Lessons from Kosovo for the Tamil Eelam lobbyists

Tamils account for 76million the globe over. The British transported Tamils all round the planet as indentured labor throughout colonial occasions. The Tamils functioned as loyal slaves of the British.&nbsp&nbspDisproportionate possibilities and privileges paved the way for Tamils to mentally believe they were superior and above all other people and from this has sprouted the notion for the Tamils to have a separate state. Although there are hardly 2million Tamils physically living in Sri Lanka, 72million Tamils in fact reside in an Indian State that is referred to as State of the Tamils (Tamil Nadu) where Tamils are more than 99% of the population, exactly where Tamil language is the state language, where Tamil culture dominates, exactly where Hinduism prevails &#8211 virtually all components need for self-determination in a state that was amalgamated by the British to be named India. It is these arguments that the Tamils of Tamil Nadu started using to demand separatism from India but with India passing the pillow to Sri Lanka by creating Tamil militancy/LTTE Sri Lanka has become saddled with India&#8217s headache. Nonetheless, carving out separate states becoming the newest norm of the capitalist West outcome of which Kosovo came about in 2008 the newest attempt is Tamil Eelam but there are severe lessons for Tamils themselves to find out from. They very first need to come down a peg or two from cheering an eelam to questioning if Eelam will turn out to be a nightmare as the Kosovars are now discovering with no return as well!

Yugoslavia was broken into 7 states : Croatia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia, Bosnia &amp Herzegovina, Macedonia and Kosovo.

Kosovo independence came in 2008.&nbspKosovo Prime Minister Hashim Thaci is component of a criminal syndicate.&nbspThe PDK, led by Hashim Thaci was a former Kosovan Liberation Army commander.&nbspUS, the EU and the UN supported him and continue to do so. The Heritage Foundation and similar other worldwide thinktanks assistance the KLA-KDP, despite its criminal connections.&nbspAccording to Serbian Justice Minister Vladan Batic, &#8220the prosecution at the Hague war crimes tribunal has more than 40,000 pages of proof against former Kosovo Liberation Army leader Hashim Thaci,&nbsp (quoted by Radio B92, Belgrade, three July 2003).&nbsp

In April 2000, US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright &#8220ordered The Hague chief prosecutor Carla del Ponte to omit from the list of war crime suspects Hashim Thaci&#8221 (Tanjug, 6 Could 2000). Carla del Ponte subsequently claimed that there was not adequate proof to indict Thaci on war crimes. .

Just as in the case of Sri Lanka a nicely planned and funded set of lies enabled the disintegration of Yugoslavia and the creation of independent states that were ideal for the West to advance their agendas and get their hands on sources that would make a handful rich.

It is only after the harm is one particular and when there is no probabilities to reverse that the lies are coming out in a self-boasting by the villains!

A documentary by&nbspJonathan Dimbleby in 2000 confirms MEDIA LIED on behalf of the US/NATO. Media lied that there were &#8216ethnic cleansing&#8217 of the Kosovar Albanians creating the public opinion that NATO had the right to bomb and militarily intervene (doesn&#8217t it question the lies by MEDIA on behalf of West with regard to Sri Lanka!)

US/NATO employed MEDIA to led the globe to think ethnic cleansing took location. So far only 2000 bodies have been recovered. Doesn&#8217t that query the chorus of 40,000 to 125,000 claimed to be dead &amp missing in Sri Lanka with no providing so significantly as a single name.

Rambouillet Accords have been drafted with the hidden intention of creating separate states &amp concerns the present plethora of bogus resolutions against Sri Lanka by the very same players that developed Kosovo. What kind of Accord inserts provision permitting NATO freedom of movement not only in Kosovo but throughout Serbia with full immunity from all Yugoslav laws (watch out for such an inclusion in Sri Lanka&#8217s case for the same US/NATO forces)

Ninety per cent of Kosovo’s population is produced up of ethnic Albanians. At the finish of the conflict in 1999 numerous ethnic Serbs have been pushed out of Kosovo, but not all of them left. About 100,000 remained behind (recall the thousands of Sinhalese &amp Muslims chased out of the North by the LTTE &#8211 why was the planet silence on the ethnic cleansing by Tamils)

Existing scenario of independent Kosovo

  • Half of Kosovo’s 1.eight million folks are 25 or younger. Much more than 30,000 enter the job market yearly but only 8000 discover work.
  • Only 75 out of 192 states have recognized Kosovo independence
  • Russia claims it will not allow the cancelation of UN Resolution 1244, which confirms Serbia’s territorial integrity
  • International isolation : Afghani passport holders can cross 22 borders with out restrictions, whilst Kosovars can only travel to five countries visa-totally free: Turkey, Albania, Montenegro, Macedonia, and Haiti.
  • Unemployment in Kosovo highest in Europe &#8211 45%
  • half of Kosovo’s citizens struggle to survive on social advantages of less than $ two per day.
  • Kosovo economy in shambles : Domestic commerce documents are not recognized overseas due to the lack of diplomatic relations.
  • Kosovo imports goods and solutions worth about $ 200 million from neighboring countries such as Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina, it is not possible for Kosovo to reciprocate exports because Kosovo is not recognized.
  • West is no longer nice guy :&nbspGoods from Kosovo brought into the market of the European Union will be topic to added tariffs. Kosovo&#8217s as soon as close friends are now only concerned about business &amp profit!
  • Kosovo has no international postal or telephone code. Mobile telephone calls are channeled via Slovenia or Monaco at considerable expense.
  • Kosovo can’t acquire its own net IP address, inhibiting on-line acquiring, Net banking, and national cybersecurity.
  • Kosovo athletes can not even join international sports associations.
  • Kosovo is becoming gradually privatized.&nbspProperties have been becoming supplied for sale as if they were the holdings of politicians, rather than the resources of all Kosovo residents. Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright is attempting to acquire Kosovo Telecom.
  • Kosovo has become a prostitute/smuggling and human trafficking hub (both places that LTTE and Sri Lanka&#8217s North has been notorious for)
  • U.S. military base in Kosovo was constructed in 1999 without having consulting with the government of Serbia and is the largest U.S. military base built outside of the U.S.&nbspIf Kosovo has been offered independence why is there need to have for 17,000 UN &#8216peacekeepers&#8217 to stay?

