Izeth Hoo-Saying Gets Hysterical

By H. L. D. Mahindapala

H. L. D. Mahindapala

The common ruse of the intellectually bankrupt interventionists in the public debate on various aspects of the national crisis is to brand those who defend the Sinhala-Buddhist majority as “extreme racists”. It is the stock in trade of those in the anti-Sinhala-Buddhist lobby to label the Sinhala-Buddhists as “chauvinists”, “racists”, “ultra-nationalists”, “extremists” etc. Demonizing the Sinhala-Buddhists with pejorative adjectives is their standard defence. It is their debased means of covering up their inability to meet the arguments that demolishes the bogus theories manufactured to denigrate Sinhala-Buddhists. So it is not surprising to see Mr. Izeth Hoo-saying (IH) branding me as an “extreme Sinhala racist.” He goes further and talks of my “language pointing to ethnolunacy”. I shall come to his lunacy in due course.

But let me first deal with his usual attempts to wriggle out of an argument by lying through this teeth. He told me when I was in Colombo in the 90s that he was one of the five great diplomats of the world. When I questioned this absurd claim in a piece I wrote in the Daily News he denied ever having met me. I told him to swear on the Koran denying that he ever met me. Then he backtracked and said that he did meet me and that he was rated as one of the five greatest diplomats by G. K. Reddy, an Indian correspondent, who was assigned to cover the UN’s annual sessions. That was good enough for him to claim that he is one of the five great diplomats was journalist Reddy. He was proud to quote him until I pricked and deflated his bloated ego with my queries. He obviously took one of Reddy’s cruel jokes too seriously.

When I asked him to name the other four greats to assess the calibre of his greatness he retreated hastily by passing the buck to Reddy. Carrying Reddy’s joke in his pin-head, he has been going round Colombo advertising his non-existent greatness because he has nothing else to show. Great men do not run their own advertising campaigns. It is up to others recognise their greatness. Only the mediocrities go round proclaiming that they are the greatest. Even in his latest hoo-saying (a crude way of protesting against arguments which cannot be contested) he ducks the issue. When he told me that he was one of the five great diplomats he was deadly serious, believing every word of what he uttered. Why would he want to tell me what Reddy said if he did not believe it himself, eh? As usual, not having an argument to defend himself he accuses me of “ethnolunacy” – the farthest he can go in the English language to get at me.

He also accuses me of “ethnolunacy” because I had not understood his argument. Just to put the record straight, let me quote his “argument” to avoid any accusations of misunderstanding. He says: “I made two simple points that the average reader can understand without difficulty. The first is that after the Second World War there has been a steady erosion of state sovereignty……. The second point is that in the second half of the eighteenth century it came to be established that the people and not the wielders of power are sovereign. It follows that a UNHRC Resolution could be unfriendly to the sovereign state and friendly to the sovereign people. Instead of dealing with that argument HLDM rambles along at great length bringing in irrelevant issues such as globalization. He has failed to understand my simple and straightforward argument. So advanced is his state of ethnolunacy.”

To avoid any misunderstanding of his simple argument let me restate his case derived from the words quoted above. He states that in the 18th century people became sovereign and not the state. From this he jumps – and it is a huge jump — to declare: “It follows that a UNHRC Resolution could be unfriendly to the sovereign state and “friendly to the sovereign people”. Just like that! He is twisting and turning not knowing how to convince the readers with his contradictions / lies. Even according to his calculations the anti-Sri Lankan Resolution L. 29 was a product of US-Indian alliance. And then he says the UNHRC passed the resolution as a gesture “friendly to the sovereign people.” Does he know what he is talking about? Does he know his own mind? How can UNHRC, which is an instrument of neo-colonialists, who manipulate international power bases to serve their interests, serve Sri Lanka with an anti-Sri Lankan Resolution?

