Burial of Reconciliation If UNHRC Resolution Passed
Posted on March 26th, 2014

It will be the burial of reconciliation if the UNHRC resolution goes ahead. The best chance for reconciliation was immediately following May 2009 when the war ended. However, the Tamil community driven by vengeance, defeatism and false beliefs of Tamil homelands, and due to the absence of a Tamil leader with foresight, reconciliation was replaced by vengeful UNHRC and other foreign action against Sri Lanka. The sum product of all these was the murder of reconciliation in cold blood. Now the most decent thing they can do is to give reconciliation a decent burial. It borders total absurdity to call the anti-Sri Lanka UNHRC resolution a step closer to reconciliation. On the contrary, it is the demise of reconciliation.

Reconciliation for Tamils is Antagonism for Others

 Tamils are only 15% of the Sri Lankan population roughly the same percentage as African Americans in USA. What about the other 85%? What Tamils call reconciliation is not reconciliation for the others. For them it is antagonism. In other words, what Tamils consider to be reconciliation is antagonism for 85% of Sri Lankans. UNHRC resolutions have driven a wedge of suspicion, mistrust and hatred between Tamils and non-Tamils in Sri Lanka. Almost all non-Tamil Sri Lankans are highly appreciative of the 2009 war victory. That is 85% of the population. They are extremely grateful for security forces personnel for winning peace which has given every Sri Lankan a far safer life and new avenues of economic prosperity. Alleging war crimes on them arouses disgust and hatred among most Sri Lankans. What if Allied action in Germany and Japan during World War 2 was depicted as war crimes? That would have resulted in disgust and hatred among the populations in Allied nations.

 Tamils must redefine what they call reconciliation. Division of Sri Lanka, investigating heroics of Sri Lankan security forces and passing UNHRC resolutions against Sri Lanka are the opposite of reconciliation. They are modes of antagonism. Tamils must overcome their defeatist mentality because they are not treated as the defeated by other Sri Lankans. Unless this paradigm shift in their thinking takes place, Tamils are doomed to fail, yet again.

 UNHRC Cannot Create Tamil Elam

 Apart from vengeance, the other driving force of Tamils is Tamil Elam. Leading up to UNHRC sessions of 2012, 2013 and 2014, Tamils around the world petitioned the Council to take steps to create Tamil Elam ” an ethnically exclusive nation for Tamils in Sri Lankan territory. However, UNHRC has no mandate to do so. In fact any such attempt violates the United Nations Charter. Just because the UNHRC High Commissioner is a Tamil from South Africa, Tamils should not expect she can bring them any closer to Tamil Elam than the LTTE could.

 Retaining Apartheid residuals like the Tamil Thesawalamai Law (enacted by colonial rulers for the benefit of Malabar migrants), protesting against Sinhala settlements in the north and demanding demilitarisation in the north are other highly vengeful acts of Tamils. For true reconciliation, these demands must be shed.

 Any attempt to create a separate state, federal unit or independent nation within Sri Lanka will certainly lead to full-scale war. Partitioning of Sri Lanka will be no sweeter than the bloody partitioning of India-Pakistan and Pakistan-Bangladesh. If partitioning were to take place in the island, resultant violence will erase the Tamil community. India, Pakistan and Bangladesh had massive populations that could withstand the violence but the same cannot be said about the Tamil community in the north and the east.

  Therefore it is in the best interests of the Tamil community to build their desired homeland in South India leaving Sri Lanka aside.

 Gobi Only the Tip of New Tamil Terrorist Iceberg

 Tamil terrorists were annihilated in Sri Lanka in 2009. However, Tamil terrorists remained active in other countries; they still are. This is why 33 countries maintained the ban on LTTE and other Tamil front organisations. USA, India and EU have very well developed counter terrorism and intelligence gathering units constantly following up on Tamil terrorists active in their territories. Consequently they all decided against lifting the LTTE ban. Moreover, Tamil terrorist businesses including credit card fraud, gold smuggling, human trafficking and TGTE terror activities are in full gear as before. No further proof is needed to convince anyone Tamil terrorists are still alive outside Sri Lanka. It was this network that reached to Sri Lanka in the recent terror plot.                  

