THE FUTURE OF TAMIL PARLIAMENTARIANS IN SRI LANKA

    This Brian Senevirathne does not have any backbone. He is hiding underneath his wife. I am sure, on the bed also he is a weakling and always go underneath.

    His wife`s name I heard one Kamlini Arulpragasam. So he should be the mouth piece of his RACIST - TAMIL WIFE.

    [I met Raviraj some years ago when he was visiting Melbourne, Australia. He and I addressed a public meeting in Melbourne on the situation in Sri Lanka. After my address, I noticed that he was one of the first in the audience to rise to his feet and applaud. ]

    Because Brian Senevirathne was the only Singhala moron who sympathizes LTTE atrocities. Brian S. dumb founded when Rajini was killed, showed how sad he was but hesitate to condemn LTTE for the assassination.

    [On 8 November 2006, the GOSL decided to bomb a school in Kathiraveli where the refugees were accommodated.]

    How come this moron being a physician say the GOSL decided to bomb a school when he is not a team member of GOSL. The idiot should then give valid proof that the location was identified as a school and there after the GOSL bombed. The idiot refrain from saying that LTTE fired artilleries at SLA from a near by location.

    [A motorcycle with a pillion rider approached his official land cruiser. The pillion-rider carrying a bag, got off the cycle, walked across the road and emptied the entire magazine of the automatic rifle which was in the bag. He dropped the bag with the gun (a T-56), got back on the cycle and sped off. All this was in full view of dozens of people. ]

    Is this a proof that GOSL did that? Major Mutalif was killed the same way by LTTE .Why he does not say that Raviraj did the biggest mistake in his life by saying how Prabhakaran`s kids and wife live in Europe when ordinary Tamils suffer in North and East.

    Prabhakaran waited for the right time, the day after Raviraj`s protest in front of UN office against the civilian attack and took the advantage as he does using moron`s like Brian Senevirathne.

    Let us see if he has commented about the killings of Amirthalingam, Rajive Gandhi, Neelan Thiruchelvan and etc.

    We all are sad about the assassination of Raviraj and condemn who ever responsible for that, whether it is GOSL , Karuna or LTTE, but we do not condescend our selves to the lower depths Brian Senvirathna brought him self to ,using the media to promote LTTE terrorism.

    You should know well about `moron being a physician` magha. First of all, Kathiraveli was the site of a refugee camp for IDP Tamils that was bombed by SLA artillery fire and not a school. The school massacare was at Sencholai where several dozen school girls were bombed to death by the SLAF. I am sorry doctor it is hard I imagine to keep up with your own atrocities after a while. But get your facts straight `idiot`.

    Like I wrote earlier, what responsible govt in the world does not know whether it is bombing a school in its own country? And what responsible govt would ever even be asking that question? Have you seen Washington DC take out Miami recently? and I don`t mean the NFL! Only countries like Somalia and Sri Lanka and Rwanda and Sudan bomb their own people in their own country and say they did not know that there was a school there. Are you thinking about the artillery batteries on 42nd St and Broadway facing across the Hudson river into New Jersey? NO idiot becasue there is no such thing happening in any half civilized country on the planet.

    You are then dismissing BS statement[[On 8 November 2006, the GOSL decided to bomb a school in Kathiraveli where the refugees were accommodated.]

    Brian Senevirathna can BS to Tamils but not to us and the world.

    The whole world knows about the slaughter being carried out by your masters in the GOSL. You cannot hide it with your cunning and lies, it is there for everyone to see thanks to the internet and other improved means of communication and information. You can quibble about which massacre happened on which date but it doesnt change the fact we are talking about the massacre of innocent Tamil civilians whether they be the schoolchildren in Sencholai or the refugees bombed in their camps, or the other well documented massacres that you have been backside washing for your your terrorist masters in the GOSL.

    this is not very accurate. just look at the american civil rights movement of the 60s, how the blacks were treated by the white police in the southern states. or the wars between the black panthers and the white police. america does shoot it`s own citizens and treat them like sh*t but it depends on who these citizens are. may be there are some parallels.

    is all this rubbish really neccesary?

    [I have read so many articles from the Dr. He came here and there was an interview conducted with him on TV and i watched that as well. Full of energy for his age and the answers he gave brought tears to me eyes to think of a sinhala man saying we need jaffna! the key word being WE. i was pleasantly surprised!]

    the jury is still out on brian seneviratne. gaja has alluded to this and i tend to agree with her. i am not sure if he is just only interested in the limelight. i have listened to him on few different topics and he is no shrinking viloet when it comes to promoting himself. some of the things he says about gosl are truly fanciful. these types of distortions does great harm to a cause by making even the truth unbelievable in the end. brian seneviratne in the end will only give some useless emotional satisfaction to the tamils. tamils will have to fight for themselves.

