Meanwhile In A Parallel Universe Called Humility: Stephen Harper Takes A Break

By Malinda Seneviratne 

Malinda Seneviratne

I was in New York the other day, but that was not to address the UN General Assembly.  I just took part in a side event on maternal and child health and attended an event hosted by the Canadian American Business Council (CABC).  My Foreign Affairs Minister, John Baird spoke at the UN instead of me.  He represented Canada and my position pretty well I thought, at least to the extent that he thought he was representing me.

But I’ve been thinking.  I didn’t attend the UNGA not because I though maternal and child health was more important or that powwowing with the CABC would be a more fruitful exercise, but due to misgivings.

You see, I have made it clear that I will not attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) 2013 in Sri Lanka. I’ve stated my reasons.  You can google to find the reasons. I’ve thrown words and terms like human rights, reconciliation and accountability.  But I’ve been thinking, as I said.  The truth is I know jack-whatnot about Sri Lanka. I know nothing about the history of the conflict. I have no clue about the true dimensions of grievances or the outrageousness of aspirations and so on.  All I know is that Sri Lanka did what none of us big-name nations in the West have been able to achieve.  I was dumbfounded and took the easy way out; I decided that if it happened, it must have happened at great cost.

I did not consider the fact that the Sri Lankan armed forces could have finished off the LTTE at least 5 months before if there was absolutely no concern for civilians held hostage by the LTTE.  I did not ask myself why the Army sacrificed hundreds of soldiers in the last days of the war. There are lots I did not know and lots I didn’t want to know.

But I’ve been thinking.  I’ve figured that if I am upset about what people whose reliability is at best suspect claim to have happened in Sri Lanka, then I should be horrified out of my skin about what I do know as fact. I am talking about what my neighbor, the United States of America has been doing and does in countries it is at war (to bring about peace, democracy and stuff, you know?).

I know all about Washington’s many exercises in manufacturing consent to launch wars. There’s the whole Weapons of Mass Destruction story (Iraq), for example.  Then we had Libya. Now I know that John Baird said something about Syria and I know it’s a load of crap.  If, as he said, Canada will not support brutal regimes that unleash weapons of mass destruction, then I cannot support the USA.  Baird was talking about chemical weapons, but I know that there is no conclusive evidence that Syria used them.  And I know that US ‘intelligence’ is fond of fantasy! John was trying to read my mind and I don’t blame him for saying these things for I’ve not spoken my mind.

Anyway, I believe that since the UN is headquartered in the USA, my presence would have amounted to tacit support for Washington’s crimes against humanity, in which I am ashamed to say my country has been complicit.

I’ve been thinking.  I beat my chest and said I will withdraw financial support to the Commonwealth.  I could gone the whole hog and said ‘ta-ta’ to Elizabeth and the Monarchy, thereby freeing my country from the guilt of association and complicity, not to mention being partners in crime of genocidal policy on native people of what we now call Canada.

I’ve been thinking.  I’ve realized that if I am to boycott countries guilty of war crimes, I cannot attend any conference in Europe.  I cannot go to London and genuflect before my queen.  Heck, I cannot go to Canada either.

I think I am going to seek Permanent Residency in the Andaman Islands.  I hope they forgive my transgressions, my imbecility and arrogance.

        Malinda would you please write a piece on the “Silence of the Lambs”?
        Please explain why Pathala Champika and Wimal Weerawansa and the Sinhala Nationalist Balu Sena and you are not protesting the British Colonial CHOGM show – that is enormously costly to Lankan tax payers -in November?
        The prices of bus fares and train fares are going up – but the CHOGM show goes on? After all Commonwealth of Clowns (turned into a PLATFORM for third world military dictators) is headed by the QUEEN of England – a monarch of the British empire that caused COLONIALISM that you and the JHU love to hate and bash! Also why have you not written against the white Commonwealth since you hate white people who collaborate with Tamils to divide Lanka?
        CHOGM or Commonwealth of CLowns Circus that MR is hosting for which mega bucks are spent on BEAUTIFYING the city of Colombo – with lots of colonial buildings and facades painted WHITE (thought the institutions proper are rotten inside – full of political goons as in the Colombo Municipality where files were burnt to cover up hiring of unqualified political cronies), has turned Colombo into a dust bowl! Please write relevant stuff Malinda?!

