Posted on 03/05/2011 1:39:51 PM PST by Ravnagora
On March 2, two US airmen were killed and two injured, at least one critically, in front of Terminal 2 of the second continental Europes busiest Frankfurt Airport. Reportedly, the US forces were on the way to Afghanistan from their base Lakenheath airfield in England. The perpetrator was a Kosovar, the term invented by the western media. There is no Kosovar nation outside the media creations. There are a number of nationalities who live in Kosovo, i.e. Albanians, Serbs, Roma, Gorani, and others. None of them are identifying themselves as Kosovars.
The perpetrator, who fired nine times before his gun jammed, was identified as 21-year old Arif Uka, a Kosovo citizen of Albanian ethnicity. Family members describe Arif Uka, nicknamed Abu Reyann, as a devout Muslim, who was born and raised in Germany, and worked at the airport. His grandfather was a religious leader at a mosque in a village near Kosovska Mitrovica. He was radicalized including his chosen warrior name. His Facebook page was littered with hate-filled rants against Jews and a cry to Jihad: That is part of this beautiful religion. One is allowed to fight the unbelievers when attacked. He called Chancellor Merkel an unbeliever because of her support of Israel. He yelled a standard Islamist slogan Allah Akbar! (Allah is Great in Arabic) as he was murdering the American airmen. German prosecutors said that shooting was motivated by Islamic extremism.
Remember, the Ft. Hood massacre in November 2009? Major Nidal Malik Hasan, a US born Muslim, also yelled Allah Akbar as he fired over 100 shots murdering 13 Department of Defense (DoD) employees and wounding another 32. The 9/11 hijackers also yelled Allah Akbar as they were crashing planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Last year in Germany there was a high alert for a terror attack in response to the threat from Al Qaeda because of German involvement in Afghanistan. In 2007, the German police thwarted a plot to attack soldiers and citizens at the Ramstein Air Base by members of The Islamic Jihad Union.
In Washington, President Obama said that he was saddened and outraged. We will spare no effort in learning how this outrageous act took place and in working with the German authorities to ensure that all of the perpetrators are brought to justice. German Chancellor Angela Merkel condemned the shooting as a terrible incident. She also pledged a thorough investigation. The key question is if these investigations indeed are going to be thorough or amount to a whitewash? Investigations must address both the US and German foreign and immigration policies with associated mainstream media cover-ups of failures associated with those policies as well as root causes for the failure to prevent this particular jihadist act.
The Frankfurt Airport jihad is not the first time the Albanians were part of the international jihad. The 2007 Fort Dix plot comes quickly to mind. The institutionalized political correctness approach was used then by the mainstream media in order to cover up the identity of four conspirators. They were first identified as Yugoslavs. Of course the Serbs were Yugoslavs while Yugoslavia existed. Then the conspirators became Macedonians. While the three were Macedonian-Albanians, the fourth was a Kosovo Albanian, who belonged to the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA). The US authorities broke up a militant cell in North Carolina. In 2009, an Albanian-American from Brooklyn attempted a trip to Pakistan for terrorist training.
In Kosovo, Al Qaeda found a fertile recruitment ground. The population is the youngest in Europe, average age under 30, and Muslims constitute 80%. In my book Kosovo is Serbia, I reported that some 1500 potential White Al Qaeda terrorists (Albanians, Bosnian Muslims) were recruited. The western intelligence agencies were monitoring but shockingly disinterested. They didnt want to rock the boat. The threats were consistently downplayed by both the UN and NATO. A plot to kill US soldiers in the Bondsteel cafeteria was foiled but never reported by the media.
US Foreign Policies
The WWII and the Cold War are probably the most recognized foreign policy successes, which contributed towards positive image of Americas role in the world affairs. The Cold War turned the U.S. into the hegemon of the western world. The U.S. was the leader of a voluntary military alliance, the North American Treaty Organization (NATO). The American hegemony was fully accepted by the Western European allies. In the aftermath of the Cold War, the US has become the worlds lone hegemonic superpower starting with proclamation of the New World Order (NWO). The foreign policies have resembled behavior of not only hegemonic but in some cases of a rogue superpower. Most interventions have been in search of a global hegemony.
