Under Siege: Sri Lanka In Geneva, March 2014

Political correctness or the fear of it makes Sri Lankan commentators on the draft resolution on Sri Lanka as well as the calls for an international inquiry at the 25th session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva blame the Government, the West (‘imperialism’) or the Tamil Diaspora. This uni-dimensional analysis fails to regard the thing holistically, and neither traces the chain of causation nor unearths the root of the matter.

While it is the myopic and misplaced post-war policies, national and external,  and the sheer crassness of the discourse, of the incumbent administration that has left us wide open to an intrusive resolution for an international inquiry, that alone is not an accurate answer to the question that many, if not most Sri Lankans are grappling with today. That question is ‘why Sri Lanka?’ Why is Sri Lanka under far greater scrutiny than many other states, for far less heinous sins? Why is the ‘international community’ that did not get on the LTTE’s case with the same degree of sustained purpose during decades of daily terrorism, targeting Sri Lanka?

The answer is the geostrategic weight and comparative geostrategic advantage of the Tamil community in the world system, enhanced, indeed multiplied by the backwardness of the Sri Lankan state.  In the global matrix, the Sri Lankan state is backward in every sense, while the pan-Tamil secessionist vanguard is more advanced.

The Sri Lankan state — and the Sinhalese— are no longer internationally competitive, while the Tamils are increasingly so. To spell it out, because of the specific character of the Diaspora, the Tamils punch above their weight in the world community while the Sri Lankan state and the Sinhalese punch far below their own earlier weight because of the anachronistic character of the official discourse and the deterioration of the quality of human resources of the Sri Lankan state, stemming from decades of substandard social policies.

This diagnosis is confirmed in a new and indispensable book on Sri Lanka’s war by Prof Paul Moorcraft, Director of the Centre for Foreign Policy Analysis, London, and more pertinently a former senior instructor at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, and the UK Joint Services Command and Staff College. An internet search shows that he worked in Corporate Communications in the Ministry of Defence in Whitehall and is a crisis management consultant to Shell, British Gas, 3M, and Standard Bank.  He also worked for Time magazine and the BBC as a freelance producer/war correspondent. He has worked in 30 war zones in Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the Balkans, often with irregular forces. Most recently he has been working in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine/Israel and Sudan. Prof Moorcraft writes that:

“In some countries the Tamil community stood next to the Jewish Diaspora if not in wealth, perhaps in organization; it was less assimilated too. It was much smarter at playing on tender hearts in the host community while funding an insurgency back home. It outdid the Kurdish, Irish, Kashmiri and even Palestinian diaspora in this regard…

The Tigers’ International Secretariat established a worldwide system of weapons procurement, financial, and political support and media outlets. Much of the network survived intact after the defeat of the insurgency in Sri Lanka itself… After the LTTE was banned in the US and the EU, various front organizations were set up in fifty four locations in thirty two countries. The LTTE contained some brilliant propagandists who established a range of TV and radio stations, websites and printed media. The front organizations worked assiduously on foreign politicians as well as the approximately one million Tamil exiles, notably in Europe and North America. …Hundreds of Tamil schools were set up in the Diaspora regions (350 in Europe alone) to inculcate third generation children in the cause. Often these children were mobilized on behalf of pro-LTTE protests…

…around ten percent of Tamil exiles were active radicals. They were often successful business people and highly capable of organizing vote banks in regions and cities where their numerical concentration could sway the local votes and thus secure a ready ear from politicians. In Britain the LTTE (under a political and legal guise) formed dedicated organizations to liase with both the Labour and Conservative parties…” (Pp.103-105, ‘The Total Destruction of the Tamil Tigers’, Pen & Sword, UK, 2012)

Bad as this picture is, it leaves out the enormous weight of yet another factor: Tamil Nadu, with its 70 million strong population. Today Tamil Nadu is bidding to play the same role in Delhi’s policy towards Sri Lanka that a near hysterical Cuban community in the state of Florida used to play for decades in Washington’s policy towards Cuba.

Thus Sri Lanka is in a far worse situation internationally than almost all states, especially democratic ones, which have won a war against a ruthless non-state actor because the community that sustained that non-state actor through all its fascistic depredations is far more significant than the communities which sustained just as ruthless or even far less ruthless non-state actors in other conflict situations.

Faced with a foe of such international capacity, the Sri Lankan state had —and still has— one of three ways to go.

1. It could have increased its dependence on, compliance with and capitulation to the West. This is the neo-Kotelawalan ‘Bandung Booruwa’ line of the UNP of Ranil Wickremesinghe (and the ex-SLFP Mangala Samaraweera).

2. It could have relied almost exclusively on strengthening its ‘hard power’ grip on the island, most especially its North and East — which is what the Rajapaksa regime sought to do, driven by its Sinhala hard-line faction and/or dominant impulses.

