Dayan Calls Gota-BBS Story ‘A Spin’, Insists Gota Is A Changed Man Since 2015

In response to our yesterday story “Dayan Reveals Gota’s Post-Conflict Homeland Security Plan; Gota And Israel Behind BBS’ Anti-Muslim Hate Crimes” Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka has sent the clarification below:

Dear Uvindu, I read the report and listened once again to the video. I do not retract one word or comma of what I said at the time. However, there is no statement in either my speech or the video which says that “Gotabhaya is behind the BBS” or is in any way “responsible for the BBS”! That’s a tendentious interpretation, or, to put it more simply, spin. I criticized Gotabhaya for his stand on the BBS and his presence and speech on the occasion. I also exposed the Zionist influence in postwar Sri Lanka (especially the state), attacked its unjust and counterproductive character, criticized those in power who were fellow travelers (including Gotabhaya at that time) and exposed a congruence or parallelism in the several strands of Islamophobia that were raising their ugly head.

Your (revived) report also proves that at a time when no one — including today’s Yahapalana heroes–had the guts to criticize Gotabhaya who was at the zenith of his power, openly and on the record, I did so.

It is precisely as someone with those credentials and that legitimacy that I openly advocate that Gotabhaya be our next executive President. At the time that Gotabhaya was very much part of the solution (during wartime) I supported him, even when I dissented — and we clashed sharply–on Gaza. Then, when he became part of the problem (postwar) I criticized him. Now when he is the last best hope I see to overcome this utter degeneration and decadence under the Ranil-CBK government, I support him. 

Let me go further: I think Gota has changed considerably for the better since 2015, but even if he hasn’t, he is ten thousand times preferable to Ranil and his gang of traitors who want to sell out the North and East and the country’s economy as a whole to India and especially the Southern Indian states, while selling our strategic national assets to any and every country and privatizing the state.

This is the worst, most dangerous, most unconscionable government I have seen in my country in my lifetime. Whatever their past and present errors, only Mahinda as Prime Minister and Gota as President can get us out of this deep, stinking pit, and put us back on track. 

Editor’s note: We acknowledge that Dayan never specifically utters the words “Gotabhaya is behind the BBS”. Similarly, although he insists that he “had the guts to criticise Gotabaya”, he does not not do so by name. Instead he couched it with innuendo. He says “a top official” ” the brother ” etc. he doesn’t even name Gnanasara; instead he uses the term“අඥාණ නිස්සාර පුද්ගලයෙක්” (a man called Agnana Nissara). In that vein, yes, he does not specifically use the name of Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

“Recently a man called Agnana Nissara අඥාණ නිස්සාර පුද්ගලයෙක් , said ‘if Rauff Hakeem tries to make Maligawatta a Gaza, we are ready to be an Israel’.  I have no intention of defending Rauff Hakeem’s politics; nevertheless it is difficult to see these things as accidents. Prior to that (Gnanasara’s statement), ‘the High Official’ went for an opening, it is not the picture taken that is important, but the speech he made there. He said that no one should be afraid (of the BBS), and that we should support its work and that what they do is important work.” Jayatilleka says.

Our story said, ‘Gota And Israel Behind BBS’. Dayan does not deny the other part which also includes the statement that ‘Israel Is Behind BBS’. In his speech he said these anti-muslim sentiments started after “the top defence official” accepted the Israeli government’s Post-Conflict Homeland Security plan.

To any rational reader with a basic understanding of the Sinhalese language and innuendo, the reference must be clear. We invite our readers to watch the video below and decide for themselves if Gotabaya was the reason for the rise of extremism among the majority:

    Dayan;s woes must be coming from the [Edited out], He is one of the biggest Ranil haters I have seen and everything is better than Ranil for him. Probably Hitler and Prabhaharan too, Wish someone would give him the same treatment he got during Gamini Dissanayake’s funeral

      CT Editor———–“We invite our readers to watch the video below and decide for themselves if Gotabaya was the reason for the rise of extremism among the majority”——————————

      Gotabaya may be the reason for the rise of extremism (in this context euphemism for public racism ) in recent years however public racism was first openly expressed by Anagarika Dharmapala and accepted by many as a fact of life. Since then the state absorbed racism as its basic tenets. ———–The fault line in the nation building process. It is upto the majoritarians to determine whether turn a blind eye, do nothing, pretend business as usual, and let the destruction go undisturbed. —————————————————– Racism is well entrenched in the psyche of stupid people. ————— Gotabaya may not a racist after all, he was instrumental in killing large number of people Tamils as well as Sinhalese. The parallel was VP who killed people of all origins. Both were practicing psychopaths, one is gone one is active. ——— If he truly believes in Gota Dayan must take this man to a team of psychoanalyst for a profiling. He even wanted to hang Sarath Fonseka. …………. Dayan must help him to rehabilitate in a special prison cell fit for “Hannibal the Cannibal”. Staying in the same cell voluntarily for the rest of his life may be a life long service to the people. His experience with psychopathic war criminal could form the basis of new studies, useful to humanity. If Dayan is reluctant we should persuade Jim Softy the dimwit and HLD M to join him.

