The World Condemns Trump’s Intransigence

By Mass L. Usuf

Mass Usuf

Jenifer Lewis the 60-year-old singer, actress and activist, who lived with undiagnosed bipolar disorder and a sex addiction through her 20s says, “I don’t hate him.  I feel sorry for him because I know what mental illness is. On top of his mental illness, he is a sociopath. They don’t have feelings”, (brut.footage:thegrio). This is in reference to the American President Donald Trump. 

Sociopathic condition in adults is said to be a lack of empathy, a lack of remorse, irritability and an inability to engage in close relationships, along with continued rule breaking. Individuals also may display odd behaviours and experience distorted and paranoid thinking. (Excerpted from Encyclopaedia Britannica).

An increasing number of Americans are of the opinion that Trump is not only making a mess of the United States locally but, also, endangering its security and goodwill internationally. Unfortunately, for the American people they are witnessing an unexpected litany of blunders, cover ups and all the wrong things. 

Trump Blunders

Trump undermined international cooperation on climate change — and America’s credibility on the world stage — out of mindless spite by opting out of the Paris agreement, fired the director of the FBI for failing to demonstrate personal loyalty to him, over Twitter abandoned an alliance with a long time Middle East ally– The State of Qatar, praised Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte for his policy of sanctioning the extrajudicial killings of thousands of suspected drug dealers and users, used his Executive authority over banning thousands of Muslim immigrants creating chaos at airports all across America and the world, hired Michael Flynn as national security adviser, a man who was later charged and pleaded guilty for lying to the FBI on the Russian investigation, baselessly accused his predecessor Obama of illegally wiretapping his phones and the list continues. (For a detailed list of Trump blunders see: All the Terrifying Things That Donald Trump Did Lately by Eric Levitz).

Sociopathic Condition

Individuals subjected to certain mental phenomenon may display odd behaviours and experience distorted and paranoid thinking. As to whether the above and many others not listed here has any bearing on Trump’s mental condition is a diagnosis that only a Psychiatrist could determine. However, his latest decision to recognise Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel, seem to weigh much on the likelihood of a sociopathic condition. Again, subject to psychiatric expert opinion. When one sees the definition given above of a sociopath – lack of empathy, a lack of remorse, continued rule breaking – a pattern may be identified in Trump’s behaviour. Let’s see some more facts.

The Trump decision is an infringement of several UN resolutions. United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 298, adopted on 25 September 1971 confirmed in “the clearest possible terms” that all actions taken by Israel to change the status of Jerusalem, such as land confiscation, were illegal. Later that year, UN Resolution 478, which was adopted on August 20, 1980, called on all states “that have established diplomatic missions” in Jerusalem to withdraw them from the city. Just two out more than 200 United Nations Resolutions against Israel.

Special UNSC Meeting

Eight (France, Bolivia, Egypt, Italy, Senegal, Sweden, Britain and Uruguay) of the fifteen-member UN Security Council had called for an urgent special meeting on Friday (8th) to discuss the unilateral decision taken by Washington recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The outcome of the meeting was that the United States found itself isolated at the Security Council meeting.

“The status of Jerusalem must be determined through negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians leading to a final status agreement,” the five European nations said in a statement at the end of the meeting. The statement also said, that until that occurs, the EU will not recognize any sovereignty over Jerusalem. The European Union “has a clear and united position: we believe that the only realistic solution to the conflict between Israel and Palestine is based on two States, and with Jerusalem as the capital of both the State of Israel and the State of Palestine,” the statement said, indicating that until that occurs, the EU will not recognize any sovereignty over Jerusalem.

Negative Reactions Worldwide

Who supported the decision? No one except Israel. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said, “I have consistently spoken out against any unilateral measures that would jeopardise the prospect of peace for Israelis and Palestinians. Jerusalem was a final-status issue that should be resolved through direct talks.”

Several news media reported strong condemnations from the close Western and Arab allies of the United States and other Muslim countries. 

The Iraqi government demanded Washington to backtrack on its decision to avoid fuelling terrorism. It cautioned against the dangerous repercussions on the stability of the region and the world. Top Iraqi Shia cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani said the move “hurt the feelings of hundreds of millions of Arabs and Muslims”. Similar views were expressed by the Lebanese President Aoun.  He said Trump’s decision threatens the peace process and stability of the region. Egypt also denounced Trump’s decision and said that Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital did not change the city’s legal status.  Syrian President, Bashar al Assad said the Palestinian cause will stay alive among Arabs until the establishment of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital. Qatari Foreign Minister said Trump’s decision is a “dangerous escalation and death sentence for all who seek peace.” Jordan condemned the US President’s move as amounting to a violation of international law and the UN charter.

