Norwegians abandoned  peace for a  “peace” PROCESS  that  enthroned  Prabhakaran.

The Norwegian intervention in Sri Lanka had only one answer to every terrorist act orchestrated  by Prabhakaran, the late LTTE leader. When Kadirgamar, the internationally respected  Sri Lankan Foreign minster was assassinated  during a peace-process” monitored by the Norwegians, the latter sought to shield the Tigers from their crime in the name of the peace process, as stated by  the veteran journalist Sharminda Ferdinando who backed his claim using Wiki-leaks revelations.  Mark Salter is an apologist who  defends such crimes of  the Norwegians and the controversial Eric Solheim. Salter claimed (e.g.,  20th August, Island)  that  the crisis provoked by Kadirgamar’s assassination clearly necessitated redoubled efforts to bring the two sides back to the negotiating table. And this is exactly what the Norwegians did, including via the ‘secret’ letter to LTTE leader Prabakharan”.

When I pointed out the criminality and rank immorality of this attempt to shield the blood-stained hand of  a proven serial killer who began  killings as a teenager,  Mark Salter replied (25 August) with an implicitly  racist opening, stating that  a voice from the Sinhala diaspora” had taken  issue with  his endorsement of Norway’s misconduct. So, had I not been a Sinhalese would I have endorsed the Norwegians and ignored accountability to negotiate peace with a proven mass murderer?

Sebastian Rasalingam, a well known voice from the Tamil Diaspora wrote in 2008 about the Norwegian brokered cease-fire agreement (CFA) as follows: (
But the CFA, imposed without the consent of anybody, did NOT bring any relief to the ordinary Tamils living in the Vanni, ever under the Jackboot of Piraharan. In fact, the CFA sealed the fate of the Tamils, until Karuna took a decisive step and broke off from that Tyranny. Tamils will for ever be thankful to Karuna for that death-defying act”.

Should I remind Salter how the Norwegians reacted to Karuna’s break away and worked feverishly to restore Prabhakaran’s hegemony? It is not just the voices from the Sinhala diaspora”, but many significant voices among the Tamils, e.g., the journalist JBS Jeyraj, who  continually  clarioned against Prabhakaran’s tyranny.  However, the Norwegians never wanted to hear from the Tamil or  Sinhala peoples. Instead the Norwegians spent close to half a billion dollars setting up NGOs whose job was to spread the Norwegian gospel, hold workshops for journalists and opinion makers, hold rallies for the public, and collect statistics that re-affirmed the political message that they themselves had spun and spread! When Kadirgamar or  the army commander was shot  by the Tigers, the Reuter and AFP reporters never failed to quote  NGO-funded  spin doctors  like  Jehan Perera or  Saravanamuttu who sounded very like replaying Mark Salter!  Salter justifies this  mega-dollar-funded political purchase  of  public opinion in a country where the average monthly income is a few hindered dollars. He  claims that support for the CFA in particular was needed within the majority Sinhala community”, admitting that there was no support. Here again he targets the Sinhala community, just as he saw in me a Sinhala Diaspora” voice. Is he convinced that there was no need to promote peace” among the Tamil politicians who had become the mouth pieces of Prabhakaran and Anton Balasingham?  Anton and his wife were allegedly  privy to every political assassination of the Tigers, but they were also the partying buddies of Eric Solheim who conveniently paid for the Whiskey and the international jaunts!

The retired diplomat Izeth Hussein writes (27-Aug) that  the foreign presence in our ethnic problem has been far too intrusive”. But he asserts that I have never had the slightest doubt that Norway was impelled by nothing but the noblest motives …”. However, I hold that their good motives were propelled  by a moral blindness and a blinding desire to be dominant  players in world affairs.  There is no doubt  that the  medieval Christian fathers who advocated the massacre of thousands of heretics were impelled  by the Noblest Motives of executing God’s will”. But they were totally and completely morally blind. The Norwegians too were acting with the conviction that they are doing the right thing”. They knew that Prabhakaran had reneged every promise, starting from those made to his political associates  that he conveniently assassinated afterward, be it an Amirthalingam,  Uma Maheswaran or a Rajiv Gandhi. When Prabhakaran reneged Rajiv,  he sent the Indian military to  disarm the Tigers and contain them. Rajeev understood the limits to negotiations, unlike the Norwegians who advocate negotiations, and even more negotiations to cover up the latest layer of blood on Prabhakaran’s hand. The Norwegians had NO MECHANISM to ensure that Prabhakaran honoured promises made via his agents who went to Oslo  or Geneva at the behest of the peace process”. Prabhakaran had become so imperial that  co-chairs visiting the Tiger  counted a diplomatic success if they even got an audience” with the Tiger boss, let alone beg him to become a good boy!

