The real Srebrenica Genocide

[NOTE: About 18 months ago Nathan Pearlstein, Robert Peter North and Felix Quigley began educating Israpundit readers as to the truth about the fighting in Serbia. As a result we came to understand that the US was at fault and the Serbs were innocent.]

Introduction by Nathan Pearlstein

Why are the mainstream Western media, the US administrations under George W. Bush and Bill Clinton as well as the governments of NATO and the EU covering up this monumental crime against humanity?

Why are the Serbs – whom apart from the Jews were the major victims of the Holocaust during World War 2 - being cast as the perpetrators of genocide while the real perpetrators of genocide – the Islamofascists loyal to Alija Izetbegovic – are being cast by the corporate media, the US, NATO and EU governments as “the victims”?

Why was Naser Oric – the Islamofascist commander of Srebrenica and perpetrator of a massive genocide against Serbian men, women and children in Srebrenica from 1992 to 1995 – given only a 2 year sentence for this monumental crime against humanity and allowed to walk free from NATO’s Scheveningen ICTY prison: the former Nazi SS dungeon for patriotic Dutch resistance fighters against the Germans during World War 2 in The Hague, Holland?

Our dear friend and colleague at 4International, Peter Robert North, has graciously allowed us to reproduce in full his outstanding work here on what really happened in Srebrenica and Gorazde from 1992 to 1995. A revelation of truth which is of enormous historical significance and importance to all good people across the globe but especially for all patriotic Jewish people in Israel and the diaspora.

The ITN/Guardian Trnopolje & Omarska “Death Camp” Hoax

The ITN/Guardian Trnopolje & Omarska ”Death Camp”Hoax: The Lies of the British Guardian & ITN Exposed

By 4International writers: Joshua Rosenberg, Nathan Pearlstein, Max Rosenthal & Peter Robert North

The late Islamofascist Bosnian leader, Alija Izetbegovic, former illegitimate “president” of Bosnia Herzegovina, illegal ursuper of power in 1990 from the duly elected Bosnian muslim leader, Mr.Fikret Abdic, is the one behind the Bosnian “death camp” fraud.

Izetbegovic admitted it to former UNMIK head Bernard Kouchner on his death bed in 2003. He told Bernard Kouchner that he lied about Trnopolje and Omarska being “death camps” in the hope of provoking NATO bombing against the Bosnian Serbs. This monstrous media hoax was used in order to demonize the Serbs as the “new Nazis”of Europe, to trivialize the horrors of the Holocaust,  to turn the world – and especially Jewish people – against the Serbs, and to enable the US & NATO/EU Imperialist governments to further dismember Yugoslavia into a series of politically weak NATO/EU-run protectorates.

Kosovo: An Ongoing de-Christianization

Jan 31, 2010

By Lee Jay Walker  | The ongoing de-Christianization of Kosovo continues and unlike the past frenzy of the anti-Serbian mass media in the West, we mainly have a deadly silence about the reality of Kosovo and the continuing Albanianization of this land. However, how is it “just” and “moral” to persecute minorities and to alienate them from mainstream society; and then to illegally recognize this land without the full consensus of the international community?

How ironic it is that the same United States of America and the United Kingdom, two nations who were in the forefront of covertly manipulating the mass media; remain mainly silent about the destruction of Orthodox Christian churches, Serbian architecture, and of course the past killings of Serbians and other minorities in Kosovo.

Ganic ordered mass killing of Serbs in Bosnia

Mar 4, 2010

M. Bozinovich | Former Minister of Interior of Bosnia, Alija Delimustafic, told the court in 2002 that Ganic commanded over Bosnian Muslim units that blocked the withdrawing ethnic Serbian soldiers who were slaughtered on the streets of Sarajevo.

The slaughter is remembered as the Dobrovoljacka Street Massacre and it happened on May 3, 1992.

“Ganic was in the role of the supreme commander of the [Bosnian Muslim] army,” said Delimustafic and named others who were in Ganic’s cabinet.

Serbia wants Ganic extradited from the UK where he is being held in order for him to stand trial.

So how did the massacre occur?

Radical Islam & terrorism in the Balkans

Mar 9, 2010

By Lee Jay Walker | The former Yugoslavia was engulfed by many civil wars and during the mayhem and carnage it is clear that radical Islam built “a new bridge.”  This “new Islamic bridge” was built on foundations which had already been built in Bosnia. However, the 1990s enabled this potent force to enter other areas and to gain ground throughout the former Yugoslavia and this notably applies to Bosnia, Kosovo, and Macedonia.

Other areas of concern apply to Albania, Montenegro, and parts of Serbia (Sandzak).  After all, if the Kosovo model is to go by then the situation looks grim in Bosnia, Macedonia, and Montenegro, because the Muslim population is rising much more quickly and the same applies to the Raska Oblast in Serbia.

At the same time, some Islamic organizations are intent on spreading radical Islam throughout the region and many charities and non-governmental agencies are behind this ongoing reality in the Balkans. Lees verder...

De zaak K. en de leugen van Trnopolje

Lieve dames en beste heren,

Gisteravond, maandag 26-10-2009, zat ik om 20:30 te werken achter de PC toen ik uit de luidspreker van de TV opeens de mij zeer bekende naam Fikret Alic hoorde noemen. Ik draaide me om en volgde de rest van de Netwerk-uitzending op Nederland 2.

Daar stond dus, pontificaal in Den Haag voor de ingang van het Joegoslavië-tribunaal, weer dat nep-slachtoffer van het zogenaamde concentratiekamp Trnopolje (dat geen concentratiekamp was, maar door Penny Marshall van ITN middels (allang bewezen) welbewust en vilein bedrog als zodanig aan de wereld en aan het Amerikaanse PR-bureau Ruder Fin werd verkocht, zodat de kranten massaal konden uitbraken: "Bergen-Belsen op de Balkan") een dikke boehoehoe te doen.
Maar Trnopolje wàs dus geen concentratiekamp, zoals velen heel goed weten: het was een onderkomen voor vluchtelingen.
Penny Marshall van ITN is een bewezen bedriegster.
Fikret Alic was geen kampgevangene en tegenwoordig is hij een aartsleugenaar.
Netwerk TV verkoopt welbewust leugens.
En het Nederlandse publiek slikt braaf die leugens, stel je toch eens voor dat je zèlf zou moeten nadenken.

