    Jude, I wonder why you are ignoring the thousands of innocent Sinhalese people killed by these murderous LTTE suicide bombers over the past 26 years. What about the Tamil politicians also killed by the LTTE?
    The Sri Lanka government has given the world a salutary lesson in overcoming this evil in their midst. Can you tell me how many people benefited from living under the LTTE gun? More to the point can you single out one Tamil person who was willing to go and live in an Eelam under the murderous Prabhakaran?
    Most of the Tamils overseas are upset that they now cannot use this conflict to get their kith and kin to leave Sri Lanka for greener pastures.
    The “discrimination” Tamils loudly complain of also affected the Muslims, the Burghers and even the English-speaking Sinhalese. There were no laws specifically targeted towards the Tamils. From the time of Independence, Tamils have been agitating to maintain the unfair advantage they enjoyed under the British by fair means and foul.
