Recall Sri Lanka’s Ambassador To Israel, Donald Perera Immediately: Salley

Comments made by the Sri Lankan Ambassador to Israel, Donald Perera on the Israel-Palestinian conflict has sparked controversy that have prompted calls for being made to the External Affairs Ministry to recall him, immediately .

Ambassador Perera who was also the former Sri Lankan Air Chief Marshall, in an interview with Ynetnews – an Israeli media station – has pledged Sri Lanka’s staunch support for Israel in its fight against Palestine.

He has stated in the interview that Palestinians should be offered direct negotiations without preconditions and added, if they are not interested in a compromise, Israel should move on to a ‘military phase with full force’.

He had furthermore stated that Israel was a partner in Sri Lanka’s war against terror due to the relentless support they provided through the:

– exchange of information as well as military technology and equipment

– 17 Kfir warplanes and Dabur patrol boats

– pilot training and billions of dollars in aid over the past few years

Meanwhile, National Unity Alliance Leader and Western Provincial Councilor Azath Salley who has heavily criticized Ambassador Perera’s comments has described his statements to Ynetnews as ‘deplorable’ and ‘unacceptable’ due to the strong bonds of friendship, solidarity and goodwill between Sri Lanka and Palestine.

Pointing out that it was the Palestinian President Abbas who awarded Mahinda Rajapaksa with the award of the ‘Star of Palestine’ Salley has deplored the statements and demanded the External Affairs Ministry to recall him immediately.

Furthermore, he has urged the EAM to release a new statement to prevent further damage to Sri Lanka’s deep ties of friendship with the people of Palestine.

    Mahinda is double game player.
    A thief, A liar, A hardened Racist, A trickster, A stupid, Sports a fake smile….

    What Donald Pereras, Gnanasaras are talking Mahinda’s exact words. Those are words Mahinda’s words he is talking thru these low level bum suckers.

    Arabs must ask from Donald the bastard of who helped the economy for the last 40 years???? Is it Wirathu? Or Israel???? or the Muslim Arabs???

    Mahinda the double game mud skipper plays in public as if the entire world is full smutts.

    LET THE WORLD KNOW that SRI LANKA is a ANTI-MUSLIM TERROR state unleashing Islamophobic activity by the State and its leader Mahinda while getting all the support from Arab countries.

      In other words Mahinda is a superb politician. CBK, Ranil, etc don’t stand a cat’s chance in hell.

        However natural justice works in mysterious ways. Therefore don’t chance it.

          Is there such a thing as natural justice in SL. MR’s edicts would be more like it.

          Guys and gals,

          Don’t get worked up, get the Arab countries know the truth as to where Sri Lanka stands with respect to Arabs.

          Arabs may then decide to repatriate more than a million and a half Sinhalese workers in their countries, and instead employ Muslims.

          Remember the Sinhala rulers repatriated more than half a million Tamils working in tea estates for generations? If that is fair by the Sinhalese, surely they can’t object if Sinhalese workers are thrown out of Arab countries.

          Sri Lanka is siding with Israel so that they can subjugate not just Tamils, but Muslims also.

          Don’t you see the writing on the burnt out walls of the Muslims and the Tamils by the Sinhalese extremists, with the connivance of their regime and the state? They want a pure Sinhalese Sri Lanka.

          They don’t care if Arabs are under the jack boots of anybody, do they?

        @ Nimal: “…In other words Mahinda is a superb politician. CBK, Ranil, etc don’t stand a cat’s chance in hell”.

        YEAH, exactly. The bugger will be in the Royal Suite section of the HELL.

        Now, that he knows his DAYS ARE NUMBERED, the bugger has gone crazy. Because, all his life he lived a thug and a thief. He has used all his IRC tricks even on the International scene. He knows how many murders he has committed.

        Champika evil gangs have used maximum of their skills in keeping and carrying on with their SINHALA ONLY Zionist program to its ultimate level by converting many Leaders into their EVIL Project and committing them to implement their MURDEROUS PLANS.

        GAMMANPILA, hinted that they have planned a 1915 re-do just before the ALUTHGAMA genocidal attack.

        A group must be formed by the minorities combined with Tamil/Christian/Muslim+ all the victims of Mahinda to unleash —- to give them back what gave others.

        The supporters of Mahinda should be treated in the same way he treated others with his power. Gota must be dragged thru the cities of Sri lanka tied on to the back of a Defender Jeep once their power is gone.

        Poeple will come with creative ideas on how these bastards should be treated once the power is gone and they’re helpless.

        JHU gangs must be made to TASTE the same type of mob violence they perpetrate on others. If people let them live peacefully they will LET OTHERS DIE.

    In the two Srilanka’s we live in. Ambassador Perera. represents the Armed Forces Wing and chimes accordingly.

    Pres MR represents the other SL. He feels for the Palestinians and is a close ally of the Arab World.

    Perera, should not have opined. He is no career diplomat and can’t be expected to be Diplomatic either.

    There will be a press release from our Geneva Loss Peiris tomorrow saying that opinion of ex. Air Chief is not the Official Govt. position of Israeli and Palestinian conflict and that is his personal opinion. as a Democratic Country anybody can express their personal views and that is called freedom of expression.

    Don’t you know Mr. Sally our Govt. policy is “Wala yana paththata Massa Gahanawa” kiyala.

    If the Ambassador has actually made such statements he should be highly commended. Israel is SL’s natural ally, and SL should learn from Israel how to fight fanatical Moslems with full force. Above all else the strategies the Israelis have developed, their weapons, etc. should be of the highest importance to SL to keep the growing Islamic fanaticism at bay and to eventually crush them.

        Abdullah:

        Such “prophetic” words should have been directed to your Muslim leaders, who are supposed to lead the Muslims. By the way, do you find anything wrong with Donald Perera’s statement? How many statements came from the Muslim countries including Pakistan expressing their concerns on SL Muslims? The sinhalese MIGHTY ONE seems to have helped them to seal their position, what has YOUR MIGHTY ONE done to protect you people?

          We can only pray for those misdirected be leader or person of any faith

          Since when do we have to agree on faith or nationality to condemn atrocities,this is what Jays statement implies,it it s injustice,we should condemn it

          I have mentioned many a times how we saved over 250 innocent People during the massacre in 1983,I risked my life to save them and will always stand up for justice

          We cannot yours and mine separate Creator….There is only Supreme Being …whatever name called by different faith

      Jay, this is not about Muslims. This is about Palestinians. There are many Palestinians Christians who are in the cross hair of Israel. I have Palestinian Christian friends. They stand together with their fellow Palestinians to fight for freedom from the oppressor.

      I remind all, Jesus was Palestinian.

    It is none of Donald Duck’s Business to take sides in the Israel / Palestinian conflict;
    He must be having Hora dealings with Israel over military equipment buying so he is showing gratitude by putting his foot in his mouth.
    Surely the Jara Pakses must be also having a share.
    Hopefully the Islamists remember this incident and put his name on the no fly list. The MaRas are committing foul over foul and rapidly collecting Yellow cards. We would like to see them hit red very soon

    MR is undoubtedly an Israeli agent. That is how MR got elected as the President of the Palestine movement in Sri Lanka and the main crusader for Human Rights, where he deliberately deceived both positions. Trust Hammas or a radical Muslim will take care of him soon.

    Sarath Wijesinghe is the SL ambassador to Israel.

    Donald Perera retired 3 years ago!

    No newspaper interviewed either of them.

    Lets speak the truth during the holy Ramadan period. Is that asking too much?