“Srebrenica Massacre” Invented by Bill Clinton and Alija Izetbegovic

Srebrenica — Neither Massacre, Nor Genocide

“After 14 years of investigating events that took place in Srebrenica in 1995 I can attest there was no genocide over Muslims in that enclave — the myth about the massacre of Muslims was invented by the late Bosnian Muslim war leader Alija Izetbegović and then-U.S. president Bill Clinton,” Swiss researcher Alexander Dorin, author of the book Srebrenica — The History of Salon Racism (Srebrenica — die Geschichte eines salonfahigen Rassismus) told Belgrade daily Press in an exclusive interview.

He added that, contrary to the popular mythology still dominating Western mainstream media, Muslims who lost their lives in Srebrenica were grown men rather than “boys”, and have been gunned down while fighting against the Bosnian Serb Army. Which, as he points out, can in no way be equated with a massacre, let alone “genocide”.

- After many years of investigating the war events in and around Srebrenica, I have reached a definite conclusion that there was no genocide. In July 1995, as the town was being taken over by the Serb forces, some 2,000 Muslim men lost their lives — not 8,000 as the Bosnian Muslim propaganda machinery claims, with the backing of certain Western politicians and media. Those 2,000 men fell in a battle against the Serbian Army, while they were breaking through to Tuzla. “Srebrenica genocide” is Izetbegović’s and Clinton’s invention, – Dorin said.

Organized crime in the Balkans

By Ioannis Michaletos | Blog
April 28, 2008

“He who does not prevent a crime when he can, encourages it.”
Seneca

There are only three ways to become rich; marry the money, invent something or steal"
Unknown

The current global financial crisis coupled with the perennial instability of the Balkans raises suspicions around the creation of much stronger organized crime groups that will be able to dictate their rules of the game to both local governments and international institutions.

Already a trend emerges which has not be fully measured nor examined by the media that illustrates a significant rise in illegal activities and a sure rise in the criminal rates.

According to many reliable local sources, criminal gangs tend to merge and form much stronger teams that are often involved in more than one illegal sector and in parallel orchestrate multidimensional operations such as bank robberies in one country and narcotics contraband in another with a timely fashion and a well coordinated structure.

The latest report by the State Department which was issued on the 27th of February 2009, points out that all Balkan states have serious organized crime problems and the local authorities have a great challenge to overcome.

Radical Islamists expanding in Bosnia

Mar 28, 2009

Radical Islamists known as Salafists are expanding their subversion into Bosnia’s Serb Republic and penetrating their network is increasingly hard says the President of the Committee for Defense and Security in the Parliament of the Serb Republic.

“In Gornja Maoca lives totally closed Salafists community where no authority can come in from Srebrenik,” said President Petar Djokic.

Djokic said that Serbs can not return to Gornja Maoca because the Islamists confiscated their property and ethnically cleansed the village of Serbs.

It is believed that the leader of Islamists from Gornja Maoca also runs an extremist Bosnian Muslim web site, putvjernika.com, that glorifies Jihad and tabulates number of dead Americans in its war on terror.

Serbs want the world to admit their losses

Bosnian Serbs are filing a lawsuit against the United Nations and the Netherlands saying they turned a blind eye to atrocities committed by Muslims against Serb civilians during the war in Bosnia in the early 90s.

World attention has focused on the massacre of thousands of Muslim men in Srebrenica, but Bosnian Serbs say their lawsuit is being brought to show they too were victims – at the hands of Muslims – in a brutal civil war.

According to them, both the UN and the Netherlands had forces inside Bosnia-Herzegovina during the war and were supposed to protect civilians. The Serb survivors insist they turned a blind eye and failed to protect civilians on both sides during the conflict.

A Few Thoughts at the End of the Year

By Douglas Farah

Here are several items that have appeared in recent days that, to me, show just how much work we have to do in the field of combatting terrorism, and particularly Islamist terrorism. It shows what the true goals of these groups are, no matter how much we try to pretend otherwise.

The first is the reference in this New York Times story on radicalization in Bosnia, where it is stated that Saudi Arabia has spent about $700 million in Bosnia since the end of the war, mostly building mosques.

It is noticed in passing that, before this massive investment in the spreading of wahabbism, the Islam practiced in Bosnia was moderate and tolerant, for more than four centuries. Perhaps some cause and effect?

The Iranian reach in Bosnia

Ioannis Michaletos 
December 9, 2008

The Balkan terrain, especially Bosnia in the past decade, were used as a regional hub for a plethora of intelligence services and organizations across the planet, all vying for establishing bases and extracting local support. The reason being was the importance of the region as a staging point for infiltration into Western Europe or the Eurasian states. The role of the Iranian intelligence & security services was significant up until the late '90's. Presently they have been outnumbered by radical Sunnis that are supported from Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states.

The presence of the Iranian intelligence services, more exactly Ministry of Intelligence Affairs and Security (MOIS) and “Revolutionary Guard” in the area of former Yugoslavia dates back to the late seventies and early eighties, following the victory of the Islamic revolution in Iran. Stronger penetration of this service into BIH was registered in early nineties, especially after the war had started in 1992. With the introduction of the arms embargo, many wealthy Arabic and Asian countries started to send humanitarian and military aid to the Muslims in BIH, and to establish humanitarian organizations, first in the Republic of Croatia and then in BIH. Chiefs of these humanitarian organizations, firms and news agencies were actually intelligence agents whose primary task was to establish and manage intelligence network in the area of BIH.

Galijasevic was a former mayor of Bosnian town of Maglaj and an author of a book on terrorism and presence of al-Qaeda in Bosnia.

“It is no secret that Wahabis are grouped around Zenica, Travnik, Brcko, Maglaj and Sarejevo. But it is a secret because no one from the security agencies did not prevent their grouping,” says Galijasevic.

