The TGTE thought the Palestinians would support their cause and help bolster support for the struggle.
But Palestine doesn't equate the Tamils claims of encroachment with their own. Because the Tamils are the only oppressed people who are seeking a homeland in someone else's sovereign land.
This is a blow to the Tamils.

I think Mahinda is analyzing the Palestinian model for Tamils. He will have to agree to Tamil Eelam to escape war crime charges. PLO trained Tamil militants in the 80s, don't forget.
