Selective genocidal rape in arsenal of ‘international community’ imperialism

[TamilNet, Friday, 13 June 2014, 01:59 GMT]
The so-called Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict is a clear demonstration on the acceptance of genocidal rape as a weapon in selective cases, where the deployment of it through agent States is needed for imperialistic engineering. Omission is more powerful than inclusion in sending messages. If the Summit has risked its credibility by the omission of the ‘very special case Sri Lanka’ that always relished in seeing Tamils naked, then the global importance of the ‘Sri Lanka paradigm’ to today’s ‘international community imperialism’ has to be understood without any doubt. While William Hague and Angelina Jolie are just managers of the main show, the imperialism behind them was ingenious in choreographing sideshows too, to diffuse any uprising.

The greatest insult to Eezham Tamils is the relegation of their issue from the main stage to Canadian High Commissioner’s residence and to the ‘side events’ of the summit.

There are also the crumbs thrown at UK Tamils that Hague would consider asylum cases of rape-torture victims.

As usual, those who have been mobilised for sideshow performances to imperialism would eulogise that even the crumbs and attention they had ‘achieved’ wouldn’t have come otherwise.

The main agenda of the Summit was kept a secret to UK Tamil public while sideshow performers were mobilised, informed circles say.

The UK Tamils could have performed the main show to the world, had they mobilised and demonstrated in strength against such a Summit of gross injustice. They have the capacity, which they had shown during the war. But, what ‘counterinsurgency’ imperialism, operated in which ways and infiltrated through what genre of polity and personalities have hijacked away the spirit and strength of mobilisation, has to be carefully perused by the UK Tamils.

Tamils have to recollect the International Crisis Group (ICG) differentiating national questions for independence: which ones will be recognized, which ones will be watched and which ones will not be recognized. The Eezham Tamil question was listed in their last category.

It is this policy outline that is reflected in the omission of ‘Sri Lanka’ from the main agenda of the Summit and in the eyewash of sideshow orchestrations.

Even after repeated and explicit acts by a bloc that masquerade in the name ‘International Community’, if the fact has not been dawn on Tamils that where precisely their struggle has to be addressed, then there must be really something wrong with them and their ‘civilisation’.

Addressing the struggle at the UK Establishment, which is the idea-setting and show-managing member of the bloc, and getting the answer from it, is more crucial than demonstrating against Rajapaksa in London.
