Disgraced Navi Pillay, declared agent of West leaves UN Human Rights Council in shame
Shenali D Waduge
Accolades will soon pour in from quarters that are fully satisfied with the role played by Navi Pillay in facilitating their agendas. It showcases how UN has been turned into a peace body flooded by puppets and agents of the West who are being used to legally redraw governance of sovereign nations and through UN legislation, remove the governing power held by sovereign nations. Third World, China, Russia and perhaps now India need to realize the gameplan and resolve to address this ground reality.

Mahinda Rajapakse: the 13th amendment and his tryst with destiny
ByMario Perera, Kadawata
We Asians believe in the cyclic nature of life and events. It would seem that Mahinda R has done his full circle. Yet there does not appear to be anyone who can dethrone him at this juncture and that because of his apparent commitment to a Unitary (and not United) Sri Lanka and all it entails. No one else has those credentials. Mahinda's international leanings for all apparent purposes are totally different from those of the UNP. The fear of betrayal is far less with Mahinda than with all others. This is Mahinda's saving grace. However... -Full Story-

TNA’s GENOCIDE claim: Violates Section 120 of Penal Code. Sri Lankans are hurt by attempts to create ill-feeling amongst communities
Shenali D Waduge
For too long TNA and other remnants of the LTTE propaganda machine have escaped public indignation for irresponsibly using their political privileges to make public statements and attempt to create ill-will and excite hatred amongst communities. The letter signed by 33 members of the Tamil National Alliance representing the Northern and Eastern provincial council to outgoing human rights head Navi Pillai claiming that “the Tamil people strongly believe that they have been, and continue to be subjected to Genocide by Sri Lanka’ is totally unwarranted and legal action should be taken against the TNA in view... -Full Story-

These countries have a total population of 5.4 billion people, some 78% of the world’s population. The MPI assesses poverty at the individual level. If someone is deprived in a third or more of ten weighted indicators, the global index identifies them as ‘MPI poor’, and the extent – or intensity – of their poverty is measured by the number of deprivations they are experiencing... -Full Story-

The Metta of Meals
Buddhistdoor International Lulu Cook
2014-08-15 What would the practice of metta look like if we applied it to eating? The cultivation of an attitude of unconditional friendliness, or metta practice, is foundational to Buddhist teaching. It is often practiced on the cushion, using particular phrases and other techniques to generate a sense of open-hearted caring for oneself and others. It is sometimes taught as an action-oriented practice, used to underpin the busy-ness of our day, such as by wishing well-being to all those we may pass on our commute. This intention toward caring is also uniquely appropriate to... -Full Story-

It does look a bit odd that a UN existing since 1945 having done nothing to put an end to 30 years of LTTE terror, suddenly gears into action under the stewardship of the outgoing UN Human Rights head who is spearheading an ‘accountability’ exercise after the terror group has been vanquished. With the leadership of the terror side eliminated the new ‘both sides to blame’ scenario does raise some eyebrows given the context of hypocrisy in ‘accountability’ that prevails by UN and its officials.

 At the height of the LTTE terrorism in Sri Lanka, a delegation from the Council of Churches in the UK visited home on a peace promoting exercise. Upon their return, Sinhala expatriates in London had an inter-action meeting with the team that visited Sri Lanka, which turned out to be a vociferous confrontation. To counter the myth that dominated at home at the time to the effect that 'the expatriates' involvement or contribution to help their mother country was much to be desired, the meeting that took place in June 1999 was published in a Sri Lankan... -Full Story-

 We think it is appropriate time for Lankaweb viewers to be reminded of Hillary Clinton's views of the LTTE terrorists, now that it has become a little clearer as to the reason for her views.  This is very appropriate specially for those who view Mrs. Clinton as "Poor Hillary, the Victim"  Appreciate if you would share the Youtube video with your readers, with the heading:  "Hillary Clinton on TAMIL TIGERS"

British connection in Tamil Terrorism


Tamil Terrorist flag over British Parliament
Tamil demonstrators calling for an end to the war against Tamil Terrorists

