President Mahinda Rajapaksa:
You don’t ask that from the Americans! You don’t go and ask that of the British about Iraq, or Afghanistan or what is happening in Pakistan? Be fair with us…be fair with us… don’t treat Sri Lanka like this because we defeated terrorism. Unfortunately, other countries couldn’t defeat terrorism yet, although we have done that.
Interview transcript with Sri Lanka’s President Mahinda Rajapaksa and presenter Ms Fauziah Ibrahim
*****Shameless Acts by the LTTE supporters******
The Tamil Tiger Terrorists is the world’s richest, smartest and ruthless terrorist group as described by the FBI. They not only attack harmless people, but they attack the media in a way where misleading facts are fed to them and then spread to other people around the world.
For example, in 2002, Tamil Tiger supporters who work for BBC received an award from an LTTE leader for supporting the Tamil Tiger Terrorist movement by airing many stories on the news. Also, in 2006, the LTTE tried to bribe the FBI, with millions of dollars to remove their separatists group from the terrorist list, right then the LTTE got caught for bribery
the FBI, with millions of dollars to remove their separatists group from the terrorist list, right then the LTTE got caught for bribery.
tamil tiger terrorist speaks only of the 200 000 Tamil civilians in the northern end of Sri Lanka, they never goes on to speak about how harmoniously millions of other Tamils live in the Southern parts with Sinhalese, Muslim and other ethnic groups
they also doesn’t speak of the 90 million other Tamils living in Tamil Nadu, India. They endure a worse life, it may not be war but girls in the state of Tamil Nadu are constantly raped and married off very young to old men.
Sri Lankan Army stands for all the Sri Lankans without discrimination. But the LTTE diaspora living in UK, USA, Canada, and Aus wants to make a bad image about Sri Lanka. Their only effort is to create the path to bring their supporters to the European and American countries and lead the terrorism from there. The criminals they are trying to bring up will never do any good in those countries but the worst of spreading terrorism.
