Reconciliation Is Not A Matter Of Ignoring A Cruel Past

While the Inaugural Session of the 2nd Parliament of the Transnational Government of  Tamil Eelam was being convened in New Jersey, USA, we received news of the passing of the great icon, Nelson Mandela, the embodiment of the aspirations of people yearning  for freedom.   He was not only a liberator of South Africa, but a liberator of humanity from the shackles of hate, oppression and racial prejudice.

The TGTE salutes and conveys its respect to a transcendental man who thrust human rights into the vernacular of the International Community. The TGTE also identifies with the mourning international community.

Nelson Mandela has been a symbol of the liberation struggle and its sentiments. He stands as testimony to the triumph of peoples’ struggles. He was a strong and resolute figure who fought against racism and discrimination, the evils of human nature that persist even until this day.

The man was labeled as a “terrorist” and sentenced to prison for twenty-seven years, but he succeeded in pushing the struggle of the South African people to the International community. Through his uncompromising style, he awoke the conscience of the world to the inequalities occurring in South Africa.

Even though Nelson Mandela was elected as the first black President of South Africa in 1994 and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and considered as a world leader, his name was not removed from the “Terrorist Watch List” by the US Government until 2008.  Why was there such a long delay? This demonstrates to us that the walk for change, walk for justice and walk for freedom is a long one.

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) set up by President Nelson Mandela in South Africa under the chairmanship of Archbishop Desmond Tutu was a mechanism to achieve a peaceful transition towards a race neutral democracy. However, as US President Obama mentioned in eulogy, “reconciliation is not a matter of ignoring a cruel past”, we firmly believe that TRC should not serve as an escape mechanism for accountability.

With this in mind, the TGTE passed a resolution in its Parliament on Sunday 8th December, stating that ‘in view of the primacy of accountability under International Law espoused by the International Criminal Court, calling for the establishment of a Truth and Reconciliation Commission in Sri Lanka should come after the birth of an independent and sovereign State of Tamil Eelam’.

However insurmountable the obstacles had been for him, Nelson Mandela’s life demonstrated to the rest of us that through fierce commitment to the cause, sacrifice, and determination, eventually we too shall prevail.

We, the people of Tamil Eelam, hold our hands in solidarity with all who yearn for freedom around the world. Let us rededicate ourselves to the long walk to freedom.in the footsteps of Madiba.

Long live his memory!

The thirst of Tamils is Tamil Eelam!!

    Unlike PM Rudra’s departed Leader, Mandela didn’t have blood on his hands , let alone killing one of his own by his own hands..

    ANC never went into White settlements and massacre innocent , Women , Children , and Apprentice Priests.

    Do you get it Mr Prime Minister ?….

      This bloody PM of Eelam in sky expecting it to come on to earth in a million light years ( i still doubt) says many things to grab any (He should) damn attention of Diaspora terrorists & sundry, but of no any use to ordinary men & women, so we should just ignore, whereas Mandela represented Majority community of South Africa in their struggle against minority white rule , resembling Sinhala race in Sri lanka fought against minority LTTE terrorists claimed to represent Minority tamils, brought down to Lanka only in 11th Century AD as mercenaries fighting against worrying Sinhala Kings & princes in Sri Lanka & were allowed to settle down here ,as they found a Heaven here as against poverty stricken South India.

      So This bloody A…hole Rudrakumaran is only pitting venom of an isolated / defeated terrorists who had made empire in sky , they themselves now cannot swallow, What apity for Diaspora Terrorists ???

      Exactly,

      Seven decades of cruelty by the Sinhala chauvinist run state to annihilate the Tamil nation in the island, which has accelerated since 2009 cannot be forgotten, or forgiven before justice is done to the victims, whether they be Tamils, Sinhalese or Muslims.

    Umkhoto we Sizwe (The Spear of the Nation) was founded by Mandela after the Sharpeville massacre to use violence in pursuing the struggle against apartheid. Now “white”washed, Mandela did espouse violence and condoned its use. Mr Sumanasekere should do more reading before he shoots off. There were stages in Mandela’s life and during some phases, he did advocate violence. Some would have it that the blacks would have been better off if the violent struggle had succeeded. Only history will tell. It is the same with India. There was a violent element in the Independence struggle. This is not to condone the LTTE. Their violence was purposeless and excessive. It was not directed by any sane policy. But, it is fitting that neither the TNA nor the TGTE nor the BTA or any other diaspora body advocates violence. They would be insane if they did.

