On Countering The Islamophobic Hate Campaign

By Izeth Hussain

Izeth Hussain

There is now widespread concern, even a touch of alarm, among many Muslims over what they regard as a very successful Islamophobic hate campaign. The hate campaign of the BBS that was obviously foreign funded and foreign backed, and had the blatant blessings of powerful personages in the last Government, subsided with the change of Government. But, according to a well-informed contact, the campaign has been going on steadily in the social media. Recently we had the revelation, provided by one of the chief campaigners against this writer, that the BBS was backed by Israel. There are good reasons to suppose that Israel would have wanted a continuation of the hate campaign: one reason is that the apartheid system in Israel can survive only if the rest of the world comes to share the view that the Muslims are a lesser breed who deserve to be treated as such.

The Government can of course be expected to ignore all that. The reason is that this Government, like all our previous Governments, prioritizes having a good time while the going is good, putting aside all serious problems until they become too urgent to ignore. It would be foolish of the Government to view a recent development in that perspective. Muslims participated with Tamils in a hartal against the Government. That, for several reasons, is too fateful a development to be put aside until the good time of the baila session is over. Since the anti-Muslim riots of 1915, the Muslims have been acutely conscious of their vulnerability and therefore sided with the Sinhalese against the Tamils – not a strategy of which this writer has approved. They have scorned the blandishment of a linguistic commonality between the Tamil-speaking peoples. Their getting together with the Tamils in a hartal seems therefore thoroughly uncharacteristic. What is the explanation? An explanation is that the Islamophobic hate campaign has been very successful, the Muslims are coming to feel abandoned – for instance over the grotesque injustice of refugee Muslims being denied their lands – and could come to think that they have no alternative to turning to the Tamils. It is time to stop the baila session, send the Navy Band home, and address the problem of the Islamophobic hate campaign. We must not panic over a single development. But it could be a portent of things to come.

The hate campaign against this writer, steadily sustained over weeks, months, and years, can be understood in more ways than one, but it can be wholly understood only in terms of an international Islamophobic campaign that has been under way in pursuit of Theodore Herzl’s neo-Nazi Zionist vision of a racist new world order in which the Muslims are regarded as not much better than pariah dogs. In that international perspective this writer is an insignificant creature – as the Tamil Islamophobes will shortly yell. Quite true, but it takes no more than a few Hasbara shekels to make a few Tamil Islamophobes carry out their bucket attacks in which fact and reason don’t count at all and only the flung filth does.

Consider the following inescapable facts. When this writer started contributing a weekly column to the Island he had a solid reputation – based solidly on his writings – as being outspokenly and daringly sympathetic to the Tamils. Suddenly he came under concerted attacks in which it was made out that he had been for decades a notorious anti-Tamil racist and also that he had always been notoriously anti-Indian. He refuted the charges with solid evidence from his articles, but to no avail because the charges continued to be made. And they still continue to be made by the two chief propagandists against this writer, Backlash and Kettikaran. Whose interests are being served by such attacks? Certainly not Tamil interests. It could be the interests of an Islamophobic hate campaign that holds that every Muslim should be treated as dirt.

A new Islamophobic campaigner has appeared in the Colombo Telegraph, Lester, possibly in response to the fact that this writer’s recent articles inspired many anti-Israeli comments. Lester seemed sober and well-informed but he soon declared his dog-like devotion to Israel. He holds that the Prophet Mohammed was a “madman” and that there is something “primitive” in the Arabs which makes them incapable of civilization. He does not recognize that the Omayyad and Abbasid Arabs achieved high civilizations. He concedes that there was a Persian civilisation, but those Persians were not Arabs. It is unbelievable mad drivel. But there is a method in his madness: he is using the tactic of the bucket attack, the favorite tactic of the Islamophobic campaigners, in which fact and reason don’t count and only the flung filth does. He keeps flinging filth at Islam in the expectation that more and more people will come to believe that Islam is filth.

Another campaigner requiring analysis is Real Sama who has been going on relentlessly, month after month after month, blackguarding the Muslims for denying their Tamil identity. He holds that except for an infinitesimal minority of the Sri Lankan Muslims who can claim some degree of Arab ancestry, the rest are nothing but Tamils. Next, he insists that they are low caste Tamils, sometimes declaring that they are really the products of intermarriage with the Sakkilis, the lavatory cleaners. There is a contradiction in Real Sama’s position. On the one hand he wants the Muslims to share in the glorious heritage of the Tamils while on the other he wants them to degrade themselves into low caste status by acknowledging their Tamil identity. According to a contact who has studied the devious ways of propagandists, the contradiction is only an apparent one. Sama’s underlying purpose is to affirm an identity of blood, which is much more powerful than an identity of language, to prepare the ground for a coming together of Tamils and Muslims in a common struggle for Eelam. The Eelam project is not dead.

One reader, Muhandiram, came out with information of sensational importance based on a report in Ceylon Today of August 17, 2013. Sri Lankan workers going to Israel for just six months were given military training at Maduru Oya and Minneriya training camps. The reason given was that “Life in Israel is harsh, especially with the weather”. But Israel is a Mediterranean country with weather conditions that are comparatively mild and equable. Muhandiram cited statistics to show that weather conditions in Sri Lanka are harsher, and besides workers going for long periods to the Gulf countries where the weather conditions are much harsher are never given military training. He points out that the attacks on Muslims in Aluthgama and Beruwela took place in June 2014, and those deploying the thug stuff were brought in from outside. Were they Israel-returned Sri Lankans? Muhandiram adds that it could be significant that the Ceylon Today news report can no longer be tracked down through the internet. This writer must add the following. The links between the BBS and the Wirathu gang were well established, pointing to a common force or forces behind them. It is known that the Wirathu gang inspired the massacre of the Rohingya Muslims, which has brought for Myanmar international contempt and hatred. Are there sinister foreign forces trying to foment another civil war in Sri Lanka, in which some of the Israeli-returned Sri Lankans could play a special role?

Backlash’s revelation about Israel’s backing for the BBS probably had behind it the behest of his foreign masters who may have had in mind a warning to the Muslims. According to Backlash the support for the BBS was justified because it was in retaliation for anti-Israeli demos by the Muslims. He claims that those demos stopped abruptly after the BBS campaign got going. So the warning could be that if material inimical to Israel continues to be published, Israel could retaliate. The following facts should be considered. There has been no significant anti-Israel campaign in Sri Lanka over a long period, understandably because Israel helped Sri Lanka during the war. But the Islamophobic hate campaign has continued causing widespread anxieties among the Muslims, and even some amount of alarm. That campaign therefore follows the dynamic, not of SL Muslim attacks on Israel, but of a world-wide Islamophobic hate campaign. The Muslims are not asking for the closure of the Israeli Embassy or anything like that. All that they are asking for is that their legitimate interests be safeguarded. Those legitimate interests include their being safeguarded against a foreign-backed Islamophobic hate campaign that is proving to be dangerously successful. Is that too much to ask of the Government?

      Mr Izeth Hussain,

      Your distaste for Islamophobia is no different to other peoples distaste for your Tamil-phobia, Valhalla-phobia ……..

      In a free world/society people are entitled to their phobias ……. How one deals with phobias as adults is a personal choice.

      And that separates the men from the boys.

        animal fernando,

        Hussain attacks the Tamils with repeated ad nauseam about caste and valzala in order to gain a platform among the Sinhala and also to divert attention from the Muslims. He does this religiously! In this case, establishing a platform among the Sinhala allows him to attack the BBS etc. This man is extremely insidious.

        It is evident that the Sri Lanka Muslim population is being steadily Arabised with the funding from Saudi Arabia. This is the basis of Islamaphobia in Sri Lanka. The Sri Lanka Muslims espoused a culture that is in keeping with the Sri lankan mainstream culture. This is being eroded creating disharmony; this is what Hussain should highlight and rectify. Instead, he seeks find faults with others!

          Izeth Hussain pretends as if he doesn’t know the following and more:

          1. Islam has this Jihad against disbelievers,

          2. Once you embrace Islam you have no choice to change religion – in some Islamic countries they are hunted down.

          3. Birth rates of Muslims are higher than those of other religious or ethnic groups.

          Does Izeth think with those above to fear, people should love Muslims?

            Thiru – yours of May 6. There are different versions of Islam, as there are in all religions. 1/I wasn’t taught a word about Jihad in the religious instruction I was given. 2/ On changing the religion the Koran says”There is no compulsion in religion”. 3/ There is a lot of bunkum about inordinate population growth among Muslims. After a certain stage of literacy is reached the average Muslim family has two children, as in Colombo – IH

          Burning Issue – you are right that the influence of Saudi Arabia is the basis of Islamophobia in Sri Lanka. But I have attacked that influence in a great many articles, more than any one else in Sri Lanka, far far more. I have explicitly advocated the wiping off of Wahabism and its clones from the face of the earth.
          I have never attacked the Tamils as a whole. I have only counter-attacked the Tamils who attacked me, stating explicitly over and over and over and over again that they are no more than a lunatic fringe minority among the Tamils.
          I accept the widespread view that the Tamils are more caste conscious than the Sinhalese. I believe that that can lead to a more virulent racism. – IH

            Aren’t the muslims cast conscious too. You are from mariakadde simple beginnings and are not aware of the influence the stinking rich muslims have over the Sangha because they do not belong to your cast or you are their pen. you can fool the villagers but not the city that has kept them alive from the beginning of portuguese rule.

              Muslims from South Asia are very caste conscious. Despite being Muslim, families seek only brides and grooms within their caste or higher if they can. I was speaking to a Pakistani Punjabi Muslim. His family originally from Lahore and he belongs to the Punjabi Jat ( farmer) caste. He stated they only look for brides and grooms within the Punjabi Muslim Jat community. I used to work with a Pakistani chap in the Middle East and was very friendly with him. He is the one who taught me to speak Hindi/Urdu fluently. He belonged to a rich and powerful Punjabi family that was connected to ruling military junta. He also told me that caste is an important factor in Pakistani society especially during marriage in Pakistan. Despite being Muslim people belonging to the lower castes are not treated well. Especially in the rural areas. If not caste it is tribe amongst Pashtuns and the Balochi. There is a pecking order amongst tribes too.It is the same amongst Arabs
              It is the same in India and in Bangladesh. Unlike in Sri Lanka in their homeland in Tamil Nadu, Tamil Muslim castes like the Marrikar, Lebbai, Rawther etc tend to be endogamous and do not easily marry into each other.

