Tamara Kunanayakam; True Anti-Imperialists Must Stand By Tamils

By Ron Ridenour

A leading Uncle Tom Tamil, Tamara Kunanayakam, will apparently again be leading the Sri Lankan government’s case for itself at the 25th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC), March 3-28.

This traitor-to-her-people supports genocidal Sinhalese governments, for which the current President Mahinda Rajapaksa appointed her as ambassador to Cuba (2009-11), and then as Permanent Representative to the United Nations at Geneva on August 9, 2011. She was relieved of this duty in July 2012.

The Permanent Peoples Tribunal (PPT), the successor of the Bertrand Russell war crimes tribunal (Vietnam) of 1966-7, recently determined the Sri Lanka government to be guilty of perpetuating genocide against the Tamil people over a long history, not the least the current Rajapaksa government for which Tamara Kunanayakam works as a diplomat.

The PPT also found that the United States and Britain were genocidaire accomplices for the military and political support they had given Sinhalese governments in its discrimination, mass murder, rape and other forms of torture, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Kunanayakam’s mother was an Indian Tamil, a Hindu. Her father was a Eelam Tamil, a Christian and member of the Trotskyist Lanka Sama Samaja Party, which is now part of the United People’s Freedom Alliance government of Rajapaksa and his family.
In the 1980s Kunanayakam (T.K.) defended her people against pogroms led by Sinhalese Buddhist monks and backed by government politicians, police and army. She spoke against the 1983 pogrom, Black July, in which hundreds of Tamils were murdered, some set on fire alive. Over 50 prisoners were murdered in their cells. She protested as a consultant at the World Council of Churches. The then conservative United National Party (UNP) President J.R. Jayewardene branded her as a “terrorist agent”.

In 1987, T.K. spoke against illegal detentions and torture of Tamils at the then Human Rights Commission, a predecessor to the current Human Rights Council where the converted Uncle Tom now speaks for the Sri Lanka Freedom Party-led Sinhalese government, a neo-liberal capitalist government that calls itself socialist. Before her conversion, she spoke the truth about the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA). She said it is an “ugly blot on the statute book of any civilized country”.

The PTA of 1978 provides the police broad powers to search, arrest, and detain “suspects”. It is modeled after the British PTA of 1974 aimed against Irish liberationists.  Jayewardene, also known as “Tricky Dick” after his favorite US President Nixon, made the PTA permanent in 1982 and it remains extant today, five years after the end of the civil war.

But since seeing the light of defending Sri Lankan chauvinist governments, T.K places herself as a supporter of their massive discriminations against Tamils by law (unequal rights in obtaining education and jobs, unequal status of non-Buddhist religions and the Tamil language), plus routine murders and disappearances, rapes and other torture carried out with impunity—essential apartheid. And she also now supports the PTA.

The Sri Lanka Freedom Party, of which Rajapaksa is president, is only an unchallenged progression of the same chauvinist policies, akin to South Africa’s former apartheid. In fact, in June 2007, Mahinda Rajapaksa’s brother, Gotabhaya, a US citizen and Minister of Defence advocated “deporting” Colombo based Tamils, such as Kunanayakam’s family, to the LTTE-held territory in the north and east. In fact, at least 500 ethnic Tamils from Colombo were deported.

The forcible deportation of the ethnic Tamils from Colombo to the Northern and Eastern parts is reminiscent of The Holocaust.” stated Mr Suhas Chakma, Director of Asian Centre for Human Rights.

Since the end of the war, apartheid is practiced even more in the north and east as Sinhalese military and civilians take over more and more of Tamils’ homes, businesses, even gravesites and places of worship. Sinhalese chauvinists are copying both racist Boers and racist Zionists. 

When she became ambassador to Cuba (2009-11) Kunanayakam travelled to Venezuela, in order to convince the then Chavez-led government not to offer assistance to Tamils fleeing Sri Lanka. In this campaign she named me as a promoter of terrorist activities. She stated I was an agent for both the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, which was the US terrorist list, and the United States, which has long been the major terrorist and imperialist nation of the world, and which I have opposed with deeds and words for 53 years. Here are excerpts from my protest of her defamation of my character.

“The digital magazine of the eight countries of ALBA (Boliviarian Alliance for the Americas), www.patriagrande.com.ve, published a supposed interview, on June 11, 2010, with the ambassador of Sri Lanka in Cuba, Tamara Kunanayakam (T.K.). The interview, which had no name for the interviewer, was entitled in the original Spanish, “Ambassador of Sri Lanka in Cuba denounces manipulations by separatist groups.” Patriagrande presented the interview as “realized by Correo del Orinoco” (Venezuela government’s official newspaper.)

I cite from the supposed interview: “These organizations [that she says are fronts for the now destroyed terrorist LTTE] and their campaign of defamation have the support of certain major powers (read as USA) their institutions and NGOs…and individuals such as Ron Ridenour

She names me four times in this statement. I wrote in reply:

“As it is a crime to support terrorism, Tamara Kunanayakam is libeling me. It is also a defamation of my character, in my eyes, to associate me with the most potent terrorists of the world—the United States/CIA. I, therefore, demand a retraction.” (Unfortunately, patriagrande and Correo del Orinoco did not publish my answer to these defamations.)

For the entire T.K. statement and my reply see pages 169-177 in my book, “Tamil Nation in Sri Lanka”  Published by New Century Book House, New Century Buildings 41-B, SIDCO Industrial Estate Ambattur, Chennai 600 098

Hypocritical anti-imperialist

In her latest Colombo Telegraph piece, Kunanayakam appears to be an angry anti-imperialist leftist. She lashes out at the Sri Lankan “ruling class” for having “disseminated misleading information for personal gain, which she contends is useful for those threatening the nation. This “nationalist patriot” is warning the ruling class about the designs of the US/UK imperialists. She even has a strategy “to counter the imperialist threat”.

This assumed leftist language also makes her popular in Cuban government circles. She helps fool the government because of US imperialism’s long-held blockade against it, and its use of violence, sabotage and terror against Cuba. Since the end of the Sri Lankan civil war (May 2009), the US/UK wish to make “human rights” noises against the Sri Lankan government, which has turned over an important port (Hambantota) for commercial and naval activities in exchange for hundreds of millions of dollars in weaponry/communication/intelligence sold or donated to it in the last stages of the civil war. China became a serious competitor to the US/UK/Israel/India/providers of such military hardware. Western powers feel chagrined. The US has wanted another important bay port at Trincomalee; competition is strong.