      Kabaragoya,

      There are 300,000 thousand Tamils living in the Capital Colombo alone, including the whole Vellala out fit of the TNA..

      These inhabitants are doing very well now, thanks to the development, peace , harmony and the economic boom since Nanthikadal.

      They were spared the misery of the poor inhabitants in the North, who not only suffered Economically ,Socially , Mentally and Physically for 30 years but also ended up as Mr Prabakaran’s captives..

      The question is would they want to engage in violence now to help PM Rudrakumaran, Reverend Emmanuel and LTTE proxy Sambabdan?.

      Would these people want to jeopardize theirs and their childrens lives even if all these three mighty Politikkas ask them ?….

      Have you ever tried to plot a graph of the living standards and net worth of those Diasporians against their inhabitant cousins over the last thirty years?.

    Mr Rudrakumaran,I am extremely sad that the present Sri Lankan government has paved the way for your extremist views to surge again.They should taken that opportunity after winning the war to win the hearts of mass majority of Tamil people who are peace loving and law abiding. Their failure to express magnamity in victory has given enough doubts about their capability of solving this issue.However I personally reluctant to believe Tamil Ealem is the answer to the question. Even if that is the case, all powerful China from one side and our jiant neighbour from the other side will never let it materialise . I think time has come to wake up from our dreams and engage with whoever has the ability to solve the problem in s more realistic way.Dont think anyone in N and E would dare to see another blood shed. I am very certain about that.

          Unfortunately there is no remedy for making good the broken hearts. Heart transplant is the only solution. TGTE has its PM’s Fund to assist those who are in need of hearts by connecting them to pulsating machines in TGTE Cardiology Unit. These machines are said to be not durable and not operate well in tropical Sri Lanka.

          Why they were incapable of magnanimity? Is that why gov has rehabilitated and released 13000 LTTE cadres who attacked our people? Is that why GOV with its money fed, educated and gave healthcare for people in LTTE areas for 30 years which none of the LTTE supporters here didn’t do.

          “It is a pity that the Tamils now have to teach the Sinhala as to how elected people should behave!”

          Admiring the fact that Tamils always want to teach other people, Wiggie’s two cent worth Pradeshiya sabha behavior in NPC and Suresh Premachandra’s cheap tactics in land grab incident shows how much you have to do homework before teaching others. It is better to look at one’s own backyard before looking at others.
          And wait what did the so called LTTE do for 30 years? I think murder, massacres, robbing are decent politics

What would have been the case if no foreign NGOs present when the people in mass crossed over? If you had done everything right why make fuss about an impartial investigation? Do you know how many people paid vast sums of money to buy their freedom? Do you know how many Tamil women were incessantly raped, mutilated and killed after surrendering? I am amazed at your incredulity that the Sinhala army committed gruesome crimes of blood curdling nature when you will readily admit that they did the same to your kith and kin during the JVP uprising!

              Tamils sponsored LTTE. LTTE destroyed this country. You guys cheered then didn’t you? The Sinhala people most certainly do have the right to cut you down to size. Didn’t the Sinhalese endure your wanton violence 30 bloody years? What did you do then? Now suck it up! You think Sinhala Army has no other business than to keep raping and robbing Tamils? Do you think this country can pay its bills today because of work done by Tamils of North and East? You think being Tamil makes you so up and above everybody else so much that if a Sinhala soldier sees a Tamil women the guy instantly puts away his weapons, cloths and starts raping that women? Tamil women are beauty queens and Sinhala women are so ugly that no guy will ever look at them right? Every word you right, one can see how much this “TAMIL” thing has gotten into your head. If being Tamil is so much important to you and Sinhala people being around desecrates the purity and honor of your bloody Tamil women, house holds and everything in between, why don’t you all living in the South among Sinhala people, pack up your bloody shit and go all the way to Jaffna or better still Tamil Nadu or UK, USA or Australia? You will be better off among the white skinned people who do not sweat like us Sinhala South Asia people no eh? You are better than us all no eh? You deserve better than us all no? right? You can go about destroying everything in this country just because you don’t feel respected no right? You want me to call you HAMU like those Wallawa people in the up country who nobody gives a damn nowadays?

