SINHALA FAKES (AND FLAKES)
Here is my response to Shyamon Jayasinghe's recent submission
titled Expatriate Patriots Look at yourselves.
Shyamon, you have used ample words, mostly coated with misnotions
and apparent malice, to attack true Sinhala patriots who do
not pull punches when they criticize supporters of LTTE separatist-terrorist-killers
and their own kind who hold separatist-terrorist sympathetic views.
The difference is that the LTTE separatist-terrorist supporters are
with an avowed goal and they openly espouse separatism whereas
the likes of you, who profess to be from the Sinhala community,
are just outright flakes. In essence, the
likes of you profess the same goal as the separatist-terrorists!
I suggest that we cut through the chase and get to the core of
Let me ask you the million-dollar, burning question as follows:.
Are you willing to give the LTTE, the world's most horrific terrorist
group, nearly half the land and 60% of the coastal boundary of Sri Lanka
as a separate state?
If the answer to this is "yes," then I have no further comment.
However, the answer I get from the likes of you is of course not an
"yes," but rather something cryptic like a "no,
but we should negotiate..." or "no, but we should undo past
wrongs..." or "no, but we should give peace a chance.."
etc. etc. which all essentially boil down to nevertheless an "yes" to
the separatist-terrorists as the LTTE is not interested in "undoing
past wrongs" or "negotiating" or "peace talking"
(except to buy time to strengthen), but only to chew out a totally separate,
racist state with their wanted-killer honcho as the supreme lord.
Any Sri Lankan who does not believe this - especially after
witnessing LTTE's duplicity with horrific consequences for
over nearly 20 years - has to be either a stark idiot
or surely mad!
Therefore, casting aside these floozy and empty posturing that
I usually get from Sinhala flakes (that truly drive me insane with
incredulity), let me get to the real issue, the way I see
There are certain Sinhala expatriates who consider themselves to
be the "enlightened liberals" and they takes great joy in
preaching the virtues of "compromise," "negotiations,"
and "peace talks" as the way to resolve this conflict
(Eureka! pay heed you less or unenlightened mortals!). These
individuals show that they are a "cut above the rest"
and to prove this point, often they take great pride in telling
others how many "Tamil friends" they have. They
also prattle constantly about the "injustices," be
they economic or political, that we are supposed to have perpetrated
upon the minority Tamil community, especially since our independence
from the White Masters (patriots, bear with me, I know the use of "independence" here
is a debatable point!). They could be ardent Christians (I know
most to be church-pillar hypocrites as their words do not
match actions), but one should not be surprised to find many good
so called Buddhist Sinhala "thoroughbreds" from Ananda/Nalanda and
Visaka also to be quite visible and vocal in this sub-culture
clan. Unlike the hypocritical Christians (yes, Lord Jesus
Christ would have a fit if he were to walk with these hypocrites today),
this latter kind Sinhalese, the "Thoroughbred Buddhists" as
they like to be know, are even more insidious as they take even
a greater delight in uttering the so called injustices that the
Sinhala Buddhists - their own kind, the most inhuman of the human
kind in their view - perpetrated upon the Tamils. Berating one's
own kind brings an immense but perverted joy to these emotionally
insecure souls. They truly believe such self-mortification
makes them look "enlightened," "liberal" and most
of all, "truly scholarly" in the world's (especially
western worlds) view. As they see it, after all, it must
take a special composition to degrade one's own blood and hence,
one has to be a "cut above the rest" when one does that!
How utterly dignity-bankrupt these individuals are!
Could they possibly be anymore artificial? They will sacrifice their
own blood, their proud heritage, their motherland (and mother in all
probability), just to look "admirably different" as compared
to their "ordinary" compatriots!
To these pathetic flakes I cannot say anything but a
loud "SHAME ON YOU!
To the truly Sri Lanka loving patriotic Sinhala Buddhist and Sinhala
Christian brothers and sisters I say in whisper BLESS YOU!
If they could see and hear, your words and deeds would give great
comfort to the countless Sinhala warriors who have died in battlefield,
selflessly safeguarding our beloved motherland since 2500 years ago.