If Kosovo is the EU&#8217s Iraq, Eelam will become West&#8217s gateway to balkanize the 3 giants of Asia. To bring this initiative to its grand conclusion is the inclusion of the man responsible for Kosovo Independence who is now one of the 3 members of the UNHRC panelhttp://www.lankaweb.com/news/ things/2014/06/27/navi-pillai- appoints-martti-ahtisaari- bribed-by-albanian-mafia-to- deliver-kosovo-independence- to-investigate-sri-lanka/

Who wanted Kosovo liberation, who got it and who is benefitting from it and was it truly worth it in the end are queries that the Tamils living in Sri Lanka need to have to ask themselves in certain those living in the North. A separate state in the North implies that they will not be welcome in the rest of Sri Lanka. Just as Kosovars are now isolated internationally economically disabled, internationally cut off and even those that helped them get independence giving a cold shoulder the precise very same is most likely to happen to the Tamils. A lot more dangerous is the realization of the vision of the existing Sri Lankan Prime Minister for a road/rail hyperlink to India which will mean the end of Sri Lankan Tamils in phase 1 and thereafter a total invasion colonization of Sri Lanka by India and finish of the Sinhalese race in Sri Lanka.

With the West&#8217s use of Islamic terrorism, the seeds are already planted for scores of future conflicts all of which will fill the purses of westerners and the local bastards enjoying producing income from facilitating the killing of their own individuals.

Do we really need to walk into such dismal occasions when we need to be learning from the blunders and manipulations taking place below our quite own eyes.

Kosovo&#8217s liberators had been identical as the LTTE. The political party that holds reign in independent Kosovo is no distinct to the LTTE representatives the TNA. Although Kosovars are now in a state of shock, vulnerable, fearful and in poverty the Tamils are continuing to vote for the TNA in spite of so many warnings offered to them. Should Tamils listen or take guidelines from the Tamil Diaspora all of whom hold foreign passports and are not citizens of Sri Lanka?

Let the Tamils of Sri Lanka understand at least now the error they are making in stubbornly pursuing a separate state when they need to comprehend that the state to be declared independent is to advance the West&#8217s geopolitical designs and have nothing at all to do with wanting to help Tamils. Tamils ought to also understand that they have utilized the discrimination and genocide themes beyond any level of tolerance.