The hypocrisy of Uncle Tom Kunanayakam is not unusual in most governmental circles but coming from a Tamil makes her quite a special prize for both Sri Lankan Sinhalese chauvinist leaders and Cuban government leaders. This can happen, partially, because Tamils in the western Diaspora allow her to carry forth the anti-imperialist, pro-Cuba sword, while they make polite chat with the imperialists hoping they will “do the right thing” and create an independent, international investigation into war crimes.

Tamara Kunanayakam is allowed to fill the void of a real left, of authentic anti-imperialists, of authentic anti-capitalist revolutionaries.

As a Tamil she helps the image of the Sri Lankan capitalist government with its socialist rhetoric and its coalition parties with false names such as “Communist” “Trotskyist” “Maoist” “Buddhist”.

While many, even most, Tamils in the long struggle for liberation were socialists or communists of one stripe or another, certainly pro-Cuban revolution and anti-imperialists, they have given up or hidden those notions since the defeat of the LTTE and the massive destruction of life, liberty, possessions of most Tamils in the north and east. (Kunanayakam is a Colombo based Tamil, where in the latter years there has not been much brutality used against Tamils).

Another pro-Cuba spokesperson for Sri Lankan genocide and T.K. associate is Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka, who, like Kunanayakam, was an ambassador for Sri Lanka at Geneva. He recently wrote against the new Northern Provincial Council for adopting a resolution calling for the UN to establish an international war crimes investigation, which is supported by most Tamils in the north and east, as well as in the diaspora.

Jayatilleka has written a book about Fidel Castro, and he wrote comments to an article I wrote criticizing Cuba for its support of the Rajapaksa genocide government, “Cuba Hosted Sri Lanka Pres/War Criminal”, June 22, 2012.

I concluded my piece:

“I am sickened by the Cuban government’s hypocritical support of Rajapaksa and his family regime and, consequently, the immoral acceptance of the genocide against a minority people. I am certain that if Che Guevara were around he would rant and rave, and that is what I ask all solidarity supporters of Cuba to do.”

To which Dayan replied: Che Guevara never ‘ranted and raved’, except according to demented Miami propagandists.” Dayan purports expertise on Che and is well received by the Cuban government—“I happen to be the only Asian whose essay on Che’s 40th death anniversary was written on invitation and published in the Granma, the organ of the central committee of the Cuban Communist party’s central committee.”

No doubt that Cuba’s government unfortunately views this Sinhalese chauvinist as an ally. I was also viewed as an ally having been invited by the Minister of Culture, in 1987, to work for the foreign publishing house, Editorial Jose Marti, and later for the foreign news agency, Prensa Latina. I lived and worked in Cuba from 1988 to 1996, and have written hundreds of articles and six books about Cuba and its revolution. I still support the Cuban revolution, and as such must now criticize it for reversing its economic direction towards capitalism, and especially for abandoning its internationalist solidarity record when it comes to Sri Lanka since it negates the plight of the Tamil people by uncritically backing the Sri Lankan governments. Cuba is, in part, motivated to do so because of the rhetoric of anti-imperialism, which Kunanayakam and Jayatilleke represent.

But Jayatilleke has a racist streak as Visvanathan Sivam wrote about the “friend of Che Guevara”, who insulted “the Tamils as people behaving like monkeys. He talks as if the Tamils are living at the mercy of the Sinhalese and they have no other alternative. He failed to realise that the Tamils were a nation and they lived in a kingdom until the British merged them with the Sinhalese in 1833 in the island of Ceylon.”  (See what the “anti-imperialist” “pro-Cuban” had to say about Tamils here )

Sri Lanka is capitalist and pro-US

Let’s get some hard facts straight. Sri Lanka’s economy and politics is capitalist, and its greatest ally both economically and militarily for decades is the United States of America. And Cuba knows that too.

Rodolfo Reyes Rodríguez, Cuba’s Permanent Representative to United Nations Office at Geneva, argued at the 19th session of the Human Rights Council (HRC) that the United States acted contradictorily for presenting a resolution asking Sri Lanka to implement its own mild report, Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC), and slightly criticizing the government for not addressing human rights abuse, but only that which occurred during the end of the civil war between the government and the LTTE.

Rodríguez ridiculed the US position given that, as he said, 40% of military hardware sold to Sri Lankan governments between 1983 and 2009 (the duration of the war for liberation) came from it, and some from its closest allies the UK and even more from apartheid Israel.

“Why do they doubt Sri Lanka after having sold so many weapons?” Rodríguez inquired.

It is not known just how much in total sums the West has given/sold, but according to the US’s own establishment, the publically released data is tremendous. (See my book, “Tamil Nation in Sri Lanka”, chapter five, for more statistics.)

A US Government Center for Defense Information chart shows that the US sold (or donated) $143 million in military aid to Sri Lanka’s military in the 17-year period. US foreign military sales, in 2007, were $60.8 million—the greatest amount for any single year—plus $1.44 million was spent on military training and financing. Green Berets were used since 1996 in “Operation Balanced Style” to train soldiers.

Economic and Military sales and assistance continued despite the fact that the US admits that the Sri Lanka government and its paramilitary allies practiced torture, murder, disappearances, child recruiting and other brutalities. (See the US Department of State’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor report of March 6, 2007).

Contrary to claims that the US cut off military sales or assistance, it has not done so. Between 2007 and 2009, the US sold a few cutters, radar systems, and 300 trucks. It also sold helicopters, some of which were made in Canada. (Canada also sold small arms amounting to less than $1 million in 2007-9.) The US did cut back sales in 2009 but the 2010-12 fiscal budget called for nearly $3 million in Foreign Military Financing and International Military Education and Training.

As the final massacring was occurring in the spring of 2009, the US-dominated International Monetary Fund was negotiating with Sri Lanka a $2.6 billion “stand-by arrangement” to the genocidal government “to support the country’s economic reform program.” Just two months after the war the IMF granted the life-line loan.

