Israel Is Fast Becoming A Pariah Nation In World Politics

By Mass L. Usuf

Mass Usuf

Netanyahu is continuing to prove himself as a war criminal. He celebrates the release of four hostages over the dead bodies of more than 275 civilians of which 75 children and 700 injured in Nuseirat early this month. Hot on the heels of this heinous crime, comes the US drafted ceasefire resolution approved by the Security Council this June. How long will it last? The bloodthirsty Netanyahu will no doubt violate the ceasefire and then blame it on Hamas as has been done in the past. In the eyes of the world, Hamas then becomes the bad boy. Will this technique work or has the world awakened to the despicable trickery of Zionism?

“When IRA was bombing people in England, we did not drop 2000 lbs bombs on Belfast” was a chilling note with utter disgust from the ardent pro-Israeli Broadcaster/Journalist Piers Morgan. This was following the attack on the Rafah refugee tents killing 45 and injuring 250 already displaced civilians on 26 May. The silly claim of Netanyahu’s was, “there were two Hamas operatives.”

The Israelis and the Netanyahu government are marching towards a point of no return. All the fake protective fortresses that they had built surrounding themselves since 1948 have been collapsing one by one like a house of cards. Ironically, by their own ‘conduct’ or rather misconduct. They have themselves proven to be a self-centred, belligerent and arrogant. The recent undiplomatic and uncouth behaviour of the Israeli representative in the august body of the UN general assembly insulting and intimidating member nations and tearing the UN Charter is adequate proof of this.

The world is not prepared anymore to listen to the deceptive ‘Israel cry baby’ who complains about anti-Semitism, when it isn’t. Nor is the world prepared to listen to Israel’s sob stories of the much abused ‘victims of holocaust’ card, an insult to the true survivors. Nor is the world in the mood to accept the right of self-defence each time Israelis go on a mass slaughter of innocent Palestinian women and children.

Lies and Fiction exposed

The pretension, deception and manipulation with which Israel has been operating and presenting itself, misleading the global community, have all been exposed now.  The world has awakened with surprise and shock that behind the seeming innocence of the Israelis, there is the hidden Zionist agenda. An agenda whose characteristics are marked by wickedness, cunningness, scheming and brutal dominance. 

Above all, blatant lies and disinformation calculated to influence public opinion with one-sided arguments and emotional appeal. Here are a few instances.

(1) The world has heard enough and more times Netanyahu, his Defense Minister and Israeli government officials saying, “our war is with Hamas and not with the people of Gaza”.  However, the world has not forgotten what the Israel’s Defense Minister Yoav Gallant announced at the beginning of the massacre, “I have ordered a “complete siege” of the Gaza strip. There will be no electricity, no food, no fuel, everything is closed.” Imagine the plight of more than two million people.

(2) The Israelis loudly claim, “the war is been conducted in the most humane way possible to ensure minimum civilian casualties.” But, then, remember Netanyahu’s statement inciting the genocidal killing of Palestinians as alleged by South Africa in the ICJ case. He said that Israelis were united in their fight and that they are committed to completely eliminate them from the world. He made biblical reference to 1 Samuel 15:3:

“Now go and attack Amalekites, and totally destroy all that they have, and spare them not; put to death both man and woman, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camel and donkeys.”

By this incitement, the world has witnessed the slaughter of more than 36,000 and injuries to more than 75,000 people not to mention women, children, the elderly, patients in hospitals journalists, UN staff, humanitarian workers etc. They have destroyed hospitals, schools, universities, refugee centres, churches, mosques, agricultural and farm lands and even cemeteries. Exactly as Netanyahu had incited his army to do. Conflict analysts say that this verse has a long history of being used by Jews on the far right to justify killing Palestinians

(3) The Israelis during all its previous massacres have been fooling the world on “the right to self-defence.” The world ignorantly accepted it as fair and reasonable. The truth of this blatant lie reveals otherwise. The ICJ has confirmed in its ruling that an occupying power has no right of self-defence as stated under Article 51 of the UN Charter. It is not a fight between two equal states but between an occupier and those that they have occupied.