2015 Basic Elections : Saving Sri Lanka’s Sovereignty

Sri Lanka is at a vital juncture. The situation is far a lot more dangerous than the 3 decades of terror that prevailed. It is such an intense scenario that calls for all politicians to set aside their self-centred political ideologies and cunning to recognize the thin line we are treading on and the abysmal outcome most likely to outcome unless we all rise to the occasion as a single nation guarding the nation from division or separation. This election is about voting to divide or safe the sovereignty of the country.
Let us take incidents and place them in point of view to comprehend the plot.
Firstly we need to have to recognize that with the implementation of the 13th&nbspamendment through the India forced Indo-Lanka Accord in 1987 and the introduction of the provincial council program, Sri Lanka is in structure federal. Nevertheless the Centre holds the powers to dismantle the provinces if they do not function to the countrys laws. The very best instance was the annulment of the merged North-East Provincial Council in 1990 when its Chief Minister Varatharaja Perumal declared Unilateral Declaration of Independence and thereafter ran off to India.
Moreover it have to also be stated that 36 of the 37 subjects have been devolved to the provinces barring police and land powers which have not been devolved to ANY of the provinces. Why should only the North seek it. The NPC cannot behave as spoilt young children throwing tantrums with no proving they are capable of governing the 36 powers beneath their purview! Certainly they are least interested in serving the men and women of the North proven by the easy example of utilization of the price range. TNA Provincial Administration requested Rs.five,831million for 2014 but had only utilized 25.17% for the whole 9months whereas the GOSL had spent&nbspRs.290,271 million from the National price range for the identical period. Who provided a service to the North &#8211 the GOSL or the NPC?
http://www.dailynews.lk/?q= attributes/sri-lanka-who-says- 13th-amendment-not-implemented
http://www.lankaweb.com/news/ products/2014/11/04/what-is-the- tamil-national-alliance- complaining-about/
Ever given that the Northern Provincial Council was established in 2012 with a former Supreme Court judge leaving Colombo where he lived for over 70 years to live for the initial time in the North there has been nothing but a harangue of complaints and whining with little accomplished to serve the men and women of the North. The TNA MPs had been travelling overseas campaigning with each other with LTTE diaspora among foreign leaders and UN officials.
The packaged list of complaints have included demanding the closure of military camps and removal of military personnel, accusations of rape, claims of vices, colonization of Sinhalese. Taken with each other what the clear intention is to take away military presence, nullify safety blanket over the North and make sure that no Sinhalese was given entry to North. This higher-handed initiative overlooked the fact that 10% of the population in the North in 1977 were Sinhalese and some Sinhalese had been living in the North nicely ahead of 1940s although sufficient archaeological and historical artefacts serve to prove the Sinhalese occupied the whole island just before Tamil migrants came from Tamil Nadu! As a result all mythical notions can be statistically &amp historically established incorrect even though cultural genocide of Sinhala Buddhist artefacts want to now be showcased against each Tamil politicians and LTTE/supporters.
To give oxygen to these demands by the TNA and the North Chief Minister in comes the usual culprits the human rights activists all of whom safe their monthly salaries from Western governments&nbsp&nbspplotting the outcome for Sri Lanka in Washington &amp London. Hence, we have C4, Sooka, Amnesty, HRW and their regional paid stooges all coming out with reports, panel discussions, statements which are then quoted as if from the Bible by the UN and foreign envoys and leaders which suffice to establish grounds for resolutions entirely ignoring the legalities involved. The worldwide systems function in such a way that there is not a soul to query how the extremely players that labored to avert the elimination of the LTTE militarily were the one&#8217s bringing the resolutions against Sri Lanka for war crimes/crimes against humanity partnered by internationally proscribed LTTE&#8217s handlers abroad! No a single came forward to question how investigation calls for the final phase ended up producing allegations on everything that could be packaged to bring their enemies to trial and place them out of the way of disturbing their plans for Sri Lanka.
It was the identical coalition that put together a widespread candidate and canvassed for the regime change in January 2015. The players have been the same. The stakeholders the same.
Now imagine exactly where these developments will gradually lead to:
  • Unelected Prime Minister assuring complete autonomy to the North in an interview to Indian media immediately right after the January 2015 Presidential elections
  • Applauds and bouquets pouring in from Western governments going so far as to even create state reports praising enhanced human rights within months of the modify in government.
  • Virtually buying more than key neighborhood entities like media / SL Bar even academia and steering the believed process of the men and women via a properly constructed media campaign feeding lies and distortions that men and women have been ready to believe and accept.
  • Northern Chief Minister demanding direct foreign aid and direct diplomatic ties.
  • Northern Chief Minister leaving for US without permission for &#8216tuition&#8217
  • Significant slip of the tongue revealing the actual intentions came when UNDP head referred to the Northern Provincial council as a &#8216Government&#8217&nbsp&nbspa ideal example of &#8216kata boru kiwuwath diva boru kiyanne netha&#8221&nbsphttp://www.lankaweb.com/news/ items/2015/06/11/use-of-the- term-northern-provincial- government/
  • UNDP and other INGOs offering only Northern Province direct help and other help especially in locations that are needed in the occasion of operating a separate state.