The US State Department’s April 6, 2011 “Background Note on Sri Lanka” shows that the US has steadily supported Sri Lanka militarily and has benefited economically from trade.

“Exports to the United States, Sri Lanka’s most important single-country market, were estimated to be around $1.77 billion for 2010, or 21% of total exports. The United States is Sri Lanka’s second-biggest market for garments, taking almost 40% of total garment exports.” (The UK is second.)

“U.S. assistance has totaled more than $2 billion since Sri Lanka’s independence in 1948…In addition the International Broadcast Bureau (IBB)–formerly Voice of America (VOA)–operates a radio-transmitting station in Sri Lanka. The U.S. Armed Forces maintain a limited military-to-military relationship with the Sri Lanka defense establishment.”

Even as it publicly expressed some criticism of Sri Lanka for not implementing its own investigation into possible human rights abuse, the Obama administration backed a $213 million World Bank loan for Colombo development.

Given that the Human Rights Council will soon be meeting again to evaluate how much impunity for war crimes the Sri Lankan government can maintain, Colombo has hired the Thompson Advisory Group to lobby for its global strategic interests. Two major S.L. political figures are currently in Washington to lobby. Their U.S. advisors have sent out a letter to congressmen to hear the “distinguished” presidential chief-of-staff Lalith Weeratunga and the governor of the central bank A.N. Cabraal. Here is an excerpt from the letter-of-invitation, January 21, 2004.

“China is making inroads already in Sri Lanka but our distinguished visitors wish to make sure that relations with the United States are improved even more strongly.”

While on the one hand, Sri Lanka appeals to capitalist partners, and is in reality a capitalist economy and state, it also wishes to appeal rhetorically to socialist allies as somehow being “socialist”. But the so-called socialist government provides only 13% of employment, mainly in utilities, public transportation, education and health. Production is in private hands, including major multi-nationals. This includes nearly all tea and rubber plantations, and spices, garments, tourism, industry.

Child labor (12 years old plus) is rampant in the tea plantations. The majority are girls and women (75-85%), mostly Tamils originally from India and also native Sri Lankans. They live in horrible windowless Line Rooms. Rape is a common experience for these female Estate Tamils.

Poverty is the plight of 42% of the people today (under $2 a day); extreme poverty (under $1 daily) for six percent.

These conditions are not what would occur if the economy were truly socialist oriented, and one in which workers of all ethnic groups would control the means of production rather than capitalists, or the state.

The SLFP has a long history of discriminating against Tamils, including genocide. From 1956 onward, the SLFP party was the main campaigner for the “Sinhala Only law, and was the government in 1961 when it took full effect. There ensued terrible pogroms against Tamils for peacefully protesting the measure in 1956, 1958 and 1961. Bertrand Russell was one of several thousand demonstrators against the law, in 1961, in London.

The 1971 SLFP government sought and received military aid from imperialists US/UK, in order to viciously squash the insurrectionist Sinhalese organization, Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP).

SLFP governments routinely seek and acquire military aid when putting down Tamils. And Rajapaksa took mass murderer, war criminal George Bush’s advice not to complete a peace agreement with the LTTE when there was a ceasefire, in 2004-5.

If Tamils in India and in the western Diaspora keep up the pressure, if leftist organizations, grass roots groups, representatives of other oppressed peoples seeking liberation (such as Palestinians, Kurds in Turkey, Basques, Irish…) would join in united fronts for liberation for one and all, then we might be able to bring some real hope for Tamils in Sri Lanka, and the other victims.

Be not fooled: The US/UK do not want true accountability, or a Tamil Eelam homeland for the oppressed minority, but the spotlight is turned on and peoples’ power could stoke the light, isolating “anti-imperialist” phonies  such as Kunanayakam and Jayatilleka, and bring, at least, some relief to the down-trodden Tamil people.

I recommend that leftist-progressive organizations and websites, and especially solidarity groups with Cuba, Bolivia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Nicaragua (ALBA countries) make these governments aware that they need to return to their original principle as internationalists who support the oppressed everywhere on earth, and cease supporting unquestionably the genocidal government of Sri Lanka.

      Ron, this article is much too long but your point is very valid:
      TK and DJ are using OUT DATED anti-colonial NATIONALIST rhetoric and theory to white wash the Mahinda Rajapaksa’s military dictatorship, and legitimize their greed for recognition and lucre from the regime.. TK and DJ lie and white wash the DEEP STATE of Gota the Goon and CAPITALISM GONE MAD polices of Basil Jarapassa and MR and sons’ gross greed and corruption and looting of the public wealth in the Land of Sinhalaya Modayas.
      TK and DJ white wash South Asia’s Gaddhafi because they are greedy for money and fame and need to feel important and HEROIC all the time and crave attention! They are indeed pathetic human beings..
      Neither Tamara nor Dayan have any principles and they are merely SPINNERS of outdated post-colonial rhetoric. They are liars too who have taken Cuba and the Latin American countries for a ride because they speak Spanish..

        Why are ex-colonial foreigners wanting to get involved in Sri Lankan affairs so much?

        Tamara and Dayan are both patriotic Sri Lankans and foreign manipulators are going to loose big time in our country.

        The days of British, Dutch and Portuguese screwing us around are over.

        We will have more land reform and chase foreigners out.

          Tamara yes, but Dayan no.

          No doubt- as many other diplomat- Dayan should also have gained senior status- that is however common to any healthy profesisonal.

          However, anyone is becoming clear by going through all the archives of Dayan´s articles in recent past,there are lots of inconsistencies on what he has been adding to this and other forums.

          Dayan is simply a born egoist charactor with chamelion features – that has been familiar to his batchmates at the University of Pera then.

            She does not need SL money or influence like most of us because the nation now smells to high heavens.

          There are number of reasons to get involved in Sri Lankan affairs. The interference of foreigners in this Soil is nothing new even 99 percent of the population are ex-colonial foreigners.

          Why they need to involve is because there is a concern about what is happening in this island. They can’t just look and allow the genocide of the inhabitants of this land. They are humans and they can’t allow blood thirsty animals to rule this island.