    Denigrate the person but can you denigrate his arguments? The bombing of the orphanage was genocide no matter how much you try and defend it. SWRD [some of the things he says about gosl are truly fanciful.] Please elaborate.

    muru

    where do i start? first of all let me begin restating what i have already said elsewhere. i look at the sri lankan conflict in the context of a human conflict, not as a sinhala vs tamil one. so for me there is no sinhala truth or a tamil truth but truth and only truth. at least thats what i try to look for. neither you nor i was born yesterday so let us not come here and pretend as if we were.

    [Even at the cost of making this article too long, it is crucial to detail the record of the man, since it is these educated, articulate, outspoken, Tamils, future leaders of the Tamil people, who are being specifically targeted by the murderous Sinhalese regime in Colombo. Raviraj is not the first, nor will he be the last, unless the full weight of international public opinion is brought to bear on the Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL).]

    talking of being fanciful! now let me see your mental state of mind. muru, do you really believe this? lets face it, no one is really sure who killed raviraj, it could be anyone. dont give me crap like army camps being near, when the army commander can be attacked in the army headquarters! where is his evidence? if it isnt fanciful is there another word for it? if you are honest and want to face the truth, the ltte has killed more tamil intellectuals than anyone else, combined. what`s the ratio? so for him to cry only for raviraj and not for the ones killed by the ltte shows his dishonesty. i am not saying its right or wrong, its war and people get killed. but facts are facts.

    [unless the full weight of international public opinion is brought to bear on the Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL).]

    this clearly shows his motive. i am not saying its right or wrong. both sides vie for international opinion and it would be mad for any side not to use whatever is at their disposal. but any sri lankan adult should know what is happening and be honest about it. if you want, believe what you want but dont expect me to.

    [The bombing of the orphanage was genocide no matter how much you try and defend it.]

    I suppose you are talking about those girls who were undergoing first aid training.

    i am no fan of gosl and dont want to act as an apologist for it. but this is ltte propaganda in overdrive. to call this genocide gives true genocide a bad name. how are you so sure that orphans were deliberately targeted? in this, i tend to believe the government (this is not to say that gosl hasnt murdered civilians in other occasions) and these are my reasons. how would the gosl know that it was not a training camp for combatants? after the attack it showed that it was not sheltering orphans but providing `first aid` training to `military age` schoolgirls. if this is genocide as you say then there should be a constant stream of attacks on schools by the gosl. where is the evidence that this is happening?

    why is it so difficult for you to accept the more plausible argument in this instance, that the ltte doesent give a stuff about civilian deaths but try to wring every drop of propaganda value out of it. is it so far fetched to think that the ltte may be deliberately putting civilians in harms way for the very same reason?

    [Denigrate the person but can you denigrate his arguments?]

    in fact i was very mild in my criticism of the man, when he is really beneath contempt. when uneducated people are untruthful they can be excused as they dont know what they are doing. but when educated men like him who are liberal and fanciful with the truth to push one particular agenda it is abhorant. some times this is my beef with people like nada, magha and gaja.

    tamils have grievances, but they should be articulated by using the truth not lies. and there is enough truth out there to be used. there is absolutely no need to resort to fancy.

    [how are you so sure that orphans were deliberately targeted? in this, i tend to believe the government (this is not to say that gosl hasnt murdered civilians in other occasions) and these are my reasons. how would the gosl know that it was not a training camp for combatants?]

    The area was known to the government before hand as a civilian area. It was not a LTTE training camp. Both SLMM and UNICEF confirmed this.

    [is it so far fetched to think that the ltte may be deliberately putting civilians in harms way for the very same reason?] No i agree with you on this statement to a certain extent, the LTTE has put civilians in harms way in the past and even now. But for the orphanage bombing, I disagree vehemently. That was done on purpose - yes the SLA is not going after every school in the north-east systematically, but every day a SLA soldier goes berserk and gets the impulse to shoot a Tamil or two dead (or bomb a orphanage of `parai demalas`). This year alone over a 1000 Tamil civilians have been massacred - most of them killed extra-judicially at point blank range. This is not collateral damage. Ironically, Brian sen`s article on the orphanage bombing has the very convincing arguments:

    Brian sen used to be critical of the LTTE:

    I guess now he sees the worst of the two evils is the GoSL hence his silence on the LTTE.