Even a quick glance at the history of the Resolution will confirm the UNHRC has been manipulated to put Sri Lanka on the mat. First, in 2009 the UNHRC passed a resolution commending the Sri Lankan state for ending the war, saving 300,000 Tamils held as human shield by the LTTE. Then in 2015 – not to mention the previous instances – the same UNHRC condemns the Sri Lankan state and orders it to hold a hybrid inquiry as it cannot trust the local judiciary. Can IH tell the readers which one of the two is, in his language, “friendly to the sovereign people” of Sri Lanka? Can a “friendly UNHRC” first commend and then condemn the same state and also the people represented by the state? He argued that the UNHRC resolution is good for the sovereign people of Sri Lanka. If it is that good his duty is to point out which one of the two resolutions that came from the UNHRC is good for the people of Sri Lanka. He should also argue to show that the prosecution of only the Sri Lankan forces, as stated by him, is good for peace, harmony and reconciliation. Instead he calls me names and brands me as an “extreme racists” just because he can’t answer the questions raised by me.

What drives him mad is his inability to counter the debunking of his conclusions. The fundamental flaw that leads him astray is his inability to co-relate the mass of overwhelming facts which contradicts his concocted theories. He just cannot fit his theories to the facts and vice versa. For instance, he admits, in his reply to George Rupesinghe, that India and America are behind the Resolution against Sri Lanka.. He says, quite bluntly that “the US has been pushing its geopolitical interests through the UNHRC. It seems to me, on the contrary, that India was the prime player behind the UNHRC Resolution, and that the US acted as India’s partner to push primarily India’s interests and not those of the US.” Having said that he finds it difficult to fit these facts into his theory that it is good for the people of Sri Lanka. How can he justify that these two neo-colonialists are moving the UNHRC resolution for the good of the people of Sri Lanka when he admits that the two Big Powers are pursuing their political agendas at UNHRC “to push primarily India’s interests”? Also, if according to him the US has been pushing its geopolitical interests through the UNHRC can the 2015 Resolution L. 29 be good for the people, as he says?

I don’t want to go into other critical issues. I’ll stop at this to ask him what kind of “ethnolunacy” has he found in these questions. Why must he hide behind accusations of ethnic hatred when he has been the prime Muslim propagandists against the Sinhala-Buddhists? He has been directing his attacks on the Sinhala – Buddhists even when his fellow-Muslims have been the prime instigators of communal extremism in 1915 against the Sinhalese and even against the Tamils in Barber Street, Kotahena and in the East, according to Hindu organisations? He thinks I have singled him out because of his ethnicity. He should know by now that I have challenged far superior intellectuals to him like Regie Siriwardene and Prof. Carlo Fonseka and even lesser intellectual poseurs like Jehan (Pacha) Perera. I make no ethnic distinction. I have nothing against Hoo-saying except his idiocy.

It is his contradictions that make him look like a baboon who refuse to come down from the tree. He says that the UNHRC is riddled with 100+1 falsities and he wants the people of Sri Lanka to accept the Resolution based on it because it is good for them. He accuses me of “ethnolunacy” but he has no compunction in describing me as a Tuan, a Malay which in his estimation is of a low breed to Moors, I presume. Mark you, he poses as a defender of supra-ethnic values and condemns the pop Sinhala songs and propaganda as denigrating the Muslims as “Thambiahs”, particularly references to the revolving “Thambigay thoppiah bum-buwa wa-gay ”. But he has no qualms about falsely categorizing me as a Malay Tuan. Unlike IH I am proud to be a Tuan because it means “sir”, “master” or “Lord”. But he uses it as an ethnic insult. This is frustrated Hoo-saying at his worst. He finds it difficult in his little pea-brain to realise that this is a direct insult to the Malays by a Moorish (or is it moronic?) Hussein. Hoo-saying is stoking the fires of ethnicity which are still smouldering in an environment that is still searching for lasting peace. He says that my response to his Hoo-saying earlier “reeks of ethnolunacy” just because I punned on his name Izeth. Should such a high priest of ethnic values indulge in ethnic slurs? It is despicable not because he calls me a Malay but he intentionally seeks to insult Malays by comparing them to what he considers to be low Sinhalese.