Iran‘s foreign ministry said the US action will “incite Muslims and inflame a new intifada and encourage extremism and violent behaviour for which the responsibility will lie with (the United States) and the Zionist regime (Israel).” Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak called on Muslims everywhere to strongly oppose the US move.  Turkey‘s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Mr Trump was “throwing the region into a ring of fire”. “What do you want to do Mr. Trump? What kind of an approach is this? Political leaders exist not to create struggles but to make peace,” he said. Indonesia “asks the US to reconsider the decision.”

French President Emmanuel Macron said “This is a regrettable decision that France does not approve of and goes against international law and all the resolutions of the UN Security Council.” German Chancellor Angela Merkel the government does not support the Trump administration’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. British Prime Minister Theresa May said: “We disagree with the US decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem and recognise Jerusalem as the Israeli capital before a final status agreement,” Leader of Britain’s Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, called Trump’s decision “a reckless threat to peace.”

Blood-soaked Hands

The world can now start counting the number of Palestinian deaths and those injured on a daily basis. Their blood is in the hands of Donald Trump for being the cause of this new cycle of violence. The Israelis with its firepower would mercilessly brutalise the Palestinian uprising as seen in the many past massacres. The Israelis respond to the stone throwing Palestinians with missile strikes from the air and artillery fire from the land. Then claim that it is in response to rockets fired by Hamas.  This story of the Israelis deception has now become old and boring.  They need to come up with some new lies to justify their inhuman brutalisation of a people whose land they have forcefully occupied.

In the final analysis, it seems that what Jenifer Lewis mentioned about Trump as mentally ill and a sociopath has some credibility to it.

As for the stand of Sri Lanka – over to you Mr. President, Mr. Prime Minister and Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa an erstwhile supporter of the Palestinian people. The Municipal Council of Beitunia in Palestine has named a road after him, “H.E Mahinda Rajapaksa Road.”

    Mr. Usuf,
    Ms. Jenifer Lewis’s assessment is correct. I met several academics, renowned fellows and psychiatrics returning from a medical conference in the USA last month. I struck an intriguing and humorous conversation with them on the plane. Several of these professionals had to say this of President Trump’s mannerisms and behavior that Trump is a sociopath and that he suffers from what’s called “misogynistic narcissism”. What went through my mind was “Nazism”. Since a few in that entourage hailed from Germany and Austria, I did not want to add my two cents to a topic I knew nothing about. Even if we excuse Mr. Trump as a sociopath or psychopath, what I don’t understand is his advisors, their thinking or the lack of any. They seem to be worse off than Trump by sharing in Trump’s dementia. They express worse sentiments than Trump himself by making the world a much dangerous place. It further puts American interest around the globe at risk, and at the same time, loses whatever credibility left of the USA. His advisors seem to worse than Trump himself. For example, look at this asinine woman Nicky Nimrata Haley, the US’s UN ambassador. The woman is a disgrace to her Indian parents who might have shat that woman to this world. This Trump administration has made the USA into a Kakistocracy and a mockery around the world. This must be God’s plan to weaken a former super power. Recently, ex-President Obama forewarned all Americans of the threat the USA is facing. The current leadership is not only a dictatorship but a ship full of mental patients. Obama courageously echoed and warned all Americans that if they do not participate in the democratic electoral process and take their civic duty seriously, this will be the end of USA. To the rest of us, this looks like Armageddon where the rest of the world unites to fight against the great Satan-the USA and their terror state of Israel. As for the stand of Sri Lanka, throw GoatabayR, the Jew conspirator to burn in that ‘hellfire’.

      WalaGemba Raja: Your Christian ideology will not work. No one empire in history were not taken down by others. IT is they themselves which took it down. So, forget your armageddon. Your thinking on Trump is also wrong. think about his mental agony. He came accusing the conventional politicians. He was not briefed, I believe, before the the end of the presidential run. Because, no one believed that he would win. So, he understood the real situation. Now, he is blaming every one in the world except their own machinery. It is mostly their Narcissam. . USA wants the whole world in shanty countries. So can dominate the world. Roman Kingdom also tried similar things. So, Iran, Syria, russia, china are in the list. North Korea is a decoy to hide their own internal problems. Anyway, no one is eternal. They slowly go down and some else take that position. that is simply impermanent nature of everything.

