    This is how muslims abuse democracy to their advantage. Now, every arab is victimized. So, sri lanka has to take actions without delay.

      Sir,

      “All Religions Are “Stupid and Dangerous,” But Islam Is the Most Violent These Days”

      Can we hear from Lateef Farook, Hilmy Ahmed, Fazl Muhammed Nizar, Mass L. Usuf & Izeth Hussain soon?

      Would they write any lengthy essays? Bitterly complaining about the bloody mayhem faced by many innocents, including millions of Muslims around the world? At the hands of Islamist fanatics & terrorists?

      Would they restrict their endless whining to Wahabi Buddhist racist Gandasara only?

      Lateef Farook, Hilmy Ahmed, Fazl Muhammed Nizar, Mass L. Usuf & Izeth Hussain, please answer following before you whine again:

      1. Should a Muslim be killed for leaving Islam?
      2. Are women less worthy or 2nd class citizens?
      3. Should one be killed if he draws a picture of Mohammed?
      4. Should stoning be the punishment for adultry?

      Cheers!

      Meeharako, not muslims, but some muslims right ?

      The very same some buddhist like Ghansara balusara behave on day light attacking other people. Is that right ?

      You compare srilankens the hungry nation with a developed nation such as UK ? Man, get a life, we dont have such big problems yet.. Yes, we have to be alert, but that is written in our genes right , having fought terror for the last 3 decades.

      MANCHESTER, England — The Islamic State claimed Tuesday that one of its “soldiers” carried out an apparent suicide blast in Manchester that killed at least 22 people, including teenagers and others streaming out of a pop concert.
      Islamic State claims responsibility for deadly concert blast in Manchester, monitoring group says.Its statement was posted on the online messaging service Telegram and later noted by the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors militant websites.The tally of the casualties carried ages as young as elementary school students. Police said that among the 59 people injured, a dozen were under 16 years old.

      The bombing appeared intended to inflict maximum bloodshed on the young concert­goers — many of them in their early teens — who were making their way out of the Manchester Arena, one of Europe’s largest indoor venues, with a seating capacity of 21,000.

      The blast occurred about 10:30 p.m., minutes after pop star Ariana Grande had finished her set and many fans were gathered in the foyer to buy concert merchandise.
      Authorities believe they know the identity of the assailant, T.May added, “but at this stage of their investigations, we cannot confirm his name.”

    White people divide terrorists into two groups; ‘Good Terrorists’ and ‘Bad Terrorists’. If the terrorists create mayhem in countries except in Europe, UK, USA, Canada and Australia, they are ‘Good Terrorists’. If the terrorists create mayhem in their backyard, they are bad terrorists. To them LTTE terrorists were ‘Good Terrorists’ although they were officially branded as a terrorist organization thanks to 9/11. Because LTTE was considered as ‘Good Terrorists’, when the Sri Lankan Government was conducting the military operation to crush LTTE, they send those two rascals to put pressure on the Government to stop the offensive. When they realized that the Government is determined to crush LTTE, they planned to rescue Prabhakaran and take him to Norway so that they can use him again to create problems in Sri Lanka. Because all those attempts to save the ‘Good Terrorists’ failed, they came with war crimes charges against President Rajapakse, Gotabhaya and Sri Lankan Armed Forces showing their wicked hypocrisy. No war crimes charges against the most notorious war criminals George Bush, Barak Obama, Hilary Clinton, Tony Blair and David Cameron. They created ISIS by destroying Iraq, Libya and Syria. So let them pay the price for that. Sometimes ‘Karma’ works!

