You reported that “ƒ”¹…”Migrant ship belongs to Tamil Tigers: experts’, and “ƒ”¹…”Intercepted last week,Ocean Lady used to smuggle arms from N.Korea.’

Defending these 76 illegal Tamil migrants who by-passed their homeland, Tamil Nadu in South India where 62 million of their people live, and who paid $45,000 for each person to be smuggled into Canada, Sue Nathan of the Canadian Tamil Congress during the media conference outside the Citizenship and Immigration Canada offices in Vancouver said, “These men have fled murder and abduction, which is very rampant in Sri Lanka”¦.”

That profile fits like a glove of the Tamil Tigers, who abducted over 5,300 under 14 years aged Tamil children and trained them to be child soldiers and suicide bombers, and murdered every leading member of the rival terrorist group TELO, PLOTE and EPRLF and  Tamil politicians, who did not toe their line for separation:  three Mayors of Jaffna, Lakshman Kadiragamar, Sri Lanka’s Foreign Minister, and Sam Tambimuhthu MP for Batticaloa and his wife who were gunned down on May 7, 1990, at the door step of the Canadian Embassy in Colombo who were on their way to collect their visas to visit Canada, and  intellectuals like Neelan Thiruchelvam, a Harvard Law Professor who was helping to draft the new Constitution and many more politicians and intellectuals.

Let’s remind Sue Nathan  that the Tamil Tigers were militarily eliminated on May 18, this year, and that there was no need for these Tamils to get on a Tamil Tiger owned ship to land on Canadian soil seeking refuge.

There is a deadly silence among the Liberal parliamentarians who stood up in relays in the House on February 4th during the Emergency Debate on Sri Lanka advocating our Government to bring over the 288,000 rescued Tamils from the temporary camps in the North of Sri Lanka. Why?  I suppose they now realize that they better be careful what they wish for as the chickens have finally come to roost in Canada, and very likely there may be many more ship loads.
