Wahhabists To Persecute Serbs From Kosovo

Bosniak mahala locals are convinced that the wahhabists are planning to persecute Serbs from the settlement and entire Kosovska Mitrovica.
An armed group of some 30 wahhabists, Muslim fundamentalists, have been patrolling the Bosniak mahala, a settlement with mixed population in the centre of Kosovska Mitrovica.
Armed with guns, they patrol the streets at night and ID Serbs from the Bosniak mahala, right next to the Kosovo police and KFOR soldiers, the Kurir Serbian daily writes.
Wahhabists recruit heroin addicts who were treated in mosques in the Southern part of Kosovska Mitrovica. The group leader is Ekrem Avdiju, commander of the Abu Bekri Sidik group and the most influential wahhabist in the Balkans. They receive funs from the Curuma organisation, which acts in Kosovo and is based in Pakistan.

Analysis: EU-funded Palestinian NGO leading the 'Spanish inquisition'

The case in Spain against Israeli officials, which stems from the 2002 air force attack that destroyed the home of a senior Hamas terrorist and killed several of his children, is based on the universal jurisdiction provisions in the legal systems of a number of democratic countries.
While designed to bring heinous dictators to justice, "lawfare" - as this tactic has been dubbed - is exploited by non-governmental organizations that use the façade of universal human rights to promote their political goals.

Erdogan gets hero's welcome in Istanbul

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan received a hero's welcome upon his return to Istanbul on Friday following his public spat at the World Economic Forum in Davos with President Shimon Peres over the fighting in Gaza.
The Turkish leader was warmly greeted as some 5,000 supporters waving Turkish and Palestinian flags flooded Istanbul's airport when his plane touched down before dawn.
Some outside of the airport gate held banners that applauded his Palestinian stance in Davos. "The conqueror of Davos," one banner read. CNN television said extra buses were put on duty so more people could turn out to welcome him.

Turkey's PM urges Obama to "redefine terror and terrorist organizations in the Middle East"

Erdogan wants Obama to declare that Hamas and Hizballah are not terrorist groups. That would be fine with me, in fact. The State Department should designate them and others to be jihadist groups, and declare that we are fighting a defensive war against Islamic jihadists.

Turkish PM leaves stage during debate with Peres over Gaza

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan stalked off the stage at the World Economic Forum red-faced after verbally sparring with President Shimon Peres over the fighting in Gaza.
Erdogan was flustered after he tried to speak as the scheduled session was ending at the forum in Davos, Switzerland, asking the moderator, Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, to let him speak once more.
"Only a minute," Ignatius replied.
Erdogan said that "I remember two former prime ministers in your country who said they felt very happy when they were able to enter Palestine on tanks," he said in Turkish.

Activists demand Siemens halt Iran trade

Can the Koran be compared to 'Mein Kampf'?

Last week the Amsterdam Court of Appeal ruled that the attorney-general should bring a case against Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders. This leader of the right-wing Freedom Party has made a number of extreme remarks about Islam and Muslims, such as calling the Koran the "Islamic Mein Kampf" and referring to "fascist Islam." The Amsterdam court contends that these and other such statements "affect the dignity of Muslims." The attorney-general's office had previously concluded that these and similar remarks were not punishable.

Kosovo Albanian Terror Continues Unabated

In the southern Serbian province of Kosovo and Metohija hardly a single day goes by without a violent incident in which the province’s remaining Serbs are victimized. The latest attacks took place in the KLA/NATO-made ghettos for Serbs — graciously called “enclaves” by the Western MSM — Gračanica and northern part of Kosovska Mitrovica.
On Friday evening, 70-year-old Vojin Aleksić from Gračanica was attacked and robbed in his own house. Despite numerous blows to the head and chest, broken right arm and leg, and the fact he lost a lot of blood, doctors at the Intense Care unit of the Serbian hospital “Simonida” have succeeded in saving his life and his condition is now considered stable.
A group of five Albanians wearing masks broke into Aleksić’s house, located only some 50 yards from the NATO checkpoint securing Gračanica monastery, took his savings after beating him up and left him for dead.

Bad News from Europe: Nazi Methods in Court

The Dutch judicial authorities are going to prosecute Geert Wilders, one of the 150 members of the Dutch Parliament, for making the movie Fitna. In this short documentary, which explains what happens if a number of verses of the Koran are taken seriously, Mr Wilders compares the Muslims’ holy book to Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf. He claims the Koran calls for violence against Jews and other non-Muslims. Fitna can be seen here.

