The exodus of Tamils from the so called “safe zone” is similar to that what was seen in Rwanda about 15 years ago, when Tutsis faced genocide in the hands of Hutus.
Sinhala soldiers are on a genocidal spree. They have murdered about 1000 Tamil civilians and injured about 2500 by breaching into the “safe zone”.
In Sri Lanka(SL), a Tamil is always held as a hostage by the Sinhala state. IDP’s are held as hostages in military concentration camps. Others face hostage taking, mostly daily, by the Sinhala soldiers in military check points.

But, Mahinda Rajapakse explained the mass exodus of Tamil civilians from the unsafe “safe zone”, because of military firing, as “the largest ever hostage rescue mission in history”. Tamil civilian killing is being covered up and Sinhala ego is being boosted by that unreal utterance.
Adolf Hitler also similarly engaged in similar utterances during genocide of Jews. The purpose is definitely to blame others, hoodwink the International community and carry on with the genocide. SL appears to be succeeding in its trickery.
The truth of what happened in the “safe zone” could be discovered easily from spy satelite photos in the area as done in Bosnia.
The UN should start to bring Rajapakse and other war criminals to the war crimes court in the Hague for the UN to justify its existence.
Rwanda is past. Sri Lanka is present. But the UN and the International Community are doing nothing whatsoever to rectify even happenings in the present.
Surely, Tamil Eelam is inevitable.
