Dayan Jayatilleka:The Architect-Ideologue Of The War Of Annihilation Of The Tamil Nation

By Surendra Ajit Rupasinghe

Would KP, Karuna and Pilliyan be possessed of this very same DNA? Or do they shed their DNA through some form of self-inflicted lobotomy when they join the Rajapakse Regime?

The following quotes are from an article by His Excellency, Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka Prabhakaran, the LTTE and Fascism- The Evidence, written in response to one of my articles posted on Colombo Telegraph. ( all emphases mine)

“Unfortunately for the good comrade, the fascist character of the Tigers is no longer a matter of speculation or theoretical argumentation. There is first hand evidence of the explicitly fascist nature of the organization, which turns out to have been not merely fascist in a generic sense, but explicitly Hitlerian and Nazi, from its genesis and in its very DNA”.

Wow! This is path-breaking science! First hand evidence that the Tigers, one and all, are explicitly Hitlerian and Nazi, from its genesis and in its very DNA. No wonder the man is promoted as an Ambassador of the Regime! This type of grotesque claims would make even Goebbels writhe in shame. Now pray, your Excellency, where is the first hand evidence, where were these DNA tests conducted on each and all Tigers? Would KP, Karuna and Pilliyan be possessed of this very same DNA? Or do they shed their DNA through some form of self-inflicted lobotomy when they join the Rajapakse Regime? Let us know, because then we can use the same method to rehabilitate all remaining former LTTE cadres. Let us know, since our people would be interested in sending the Rajapakse troika to the same laboratory, you know, just to be sure. Perhaps we could send all Ministers of State to these laboratories to test whether they have fascism in their DNA. Perhaps, even you should subject yourself to a DNA test. After all, according to your premise, one never knows who is infested – born- with fascism in their genetic code, in their DNA. Come on, Ambassador, let us be professional and scientific in dispensing our duty, without giving into habitual theoretical sophistry, political sycophancy and craven careerism. It is the very first time in the history of bio-genetic  science that an entire organization is claimed to have been fascist in its very DNA” Either this guy is scientifically illiterate, or he is a terminal liar- or both! Perfect credentials for being an Ambassador of the Mahinda Rajapakse Regime.

Then again, another quote;

“Well before Mahinda Rajapaksa was even a cabinet Minister I had advocated, in an interview given to DP Sivaram in the North-East Herald, and in my first book published in Delhi, that the aim of the Sri Lankan state should not be to use military means to drive the LTTE to the negotiating table, but precisely to ‘annihilate the living forces of the enemy’; to win the war by smashing the LTTE as a military machine”.

Now, who would be the ‘living forces of the enemy’? All known and unknown supporters of the LTTE, here and abroad? All militant Tamil youth? All who have some grievance with the State? All who were forcibly conscripted by the LTTE? All who happened to be caught in the crossfire? All Tamil people who had ever shared an aspiration for independence and freedom? The entire Tamil nation?

Now, who would be the ‘living forces of the enemy’? All known and unknown supporters of the LTTE, here and abroad? All militant Tamil youth? All who have some grievance with the State? All who were forcibly conscripted by the LTTE? All who happened to be caught in the crossfire? All Tamil people who had ever shared an aspiration for independence and freedom? The entire Tamil nation? Did the annihilation of the living forces of the enemy include Lasantha Wickrematunga, Nadarajah Raviraj, Joseph Pararajasingham, The five Tamil students assassinated in Trincolamlee, the 17 humanitarian workers assassinated in Muttur, did the enemy include Prageeth Eknaligoda, does it now include Lalith Weeraraj and Kugan Murugandan and countless others.  Tell me, your Excellency, in all honesty, could this formula possibly lead to a war of genocide, if not by intent, then by default?  Could it lead to carpet bombing of civilian habitats where the enemy may be suspected to hide, including schools, kovils and churches. Would it include those who came forward to give evidence and those who did not , out of fear? Would it require corralling all survivors in barb-wired detention camps, so they would be silenced. Would it require that there be no observers or monitors? Would the assassination of the living forces of the enemy require burning, looting and terrorizing the free media? Would it require all who oppose this war of annihilation be targeted as traitors and enemies of the state to be hunted and terrorized into mute submission or be killed? Would it require inhuman torture to extract information of the living forces of the enemy? Would it require razing all historical memory and monuments of the ‘living forces of the enemy’. Would this war of annihilation of the living forces of the enemy require the annihilation of the nation, which gave birth to the struggle for freedom? Would it require a draconian dictatorship, so no one would dare to speak out! Would it require the foisting of a unitary Sinhala-Buddhist hegemonic State, so there would be  no more talk of any other nation? I ask you to ANSWER, Ambassador, since you claim to be  the architect and ideologue of the military doctrine of  this war of annihilation against the living forces of the enemy.