(4) Then comes the lies which violates United Nation resolutions, international law, humanitarian law and other international conventions. In defiance of all these, Israel has been forcibly dispossessing Palestinians of their houses, lands, roots and livelihood and then replacing these with migrant Settlors under protection of Israeli forces. In pursuance of this brutal occupation, they have slaughtered thousands of innocent Palestinian civilians since 1948.

(5) The champions of these laws viz. United State of America, Britain and Europe, the so-called civilised nations, have given Israel unparalleled impunity for all its illegal activities in Palestinian lands. Not only that funding and arming the Zionist regime. In the pending South African case against Israel, if the ICJ finds that Israel has indeed committed genocide, the so-called civilised countries will directly become guilty for complicity. The world is watching the immense pressure that is being put on the ICJ and the ICC by the lackeys of Zionist Israel, even direct personal threats.

A great diplomatic victory came in May when Spain and Ireland, EU members and, Norway formally recognizing Palestinian as a state. “I hope (this) sends the Palestinian people a message of hope that — in this their darkest hour — Ireland stands with them.  It is no longer enough just to condemn. It is no longer enough just to be repulsed,” he added. “We must be on the right side of history.” Irish Prime Minister Simon Harris.

Global condemnation

Little wonder that wave after wave of people belonging to all faiths, ideologies, the atheists, agnostics, university students etc. are on the streets worldwide. Let us be clear. It is not about anti-Semitism, Jews or Judaism.  Surprisingly, Jews and Jewish Rabbis are coming out as anti-Zionist.  An unprecedented phenomenon against Israel.  The pathological liars of the Zionist project have been exposed to the world. They and their blind supporters are standing naked but without shame.

Sri Lankans Beware

The Sri Lankan government cannot for petty gains mollycoddle Netanyahu, an alleged war criminal nor the State of Israel which is committing genocide. There is unverified public concern about Israeli’s exploring various avenues to get a foothold in Sri Lanka. May be, they apparently are exploiting Sri Lanka’s economic instability and unemployment problems to create a comfort zone for themselves. Israelis have never been honest and sincere in their dealings with anyone, leave alone Sri Lanka.

      ekithsiri, excellent putting together. Gen.12,3 God said to Abraham, “You will be great nation and I will bless all who bless and curse those who curse”. Israel is not cursed, only exiled from land for a period, while those who curse Israel will be cursed and finally destroyed in Zech.12,3

        So, it is NOT Netanyahu or the Zionist entity which is carrying out a Blood Bath in Gaza and also, to a lesser extent, in the West Bank. Those who get killed are not only Muslims but also Christians living in Gaza and the West Bank. And, according to you, all the Brutalities currently going on in Gaza and the West Bank are according to the will of the Christian God.

        Well, Well, Well. Are you a Christian or an anti-Christian?

          Outburst of an Islamic fanatic who is concerned only about Muslims. Tamils in Srilanka faced worse atrocities where Muslims were complicit, but he has never written condemning it. Firstly you must place facts correctly and then make the comment. Rightful owners of Palestine are Canans and not Jews or Arabs. Moses led his people from Egypt into Jerusalem and Jews have been in the area more than 2000 years (Jesus himself was a Jew). Arabs got together with Romans to drive Jews away and so the Muslim propaganda that Jews were transplanted from elsewhere is racist. Palestinians are facing divine retribution for the crimes committed by their ancestors to Canans and Jews. Arabs did not accept the creation of Israel in 1948 and went to destroy it and failed. They tried twice more and failed and now Iran is attempting it. Recent survey in UK found that 46& of Muslims wanted Israel destroyed. This number will be more in Islamic countries. It is this mindset and refusal to concede biblical lands to Jews are the stumbling block for a fair settlement of the problem.

