Foto:BOSNIA From the 11th century, particularly as Arab power was waning, the Turks moved out into the middle-east eg Syria, Palestine and spread through Asia Minor (much of today’s Turkey) to North Africa and into the Balkans/Eastern Europe.And it's not just during Muhammad's era, or later medieval times, that militant Islam has savagely attacked neighboring cultures, either butchering "infidels" (non-Muslims) outright or converting them at the point of the sword. Jihad has always been a part of Islam.Jihad is an integral Islamic concept, built into its basic tenets and common to all Islamic activists, regardless of whether they regard themselves as followers of Wahhabism or not. Jihad, the holy war, is inseparable from the mainstream teaching of orthodox Islam from the earliest days of Muhammad’s career until our own time. It is therefore not an exclusive province of Wahhabi teaching and practice. A well known fact is that Islam is a totalitarian ideology that rejects democracy, personal freedom, and every other religion. Another front in the global Jihad. Bosnia is just one more area where the Wahhabis and al Qaeda are taking over. The real crime here is that the West has aided and abetted this.To anyone with some knowledge of the centuries long history of Serbian resistance to Ottoman domination, it was obvious that the return of any form of Islamic power in Bosnia-Herzegovnia would be rejected by Orthodox Christian Serbs. The five centuries of ‘harmonious and peaceful co-existence’ under Islamic rule, cited by Bosnian president Alija Izetbegovic, belong to the theological dogma of the perfection of the sharia and the dhimma. Before the first shots were fired, Alija Izetbegovic, proudly proclaimed in his “Islamic Declaration” (1974; republished 1990) that “there can be no peace or coexistence between the Islamic faith and non-Islamic societies and political institutions”: “The Islamic movement should and must start taking power as soon as it is morally and numerically strong enough not only to overthrow the existing non-Islamic power structure, but also to build a great Islamic federation spreading from Morocco to Indonesia, from tropical Africa to Central Asia.” For the Orthodox Serbs, however, this same period is considered one of massacre, pillage, slavery, deportation, and exile of the Christian population. In their eyes it was a regime which found its justification in the usurpation of their land and denial of their rights; hence it represented the EXACT OPPOSITE of a peaceful, multicultural coexistence based on a system of social and political justice. Kosovo and Bosnia –Herzegovina are the Orthodox Serbian homeland.............during WWII Axis forces invaded Yugoslavia and sponsored the creation of a Nazi Croat state (Ustashi) with which many Bosnian Muslims cooperated.....they formed military corps including the 13th (Hanjar) Waffen SS Division, some of which were trained in FRANCE. Early in the war, these Muslim slavs actively participated in the genocide of hundreds of thousands of Orthodox Serbs, Jews and gypsies. Even their German allies were shocked by the bestial atrocities committed then in Yugoslavia’. The European Union proposed a cantonization plan for Bosnia Herzegovina, not very different from the present arrangement, which was accepted by leaders of the Bosnian Muslim, Serb and Croat communities. But both these compromise agreements, which would have prevented war, were rejected by the Muslim party leader Alija Izetbegovic, encouraged by the United States. Throughout the subsequent fighting, the U.S. put obstacles in the way of every European peace plan. Without this US interference, there would have been no Srebrenica massacre, which occurred in the last weeks of the three-and-a-half-year war. Bin Laden himself was a known CIA asset stretching from the late 1970's when he was armed and funded by the CIA through the Pakistani ISI to lead the Muslim mujahideen against the Soviets in Afghanistan.After this, Bin Laden led Al-Qaeda to Bosnia shortly after the outbreak of war in 1992 to fight against Bosnian Serbs who were subsequently the target of NATO air strikes.Shortly before the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999, Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda moved into Kosovo, Serbia’s southern province, to aid the Kosovo Liberation Army/The report/, the Albanian terrorist faction that was being supported by the