      Eagle Eye, SLCitizen, Dr Clean, ………..——————“White people divide terrorists into two groups; ‘Good Terrorists’ and ‘Bad Terrorists’. “———————- No such difference exists. There are bastards and “our” bastards. That is how the western establishment try to manufacture consent among the people. However unlike the stupid Sri Lankans (you included) ordinary people usually do not buy it. When VP worked for Hindians he was their bastard. When VP worked for Premadasa’s commanders though he was a Bastard he was their bastards. When VP won the election for MR there was a deafening silence on the part of MR clan. At the time VP was neither a terrorist nor a bastard. Its all depends on the self interest of person or group of persons, state, strategists, arms merchants, ……. When VP’s boys worked for Gota they were rehabilitated terrorists. JVP was MR’s bastards too.

      What has LTTE got to do with this. It is dead and gone eight year ago. Most Whites knew it was not the LTTE but the Sinhalese who were genocidal terrorist war criminals. If not for Sinhalese state racism and terrorism against the island’s there would not have been an LTTE . Do not try to cunningly deflect the blame on the a dead and gone LTTE. Even after 100 years you will be still blaming the LTTE for the activities of your racist terrorist sate

      Spot on, Eagle Eye. All these Western Countries that turned the other way when SL was facing the deadliest TERROR gang for 25 years are
      now getting it back with interest. While feeling for the “injured and the families of the dead” their leaders must be made to go through what our Country went through at the hands of the LTTE, the most vicious Terror gang in the world, DAMN GOOD. We had to experience countless “Manchester type killings and bombings”, and not one of these Western. Countries helped other than trying to divide SL and give a part to those Tigers. SL dealt with it through the bravery of our forces, who annihilated the enemy, and they are now trying to charge our Leaders and Soldiers with war crimes.

    Who are the terrorists? Those who love death and destruction? They are those who follow the Devil, Satan, Iblis, the “Wahhabi’es”, Salafies and their clones such as ISIS, Al-Queda who claim to be Islamic or Muslims, but in fact are not Islamic or Muslims.——————————————————————————————-
    What is interesting is that Sufi Muslims, Shia Muslims, Ahmedia Muslims and Ismaili Muslims do not commit terrorist crimes. Why? Because they do NOT follow Satan, Devil, just like the Wahhabies and their clones.———————————————————————————————————–
    It is like the BBS, who follow Mara and cause destruction, even though they claim to be Sinhala “Buddhists” and follow Buddha.

    UK masterminded the Tiger insurrection in Sri lanka, helping them in everyway they could. Balasingham the LTTE theorist was given asylum there. Adele Balasingham his wife operated from there providing training to the Women Tigers. England was as bad as India in this respect. Even now Tiger Rump members like Rajash, Mallayuran, live as refugees there and we can see what they are doing there from what they do in CT. That is only the tip of the iceberg. I am very sorry about the innocent victims who pay rather then the UK politicians.

      UK master minded the tiger insurrection! It was racist devils like you and a racist state led by other racist devils , who were the cause of the insurrection. How long do you thing the Sinhalese state can keep on supressing the Tamils and they will keep quiet? The UK is the cause of the insurrection as they had no right to join the Tamil areas in the island that had always been independent and separate with the Sinhalese areas down south in 1833 and create a new colony called Ceylon and then in 1948 , when they were4 leaving instead of either separating the island as they found or creating a federal solution, they left the island to the majority Sinhalese devils like you. They had no right to do this, without the permission of the Tamils. Consulting with the few Colombo 7 highly Sinhalised Tamil elite, many of whom had close Sinhalese friends and family does not represent the Tamils. These people never represented the ordinary Tamils and never will

        Rohan, I do not agree with you. I am not a devil. What I say is that the Tigers had money but not the political or military power while the British leaders had the had the power but not money. It was good business. Another possibility is that the British did it purposely so that they will get rid of the extremist LTTE.

          I know that you will not agree with me but the truth has to be told. You can agree with it or not Muslim. You also will not agree to the truth that Sri Lankan Muslims are basically descended from immigrant Indian Tamil Hindus who converted to Islam , with some having a distant male Arab ancestor. You will keep on repeating the lies that Sri Muslims or Moors are all descended from Arabs, which anyone with some intelligence and looking at most of you will know is a lie.

