Appu has proof that Christians have infiltrated Temple Trees

This is a real crisis!

Unethical conversions are taking place at the highest level. Lalith Kottelawela is working from jail to make sure that Christians have infiltrated Temple Trees.

The proof was in the news report in the Daily Mirror and BBC (so it must be true) that:
The authorities in Sri Lanka have arrested a popular astrologer who predicted that the president will be ejected from office, police say.
Police told the AP news agency that Mr Bandara told an opposition meeting that the prime minister would take over as president on 9 September and the opposition leader would become prime minister.
He was arrested on Wednesday night to investigate the basis of his prediction, police spokesman Ranjith Gunasekera said.

Obviously, they are having secret bible reading and prayer meetings at Temple Trees. The Bible says the penalty for false prophecy, according to the biblical context, is capital punishment (Deuteronomy 13 verse5).

"That prophet or dreamer must be put to death, because he preached rebellion against the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt and redeemed you from the land of slavery; he has tried to turn you from the way the LORD your God commanded you to follow. You must purge the evil from among you."

Can somebody please do something about this travesty? Why do they have to come and ruin it for us... Christians can go and do anything they want in USA, UK, Australia and Norway. Ah, ah! Appu is sure these unethical conversions must be Norwegian funded.... and Ranil Wickramasinghe's Uncle was also a Christian Bishop and this Astrologer is connected to the UNP. Bingo! Now it all comes together.

Can somebody please give me Omalpe's mobile number? I need to alert him.

Barefoot sarong owners should stop barking at the moon

The Lankan blogosphere is rife with the stereotypical barefoot sarong owning 'middle class sri lankans' sounding more and more like card carrying members of Wimal Weerawansa's Patriotic National Movement.

"The West is attacking Sri Lanka, instead of helping" they say, USA and UK are "sympathizing with terrorists" apparently or "Interfering with our war on terrorism" and showing "double standards"... and on and on they go.

Enough with the frothy growls people. Calm down, take a deep breath and think about what you're defending. Let Gota borrow a page from the Mugabe handbook on media relations - he is cementing the Rajapakse hand on the nation. Thats a good reason for him - Whats your motive?

When the government proclaims that not a "single civillian was killed by shelling" that isn't dishonesty - its an attempt to equate Tamils and Tigers. This wasn't a war to liberate the Tamils from the LTTE, it was a war to liberate the Sinhalese from the LTTE. I agree that it was a war that had to be fought and the LTTE had to be destroyed but it had to be done with some concern for civilian casualties (instead, the government exhibited no concern and underscored their intentions by keeping the World's media out).

When the USA and UK invaded Iraq, the World's media was "embedded" and they were able to report on what happened, albeit a Western view. However, when the Iraqi national archives were looted by some US Troops the Western media didn't hide it - it was headline news and that helped stem the tide of looting and excesses. The world's media has played an invaluable role in checking abuses like Abu Gh'b and Gitmo. Those countries have processes that deal with such abuses and more often than not, the outcome is right and not wrong.

Contrast that with Sri Lanka's history of presidential commissions that have never ever held anybody accountable for any excess.

Besides, the war against the LTTE couldn't have been won if the UK, EU and the USA didn't outlaw the LTTE and shut down their lethal networks. Under the circumstances, they have a right to question the prosecution of Sri Lanka's war.

What Sri Lanka doesn't need at this time is for the "intelligentsia" to start barking at the moon, like the rest of the pack of rabid dogs that pose off as our leaders & elders.

We all know that LTTE/Prabhakaran was the symptom and not the problem. If you have that level of awareness, then ignorance is not your refuge for your "us against the World" attitude.

Lets get real people. If we want the World to help us rebuild, then we need to be more mature.

Sri Lanka is her biggest enemy and every time we bark at the moon, we're sapping ourselves of the energy and will to look at our own reflection in the water.

Sri Lanka can be better than that! We can be better than that!

A tale of two Kabarayagoyas by the Diyawanna Oya

Two Kabaragoyas were basking on the side of Diyawanna Oya

The smaller Kabaraya turned to the bigger Kabaraya and said, "I can't understand how you can be so much bigger than me. We're the same age, we were the same size as kids. I just don't get it.

"Well", said the big Kabaraya, "what have you been eating?"
"Politicians, same as you," replied the small Kabaraya.
"Hmm. Well, where do you catch them?"
"Down the other side of the lake near the parking lot by the Parliament.
"Same here. Hmm.. How do you catch them?
"Well, I crawl up under one of their Pajeros and wait for one to unlock the car door.
Then I jump out, grab them by the leg, shake the shit out of them and eat em!

"Ah!" says the big Kabaraya,

"I think I see your problem.
You're not getting any real nourishment.
See, by the time you finish shaking the shit out of a Politician, there's nothing left but an arsehole wrapped in white polyester."

Appu's advice to the Tamils

Appu's advice to the Tamils is to try something different.

You tried the Gandhian approach and got clubbed by the police from Galle Face to Jaffna esplanade.

You tried the Prabhakaran approach and met violence with violence and whilst it might have seemed a bit like David and Goliath for awhile, Goliath won. Surprised? Don't be. It was inevitable. Prabhakaran just didn't "know when to hold 'em and know when to fold 'em."

In the end, what Rajapakse Inc. has done to the Tamils made JR's riots from '58 to '83 seem like walks in the park. Sad, but true. Worse, this time nobody really cares. Next week, the news will be about civillians being killed in Afghanistan.

However, there is a way forward to real peace and prosperity. One that comes easily to the stereotypical Tamil.

the economy!
the economy!
the economy!

If Mao's China can become the World's healthiest economy and Ho Chi Min's Vietnam can be a true leaping Tiger, then can your lot be far behind?

Invest in your people, your lands, your future. You work wonders for your employers in other parts of the World, now do it for yourselves.

To do that however, you need to walk away from the bitterness that you are entitled to feel.

Entitlement is debilitating - ask the Sinhalese University student who drinks from that poisoned chalice...

...but thats a different rant that Appu will get to one day soon.