3. It could have judiciously reinforced its leadership of the island (the DS Senanayaka strategy) while expanding its space and increasing its competitiveness globally. With variations, this is the line of SWRD and Sirima Bandaranaike, Ranasinghe Premadasa and Lakshman Kadirgamar. Somawansa Amarasinghe and Tilvin Silva can attest, as can Nirupam Sen and I, from long conversations with an alienated and anxious Lakshman Kadirgamar, that this was not the line of Chandrika Kumaratunga in the last (PTOMS) years of her presidency.

It is the third perspective listed here that was also the policy practice that enabled Sri Lanka to prevail decisively in Geneva in May 2009 while Westminster was blockaded by thousands of Tamil demonstrators and the traffic in Geneva was snarled up by tens of thousands of Tiger flag waving demonstrators blockading the Palais de Nations (one of whom immolated himself in full public view).

The multiple yet interconnected strategic blunders of the present administration were:

a. To forget the political potential of the international reserve army of Tamil secessionism ( embedded in Tamil Nadu and the Tamil Diaspora)

b. To believe that it could be countered without either the political empowerment of the government’s own Tamil allies or a political rapprochement with the admittedly inconsistent and volatile moderates of the TNA.

c. To believe that the global geostrategic weight of the offshore Tamil community could be countervailed without maintaining the wartime alliance with Delhi and indeed while reneging on the pledges made to India during the war and just after it.

The Tamils forgot both the geostrategic weight of the Sinhalese on the island and the existential reality that they had nowhere to retreat, and took them on frontally in war. The Sinhalese forgot the geostrategic weight of the Tamils off the island and sought to reorder the political space of post war Sri Lanka in manner that went beyond a natural and legitimate reinstatement of Sinhala leadership but sought to impose Sinhala-Buddhist domination outside their natural demographic and cultural zone.

In Geneva this month, to quote Malcolm X, “the chickens are coming home to roost”. That however, is neither a cause for grim satisfaction at a comeuppance nor is it the end of the story. The West is on the verge of getting it wrong as it did during the entire period of the Norwegian negotiations and more especially the Ceasefire Agreement (CFA)— just as India did in an earlier avatar. It is one thing to seek to restore equilibrium by containment of the Sinhala triumphalism of the Sri Lankan regime and state. This would require an even-handed approach. It is quite another to shift from containment of Sinhala excess to humiliating roll-back and a manifest tilt towards the Tamils, triggering collective memories of colonial bias and reinforcing older ones of South Indian expansionism.

Just as the island’s South —and the South driven or Southern centric State—resisted and reversed the humiliating retreat of the CFA years, the overwhelming majority will simply not countenance over-lordship by the West, Tamil Nadu, and the Tamil Diaspora lobbies even in the form of the Office of the High Commissioner of Human Rights.

The latest Channel 4 video with its sickeningly bestial necrophilic sexual abuse, seems authentic to me— but it comes from the same part of the moral Inferno as  the video of US soldiers unzipping themselves and peeing on dead bodies of Taliban terrorists. These crimes must be exposed and punished someday, as they have been from Brazil to Bangladesh— by the society itself at a historical time of its choosing.

Any kind of international inquiry must be regarded as non–negotiable by any Sri Lankan administration. However, the technical support of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights may be sought for a robust, credible national process.

If the UNHRC resolution contains the component of an intrusive external inquiry, the mood of the Sinhala majority, with or without the Rajapaksas, will be ‘the resolution be damned!’ The mood shift will be conducive to more radical shades of nationalism. The results of the upcoming provincial council elections will be interesting in this regard, not least as the respective campaigns of the government and the main Opposition are being led from the front, by Mahinda Rajapaksa and Ranil Wickremesinghe respectively.

An intrusive UNHRC resolution will see the island state evolve into a hedgehog, however short-lived that avatar may be. Since the TNA and NPC leaders have eschewed the smart option of playing good cop to the Diaspora and Tamil Nadu’s bad cop, openly calling for an international investigation and thereby painting themselves as anti-national and pro-Western (as in the days of the colonial compact), the psycho-political space for dialogue and reconciliation will narrow rather than widen after the passage of an intrusive resolution. This atmosphere and setting will be particularly inhospitable for any attempt at political reconciliation by an incoming administration in Delhi and/or a concerned South Africa.

In Geneva today, Sri Lanka must be realistic above all else. Together with its friends, it must negotiate flexibly, creatively and sincerely, making all compromises necessary to remove any reference to an international or external inquiry by any agency whatsoever. If however, the Resolution is endorsed while it contains such an aggressively intrusive component, there can be no question of compliance or cooperation, certainly with that aspect, whatever the cost. Sri Lanka will just have to take the hit, or, as Elmore Leonard wrote (introducing his hero Marshal Raylan Givens, the protagonist of the TV series ‘Justified’), we’ll just have to “ride the rap; that’s all anyone has to do”.

