TGTE Senator Ramsey Clark is a Regular Representative of War Criminals
Transitional Government of Tamil Elam (TGTE) has appointed a group of Senators. Among them there is one American and one Sinhalese.
All the rest are Tamils from India, Canada and Sri Lanka. Former United States Attorney General, Ramsey Clark is the American. He played a major role in drafting and guiding the passage of two important US Laws: The Voting Rights Act of 1965 and The Civil Rights Act of 1968. He was the US Attorney General from 1967 to 1969.
A man is measured by the company he keeps
However, what interests most is his selective representation of well-known persons alleged of horrendous war crimes. Some of the people he defended include the following.
Nazi concentration camp commandant Karl Linnas
Nazi War criminal Jack Reimer
Liberian political figure Charles G. Taylor
Elizaphan Ntakirutimana, a leader in the Rwandan genocide
Palestine Liberation Organization leaders in a lawsuit brought by the family of Leon Klinghoffer, the vacationer murdered during the hijacking of the Achille Lauro.
Radovan Karadžić, former Bosnian Serb politician, accused war criminal
Slobodan Milošević, former President of Serbia and of FR Yugoslavia, accused war criminal
Saddam Hussein, former president of Iraq and convicted of genocide
He represented the LTTE in 1998 in USA in a case against USA banning LTTE as a terrorist organization.

His association with TGTE, the remnant of the LTTE terrorist organization raises many questions. Representing Nazi war criminals who committed untold atrocities to Jews, defending PLO over the deliberate killing of Jews and very close links and regular meetings with Hamas leaders indicate his deep rooted resentment against Jews. It also indicates his selective hatred against some ethnic groups for no fault of theirs. He is the only lawyer in history who represented or attempted to represent such a vast array of war criminals. It is no surprise he is now representing TGTE war criminals.
Karunyan Arulanantham, a medical practitioner in Lancaster, California, USA, has been the single largest financier of the LTTE. His money played a key role in getting Ramsey Clark into the LTTE camp.
Strategic reasons for Ramsey Clark’s appointment
TGTE has a series of strategic reasons for his appointment to its sham Senate. After the military defeat, TGTE/LTTE is following a different approach. It is very similar to the Palestinian approach.
Further information on this can be read in the following article.
This staged process is what Tamil separatists follow today. It is perfectly legal in the countries they operate and they have huge international support. Ramsey Clark is very close to Hamas leadership and has been a very active sympathizer of the Palestinian cause. It is this expertise TGTE is tapping into.
Following the Palestinian approach also includes relinking with Palestinian terrorist organizations including suicide bombers.
Facing the threat
Downplaying the new TGTE/LTTE threat is most damaging. Obviously TGTE cannot revive the LTTE soon; nor can it win its demand for a Tamil-only nation. However, with a concerted approach by following a proven tactic that worked elsewhere in the world Tamil separatists can certainly bridge the gap between where they are now and where they want to be.
There is little or nothing Sri Lanka can do to stop or hinder these global separatist movements. All the ‘senators’ live outside Sri Lanka. Their countries of residency include USA, Australia, Canada and India. None of these countries is expected to take any action against them. Interestingly, TGTE has chosen their “senators” from highly influential countries to their cause.
The only way to defeat this globalized legal-terrorist-propaganda mafia is to disrupt the possibility of a mono ethic Tamil only nation in the island. All Tamil majority provinces must be converted to areas of Tamil minority. State sponsored initiatives to allow non-Tamil settlements in these areas is the only way this can be achieved. Withdrawing the army from the north is a sure sign of weakness that will be exploited by the TGTE-LTTE axis.
With a very strong defender of war criminals in their arsenal, TGTE/LTTE will not hesitate to re-launch their war crimes of 34 years from 1975 to 2009. Preemptive action must be taken to frustrate all possibilities of a two state solution in the island. The solution lies within the island nation.
