It would have been touching, if not for the fact that it was so totally hypocritical, to see the US being so concerned about the Muslim people in Grandpass in Sri Lanka.
For a country that has unconditionally encouraged Israel atrocities against all the Muslim Arab nations, bombed Iraq mercilessly and killed about a million Muslims there, and not even allowed the burial of the body of the Boston bomber, in US soil, this is really rich!
The US is a country that is presently attacking and humiliating the Muslim people in US soil and the harassment that overseas Muslims experience at US airports is legendary.
In the US, all Muslims are guilty, until proven innocent. In that background, the US had better put its own house in order and start to treat Muslims better before trying to preach to a country like Sri Lanka which treats Muslims with deep respect and friendship.