At every turn he takes the opportunity to run down the Sinhala-Buddhists. He even says : “I must confess, alas, that we too have contributed in no small measure to the Sri Lankan tragedy by siding consistently with the Sinhalese racists in all their egregious idiocies.” But he deliberately ignores to mention Rauf Hakeem cutting deals with Prabhakaran after he had massacred the Muslims in Mosques. Besides, he would know very well that both T. B. Jayah and Badi-ud-din Mahamud, two of the far-seeing Muslim leaders who paved the path for the future progress of the Muslims purely with their beneficial alliances with the Sinhalese, would dismiss Hussein’s anti-Sinhala-Buddhist ravings as rabid growling of a tailless canine.

I do not want to add to this by quoting my dear friend A. C. S. Hameed who was like a brother to me. He even offered to appoint me as a successor to Neville Jayaweera when he was due to vacate his post in Sweden. But I turned it down because I found it distasteful to dance attendance to visiting Ministers and politicos at airports at midnight or cater to their salacious and venal proclivities. I had better things to do. Suffice it is to say that he had nothing but contempt for arrogant Hussein who was trying to teach Hameed how to suck eggs.

What is worse, Hussein is not a only born racist but also a born liar. As usual, not knowing how to hit back, he says that my father is a Malay. If he has integrity, honesty and guts he can prove that he is not a born liar by of going to the office of the Registrar of Births and producing the birth certificate confirming that I am a Tuan. But he can’t. He hides behind the cover of saying : “I’m told…”. By whom? This cover of “I’m told” is a game that two can play. Here’s how I would play it : I am told that at the soon-nath ceremony the operator mistakenly circumcised his brain as he could not find his shrivelled pigmy prepuce. This critical error in circumcising explains his Hoo-saying which is not an argument. That’s a hysterical reaction. But then who can stop him from saying “hoo”. I am told that he came out of the womb screaming that vulgar hoo!

PS: In my previous article I had inadvertently appended a book review on the US origins of ISIS to the main article titled A – Izeth of Hussain’s Politics of Haram. It is a review that appeared in Amazon.com. I apologize for the slip.

    You are undoubtedly one of the five greatest Hoo writers in the world. Now that is something, except that many will ask Who is Hoo Pala?

    You have gained notoriety (of the wrong kind)by the use of the poisoned pen. So while Esmond Wicks got the Golden Pen, you fully deserved the poisoned pen.

      A deadly poisoned pen this Mahindapala has, and I have no desire to invite diatribes from the guy; I know he writes better than I do, and has got all sorts of facts and figures at his finger tips. Let me confess that I’m scared of this guy; I wish few people ill, but I do hope this fellow goes to his eternal rest, or his next re-birth, as early as possible.

      I didn’t know that he had a Tamil wife, until I scrolled down to the comments of “Brian Senewiratne” and “backlash”. As Brian says, it may be that “He is also said to be ruing the fact that he married a Tamil”.

      All readers should understand that the only consistent thread that Mahindapala has displayed throughout his career of powerfully corrosive writing is racism, “extreme racism”.

      This man is a threat to Sri Lanka’s United Secular Future.

      Sinhala culture and identity are important. The Buddha Dharma is the noblest teaching in the world. But beware the “Sinhala-Buddhists”.

    I am no fan of Izzeth either, but Mahindapla’s & Dayan The D….y’s articles, I never bother to read.

    These two learned idiots who refuse to acknowledge MARA’s atrocities to the country and it’s people, are not even worth the kid in a kindergarten.

    As said earlier as well, only hell fire will open these idiots eyes or may be after MARA’s booty is dwindled, surely they might be in his pay roll.

    I am sure Dayan do not have a job so it is important that he keeps the wolf at bay with MARA’s booty, how about you Mahindapala ?

    By calling H.L.D. Mahindapala a Tuan, Mr Izzeth Hussain is not only insulting the Sri Lankan Malay Muslims but also unnecessarily creating a division among the Muslims (no offence to Mr. Mahindapala).