        Jimmy the DIMWIT and you DUMMY,
        Trump did not win if not for an archaic electoral college system that itself is a factor of the down word spiral of that country. Hillary surpassed Trump by almost 3 million votes and that with no help of outside actors like Russia which really bombarded dirt and fake news against Hillary. What the heck do you DICK’s no about the voting and demographics in the US or even in your back yard. Go get your head examined you fascist RETARD!

    What we a witnessing now is the emergence of the long-subdued Hidden Face of the Ugly American; and Donald J Trump is their Messiah. They will cheer his every tweet. They will urge him to more feats of derring-do. They want an insular America that couldn’t give a fig for what the world thinks. They couldn’t care less as to who fills the vacuum of global leadership that they abandon. They, who voted him in, want an America that takes, not gives. Perhaps the rest of the world will now wake up, and surely the overwhelming numbers of decent Americans will ensure that when the time comes they will have the right person to oust this abomination. That is, if in the meantime, Trump, together with his North Korean nemesis, do not condemn us to Armageddon.

      Spring Koha,
      I agree with whole-heartedly. Irony is this. Evangelical Christian fundamentalists, the religious cousins of Mr.Mass Usuf’s Islamic faith, are the biggest fans of President Orangutan. Those religious fanatics & hypocrites , this time Christian, not Islamic for a change are at the forefront in Climate Change Denial. Their inhumane support of Israel at the expense of poor Palestinians is routed in religion. Not in Justice or law. For Christian religious fanatics Palestine tragedy is not about politics. But, a Cosmic Battle for End Times. Religious Hypocrites in America are simply using mentally-ill President Orangutan to implement their insane Biblical agenda. So do the hypocrites of the Islamic world. Most notably Corrupt Saudi Royals and Military Junta in Egypt. I bet Jerusalem recognition was discussed with Corrupt Saudi Royals in advance by Trump and tacit approval was sought. Saudi condemnations are for the stupid Wahabi gallery at home. Cheers!

    Arabs are disunited useless people. Saudis are in bed with USA; Saudi Arabia has the largest American weapons stockpile. US has secret bases 50 miles from their sacred holy sites. Israel is a democracy albeit a flawed one. Egypt and Jordan are smarter nations to have open diplomatic relations with Israel and trade with them. Iran has obsolete weapons. Iran are Persian Shias; in fairness to Iran, there was indeed a distinct Persian empire on record; one that was defeated by Alexander the Great the butt-sex Conqueror and his Greek butt-sex is good Army from Macedonia.

    No such record of a Glorious History for Arabs EXCEPT with Egypt. In the 20th and 21st centuries, Arab contribution to civilization is nil. Saudis, and others have only one resource: Oil; they do not have the brains, the intellect and the perseverance of the Jews and Israel the nation state.

    Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq etc are nations carved out by Sykes-Picot Agreement; less known is its correct name: officially known as the Asia Minor Agreement. It, was a secret 1916 agreement between the United Kingdom and France, to which the Russian Empire assented. The agreement defined their mutually agreed spheres of influence and control in Southwestern Asia.

    Palestinians and Arabs lost East Jerusalem in 1967, 6 Day-war and Israel annexed it later. Why would they give it back? It was Arabs who attacked Israel 3 times and learnt bitter lessons. Golan Heights cannot be given back to Syria because of water.

    Arabs are corrupt and have lower IQs than Jews. Palestine should be merged with Israel. They’re smarter than Arabs.

    Why are you Ceylonese Tamil speaking, Dravidian DNA Muslims think you are Arab? You are Ceylonese/Sri Lankans and you should stick to talking about issues in your nation and in your part of the world such as India. India and US and Israel are very close now; they have tight military relationships. Notice Modi did not speak out against Trump. Why? Because of self interests.

    You are not Arab. Even your Tamil speaking Kattankudy Jihadi type house-maids get raped in Saudi Arabia and other places like Kuwait and Qatar by Sunni Arabs. Arabs are not very smart. This little tussle will go quiet soon. Saudis want to work with Israel and USA to launch a war against the Persian Shia Iran. Which side will you Tamil Muslim support then? Fat filthy corrupt Saudi Arabia or your Shia opposing nation of Iran?

