A hovering ‘Ides of march’ for the President and an ominous bloody future for the Nation
Posted on August 14th, 2013

I refer to the article in Ground Views titled: Is a Black July being threatened through the State media? By Dayan Jayatillake. He is replying to an article by Jayantha Gunesekera itself titled: TNA! Police powers a way to hurt Western Province Tamils. Gunasekera’s article is a warning to the TNA incorporated in the sentence: Let them not endanger the lives of and property of Colombo Tamils. What he is telling the TNA is: you cannot take a part of the whole only for yourself, and also take parts of the rest also for yourself without expecting a backlash. In short he is reacting to envisageable fall out from the Northern elections and the ongoing Tamilization of this Sinhala-Buddhist nation in full view of a government bending its back beyond its utmost to appease India and the White world.

Gunasekera further writes: Among those who live in the South are professionals “”…” lawyers, doctors, engineers, accountants. Many are in the corporate sector occupying high positions as chairmen of conglomerates. Quite a number are in business. Most of the imports such as sugar, potatoes, dhal, onions etc are in the hands of Tamil businessmen. All these Tamils function without any hindrance from the Central Government or the majority community. We wish to tell the TNA, do not draw hatred towards all Tamils by your communal minded attitude.

He goes on to state: If Police and Land Powers are given for instance to PCs in the WP, these Tamils (who are now living in peace and harmony) may have their peace and tranquility disturbed by Provincial Councilors, who will be in full control of these powers. 
 
It is good for the Tamils in the Western Province to think seriously of this factor and pressurize the TNA to give up their demand for Police and Land Powers. In a crisis brought about by the use of these powers, even the Central Government can say, “you clamoured for Police and Land Powers, and now you yourself are affected by the monster you created”. That Gunasekara’s appeal to the Tamils in the Western Province is of course akin to throwing water on the proverbial ducks’ backs or like pin pricks on leather backs, and not worth the ink wasted on the appeal is a foregone conclusion. What is happening before our eyes is a massive thought subtle colonization of Sinhala areas both by Tamils and Muslims.

DJ’s condemns outright Gunasekera’s viewpoint that land and police powers entrusted to the TNA following an eventual victory at the Northern polls could endanger Tamils living in the Western province through the exercise of similar powers by the Western PC. Jayatillake winds up his statement on the topic with an ominous warning to the Government: when and if the national state is unwilling or unable to protect its own citizens, that responsibility to protect, following endorsement by the Security Council devolves on the international community. How can we admonish the TNA for incessantly appealing to the so-called International Community to intervene in national issues when traitors in our midst are doing the same?

