This is a ploy by the Malay Mohammedans to get the Atlanticists on their side instead of addressing the root causes of Tamil Hindu disaffection in Malaysia. It's highly unlikely that the LTTE with it's christist leadership would get involved in a Hindu cause. If there is a single meritorious case anywhere in the world of poverty and illiteracy justifying taking up arms - this is it. And the Mohammedans having perpetrated the 9/11 atrocity have reason to wet their pants in trepidation. The Petronas Towers in Malaysia are now the world's tallest skyscraper and the LTTE does have a military aviation wing, albeit with micro-light aircraft, that has been involved in suicide bombings in Sri Lanka lately!!
Therefore, this is the right time for the Malay supremacists to ameliorate the root causes of the "Ethnic Indian" disenchantment.