      You are right. But most of the Muslims in Srilanka, despite their Tamil origin essentially from India wish to get the best of both worlds or (rather best of all worlds) as Muslims are all over. Of course there are some Muslims who say that the are Tamils by race and Islam by religion.

You are writing here with a pseudo name but you belong to those Australoid crows clique whose writing style is same, that is irrespective of the subject written they comment only about Sri Lanka Moors ethnicity. The original tree climbing bastards filled with hatred towards Moors. May be your Australoid crow women running after Arab dicks.

    Rather queer you mention Qatar here. Your so called keeper of the faith Kingdom of Saudi Arabia(KSA) is choking Qatar. Qatar is moderate and wanted to normalize relations with Shia Persian(they are not Arabs but a superior civilization). KSA, UAE, Kuwait put an embargo on Qatar. Where the hell were you then? you are a tamil dravidian muslim Ceylonese. You kept quiet when KSA harassed Qatar. Also note Qatar and Bahrain have large US military presence which protects the fat Arab Ruling class too. This will pass and nothing will happen. Iran maybe attacked by KSA-USA-Israel Troika. Where will you be ? I have not seen your write ups about the unjust embargo on Qatar by KSA.

      Goldstein,

      KSA, Qatar or Iran, we in the investment world usually like turmoil in the Middle East. We are investors of OIL. Should Iran and KSA goto war with each other, there is a very big likelihood that Iran will enforce a blockade on the Straits of Hormuz. Should that happen Oil will go to $200 a barrel and our investments will flourish.

      And don’t rule out Russia in all this. Don’t worry about an irrelevant Muslim Ceylonese, whose side do you think Russia will be in?

    The Middle-east issue is not a concern for Buddhist’s and Hindus- who opposed the savages from the middle-east between the 7th and 14th century. Because of Sinhalese heroism this country avoided becoming a hellholes like Bangladesh and Pakistan.

    The Ceylon gazetteer:
    Simon Casie Chitty – 1838

    In the time of Taniwella Bahoo (tamwalla Abhaya) who was the last that reigned at Madampe, an attempt was made by the Moors to form a settlement at Chilaw, and accordingly their chieftain anchored in the bay with a large fleet and army. In this however they did not succeed; for the above king, in concert with his brother SakallaWalla Abhaya, attacked them in their landing, totally routed their forces, and killed the chieftain.

    Twentieth Century Impressions of Ceylon: Its History, People, …
    Arnold Wright – 1907 –
    A thousand years ago the Mahomedan invasion swept like a hurricane over the greater part of Inrfia, destroying all the old institutions ; and on the sites of the destroyed ancient greatness were built new creeds and alien faiths. But the glorious inheritance of Aryan ancestors, uncontaminated by Semitic and savage ideas, though lost to India, has been preserved by the Aryan Sinhalese in the luxuriant isle of Ceylon.

      Niro stop attacking Muslims. I know you are sad about thinking about your fairy tales past during which period you all were tree climbing idiots. It was Muslims who brought so much colour and civilization to India and Sri Lanka. Later only colonialist brought more civilization and education. Know the real history.

        “It was Muslims who brought so much colour and civilization to India and Sri Lanka. Later only colonialist brought more civilization and education. Know the real history.”

        Could you cite evidence for “Muslims who brought so much colour and civilization to India and Sri Lanka” that is after 610 CE when “Muhammad began receiving what Muslims consider to be divine revelations”. I am happy you have discovered there was no “colour and civilization to India and Sri Lanka”. Therefore Indus Valley civilisation must have started after 610CE. Its an interesting theory.

            Amarasiri does a wonderful service to forum sharers in this website, he educates the ignorant, ill-informed and the morons, difficult but I guess he believes its doable. .

            “You can find it for yourself. You tell me what colour and civilization Indus Valley gave or had?”

            No if you can’t, I can’t. I do not know your sources and how you arrive at the conclusion when Muslim existed since 610 CE whereas there have been other civilisation much older what you described as

            Indus Valley Achievements

            They were among the first to develop a system of uniform weights and measures.
            Their building bricks were very uniform making city planning easy.
            This was the first civilization to incorporate urban sanitation systems.
            Personal hygiene seems to have been a high priority.
            Their art was highly advanced.
            Terracotta, steatite and bronze human and animal figurines with anatomically correct proportions have been found.
            Their jewelry was complex and considered beautiful by today’s standards. Long carnelian beads were a specialty.
            Transportation and trade were major goals of these people. Their trade network ran from Mesopotamia to northern and central India.
            Their empire was economic, not military.
            Indus Valley Civilization agriculture was based upon a highly productive method of raising, storing and transporting domesticated wheat and barley and other crops.
            They had a written script, mostly used on inscribed seals.
            The language and scripts are still being investigated and are controversial.
            Formal religion was highly advanced and included burial and cremation of human remains.