          The marxist started again. Anti-Imperialists will stand for Sri Lanka because they know that it is just a little bit suspicious as to why this resolution is being brought by…..Americans? Canadians, the British and most of Europe endorse this resolution? Cuba voted against this I believe because they are very much against American imperialism yet he is trying to make this about Sinhalese vs Tamils like he always does. There are Sinhalese that support and are against the government and there are Tamils that support and are against the government. Period. I’d love to read more of your articles regarding the war crimes committed by your country Ronnie but until then please, keep interfering in our country’s affairs while being ignorant to your own.

        Reading this “Ridenavo” character is so painful to Tamils whose relatives were brutally murdered and tied to lamp posts by Pirpakaran the devil, CT should stop publishing the crap he submits.

      Kunanayakam and Jayatilleka are true mercenaries yearning for money and perks. Dayan also has additional intent of promoting Sinhala hegemony over the island.

      Their leftist rhetoric is to fool the people and the leftist states. Tamara may have been a human rights activist at the start, turned an opportunist for money and perks, joining the racist Sinhalese government and serving their needs.

      Most so-called leftists in Sri Lanka have become Sinhala chauvinist and opportunists over the years. Mahinda was a a human rights activist turned Satan of Sri Lanka committing genocide of Tamils.

          So true. The LTTE terrorists and supporters are like Alice Coopers. They start off as these rebels into sex, drugs and rock n roll and the next day they become born against christians with morals and ethics. After all it’s not like a tiger can change its stripes right?

      People like you never open your mouth how the imperialist agents Catholic/Christian churches openly involved with LTTE terrorists. You still want LTTE on the heads of the Tamils. What kind of democracy LTTE followed?

      Mahinda is not a dictator but elected under the country’s constitution.

      Tamara knows the pro Imperialist tendencies of the of the Tamils under Christian leaderships. That is why Tamils voted Fonseka even after he ridiculed Tamil people are second class.

      This white guys talk about PPT which is an unknown gang to the world but CT uses to make the LTTE gangs happy and CT thinks white man will kill Mahinda!

      //SLFP governments routinely seek and acquire military aid when putting down Tamils. And Rajapaksa took mass murderer, war criminal George Bush’s advice not to complete a peace agreement with the LTTE when there was a ceasefire, in 2004-5.//
      This is the big joke. Actually LTTE followed the advice of Bush and never prepared to make any peace even at the last minute at Mullivaykkaal,

      LTTE destroyed the Indo-lanka peace initiatives in 1987. Can this fool Ron Ridenour explain why Pro-American UNP backed LTTE?

        There is no such babies called half-caste. All babies are born with the right to live in dignity, adequate food, shelter and equal opportunities. It is the mad men who clamour for power who deny the basic rights to children. The ethno-political establishment of the Jaffna Tamil who desire to preserve their advantages gained through casteism, ancestral wealth are resposible for the plight of the nation and its poor.
        Ron draws attention to the poor Tamil estate workers and their horrendous living conditions, but fails to mention that his own white brothers from UK brought them to Sri lanka, sucked the blood of these poor people and the country, and left without accountability.
        Ron’s concerns are political and lacks honesty.

    Dear Ron Ridenour

    for you any tamil who is against the LTTE, is a traitor and a tamil who is against the SL goverment is a true tamil. Tamara Kunanayakam is only trying to find a solution to end the ethnic problems in SL. Sri Lankans dont need any advice from outside SL. Especially from the West, we can see daily how the west is trying to bring democracy to countries, only with drones and tons of bombs. Please Ron be honest can the west solve the problems between the tamils and sinhala people? It is only all Sri Lankans can solve this, of course it needs time and maybe the sinhala majority has to make painful sacrifices, but it is worth for unity.

      Both Sinhalese and Tamils are kallathonies- Some Tamils retained their faith and language while all the so called sinhalese changed names and language once they got their underware,Camise,sapatu etc., missionary education (Thuppai Gunenatu Kunenaya from the church like cyril ponnamperuma, ans kulasingha etc Ask Elmo the sports editor)

    Tamara K was an ardent member and interventionist of the World Christian Students Federation and presented a long list of human rights violations against the sri lanka state,at the 1987 meeting of the UN Human Rights Commission.
    Now she has forgoten all,after recruitment to the diplomatic service by Mahinda Rajapkse – mainly to silence her.
    What has she been promised in return?
    Dayan J invented the “external threat” to sri lanka,via the north,to justify the militarisation of the north.

    Ron Ridenour has spelled out the position,very well.
    It is surprising that TK will again lead the sri lanka delegation in march,at the UNHRC.

    Ron Ridenour.
    Thank you for this essay,well researched and presented.Tamara Kunanayagam appears to be changing colours like a chameleon and at the drop of a hat.A gifted person,self-made,speaks several languages Spanish,German etc her GPS is puzzling.The father was a Jaffna Tamil Chundikuli to be precise,and mother from Badulla,upcountry Tamil&TK herself is a product of Ladies College Colombo.The father belonged to the old LSSP during his days at the GCSU& the language she used recently in an article on the CT is typical of that old non relevant stuff.My assesment of her is that she is a fiercely career conscious person for whom Principles are sentimental stuff which,she imagines would take her nowhere.If, as I understand she has teamed up with Dayan.J.then it is an unholy alliance.

  • 9

    To my detractors,
    Every time I write something for CT I get these hateful responses, such as: I am just a white westerner imperialist, or a lackey for the LTTE, and/or I make tons of money bashing Sinhalese, etc.
    I also get praise for doing a good job of understanding what is going on, and for being a person with convictions. Thank you for that.
    Since I have been challenged, and even feel some injury, I will answer on a personal as well as political note.

    1. I have never received one penny for all the writings I have done on this subject of genocide against the Tamil people. I was paid some money for my book, “Tamil Nation in Sri Lanka”, published at the request of a somewhat leftist publishing house in Chennai. But that sum basically paid for my plane fare. I earned no wage.

    2. I write as I do because of morality. It is the right, just thing to do. That is what I learned from Che and the Cuban revolution in the early days, also from Fidel before he became too much of a diplomat.
    For 53 years I have always opposed imperialism, especially coming from the major world terrorist power, the USA, where I was born. It baffles me that anyone who read this piece could think otherwise. My first demonstration was opposing the invasion of Cuba at the Bay of Pigs, April 1961. I have been jailed a dozen times in the US (also Costa Rica when trying to get to Cuba during the October Missile Crisis)for my moral actions against capitalism/imperialism/state terrorism/aggressive wars and torture and racism.