        Dearest Native Vedda. (wie geht es Dir denn so ?- Grtz from Switzerland)

        I could not agree with you more Mr.. Thank you. Not just JIM SOFTY , HLD or others, there are bunch living in CT platoform with the same psyche.

        Yes, I too suggest DJ to support GOTA to rehab that way, as well demonstrated by the horror film The silence of the lambs “https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Silence_of_the_Lambs_(film)”

            Great, You and few others comments are the best. Thanks hope you too are keeping well. That is one of the good reasons me to come and peep in here. Else, I have given up my hopes on the torn nation.

            I cant even think as to why some idiots are forced to see it the way DJ has been. Sirasa sender has given him 2 chances monthly while others too seem what the bugger has been uttering are the facts. But we perfectly know that are far from even hearsays.

            What do you think, should have gone wrong with his so called academic achievements ? Why the man makes him the stupidiest today ?

            Do you Mr Native Vthink his students at COLOMBO Uni too may have been infected by DJ syndrom ?
            Why the man seems to have no the least basic human nature of an academic ?

        “Contrary to popular belief, psychopaths are not considered to be mentally ill. The fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), released by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) in 2013, lists psychopathy under the heading of Antisocial Personality Disorders (ASPD).

        Key traits of the psychopath include:
        •A disregard for laws and social mores
        •A disregard for the rights of others
        •A failure to feel remorse or guilt
        •A tendency to display violent behavior “

        “Can psychopathy be cured? According to mental health experts, the short answer to this question is no. Dr. Nigel Blackwood, a leading Forensic Psychiatrist at King’s College London, has stated that adult psychopaths can be treated or managed but not cured (4). “

          “”has stated that adult psychopaths can be treated or managed but not cured”” Vicars daughter Theresa May knows better so she won’t part with any more money after ££2 billion went into thin air swallowed by grass roots politicians social worker, artist, acrobats and drug dealers. there is no known drug in the world that can treat it. Psychiatrist don’t manufacture medicine but prescribe them and neither do pharmacist manufacture them but distribute them. the manufacturer (biochemical medicine studies for the manufacture) does not go into depth of the side effects to know the psychotic effect it has on humans- like windows does not study failure but sells and has patch wednesday every month then comes up with a newer version when the money finishes and no more free updates available.. Only cognitive therapy helps.

      Exactly, UNP Mahesh. I am not UNP supporter but I do feel DJ is very biased to JO and in the same time very against RW. How on the earth can come with the suggestion that Gota to be the next leader ….. may well be, the bugger DJ would dream of getting posted to be the next FM representing and making srilanken and another extremist country.
      DJ is highly abusive person in lanken spot light. He stressess as if he could end up with piles (haemorites), as if he is the only person to know it well. It has always been the nature of this particular devious man. Malacy and Jealousy against RW and CBK are on his top of agenda, no matter, the nation would end up with all splits.

      Besides, Dayan s statements remain inconsistent. If any rational readers would please study the articles uploaded on to CT forums alone, you would see it iclearly, DJ is totally against CBK, RW no matter what it is.

      The man behind racist, violent BBS, fascist, Zionist puppet with symptoms of chronic paranoia should be SL’s next President? What the heck is wrong with you DJ? His brother who ran SL like a stinking family business, until getting kicked out by the people should return as our next PM? Meanwhile, the nation has 20 million people. Many dominate the world in their areas of expertise. NASA alone has 100+ employees of SL origin. Why on earth do we need members of an uneducated, criminal clan evicted by the people back in corridors of power? DJ, please take a break. We will do the executive search & recruitment for governance of our country. Cheers! PS: BTW, Gota is bound for jail pretty soon for unspeakable crimes.

        I sometimes feel if the boy should have undergone to a surgery lately to have his both ends cross implanted by a surgical failure. DJ is becoming the CLOWN 2017 for the lost island.

          If SPIN DOCTOR would have been living in SAUDI or so, they would rather go for a day light beheading.
          What I want to say by that is, DJ s thoughts are no go. He just make efforts louding until he become as some one said above- a PILEs patient.

