Beginning of the End - The Year That Was 2008

by Nebojsa Malic
"What comes next is anybody's guess" were the closing words of this column in December 2007. That had been a turbulent year, marked by a series of setbacks for the Empire on all fronts. Aside from the ongoing quagmire in Iraq and Afghanistan, even in the Balkans – the region handpicked for the demonstration of hegemony – things were not proceeding according to plan.
Ironically, during 2008 the situation became reversed. While the Empire managed to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat in the Balkans, its grip slipped away everywhere else. If the purpose of creating an "independent" Kosovo was to reinforce US hegemony, then it was a Pyrrhic victory, set against the rise of China, a resurgent Russia, a rebellious Latin America, and an economic crisis that shook the very foundations of the West. The sight of two shoes hurled at Emperor Bush by an Iraqi journalist during a press conference in Baghdad was just the finishing touch.

John Rosenthal: Islamophobes and Islamists

Asked to elaborate during the panel discussion on the supposed “parallels” between contemporary “Islamophobia” and traditional anti-Semitism, Benz pointed, for instance, to the notion that Islam “requires Muslims to make war against non-believers.” The problem with this comparison, of course, is that it is not, first or foremost, Islamophobes who have disseminated such a notion, but rather Islamists. Whether or not the Islamist interpretation of the Quran is the correct one is beside the point. Numerous Muslims around the world have been convinced enough that it is proper to translate said “notion” into deadly real practice. The September 11 attacks, the Bali bombings, the Madrid bombings, the London bombings, the 11/26 Mumbai attacks, and innumerable other Islamist-inspired terror attacks in the last seven years make this abundantly obvious. To leave all of this out of account — or to treat September 11, 2001 as just some date that for no …

“There are some people who want to turn Bosnia into a Muslim state”

Bosnia is flooded with Wahhabis and Saudi money, mosques and madrasas are springing up everywhere, women are in hijabs -- but no worries. Bosnia is a secular, moderate Muslim country and will stay that way, and you better not dare to take too much notice of its rapid descent into jihadist fanaticism, unless you want to be labeled a neofascist supporter of Serbian genocide!
Such febrile fantasies and frequently libelous charges hurled against critics of the spread of jihadism in the Balkans, even by some who claim to oppose the global jihad, continue to prevent a sober analysis of what is happening there. And they help enable the jihadists to continue their work there unhindered, enjoying even the support of the abysmally clueless State Department.

Benjamin Weinthal: Mission apolitical

The original mission of the publicly funded center, founded in 1982 by a Jewish survivor of the Nazis, was to study anti-Semitism and the Holocaust, as well as xenophobia and racism in general. In recent years, however, the center has increasingly focused on discrimination against non-Jewish minorities. Reflecting this tendency, Wolfgang Benz, the center’s director since 1990, wrote in a preview to this month’s conference that “The fury of the new enemies of Islam parallels the older rage of anti-Semites against the Jews.”

Homeschooling 2.0

By Milton Gaither
“I never really told anybody about my music at school, only my really close friends,” Cheyenne Kimball told People Magazine in 2006. “Then [school officials] actually aired the show around the whole entire school, and that caused a lot of problems. I was a straight-A student and all of a sudden I didn’t want to go to school anymore because of the things people were saying. That’s why I’m homeschooled now.” Cheyenne, winner of NBC’s America’s Most Talented Kid at age 12, recording artist, and star of her own MTV show, is just one of many high-profile Americans whose educational choices make it clear that homeschooling has gone mainstream. Bethany Hamilton, a homeschooled surfer girl, became an instant celebrity when she survived a shark attack in 2003 that cost her an arm. Her tragedy and inspiring recovery have been leveraged into a “mini-empire” of merchandise, including her own perfume, accessory line, fiction, advice books, and autobiography. Movie stars Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, married in 1997, homeschool their two children along with Will’s nephew. Why? “For flexibility,” Jada told an Essence reporter, “so they can stay with us when we travel, and also because the school system in this country—public and private—is designed for the industrial age. We’re in a technological age. We don’t want our kids to memorize. We want them to learn.”

Kosovo, the United States, and International Law

by Lenora Foerstel, globalresearch
Under the Bush administration, the United States has demonstrated little, if any, respect for the fundamental rules of international law, human rights, and the American Constitution. In particular, by arbitrarily conferring sovereignty on the Serbian province of Kosovo, the United States has violated the territorial rights and sovereignty of Serbia.
The independence of the United Nations and the Security Council is often compromised by American influence and intimidation. Bowing to American and British pressure, the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon handed over the power of the UN mission in Kosovo to the European Union, violating UN resolution 1244, which acknowledged Serbian sovereignty and territorial integrity. The Secretary General’s actions were carried out without the consent of the Security Council and in opposition to the will of Serbia.

There They Go Again - Empire to Return to Bosnia?

by Nebojsa Malic
"Fears of new ethnic conflict in Bosnia," declared the New York Times on December 13, in an article that may yet be one of the most curious cases of the dog that did not bark. Authored by Dan Bilefsky, what is supposed to be a news feature ends up being a somewhat subtle editorial promoting more American intervention in this bloodied corner of Europe. Yet nothing in the article is actually news. The "recent" editorial by ex-US envoy Richard Holbrooke and ex-viceroy Paddy Ashdown that Bilefsky invokes was actually published in mid-October, and the ongoing feud between Muslim leader Haris Silajdzic and Serb prime minister Milorad Dodik is as novel as the "discovery" that water might, in fact, be wet.

