Note by writer. This article was in response to one that appeared in The Island (Sri Lanka) but the paper did NOT publish thus depriving me the 'Right of Reply'. This is in gross violation of media ethics. However, the Colombo Telegraph came to my rescue by publishing it in their popular website. My thanks to Colombo Telegraph. Hameed
Dr. V.J.M. De Silva in his article titled ‘The Israeli Palestinian Conflict Some Random Thoughts’ (The Island, 12 August, 2014) quotes the Bible in support of Israel. The one that Dr. Silva cites is often quoted by Jewish and Christian Zionists or Evangelical Christians to support the colonial conquest of Palestine by European Jews.  This so called promise to the Prophet Abraham (peace be on him) is found in the book of Genesis.

COMPARE ISRAEL WITH THE LTTE

This was in response to an editorial in the Sunday Times (SL) on August 2, 2014.

I was more than disappointed when I read your editorial in the Sunday Times (August 2, 2014) where you directly compare the Hamas with the now vanquished LTTE suggesting that Hamas too is a terrorist organisation as Israel and its backers in west, the so-called ‘international community’, want the whole world to believe.
It is open season on Muslims in Sri Lanka as in the whole world, so I will be treading on dangerous grounds when I say Hamas is not a terrorist organisation. I know also that useful idiots like ‘caliph’ Baghdadi of Islamic State notoriety contribute immensely to the sound bites of ‘Islamic terrorism’ that are ever present in the echo chambers of the world media.

ISRAEL IS THE VILLAIN OF THE PEACE

For Mr. Angelo Jansen and his ilk, (Ceylon Today Thursday 17 July, 2014) like the Israeli spin doctor Mark Regev and all Israeli worshipers, it seems like history of the Palestinians’ tragedy began last week when Hamas fired rockets into Israel in retaliation to Israeli atrocities in Occupied Palestine.
So for those of us who do not know, the Palestinian catastrophe began when about a hundred years ago Zionist Jews supported by white supremacists in Europe and America, who now call themselves the ‘international community, brought European Ashkenazi Jews to Palestine. At first the Palestinians Arabs, both Muslims and Christians, welcomed their ‘cousins’ with open arms in sympathy because they were fleeing the enormous and horrible  butchery committed on them (the Jews) by white European Christians.

How the West’s Media Twisted the Taliban Video

Hameed Abdul Karim

There was something strange, something amiss you might say, about Taliban’s video showing the release of U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl. And that was the superimposition of the words ‘Don’ Come Back to Afghanistan Again’ which appeared once while Sgt. Bergdahl was seated in the back of the pickup truck and then again when the Blackhawk gunship is in the air bringing to mind the words ‘Hi Yo Silver Away!’ the Lone Ranger utters as he gallops away into sunset after accomplishing his many missions for the good of mankind.

MODI - A MAGIC WAND?

Modi – A Magic Wand?

Hameed Abdul Karim

I was with an Indian HR guy a few days ago and quite naturally the topic of Narendra Modi’s massive victory crept into the conversation. This Indian Bhai was quite ecstatic in his praise for Modi. ‘Already the stock market has hit a new record high’ he gloated and I thought to myself ‘Right: the capitalists are already raking in the shekels while the poor are wondering whether they will get the toilets Modi promised them’. But courtesy prevented me from giving expression to my thoughts.

LIVING A LIE: RAPE AND THE BURNING OF MUSLIM SHOPS

The other day I came across an article that appeared in The Island titled ‘Buddha Sasana Ministry Invasion is a Rehearsal for Regime Change’ and was horrified to find the writer had casually justified the arson attack on a shop in Aluthgama owned by Muslims by claiming that this had happened because a young Sinhala Buddhist boy had been raped by the owner inside the shop.

Of Holocaust Memory Merchants and Selected History

Hameed Abdul Karim

‘We are the victims of the victims’ Edward Said

Kumari’s article titled ‘Holocaust memorial and other memorials’ (Ceylon Today Sat. 1 February, 2014)  poignantly reminds us all of how cruel Christian Europe was to the Jews  during World Word 11 and how the Nazis under Adolf Hitler committed one of the worst crimes against humanity ever recorded in history.