          BBS is planing an anti-Muslim Halal March on Oct 22 from Colombo To Kandy to distract from the Rathupaswella protests and citizen’s protest regarding the waste of funds on CHOGM Circus when the public bus and trains system is a mess and fares are going up – MS what do you think?

          Divide, Distract and rule by playing ethno-religious politics? Is that the name of the Rajapassa game?

          MS your analysis please???

    Well written Malinda. I disagree with you most of the time.

    Yet, someone needs to shine a light on Harper/Baird hypocrisy. Rather than putting them on a pedestal. Claiming they stand up for human rights. They do not.

    Please note Baird is currently visiting China. Trying to grab business deals. China is a far worse HR offender than Sri Lanka.

    Canada has the largest LTTE Die-ass-pora community outside Sri Lanka. Harper stands for good ” domestic politics” in Canada. Nothing else.

    Cheers!

      Unlike Malinda, I am no fan of the Rajapassa’s horrific Belarus style dictatorship in Sri Lanka.

      I just have a problem with hypocrites like this Harper guy from Canada.

        Ben while your anti Govt in corruption and all that i suspect that your anti minorities or else why would you call Canada as a hypocritical country,if you say that to the USA or UK i agree 100% but Canada is home to thusands of people and always stood for justice,leave aside the diaspora monkeys and the BBS/RB donkeys but do you Ben agree that there were excesses against Tamils and they need to be investigated?

          Peacelover,

          I am not anti Canadian. Agree it is a nation with an admirable humanitarian record.

          However, it is that humanitarian tradition that was used, misused & abused by LTTE cronies in Canada for their operations. LTTE was only banned as a knee-jerk reaction to horrors of 9/11. Not out of respect for Sri Lanka’s sentiments. Canada owes an apology to Sri Lanka.

          Harper’s boycott of SL is highly dubious. Just good politics for his party in Canada. Harper does exactly the opposite to Israel. A country with a 10 times worse HR record than SL. That satisfies Israel lobby in Canada and his right-wing Christian religious convictions.

          Harper should have come to Sri Lanka. Met the people. Stood with us. And then ripped the corrupt & lawless Rajapassa regime apart on the CHOGM stage itself. He would have been recognized as a friend of Sri Lanka. And her people. Not as a friend of seperatists or a calculating politician.

          Yes. Excesses against Tamils were committed. They need to be investigated. Many excesses have been committed against the Sihalese too. By the LTTE and by their own government. All this has to be investigated. By Sri Lankans. In the context of Sri Lanka’s recent traumatic history. And not just last 90 days of Ealam War IV to satisfy fake HR concerns of enemies of Sri Lanka or Geo-Political power players.

          Appericiate your constructive contribution to this debate. I beleive we both want the samething. Disagreements are minor and are about how to go about making Sri Lanka a better place for all her people.

          I agree with you. Rajapssa is a disaster in post-war Sri Lanka.

          Cheers!

        Ben @ Masses in the country are against MR.

        But when elections are held, results prove that they have won mostly with majority votes.

        I believe, there is no room for opponents in the country and nothing is being held today near to free and fair in the country. So, though NE election worked bit different with international aids groups, but all those elections held after 2005 are most abusive.

        So are all the crime investigations not forgetting Baratha murder case, Kelaniya MP murder case and several others… too.

        Today even small boy in his early teens would raise the question whether we have at all democracy in the country… It is not RW^s fault, but the megalomaniac Rajapakshes and his siblings should take the fully responsiblity for the nation in current srilanka.

        Summit would bring nothing but just wastes. CW summit is not heard to many in the Europe. Since UK is not powerful in EU today, – just near to be collapsed as it was the case with greece, i mean in terms of economic aspects… though CW countries may feel that that is a great summit etc…

        Rajapakshes are uneducated and they have no brains to get that easily. They dont know even to respect own folks, abusing the millary defeat of LTTERs, they try to manipulate the poor masses again and again. That is not fair at all… How long the poor people have to bear all these is the question.

      MR won 2005 presidential election on a promise to implement ‘Mahinda Chinthanaya’. There is no war but bringing peace to the country is the first and foremost in it. Remember, MR started peace talks with LTTE. He even send helicopters to transport their leaders from Eat to North. But no sooner, LTTE had responded with bomb blasts as usual. When LTTE blocked water to the mass, he had to start a fight for peace as in ‘Mahinda Chinthanaya’.

