EU Court ruling lifting restrictions on LTTE: Ascendancy of Sinhala nationalism inevitable with the resurgence of LTTE

The LTTE was a despicable oraganisation headed by a despicable apology of a man. The misnomer that they were freedom fighters sullies the good name of freedom fighters the world has known. Genuine freedom fighters did not kill innocent men, women and children, the LTTE did. Freedom fighter did not kill anyone who opposed them. Genuine freedom fighters did not kill their own people and their own politicians. The LTTE did all of this and more.

Letter from America: Death of a public intellectual - Ali Mazrui

Professor Ali Al-Amin Mazrui died last week on 13 October 2014, at Binghamton, New York, in the United States after being ill for several months. He was 81. I first learned about this great scholar when I was preparing a talk on Africa in the early 1980s in California. My search on the topic took me to the university library where I found some two dozen books on Africa written by this renowned Kenyan academic. He was simply the best authority on Africa, consulted by heads of states and governments, international media and research institutions for political strategies and alternative thoughts.
