          Manel,
          .
          It should be “
          English: heil
          Definition of ’heil’
          heil
          in British English
          (haɪl)
          EXCLAMATION
          1. a German greeting of respect
          VERB
          2. (transitive)
          to greet (a person) by saying “heil!”
          Collins English Dictionary. Copyright © HarperCollins Publishers

          I have been living in Germany for decades, they dont even use this ” term ” today, except for ” heilen”: It has several meanings as listed below. Many would not use the word that often.

          Some examples:
          Heilen: to heal
          Heilpraktika – healing practices ( like that of your AYURWEDA clinics).
          Heil und Gesund – safe and sound
          Heil angekommen – safe arrived
          Wunde heilen – healing the wounds
          Heil Hitler – several times that chanted slogans like “Heil Hitler” or “Sieg Heil” and also the gesture of the socalled Hitler salute, are characteristic symbols of National-Socialism.

          I challenge you to an English competition, Lt. Reg.
          For starters: How much Shakespeare can you quote.?
          Or compose a sonnet to match one of his.
          Let’s see you give him a run for his money

          Tamil from the north: You could have given William Shakespeare a lesson in the English language? hahahaha firstly idiot get the spelling of the man’s name right. Donkey yet you were only qualified to join a 3rd world army and even there you amounted to nothing. At retirement, you only rose up to a lieutenant? Sheesh shame on you, which kitchen department or toilet cleaning duties did the army put you in. Did a Tamil officer beat you up or did the LTTE buggers slap you silly?

            HAHA you mean the same ltte who were running for there lives in 2009 and hiding under women’s skirt when the army came hunting for these rats claiming to be tigers? Buddy, you are standing up for a terrorist organization who’s best weapon was to hide behind civilians, beg for a ceasefire with the government and cry for big daddy white masters from the west who’s toilets you tamils clean to interfere in the politics of Sri Lanka.

        Dayani
        You are correct.
        In English, it is hail.
        In German, it is heil.
        He should have said either;
        Heil der neue präsident OR
        Hail the new President.
        Heil Siege – Hail victory or For the win!
        Heil Hitler – Hail Hitler

          No Chapmpawathi.
          Dayani is mixed it up the term.
          Heil Hitler – is not translated ” word to word” but it was a slogan in Nazi Germany.
          Today many would not even use the term in that word combination. please read my post above.

        Asking to check his spellings is almost like asking Rajaakshes to be human !.

        Or not ?
        .
        This was not an election, but a conspiracy to escape from their court allegations. People are misled to all ends. If asked, they would talk high about Rajakashe palhoru, but they dont have proper arguments as to why they should be elected. All is like that DHATHU karanduwa saga in Kelaniya temple.

        In a country RACISM and EXTREMISM succeeded above any other civilized life styles, what more to be expressed ?:
        :
        Barabarians of Rajaakshes will never succeed as leaders.
        :
        Twisting the innocient mindset for their political survival has been their long term programs. Derana TV and Hir TV should be banned in SL. People should wake up from long slumber and stand against injustice of MEDIA mafia. See, that superstious fairy tales came from Kelaniya Viharaya misled masses in this country. So are the news headlines of Derana TV.
        But the journalists and news presenters are well established and earn that much of respect, so that people dont care even if they would have been subjected to chain rapes on broad day light.

            Another thing they made them depends on foreign countries. For example, Israel to fight. It is ok until you learn, but not for ever. Today Sinhalese don’t know how to count er Tamil or anybody on their own .
            Last , sinhalase spies are major problem. They control many news sites since colonial time

        Hell Burning,

        Rabies is a huge problem in Sri Lanka with feral dogs in the North, East, South and West.

        Govt. of MR tried to gas all those dogs during the CHOGM summit way back in 2013 but animal rights activists and Buddhist clergy were up in their arms.

        Now now I am referring to the real Canine type. You are not hinting at Tamils and Muslims are you?

            I think it is favorable to comment on the topics not to try to teach anyone anything.
            :
            This is a platform where we are given the chance to exchange on the political issues of our beloved country.
            :
            If Perera or other abuse the rules and regulations on this platform, it is CT to react against them.
            The terms such as ” Heil Hitler” would not use in Europe any more. Uneducated Sinhalayas obviously dont care of anything but abuse their mouth.

I just have a few questions, I always wondered what the 1st regimental special forces (combat ryder squadron) did. Do they fight in the jungles or just the city? Isn’t it very risky to travel in bikes since you don’t have much cover from gun fire? have you ever seen them in combat?

