emit venom. He is a supporter of innocent Sri Lankan Policemen killer Karuna, and the murderer Douglas. Just ignore him…that is all he deserves.

  74. MAH, we did not leave srilanka/eelam for economy we left to empower Eelam it has nit been completed yet.We are and were or will not claim Srilanka we are only claiming our Eelam, your are as usual mistaken.

  75. LTTE ic completely out from SL soil tamil people in SLenjoy the freedom and opportunity.
    Foreign tamils lost big business of collecting money from others. tThat is the interest that they are trying to reactivate. They are the only people talk about ELAM interested on EELAM. These fire flies drop down little by little and vanishes with time.

  76. Wonder whether Mr Nediyawan, one of the few with “hands on experience” is addressing the Forum?

    May be that is the reason for his early bail,despite the complaints of one of their own in Srilanka, a top Govt agent who was threatened with death by Mr Nediyawan from Norway.

  77. Why should the monks who are expected to be neutral stand against the Tamils?

    Because the hawkish monks are rabidly racists and stupid like monkeys? Another possible reason you/sjoseph had cited earlier was the violent nature of Theravada Buddhism followed by Sinhalese. I thought you had it all figured out– did you not?

  78. Why All Tamil people live every where in the world blame Sri Lankan Government for ending the war.With out your help LTTE never can buy any wepons. So every single one of you who gave money to LTTE is responcible for every person died in that conflict.

  79. Israel Ambassador to Srilanka said yesterday, that they were there when the bombs were exploding and they will definitely be now when Srilankans are enjoying peace and prosperity.

    He further said that Srilanka has tremendous potential in Mango and potato farming and they are helping in a big way to harness this potential.

    He also said the Israelis are investing heavily in resorts, and is a good sign that they are there for the long haul.

    Europeans only helped the LTTE all along to explode the bombs.

    Tried to rescue Prabakaran even at the last minute.

    Gave safe havens for the LTTE big wigs.

    Allowed then ,and still allow them to collect money and grow the LTTE even in India.

    EU hit the rural poor where it hurts by withdrawing their trade concessions.

    So what is new in sponsoring a talk fest in their own backyard of EU parliament, with the most vocal LTTE protege Vaiko as the main event.

    Srilankans need not fear when they have genuine friends with guts, like Israelis on their side.

  80. go through this and come out with answers yourself.

    —-

    Bloody hell. Why should I read a book to find answers to questions that I don’t have? You think I wrote- “And monks are the product of … ?” of because I do not know the answer to the question?

  81. Your monks were the original sinners who instigated the Sinhala masses into action against the Tamils.

    Ok, that’s something new! We are indeed making progress here:-)

    Getting back to the point, according to you, first the original sinner rabidly racist hawkish monkeys make a big U turn and then Fr. Emmanuel will follow suite? But then that implies Fr. Emmanuel is involved in politics which he could not be since he doesn’t have a political party– so why should the monkeys make a U turn?

  82. Teewee says Tamil people enjoy freedom and oppertunity in Sri Lanka ?
    Just what exactly is he on ? it must be really good stuff it’s blown his mind right out of reality.

  83. anonymouse says

    Srilankans need not fear when they have genuine friends with guts, like Israelis on their side.
    ————————————-
    Best of luck with the muslims next.You might do better with them than the tamils. Choose your friends carefully they always say.Blake would have told his israeli friends,srilanka is under pressure at the moment,this is the time for you to inveigle into their confidence and make them the only friend you have in the world other than us.

    In a nutshell take the crap that the israeli ambassodor dishes out with a pinch of salt.Making israel our friend will be at the expense of many other friends we are having at the moment.

    israel reminds me of the former south african apatheid regime going everywhere begging for friends.They ruined the careers of our cricketers too with 20 year ban slapped on them for touring south africa. Fortunately warnapura told the 16 year old arjuna not to come and lose a promising career.

    Fortunately the crafty mahinda will not fall for that line like you a simpleton.He will stick with his arab friends and tell the israelis to stop building settlements on palestinian territory and vacate their lands.