            This is more than enough for the time being. Harappan phase 2600 – 1900 BC not 610 CE.

              Native Vedda, you and Amarsiri write bullshit not intelligent opinions to educate people. How can you give intelligent views by copying from Wiki. There are so many anti-Muslim, Islamophobic website all out to attack Islam and Muslims. Even Shia Muslims and other Sect’s websites all out to attack Sunnis. So can one write intelligently by copying from those? There are dead and gone old civilization everywhere. Ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Mayas, Greek, China, Indus Valley etc. China have a continuous written civilization of 3500. While these civilization may have contributed to later civilization but you cannot call them glorious civilization. People at that time may call it glorious by comparing other civilizations few hundred years back with them. Glorious civilization started after Islam. Since Islam makes learning compulsory, second phase of glorious civilization grew there. Muslims translated works of ancient Greeks, Chinese, Indians, Phoenicians etc. and invented many things in every sphere like science, medicine, Mathematics, Astronomy, Philosophy etc. Rather than calling it glorious you can say golden age of civilization. Europe was in Dark Age at that time but because of the encouragement of one Pope (who did not encourage killing anybody going against Christian’s teaching) to learn from Muslim, they came and studied and translated the Muslim’s works. Because of this the renaissance of Europe was born.

                “Glorious civilization started after Islam. “

                Islam started only in 610CE. The age of the earth is about 4.54 billion years .

                I will have to believe you after knowing what had happened to Bamiyan Buddha statues, perhaps the modern day Muslims want to start afresh from year zero.

                  Read my second part and answer. I already said you and Amarasiri write irrelevant way. What 4.54 billion earth got to do with our comments. According to Anthropologist very early human beings lived in caves and ate raw food. Was that the start of your Indus valley civilization. Old rulers built biggest statues as possible whether it was religious or otherwise. This is the way they satisfied priests and people. Now even in Sri Lanka and India they are doing this. Tell me how these improves the science, culture and advancement of civilization. The biggest mistake they did was destroying Bamiyan Buddha. In Muslim countries there are enough old statues and other artifacts. Nobody worshiping them and nobody will worship Bamiyan Buddha. These fools did this for political reason forgetting the many millions that will come from tourist coming to see old artifacts. If a legitimate government was there whether dictatorship or democracy such things would have not taken place. Because Islam started 650CE you don’t want to accept their glorious. Then why the hell are you following western glorious civilization which started few hundreds years back. Don’t use computers, don’t use any telecommunication device, don’t use western medicines, don’t study in the universities they gave, trow the western administration systems and law, don’t use their modern transports, don’t use electricity. In short throw everything and bring back your glorious Indus Valley civilization and education. Muddy Headed.

              Continued.
              So after the golden period the glorious period started in Europe. You can call this glorious civilization or continuation of glorious period. Technologically advanced age. Do you think such glorious age existed in Indus valley or in any other places? Today you can see more than 1000 years old universities like Al-Azhar, Al-Nizamia, Al-Kareoine, Muslim universities in Cordoba etc. Ibn Sina’s (Avicenna) works called Al-Qanun, (Canon) the medical studies in book form was used in European Universities for over 300 years, and formed half the medical curriculum. This is just one. So tell me what Indus Valley works or later other Indians works used by European Universities. So what I meant by saying colour and civilization was brought to India by Traders and Mughals was those golden age people brought advancement in every sphere like later the glorious European age people brought the recent advancement. This is an undeniable fact. If you can explain it was otherwise, please do it here. I am giving below links to Islamic website from which you can get some insight. You cannot upload to this website any fabricated history like they do in the Wiki. If you want you can contact them and challenge any untruth in it. If you can prove they will gracefully accept it and alter or delete the information they had given.

        Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia was formed in 1932 as an Islamic kingdom on the
        Arabian peninsula, an area viewed as worthless desert until the discovery of oil later in the decade.