          He stresses things as no other.
          Audience is no idiotic.

          This man would go on licking the asses of any indecent leaders for his own survivial. Nowa may be his 4 th wife is making.
          Just tell us where this man has done that good to the country during the last 7 years.
          Just because his speeches made to UNHRC should he be PUT above the altar ?
          Rajapakshe himself called the bugger as a NGO man.
          Remember, .. but the lap dog licked the balls of Rajapkahse in his following meeting.
          So how can we the folks keep the faith on DJ ?
          He is no means gentically similar to his respectable father.
          If his father would have been alive, he would commit suicide not being able to see the misbehaviours of DAYAN SILVA JAYATHILAKA.
          I DOUBT the genetics of Dayan : I really do.

At Diego Garcia there are only 7 defence personnel from US rest are orderlies from the phillipines and Sri lanka. But Diego is about to go back to Mauritius unless India is prepared to back BoJo which is a highly unlikely event. Like BBS, Tiger mouth nigel sounded the bell on immigration and human rights laws that give immigrants the handicap- don’t worry it’s been taken care of in classic je ne sais quoi factor even the german dielectric never accounted for in the englishman.

      Please Uvindu these info can create new form of problems – please be cautious !!!!!!!!!
      Why not you PLEASE make efforts to talk directly with UNIVERSITY DONs in U of Colombo or any other to gather the factful information ? I think it is useless to rely on anything comes out of the cesspit of DJ. We the rational thinkers, feel that you give more place to DJ knowing his profile well. Upto now, he has proved, he is no different to that of Wimal Weerawanse.
      Latter was a street thug/school drop out later turned out to be a politician in the abusive administration of MR.Wimal weerawanse would have no whatsoever factful information when spreading blatant lies to the manner, the innocent easy targets would become part of his fans. It is his unique rascal nature makes it nothing else. People are stupid. They would follow anyone today. They are not at all knowledgeable.
      As is the case with SIRASA too, why you too, place DJ above the altar, continuously believing he could know it better ? Is Dayana Aka SILVA Jayatilaka the only source we have in srilanka in terms of factful information based on lanken external issues?
      I think DJ has shown his NATURE over the past few months alone that he is BITTERLY against RW for some personal vendetta.
      But in the same time, DJ to sit with all low educated, and highly LAW educated but just book worms such as GLP to stand against current regime. If you please recall, the very same man DJ with the same mouth piece uttered ” GLP was the most incompetent Minister of External Affairs” . Today, just to stand against the current GOVT(not a regime) but pleasing Rajakashe criminals, GLP is good enough to DJ. That alone proves to sane people, that DJ s is more pathological.

        He is like a teenager who is passing through early age. Give us good examples where DJ has been CONSISTENT ?

        Samuel Jayaweera —-

        I picked this part of your comment, which is an “absolute lie”.

        Quote: “……..Latter was a street thug/school drop out, later turned out to be a politician in the abusive administration of MR. Wimal weerawanse would have no whatsoever factful information when spreading blatant lies to the manner…..” Unquote:

        Wimal didn’t “later turn out to be a politician” in MR’s administration. That is a big lie. He joined JVP in 1989 and has been in active politics representing people in various political bodies for the last 20 years. —– He was a Member of the Colombo Municipal Council from 1997-1999 and then a Member of the Western Provincial Council from 1999-2000 before he contested for Parliament in 2000 from the Colombo District. Since then, he has been a Member of Parliament.

        Wimal’s views are always supported with facts. You have failed to provide any example with proof to contradict that fact. He is one of the few Parliamentarians who does his homework before speaking in the Parliament. He is regarded as someone who possesses a very rare intuitive ability in politics.

        You are a sociopathic liar who accuses others without any factual information to prove. Practice what you preach, liar.

            I didn’t know about this. It was long time ago, so I had to check. Just glanced, didn’t have the time to go through the whole speech.

            So what? Even Professional Wordsmiths make mistakes. It was a small faux pas on Wimal’s part, not a big deal. May be it was an impromptu speech, may be he has mistaken “Old Amable” of Guy de Maupassant with Ernest Hemingway’s “The Old Man and the Sea”. I don’t think at that time Wimal has written any book. Is this what you are hold against him? LOL.

            Why don’t you ask how many MPP in the Parliament have read those two books? I am sure, only a handful.

            Thank you Old Codger for taking this up.

            This is for Wimal. ” I am impressed about this story, Wimal. This means that you have read, remembered and fascinated with both those World Famous Books “The Old Man and the Sea” and “Old Amable” a long time ago. Reading is my passion too. PS: I saw you have reacted to my “defence mode” talk. I withhold my opinion of the subject due to obvious reasons.