Where Jayatillake stands is crystal clear. He ran with the fox and hunted with the hound during his entire political avatarship. Now he espouses Tamil and FOREIGN platform themes hemming in the State from all sides, reducing it to the condition Duttu Gemunu assumed on his bed, all squashed and folded up, to impress his father on the sad condition of the motherland. That condition is now infinitely worse than in Duttu Gemunu’s time. Then the Singhalese were sandwiched between the Tamils in the North and the Sea. Now the country is overtly being overrun by Tamils and Muslims. With the Northern elections the stage is set for the clamour, national and international for the reunification of North and East with Tamils and Muslims joining hands to enforce the Tamil claim. What will follow thereafter even a child will tell.
To worsen the Nation’s predicament the dominant Sinhala State is molly coddling the two major minorities, while shooting and killing Sinhala youth demanding the most basic ingredient of survival which is water. As for its head, he is seated in the shade of his official residence drunk with his elixir of power and immortality, dreaming of his empty new status as Head of the Commonwealth Boozing Party and singing like a marijuana saturated reggae crooner: Everything will be alright”¦yeah yeah yeah, alright, alright, alright.
The thought that everything is alright and will be alright while allowing the Tamil-Muslim cancer to spread without excising and expunging it at its source is day dreaming in its purest form. So is also the surmised influence our man will have as chairman of the motley crowd that is the Commonwealth gathering. That chair will evolve into a contrivance of his impalement when the Commonwealth begins to assume more power over him than vice versa which is what he imagines, if we are to go by the declarations of his equally reggae Minister of Foreign Affairs.
That the TNA, the Muslim organizations and their Sinhala lackeys are back stabbing him is obvious. But less obvious yet still more dangerous is the fact that he is turning the majority community that elected him to his hot seat also into an enemy. As Chandrasena Pandithage pointed out in his regard a perduring “ƒ”¹…”Ides of March’ is hovering over his head. With the majority community fighting one another as at Welliweriya, and the minorities totally free to dance their own jig, in the reigning chaos no one will know from where a fatal and fateful shot would emanate. This is probably what the UNP too is waiting for. Although Ranil is vilified as a fool, he is definitely a notch above Mahinda in political awareness and strategy. It is he who, wittingly or unwittingly, has been instrumental in surrounding Mahinda with UNP mercenaries who are among his principal advisors.
If you cannot vanquish the enemy in face to face encounter, the next best is to infiltrate into his camp and await the opportune moment to do him in from within. This Ranil is doing to perfection. Though his influence from without the Mahinda camp appears insignificant, his influence from within is as insidious as it is over powering. Mahinda’s regime is a camouflaged UNP set up judging from its top heavy personnel structure and the directions it has taken. It has long since lost its originality. Hence very soon the argument as to whom else we could turn to if not to him would become completely sterile. We would not have to turn to anyone but just confront and be forced to accept the one that will be placed before us, whether we like it or not exactly as now, forced as we are to follow our red scarfed Pied Piper of Hamelon to the brink of the precipice.
The threat to the State is surely both from within and from without. Yet its demise will be induced by its own hands, just the same way it happened in Iraq, Lybia, Egypt and elsewhere as well. Antagonistic forces will set up the stage and leave it to the State to act out its own tragedy. To be or not to be is the veritable question and MR, the Hamlet of Sri Lanka, has opted for the latter alternative.
With a government totally inactive against the combined Tamil and Muslim dangers that beset it, the Sangha will come to the fore. Private Singhalese forces will take the law into their own hands. Extra governmental units will parade the streets as watch dogs of the beleaguered nation. With its back against the wall, the government will call on the army to restore order leaving a Sinhala nation rent and torn asunder battling and killing its own as in a bid for collective suicide. It will be exactly as what is happening in Arab countries, while the naturally coloured Whites and the white painted browns and blacks, the string manipulators behind the scene, will look on with amusement and relish.
Even a fool with eyes to see knows that this country is heading for bloodshed. This is what the article of Jayantha Gunasekera prognosticates. Lots of the little make a lot. The President has lost his hold on the country. Little by little things have escaped his clenched fists and now have formed an insurmountable pile under him, a pile that harbours a relentlessly ticking time bomb. Its moment of detonation only the future will tell.

    DJ is wrong.

    Remember 1983?

    After the riot, Endia transported almost ALL the Tamilians OUT of Colombo to Jaffna. This is the R2P reaction again. The IC will see a NPC with police and land powers and LIKE IN ENDIA want Tamilians to be part of that “solution”.

    IC will separate the “fighting” Sinhalese and Tamilians.

    Tamilians LOVE to love in Colombo and they will be the LOSERS again.

    So R2P cannot hurt REAL SL interests in such a case.

  2. Lorenzo Says:

    I agree with Jayantha Gunesekera.

  3. Lorenzo Says:

    Mario and Jayantha forgot one important aspect. The Muslims.

    Muslims are the MAJORITY in Colombo City but they DON’T OWN MOST businesses in Colombo City which are owned by Tamilians. TOP posts in Colombo companies are held by Tamilians than Muslims.

    MORE Tamilian schools in Colombo than Muslim schools!

    So it is in the best interests of Muslims to erase Tamilians from Colombo, OWN their lands and businesses and blame the Sinhalese for it.

    This actually happened in 1983. ALL Tamil businesses where Tamilian owners DID NOT return (guess why they didn’t return) became Muslim owned!!

    Dear Mario Perera!…….Thanks so much for your article. Apart from 13th amendment & PCs, there is a biggest problem facing Lanka & the Sinahala Buddhist people are facing many probels DUE TO COLOMBO being occupied Tamils & Muslims.

    Colombo is central to any govt. or business communities, BUT as you mentioned the major businesses are owned by Tamils or Muslims. Also those two communities never have any idea of controlling their biirth rates. As most Sinhaklese familes have done TWO children oer family is a acceptable prposition to all communities.