  84. gavin says

    In war there is no accountability. It is a killing machine and after the killing we cannot analyse what happened because many witnesses are dead.
    ——————————————
    Everything in life is accountable.Otherwise we will always find excuses to not be accountable for the wrongs we do.That is human nature.If something goes wrong somebody has to be held accountable so that things like that do not happen again.

    Your contention that war justifies killing innocent civilians wilfully is analogous to the recent killing of about 200 husky dogs in canada that faithfully earned its owners lot of money during the winter olympics by pulling sledges with tourists in it.After the olypics owners decided feeding them is too expensive and killed them mercilessly in horrifying manner some injured ones being bludgeoned to death,others being shot and one running with its eyeballs hanging out.These kind of things also could have easily happenned in mullavaikal and the truth should be out there for everyone to see.God would have seen it but we haven’t.So according to your way of thinking, no business now, so fine kill the dogs because business is a moneymaking machine where you got to ruthlessly make decisions with your head than your heart to be sucessfull.

    Whenever you create pain and suffering for any living creature in this world you have to be held accountable.No exceptions.

  85. How about tamils who did not give money to LTTE blaming Srilankan Govt for the death of innocents?

  86. Oh ! what a wonderful savior of tamils!

    Get real pal what has he done to help the victims of war in SL or even the refugees in TN?

    The gullible fools!

  87. Oh Yes ! ‘by hook or by crook’ is your motto.

    unceasing waves to keep your bank accounts rolling!

  88. Now EU scrapped the GSP+. What else can they do?

    Can’t u c USA is using the SL issue to cover up their own war crimes? Tamil diaspora as usual have become gullible. They will continue drool at the feet of the west until they find a more profitable pastime.

  89. Yes another wise man at last.

    Can’t these eelam dreamers understand that money talks. The money & wealth accumulated by western LTTE coffers are at work. Yes Vaiko is been given a free trip & lodging. It must be pure luxery than TN politics for him. What gullible fools are the tamil diaspora.

    I am ashamed that Fr. Emmanual continue to where his priestly robes. He should not continue in his duplicity of supporting a violent armed group in the past. LTTE committed crimes against all ethnicities in SL and he justified them then & now. How can he still where the robe? Its a disgrace to all of us Christians.

  90. Please let me know if you live in Sri lanka or else where before I post my comment to your answer Mr. Ragu.

  91. Gavin,

    Don’t go over board like the gullible Tamil diaspora. Now Sri Lanka had become a very strategically important destination.

    let all the world talk about it. The USA wants it war crimes to be in the shadow & highlight the SL war cries.
    When the world is playing games they first use pawns.

  92. 1.Anonymous says: June 1, 2011 at 5:23 pm …………….

    Israelis are not in SL to help SL. Israel is a country which always helps themselves. Do you know that around 1990 they sold arms to LTTE as well as GOSL. There is a book written by a Ex-Mosaid agent who travelled to Jaffna to see VP. Israelis are there to help USA in intelligence gathering.

  93. Please stop these insults to Theravada Buddhism. What has buddism got to do with this article of any other matter?

    When will your sarcasm end towards Sri lankan sinhalese & buddhists?

    Few of TN indians have a perversion towards this & it has become obvious now.

  94. its a private seminar organised by European United Left/Nordic Green Left & Global tamil forum led by Judas S.J.Emmanuel in a private room in the Brussel’s parliament.

    So some good home work done. This gives a greater understanding to how the GTF is spending the money for their ‘project Eelam’.

    Just one question Sir ,

    how can the hand of God save those afflicted? unless the afflicted turn to GOD.

  95. vaiko is not a joker he is the great leader. please don’t toled the this type of commands. this is not good.i am also like seeman but vaiko is the my first choice.

    vaiko with seeman = it will be take short time to tamil ealam

    vaiko without seeman = it will be take little bit long time

    dear brother we can’t achive tamil ealam without VAIKO it is true.

    vaiko is the proffesser seeman is the teacher. both or important in our life.

  96. hahahaha
    How much you made before the LTTE was destroyed? Now you have no extra income because no LTTE! Cry man!