                Now I can understand why Tamil crow Siva hate Sri Lankan Moors. May be that Punjabi Muslim showed his friendliness through sympathy that you were discarded by other Muslim because you are a Tamil crow. Now you are poking your mouth and say Muslims are caste conscious. In Pakistan and India there are many types of Muslim communities including tribal. It is natural they look for bride in their own community and also of same religion. It is same with Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims. Among Moors there is no caste system, only religious differece. There are no caste brands, Moor mean Moor, no high caste Moor or low caste Moor. Only their worth they consider like businessman, Graduate, well employed or poor. If you Tamil crow even having a Phd or doctorate and if low caste, a high caste payment hawker too won’t give a bride to you. So you Tamil crow if you are hungry go to a tree branch crow for food, don’t poke your mouth on Moor’s affairs.

                  Neither you nor the rest of the Sri Lankan Muslims are Moors. You pathetic creatures are still desperately clinging to the incorrect name the Portuguese gave to all South Asian Muslims not just to the Tamil low castes who converted to Islam in Sri Lanka. “Moor”.
                  When the Portuguese/Spanish used the name Moor, it had nothing to with race or ethnicity but it was denoting to religion. As the only Muslims that they had met prior to their travels were the Moors from North Africa who ruled the Iberian peninsular for 800 years. Owing to this they started to call every Muslim whom they met during their travel Moor. EG Moro islands in the Philipines. DO these people also now call themselves Arabs/Moors and claim Arab/Moor origin. The answer is no? Only these low caste fake Arab Dravidian Muslim imports from South India.

                  contd
                  Whilst all the other South Asian Muslim communities quickly discarded this incorrect classification including the Tamil Muslims of India, you Dravidian Tamil low caste imports from South Indian pounced on this mistake and started to claim that you were actually Moors and Arabs to hide your actual low caste Tamil origin.

                  Just because a few drunken Arab sailors gangbanged a few of your distant low caste Tamil harlot female ancestors a few centuries ago, does not make you low caste Indian Tamil immigrant converts Moors or Arabs. Another Arabian Night tale.

                  Don’t think by trying to aggressively attack and insult me will stop me from posting the truth, low caste Hindu convert from Tamil Nadu/Kerala. Even you Arab masters have stated that Sri Lankan Muslims are not of Arab decent but South Asian converts to Islam. Well you are definitely not descended from a Punjabi Bengali Gujarati or even other north Indian or South Indian communities but from Tamils. GO and take a hike.

                    Real Siva Sankaran Sarma, you think we don’t know Portuguese called everybody Moors if they follow same Islamic culture irrespective of race. Portuguese did not know anything about N.Africa at that time. They called Muslims of Spain Moors at that time and that is how the word Moor began. It is not anthropological origin to refer to race or ethnicity. So tell me when they came to Sri Lanka they called Sinhalese and Tamil by their correct ethnicity but why they called Muslims Moors. Like you Tamil crow claim if Moors had the same culture, facial features, physique and broken type of Tamil language they would have called us Tamil. That is because Portuguese considered you Tamils are Australoid origin. So the feeling and facts that we are of a separate ethnicity is in our blood and however much you crow you cannot change that. Best thing you can do is to file a case against Government for using the words Ceylon Moors. You always call Moors Tamil low castes who converted to Islam in Sri Lanka. You don’t even say Tamil. I cannot see why CT does not consider this a racist comment and so I cannot understand why did not publish my earlier comment. Gangbanged culture you can see only in India so you Tamils are products of such culture.

                      Show me texts where Portuguese stated Tamil are of Australoid origin.
                      What is wrong with being Australoid? Austrloid or Causcasoid the Tamils produced one of the worlds oldest and sophisticated civilisations. The Tamil language enriched many languages in the world and this includes Sanskrit and from Tamil originated many other rich languages like Telugu Kannda Malayalam and even Sinhalese. It is ancient Tamils who spread the Indian culture and Hinduism and Buddhism to the rest of Asia. Look at Angkor Borubadhour in Indonesia.

                      Tamil people don’t car whether we are Australoid, Dravidian, Aryan Mediterranean or a mixture of everything, as we know who we are and our rich ancient civilisation. The ancient Indus valley civilisation is attributed to us.

                      Shameless creature. Fake Arab descendant of low caste immigrant Indian Tamil Hindu converts. Even the Arabs whom you worship and imitate, treat you low caste South Asian converts to Islam like shit and only use you creatures as cannon fodder for their Jehadi pursuits.

                      Only a low life will be poking fun of his own origin and worshipping another ethnicity and claiming that is his or her origin. as he. As their low caste backstabbing community thinks it beneficial. Typical mentality of your origin.

                      You are only making an idiot of yourself with your ramblings low caste.

                      You are pathetic that is all I can say. It is not Siva’s fault for stating the truth that Sri Lankan Muslims are more or less descended from low caste Indian Tamil Hindu converts. It is a fact and the truth and get over and accept it, instead of hounding and abusing people.
                      If it is not prove it with historical and genetic data. Everything points to a Tamil origin. Language culture looks etc. Due to the slight mixed blood a few of you may be of lighter skin but this still does not make you Arabs and negate the core actual Tamil origin.
                      Dravidians/Tamils are not Australoid just because they have a dark skin. They are basically a Caucasoid people, however there is significant Australoid elements amongst their lower castes not only amongst the Tamils but amongst all major Indian ethnic groups.
                      The Indian Australoid is different from the Australian Australoid, basically they are not Australoid but Veddoid. Anyway like Siva stated what is the big deal about being Australoid? We are all humans.
                      Portuguese never stated Tamils or Sinhalese are Australoid and Sri Lankan Muslims are Arabs. Stop lying.
                      Only to people suffering from some sort of inferiority complex or to a person of low origin, a person with a dark skin is lower than a light/white skinned person. Australoid is lower than a Caucasoid. Grow up. You are the biggest racists.

                  Yes Muslims in Sri Lanka do not have caste problems. Obviously you will not have as you are community largely descended from low caste Tamil Hindus who converted to Islam with some having a distant Arab male ancestor who was naughty with a Tamil prostitute. Nothing much to write home about or boast about. So where is the caste problem?

                    Pandi Kutti – piglet as your name suggest the ethnicity is secret. May be you are a Tamil crow of pig descend. First you donkey know no Muslim follow caste like Indians follow. Your caste system based on the work you do but Muslim do not have such system. They might follow their community or tribal system but no caste system among them. The link you give refers to revenge attack not because of caste. One of her rapist’s wife had eloped with her uncle. These western medias, like making a doll from mud with eyes, ears and rest of body they fabricate stories from a simple murder story and blow it to make it Islamic countries’ cruelties while rapes, murders and other cruelties are daily occurrence in their countries. You Astraloid origin Tamil crow give me one link where such thing happened in Muslim community in Sri Lanka or if you know tell me one case. So you pig don’t follow Tamil crow Siva although you too belongs to same low caste. See my comments above and below in response to Tamil crow Siva. If you pig is hungry come to our backyard where there is enough shit for you to eat.

            There is a limit to your lies, Hussain. I think the few Tamils in these columns were critical of you because right along you tried to place Tamils in bad light in your writings. Of course, you now deny this. You deny every other thing as well. That is why some of the Tamil commentators attacked you in defence – to the point you remain the most hated man in the pages of CT. For a people who do not have both, using the language and the culture of the Tamils you must show much more gratitude. The Sinhalese gave you land to settle down when you had none. And now they complain you demand the Deeds to the property. Is that your great Islamic culture?

            When you find the heat generated by your hateful writing unbearable, you begin pleading. It is all your fault. Stop attacking other communities and concentrate on the subjects.

          Correct Burning issue, Tamil people in the Island are not anti Islamic or against the Muslim religion but are rightfully suspicions nd wary against the Island’s Muslims or the so called Sri Lankan Moors( who really are not of Moorish or Arab ethnicity at all) due to their constant anti Tamil activities in the name of Islam and Arab culture.
          From the time of independence urged by their elite and politicians, they have constantly denied their actual Dravidian Tamil origin and culture and for petty gains have joined with the racist Sinhalese establishment politicians, armed forces police and even with nations like Porkistan to destroy the Tamil language people and culture.
          Despite all this, originally, they were still very Tamil in their culture, names, dress and way of life. They even followed the same type of Indian Islam that their ancestors brought with them from Tamil Nadu. Now they have become Arabised discarded everything Tamil in them and become some pathetic carbon clones of the Gulf Arabs. They have discarded their former tolerant form of 900-1000 year old Tamil Islam and have taken up to the intolerant Wahhabi Salafist doctrine from Saudi/Qatar regions and have increasingly become more aggressive and their anti Tamil attitude, wanting to steal everything from the Tamils, in order to create a Salafist Islamic homeland for their immigrant community.

            Moors don’t claim Arab ethnicity but says descendants of Arab traders but mixed with others. Moors don’t say they are pure Arabs but mixed race even today. This feeling that we are having as a separate entity is in Muslim’s heart from generation to generation and we are Sri Lanka Moors which you cannot change however much you crow. You show one Sri Lankan Moor having Tamil name, you show me one Muslim marriage where they follow Tamil marriage rituals. No Muslim wear Tamil dress, we have our own dress. Some little older Muslims wear sari but Gujarati style so you can cover the head easily. Way of life is 100% different from you Tamil crow and other non-Muslims. Muslims wash five time a day, daily bath is compulsory unless there is no water. Even after urination they have to wash, shave and keep their private parts clean. Men circumcise so their penis do not have accumulated smelly dirt under its skin. Muslim men have to give Mahar (money, property) to bride during marriage or before marriage, this is practiced since compulsory but usually give small amount. Some greedy Muslim devils follow Hindu and Sinhalese practice of taking dowry (cash, jewelry including thali and properties). 75% of Muslims had dropped this practice. We don’t eat thosai, idly, sambar, payasam etc. We have our unique way of preparing our food. We may take string hopper, hopper. As soon when you enter home you worship the idol kept there. When going out worship and keep a mottu, Muslims don’t do this. I can write pages giving the differences between Tamil crow and Moors but space do not permit me. Will you Tamil crow keep the mouth shut without bringing unfounded stories regarding Ceylon Moor (still use this to refer to us)?