In the last three years Agape church members have endured false allegations and verbal abuse from Muslim and nationalist locals. Their pastor has received death threats, and their building has been vandalized, all in an attempt to stop the 30 or so Christians from meeting.

Seys-Inquart's Heirs

LAST WEEK, on four consecutive days, there were anti-Israeli articles in Norway’s second-largest daily Aftenposten. The first called for a general boycott of Israel. The second promoted an academic boycott, falsely accusing Israeli physicians of participating in torture and the Israeli Medical Association of remaining silent about it. Any honest debater would have reported that Israeli hospitals routinely treat Palestinian children, some of whom express joy when suicide bombers kill Israelis. One wonders whether any other country would allow this.
The third article stressed the right to criticize Israel. This is a typical attack on a “straw man,” as nobody denies this right. The fourth claimed that Israel is not a democracy. Only thereafter a pro-Israeli voice was heard.
Two years ago the conservative Aftenposten got international attention when it published an op-ed by Jostein Gaarder which until this day remains the vilest anti-Semitic article published …

John Rosenthal: Bertelsmann’s Briefing Book for Barack

Bertelsmann’s “Trans-Atlantic Briefing Book” is available here. Bertelsmann also refers to it as a “European Briefing Book for Barack Obama”. The document sets out a “roadmap” for transatlantic cooperation during Obama’s first six months in office. In typical Bertelsmann style, the authors do not hesitate to speak on behalf of all of Europe and all Europeans. The tone of the document more closely resembles that of a Diktat laid down by a victorious power to a defeated adversary than that of a policy papers published by a customary think-tank. Although providing what are merely styled “recommendations,” the authors’ preferred register is in fact bluntly imperative. Thus the very first sentence reads: “Engaging with Europe is not an option” (i.e., not merely an option). The “Briefing Book,” we are told shortly thereafter, will identify “items that must specifically be addressed” (my emphasis) in the “short window” following the inauguration (p. 5). …

Bad manners: EU - Hitler Cohn-Bendit is no gentleman

Vaclav Klaus was an outspoken dissident under the Communist regime, and he has come to regard the EU as dangerously anti-democratic. But he compounds this sin with highly sceptical views on global warming, on which he recently published a book, Blue Planet in Green Shackles. He likens the extreme environmentalism favoured by the EU to Communism, as a serious threat to democracy, freedom and prosperity. So when Klaus was due to meet the MEPs, one of them decided this was a moment to display the Euro-elite’s hostility to him. Daniel Cohn-Bendit, who is German born but lives in France, first came to prominence in Paris in 1968 as a student agitator. He is now leader of the Green MEPs. Talking loudly in the plane to Prague, he made no secret of his intentions, and brief French journalists on how to get maximum publicity for his planned insults.

Albanian Monster Mafia Grows Stronger

Marko Nicović, former chief of Belgrade Police, argues that trafficking narcotics and keeping Kosovo province crime zone out of the reach of law is the main reason for Priština rebellion against the European Union. He has many more arguments for this claim after returning from the gathering of International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) in San Diego.
- Kosovo province is the key point as far as the drug smuggling is concerned, especially heroin. On the other hand, the Colombian mafia uses the Albanian mafia as a base for the whole of Western Europe. Thus, the two most powerful mafias are connected and Europe will have a major problem in that regard, - Nicović said in an interview for Pravda.

The Iranian reach in Bosnia

By Ioannis Michaletos
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 Left and the Jews

THE LEFTIST movement in West Germany completely changed its view of Israel after the war of 1967. Prior to then, its majority was philo-Semitic (in a problematic way); afterward it became staunchly pro-Arab and anti-Israel - if not openly anti-Semitic. Israel was accused of committing the same crimes as Nazi Germany, and the Palestinians were seen as “the Jews of the Jews.” This was an easy way for German leftist to get rid of the burden of Auschwitz and make up for the anti-fascist struggle their parents never fought. Due to the constellation of the Cold War, as well as for ideological reasons, the German Democratic Republic was consistently anti-Israel as well. It had a strong relationship with Arab dictatorships, and was one of the leading weapons suppliers of the PLO. Zionism was seen as a racist ideology, and the Jewish state as the spearhead of imperialism and colonialism subjugating …

Benjamin Weinthal: The Trojan Horse of Islamophobia

Anti-Semitism experts in Germany, the US and Israel are leading an escalating assault on Berlin’s Center for Research on Anti-Semitism, accusing the center and its director, Wolfgang Benz, of equating Islamophobia with anti-Semitism while ignoring Iran’s genocidal threats toward Israel and trivializing the Holocaust. What started as a row among scholars triggered by the center’s conference on Monday, “Concepts of the Muslim Enemy - Concepts of the Jewish Enemy,” has turned into a heated public debate over the center’s work. Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel expressed misgivings to The Jerusalem Post: “If indeed the Berlin Center for Anti-Semitism downplays the Iranian anti-Semitic threat, it surely is deplorable.”

