The "MOU" and the "MOUSE" Trap
By Dr C Samaraweera
Ranil's, M.O.U., to Prabakaran and the LTTE is a MOUSE (Memorandum of
Understanding Surrender to Elam) trap to the Sinhalese people and their
motherland. It's a disaster waiting to happen, in the annals of 2546th
year of the Buddhist era to their history, culture, and religion of Sri
Lanka. Parabakaran is rewriting these historical manuscripts, ably assisted
by Sinhala quislings (Webster dictionary meaning, traitor who collaborates
with the enemy).
Recently, the scathing UTHR report of the Jaffna University Tamils accusing the government of abandoning their responsibility of protecting the Tamils who oppose the idea of Prabakaran being the "sole representative" of the Tamils, was a telling indictment, of the "MOU" farce being played out right now. Recently, it was reported in the SL papers that attempts were set in motion to prevent the Mahanayake's communicating with the people. Throughout history this has been their prerogative thru times of calamity. A pattern is clearly emerging of the similarities between the UNP and the LTTE of which the National Joint Committee must be cognizant. Is this the beginning of Ranil and the UNP being "sole representatives" of the South?, while Prabakaran has designated himself as the "sole representatives and enforcer" of the Tamils in the North and East, when it is clearly not so as reported by the UTHR. While, Parabakarn the terminator is alive and well, and the UNP prepares to deproscribe and forgive him for the thousands of Sinhalese and tamils killed. The UNP pursues the PA government, Sinhalese, military and police personnel with the passion of a personal vendetta against the opposition. They are being hounded and imprisoned on frivolous charges, when the government ignores the 600 policemen killed. Some of who were defending the Sinhalese against the LTTE "terminator." Is this the silencing of the Sinhala opposition?
The fact is that more Tamils live in peace and harmony with the Sinhalese
in the South. The international committee wants peace, all Sri Lankans
want peace, but not on the LTTE's terms. The Nationalistic Sinhala parties,
the JVP, the SJS, NMAT, Buddhists, Christians, Catholics, and Muslims
all want self determination for all the people of Sri Lanka not just for
the LTTE. You don't need to redefine providences and boundaries as proposed
by the LTTE and foreign collaborators to negotiate peace. Division of
the motherland will lead to eternal war and incubate hatred, a united
country brings peace and progress. The ongoing lessons of history India-Pakistan,
Palestine-Israel, British-IRA, Korea North-South, China-Taiwan, the wars
continue unabated. But the UNP and PA chose to ignore it for instant glory
and the peril of Sri Lanka. The Norwegian's who claim "facilitators" in
the Israel-Palestine land dispute and who fathered the Oslo Accords is
an unmitigated failure. Where are the UN, Norway, and US now, the "peace
brokers"? They are powerless while thousands of Palestinians are killed
and their houses demolished.