    First of all, the Malays should not be even drawn into this argument and the distinction drawn between ‘Malays’ (as low breed) when compared to ‘Moors’ is absolutely unwarranted.

    For those who do not know much about the Muslim community in Sri Lanka, let me say a few words. The Sri Lankan Muslims are the third largest ethnic group in Sri Lanka. Basically the Sri Lankan Muslim community comprises the Moors who speak Tamil as their mother tongue and the Malays who speak Malay as their mother tongue.

    The Malays came as soldiers during the Dutch period and mostly settled in the coastal areas like Hambantota, Beruwela, Galle, and Slave Island in Colombo.

    On the other hand, the ‘Moors’ in Sri Lanka came from South India (Kerala and Tamil Nadu) before the colonial period. The fact is that Islam had come to South India direct from the country of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) in the 7th century, while it reached North India very much later. The earlier converts to Islam in South India were called ‘Sonakar’. The fact is that the Muslims who settled down in the South-Western and North-Eastern Coasts of Sri Lanka as traders were all Tamil speaking Muslims from the Malabar and Coromandal coasts of South India. This has been testified to by Marco Polo and by Barbosa in his account of the Island in 1519. Both these agree that large numbers of ‘Moors’ from the Indian coasts resorted constantly to Sri Lanka. Barbosa speaks of their heads covered with handkerchiefs and of their earrings so heavy that they hang down to their shoulders. A handkerchief was necessary to cover their shaven crowns, while the earrings indicated most emphatically their South Indian origins. The Sri Lankan Moors lived primarily in coastal trading and agricultural communities, preserving their Islamic customs and the South Indian language/culture (Tamil as their mother tongue).

    Today, the Sri Lanka Moors falsely claim that they were Arab settlers who came as traders and settled by marrying Sinhalese women. If that is true, then their mother tongue should have been either Sinhala or Arabic and not Tamil. All the Moors of Sri Lanka (Marakkala Minissu or Sonahar) had come over from South India (Kerala and Tamil Nadu) and settled down as either traders or skilled workers. Their home language however continues to be Tamil, as originally the majority of these Moors were South Indian Tamil Hindus who embraced Islam in the latter part of the century when South India was under Muslim rule. . It is only religion that divides the Tamils and Moors. By ethnicity Tamils and Moors are one. Tamil speaking Moors (Mother tongue Tamil, not Sinhala or Arabic) do not have the slightest resemblance to an Arab in stature or complexion. There are no indications what so ever to believe that the Sri Lankan Moors are the direct descendants of Arabs.

    If Mr Izzeth Hussain, a Sri Lanka Moor (South Indian Tamil Hindu convert) believes that he comes from a higher breed than the Tuans/Malays, he is only living in a fool’s paradise.

      It appears the Muslims are bigger racists among themselves without any help from others. There are hundreds of different sects, although following the same book but with hundreds of interpretations and the inequalities expressed especially over women and on each others’ ancestry is comical.

        Why are we Sri Lankans so divided?

        The Sinhalese are divided into Udarata (Up-country) Sinhalese and Pahatharata (Low-country) Sinhalese, the Tamils are divided into NorthEast/Jaffna (Ceylon) Tamils and Up-country/Estate (Indian) Tamils, the Muslims are divided into Moors and Malays, the Burghers are divided into Portuguese/Parangi Burghers and Dutch/Lanci Burghers.

        Looks like racism begins within their own community and then spreads to others. Both race and religion are an individual’s private/personal matter and should be kept to oneself. A person’s race and religion should not be discussed in public. Others have no right to comment about a person’s race/religion. When are we going to become a race/religion free civilized society?

          I should like to thank Tuan Miskin to start with. He has given us a credible and seemingly objective explanation.

          While I agree absolutely, Nimal, with this observation of yours, “A person’s race and religion should not be discussed in public.” we would all like to know what our heritage is. For practical purposes it doesn’t make sense to go back to the amoeba. I should like to start with our all being Homo sapiens, some of whom are cannibalistic in the sense that we eat our remote ancestors or cognates, i.e. fish, pigs, cattle and fowls. Recently, there seems to have emerged a debate as to whether the much more civilised Neanderthals were driven to extinction by Homo sapiens.