Those pesky Maronites: "Lebanese man" found guilty of bomb plot in Germany

Wait, no, scratch that. His name is Youssef Mohammed el-Hajj Dib -- more likely a Muslim than a Maronite. Not that his religion had anything to do with this. Oh, no. To think that would be "Islamophobic." He just probably objected to the gum stuck to the bottom of his seat on the commuter train.
"Germany: Lebanese man found guilty of bomb plot," from
AKI, December 9 (thanks to C. Cantoni):
Dusseldorf, 9 Dec. (AKI) - A Lebanese man (Photo) has been sentenced to life in prison for a failed plot to bomb a German commuter train in 2006. A regional court in the city of Dusseldorf on Tuesday convicted 24-year-old Youssef Mohammed el-Hajj Dib of multiple counts of attempted murder and attempting to cause an explosion.
Prosecutors said el-Hajj Dib and an accomplice, Jihad Hamad, boarded two trains in Cologne, one headed for Koblenz, one for Dortmund, in July 2006 with two suitcase bombs that failed to explode.
The bombs failed to detonate, but prosecutors said the planned attacks in western Germany could have caused up to 75 casualties.
Ottmar Breidling, the presiding judge, said el-Hajj Dib was guilty of a "terrorist act" and dismissed the defendant's claim that he had only deposited a mock bomb packed in a suitcase in a rail carriage to scare the German public....
Still, this is possible. Maybe his mission was only to "strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah" (Qur'an 8:60).

Matthias Küntzel: Islamophobia or Truthophobia?

Surprisingly, the Berlin Center for Research on Antisemitism adopted the neologism “Islamophobia” without any reservation and put anti-Muslim sentiments and antisemitism in the same category. Today, the Center is presenting its new findings at a conference in Berlin titled “Concepts of the Muslim Enemy – Concepts of the Jewish Enemy”. My critical assessment of this event is published in today’s Wall Street Journal.

It is certainly necessary to oppose the demonization of Muslims and discrimination against them, which often have racist motivations. The Berlin center, whose research covers prejudices in general, is right to address this issue. The problem lies in the way it is being done. The Berlin center adopts the neologism “Islamophobia” without any reservation. This term is misleading because it mixes two different phenomena—unjust hatred against Muslims and necessary criticism of political Islam—and condemns both equally. By accepting this vocabulary, the Berlin center reinforces an unfortunate trend. In May 2005, the Council of Europe—at the urging of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan—used the term for the first time, condemning “all forms of intolerance . . . including anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.”

He told Kosovo-Metohija Radio that he received information from the trusted sources that the elderly couple was, indeed, killed in their own house.

IRAN: AN INSANE ASYLUM GOES NUCLEAR

Does Mumbai give the Israelis license to bomb Iranian nuclear installations? That thought certainly want through my head in the last few days. And I imagine I am not the only one. Mumbai was a true act of religious mania and what we are witnessing in Iran is the same thing writ large. Does anyone want a country where police go around cracking down on “satanic dress“and closing un-Islamic barber shops to have nuclear arms? Sure, not all the mullahs are religious lunatics. Some are merely Mafioisi profiteering on religious lunatics (a relief!), but enough of them believe their psychotic ideology to take this really seriously. A nuclear armed Iran would be liking giving a loaded gun to an infant. No wonder the Israelis are preparing. Wouldn’t you under the circumstances?

Now, I am not advocating the “Barbara Ann” solution. But I am sure the Israelis are doing their saber rattling to wake everyone up, increase the sanctions. Will this happen? In this greedy world, I doubt it. But you gotta try.

Nuclear Power Iran

On the character of the Iranian regime and its nuclear ambitions
Lecture by Dr. Emanuele Ottolenghi
(Executive Director of the Transatlantic Institute, Brussels)
Chair: Simone Dinah Hartmann (STOP THE BOMB)
Wednesday, December 10th, 19.30
University of Vienna, Neues Institutsgebäude, lecture hall II
Universitätsstraße 7, 1010 Vienna
This event is organized by STOP THE BOMB and co-sponsored by Scholars for Peace in the Middle East – Austria and the student representatives for political science
Is Iran developing nuclear weapons? This is a question discussed at the international level, and the position of the new American administration and the European Union regarding the Iranian regime will decisively impact world politics in the upcoming months. The question of the purpose of the Iranian nuclear program can only be answered if one provides clarity on the character of the Iranian regime and its ambitions. Emanuele Ottolenghie will talk about the history, the current situation, and possible future developments regarding the Iranian nuclear program in the context of the Khomeinist ideology, and will further answer the question what an appropriate reaction of the European Union and its member states to the nuclear ambitions and human rights violations of the Iranian regime would be.
Dr. Emanuele Ottolenghi is a political scientist and Director of the Transatlantic Institute in Brussels. He frequently writes for publications such as Newsday, Commentary, National Review Online, The Middle East Quarterly, Jewish Chronicle, The Guardian, The Daily Mirror, Die Welt, Il Corriere del Ticino, L’Unità, Il Foglio, Libero, Il Reformista and Standpoint Magazine.The lecture and discussion will be held in English.