Bosnian Muslim Government Reformed the Nazi SS Division Handzar in 1993

October 15, 2008

The Bosnian Muslim Government and Army of Alija Izetbegovic reformed and revived the Bosnian Muslim Nazi SS Division from World War II. This startling fact was first revealed by British journalist and military analyst Robert Fox in the Daily Telegraph news report from December 29, 1993. The report was entitled “Albanians and Afghans Fight for the Heirs to Bosnia’s SS Past” and was reported from Fojnica in central Bosnia. This was one of the most remarkable stories to emerge during the Bosnian civil war. The Bosnian Muslim Government and Army had reformed a Nazi SS Division right under the eyes of the U.S. and Western media. And only Robert Fox caught it. That is a remarkable example of media censorship and collusion to cover-up the facts. And this was accomplished the U.S. and Western media.

Abu Hamza says that the American demands to move to Kosovo did not come directly but rather through a Turkish source.

"Americans did not then directly negotiate," says Abu Hamza "they did that through the Turkish cultural attaché Muvekir. Muvekir in 1995 at a meeting in a restaurant in Zenica suggested that the entire brigade El-Mujaheed move to Kosovo because there will break out a war between Serbs and Albanians.

"At this moment, the Holy See has not recognized Kosovo as an independent state and does not plan to do so in the near future," Casper said.

Casper was also expressed concern for the destruction of Christian holy shrines that is done by the Muslim Albanian separatists in Kosovo.

Has the UN Let a Blacklisted Islamic Charity Roam Free in Kosovo?

10/2/2005 (Balkanalysis.com)

This article, originally published by Antiwar.com on Sept. 15, 2005, details a worrying sign of international failure to confront terrorist-related groups in the Balkans.

When it comes to charities suspected of terrorist involvement, at what point can a series of independent actions be said to indicate coordinated and malevolent intent? And if they do in fact indicate such intent, what should be done about it?

These are the questions that Thomas Gambill, a former security officer with the OSCE, had to wrestle with during his time in Kosovo, in regards to several Islamic NGOs and charities whose stated activities seemed benign, but whose latent motives were more suspicious.According to Gambill, whose whistleblower testimony first came out on Antiwar.com in August, the verdict is not good: in more than one case, UN bosses of the occupied Serbian province “have turned a blind eye��? to dangerous charities - including a local branch of an Islamic fundamentalist group that has been linked to terrorist attacks and/or extremism in countries ranging from Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Afghanistan to Azerbaijan, Albania, and Bosnia - a group that has, in fact, been partially blacklisted by both the Bush administration and the UN since January 2002.

No UN, EU deal on Kosovo mission

June 3, 2008
SERBIANNA

The meeting between the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and EU High Representative Javier Solana is said to have produced no agreement on reconfiguration of the UN mission in Kosovo.

According to the diplomatic sources, EU is seeking an unrestricted command over its mission termed EULEX so that the UN mission known as UNMIK must get out of their way. One Kosovo separatist paper claims that the EULEX members "feel betrayed, as they cannot cope with the idea that will be commanded by UNMIK."

"For the European Union it is clear that EULEX will have only one command. This command will come from Brussels and nowhere else. This is the European position and the others can think whatever they want,” an unnamed senior EULEX official told the Islamic separatist paper in Kosovo.

Kosovo Muslims threaten "violence of the state"

June 3, 2008
SERBIANNA

The self-styled deputy prime minister of the Muslim Albanian separatist entity government in Kosovo, Hajredin Kuçi, is threatening to use the "violence of the state" in order to force Kosovo Serbs, who are Christian, to obey the laws Islamic separatist government plans to pass on June 15.

Kuçi's remarks that the government plans to use violence against Serbs came after the inquiry by the Islamic separatist paper Express as to how does the Islamic separatist "government" plan to impose its "law and order" in the north.

Kosovo Christians that live in the north have recently held their own elections after which they will create their own legislative Assemblies because the legislature imposed by the Albanian Islamic radicals in Pristina passas laws that routinely violate their human rights.

Over the past weekend, Islamic judge decided that wearing certain kinds of t'shirts by Christians is illegal and punished the two Christian brothers for that with a 500 Euro fine and/or 60 days in jail.

"I consider necessary that the results of the local elections shall be recognized by the Kosovo authorities, but also it is absolutely necessary acceptance of EULEX mission by Serb authorities," former Minister of Exterior of Serbia Goran Svilanovic said.

The accused Kosovo Albanian war criminal who was let free because the intimidated witnesses feared they would be killed if they testified said that the "integration" of the Serbian part of the northern city of Kosovska Mitrovica will begin soon.

"I think that your right to justice in Mitrovica is late, but it will come," said the Muslim Albanian leader Ramush Haradinaj.

At the UN court in the Hague, Haradinaj was accused of rape, torture and other atrocities against the Serbs but the judges let him free in the end because several witnesses failed to testify of Haradinaj's atrocities because they were killed.

Criminal clans rule Kosovo, paper

April 21, 2008
SERBIANNA

Political power in Kosovo is in hands of criminal clans and the international community has been passively looking at it for years, reads the article of the German weekly Spiegel.

That renowned magazine points that

Kosovo is a clan-based society in which a handful of criminals are keeping their own people as hostages while EU bureaucrats are ignoring that writes Spiegel.

Spiegel says that the international community has done nothing during the ten years of the UN rule to curb the corruption. Nor has the Albanian organized crime in Kosovo been curbed even though the police forces and governments of western countries have known for a long time that the province is the main Balkan crossroad for drug and arms dealing, as well as for people trafficking in Europe.

Europol says that the Albanian organized crime gangs are controlling 80% of the drug market in northern Europe, and some 40% in Western Europe, notes Spiegel.

