SO these two anti Tamil Malayalees are now coming back to have a lovely pow wow and tea with the genocidal Rajafucksy to see how the good genocidal work is progressing.
Why is the Indian gvernment not sending a Tamil to discuss about Eelam Tamils. Why are these well known anti Tamil Malayalee Menons are beign sent. We Eelam Tamils have not confidence in them. Shiv Shankar Menon has uttered so many statements about us the Eelam Tamils that are derogatory towareds us and our aspiration. He is the one who laughed and made fun of the Eelam Tamil genocide ( before the UN report) he is alleged to have sarcastically stated " that Tamil Nadu is progressing so much and developing so fast that the people of Tamil Nadu are not interested in or have time to think of trivial matters like the killing and genecide of Eelam Tamils" If this man had stated this and poked fun of us he has no right ot speak on our behalf.
He was very close to the war criminal Rajapakse and his brother Gothabhaya. This shows that India is not serious and is still supporting the racist Sinhalese. This is like sending the wolf to guard the sheep.
In Tamil we say "adu malaiyela nanaigerathendru Onnai aluthatham"
This is like the wolf weeping that the sheeep are gettign wetin the rain.
Sendign these two Malayalees or for that matter any Malayalee to speak to the Sinhalese abouth the Eelam Tamisl is the same story.

are you out of your mind. Malayalees are the most educated people in india and they are from dravidian community itself. while most of the DMK people are corrupt, you still want them to have a say in SL. India has no interest in your SL. We have our own problems to solve. We are struggling with rampant corruption. You have got protection from china. now what else you want. SL killed RG and from that time India is mute spectator. we don't want your dirty politics in India. you people kill each other and then blame other countries for the casualties. why blame India for what your people have done. Infact we must blame you who is encouraging drug supply to indian drug addicts. You people are also involved in prostitution. Every year you send hundreds of girls for prostitution.

but malayalees hate their fellow dravidian tamils. The problem is they think that ceylonese are also tamils like tamil nadu, but ceylonese are a different race to tamils. malayalees are low cast, who haven't achieved anything in singaporeand malaysia, so it must say a lot for india if the malayalees are the most educated in india lol. They are extremely jealous of the sucessful ceylonese of Singapore/Malaysia.

this is called prejudice. really. you mean to say malayalees hate tamils. no way. it is so unreal. malayalees are good people and have achieved a lot in india. why a malayalee from india, that too from higher post, will be anti-tamil. there are so many malayalees living in TN and many Tamils in kerala. they are living like one family. their languages are basically similar. Malayalam is tamil grammar+snaskrut words. ethnically they both resemble. if you say punjabis and malayalees have differences. it can be considered. but not malayalees and tamils. you got wrong information.

it is simple misinformation that malayalees are anti-tamils. do not try to spread false information.

Your a fool. I know Tamils and they all tell me that they don't trust malayalees. N the proof is in the pudding, the bastard that tricked rajiv into signing the indo lanka accord was a malayalee, all the top officials in the current congress are malayalees, the malayalee dogs were the ones who created the fake ceasefire or 2002 so don't tell me malayalees don't hate tamil nadu. let them hate tamil nadu I don't give a shit, but don't involve LTTE.

People who are more similar to each other actually hate each other more. Eg the ARabs and Jews or Sinhalese and Ceylonese. The malayalee pricks have low selft esteem that is why they always compare with tamils, but when they compare with the ceylonese or the jews they are nothing.

I do not care if the Malayalees are the most educated or the dumbest people in India. However it is a well known fact that certain section of their population harboured anti Tamil sentiments and created great harm to the Eelam Tamils.
Your county interfered and meddled a lot overtly and covertly. The present genocide and ethnic cleansing and the horrible plight of the indigenous Eelam Tamils is largely due to India. The Sinhalese could never have achieved this without India's blessing so do not talk crap.
Your Shiva Shankar Menon,Narayan and that Nambiar in the UN and his brother were all up to their anti Tamil tricks. You can go and report me to anyone I do not care. As it is a well known and well reported fact and there are many articles written regarding this. Do not think this is India to frighten me with these stupid useless threats. You are tying to do that so that the truth will not come out.