Agony of the Serbs in Srebrenica Death Camps

Book by Ljiljana Bulatovic-Medic, available only in Serbian for the time being, “Screams and the Omen”, a harrowing testimony about the agony Bosnian Serbs were subjected to by their Muslim neighbors in Srebrenica death camps during the Bosnian civil war (1992-1995), was promoted yesterday in Belgrade, by the Association of Writers of Serbia.
With the third book in the edition “The Real Srebrenica”, Ljiljana Bulatovic-Medic has given a valuable contribution to establishing the full truth about the martyrdom and bloodcurdling sufferings of the Serbs in Srebrenica, which is to this day entirely ignored by the Western officials and the mainstream media.
Through the conversations with the victims and survivors of the Bosnian Muslim death camps, she presents the authentic testimony about the depraved, savage tortures of the Bosnian Serb women, mothers and their children still in the cradle, of how the paralyzed old men were being slaughtered and the monstrous physical and psychological abuses Bosnian Muslim “fighters” have subjected the imprisoned Serbs to, the final fate of many of whom remains unknown to this day.

Clemens Heni: Anti-Semitism is not the same as Islamophobia

The Center for Research on Antisemitism (ZfA) of the Technical University in Berlin has scheduled a conference on December 8 titled “The concept of the enemy Muslim - concept of the enemy Jew.” In publicity for this conference the ZfA writes that the “paradigm” of accusations against Muslims is known from “the history of anti-Semitism.” It seems that the organizers feel there is a moral equivalence between garden-variety prejudice (portrayed as “Islamophobia") and anti-Semitism. This is a dangerous course, particularly in Germany, which saw the quintessential manifestation of anti-Semitism in modern times.
Quite aside from the fact that Judaism embraces both a race and a religion, whereas Islam is strictly a religion, anti-Semitism is different than other forms of prejudice or racism. Whereas the racist view of blacks, for example, holds that they are “below” whites, anti-Semites think Jews are planning to rule the world. The Israel …

Kosovo’s dirty secret: the background to Germany’s Secret Service affair

by Peter Schwarz
The arrest of three German secret service agents in Kosovo exposes the sort of society that has been developed with German and American support in this former part of Yugoslavia—one mired in corruption, organised crime and secret service plots.
The affair began on November 14, when a bomb exploded outside the office of the European Union special representative, Pieter Feith, in Kosovo’s capital, Pristina. The building was damaged but no one was hurt. Immediately afterward in a neighbouring building, a German man, Andreas J., was observed and questioned by the Kosovan security forces, and unmasked as an agent of Germany’s Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND, Secret Service). This is according to the public prosecutor’s office. German sources, however, claim that Andreas J. only came to the scene four hours after the explosion to take photographs.
Normally, such secret service affairs between friendly governments are settled quietly and discreetly, usually by the departure of the unmasked agents. Not so in this case. Last week, the police arrested Andreas J. and two additional BND agents, accusing them of having planted the bomb at the EU’s International Civilian Office (ICO) building.

UNMIK’s Responsibility Yet to be Established

Vladan Batić, Minister of Justice in the Government of Zoran Đinđić, used a year at his post to fully inform and submit all the evidence to UNMIK (UN Mission in Kosovo) about the crimes committed by the KLA commanders, war criminals Hashim Thaci, Ramush Haradinaj and Agim Ceku, calling on UN officials to remove butchers from the leading posts in NATO-occupied Kosovo and Metohija province.
In his correspondence with the UNMIK leaders, Batić listed crimes the savage Kosovo Albanian troika had committed against the Serbs in Croatia and in Serbian province of Kosovo and Metohija. He requested that Thaci, Haradinaj and Ceku are banned from all political activities until they are tried for the crimes they have committed.
But no amount of evidence was sufficient for UNMIK to open investigation into the Albanian crimes reaching crescendo under the NATO auspices — monstrous murders, rape, deportations and torching the houses — to punish the perpetrators against whom there was solid, concrete evidence.
Instead of the punishment, KLA commanders Thaci, Haradinaj and Ceku were rotated replacing each other at the leading political functions, while Serbian victims were left to oblivion by those who came to their southern province promising to protect them and by the international community at large.
“In Kosovo and Metohija, terrorism is the cruel reality. At the top of the pyramid of the terrorists are Thaci, Ceku and Haradinaj,” Batić wrote to UNMIK.

Croat State Genocide Supported by Vatican, Germany and US

Smilja Avramov: If the Court governs itself by the law, Serbia’s chances to prove Croat state genocide are at full hundred percent.
“Croatia has absolutely no chance of proving the alleged genocide it wants to pin Serbia with. It was indeed Croatia that has committed a horrific genocide against the Serbs under the auspices of Vatican, Germany and the United States. If the Court is going to govern itself exclusively by the law, Serbia has an ironclad case against Croatia,” Smilja Avramov, an International Law expert, told Belgrade daily Glas Javnosti.

She emphasized that Serbia should file a lawsuit, rather than a counter lawsuit against Croatia.

“This is an ideal opportunity to clearly prove the continuity of genocide [by the Croat state], of varying intensity, since 1941 until today”, Professor Avramov said.