This is the first time in modern civilized history that a war of annihilation had been prescribed to resolve an internal political conflict. Would you prescribe the same formula to deal with the Naxalite Maoists in India, the freedom fighters in Kashmir, the Palestine Liberation Organisation and Hamas, Hezbollah, the Kurdish resistance? What would be your criteria, apart from, of course, first hand evidence that they are fascists in their very DNA? Why not propose to the UN that it should establish such mass laboratories in every major city, to ascertain, with “first hand evidence’ whether any and all resistance and freedom fighters have fascism in their DNA. Perhaps, for the sake of equality and fairness, we could include every Head of State and their Ministers, and even the General Secretary of the UN! I mean, one never knows who is born as a fascist!

So, this is the architect of the war of annihilation fought to the end by the Sri Lankan State! Respected Ambassador, be careful. You may be implicated in the  war crimes and atrocities alleged to have been committed by the Sri Lankan State and the Regime. It may be that you have the blood of the innocents on your hands. It may be that you hear the cries of those alleged to have been abducted, disappeared and killed, all those prisoners of war who were alleged to have been hacked and mutilated, the women who were alleged to have been raped. Perhaps your conscience may bother you when you hear the agonized cries of the innocent Tamil  civilian population that is denied of their land, their livelihood, their dignity, their nationhood, who cannot weep nor care for their loved ones disappeared and unaccounted, the reported 95,00 war widows, the disabled and the orphans, the political prisoners languishing in detention camps without charge or trial?  Would you not agree that the vast funds- billions- spent on victory celebrations, on foreign jaunts and Mega Projects that edify the megalomaniacal egos of the emperor, be invested on these  priority issues that should be met by any civilized government.  Would this not be the way to build reconciliation? Would this not be the way to move forwards towards a political solution?

ANSWER THE QUESTION, AMBASSADOR!

    totaly agree with you from your point of weive,but my dear, you forgot how many singhalese innoscents got killed because of barbarian style of ltte.they didnot leave any hope for dialog with government (i dont support this kind of government anyway) so army had to do the dirtty job which we cant agree also,now the hardest game is over.what we have to do is to find a way to educate young srilankans (singhalese and tamul) to respect each others and live peacefully.i think dr.dayan jayathilake is doing a great job (dont forget he doesnt tolerate racist srilankans),once he told me a Srilanka Airport managers family are taken refuge (with fabricated stories) in franse and now doing a assosiation to help government programs with deputy minister sarth gunaratne.its funny, those srilankans,if you are unp and then they are unp,if you are slfp and then they are slfp and if lansa is in power they will drop sarath gunarathne and join powerfull lansa,thats how srilankans are working ..imagine Dr.dayan jayathilaka and Sarath fonseka Fonseka keeping faith on this kind of srilankans.dirty world !

    A man who represents a murderous regime, eliminate all opposition, doen´t support free media and helps
    ” Chandiya Culture” like Duminda/Bharatha or ICRA staff murder can not be a political scientist even if he proclaims. He believes he can influence public opinion and polish his image as an interlectual.

    Mr. Rupasinghe,

    You compare the “Naxalite Maoists in India, the freedom fighters in Kashmir, the Palestine Liberation Organisation and Hamas, Hezbollah, the Kurdish resistance” to the LTTE?
    Tell me of some instances where these groups invaded small hamlets in the night, performed terrible “home invasions” of wattle and daub homes and killed the sleeping innocent? Remind me I if any people were hacked to death, infants and children were killed or dashed on the ground, pregnant bellies slashed opened and the unborn child ripped from the womb and dashed on the ground. The LTTE did all this and more. they used children as cannon fodder, women as suicide bombers and civilians as human shields.
    I guess these deaths do not appear in your “highly offended” radar.
    I don’t care what the good ambassador calls the LTTE.
    They were monsters and that is a fact. No wonder the FBI classified them as the “most brutal” terrorist group in the world. No other compatriot terror group has descend to these depths.
    You may have issues with Dr. Jayathilake, or the Rajapaksha’s. That is your prerogative.
    The LTTE was all that Dr. Jayathilake pronounces them to be, and may I add my two bits and say that “they were rotten to their very souls”.
    No human being in their right mind or soul would ever be able to commit the horrific acts the LTTE did, day in and day out fro over 30 years.

