Why Would They Chose to Attack Sri Lanka?

Why would they chose to attack Sri Lanka, a small and relatively insignificant island nation? The immediate thought I had is ‘what has Sri Lanka done to annoy [someone]?

The answer was not hard to find, just look at the Wikipedia page entitled “Palestine–Sri Lanka relations”: “Relations between Palestine and Sri Lanka started in 1975 when the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) opened up an embassy in Colombo. After the Palestinian Declaration of Independence on 15 November 1988,the Republic of Sri Lanka and the Republic of Maldives were among few of the first countries in the world to recognize the State of Palestine.[1][2] Left wing government lead by Sirimavo Bandaranaike during the 1970s closed down the Israel embassy in support of the Palestinian cause.”

“Sri Lanka currently supports the two state solution for the conflict. In 2014 Sri Lanka donated 130 million rupees to Palestine as humanitarian aid. During the UN speech of president Maithripala Sirisena he expressed support for the liberation struggle of the Palestinian people and urged the United Nations and all Member States to approach the Palestinian issue in a more humane manner taking the inhumane conditions they face into consideration. Sri Lanka has being voting in support of Palestine in almost every resolution brought to the UN.”

“Sri Lanka also strongly opposed the US President Donald Trumps decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in the UN, Sri Lanka Palestine Parliamentary Friendship Association (SLPPFA) held a massive rally lead by the Minister for health and nutrition of Sri Lanka in support of Palestine during the issue. Sri Lankan president and the chairperson of the centre-left Sri Lanka Freedom Party,Maithripala Sirisena also assured that Sri Lanka is committed to stand by the struggle for independence of the Palestinian people, president also gifted a plot of land for Palestine in Colombo to open up a new embassy.”

So there you have it – Sri Lanka has long been one of the strongest supporters of the Palestinian cause, therefore we need look no further for an explanation as to why she was attacked and know who was behind it – the criminal apartheid state of Israel. Ian