A drastic case is support for the Balkan jihads (Bosnia and Kosovo) since 1992 against the Serbian Orthodox Christians. Al Qaeda was the Clinton administrations partner in the Balkans. U.S. planes transported the mujahideen to Bosnia to fight Christian Serbs and Croats. As a result Bosnia became the hub of terrorist operations extending into Western Europe and North America, including 9/11. The Hamburg Al Qaeda cell, which played a pivotal part in 9/11, was recruited from Bosnia.
The military interventions have been dressed up as noble pursuits such as removals of despotic regimes, e.g.. the Milosevics regime in the rump Yugoslavia, i.e. Serbia and Montenegro. This was preceded with heavy doses of incessant demonizations of the Serbs as people, or even illusions of humanitarian interventions such as the one in Yugoslavia in 1999. The official version for the public consumption was: the US/NATO attacked Yugoslavia in order to stop genocide. There was no genocide, not even ethnic cleansing. It was simply a media lie. For the complete background, the author refers to two of his books: Kosovo Crisis: A Study in Foreign Policy Mismanagement and Kosovo is Serbia: The Amputation of A Sovereign Country by US-Sponsored Muslim Terrorists.
The Clinton and Bush administrations have used the KLA, a terrorist Muslim dominated organization initially supported by Osama bin Laden to amputate Serbia in violation of a host of international laws in order to create a Muslim dominated entity in Europe and thus appease the radical Islam. The KLA, during insurgency from Northern Albania into Kosovo, in order to fight the Serbian police relied on terrorism not different from methods used by the Hezbollah. The Hezbollah and the KLA are both the terrorist organizations. Despite its terrorist tactics Hezbollah has successfully recast itself as a legitimate political party. With support from the US/EU, the KLA did the same.
Following amputation of Serbia the next big objective was to create a Republic of Kosovo, which was self-proclaimed in 2008 and have been recognized by 75 countries out of 192 UN members. The KLA committed numerous atrocities over the Serbs, Roma and its own people who were characterized as collaborators. The western governments as well as the mainstream media covered up these grisly crimes until the Council of Europe (CoE) in December 2010 issued the report authored by the Swiss-Italian politician, senator and prosecuting lawyer Dick Marty. The report describes Kosovo rulers, led by the Prime Minister Hashim Thaci, as a network of organized crime, murder, extortion, trafficking in guns, narcotics, sex slaves, and forcibly organ harvesting. I have written three essays on the subject of organ harvesting: in April 2008 Bankruptcy of Moral Values: Butchering of Serbs Condoned by the West; in December 2010 Amorality of US Kosovo Policy: Friends with the Snake; and in February 2011 Grisly Albanian Organ Harvesting Crimes: Is Justice Going To Be Served, which was posted on the Modern Tokyo Times.
Mainstream Media Coverage
The Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) voiced criticism of the media. Despite the claims that the press has an adversarial relationship with the government, in truth US media generally follow Washingtons official line. This is particularly obvious in wartime and in foreign policy coverage, but even with domestic controversies, the spectrum of debate usually falls in the relatively narrow range between the leadership of the Democratic and Republic parties.
Self-censorship has become the common practice in the mainstream media to cover up the failures of the US foreign policies, in the Balkans in particular.
A Ticking Time Bomb
Arif Uka, Major Hasan and Khalid Aldawsari (Saudi student studying in Texas arrested by FBI for planning a terrorist attack on US targets using explosive chemicals) cases illustrate the risks the western societies are facing from Islamist lone wolf terrorists. The Islamic virus has not been confined to those born in the Islamic countries. Detection and interdiction of these terrorists is one of the most difficult tasks facing the law enforcement and intelligence agencies. There is only so much they can do. Hence, it becomes even more important to focus on the foreign and immigration policies. Chancellor Merkel at least recognizes that multiculturism utopia is a failure, while President Obama is telling Americans that their country is no longer a Christian country and that Islam is the religion of peace.