              Simon De Silva —– bitch’s son (You have described yourself very correctly).

              I wish to say few things, although your comment is not worth replying because as is the problem with all other illegitimate idiots, you tend to insult another person’s parents.

              99% of the people in Sri Lanka hail from ordinary families. Wimal is always subject to unfair attacks and insults. If Wimal was like some other rogue politicians hailing from Colombo elite who plunder the country, you never use that word. You insult him because he hails from an ordinary family. You are sick, Silva.

              “When the debate is lost, slander is the tool for losers”. (Quote by Socrates)

              Sri Lanka should be governed by political leaders who hail from ordinary families who feels the heartbeat of 99 per cent of the ordinary population. The corrupt, rogue elite politicians with colonial mindsets should be sent home at the next election.

              About UPFA —–

              There won’t be a UPFA at the next election, therefore your question does not arise. It will be a new Alliance and whether Wimal takes part in it or not is his decision. As was in the end of 2014, many in the JO will leave MR and join whatever new Alliance formed by President Sirisena.

              If the Leftists form a different Alliance led by Wimal and Dinesh, then I may have to alter my opinion and give my full support, as it will mark the much needed turning point in Sri Lankan politics towards a better country to which the majority will vote. It is too early to say anything, as there is no such on the horizon at this moment.

                I agree with SIMON but not with the kind of ILK Champa represents.
                We perfectly know the harm done by Ballige putha Wimal Weerawanse to this nation. The manner the bugger louded calling SIRISENAYOO.. were beyond all ethics and morals. That has nothing to do with him being not part of Elites, but his upbringing. Born idiot, has never been able to learn it … from anyone.
                The manner, he adds his thoughts are based on his lack of informationa about the way westerners think. He has no whatsoever knoweldge about the western culture, but to beelieve, that EU countries are after us.

                Lately, one of the reasearhers from lanken Uni took part in a confrerence about CHRONIC KIDNEY AILMENTS OR at all about the nephrological achievements, there, he shared it on his return, Europeans did not know even where Srilanka is located.
                Very same is what I can endorse about their knowledge, but stupid Weeranses or the like to think that EU or westernimperial powers are after us…. are just no second to the tricky theories to tie the pepole up with the situation. These MR may know well but he abuses NAIVE wimal drama queen to consolidate his powers. That is it.
                I wish Wimal would have been punished by KARAMA for all the communal attacks made by his cesspit sofar. The kind of men belong to Guanthanmbe the kind of prisons.

                  This is the first time I heard “Sirisenayoooo” is a bad word.

                  There are about a 1% still in Sri Lanka whose legs play Mandolin at the sight of Whites and at the mention of EU/Westerners. Forutnately, the rest have backbones, not wagging tails or they are not boot lickers of the West.

                  Wimal has never engaged in communal attacks. He was the first to issue a Statement requesting people to not to fall for religious riot trap and he did the same last year.

                  Karma has a long list of people it has missed. You are one of them, not Wimal. People of your breed, the savages who hail below-humanity-Guantanamo Bay, should live in the West, not in Sri Lanka. I wish the rest of the Guantanamo Bay detainees, less than 50 unofficially, will be freed and join their families soon.

                why do you think when the debate is lost ?

                Wimal is the most abusive person to have betrayed lanken politics Or not ? His fantasies and low level of information makes him the stupidiest person in lanken parliament. Where on earth the kind of men in public domain to have violated immigration and emigration laws to the manner WW has been subjected.
                But all others stay mum as if the kind of crimes may have been minor ones. If the bugger would have been in a country like Spore or Germany, he would never be able to scot free today. That is for sure.

                There are good politicians rose up even if they belong to non-elite groups. That Buddhika Pathirana from Matara is for example a good chap. He has done lot more to this nation than the kin dof men of wimal NATURE: Besides a man who entered to lanken poltics through JVP, but today to beahve the manner any other capitalists would do is beyond my understanding. How come the bugger Wimal to own that much of assets within 10 years ?
                I hate to see the law and order issues remain yet to be acted rigorously.

                  Wimal is not proved guilty by any Courts. He is subject to Political Witch-Hunt due to his popularity among people irrespective of party politics and his unwavering stand to protect the Unitary Country. He is the pillar of strength to our entire nation. He is widely respected as a principled politician. It is pretty obvious you have a personal grudge against him.

                  “Buddhika Pathira has done a lot (more than Wimal, I guess :D) to “the nation”. Oh I am sure, that is why he is NOT rewarded with a Ministerial post.