          I must confess that I don’t understand much of what I myself have written in the previous paragraph. What I do see is that we still survive on the island thus described by a white Christian:

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkr0uEnWr1M

          I prefer a version where some Chinese looking people (from Singapore, I think) sing it more tunefully, but let me just give you access to the words:

          http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/f/r/fromgrim.htm

          However, this is what Gandhi thought of it:

          “You, the missionaries come to India thinking that you come to a land of heathens, of idolators, of men who do not know God. One of the greatest of Christian divines, Bishop Heber, wrote the two lines which have always left a sting with me: ‘Where every prospect pleases, and man alone is vile.” I wish he had not written them. My own experience in my travels throughout India has been to the contrary. I have gone from one end of the country to the other, without any prejudice, in a relentless search after truth, and I am not able to say that here in this fair land, watered by the great Ganges, the Brahmaputra and the Jumna, man is vile. He is not vile. He is as much a seeker after truth as you and I are, possibly more so. This reminds me of a French book translated for me by a French friend. It is an account of an imaginary expedition in search of knowledge. One party landed in India and found Truth and God personified, in a little Pariah’s hut. I tell you there are many such huts belonging to the untouchables where you will certainly find God. They do not reason but they persist in their belief that God is. They depend upon God for His assistance and find it too. There are many stories told throughout the length and breadth of India about these noble untouchables. Vile as some of them may be, there are noblest specimens of humanity in their midst. But does my experience exhaust itself merely with the untouchables? No, I am here to tell you that there are non-Brahmins, there are Brahmins who are as fine specimens of humanity as you will find in any place on the earth. There are Brahmins today in India who are embodiments of self-sacrifice, godliness, and humility. There are Brahmins who are devoting themselves body and soul to the service of untouchables, with no expectation of reward from the untouchables, but with execration from orthodoxy. They do not mind it, because in serving pariahs they are serving God. I can quote chapter and verse from my experience. I place these facts before you in all humility for the simple reason that you may know this land better, the land to which you have come to serve. You are here to find out the distress of the people of India and remove it. But I hope you are here also in a receptive mood and, if there is anything that India has to give, you will not stop your ears, you will not close your eyes and steel your hearts, but open up your ears, eyes and, most of all, your hearts to receive all that may be good in this land. I give you my assurance that there is a great deal of good in India. Do not flatter yourselves with the belief that a mere recital of that celebrated verse in St. John makes a man a Christian. If I have read the Bible correctly, I know many men who have never heard the name of Jesus Christ or have even rejected the official interpretation of Christianity, will probably, if Jesus came in our midst today in the flesh, be owned by him more than many of us. I therefore ask you to approach the problem before you with open-heartedness, and humility.”

      Terima Kasih Tuan Miskin.
      I have worked in Malay country. Malays have a glorious culture such as distinct language, dress, food habits, literature, music and dance. Srilanka moors on the other hand lack all these and are in a confused state about their identity. Wattalapan and Pickles are found in Malaysia and was introduced by Malays. Biriyani was copied from North-Indians. Now they are trying to copy Arab culture and are a pathetic sight. I hope Malays in Srilanka will vigorously pursue their culture.

      In 1995, a research project carried out by Dr. R. Jayasekara and his team from the Human Genetics unit, Faculty Medicine, University of Colombo, Sri Lanka in collaboration with the Department of Human Genetics, University of New Castle collected blood samples in Colombo and surrounding areas from 102 Sinhalese, 100 Tamils, 103 Burghers, 100 Muslims (Moors) and 103 Muslims (Malays) who were healthy, normal and unrelated individuals. Altogether 608 blood samples were collected and transported by air to the department of Human Genetics, University of New Castle. In the final analysis, the Sinhalese and the Tamil (including the Moors) Population of Sri Lanka appear to be the descendants of a single genetic group that had occupied this country. The DNA of Tamil Nadu Tamils is matching the Sinhalese, Sri Lankan Tamils and Muslims (Moors). There are no indications to believe that the Sinhalese are direct descendants of North Indians (Aryans) and Sri Lankan Muslims (Moors) are the direct descendants of Arabs.