  97. Sri Lankan Tamils (majority) descended from Oriyans and Malayalees and Sinhalese.

    We have nothing with these TELUGU creatures. But we still like Silk Smita and Bhanumati!

    Your Tamil Nadu has nothing with the Tamils of Sri Lanka. We dont chase sister’s daughter like the people in Tamil Nadu!

    The Tamil Nadu guys know Sri Lanka through rogue smugglers only. You guys better shutup and leave SL people alone to decide what ever they want!

  98. All the people you mentioned made money and gone! Now Mahinda has to provide everything to Tamils of Sri Lanka!

  99. Vai Ko was kicked out by all TN political parties. Malayalee Seemaan too! Now EELAM or LTTE is not a CAPITAL in Tamil Nadu. Only the tamils who made dollars in the WEST through EELAM and Tigers, cry for this VaiKo who is now a legless frog!

  100. Good points Gavin. There is definitely an international balance of power taking place over treatment of Sri Lanka. It is a shame however that the average Sri Lanka is made to pay for international politics. The Tamils and Sinhalese in the majority of Sri Lanka get along quit well. It is a few that make the whole situation look far worse than it is, the most vociferous about the whole situation being those who have likely never stepped foot in the country. I am glad that the real world is not nearly as bad as these Elam enthusiast who obviously have never thought of doing positive things to make the Sri Lanka Tamil situation better than they think it is now. Their answer like that of the dead LTTE leaders is only to stir up trouble and create chaos. If your not part of the solution your part of the problem my friends,

  101. My prayers are with your prayers Harry. I sense some rational thinking coming out of this discussion. But I would not place too much trust in the TNA either, they are playing both sides for their own petty reasons, not for the entire Tamil community in Sri Lanka.

  102. How Sl won the war according to Gotabaya Managing India means Bribing Karunanithy,and charm Kanimoli&bribe congress party.And now basting about this!!!!

  103. Hi Mahesh, is this true? Were the original sinners homosexuals? Manju is an “educated” Tamil doctor so when a person of his class says monks are homosexuals I would say they really must be fags! Don’t you think so? The only problem I have is how can a bunch submissive fags be rabidly aggressive?

  104. Sjoseph,

    This is the nature of politicians of Tamilnadu.
    I am afraid the relevant photos not copied.
    If you good to give your e-mail address I could forward these photos.

    My question is why as an Indian why you are not utilizing your strength and capabilities start a fruitful program to reveal this person rather than trying to advocating to us.

  107. no/// the Israelis are here to explore the potential in Mango and potato farming.

    I wonder what mango & potato really stands for in their code? Tamils & sinhalese or indians & chinese.

  108. You parasites seem to flourish and grow in the warmth of foreign a*seholes. So sad buddy… so sad. Always ‘hope’ to outsource your struggle!

    Proud Sri Lankans know that. Also we know that you, living outside Sri Lanka have ‘big plans’ for the great Tamil Sri Lankans yearning to live in harmony with others in Sri Lanka, shedding CROCODILE TEARS!

    We also know that you Tamil Terrorist Diaspora planted that fat puppet Velu, and named him the greatest freedom fighter… We know that LTTE was just a label.

    So keep daydreaming in foreign cesspits… That’s exactly what we wanted you to do for until end of the world.

  109. Being aware of the Sri Lankan situation I made it a point to attend this “hearing”. frankly I was disappointed nay disgusted.
    The gentleman called Vaiko from India was a disaster. A real buffoon.He wanted the departed souls of dead LTTE fighters to resume the war

    Two others from a Tamil party in Sri Lanka -Varada &Gaje -were virtual imbeciles.Had no idea what they were saying

    Of about 150 attendees about 120 were Tamils. Only 6 EP members

    What a waste.what a bogus show!

  110. You idiot! I’m sorry I have to use this…

    Why the hell do you think I am from Tamil Nadu? You make assumptions that is your problem. That is a kind of sickness.

    Malayalees are Sinhalese?