In 2009, Justice CG Weeramantry rightly warned that a victorious Sri Lankan state must avoid the bad example of the big powers at Versailles who imposed a victor’s peace on a defeated Germany only to witness the rise of Nazism. The Sri Lankan regime ignored his advice and now we have the resurgence of the Tamil secessionist project and the prospect of the encirclement of Sri Lanka. Today, if it capitulates to the international human rights NGOs, the Tamil nationalists, the West will make yet another blunder in its long line of blunders in Asia. A Treaty of Versailles in respect of the defeated was horrific in its results, but to seek to impose a Treaty of Versailles on a victorious side— or to hold a Nuremburg Lite on the equivalent of the victorious Allies rather than the defeated Nazis— would be catastrophic in its consequence. Since the JVP is no longer auditioning for the role of national liberation or resistance movement, the agency of resistance could be the very target of the call for an international inquiry. This time the Southern/Sinhala backlash could shift the centre of gravity to a rather more praetorian patriotism. Unsustainable though it will be as a project, it may serve as a holding action and transition.

It will also be but a symptom of a far more permanent reality which the West and the Tamil nationalists often ignore: the two thirds of a strategically significant island are inhabited by an ethnic community that constitutes two thirds of its populace.

    “Why is Sri Lanka under far greater scrutiny than many other states, for far less heinous sins? Why is the ‘international community’ that did not get on the LTTE’s case with the same degree of sustained purpose during decades of daily terrorism, targeting Sri Lanka?”,

    asks the wise man soaked in Mahavamsa chinthanaya.

    The answer is simple, genocide of Tamils, stupid.

    You can’t hide it when several powerful eyes were looking and still looking from the sky, if not from the heavens, when this was going on.

    Mahinda and Dayan think by excluding the media, the UN and the ICRC they keep it secret.

    Even the Sinhala soldiers are coming with video clips of disgusting evidence of sexual abuse of dead Tamil female fighters.

    Don’t think your half-baked knowledge of social science can wish away the genocide of Tamils.

    Independent Tamil Eelam is the solution.

      Dayan knows that the state has financial power to hire heinous firms to do dirty tricks though its citizens may be starving:

      US senators had exactly the same stuff in their resolution as the PR firms hired by Sri Lanka:

        We will have to spend money for international PR whatever the cost if we expect justice for us.

        Tamil separatists have shifted their strategy from violence to money, we must adjust our game plan now.

        Unfortunately the state is not in a position to spend billions of rupees like the separatists because it can have accountability issues at home.

        MR must use some amount from the billions he earned to counter the dollars of tamil separatists and NGOs. He owes the country that much.

          Hi Liberal One,

          With regard to my earlier conversation with you in the last two days, I hope you took note of Dayan’s validation on Tamils vs. Sinhalese in his statement that “The Sri Lankan state — and the Sinhalese— are no longer internationally competitive, while the Tamils are increasingly so” — except of course in offering maid services around the globe!.

          As for your own comment above “MR must use some amount from the billions he earned to counter the dollars of Tamil separatists and NGOs. He owes the country that much” – good luck if you can pry out even a pitiful Rupial from the clan fists, most of which in any case have taken flight for buying palaces in various foreign lands such as the U.S. and Australia, and whatever left have been donated to racing-car manufactures and such. Perhaps you can now demystify Silva who was confused and whining why the Sinhalese remain poverty-stricken relative to Tamils.

          Incidentally, I note that you became tongue-tied on the other thread. I am guessing you truly got educated, but pride and ego come in the way of any sensible courageous concession!

            Your chauvinist notion that Tamils are superior in intelligence and all other Sri Lankans are inferior and that the economic misfortunes of this country are due to special colonial time privileges of Tamils been reversed is just a theory. A theory that could be either true or false. Personally to me looking at the pathetic state of affairs in South India where there are no Sinhalese to discriminate the Tamils, this theory doesn’t hold much ground.

                lol I mean the economic status. I can’t spoon feed illiterate racists like you. Do a research on per capita income, child mortality rates, life expectancy, etc if you have the mental capacity. While doing it keep in mind that Sri Lanka had to face a war for 30 years unlike Tamil Nadu which was politically stable at all times.

                and your continued obsessions with Sri Lanka is such a satisfaction. We don’t even think for a moment about spending time in a Tamil Nadu news portal. It just doesn’t interest us.

                  The Sri Lankan proclivity to provide no more than maid service indeed was a reference to “economic status” –

                  While you guys thrive on your women-folks’ earnings back-washing all over the globe, and now prepare to establish global broom-brigade, Tamil Nadu retained its wisdom of continued strengthening of its education fundamentals – and have established itself as a prime sought-after site for IT-sourcing all around that same globe!