Bombing and strafing them from the air and sea and using banned chemical weapons and killing hundreds of thousands of them.

          I am still correct. Muslim by religion but Libyan Arab or Berber by ethnicity. Sri Lankan Muslims are Muslim by religion but Tamil ( Not Moor) by ethnicity. However since they want to deny their Tamil ethnicity and take on a pan Muslim and Arab identity , they will be identified with all this terrorism.
          Malays Indonesians Turks ETC do not easily get identified with Arab/ Pakistani Sunni Islamic terrorism as they closely identify themselves with their ethnicity and that is their primary identity. I also stated most probably the bomber will be a Muslim but not Sri Lankan Muslim but someone of Arab or Pakistani origin and what I predicted is correct.

      Major attacks by the Sinhalese state Eagle eye and the rest of the Sinhalese racists. Armed forces and police. Percentage of Tamils in the island,reduced from 26% to 16% within 60 years. Over a million Indian origin estate Tamils who had lived in the island from more than eight generations and produced most of the island’s wealth at that time were made stateless and forcibly deported to India. Over a million indigenous Eelam Tamils were chased out of their land and were forced to claim asylum in the west or languish in refugee camps in India. Still over 300000 Tamils are internally displaced with their lands homes and farms illegally occupied by the Sri Lankan armed forces or Sinhalese settlers from the south. 300000 innocent Tamil civilians killed by the Sinhalese Sri Lankan government and armed forces. 143000 in May 2009 on the pretext of fighting with the LTTE.
      Compare this to the number of Sinhalese killed 2500 so called civilians many of them like in the dollar and kent farms were thugs hooligans and criminals , deliberately settled in these areas to kill and ethnically cleanse Tamils . There was nothing innocent about them. and around 23000 members of the armed forces not even 1% of the Tamil civilians. You do not count the armed forces.

      Many of the Sinhalese civilians killed at various buses and bus stands in the north central province was the work of the Sri Lankan Special Task Forces, all Sinhalese. They deliberately killed their own people and laid the blame on the LTTE , however the truth came out..
      Kattankudi massacre was the work of Karun now the darling of the Sinhalese and Muslims. The Kattankudi Mosque was and is still a hotbed of Islamic extremism and the Muslims home guards used it as a base to attack surrounding Tamil villages and Karuna attacked it.
      A Sinhalese soldier hit to kill Rajiv with no provocation and failed. If the IPKF behaved themselves the LTTE would not have killed Rajiv. As for Premadasa and many other Sinhalese leaders , they were killed by other Sinhalese politicians and the blame conveniently laid on the LTTE. Especially Premadasa , he was a low caste and the upper caste Govigamma establishment did not like it and bumped him.

        Tamils are very good at cooking up data. We hear figures like 40,000 to 200,000 as being killed but none of these allegations have been backed by any convincing evidence. None of those making allegations have even given the details of the dead to the Presidential Missing Persons Commission or the UNHRC or even logged their deaths with the police to obtain death certificates. 13 March 2009 – UN Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay’s press release said that ‘as many as 2800 civilians ‘may have been killed’. As of 9 April 2015 only 16,179 civilian ‘missing’ have been logged with the Presidential Missing Person’s Commission. Details of 5000 missing soldiers have been lodged with the Presidential Commission. UN country team in Sri Lanka placed the dead as 7721. A Survey by the Government in the North at the end of the conflict done by Tamils placed the number of dead and missing at 7400 dead (included LTTE killed in combat) and 2600 missing (of this 1600 had been with LTTE whereas only 438 had disappeared in areas under military control). In July 2011 Tamil teachers of the North did a population survey of the North covering migration, deaths, untraceable persons from 2005 to 2009 – their report revealed 7896 dead including LTTE while the dead from natural illness and sickness was 1102. A simple question. If 40,000 (lower figure) died during the last stage of the war, what happened to those dead bodies. Evaporated in to the air?

