Dec 26, Colombo: President Mahinda Rajapaksa today called for unity among Sri Lanka's diverse society in order to face challenges and build a safer nation. In a message to mark National Safety Day, held on today?s second anniversary of the tsunami disaster, the President said, ?The prevention of the severe effects caused upon the economy of a country by various genres of disasters depends on the level of awareness and the conception of a society about them.
We want to leave the Sinhala land exclusively for the Sinhala so their Buddhist - Sinhala culture can be fostered unencumbered by the Tamil 'problem', their economy developed, not having to spend billions in killing the Tamils so that the Eelam state and the Sinhala state could have very profitable inter-national trade and commerce, tourism and, yes, a healthy rivalry and a very friendly relationship. Could the Sinhala wish for anything better?
So why would the Sinhala kill tens of thousand of us, devastate half of our land, make hundreds of thousands flee their land and make many more hundreds of thousands refugees, blockade our land and starve many more hundreds of thousands, condemn us to preventable death by interdicting drugs from reaching us, constantly shell and bombard refugee camps, schools and hospitals and reduce us to a frightened, Why don't they leave us alone to mind our own business, develop our potential and to be a free and contended people?
The most 'charitable' reason I can think of is that they are impelled by the Nazi concept of lebensraum - the greed for our land for Sinhala expansionism. Look at the way the Sinhala are treating us now. It would be considerably worse (those who think it cannot get any worse do not yet know the Sinhala well) with the Sinhala ?flogging when we stand and kicking us when we sit until we are dead! Tamils are Tamils and Sinhale will be Sinhalese, Let's go separate ways, Let's rally Behind Prabhakaran
Long Live the Commander in Chief of Tamil Eelam Armed Forces the Rt. Hon. Prabhakaran