                  Does that give you a clue as to who is “illiterate”? Only a moron could miss that!

              Yo Liberal One

              All you know is to beat-around the bush with facts and figures pulled out of various regime-orifices. Try to wriggle out of the orifices to see some daylight.

              I challenged you with very specific six statements that establishes the historic systematic failure of the country following your imbecilic swabasha policy in the 50’s, now seemingly replaced by an even worse subservient Korean/Chinese language adoption for street-sweeper jobs, the only avenue left for your kids, grand kids and great-grand kids.

              Now you have to resort to begging MR to fund more Pottingers, while Silva’s of the blessed land continue to starve even for manjokka.

              Good luck getting even a cent out of that clan – it is your spouse’s foreign earnings that will end up in US/UK PR firms – not the Medamulana dowry that you guys lavishly and voluntarily donated and keep donating (seen the MihinLanka profit & loss statement lately?!).

              You were referring to the billions in the hands of the clan, while Silva is whining about the penny-lessness of the Sinhala community. Did you ever think of how the billions (actually trillions in rupee terms!) came into the clan hands within in the last four years – obviously not by pumping gas in California – right?

              Silva noted that Tamils have more money – and Wigna made that observation as well? Did that at least make you wonder who is looking after whom – is the regime looking after even its (own non-blood relative) Sinhala community, at least half as much as the Diaspora is looking after their kith and kin?

              Are you even grown-up enough to understand these issue – or man-enough to defend your rights without getting yourself buried in pointless school-boyish tactics just for the thrill of it?!

              Also, you made some categorical statement about Tamil Nadu per cap – I asked you if you could substantiate your statement? Why the dumb-found non-response? Gross-inadequacy-of-Cojones syndrome? See if you can beg for some of that too!

                @Robert
                What is this nonsense with silvas and maids? How about some facts? Could you still not find out the per capita income of Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka?

          They hire foreign companies to get their speeches complete… get their PR work done. Get the work against Oppoostion done… etc.

              Oh you Liberal One- what a pathetic, misguided ignoramus you show out to be.

              You are now suggesting the country should pay to external PR firms.

              First of all, can you tell me what that PR effort is expected to achieve for the country – aside from protecting criminals, if indeed there were crimes committed. Aside from that, what good can a PR effort bring to the well-being of the country? If all you want is to avoid intrusion of internationals into the country’s governance, stay on track with what is the norm in “good governance”!

              We all now know of the names of specific PR firms the State already employed and paid through the nose out of your spouse’s foreign earnings. Can you name a firm or firms that the Diaspora employed and paid even half of that to make their case and to influence international opinion? The Diaspora did all the PR themselves, and that they did on the side while working full time elsewhere to make a living. Your regime has full-time diplomats and others employed just to do that PR – and you yourself don’t have confidence in their ability?! I don’t for sure, but it is revealing that you youself don’t either.

              Your regime had an ample complement of PhD’s in English, PhD’s in political science, and PhD’s in legal studies plus at least one 99th percentile legal mind to draw from, but you feel the regime has to pay a foreign PR firm to communicate and to write speeches for the President? Did you know that a speech that Pottinger firm wrote for MR was actually written by a guy who was a mere high-school graduate employee of that firm – and the reimbursement for that alone exceeded the average year’s salary a Minister in Sri Lanka. Wow! — just for one speech!

              I wonder what kept Dayan the Political Science PhD and Rajiva the English PhD too busy to write that speech? Perhaps they were far too busy practicing to write to CT!

              Incidentally – did you get to see that famous pamphlet that was distributed at the Opening of the Mattala Airport – wasn’t that a hoot? Do you think that guy who drafted that is still employed? Or, for that matter, is he/she still living?

              Now, after all these eye-openers, do you understand the validity of the claim that the “country lost a huge capacity when it decided to oust the Tamils by its stupid swabasha policy”. Is that still too difficult for you to comprehend my “intelligent & literate” boy?

              Ask the idiots to spend their savings if they are not intelligent enough to use the brains of lanken professionals to stand against Diasphora reactions …

              In that way, they can help two groups

              a) Saving lanken state assets means – saving more for the poorest of the poor – that struggle for their 3 meals today than anytime in the past

              b) Using lanken professionals in international arena to stand against them means – competence… LATTER should be the choice for a leader who has brains.

      So long Rajapakshe administration will rule the nation – nothing like peace and harmony will be built, instead, even other minority folks like muslims will feel that they are next target of the majority sinhala folks.
      Instead of finding proper solutions for the identified problems, trying to deny them publicly saying that current regime is doing the best towards peace is just blatant lies.
      Having watched the latest debate on the web,
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRB3aS75ZLY
      on current religious compulsions that are clearly being seen in the island today, the manner that the govt responds to them – is not at all accepted. There are true anxities becoming strong among the muslim community in the country.