Massacre of Yugoslav Army Conscripts Approved by Sarajevo

On May 15, 1992, Bosnian Muslim paramilitary troops, aided by the local officials, used snipers to ambush and attack Yugoslav Army convoy while it was attempting to withdraw from the territory of then-Yugoslav republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina. As a result, up to 200 JNA conscripts were killed, 33 were wounded, 140 were imprisoned and tortured, many of whom were handed back to their loved ones in the body bags later on. For some, this atrocious war crime signaled an actual start of the Bosnian civil war (1992-1995).
At the trial of Croat Ilija Jurišić, indicted for ordering attack on the convoy of Yugoslav People’s Army (JNA) conscripts during their scheduled retreat from Tuzla in May 1992, Deputy Chief of Military Security at the time, Marko Novaković, who testified on January 16, said that the attack “never could have been carried out without the express approval of the Bosnian Muslim supreme command in Sarajevo.”
In a case known as the Tuzla Column massacre, trial before the Belgrade District Court War Crimes Chamber to Ilija Jurišić continues to provide solid evidence that the coldblooded massacre was ordered and coordinated at the very top of Bosnian Muslim leadership.

Wilders expects to be sent to prison

Outrage: "Dutch Lawmaker, Charged With Insulting Islam, Fears Prison Sentence" by Joel Mowbray for FoxNews, January 22 (thanks to Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi):
A member of parliament in the Netherlands who has been charged with "insulting" Muslims says he fears he will be found guilty and sent to prison in only a few months.
An appeals court on Wednesday overturned a previous decision by prosecutors not to charge Geert Wilders, and ordered that he stand trial.
"The decision of the court today was so strong that there is a real chance unfortunately that there will be a guilty verdict," Wilders told "In fact, it was so bluntly motivated that it already looks like a verdict instead of just ordering the public prosecutor to start a trial."

It's a start. Much more must be done, and will be done.
To: The Dutch Government
WHEREAS Geert Wilders has exercised his fundamental human right of freedom of expression and spoken out, with facts and evidence, of the threat posed by radical Islam;
WHEREAS certain elements within Islamic communities have threatened a boycott of Dutch goods if Geert Wilders is not punished by the Dutch government for exercising his freedom of expression; and
WHEREAS certain elements in Dutch industry and the Dutch government are suggesting that Geert Wilders be prosecuted civilly or criminally, in order to prevent such a boycott;
IT IS RESOLVED that, in the event that the Dutch government attempts, in any way, to punish or prosecute Geert Wilders, civilly or criminally, for exercising his freedom of expression, the undersigned will initiate a boycott of any and all Dutch goods.
Sign here.

Dutch court decided to prosecute Wilders over Fitna after complaints from nine people

Ever think that one individual or one small group can't make a difference? Consider this: nine people in the Netherlands could be responsible for the final extinguishing of the freedom of speech in the West.
Conceivably, then, nine others could defeat the enemies of free speech and roll back the jihad.

So, Who is Ready and Set to Rule USA and the World?

A wrong answer: an unknown African-American, former street organizer who made his way from Trinity Church in Chicago to becoming an Illinois senator and the Democratic party candidate for President of the United States, who will give the power back to the people and “change the culture in Washington”.
Correct answer: Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission and Bilderberg Group.
The Council on Foreign Relations, also known as David Rockfeller’s private think-tank, was formed in 1921, purpose of which, right from its inception, was to curb and eventually destroy the freedoms and independence of United States, and to lead the country into a one-world government.
Right from its beginning, in 1921, the CFR started to attract men of power and influence, getting the bulk of its financing from Rockefeller and Carnegie Foundation already in the 1920’s. In 1940, at the invitation of President Roosevelt, members of the CFR gained domination over the US State Department, and they have maintained this domination ever since.

Purported al-Qaeda jihadist threatens Germany: "It has been my wish to blow myself up for Allah since 1993."

Markale Setup for Kosovska Mitrovica

According to the Serbian intelligence report, Priština-based Albanian secret service ŠIK is preparing a series of staged terrorist attacks in Bošnjačka Mahala settlement in Kosovska Mitrovica, aimed at generating sharp reaction from international institutions and thus insuring deployment of the Albanian special troops, consisting of former members of terrorist KLA. Prepared scenario involves bombing attacks against ethnic Albanian families residing in this part of town, for which the Serbs will be blamed, like in the recent bomb attack on Albanian-owned restaurant in the same part of town, which served to stage an attack on Serbian firefighters, who responded the call to put out the fire.

Hamas, Hezbollah and Al-Qaeda: 21st Century Fascists

Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference
Hamas, Hezbollah and Al-Qaeda are not political extensions of an ethno ideology contextualized within the framework of a religious narrative. These groups represent nothing more and nothing less than an unbridled commitment to murder, destruction and terrorism. Accordingly, the prophets and ministers of this hybrid religious/political cult preach from the canon of fear and chaos, vociferously advocating the message of religious totalitarianism. This belief system adheres to a strategic plan addressing four specific tactics:

STOP THE BOMB criticizes Nabucco, Petrovic condemns deals with Iran
The STOP THE BOMB coalition, speaking out against doing business with the Iranian regime, wishes to express its appreciation of the statement by Foreign Minister Michael Spindelegger during the ORF Press Hour on Sunday. Mr. Spindelegger expressed his opposition to finalizing a contract between OMV and Iran in the current situation, hinting at the Austrian government’s dwindling support for the planned billion Euro deal with the Iranian regime. However, STOP THE BOMB spokesperson Simone Dinah Hartmann criticises Spindelegger’s endorsement of the Nabucco project: “If now is not the right time for the billion Euro deals of OMV, why does Spindelegger support the Nabucco project, which could not be operated profitably without Iranian natural gas?”