            Worst racists in the world are Muslims. It was Arabs who first took Africans as slaves long before European slave trade. Arabs are occupying Egypt belonging to Coptic, Palestine, Jordan and Lebanon belonging to Canans, Syria and north Iraq belonging to Assyrians and rest of middle east including Mesopotamia belonging to Sumerians. Iran is occupying land belonging to Ealamites and Pakistan is occupying Indus valley belonging to Dravidians. Recently a 4000 year old Sumerian temple has been found near Riyadh. Worst apartheid in the world is the refusal to allow non-Muslims into Mecca. Worst racism in Srilanka is the Muslim claim to eastern province where their ancestors went as refugees. This is why Europeans do not want Muslim immigrants, and Poland has said that they do not have Islamic extremism there, as they do not allow Muslims in. Muslims are fast becoming Pariahs in western world. Israel came into existence according to Biblical prophesy and has divine protection. At present Israelis being firmly supported by powerful Christian countries, and divine assistance will come to them in the future from others. With Islamic terrorism on the rise in India, who knows that India may enter the fray on behalf of Israel and fulfil Biblical revelation that Israel will defeat its enemies.

              Dr.G,
              “It was Arabs who first took Africans as slaves long before European slave trade. “
              Your enthusiasm for your own people is to be appreciated, but you shouldn’t let it overflow into bashing other people. Europeans had slaves long before there were Muslims. In fact, everyone used slaves at the time, and that includes Tamils.

              Well, Well, Well. The LTTE Terrorist is going berserk and is blabbering.

              Slave trading was in existence from ancient times, long before the advent of Islam. The Indian Ocean too was a slave trading area going back to 2500 B.C. So, your fore-fathers in India would have been in the slave trade long before you were born.

              According to your warped logic, Muslims in the world are occupying other peoples’ lands. As bad or even worse is, your idiotic contention that not allowing non-Muslims to enter Makkah, is the “Worst apartheid in the world.”

              Yes. Israel has got the support of the powerful countries in the world now and the Israelis have NO place for God in their minds and that is why they are continuing their Brutal Occupation of Palestine for 76 years now. In 1948, when they took control of Palestine, they emptied 530 villages of the population Forcing over 700,000 Palestinians into exile in neighbouring Arab countries. They, with their descendants, now number over 6.0 millions. What will be the Divine Justice for these people? Does your Bible say anything about them?

                Islamic fanatics always distort the truth to hide their wrongs. Sinhala and Tamil word for Africans is Kaapiri derived from what Arabs called them as Kaffirs (inferiors). Slavery was there but they used their own people and not others.

            Hello Doctor,
            Whilst I agree that the Cananites – https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0092867420304876 were the predominant people in the area called Palestine there is also a presence of Philistines (Ashkelon) that have a South European and WHG (Western Hunter Gatherer) mix in their DNA. https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/sciadv.aax0061 Some believe they were Greek or from Crete. Maybe Jason and his band got lost on the way back from the Black Sea in search of the Golden Fleece.
            By the way there is no Historical or Archaeological Evidence for the Exodus. Apart from all that why should a people, that have lived for generations if not millennia in the area, be expected to concede their lands on the Basis of a book and a non-existent God.

              One more Paper to look at that may be less Technical – “Canaanites were a mixture of Zagros/Caucasian migrants and ancient Levantine farmers. Quasi-Canaanite ancestry is a major genetic source for Jews and Palestinians alike, though Palestinians have had less European admixture over time” – https://medium.com/migration-issues/who-has-claim-3-000-years-of-religion-in-the-land-between-23f220a697f7

              I agree with you that God is non-existent as it has not been proved scientifically. But there has to be a controlling power for the universe. Nucleus controls Biological cell of Chemical atom, Brain controls body, Captain controls the team or ship, King or president controls the country. Sun controls the planetary system and without it there will be no life on earth. But sun is only a star and there are billions of stars. There must be a controlling power for them. Similarly the controlling power at infinity is God, but that entity has no direct control on beings.
              Buddhism denies presence of a permanent powerful God, but it banks on Rebirth and Nibbana, which is not proved. Religions are hypotheses which will never be proved. Land belongs to the first nation and Jews can prove it archaeologically

            You are a staunch LTTEr with an extremely anti-Muslim mind-set with little regard for facts or reality. And you claim to be a Doctor. In what field are you a Doctor?
            .
            Palestinians are as much descendants of the Canaanites as the Jews.