      The people of Sri Lanka irrespective of whether they are Sinhalese or Tamils or Muslims/moors, all of them are historically believed to be the migrants of India. The three major religions in Sri Lanka (Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam) practiced by the Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims have also come to Sri Lanka from India. The two major languages Tamil (Dravidian) language and Sinhala (Indo-Aryan) language also originated from India and from very early times the culture of Sri Lanka has been one imposed by successive waves of Indian cultural contacts. It is naïve to argue that the Sinhalese are natives because they have a unique language and culture where as the Sri Lankan Tamils and Muslims are migrants because their language and culture still exists in other countries.

        Hi James I quote, you have written that”Sinhala (Indo-Aryan) language also originated from India and from very early times the culture of Sri Lanka has been one imposed by successive waves of Indian cultural contacts. It is naïve to argue that the Sinhalese are natives because they have a unique language and culture where as the Sri Lankan Tamils and Muslims are migrants because their language and culture still exists in other countries”. Let me give you some facts, We understand that the worrier King Asoka started to follow Buddha’s preaching after he had to halt his craze for concurring lands. When he saw many of his soldiers had died at the battle in Orissa. He was disgusted with himself and took to Buddha’s preaching and intended to spread Buddhist teaching to all his neighbouring lands 247 BC. Buddhist teaching was mainly in Pali Language similar to Sanskrit Where Hindu Scriptures were in Sanskrit. King Devanambyatheesan was ruling Srilanka, He was the fourth son of Muthusivan Hinduism was the religion of the people at that time. The Sinhala language came into existence in the 8th Century AD. it has Pali, Tamil and Elu (colloquial Tamil) Since 16th Century AD with the Portuguese, Dutch and British words crept in to Sinhala language. Mahavamsa was written in Pali in the 5th century, why! Sinhala language was not in existence. Mahavamsa assumption of Vijaya and his home in the north east of India is just a mere Myth. There are no evidence for Sinhala origin in India as no one speak this language. Thus the Origin of Sinhala is in Srilanka.

          Eusence aka Sach is a big joker who said the Mahavamsa is the most accurate history book but however what is said in the Mahavamsa about Sinhalese exiled from India is inaccurate. In a few days he will say Buddha was also born in Sri Lanka to the Sinhalese.

    Tuanpala, pathetic response to Izeth’s article. No clarity or intellect in this response. Suggest you spend your time at Vinnies sipping a free coffee rather than wasting the time of CT readers writing this garbage.

      “Tuanpala, pathetic response to Izeth’s article. No clarity or intellect in this response.”

      Mahindaspala, Dayan Silva and Malinda Seneviratne are members of The Three Stooges Fan Club. What can you expect? Nyuk! Nyuk! Nyuk!

    Great and accomplished people do not boast or brag. So Mahindapala has a point when he exposes Uncle Izeth.

    My questions
    A. Was Izeth a product of the Sri Lankan foreign service at a time it was really classy?
    B. Was Izeth appointed as Ambassador to Paris ONLY Because he was a Muslim by ACS HAMEED who was always traveling and made blatant appointments of UNQIUALIFIED muslims for their connections to a lot of places around the world?
    C. Uncle Izeth ARE YOU ARE CAREER DIPLOMAT OR A POLITICAL APPOINTEE like Mahinda’s cousin Jaliya the tea trader?
    D.Why would you cite some Indian journalist to claim your credentials if everyone knows your credentials?
    E. Mahindapala for once has raised valid points even though he was first a UNP stooge and attack dog, then became MR’s attack dog and has a history.