        I guess to naive fools like you bombs going off in buses must have been peace and harmony. Armed thugs calling election boycotts must have been peace and harmony.

        Sri Lanka is one of the few countries that allows Muslims to practice some form of Muslim law despite Muslims been a minority. Can you expect something like that from a Muslim country or better yet from a so called perfect democracy like USA? Learn to appreciate the good while bitching about the issues 24/7.

He as minister of justice, at least has reacted. Until now he should have gone through all the torments of pressure exercised by murderou current administration.

      The so called “divide-and-rule policy of the British” did not favor any Tamils. It only favored the Sinhalese who were collaborating with the British (known as Kalu Suddo). You do not need any education and research capability to understand the behaviors and cultural differences of two different races in a country. Just by living with both of them for a certain amount of period (few years) and some intelligence/common sense is more than enough. For example, it did not take mush time for the Colonial rulers to identify the Sinhalese as foolish and lazy people only good at eating Kavum. They did not say the same to Tamils or Muslims because the Tamils were clever, ready to learn, industrious, honest and hardworking (the Tamil work ethics – work is worship). The Muslims were also honest and very good at business. On the other hand, the Sinhala race was very lazy, violent, racist, hateful, jealous and mean spirited. This is the reason why, when it came to white color jobs in the Ceylon Civil Service the colonials gave preference to Ceylon Tamils of North and East. The Tamils were holding top positions in the government service whereas the Sinhalese were working as peons and drivers. Like what Soulbury says, the English were jealous of the Scots, the lazy Sinhalese were jealous of the hardworking Tamils and Muslims. In 1948, the British handed over the entire country to the Sinhalese with the second highest GNP per capita in Asia and where are we today?

      You (Sinhalese) attacked the unarmed non-violent Tamil protesters from the days of independence, you Sinhalese looted us, killed our people, broke our limbs, and burnt our houses and properties to the ground, overnight we were reduced to the state of beggars. You drove us from our homeland and we became refugees begging for alms, we lived on the handouts given by foreign governments, there was no sense of shame left in us. But you could not do one thing. That was to remove our indomitable spirits and our work ethics (work is worship). Within a matter of thirty years we have become one of the most powerful Diaspora in the world. The Tamils have become experts in everything good as well as bad, jack of all trades. The Tamil Diaspora will do anything and everything in the West to earn money and establish themselves. Today there are more than a million Sri Lankan Tamils (Diaspora) around the Western World from North America to Australia/New Zealand doing extremely well. All our children are attending the top class universities in the World. You made us beggars and refugees but it only took us a very short time to bounce back and become millionaires in our host land.

      Today, with our money and vote bank we are able to influence and lobby the western politics/politicians. We have only become second to the Jews, who were driven out by that monster Hitler. We have become rich and strong, just like the rich Jews controlling the American politics the rich Tamil (Diaspora) are now capable of financing election campaigns in the West. Within the next few decades, the World Tamils will be as powerful as the Jews or even overtake them in manipulating and controlling not only the Western leaders/politics but also the Indian and Sri Lankan politics.

      We and our children have become millionaires in our host countries. Our children have achieved what they could have never achieved in Sri Lanka. Most of them are top most professionals in their chosen field, whether it is medicine, science, engineering, IT technology or even space travel. We have become an important partner in the development and the progress of our host countries. How did we achieve this status from being beggars thrown out as refugees from our homeland? To transform ourselves from Tamil refugees into such a powerful block, into top businessmen and professionals? Our determination to achieve freedom for our homeland.

      When the Jews were thrown out from their land and humiliated and killed in tens of thousands, they migrated to the West as refugees leaving only a very few (less than 10% of the population back). Today they are not only one of the richest nations all over the world but they are also manipulating and controlling the Western politics and the World politics. The World Tamil Diaspora (created by the Tamil think tank Dr. Anton Balasingham taking the Jews as the best example) is following exactly what the Jews did. They are determined to achieve their goal. This is not an internal domestic SL issue anymore. We have globalized/internationalized the issue where Uncle Sam and the Western powers are influenced by the Tamil Diaspora to interfere. Right from independence when we the Tamil countrymen of Sri Lanka asked you peacefully to let us live in peace and dignity, without the interference of Sinhala Buddhist hegemony, in our traditional habitat to protect our Tamil identity and culture, your inherent Sinhala racism didn’t allow to accommodate the Tamil’s reasonable request, you attacked the unarmed non-violent Tamil protesters. At the end our youth had no choice but to take up arms. If the Sinhalese think that the Tamil freedom struggle ended at Nandikaddal, they are worse than the worst fools in this world. Just like the Palestine-Jew conflict continues with the Western World supporting the Jews, the Sinhala-Tamil conflict will also continue with the World supporting the Tamils (it already began) until they achieve freedom. To do so, the World Tamils are also well organized and established and progressing well to take the struggle to the next level by lobbying/influencing the political leaders of the Western world. Today, unfortunately you have to deal with Uncle Sam and the powerful west in order to solve this once internal issue.