    The Tamil Tigers invented the weapon known as the suicide bomber. Then they made many improvements, increased the kill power and deployed them indiscriminately against political, military and civilian targets. Thousands of civilians were killed indiscriminately. Finally, the LTTE became overconfident and assassinated Rajiv Gandhi. However, their crucial turning point was the attempted assassination of Army commander Sarath Fonseka. He escaped with his life but made it his life mission to finish off the Tigers.
    Those days, whenever a suicide bomber blew himself up killing dozens of innocent civilians, this is how the BBC reported it. “Today a suicide bomber exploded a bomb inside a train compartment in Dehiwala, Sri Lanka, killing 53 and injuring 77 people. Security forces said that LTTE is suspected to be behind the attack. LTTE has been fighting 25 year old war the Government of Sri Lanka, claiming discrimination against Tamils `that has claimed many lives on both sides”.

    Throughout the war, the UK government took the side of the Tigers, obviously tempted by the huge payouts made by the Tigers to the various leaders. Even now many Tamil Tigers wanted by the SL government are living free as refugees in UK and getting a dole. With the Manchester incident, Britishers must realize that the whole thing has come full circle to face them in the most horrendous manner. It is very clear from the way this crime has been executed that they have used the tactics, equipment and personnel very much like those of the LTTE. Perhaps those LTTE remnants are in collusion with the present perpetrators exchanging information, providing logistics support, explosives, funds etc. This is just the opening salvo of this type. One can expect more of this type of attack to come in the future.

        Muslims like Eagle eye and Argon are deliberately doing this trying to involve Tamils and a long dead and gone LTTE into this and divert attention from themselves. Vast difference other than the assassination for Rajiv ( due to the atrocities committed by the IPKF) the LTTE confined its activities to the island and largely to the Tamil parts of the island. It was a guerrilla warfare against the government to liberate the Tamils. Their attacks were largely on the military and government targets or Sinhalese thugs and hooligans pretending to be civilians like in Dollar Kent farms. They connived with Sinhalese armed forces to attack Tamil civilians. The Kattankudi Mosque was used as an arms depot by the Muslim home guards who again to used to attack innocent Tamils , therefore the LTTE attacked it as it was basically an arms depot/mosque.
        Muslim terror on the other hand is worldwide indiscriminate , largely attacking civilians and children, with the sole intention of forcing a very fundamental form of Wahhabi Islam on the entire world. These Muslims or any Muslim has not condemned this, instead as usual trying to make the Tamils the scapegoats.
        A generation ago the Sri Lankan Muslims had their own Tamil Muslim Sri Lankan identity, therefore were not associated or identified with Arab/Pakistani inspired Islamic terror. Now they have deliberately discarded this and taken over a Wahhabi Arab Islamic identity and identify themselves closely with Arabs and Pakistanis, therefore now closely will be closely associated with world wide Islamic terror. Ghnansara is correct, in some way.

        BBC were the accomplices of the LTTE terrorists during the war. One example is the attack on the Kolonnawa oil tanks. The BBC reporter was informed about the attack on the previous day by the LTTE. He positioned himself with his cameraman and filmed the whole thing like in a movie. He should have been charged and put in jail.

      As usual you Tiger Tailenders want to blame others for you misdeeds. The history of the Dravidians (Chola, Pandya) show a streak of suicidal tendencies when in battle. Perhaps a genetic flaw, which has been passed on to modern Tamils and exploited by leaders like Prabhakaran. The suicide vest, the explosives packed in to it, the triggers, the Cyanide capsules, a single bomber going and exploding himself or herself in a crowd of civilians, were all hallmarks of Tiger suicide bombers. They are now being adapted by other terrorists. The Japanese Kami Kaze were just crashing the Zero fighter planes on enemy targets. There is a vast difference here because the Kami Kaze targeted only ships and other military objects. Not innocent civilians, men, women and children.

