Dangers of striking deals with separatist minority parties in Sri Lanka
Posted on August 18th, 2015

For politicians whatever party or color, is elections about serving the people or serving their interests and the interests of those funding their campaigns. As election results are yet to conclude in the sudden Parliamentary elections being held to avoid impeaching the unelected Prime Minister and causing political embarrassment to him, the citizens have every right to feel worried at the trend taking place where with each election we are beginning to realize that external sources are influences the candidates, the political parties and even the voters.

If elections are about greed for power and the willingness of politicians and political parties to sacrifice principles and compromise the nation the voting public need to take a call and question their role in casting vote for such parties.

Must we hold elections for political parties to come to power by promising minority parties that they would separate the nation? The opposition to agreeing to separatism is primarily because the minority parties making the calls are spurred to demand separatism because it suits the agendas of external forces who are funding them.

The north-east merger proposed by India in the Indian drafted and forcibly imposed Indo-Lanka Accord of 1987 was to enable India to get close to taking the Trincomalee Harbor a quest they are not achieving using arm-twisting methods commercially. The new calls for re-merger of the North and East by Tamils and referring to Muslims as ‘Tamil-speaking’ is to politically get Muslims aligned to separating two key areas in what we can call a greater Eelam that hold strategic interest to both India and the West. The hurry is because Diego Garcia lease falls vacant in 2016 by which time they wish to rope in the political parties ready to prostitute themselves and declare these two areas as fully federal – autonomous enough to allow foreign missions / foreign aid and foreign bases to set up in the North without the approval of the Centre. The modalities for this new set up with new legal terminologies being introduced is probably being drafted creating a precedence using the UNHRC bogus resolutions as a front and excuse to grant full autonomy.

If we know the diabolical agendas of the West and are able to piece together the calls of these minority parties aligning it with the real intent of West and foolish India (also earmarked to be balkanized eventually) why are the politicians and the leaders of the two main political parties and their advisors clueless about this and lacking political will to address and confront this.

If a country is being earmarked to separate only to fulfil the geopolitical objectives of external powers it goes to show the arguments the minority parties are projecting as grievances are nothing but lies to canvass for the objective of those funding them.

No wonder to this date the TNA has yet to provide what Tamils are denied legally & constitutionally which legally and constitutionally are provided exclusively to Sinhalese only. This key question has been in limbo without answer for decades and instead we go on a merry go round with the external sources using their media and officials to promote the interests of the minority parties because it is through them that they can get what they want.

What we need to realize is that these ‘grievance’ crocodile tears are all synchronized and coordinated via money cables by external parties wanting to get a foothold in Sri Lanka for their own vested interest and have nothing to do with Tamils or Muslims. That the Tamil, Muslim populace have yet to realize that they are simply being used as pawns in a bigger game is nothing to be surprised because their brainwashing has not been happening yesterday but over a very long period of time using numerous incentives – refugee status to live abroad, minorities made to feel the privileged and preferred lot by the international community (aligned to the colonial divide and rule policy) the constant reference used by global ‘rights’ entities for minority rights again camouflaging the real agendas. It is only a handful of intelligent and well-read minority citizens able to understand this wish to have nothing to do with this diabolical agenda.

If external sources are influencing minorities the main political parties have without reading between the lines helped fortify the goals of the external sources in creating ghetto areas and using minorities in a ‘you scratch my back, I will scratch yours’ in a very dangerous game leading the country to a chaos.

As things stand it is obvious that the UNP has to reach out to the two separatist minority parties both claiming to want a separate state to form a government. The voters of the UNP need to next ask themselves do they want their party to enable separation just to come into a power carving Sri Lanka to pieces. This is a very serious question and it is very sad that there are no politicians or voters in this camp who have not come forward to say that their vote for UNP is not to agree to allow a separation of Sri Lanka under whatever name (because the West realizes that Sri Lankans are not as stupid as other countries and they are dabbling with words to fool the people – thus unitary but federal with full autonomy is not unitary at all.

