Hon. Justin Trudeau
Leader of the Liberal Party
House of Commons
Ottawa, Ontario.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Dear Sir:

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ItƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ was with disgust that I read your statement of May 19th on the anniversary of the death of the leaders of the most ruthless terrorist organization in the world, ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ the Tamil Tigers (LTTE) which is clearly aimed at the Sri Lankan Tamil community of Toronto in a continued effort by your party to retain the Tamil vote base it acquired by decades of supporting Canadian Tamil sponsored terrorism in Sri Lanka. You can not be unaware that members of the Liberal Party not onlyƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ supported Canadian Tamils to collect funds for terrorism in Sri Lanka but even helped to raise funds.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ In case you are ignorant ofƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Canadian sponsored terrorism in Sri Lanka, I bring to your attentionƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  a few facts to enlighten you.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 1. Two million dollars a month was sent by Canadian citizens to fund the LTTEƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ so they could buy arms and bombs to terrorise all Sri Lankans.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 2.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Several high profile bombings in Sri Lanka were paid for by Canadian Tamils most notably the bombing of the Central Bank where the RCMP established that the cheque for this bombing was sent from Canada. Another wasƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  the bombing of theƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Temple in Kandy, one of the most revered Buddhist shrines in the world.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 3. The hundreds of bombings of civilians in buses, trains, places of work, shops and roadsƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ as well as the massacres of many villagers as they worked or slept in their homes were all greeted with praise and encouragement by the Canadian Tamils andƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ broadcast in Canada as examples of their money at work.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ These facts illustrate that Canada was responsible for the death of thousands in Sri Lanka and a firm supporter of the mostƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  extreme terrorist organization in the world, the LTTE. The Liberal Party in particular, was responsible for this terrorism for decades with the active participation of members of your party.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ They provided the political backing for the Canadian Tamils promotion of terrorism and therefore are as responsible for the death and destruction in Sri Lanka as the LTTE cadres who carried out the acts of terrorism. Incidentally, many of the LTTE cadres who killed in Sri Lanka were welcomed by the Liberal adminstrations as “refugees”ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ which factƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ was clearlyƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ stated in the Canadian media such as Maclean’s Magazine.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ You state “We share in the grief of the Tamil community”. What about the grief of the other communities who are the victims of LTTE terrorism? Once again it seems that the victims are penalised by your support for the acts of the perpetrators of terrorism. It appears that because Canadian governments areƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ part of LTTE terrorism, you are only concerned about the perpetratorsƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ and a callous disregard ofƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ the victims.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Do you believe that they do not have grief that you ignore them?

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ “We remain steadfastly committed to achieving accountability and justice for the countless innocent civilians who died or have had their lives irreversibly changed by this long and bitter war” – good. ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Just remember and acknowledge that it was the LTTEƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  terrorists, sponsored by Canada, that was responsible for the long and bitter war and if you are committed to accountability and justice for the countless innocent civilians, that most of those who died were killed by the LTTE and were from the Sinhalese, Muslim and Tamil communities and that Canada was in great part responsible for prolonging terrorism in Sri Lanka. Please take immediate steps to be accountable by acknowledging to the people of Sri Lanka Canada’s role inƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ terrorising them, for irreversibly changing their lives by leaving thousands injured, homeless and without a means of livelihood because of Canadian sponsored terrorism. Establish an independent and transparent investigation into the role played by Canadians and Canadian governments into terrorism in Sri Lanka. You are the new head of the Liberal Party, if you are to be taken seriously, practice what you preach. Also, make note that it is not only the Sri Lankan Tamil supporters of the LTTE who have votes in Canada.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ As for the Commonwealth meeting in Sri LankaƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ you state,”the Liberal Party of Canada will continue to advocate for a boycott of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting this November in Colombo, Sri Lanka, and insist that the venue be changed”. Canada can insist all it likes but the fact of the matter is that Canada does not control the members of the Commonwealth who clearly indicated inƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ on April 26th, after hearing the bombastic John Baird’s statementƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ on behalf of Canada and his LTTE dictated policy,ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ that the venue would not be changed. ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ The whole world knows that Canada’s policy on Sri Lanka is based on pandering to the Tamil votes in Canada and not on any principles. A picture of Mr. Baird greeting LTTE supporters outside the meeting venue in London, U.K., spoke volumes. Further, most of the members of the Commonwealth have suffered from colonisation and remember the death, destruction and plunder of the colonisers. Also, they were not supporters of LTTE terrorism as were Canada, BritainƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ and the other “white” colonies and soƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ do not take dictates from the Tamil diaspora that is doing all it can to chastise Sri Lanka for killing the leadership of the LTTE and for notƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ giving into the demands of the “white west” to save the LTTE leadership so that they could continue to terrorise Sri Lanka.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Finally, your statement, “Canada is a proudly diverse and compassionate society, and we stand alongside our Canadian Tamil community on this solemn occasion. Let us continue our efforts to see the violence and human rights violations end once and for all”.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  That you consider the elimination of leaders of terrorism a “solemn occasion”ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ clearly illustrates your lack of understanding of Sri Lanka.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ May I point out to you thatƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ you are standing by those in the Tamil community that sponsored LTTE terrorism and claim that they will vote for you if you make these outlandish statements. By doing so you have alienated other Tamils who do not support the LTTEƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ and members of the other communities from Sri Lanka. With statements such as this, you may or may not get some of the LTTE Tamil vote but will surely not get the votes from otherƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Canadians of Sri Lankan origin.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Yours truly,