Butchering of Serbs condoned by the West

BANKRUPTCY OF MORAL VALUES

By Vojin Joksimovich
April 17, 2008

The Criminal Tribunal for Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), since its inception in 1993 has been assailed by many as a NATO political instrument to justify dismemberment of Yugoslavia and NATO aggressions. It has been essentially a rogue court with rigged rules and scandalous protocol to achieve political objective to convict. Some judges did not hear about the Balkans until they arrived in The Hague. John Laughland wrote: “It is not victor’s justice; it is no justice at all.” The Tribunal’s verdict for the Serbs was predetermined –all would be found guilty. Over its 15 years of existence, the Tribunal has indicted publicly 161 persons, 92 Serbs. Fifty have been sentenced thus far to over 700 years.  Serbia has handed over 42 out of 46 indicted individuals. Six Serbs died in the Hague jail, including President Milosevic, without being convicted. Not only was Milosevic indicted but also his top civilian and military leaders. The same is true for the Bosnian Serb civilian and military leaders. Lees verder...

UN, Serbia may jointly manage Kosovo

UN mission in Kosovo known as UNMIK has allegedly initiated a secret meeting with Belgrade last week in which it proposed to jointly manage parts of Kosovo in areas of province's judiciary, police, customs, health care, railways and transportation reports an Albanian daily Zeri citing unnamed diplomatic sources.

The so-called president of Albanian separatists Fatmir Sejdiju and a so-called prime minister of Albanian separatists Hasim Thaci have expressed concern saying that the UN's decision is "very problematic for Kosovo".

The Albanian newspaper alleges that the "confidential meeting, held on April 16 in Belgrade" was to revive the plan originally proposed by the Minister for Kosovo Slobodan Samardzic and that UN seeks to implement it "in the near future".

Kosovo Serbs murdered for their organs


April 11, 2008

PRISTINA, Serbia (AP) -- A human rights group has urged Kosovo authorities to investigate claims by a former U.N. war crimes prosecutor that ethnic Albanian guerrillas killed dozens of Serbs and sold their organs at the end of the war in Kosovo.

New York-based Human Rights Watch said Carla Del Ponte had presented "sufficiently grave evidence" in her newly-published book to warrant an investigation into claims guerrillas took Serbs into Albania, killed them and then sold their organs to international traffickers in 1999.

In a letter dated April 4 and addressed to Kosovo's prime minister, the rights group called upon Kosovo's authorities "to determine the veracity" of the claims with counterparts in Albania.

BRUSSELS, Mar 28, 2008 (Xinhua via COMTEX) -- Russia is against the U.S. decision to supply weapons to Kosovo, which unilaterally declared independence from Serbia last month, said Russian envoy to NATO Dmitry Rogozin on Friday. 

"There is a huge amount of weapons in Kosovo already, and it is an issue how to disarm this region," Rogozin told reporters. 

The Russian side requested a meeting with ambassadors of NATO allies after U.S. President George W. Bush announced on March 19 that his country will provide weapons to Kosovo.

Balkans: A crucial aspect of the Grand Game

March 28, 2008

"Ta panta rei, mhbepote kata t'auto menein"

The return of Russia in the Balkan Peninsula

Over the past 18 months, a dramatic series of developments, centered mostly in the energy field in the Balkans, have grasped the attention of the world’s headlines. The Balkan Peninsula is an integral geopolitical zone on which the issue of world governance is being debated between Washington and Moscow, whilst all other powers, namely the EU countries, the Islamic world and the various transnational interests explore opportunities for advancement.

The latest development concerning the declaration of independence by the Albanians in Kosovo can be viewed also in this context. In the minds of many policy makers in USA, an independent Kosovo could serve as a staging point in a renewed play of the “Cold War” and more specifically as a bulwark against any further Russian advancement in the region and more importantly against the creation of a coalition between EU energy importers and Russian-Eurasian exporters.

"Despite all the challenges and despite all the difficulties that we are going through, we remain committed to the path of European integration," Jeremic told reporters after a short breakfast meeting with his EU counterparts, the first time for them to talk face to face since a majority of EU countries recognized Kosovo's self-declared independence, which angered Belgrade.

Kosovo & the population imbalance

By Ioannis Michaletos | Blog
March 16, 2008

In a recent article in this column the importance of the Kosovo precedent was discussed, from the point view of the international law as it has been exercised for the past generations. Certainly the new situation arising from the unilateral Kosovo declaration of independence shapes a new reality that will have multitude and mostly negative consequences for countless nations across the globe. It is important also to illuminate around the existence of the Kosovo issue as a demographic one, shaped by the expansion of one group of people (Albanian Muslims) versus the other one (Serbian Christians). Moreover the existence of facts on the ground as resulting from the population growth of the former, signify a real precedent for other regions in the world.

In 1913 when Kosovo & Metojia became a part of the Serbian state the population of Christians exceeded 50% , whilst the Albanians counted around 350,000 souls, approximately 40%, the rest being occupied by Roma, Bosniaks, Turks and people of mixed origin. A generation later in 1948, after WW2 that resulted in the killings of 20,000 Serbs and the expulsion of some other 150,000 by the Nazi Albanian collaborators, the balance tilted in favor of the Albanians. On top of that, the Tito administration willingly opened up the border up to 1949 and accepted 150,000 illegal immigrants in order to deliberately change the population makeup of the province as a counter-measure against the Serbs. Tito’s motto was “For a strong Yugoslavia we need a weak Serbia”.

UN personnel feared for their lives in Kosovo while some of the judges presiding over the Hague Tribunal for former Yugoslavia were in fear from Kosovo Albanians that have committed atrocities against Serbs and that is why very few cases of Kosovo Albanian war criminals have been prosecuted, writes Carla Del Ponte, former Chief Prosecutor of the UN Tribunal, in her new book.

"I am sure that some of the top UNMIK and even KFOR officials feared for their lives and the lives of their missions’ members," says Del Ponte.

Albanian trafficking in organs of killed Kosovo Serbs investigated

JOVANA GEC
March 21, 2008 12:38 PM

BELGRADE, Serbia-Serbia's war crimes prosecutor is looking into reports that dozens of Serbs captured by rebels during the war in Kosovo were killed so their organs could be trafficked, the prosecutor's office said Friday.

The Serbian prosecutor's office said it received "informal statements" from investigators at the U.N. tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands, that dozens of Serbs imprisoned by Kosovo Albanian rebels were taken to neighboring Albania in 1999 and killed so their organs could be harvested and sold to international traffickers.