The Revenge Of The Prophet written by Dr. Vojin Joksimovich
Every Western nation that fails to admit that the enemy is islam!
Dry is good. Wind is better.
the satanic death cult islam, (no caps on purpose), of course.
Flash forward a quarter century. Two US servicemen are lost in a Muslim terrorist attack in Germany. A mealy mouthed child named Jay Carney speaks for the Muslim-appeasing, anti-American, military-hating Communist occupier of the White House and says, "It wasn't terrorism. S**t happens. Get over it."
We have 20 months, folks. If we fail to set things right in that period of time, we are finished.
Who? That would be “what.” The answer is simple: Islam.
The West supported Islam in the Balkans. But no matter what had happened in Kosovo, Muslims anywhere would still be attacking. That’s the nature of Islam.
Until we can admit that Islam is at its core fundamentally unacceptable to any civilized people, we’re not going to make any progress, and this will happen again and again until the entire world is under the heel of Islam.
Um, how about the religion called islam?
Silly Person....It was, the (Radical) Amish. /S...
did i place the Sarcasm mark correctly?
George W. Bush.
You are so right!
Yet another standard attempt, by a professional Serb liar, to abuse the fact that there has been a handful of Albanians among jihadists to peddle his Nazi lies.
Fortunately all Serba are not that impudenly mendacious;
in the tradition of Dimitrije Tucovic, there are many human rights advocates in Serbia who have been telling the truth about the Serbian leadership’s criminal tradition of conquest and extermination at the expense of their neighbors.
The perpetrator had been living in Germany, which is where he became radicalized. In the countries where they are a majority, Kosovo and Albania, the Albanians have successfully resisted radical islamism.
And many Muslim Kosovars are returning to the Catholic faith of their forefathers, to which both their national heroes —Scanderbeg and Mother Theresa— belonged.
All the Kosovars’ reaction to the murder, from government officials to individual comments of online newspapers, has been one of solidarity for the victims, contempt for the criminal and rejection of his motives.
(”Kosovar” is the Albanian word for Albanians living in Kosovo).
Amost all the Albanians have a deep adomiration and gratitude towards the United States, which have been saving them from political annihilation at least twice:
— when Woodrow Wilson saved half of the Albanian people and territories from foreign conquest by upholding the independence of Albania in 1912 and 1918 (the rest was stolen by Serbia, Montenegro and Greece), and
—when Bill Clinton saved the Kosovars from yet another Serb extermination attempt, which drove 800,000 from the land of their ancestors, and killed 12,500 in 1998 and 1999.
Such Albanian love for the United States was most conspicuous when President Bush visited Albania, and contrasts with the torching of the US embassy in Belgrade by government-sponsored Serbian thugs.
A father of one of the surviving airmen on that bus called into a local radio show on friday. He said his son told him that every airmen on that bus had a gun BUT NO AMMO!!!! yeah thats right NO AMMUNITION! He said if the murderer had an AK 47 he would have killed them all! despicable!
Who is calling who a liar here? First, that’s a violation of FR policy as a personal attack (”a professional Serb liar . . .” a charge I’d love to see you defend. I wonder how much Ravnagora gets paid).
If anyone wants to know why Islamists are free to roam the world and murder Americans, they just need to talk to you to find how someone can delude themselves.