    Those demanding the UnitedNations Human Rights Commission (UNHRC) to take up what they call Sri Lanka’s accountability issues had never been bothered when the LTTE was killing civilians in their thousands, UPFA parliamentarian Dr. Mrs. Sudarshini Fernandopulle says.

    Sudarshani, in brief interview with The Island, emphasised the need for an effective mechanism to counter LTTEpropaganda. Some foreign politicians had become eelam propagandists due to their dependence on the votes of LTTE activists in their electorates, while some NGOs bashed Sri Lanka as that was the way they could get funds, she said. “A case in point is Wiki Leaks revelation of British Foreign Secretary David Miliband playing politics to gain pro-LTTE votes at the expense of Sri Lanka,” she said.

    Dr. Fernandopulle said: “In fact, I hadn’t come across anyone raising accountability issues until the military brought the LTTE to its knees in May three years ago. The LTTE murdered my husband, Jeyaraj at the onset of eelam war IV. No one demanded accountability on the part of the LTTE. They assassinated Foreign Minister Lakshman Kadirgamar at his Colombo residence during the Norway arranged CFA. Western powers demanded that negotiations should continue, regardless of the foreign minister’s assassination.”

    Sudarhani said that the LTTE had massacred villagers, blown up buses and trains packed with commuters, assassinated politicians and wreaked havoc by dropping bombs on Colombo and Katunayake. They had targeted Defence Secretary, Gotabhaya Rajapaksa and almost succeeded in assassinating the then Army Chief Gen. Sarath Fonseka at the start of eelam war IV, she pointed out. But those demanding a probe into SriLanka’s accountability issues never took tangible action against the LTTE or those LTTE front organisations based in the West and North America to force the outfit to eschew violence, she said.

    Dr. Fernando pull challenged the critics of the government to produce evidence of their efforts to stop the LTTE from recruiting and using child soldiers as cannon fodder. The LTTE would never have been able to sustain its military onslaught without receiving a steady supply of children and funds from the West, she said. Those who declared the LTTE as the sole representative of the Tamil speaking people in the run-up to the General Election in Apr. 2004, thereby sanctioning child recruitment, were shedding crocodile tears today, she said.

    Those who still represented the LTTE’s interests should be held accountable for killings and abductions by the LTTE, said Dr. Fernandopule. On the one hand, they want India to pardon those found guilty of assassinating former Premier Rajiv Gandhi and on the other hand, they want SriLanka’s political and military leaders hauled up before an international war crimes tribunal on the basis of unsubstantiated war crime allegations.

    Widows of Gamini Dissanayake and Lakshman Kadirgamar could help the government counter LTTE propagandists effective, Dr. Fernandopulle said, adding that the other spouses and relatives of Tamil politicians and officials killed by the LTTE, too, should speak up.

    Civilian victims of LTTE terrorism should be brought before the local and international media, Dr. Fernandopulle said. Citing anLTTE suicide attack on the Central Bank in Jan. 1996, she said those killed and maimed in that terror strike should not be forgotten by the international community. She said the government should ascertain the number of Tamil speaking civilians, including politicians and members of other Tamil armed groups killed by the LTTE since the assassination of Jaffna Mayor Alfred Duraiappa, in the ‘70s.

    When I began reading this piece, I felt it was overkill. But as I proceeded, one could not but agree that Dayan Jayatilleka was a disgrace to humankind and academic training of any description and deserved every bit of what was being dished out. And more. He is truly a reprehensible individual as is borne out by his hypocritical conduct and is a Goebbels deserving of the same punishment as his masters. Unfortunately, I believe he is going to escape his just desserts, as will his masters, thanks to the monumentally hypocritical behaviour of the “international community” who, at the end of the day, don’t give a damn if there is nothing to be gained by ensuring that justice is done for some poor beleaguered Tamils in distant Sri Lanka.
