ErÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¦.., Callum Macray (channel-4), HereÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s the Original Video:
Posted on February 20th, 2013
It is ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œUN-Human RightsÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ time, and Sri LankaÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s friend from Channel 4 , Mr. Callum Macray, isÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â preparing himself forÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â another fifteen minutes of fame, courtesy the expatriate terrorists from Sri Lanka.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Mr. Macray, according to his own Wikipedia description, is an award-winning film maker, writer and journalist currently with Outsider Television, which he had co-founded with Alex Sutherland in 1993.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â
Mr. MacrayÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s journalistic ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œvisionÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ of Sri Lanka changed the day that Channel 4 was ordered out of Sri Lanka for fabricating their coverage in favor of the terrorists.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Then onwards, any opportunity to launch a media-attack on the government of Sri Lanka was opportunistically seized by Mr. Macray to tarnish her image.
Channel 4ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“killing fieldsÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â
It is well known that the purported ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œkilling fieldsÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢, the documentary (in which Mr. Macray appears to make a claim to journalismÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s Hall-of-Fame), was a doctored video, made for propaganda by the Tamil terrorists.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â All dialog in the original video,which is in the hands of authorities, is in Tamil, and, some of the conversations go as: ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“remove bootsÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚ÂÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¦. ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“blindfoldÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚ÂÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¦ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¦, all in Tamil, the language of the extremists, and then the sound of a shot.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Just a reminder to Mr. Macray here: the terrorists did not wear bootsÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¦. Only the Sri Lankan soldiers did.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â This, and the other Tamilian dialog in the video all points to the shooter and the person who can be heard giving ordersÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â as being from the Tamil tigers.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œkilling fieldsÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ video that Mr. Macray airs without having authenticated, is, actually a video made by the Tamil terrorists to gain international sympathy.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Those shown killed in the video actually are Sri Lankan soldiers (the shooter has donned the uniform of disrobed soldiers).
It is well-known around Sri Lankan circles that a group of tigers who abandoned fight and fled to Germany is behind the doctored ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œkilling fieldsÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢. ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I really wish Mr. Macray, in his haste for action against Sri Lanka, had at least, in the name of journalism, taken pains to verify the authenticity of the (doctored) video.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Unfortunately, he did not, and this opportunity was seized by relatives of the terrorists, many who conveniently used the war to gain access to the greener pastures of the West (i.e., England). Unfortunately, Mr. MacrayÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s apparent quest for self-glory/revenge is resulting in an all-out attempt to tarnish the image of a proud and united Nation.
The original video can be viewed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmTBgV7X_CE .ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â It is only a matter of time that this will be removed by pro-ltte-groups.
Just to remind Mr. Macray of some obvious blunders the western media made during the end of the war on terror in Sri Lanka, Photo 1 (below) appeared all over the world airing early 2009.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The photo depicts Tamil civilians running in terror as smoke from an apparent bomb is seen rising.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â This would have served as ammunition for opportunistic anti-Sri Lanka forces to gain international sympathy.
Photo 1: Picture that alleges the Sri Lankan Army of shelling civilian zones.
Unfortunately for the ltte-propaganda machine, the original copy (Photo B), was leaked.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â This photo shows a young girl, smiling and clicking away the staged scene.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Unfortunately, it appears that the desperate ltte-rump has resorted to blatant fabrications to gain attention.
Photo 2 : The actual photo, showing the girl smiling and snapping away the staged photo-shoot.
I hope that Mr. Macray, once enlightened on the lengths of fabrication and forgery that the Tamil tiger terroristsÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ kith and kin have gone to gain sympathy from the international front, will realize the mistakes he has made.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â He has accused Sri Lanka, a sovereign country, who defended herself against manic terrorism, of gross violations, without even bothering to check authenticity of the videos and photos that channel 4 aired.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Mr. Macray even went to the length of airing this fake video during the UN gathering in New York.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â All protests against the validity of this video, were directed to journalismÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s standardÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s-panel in England, where judges, all of them former channel 4 employees, decided that channel 4 had ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“abided by (their) journalism standardsÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â(in airing ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œkilling fieldsÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢!!! ).
Sri Lanka is strong, and united: All Tamils, Muslims and Sinhalese are together: Sri Lanka will stand united against the bogus propaganda of individuals with vested interests.