Bruno Vekaric, the Serbian prosecutor's spokesman, said later on B92 radio that Serbian war crimes investigators have also received their own information about alleged organ trafficking, but not enough for a court case. Vekaric said Serb investigators also received reports suggesting there might be mass graves in Albania containing the bodies of the Serb victims.

Kosovo has been run by the U.N. and NATO since 1999. It declared independence from Serbia last month.

Kosovo: On the Borders of a Crisis

By Vesna Peric Zimonjic

BELGRADE, Mar 15 (IPS) - 'Welcome to the Republic of Kosovo reads a signpost unveiled last week by Kosovan Prime Minister Hashim Thaci at the Merdare crossing between the breakaway territory and Serbia.

"The plaque symbolises the border of the newest state of Kosovo, which divides the past from the future, isolation from the opening of a perspective for integration," Thaci said. 

"Recognition of this border by our neighbour Serbia will be significant for recognition of their European future," he added, standing next to the signpost in English, Serbian and Albanian. 

But the 100,000 Serbs who live mostly in the north, refuse to become part of the new political reality. In this they are backed by Belgrade.

Bush's Kosovo policy, like Chamberlain's Munich policy, could lead to war

By Mary Mostert
February 24, 2008

History has been a harsh critic of Neville Chamberlain's decision in 1938 to allow Adolf Hitler to trash the WWI Versailles peace treaty to seize control of and change the borders Europe, first France in the Rhineland, then Czechoslovakia and Poland. President George W. Bush's quick acceptance of the efforts of the Albanians in Kosovo to change the borders of Serbia will also be viewed in history as an appeasement that did not work.

World War II actually began when Adolf Hitler marched a mere 14,500 troops into the Rhineland on March 7, 1936, in violation of the Treaty of Versailles that ended World War I and the Locarno Treaty which was signed in 1925 that included the "Rhineland Pact" between Germany, France, Belgium, Britain and Italy. The Rhineland Pact's main provision was an agreement among Germany, France and Belgium end border raids, with Britain and Italy agreeing to guarantee the borders in the event of aggression by any of the other states.

The global game that is Kosovo & Metohija

By Ioannis Michaletos | Blog
February 26, 2008

The latest developments on the 17th of February proved once more that the world political environment passes yet another milestone, albeit going backwards towards the era of Empires and feudalism, rather than progressing into an era of peace and security.

Europe in particular fought tens of bitter wars and conflicts in order to become the harbor of stability in Eurasia. Starting from the Treaty of Augsburg in 1555 (cuius regio cius religio) and the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648, Europe managed finally in 1945 through the signing of the UN Chapter and the Helsinki Final Act in 1975; to confirm the sovereignty of the nation state and the absolute denial for border changes. As it can well be understood this no longer holds, and the International Law becomes a peace of paper on which anyone can interpret what he wishes for, leading the world closer to another war that will ultimately lead to the destruction of the human life as we know it.

Serviërs lopen in Kosovo weg uit instituties

Priština, Belgrado, 25 febr. De Kosovo-Serviërs zijn, aangemoedigd door Servië, bezig zich terug te trekken uit de Kosovaarse instituties.

In Belgrado is vandaag Dmitri Medvedev – zo goed als zeker toekomstig president van Rusland – aangekomen voor een bezoek dat hij wil gebruiken om Servië te verzekeren van Ruslands steun in de kwestie-Kosovo. Officieel tekent hij er als baas van Gazprom een belangrijk contract.

Waarnemers zien de terugtrekking uit de Kosovaarse instituties als onderdeel van een Servisch streven, het onafhankelijke Kosovo te saboteren en het noordelijke Mitrovica af te scheiden.

De Europese Unie stuurt haar personeel, dat in Mitrovica de komst van de EU-missie in Kosovo moest voorbereiden en dat eerder om veiligheidsredenen was teruggetrokken, vooralsnog niet naar Mitrovica terug. Dat zei zaterdag de leider van de EU-missie, de Nederlander Peter Feith. De Serviërs erkennen de EU-missie niet.

Greece battles Balkan organized crime

By Ioannis Michaletos | Blog
February 14, 2008

A phenomenon that expanded during the 90’s and early 00’s is the Balkan organized one, composed by groups of people, mainly ethnic related, that commit wide-range narcotics trafficking, slave trade and all kinds of illegal actions that require systematic action and organized method of operations.

According to recent Greek police reports, there is a pervasion of Balkan groups in Greece, mainly originating from Albania, and they are considered extremely dangerous and a peril for the stability of the society. In Athens the Albanians specialize in drugs trade and organized burglaries, with some groups that have been arrested; accounting as much as 250 burglaries in a space less than a year. Moreover Turkish groups tend to associate themselves with illegal immigrants trafficking from the East (Pakistan, Middle East), Romanians with illegal prostitution and Bulgarians with forgeries and scams.

A trend to watch is the use of technology and new techniques amongst the members of these groups such as, the use of the internet as a virtual communication world, satellite phones, and offshore companies to launder capital, counter surveillance and so on. Further more and more Balkan groups use Greek territory as a regional base and invest their illegal funds in front companies such as bars, clubs, strip shows and the real estate.

After Kosovo Secedes

February 12, 2008
Author:

After several false starts, Serbia’s restive province of Kosovo seems set to declare independence in the very near future (CNN). A declaration would mark the end of an era for Kosovo, which erupted in ethnic violence in the late 1990s, prompted a U.S.-led intervention in 1999, and has been a protectorate of the United Nations ever since. It would also close a chapter for the Balkan region, in all likelihood marking the final splintering of what had been the confederation of Yugoslavia.

Yet Kosovo’s secession seems likely to open as many questions as it resolves. First is the matter of Kosovo’s own stability. Kosovo’s ethnic Serb minority, numbering at least 100,000, remain scattered in pockets throughout the province. Some observers fear these communities could face violence from Kosovo’s ethnic Albanian majority. Serbia warns that an exodus of Kosovo’s Serbs northwards into Serbia might prompt additional ethnic fighting (Guardian). Further complicating these scenarios is likely turnover in international oversight of the province. A looming Russian veto threat in the UN Security Council means the United Nations is unlikely to officially recognize Kosovo as independent and would have to withdraw its mission there. The European Union has readied a replacement mission (Reuters), but questions linger over how smoothly a transfer would take place. For starters, Russia recently questioned the legality (RIA Novosti) of EU or NATO forces operating in an independent Kosovo without explicit authority from the UN Security Council.