Nambiar brother was a special military advisor to the Sri Lankan Government and in May 2009 after the fall of the LTTe and the killing of more than 40000 Tamil that was declared a war crime by the UN and the incarceration of more than 300000 Vanni Tamil shad a huge party and felicitated the Rajapaksa's.

Your county was very much involved in the Eelam Tamil genocide and we Tamils will never forgive you for this.
The killing of Rajiv was tragic but he was an asshole and an idiot who listened to group of anti Tamils the same Malayalee gang. and sent the IPKF to loot murder and kill thousands of Eelam Tamils in the guise of peacekeeping. The Tamils were killed in their own land by a largely Punjabi foreign peace keeping force. Who the heck asked him to do that?
A killing of a moron ex prime minister who betrayed and double crossed the Eelam Tamils who were fighting for their just rights in their land does not warrant the aidign,abetting and the genocide and ethnic cleansing of an entire people. Yours and most Indians argument is similar to the Nazis and the anti Semites in Europe trying to justify the killing of the European Jews. They killed Jesus so we kill them . Does it not sound barbaric educated Malayalee?
lastly so what if Iam a Brahman. Is that an issue to you? Why should I be anti Tamil. I am a Tamil Brahman understood idiot that means my ethnicity is Tamil and my caste is Brahman. So why should I be against my own people mad creature? Why should the LTTE make me a war slave or any slave . To them Im just another Tamil. The Eelam Tamils largely belong to upper and middle caste and have never been anti Brahman. Their small Brahman population is very well integrated with the rest of the Tamils. in fact the LTTE had many Jaffna Brahmans as it members.

Rubbish Pirpakarn was niether a Catholic nor did he have any Malyalee bloo din him. He was from a pure Jaffna Tamil Hindu family,that did a lot of service to Saivite Hinduism the relgion of 85% of the Eelam Tamils. He was born a Hindu and he died as a Hindu . This was another rumour spread ny the RAW and the Sinhalese, just because he named his eldes son Charles Anthony afer a deaas LTTE leader.This shows how secular he was in his ideas. His staunchly Hindu family would have vehemently opposed this name, especially for their first grandson.

UNITED NATIONS PANEL FINDINGS

Tamils abused and murdered young children inside safety zone: UN

The Tigers also conscripted civilians of all ages, including children as young as 14 years old, and forced civilians to perform labor, blurring the distinction between the civilians and combatants. The rebels also shot dead civilians trying to escape the conflict zone and fired artillery from near the civilians provoking retaliatory fire, the report said.

Tamils hid behind children and murdered all trying to escape: UN panel

From February 2009 onwards, the LTTE started point-blank shooting of civilians who attempted to escape the conflict zone, significantly adding to the death toll in the final stages of the war. It also fired artillery in proximity to large groups of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and fired from, or stored military equipment near IDPs or civilian installations such as hospitals. Throughout the final stages of the war, the LTTE continued its policy of suicide attacks outside the conflict zone. Even though its ability to perpetrate such attacks was diminished compared to previous phases of the conflict, it perpetrated a number of attacks against civilians outside the conflict zone. The Panel’s determination of credible allegations against the LTTE associated with the final stages of the war reveal six core categories of potential serious violations: Ii) using civilians as a human buffer; (ii) killing civilians attempting to flee LTTE control; (iii) using military equipment in the proximity of civilians; (iv) forced recruitment of children; (v) forced labour; and (vi) killing of civilians through suicide attacks.