    My writings are mainly aimed at what I wrote above. I will point to five pieces on my web that might clear up where I stand concerning the US and imperialism/wars. Nor am I an agent of the Tigers. In fact, I have written critically about some of their actions that were atrocities and wrong. Generally, however, the Tigers and many other Tamil guerrilla groups were a necessary response to the oppression/genocide suffered by the Tamils, who had protested peacefully for three decades before guerrilla war was started. Tamils received nothing from their non-violent protests, but were about to gain some autonomy due to armed defence until Bush connived with Rajapaksa to stop the ceasefire process, and until China/Israel/Iran/Pakistan/India/US/UK provided extraordinary amounts of weaponry, intelligence, surveillance, money to defeat the representatives of the Tamil people especially in the north/east homeland.

    These five pieces support my thesis of imperialism and morality.

    Ron Ridenouar is an illiterate who hasen’t read the clear statement by TK in Ceylon Today where she denounces as a blatant lie the news item in about ongoing discussions to reappoint her to Geneva. Anybody can see her response in Ceylon Today (http://www.ceylontoday.lk/91-53827-news-detail-countering-imperialist-threat.html) or in dbs jeyaraj’s blog (http:/dbsjeyaraj.com/dbsj/archives/27541), or even in the Colombo Telegraph (https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/on-march-threat-geneva-there-is-only-one-strategy/) and many other papers and websites.

    Ridenour, a so called trotskyst, is linked to another so called trotskyst, Wickramabahu, who is allied to the right-wing pro-US party leader in Sri Lanka, Ranil Wrikamasinghe. Both have close links to the Tigers, which means to the US. Having lived in Latin America, I can say that Ron Ridenour is a mercenary linked to US intelligence. When his duplicity and double standards were exposed, he decided to leave Cuba. The other so-called Trotskyst is probably als linked to US intelligence.

    Look where are the headquarters of the so-called Government of the Tiger separatists, the TGTE: in New Jersey! In Paris, their activities are openly supported by the French Government, yesterday Sarkozy to day Hollande; For the TGTE the model is Sudan where the US organised the partition of the country. How can Ridenour call himself an anti-imperialist and at the same time work against ALBA countries, especially Cuba and Venezuela? For more than 50 years Cuba has resisted US sanctions and blockade, and Ridenour is now teaching Cuba and Venezuela how to behave. How disgusting and pretentious!

    The simultaneity of articles against TK have a clear origin linked to those who openly or secretly work with the US on a resolution in Geneva to satisfy Washington’s strategic objectives in the region! The people who are ready to betray SriLanka are well known, you can find them in Government and in the Ministry of Foreign affairs of Sri Lanka.

    It is clear that Ridenour has a mission, to divert the attention of the left to support the imperialists forces. His game is very well known in Latin America he brandishes a red flag to fight against the red flag. His long and confused article connected to the one of Wickramabahu published today in Ceylon Today shows without doubt the links between these valets of US Imperialism.

    You Ron are a racist with your own agendas. If you were genuine, you would speak of the grievance of minorities (not just Tamils) and the poor of all communities. There are plenty of super rich minorities and poor Sinhakese and vice versa. Justice cannot be achieved by advocating violence against the Sinhalese, the “government” (read violence against civilians for these red morons) or vilifying the entire Sinhalese community. You need a more balanced view on the history of Ceylon-Sri Lanka where your bigoted mind may even be given a tiny glimpse into the atrocities faced by Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims alike, at the hands of westerners such as yourself. This is one of the historical reasons we have bogus monks running around like lunatics attacking people that disagree with them. Articles such as yours make reconciliation more difficult. No sane Tamil or minority person living at home will be tricked by rogues in red such as you. (Maybe some refugees who want to go begging and crying in Suddha-Velleikaran land) Sane minority people want peaceful co-exitence, with recognition of their cultures, languages, religion, education, access to employment with leading global corporations, free enterprise, freedom from stateism and corruption, freedom from rabid nationalism or ism if any kind and rapid development, JUST LIKE white-folk enjoy in your homelandand what sime of our people literally die and lie for smuggling themselves to thise countries. You would develop your homeland quietly while sowing the seeds of hatred and bitterness in ours? You get off from black in black, brown on brown violence. Genicide by remote control if your moda violent Tigers and JVP type revolutionaries. Go away and do something for our indigenous people in the Americas, and the descendants of African slaves still oppressed by your people. You Sir are a bloody hypocrite, and I mean that literally.

    Upon rereading TK’s piece, I see I made a mistake, perhaps, about her returning to Geneva. I think her piece is confusing as she refers to insider intrigues about whether she has done one thing or another. But whether she returns to Geneva as a rep of the government or not, the essence of what I wrote about her role as a supporter of genocidal Sri Lankan government policies and actions, and her false rhetoric as an anti-imperialist that confuses the true left is not mistaken.

    If I misinterpreted her position as a diplomat once again, I regret it.

      It is time Sinhalese and Tamils go to Britain and say that the IRA violence, including bombing of civilians and assassinations, is acceptable because they are revolutionaries fighting historic oppression of the Irish people. And there is REAL oppression of Irish and Catholics in Britain. Ditto, Scots and Welsh. This is the same for many minority groups throughout Europe who have historical grievances, eg the Basques. Portugal and Spain once had thriving Muslim and Jewish communities. Where are they now? All murdered under the inquisitions. How’s that for genocide Ron? Since you are white – all of you people close ranks against the coloured world when it suits you, you are also heir to these sorts of religions and racial genocides and pogroms. In Namibia in Africa, virtually all the Herero tribe was exterminated by the German settlers. White men such as you were responsible for that too. Perhaps you are trying to use remote control of extremist Tamils to engineer a genocide of Sinhalese? (All in the name of liberation of course). Good useful bloody idiots for you aren’t they? What will you do with them after the job is done?

      Go and study some history Ron. Using your logic, that is revolutionary violence and acceptable. I spoke up about historic oppression of Irish and Celts to some British people and both the Irish and the British turned on me and said “black bastard do not get involved in whites affairs”. Please READ THAT CAREFULLY Ron. There is a lesson in there for you also. If Tamils and Sinhalese had dignity and common sense, they would be speaking to you in the same terms.