BRUSSELS, Belgium-European Union foreign ministers on Monday will seek to overcome differences over whether to offer Serbia a path to EU membership despite the Balkan nation's failure to track down suspected war criminals.

Most EU nations want to conclude the deal quickly to mitigate mounting anti-Western feeling in Serbia as Europe and the United States appear likely to recognize an expected declaration of independence by its breakaway Kosovo province.

However the Netherlands and Belgium are opposed, saying the Serbs have shown insufficient cooperation with the U.N. war crimes tribunal in The Hague, which is still searching for Ratko Mladic and Radovan Karadzic, who led the Serb faction during Bosnia's civil war in the early 1990s.

Will Georgia-Kosovo be the Moscow-Washington deal?

January 24th, 2008

Serbia is to seal the gas deal with Russia and, coincidentally or not, Russia is dropping its insistence that Kosovo would make a precedent on former Soviet Georgia ruled by a Washington backed president.

Are we to expect a reciprocation from Washington?

For some time, foreign policy craftsmen at the Council on Foreign Relations, besides starting the Putin-demonization campaign, have threatened Kosovo independence as a pawn against Russia.

Robert D. Blackwill with the Council on Foreign Relations has urged the Bush administration back in December to show flexibility with such issues as Kosovo by which he means that it is time for US to cash in its chips.

Was Washington waiting on Moscow to make this first offer?

Some hints on this may come out in statements after NATO, EU finishes its “coordinated” meeting with Kosovo Albanian separatists held now.

From Afghanistan to Kosovo: Lessons in Shortsightedness

ANALYSIS By Bojan Ratkovic January 15, 2008

In response to the 1979 Soviet invasion of Aghanistan, Washington initiated a coalition with Islamic states in order to counter communist expansion into Central Asia. The Islamic states that took part in the coalition (including Saudi Arabia overtly and Iran covertly) saw to it that funding Islamic proxy fighters, the Mujahedeen, became the blueprint for supporting Islamic expansion elsewhere. The blueprint was successfully exported into the Balkans where both Saudi Arabia and Iran funded Muslim violence in Bosnia and later in Kosovo, mainly against the Christian Serbs. As in Afghanistan, the Islamists enjoyed Washington’s support in falsely portraying their Jihad as a fight for freedom from Slavic “aggressors”. But what are the consequences of Washington’s strategy? 

Arming the Mujahedeen

In response to what the Western world widely considered an act of Soviet aggression in Afghanistan, the United States (vis-à-vis the CIA and other agencies) along with the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iran and China began heavily arming Islamic guerillas fighting Afghanistan’s government forces and the Soviet military. (Operation Cyclone) The Americans found adequate allies in religious fundamentalists fighting to rid Afghanistan of the “godless Russians”, and establish an extremist Islamic state along the way. As Dr. Farrukh Saleem notes, “between 1980 and 1989, CIA poured in some $6 billion (other estimates go as high as $20 billion) in arms, ammunition, recruiting, establishing an extensive madrassa network, training, feeding and arming of recruits.” The local Afghan “holy warriors” (Mujahedeen) were joined by some 35,000-50,000 Muslim jihadists from 43 other nations, prominent among them a young Saudi extremist named Osama bin Laden.

Anniversary of a lie that spurred bombing of Serbia

Today marks the ninth anniversary since the 1999 Chief of an OSCE Mission to Kosovo, William Walker accused Serbs of massacring 45 civilians in a Kosovo village of Racak, an event used by the Clinton administration as a pretext to initiate a bombing campaign against Serbia claiming that Serbian forces were out to genocide 2 million Kosovo Albanians.

Nine years into this conflict, over two thirds of Serbs have been expelled or killed by the Muslim Albanians of Kosovo and the remaining Serbs are forced into ghettos reminiscent of Jews in the Nazi Germany.

However, the then head of the international monitors in Kosovo, William Walker, said that he had "absolutely no doubt" that Serb troops were killers even though the forensic experts, reported by the Berlin Zeitung, found that there is no proof that unarmed civilians were murdered in Racak.

Great Albania" as base for attack on Europe

By Ioannis Michaletos | Blog
January 6, 2008

The ongoing Kosovo status culminations are inescapably related to the quest of “Great Albania” by Albanian nationalists, Islamic organizations and ambiguous international interests linked in various occasions with transnational criminal entities. The real cause of their aim is the influence across the Balkans so as to format a convenient base for their final target which is Europe.

As it can be understood, the Albanian nationalists are mainly interested in creating a larger state by encompassing all Albanian minorities in the neighboring states. Inevitably that means conflicts across the Balkans for years to come, and it is puzzling how the international community is not interested enough to control the aims of the Albanians that first and foremost put in danger the European prospects of the whole of the region.

Just a few days ago, Nait Hasani member of PDK Presidency called towards the goal of a greater Albania. “First there should be supervised independence as proposed by Ahtisaari. But it is known that Kosovo and Albania citizens are one nation who want to live in one state," Hasani is quoted as having told a Polish paper.  It is interesting to have a glance of the bio of this individual that proposes a blunt border change.

New Year Day attacks on Kosovo Serb homes

January 2, 2008
SERBIANNA

Eight houses owned by Serbs have been attacked in Kosovo on the first day in the New Year, reports FoNet news agency.

Kosovo and Metohija Coordinating Center says that the attacks have been synchronized and focused on a Serbian enclave of Kosovska Mitrovica in northern Kosovo.

One Serb house was set on fire and seven others were stoned. A home owned by Radovan Lazic was set ablaze just after the arrival of the New Year. The house is no longer usable.

Kosovo Serbs are habitually targeted by the Albanian Muslim extremists across the Kosovo province. Later in the New Year day, a Serb bank was blown up in a bombing attack in Kosovo.