Federal prosecutors' spokesman Frank Wallenta says police made no arrests during Thursday's raids on the residences of several people suspected of acquiring detonators for three alleged terror plotters.
The suspected plotters are now on trial. They are alleged to have operated as a German cell of the radical Islamic Jihad Union.
Wallenta declined to say Saturday where the raids had been carried out. Germany's Bild daily says they were in Baden-Wuerttemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Lower Saxony.

A Lesson from Kosovars & Palestinians for Atlasians

Gerald A. Honigman

With a new President with a long list of anti-Israel friends and supporters about to take office, a few key issues need to be placed into their proper perspectives...
Now tell me, what would you do in the age of nationalism--which came relatively late to the Middle East--if your national group already had almost two dozen states on over six million square miles of territory (conquered mostly from other national groups), wanted to create at least one more, but another people’s sole, tiny, resurrected nation state stood in the way?

Serbia to File Counter Lawsuit Against Croatia for Genocide

Serbia will file a lawsuit against Croatia for ethnic cleansing, war crimes and genocide the Croat state had committed against its Serbian population during the latest civil war on the territory of former Yugoslavia, but also during the Second World War, at the time Croatia was a fascist state, Serbia’s Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremić announced late on Tuesday.
“Unfortunately, Croatia did not respond adequately to the hand of reconciliation Serbia repeatedly offered, with a desire to leave the past behind and turn to our common European future. They have refused to face the fact that 250,000 Serbs were ethnically cleansed from the territory of Croatia [during the "Operation Storm"]. This time around, they will have to do so in front of the Court of Justice. A lawsuit will now be filed against Croatia in order for the truth to finally be determined,” the minister told RTS.

Slobodan Antonić: NGO-Left and Antifa Models

At the Saturday’s gathering of the “antifascists” in Belgrade, even according to the reports by the friendly media, there was no more than several hundred of participants. The most visible were representatives of the nominally Left parties: Nenad Čanak (League of Social Democrats), Žarko Korać (Social Democratic Union), Srđan Milivojević (Democratic Party, a member of the Socialist International), etc. There were also representatives of the gay community, with their rainbow-colored flag and speakers. The third category of participants were young anarchists, or rather, the anarcho-syndicalists.
All of them were guarded by the 2,500 police officers — three policemen per one demonstrator. Thus, our “anarchists” and “leftists” have enjoyed the security a police baton had provided them with.

Did Muhammad exist? Muslim prof isn't so sure, outrage brewing

Sven.jpg
Kalisch: an increasingly rare breed, an honest university academic

The picture of the life of Muhammad that one gets from Islamic sources is based on some very, very weak reeds from a historical standpoint. (I hope to be writing about this problem and its implications in much greater detail in the future.) But the historical criticism of the Jewish and Christian Scriptures that academics have engaged in for centuries has never been undertaken in an Islamic context, for reasons that should be obvious. The Qur’an is a book never to be doubted, never to be questioned: when one Islamic scholar, Suliman Bashear, taught his students at An-Najah National University in Nablus that the Qur’an and Islam were the products of historical development rather than being delivered in perfect form to Muhammad, his students threw him out of the window of his classroom. Christoph Luxenberg, who has done groundbreaking work in this area, publishes under a pseudonym.

Of course, in this the stakes are very high for Muslims. There is no Liberal Islam or Reform Islam that distills moral precepts out of material that is not considered to be historically true and thus has no literal application. Maybe it could be created, at least by a faction, if it became widely known and accepted that the authoritative story of Muhammad and the Qur'an rests on such weak historical foundations, but we are very, very far from that today.

And that is what makes Muhammad Sven Kalisch all the more remarkable. Saying this could get him fired. It could get him killed. It could, and probably already has, interfered with his personal outlook on life. But this is the result of his researches, and he is sticking to it. Whether he is right or wrong, and there is a great deal to support his view, he is at very least uncompromisingly honest.

How refreshing it is to see an honest man, and that even rarer bird, an honest academic, and that rarity of rarities, an honest professor of Islamic studies.

Continued Albanian Attacks on Kosovo Serbs

Kosovo province Serbs were yesterday once again exposed to “incidents” in which “unknown persons” discharged rounds of ammunition from the automatic weapons on the territory where Serbian population remains in majority.
Following the usual scenario, this time in the Brđani settlement in Northern Mitrovica, “a number of rounds were fired from the automatic weapons” by the “unknown perpetrators”. As reported by the northern Kosovska Mitrovica police station commander Milija Milošević, nobody was hurt.
Leader of the Association of Serbian municipalities in Kosovo and Metohija province Marko Jakšić said that Albanians are systematically spreading fear in Serb-populated Northern Mitrovica, with the single aim to bully and intimidate the remaining Kosovo Serbs, forcing them flee the province.

Armistice Anniversary: Commemorating Serbian WWI Heroes in France

Laying the wreaths at the monument to King Alexander I Karadjordjević in Paris and at the Serbian military cemetery in the town of Thiais near Paris, on November 8, marked the commemoration of Serbian soldiers who have sacrificed their lives in the First World War.
King Alexander I Karadjordjević was assassinated 74 years ago, on October 9, 1934, in Marseille, by the Croat Nazis — Ustashi, portending the rise of fascism and the upcoming horrors of the WWII. The French had built a grandiose monument in the Boulogne Forest, Paris, both to Alexander I and his father, King Peter Karadjordjević.