Netherlands: "Moderate" Muslim pol calls for Muslims-only district of Amsterdam

Here we see the next phase of the stealth jihad: first Muslims push for special accommodation of Islamic law, even when it is at variance with the law of the country they are in. Then there often follow demands that non-Muslims also conform to Islamic sensibilities -- cf. the attempt to compel a British supermarket demanding it stop carrying alcohol. Then comes, here, a demand for a separate Muslim enclave -- and of course, such enclaves already exist all over Europe.

German police ban Israeli flags

BERLIN - German police officials in the cities of Duisburg and Düsseldorf, located in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, prohibited pro-Israeli supporters from displaying Israeli flags.
During an anti-Israeli demonstration organized by the radical Islamic group, Milli Görüs, which attracted 10,000 protesters last Saturday in Duisburg, two police officers stormed the apartment of a 25-year-old student and his 26-year-old girlfriend and seized Israeli flags hanging on the balcony and inside a window.

“At this moment, 91 Dutch Army veteran, member of the battalion stationed in Srebrenica in 1995 is ready to tell the whole truth about the events in that enclave and thus defend Radovan Karadžić,” said Aleksandar Gavrilović, founder and president of the association Serbian Research from Netherlands.


Wiesenthal Center Los Angeles
Jerusalem- The Simon Wiesenthal Center today welcomed the apology of Duisburg Police President Rolf Cebin for the removal by the police of Israeli flags in a private dwelling during Saturday's anti-Israel demonstration in his city, but expressed "deep concern" in the wake of increasing evidence that local police in several cities in Germany, such as Duesseldorf and Mainz, have begun treating Israeli flags as "provocations" which have led to the confiscation of flags and the harassment of pro-Israel demonstrators.In a statement issued in Jerusalem by its Israel director, Dr. Efraim Zuroff, the Center emphasized that such a policy would not only encourage increasingly-aggressive and violent behavior by those opposing Israeli policies but also constituted a clear limitation of freedom of expression only on one side of the political debate and therefore was clearly unfair to those supporting Israel.
According to Zuroff:
"The worst way to deal with demonstrators who might threaten the safety of their opponents is to appease them by harassing or mistreating those with opposing views. By doing so, the German police are sending a dangerous message to Israel's many supporters in Germany, whose legitimate efforts to defend the Jewish state have now been cast in a negative light. Such a policy reflects very poorly on German democracy and casts a shadow on the viability of Jewish life in Germany today".

Wiesenthal Center Denounces Cowardly Behavior of German Police in Response to Antisemitic incident

Wiesenthal Center Los Angeles
Jerusalem - The Simon Wiesenthal Center today denounced the cowardly behavior of the German police in the city of Duisburg who in response to violence by anti-Israel protesters entered a private home and removed an Israeli flag hanging in the window. In a statement issued in Jerusalem by Israel director Dr. Efraim Zuroff, the Center denounced the behavior of the Duisberg police as "cowardly" and "incomprehensible" and clearly biased against Israel.

According to Zuroff:
"Can anyone imagine the German police going into a private home to remove a Hamas flag? This type of response will only encourage more aggressive and violent behavior by anti-Israel demonstrators and send the message that in Germany, Jews and supporters of Israel do not enjoy the full protection of the law".

Third Balkan War on the Horizon

If the UN and the EU fail to seriously address the issue of Albanian land-grabbing terrorism, the malignancy will spread and grip not only all of Serbia but the entire Balkans. Albanian separatist-terrorist movement will not be satiated with the secession of Kosovo and Metohija province from Serbia, but it will extend its tentacles to rob parts of FYR of Macedonia, Montenegro, Greece and south-eastern Serbia. That will inevitably lead to armed conflicts, which is an introduction to the Third Balkan War. History has shown that the borders in the Balkans were never changed by peaceful means, but through the long and difficult wars.
This bleak projection was expressed in the interview given to Revija 92 by Professor Dr. Radoslav Gaćinović, scientific advisor to the Institute for Political Studies in Belgrade and the international terrorism expert.

Albanian Terrorists Attack Serbian Part of Kosovska Mitrovica

Series of explosions shook the Serbian part of town of Kosovska Mitrovica (province of Kosovo and Metohija), starting around 11 p.m. on Friday and continuing during Saturday night. According to media reports, Kosovo Albanian terrorists had thrown hand grenades at the Serbian coffee shop near the bridge over Ibar river (which separates predominantly Serb-populated northern part of town from the southern, ethnically purely Albanian part of Kosovska Mitrovica).
As the firefighters arrived to put out the fires, there was a second explosion in which six firefighters were hurt. One of the injured firefighters said they received a call just after midnight to put out the fires in the coffee shop and, as soon as they arrived and stretched out the water hoses, they were struck by an explosive device.