              Government money is Sinhala money right?
              —————————————————–
              Haven’t you people been telling this government is a Sinhala gov? When gov ill-treats civilians (Tamils) it is a Sinhala gov but when gov pays for the wellbeing of the tamils it is not a sinhala government.
              //
              How do you know how many they killed first before gloating about how many you rehabilitated.
              ——————————————————————–
              Of course they might have killed many LTTE cadres. When army arrested (not all are surrendered) LTTE cadres they were categorized as soft and hard. Whom they identified as hard might have faced a bad fate while the gov was humane on soft ones. I didn’t say gov laid rose petals for LTTE cadres after arrest (they need not) but the fact that 13000 were released after rehabilitated (and with a batch coming next) proves the point gov treated the tamils in a humane manner than most people depict.
              SL gov treated LTTE cadres in a more humane manner than they dealt with JVP and more humane than how American, Indian and British deal with Islamic terrorists. You have to compare that with other conflict situations. The treatment of captured german troops by allied forces is far worse than how gov is handling LTTE cadres.
              //
              What would have been the case if no foreign NGOs present when the people in mass crossed over?
              ———————————————————————–
              So are you saying now NGOs were present at the defence lines? What happened to famous “war without witness” propaganda? Then how is genocide possible too?  SLA or gov is not rich enough to waste their ammo on civilians. Gov was ready and had previous planning done to cater for a large number of war refugees. Even tamil officials were involved in this. If gov wanted to kill civilians why did they do such a planning? What would gov achieve by killing civilians?
              If army didn’t want to save civilians why did they take dangerous routes to save civilians even sacrificing their own soldiers. Army did consider reducing civilian death toll other wise they could have finished off the terrorists with lesser army casualties and more civilian deaths.
              Refer the link below even the US embassy officials confirmed it.
              https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/wikileaks-its-not-genocide-army-could-have-won-the-battle-with-higher-civilian-and-less-army-casualties-icrc-to-us-mission-to-un/
              “”So, de Maio said, while one could safely say that there were ‘serious, widespread violations of IHL,’ by the Sri Lankan forces, it did not amount to genocide. He could site examples of where the army had stopped shelling when ICRC informed them it was killing civilians. In fact, the army actually could have won the military battle faster with higher civilian casualties, yet chosen a slower approach which led to a greater number of Sri Lankan military deaths””
              //
              If you had done everything right why make fuss about an impartial investigation?
              ——————————————————————————————–
              Because there is no body suitable enough to do an international investigation. And the ones who want to do it are terrorist funders and we have the right to reject it. It is a violation of our sovereignty and integrity as a nation.
              //
              Do you know how many people paid vast sums of money to buy their freedom?
              ————————————————————————————————–
              Many might have. I have heard people in armed forces taking bribes to free people even LTTE operatives. But how is it anything involving war crimes?
              //
              Do you know how many Tamil women were incessantly raped, mutilated and killed after surrendering?
              ————————————–
              How many? This accusation was directed at SLA after gov kept refugees camps. Many NGOs and even undercover agents of NGOs worked inside these camps to get to know such things. Even after such surveillance such an accusation was not brought up by them. Not even a shred of evidence. These are mainly from LTTE remnants overseas and their media. Some even went to the extent of saying 1600 people die daily.
              //
              I am amazed at your incredulity that the Sinhala army committed gruesome crimes of blood curdling nature when you will readily admit that they did the same to your kith and kin during the JVP uprising!
              ————————————–
              I have always admitted that. Actually we are more knowledgeable about it than you are. It has a deep scar. That is why Sinhala people never voted for a UNP gov ever though it is a misplaced disgust. The ill will towards army changed very fast when they had to face LTTE terrorist attacks and army fought against terrorists. Also many knowledgeable Sinhalese would say whatever wrong happened what SLA did was right ultimately when looking at the destruction and mayhem JVP caused.

      Priya,

      I am in complete agreement with you on this. I just do not understand the purpose of TGTE! Moreover, how do they reconcile this statement of their’s:

      “…calling for the establishment of a Truth and Reconciliation Commission in Sri Lanka should come after the birth of an independent and sovereign State of Tamil Eelam’.”

      with the that of the TNA manifesto for the NPC elections. TNA have unambiguously committed to a solution within one-country; the Tamil people of the North overwhelmingly endorsed it. So, where does TGTE stand on this? They must move away from separatism as a matter of urgency and intransigence on this will only prolong the Tamil struggle!