    Dear Uncle Izeth, please answer my questions. Are you as great as Kadirgamar or Neville Canakaratne or Shirley Ameresinghe or Bernard Tillekeratne or even Professor Seneviratne or Jayantha Danapala or are you above them all with your indepth knowledge of Muslim Arab racists etc? PLEASE RESPOND.

    Are you a political appointee of ACS HAMEED? Look at the man in Saudi now. He is Muslim lawyer but very able and proved himself in Hambantota. But he is a political appointee being son of a loyal UNP apothecary doctor of old. Look at Ganganath Dissanayake; UNP loyalist and activist for a long time but qualified with a PhD from Japan and was appointed to Japan because he worked hard in Ranil Sir’s campaign and is 100% green and an acolyte of former UNP ambassador Prof Karunasena Kodituwakku who was ambassador to Japan. What are your qualifications? Jaliya was tea trader with massive ethical issues and borrowed money from his SL expats and did not return it.

    ARE YOU ARE CAREER DIPLOMAT Uncle Izeth?

    HLDM is lying through his teeth to deny he is a racist.First he says that it was Hussein who claimed that he was among “5 top diplomats” in the world.Then he goes on to state that Hussien told him that it was Reddy who made that claim.Any one who knows Hussein either personally or through his writings would know that that he is of a different ilk to make any such preposterous claims.On the other hand no one worth his salt can say the same thing about HLDM.His low breed journalism and racism says some thing that no criticism can possibly convey.It has been proved that only half breeds that make excellent racists and HLDM is a living embodiment of this fact.Tuan Mahindapala can unfortunately do nothing to change the accident of his birth.He is also said to be ruing the fact that he married a Tamil.So these two facts combine to make the genesis of his racist bent.

    Finally,the lier HLDM is caught lying with his under pants down when he claims that Hameed offered to send him as
    Ambassador to Sweden to succeed Neville Jayaweera.This claim is pure bull shit.When Jayaweera was recalled sometime in December 1994, on completion of his term,the Foreign Minister was Lakshman Kadirgamar and NOT Hameed.At this time, Hameed was a humble member of the Opposition, as CBK had swept into power at the Presidential Election of August 1994.So can Hameed have done that? In any case ,Hameed , the astute and intelligent man that he was would never have even dreamt of appointing HLDM to this high post knowing the latter’s racist credentials and his inaptitude for anything serious other than excellent gutter journalism.By making this preposterous claim Mahindapala is only trying to boost his own self estimation ,thinking that he was ambassadorial material.

    Now Tuan Mahindapala is a congenital liar as well!!Is that a common trait of half breed too?

    I remember HLDMahindapala best for his article in Asian Tribune about a lavish birthday party by Prabakaran’s daughter in UK.

    http://www.asiantribune.com/node/314

    He was very imaginative in the old days.

      The fact that HLDM was able to describe it as ‘lavish’ in his article in the Asian Tribune was because he was present at the birthday party in UK at the invitation of Prabakaran.After all it is he who took a big bribe frm MR to become President in 2005 by preventing the Tamils from voting for the candidate of their choice.

    Poor Izeth Hussain (IH) at his advanced age should be taking things lightly in his retirement. Instead, he chooses to go into print making enemies almost every week. The trouble could be he has to somehow fill the columns of a fastly declining daily – on a weekly basis. So he gets into controversy after controversy writing sweet nothings. And to make matters worse, he is of a truculent nature. He responds to constructive criticism with undue venom and vitriol – losing sympathisers by the score thereby. Strangely, by his angry reactions he believes he “punishes” the other – a favourite description of his.

    I am no particular fan of HLDM, who, despite a Tamil wife, is a notorious Tamil-hater in the guise of being anti-LTTE.

    This is not the first time IH has been called “a born liar…lying through his teeth” in these very pages. When he was caught lying about his earlier “advise” to GoSL to starve Tamils as a means to break the backbone of Tamil resistance, the proper and decent thing for him to have done was to admit his enormous mistake and apologise. In these very pages he denied this for years until evidence was produced he was lying – arguably, a congenital cultural trait.

