This is sickening but utterly unsurprising. Israel and Sri Lanka both see the world in the same way; with a complete disregard for civilians in the “war on terror’. Two terror states deserve each other:
Israel President Shimon Peres reiterated that his government was willing to assist Sri Lanka in any area of concern as needed in the future, especially covering the area of Defence Cooperation.
He made this remark when former Chief of Defence Staff Air Chief Marshal (Retd.) Donald Perera presented Letters of Credence as the Ambassador of Sri Lanka to Israel President Shimon Peres, at the Office of the President in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, recently.
In a statement the Sri Lankan Mission in Jerusalem said the Ambassador had a brief discussion with President Peres and thanked the President and conveyed the Best Wishes and Greetings from President Mahinda Rajapaksa and briefed on the present situation in Sri Lanka.
President Peres expressed his views that President Rajapaksa was a very popular leader in the world and was confident that he would be very much on top and win the 2010 Presidential Election. He praised the Sri Lankan President for giving the leadership to complete the issue of terrorism in Sri Lanka.
