Your listing Military – Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) at contains glaring errors and misconceptions. Just a few we noted:Tamil people of the island of Ceylon (now called Sri Lanka) constitute a distinct nation External Aid – LTTE’s overt organizations supported Tamil separatism by lobbying foreign governments

 

“”…” totally wrong, they are a minority group, grabbed power by serving the British and discriminated against the majority. You forgot to say that Tamil Eelam was to be achieved by Tamils using ethnic cleansing. Also the majority of Tamils live in Sinhala regions!!!””…” you left out the fact the the LTTE purchased the support of many western politicians to halt military aid to Sri Lanka, thus tilting the balance in favor of terrorists! Example: U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy and MPs in Britain.

Your listing Military – Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) at
* Brad Sherman (D-CA-27), Google “Brad Sherman LTTE”

* Rush Holt (D-NJ-12), Google “Rush Holt LTTE”

* Danny Davis (D-IL-7), Google “Danny Davis LTTE”

* David Price (D-NC-4), Google “David Price LTTE”

* Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), chairman of the Judiciary Committee

* Senator Robert Casey (D-PA), chairman of Foreign Relations Subcommittee

* Senator John Kerry (D-MA), chairman of Foreign Relations Committee

Google “obama tamil terrorists”

Several British politicians were identified working for the Terrorists: Labour MP Siobhain McDonagh, Gareth Thomas, Robert Evans, Keith Vaz, Virendra Sharma, Simon Hughes, Joan Ryan, Kim Howell, Britain’s envoy in Sri Lanka Dominic Chilcott and former London Mayor Ken Livingstone. Their support is critical for these terrorists who use UK as a solid base for raising funds and terrorizing democratic states.

LTTE “Tamil Tigers” and its UK-wide network: UK banning legislation is an appalling failure VIGIL Intelligence Report Overview (London Unit)

You forgot to mention that this Tamil terrorist Anton Balasingham lives in the UK, under the protection of the British government, while preaching racism, ethnic cleansing and terrorism.

No mention of Norway’s support for terror!!! Thanks to Norway, LTTE became more powerful and went on a killing spree! Norway even wanted to open shipping routes in the failed CFA to enable the Tamil terrorists to replenish their arms and kill more civilians. The LTTE assassinated Sri Lanka’s Foreign Minister during the Norway-brokered ceasefire while Norway looked the other way. Today, a large and active LTTE terror base exists in Norway.

Reports by the research organization Norwegians Against Terror (NAT) have claimed that many Sri Lankan Tamils, including LTTE cadres, were able to come to Norway on documents and passports bought from corrupt employees of the Norwegian Foreign Ministry. NAT has also shown that the Norwegian Foreign Ministry and the Oslo Municipality have given millions to the LTTE through front organizations, notably the TRO (Tamil Rehabilitation Organization) the world-famous fundraising front for the LTTE!

Those credible reports cited unlawful killings by paramilitaries were fabricated by the LTTE and fed to western news media. They happen to this very day. That is why not a single report is ever solidly backed by evidence on the ground. Hope you realize that this kind of fraud really works.

You say LTTE also allegedly used civilians as human shields. All reports show that they did. On the other hand this is not alleged? Why? ” “¦ reports cited unlawful killings by paramilitaries and others believed to be working with the awareness of the government, assassinations by unknown perpetrators, politically motivated killings, the continuing use of child soldiers by a paramilitary force associated with the government, disappearances, arbitrary arrests and detention, poor prison conditions, denial of fair public trial, government corruption and lack of transparency,” You can clearly see how LTTE’s atrocities are alleged, but government’s actions are all proven!!! Got bias?

You left out the part where nations such as Britain, France, Sweden and the U.S. did the utmost to try to save these same violent criminals so they can terrorize civilians further.

Google ‘Kouchner Miliband, Came, Saw, Could Not Conquer’

David Miliband and Bernard Kouchner, Foreign Ministers of United Kingdom and France refused to answer questions by Al Jazeera correspondent, David Charter about the duplicity of their governments in treating terrorism in Sri Lanka in contrast to that of Iraq and Afghanistan, the news channel said.

 

Is it possible to have your article re-written? Should we care about the truth?

Best,

    I am glad that there are people in the world who are not afraid to tell the truth and who stand for Justice and fair play.

    Many years ago in Australia, a Tamil Tiger friend of my brother admitted that they make non-factual statements against the SriLankan people and govt, because, they have found out that the people in Western nations are naive and gullible and many of them quite readily believe what they say without bothering to verify. When these lies are repeated over and over again, then. there will be many more who will accept them as true and eventually treated as “factual”. So I am not surprised to know that ignorant people like Francois Boo is now repeating these Tamil Tiger myths.