              Core genetic material of all the Moors tested was south Indian. Arab genetic input is only 6%. Even if descended from an Arab ancestor, these moors had mixed with south Indians subsequently. No moor can trace his or her ancestry to a high class family. This shows that these Arab traders co-habited with low class and low caste Sinhala or Tamil women. Be proud of your iferior origin and do not get angry when someone points this out.

                These so called fake Moors of Sri Lanka will keep on denying their Tamil origin and pathetically cling to their miniscule amount of Arab ancestry that came from the wrong side of the bed and try to tell the world that their of Arab/Moor descent, thinking they will look good and to gain maximum political advantage and other benefits at the expense of the island’s non Muslim Tamils.
                They speak Tamil and everything about them until very recently reeked of Tamils until they got radicalised and Arabised themselves and became ardent Wahhabis.
                Despite being ethnically Tamil and speaking Tamil, in the name of their religion, they do everything to damn and destroy the island’s Tamil population and connive to steal their land and then wonder why the Tamil do not like them, scorn them.

                You idiot genetic cannot prove a race. This is well established proof established by Scientist. Only immediate kith and kin like father, son, siblings can be proved. Al-faqurlah I do not know whether you an Tamil/Sinhalese/Borah/Shia, can you give details of this proof like % of variants and each variant establish what. If you know the genetic make up of Moors, you should know the sources also and you also know these Arab traders co-habited with low caste so give genetic proof of this too. If you don’t give I will consider you as a third rate low caste, illiterate donkey.

              Keep on desperately lying but no one believes in you. You will shamelessly claim every other culture and ethnicity as yours other than you real Tamil Dravidian origin and culture.
              You speak Tamil and no other language Arabic Gujarati not even Sinhalese even in Sinhalese majority areas( only now for political convenience)followed Tamil culture and had Tamil Muslim caste/family names until very recently. Eg. Marrikar, Rawther, Lebbai, Kutti, Thambi, Kayalar etc. Everything about you reeked of Tamils. Not Arabs not Moors, not Gujarati or any other North Indian not Sinhalese nor Malayalee. In fact your ancestors were derogatively called Thullukans in Kerala and were kicked out of there for being ethnic Tamil Muslims. They did not kick out their own ethnic Malayalee Mappila Muslims, as they were part and parcel of them.

              That Saree is not Gujarati it is the same standard saree worn by the Tamils and Sinhalese and other Indians the only thing is the Pallav covers the head. Unlike the south of India the North Central and western parts of India was heavily influenced by Islam, therefore even Hindu women in these regions cover their heads. Got it.
              It is the Tamil mother and culture that gave birth to you people. The language you speak the culture you followed and even the form of Islam. Now got Arabised in the last 20 years and want to kill the feast on the Tamil mother that gave birth to you in the name of Wahhabi Islam and Arabism. Disgusting

          contd

          Despite 72% of them living amongst the Sinhalese and only 28% amongst the Tamils, notice they only want huge chunks of Tamil lands to create Islamic homelands, but dare not ask for anything in the Sinhalese areas, as they fear the Sinhalese armed forces, police and the establishment.
          They think the Tamils are weak and now without any help from anyone, so funded by certain Gulf Arab states and Porkistan, this is the best time aggressively claim get way with stealing huge chunks of Tamil lands for a Salafist Islamic homeland for their immigrant fake Arab/Moor Dravidian community from South India.
          Now even Sinhalese have become with this aggressiveness’ and Arabisation. Arabic and the Arab culture is alien to the island. No one ins against you being Muslim or Islam. You can be a good proud Muslim following the Sri Lankan Tamil culture that is part of the island and your actual origin and culture, which is very rich. the 5 million Tamil Muslims in Tamil Nadu do this and they are accepted. If you want to be a Muslim and a Tamil we will accept you however if you want to be some Arabised Salafist, who wants to destroy Tamil and import an alien language and culture we do not want you. You are no part of us. Go to Saudi Arabia Syria or Iraq and see whether they accept you.
          Instead of blaming others look at yourselves. You created the problem for yourselves by not willing to accept who you actually are Dravidian Tamils who converted to Islam with a little bit of Arab. Instead of blindly claiming a fake Arab/Moor origin and to justify this lie, pathetically aping them

            In my UK days and regular visits to Speakers’ Corner at London’s Hyde Park in the week-end, I used to enjoy the competition between the Jewish Speakers and Arab Speakers. This was popular with all young students from the Colonies – studying then in London.

            The Jewish speakers used to remind from the stage Ishmael was the illegitimate son of Abraham and his maid Hagar. Abraham’s wife Hagar was childless. The Israelis say Ishmael was the first Muslim and, therefore, all Muslims since then are bas…rds.

            Rohan commented in this forum Dravidians/Tamils are not Australoid but basically a Caucasoid people, however there is significant Australoid elements amongst their lower castes. Caste has nothing to with race and further says Indians are not Australoid but Veddoid but this fool does not know both refer to same people. There are research papers by anthropologists and you refer these to enlighten yourself. Invasion of Arab culture and trade took place within 1000 years although there are proof Arabs travelled to this part of world on trade and exploration during pre-Islamic time also. To comment Marrikar, Rawther, Lebbai, Kayalar were trading communities and are not Tamil names but grouped under Tamil Muslim. These refer to Arab, Persian and Turkish descend trading community in India. Most of these people settled down in India and married local women so later basically a mixed race. Marikkar were marine merchants and known as boat people in Malabar and they even served as admirals in Zamorin’s army and even in Sinhala King’s army in Sri Lanka. These people broadly known as Malayalam or Tamil Muslims with divergent ancestries and historical connections to Arabia, Iran and North-east Africa and adapted their own version of Malayalam and Tamil languages. Sri Lankan Moors too were like that. Kutti (girl) and Thamby (brother) are not names. Those traders of Turkish mix retained their Fez and Ceylon Moors to wear Fez for occasions. These Turkish origin people were known as Turrukiyar in Tamil and Malayalam and later became Thullukar. They may call Thullukan in a derogative way like Sinhalese call Demala as Demalaya but the fact is this Turkish race 100% better than the Australoid origin Tamil race or Malayalam race. It was these group of Muslims brought trading methods and trade to India and Sri Lanka.

            Muslim merchants sold 4 yards of cloth to wrap around your waist which became vessti for you. 6 yards of cloth to women which they wrapped around and tucked 2 yards over the shoulder to cover the breast. Still you can see Tamil old women bare breast without jackets. So lot of things you learned from Muslim merchants. Older Moor women wore saree in a different way so by pulling from up you can cover the head completely. I wrote Gujarati women too wear like that not because we are from Gujarati. Arabic culture to Sri Lanka. Arabic and Arabic culture is in Sri Lanka for more than 800 years. First think Muslims family do is teaching their young children is Arabic Alphabets and to read Quran and also follow Islamic culture. Marriage ceremony are completely different from Tamil culture. Our Thali is a necklace with a pendant not a holy thread or thread like gold although word is burrowed from Tamil. Muslims everywhere in the world take necklace set and ring to bride during wedding. Our food are never thosai, Idli or sambar. Our way of cooking rice and curry is completely different from Tamils or Sinhalese. Just because we speak an adapted Tamil mixed language you cannot brand us having Tamil culture. You can see minorities adopting different languages all over the world. One example is in America. British used Tamils as slaves but Moors because they cannot. Moors were trading community and not slavish type. Beside they will rebel and within years they will own their estate and will establish separate estates. Most of the toilet cleaners in Middle-east, Malaysia, Singapore are Tamils not Moors. Many difference shows comparatively we are miles apart. So do not bring fabricated stories and try to show your superiority.

      ‘The hate campaign of the BBS that was obviously foreign funded and foreign backed’ – What kind of nonsense is this. BBS was funded by Mahinda/Gota money. They are starving now without the funds.

      Foreign funds are only reaching Muslims to buy lands, build mosques, give birth to many babies etc., for Muslims to take control of Sri Lanka. Do you call this Islamaphobhia? People like you wish to cover up the inherent and the foreign funded Islamic agenda in Sri Lanka.

      RE:On Countering The Islamophobic Hate Campaign

      Interesting Hypothesis, but you do have support and evidence for your hypothesis of Islamophobic Hate Campaign.

      Q1.,The real question to ask is whose self-interest is being served? Israel, Christian Fundamentalists, Norway etc.

      Q2. Then who are the Agents towards promoting the self-interest? BBS, Katikaran, Backlash, Soma, Lester etc.

      It is rather unfortunate this these Tamils, are serving the self-interests pf outsiders, at the expense of particularly Tamils, and the people of Sri Lanka in general. Therefore, Katikaran. Backlash.,Lester. Soma, etc. should be properly classified as whores and traitors to the Tamil people in-particular and to all the people of Sri Lanka in general.

      You have asked and answered both questions.

      Expose, expose and expose.

        The Tamils Need a reformer or reformers to kick the Hindu Castism Tradition.

        Perhaps Pristine Buddhism,( not Sinhala “Buddhism”), or Agnosticism or Atheism, may be solutions, towards an egalitarian society, away from castist Hinduism.

    Izeth Hussain:

    Are the following wrong ? is is hate and islamophobia too ? Do you say all muslims are saints ?

    The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called ‘hypocrites’ and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.

    Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing… but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun(the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)” (Translation is from the Noble Quran)

      People in glass houses keep throwing stones.

