We are compelled to come to the conclusion that these organizations are fostering terrorism so that they can sell arms and ammunition to all parties.
Palestinians has been following the Sri Lanka’s struggle against the terrorist group called LTTE who were trying the divide this small friendly country on ethnic grounds with the help of some western countries who were interested in the oil deposits in Sri Lanka. We are also aware that international arms and drug traffickers lost their sources of income with the defeat of this terrorist group LTTE.
Now Sri Lanka is developing its infrastructure facilities and there is a steady flow of tourists to Sri Lanka. We are happy to note that President Mahinda Rajapaksa who is a close friend of Palestine was elected as President for a second term with a majority vote of 1.8 million.
Palestine is one country that is highly concerned about the wellbeing of Sri Lanka and is worried about the unwanted interventions of the West to bring back the terrorists and harass Sri Lanka with unfounded allegations of human rights violations etc. Palestinians strongly feel that West and many international organizations dominated by West are going beyond their limits with no respect or regard for the sovereignty of Sri Lanka or its right to defend its territory.
West and its friendly organizations have failed to realize that Sri Lanka is no more a colony of any former colonial master. That is past history and no more valid. In this regard we in Palestine question the double standards practiced by West and other international organizations when it comes to Palestine. When Israel bombed Gaza for 22 days, killing over 1500 Palestinians including over 500 children and injuring thousands, these compassionate world leaders failed to intervene in spite of the fact that Palestinians are no match for the Israeli army.
Mr. Ban Ki Moon who is now dictating terms to Sri Lanka visited Gaza and saw with his own eyes the destruction caused to life and property but he has in fact failed to take any action against Israel or to re-build Gaza in spite of the fact that Goldstone Report clearly shows all what happened.
