(Article: Buddhists Behaving Badly)
Dr. Tshang (6 Aug. 2012)
Buddhism? Nationalism is a form of idolatry. All religions oppose violent zealots - it is a kind of blind drive!! One can be proud of one's culture, country etc but on another level, taking this as a racist ideological stance, or supremacist view point - as Hitler in his madness did - then of course, it is problematic. Hitler got the National Church to manipulate the text of the bible to fit the insane ideological context.
Neither Buddha, nor Jesus, or any one else for that matter will not back such insanity.

Since the time of signing the ceasefire agreement till the defeat of the LTTE military power everything was under control. In 2006 the nasty Hindu Delhi government started to take revenge on the LTTE leadership. UK got dragged and Tony Blair's Labour government joined in carrying out the genocide. USA was almost forced to support the genocide.
LTTE's de-facto state should have been accepted by the big powers. Then there would have been two great states, one for the Sinhala Budhists and Eelam for the Tamils, their birth right. Sonia's Congress influenced by the South Block Kerala VVIPS did the damage.
Now the world knows and by justifications and reasoning the Political party of the LTTE, the People Front of Liberation Tigers(PFLT-UK) will lead the Tamils towards the establishment of the Tamil natio, Eelam. All the progressive forces and fair nations will support the birth of Eelam.