            Jews were a majority in Palestine only till the 4th century. Thereafter, the Christians became the majority and remained so till the 12th century. Thereafter, the Arabs, Muslims and Christians, became the majority. In 1914, the Jews were about 13% of Palestine. The British who held the Mandate for Palestine after WWI, encouraged Jewish immigration to Palestine which made them 17% in 1931 and almost doubled to 32% in 1947 with the British plot to create Israel in Palestine reaching its final stage.

            So. the creation of Israel and imposing it on the Palestinians is a well planned plot by the West led by the British. Only the uninitiated and ignorant will think otherwise.

              Please make comments in your own name without being a coward. I have never supported LTTE as they were on the wrong path and foresaw their demise in 1987 when they fought IPKF. You are quoting figures from 12th Century. Before Jesus Christ, there were no Christians or Muslims. It was 100% Jews, and land belongs to them. You are a bigot who is annoyed when Islamic atrocities are exposed. Muslims always have double standards and will never accept crimes committed on others. Situation in Pakistan is worse and why are you silent about it. Few days ago when Pillayan wanted to erect a welcome arch in Tamil village Veeramunai in the east, Muslims objected and it was abandoned. There are several such arches in Muslim towns in the east. If Muslims can construct arches with Arabic theme in there villages, why Tamils cannot. Is this not rank racism.

                Hello Doctor,
                Nearly 2000 years ago, England was Roman. It remained like that until 410 AD. I think the Italians have a claim that they should own England. At the same time Wales was ruled by the Welsh Princes until first the Normans (after 1066) and then Edward I conquered it in the 1300’s. Germany and France were also ruled by the Romans. Do you think the Italians should take them back?
                The Canaanites were not Jewish, they were Polytheistic. If you look at which peoples have Canaanite DNA “The “most Canaanite” group is Saudis, followed by Bedouin B, then Bedouin A, then Palestinian, then Egyptian, then Jordanian, then Lebanese”. Amorites, Arameans, Edomites, Judeans, Moabites, Philistines, Hittites and Hurrians and Israelites all had Land or Kingdoms in the area called the Levant.
                Have a look at this Report/Article, which has a much more balanced overview of the issue. Try not to “Cherry Pick”, but look at the overall scope of the piece.

                  Again you are wrong. People in England were from Scandinavian area. Just because Romans ruled England, does not mean that people in England were Romans. Portuguese ruled Srilanka, does it mean that people in England are Portuguese.

          Muhandiram, there is none called Christian God as far as I am aware. The Creator God Jehovah gave spirit life to all humans and all spirit life returns to him when they die. But the soul life of men which decide good or evil because of the free will given to them, will come under judgment at their death. At the resurrection of Jesus, there was a resurrection also of the saintly lives who appeared to many in Jerusalem. Jesus promised one thief of going to paradise with him. So put together what will happen to you after your death. God’s will is that Jesus will come back to Jerusalem, capital of Israel and hence different from terror plans.

    MU,
    Don’t bring Middle Eastern problems to Sinhala Buddhist Sri Lanka. Sinhalese are still struggling to deal with the trauma Marakkala-Mappila Musl1ms caused by massacring more than 270 and injuring more than 400 innocent people on Easter Sunday. Allegedly the massacre was carried out in retaliation for the incident caused by white supremacist in Christchurch. Why should Sinhales pay a price with their lives for what happened in NZ????
    /
    Anyway, if Sri Lanka has to choose between Israel and Marakkala Muslims, no doubt they will definitely choose Israel.
    /
    If Israel wants a place in Sri Lanka to invest, then the whole of Kattankudy, Atalugama, etc are theirs.
    /
    The other thing is, Musl1ms have gone on to sabotage the agricultural and construction job opportunities which have been given to Sinhales

      Very little is known about the Easter Sunday Massacre other than that some misguided guys calling them Muslims carried out vicious suicide attacks in some Churches and Hotels in and around Colombo and also Batticaloa.