Reiteration of a separate state by means of the TNA election manifesto whilst simultaneously the Muslims are also claiming that unelected PM had provided to them in an unwritten election pledge. (these all contact to mind how the unelected PM signed the 2002 cease fire agreement giving territory to terrorists with out so a lot as even informing his personal cabinet and thereafter promoting himself for his wessanthara gesture).
What we want to take property from these developments is the realization that although LTTE was a creation of India &amp Britain that drafted the 13th&nbspamendment &amp the provincial council system keeping in mind Sri Lanka&#8217s geopolitical positioning and the Trinco all-natural harbour. It was with the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi that LTTE became directly controlled by the West by means of the Church and explains why Church leaders have been the mouthpieces for both Tamils and the LTTE more than the years inspite of more than 98% Tamils being Hindus. The three decades of terror that kept Sri Lanka destabalized and curtailed to firefighting and harm control enabled the West&#8217s covert operators the NGOs/INGOs and the UN entities to penetrate to Sri Lankan society and important structures that could be influenced &#8211 falling instant victims had been the SL media, handful of journalists, SL Bar Association and other essential state structures.
When the choice to militarily defeat the LTTE was taken the West did their greatest to stop the LTTE loss and when the elimination looked inevitable the West had a backup program currently in spot and therefore by bringing down the curtain on LTTE terrorism the next modus operandi was to resurrect the political arm of the LTTE by means of the TNA. This explains the manner in which considerable interest was shown by the West towards the TNA. The GOSL erred in not initiating action to investigate TNA&#8217s hyperlinks to LTTE prior to holding elections in the North.
With the West realizing that in the TNA they have an effortless partner ready to let them to use North/East so lengthy as Tamils were granted access to reside in the West, the subsequent stage was to safe a puppet down south. RanilW fitted the bill to perfection. With the potent position of the Presidency diluted for the next five years by installing a rainbow multicultural President not knowing where his allegiance is, the overall security and stability of the country is now in a volatile position. Neutralizing the enemy comes via the UN and by means of the illegal mechanisms now in force to topic the national leaders for bogus war crimes and remove them from the image.
So what does the image now look like? With elections just weeks away the TNA manifesto and open declaration that UNP Leader has promised them a separate state fits completely with the slip of the tongue by the UNDP head referring to the Northern Provincial Council as the Northern Government! This is the ultimate outcome pursued.
So what is the danger in TNA asking for autonomy? TNA is an unregistered coalition. It is the ITAK celebration that is the crucial party in this coalition. The ITAK &#8211 Illankai Tamil Arasu Katchchi has fooled the individuals by referring to itself as the Federal Celebration. Its Constitution has been challenged and ITAK is reluctant to reveal what ITAK&#8217s constitution aims &amp objectives are. If ITAK claims &#8216Shamasthi” stood for ‘federalism’ why did they substitute the word &#8216shamasthi&#8217 with &#8216innaipachchi&#8217 in August 2008 months prior to LTTE was eliminated? The allegation is that the new word stood for ITAK&#8217s aim for a confederacy. A confederacy is a union of independent and sovereign States.&nbsp&nbspA confederacy is formed with an intention to develop independent and sovereign States. The government of a confederation can withdraw from the Union and explains why TNA is generating a powerful bid for self-determination a quest that satisfies age-lengthy mental preparation that will leave them in the exact same abysmal predicament that the people of Kosovo finds themselves though only a handful of Tamils are now beginning to realize that the West is pursuing their &#8216cause&#8217 not for any enjoy of them but because that &#8216cause&#8217 fits effectively into their general program. If we look deeper we can comprehend the &#8216cause&#8217 was really produced by the West and promoted using selfish Tamil politicians who viewed it as an opportunity to rule over their personal folks!
Be that as it may possibly the West has been playing politics with the minds of people creating slogans to pitch the minorities against the majority in the time-tested successful divide &amp rule initiative.
It is in connecting the dots that we can put the puzzle collectively to understand why Mahinda Rajapakse is not the preferred choice but Ranil Wickremasinghe is whilst the dots should also reveal that these preferences are only until the job is accomplished and thereafter it is cheerio darling&#8230 as Saddam, Osama, Gaddafi and even Mubarak located out too late.
What we as citizens need to now comprehend is that in enabling a variety of foreign entities to interfere and dictate how a sovereign nation ought to run itself we have invited the enemy and now that enemy is slowing closing in and disturbing the structure of the country. Though Sri Lankans are poor at comparing Sri Lanka&#8217s case with the other nations that &#8216democracy&#8217 has been delivered to we are blindly walking into a trap that is destined to ruin the nation and our people.
Nationalist leaders will be imprisoned for concocted crimes whilst puppets who will be employed to get rid of all legislative, constitutional and other legal barriers and thereafter as soon as there of no use any a lot more they as well would be removed. Exactly where does that leave the rest of the nation&#8217s citizens?
That answer merits some critical thinking in the next couple of days by Sri Lankan citizens to comprehend that this election should not be to vote simply because parties promise to lessen the price tag of vital goods, promises the sun and the moon or increasing salaries. This election is extremely significantly about voting to safeguard the sovereignty of the nation or to blindly vote for parties that are willing to give the nation to foreign powers so lengthy as they will be kept in energy irrespective of what is excellent for the nation or people.