        His expansion into Hijaz in 1925 took place at a time when Britain was growing tired of SharifHusayn’s demands, perceived as a threat to British interests. Britain was more than happy to see Sharif Husayn removed from Hijaz, leaving his sons, Faysal and (Abdullah, on the thrones of two newly created monarchies in Trans-Jordan and Iraq. Throughout the 1920s and 1930s, Britain remained the main external player behind the formation of the Sa’udi state.

        In fact, the country that became known as Saudi Arabia almost immediately had border disputes with Hussein’s son Abdullah, after Great Britain created Transjordan for him from territory that included parts of Arabia. Because Great Britain essentially controlled the two Hashemite kingdoms, Ibn Saud also sought close relations with the British.

        Ralli Ammen you are a racist attacking others with lies. There was a glorious civilisation in India prior to the arrival of Mughals, who destroyed them. Have you heard of Indus valley civilisation of Dravidian people considered to be the oldest one in the world. This is at a time when ancestors of Muslims like Persians and Arabs were roaming as nomads, only knowing to put up tents. Tamil is declared as the oldest language in the world and when Tamils were communicating with others in speech and writing, ancestors of Muslims were using sign language or squeaking like apes. When Tamils were going about in Chariots, Muslims knew only to ride camels and donkeys. When Tamils were exhibiting their culinary skills, Muslims knew only to roast the meat. So what is this talk about Muslims bringing civilisation to India. Even in Srilanka all Buddhist monuments are pre-Islamic. If you cannot take part in this columns in a decent manner please leave.

If you say there was a glorious civilization in India prior to arrival of Mughals, Tamils were going about in Chariots, had culinary and other experts then today you should be flying on Saucers, should have mouth watering culinary food instead thosai, wadai and sambar; women and men in glorious dress few hundred years back instead of women bear breast and men in scanty covering, open ground were toilets which practice is still carried on; should have beautiful dwelling instead of mud huts, automated carts instead of bullock carts etc etc…. I don’t think you have anything to show as your own except those ruins thousand of years back. Those Indus Valley civilization up to now no Archaeologist or Anthropologist could absolutely say such and such race was here and the reason for its disappearance. After Mughals and Muslim traders from Persia and Arabia Indian learned colourful civilization and modern civilization after colonialist. The prefix Dr itself from other civilization. To tell you frankly I am not a racist but I speak the truth.

            Ralli Amen, your claim that you are not a racist sounds hollow. How many times in this column you have insulted Tamils as Crows. Is this not racism. In any western country you will be charged for racial hatred for this. Secondly are you serious about your statement that you are speaking the truth. Your posturing will only be applauded in a bigoted sycophantic Islamic crowd and not in any intellectual audience. Go through facts before commenting in a foolish manner. The oldest civilisation according to archaeologists is Indus Valley of Dravidians, others being Nile valley of Coptic Egyptians, Mesopotamia of Sumerians, Yellow River of Chinese and Mayan/Aztec/Inca of South Americans. Nothing of worth is mentioned about Arabic, Persian or any other Muslim civilisation Oldest Language according to linguists is Tamil, and they feel at one stage every one in the world spoke Tamil or some form of Tamil. Neither Arabic or Persian or any language of modern day Muslims are in the first ten.The oldest religion as per experts is Hinduism while Islam is lying in the lowly tenth position. If you notice Tamils are heir to all three first categories. So how come Arabs, Persians or any other Muslim ethnic group be superior to Tamils. Please shed your Islamic racist mentality and accept the conclusion of international experts. Please stop attacking others in any racial tones and take part in the debate in a decent manner I am sure if one of them call you a swine, you will be offended.

              Dr. Gnana Sankaralingam, yes I insult only those Tamils who attack Muslims, specially Ceylon Moors in degrading ways. I call them as Australoid crows. If a Muslim writer write an article whether it is about MMDA, Rohingya or anything relating to Muslims, the first thing those bunch of Australoid crows write is about Moors ethnicity, a lowly way calling them low caste Tamil converts etc. etc. An intelligent, decent person when commenting will give their views on the subject. Sinhalese, Tamils, Malays, Moors, Burghers or other ethnic communities will call themselves with the established ethnic names. So what is pricking those Australoid crows and why these bastard have so much hatred toward Moors. If they want they can do research and write a book on Moors ethnicity, nobody will stop them. There were many descent Tamil writers in CT forum. I never give my comment and if I do I point out their mistakes decent way. So for those dirty writers I have to point out who they are but I am not a racist. As for civilization I must tell you even stone age people too had a civilization, like climbing a ladder slowly improved toward other civilization. The civilization you are pointing out were not even in the middle of the ladder. Islamic civilization was on the 3/4th of the ladder and western Civilization on top. These two civilization only made the world to be as it is today. Whether you like it or not you all are following what these civilization gave. Just forget the unproven Indus Valley civilization. If any one of them call me swine I will call them back swine.