    Nelson Mandela’s way of reconciliation was not to take revenge from White Africa-nos for the long time oppression of majority by the white(not English)minority and let them continue to hold their positions in Africa. Latter could be due to the fact that ANC could not find any black people qualified to fill so much of positions. The country is naturally rich. IN SL this can be done by (re)building roads, hospitals, schools make sure common man can communicate with the administration in their mother tongue and get foreign investors to start business in the North(tourism etc).

    I have huge respect for Nelson Mandela. Justice Wigneswaran can emulate him and deliver the Sri Lankan Tamils from the current political environment.

    This said, its a bit ironic that Rudrakumaran, the Chief Counsel of the LTTE, commends Nelson who emphasized reconciliation over hatred.

    The LTTE killed Tamil leaders such as Alfred Duriappah, Rajini Thiranagama, Neelan Tiruchelvam, Yogeswaran, Amirthalingam, Pon Sivapalan, Sarojini Yogeswaran, Thangathurai, Sam Thambimuttu etc. The LTTE forced the unwilling Tamils of Jaffna in December 1995 to retreat alongside them to Chavakacheri at tremendous human cost. The LTTE used unwilling civilians in Vakarai as a human shield in 2006 – also at huge cost to the civilians. The LTTE used the exploited Tamils as a civilian shield in 2009 in Mullivaikal. They killed Tamil youth who refused to join them in 2008.

    We voted for Justice Wigneswaran, not for Rudrakumaran! We voted for a responsible opposition to Colombo, not for the diaspora led extremism while based in the comfort of New York! I do not like the current Government in Colombo. But this does not mean that we want the Rudrakumaran’s to lead us either!

    He should perhaps make his peace with Reverend S.J. Emmanuel rather than preach to us.

      If you ponder with your brains, not with your heart, Prabhakaran was the product of the Sinhalese regime, directly and indirectly. You should be aware that President Premadasa showered Prabhakaran with guns and money. What he did with this is well known. The Sinhala regime destroyed legitimate democratic space and rights of moderate Tamil politicians who eventually got sandwiched “between the devil and the deep blue sea”. Insofar as the Sinhala politicians were concerned, the Tamils were mere pawns in their political endeavours and Tamils suffered as a result. Southern politicians built their political career on the sufferings of the Tamils.

      Not only the advent of Prabhakaran was a breath of fresh air, there cannot be any denial that it was after Prabhakaran blew off a few that the Sinhala regime wanted to talk at all.

      The regime’s murder of the likes of Lasantha Wickramatunge seems to have escaped your blurred vision. That more than 70,000 Sinhalas vanished in thin air during the JVP uprising too has vanished from your non-existent Sinhala list. When a war hero suddenly is turned into a traitor, it is one Sinhala against another. So, do not be bemused that Tamils were victims of the LTTE. Douglas Devananda is a Tamil, so is Karuna, but their parties lost badly in the Tamil areas. Unless you dispute that Ranil is a Sinhalese, he doesn’t seem to make the cut against another Sinhalese, MR. The point is, instead of making it look like a Tamil vs Tamil or Sinhala vs Sinhala problem, it is more of the prevalence of different ideology.

      As for your sob story of the human shield matter, how come you you have big enough eyes to spot that only but seem to have amnesia in remembering the bombing of hospitals (after all GR admitted this), murdering of civilians and the murdering of those who had surrendered, sort of selective memory. Both warring parties have been alleged to have committed grave war crimes and the investigation should cover both.

      Truth be told, without the pressure from international community, India (Tamilnadu) and the diaspora, there wouldn’t be elections for the NPC. When the East had Provincial elections soon after it was taken by the regime, such haste eluded the NPC. Do you think India would have voted against Sri Lanka if not for Tamilnadu’s pressure. CW and the TNA had taken their pleas for an international investigation on the genocide of the Tamils. Finally, what makes you think that there won’t be a white van visiting CW, if not for the pressure from the international community, Tamilnadu and diaspora? There is a lot of pressure being piled up on the Rajapaksas, and they know that their moves are closely watched. So, please stop lecturing us.