The timing of the terror attempt by the LTTE Rump could not have come at a more appropriate time. They planned it very well to coincide with the UNHRC session. However, the government acted with resolve to nip the terrorist attempt in the bud. Mother of three terrorists who rented out part of her house to Gobi was rightfully separated from her daughter. Otherwise she would take pride in ‘sacrificing’ her fourth child too for the ‘Tamil Elam cause’.

 Attempting to use terror to extort a separate state will fail with drastic consequences on the Tamil community. UNHRC provided tacit and covert support for the resurgence of Tamil terrorism but failed to cow down the government.

 Bury Reconciliation, Welcome Ethnic Integration

Reconciliation will be unceremoniously buried on the 28 March, 2014 with the passage of the anti-Sri Lanka UNHRC resolution. In its place ethnic integration should be placed. What Sri Lanka needs is ethnic integration, not reconciliation. Tamil exclusive territories should be turned into harmonious communities where people of all ethnicities coexist. Imaginary ethnic boundaries must be dismantled. Thesawalamei law which is a residue of Apartheid must be repealed.

Sri Lanka must present to the 2015 UNHRC session a bold National Integration Plan by own initiative and canvass for support among its membership. That should relieve the UNHRC to concentrate on more burning issues like Kashmir, Afghanistan, Chagos Islands, Falklands, Iraq and Syria.

    SL people always lived in peace wit each other even during the WAR.

    So there is NO NEED for reconciliation jokes. We don’t need to reconcile with TERRORISTS.

  2. Nanda Says:

    Hope MR will repeat is stanza ” My silence should not be taken as a weakness ” and start the WAR AGAINST SABOTAGE by Tamil Liberation Parasites and the murderous criminal elements of USA, UK, EU .

    1.Bury Reconciliation, Welcome Ethnic Integration (if happens, if not ALSO OK). Reconciliation for Tamils is Antagonism for Others
    2.Gobi Only the Tip of New Tamil Terrorist Iceberg ( DIG OUT THE CANCER NOW)

  3. mjaya Says:

    First and foremost

    GET RID OF 13A. We should make MR realize that if he wants to be reelected president he will HAVE TO abolish the 13A BEFORE the election.

    Lorenzo: Heard the news?

    The reason Gobi can’t be found is because he is recovering from plastic surgery. Praba had plenty of crimes against humanity, Gobi’s crime against humanity was being so damn ugly.

    “SL people always lived in peace with each other even during the WAR.

    This is the absolute truth.

    There is another truth that we must face: that MR is frozen stiff with fear of the ‘white bulls’ and ‘brown holy cow’. So whatever we say is like ‘playing the veena to a deaf elephant’.

    The Resolution in Geneva will go through and MR will play his game of taking one foot forward and two feet backwards till the time limits lapse. and so the agony of the nation will continue forced to remain the playground of the white bulls and the brown holy cow.

    I firmly believe with Lorenzo that in view of this impasse and the rampant corruption,lawlessness and waste which is snow balling all the time withe the ever widening abysmal gap between those who amass illegal wealth and others who creep and crawl to eke out a bare living, the solution lies with military intervention.

    Thank you Mario.

    This saturday’s PC elections will create MORE FAT CROOKS. There is NO HOPE in the POLITICAL STRUCTURE of SL. It must be changed. And the politicians will NEVER change it.

    WHY SHOULD THEY!!

    The parliament employs the DAD.
    PC employs the SON.
    MC employs the DAUGHTER IN LAW.

    I was talking to a DEPUTY DIRECTOR at *** and he was boasting how he gets HUGE BRIBERY money from Korean investors. These are FDIs he is robbing. Now he wants to buy INVESTMENT PROPERTIES in a foreign country.

    This has to change IF SL is to survive. Only a military intervened constitutional change and hand back to civilian rule can save SL.