    If not Sinhalese will be outnumbered by minorties in few years time. NOW most important problem is not 13th, or PCs, or how govt. wastes so much money, BUT who is going to DRIVE TAMILS & MUSLIMS from Colombo.? Other problems we all can handle & can advice our leaders how to do. WITHOUT evacuating Colombo of these TWO ciommunities & the UNDESIRABLES who are into drug trade & many other ruthless activities, we never heard of, when were in Sri Lanka about 40 years ago.

    ONCE that problem is handled, THEN we should FIND spaces in North & EAST for Sinhalese & other races who wish to settle in the North & East. This would PREVENT any such statements like THOSE TWO provinces are Tamil dominated or Muslim dominated etc.

    Sinhalese & others who wish to go to North & East must be encouraged by the govt. with financial incentives. WE CANNOT do this without making some sacrifices, when that is done, other major political problems can be solved easily.

    I think its in todays papers in lanka, a Buddhist monk has warned that THESE HICK-UPS are sign of times, & are preamles to major intrusion by foregn powers in Lanka. When AMERICA has so much to worry about in IRAQ, Afganiistan & other major problems, WHY ON earth in a shoort spell of two days, USA has pointed the fingure at our govt. & ALL they said, they ARE CONCERNED.. Then EU comes along like a parrot says, the same thing. A corner in Sri Lanka is suddenly CONCERN TO MAJOR powers. Now you all get the picture what they are planning to do.

    This is mainly DUE to Tamil Disaspora CANNOT fathom the GLOWING statements of Australlian delegation in Lanka, praising what our Govt. has done. Now just imagine if WHOLE commonwealth says the same, TAMILS have been telling massive lies aboout our country,& foreign Govts. have proof. When they see the ground situation with so many problems, Lanka has managed to do a LOT.

    That is why all TG.. or whatever invisible govt, senators all gathered and NOW trying to DISCREDIT Sri lanka. As Mr. Chandrsena Pathirage, mentioed in his article, WE SHOULD protect our President. He is the only man who can do something .. I know we all criticize him of nepotism, Corpution & host of other things..BUT he should receive PRAISE by doing this far, AGAINST ALL ODDS.

    Another idea I was thinking OUT LOUD.. is to form a committee comprising leadiing legal minds & people who are very experienced in Lankan matters, so that JOINTLY they can meet HE Rajapakshe & explain the garvity of the problems.

    I am NOT all that familair with lankan intelectuals.. BUT from articels I have read in newspapers.. I see Dr.SUDATH GUNSEKERA, Dr. C.Wijayasekera, SHENALI Waduge, Dr. Chanaa Bandarge & Dr. Gavin Karunathana comes to my mind. I am sure there may be more.

    I am sure when that group is formed, THEY themselves would know OTHER legal MINDS who can advice them how to get matters resolved with the Preident. many times I use to write, BUT no proper action has taken place. UNITED as a GROUP I am sure there will be some positive results.

    Thank you.all….this is just my idea, BUT I am sure there may be others in Lanka who could make some more suggestions to go about this constructively……May the Noble Triple Gems guard our Motherland.,GOD BLESS! ~J

    Yes there will be a backlash and a brutal backlash at that. Just this article alone outlines every reason why that would happen. In the Mirror it was reported that four Tamil Parliamentarians slipped out of the reaching hand of SIS to go to Great Britain to attend a conference of the “global movement” for the creation of Eelam.
    Of course the globe of nations will not line up to divide Sri Lanka but the TNA, Tamil Nadu, New Delhi and the Tamil Diaspora are begging for a second civil war. This time it will be short and brutal with the sole intent to purge Sri Lanka of the Tamil menace.
    Sri Lanka will face the obligatory condemnation but she will face them as a united nation. Eelam will continue to exist as long as the Tamils keep it alive, or simply put as long as there are enough of Tamils in Sri Lanka to form a separate nations.
    Tamils have a choice. They always have. They can easily go back to their true homeland of Tamil Nadu or face a systematic eradication of their culture, their temples, their selves till Sri Lanka is finally returned to the Buddhist Singhalese.