                  You talk about Law and Order? The Central Bank was robbed in the daylight making entire citizenry pay local loans for 30 years! The best part is, CB has given Rs. 66 billion and BOC and another bank have given Rs. 13 billion to Perpetual Treasuries as loans! They and former Governor plundered the entire economy. All the culprits are scot free. Those are the crimes – pillage and plunder!!!

                    Tell me who is made guilty in lanken prevailing law and order systems ?

                    Even if that Thadjudeen s murder is crystal clear to us all living onthe west that MaRa et all did it in a fine manner. But animal courts have not succeeded to prove it and serving the justice to the victimized family. We perfectly know if this govt did not come to power, they the murderous rajapakahe would not have found it as a murder but still would have been in the mode of ACCIDENT as was declared at the begining. Higest possible crime is murders, but for lanken courts, that are nothing.
                    Not anything else, the curse was shown by recent floods, not having proper law and order in action in this lost island. That is why two disasters killedTHE innocient in the country within 2 months. Why those invisible powers failed to worked on JO and MARA family is my question.
                    Sirlanken airlines now dont send flight to Frankfurt. Nor send they lanken flights to other EU destinations as had been before. The reason is MARA had looted it to the core. The curse should work on the bugger et al… without delay then only we can finally breath in.
                    WW is also highlyresponsible for all the messe to have extended being part of MARA s jara administration.
                    May curse be with them.. and punish them accordingly, THat is my wish.
                    I can imagine how hard torment the mothers whose sons got killed feel it today. The very same should work on Rajapakshe offsprings. Not a revenge, that shold work on them… then only we can even feel that God punishes all equally.

            Oh, please educate me. Wimal spoke of the truth about “Jana Gana Mana”. It was the Hindi version which was adopted in the Indian Parliament.

            Ravindranth Thagore only wrote a “song” in Bengali language. He didn’t write a “National Anthem”. It was the Hindi translation which became the National Anthem.

This original version was what was adopted by the Constituent Assembly as the national anthem. The use of Sanskrit words by Tagore makes it sound like a Hindi song or hymn. To say it was translated into Hindi or the national anthem is the Hindi version of the original song is pure rubbish,” said Tagore expert Sankha Ghosh.
                  “Tagore thought and wrote this landmark song in Bengali just as Bankim Chandra wrote his Vande Mataram in Bengali. Both use Tatsama words and hence they sound like Hindi. Both Hindi and Bengali have been derived from Sanskrit, hence such similarities are expected,” said Tagore scholar and former Visva Bharati faculty Amitrasudan Bhattacharya. ——————Please go away and carry Wimal’s b***s.

                Well, do people in any of those countries including India demand a separate state? A separate state based on ethnicity? A separate state based on the language they speak? The answer is NO. That makes a big difference.

                First a separate National Anthem, then Federal (without the concurrent list), then a separate National Flag (Provincial), then a separate Constitution, then a separate Parliament (Provincial), then Self-Rule, then a separate State – Tamil Eelam, right? We all know where this is leading to. NO. There is no way we allow anyone to divide the country. My country remain as a Unitary State.

                If Wimal has objected in 2011 as you and Native Vedda said, (I didn’t know him at the time), as always he was on the right path. He could see the future. Being a true Patriot, he has a long history of ceaselessly fighting to protect the Unitary State. He is the next, after Mahinda, whom Sinhalese love and respect irrespective of party or colour.

                  The answer is YES. You may not be aware of it, but Kerala, Tamilnadu, and Andhra were one unit called Madras State in 1948.
                  The LINGUISTIC states were carved out of this. The process is still going on with the creation of Telengana from part of AP for LINGUISTIC reasons. This is how enlightened countries behave.

          Champa, you may be one of his condom supporters as I see it now . but I want you to explain us the knowledge of Google Wimal on the followings:
          Knowledge of his western invasions, UNHRC issues etc were all stammered lies,, how Mr Madmaullana was targeted by western allies as they repeated prior to 2015 . If you guys believe what the bugger repeatedly drops – we cant help you there.
          And and. .
          you may have forgotten to add whether or not he is a school drop out… about his overall education ? what kind of income he has at the time, he started his MP position 10 years or so.
          I am telling you… Morroccans I met in Europe were arguing with us repeatedly about the general knoweldge of their sisters. Asked how those sisters could become so intelligent as brothers added, was answered by saying that none of their sisters had the chance to go to school. Meaning they cant read and write right ? Nevertheless those morroccans lied abou ttheir families all along. Their literacy rate is btw 40% or so.
          Likewise, you may bring us all supportive thoughts but according to you,, to prove the other way around about Wimal Buruwanse.- but except that his political life was started in JVP, also by cheating them at that time… .. all others remain as I added above.
          Please check all the bits about him, in the web, the guy is blessed with a tongue no second to that of a reptile so that he can twist anything in favour of his darlings.
          That is it.
          How can anyone who started the political life ended up withhaving built palace like buildings for his own luxuary.
          How the bugger earned those sums, if he had been in the same original mode of JVP ? Can you explain us that please ?
          [Edited out] abused lanken grass eaters for his pocket fillings following the same path of his Rajathuma or not ?