The Serbs exterminating the Albanians??? Please. How many mosques were burned? http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/3525168.stm
The massacre at Racak had 45 confirmed deaths, not Clinton’s claimed 100,000. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/298131.stm
Between 200,000 to 250,000 Serbs have been forced from their homes by your terrorist heroes. http://www.internal-displacement.org/8025708F004CE90B/%28httpCountries%29/A6A36317DA8D29A1802570A7004CAB90?OpenDocument
What about the Fort Dix Six? Were they just poor misunderstood “kosovars” looking for the pope? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Dix_Six
There is only ONE multi-ethnic state in former Yugoslavia and that is Serbia.
Go spin your venomous tales on Democratic Underground. They’re stupid enough to think this Islamic terrorist is just a poor misunderstood Catholic.
Now, do you see how I proved you wrong without resorting to name calling? Since you have no facts, I realize you have to resort to ad hominems.
I also noticed that in your litany of good deeds by Albanians, you left out WWII. Weren’t they friends of America?
Would you please explain what most ethnic Albanians did in Kosovo during WWII? What was the Skenderberg SS Division? What government did the fascist Italian government create in 1941 and what ethnic group benefited?
Methinks your history is a tad selective. Muslims, whether Slavs in Bosnia or Albanians in Greece or Albania, have been nothing but trouble for Europe for over a millennium.
Albanians love Jews so much that they completely cleansed them from Kosovo.
The only true love for Albanians is crime.
“Ravnagora” is indeed a liar, whether he gets paid or not.
The Serbs tried to exterminate the Albanians whenever they could : 1912-1915, 1918-1941 (the Kosovars almost lost their absolute majority then), 1945-1966 (under Aleksandar Rankovic) and 1989-1999 (under Slobodan Milosevic).
András Riedlmayer and Andrew Herscher, of Harvard University, carried out a post-war field survey of damage to cultural and religious heritage in Kosovo in October 1999. They found... more than 200 mosques had been destroyed or damaged in “ethnic cleansing” operations by Serbian forces in 1998-99.
The massacre at Reçak did have 45 confirmed deaths, and no one ever claimed 100,000. The Serbs killed 12,500 in their last attempt at exterminating the Kosovars, which they started on February 28, 1998.
There were no more than 200,000 Serbs in Kosovo before June 10, 1999, and 130,000 have remained. They were the invaders, and those who left did so after their ultimate attempt to exterminate the natives had failed.
The radicalization of Muslims by the Wahhabis in the former Yugoslavia has been a failure in all the places where they are a majority, in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo); it has been more successful due to government interference in the upper Vardar valley of Macedonia and the part of Sanjak of Novi Pazar which Serbia invaded in 1912.
Kosovo is indeed monoethnically Albanian, and that is why Serbia has no legitimate claims on that country.
If Serbia remains multi-ethnic, it is not for lack of trying to extermnate its minorities: it is only because it has stolen Bosniak (the Sanjak), Albanian (the Presheva valley) and Hungarian (Voivodina) territories.
Kosovo during the Second world War was partly annexed to Albania (south of Vushtrri) and to Bulgaria (the Eastern Gjilan region).
France and Belgum also had their Waffen SS “divisions”, but no one calls all the French and Belgians “Nazis” for 3,000 who enrolled at the end of the war to fight the Communists.
The Skanderbeg “division” only fought the Partisans locally for a few months; il was not involved in ethnic cleansing (which took place spontaneously in 1941 and 1943) nor in the persecution of the Jews.
Altogether 40 Jews out of 600 were deported from Kosovo, none from Albania (nor from Bulgaria proper).
The Albanians hid their Jews and saved every one of them when the Germans took over from the Italians in September 1943.
Albanian was the only country under Nazi occupation which had more Jews at the end of the war than at the beginning.
Albert Einstein escapet to the United States through Albania.
George W. Bush did us a great disservice with his “peaceful, friendly religion of Islam” mantra in the wake of 9/11. At the time, I thought this might be have been the equivalent of someone being confronted with a snarling, aggressive large dog uttering “nice doggie!” while looking for a rock. Unfortunately, that was not the case, and the mushy thinking inherent in the mantra has permeated what little public debate there is on this issue.