Sri Lanka’s future & voter fault lines

Sri Lanka&#8217s geopolitical positioning has been both a blessing and a curse. In spite of 17 invasions from South India, 3 Christian Western colonial occupations over 410 years at no time did Sri Lanka fall except to be handed more than to the enemy by regional traitors &#8211 Alas the exact same appears to be unfolding specifically 200 years later. It is the lessons from these past histories that beckon citizens to be cautious of history not been repeated given that within the political establishment there are parties &amp politicians ever ready to divide the nation if it enables them to stay in energy. If the voters vote considering within the parameters of their personal demands overlooking the bigger ramifications for the country the complete nation is most likely to endure and fall. Although we require to accept that there is no one hundred% best leader, policies must usually be nationalistic and making certain the sovereignty and national safety of the country comes very first. We do not elect folks to office to advance the agendas of other nations and these elements need to be working on the minds of all voters.
Let us look at how the voters feel:
The Tamil voters (Hindu, Christian/Catholic, Higher caste/class, low caste &amp poor)
  • Victims of Tamil politicians (some by option some with no option) tapping into getting Tamils to vote for &#8216our own folks&#8217 as a result major Tamils to self-alienate themselves from pondering nationally.
  • Self-alienation by such actions negates claims to want to reside in peaceful co-existence when Tamils align with separatist political parties and do not take a stand
  • Apart from a modest fraction the majority of Tamil voters do not believe nationally, statistically proven by the manner they continue to vote for separatist political parties and give preferential votes to politicians advertising separatism.
  • Providing credibility to racist/extremist Tamil politicians by continuing to vote for them
  • Fixated by a mythical notion of a Tamil homeland propagated for political agendas with no realizing that Tamils came from Tamil Nadu as migrants and settled down in Sri Lanka over diverse periods in time.&nbsp
  • Majority of Tamils hold an emotional gratitude to LTTE for enabling them to settle in western climes employing the &#8216discrimination&#8217 tag which continues to be utilised as a battering ram. Several will not realize that it is the desire to reside in the West not so much any hatred for Sinhalese that tends to make Tamils seek asylum. Sinhalese discrimination is only employed as a tool to get a foothold into the West and enable much better living and education for their young children &#8211 these realities are being manipulated by India, the West and Tamil politicians
  • It is suggested that Tamils come out of considering themselves as the aggrieved celebration and grow to be&nbsp&nbspa stakeholder to developing the country as an alternative of eternally complaining about what they have not been provided ignoring what they have got in just a handful of years when for three decades under LTTE they did not even get a paved road!
  • The nation cannot rise if a handful of individuals want to bring the nation down simply because their aspirations are not realized. When constitutionally, legally, legislatively all men and women are treated equal ahead of the law it is unfair to be promoting false notions.
    &nbspChristian/Catholic voters (Sinhalese &amp Tamil)
  • Divided in between putting religion or nation 1st considering that the headquarters of each religions are located and connected to Western imperialism and it was by converting Sinhala Buddhists and Tamil Hindus following 1505 that the spread of Christianity took spot via colonial policies and rule making a group of men and women who had been aligned to and loyal to Western dogmas and values. This notion continues to be nurtured by means of various modus operandi orchestrated by the West.
  • The conversion of natives to Christianity remains component of divide &amp rule policy and connected with increasing Christian foot soldiers in Asia facilitated by Christian NGOs &amp faith organizations operating as help workers &amp humanitarian help providers.
  • The hyperlinks of specific church leaders all through LTTE rule and even post-LTTE elimination queries the nature of the Church&#8217s involvement with LTTE and LTTE fronts overseas.
  • The Sunday congregation has been typically used to influence Church goers and establish who their allegiance need to be with in distinct throughout election instances. This is subtly accomplished.
  • It is only a handful of Christian/Catholic Sinhalese &amp Tamils who recognize the international picture, the ramifications and foreign agendas and place nation very first understanding the gameplan to divide the nation and the folks.
    Muslim voters
  • As opposed to in the case of Sinhalese &amp Tamils who are subdivided as Sinhalese Buddhists/Christians and Tamil Hindus/Christians &#8211 Muslims stick to Islam, a religion foreign to Sri Lanka and came with traders who were allowed to settle in Sri Lanka by the Sinhale kings.
  • The influence upon Muslims by means of the mosques is observed by the manner that Wahhabi Islam has penetrated into society raising alarm bells with a Muslim joining the Wahhabi ISIS movement and getting killed lately.
  • Though Muslims had been warned not to fall prey to the Wahhabi slogans of halal/Shariah banking/burka showcasing that these had been not component of genuine Islam, Muslims took these warnings negatively and now in connecting the dots it is straightforward to understand that the Wilpattu, Kattankudy, attacks on Sufis all align to US-Saudi infiltration to slowly build an additional battlefront in Sri Lanka employing Muslims in order for the West to safe the East of Sri Lanka. An endeavour the West can very easily penetrate employing the War on Terror against Jihadists! It is nevertheless not also late for the Muslims to disassociate themselves from these slogans pushed by Wahhabi mosques.
  • Even though several Muslim politicians prevail they usually align to political parties advertising only Muslim will and have absolutely nothing to supply nationally.
  • Muslims in voting for such ethno-religious parties statistically confirmed show that they too are not considering nationally however a lot they claim to want to live in peaceful co-existence.
  • The party that majority of Muslims end up voting for at all elections finish up crossing more than for individual gains and destabalizing the country. The Muslims that vote for such political parties are knowingly contributing to the destabalizing of the nation being aware of the behaviour of these parties and in distinct the politicians who have a record of crossing over for individual gains only.
    Sinhalese Buddhist voters
  • The majority votebase in Sri Lanka are the Sinhala Buddhists and it is these voters that all political parties attempt to win over (but only during election time &#8211 after that they are usually forgotten till the subsequent election)
  • The stability of the country is held collectively by the Sinhala Buddhist voters who look for how the trend is flowing and then use their votes to make certain the country is not compromised. Because ancient times the quest has been to break or divide the Sinhala Buddhists then only the country&#8217s protective layer is exposed for these that want to manage or manipulate it. For that reason the strength and foundation of the country rests with the Sinhala Buddhists and their will to hold the nation with each other.
  • However, Sinhalese voters are divided by religion, by political party, by class, by these that appear at safeguarding the nation whatever celebration comes to energy and these that choose foreign rule.
  • Although the 2 primary national political parties are not a lot separated in common ideologies the UNP leadership falling into the hands of 1 person for a distinct time period has projected the notion that the celebration stands for the rights of the minority completely ignoring the wrongs taking spot to the majority. Moreover, allegiance to always running to the West for guidance and assistance has diminished the sovereign aspect of governance by natives. The SLFP even though attempting to strike a balance has erred in not taking choices when folks have crossed boundaries and not communicating plans effectively to the public. SLFP has also erred in siding with minority leaders who have becoming pushing for anti-national themes which is what has tremendously contributed to the majority Buddhist voters feeling disappointed with the SLFP/UPFA policies. This region needs consideration. Minority politicians representing ethnic-based political parties must not be provided strategic portfolios (defense, education, financial, heritage &#8211 as they are funded to carry out diverse agendas and the damage completed will only be observed years later).
  • The Sinhala Buddhist voters stay disgruntled in view of incursions to their heritage sites, cultural genocide unaddressed, poverty amongst Sinhala Buddhists unaddressed and the lack of any Sinhala politician to publicly claim he/she stands for the rights and grievances of the Sinhala Buddhists when Tamil and Muslim politicians openly do so. A lacuna has been produced simply because even internationally there is no one particular to list out the grievances of the Sinhalese Buddhists for the globe to understand the other side of the story.
  • Then we have the kolambian voters even though statistically an unimportant number. However in view of their influence more than business and social circles the notion they project about Sri Lanka impacts the general nation&#8217s image. Historically, the Kolambians have been aligned to a pro-Western liberal worth method ignoring the ramifications for the history and heritage of Sri Lanka specifically offered the West&#8217s agenda of changing the demography of continents (culturally, religiously. Note the Church&#8217s orders to priests to enhance flocks and Christianize Asia. This endeavour demands conversion and converting men and women by many covert means to Christianity/Catholicism). When these facts are pointed out the instant response is to uncover fault with the messenger overlooking the dangers in the message! The targets for conversions are generally those who are poor and these who are stressed/mentally disturbed. Buddhists and Hindus do not have the wherewithal financially to compete with the billions the Church and Islam uses to convert folks except to highlight the subtle methods continents are becoming changed and politicians are made to keep silent!

There is considerably that Sri Lankan voters want to consider of far more than casting a vote due to the fact the value of petrol or gas is decreased or salaries are increased. The folks need to ask who can provide stability to the nation although not undermining and compromising the country to foreign elements waiting to use Sri Lanka for their own geopolitical interests. As a sovereign nation we should act as one particular. We do not vote politicians to advance the agendas of other nations. We must believe constantly on the lines of how protected and secure the nation is and which party will guarantee the nation is not divided or separated.