Emboldened by the political support they receive from British politicians, front organizations of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in London have long before started raising funds for terrorist activities in Sri Lanka by extortion not only from the British capital but also from Tamil Nadu over phone messages originating there. The Tamil terrorists are a nasty bunch of tribal misfits who chase and shoot innocent civilians who run for their lives; who creep in the dark to enter adobe huts and chop the sleeping villagers to death; who pluck infants from their mothers arms while they are sucking their nipples for their feed and dash them on rocks to crack their skulls like cracking coconuts at their Hindu Kovils; who perfected the art of suicide bombing and the body pack that all other terrorists around the world are copying. The truth prevails at lastIF NOT FOR COUNTRIES LIKE USA AND UK, SRI LANKA WOULD HAVE ERADICATED TERRORISM AT THE VERY FIRST INCEPTION , STILL USA AND THE EUROPEAN SELF-STYLED PEACEMAKERS ARE GETTING IN THE WAY OF VICTORY.

THE INDIAN WAY- FIRST GANG RAPE OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN, and NOW ASSAULTING THE INNOCENCE- A Sri Lankan Buddhist monk, Pathberiye Gnanaloka Thero, was assaulted by Tamils at the Big Temple in Thanjavur, in Tiruchi, India on Saturday

In Thanjavur, the students and staff, 19 in total, were going around the Sri Brihadeeswarar Temple when a group owing allegiance to the Naam Tamizhar Katchi and the Thamizh Desiya Podhuvudamai Katchi attacked Ven. Gnanaloka Thero, who stood out in the group in his saffron robe.The students were taken to the ASI office near the temple, but the assailants surrounded the office and demanded that the monk be sent out. The incident sent shock waves among devotees and archakas who were witness to the attack.Gnanaloka Thero was asked to change his clothes and sent to Tiruchi along with other students with police escort in vans. As the vehicles entered Tiruchi, two cabs transporting the students were targeted near Ariyamangalam and G Corner, where members of the Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and Naam Tamizhar Katchi attacked the vehicles with sticks and stones, police said. The front windshield of one of the vans and the rear one in the other were damaged. However,several Indian students who accompanied him had received injuries as a result of the attack, in their efforts to protect the priest. the students were escorted safely to the airport.

Great Power Confrontation in the Indian Ocean: The Geo-Politics of the Sri Lankan Civil War
by Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya
The support and positions of various foreign governments in regards to the diabolic fighting between the Tamil Tigers and the Sri Lankan military, which cost the lives of thousands of innocent civilians, says a great deal about the geo-strategic interests of these foreign governments. The position of the governments of India and a group of states that can collectively be called the Periphery, such as the U.S. and Australia, were in support of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Ealam (LTTE) or Tamil Tigers, either overtly or covertly. Many of these governments also provided this support tacitly, so as not to close any future opportunity of co-opting Sri Lanka after the fighting was over. -Full Story- (globalresearch.ca - 25/10/09)

HALLIBURTON SETTLES ASBESTOS CLAIMS FOR $4 BILLION

According to the National Cancer Institute website, Asbestos is the name given to a group of minerals that occur naturally in the environment as bundles of fibers and can be separated into thin, durable threads. These fibers are resistant to heat, fire, and chemicals and do not conduct electricity. For these reasons, asbestos has been widely used in many industries." Mesothelioma is a cancer of the lining of the lung caused by exposure to asbestos. For more information about asbestos and mesothelioma, visit Mesothelioma Web.

THE ANCESTRY OF RAVANA A close study of the Ramayana, particularly the last book or Uttara Kanda, reveals that Ravana, the enemy of Lord Rama, was not a Dravidian, as many people have thought, but related to the Sri Lanka, who are considered to be Aryans-that Ravana was a migrant to Sri Lanka from the Vedic family of the Yadus, perhaps deriving originally from the city of Mathura south of Delhi. The first wave of migrants to Sri Lanka from the north was from Gujarat and of the Yadu family, which dominated the southwest of India and from the region of Gujarat had access to the sea on which they travelled far in their trading and colonizing ventures. The Ramayana tells the Ravana, the king of Sri Lanka, had close connections with region of the Yadus, which included Gujarat, parts of Maharashtra and Rajasthan up to Mathura south of Delhi.