Although Izeth Hussein diplomatically says that we should thank the Norwegians, he is savvy enough to know that the peace process prolonged the agony of the Vanni and soured the south, taking  thousands of victims from 2002 to 2009 when the bloodbath was ultimately stopped by the one and only method of dealing with mass murderers.

Did the Norwegians, or apologists like Mark Salter think that if a CFA were to hold  under the aegis of the co-chairs, then the Tamils  can live under Prabhakaran and thrive as a people?   Tamils living in the Vanni knew that to be sheer pie in the sky”. Prabhakaran was useful to the upper-class (upper-caste) land-owning Tamil politicians living in the safety of Colombo, and to the Tiger Diaspora who fed the war with millions of dollars worth of armaments, as reported by the Canadian Royal Mounted Police and by Jane’s military analysts. Izeth Hussein, being an old-generation diplomat, would know that what mattered to the Norwegians was not PEACE, but the peace PROCESS.  Living under Prabhakaran’s Jackboot even if sanctioned by a negotiated peace was not peace”, but the sheer subjugation of a people to an armed cabal  led by a serial killer. In the best CFA scenario, the Tiger cabal  can reign for many years  conducting  low-intensity killings, while the Norwegians continue to  successfully avert higher-level conflagrations.  Thus  the Norwegians can become  the long-term  deal maker and  CEO of peace” in this corner of the planet.

When Kumar Rupasinghe, the CEO of a Norwegian-funded NGO  cajoled  the Tigers to some type of peace without going though the Norwegians, the Norwegians struck him down and reneged funding agreements with Rupasingha. The Norwegians did not want Peace, but wanted the peace PROCESS only if run by them, for them, and in their hands alone.

The diplomatic clout of the Norwegians maximizes when they run the peace machinery”.  It is the peace PROCESS”, and  not peace” itself, that the Norwegians wanted  to sustain for as long as possible, on the back of the Tamil people while the Sinhalese  are kept drowned in well-funded propaganda that labels any one who calls for the elimination of Prabhakaran as a Sinhala racist war-monger”. The Noway-funded NGOs  and their  associates would label Izeth Hussein as a Muslim Chauvinist-racist”  in the pay of the Sinhala government”, if he were to criticize Tamil militancy”. The Norwegians feted the LTTE in the name of negotiations, when the rest of the world banned them.

A peace process  may begin with pure motives, but when it fails to recognize evil, and begin to  kiss the blood-stained hand of a monster, then  Goodness has morphed  to its exact dialectical opposite, namely,   pure Evil. This was, and is, the moral failure of Norway, Erik Solheim and  apologists like Mark Salter.

    India was a major customer of Norwegian military communication equipment before the North Sea Oil. The Socialists of the West including Canada are in the hands of the Indian Empire. Solheim is a Socialist.

    When looking at Sri Lanka’s history, it is extremely obvious that from 600BC to around 1400AD there were three kingdoms, all Sinhala Buddhist, Ruhuna, Pihiti or Rajarata and Maya or Malayarata. Rajarata encompassed today’s North Central, North Western, Northern and even the Central Province. Ruhunu rata encompassed today’s Uva, Eastern and Southern Provinces. The Kandyan Kingdom from 1400AD encompassed most of the island inclusive of today’s Northern and the Eastern Provinces except for the Jaffna Peninsula. Even the Jaffna Peninsula was invaded and occupied by force by Aryachakravarthi (Pandyan) and actually did belong to Rajarata earlier and later the Kandyan Kingdom.

    Today’s provincial boundaries were drawn up by the British colonialists as per their divide and rule policy and the Sinhala people were not consulted when drawing up these provincial boundaries. In the meantime, most Sri Lankan Tamils of today were actually brought over during Dutch and British times to the Jaffna Peninsula and elsewhere to work on tobacco and indigo plantations which were planted extensively in all the colonies since they were much sought after and made a lot of money for the colonialists. Therefore they are recent arrivals and cannot claim homelands or separate states whatsoever.