                Ralli Ameen, you do not bark back when a dog barks at you. If you feel offended at their accusing you as low class coverts, then you have to prove that you are not. That is not considered a racist statement but calling one a crow is racist. Two recent genetic studies conducted by Sinhala scholars have found that the core genetic material in Srilanka moors is south Indian with less than 10% west Asian input. If you do not agree with the findings then you must subject yourself to genetic testing and publish it. It is well known that South Indian Muslims are converts of low caste Hindus not necessarily Tamils. Facts are stubborn and you need not get angry about it. Even in Srilanka, Arabs did not bring their women with them when they came, but co-habited with mostly Sinhala women and a few Tamil women. So even in the first generation Srilanka moor is only 50% Arab, which got diluted subsequently. If these women were of either high class or high caste family then Srilanka Moor should able to link their ancestry to any high caste Sinhala or Tamil family. This is why comments are being made about the low caste background of Srilanka Moors. If you say that you are being wrongly categorised, prove it without anger. Secondly your statement that Indus valley civilisation is unproven is laughable. This was discovered by chance by British archaeologists during British rule. You are contesting the expert views on this and asking to forget it simply because it is not Islamic. Since neither north Indians nor Pakistanis were interested about it, nothing further took place. Now it is in Pakistani territory and if they permit further research with modern technology new lights will be thrown on it. You say that none of the civilisation mentioned by me were not even in the middle of the ladder, and Islamic civilisation was on the 3/4th of the ladder. How can Islam which is only 1600 years old produce a civilisation above others which are much older. According to experts, Tamil is 5000 years old while Arabic or Persian are less than 2000 years old.Have you heard that a civilisation of over 10,000 years has been found in Settikulam in Mannar recently by Sinhala archaeologists. So please do not display your ignorance and it is a pity that you have been brain washed by false Islamic propaganda.

                  Gnana Sankaralingam, I don’t bark back when dog bark because I know it is an animal. When dogs in human form bark I bark at them. I didn’t want to add the prefix Dr in front of your name because it seem you too belong to those Australoid crow type. I said a person commenting should stick to comments relevant to the article, not about race of others. I said if they are so concerned of Moors ethnicity, they can do research including your DNA test and write a book. Furthermore can challenge the government not to group Moors separately. Nobody will stop. So see what you are writing here, about low caste. So tell me can DNA test prove the cast of human beings? Also tell me who held the lamp while Arabs were screwing your women (lost caste for you) or tell me who wrote the statistic of low caste Tamil converting to Islam and that Tamils came to Sri Lanka? These are dreams of Australoid crows and their racist opinions. Moors themselves say they are of mixed origin, may be you and your kind want us to say we are Australoid crow origin. To write short, before the migration of people from west, in many places of India the people living there were of Australoid origin. Trickle of migration to India from west was taking place from those days including Aryans. It became increased after Alexandra’s invasion. When more people from the west came those Australoids in North were pushed down to South. In order to stop mixing with Australoid they invented a cast system to keep them on top as Brahmins. Mixing of races unavoidable and by this mixing Australoids features improved so now we have Keralites, Telungu, Kannada, Tamils.

                    Or I forgot to mention what I meant by ladder. That is if you put each civilization on a time line what will be on the bottom of ladder will be the stone age cave people so the beginning of step has to be over 10,000 years. No need to go that far, we shall take known ones within 4,000 BC. So Mesopotamia 3600 BC will be in bottom followed upward by ancient Egypt 3,100 BC, Babylon 2,800 BC, Greek 2,700 BC, Indus Valley 2,600 BC, ancient China 2,600 BC, Incas 1,400 BC, Aztec 1,350 BC , Persia 550 BC Roman 500 BC. There were discoveries very old settlements 5,000 to 7,000 BC but those cannot be recognized as civilization because of lack or prominent artifacts and cuneiform writing. Golden age of Islam begun after 750 AD and by studying science and philosophy Islam gave European renaissance on these begun after 1200 AD. From those day up to now it developed faster in Europe. So Main two contributing civilization were Middle-east and Europe. They were over 3/4th of the ladder according to time line. Wooden wheel was discovered by Sumerians over 3,000 BC but it had only a hole in the place of axis. Later it was developed with rods and spoke by other civilization. Human beings climbed the ladder step by step from contribution from all past civilization. So you know what I meant by ladder.

