Whether it be Japanese kamikaze pilots of World War II,Aum Supreme Truth (Aum) lead by Shoko Asahara, Basque Fatherland and Liberty (ETA), Hamas, Hezbollah, The Palestine Islamic Jihad (PIJ), Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya (Islamic Group, IG, Egyptian Islamic Group, the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, the Kuwaiti Dawa, the Algerian Armed Islamic Group, the LTTE, using one human being as a weapon, to anihilate a group of innocent lives can only be descibed as mass murder. This is Terrorism at its lowest and its worst.

Suicide bombers act in the belief that they will go straight to paradise, where they will get places of honour next to God. No human on this planet can claim that murder of innocent humans turns the murderer into a martyr. This is pure myth.

The Ten Commandments, the basis of ancient doctrine, adopted by Christianity clearly dictates that, "Thou Shall Not Kill", whilst Buddhism preaches that destroying any life, whether it be a human, animal or an insect, is deplorable.

Perhaps followers of Hinduism and Muslim Faiths care to enlighten us on the teachings of their Prophets in relation to willful destruction of innocent human lives. We only hear of Jihad or Fatwa or destruction. Can this be the basis of any religion?

Can any follower of any denomination produce a document which states that, blowing oneself up into smithereens and irrationally killing other innocent human beings will transport one's soul in a heaven?

Many of those who are in Leadership positions of these Terrorist organizations are controlling their followers like a shepherd keeps a herd of sheep. Like in many instances, in USA, Switzerland, West Indies, several of these Cult leaders first milked every asset owned by the followers and then directed them to commit mass suicide. LTTE, as well as Terrorist leaders in the Middle East, plan release of one suicide bomber at a time, to its own death, as well as to perpetrate murder and injury of other innocent bystanders. Calling this repulsive is an under statement.

Such Leaders who direct their followers to commit such acts of willful murder are guilty of murder themselves. And those who support these murderers by funding, and others who simply watch and do nothing to prevent such atrocities, are guilty of the crime by association and by default. And all of them, collectively should be subjected to trial for Crimes Against Humanity.

The bottom line and the prime motive of most of these Terrorist leaders, who brain wash the poor followers to perpetrate acts of committing suicide in order to murder the innocent is-; Their own personal selfish financial greed! The poor sheep get slaughtered whilst the shepherd laughs all the way to the bank.

Do you think, the Terrorist Troika, the King Cat or his Vocalist Balasingham or the Commander of Tigresses, Adele might set an example on attaining martyrdom by practicing what they preach? Not on your sweet life! Damn too much to lose by leaving the moolah behind.

For these cowards, hiding behind a bush in Wanniya or in a plush residence in London, protected by armed thugs, there are many naive innocent expendable Tamils waiting in line, to replace the ones who became murderous martyrs.

Do these martyrs get anywhere near any Nirvana or a similar cosy establishment? One could confidently state that, "Not on your Life." Because the relatives of the victims will be cursing the Terrorist who pulled the wire till Eternity. They burn in Hell unto Eternity.

Those who wish to highlight their revulsion to suicide bombings should support the Australian Dr. David Bernstein who is leading the campaign demanding the Government of Australia to act immediately to bring on a debate at the United Nations to declare clearly and unequivocally that the Practice of Suicide Bombing is a Crime Against Humanity.

U.S. Policy on Terrorism

Make no concessions, strike no deals

The official U.S. policy on terrorism embraces four stated goals:

*Make no concessions,
*Strike no deals with terrorists,
*Bring terrorists to justice for their crimes,
*Isolate and apply pressure to States that sponsor terrorism to force them to change their behavior.

Wonder if Ranil W or his minions read the LankaWeb in between the odd G&T?

How ironic that the venue for the so called "Peace Negotiations" is proposed to be Thailand, a country which is the hub of LTTE Terrorist logistics.

According to those who are privy to some very confidential chit-chat from the Tiger Den, it is very likely that no talks will be held either June 2002 or any other June. Therefore the choice of the venue is of neglible importance. Gives Ranil and his Mrs a few extra days in London.