      As I said before, LTTE targeted civilians for their suicide bombings and non suicidal normal attacks. Even among the civilian targets, they selected the softest possible such as peak time trains, Upasakammas observing sil at Sri Maha Bodhi, Young monks, poor undefended villagers etc. There are several reasons for this. (1) To drive away the Sinhalese from their border villages for their own security as well as part of ethnic cleansing of the Eelam. (2) To create maximum fear in the civilians, who would then apply pressure on the government to end the war and rant Eelam. (3) As a propaganda tool for other nations to show how brave and dedicated they are. (5) As a contractual obligation to their Western handlers (4) Simply being devilish.

    I am appalled by the small minded Sinhalese racist idiots in CT who take satisfaction by posting the four letters “LTTE” on anything and everything! .>>>>>>The latest attack by the ISIS in Manchester is a deliberate and calculated attack by the ISIS to target and kill innocent children who were attending a pop concert on their own will.>>>>>>>>>The Sinhalese were worse ; they invited their “target” children and old men and women to a no fire zone knowing very well they are gong to bomb them.>>>>So Argon et el you Sinhalese are worse than the ISIS

    BBc gives the reasons why UK authorities are taking the Manchester incident so seriously, although people like Rajash are trying to make short shrift of the whole matter for obvious reasons. According to BBC ISIS has not been using bombs since the Brussels incident, because their expert in bomb making was killed in that incident. Thus they were forced to use weapons such as knives, guns, axes and vehicle as instruments of killing afterwards. This suicide bomb bothers them because it means that a new expert has come in to the scene. The making of a bomb is no easy matter and the making of a suicide bomb still more tricky. One has to arrange the explosives in the special vests, and they should be thin enough so that suspicions will not be aroused. The positioning of the explosives and the shrapnel, like nails, depends on the intended target. In the case of Rajiv Gandhi the Tiger woman suicide bomber had them on the back side. She bent in front of him as if to worship him and detonated the explosives right under his face. The assassin’s body is said to have been torn in to two by the blast. In the case of the Manchester bomb, the explosives would probably have been arranged to spread 360 degrees around the assassin thus causing the maximum number casualties. UK authorities are looking for the other accomplices. In my opinion, if they want to catch the new bomber, they don’t have to look far. Look in the Tamil ghettos in Manchester and in places like Watford, Gammons Lane London.

    Britishers are yet to understand terrorism.. I believe the father of this IS terrorist is the one who was accepted by the UK Govt for helping them to kill Gadaffi. What most Britishers does not know is that London has become the center for terrorist world over to establish their head quarters. These organizations operate under the slogan of freedom fighters or diaspora outfits. Until UK Govt. tell their citizens truth about this and stop patronizing these outfits, unlikely things will change.

      “Britishers are yet to understand terrorism..”

      They had some experience with the IRA. But you are correct, this is a different beast. This time, the (Islamic) enemy is well-entrenched all over the UK. They are very well funded by rich Arabs, who believe it is their religious duty to subsidize jihad. It was easy to penetrate IRA networks; that is not the case here, since ISIS networks extend across a much larger geographical space. The best bet for the Britishers will be human intelligence, e.g. planting moles within the Islamic community proper, to gather useful intelligence. At least 50K European Muslims joined ISIS, so even with the best of intelligence gathering mechanisms, it will be difficult to stop so-called “lone-wolf” attacks.

    TG, good that you have written this. We also have a Seelawathi from Thumpane, who according to another commentator Edwin Rodrigo is really a Tamil Refugee in Europe belonging to the Tiger Rump. I have always been suspecting that UK is a major distributor of terror around the world. They accepted people like Anton Balasingham the LTTE ‘theorist’ with a red carpet welcome. Now having put the cobra in their sarong and gotten bitten by it in a very sensitive part of the anatomy, they shout, ‘cobra bit me! cobra bit me’. I am sure the vest technology came from the Tiger rump there.