        Unfortunately Dayan’s biased brain can see only West, North and East; Not the Middle
        As far the British people were concerned, in Sri Lanka, there was nothing available as something that is being called by the modern Economic term as “Labor”. It is not just for Civil Service, even for the menial plantation works, the white entrepreneurs put a laborious process to bring Tamil labor from other parts of the world. The people living in those areas could not be included in the term “Labor”. Now everybody knows what has happened to the world’s most famous, super quality, Ceylon tea after being taken over by new “DJs the great”, who without knowing the real substance, persistently, violently forcefully misguide others with their free consultancy.
        “Sinhala Only Act was brought to get “Modaya” votes. Not to Educate Sinhala mass. If the leaders of Sri Lanka had suspicion of that Tamils were given chance to study English and up lift them to world class “Labor”, they might have sought that too. But, DS, SWRD, JR clearly wanted to keep the “Modaya” group ignorant so that they can keep reaping the Mahanama cultivation votes. Colvin’s constitution, which was brought in with the intention of dismantle Soulbury’s constitution portrayed the real capacity of this “Modaya” vote seekers. Colvin and Srimavo are the reason now DJ’s masters have made them as Royals of the Land, by the virtue of the constitution.
        JR’s and SWRD’s did not need the “Emergency 1958” to remove the white bias. The Tamils who had opened the small “Kadais” all over the South did not know a word of English to open those “Kadais”. They were not favored by British. Nobody even forced them to study Sinhalese. They studied Sinhalese and got along well with the villagers they were having the “Kadais”
        After leaving the country for 55 years, in this 2004 Economist’s article, the new generation of whites are finding themselves the new reason to favor the Tamils, not just in Sri Lanka, but even in England. http://www.economist.com/node/3261047

      People´s affinity to JVP grows exponentially.

      It is all because of the newly appointed leader of the party. I hail his priciplese, please read it below:

      ———–

      ‘President called me four times; I didn’t pick up’-Says JVP Leader

      0 March 12, 2014 3:00 am

      By Niranjala Ariyanwansha

      Leader of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), Anura Kumara Dissanayake, said that while he had received four calls from the President on 3 February, presumably to congratulate him on being appointed as the Party Leader the previous day (2 February), he had declined to answer any of them.

      He opined that the President’s motive behind the congratulatory calls was not to actually congratulate him but to do so and get media publicity for it.

      “I knew when he called four times that this was a publicity stunt. He wants to score points by deceit and to then publish them in the following day’s newspapers,” he said.

      He went on to say: “On my birthday in 2013, he called and wished me, and I thought only the two of us knew about our conversation, only to find out differently from that week’s Sunday newspapers. It is he who talks to the press.”

    Dear DJ,

    First a correction on two facts –
    1. The Treaty of Versailles was not really harsh. It was a myth propagated by Hitler to support his fascist agenda. See http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-25776836.

    2. You refer to “collective memories of colonial bias”. As far as I know the term “collective memory” is used to describe the existence of fact not myths. Colonial bias towards the Tamils is in the same category as the idea that the Sinhalese are the descendents of a lion.

    Second, your thesis oversimplifies the issue. If the political power of the diaspora was so powerful they should have been able to prevent the banning of the LTTE in North America, Europe and India. They should have been able to prevent intelligence sharing that led to the destruction of the LTTE’s floating armory. They should have been able to prevent the freezing of LTTE funds.

    The question of why Sri Lanka should be looked at more holistically instead of putting forward theses that merely contribute towards the polarisation.

    I think the following contribute to the targeting of Sri Lanka:
    (a) Sri Lanka breaching the understanding upon which the rest of the world desisted from interfering more directly during the final phase of the war.
    (b) The genuine fear that the “Sri Lankan model” for combating resistance would become attractive for despotic states confronted with resistance.
    (c) The increasing amount of evidence that shows the systemic nature of the war crimes committed. It is not only the latest video but even the previous ones are very clear that large scale abuses took place and that no steps are being taken about them.
    (d) the continuing move towards a dictatorship in Sri Lanka.
    (e) Sri Lanka’s strategic alliance with China
    (f) The undiplomatic and aggressive IR strategy adopted by Sri Lanka.
    (g) the Diaspora pressure.

    To look at only one of these is too simplistic.