      Bruce Feiler writes that “Jews and Christians who smugly console themselves that Islam is the only violent religion are willfully ignoring their past. Nowhere is the struggle between faith and violence described more vividly, and with more stomach-turning details of ruthlessness, than in the Hebrew Bible”.[8] Similarly, Burggraeve and Vervenne describe the Old Testament as full of violence and evidence of both a violent society and a violent god. They write that, “(i)n numerous Old Testament texts the power and glory of Israel’s God is described in the language of violence.” They assert that more than one thousand passages refer to YHWH as acting violently or supporting the violence of humans and that more than one hundred passages involve divine commands to kill humans.[9]

      Dim Jimmy,
      Here is a quote from your Mahavamsa holy book:
      When the arahants in Piyangudipa[29] knew his thought they sent eight arahants to comfort the king. And they, coming in the middle watch of the night, alighted at the palace-gate. Making known that they were come thither through the air they mounted to the terrace of the palace. The great king greeted them, and when he had invited them to be seated and had done them reverence in many ways he asked the reason of their coming. `We are sent by the brotherhood at Piyangudipa to comfort thee, O lord of men.’ And thereon the king said again to them: `How shall there be any comfort for me, O venerable sirs, since by me was caused the slaughter of a great host numbering millions?’

      `From this deed arises no hindrance in thy way to heaven. Only one and a half human beings have been slain here by thee, O lord of men. The one had come unto the (three) refuges, the other had taken on himself the five precepts.[30] Unbelievers and men of evil life were the rest, not more to be esteemed than beasts. But as for thee, thou wilt bring glory to the doctrine of the Buddha in manifold ways; therefore cast away care from thy heart, O ruler of men!’

      So the Buddha’s doctrine can spread by killing millions?

            mahawamsha says humans can sleep with lions. Now it’s a common practise for older monks to abuse younger monks. When there are no younger monks available in the village side young girls or even goats are abused. I can understand abusing goats because beastslity is permitted in our holy book, Mahawamsha. But I can’t understand how is homosexuality and abuse of minor is permitted.

            Men cross dressing in Dalit communities in north India is common. But how come our monk cross dress as drag queen in safron sarees ? Even the Dalits wear a blouse to protect their dignity. Monks don’t wear a blouse, is it because they have no dignity ????

                In this version, Vijaya’s grandmother is a princess, whose ancestry is traced to the Vanga and Kalinga kingdoms (present-day Bengal and Odisha). She bears two children with Sinha (“lion”), who keeps them in captivity in a forest. After the princess and her two children escape from the captivity, her son Sinhabahu kills Sinha. Prince Vijaya is the son of the lion-killer Sinhabahu, who is the founder of a new kingdom called Sinhapura.

                  You can tell this myth to any Sinhalese person and they will not attack you. What happened in Paris when Charlie Hebdo drew some pictures (cartoons) of Muhammed? What about Salman Rushdie, why is there a fatwa on his head? When Pamela Gellar held a contest to draw pictures of Muhammed, two jihadis came and tried to shoot the place up, luckily they were stopped. There is another fatwa on Swedish cartonnist Lars Vilks:

                  “He holds up his cell phone. “It’s filled with death threats,” he says, calling up his saved text messages. “This one is quite poetic. Minimalistic.” It reads “Du ska do,” Swedish for “thou shalt die.”
                  Four years ago, an Iranian al-Qaeda group issued a fatwa calling for Vilks’ assassination and offering a $100,000 reward. “If you kill me with a knife, you get a $50,000 bonus,” he says drily.”

                    Why don’t you look up your sacred Wikipedia for “Kamikaze pilots”. They were suicide bombers long before Muslims, and Buddhists according to you.

I am an atheist too but I am fond of TOB (Teachings of Buddha) like Lester. There is no creator God in TOB. An atheist by definition is someone who disbelieves or lacks belief in the existence of God. So, one can be an atheist and still be a follower of Buddha and his Dhamma.

                      May you be happy and content on this Wesak Day!

                      OC, Romani
                      Against common belief here, Buddhism is a minority religion in Japan. It is has many sects (mostly Mahayana followed by Tantric Buddhism) and has rather complex practices, and declined under Meiji rule which encouraged
                      Shinto, the oldest religion followed by over 50%. Shinto is strongly ritualistic with strong militant streaks.
                      In China, from where it spread eastwards, Buddhism is practiced by an even weaker minority. there too it is mostly Mahayana followed by Tantric systems.
                      Oriental people have influences of Taoism and Confucianism besides Buddhism; and respecting the Buddha does not make one a Buddhist. Admirably, Buddhism is not a proselytizing religion.

                      Hinayana majorities exist in Thailand, Myanmar and Sri Lanka. Sadly, in Myanmar and Sri Lanka it has become political and militant during the past century.

                      Political patronage was the curse of all religions, not Buddhism alone. Political Buddhism like Political Islam, Hindutva and Political Christianity are anti-people practices.

                      By the way Emperor Asoka after being converted to Buddhism employed an army of religious police to enforce what he thought was right for the people.

Of course he is not a model monk bu any standard. But look at his build, the hard muscles. He is warrior monk. May be even the reincarnation of one of the Dasa Maha Yodayas.

                      Gnanasara doesn’t make the laws. The Sri Lankan Constitution mentions Buddhism 2 or 3 times. The Saudi Arabian Constitution mentions Islam at least 300 times. A non-Muslim has very few rights in UAE or the Sunni Gulf states. This is the dirty game they play. They will import housemaids from Phillipines, Bangladesh, etc., then take their passports away. Because the Sharia law does not favor women or non-Muslims, it is easy to abuse them.

              If you claim the book is based on ‘possibilities’ events such as Indian invasion and arrival of Budism in Sri Lanka are also ‘possibilities.’ May be the book just considered some possibilities and failed to account for other possibilities, because the author didn’t have the modern technology to deduce other possibilities.according to your logic, it is also possible that Budhists invaded Sri Lanka and attacked the well established Tamil kingdom. It is a possibility. You cant cherry pick what is suitable for you and ignore others as ‘possibilities’ from Mahawamsha.

              The Budhist monk who wrote it must have a wild imagination of bestiality or may be bestiality was his fetish. Still bestiality is a fetish among lankan monks in the village side. goats are monks favorite pick because it is not going to complain to the police, as opposed to humans

        lol, It’s an outright lie Hindus parsis bhudhists sikhs lived peacefully under muslim invaders, hindus only survived in majority becuase they outnumbered them not because they were tolerant and still they converted 45% of indian subcontinent into Islamic.
        In india muhammadan invaders and rulers destroyed 40,000 temples and built masjid upon them, millions of hindus were killed and converted, continous rebellions took place under them, muslims were only able to rule 150 years of almost whole india under mughals otheriwise they were confined to northen and northern west and central eastern india, they brought indian gdp world share from 50% to 25%, Marathas nealry conquered 2/3 rd of india back from them and they didn’t destroyed a single masjid and built a mandir over it, there were constant attempts by muslim invaders to convert dar al harb to dar al islam and it’s written by muslim historians only while glorifying their jihad for d sake of allah.
        Sikhs were killed and converted in majority by Aurangzeb, jizya was imposed by him and strict sharia. Afghanistan was a bhudhists and hindu state but now it’s 99.99% muslim even the bamiyan budha was broken by jihadists, Crusaders and islamists were not different at all, both converted others in huge number and killed those who opposed and destroyed ther idols and places of worships.

          If Muslims coverted Hindus forcefully today Indian’s should be at least 70%.

    Israel pays and trains their people around the world $2000 to spew their lies and propaganda from the comfort of their homes, in websites that have articles mostly highlighting Israel’s crimes. Therefore they might use the same tactics to attack Muslims and Islam too. They have labelled all Palestinians as “terrorists” and get away with massacring thousands of Palestinians, blaming home made rockets and stones, while they use deadly bombs and the latest weapons supplied by the US.

    These filthy commenters who lie and try to project Israel’s false narrative about being victims of those they occupy, are called Hasbara. They are very active in US and UK website.
    It will be easy for them to do the same in Sri Lanka.

    “The National Union of Israeli Students (NUIS) has become a full-time partner in the Israeli government’s efforts to spread its propaganda online and on college campuses around the world.

    NUIS has launched a program to pay Israeli university students $2,000 to spread pro-Israel propaganda online for 5 hours per week from the “comfort of home.”

    The union is also partnering with Israel’s Jewish Agency to send Israeli students as missionaries to spread propaganda in other countries, for which they will also receive a stipend.

    This active recruitment of Israeli students is part of Israel’s orchestrated effort to suppress the Palestinian solidarity movement under the guise of combating “delegitimization” of Israel and anti-Semitism.

    The involvement of the official Israeli student union as well as Haifa University, Tel Aviv University, Ben-Gurion University and Sapir College in these state propaganda programs will likely bolster Palestinian calls for the international boycott of Israeli academic institutions.”

      True.

      I know one commentator in SL forums who is half Jewish and half Tamil. He was trained in an Israeli defence academy, worked in IDFs and later came to SL to do various things. He is a propaganda and military expert from Ben Gurionn and Mosshe Dyan university. He boasts about highly dangerous missions. He was with the government during the war. Later he fell over some weapons contracts and worked hard to get Sirisena elected. I can only imagine what he is capable of.

      But Israel is a friendly country. SL should have great relations with Israel. The problem is extremism on all sides. No one wants extremism.

      this has been going on for sometime, In addition, all the US Senators and Congressmen are bribed, to look after Israel’s interests. It is called AIPAC. In addition, the media is bribed too.

      Do you know how the JO and Mahinda Rajapaksa got crowds to his meetings? They were bused, gave free food and drinks and some money. See how the Sri Lanka media that was bribed by Mahinda Rajapaksa behaved. Not every citizen has the intelligence to see through these.

      Then how did Israel train BOTH the Sri Lankan military AND the LTTE at the same time?

      Israel also trained and armed the Syrian rebels in cooperation with the US, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

      Israel also attends to the wounded ISIS terrorists, which should make anyone wonder why.

      Israeli citizen over 18 years are conscripted to serving in the military. This is not the same as training non Israelis and totally different. Therefore it is not false.

The poor Palestinian people have been held under siege for over 50 years, and losing their lands every day.

    Those who disagree with my comments on Muhammed should offer a constructive rebuttal, rather than pointing to two Muslim dynasties and claiming the person of interest was a legend. These dynasties were tolerant of non-Muslims only because the non-Muslims (dhimmi) paid a special tax (jizya) to practice their religion. Further, conversion to Islam provided a pathway to climb the socioeconomic ladder, since the ruling class was exclusively Muslim.