Christianizing of Sri Lanka – UNP’s Betrayal of Buddhism

Andrew Sparkes the British envoy to Nepal sparked controversy in demanding the appropriate to convert be included into Nepals new constitution. The Pope has vowed to convert 100million non-Christians to Christianity by 2025. Each West&#8217s &amp the Vaticans objectives compliment a &#8216Look East Policy&#8217 mirroring colonial rule with gun in a single hand and Bible in the other.&nbspDo non-Christians have a right to worry when Theravada Buddhist Asia is now targeted?&nbspYes but slogans of reconciliation, multiculturalism, multi-faith employing international agencies/envoys shoot down these issues. Nonetheless secularism is no license for conversion. The statistics are alarming.&nbspThe Centre for the Study of International Christianity declares Nepal to be the quickest Christianity developing country in the globe, followed by China, UAE, Saudi Arabia &amp Qatar. How has the UNP contributed to realization of Christianizing/Evangelizing Sri Lanka?
The function of the Church in Sri Lanka
From the time the Portuguese landed in Sinhale in 1505 the Church&#8217s mission was anti-Sinhala Buddhist and anti-national. The Church together with the Portuguese, Dutch and the British set out to oppress indigenous religions &#8211 Buddhism and Hinduism. Compulsory conversions was a kind of terrorism utilised that led to converting or facing death and destructions to kovils and temples. Portuguese historian Queroyz lists down the temples that have been destroyed and on top of which Churches are erected. Colonialism and conversions became trojan horses to plunder continents of Asia, Africa, Middle East and Latin America with the purpose to indoctrinate followers to appear down on neighborhood traditions, values, national heritage, indigenous religion and appear at history from the prism of the benefits that the West delivered. Indigenous heroes and patriots had been taught to be despised.
The Church succeeded in alienating a chunk of the native populace away from their heritage steering them to function as surrogates &amp fifth columnists and not showing the qualities of kshatriyas (patriotic warriors). They have been turned into sepoys or mercenaries of the Church/West. The question of where the allegiance of these converted Catholics lies whether or not to the State or to the wishes of the Vatican is typically shrouded in controversy.
In China, neighborhood Catholics are debarred from dealing with the Vatican to guarantee Chinese Catholics integrate with Chinese culture/nationalism. In Sri Lanka we can recall the Catholic Action that led to the failed military coup by Christian military officers in 1962. The allegations of the Church hyperlinks to the LTTE on behalf of the West by means of Christian NGOs as well as LTTE front heads who are Fathers and have openly compared Prabakaran with Jesus without having any objections from the Vatican.
The US Govt via the USAID allocates billions to more than 50,000 faith-based organizations with the distinct job to convert.
UK-linked Wahhabi Islam makes use of $ 100billon to export extremist Wahhabi Islam to purposely trigger disharmony and give West a foothold.
UNP &#8211 anti-Sinhala/anti-Buddhist
The oldest national political celebration in Sri Lanka is the United National Celebration. Its leader D S Senanayake is fondly identified as the Father of the Nation. Quick post-independent leaders of Sri Lanka have been practically all Christian/Catholic. English education was only for the converted and missionary education was capable to create natives loyal to Western dogma/ideology/values and even dress! As a result the absence of calls to reverse discrimination to the Sinhale nation/Sinhala Buddhists.
The UK&#8217s unwritten constitution follows a political tradition that tends to make the Queen the Head of the Church of England who appoints 15 representatives of the Church of England to the House of Lords. If so, why are efforts being made to subtly eliminate the foremost place given to Buddhism and proper to reclaim Sri Lanka as a Buddhist nation? When Tony Blair a Catholic became Prime Minister the 1st factor he did was to convert to Protestant which is moreorless what the Catholic UNP leaders did in converting or pretending to be Buddhists for political relevance. One particular month just before he left office Blair reconverted to Catholicism once more and concerns the ceremonial Buddhist politicians of Sri Lanka! Bands of pirith nool tied about wrists do not make politicians Buddhists.&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp
Evidence of UNP&#8217s pro-Christian hyperlinks
  • UNP leader unchallenged considering that 1994 is a Christian and only a Buddhist for cosmetic purposes.
  • His preferred advisors and close buddies are all evangelists and pro-Christians
  • Ranil Wickremasinghe is the Vice Chairmen of the IDU and Chairman of the Asia Pacific Democratic Union. The International Democrat Union(IDU) is an international grouping of conservative and Christian democratic political parties. Formed in 1983, the IDU gives a forum in which political parties holding similar beliefs can come collectively and exchange views on matters of policy and organizational interest, in order that they might act cooperatively, establish contacts, and present a unified voice toward the promotion of center-correct policies across the globe
  • No sooner the UNP Leader became Prime Minister in 2001 the Buddha Statue that was placed in front of Sirikotha from the time of the late Senanayakes was relocated.
  • His 1st achievement after taking workplace was to sign a ceasefire agreement on 22 Feb 2002 drafted by Evangelical Norway endorsed by LTTE putting these terrorists on par with a reputable elected Government and giving territory to these terrorists and claiming he had done a fantastic achievement!
  • When Ranil Wickramasinghe became Prime Minister in 2001 he appointed a Cabinet of Ministers of whom over 60% had been Christians by faith in a country where more than 70% were Buddhists and by the same equation how he came into power!
  • In 2001 for the 7.5% Christians and 8% Muslims, Ministry of Christian Affairs &amp Ministry for Muslim Affairs was designed. The same has been accomplished in his 2015 manifesto. No country in the planet has such Ministries for such numbers!
  • In 2001 he appointed John Amaratunga as Minister in charge of Interior Affairs below whom Public Safety and Police, as well as the Dept of Immigration &amp Emigration came so Visas had been freely granted to inbound Evangelists to spread the faith. He was also created the Minister of Christian Affairs.
