We treat you with contempt

Sri Lanka’s foreign minister, Rohitha Bogollagama, has a message to the world:

Sri Lanka will no doubt enter the annals of history as a classic textbook example of a nation that successfully prevailed over the scourge of terrorism, while tenaciously upholding the cherished values of democracy and human rights.

He sounds as deluded as an Israeli minister, oblivious and clearly hurt by the fact that the civilised world regards his country’s “war on terror” as a crime against humanity.