        There are points I agree with you – international pressure on Colombo forcing it to hold elections to the North, the violence directed by Colombo at southern Sinhalese youth in 1971 and 1989 that led to several tens of thousands dead, and the context within which Prabhakaran arose.

        This said, there is one point where you are completely dishonest. You sidestep the issue of human shields that the Tamil Tigers had used! While the Government had no business mercilessly shelling areas that it knew Tamil civilians were trapped in, the Tigers refused to allow the Tamil civilians to leave either. Many Tamil civilians perished. Had they been allowed to, they would have all left the area. The Tigers prevented them from leaving! This happened in 1995, 2006 and 2009. The civilians were mere pawns to the Tiger leadership.

        The Tamil Tigers also eliminated other Tamil youth groups – PLOTE, EPRLF, TELO etc in a merciless manner, not just the TULF MPs that I mentioned. Who killed Uma Maheswaran, Sri Sabaratnam, K. Padmanabha – perhaps even Kuttimani? The Tigers repeatedly broke ceasefires – in 1987, 1990, 1995,2005. They brought Mahinda Rajapakse into power by preventing the Tamil public from voting in 2005! We would have had a Ranil Presidency otherwise.

        Its no point only blaming Colombo for the Tamil predicament since the 1950s. The Tamils are also to blame in part. We were 25% of the population in the 1940s. G.G. Ponnambalam voted with D.S. Senanayake to strip the estate Tamils of their vote and citizenship in 1949. That was an act of supreme treachery.

        You place a lot of store on Tamil Nadu. The ultimate arbiters of our fate are in Washington, London and New Delhi. Geopolitical factors will decide the course of history here. My own sense is that the noose is tightening on Colombo. But lets not sing hosannahs to the Tamil Tigers who did a lot of damage to our livelihoods, our lives and our leaders. Lets look at the future and not unduly be confined by the Tiger mindset that you seem to be celebrating. There is more to Tamil than the LTTE!

        Dharma will prevail. But that precludes a shameless Velupillai Prabhakaran who likely surrendered to the Sri Lankan military only to be killed in cold blood therafter while sending thousands of youth to their death.

          Savitri,

          Kindly bear in mind that the new delhi will not react to TNA request of federalism without TN pressure. So please dont discount us either. Washington and London pressed the pressure only after New delhi did, New delhi needed NPC election to counter rising upset in TN , not otheriwse, can you explain why it took four years for New delhi to force colomo to hold NPC elections?

            I disagree. There are broader geostrategic objectives that the US, UK and Europe are pursuing to counter Chinese influence. Hence the support for the Sri Lankan Tamils. Tamil Nadu agitation did not stop India from providing key logistical support to Colombo as it crushed the Tigers in 2009! Karunanidhi’s fast was hilarious – after breakfast and before lunch! New Delhi also supported the resolution Sri Lanka moved in Geneva in 2009 which congratulated the Rajapakse administration for having crushed the Tigers! Karunanidhi did nothing then. It was US pressure which made India change in 2012 and 2013 at the UNHRC. The European Parliament just passed a resolution on Sri Lanka.

              I partially agree with you, i remember the situation in 2009. It was this crook called karuna who cheated agitating people that normalcy was restored in SL. People wer coaxed all those years by this cheater that he was a gnuine wisher for Srilankan Tamils, but as time progressed when more and more evidences unearthed, people at large come to know the truth. The whole media during those days were iron curtailed to show Srilankan tamils plight purely because of Congress. Exactly from your own words, then Newdelhi which supported GosL in 2009 , how then turned against GoSL in 2012 and 2013, It is just because growing upset in TN and the students agitation and immolation caused them to push NPC elections. Secondly US and UK will make resolutions after resolutions for next 30 years without any measurable outcome, unless people forces like what happened in 2009 makes them to think. This is where the disapora has done the job cleverly. My core point of this arguement is Newdelhi will not pursue any meaningful solution on its own without TN people full fledged support and similarly UK or US or Canada will not do unless diaspora continues to hold its pressure on them. simple as that it stands. Why then Kruna lost his government in 2011? Surevy revealed that his cheating on Srilankan tamils was one of the top five reaosns.