    The fact is, Islam has contributed nothing to modern civilization. There are those who might argue Islam kept Western science alive during the “Dark Ages.” In reality, Islamic scholars simply translated pre-existing Greek and Latin works into Arabic. This is not a case of new knowledge being discovered; it is more along the lines of translating pre-existing works being translated into other languages.

      Lester,

      You are such an ignoramus. You say “Islam has contributed nothing to modern civilization”

      This is called the oven theory. The Arabs only translated the Greek and Latin works and kept them alive (hot in the oven) until the Europeans picked it up and developed.

      Please read Jonathan Lyons’ “House of Wisdom”. Everything we have now is from the Arab scientists, mathematicians and scholars.

      Al Khwarizmi (9th century) invented algebra to solve the mathematical problems posed by inheritance laws of Islam. He wrote “al-Kitāb al-mukhtaṣar fī ḥisāb al-jabr wal-muqābala”. When this work went to the West, they did not know what to call this mathematics. So, they used part of the title of the book “al-jabr’ and called it algebra. Algorithm that we use for computers comes from his name as Europeans did not know what to call that form of mathematics. Nicolaus Copernicus copied the works of Nasir ud din al -tusi and became the father of renaissance. You can see the diagrams of both Tusi and Copernicus at the University of Padua in Italy.

      If you read Jonathan Lyons with an open mind then you will be enlightened. That book recounts how every field of science was developed during the Arab Empire from 7th to the 15th Century. None are so blind as those who will not see. It is your prejudice that is preventing you from learning the truth.

        Chinthaka:

        You left out the most important part:

        “Al-Khwarizmi and his colleagues the Banu Musa were scholars at the House of Wisdom in Baghdad. Their tasks there involved the translation of Greek scientific manuscripts and they also studied, and wrote on, algebra, geometry and astronomy.”

        http://www-history.mcs.st-andrews.ac.uk/Biographies/Al-Khwarizmi.html

        See that word TRANSLATION?

        Al-Khwarizmi did not invent algebra. According to the Wikipedia:

        “The origins of algebra can be traced to the ancient Babylonians,[6][page needed] who developed a positional number system that greatly aided them in solving their rhetorical algebraic equations. The Babylonians were not interested in exact solutions but approximations, and so they would commonly use linear interpolation to approximate intermediate values.”

        “Ancient Egyptian algebra dealt mainly with linear equations while the Babylonians found these equations too elementary and developed mathematics to a higher level than the Egyptians.”

        “The Greeks created a geometric algebra…. Iamblichus in Introductio arithmatica tells us that Thymaridas (c. 400 BCE – c. 350 BCE) worked with simultaneous linear equations.”

        There are also Chinese and Indian explorations into algebra.

        What about Islamic algebra?

        “The Muslim Abbasid caliph al-Mamun (809–833) is said to have had a dream where Aristotle appeared to him, and as a consequence al-Mamun ordered that Arabic translation be made of as many Greek works as possible”

        Did I not say in the previous post, the Arab “scholars” did very little other than translate?

          You are quoting form Wikipedia, which is not allowed to be used by High School teachers in the West. It is not considered scholastic work. So, your knowledge is derived from sources which are not even considered to be correct by High School students!!!

          You have to read the works of the scholars.

          It is true the Arabs first translated all the known knowledge of the time. This is was in the 8-9th century. Thereafter they developed every field of science.

          Have you read Adelard of Barth, the first scientist of the West. He wrote extensively on the advancements made by Arabs during the Arab empire (8-15th century).

          Sir Isaac Newton said “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants”. He was clearly referring to the Arab scientists. In his book Principia Mathematica he refers to them by name (read it, you will be enlightened). If the Arabs only translated the works of the Greeks, then Ibn-al Haytham (al- Hayzan to the West) would not have come along and refuted all the theories of optics of the Greeks. One of the theory of vision of Greeks was that, “we are able to see because of light emitted by our eyes illuminating the object”. Ibn-al Haytham refuted this by experiment. He wrote a six volume book on Optics which disproved all the pre-existing theories of vision at the time. By the way Ibn-al Haytham is the one who invented the pin hole camera. This was in the 12th century.

          There are many examples I can give you but there is not enough space here.

          All I can say is go and read the scholarly work on the subject. Not Wikipedia which is banned in schools (in the West) as a resource for research students.

            “So, your knowledge is derived from sources which are not even considered to be correct by High School students!!!”

            What is written on Wikipedia can be confirmed by multiple other sources.

            Here is an extract from the Encyclopedia Brittanica:

            “Evidence from about 300 bc indicates that the Egyptians also knew how to solve problems involving a system of two equations in two unknown quantities, including quadratic (second-degree, or squared unknowns) equations….”

            “In addition to tables, many Babylonian tablets contained problems that asked for the solution of some unknown number. Such problems explained a procedure to be followed for solving a specific problem, rather than proposing a general algorithm for solving similar problems…”

            https://www.britannica.com/topic/algebra

            Your claim that the Arabs invented algebra makes no sense. Other civilizations were using algebra to solve systems of unknown equations and design structures with symmetry, such as the Pyramids in Egypt.

            “Sir Isaac Newton said “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants”. He was clearly referring to the Arab scientists.”

            No, Newton was referring to the ancient Greeks, particularly Aristotle. He was also referring to Galileo, as well as Kepler and Brahe. Newton and Galileo had many of the same ideas, especially when it came to mechanics. The difference is that Newton came up with the method of infinitesimals, e.g. he came to perceive mechanics as a system of differential equations.

              Unlike you Sir Isaac Newton was not prejudiced. He was freely borrowing from the work of Arab scientists of the time.

              In his book “Principia Mathematica” (which was in Latin first and then translated to English), he refers to the Arab scientists by name. He repeats the name of Ibn-Al Haytham (Al -Hazen in the West) in this work. Yet, you say that he was referring to the Greeks and some Europeans only. Such lies.

                  I will urge you to watch the below youtube. It is a talk by Professor Keith Moore, an expert on human embryology. He did extensive studies of the Quranic references to the various development and classification of the human embryo. He concluded “From history of embryology little was known about the staging and classification of human embryos until the 20th century. For this reason the description of the human embryo in the Quran cannot be based on scientific knowledge in the 7th century. The only reasonable conclusion is that these descriptions were revealed to Muhammad from God. He could not have known such details because he was an illiterate man with absolutely no scientific training”

Histories of Muslims’ translation of Greek and others works, Muslims invention in Mathematics and other fields were not researched and written by Muslims at the beginning but by European Scholars. They were people who go for facts and write facts. They have enough proof of Muslims inventors like old books etc. and some them were used until few hundreds years back as reference book in their universities. In the link you had given the experiment on Inflection and diffraction of light by Newton, that is sending a light through pin hole, he accept it was performed before although not whom. Passing light through a pin hole and the image on opposite side (first step of invention of Camera) first experimented by Ibn-Al Haytham. Donkey go to the link I have given to study the 1001 inventions of Muslim. This is not fake work but UNESCO and 1001 Inventions was launched in January 2015.

    Who said Israel gives “military training” to ‘foreigners who come to work’?

    A Report in the Ceylon Today of 17th August 2013 was quoted according to which Sri Lankan workers going to Israel were given training in Military Camps in Sri Lanka BEFORE their departure. NO mention was made of what happened in Israel as far as these workers were concerned.

    Please STOP making BASELESS allegations to DISTORT Facts.

    Mr Hussain F,
    First of all if say the BBS is foreign funded for spread out Islamophobic hate campaigns, you have to prove it with proper evidence.What are the countries funded, bank details, how much they have been funded, to whom have been authorized to use the funds.
    If not the BBS should go to legal actions against you.

    Yes we have phobia on Muslims, because there are plenty of phobias your people have granted us.
    Cut of trees in Vilpaththu and making it Muslim colony. (Why only Muslims why cant bring some other religious poor peoples and make houses for them)

    Mr. IH

    As a very senior diplomat,you should not rite fairy tale or half truth or fabricated lies. whatever you mentioned in your writings should be able to prove theoretically. otherwise we can say you are suffering from truth phobia, or you are a truth phobic. going through all your recent articles here I can say you are a truth phobic.if you think you muslims are arab descent. prove it theoretically with historical events. yes sri lanka was the trading centre in silk route. traders from all over the world came here.but we can not see any chinese pocket or greek pockets or any other pocket here like muslims pocket.muslims are totally alienated community from rest of other communities. nothing common rituals or traditions.all speak tamils. as such you can not say sinhalese mother pluse arab father childrens.no common rituals not related to any religions.at birth of a child ran kiri kata gama is the unique ritual of sinhalese nothing to do with buddhism. wearing a amuda at peddy fields work too is unique tradition of sinhalese nothing to do with buddhism.as such you muslims came here as community from south India with all the rituals and traditions.cooking kiribath at any special occasions is another tradition of sinhalese.I do not think any muslims live in the south is doing that. making kaum is another ritual. but muslims laugh at it saying sinhalaya modaya kaum kanna yodaya.

    I do not know about all this stories about Israel funding this and that. BUT Mr.IZETH HUSSAIN…I have a simple question: The Muslims in Sri Lanka are a minority so why are they refusing to support the Christians in their struggle to defend, establish, consolidate and expand the rights of minorities in the state of Sri Lanka and how come the muslims CYNICALLY utilized the struggle of the JAFFNA TAMILS for their rights as a minority in order to curry favor with the sinhalese majority and further their own Islamic and economic interests…?

      It is conventional wisdom arguing with someone who is clearly mentally imbalanced, is futile. I, therefore, do not wish to respond to the growing personal attacks from Hussain.

      The ageing “Prophet” proves to all of us the old adage an idle mind is a devil’s workshop. This is a truism for all time. He relishes in raking up unnecessary rubbish – as we see once more in his latest piece. As I mentioned in my last posting, I do not want to confer legitimacy on the continuous ravings of a disturbed man who sees ghosts everywhere he turns. That is clear from the increasing number of “enemies” he makes with every article he writes these days
      fondly hoping some of them will be fried in hell.

      you came to outskirts of colombo yesterday.
      read the history of europe and the crusades of islam, catholic, patchwork anglicans.no matter what excuse politicians dream up for waging war, the underlying cause of all wars is economic in nature. catholic french and islam joined to fight roman emperor & christian england, catholic french and german joined to fight christian VOC for their fast ships and world trade.