Lessons of Kristallnacht

By Deborah Weiss
FrontPageMagazine.com
November 9, 2008 marked the 70th anniversary of Kristallnacht. It was a night of terror which constituted the commencement of the Holocaust.It was a horrible night, but it was merely a foreshadow of the doom yet to come. This anniversary should not merely commemorate the horrible events that took place in 1938. Rather, it should serve as a warning that we must learn the lessons of history lest we repeat our mistakes; we must take our enemies’ words seriously, and we must not be complacent in the face of evil.

Bombed Because of an Adjective



Former Italian Foreign Minister Lamberto Dini recently admitted that NATO aggression against Serbia (March 24 — June 10, 1999) had nothing to do with the alleged humanitarian concerns — NATO bombed Serbia for three months because the United States and Britain wanted to have a military base on its territory.

Dini said Serbian officials would have signed the ultimatum issued by the West at the conference in Rambouillet, if it had excluded only one word.

- The problem was only one adjective. It would have been sufficient for Serbia if the document excluded the word "military" and left only the "international presence" in Kosovo, but the U.S. insisted on NATO getting an opportunity to enter the province - Dini explained.


You can read more on this story over at Svetlana’s brilliant new anti-war website De(Construct).net

Next time you read a commentator in the MSM talk about NATO’s ‘humanitarian’ intervention in Kosovo, just email them the link.

It’s time to set the ‘official’ record straight.

POINT OF CLARIFICATION: The country which NATO illegally bombed in 1999 was of course called the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, and not Serbia, which did not exist as a sovereign state at that time. But I've kept 'Serbia' in the account above because it was the word used by the Lamberto Dini.

Fitzgerald: A perfect example of the mentality one can see all over the Western world

Arie Oostlander is the EU Rapporteur for Turkey.
Here's what he said in an interview given on 18 November 2005 in Arnhem, about his work as that EU Rapporteur for Turkey:
"My approach was, strict, fair, and open. There are very humane consequences to Turkish EU membership, if Turkey is really able to change into a constitutional state. And I really believe that people can change. It is very Christian to believe that, and very un-Christian not to believe that. …
Turkish nationalism, the education of judges and the police, the violation of individual human rights; - all this has to change in Turkey. When Turks told me they were afraid to push the army to the barracks because this vacuum might lead to fundamentalist Muslims taking over, I said, 'if you Turks are afraid of Islam, what then should I tell my constituency in the Netherlands? And if you are right, then there is indeed a structural problem between Turkey and the EU."
Though very short, this statement manages to tell you a great deal about Arie Oostlander, EU Rapporteur for Turkey, about his hopes and dreams, his illusions and schemes, all based on his self-assured schoolgirlish belief that, as he puts it so well, "I really believe that people can change. It is very Christian to believe that, and very un-Christian not to believe that."

Arrested Kosovo Albanian Harvested Organs from Kidnapped Serbs?

According to the Belgrade media reports, the investigation of the illegal kidney transplantation in Priština had led to an arrest of an Albanian urologist Lufti Dervishi, suspected of harvesting the organs for sale from Kosovo Serbs kidnapped by the terrorist KLA (UCK) in the immediate aftermath of NATO bombardment and occupation of southern Serbian Kosovo and Metohija province.
One witness in the investigation into the trafficking of organs of Serb prisoners from Kosovo in 1998, mentioned Dervishi’s name in regards to the case, according to Blic.
“The witness told Serbian war crimes prosecutors that he saw Doctor Lufti Dervishi at locations where it was suspected that organs had been extracted from civilian prisoners and sold later,” Blic’s source stated.

Dutch 10-12 year-olds learn in school: Wilders is Hitler, Wilders has no respect for people that look different

Shameful. A press release from the Dutch Freedom Party:

Dutch youths will learn next week at school that Geert Wilders is to be compared to Adolf Hitler. They will receive nationally-distributed class material that states “Geert Wilders’ film Fitna and Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf are based upon one-sided points-of-view. Fortunately there are also other books and plays that -on the contrary- show respect for people with other ideas or faiths or that look different.”

The pupils will receive the class material highlighting the Day of Respect, a multiculturalist project. The project is funded by three departments of the national government: Education, Justice and Housing. The school material has a national distribution among 10-to-12 year olds. The pupils will receive the newspaper at school.

Geert Wilders: “The day of respect is a hate fest against the Freedom Party. According to the organization everybody deserves ‘respect’, but of course, if you stand for freedom and oppose the islamisation of the West you don’t deserve any respect at all. Then the government will tell children you have a problem with ‘people that look different’. They play the racism card.”

“We are extremely angry the Dutch Department of Education is involved in this project. We demand from education minister Ronald Plasterk to immediate withdraw any cooperation. Children go to school to learn not to be indoctrinated.”

The Freedom Party wants the class material to be discussed in Parliament this week.

