The delegates of the UNHRC session will be taken around the North and shown development projects including schools and roads. They will be shown the concrete bunkers and weapons caches of the LTTE.

Only then will they appreciate the level of barbarity the whole country was faced with under the LTTE Northern Rule.

When they are dropped off at the airport, they will be reminded of the LTTE attack that wiped out a big chunk of Airlanka's fleet, and also the tourists who were targetted in that attack who were saved by the selfless courageous airline staff who put themselves in danger to protect foreign families with their young children.

The delgates will leave Sri lanka with a very different opinion than the one they arrived with.

Say what you like, but other tha a few Idiots and the Indians most people are not fooled. TheLTTE may have been nasty but the Sinhalese more nasty and stating the lame stupid excuse that because the LTTE was cruel it gives the Sinhalese Sri Lankan government the right to be more evil and to kill more than 300000 innocent Tamil civilians and to commiut genocide and ethnic cleansing on them does not hold.
Compared to what th eSinhalese did and are stil doing what the LTTE did was childs play. NO wmany people are nostalgically referring to the LTTE era as the good days, when Tamils lived in safety and dignity in their.No one not even the Sinhalese can accuse the LTTE of raping and looting.
THe LTTE was born out of Sinhalese cruelty. I recently met a Jaffna Tamil who has a Sinhalese wife and whose brother in law is very high up in the Sri Lankan army. He stated that he felt so sad visiting the north and east to see the Tamils being treated as slaves. They have beocme voiceless in their own land with everything being plundered from them. Their lands homes farms and ditributed to Sihalese from the south. If you turn everywhere HIndu temples are deliberately being destroyed and BUddhist palces of worship being built. If these delegates are not able to see this they maust be deaf and dumb,with an agenda.

So when the LTTE set up a defacto govt in the North. When they killed Tamil politicians and Tamil scholars. When they dismantled the infrastucture to build bunkers and armoured vehicles - these were the glory days?

When they LTTE expelled all Sinhalese and Muslims from the North. When they set up roadblcks stopping Tamil from visiting the South and non-Tamils from visiting the North. When the old and infirm were not allowed to go to Colombo hospitals to be treated - these were the glory days?

When the LTTE kidnapped children from their crying mothers. When they forced young girls to detonate themselves in public places. When they harrassed Tamils who lived abroad for hard earned money to fund terrorism - these were the glory days?

This is why Tamils are not worthy or capable of Self-Rule. ow long would it take before the LTTE took control of the Tamils again. Tamils have proved that they are unable to keep the LTTE at bay.

You cannot deny that the LTTE will take over again. They are too powerful for the Tamils to supress. They have shown the world that Tamils will bend to LTTE whims and do their bidding.

The LTTE was able to oppress Tamils worse than the Sinhalese ever have. Difference is that Tamils were happy to be oppressed by the LTTE.

That is why Tamil will never have a homeland on Sri Lankan soil. We will never allow the LTTE to get a foothold on the island ever again

They didn't live in Eelam because Eelam has never existed. Eelam has never ever been mentioned on any old or ancient map. These Sinhala families lived in North Sri Lanka.

All Sri Lankans have the right to live anywhere on the island.

Tamils live in the South so why shouldn't Sinhalese live in the North?

Tamils have been living all parts in Ceylon even before Sinhala ancestors arriving in the Island.But Sinhalese immigrated in south parts of the Island from Orissa.Tamils never settled by government sponsored plan. Tamils voluntarily decided their living area..but Sinhalese immigrated by successive Sinhala govt. into Tamil Eelam for change the demographic.

Origins of ethnic groups & early history
Sri Lanka was populated from India and both races, the Sinhalese and Tamils, are of Indian origin. Scholars of international accepted texts by Stroudt and Bailey have concluded that the Sinhalese and the Tamils have been in the island for at least 2,000 years, and it is not known with certainty which ethnic group arrived first.
The present day Sinhalese however, choose to believe a legend and what is more, teach it to their children, that a Bengali Prince, Vijaya, arrived in Ceylon in 548 B.C. and founded their ethnic group. They base these beliefs on the 'Mahavamsa' and fail to realise that this so­called historical text was written by a Buddhist monk whose perceptions of Sri Lanka were probably no different from those of his present day counterparts. The Tamils point to equally dubious evidence that a South Indian Dravidian people were already there when Vijaya arrived.
There is evidence that there were civilised people in the country when Vijaya arrived but it is not known whether they were Dravidian Tamils from South India.
There is indisputable evidence that over the centuries, Sinhalese kings and nobles went across to southern India for their brides. Between the thirteenth and eighteenth centuries this immigration from South India was particularly marked. These immigrants, though Dravidian (South Indian} in origin, adopted the customs of the Sinhalese people and became 'Sinhalised'.
Referring to the origins of the races, Stroudt speaks of the Sinhalese as a "composite people which include, in addition to the Aryan speaking North Indian, admixtures from Dravidians of the south of India". Gananath Obeysekera, an outstanding Sinhalese anthropologist has this to say:
"The Sinhalese identity nowadays is predicted on the view that since they speak an Indo­European language, they are of North Indian origin whereas the Dravidian­speaking Tamils are from the South. The historical reality however is totally different. Except perhaps for the oldest stratum of settlers prior to 200 B.C., almost all subsequent settlers in Sri Lanka came from South India, mostly from Tamil Nadu, Orissa and Kerala and quickly became Sinhalised. In fact, some of the most vociferous anti­Tamil castes among the Sinhalese were post fifteenth­century migrants from South India".
These historical facts are at variance with what the present day Patriots', believe. They preach their chauvinist gospel out of ignorance or to justify their chauvinism. Claiming that their ancestors arrived first, the Sinhalese feel that they own the island and have a right to make their language the sole official language of their country and their religion, Buddhism, the official religion. the Tamils believe equally strongly that they have been in the country for just as long (or longer), and that they should have equal rights in the country which is their home and that their language (Tamil) should have the same status as the language of the Sinhalese (Sinhala).

What is remarkable about all this nonsense as to which ethnic group arrived first is that supposedly sensible people should argue and indeed fight, about something that happened over 2,000 years ago, and should allow this to disrupt the country and threaten each others existence.
Because of the proximity of Sri Lanka to India, over the centuries there were invasions from India and at various times South Indian Tamil kings ruled the country. This historical fact of repeated South Indian invasion in ancient times is part of the basis for the current phobia among the Sinhalese of being overrun by India and in particular South India (Tamil Nadu), with its 50 million people who speak Tamil.
After centuries of fighting and a divided country, in 164 B.C. a young Sinhalese king, Dutugemunu, defeated the ageing Tamil king Elara and unified the country (for a period). The Sinhalese notion of an all island sovereignty goes back to this event which is magnified out of all proportion by the Sinhalese and is one reason why there is so much opposition to the current Tamil cry for a separate State in the North.

Funny that the writer says there is no proof that Wijaya came to Sri Lanka. He is obvuiously not a real writer or researcher. All he had to do was look at ancient Indian texts which also tell the story of Wijaya being banished from India and exiled to Sri lanka.