INDIAN ARMY REPORT: Tamils attacked from hospitals to MURDER INDIAN PEACEKEEPERS, lied about shelling

Hospitals have always figured prominently, in LTTE propaganda. There were two ways of doing it. One was to provoke actual attacks on hospitals and the other was to falsely claim that an attack had taken place. They even used it to turn Tamil Nadu opinion against the Indian Peace Keeping Force in the late 1980s. For example, an official statement of the Indian External Affairs Ministry issued on August 17, 1989, read as follows:“A group of LTTE militants under cover of darkness sneaked into a civilian hospital in a heavily populated area of Mannar, broke open the windows of the main hospital building and in utter disregard for the patients opened fire on an IPKF picket which was in the vicinity of the hospital for security and policing duties. The LTTE used rocket propelled grenades, rocket launchers and machine guns against the IPKF. But the IPKF soldiers in deference to the inmates of the hospital, did not use heavy weapons to retaliate. As a result, 24 IPKF soldiers were killed and a portion of the hospital along with a temple in the vicinity were damaged. The hospital was one of the biggest in the northern province and had 200 beds. It had 89 patients and a large number of staff at the time of the incident.”“The hospital was used with total disregard of the 89 patients within. Since the IPKF could not retaliate, they suffered heavy casualties. There is a clear political motive to disrupt the IPKF and to bring it into disrepute, to demoralize the civilian population and to jeopardize ongoing Indo-Sri Lankan talks.” This is just one example; there were many such incidents involving the IPKF. Since this was a tried and tested trick in the LTTE repertoire, they applied it to the final war as well. They started with the falsehood approach first. The saga of the Puthukudiirippu (PTK) hospital is a case in point. According to the US State Department report of October 2009, the Americans first began getting reports of the PTK hospital being shelled when the army was barely out of Killinochchi over 30 kilometers away. The US State Department report begins its section on “Harms to civilians and civilian objects” with a report of “heavy shelling” of the PTK hospital on January 2, 2009 which killed an unspecified number of civilians. On January 12, the PTK hospital was allegedly shelled again, injuring two patients. The next day, January 13 it was hit again killing one patient and injuring six others. Patients fled to take shelter from the shelling. On January 28, there had been heavy shelling within one kilometer of the PTK hospital where at least 21 people had been killed. The Puthukudiirippu hospital was not a major hospital with huge buildings like the Kandy or Jaffna base hospitals and these reported attacks alone should have been enough to completely flatten it and to make the staff and patients all flee into the jungles and refuse to come back. Because of these reported attacks, the Americans had taken satellite images of the PTK hospital on January 28, 2009, and to their surprise, the hospital “did not show visible signs of damage and appeared to be functioning”! What was remarkable is that despite repeated attacks of a magnitude that would have sent even the police or army scuttling into the jungles, the PTK hospital continued to function.

Long track record of Tamil lies and deceptions: US Defence Department

Tamils have long track record in lies & deception: USA

In 2002, the US Defence Department prepared a top secret assessment of both parties to the war in Sri Lanka at the invitation of the Ranil Wickremesinghe government. Excerpts from this report which was issued by Peter Rodman of the US Defence Dept, was published in The Island in 2007. This is what the US Defence Dept said in that report, about the LTTE’s propagandizing:“Prabhakaran uses deception as an intergral part of his modus operandi… Deceptive guidelines are given to LTTE cadres on how best to answer questions posed by the public and the media. Carefully worded guidelines are even provided to the Tamil diaspora over the internet on how best to respond to questions on the conflict posed by non-Sri Lankans. These guidelines are designed to portray LTTE cadres as freedom fighters pitted against a hostile and ruthless government.” This is why Western governments and international bodies like the UN have been hearing only about civilians and hospitals from their informants and almost nothing about the war between the SL armed forces and the LTTE. Except for the ‘UN hub’ incident discussed above and one ICRC report on shells falling into the Puthukudiirippu hospital following LTTE fire from the vicinity, all other information regarding attacks on civilians and hospitals in the Ban Ki-moon report has been obtained from LTTE controlled sources. This seriously compromises the integrity of the report.