    In fact Sri Lankan Tamils are the decendants of Malayalees & Telugus. Jaffna Tamils may not accept it, but as a Jaffna Tamil I would say it is the truth. One more thing these malayllese and Telugus (and other Dravidians) were at one time Tamils and vise versa.

    Look at the Tamil Jaffna Tamils speak. You will know the truth. By the way are you really a Tamil? You don’t sound like one!

    Sinhalese are the mixture of everything.

    Don’t waste your time and others in a decent blog like this.

  111. “—Making israel our friend will be at the expense of many other friends we are having at the moment—”

    You are not referring to the Diaspora and their EU buddies who right now, are holding a talk fest to map out how to open,

    Fresh water Fisheries, Prawn Farms,Vineyards and ,Holiday Resorts,to help their displaced and discarded brethren in the North to earn a quid and have a life???

  114. http://print.dailymirror.lk/opinion1/45715.html
    It appears that the EU Parliament has now become wiser and realized what frauds the LTTE Diaspora are. Quoting the CDN, “the European parliament on 13th May 2011 defeated an attempt to seek the immediate establishment of an international justice mechanism on Sri Lanka during an urgent debate called by the Socialist Green Parties at the Strasbourg Plenary Sessions, to draw attention to the so called UN Panel report, on accountability issues in Sri LankaHowever, the remarks made about the Sri Lankan judiciary was baseless and unwarranted.

    Geoffrey Van Orden heading a group in the EU Parliament said, “we regret that we are having this debate today. I suspect that it has been prompted by extremist elements in the Tamil diaspora – the same people who have helped to sustain the LTTE terrorist campaign over many years, through political activities and funding, often from the proceeds of crime. Instead of trying to bring together the peoples of Sri Lanka, there are those that seek to continue a campaign of hatred and division. They see this Darusman report as a weapon in this campaign and just want to put the SL government in the dock. This approach is malicious and counter productive.”

    He further said, “let us do all we can to support the govt of SL, instead of attacking them.” He urged the EU parliament to remain vigilant concerning those that seek to re-ignite the embers of LTTE terrorism. “I call on the EU and European govts to be more active in dealing with extremists in our midst,” he added. This position was confirmed by the German MEP, Thomas Mann.

    Representing the European Conservatives and Reformists the MEP for UK, Dr Charles Tannoch said, “the report is a far cry from the reality and was heavy on criticism but light in substance.” This appears to be a direct hit on the intellectual capacity of the mediocre former Attorney General Marzuki Darusman, and also a hit on the other 2 panelists, Yasmin Sooka of South Africa and Steven Ratner of the USA……

  115. Telugu componant is not visible much in Jaffna except few in Vadamarachchi!

    Jaffna Kingdom had the Royal Name of Malayala King RAJASEKARAN!

    But the majority soldiers came and settled from Orissa. Tamil Language was introduced by the DUTCH missionaries during the rule of their Dutch East India Company head quartered in Madras(Chennai).

    Refugee:
    You are a fool and dont know anything about your damn Dravida! Dravida is an invention of WHITES who called the South Indians as LEMUR (Half man and half monkey). But shameless Tamils cries about LEMURIA without knowing the real meaning!

    Telugu, Malayala and Kannada refused to join the useless DRAVIDA movements because they know the FACTS. Only Tamil fools are still hang on to that stupid DRAVIDA to fool the Tamils!

  116. shankar says: June 1, 2011 at 9:41 pm Everything in life is accountable. 
    ———————————————————————————————

    Has George bush being made accountable for billions of $ lost and putting USA at the brink of bankruptcy for indulging in the Iraq war? Has dick Cheney ever will be made accountable for Halliburton’s money laundering that has taken place in Iraq? Has bush being ever asked even the questioned why the very corrupt Enron supported him and when he got elected the second time, he deregulated the power industry in USA so that these crooks could swindle billions of $? Has the billions Mr. maldorf robbed being accounted and returned to their rightful owners? Finally 2 million innocent people killed or maimed in Japan after atomic bomb…has USA ever being held accountable? Get real mate. We don’t need rhetoric and moral high ground. They don’t exit any longer except in some silly people’s imagination. The reality is Tamils MUST work for a better FUTURE. War is over. If they want another, they will get that one also, no problems

