Condemnation of the attack on Gaza Hospital by those who bombed Puthukkudiyiruppu Hospital is hypocrisy! – M.A. Sumanthiran, MP #Gazabombing #SriLanka #WarCrimes… via @LankaBrief – by Sunanda Deshapriya

‘Hard to disagree with.Alan Keenan


‘That is the way hypocrites hide their sins. Gaza experience is the open global version of 2009 war between LTTE and the government forces. Sumanthiran is the parallel of Palestinian politicians who lack power over Hamas’ . Gaja Param


The postings were based on Mr Sumanthiran’s speech in Parliament  and published by Sri Lanka Brief, under the heading ‘Condemnation of the attack on Gaza hospital by those who bombed Puthukkudiyiruppu hospital is hypocrisy! – M.A. Sumanthiran, MP


In the case of global issues, we lack direct experience. Hence, like the blind men who described the elephant, we describe global conflicts as per our own experiences in our home areas. They would all be true, but not be the global experience.


In Chapter 10 of my book, Different Logics for example, I have shared as follows:



Karma is an Absolute power. Positive karma is virtuous and negative karma is demonic. We experienced the latter as Corona virus, which in previous birth was the ‘plague’ in Silk Road. I am not a medical expert. But I have learnt through experience that when we take ‘what happened’ and view it through our belief, we identify with the ‘fact’ we need…….’

Crimea and the Russo-Ukrainian War

1.  The origin of the Black Death is disputed. The pandemic originated either in Central Asia or East Asia but its first definitive appearance was in Crimea in 1347.

2.  Xi originally announced the strategy as the "Silk Road Economic Belt" during an official visit to Kazakhstan in September 2013

3.  In February and March 2014Russia invaded and subsequently annexed the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine. This event took place in the aftermath of the Revolution of Dignity and is part of the wider Russo-Ukrainian War…….Once we lose control of an issue, it becomes Universal – beyond time and place. Making these connections would not only strengthen our mind, but also ensure that we would not disturb heritages in our own local environments




Mr Sumanthiran states:

Now, when people suffer through violence, it is almost immaterial as to who is responsible for that. Well, it is important to identify the perpetrators, but the point that I’m making is, it  is important, it is urgent, first to bring that suffering to an end; to bring that fighting to an end; to call for a ceasefire.’


As per my intelligence of the LTTE, the ceasefire period would be used by both sides to prepare for the next attack.


In Mahabharatham, the solution was preached by Lord Krishna at the beginning of the armed war. Lord Krishna did not call for a ceasefire. Lord Krishna urged for Arjuna to fight to preserve Dharma/Righteousness. All of us with war pain, have the opportunity to cure ourselves by experiencing the pain again and thanking all those who helped us cure ourselves. Such cured minds are the vaccines that prevent wars. The solution is hidden in the pain. Those who are not part of the causal force of the war, but experience the pain, experience the cure.