      But those who opposed the coming-up peace charged MR government is a failed state. So much so, detractors even wanted to import western war mongers creation of R2P as the solutions for our misery. The fact that they do not sing such lyric any longer shows Sri Lanka is no more a failed state even in their calculations.

      Nowadays geezers like Ben copy US agent Pillay’s mantra to accuse MR. They say, “holding elections does not mean the country’s leader is a Democrat.” This is absurd. If “holding elections does not show the country is democratic and the leadership is a Democrat” pray tell us, what then is ‘democracy’? Tell us whether so-called ‘democracy’ mean going against the winning manifesto? Or is it implement the policies of the opposition; in our case ‘regaining Lanka’ that were rejected by majority voters is the democracy? Or, is it to accept TNA policies of dividing Sri Lanka that were vehemently opposed by the majority voters and implement it, is the democracy?

      Come-on, MR has implemented most important part of ‘Mahinda Chinthanaya’ by defeating terrorist LTTE and bringing peace to all races in the entire country. Today, anyone can travel anywhere far safer than most countries in the world.

      When the presidential election was held two years ahead in 2010, MR promised an added set of policies; ‘Mahinda Chinthanaya Idiri Dekma.’ The major democratic opposition party, the UNP formed the most unholy coalition with Terrorists, Separatists, Jingoists, Arch Leftist and all those who opposed MR on various grounds to push forward a gullible war hero as their candidate with the sole purpose of defeating MR.

      Voters have smelled that uncanny association is a mismatch. They realized its a plot by neo-cons and their agents to pave way to divide Sri Lanka. And they have voted en-masse to defeat the dirty alliance with a large majority. As usual, losers accused the MR win is a gilmart and even tried to force post election upheaval through ‘Greeze Yaka’, ‘Arab Spring’ and whatnot mayhem for sometime. But public at large have refused to accept the government had caused any of it.

      People are no fools in this country. Literacy is 98%. People are well informed. Practically every house has a TV. There are more private channels than the government ones. 45% of households has access to www. They read numerous anti-government publications like LeN, CT and etc that carry articles with untruth, lies, rubbish and gossips. They also hear what’s happening around the world. So, they simply cannot be fooled. They know we are getting better by the day.

      There had been numerous election in between presidential elections and aftermath. Except for those homogeneous jingoists that forms the majority in the North where all in all less than 5% of the country lives, all races in all other areas have approved MR’s program at election after election.

      I say, MR should implement his ‘Mahinda Chinthanaya Idiri Dekma’ until the next Presidential election using his political acumen and authority to keep his party together and thereby maintain the political stability in the country that is absolutely necessary to take us to a real middle income level in real sense.

      I see a no alternative for a foreseeable future.

        See it as read on today^s news, now only your MR seems to be concerned of Tangalle murder. Why could not he address that murder issue immediately that UK tourist was murdered by him. Why the DNA test took 18 months to bring its results ? All these not only CW representatives but also the masses in our country should raise.

        This man is born murderers.. now is being chilled not being able to face those leaders in the up coming CW summit. British premier has already threatened to raise the issue in the summit. This CW summit will show MR a good lession. That will surely become his waterloo.

        Good luck you guys who have been hell bent further supporting him.

        Patriot,
        More importantly, he promised to abolish the Executive Presidency – even gave it in writing to the JVP.
        The fools backed him.
        He entrenched himself & his family using it.
        Mahinda Chinthanaya meant Family Rule.

          I now believe, ours are a folk that are strictly harboured to their kind of perceptions – specially about lanken ethnic problem – and it is not at all easy to change their attitudes. They may feel war victory should be SIMILAR TO ONE OF THE SEVEN WONDERS – finally fulfilled by magician -Rajapakshe – HUH ?
          Why the media men cant bring balanced articles (in sinhala or tamil) making better aware of the village masses – stay unanswered.

        Interesting ?