  117. gavin

    Accountability and punishment are 2 different things. Accountability is pinning responsibility on a person for something that has happenned.Punishment is the next step if you wnat to do so. In the case of george bush he has been held acccountable.Everyone knows that he si responsible for the sorry mess in iraq. We are unable to punish him for that by imprisonment etc because he was the president of the USA.he got a punishment of sorts by the voters of the USA that kicked out the republican party,but direct punishment is impossible when a person is too powerful. That does not apply to the rajapakshes,though they might think so.

    AS for the rajapakshes,i have mentioned before a truth and reconciliation commision is the best for all,in the lines of what desmond tutu organized in south africa. The blacks and whites have reconciled and moved on now with everyone held accountable for their actions,but nobody punished.

    As for your contention that tamils must work for a better future,i agree. That is why some are asking for seperation, some for a political solution and some for better facilities.

    Only shortsighted characters like you believe in another war to sort out this problem.The military aspect is over and the political one has started. If you look at east timor and kosovo you will see what i mean. What did their military do compared to the LTTE?They only highlighted the problem to the world which lays the foundation for seperation,while the LTTE not only did that but nearly succeeded with only the military option,but that would have not been in the geopolitical interest of other powers who want to bring srilanka under their influence. That is why they helped to eliminate the LTTE.You can’t try to go it alone here as prabha tried to do. It is only with them hand in hand you can march forward towards your objectives so that they will be always like an umbrella on top of you and control you.

  118. I FEEL SORRY FOR THE WESTERN TAMILS WHO CONTRIBUTE DOLLARS/POUNDS ETC TO LTTE WILLINGLY OR UNWILLINGLY.THEIR HARD EARNED MONEY IS WASTED ON THESE TAMILNADU JOKERS.THESE JOKERS FLY FROM ONE WESTERN CAPITAL OTHER AND ENJOY ALL THE GOOD THINGS IN WEST AT THESE WESTERN TAMILS EXPENSES.THEY HAVE TAKEN THESE DIASPORA TAMILS FOR A RIDE.BEST EAMPLE IS SEEMAN.HE IS ENJOYING LIFE WITH A MAHAWEER WIDOW.HE HAS SPENT MONEY LAVISHLY TO TAKE HER OUT OF SRI LANKA AND TO KEEP HER IN A SECRET HOUSE IN TAMILNADU.IS THIS THE HER DEAD MAHAVEER HUSBAND’S WISH?
    ANYWAY DIASPORA TAMILS ARE PAYING FOR THESE PLAYBOYS TO ABUSE MAHAVEER WIDOWS.
    I DO NOT KNOW WAIKO ALSO HAS A SECRET HOUSE LIKE THAT TO KEEP MAHAVEER WIDOWS.

    WHY THEY CAN SPEND THIS MONEY TO UPLIFT THE LIVES OF RELATIVES IN JAFFNA ,VANNI?

  119. shankar :—–
    I did not talk about punishment. You are trying to differentiate between accountability and punishment. I am saying many people greater than MR and the crowd has never being held accountable, meaning they have not being named even as responsible for a particular act leaving out whether they were the government of USA or the president. Therefore why try to haul MR over the coals? You or the screaming Tamils are trying to set an unrealistic impractical norm which is unworkable in the present context of things.
    Then you say “direct punishment is impossible when a person is too powerful but that does not apply to Rajapakse’s” why not? Why the differential?

    Yes I agree with you that the truth and reconciliation model of south Africa, in SL adopted would be quite in order but such a thing cannot be implemented in SL because the perpetrators will never kiss and ask for forgiveness!! Our society works differently.

    Tamils working for a better future in SL should not ask for separation which is very contentious. They should work in the present system because if Indian Tamils don’t agitate, the ones in Colombo and living with Singhalese in many other area’s don’t, plus the growth rate in north and east are the biggest currently in SL, what more do they want? But I know many Tamils silently liking their wounds for the death of VP at the hands of the Singhalese and this they will not forgive for a long time. This is what I want them to forget and work with the Singhalese.