                Savitri,

                I am very sorry to add another comment to apprise on you geo-polictics. To counter Chinese influence US has far more serious stratergies than what you think. This small island stands nowhere in that global gamble, Dont fall prey to GoSL propaganda, US has very strong nexus in South china sea itself to contain it and support India on the southern side. China mark my word, in its lifetime cannot show any supremacy agisnt whites( I include russian here in this white category)or outside its border anywhere. The day it does, it will see four countries carved out of it and global enemies of china is sallivating for that situations, and i dont think china will do anything in its wisest sense.

    Rudra Kumaran was able make few millions and the “keys” for the swiss bank accounts of the LTTE. So, the “Past” is so beneficial to him.

    He or his buddies spent nothing to the so called suffering Tamils!

    The joke is he too talk about Nelson Mandela!

    He cannot come to Canada where more Lankan Tamils live after Sri lanka.

    There is another TGTE in Canada under notorious political criminal S.Thiruchelvam who is the PM of “Democratic TGTE”. If he cannot reconcile with Canadian TGTE gangs, what is the point of his reconciliation talks?

      Agreed. TGTE is a “military government in exile” and they allege that GOSL is a military government. Where can we find two military governments reconciling?

        The Professional,

        You say the TGTE is a military govt in exile. Where is it’s military? As for the GOSL and it’s military is a curse even for us the Sinhalese in the South as we are trampled by the Jack Boot today. You saw what happened at Rathupaswela? The Military of the GOSL might be Ranwiruwas for the Forces families, but not for the Sinhala masses anymore.

          Douglas started reconciliation with whom? How do you explain his armed gang and intimidating people to get their way? TNA winning the election overwhelmingly amid EPDP organised harassment and intimidations; what does this tell you? First tell this forum as to where in Somalia your ancestors hail from.

            You are from Somalia. No doubt.

            Douglas is always on defensive. LTTE tried to kill him 11 times and failed. Can you explain it?

            Reconciliation with Sinhalese started by DD long ago! You pee brain cannot understand it!

            NPC election victory is now a laughing matter. The NPC cannot do much what ever Douglas did to the Tamils!

    How much did PM Rudra had to fork out to bring Castr?nedviyan on Board the TGTE?

    He should perhaps make his peace with Reverend S.J. Emmanuel rather than preach to us….. savithyri
    DOES S.J.EMMANUEL HEAR CONFESSIONS STILL OR HAS HE GONE DEAF? FINDOUT & LET RUDRA KNOW TO GO TO EMMANUEL AND SAY “MEA CULPA… MEA CULPA….

    wHEN WILL IT BE WAR BETWEEN TGTE/USA AND TGTE/CANADA… I WANT TO BE A MERCENARY WITH MY THONDAMANARU GANG WHO IS WILLING TO PAY MOST.

    Sri Lankans should NEVER forget the cruelties the LTTE forced upon them. However, those who are willing now to live in peacea with the rest of the communities should be forgiven. Those who still howl for murder and mayhem, whether living at home or abroad, must be hunted down.

    Reconciliation Is Not A Matter Of Ignoring A Cruel Past!
    The point raised in this article is The Truth and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa is not the answer to Sri Lankan Reconciliation.
    1. The Truth and Reconciliation commission in South africa was created by victims of Apartheid and they want to forgive the whites and want to live with them peacefully in South Africa as one nation. But TRC was only called after the ANC victory in the elections and the victims got the power and they are sure as a majority race they will never again be ruled by a minority whites! The victims who are power holders decided to have TRC not the other way round.

    In Sri lanka the Sinhala majority did the genocide from 1948 by sending back more than 1 million upcountry tamils who are like whites who came to live in sri lanka. on all occasion reduce tamil population and the tamils rights. when tamils protested against this discrimination by non violent protest it was disrupted by violent means. Tamils lands like today has been colonised by sinhala thugs with the government help even to the extent of giving this thugs to them to protect these colonisation. These thugs are then recruited to arm forces to kill tamils. They even went into houses in 1983 and shot and killed the house owners with out any reason. none of them is prosecuted upto now.

    Tamils have no other choice than to take up arms to protect their rights, their love ones and their lands and culture. This was label as terrorism, like the ANC started the arms struggle against apartheid the Nelson Mandela was named as a terrorist.

    With the 2001 attack on the World trade centre in new york changed the arms struggle method adopted by tamils as a means of protecting them from sri Lankan genocide. The world took a different view this produces a advantage for GOSL to do the 2009 genocide done in a massive scale to compensate for the 30 years arms struggle, that did not allow the Sri Lankan ruler to carry out the genocide to reduce the population of Tamils on systematic basis. Calling this operation a massive rescue operation.

