Tamil Diaspora's New Umbrella - The Global Tamil Forum (GTF)

Fails to Hide the Tigers' Stripes

(By: Mahinda Gunasekera)
The Tamil Diaspora which funded the brutal terrorist movement called the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) also known as the Tamil Tigers, has regularly changed its disguise through a simple metamorphosis involving a name change and re-arranging the deck with new faces to hide their links to the designated terror group. After the military action taken by the Sri Lankan forces ended in May 2009 with the killing of the Tiger Supremo, Velupillai Prabhakaran and his lieutenants on the banks of the Nanthikadal Lagoon on the northeast coast, the carefully laid out plans of foisting a Tamil state on Sri Lankan soil with western support simply vanished like a bad dream that partially disturbed the nation which woke up to face the challenge head on. The Tamil Diaspora's plans to carve out a separate state covering one-third of the land area spread over two-thirds of the coast extending from the northwest to the southeast of the island for less than half the total Tamils counting less than 4 percent resident in the region, by force of arms, went up in smoke along with the massive stockpile of weapons they had procured for the purpose and smuggled into the jungle hideout of the Tiger terror machine in the Vanni.