For the UPFA it must understand that in areas of the island where minorities have been allowed to create ghetto areas, the UPFA loses votes because the minorities are funded to annoy the majority by their behaviour and actions by making new cultural demands and imposing these on the majority who find it an intrusion and are able to read the implications if allowed to go further. If UPFA/SLFP leaders and advisors have not realized this by now it is time they should before they begin to further lose the confidence of the majority that maintains their political existence. As results come the ghetto areas are giving big wins for separatist agenda. This is a very dangerous precedent and advisors need to take stock of this. What happens always is that the ghetto areas remain untouched and the majority areas get separated by drilling bogus issues into their minds.

A fault that both mainstream parties are equally accused of is that they spend 70% of their time wallowing over false grievances of minorities totally ignoring that the grievances of the majority that protects the very foundation and safety of the country is left unaddressed.

The TNA should have been neutralized by the appointment of a Presidential Commission to link it to LTTE and thus take legal action against it.

Why cant the two main political parties come to an agreement that the country will not be compromised and be separated/divided under whatever name the UN comes up with and this needs to be honoured and they should not align with minority parties vying for same. At the same time it is shameful that the minorities claiming hurt and crying that the majority are insensitive towards them when their separatist ways are pointed out still go in large numbers and cast their votes for the minority parties seeking separatism. The world media of course never highlights this hypocrisy and some Sinhalese are foolish enough only to fault the messenger and completely avoid what the warning is trying to project.

What tragically appears a foregone conclusion is that we have very few people who love this country. For most opportunism, one foot here and another foot overseas, selfishness, greed and hunger for power wins the day.

Understandably the minorities are all linked to foreign shores – Tamils to India/Tamil Nadu, Muslims to Middle East/India, Christian/Catholics following forced conversions after colonial rule. It is sadly the manner that the majority has been divided to forget that they have a role in protecting the history, heritage and identity of a country passed down to them through the sacrifices of national patriots and heroes and not be emissaries of Western liberal motives out to use them to devour the country and eliminate the identity first through multiculturalism/multifaith bringing a 2600 history on par with the colonial created modern systems and thereafter taking control of the future of the people through the Western media, trade, international systems in their control.

Cannot people read between the lines and simply ask what country has the West brought democracy to and enabled them to self-sustain their existence? Every country that the West has touched with their ‘democracy’ is today in tatters.

If the country is separated what next? have the parties thought about this and are the other countries that have been separated similarly on ethnic lines living as peacefully and happily as they believed they would? NO….

    Well said Shenali, Quote “What tragically appears a foregone conclusion is that we have very few people who love this country. For most opportunism, one foot here and another foot overseas, selfishness, greed and hunger for power wins the day.”

    This is absolutely true. The reason is that in other countries such as USA which is a country of immigrants with a history of about only 200 years, children are taught to respect the flag and give allegiance to the country daily basis by singing the national anthem in front of the flag. In Sri Lanka we have to do the same.

    In addition they are taught the HISTORY of the country however tragic the incidents were. We have a 2600 year old written HISTORY which no other country in the world has. Yet from 1972 (?) CBK stopped by teaching HISTORY. Why? Because we might offend the minorities. Even President Mahinda Rajapakse when he was in power did not bring back teaching of HISTORY. I would suggest that Buddhist priests (BBS) should undertake this task since the schools have been taken over by Catholics and Christians. Unless we inculcate a love of the land in the children we cannot expect them to behave any other way than what you describe. Ranil W and CBK behave the way they do since their parents did not obviously respect the Sinhala Buddhist culture and were only interested in aping the West.

    People like CBK and Ranil W who ruled this country for a long time did nothing for the Sinhala Buddhists or for the country in general. President Mahinda Rajapakse achieved more in 6 years than they had done in 30 years. He defeated terrorism and developed the country rapidly. Through cheated elections it appears that in Jan 08’15 President Mahinda Rajapakse was defeated and it appears a seemingly ungrateful people both Sinhalese and Tamil voted for M. Sirisena. Today we see the same pattern repeated.