      In the Americas, millions of Africans were kidnapped and forced into slavery. Millions more died on the voyages. Slave traders were the first people smugglers and slaves, the first boat people. Others profited from their oppression and misery. See where “foreign solutions” go the African Americans. Do not deny that the legacy of slavery is very much with us. There is widespread discrimination against African Americans and people of color. They do not have equal access to employment, education, they face discrimination by the legal system which is biased against them, they are often blamed for their own problems, whites in the government often accuse them of being lazy and subhuman. Ditto the native Americans. Would you advocate violence by African Americans or native Americans against the white descendants of their former slave owners? Would you even advocate reparations for them including confiscation of plantation estates and assets? Why not? Try doing this Ron. Say these marginalized communities should go planting bombs in public places, assassination and killing of pregnant Caucasian mothers and babies at the crack of dawn. Try it and see what will happen to you in America. Didn’t you absolve the Tigers of such tactics? Do you even realise what you’re saying?

      How about the way our Tamil asylum seekers are treated in the West? Where they are discriminated in employment and often looked down upon and spoken of as aliens? Are they not forced to adopt alien cultures, languages and lifestyles? Isn’t this “structural genocide”? Don’t tell me this is not true because I have first hand experience of this.

      You are just the same as that other white-racist-interferer Adele Balasingham. Go home Ron and take your bloody ideas with you. Coloured people will no longer be tricked into Brown on Brown or Black on Black violence any more.

    The so called Permanent Peoples Tribunal must be as blind as bats in daylight, to not have seen the genocide of the Sinhalese, over a long period of time by Colonial powers and other invaders. History also shows how the Sinhalese protected minorities from these invaders, as well as how they respected all minority religions and cultures unlike in the West. This is why the majority of minorities, including Tamils are working with the Govt to defeat LTTE terrorists.

    The only ethnic based Genocide in Sri Lanka was committed by the Colonial powers, when they massacred the native Sinhalese and colonise the lands they were evicted from with South Indians and also in recent times such genocide was committed by LTTE terrorists, in their acts of structured and random terrorism to evict or kill both the Muslims and Sinhalese from Northern regions over a period of 30 years.
    I wonder why Ron Ridenour, a total stranger to Sri Lanka, apparently with no knowledge about the dirty deeds of LTTE terrorists, is so passionately putting forward a lie to white wash them, and distort the truth. This type of distortion by journalists in itself are violations of human rights of the Sri Lankans, who have just come out from the hell created by Tamil Tiger terrorists, who are today wealthy enough to make people say white is black and vice versa.
    Its not only Tamara Kunanayakam, but the majority of decent Sri Lankan Tamils are quite ashamed of the Tiger terrorists and their benefactors overseas, who committed every possible crime against humanity for so long, not only against the Sinhalese but also the Tamils and Muslims.

    It’s an excellent article giving the true facts of the current situation where some are trying to make the situation good for them selves for personal gains . Please ignore some of the Morons who have nothing to do, but to right absolute crap and pretend they a blogging. It could be attributed to their low IQ.

        Some dipstick on this forum said:

        “Its still a white man’s world”

        Yes, as we already suspected, you are a white man’s arse-licker, not a freedom fighter!

        Listen pal, it might be a “white man’s world” for you and your slave-terrorist friends but it certainly isn’t for me. Unlike you, I don’t do their dirty work. Your posts are always harping on about the Sinhalese oppression but you are unable to see the historical oppression of the white-man on all people of colour around the world and sneakily intervening, like this Ron person to cause more in-fighting and death and destruction between ourselves. You are unable to read the writing on the wall for their hegemony and so in due course, movements such as yours will be flushed down the toilet of history.

        If Ron was genuinely fighting oppression and imperialism, he would be doing something to uplift the millions of people in India that are forced to live on the streets and collect human excrement for a living, and daily raped and lynched, practices encouraged by the British policy of divide and rule and educating and favouring the Hindu upper-castes so as to keep India perpetually backward and in their control. Ron Rigourmortis has nothing to say about this in any of his writings.

        You call yourself Tamil? Perhaps you don’t know your own history. Tamils are a community with 5,000 years of history, having taught the white person how to do mathematics and many other things. Yet you insult Tamil people and culture by descending to the level of a white-man’s assassin, hating yourself and your kindred peoples and their collective progress? I am not Sinhalese or Buddhist. In fact, I am against Sinhalese-Buddhist hegemony and I would like to see an unbiased constitution and administrative system where Tamils and all minorities in Ceylon can feel free and not discriminated. Yet, when I observe people like you blindly hitting out on all Sinhalese and Buddhists, so I sit back and laugh at how hate-filled people such as you love to take out all your frustration on all Sinhalese and all Buddhists – instead of focusing on the issues and the individual offenders. You cant be very educated. You then go running with your striped tails between your legs to be dictated what to do by white people how to oppose the Sinhalese-hegemony when you cant see that in the context of a much bigger global picture. The Sinhalese must be doing something right to cause so much frustration in slaves such as these. And you call Tamara Kunanayagam, a moderate who is actually fighting white hegemony imperialism and trying to live respectfully and peaceably with other coloured folk in her country – you call her an Uncle Tom? Go and look in the mirror if you want to see Uncle Tom. Or next time you are in Washington on a fratricidal lobbying mission, take a look at the white-house. You might catch a glimpse of another uncle Tom.

        If a white-woman gives you a cyanide pill and a suicide vest, are you going to go and BLOW YOURSELF UP with a suicide bomb? Is that your idea of liberation? It will probably give you a big orgasm before you die no? That must be the reason why so many slaves are lining up to blow themselves up for the white woman no? Either that, or they are totally stupid. If you’re thinking of doing this, PLEASE do so out of harm’s reach and leave the rest of us to develop our societies in peace with all our peoples instead of running like beggars all over the white man’s countries and bringing embarrassment to our whole region. Worse, are you going to send money for terrorists to kidnap some innocent Tamil’s child and force them to murder – like your “white man in control” boss Ron Rigourmortis is suggesting you do?