        2. ”strategically significant island” has been successful in shutting up the international community for 65yrs and will likely go on for longer because ”sovereignty” is not challenged by the international community enough in this globalised world:

    Sinhala state has all along been a hedgehog, or even worse as a man eating lion, as far as Tamils are concerned since 1948.

    Sinhala hedgehogs caused the flight of 1 million Tamils, and now you complain they are powerful, and your tentacles can’t reach them!

    Why is that the GOSL looks they are not interested in your analyses ? You were part of them, even today ? As many would see it impartially if the President could build up a small cabinet of internationally renowned lanken professionals, we could have approached the IC making them clear about the ground reality of lanken problem.

    And you to make these analyses publicly not being close them gives any reader the feeling that they have no interests your views.

    I wish I could read constructive comments on to this.

    Today, I happened to read president saying “NO DANCING TO ANYONE’S TUNE – PRESIDENT”. Is this the stand of srilanka as a country belong to IC and while chairing CW countries currently ?

    Dayan,
    In effect are you recommending that the government accepts and addresses the concerns expressed in the draft resolution while accepting OHRC expertise in conducting an internal inquiry on alleged war crimes by both protagonists, to avoid an international inquiry?

    Why the reference to the 1/3rd, 2/3rd equation, which is the reason, why we are, where we are?

    Are you also acknowledging that the post war political shenanigans of this government in the north and east have given a second life and strengthened the Diaspora Tamil activists?

    Will you also acknowledge that the gung-ho attitude of the government and the absolute disrespect it has shown for norms of democratic governance, has placed it in the back foot, in the on-coming PC elections?

    Will the Geneva bogey/ Goni Billa, favour the government in the on-coming PC elections considering the simmering groundswell of public opinion opinion against the government, on account of the cost of living and its blatant highhandedness!

    Dayan is once again wrong. He concludes in this article that its only the Tamils who are living abroad are pushing for a motion against Sri Lanka. Well he is wrong. Its not only the Tamils its also Sinhalese and Muslims who are living in Sri Lanka and abroad are pushing for the resolution. He need not look far, if he reads all the columns in this site he will notice that there are more Sinhalese than Tamils who pen their articles against the Govt of Sri Lanka.

    Only reason why Dayan is firm on saying no to international inquiry is because he opposed it when he was at UN as a paid servant of the Govt of Sri Lanka. But if we read between the lines he is clear that an international involvement is necessary. He is saying the same thing that Chief Minister Justice Wigneswaran and Sampathan said last week. Dayan is agreeing to an international (inquiry) participation by technical support, its like him or his comments, a process that appears to be something else in a “sheep’s clothing”.

    Dayan,

    Once again you have showed your biased analyses with inaccurate and partial facts. First of all, don’t think that it is about a war between LTTE and Rajapakse family.

    You don’t look at the current international actions are based on uni dimensional analysis. It is based on time series multi-factorial analysis of the events that happened in this island since it transformed from British Ceylon to Sinhala Sri Lanka. Some of the factors include:
    1. Planned political activities of changing the demography of Sri Lanka, particularly in the North East.
    2. Continued state sponsored violence against Tamils without any justice to marginalise their economy and
    3. Destruction of cultural identities.
    4. Breakdown of law and order and justice system.
    5. Creation of 100% Sinhala only security structure

    Terrorism started by Sinhalese, did not start with LTTE. There were valid reasons for the birth of LTTE. In fact, India (International) that sponsored armed struggle to counter Sinhalese terrorism. However, there were disagreements developed between LTTE and India and India turned against LTTE. The outcome in 2009 which is silencing the LTTE guns was an international effort (Inia,West) not the sole effort of Sinhalese who are with a terrorist Rajapakse regime. You may remember that international community broke a peace deal between LTTE and Government of Sri Lanka when LTTE was almost in a position of defeating Sinhala army. They expected that Sinhalese will commit themselves for what they agreed on the peace agreement and give up the policies and actions against marginalizing Tamils.

    Truth is International community punished the terror side of LTTE but they have to stop the terror side of Sinhalese. Though they were against to the terror side LTTE, but they are on the side of LTTE on their demand of self determination of Tamils and not in support of Sinhalese terrorism. Truth is Sinhalese killed innocent Tamils International community has a duty to make sure that it is a terrorist act and justice should be done.

There are no more suicide bombers to kill our leaders too.

    “That question is ‘why Sri Lanka?’ Why is Sri Lanka under far greater scrutiny than many other states, for far less heinous sins? Why is the ‘international community’ that did not get on the LTTE’s case with the same degree of sustained purpose during decades of daily terrorism, targeting Sri Lanka?”

    DJ, after many decades analyzing root cause, now wants to prosecute LTTE. King’s government is far far ahead of DJ. They wants to prosecute IPKF, instead LTTE. Realy a worthy talk.

