Life is cheap in Sinhalese dominated Sri Lanka, its a test of Australia's ethical maturity to prevent the Tamil refugees receiving a stay in torture camps on return to Sri lanka;

BUENOS DIAS amigo. Que pasa? Prospero Año Nuevo.
I say let all the Sri-Lankans into OZ, both Tamils and Sinhalese and let them sort it out in the streets of Sydney and Melbourne.eh. Australia needs some excitement, all this xenophobia and racism is making me yawn.
BTW, Colombians are welcome to OZ too as the US has made a mess of their country too. Just leave the cocaine, cartels and gangs back home.
Muchas Gracias. Lindas mujeres Bienvenido.
HI! the main event will be taking place in the streets of Colombo in 2008

That is why the guy from Colombia could relate to Colombo..or perhaps the TV show with Peter Falk..eh..I am booking a ringside seat and then the event will be transfered to the Beijing 2008 games as Sri Lankan ethnic event..eh..
BTW, the British Colonialists should have never planted tea gardens in Ceylon and let OZ admit Kamahl to sing about Dilmah tea eh..now we have a bunch of Ceylonese with a storm in a teacup..eh..
LOL...Kamahl is good mates with Rupert Murdoch, infact thats how he bypassed the white Australia Policy in the 1960's

Dilmah is run by Merril Fernando who uses Tamil slabe labour to pluck the tea. he recently changed his marketing tactics and advertises Dilmah as ethical tea! to cover up his workers payed a couple of rupees and a bowl of rice each.

Sinhalese people are worth a look. They are black skinned and resemble our indigenous folk, yet believe they are Aryans! infact this is the source of the conflict as they persecute Tamils and were great admirers of Hitler.

LTTE has been banned by almost every countries in the world and named it as number one Terrorist group in the world.
LTTE earns money by doing contract for money.They killed indian former prime minister Mr Ghandi for Money.
They involved American Pentagon Blast for MONEy.
LTTE is famous for Heroin Business and Child Soldiers.
They brainshed WOMEN to SUICIDE.
AMerican Governmant last month freezed all TRO ( Tamil Rehabilitation Organization )Accounts as they have directly funded money to LTTE.American Governmant emphazised to the world that helping LTTE MEANS HELPING TERRORISM
· April 8, 1994: A Canadian LTTE operative died when a bomb detonated prematurely. Four other bombs exploded at hotels and other civilian targets overnight.
· October 26th 1996. A Tamil Tiger assassin gunned down the LTTE's treasurer for France and a companion in Paris.(The deceased was apparently lining his own pockets too.) The gunman is believed to have escaped to Canada and is being hidden by the LTTE here.
· November 3, 1995. A suicide unit of the LTTE shot their way into an oil storage depot in Colombo. The terrorists then used the explosives strapped to their bodies to destroy 14 storage tanks -- causing $61 million in damage. They killed 23 soldiers and two civilians.
· November 24, 1995 a suicide cadre of the LTTE tried to penetrate the headquarters of the Sri Lankan Army. When stopped by guards, the first bomber detonated his explosive vest. Shortly afterwards, a second bomber detonated her vest in a crowd of civilian on-lookers. Casualties included 16 dead and 52 people injured.
· January 31, 1996. A truck bomb detonated in the Central Bank building in Colombo. Some 1,400 people were injured and 81 were killed.
· July 26, 1996, two bombs exploded on a commuter train near Colombo, killing at least 78 people.
· October 15, 1997, Another LTTE suicide bomber took a 400 kg truck bomb into the newly opened World Trade Centre in Colombo. This attack killed 18 people and wounded 100.
· January 25 1998, a LTTE Suicide squad detonated a truck bomb at the holiest site for Sinhalese Buddhists, the Temple of the Tooth. It killed 14 people. The outrageous attack was probably intended to provoke Sinhalese into communal rioting and counter-atrocities -- which, in classic insurgent strategy, would be of enormous benefit to the Tamil Tigers.
· March 5 1998, a bus bombing campaign in Colombo killed 32 people and wounded 250.
· December 18, 1999, simultaneous LTTE suicide bomber attacks were made on Sri Lankan President Kumaratunga and the Leader of the Opposition days before a federal election. President Kumaratunga lost an eye in the attack.…to be continued

Yes but Bhikkus told Dutugemenu that killing Tamils is ok

A sinhalese person I work with actually taught that to his son (and they live in Australia!)

Well, Why not hunt the real killers of the Civilians - NONE OTHER THAN THE SINHALA MILITARY- rather than blaming Tamils and LTTE.
WHY ON EARTH SRILANKA BLAMING LTTE FOR EVERYTHING WITHOUT ANY INVESTIGATIONS OR EVIDENCE OR LOGIC AND REFUSE UN MONITORS AND SABOTAGE ALL THE INVESTIGATIONS OF ALL KILLINGS OF CIVILIANS???????
JUST ASK YOURSELF AND THEN IF YOU HAVE THE EVIDENCE AGAINST OUR BRAVE BRILLIANT FREEDOM FIGHTERS THE LTTE, COME AND BLAME US.
IF YOU ARE REALLY CARE ABOUT CIVILIANS, YOU MUST HAVE BLAMED THE SRILANKAN MILITARY KILLINGS OF MORE THAN 10,000 TAMIL CIVILIANS IN COLD BLOOD AFTER MAHINDA BECAME THE CHIEF SINHALA TERRORIST.
PUT YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER BEFORE YOU ACCUSE OTHERS.

Yes Friend u r 100% right
Sinhalase make use of poor tamils in plantayion for cheap wages and then it kills them by bombing.Sinhalese take there lands and kill them.
Many Tamils are now like to come to Australia especialy Western Austrlia so they can live peacefully. Many are started coming in boats.
Australia can take all of them as refugees on humanitarian grounds. As most of the Tamils are christians they can easily assimilate into local community. Unlike sinhalese they claim to be Aryans, black Aryans , practising Neo-Nazism.