Račak Terrorists All Killed in Combat

“Members of the terrorist KLA [UCK] killed in Račak on January 15, 1999, were not executed. They were killed by the firearms alone, while they were running or were on the move, in the trenches or beside. There were no traces of violent injuries on their bodies either before or after death, and no traces of use of any other weapons, tools or objects on them. Soldiers from other countries, or instructors, were among the killed in Račak.
“All 40 postmortem reports were agreed upon with the Finnish pathologists down to the last line. And then Helena Ranta went out and read a completely different report”, said Professor Dr. Slaviša Dobričanin, Director of the Forensic Medicine Institute in Pristina at the time of Račak battle and a head of the team which performed the forensic examinations in the case.

NY Times Comrade Simons’ Tough Year

By Edward S. Herman,
Poor Marlise: Her Old Allies Are Now Attacking the Tribunal and Even Portraying the Serbs as Victims, ZNet

Marlise Simons, the New York Times’s main reporter on the Milosevic trial and International Criminal Trial for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), has had a difficult year. Perhaps most painful was the disclosure that in 1999 the Kosovo Albanian KLA sent as many as 300 captive Serbs to Albanian to be killed and their internal organs “harvested” for sale abroad, a matter barely mentioned in the New York Times (see below). I was sorely tempted to write to Marlise Simons and offer her my sympathies: “Marlise, if only the villains in this case were Serbs, what a fine front page article you could have had here!”
She and her paper did have a windfall with the arrest of former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic and his transfer to the Hague for trial in July (18-21), which was exploited to a maximum with nine bylined Simons articles, multi-day front page coverage, a stream of pictures of grieving (or capture-celebrating) victim family members, and the usual complete absence of any critical context on either Bosnian history or the nature and record of the ICTY.

Do Christians and Muslims have equal rights?

If you go to the BBC link, you'll see two pictures: one of a mosque in Germany which is about to be drastically enlarged by the largely Turkish population; the other of a church in Turkey which is run as a museum, you know, like the Hagia Sophia. So:
"Do Christians and Muslims have equal rights?" from the BBC, October 31:
Catholic and Muslim leaders are meeting from 4th-6th November to launch a new Catholic-Muslim forum.
It is an unprecedented initiative by the Vatican to improve relations between the two faiths.
The BBC's Christopher Landau has been looking at the state of Catholic-Muslim relations.
In the first of two reports, he travelled to the German city of Cologne, where the largely Turkish Muslim community plans to build one of Europe's largest mosques.
Civic and Christian leaders have backed the right of Muslims to worship freely, but they are also calling for increased religious freedom for Christians in Turkey.
While they're at it, they can also start "calling for increased religious freedom for Christians" in the entire Muslim world. Throw in a couple of churches in Saudi Arabia as well.

Judge Marinkovic: Racak was a Major Hoax

“I said it almost ten years ago, and I say it today: Racak was a major hoax! There was no ‘massacre of the innocent villagers’, but a legal and legitimate police action against the members of the terrorist organization of the so-called Kosovo Liberation Army”, Investigating Judge Danica Marinkovic told Glas Javnosti.
At the time of Racak setup, Danica Marinkovic was the investigating judge of the Pristina District Court (now serving as the judge in Kragujevac District Court), and a chief investigator of the event which took place in the Kosovo-Metohija village of Racak. This ugly hoax and the vile setup was orchestrated by Mr. Massacre, American CIA operative William Walker, who was sent to Serbian Kosovo province under the guise of the OSCE Mission chief, with a task to create a trigger event for the long-planned US-led NATO aggression and bombardment of Serbia which lasted almost three months.

Peace Laureate Ahtisaari endorsed terrorism

I was among a handful of people worldwide who criticised the Nobel Committee’s choice of former Finnish President Martti Ahtisaari as Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and characterized it as a scandal.
I had two main reasons. I consider his work as “peace mediator” – a term used repeatedly – in Kosovo incompatible with peace and with Alfred Nobel’s three criteria, but I deliberately did not mention his work in Aceh or Namibia of which I have no knowledge myself. Kosovo and other parts of former Yugoslav have been something I have tried to understand since my first visit there 34 years ago.

Ranta Rants

Several days ago, a Finnish online news source reported Helena Ranta, forensic dentist involved in Racak hoax, complained in her recently published biography she was pressured by the Western authorities to accuse the Serbs for the “massacre”.
Ranta also revealed William Walker, an American official stationed in Serbian province of Kosovo and Metohija in 1999 under the OSCE umbrella — notorious for being sent to stir problems in various parts of the world, rather than help calm the tensions — was so angry over her apparent refusal “to use sufficiently strong language” against the Serbs, that he broke the pencil at some point and threw the pieces at her.
Ranta’s story sparked a lot of interest in Serbia, since the Racak fraud was used as a justification and trigger for the US-led NATO bombardment of Serbia that lasted almost three months (78 days). Ranta was promptly interviewed by Vecernje Novosti, where she further explained Walker insisted she should tell the media that Serbs have committed a massacre in the village of Racak, and that the killed were not combatants, but “innocent civilians”.