Kosovo is a Serbian province, administered by UN since 1999, where Muslim Albanians are a majority by ethnically and religiously cleansing the Christians out of a province in order to make an ethnically and religiously pure Muslim Albanian state. Separatist Muslims have warned repeatedly that they will turn to violence if they do not get independence.

Kosovo Muslim separatists turn to Islamic world

October 29th, 2007

An effort is underway by the Muslim Albanian leaders to mobilize the Islamic world in order to exert a unified pressure on the Western powers to recognize Kosovo’s Muslim unilateral independence.

The first to plead for independence to the Islamic world was Veton Surroi who wrote on October 5, 2007 at the Saudi Gazette where he was identified by the Saudis as an “editor-in-chief of Koha Ditore, the main paper of Kosovo’s Albanian Muslims.”

Over the weekend, Albania’s President Sali Berisha went to Egypt to solicit help in recognizing Kosovo’s independence.

Why Vienna?

October 1st, 2007

According to an AP report, authorities have arrested a Bosnian Muslim during his apparent attempt to blow himself up inside the US Embassy in Vienna.

Back in August, however, former member of Bosnia’s anti terrorist task force, Slobodan Radulj warned that there is an increasing possibility of an Islamist suicide attacks against the Serb Republic in Bosnia. His warning was backed up by intelligence Serbian spies have and are gathering on the Bosnian Muslims who are increasingly joining the ranks of the world’s Jihad.

Radulj was also remarkably precise to single out a Bosnian Muslim Imam, Ahmed Dzinovic, who preaches out of an Austrian town of Graz, a stone throw away from Vienna.

Austria: Attack on US Embassy in Vienna Foiled

By Jeffrey Imm

Three weeks after the arrest of suspected Jihadists in Austria, today the U.S. Embassy in Vienna foiled an apparent nail bomb attack by a 42 year old Bosnian man. The Bosnian man, who lives in Austria, was stopped with a backpack with hand grenades, nails, and Islamic literature as he tried to enter the U.S. Embassy in Vienna today. The Daily Telegraph reports that Doris Edelbacher, of Austria's counterterrorism office stated "There were a lot of nails in that bag. Had it exploded, it would have had an enormous shrapnel effect". The Bosnian man was detained after the metal detector stopped him and he attempted to flee, and the man is now being questioned.

Today's apparent attempted nail bomb attack on the U.S. Embassy in Vienna is one of a series of disturbing Jihadist activity growing in Austria.

Balkans 2007: The beginning?

By Ioannis Michaletos
August 28, 2007

As the world moves fast towards the closing annual season of Autumn,  an upturn in world politics is starting to emerge, and might signify for a third time in less than 100 years that the Balkans will be the locale “Where all silly things started”.

March 2007 was the decisive annum where the emergence of an “Orthodox Energy Axis” seemed to take place, signified by the agreement for the Burgas-Alexandroupoli pipeline. For the first time in history Russia effectively by-passed the Bosporus with the assistance of Bulgaria & Greece, two NATO countries. Both countries were rewarded with the construction of two mega-warehouses of some 1,5 million tons of oil in their ports and Greece has already bought high-tech Russian weaponry that would constitute a real change in the balance of powers in the wider region. Three months later Russia, Bulgaria, Greece and Italy sign a large deal for natural gas transfer that further accelerates the projection of the Balkans right in the middle of the world. Moscow eyes Montenegro where it has invested heavily in the real estate sector and continuously projects its geopolitical role in all states with the exception of Albania for the time being.

PRISTINA, Serbia-The Netherlands would support Kosovo's partition along ethnic lines if ethnic Albanians and Serbia's officials agree on it in upcoming talks aimed at resolving the issue, the Dutch foreign minister said Tuesday.

Maxime Verhagen encouraged negotiators to break the impasse over the future political status of the volatile province and "think out of the box and not to stick to positions."

"If those parties ... can accept a solution which is also workable, which can be put on the ground, then it is of course supported by the Netherlands, including nontraditional solutions," Verhagen told reporters.

Albanian gangs forming drug alliance with South American mafia

August 12th, 2007

The 2007 World Drug Report issued by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crimes is pointing to an alarming new drug alliance between the notorious South American drug lords and the Albanian drug mafia in the Balkans that already controls much of the wholesale network in Europe.

Under section Concerns about cocaine along the Balkan route (p 83):

“While most cocaine shipments from South America continue to be directed towards western Europe… some shipments to East Europe and the Balkan countries have been noticed by enforcement agencies.”

State of the Albanian Organized Crime

By Ioannis Michaletos | Blog
July 27, 2007

The Albanian Organized Crime groups constitute one of the most expanding and networked criminal groups in contemporary Balkans & Europe. Further, their role in the political developments in relation to the Kosovo issue, or the domestic Albanian events should be assessed as well. It is more than certain that any move towards Kosovo independence is strongly supported by them, in order to expand their bases in a newly formed state, thus legalizing to an extent the underworld realm on which they thrive nowadays.

Albanian organized crime groups are hybrid organizations, often involved both in criminal activity of an organized nature and in political activities, mainly relating to Kosovo (1). According to the UN Information Service, “It has become more and more difficult to distinguish clearly between terrorist groups and organized crime units, since their tactics increasingly overlap.  The world is seeing the birth of a new hybrid of “organized crime -- terrorist organizations”, and it is imperative to sever the connection between crime, drugs, and terrorism now.” (2) The interrelation between crime and terrorism has its own international and regional ramifications as an attack against the USA Embassy in Athens-Greece revealed last January, that seems to originate from the triangle between Kosovo-Tetovo-Albania and the arms smugglers networks there (3).

Saudis financed terror in Kosovo

July 19, 2007 9:41 AM
SERBIANNA

July 26, 2007 - Confidential reports by the Central Intelligence Agency have found that a prominent Saudi banking family, Al Rajhi, is a major financier of jihadist activities in Kosovo and Bosnia and their bank, the Al Rajhi Bank, is the most favored bank by the world's extremists to funnel money for violent Muslim activities across the globe.