  6. Lorenzo Says:

    Mjaya,

    He has an advantage. He can sneak out UNDETECTED at night.

    BTW I’m the same color! We blame the dry northern sea breeze for it!!

  7. Nanda Says:

    I wonder whether this bugger had any intention at all to finish off LTTE. He did so for survival, otherwise he and his siblings would have been dead. Cheating the poor farmer’s sons and daughters, he defeated LTTE, kiss the ground like a Muslim and assumed the Maha Raja status. Now for survival he is selling off whatever won by poor patriots back to Endia.

    When will the deaf elephant declare
    1. Endia is our enemy
    2. No more Ashit Leylanda and Bajajs and Tatas
    3. Tell US that they are the war criminals

    I have ALWAYS opposed “RECONCILIATION” as PREACHED by the Jaundiced West.

    How can you “RECONCILE” with the Nazis of Sri Lanka who murdered innocent people by tens of thousands in their quest of a SEPARATE RACIST APARTHEID State? They do not deserve any pity or compassion, and the heroic patriotic people of Sri Lanka have NOTHING to atone for or be forgiven by these murderers. We don’t want their “Forgiveness”, they are simply NOT QUALIFIED TO FORGIVE any of their victims. They began their murderous RAMPAGE in Sri Lanka and were deservedly CRUSHED utterly by their victims.

    Did the Victorious Allies “Reconcile” with the Nazis of Germany or the Wormongering Military Leadership of Japan? Did they “Rehabilitate” and whitewash their crimes and turn them into acceptable citizens. In fact, they were executed whenever they could be found, their political parties and idealogies were permanently PROSCRIBED, new contstitutions were IMPOSED on those nations to forever preclude them from returning to power, and laws were instuituted to prevent their immigration into Allied nations such as the USA and the UK. Even today, naturalized American citizens who were former Nazis who lied on their immigration application to get into the United States, are IMPRISONED, PROSECUTED and DEPORTED to their countries of origin when they are discovered. Nearly 80 years have elapsed since the end of World War II … but there has been NO RECONCILIATION with those murderers, and there NEVER WILL BE.

    So then, WHY IS IT that these very same countries who nwill NEVER RECONCILIATE with their muderous enemies of 80 years ago, COUNSEL RECONCILIATION to our Nazis … the Tamil Eelamist Terrorists … and THRUST them upon long suffering Sri Lanka as people who should be forgiven? Is it because the lives of their white people are INTRISICALLY more VALUABLE than the lives of our Sri Lankan citizens? Their appalling HYPOCRISY and DOUBLE STANDARDS know no BOUNDS, no INTROSPECTIVE evaluation, no sense of FAIR PLAY.

    We should not FORGIVE the Eelamists, nor should we RECONCILIATE with them. We should offer no FIG LEAF for them to hide their crimes behind and POSE as wailing victims demanding compensation and special rights; they will have to live with the HAUNTING memory of their atrocities and ATONE for them. The GOSL should fund a separate Government Department to keep alive the memory of the Holocaust perpetrated by the Eelamists, and require every visiting diplomat to pay homage to our Honoured Deadhold exhibitions in foreign countries EVERY YEAR. Our MULTITUDE of Hounoured Dead … parents, siblings, adults, children, neighbors, officials, teachers, doctors, policemen, soldiers, sailors and airmen should be remembered: They are GONE but should NEVER be FORGOTTEN!

    The Jewish people who NEVER let the Nazis bury the memory of the Jewish Holocaust and make them ATONE for it FOREVER … have it absolutely right! NO RECONCILIATION WITH NAZIS!

    The GOSL should follow the example set by the Jewish People and Israel: Never let the atrocities Eelamists inflicted on Sri Lanka and its people be whitewashed and forgotten in the name of this atrocious policy of “Reconciliation”! NEVER!

  10. Mr. Bernard Wijeyasingha Says:

    Sri Lanka won the resolution this year by a narrow margin. India abstained. But the war against a resurgent movement for Eelam has not died. It is ironic that Great Britain who demanded a comprehensive international investigation refused that very investigation when it came up regarding Ireland years ago. It is equally ironic that due to this demand India had to abstain in her vote in the resolution.