    Did any tamil live in LTTE area ask you to rescue them from LTTE. Sri Lankan government created no fire zones and called the people in and when they came in what to the sri lankan forces do shell and bomb this area is this a rescue operation?? They also used band weapons and weapons of mass destruction. Good example for future rescue operations.

    So the victors sinhalese are talking about south african style TRC in Sri Lanka. Reconciliation means both parties should agree to forgive one another and both will gain from one another by reconciliation.
    But Tamils is facing genocide and victims of genocide cannot do reconciliation with sinhalese with out accountability for the genocide and the perpetrators of this genocide is punished.

    That is why the resolution says it is only possible to have the South African Style TRC is only possible when the tamils victims of this genocide got their Tamil Eelam and they will feel saver to offer this type of reconciliation when they are safe as a country with borders protected by international protection. tamils will be willing to forgive the past atrocities committed by a sinhalese government which is elected exclusively by sinhalese majority. Tamils feels this not only committed by Rajapaksa regime but all the sinhalese who re elected him in 2010. Tamils will never forgive or forget Rajapaksa regime and its commanders. But will forgive the sinhalese voted him into power only when the tamil eelam is formed. As two nation which will depend on each other at that tamils will call for a South African Style TRC. Until that all the tamils both in diaspora and in Homeland will endure to call the international community for accountability and Justice.
    The delaying tactics and telling lies will not help the current regime
    it will soon turn on the sinhala masses to protect it self.

    So I can only say to commentators who are supporting GOSL the blood is in your hand, you can also become victims of your karma and share the karma of Rajapaska for the shake of few ideologies or few silver coins.
    by doing this injustice for tamils you are also becoming collaborators of this heinous crimes. So please watch out you are not healing the wounds but putting salt into the wounds. these wounds are created in the mind it will never heals until the justice is done.

    Here are few questions for few of the commentators?

    Do you know what TGTE stand for if not please go google and read.

    Do you know how many sinhalese civilians has been totally killed by LTTE and how much damage to sinhalese civilian property has caused by LTTE action. please get the estimate and come and talk about LTTE terrorism.

    How many tamil civilian has been killed by GOSL Action?
    How much damage has been done to tamils properties ?

    After seeing the CH4 videos and other evidence are you still on denial?

    GOSL has not yet shown any evident that LTTE guns was in the no fire zones with all the time the unmanned air crafts taking pictures of the
    why they did not put any of this pictures if there is any. It clearly shows that GOSL arms forces deliberately targeted Tamil Civilians, because they are tamils and when they are wounded and the hospitals was targeted with the intention to kill not to spare any one.

    You know karuna fraction came out of LTTE and they did have LTTE uniforms and government in the last movement used this karuna fraction to go into LTTE area with LTTE uniform and shot at people this is planned operation and part of the insurgency strategy.

    If tamils can bring change in the international community within four years think what they can do within next five years ??

    LTTE silenced their guns in 2009. Why are you still calling any tamil organisation which is taking about tamil rights a terrorist organisation or symposisors of LTTE?

      Yes, TGTE is international and transnational.

      It floats like a butterfly and stinks like a bee, and you are feeling it, hence the fear in your eyes. Live and let live,or we will swamp you.

      Do you expect the victims of war to forgive and forget genocide?.

      You are begging for reconcilliation, because you know deep down Eelam is unavoidable, and it will excel and will shame you all, and your karma is eating you up slowly,and will pass on to your generations to come.

      Wake up!

    We do not need burrowed TRCs.
    There is a big issue right now in the North, Jayadevan’ Rajasingham’s ancesstral land is up for grabs by the Tamil land grabbers and the ARMY has come to the rescue.

    Call up for an emmergency meeting of your sleeping parliament to settle the issue.
    Wignesh held hostage.

    Independent Sovereign State of Tamil Ealam is an unavoidable eventuality one likes it or not, I am in agreement with many on this board that the LTTE was defeated and they were not the problem but the by-product of a major problem, Singhalese politicians created Praba for their own benefit, Tamils need to regain the land taken over by the thugs Srilankan army, we need to get Justice for thousands of innocent civilians including children. Long live Tamil Ealam.