    The usual practice when a colonial power hands over their former colonies is to hand it over to its original owners. Therefore the British colonialists should hand over the Kandyan Kingdom to the Kandyan Sinhalese from whom they took it by force. Since the Kandyan Kingdom encompassed the North and the East, these provinces too should be handed over to the Kandyan Sinhalese who are its rightful owners. Even the Jaffna Peninsula should be handed over to the Kandyan Sinhalese since it was part of Rajarata and was forcefully occupied by Aryachakravarthi (Pandyan).

    Since this has now been done already, the TNA and other separatist terrorists or the US, UK EU, Canada, Norway, Sweden and India cannot demand that present day Northern or even the Eastern provinces be provided any more powers or be made into federal states since this is totally going against the history and archaeology of the island and totally going against the rights of the Sinhala people who also have fundamental rights to claim the entire island inclusive of the North and the East as their homeland first and foremost. Therefore, the TNA , the separatist terrorists, the US, UK, Norway, Sweden, Canada and India has to respect the history and archaeology of the island and accept that the present day provincial councils are more than sufficient to run the affairs of the provinces. Sri Lanka must be a unitary state and no more powers should be provided to the provincial councils. In fact, when talking about the 13th amendment, the concurrent list subjects must be included in the national list. The provision where two provinces can merge should be deleted. The bogus claim of the North and the East being the homeland of the Tamil speaking people should be deleted. The entire island should be declared the homeland of all its peoples.

    Sinhala people should be resettled in the North in quite a large number if there is to be peace and harmony within the island since Sinhala people have every historical right to live in the North as well as the East. It is only due to ethnic cleansing of the North of Sinhala people by the LTTE and the other separatists that Sinhala people are not at present living in the North. Many thousands of landless elsewhere in the island especially Sinhala people should be provided land in the North since most of the vacant land in the country is in the North and in the East since both these provinces encompass over 28% of the land area of the island. Then only will there be peace since when people mix, there is more harmony. This is the only way towards peace and development in the island.

    Apart from highly commending you for taking legal action against the treacherous CBK (Chaura Rejina) regarding the defamatory and utter lies she keeps repeating to defame her rivals, legal action should be taken against her for stating that she will definitely devolve more powers to provincial Councils within the new constitution. Does this evil woman CBK think she owns Sri Lanka and that she is the one who is going to draw up the new constitution of Sri Lanka (according to the wishes of the imperialistic US, UK, EU, Canada, Norway, Sweden, India, the racist TNA and the separatist terrorists)? The constitution of Sri Lanka should satisfy first and foremost the majority of people of this island i.e. the Sinhala people and the Sinhala people firstly do not want to draw up a new constitution nor do they want any more powers whatsoever be provided to the provincial councils especially land, police and fiscal or to illegally merge the North and the East.

    Someone has to go to the supreme court and take action against treacherous CBK for suggesting that she will definitely devolve more powers to provincial councils within the yet to be drawn up constitution since this means the treacherous Ranil, Sirisena, CBK and Mangala have already drawn up a constitution to satisfy the imperialistic US, UK, EU, Canada, Norway, Sweden, India, the racist TNA and the separatist terrorists which is illegal.

    Norwegians loved hitler pira(mala)paharan. Sinhala modayas don’t know why. I’m sure hitler pira(mala)paharan,
    tamil selvan, anton balasinyo, kasippu joseph, soosei etc. etc.
    being catholics or they were trying to create catholic country in Sri Lanka wasn’t the reason for their die hard
    support. Or all the christian countries us, uk, france, germany, brasil, argentina, italy etc. etc. supported them.
    Even archibishop two three of south african supported them. Still Sinhala modayas scratching their heads and
    wonder why.

    No wonder Sinhalese are called modayas. Catholic run UNPatritoic party fool some Sinhala
    modayas with some tom pachas and they vote for them with their feet. Traitor tamils, mussies and catholics
    vote the UNPatriotics 100%. With a bit of support from some Sinhala modayas they always win. They know it
    so the UNPatriotics always do their best to please the minorities. Sinhalaya being famous for modayas can’t
    understand this simple truth.