        Ben,
        .
        I thought our people would have learnt it even after fighting a 30 long year war.
        :
        But the racism today in the country is exponentially growing. They dont care about minoritiy people. Paradoxially, they love to wear PIRITH noole around their wrists and penises.
        :
        And when leaving the other, they are used to say ” Budusarnayi”; my gosh, what they practise in SL is not true buddhism as LORD BUDDHA preached it.
        It has now become a life style. If negibour murderous men would harm someone, you too have to join them, but at the end of the day, as is the case with BALLIGE PUTHA MAHINDA Rajafukshe, …. they are used to go to temple and lick the roots of the bo tree.

          This is just selfproclamations.
          But this guy is a political asylum seeker in Canada.
          We have no doubt, these men should have committed war crimes and later sought greener pastures.
          But the truth is as is the case with GOTLER being camped in the US, these men are not allowed to free move b ack to home country.

          Gotler too, said that, he is the key person to win the war, but ballige putha left the country and nation at the time, the nation needed him.
          :
          As is fairy tales being spread to the grass eating majority people, this man Perera too makes effort to fool us on this CT platform.

        Why not? Gota ran from Sri Lanka and worked as a cashier in the USA for many years. He went on to become the defense secretary and is now the president of Sri Lanka.

      Now they will surely change the law in favour of them. We know how they once ruled the very same punnakku eaters dominated srilanka.
      :
      There is a saying, even if dog’s tail would put in a bamboo sheath, it wont be straightened. Likewise, WAITING Rajapakhes to take us to right directions is almost like waiting pigs might fly.
      :
      My prediction is – RAJAKSHE SIBLINGS will go down to the very same manner as go tto see in Lybia with Gadafi Family.

    Ranil appears to be interested again in unity government. But the small parties blackmailed him to give way to Vaalaiththodam is forcing him to go for election. Mano Ganesan got fear when Vaalaiththodam, Mangala, Harin like the ones were resigning. He said “Tomorrow Cabinet will be dissolved, why these ministers are resigning”. The leaders of these small parties like Hakeem, Rishard Mano Ganesan would be already entitled to pension. But there are still about 70 MPs have to hang around until the end of the term. They would go with Ranil for Unity government. Few of they may even get minister posts, if Hakeem, Rishard, Mano gone out of cabinet. If Ranil can drag with even weaker unity government for some more time, he may become the president. That is what creating the fear with the smaller parties. They worked hard to make him give way to Vaalaiththodam. But it seems they fear if he is working around them by the back door. If the election comes they can renegotiate with King. Then they can block even the new constitution, proposed with devolution for North East. None of the crooks in the Parliaments are gentlemen but now they are preaching Ranil how to be gentleman by trying to make him give up his position.

    Kamal Goonrathna the Defense Sec.
    Cabral the Head of Economic Development and the Treasury.

    These are the real deal dudes who cut their teeth in the real world in their own fields..

    Not a Pen Pusher who spent all his life under under a Singer Ceiling Fan who was put in to coordinate the Intelligence Services of a Country which had the worst Terrorist Band in the World .

    And a Tailor Boy who was given the controls to a 90 Billion USD Economy..

    GR carried a lot of baggage his own AND MORE FOR THE BILLIONAIRE FAMILY. still the south voted him while the North and East rejected.
    Now GR is wise if he keeps family and the crooks and extremists away and forge to heal wounds and win over all communities.
    We will never advance divided on racial and religious line
    So lets wish him well to get started with TRANSPARENCY and ensure media freedom prevail not only to crooks who supported him but to all. The whole country knows that DILITH JAYAWEERA is a crook who played out the EPF using the stockmarket.
    All these buggers will die and as AIYO SIRA said they will be born as CROWS. Now we must move on and hope Ranil will step down as Sajith did and get the party to elect a new leader.
    Sajith’s conduct is admirable with maturity and honesty

    For Gotha’s victory by ballot he deserves the applause. However,when u analyse the story behind his victory it would appear that his victory was not on party lines but rather on a caste issue where the 2 major parties merged to ensure that a Goigama Buddhist won the election.Both Ranil W & the Buddhist Clergy were complicit in this plan. Whilst this is not unusual for SL, the fact that both UNP & SLFP joined hands for the benefit of SLPP is what takes the cake !!Now that Gotha has won, he has this wonderful opportunity to redeem himself and UNITE the Country as Marshall Tito did with Hungary, uniting a then fractured Hungary under one Flag though, unfortunately, this lasted only until Tito lived. The Sinhalese & Tamils have been in
    SL from time immemorial & there is so much in common between the two communities, as well the Muslims, Gotha will go down in history if he takes this opportunity to bring about peace between ALL communities & establish himself as
    the great REDEEMER and bring peace to the nation & to himself as well. May God be
    with him.