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Ira de Silva

One Response to “Statememt on Sri Lanka of May 19,2013”

  1. Ananda-USA Says:

    Dear old Billary Clinton is now positioning herself for a run for the US Presidency in 2016. She began in the time-honored traditional fashion of US Presidential candidates by announcing she had no interest whatever in running for the Presidency, which is of course pure HOGWASH!

    She declined to serve as the Secretary of State in Obama’s second term administration, so she could start disassociating herself from Obama’s policies, and have more freedom to pursue independent policies potentially critical of the Obama administration.

    Billary Clinton’s becoming the US President in 2016 presents HUGE problems for Sri Lanka. As we recall, Tamils for Clinton injected huge sums of illegal funds into Clinton’s 2008 Presidential campaign. Luckily, that illegal contribution of campaign funds was discovered, and the contributed funds were returned to the Tamils for Clinton front of the LTTE in a hurry by Billary’s campaign which feigned that she was not aware that the contribution was illegal.

    Billary, the woman of unbounded ambition that she is, did not lose sight of the fact that the Eelamist Tamil Diaspora represented a source of nearly UNLIMITED CAMPAIGN FUNDS if she runs for the US Presidency in 2016.
    As we all know, the US State Department under Billary’s control, took a very hardline against Sri Lanka … which continues to this day. Was there a connection between the promise of future funds in 2016 and the especially hardline she took against Sri Lanka during her tenure as Secretary of State, even going to the extent of pressuring the Government of Sri Lanka to allow the US to extract 50 of the top LTTE leaders, including Prabhakaran, out of the Mullaitivu pocket under the pretext of “saving lives of civilians”? We will never know really …. will we …. unless another Wikileaks spills the beans a decade from now!!

    Lo and behold, UNLIMITED CAMPAIGN FUNDS can NOW be contributed LEGALLY! The US Supreme Court decision that held that UNLIMITED AMOUNTS OF CAMPAIGN FUNDS can be LEGALLY donated to third-party political groups supporting political candidates in elections, but not directly to the candidates themselves, unleashed a FLOOD OF LOBBYISTS MONEY in the 2012 US Presidential election, undermining the very basis of American democracy. It is now Government OF the LOBBYISTS, BY the LOBBYISTS, FOR the LOBBYISTS in America.

    This law is unlikely to be repealed before the 2016 US Presidential elections, which means that Tamil Eelamists can contribute UNLIMITED FUNDS again to Billary Clinton’s campaign for the US Presidency in 2016. Having already demonstrated her undying support for the Eelamist cause, there is no doubt that a veritable FLOOD of Tamil Diaspora money will find its way into her campaign coffers. So much then for the PATRIOTISM OF US POLITICIANS serving the BEST INTEREST of their Nation; they are bought and sold like cattle at an auction.

    The bottomline is: the GOSL should ANTICIPATE & PREPARE for the possibility that Billary Clinton could become the next President of the United States, and if elected, could adopt policies EXTREMELY THREATENING to Sri Lanka’s survival as an Undivided Sovereign Nation.

    I recommend that the GOSL REPEAL the 13th Amendment, and DISMANTLE the Provincial Council System now leaving a few years to stabilize a new System of Governance, establish new DIPLOMATIC, ECONOMIC and Trade links to prepare for that event.

    Since CAMPAIGN FUNDS can now be contributed LEGALLY by any source to political lobbies, including foreign governments, it is possible, for example, for the GOSL to contribute more funds than the Tamil Diaspora can to the Republican Presidential candidate. Surely, a 250 Million USD campaign contribution would be well worth the money in return on the dollar to Sri Lanka’s security and survival!!

    If the RUMP of the World’s Most Dangerous Terrorist Movement (CIA assessment) can buy US politicians legally to serve their interests undermining the very fabric of American politics, why can’t a legal and legitimate FRIENDLY government do so to counter that move FUNDAMENTALLY INIMICAL to the long-term INTERESTS of the United States?
