“By way of deception, thou shall wage war” - Mossad motto:
The article in your Daily News on 23 August 2012 should surprise all readers of your grand old newspaper because it has (or had) an irrefutable reputation as a champion of Third World causes. But of late there has been suspicion that you have moved from that much lauded role and have ganged up with those who wish to dominate developing nations by one trick or another. Today’s article gives an indication of your shift.
Whilst all countries in the world, especially those in the Non Aligned Movement (NAM), support the just cause of the Palestinians, Sri Lanka, it seems, has moved closer to the Israelis (like India) for reasons that perplex those of us who believe that Sri Lanka is an ardent supporter of the Palestinians. Virtually the entire world voted for the inclusion of Palestine in UNESCO with the obvious exception of the United States of America, which as you know will do Israel’s bidding at any time even if it’s against the interests of the US, as has been the case more often than not.