      Arul Sivapalan,
      Sinhala_Man,
      Indeed, Sri Lanka/Ceylon must not become a country which misses opportunities constantly. The ideal scenario would have been someone like Nagananda and a brand new team of people to come in right now. The mandate now at this election is to President Gota and NOT to Mahinda, Ranil, or anyone else. The people do not want the same old wine.
      The new President should now fulfil the people’s mandate (all people irrespective of ethnicity) and establish a country with ONE law for all.
      1. Scrap the wasteful 13th amendment and Provincial Councils
      2. Scrap the shameful Indo Lanka Accord
      3. Scrap all unnecessary bureaucracy – a burden to the nation’s taxpayers
      4. Adopt Singapore’s “Ethnic Integration Policy” (which DS used) to settle ALL ethnicities islandwide to ensure zero ethnic ghettos
      5. Ban all ethnic parties
      6. Ensure one medium of instruction in English for all students in one school system and gear it toward the future skills of IT, engineering, economics and science (the STEM education model)
      7. At any election, run with NEW people. Young people who have a vision, not the fat buffoons from before.
      8. Stop pandering or focusing on India. Open to the WHOLE WORLD and become like Singapore. This country needs massive investment which China, South East Asia etc can provide. Furthermore, scrap all Indian rubbish trains and invest in high speed electric air conditioned transport for all (both trains and buses from China, Japan and home made ones here)
      9. Build at least ONE proper international airport modelled on Changi.
      10. Build proper electric air conditioned trains and scrap all these Indian atrocious things that are not fit for living beings to travel in.
      If these BASIC things are done, we will become a harmonious, integrated and meritocratic country which economically booms and socially blossoms into another Singapore within no more than a decade.

    Gotabaya is a very capable man and I hope he will deliver on his promises. Some say he will be the Mahathir Mohamed of Sri Lanka. May be Sri Lanka needs a strong man like him because democracy has failed us for 71 years. Unfortunately his family consists of rogues and even though Gotabaya may have good intentions, his brothers, nephews and family clan will plunder the country all over again. Controlling the excesses of his own family will be the new president’s biggest problem. Then there is the issue of his citizenship that’s not going to go away. Renouncing US citizenship is a lengthy process which can take upto 18 months. He can be ruled ineligible by the Supreme Court if he is still a US citizen.

    President for one day and they are already attacking his future performance. I think you will all be surprised by the new year. You will be giving him grudging respect, that is all of you apart from the diehard Ranilists.

That is the high lights of this perticular presidential election. New presidents acknowledged it with his first address delivered in ancient city of Anuradhapura. Cheer Cheer & Cheer Sinhalese Buddhists. You have shown the world that you all are the real owners of this blessed Land !!!

    Rajiva Wijesighe on Al Jazeera TVs “Inside Story” clearly stated to Hashem Alshebra that Lasantha’s murder was committed in cold blood by the bloody “kalawedda Sarath Fonseka”. More and more things will unravel in the near future like Batalanda Ranil organizing & meticulously carrying out (without any Nondi) the sophisticated poisoning of Ven. Sobhitha Hamuduruwo. This bugger Ranil’s Sansara Gamana will be a Roller Coaster Ride, we understand Ranasinghe Premadasa’s Sansara Gamana hit a bullet railway crossing in the Okinawa Prefecture and thereafter still no trace….even JR Jayawardena same fate because he said in 1983, this is end of Tamils, in San Francisco he spoke for the Japanese people but idiot what evil he uttered for his subjects….these are buggers on whom Karma will never let lose its grip

      Rajiva Wijesinghe is an abusive person. He cant just get on with a team, but saying that he is a right, he moves nowhere. So that was the case with his procative politics of GG government. Man could stay back in UK and give his services to them rather returning to the shit hole where the uneducated men dominate and ruin the life of the destitute and all.
      :
      Give me one single example, anyone with Prof. Title did good politics in favour of the masses in our country ?
      .
      GLP – is the worst, lying with dogs – HE IS AN EMBARACMENT TO OXFORD
      Rajiva – self pompous character- always know-all nature., but did nothing within their chances
      All other professors in LANKEN politics could do lot more good work in the line of UNI education in SL
      Only idiots and their cronies are in lanken POLITICs. They dont their kadava to removed by intelligent people.
