Watch Out. The Sinha-Le Campaign gathers Momentum

SinhaLe SINHALE BADGE …. OR “The island nation of SINHALE” as it was phrased in the email circular I received

These images are just what the Tamil extremists wanted… and want. So, as indicated in other posts, we see the two poles stirring each other. It would seem to be a repetition of  a process some of us witnessed in the late 1950s and thereafter. Or is it? There are, surely, some differences? ….even frightening differences? I invite readers to present their thoughts on this point. Michael Roberts

ANOTHER ITEM:  It is time to restore Sinhale, the historical name of our motherland. Some countries previously were under the colonial rule have alreadyrestored to their original names.