        “People are no fools in this country. Literacy is 98%. People are well informed. Practically every house has a TV. There are more private channels than the government ones. 45% of households has access to www. They read numerous anti-government publications like LeN, CT and etc that carry articles with untruth, lies, rubbish and gossips. They also hear what’s happening around the world. So, they simply cannot be fooled. They know we are getting better by the day “

        I beg to disagree:
        a) People are no fools in this country – This may well be in urban areas – but not once many times sofar, they have proved to be fools in recent elections (if rulers claimed fair election victories). Alone the fact – Dayasiri to have received the lacks of preferential votes – prove me that our people are stupid – by every means.. very idiosyncratic to them. For me, Dayasiri^s case is a paradigm to point out that the majority folks are stupid – actually that is common to many developing countries where abusive leaders continue their kind of tyrannies by the name of democracy. The reality as it is – masses stay mum having no access to express themselves.

        b) Practically every house has a TV. There are more private channels than the government ones. 45% of households has access to www. They read numerous anti-government publications like LeN, CT and etc that carry articles with untruth, lies, rubbish and gossips.

        Man where did you get these statistics ? Can you please add atleast ONE SINGLE reference to prove what you added above ?
        Me being out of the country, whenever I read most of the updates through a set of Web media institutions (actually that is the only way me to get them), and comparing them with the views of my friends and relatives back in home country, it is becoming very clear to me that they are not aware of the LEAST OF FACTS AND FIGURES OF ON GOING SITUATION IN THE COUNTRY. You talk about private channels ? – How many of those channels hold western style opinion polls to find out the people^s views ?
        And if 45% of the nation is accessed to internet, then the nation should really be a prosperous one – and almost every 2nd of the nation should be well aware of what is going on the world ?

        Besides, if every 2nd of the nation is well informed, why do they stay as if they halluzinated ?

      Truth hurts! Yes?

      We understand why you are upset. Your plan is to use “Snow Tigers” from Canada to knock SL down. For resons only known to extreme Tamil ethno-nationalists. Such as yourself.

      That is OK. But, do not sugar coat your poisonous pill with a fake concern for HR in Sri Lanka.

        Who is sugar coating? Just because USA, UK or other countries are hypocrites, do we have to excuse SL’s genocide? We equally concern for your heads too though our priorities are for Sl tamils first if you are not racists like Malinda. Just re-read the article.

          Manisekaran,

          There was no genocide in SL. But, you are welcome to dream on!

          Civilians paid a brutal price in the crossfire between a determined SLA & the LTTE gone mad (which you nurtured and supported).

          Excesses by SLA has to be investigated by institutions of SL. Rajapassa regime will never do it. Nor has any other Western government done such a thing after winning a war.

          I believe SL must do it. And set an example. A future SL regime will do it. All I oppose is international involvement with ulterior motives. SL must watch out for that.

          PS: Quit only being concerned about Tamils of SL. Sinhalese have suffered greatly too. All Sri Lankans are people. Suffering & pain is the same. Whether you are Tamil, Sinahalese or Muslim.

          Take a break from your Tamil tribal cage mentality. You are human first. Only after that are you a Tamil or a Sinhalese. Humanity comes first. It is only then we can stop these hateful crimes.

          Cheers!

            I am sure you know the story of the blind men and an elephant
            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blind_men_and_an_elephant

            We are not dreaming and we are not the “blind men”

            We are putting the facts in front of the world.

            I wrote this on https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/sri-lanka-if-this-is-not-genocide-then-what-is-it/
            and you did not respond.

            ” I know what genocide is.” What is Genocide then?
            “Believe me you will know genocide when you see it.” – How would we know?
            “Sri Lanka’s history since its independence from 1948 clearly demonstrates that all Sri Lankan governments were driven by the intent to destroy the distinct identity of the Tamils as a nation[1]. As these actions were underpinned by intent, they clearly fall within the definition of genocide as stipulated by the 1948 UN Convention on Genocide.[2]” https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/sri-lanka-the-genocidal-imperative-causes-and-consequences/

              Anpu,

              I have no reason to defend genocide against fellow Tamil Sri Lankans with whom I live and share this land, Sri Lanka.

              Current genocide charge against Sri Lanka is built around LTTE’s debacle at Nanthikadal lagoon in 2009. Largely given publicity by LTTE backers worldwide. I consider LTTE supporters to be world class liars. And so is their genocide charge based on what happened to “Sun God” in 2009.

