The actions of the LTTE diaspora have been escalating steadily, and one cannot help but think that the opponents of multiculturalism are right after all: if you don’t force your immigrants to integrate fully - again, “melting pot” - you’re just asking for trouble, such as foreign conflicts, and even wars, being imported from overseas, because the immigrants’ loyalties don’t lie with the host country that was generous enough to let them in - a privilege, and not a right - but, instead, with the old country. Columnist Christie Blatchford argues, correctly, that the Tamils “somehow breached the covenant, unwritten but understood, they have or ought to have made with their new country.”

They have lost the battle, and the war, in Sri Lanka, and it seems more than likely that they’re now trying to establish some sort of bridgehead in Toronto from which to continue their fighting.