    After all blaming LTTE was only a technique used by the Royal Government and after international society said the war crime will include LTTE too they abandon it. So, GLP going to look at this sentences (the free advice) and laugh at DJ, thinking “that much dump that fellow is? Even if he is not going to be invited to March 29, 2014 Grand fireworks for me having defeated Cameron, Harper, Obama all on the issue of ‘International Independent Inquiry’, Can he just stand up on the street and watch it?

    “It could have judiciously reinforced its leadership of the island while expanding its space and increasing its competitiveness globally.”
    Once again your cynicism pulls you onto the drain along with the “competitive Tamils” whose “competence” lies in their having effectively built a fascist movement, which you seek to make the Sinhala buddhists “competitive” enough to effectively emulate and outdo and in the process bring us to the same fate that has befallen these “competitive” Tamils whose “competitiveness” you wish to see us cultivate.. You Dayan are the master-mind behind the “deep state” in Sri Lanka carefully herding the political process like a faithful sheepdog and determinedly pushing it singlehanded along the path to the fathering of a global resurgence of fascism, its legitimization and institutionalization as the ideology of statecraft in a critical future where attention may have to be divided among several other critical global developments.

    Whether this is the logical outcome of your cunning opportunism or that of a conscious commitment to the legitimization of Sinhala Buddhist Nationalism or a deeply personal commitment to the resurgence of fascism in whatever possible guise is something that will shortly be exposed but whatever the wellspring of your hitherto remarkably successful endeavor, you stand at the moment at the head of those in the global league that espouses, defends and advances fascism.

    Well, it is the Tamil society, as part of the SL citizenry, that is asking that such crimes be punished now. Sinhalese are not the only ‘society’ for you to have that luxury of waiting for ‘someday.’

    There has been a history of SL army being “bestial” from the mid-1970’s. It happened even during the JVP years in the late 1980’s. That the Sinhalese society was willing to let such actions by the state go unpunished is no reason why others should tolerate it.

His late father, the great man, honorable Mr Mervyn De Silva will will turn in his grave for his rascal son’s awful and senseless writings. Thank god he was gone with good memories that he fought for justice and equal rights for all the sidelined and neglected, harassed minority communities. This DJ is just like Dr. Brian Senewiratne’s racist son who also writes venom and racism. Thank god DJ is not our President. He would have done worse things to Tamils and others much more than Rajapakse and his thug brothers, Chamal brother is not at all interfering, advising or opening his mouth against his rowdy brothers.
    I didn’t realize that Dayan is such a nasty, racist, unholy, dishonest, inhuman, thing living in our country. What is the use of his big education if this guy doesn’t have an iota of compassion, care for lives, and justice.
    Raping of Tamil women, even tiger fighters are justified by him ? He is only critical of Tiger crimes which are nothing compared to his terrorist regime. The continued state terrorism since 1948 created tigers in 1983. There were no state sponsored racial pogroms and riots after Tigers until they were eliminated with the help from all the countries. For 30 years or so they couldn`t win the freedom fighters. With all the lies and propaganda and dirty Bush and world terrorism ruse Tigers were eliminated. Now the US, UK and EU countries are regretting for helping and cooperation they gave to SL. Sri Lanka should learn a lesson or face the consequences. The world Tamils won`t sleep until real normalcy is restored, culprits are punished, real peace returned. Do not dream of anything else DJ the dumb.
    I had some respect for you and it`s all gone with your latest garbage. Just give up writing man for god`s sake. We are fed up to the max. Whom are you trying to please…MR ..he wont understand a thing you write MR DJ. Be a man, a real human. Stop writing racial rubbish. Do not trust Mahinda and gangs. Trust Tamils and Muslims. They are not racists, they are honest and very religious . They work hard for the prosperity of Lanka. Thank you !

      My dear Bruz,

      Did NOT you know that Dr Brian Seneviratne´s son was suffering from a mental problems ? That could be chronical.. knowing this I would not attack anyone of that state..

      So please, it is fair and advisable not to ABOUT THE PERSON on this forum in this way. That was the reason for me to be away from my comments to his few months ago.

      Else, I agree with you what you hav ebeen saying about DJ.
      Dj has completely lost his credibility ot this day. DJ is not a good word in Germany…. I mean not serious acronym, but that goes with here with the person DJ to this day.
      However, I would not say that all what Dayan Jayathilaka has been addding is wrong. Like build up a small cabinet of a lanken professionals inorder to better lead UNHRC and HR related issues.
      That the incumbent has totally failed. How can we expect a man whose abilities are fully focused on human anhiliation to make understand the need of buidling such committees ? Pigs might fly – if anyone would think that MR would ever become that near.