        Walk along any lane .roads in any Muslims area in any country dirt all over spit every where ..this is what your Islam taught you ?
        While many European universities allow Islamic studies why the hell your Muslims countries can’t allow studies about other religion ?
        Simple reason is these blinds will know the truth and move to other religions .
        Just few weeks ago at one Pakistan university one Muslim student was massacred by his fellow students for his blogs against Islam..same happened at Bangladesh university….
        One Maldivian medical student was massacred at her Bangladesh university room simply she posed for a fashion magazine cover ..what is wrong with islam ?
        Same Islam allow Syrian,Iraq girls and women sell themselves in Jordan for money…Muslims Prostitutes in Egypt…Kenya…Moracco ..Tunis ? why ..
        Correct yourself before talking about other religion.
        Buddhism never preach to cut the neck of other religion followers ..or sell girls like ISIS do for Christian Yahidi girls in Syria .

    Izeth Hussain is jealous of Israel. You have so many failed Arab nations, and right in the middle is Israel. The Arabs, with a few exceptions (Shias), have rejected all forms of democracy. Gender equality, secularism, and a free press are foreign concepts. Governments stay in power via an iron fist, e.g. Machiavellian tactics; look at the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt or the coup staged by Erdogan. Despite unlimited oil wealth, most of the population is actually poor, thanks to unbridled corruption. The extremes in wealth cannot be seen anywhere else. For example, the Sultan of Brunei has 7000 cars worth $5 billion USD. To prevent mass uprisings, many Arab governments have offered their citizens generous subsidies. If oil prices remain low, these subsidies will gradually disappear, which is already happening in places like Saudi Arabia. Eventually you will see mass uprisings, even worse than in Syria.

    The real problem for the Arab nations is not Israel. The problem is that they are entrenched in a 7th century mindset. Mosque building and subsidizing jihad is more fun than creating real jobs. As I said, though, when the oil money runs out, you will have “Arab Springs” all over the place. Look what happened in Iraq after Hussein was removed. The Sunnis began supporting violent extremist groups, including ISIS.

    You cannot deny the role that Islam plays in the Sunni Arab mindset. It is not just a philosophy, it is a complete way of life. That’s theonly explanation for why the Gulf states attacked Syria, even though Syria is an enemy of Israel! The Sunni Arabs want Wahhabism and Sharia, or some combination of the two, and this will continue to impede their progress, both economically and politically, as the rest of the world continues on a path towards atheism.

        “You have held that there is no such thing as Arab civilisation and that the Arabs are incapable of civilisation.”

        – Selling Yazidi women in the open market as slaves, crucifixion, stoning women to death in front of large crowds, throwing gays off rooftops, burning prisoners alive in cages, and beheading prisoners with kitchen knives for propaganda purposes.

        It is Arabs who are doing these things, though Izeth Hussein wants readers to think its Swedes. These things are only happening in the Middle East and North Africa, where Sunni Islam is the dominant religion, having been brought over by Arabs (what a coincidence!).

        These are the crimes committed by ISIS under the banner of Sunni Islam. The founder of ISIS, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, is a Sunni Iraqi cleric. Izeth Hussain wants to pretend ISIS has nothing to do with Islam, even though the founder of ISIS is clearly an expert on Islam. Of course, the civilized world is disgusted by these crimes, while Sunnis such as Izeth Hussain try to shift the blame to Israel and pretend ISIS has nothing to do with Islam. The fact is that ISIS wants to spread Sharia to every corner of the world, a fantasy shared by most Sunnis, including Izeth Hussein. That is why Sharia courts are popping up all over London, Berlin, Amsterdam, etc.

        Izeth Hussain should explain why the Sunni nations have done nothing to stop ISIS. He should explain why they are funding and arming ISIS, in a desperate quest to overthrow the legitimate government of Bashar Al-Assad and establish a medieval Caliphate. Izeth Hussein, the senile 2nd class diplomat, has no answers. He is stuck blaming Israel.

            “I can give you the facts. I can’t give you the ability to understand them. “
            because you yourself never understood facts but delved in `faith` The unquestioned acceptance of information that is either unverified or that may actually be in conflict with factual evidence.
            Islamic faith is the incubator of wars- crusaders from concept stage.

            “The IS has been rejected with horror as utterly un Islamic by every Muslim group including the Wahabis. That’s understood and accepted by Western leaders, and indeed by the rest of the wide wide world. “
            “Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham”
            Isis, Isil, IS or Daesh? One group, many names.
            Pakistan, Bengal, has many names for its Islamic terror, Iran, Lebanon, Palestine, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, each have many names for Islamic terror So undoubtedly its more than coincidence that islam means I_slam humanity.Terror by design of Faith the emotion than rational thought.

            Euphemistic expressions have replaced the word Islam. The latest euphemism is a reference to a regime change in Middle east Sunni-shia- Bombastic Boris said it right to the King of Saudi- Sunni Shia but Vicars daughter crusader was quick to say it was not her governments because she wanted 5% Aramco sale to take place at London not Wall Street.

            In this instance, one theocracy faith determines to liberate another country from its politicians. If euphemisms are clearly inappropriate, Islamist merely declare that the war is morally just and necessary to straighten out morally inferior miscreants.
            you are a farce unto you self and receive the benefit of the doubt from the newsroom owner (sic) because your days are numbered in this life- nothing else and it is difficult to envision anything else from the adverse comments you receive in fact much more than former ambassador DJ himself a bigot.

            Dear Izeth Hussain:

            There are big gaps in your logic. For example, you have tried to distance ISIS from mainstream Sunni Islam, yet you are unable to explain the large number of ISIS recruits (50K alone from Europe). Or why ISIS set up their capital, Raqqa, only 9 hours away from Turkey, which clearly shows Turkish support for the group. The “fact” is that the Sharia practiced by ISIS is only a slightly more extreme form than that practiced by normal Muslims. The “fact” is that Islamic jurisprudence (Sharia) is seen by Muslims as superior to all other laws, regardless of where they live. And this preference has resulted in an inability to assimilate, which is responsible for the “Islamaphobia” that you blame on Israel.

      Here is an Iraqi Muslim scientist claiming the Earth is flat:

      “The Koranic verse that I have just recited attests to the fact that the Earth is flat.”

      “No verse in the Koran indicates that the Earth is round or that it rotates.”

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5almZZU7ahk

      The man’s argument is that blurry objects appear round from a distance. When asked about the relationship between the shape of the Earth and say, lunar and solar eclipses, his response is that the sun is smaller than the Earth.

      So, this is the great “civilization” that Izeth Hussein claims we are indebted to. They have not even figured out the correct shape of the Earth.

        Ignoramus,

        If the Quran said that the world was flat, then how come Al-Beruni calculated the circumference of the earth, in the 11th century, so accurately? His calculation was that only 16km lower than the current known estimate of 6,356.7 km. So people who knew Arabic, knew that the world was spherical. Westerners did not until the arrival of Galileo Galilie.

        Al-Beruni was a polymath and an expert on Islamic Law.

            Al-Beruni and all scientists of the Arab empire knew Arabic better than anybody else. They knew the meaning of the above verse clearly. In the 11th century he calculated the circumference of the earth. If he was wrong he should have been punished by the King. No, even the kings at the time knew that the world was spherical.

            However Galileo Galilie was punished, 5 centuries later, for proclaiming that the world was spherical.

            Al-Beruni was a great scholar. But he was Persian, not Arabic. Unlike the Arabs, Al-Beruni and the Persians did not claim their scientific knowledge came from the Quran or Allah. Al-Beruni studied with other scholars, particularly Indian scholars. The Indians knew of the number pi. To calculate the circumference of a circular or spherical object, the pi value is essential. So it could well be the case that Al-Beruni learned about pi from the Indians and then applied it to calculations of the circumference of the Earth. Al-Beruni was not the first to make this calculation. According to the Wikipedia, “Eratosthenes calculated the circumference of the Earth without leaving Egypt. He knew that at local noon on the summer solstice in Syene (modern Aswan, Egypt), the Sun was directly overhead.”

            So, back to the original question. What are the great ARAB achievements claimed by Izeth Hussain? If there are only 170-340 million Shia Muslims, and they are vastly more successful than the Sunnis, then it confirms my original thesis about the incapabilities of the Arabs.

              Lester the Liar,

              I did want to answer your claim about Al-Beruni. But it would have meant that a lie would go unchallenged.

              You say “The Indians knew of the number pi. To calculate the circumference of a circular or spherical object, the pi value is essential. So it could well be the case that Al-Beruni learned about pi from the Indians and then applied it to calculations of the circumference of the Earth”

              This is such a lie. Al-Beruni was so advanced in his mathematics he did not use pi. He used the sign formula to calculate the circumference of the earth. He climbed a mountain near a sea and measured the dip angle using an astrolabe and he applied to the law of sines formula. He also made use of algebra in his calculation. A = Highest point of mountain B = Lowest point of mountain h = Height of the mountain C = Lowest point of true horizon visible from point A O = Centre of Earth α = Dip angle r = Earth’s radius Solution: The angle AOC = α. AO=(r+h) is the hypotenuse in triangle AOC. r=(r+h).cos(α) Then the right side can be simplified to find r. r=h.cos(α)/(1-cos(α)”

        There are no cows / buffalos in Arab countries ..the climate is not suitable
        But Muslims eat beef saying this was preached by the scientist who invented TIME MACHINE called Islam which will take the followers back to 4th century.
        The truth is Moguls who invaded India slaughterd cows for food to their soldiers …thus this beef eating habit came .
        Arabs ate Camel flesh…use camel urine as medicine..during the time of Scientist.

          Halal practice comes from the Jewish kosher ritual, just like circumcision was also borrowed from the Jews. The only variation is that the executioner must face Mecca when slaughtering the animal. There is very little originality in Islam, it is just a hybrid of Christianity and Talmudic Judaism.

            Also Jews bury their dead ones wrapped in white cloth before sunset…and Jews wear caps …

            Koran is 100% carbon copy of 3000 years old Jewish book TORAH,

            these theories live in 4th century talk bullshit that their Isulam is the real .