    But keep in mind India’s geopolitical plans for Sri Lanka remain the same. She wants to dominate Sri Lanka as a vassal state or create Eelam if she cannot. One way or the other India will continue her quest to realize her power in the Indian ocean region at the expense of Sri Lanka. India did not spend 28 years of supporting the world’s most lethal terrorist group for nothing and when she lost that war, India jumped on the Tamil Diaspora’s band wagon to slam Sri Lanka with cooked up human rights charges while shielding herself of similar charges

    Yesterday’s vote of India to abstain was mainly due to Great Britain pushing for a comprehensive international investigation into Sri Lanka’s human rights violations. Even then India would not sign it till it was limited to the years of 2002 to 2009. India saw the writing on the wall when Colombo demanded that she will pursue for the inclusion of the entire war which would also include the role the IPKF played and India’s overall human rights violations just on the war alone. Yesterday was a face saving day for India and a narrow victory for Colombo.

  11. Lorenzo Says:

    BW,

    It was a DEFEAT not a victory for SL.

    We appreciate the HARD WORK of Pakistan, Russia, China and Cuba to defeat the resolution.

  12. Ananda-USA Says:

    India massaged the UN Resolution to prevent the investigation of its crimes against Sri Lanka and atrocities by the IPKF, and then moved to the side by abstaining from the vote.

    We are NOT FOLLED by this; India is largely to blame for all of this, and SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE by the GOSL.

    Sri Lanka should REDUCE all aspects of involvement by India in Sri Lanka’s internal politics, our economy and our defense.

    India and the Neocolonial Western Powers initiated these problems for Sri Lanka thinking that Sri Lanka will roll over and give up.

    Instead, Sri Lanka should confound them by BOLDLY ENTERING INTO BILATERAL DEFENSE & MILITARY MANUFACTURING AGREEMENTS with China and Russia, and permitting them to develop MILITARY bases in Sri Lanka, including a Chinese Naval Base in Trincomalee.

    ………………………..
    US resolution on Sri Lanka adopted by UNHRC with a majority of 11 votes

    ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Mar 27, Geneva: The United States led resolution on Sri Lanka at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) was adopted today with a majority of 11 votes.

    Out of the 47 members of the UNHRC 23 voted for the resolution and 12 opposed it while another 12 abstained from voting.

  13. Lorenzo Says:

    Bloody ARGENTINA, Brazil, Estonia, South Korea voted against us.

    Good for Argentina to LOSE Fuckland.
    Kim should take care of South Korea.
    So Phillipines and Indonesia ABSTAINED this time. We should support China’s claims in SOUTH CHINA SEA.
    Bloody Japan backstabbed us again. Didn’t JR save Japan from China in WW2? In vain.
    Peru has LOTS of Japanese influence so they voted against us.
    Mexico and Italy run by drug lords and mafia so understandable.
    Nazi Germany is also understandable.

    We should BUST principles and support Russia in Ukraine.

    BRICS is BS. Brazil voted against us. Endia and South Africa abstained. So there is NO BRICS.

    Brazil, Endia and South Africa are in BRICS to FOOL Russia and China to gain entry to UN security council.

  14. Marco Says:

    The author opens with..
    “It will be the burial of reconciliation if the UNHRC resolution goes ahead. The best chance for reconciliation was immediately following May 2009 when the war ended.”

    Interestingly there appears to be a contradiction and/or change of tune from the very same author from his past articles “backlog” to this very same blog.

    However, i would agree with him that the golden opportunity was missed immediately following May 2009 for the best chance for reconciliation and truth (in any armed conflict you do have casualties – not zero!) instead we had lies and obfuscation from MRGOSL that was eventually found out and exposed.

    The truth will always prevail!

    Bernard- It is a victory (of sorts) in a land parched for justice!