        Your insults are quite entertaining and at the same time you are also insulting yourself – so its even more entertaining! I’d rather be in the “black bastards society” than the black arse-lickers of white-man’s society which you obviously prefer to be. Keep the insults coming pal. In case you hadn’t noticed, this is a forum in the English language. You might do the readers here a favour and translate some of your Sinhala language insults. I cant understand them.

          Native Skunk- Stop belching and farting!

          The Tamils are clear of who they are: The Three Crowned Kings refers to the triumvirate of the Chola, Chera and Pandya dynasties.
          In fact the EU has only one the Dancing Nataraj of Chola Dynasty in their search for God particle. While your manahama is is Dalit stolen propaganda of the slave.
          Indian languages are solely Hindu/Sanskrit. Pali is a security risk and not classical it’s like the US Mermons converting in the North East while you try it grass root under the guise of studying in india.

    To Agnos!

    There is a big difference between you and me ! You know nothing about Ridenour, whom you call Ron, not even his existence until his article. From my experience in Latin America, I know who is Ridenour, his contacts, with whom he works and why he was forced to leave Cuba! It is nothing new, except obviously to you, that the US intelligence used so called trotskyists to infiltrate the left especially in Latin America but also elsewhere as we see with Wickramabahu in Sri Lanka. In fact, they did the same with Chavez using a Sri Lankan woman in Caracas, Sharmini Peiris. She was a leading person in IFEX, which is connected to the Free Media Movement in Sri Lanka, which are both linked to Freedom House and National Endowment for Democracy – NED, well known covers for the CIA. It is very interesting that Sri Lankan NGO’s have received important grants from NED: Home for Human rights(40.000$), Verité Research(58.000$),Transparancy International Sri Lanka(45.000) and others. Guess with which of these NGO’s your friend Wickramabahu is linked? Since you are so well informed, please tell us!

    Very interesting to read Ridenour ‘s new comment above. Like this, the nice Ridenour earned no wage! Great! Poor chap he slept on the streets in Chennai and starved ! He should find a better defence! Next time, hopefully! Have you ever read the best-seller « Inside the Company » (a diary) by Philip Agee, former CIA agent who served for many years in Latin America? After he revealed the techniques used by the CIA to infiltrate the left in Latin America, he was forced to flee to Cuba to escape CIA killers. He died there a few years ago. Ridenour’s techniques are very much like those described by Philip Agee! If Ridenour is, as he says, a true anti-imperialist, then why did he and his friend-in-arms, Wickramabahu, support the LTTE, which assassinated all the Tamil left leaders in Sri Lanka?

    On TGTE ! It was created in Philadelphia with the help of both the Democrat and Republican parties, the US Administration, the NED and therefore the CIA…. The Global Tamil Forum has for godfather: David Milliband and some former prime ministers from UK. I am sure you know that when Milliband was UK foreign minister, he, with Bernard Kouchner and Hillary Clinton, tried to rescue the war criminal Prabakharan and his gang. What do you think about that ?

    What do you know about the TGTE, apart from describing it as a “joke” ? TGTE is totally under Washington’s control, which backs all its initiatives and resolutions! These are facts! Why be so stupid? To hide yourself? Maybe you are in fact Ridenour or perhaps Wickramabahu, the ally of Ranil Wickramasinghe, leader of the pro-US UNP, which only you, Ridenour and Wickramabahu consider to be an « anti-imperialist party fighting for socialism » in Sri Lanka! You have conveniently forgotten that it was the UNP Government that launched the pogrom against Tamils in 1983 and began and continued the bloody war that during several decades killed tens of thousands of innocent Tamils and Sinhalese.

        SINHALESE ARE UNABLE TO FACE THE TRUTH OF BEING ILLICIT IMMIGRANTS.

        4th Feb – wasn’t that Independence day???
        Kingdom of Bisnagar by the Portuguese was the cause of kallathonies from the west. The kandayan kingdom protected by the Dutch put a stop to that.
        The Dutch Necklace of ports (21) stretching from The kingdom Pallava influenced ruled southern tip to Patna Bihar was the cause of kallathonies influx from the east.
        The British was the cause of the hills being populated by Tamils of TN.
        (Both Pallavas and Vijayanagara Empire were by imposters carried out cultural mixing on a large scale)
        Karnataka, Kerala Goa Tamil Nadu Andhra Pradesh, Bihar and mixing thereof forms the exodus as storways and slaves during the period.
        The first Portuguese encounter with India was on 20 May 1498 when Vasco da Gama reached Calicut on Malabar Coast. Vasco da Gama sailed to India for a second time with 15 ships and 800 men, arriving at Calicut on 30 October 1502, where the ruler was willing to sign a treaty. The Portuguese built the Pulicat fort in 1502, with the help of the Vijayanagar ruler.
        (Raja Shivaji II (Marathi: तंजावरचे शिवाजी II)(died 30 Oct 1855) of the Bhonsle dynasty, was the son of Raja Serfoji II and ruled the fortress of Thanjavur and its surroundings from 1832 to 1855. He was the last Raja of Thanjavur known to wield any authority. On the death of Shivaji II, due to the absence of a legitimate heir to the throne, the kingdom was annexed by the British East India Company as per the Doctrine of Lapse.)
        Civilizing the island started in 1505. The Portugese/Spaniards went to Malabar in search of `pepper corn` where the Jewish refugees (driven by Romans) and Syrian Christians had set up business and still do.
        Mesopotamia , Ziggurat was made of clay- the Arabs did not come from the Nile to Lanka to stay.

The East India Company enslaved hundreds of thousands of people on the spice islands and states, massacred and perpetrated a genocide against the inhabitants of the Bandas Islands to protect its nutmeg monopoly. Cinnamon was for common but nutmeg was for aristocrats.

      Wordsmyth,

      You seem to come out only when Ron Ridenour has an article about TK. I remember seeing you the last time there was a similar article. Unlike you, I have been commenting for years. I have been in the US, in Washington DC, for more than two decades and have closely followed US politics and government.

      And I have deep connections in the Tamil community to know all about the TGTE. I occasionally write some commentary on my blog, which you can find by clicking on my blog; it will show that I have nothing to don with Ridenour. Your insinuations about the nexus between TGTE, the US Administration, NED, etc. is utterly without any basis. It is typical of the outdated drivel peddled by die-hard Marxists and ultra-left conspiracy theorists, very much in the mold of TK ( that is perhaps yourself) and DJ. You all seek to gloss over your support for the criminal, murderous Rajapaksa regime by seeking cover in your anti-Imperialist, anti-US Marxist rhetoric. But it won’t fly. Nobody with any sense buys it.