              However, you are talking about a process since 1948. I agree GOSL has committed many blunders in dealing with minorities. In return the minorities, notably Tamil leaders have done the same.

              It is time to reverse all this. It is time for a new begining.

              I am a Sri Lankan, a Sinhalese and a buddhist by birth. There is nothing in my upbringing that encourages me to engage in a genocied against fellow citizens of my country.

              It is time to correct past misdeeds on both sides and move forward.

              Cheers!

              Agree with you. De Facto CJ is a stooge of “The King”. His recent ruling “Terrorists do not have human rights” was embarassing to our official name “Democratic Republic of Sri Lanka.

              I do not expect rule of law in SL under this regime. I think, I made it clear to you.

              However, I know Sri Lanka will bounce back. And that current regime will be dismantled sooner or later.

              And justice will be delivered.

              PS: Justice does not mean dancing to propaganda tunes of extremist, ethno-natiolistic lunatics among either Sinhalese or Tamils.

              Native,

              Yes. I am sure based on what I have seen in terms of evidence so far. I believe in facts. There is no case for genocide.

              However, civilian casualties or colateral damage as US/UK nicely refers to brutal, sudden, violent death or grave injury in times of war. Yes. Excesses and grave violations of human rights? I believe, yes. Should they be investigated and punished by SL? Yes.

              Since you have better access to sensitive information at all times, compared to most of us average citizens of SL, why don’t you share them with us? And make the case. I will be the first one to accept and apologise.

              Right now you don’t have a case.

              PS: I am not interested in defending anyone who has committed a crime in the name of my ethnic group or religion.

              Cheers!

    Two days ago on what is called Columbus Day in North America, a Canadian was lamenting the fact (in the British press) that the character of Britain has changed from ‘multiculturalism’, ie. immigration. He failed to see the irony of his statement as it applies to Canada, where the culture had been completely replaced by foreign invaders. The few ‘bhoomiputra’ left alive after the arrival of ‘civilisation’ are dispossessed and restricted to ‘reservations’ and living in abject poverty.
    Harper by his words and actions appears to have wished a similar fate on the Sinhala.

    As one more official white-washer Malinda S takes b..-sucking to new
    lows. That is to be expected. He has to establish he is doing his buck’s worth. But when Steve Harper, usually mild-mannered and kind of language, told the world “Mahinda Rajapakse is a serial HR violator” etc etc and went further to castigate MR’s friend Kamlesh Sharma
    “The Commonwealth has betrayed its core principles” the world, and notably the Western powers, will not keep quiet at this unusual outburst of their affable friend and benefactor.

    Sri Lanka fighting with Canada is no different to the dog looking at the moon barking in anger – and pissing simultaneously.

    Backlash

    And funnily enough, human rights violations in Canada against first nations (bhoomiputra) is being investigated by UN’s James Anaya currently and that makes Harper uniquely qualified to preach about human rights to the world.

    Two days ago on what is called Columbus Day in North America, a Canadian was lamenting the fact (in the British press) that the character of Britain has changed from ‘multiculturalism’, ie. immigration. He failed to see the irony of his statement as it applies to Canada, where the culture had been completely replaced by foreign invaders. The few ‘bhoomiputra’ left alive after the arrival of ‘civilisation’ are dispossessed and restricted to ‘reservations’ and living in abject poverty.

    Malinda, The irony in your article is that you also occupy a parallel universe in which SL should be treated the same as powerful countries such as the USA that have nuclear weapons!

    Unfortunately, the nature of the ‘real” world is such that the rules that apply to small countries such as SL do not apply to the US. If it did, what would be the point of building nuclear weapons!!

    Unfortunately, the geniuses who run our country haven’t figured out the above despite our 60 plus years of membership in the UN, A body that institutionalizes (in the form of a UNSC “veto”) the preferential treatment of the powerful as opposed to the weak. International power politics is not a fucking democracy where everyone is equal. The inability to grasp this simple concept is the reason SL is losing the NE.