      What seems to be clear is that there are some other Forces behind the heartless suicide bombers but the Authorities have so far NOT identified those behind the suicide bombers in spite of Repeated Requests from the Leaders of the Catholic Church. Arch Bishop Malcom Ranjith has been very vocal on this matter. He repeatedly Bemoans the fact that for some reasons not known, the Authorities have Failed to come clean on this matter Five long years after the Massacre.

      Please DON’T Forget that the Easter Sunday Attack was NOT directed against the Sinhalese but against the Catholics and the Catholic Leaders are still pleading with the Authorities to reveal the TRUTH.

      shankar, Israel is not protected by a bigger pariah. Since you are unaware of the bible, these 2 references can guide you. In Gen.12, Jehovah God said to Abraham “Go to a land I will show you. You shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you and I will curse him who curses you. In you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” The 2nd reference in Gen. 17,2 ” Lord said to Abraham, I will make my covenant between me and you and continues in vs.7 as covenant with your descendants after you.” Creator God Jehovah cannot lie as what he says comes to pass. Israel was finally brought back to its God given land in 1948 established by the United Nations. Also, both Amos 9,15 and Jer. 29,14 say “never to be uprooted again” as Jesus had to be born, crucified and resurrected there, as well as return there soon.

        ps.unless he is killed by a woman.Then no 7 virgins.That is why the ISIS used to run away from kurdish women soldiers.You have your bible to justify the cruelty against the palestinians but they have the koran to justify dying as matyrs for their land.

Gaza belonged to Judah but invaded by Crete philistine giants like Goliath during king David’s time, and later mixed and called Hamas, different from West Bank Arafat’s Fatah and Lebanese Hezbolla but all financed terrorists. All who are born will have to die whether Israelis or current Palestinians. Who is Allah who will give the mythical 72 virgins. 66 books of bible were written by 40 authors over period of 1500 years. 1st gospel Mark, written in Israel where Jesus as a Jew, lived, taught in synagogue, crucified and resurrected, and even today his tomb is in the church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem exactly as written in bible. He ascended from Mount of Olives and will come back there soon, when all nations come against Israel. Zech.12,3. Gog Russia will invade Israel with Iran, Turkey and nations. Ezek.38,3. Watch China on belt and road join.

              shankar, bit of confusion here about romans who came long after Moses after building and destroying both Solomon’s and Herod’s Temples to Jehovah God for Israel worship on Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Roman Titus renamed Israel as Palestine (philistine enemy reminder) Jews who believed in Jesus went out to the whole world with the gospel of redemption and the love and mercy of God. Jews have finally been brought back in 1948 to Israel, Jerusalem, God, and returning Jesus, who gave the Holy Spirit power to witness.

            Israel was imposed on the Palestinians 76 years ago causing thousands of deaths and injury, and forcing hundreds of thousands out of their homes who were forced to flee their homes and land and seek refuge in neighbouring countries, thus shattering their lives. And you say that all this is to prepare for the return of Jesus to Jerusalem and nobody can say when he will return!

    Israel is politically and economically a nonentity without the support of the United States. As obvious, it is currently engaged in the Biden administration’s proxy war in Gaza which killed 37,300 Palestinians (out of which 15,000 are children) with the help of weapons, intelligence and international criminal and humanitarian law exemptions provided by the US. Did the US achieve its goal in Gaza? No! All previous US proxy wars had a clear target that involved a state which the US considered as a threat. In the US proxy war in Gaza, the target was Iran. Regardless of how much the US tried to provoke Iran, the latter did not directly engage in the US proxy war in Gaza which proved that the US’s proxy war in Gaza was a strategic miscalculation. After vetoing all UNSC ceasefire resolutions for 8 months, the US finally elevated its stance on Gaza from a pause-fire to ceasefire. As a result, on 10 June 2024, the UNSC adopted a US-led (incomplete and imprecise) Resolution that called for an “immediate” ceasefire in Gaza. Even after 5 days of the UNSC’s adoption of its own ceasefire resolution, the US failed to silence Israeli guns in Gaza.