    The generation which has grown up are alienated from their Motherland and are wanting to go West to the paradise which the TV shows. It is only when they go out that they realize that they were already in paradise and did not realize it and nurture it.

    I weep for my people and Motherland. May we be saved from foolish and greedy leaders who have no love for the country or the people.

    The NEXT ISSUE is the ALLOCATION of the NATIONAL LIST seats, and HOW the two major parties could form a Parliamentary majority to govern, temporarily leaving aside Somarama Sirisena’s treacherous interventions!

    The UNPatriotic Front can easily form a National Government usin … .

    1. Its own UNF Elected Seats
    2. Its UNF National List Seats
    3. The SLMC Elected Seat
    4. Some UPFA Ship-Jumper Elected Seats
    5. Some UPFA Ship-Jumper National List Seats

    and finally, if necessary, after agreeing to DIVIDE Sri Lanka into a Federal State

    6. The TNA Elected Seats
    7. The TNA National List Seats

    On the opposing side, the UPFA-led Patriotic Forces are in a MUCH WORSE State ….

    1. UPFA Elected Seats …. MINUS the loss of Somarama Sirisena;s Ship-Jumpers to the UNpatriotic Front
    2. UPFA National LIst Seats …. MINUS the loss of Somarama Sirissena’s Ship-Jumpers to the UNpatriotic Front
    3. JVP Elected Seats …….. UNCERTAIN
    4. JVP National LIst Seats …. UNCERTAIN
    5. EPDP Elected Seat …. UNCERTAIN

    This CLEARLY SHOWS the TERRIBLE INJURY caused by Somarama Sirisena to the Patriotic Forces of the UPFA and the Sinhala Buddhist majority of Sri Lanka, who needed about 120 seats, at least, to offset DEFECTIONS by Ship-Jumpers and form a STABLE Government, because ALL Minority Communal Parties were OPPOSED to them.

    Given the TERRIBLE DIVIDE & RULE BARRIERS erected by Somarama Sirisena, the performance of the UPFA, as a whole, is still CREDIT WORTHY.

    However, GREED for PERSONAL GAIN, will now be ON HORRIFYING DISPLAY as UPFA Ship-Jumpers BEGIN TO SCRAMBLE for SCRAPS like HOGS at the SLOP TROUGH of UNpatriotic Front!The JOSTLING will be severe, not for faint-hearted or the high-minded! A piece of my country ON SALE for a few lakhs, or millions, of rupees and a political job! GOING CHEAP … I am DESPERATE, they scream!

    PATRIOTS! You may now WEEP RIVERS OF TEARS for our Motherland, Once PROUD, Now FALLEN and DEFENCELESS!

    So, I warn you to get out of the way of ……

    The Stampede of the Ship-Jumpers!

    Half-a-Jump, Half-a-Jump
    Half-a-Jump, Onward!
    Into the Valley of Treason
    Into the Jaws of Dishonor
    Jump the Ship-Jumpers!

    Bribes to the Left of them
    Jobs to the Right of Them
    Power in Front of the Them
    Cudgels to the Rear of Them
    Jump the Ship-Jumpers!

    Half-a-Jump, Half-a-Jump
    Half-a-Jump, Onward!
    Into the Valley of Tears
    Driven by Nameless Fears
    Jump the Ship-Jumpers!

    Jostled from the Left of them
    Jostled from the Right of them
    Massed Asses to the Front of them
    Hoots of Rage to the Rear of them
    Jump the Ship-Jumpers!

    Sri Lanka ruling party gets majority in parliament with106 seats

    Aug 18, Colombo: The ruling party of Sri Lanka’s minority government got the majority in the next parliament by winning 93 seats at the general elections held Monday and with the 13 bonus seats has secured 106 seats in the 225-member legislature.

    Although falling short of the 113 seats expected, the UNP more than doubled its presence in the new parliament from the 40 seats it had before.

    The UNP leader and incumbent Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe is expected to form his government once all the election results including preferential votes are released and confirmed by the Election Commissioner.