U.S. and NATO in its terror campaign against Serbs in the region.And the U.S. still supports an independent Kosovo state, a militant Islamic state, in the heart of Europe/Bin Laden’s Balkan Connections . I could go on and on; these incidents are hardly secret, and are well-known in Bosnia.Thousands of mujahedeen who fought in Bosnia went on to perpetrate murder and mayhem in many countries in Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, Asia—and the United States. Khalid Sheikh Muhammad—the infamous KSM, the senior al-Qaida operative who planned the 9/11 attacks—was a seasoned veteran of the Bosnian jihad, as were two of the hijackers. It should be noted that the Millennium Plot at the end of December 1999, the narrowly averted al-Qaida attempt to blow up Los Angeles International Airport, was planned by a cell of mujahedeen operating in Montreal, most of them veterans of the Bosnian war, and the operation was controlled out of central Bosnia.Compared to the Middle East or Southwest Asia, the Balkans have been relatively forgotten as a front in the West' war on terror. http://www.spiegel.de/international/europe/0,1518,516214,00.html http://www.balkanstudies.org/articles/jihadist-green-corridor-balkans http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/VIN204A.htm http://rpc.senate.gov/releases/1997/iran.htm http://assembly.coe.int/ASP/APFeaturesManager/defaultArtSiteView.asp?ID=964 http://www.kosovo.net/destruction.html ....What is this monument inscribed in Arabic script doing in Srebrenica (Potocari village), Bosnia? What is ex-president of the United States, Bill Clinton, doing here at the unveiling of this Arabic-inscribed monument dedicated to fallen al Qaeda Mujahedeen fighters in Srebrenica-Potocari, Bosnia? Why is Clinton bowing to this monument?.Among radical Bosnian Muslim elements, the Srebrenica narrative has been used not only to rally support to the general cause of jihad, to arouse Muslim feelings of having been oppressed and persecuted by non-Muslims, but to build what some have called the "first Muslim shrine in Europe," a gathering place for Muslims from the world over with anti-Western, anti-European and anti-Christian grievances. The Memorial Complex in Srebrenica now serves as a place of pilgrimage, where Muslims can see firsthand the results of what they believe is an unprecedented atrocity against their fellow believers.
The entire Srebrenica narrative has been provided key support by Western mainstream media, headed by the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal and the mainstream British, German and French media, who have laced their Balkan reporting throughout the years with references to the "Srebrenica genocide," calling it, among other things, the "worst atrocity in Europe since World War II," a "stain on the conscience of the West," etc....Unlike the Bosnian Serbs, the Bosnian Muslims enjoyed the services of high-powered U.S. public relations experts in the Washington-based Ruder Finn agency who knew how to "spin" the Bosnian conflict in order to equate the Serbs with the Nazis-the quickest and easiest way to win public opinion over to the Muslim side. The news media and political figures were showered with press releases and other materials exaggerating Serb atrocities, whereas Muslim atrocities (such as the decapitations of Serb prisoners, fully documented) remained confidential. To the public, this was a one-sided conflict between a Serbian "fascist aggressor" and innocent victims, all unarmed civilians.The hidden “Islamic jihad” in Bosnia was covered up, because this suited the needs of interested parties and it was not productive to show America, Alija Izetbegovic, Al-Qaeda, the global jihadist network and other nations working hand in hand. Therefore, the “Muslim victim card” was played up; history was re-written. The Serbians, who had been the victims of Islamic jihad under the Ottomans and then suffered so brutally under the Ustasha/Nazi/Islamic collaboration during World War II, were once more the victim. During the 1990s war, the media clearly sided with the anti-Serbian forces---namely the Croats, Bosnia Muslims and the Albanian Muslims of Kosovo. http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=James_Harff .................... http://whatreallyhappened.com/RANCHO/LIE/BOSNIA_PHOTO/bosnia.html ...................... http://sz2604-max.blogspot.com/2011/06/srebrenica-massacre-invented-by-bill.html .