      Champa, you tell “US failed to silence Israeli guns in Gaza” Netanyahu believes the bible which says Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, the city of Zion, which Trump declared in 2017 by shifting US Embassy there. Jesus was resurrected in Jerusalem and will return there with Rev.19,11 heavenly armies, where he judges and makes war, destroying nations that come against Jerusalem. Zech.12,3

              old codger, Netanyahu is a Jew who observes God’s feasts of Lev.23 We call Good Friday and Easter what they call Passover and First Fruits. You are not able to understand all this as you do not know church history. We celebrate the birth of Jesus as Christmas, while they call it the feast of Tabernacles composed of Rosh Hashanah trumpets, Repentance Day of Atonement and forgiveness, and Booths or Tabernacles, God dwelling with men. Jesus fulfilled all feasts except Tabernacles for which we are all waiting for his second coming only at those feast times. I don’t expect you to understand, hence don’t argue. Pray for revelation. Netanyahu is Israel PM and does not go to church but to the synagogue as all Jews do.

          LankaScot, Israel is very old. Bringing them out of Egypt, God says “I have chosen Jerusalem that my name is there.” 3000 years ago, by decree of King David who conquered it, became “city of David”. Solomon’s Temple was the 1st place of worship of God, destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar, and later rebuilt by King Herod, which was then destroyed and burnt by Roman Titus becoming emperor in AD 70 after Jesus taught, was crucified, resurrected, and ascended from Jerusalem. Jesus is coming back again to Jerusalem. Islam Caliph conquered Temple Mount in 635 AD and built Dome and mosque.

    Mass L Usuf, you may not understand that covenants with Jehovah God are very powerful and function eternally. There are several in the bible the last being with Jesus and hence moving into the eternal covenant. Abrahamic covenant is one of those irrevocable ones about being cursed when cursing Israel. Turkish Law maker Hasan Bitmez is seen in YouTube trying to wipe off Israel in parliament and falling down with heart attack and death, Iranian president Raisi tried to wipe out Israel on April 23rd with missiles into the air later grounded. On May 19th, he was in helicopter which grounded and burnt his body. At the gallows, Saddam Hussein shouted “Palestine is ours”. Hitler’s last words were “Jews”. Stalin of Soviet Union too struck dead. It is wise to avoid cursing Israel as Jesus will come back to Jerusalem for judgment and war. Rev.19,11

      Hello DTG,
      Hitler left 3 Documents to be archived when he and Eva Braun committed suicide at their Bunker. Goebbels sent Doenitz a message that Hitler had died at 3:30 p.m. on April 30, 1945. There were no witnesses, so no last words recorded. Hitler dictated 2 Documents to his Secretary – his Personal Testament first and his Private Will last. His recent Marriage Certificate was also included. His last words on the will were “Deinstes an meines volke geleistet habe” – I have done my best for my people.
      His personal Testimony ended with the sentence “Above all I charge the leaders of the nation and those under them to scrupulous observance of the laws of race and to merciless opposition to the universal poisoner of all peoples, international Jewry”.
      Josef Stalin died of a Brain Hemorrhage due to illness, possibly brought on by Warfarin poisoning, but no proof has been forthcoming.
      Saddam Hussein’s last words were “There is no deity but God, Muhammad is the messenger of God”. spoken in Arabic. Raisi never tried to wipe out Israel, it was all Choreographed.

          The biggest difference between me and you regarding Eternity is that you will never know that you were wrong. Think about it😉.
          The US was very upset with Netanyahu bombing one of the Iranian Embassy Buildings. So they arranged with Iran to ensure that little damage would be done in any revenge attack. If Hamas can still hit Israel with rockets and the Houthis hit an American Warship, do you think that Iran is not capable of inflicting severe harm on Israel? Raisi was killed in an accident. He was flying in a Helicopter that was old and poorly maintained. I flew in the same type (Bell 212) back in the late 70s and 80s and I have even seen a one that crashed due to bad weather.
          I have read the Bible, The Illiad and The Odyssey, Alice in Wonderland, Moby Dick, The Heart of Darkness and other great literature.