            Everything Wimal said has come true. The best example is the stand taken by UNHRC on Sri Lanka. Even villagers know what UNHRC is, thanks to Wimal. 92% of the population can read/and/write. Unlike in the past, the majority is interested not only in local affairs but global news too. Therefore, they are aware what Wimal says is true. It is you who should come out of your coconut shell roof and listen to people’s opinion on the happenings in Sri Lanka.

            I haven’t forgotten anything. In restricted 300 word rule, I replied to your pain. Wimal left school for JVP without sitting for A/Ls.—– Over 1.2 million students dropout of high school in the US only, EVERY YEAR. There are many reasons such as socio-economic problems, political influence, peer pressure, poor exam results, etc. You have proved that your general knowledge is lot lower than an average. If you are not obsessed with “bits” of other people’s personal lives and all sorts of cheap gossip on the web, reading one or two good books about life will do good to you and the society, both. May be simple books like, “Chicken Soup for the Soul” or “Life’s Lessons”.

            It was JVP who betrayed him.

            Wimal has been an MP for 17 years not 10!. Your Math is poor too. What’s wrong with his house? For you, it may be a “palace”, but for me it is an average house. Sorry about that.

            Starting as a Member of CMC in 1997, he has come a long way solely due to his sheer willpower. You are allowed to be envious of his success.

            Every MP is required to submit his Assets and Liabilities Declaration. Wimal has done that too. You are free to check.

          Weerawansa has been involved in numerous controversies during his career. In 2006 he was accused of sexually harassing a 24-year-old female employee of the state-owned Lake House. On 8 July 2010 Weerawansa began a hunger strike outside the United Nations office in Colombo to protest against the appointment of the Panel of Experts on Accountability in Sri Lanka by the Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon. Despite promising to “fast-unto-death” Weerawansa’s hunger strike only lasted until 10 July 2010 and was seen as a publicity stunt. In March 2012 Weerawansa called for Sri Lankans to boycott American products such as Coca-Cola, Pepsi, KFC, McDonald’s, Google and Gmail as a protest against the US government sponsoring a resolution on Sri Lanka at the United Nations Human Rights Council.

            Oh, yeah this…. Anybody can accuse anyone for sexual harrassement, even verbally, even in some countries if you stare at a female it is regarded as sexual harrassment. Accusing is NOT proof that anyone or your opponent is guilty of such offence. Sri Lankan politics is dirty. When they want to attack another politician, it is common in twisting and turning incidents. You are good in porking garbage and presenting unsubstantiated accuasations for other’s information at your whims and fancies. I am not interested at all and whatever you say have no bearing in what people think about him.

            His “fast-unto-death” ended when the UN agreed to look into the Report again and make changes if necessary.

            Wimal lost his mother too, because his mother was hospitalized at the second day of his “fast-unto-death” and by the time he ended it, she had been passed away.

            OMG.. My head is reeling by replying to so many. I am going to take a break. My reply to rest of the comments, if any, about Wimal, is “Edited Out”. Love you Wimal. Thank you CT.

            See, I saw DJ’s comment. He says “We need Gota to clean roads…”. What an insult. Was it really DJ who posted that childish comment? I really wanted to post a reply. May be later.

          you perfectly know average mind set back in SL are grass eaters. If the would be asked to go after Hakgediya or Giraya assuming they would be blessed, they would do without checking it twice.
          It is believed over 90% of the population are after ASTRO and SOCERY predictions than anything else. They dont care their titles, but after lecturing at Unis they join those who go after Hakgediya or Sansui or th elike tricks being played by some abusive men in the society. Their adverts are plentily avaialble in daily news papers and even on TV senders such as swarnawahini, dherana and abusive Hiru.

          What I am going to tell you is – in a nation whose majority are like that, yours can only be identified as part of them. That is why You guys go after WIMAL the drama queen, whose political existens would not NEVER have been, if he lived in the west.