  • Beneath this Minister, the Police were instructed to make sure that the whole month of December was celebrated for Christmas with lighting. The exact same portfolio has been provided in 2015.
  • Below Ranil&#8217s rule in 2001 Buddhist ceremonies were provided step-motherly treatment and in some circumstances directives were given not to issue permits for loudspeakers even for important Buddhist functions like Wesak and Poson
  • In 2001 illegal prayer centers around the country were given police protection in residential regions – Police had been instructed to ignore complaints produced by Buddhists when they complained about illegal religious activities
  • In the course of this identical period no interest was paid to excavation thefts of Buddhist artifacts and destruction of Buddhist archaeological sites as the Minister of Christian Affairs was also in charge of Public Safety and no surprise rapidly forward to 2015 the UNP leader has appointed the identical particular person as Minister for each portfolios as soon as once more!
  • The pattern continued with the appointments to the State Rupavahini &amp Radio station to guarantee Buddhist opinion and voice was drowned in 2001 with the exact same occurring now in 2015 and with each and every year the incursions gained a good results to the Christian bloc and a loss to the Buddhists! Enumerate that into future and lack of opposition to foretell what the ultimate outcome is targeted to be!
  • In 2002 the Prime Minister, the Media Minister and the Lakehouse had to extend an apology to the Maha Sangha for a mischievous try to challenge the authenticity of the relics enshrined in the sacred Temple of the Tooth with a group of non-Buddhist writers preparing an report issued below a Muslim writer who was fired from his post later.http://archives.dailynews.lk/two 002/01/21/new14.html&nbspnumerous attempts have been made making use of Christian/Muslim writers to denigrate Buddhists/Buddhism in each state &amp private print &amp electronic media. Practically all editors are non-Buddhists and normal columnists are non-Buddhists as well. None of the published news is in proportion to the 70% Buddhist populace.
  • The present editor of the&nbspSunday&nbspObserver was the very same editor in 2002 that published the post beneath a Muslim journalist! Present editors ofSunday&nbspObserver and Day-to-day News are Christians. We can previously recall yet another editor who forced Lakehouse employees to attend Bible classes!
  • Catholic Archbishop Rt.Rev. Oswild Gomis was appointed Chancellor of Colombo University permission was granted for Christian Evangelical groups to conduct “Open Air Prayer Healing ” sessions in close proximity to Buddhist temples so that Buddhist ceremonies would be drowned by the loudspeaker noises of the healing sessions
  • In 2005 possibly to prop up his vote, the UNP Leader launched a book on Buddhism which was challenged to a debate by JHU Ven. Omalpe Sobhitha Thero which the UNP leader did not accept and not surprisingly for a person who does not know what &#8216pasdun korale&#8217 is!
  • Then in 2005, the Archbishop of Colombo Rev. Oswald Gomis and the Golden Important crook Lalith Kotelawala inserted an advertisement titled &#8216Christians Awake&#8217 producing a veiled request for Christians and Catholics not to vote for Mahinda Rajapakse at the Presidential Election. This exact same Mahinda Rajapakse inspite of requests not to, invited the Pope to bless Sri Lanka but was not President to accept the invitee because the Catholics/Christians did not vote for him! The Church has come out once again subtly telling Christians/Catholics who to vote!
  • Numerous other Catholic priests openly side with the LTTE and have joined LTTE supporters to write to UN to press for war crimes charges against these who liberated the nation from terrorism.
  • Ranils chosen Minister of Ladies &amp Kids&#8217s Affairs wasdistributing Bibles to a school in Maligakanda where the students had been nearly completely Buddhist and Muslim The exact same minister is soliciting funds to convert as &#8216Born Once more&#8217 numerous
  • UNP Leader visited Portugal and personally invited the Prime Minister to&nbsp&nbspto pay a visit to Sri Lanka in 2005 to celebrate the 500th Anniversary of Portuguese colonization of Sri Lanka (and entry of Christianity to this nation) totally ignoring the murders&nbsp&nbspcommitted by the Portuguese in Sri Lanka and the destruction of temples &amp kovils on leading of which churches are nowadays erected.
  • In 2007 Jeyraj Fernandopulle said&nbsp&#8220Like me, Ranil Wickremesinghe and Ravi karunanayaka had been born Christians. It is incorrect for them to use the accusing finger at a priest of a different religion and get in touch with him names.&#8221 When Ranil attacked&nbspVenerable Ellawela Medhananda more than a automobile registration.
  • In 2010 the&nbspAll Island Monks Organisation accused Ranil W of insulting Buddhism
  • In 2012 Ranil Wickremasinghe claimed that the&nbspKapilavasthu relics had been those of Sariputta and Moggallana (the two disciples of Buddha) though Buddhists think the relics are those of Buddha!
  • Key UNP MPs openly denounce Buddhism going so far as to publicly declare that the Buddhist identity of Sri Lanka needs to be replaced.https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=lJ2WYlfjm-E
  • UNP has paid only lip service to occasions where Buddhists have faced attack ex: Bangladesh, Thailand, Myanmar and even in India
  • UNP has in no way been the voice for the Buddhist heritage/history of Sri Lanka though majority of UNP supporters are Sinhala Buddhists
  • Sri Lanka media is in the hands of pro-Christian editors who all take pains to promote UNP policies and politicians and denigrate Buddhists/Buddhism (content material evaluation of editorials / selected writers and their writings / themes and so on will reveal this clearly although examples have been offered in the Press Commission Report of 1964 and warrants a fresh commission)
  • Majority of influential middle class Catholics extend assistance to UNP what ever policies it holds in view of their allegiance to the Church neglecting the threat
  • The Christian Law &amp Order Minister in search of Rs.300m from China in exchange for assessment of Port City to renovate the Thewatte Church that has been lengthy accused of distorting history.http://www.lankaweb.com/news/ products/2015/07/27/distortion- of-buddhists-history-in-sri- lanka-by-thewatta-church-in- ragama-is-just-a-tip-of-a- large-ice-burg/