    The Prime Minister has stated that he will form a national government with the members of other political parties.

    However the Tamil party Tamil National Alliance (TNA), which has secured 16 seats inclusive of the 2 bonus seats, and the Marxist party, Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna with a total of six seats including the two bonus seats have indicated that they will not join a national government. They will sit in the opposition and support the government for key legislations on a case by case basis.

    The opposition United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA), which staged the former president Mahinda Rajapaksa’s comeback bid as prime minister, has received a total of 95 seats with the 12 bonus seats. The former leader will sit in the new parliament as an opposition MP.

    It is speculated that several UPFA members, who are loyal to President Maithripala Sirisena will join the government giving a clear majority to the Prime Minister Wickremasinghe’s government.

    BACKSTABBING LTTE OPerative LORENZO’s mission now is to broker a Marriage between MR and Somarama Sirisena (for whom BTW he coined the name of “Maru Sira” just to polish up his credentials with the Patriots) and get the PATRIOTS to swallow this defeat without any resistance questioning.

    If that is achieved, and the UPFA MPs are bought lock, stock and barrel, then the TNA can get the UNPatriotic Party to Devolve power to a Federal State of Proto-Eelam in the North and East, without too much protest from the “National Government”.

    As a DEDICATED EELAMIST who helped OUST the Patriotic MR/UPFA GoSL that posed an INSURMOUNTABLE BARRIER to EELAM, this is the NEXT DIRECTIVE LORENZO has received from the LTTE Secretariat in the Eelamist Tamil Diaspora and the TNA.

    To all those playing FOOTSIE with this SHAMELESS BACKSTABBING EELAMIST I say, you are ENABLING him and being led by the NOSE!

    Look how this TRAITOR LORENZO, who helped oust MR/UPFA in the GoSL in the Presidential Election, is now instructing the Patriots on the path forward to Eelam:

    …..”We” have to CORRECT our approach without blaming others at least now.

    …..”We” have a difficult journey ahead. FIRM POLICIES and UPRIGHT POLITICIANS are needed.

    NEXT, I am SURE, he will provide an itemized LIST of steps for the Patriots to SLAVISHLY follow.!

    It is like the FOX who stole the HENS coming back to get the HENHOUSE also!

    Are there any PATRIOTS STILL WILLING to be led by the NOSE by this SELF-INCRIMINATED EELAMIST DISINFORMATION specialist? Hello …. ANY Patriotic HOGS out there volunteering for NOSE-LEAD-TRAINING by LORENZO the EELAMIST Operative???

    Now this SHAMELESS EELAMIST Operative Facebook LORENZO, POSING as a “born again” PATRIOT, is LECTURING Former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa on the Security of Sri Lanka!

    Have you seen a GREATER LEVEL of SHEER ARROGANCE, than the LECTURING of Gotabhaya, our hero who RESCUED our Motherland, by a self-incriminated EELAMIST BACKSTABBER who helped OUST MR from the Presidency, and put Gotabhaya himself at risk??

    It was NOT TOO LONG AGO that this EELAMIST REPROBATE LORENZO was APPEALING to Gotabhaya Rajapaksa to a undertake a military coup-de-etat and takeover of the country MILITARILY!

    Soon after that, LORENZO received a NEW DIRECTIVE from the LTTE Secretariat in the Eelamist Tamil Diaspora to begin work on DEMONIZING and UNDERMINING the MR/UPFA GoSL and begin supporting Somarama Sirisena’ for PRESIDENT.

    Once that EELAMIST Goal was achieved, LORENZO received a NEW DIRECTIVE from that same EELAMIST LTTE Secretariat: BUTTRESS the UNPatriotic Front GoSL JUST LONG Enough to get POWER DEVOLVED to their Proto-Eelam.

    As you can see, the BACKSTABBING EELAMIST Operative LORENZO is working FULL BLAST on this latest Project!

    To do this he needs team of GULLIBLE Patrioitic Sri Lankan HOGS to feed at his EELAMIST TROUGH for TRAINING to be his DOCILE followers.
