JVP was not born after the LTTE was defeated, but I am sure you were born only yesterday to ask all these silly questions!

Better if protest of this nature or any other be taken to areas where public will not be disturb. Hamas was a creation of Israel to hit at Al Fatha of Yasir Arafat. There is doubt Hamas has a hand in this war by supporting Israel to bomb and Hamas is responsibly for all the deaths, injured and infrastructure

Great Job JVP. You have a great future. Anyone can have a U turn in their approach. Forget the past and work for a brighter future under your STAR CLASS Leader!

Wow seriously? Amazing, what about protesting about the crimes that take place here?

JVP is a terrorist friendly party with such colourful history behind them. They must hold this protest in Gaza not Colombo. Why do we have to suffer?

What about those who were killed by JVP and DJV during 88/89 and 90 period. They lead hundred thousands of innocent Sri Lankan youth to grave by fight with the government forces while their leaders hiding. Now the leaders have come out and demonstrating against Israel.

Jvp imagines that they could get the muslim votes by all there efforts of proper gander. They are worried about Gaza Yes even the Muslims are. But I see the Muslims gather every Friday and pray for there brothers. why couldnt JVP stand and protest for those who were killed in Aluthgama by the heartless BBS. why do people worry about the world when no one makes a hum when our own soil grown people are buried with no reasons. via DM Android App

This time JVP has got their priorities mixed up, Israil and palastines has been fighiting wars for the past many years,Whats that got to do with us locals, this is just an election propaganada...

JVP is protesting outside the US Embassy which seems appropriate. USA is the only nation stopping the UN accusing Israel of war crimes or even condemning their disproportionate attack on Gaza.

Dear All, No body is perfect in the world everybody do wrong. Even our children and parents and its human being. They all reformed now themselves at least they voice for sri lanka's corruption, racism problem and also for plalestine....they bring the truth to the light..so its a great job... BEFORE WE PIN POINT OTHERS WE SHOULD REALISE WHETHER OUR 10 FINGERS 100% OKAY TO BLAME OTHERS. WE SHOULD KNOW THIS FUNDAMENTAL AND TRY TO LIVE WITH IT. SO THERE WONT BE ANY PROBLEM IN THE COUNTY, JUST MIND IT
Anway what all JVP do we appreciate it and keep it up Mr.anura