            In a Church services during Sunday mass priest talk about todays problem and solutions ..even mention about the suffering of Arabs because of wars and collect money to help them.

            At mosques Imams living in Stone Age recite 4th century Koran …..specially about how the Scientist told his son to divorce his wife and marry her …that is he married his daughter-in -law…

              Exactly. There were many Jews, Hindus, and “polytheists” living in the Arabian peninsula during Muhammed’s time. Muhammad was a member of the Quraish tribe, which controlled the Kaaba in Mecca. The Quraish were polythesists. They worshipped the gods Hubal, Manaf, Isaf, and Na’ila. After Muhammed conquered Mecca, he removed the 360 idols at Kabaa. But Kabaa is really a shrine for Hubal, the pagan god. Muhammed tried to erase the history by claiming he is a “prophet”, and borrowing various stories he learned from Jews and Christians during his time as a camel driver/merchant.

                1000 years before the Isulam …KAABA was a place of worship .for Hindus..Christians..Jews ..and people went on pilgrimage there…it was believed praying at Kaaba will give a child to parents who have no kids…..

                Strange today non-Muslims can’t enter this area….
                But in Vatican they have built a church simply for Arab leaders to pray during their visit….
                In 100% Buddhist Japan there is a mosque in Tokyo for muslims to part.
                But even a photo copy of Bible is not allowed in many Arab countries ….so civilized Isulam

                High class Arab women look like Europeans with white skin …indeed these people are decedents of Jews after slaughtering Jews ..Arabs raped their women and a new generation created.

                The real Arabs are dark skin people love to eat camel flesh..drink camel milk..wash hair with camel urine.

                Arabs never had civilization ….now dance too much because of oil money …

                  Even the Nazis had an interest in history; for example, they sent delegations to Bolivia and Tibet to perform research.

                  These Wahhabis are so stupid they needed weeks to blow up the Bhamiyan Buddha statues:

                  “The statues were destroyed by dynamite over several weeks, starting on 2 March 2001,[40][41] carried out in stages. Initially, the statues were fired at for several days using anti-aircraft guns and artillery. This caused severe damage, but did not obliterate them. During the destruction, Taliban Information Minister Qudratullah Jamal lamented that, “this work of destruction is not as simple as people might think. You can’t knock down the statues by shelling as both are carved into a cliff; they are firmly attached to the mountain”

                  Hehe, did not know its carved into a mountain. They are used to chopping heads with one go, it shows that whoever made these statues is a genius compared to these fools. They could not finish the job in one go, so they fired a rocket at it:

                  “After one of the explosions failed to completely obliterate the face of one of the Buddhas, a rocket was launched that left a hole in the remains of the stone head.”

                  Do you know how stupid they are? They see a plane coming and yell “Allah Ackbar” (https://www.liveleak.com/view?i=b36_1395944414).

                  Even in places like Dubai, they will arrest couples for a simple kiss on the beach. In Saudi they will be lashed. In Syria (under ISIS) the woman will be stoned to death.

                  Now Izeth Hussain wants to claim these Arabs created civilization? Can you imagine, if Saudi Arabia was under Jewish control, instead of these 4th century tribals. What great things the Jews would contribute with their wealth.

    “Lester seemed sober and well-informed but he soon declared his dog-like devotion to Israel.”

    Izeth Hussein has a flair for sophistry, but the above statement should be corrected. I fully support Iran in its objective to obtain a nuclear weapon, a position which is at odds with Israel. A nuclear armed Iran will curb Sunni/Wahhabi ambitions in the region. Iranians don’t have the primitive mindset which the Arabs possess; a strong Iran can bring stability to the entire region. This is the role that should have been played by Turkey, but Turkey can barely honor its commitments to the EU. Turkey is also funding mosque construction (for example, in Germany) and jihad in Syria, while opposition members sit in jail after Erdogan’s staged coup.

    Another point to make. The removal of Saddam Hussein left a vacuum in the Middle East. One result was the emergence of violent groups like ISIS. Another was protracted attempts by Saudi Arabia to spread Wahhabism in the region. When the Wahhabis finally came to Syria, Iran had to intervene. Otherwise Lebanon would have been next and no allies for Iran in the region. That is also what the Americans and Israel wanted, though Izeth Hussain may not admit it. To isolate Iran and then weaken it and then finally invade it on some flimsy pretext like “chemical weapons.” If Russia had not intervened, this is the scenario that would have played out.

    Whether the Arabs can be reformed remains to be seen. As I said earlier, despite their massive oil wealth, they have a tendency to revert to “Sharia” and other silly outdated ways of thinking. A strong Iran is the only “hope” for the region. Israel is insignificant, it does not have the numbers or the influence.

    Saudi Arabia is actually an Israeli puppet state. Most Sunni muslims i know (including most Sri Lankan muslims) wont readily admit to this fact.
    But i know many whistleblowers and conspiracy theorists across the world who have exposed Saudi as a zionist Israeli owned state.
    ISIS for example receives its funding from Saudi Arabia and its military training from Israel.
    Ironically the Shias whom the Sunni hate for the most part are not influenced by Israel like the Sunnis, at least not to such a degree. This is why Israel absolutely hates the Shia controlled countries (Syria, Lebanon and Iran).
    And yes Saudi has been sending fanatics to Sri Lanka for some years now. Once again our Island haajis are trying to hide this fact but their own behaviour gives them away. When that Sufi mosque was attacked by some Sunni hardliners in Beruwala it was a real eye opener. I have also heard of many sectarian clashes of this nature in the east of Sri Lanka.
    The Somali woman Ayyan Hirsi Ali has done presentations on how Saudi is sending agents across the world to radicalise muslims. Though she herself wont touch the Israeli connection

    The Islamophobia in Sri Lanka need to be analyzed instead of blindly taking shots at Israel, Saudi Arabia,Iran ,Sinhalese ,Tamils ,or other groups like shooting fish in a barrel.

    1) There has always been hate towards The Muslim Community by other community even during Sirimavo’s government through Dudley ,JR ,Premadasa ,DB,Ranil and Chindrika combi to Chandrika solo.

    But it really started growing to larger problem soon after the end of The Elam war during the reign of The Rajapakshes.

    The reason is very connected to The Islamic pure monotheistic belief,the religion of Abraham & definitely has nothing to do with Muhammad, it is not the religion of Muhammad- the foundation which is to worship none but Allah and not set up equals to HIM.’

    Then, We have inspired you (O Muhammad saying): “Follow the religion of Ibrahim (Abraham) Hanifa (Islamic Monotheism – to worship none but Allah )
    Cite;Quran -16 -123

    (Jewish equal- Eloah -The Mighty powerful one )

    Cite eg:Jewish Sh’ma Yis-ra-eil, A-do-nai E-lo-hei-nu, A-do-nai E-chad (O Israel, the L-rd is our G‑d, the L-rd is One)

    The only two Abraham’s Monotheist communities remaining in the world today who will not compromise this under any circumstance are The Fraternity of Muhammad and Moses both from the lineage of Abraham,The Muslims of all sects including Ahmedys, The Banu Israel of all sects of The Babylonian Judas(Jews) ,including the The banu Israels aka Samaritans (The ones who were able to stay back during The Babylonian captivity)

    Due to this fact,The Muslims can not integrate freely with people of other faiths or beliefs but can and do with exceptions,to expect the entire community to integrate shunning their foundation of faith is to go with the flow ,one must understand that “only dead fish go with the flow”

      update yourself first- Obama sold $ 60 billion in excess of Arms to Saudi before he left. So they would arm these jihadis and send them all over. They are selling 5% of Aramco for $1.6 trillion to invest in the war.

        Every latest weapon displayed in wars in Afghanistan..Iraq..Syria ….the first buyers are Saudies
        But 1000 s of crates are unopened at Saudi military stores because camel riding Saudies can operate these weapons …
        West know where to keep Arabs..he he he ..they are much smarter.
        These wars are to test their latest weapons …camel riding Saudies are not aware about this simple fact.
        Saudia Arabia and Kuwait are in the map today because of America ..not because of your Allah.
        When Saddam invaded Kuwait shivering Saudi Royals (???? once desert chiefs) consulted Mecca Imam what to do …after reading Koran Imam told them to allow US forces inside Saudi Arabia.
        It was the Americans who have explored oil in Saudi Arabia not mullahs .
        Saudi Arabia during 30 s has got one diplomatic mission in Cairo ..this mission is a shop and the owner was a Saudi who can’t read and write. an American business man visited him and arranged a visit to meet the Saudi king …after meeting he met the shop owner cum Ambassador and gave a list of names and asked him to select this uneducated Arab turn the page upside down and show a name ..he he he

        This is the time Saudies must go back to 30s. after Iran started to export crude ..Saudi first time turned to IMF for a loan…probably to pay mosques overseas to promote PURE ISULAM

          It is good business for the Americans. They sell the old weapons to Saudis. They don’t sell the latest (best) weapons to Saudis, since they know the weapons will go to jihadists. Best weapons are sold to Israel under a defense agreement.

            Yet Pakistan lost 2 wars to the Indian Air force in the valley though their MIGS weren’t superior. They also captured American pilots as POW who admitted that they were co-pilots only. little english don’t design those planes for America any more and there are a couple of Indians too designing.

              Even more than that, over the next 10 years, USA will give Israel $38 billion USD to buy American weapons. US is paying Israel to buy American weapons. Because Israelis are clever and can make improvements to these systems. 

              So you can keep whining about Islamaphobia and bending 5 times, Israel is the best military partner of the USA. Your Sunni friends will fight with the backside bombs only. Hehe.

    Trying hard to convince on this comment forum those who say to themselves we have made up our minds and refuse to see things in others perspective is a total waste of bandwidth and one’s time and energy and waste of good knowledge.
    Remember Prejudice die hard.

    What use is it to break your head-over to a completely prejudiced individual who is shamelessly willing to stand on his head and knowingly call what is white- black?

    Muslims must stop this emotional striving to convince the ones who’s heart is dead and mind is blind.