          Stupid politicians = stupid people s mirror image.
          So Wimal buruwa s sinhala terms polarize the nation, since his fans are no differnt to his aunty was seen in a YOUTUBE attacking premier in all filthy loads. But decent RW or his men would not even look at them.
          I think this rascal culture in the country was improved by MR uncultured rascal politics.
          The damage MR and their men done to the country is BEYOND any repair, since masses in the country are uncivlilzed and poorly educated people.
          Even university degree holders would nto see twice before using their mouthpieces when it comes to talk about anything.
          Today, everything is seen fine, even if Rajapakshe would have gone on raping any rural corners.

      I suppose only good old Wittgenstein can suss out Dayan’s intellectual subtleties. …………………. For Dayan, “Meaning is an activity, and his language is his world. Therefore, there can never be such a thing as ‘objective’ or ‘transcendent’ meaning, because meaning can never be abstracted from a given context.” His context is confined to Mahinda, Gota and a position for himself. …………… Here’s the piece. I don’t get the head or tail of it but some of you guys will be able to grasp it. …………………………………… ” This is such a subtle proposition that it takes a particular bend of the mind to grasp it. It is also an understanding that is quite different in character from what we might conventionally consider to be knowledge or insight.
      The peculiar genius of Wittgenstein was that he was able to consider meaning not as something abstracted from human behaviour, but as something deeply enmeshed within any given social context. In other words, the languages and the value systems we adhere to are lively expressions of the nature and development of a given human community, and by no means exist transcendent of the context in which they are used.
      We assume that we have certain inherent objectives and we use language as a kind of abstract tool with which to fulfil these objectives. What Wittgenstein realised is that our behaviour and language coalesce in such a way that the patterns of our language are what dictate the nature of our experience. The very way that we interact with, and react to, the world and each other on an immediate and visceral level is completely dependent upon the meaning, usage, structure, and grammar of the language in which we think and communicate. In other words, meaning is an activity, and our language is our world. As Wittgenstein himself put it,
      “What we call ‘instructions’, for example, or ‘orders’, ‘questions’, ‘answer’, ‘describing’ etc. is all bound up with very specific human actions and an order is only distinguishable as an order by means of the circumstances accompanying it.”
      Therefore, there can never be such a thing as ‘objective’ or ‘transcendent’ meaning, because meaning can never be abstracted from a given context.”

      The most famous spin doctor calls it ‘A Spin’ after being exposed. Thanks CT for exposing this chameleon. What he said then about Gota and what he is saying now about Gota are contradictory.

      Gota is not a fool, he knows very well who Dayan is. Gota knows when, where, and how to use this educated fool and then, when to discard him like a used condom.

      The Truth of the matter is that Dayan hates Ranil only becuase he is one of those who worked tirelessly with Chandrika, Sirisena, Sampanthan, & Rauf Hakeem to get rid of Mahinda familiy, particularly Gotapaya from the power. Dayn is one of those who defended the Mahinda regime’s war crimes, human rights violation and massacre of Tamils and continued anti Tamil and aniti Muslim stands along with BBS.

    Dayan is correct in his speech: Gaza is blocked by land/sea/air, etc. Just one border crossing into Israel. However, he does not mention the cooperation of Egypt in this endeavor. There is a border crossing into Egypt that is off limits to Palestinians. If Egypt opened this border crossing, the siege would end overnight. The underground tunnels that Hamas built to smuggle goods from Egypt into Gaza were flooded by the Egyptians after Islamic militants attacked Egyptian soldiers in the Sinai. In exchange for cooperation with Israel, Egypt is paid a tidy sum by the US. So while the Palestinians are in an unfortunate position, it is not just Jews who are profiting. The GCC are buying weapons from Israel and Egypt is getting a big paycheck from the US.

      The openness of the Sunnis toward Israel is a big victory for Israel. Saudi Arabia and Israel share common enemies, Iran, ISIS, Hamas, Hezbollah, Mulslim Brotherhood whose combined force could be deadly to Saudi Arabia, huge destruction to Israel. Main reason Qatar’s isolation, is its ties with their enemies. It is radical Saudi Arabia that has been creating more issues in the region than Israel for decades to safe-guard its Al Saud Dynasty. Hopefully with Israeli relationship they are inviting Arab Spring to their homeland. Saudi even played a major role in ousting democratically elected Egypt’s president (from MB) to replace with its puppet who dances to Saudi tunes and allows Wahabbi madrasas through out Egypt.

    What? “The best hope is Gotabhaya/Mahinda as the PM/(and/Basil/Namal)…” ? NO, not again. If they come back to power, there will be post-election riots/and/bloodbath to take revenge. We fortunately managed to get out of “attempted riots” last week. The thought is terrifying. This has changed my views about the President. Mahinda already had two terms. In fact, we all worked hard to give him a second chance in August/2015. We adore him. The history is written with Biographies of Brave Leaders like Mahinda Rajapaksa. But the country is NOT under obligation to elect his siblings/or/him again. We need to train a new line of Leaders. I see only one. There will be a vacuum.