      I have talked to many Cuban Americans and Puerto Ricans to know that the rose-tinted views of Castro and his revolution held by people like you (and indeed Ridenour) have no basis.

      That the UNP under JRJ was responsible for the 83 riots, and Ranil W then was a junior minister in the GoSL, is well-known. But that has nothing to do with their being pro or anti-US. Indeed it was the likes of Gotabhaya, Basil, Fonseka, et al. who were seeking US citizenship.
      Also, the LTTE targeted anyone whom they perceived as standing in their way, not just the Tamil left. There was not much of Tamil left to speak of by the 1970’s. The Tamil left had become marginal and irrelevant in the face of the rise of GoSL atrocities and in response Tamil nationalism.

      I have nothing to do with Wickremabahu or his Marxist rhetoric, but I knew that he was a professor at Peradeniya and he was dismissed by the then GoSL for his forthright political views; he seemed more principled than than most on the Sinhala left. He wouldn’t have aligned with Ranil W. if the old left had stood independent and principled, rather than aligning with the murderous Rajapaksa regime and legitimizing its white van abductions torture, corruption, lawlessness and massive war crimes.

      What got this rant going?

      The pure coincidence of Karunaratne article in Colombo today or the correct terminology and use of Eelam Tamil.
      Agee, an fled UK too Holland and testified in the second Bertrand Russell Tribunal in Brussels in 1975. Bertrand Russell Tribunal became the Permanent Peoples Tribunal, PPT. Ridenour, who too fled his native United States of America in disgust tells us “Bertrand Russell was one of several thousand demonstrators against the law, in 1961, in London” and lists three pogroms preceding 1983. While explaining that SLFP and UNP are only the other sides of the same coin Ridenour also points out that the PPT has corrctly described this same coin as genocide.
      If UNP’s 1983 pogrom is missed that contributes to keeping the excellent article short. You should acknowledge the pogroms conducted by the SLFP and severe ties to genocidal party politics.
      Maybe Agee wrote about devious people like you?

      Its never too late to repent.

      Amen.

    Tamara can’t save the most foolish regime in the history of Sri Lanka. The country has been fighting since the independence. Every six months the world is passing new resolution on the country at the UNHRC meetings. But they are dreaming for wonder of Asia and superior country. They have failed to acknowledge their hatred towards their fellow countrymen. They must liberate themselves from their hatred. While I was in Sri Lanka I wanted to visit few tourist places, but they refused to sell local tickets to me. As soon as they heard my Sinhala accent, they asked my identity card. I said I was born in the North. They didn’t ask ID card from Sinhalese, because they spoke perfect Sinhala. If they have hired a Tamil, he/she would have understood my Jaffna Tamil accent. I never paid foreigners’ fee, I simply walked-out.
    Recently, I saw a documentary on “reconciling and rebuilding”, in the documentary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa is struggling to finish one sentence in English without stumbling for words. It is a disgraceful to the country; and shameful to the United States, because he is an American citizen too. The regime is heading to China to get help at the UNHRC meeting. I will campaign to the Chinese communist party to keep the distance from the least educated regime in the history of Sri Lanka. If the Chinese communist regime supports the Rajapaksa fools then I will tell the Asian leaders that the Chinese communist regime is undermine the Asia’s stability by backing the thugs. Do not ever think that the Chinese communist regime has the capability to fight against the West, India and Japan. I will make the Chinese communist party feel very uncomfortable in Asia and in the world. Wait and see what is about to unfold. The Rajapaksa regime thinks it is smart; wait and see how smart it is.
    The world is far smarter and talented in foreign dealings than the foolish Rajapaksas’ relatives and friends who serve as diplomats all over the world. It is over; it is just a matter of time to see the Rajapaksa brothers have been thrown out from their power. The foolish Rajapaksa regime has been dreaming to rule Sri Lanka for another twenty years. But I have a message for the Sri Lanka’s most foolish regime “it is over, pack up and leave, or we will make you to leave.”

    Ron Ridenour,
    The Brits and the world learnt trading from VOC and they have had more influence on South India and Ceylon. Kerala and Karanataka have destroyed copies of evidence like the sihala but Chennai has plus Andaman is close to Chennai by boat to see the great andamanese people (UN study ongoing for people) who are the same as veddha the indegenous folk not the dalit slaves sinhalese or tamils. Here is some ideas and connections if you care to research as I have seen them all in person 10 year study India and 10 at China.

    Kingdom of Bisnagar by the Portuguese was the cause of kallathonies from the west. The kandayan kingdom protected by the Dutch put a stop to that. The Dutch Coromandel Necklace of ports (21) stretching from the kingdom Pallava influenced ruled southern tip to Patna Bihar was the cause of kallathonies influx from the east. The British was the cause of the hills being populated by Tamils of TN.-all dalit slaves may be amounting to 4-5 million in 300 years. If you could have one on how these Dalit Slaves came. These are guys who came tied and ran into the jungles when authority changed.

    VOC has invoiced proof that SB were picked up from Karanataka and Kerala the slave state for pepper. The Dutch East India Company, or Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie (VOC), was a joint stock company Nutmeg the aristocrat’s spice. It was the first multinational corporation in the world and the first company to issue stock.It was also the world’s first megacorporation, possessing quasi-governmental powers, including ability to wage war, imprison and excute convicts, negotiate treaties , coin money, and establish colonies. Statistically, the VOC eclipsed all the trade routes of its rivals. Between 1602 and 1796. Throughout its history, the VOC made massive profits by exploiting and killing local people in the colonies. The East India Company enslaved hundreds of thousands of people on the Indonesian islands, massacred Chinese citizens of Batavia (Jakarta), and perpetrated a genocide against the inhabitants of the Bandas Islands to protect its nutmeg monopoly. In addition, the settlers at the Dutch refueling station at Capetown, South Africa, began systematically exterminating or enslaving South Africans – the early precursor to the apartheid system that would end only in 1991.