    The capture of Rafah was a big blow to Hamas, as it totally isolates Gaza from sea, land, and air. The network of smuggling tunnels diminishes in size day by day. It’s only a matter of time before Hamas runs of out of weapons. That is why Hamas is eager to accept a “ceasefire” at this juncture. The ceasefire requires the removal of Israeli armed forces from critical areas, allowing Hamas to regroup and rearm. Netanyahu is unable to accept the ceasefire because it likely signals the dissolution of his coalition government. The other interesting development is that Hezbollah has stepped up its attacks on Northern Israel. Leaving open the possibility of an Israeli ground invasion into Lebanon.

      Lester, Netanyahu will not accept ceasefire since a covenant in Dan.9,27 shows an antichrist form of false peace for 7 years which in the middle, he brings to an end, also described as the beast from the sea in Rev.13. It is by a political figure for one world military, one world religion, one world government, by which he enters Jerusalem to be worshipped as god, persecuting all who do not conform with a mark, a chip. Netanyahu knows that biblical truth will happen and has to eliminate the trained terrorists Hamas, Hezbullah, Fatah, Palestinian Jihad, Al Queda, Islamic Jihad, Taliban, Boko Haram, Al Aqsa martyrs, Houties and other rebels (Islam is not in the bible) Inspite of attacks and deaths in Israel, God will keep Israel as Jesus comes, after Russia attack joining Persia, Ethiopia, Libya, Turkey, Syria and Arab countries.

        There are American military forces in the region on standby, in case any country like Iran comes to the direct aid of Hamas or Hezbollah. The Americans will not let the war spread into a wider regional conflict. They will act on behalf of Israel. So Hamas has some territorial advantage but if the conflict continues the way it is, they will likely run out of weapons and ammunition and find it difficult to re-supply. On the political side, there is probably pressure on Netanyahu (from Biden) to finish the war before November.

        I read your reply in the “thero thread” about Sigiriya.In the book titled “Sigiriya: City, Palace, and Royal Gardens” by Senake Bandaranayake (published by Central Cultural Fund, Sri Lanka, 1986), there is a detailed discussion on the hydraulic systems and water management techniques employed at Sigiriya.
        According to Bandaranayake, terracotta pipes and conduits were used as part of the sophisticated water distribution network at Sigiriya. These terracotta pipes were used to channel water from lower reservoirs and tanks up to higher elevations within the fortress complex.
        Pipes were also used to dispose of sewage: https://amahvanniarachchy.wordpress.com/2022/05/26/history-of-toilets/.
        Regarding valves, the ancient Sri Lankans made use of something called ” Bisokotuwa” to control the water pressure.

Israel is a responsible nation and will not use the nuclear weapons unless some country like Turkey or Iran sends their armies.

          Many Atheists, like me only ask for Evidence regarding your (and others) claims of being able to predict the future etc. Reading a book from 2000 years ago is not evidence. Now explain how asking for evidence is misleading. Paradise, Hades and God are Human myths. Now show us all real evidence of their existence.
          I asked Lester for evidence of Advanced Hydrology in Sri Lanka, particularly Sigiriya. To give him his due, he has come up with examples that demand more serious investigation e.g. the Bisokotuwa. Even amongst the Archaeologists there is debate as to whether it was a Sluice Valve Box, a Pressure Reduction System or a Flow Meter (or possibly all three). These were not present at Sigariya but seem to be integral to the larger Wewas (Tanks/Reservoirs).
          But my point is that the evidence is there and can be examined and even tested.