Turkey: Journalist told murderers of Christians that they wouldn't be prosecuted

Islamization of Turkey Alert: "Turkey: Suspect In Malatya Murders Expected State Support," from Compass Direct, October 21:
MALATYA, Turkey, October 21 (Compass Direct News) – Lawyers and judges in the case of three Christians murdered here in April 2007 are continuing to investigate whether the attack was masterminded by troubled youths or shadowy elements of the Turkish state.
Plaintiff attorneys believe the first witness at the hearing on Thursday (Oct. 16), local journalist Varol Bulent Aral, incited the suspected ringleader of the attacks to murder by convincing him foreign missionaries were connected to the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK), a domestic outlawed terrorist organization. The suspected ringleader, Emre Gunaydin, testified that Aral promised him state immunity for the planned attacks.
Two Turkish Christians, Necati Aydin and Ugur Yuksel, and a German, Tilmann Geske, were brutally tortured and killed at a publishing house in this southeastern city on April 18, 2007.
Gunaydin, along with Salih Gürler, Cuma Ozdemir, Hamit Ceker and Abuzer Yildirim, who have been in jail for the past 18 months, are accused of the murder. They are all between 19 and 21 years old.
The court subpoenaed Aral for the last four hearings, but he failed to show at each one. The 32-year-old testified at Thursday’s hearing at Malatya Third Criminal Court under police custody since he was arrested on Oct. 2 for carrying a false ID.
Gunaydin said during the hearing that Aral had promised him state protection for the murders.
“He had promised me state support,” he said. “[Aral] should explain this to the court.”...

GERMANY AND IRAN -- THE RELATIONSHIP GETS COZIER STILL

By Paul Mirengoff
Germany's ambassador to Iran, Herbert Honsowitz, has told the Iranian government not to worry about Berlin's announcement that it will reduce trade with Iran. Honsowitz noted that German companies have utilized the United Arab Emirates as a middleman for more than $4 billion in trade. He added: "At present time the Economic Affairs Section of the German Embassy is working on taking the necessary measures to preserve and improve economic relations between the private sector in Germany and Iran."
Last month, Honsowitz was summoned to Berlin to explain why the German military attache attended Iran's annual military parade. At that parade, as would be expected, President Ahmadinejad promised to "break the hands" of invaders, amid banners that read "Israel should be eradicated from the universe" and shouts of "Down with Israel" and "We will crush America under our feet." The Wall Street Journal dryly observed that it had been a while since German military officers attended rallies that feature threats to Jews.
To make matters worse, the man who summoned Honsowitz to Berlin, German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, supported an anti-Israel conference in Germany not long ago. During that conference, Iran's former deputy minister of foreign Affairs stated that "the Zionist project" should be "cancelled" because it "has failed miserably and has only caused terrible damage to the region." Steinmeier had already been criticized by supporters of Israel for being too sympathetic to Iran. Thus, while German officials may miss future Iranian military parades, Honsowitz's assurances to Iran, coming not long after his confab with Steinmeier in Berlin, is strong evidence that Germany has no intention of taking serious measures to deter Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
As Michael Rubin argues, Germany's posture is "a shining example of why multilateralism does not work and why diplomacy will not be enough to stop Iran's nuclear ambitions." It's an example George Bush should ponder in the last months of his presidency, but one I doubt he will.

Kosovo and Metohija Wounds

Book titled “Shiptar Genocide of the Serbs in 20th Century”, published by Rasko-Prizren and Kosovo-Metohija Diocese, is a harrowing testimony about the genocide Shiptars (Kosovo Albanians) have been systematically committing in the entire 20th century, and which continues at present, Rasko-Prizren Diocese Press Department announced.
The book, preparation of which took three years, consists of 215 documents from the Rasko-Prizren Diocese Archives which, thankfully, was transferred from the town of Prizren only a day before a devastating March 2004 pogrom. Selected were only those documents which clearly and unequivocally attest the immensity of the crimes committed against Kosovo and Metohija Serbs in the last century, against their spiritual and cultural heritage, and their property.
This historical paradox, that one state’s national minority threatens a majority in its own state, is presented in five sections and corroborated with a number of facsimiles.

Kosovo Experiment: Return to Neocolonialism

“If in the summer of 2008 you set up the authorities that have a share in controlling little Kosovo in hierarchical order you get the following structure: at the very top you have the accumulated military power of KFOR, a Nato-led occupying force … Under it are the UN administration mission UNMIK and the two EU missions, the International Civil Office (ICO) and the European Union Rule of Law mission (EULEX). Then come the Kosovo-Albanian government and the Serb authorities in Belgrade which, in effect, represent their respective ethnic groups but are subordinate to the colonial structures that have multiplied since the unilateral [declaration of] independence.
“… UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon thinks it’s necessary to preserve the UN’s authority wherever possible by uniting two irreconcilable positions - the yes and the no to Kosovo’s independent state status - under the auspices of the UN. On the other hand Brussels is using this confusion to present the world with a fait accompli. The bureaucrats in Brussels would not let the trifling matter of the formal preservation of a UN framework under UN Resolution 1244, which recognises Serbia’s sovereignty over Kosovo, bother them.
“… [So] without further ado Europe has set its sights on establishing a colonial territory in southeast Europe.”

Bosnian Muslim Government Reformed the Nazi SS Division Handzar in 1993

By Carl Savich
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.