                  Continued.
                  But still you can see their Australoid features and high percentage in Tamilnadu. Dravidian is not race but the closely related languages spoken in South India. This word was coined by a western historian. The people of Indus Valley civilization and their writings still a mystery. All attempt to decipher their writing failed. Their race, kings, soldiers, system not known up to now. Due to some catastrophe those majority Indus valley people too migrated to India before Aryans. They too were absorbed into Australoid races. You don’t need DNA test, you go around Tamilnadu including other South Indian places and North Sri Lanka and your eye will see the proof. Pakistanis are carrying out further exploration of Indus Valley. There was another civilization in Pakistan province called Mehrgarh. They think those people migrated to Indus Valley. Even Egypt civilization is not 100% proved. Archeologist can now give the date correctly with advanced test but rest are built on speculations on remaining artefacts. Not only Pakistan even other reputed Archeologist will welcome you with both hands if you have advanced scientific method to decipher Indus valley writing and to prove what their race, kings, cultures etc. So don’t write bullshit, it is bloody shame calling yourself a Doctor. Pioneers of human genetic studies says race is not a biological concept. The percentage of your genetic variation and markers can be found in other races in all over the world. What can be genetically proved is your immediate kith and kin like father, son, daughter, mother, brother etc. So those companies which promise to show their ancestors are fraud. Can you give the name of one reputed Geneticist who says race and ethnicity can be proved by genetic?

    Read The Bible. The answer is very, very clear as to why these things are happening. The Book of Jeremiah is very clear. Read Jer. 30: 2 to 4. 7b,10,11, 12. I have been commenting on these issues because, having read the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelations several times, I knowthat the writing is true and accurate, and what God says, He will do. All this angry rhetoric and blood-shed can be avoided and we can live in peace IF the world will accept this simple fact: The Lord God called Abram and gave him the land of Canaan and said, “I will bless you and through you ALL nations will be blessed. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you”.

    Stop blaming Donald Trump. “The heart of the king is in the hands of the Lord. He directs it, like a stream….” It is a matter of time before more nations move their embassies to Jerusalem, the city of David, the Holy City,

      k. sousa, you have so much love toward Jews because were brain washed by Jews origin bible. Judaism does not mention about Jesus and they don’t take Jesus as son of god or prophet. All the Christians in Jerusalem put out Christmas illumination in protest of US recognising Jerusalem as Israel capitol. What kind of Christian are you?

    Roman Emperor Hadrian 135 A.D gave name Palestina to Israel to erase it off the map and to remember the Philistines of 5 west coast cities of Ashdod, Ashkelon, Gaza, Gath and Ekron. He burned Jerusalem temple and city and put his name on it Aelia Capitolina. Most Jews were dispersed and the land lay desolate. Arab conquerors built mosques on temple mount. With reestablishment of Israel in 1948, and Jerusalem recaptured and restored in 1967, Palestinians worship towards Mecca as they are Arabs like all surrounding nations. Jews worship Jehovah God (not Allah) at Western wall of temple mount. Judah is one of 12 sons of Israel(Jacob) grandson of Abraham, This is family feud. Jesus though born Jewish, preached God’s love for all mankind with saving, healing, restoring grace.

    GOSL should create a fund that sends Tamils to Tamil Nadu, Muslims to Saudi Arabia for 3- 6 months- to see if they want to live there and relinquish their Sri Lankan passport. If Tamils live in filthy Tamil Nadu for a week or Muslims in sharia Saudi – they will come running back to free Sri Lanka – where Buddhist’s tolerance has created a open culture unlike Bangladesh, Pakistan and India.

    Let’s see if Tamils want to shit on the streets of Tamil Nadu where there are no Toilets or Muslims want to get their hands chopped off for drinking a can of Beer or looking at a women ?

      Oh my god Nero, if you can put this into practice there will be many miles long queues to get into Saudi but not as workers, as citizens of that country. If Sinhalese and Tamils too taken, they will surpass Muslims by 75%.

      A very good idea.
      When are you leaving and how much repatriation compensation will make you to relocate from my ancestral land to your ancestral home land?