            So far I only offered anecdotal evidence. After further analysis, I found a user on FB who calculated that 5,223.4 tons of granite had to be removed from the upper rock to construct the pool. At an elevation of 349 m, this in itself is an engineering feat. We can calculate the volume of water in the pool, assuming it has the shape of a rectangular prism. I will not bore you with calculations, the total volume is 1147.472 m^3. This is half the volume of an Olympic size swimming pool, enough for the daily usage of several hundred households. Assuming there is a tank at the top, does it have this capacity? We also have to think about precipitation. Dambulla is the closest town. From Google, “Dambulla typically receives about 238.98 millimeters (9.41 inches) of precipitation and has 255.69 rainy days (70.05% of the time) annually.” So it’s possible the primary source of water may have been a tank or tanks, with a possible secondary source being the springs at the bottom, with water being pumped via some hydraulic pump.

    Mass L. Usuf I applaud your concern for the Palestinian people as a fellow Muslim but how about you and the rest of the island’s Muslims showing the same concern to the plight of the island’s Thamizh as a fellow Thamizh, instead of remaining silent at best or worse joining the Chingkallams in their genocidal activities and war crimes against the island’s Thamizh, just for petty benefits. You people cannot claim to be Thamizh when it suits you like running to the west and claiming to be ethnic Thamizh and not Muslim Arab to gain asylum or when you had to flee your original south Indian homeland and migrate to the island come and settle in the Thamizh northwest coast as fellow Thamizh as it was then part of the Thamizh Jaffna kingdom, or when the Portuguese started to kill and persecute Muslims along the northwest coast and the Kandyan Chingkallams did not want more of you in their lands, run to the Thamizh east and claim refuge as fellow Thamizh. You people claim to be Arab so why didn’t you flee to Gulf Arab states as fellow Arab Muslims, why always run to Hindu Thamizh areas claiming to be fellow Thamizh or go to the Christian west and to other Muslim countries and claim asylum claiming to be ethnic Thamizh and not as Muslim Arab as you people caw everywhere else. Thamizh when it suits you and all other times Thamizh hating fake Arabs, joining with everyone else to discriminate and marginalize Thamizh.

      I applaud your concern as a fellow Muslim to the plight of Palestinians but at the same token as an ethnic Thamizh, I condemn your hypocrisy and at best indifference, at best and at worst, joining and conniving with the Chingkallams , as many of the island’s Muslims have done to discriminate, marginalize commit war crimes and structural genocide on your fellow non-Muslim Thamizh. You cannot show concern empathy to the plight of one lot of people in the name of religion and a fake Arab origin and be indifferent, rejoice and at worse actually take part in the genocide and marginalization of another people, who belong to your own ethnicity but not to your religion. Shows what a hypocrite you and most of the island’s Muslims are.

        When you and 95% of the island’s Muslims look at yourself in the mirror, honestly what do see? An Arab or a Dravidian Tamil that you people really are, despite all the pathetic Arab garb that most of you now wear.

          Hello Pandi Kutti,
          I have worked with many Muslims in a number of countries. In most of the Middle Eastern Countries the men wear a National Dress which is cultural rather than Islamic. I can’t remember seeing any Egyptians, Sudanis etc wearing the Arabic Ghutra. The Arabic people (mostly men) are also very dismissive of other Ethnicities copying their style of dress. The women in general wear the Abaya when outside the home and at work. At home they wear whatever they are comfortable with. The younger generation of Muslim women are much more relaxed about what they wear in Public, however I have seen older Muslim men having a quiet word with some of them in the Souq, that they consider to be dressing inappropriately. The powers of the Muttawah seem to be much curtailed nowadays. I haven’t seen any non-Arabic Muslims in Arabic Dress anywhere in Europe.
          Best regards

          Have you seriously done a bio-metric survey or counting on the words of Maamaa?

    Dear Mass Usuf,
    .
    Israel certainly is to blame for what is happening in Gaza.

    Those are protests from England. Let’s hope that they succeed in in getting the ceasefire in place – only just an initial step.

    I have not studied your article. There is too much to do on Colombo Telegraph; I can’t read everything.
    .
    For the most part, I make my views on the situation there when Dr Ameer Ali discusses it one of his articles. I thought of commenting because you are open enough to have given your email address. That is good; you take responsibility for what you write.