    @ Patriot
    …and so MR is a great ruler, his Chinthanaya, fake elections are all democracy. MR started peace talks and LTTE responded with bombs…but now the country and people are enjoying the ‘peace’ harmony, honey and moon !…Nice story and we all believe everything what’s written. These are the racist thinking of the so called “patriots’ like Weerawansa, Champika, BBS, JHU, Sihala Ravaya, saffron robed racists and the likes. They are all still living in the well like frogs and refuse to come out or see the reality. They find their realism in the well only. No one can change their biased mentality, attitude or common sense since their vision is blurred by racism, jealousy and myth. The majority of the SL citizen and many in the world are getting to know how ‘well’ the country is ruled (ruined) by a corrupt bunch of GoSl terrorists, world famous rapist forces, the ‘panthang’ holding stooges, thugs, yellow robed poison minded ‘bachelors’ who are doing everything for their own personal benefit and who cares nothing about the ordinary citizen. The venomous thinking is not allowing them to be impartial, righteous, fair human or reasonable towards other citizen who are branded as unpatriotic aliens or invaders. Peace in many parts of Sri Lanka is in ‘pieces’, it’s only a myth and worse in NP & EP. Ask the people living in there,and facing the day to day problems, intimidation, land grab, anti religious activities,unemployment, displacement, imposed poverty, sexual abuses, subjugation etc., Those disgruntled lots have no one to even complain…and some see full of roses, happy life, peace, harmony and good governance. Who is kidding whom here and no one seems serious about what’s going on in the country on the whole. I don’t suppose this is just a joke. Sadly, I’m very pessimistic now about the nation’s direction, future and the hope I had is no more, after watching the ‘developments’ in and around, politically and otherwise.
    We have a loooooong way to go and grow up without the back ward mentality still prevailing among the majority. Majority of the 76% is suffering from a serious form of incurable paranoid for a very long time and it’s not at all an easy thing to cure overnight. The nation and the other 24% has no choice but to face all the consequences and suffer, probably for another very long time while many of the 76% enjoy the meaningless life with borrowed money at the expense of others and discreetly enjoy the pain of the neglected lot. It will be very difficult for the NPC or EPC to do anything good under the present dishonest, fake set up and future road blocks expected. Honesty and fair play is a far cry in silly Lanka, let alone becoming Paradise, which is just only a Mirage….

    Pattiya, Patriot alias Dr. Ruwan Ferdinandez the hyena.

    I felt and smelled a Rat here,
    So PATTIYA you are an educated zombie, sisi.
    Are you a HEERa. A person with no gentiles.
    A real educated person with gentiles, never, ever sell his Soul for money.
    It is better to beg in street and feed your Family than this.

    SOME BODY SAYS THIS
    What a shame for a person who say that educated holder of DR.

    “*******This fuku fuku simba is the same Dr. Ruwan Ferdinandez who now comment in Daily Mirror as Rubert Wendrkoon.
    He has some other pseudonyms as well such as
    nanabist, kris, ryan, sarojini, hamid, sivanandan, john, patriot, asanka, jimsofty so on.
    his only job is divert people from commenting to the topic.
    he is an educated GnanaSatan but was a rogue as GnanaSatan.
    when the gonraja falls MR falls,
    the next day fuku-fuku will have his nuts for breakfast.”*******

    In Canada, They are in trouble with respect to elections. So, they reach to minorities. Because, even those two electorates will be a big deal to them.

    If it were China which can give huge business deals worth billions all these will be non sense and he will come in his 747.

    Besides , dumping close to use by date food in big volumes after the Tsunami ( Oxfam Report ),Canada hasn’t been much generous in recent times,except giving a couple of Million Dollars to the NGOs, after Nanthikadal.

    And Messers Harper and Baird demand that Rajapaksa bend over ,so that the marginal votes in outer suburbs in Toronto will make safe seats for them.

    Why don’t they close the Embassy too, because it is absolutely of no use to the great majority of the inhabitant population.

    Would this great majority miss Harper and Baird?.

    Heck.. No.

    Evidently,even our new Vellala CM’s in law said so in a sort of a different way.

    Dear Malida,

    Dont get us wrong. No one claimed that you imbecility and arrogance. Many claim that you are just dumb. And those who bid your doing – even dumber, because you are doing them no favor.

    Every article you write give great opportunity for all those who know you and care for you to expose you – so that you may not do your self more harm and retain that 0.0000000000001 gram of credibility you may need to re-launch your future in different disguise – because we cannot live without the entertainment you provide us demonstrating how the internet is enabling the readers, who in great volumes here express their opinion of your intelligence credibility and integrity.