This cartoon sealed the fate of the UNP in 1956

It depicted Sir John Kotelawala riding an elephant (the symbol of the UNP) pointing a spear at the Buddha statue. Accompanying Sir John was individuals dressed in western garb drinking and dancing (Western Liberalism gradually attempting to take away the Buddhist cultural heritage of Sri Lanka) in the foreground was a calf killed and prepared to be barbecued…(Buddhists have been appealing against animal slaughter in maintaining with Buddhas preaching to treat Man and Animal equally) &#8211 the characters can simply be replaced by present day UNP leaders and the message hasn&#8217t changed much!&nbspThis cartoon shook the Sinhala Buddhists

The West are now using UNP to evangelize Sri Lanka in a bigger Asian strategy that is targeting the Theravada Buddhist nations that are covering China. This demands that Sri Lanka be alert as properly as project the plans in location and expose the West-Church links and their puppets in Sri Lanka. What Buddhists and converted Christians have to realize is that these imperialistic efforts have absolutely nothing to do with teachings of Christianity (in whatever kind) but Christianity is getting used as a tool to firstly enrich the Church and produce loyal Asian/African foot soldiers loyal to Western Christian hegemony out of the Third World.

Not numerous countries can boast of a civilizational history as extended as Sri Lanka. The glorious previous observed in monumental ancient relics/artefacts/ archaeological sites can not be allowed to be destroyed or its history distorted simply because other faiths do not have such wealthy previous to be proud of and a religion not based on myths but scientifically proven. For jealousy and spite&nbspour country can not become victim for ethno-religious demographic alter or become the ground to destroy fellow nations!

Devo vassatu kalena &#8211 Might gods give rain in due season

Sasa sampatti hotuca&nbsp &#8211 May possibly the crops be bountiful

Pito bhavatu lokoca &#8211 Could the folks be satisfied

Raja bhavatu dhammiko &#8211 Could the king be righteous

Only those who worth &amp want to preserve the nations historical past will foresee the dangers and endeavour to shield it from destruction

However, the committee has created far reaching recommendations to guarantee transparency and far better governance at the Central Bank of Sri Lanka.

Meanwhile, the Committee states it has noted critical lapses on the part of the Bank of Ceylon (BOC) via which Perpetual Investments, said to belong to Governor Mahendran&#8217s son-in-law, had routed an unusually huge quantity of bids for the 30-year bond.

The Committee observed that the bidding pattern of Perpetual Investments was uncommon and warranted additional investigations.

&#8220This exercising is vested with the PDD as per the Operational Manual of the PDD. The decision to accept the excess amount has been taken by the Tender Board Committee that comprises eight members.

&#8220The governor of Central Bank of Sri Lanka is not a member of the Tender Board Committee.&#8221

The Committee concluded that there was no proof to the impact that the governor had direct participation with regard to the activities of the PDD and the Tender Board Committee.

Otherwise, some components with only two parliamentary seats will not be in a position to make a lot hype. The President ought to prove in action if he is not involved in this anti-19th Amendment conspiracy,&#8221 Mr. Dissanayake told a news conference.

Sri Lanka’s borrowing soars just before parliamentary poll

(Adds government increasing t-bill threshold)

COLOMBO, April 6 (Reuters) – Sri Lanka’s government borrowing has risen sharply considering that January, central bank information showed on Monday, as the new government seeks to woo voters and strengthen its grip on energy at a parliamentary election.

The government has sharply elevated state sector wages and lowered duties on key commodities, placing pressure on government finances and pushing yields on Treasury bills up by in between 76 to 82 basis points (bps) considering that Jan. 7.

Possessing won a presidential election on Jan. 8, President Maithripala Sirisena appointed Ranil Wickramasinghe as prime minister, although he lacks a majority in the 225-seat parliament.

Sirisena has pledged to hold parliamentary elections, which could take location prior to the finish of June – a year ahead of schedule.

The total outstanding stock of T-bills and T-bonds rose by 216.six billion rupees ($ 1.63 billion) in the 1st three months of this year – equivalent to about 90 % of total net borrowing through T-bills and T-bonds in 2014.

Total outstanding dollar-denominated Sri Lanka Improvement Bonds (SLDB) jumped 18 percent in the first 3 months with the government borrowing a net 70 billion rupees worth SLDBs.

Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said he will seek parliamentary approval on Tuesday to raise the threshold limit in treasury bill borrowing to 1,250 billion rupees ($ 9.4 billion) from an earlier 850 billion rupees. As of Wednesday, outstanding treasury bills totalled 829.two billion rupees.

Government spokesman Rajitha Senaratne told Reuters on Friday that the government demands to borrow more to spend contractors who took on debt in order to complete ambitious infrastructure projects for the duration of the previous administration’s tenure.

Sirisena has ordered a evaluation of all infrastructure projects under the previous government, alleging corruption.

Market analysts mentioned the pressure on government finances was also due to a delay in a planned sovereign bond situation of up to $ 1.5 billion.

Roadshows to test investor appetite identified some fund managers have been reluctant to purchase the bond prior to the election, according to analysts, although there had been nonetheless some who favoured a eurobond problem this month.