    Why should you bother to try so hard to convince tiny minds knowing they do not have the will or capacity to comprehend ,why bother at all when great minds of the opposite camp have already acknowledged it with so much of respect

    You see when a Muslim try hard to quote Muslim Scholars about his religion and his prophet there is always an excuse for the tiny minded to twist and turn and insult- it is a very integral sickness in such people while The Muslim can be proud and extremely happy to know that people of other faith and personal beliefs with great minds and of repute have gone out of the way to investigate ,study ,research and say nothing but the truth of Islam and its prophet, this is indeed a testimony no men of justice with no prejudice and with great minds will ever deny, so are jesters of the king’s Court who are nothing but fools worth wasting one’s time, energy & acquired knowledge ?
    Can they be ever compared with these great men and women of the opposite camp who believes in not withholding the truth of the religion and its Prophet and not letting Prejudice fog their minds of purity? .

    So if The Jewish Religion is so close to Islam did Islam really borrow it from The Jews ? and are all Jewish traditions Exclusively Jewish ?

    Well The Jewish religion as much as Christianity (although Christianity may differ in many ways) are both branches of The Milat al Ibrahim-religions that branched off from The religion of Ibrahim and still though may have some differences are still part of Abraham’s religion.

    It would be total ignorance to refer any of The Jewish ,Muslim or even some orthodox Christian traditions and rituals as Jewish, Christian or Muslim.
    They were already in practice since the time of Abraham, so it is Abraham’s,It is only obvious that Muslims and Jews should have similar rituals as they are both branches of Abraham.

    The problem is some people are so much filled with hate and prejudice they just want to find quickly whatever they can from google ,no investigation ,no research or study.
    Just comment as long as it can demonize the opponent.

    Muhammad came to re-establish The religion of Abraham and to purify it and thus he had to adopt some or most of its traditions too.

      “It would be total ignorance to refer any of The Jewish ,Muslim or even some orthodox Christian traditions and rituals as Jewish, Christian or Muslim. “

      Quite correct. All these religions have a common origin. That is why they are called Abrahamic religions. The real origins are even older, and go back to Mesopotamia. Various Biblical stories are to be found in Babylonian holy books, such as the Flood, Garden of Eden, etc.
      Debating whose religion is better is self-defeating, because all have skeletons in the cupboard.

    Izeth has a pathetically immature shallow mind – he looks old though.

    During the SWRD B era there was this “Sinhala” Marikkar. Izeth has adopted the same tactics to curry favour with a certain group. He writes what this group wants to hear, publishes in three places (his claim). Looks like he gets roasted by CT commenters. Is it because the CT commenters are more discerning?

    Some use unparliamentary words but this unfortunately is the Lankan foul mouthing tradition. In the April 29 post, Izeth called me “bestialized Islamophobic racist”. I brushed this aside. After all he uses words to the effect “Israel inspired dog” here.

    Izeth will use the comments here to whinge “Here is what “they” do to Sinhala Izeth.

    Izeth use this Vellala factor and a Tamil Nadu hidden threat to suggest that power must not be devolved. Yes TN received the refugees created by white-van terror. But last week 30 Rohingya Muslim refugees were taken into custody by Lankan Navy. Who ordered the Lankan Muslim MOAB silence? Is there racism here?

    Izeth tries to make out the Wirathu movement in Myanmar and the BBS as foreign inspired. He is clearly hiding the Rohingya genocide

    To cut a long long long story short: Izeth cut this newly found “Israel is the cause of all our ills”.

    My sincere advice to all Sinhalese and Tamils: forget your differences, forge a common bond. The enemy is fanatic Wahabi Islam, the fanatics are ready to devour Lanka economically and demographically. Every night Muslims engage in a battle to procreate as many children as possible while the poor Tamil and Sinhalese mothers make at most 1-2 babies and then undergo surgery to prevent them. You will lose your country to Muslims, who will encircle India with dragnet of Islam from future Islamic Republic of Lanka. You have at most 20 years left before Islam engulfs Lanka.

    Just look at Maldives, now an intolerant Wahabi fanatic infested archipelago. Not too long ago Buddhist Sinhalese colonized these islands. Their descendants are today the Jihadis, becoming more and more fanatic by the day.

    Izeth will reduce Islamophobia if he stops recycling his drivel. It may be good for him to keep writing so that dementia is kept away. But, he feeds Islamophobia as a result of his writings. Both Sinhalese and Tamils it seems have come to hate Muslims.

    Tamil Islamophobia is a contradiction in terms. Muslims are Tamils. They cannot be hating themselves. Tamils do not hate Muslims. Most of them speak more chaste Tamil than us.

    Hussain’s delusionary “Israel’s Islamic hate campaign” is a figment of his much disturbed mind. Local Islamists do not need anti-Muslim extremists from other groups to push them into negative light. Hussain is doing that well all by himself – as the increasing hostile comments from readers’ suggests.

    His list of two regular antagonists now increases to about six this week. As time passes, he would have named all those who even write a single sentence against him as “traitors to the country” His mad rage has only becomes worse.

    Hussain misleads the readers by talking of an Apartheid system in Israel. This kind of low, false propaganda can come out only from
    a warped mind. The fact is the Israeli Govt bribed corrupt Ethiopian ministers to help smuggle out by air thousands, a few years ago, dark-skinned Ethiopian Jews (Falashas). These people are now well settled and integrated there from a war-torn land where they had no future.

    “Muslims participated with Tamils in a hartal against the Government” When? Where? “Muslims being denied their lands” Again, when and where? Both are clear attempts by Hussain to regain sympathy of his community that has had enough of his “political analysis” and “diplomatic excellence”

    Does this enigmatic man secure any vicarious pleasure in calling his community names. Here again he repeats “Muslims are regarded as not much better than pariah dogs” Nobody suggested this. Why does he have to descend to this level – again and again.

    It is not so much reader Real Sarma who refers to Muslims as being former Hindu Dalits. Long ago it was one of the Ponnambalam Brothers who had historically traced this – an article that was featured in the CT and drew much comments from Muslims.

    The speculation Hussain suggests “Are there sinister foreign forces trying to foment another civil war in Sri Lanka, in which some of the Israeli-returned Sri Lankans could play a special role?” This is symbolic of Hussain’s conspiratorial and disturbed mind. Neither GoSL nor Israel would spend a minute worrying about this joke of an ageing non-stop trouble-maker.

      No time Kettie just now to deal with the whole of your drivel. So I will limit myself to the most important question about you and Backie which you have been refusing to answer.
      You hold me in utter contempt and savage hatred and you regard anything I write as not much better than verbal excrement.So why do you read me week after week, month after month, and year after year? Every article provokes from you hatred and rage. You suffer from my articles. Your attacks have not diminished my position as a writer. I began in the Island, which you found unbearable. Worse followed with their publication in the Colombo Telegraph and the Sri Lankan Guardian.Now the Sunday Island is serializing me.So what’s the point in going on flinging bucket contents at me every week.What’s the point when I make your bucket contents boomerang on your faces?
      There are only two conceivable explanations. You are a propagandist for a fundamentalist Christian group, and Backie for the Zionists. The other explanation is that both of you are masochists who enjoy the whackings I have been administering to you. I am willing to consider the second possibility if an appropriate medical certificate is provided. – IH

        Hussain,

        In fashion infantile you ask “So why do you read me” For the umpteenth time, It is because it is there in print; it is only in reading a writer one gets the idea if the writing is sensible, jaundiced or gutter like. Comprehendo??

        As to S/Island. Congratulations.

        Continue to have “a damned good time” (your words) while the readers are fated to a regular diet of ill-smelling verbal garbage.

          Poor Kettie is in a state of advanced ethnolunacy. He unbeleivably wants the reader to believe that he has been reading my “ill-smelling verbal garbage” every week for years “because it is there in print”. He has provided confirmation that he is acting as the agent of some Islamophobic group. Thanks Kettie. – IH

          Great reply kettie baby. When someone asked Sir Edmond Hilary, why he climbed Mt. Everest, his reply was similar, ‘Because it is there’. The climb brought him great fame.

          We all like to achieve great things. But dafren dafren people have dafren dafren ideas about greatness. In the case of kettie, it happens to be reading articles by IH and understanding them. (Something I would not do for a hobby).

          Sweetheart, we hope that reading IH articles would bring you fame. After all, though you work for Israel (at least, that is what IH says) you are Kettie the Ape Man.

      Kettie boy – yours of May 8 at 8.02 pm – The responses to my last few articles show that an intensive Islamophobic hate campaign is going on. Everyone knows that that campaign is going on on a world-wide scale, and that Israel and Christian fundamentalist groups are behind it.
      Are you really not aware of President Carter’s book on apartheid in Israel? Are you really not aware of Desmond Tutu’s judgment that that apartheid is worse than apartheid in South Africa?
      Muslims participated with Tamils in a hartal. Kettie boy asks where? when? Useless trying to educate him. The interested reader should consult Jehan Perera’s article in the Island of May 2.
      Kettie writes that I repeat “Muslims are regarded as not much better than pariah dogs”. He charges that I am calling my community names. I did no such thing. The depths to which Kettie can sink is unbelievable.He deliberately misquotes me. What I wrote was that the hate campaign against me can be wholly understood only if account is taken of an Islamophobic campaign that has been under way in pursuit of a “racist new world order in which the Muslims are regarded as not much better than pariah dogs”. Obviously I am referring to the Zionist view of Muslims, not my view. Kettie knows that but he deliberately misquotes me.He shows yet once more that he has no more moral scruple than has the rat, the dog, and the pig.It is an example of the bucket attack in which fact and reason does not count and only the flung filth does. -IH

        One question – out of sheer curiosity. Why do you go into diarrhea-mode when you see some of our names? You go berserk and lose your
        suspect mental equilibrium. Is this raw, naked anti-Tamil venom at work.

        The Tamil Nation will survive it, dear chap. But you will be remembered – for a long time.

          diarrhea-mode

          kettie, baby, perhaps, just perhaps, it is because despite all the external signs of hate he displays against you, Izeth really loves you and when someone like Izeth loves someone, the way he loves you, he loves that someone to have lots and lots of the things that someone loves – perhaps that is why the diarrhea-mode. Gulp it down baby. There is a lot more where it came from.

          Sorry kettie for breaking in. Just trying to help, OK?