    I don’t believe war is the solution but if Tamils don’t forget and are unforgiving, they will retain hatred in their minds which can create issues for SL. This is why I say Singhalese should be prepared for war in such a situation if it comes to that. Singhalese should never ever hereafter drop their guard.
    For I believe VP was misled by the rhetoric of the Federal Party and other high cast tails prior to his taking arms and a similar situation can always arise if Tamils remain unforgiving.

    I never believed in a military solution but it was the Tamils who took to arms and it was the LTTE which was supported by majority Tamils who formed the world’s most ruthless murder squad. Successive Sinhala PM’s tried to sort the matter in vain and even Rajiv was convinced that there will be no peace with VP. Finally when the situation got clearer, Singhalese realized that murder has to be met with murder and nothing else.

    Mind you it is not only the Tamils living in SL below the poverty line there are many many more Singhalese toughing it out. Who speaks for them and their rights? No Diaspora, no EU, no USA or UK for them. Recently a poor Singhalese boy was killed at FTZ by police action. Hell would have broken loose if it was a Tamil!! therfore why doesnt the tamils stop being serial agitators and get on with life?

  120. please understand. The war is over. It caused so much of human misery & lost so many innocent lives as collateral damage. Also both the LTTE & SL armed forces retaliated t the civilians.

    All of us have to accept that the war was futile. The TTD wants turmoil & do not want the reconciliation taking place. As they yet to give up eelam.

    However MR also have to be blamed for dragging & mishandling the political issues in the N & E, also now in the south. People of all races axpected him to act wisely and like a statesman. I regret to say that he has failed. Especially the way he handled the UNSG panel report & the external affairs. What he did brought more trouble to Sri Lanka.

    Look at the way GOSL is handling FTZ & higher education.
    MR have nothing to lose by doing the right thing. He can bring the communities together. Get away with all the corruption that were submerged by the war. This is what the people expected from him. Now he had failed & losing trust of the people. Now it is the tie to re think & change the hard core stands. As many are losing hope in this regime now.

    only way to put things right is to make right decisions and get wise advice from an old wise owl…

    It is not me trying to differentiate between accountability and punishment as you claim,it is different according to the english vocabulary.You can always say sorry and be accountable if you do it with your heart.
    You may be right that Bush and blair have not been held accountable.I have not seen them regret the civilian casualties in iraq. At least they are not like the rajapakshes saying it is zero.Also they allowed transparency during the war,while the rajapakshes completely blacked out the news coverage.Also the rajapakshes keep on blocking any investigations into what happenned whereas these two did not do that.Rajapakshes have even killed so many journalists and assaulted and threatened so many.

    It is difficult to make people like bush and blair even accountable because it is a lopsided world with the power still tilted heavily towards the west.We have to be patient.Now the centrepoint of global power is slowly but surely shifting towards asia.One day who knows,even in their old age like pinochet of chile they may be held accountable.

    I said direct punishment is impossible for powerful people,but the rajapakshs don’t fall into that category. You are asking why,just look at the globe and see how insignificant they are.Even the powerful could come a cropper like dominic strauz khan.

    I believe in a political solution for the tamils,which is a midpoint between the three alternatives seperation,political solution,better facilities.I think it was the Lord Bhuddha who said to follow the middle path. In otherwords not to go to extremes.

    As for your contention that tamils will retain hatred in their minds,again Lord bhuddha gave the answer to that by stating that hatred can be conquered only with love,not with more hatred. It makes sense to me practically because we can put out a fire only with something that is opposite,coolwater,not go and pour more inflammable liquids on it.The hatred you refer to may not be due to prabhaharans demise,because he was fast losing his popularity with the people due to his autocratic nature,but probably due to the way the war was conducted and the manner in which the tamils have been treated after the war ended.