    India plays a very clever diplomatic game and we have witnessed this yet again from savvy maneuverings.
    I do wish our diplomats and external affairs personal can learn (have they the intellect?) from this experience

  15. Nanda Says:

    At this moment I chose not to speak any bad on our FRIGHTENED president ( apart from his fear of failure).

    He says,”but I am not discouraged. We will continue with the reconciliation process I have started,” .

    YES sir. Please go back to 1 st April 2009, this time to Jaffna, not Mullathiv. Start getting rid of all separatists.

    Our learned foreign minister praised India for abstaining from the vote saying that India’s decision not to vote was significant.
    So India is not our enemy, it is only indifferent to our sorrows.

    One of the great Indians, Sri Nisargadatta said,
    “Our indifference to our neighbour’s´ sorrow brings suffering to our door”

    The Buddha said, ” fool worries, thinking, “I have sons, I have wealth.” Indeed, when he himself is not his own, whence are sons, whence is wealth? “

  16. Marco Says:

    I was rather bemused to hear an analysis from a political journalist regarding the “worry” of the ruling UPFA hierarchy on the forthcoming local (Southern and Western )election turnout on Saturday. Both these districts account for circa 48% of the GDP and equally have a cross section of “haves” and “have nots” and are usually cricket mad.
    If there was a low turn out it has nothing to do with the Geneva vote but the local electorate are “shell shocked” and depressed from the defeat at the World T20 by England having posted a formidable total.

  17. Nanda Says:

    After a new bomb blast somewhere, emergency shall be declared in the North.
    Dissolve Eealm council and repeal 13A immediately. THAT IS CALLED RECONCILLIATION with the GUN which is what Tamilians asking for.
    GIVE IT TO THEM !

  18. Nanda Says:

    Looks like Tamil Fools have suddenly received a Vitamin B injection !

  19. Nanda Says:

    We must immediately start better relationship with North Korea, Iran and support the underprivileged indigenous people of South Americas who are being raped by Americunts. Should sign a treaty with Venezuela.

  20. Lorenzo Says:

    Nanda,

    That should be the strategy.

    A bomb should go off in WELLAWATTEI so that emergency can be declared. NO Sinhala or Muslim casualties so NO electoral impact. That should teach TNA a lesson too. Gobi must be planning it already!! Tamils in Vanni HATE Colombo Tamils and call them LAP DOGS living in luxury who don’t intermarry with Vanni Tamilians.

    Our defence experts are SHORT TERM thinkers. Sometimes you have to INVEST (money going OUT) to make a return.

    But I DISAGREE on NK and Iran. They are JUNK STATES. We should NOT have anything with them.

    Venezuela certainly yes. Cuba absolutely.

    Dayan J said only he can get Cuba’s support. Wrong!

  21. RohanJay Says:

    Yes Mario Perera in Kadawata. It seems that the MR Govt is unable or unwilling to stand up and put to rest these false charges against Sri Lanka. I wonder how the Russian Govt would react if NATO using the UN started accusing Russia of Human rights violations in the final stages of a war.
    MR and friends should realise that MR’s inability to find a competent method to stand up against NATO/UN White imperialists is a matter of grave concern to all Sri Lankans right now. The Sinhalese people have been very generous in their support of him so far for destroying the LTTE. But if he and his govt doesn’t once and for all deal competently with these accusations. The Sinhalese people might turn against him as their patience will no doubt run thin as Sri Lankans do not want to endure another round of unfair accusations in March 2015 with all the problems related to that in Sri Lanka etc.
    Sri Lankan people will watch what happens in the aftermath of the UNHRC resolution very closely and if MR can’t stand up to UN/NATO countries. It could I fear be the beginning of the end of the MR Govt and the ending of Mahinda Rajapaksha’s political career. It would be a real shame as he is the one who defeated the LTTE. Mahinda Raajapaksha’s deserves to go out on a high. It is upto him therefore and his Govt to make sure his legacy and good name is protected into the future. This UNHRC 2014 could be make or brake of MR. Lets see what happens in the aftermath.