    Many of us treat his responses as entertainment in the line of what the American and the global audience presently think of Donald Trump. GK Reddy was one of the most sought after senior journalists in this region and a world figure at his time. If at all he called IH one of the 5 best diplomats in the world he was surely talking in jest – in as much that Indian Senior official Narayanan fooled Sarath Fonseka calling him, with a sarcastic smile, as “one of the greatest Generals in the world” Narayanan by that time knew of Fonseka’s learning and IQ. Fonseka fell for it and still boasts about this.

    There is no question “only mediocrities go around proclaiming their own greatness” It is in his customary prejudice against India IH claims “India (and USA) were behind the Resolutions against Sri Lanka” The truth is, on more than one occasion India came to our defence in Geneva. Senior Sri Lankan leaders openly thanked India for the courtesy.

    Admittedly, IH is knowledgeable and writes well. Even at this late stage, he should cultivate the polite art of diplomatic speech, writing and demeanour. Or else, he will continue to attract, once too often, such epithets as a “rabid dog growling of a tailless canine” – certainly not my words.

    HLDM:

    “Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. 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” GEORGE ORWELL – ANIMAL FARM.

    I expect more to come from both and we can continue to have a good laugh. I am dying to hear that the Bodu Bala Sena will soon be commemorating with a plaque recognising the untiring efforts of HLDM in being the unwavering defender of the Sinhala race albeit through remote control from his safe haven.

    I can tell you with certainty that the majority of Sinhala Buddhists are NOT “chauvinists”, “racists”, “ultra-nationalists”, “extremists” but a hand full of people like you have unfortunately given them this label. Only fault I can find with them is their silence.

      Mahindapala is not a racist. Actually there are very few racists among Sinhala people. When you have to counter attack rabid tamil and moor racists , sinhala people might sound racist..

      You cant be politically correct and attack racists.

    The handful of noisy Sinhala/Buddhists are indeed “chauvinists”, “racists”, “ultra-nationalists”, “extremists” ……………….

    If you go back in history the majority of Sinhalese and Buddhist had suffered because of the handful of noisy Sinhala/Buddhists racists.

    Therefore Sinhalese and Buddhist should make great effort to liberate their language and Buddhism from Sinhala/Buddhists.

    in 2009 the UN commended Sri Lanka. In the intervening period evidence of war crimes came to the fore. Sri Lanka failed to investigate that evidence, as it is obliged to do under its own laws. The result was a UN investigation and the resolutions running up to the 2015 resolution. Its quite simple.

    [Edited out], certainly does not look Sinhalese. He distinctly looks Malay. He is no Aryan, Sinhalese. Poor color for that. Aryan Sinhalese are either off-white through mixture with Portuguese, Dutch and the English or pure black like the guys in the Sri Lanka cricket team. [Edited out] Pala looks yellowish in his color photo. Explains his Malay ancestry and the shit in his brains. How is that for racism from me?

      I think you are insulting the innocent Malays and Portuguese who have nothing to do with the ongoing home and home match between the S’s@T’s in our island country.
      CT should edit and not give prominence to such comments.

    There are some mental patience here playing the man rather than the ball, it seems we have illiterate lot that got access to a computer and could not asses what is going on here.

    Mahinda’s assessments are spot on and some how our ex diplomat is confused about the new world order and rambling to the public about state sovereignty vs peoples sovereignty.
    Colonials loss the battle to keep other countries wealth for themselves and now trying the same using different tactics and the UNHR.

    Any reasonable person will tell you that, state is made out of people and for a small country, all they have is their sovereignty which was taken by colonials and now fighting to keep with the state. Sinhalese Buddhist created this civilisation and proud of it. It may be that “kallathonis” and jihadis would not understand it since they are tainted being a foreign dogs and lackeys who has been licking their foreign masters to keep them healthy.

    I challenge you to find a non-Sinhalese who will look after Sinhala interests. Each looks after their own community. This is natural. Needs to change? Yes, in a hundred years from now when we are part of the Asian Union.