  122. Shanker:-

    In the English vocabulary there is a difference between accountability and punishment no doubt but this was not within the context of our present discussion. I never argued about the differentiation. None of these people like Bush, Maldorf etc has ever been made accountable and the argument you are putting forward without much logic in my opinion that that is different in MR’s case for me sounds pretty hollow. Action on Pinochet and Strauz Khan are not common occurrences. It is certainly not the norm.

    I too believe in a political solution for the Tamils but I believe it will not be achieved because of militant Tamils waging a war of words and actions against the GOSL. For reconciliation, there must be goodwill and good relations and that is not there. Therefore the Singhalese must be ready for war and I support MR’s governments army training of Uni students.

    Hatred in the Tamils mind is a long drawn affaire. Although some may have not supported LTTE, their sympathies lied with LTTE and when they were destroyed, their dream Elam ended. Although they may have hated LTTE, they loved Elam and as long as LTTE delivered that, they would have been happy. In my view, Tamils will not forgive MR and the Singhalese although in SL, Tamils will not vent their feelings. I know this by association and certain things I observe. I don’t agree with you that Tamil’s anger is because of the way GOSL behaved during the last days of the war.

    As long as there is unreasonable agitation by the Tamils, especially those abroad and living in comfort, a peaceful solution will be far away. Buddha’s teachings you have quoted is right but they are not followed by either party. So what’s the point?

  123. It was not the white man but the Indian and Chinaman that gave the elbow in 2009. We never trusted the Indian or Chinaman, but now you do, so get ready for the rotten string.

  124. “Wake up Tamils ! Accept the reality and not live in dreams which you can never materialize.”

    An independent India was a dream for hundreds of years with hundreds of Kings, revolutionaries and freedom fighters ending up loosers. Our dream has only lived for 60 years…..give it some time….

  125. When was Karuna or Pillayan “elected” to be representatives? They were “posted” by Rajapaksa, another word for “puppet”. It looks like it is you that needs to learn about democracy.

  126. Just a few small comments on parts of the above rubbish:

    “You are a fool and dont know anything about your damn Dravida! Dravida is an invention of WHITES who called the South Indians as LEMUR (Half man and half monkey). But shameless Tamils cries about LEMURIA without knowing the real meaning!”

    The word “Dravida” is a Sanskrit word used as far back as the 8th century by the Indian philosopher Shankaracharya to refer to the region of South India. This is common knowledge to even a basic student of South Indian history. The rest of the “facts” in M Siva’s post need to therefore be seen in that light – rubbish.

    “Tamil Language was introduced by the DUTCH missionaries during the rule of their Dutch East India Company head quartered in Madras(Chennai).”

    There are archaelogical sites in the North-East of Sri-Lanka that contain tamil inscriptions that date far before the arrival of the Dutch. Moreover, every language in the world that has “migrated” has subsequently been bastardized or deteriorated to certain extent. The Tamil used in Sri-Lanka is more pure than that used in most parts of TN – that is impossible if it was brought over by missionaries.

  127. “Sri Lankan Tamils (majority) descended from Oriyans and Malayalees and Sinhalese.”

    “We dont chase sister’s daughter like the people in Tamil Nadu!”

    You do know that the Malayalees chase the sister’s daughter too don’t you?

  129. These tamilnadu Jokers such as Viko,Seeman etc are back-boneless people.The Northern Indian are treating tamilnadu tamils as an Inferior lot openly.I have worked with many indians and i have seen this very clearly.The indians from other parts of India are never mix themselves with tamilnadu tamils.
    There is no a single tamil letter in indian pass ports and any other government documents.but tamilnadu tamils want to fight for the place for a tamil language in sri lanka never complain about all the insults they get in india.
    they are boneless to talk about discrimination in india and fight for separate tamilnadu in india.

  132. Rajah,

    I just read your comment. FYI, Malayalees don’t chase sister’s daughter. In fact, this is one teaser they routinely come up with when they choose to ridicule the tamils (pandi). It’s funny how people who have no real knowledge of the southern states are commenting on them. Btw, the only other south indian group that chases sister’s daughter is the telugus. It’s considered a taboo amongst mallus and not normally practiced among kannadigas. It’s a taboo in entire north india, western india and eastern india.