"There is no reliable estimate of how much the Al Rajhis have given to promote Islam over the years," assesses the Wall Street Journal after examining the secret CIA documents and concludes that the "overseas money went to aid embattled Muslims in Kosovo, Chechnya and the Palestinian territories and to finance Islamic instruction."

The Journal says that in the aftermath of 9/11 the American officials agonized over what to do about the bank's financing of terror.

Kosovo in the 1980s: Murders, Rapes, and Expulsions

By Carl Savich
July 27, 2007

I. Introduction: Ethnically Pure “Kosova”

To understand the Kosovo separatist conflict of 1998-1999, the background must be analyzed and examined. Did the Kosovo conflict emerge sui generis? What was the context and background of the conflict? To understand that, the decade before must be analyzed, the 1980s. Kosovo in the 1980s is where the conflict arose.

From 1981 to 1989, 20,000 Kosovo Serbs are estimated to have fled from Kosovo. There was a massive campaign to drive out the Kosovo Serb population through ethnic murders, rapes, attacks, beatings, desecrations of churches, cemeteries. From 1982 to 1984, 10 rapes were committed, while 11 attempted rapes were committed against Serbian women by Albanian men. In this period, 286 crimes were committed against Kosovo Serbs, while 1,249 misdemeanors were committed against Kosovo Serbs.

A Kosovo Albanian Muslim leader, Fadil Hoxha, incited Kosovo Albanians to rape Kosovo Serb women. Kosovo Albanian Muslims engaged in a systematic and planned policy or campaign to expel Kosovo Serb Christians from Kosovo.  This ethnically and religious motivated campaign of genocide against Kosovo Serbs has been largely suppressed and censored in the US and the West. Through the infowar technique of “emphasis”, these human rights abuses have been de-emphasized and buried and spin doctored away.

Energy factor as factor in Balkans

By Ioannis Michaletos | Blog
July 13, 2007

A mark of our age is the interconnectivity of the political, social and economic global units, based on the expanding networks of telecommunications, transportation and in the case of the current article; energy.  The future of the Balkans and the developments to occur in issues such as Kosovo, strongly depend on the emerging landscape shaped by the antagonisms of the stronger nations and based on the effective control of energy routes.

Since the ascendancy of Putin in the Russian Presidency, Moscow has proved to be an apt player in the economic game that is being unfolded through the construction of a variety of pipelines transferring hydrocarbon from East-to West. Nowadays at least 25% of the European Union’s energy needs in natural gas & oil are being met by Russia and in some cases such as Slovenia; this percentage reaches 60% (Gas) or even 100% for Romania and Slovakia. Moreover the projector for the next generation is negative for the EU since its energy dependency levels will increase from 76% (Oil) to 93% in 2030.  If one adds the political perils concerning imports from the Middle East and the proximity of the Russia market; then the influence of the former seems to be enchasing.

Kosovo: the coming Muslim spectacle of destruction

It is worthy to recall, especially for the Kosovo Albanian negotiating team that thinks is setting the agenda in these status talks, that during the Rambuliet talks in 1999, as the alleged negotiations were ongoing, US warships were heading for the Adriatic in preparation for bombing of Serbia. At the time, Serbia had all of the “incentives” to sign on any dotted line negotiators forced upon them and yet it did not.

Today, there are no American warships in the Adriatic, there is no military mobilization of NATO to force Serbia to accept any plan it does not like…nor will West unilaterally recognize Kosovo.

Pristina thugs need to now blame Washington and London for making them look so stupid by getting them to believe that independence is just around the corner. With allies like those, Serbia does not need to be publicly called their friend.

In fact, today, as Serbia is denying to accept the Ahtisaari plan, America is actually arming Serbia and training its military personnel in Ohio.

Of Bribes and Allegations

By M. Bozinovich
July 1, 2007

Recent allegations that Martti Ahtisaari was a recipient of Albanian money in order to recommend independence for Kosovo has been refuted as "rubbish" by the Ahtisaari's spokesman, Remi Dourlot.

With that dismissal being swell and good, the other unexamined part in this entire allegations fiasco is one of the personalities that allegedly paid the money to Ahtisaari.

According to the allegations made against Ahtisaari, a briefcase stuffed with money was delivered to his office and the money allegedly came from Kosovo's Muslim Albanian billionaire Behgjet Pacolli.

It could turn out that the charismatic Pacolli does know few things, here and there, about stuffed briefcases.

Back in 1995, Russian prosecutors alleged that Pacolli "delivered a briefcase stuffed with U.S. currency, a Cartier watch and a diamond-studded brooch to Pavel Borodin, President Boris Yeltsin's chief of administrative affairs."

Inquiry sought in Ahtisaari bribery allegations

June 25, 2007 -- The Speaker of the Parliament of Serbia, Oliver Dulic, is calling for a formal inquiry into allegations that the Finnish UN Envoy for Kosovo, Martti Ahtisaari, has received bribes in access of 2 million Euros from an Albanian organized crime figure in order to have Ahtisaari write a proposal that will recommend independence for the Serbian province of Kosovo.

A report alleging Ahtisaari took bribes was reported over the weekend by a Bosnian news agency, Focus, specifying that German intelligence, the Bundesnachrichtendienst or BND, has uncovered accounts held by Ahtisaari that received 2 million Euros and that on at least two occasions Ahtisaari was a recipient of cash payments totaling in access of 40 million Euros.

The Canary’s Canary

A quote from Julia Gorin at Frontpagemag.com, 14 february 2007

[T]he Serbs have been the canary’s canary. What the world is trying to do to Israel is what it succeeded in doing to Serbia, which no longer has sovereignty, border integrity (the international community decides what is and isn’t Serbia’s), the right to protect its borders and to defend its citizens. And when Serbia dares to utter a peep of protest to these criminal infringements, it gets piled on by politicians and media alike (most consistently by The Wall St. Journal).

[…] [F]or us to still be proceeding in the same direction this far post-9/11 rather than admit what the 9/11 Commission found – that the foundations for the current worldwide jihad were laid in 1990s Bosnia – is our fatal mistake. Yet we seem determined to continue it.