    President Sirisena should get ready to contest again. I didn’t vote for him/or/there is no guarantee that I will vote for him in future. HOWEVER, if he contests against one of the Rajapaksas, then I will definitely support President Sirisena. He has ample time to turn the tide in his favour. Though I don’t have much hope, I wish he gets the support of one particular politician.

    President has some achievements so far and he is slowly taking control of the country. Eg: He thwarted an attempt to incite Christians against Buddhists “with one single sentence”.

    Different Presidents handle issues differently. President Sirisena has his own ways. I understand, the Government has formally informed OHCHR that Sri Lanka would not implement Geneva Proposals. Of course, we are not under obligation to accept a Report compiled by corrupt OHCHR, the decisions of which were influenced by LTTE diaspora. This is the best news I heard after this Government came into power. I am glad to see the President taking constructive efforts to sort out “Geneva mess”.

    Dr. DJ is consistent enough, in a twisted sort of way. Basically he is anti-Israel from the word go. Nothing wrong with that. But when he assumes that anyone ((such as MR ,the president of the SL- Palestine society) who agrees with that part of his worldview is automatically good for Sri Lanka, he is off the rails.—————————-
    Again, he sees the racist character of Israel, but is quite racist and xenophobic when he talks about South India.———————————————————————-

            Rice and curd is largely eaten by South Indian Brahmins , who have a distant North Indian origin. What has coconut got to do with South India! Go to Kerala southern Tamil Nadu, Karnataka. full of coconut trees and coconut is one of the main ingredients in their cooking.

    I doubt the people of Sri Lanka should take the biggest risk and vote for “the changed Gota”. We saw years of journalists being killed (remember Gota’s “who is Lasantha?”), threatened, and having to flee from Sri Lanka, we saw major nepotism, over 200 aunties and uncles in the Rajapaksa regime, all making money, and some caught with their hands in the cookie jar, we saw corruption to the highest degree, and money laundering all over the world, we saw white vans being used to kidnap and kill, and people living in fear. Only idiots will want to vote for a man suspected of being involved in all these crimes. The only thing Gota was good at was keeping the roads clean and neat. Maybe we should give him that job.

All of us including DJ should put every effort to find a genuine and honest person to lead this country.

      Why bring Ethiopia here? More appropriate “A leopard does not change its spots, nor a Lankan the skin”

      Even if Gota has changed for the better since 2015 he is answerable to all those things he did before 2015.

      A reformed Jack the Ripper must still be investigated for his past wrongdoings.

    DL quote: “…………I think Gota has changed considerably for the better since 2015, but even if he hasn’t, he is ten thousand times preferable to Ranil and……………..”.
    This says it all. The Freudian slip is “………….even if he hasn’t…………”.
    DL has modified the Orwell “two legs/four legs” to “Four legs good, four legs better”. Another “Animal Farm” quote “The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which”. DL is in this state of mind. Pathetic devil!

    Many times before CT has published sensational headlines which had no factual link to the contents of the article, it is a ploy of cheap journalism, and that is why when I viewed the video I was not surprised that the headline was just an empty crowd puller and that the video says nothing of the sort exclaimed by the headline. Common CT, get out of this tabloid rag mentality, you can do better!

    “. I do not retract one word or comma of what I said at the time. However, there is no statement in either my speech or the video which says that “Gotabhaya is behind the BBS” or is in any way “responsible for the BBS”! That’s a tendentious interpretation, or, to put it more simply, spin. “

    Who cares about any clarification; You have managed to manipulate the readers with your misinformation and many misinterpretations. As usual, you always will live in the periphery and guard the interests of the master, hoping for sunny days. Good luck fellow

    If Gota becomes a better person when he does not have power, shouldn’t we keep him like that for ever?

    “I think Gota has changed considerably for the better since 2015”

    Changed from what? At least the western thinking is that mass murders, sex offenders and pedophiles will not change. This is why registers are maintained and offenders are given long sentences. So what’s Sri Lanka’s secret for this successful change?

      Gota would not chage his even if you put him in a bamboo sheath. There is a saying in vernacular , dog s tail would not be straightened even if you put it in a bamboo sheath.

      Burt, good question. Sri Lanka’s answer is release Goat into the general population and one day he can kill more innocent people. Lovely politicians for the past 70 years never fail to amaze the world.
