18 Soldiers Wounded as Albanian Extremists Attack Church
ERPKIM ^ | 3/24/04 | ERPKIM

Posted on 03/24/2004 8:46:56 AM PST by Mark Felton

Eighteen KFOR soldiers have been wounded during an attack by extremist Albanians on the church of the Holy King Uros in Urosevac. A Greek soldier has sustained second degree burns and three KFOR vehicles have been burned, KFOR advised on Saturday evening.

In a detailed report of events in Urosevac on Wednesday afternoon, it is reported that a group of about 500 extremist Albanians attacked the observation checkpoint guarded by Greek soldiers in front of the church in Urosevac with rocks and Molotov cocktails.

According to a statement issued from the U.S. military base Bondsteel, during the course of the evening about 200 Molotov cocktails, 15 grenades and large quantity of rocks were thrown at the soldiers and the church. Three KFOR vehicles were set on fire and two were damaged.

The violent demonstrators, the report adds, attempted to break into the church but were stopped by the soldiers who withdrew into the church but the attackers continued to throw grenades and Molotov cocktails. The attack continued even after the commanding officer of the Greek forces ordered the soldiers to fire warning shots into the air to disperse the demonstrators, who numbered between 1,000 and 3,000.

The attacks continued even after a Greek rapid reaction force unit evacuated the soldiers from the church. The attackers continued to throw Molotov cocktails at the vehicles of the rapid reaction force unit and began to disperse only after U.S. forces began to drop tear gas from helicopters to ensure the evacuation of the soldiers, the KFOR statement says.

Announce that henceforth all riots will have "Shoot to Kill" orders.

Shoot to kill the rioters.

President Bill Clinton's administration was an active ally of the global socialists and tolerant of the Islamofascists. He had the same objective: to diminish the power and influence of Christianity and Judaism so it can be replaced by overt socialism.

This is why the Eurosocialists loved President Clinton, he was an ally.

This is why they are so vehemently opposed to President Bush. Bush has opposed Kyoto, the ICC, the reign of the UN etc etc. Bush has opposed growing the infrastructure of global socialism. Thus Bush is hated, absolutely hated, by these people.

It is WWIII. It is socialism/Jihadists versus Jews/Christians.

And the US government alliance is dependent upon whether Kerry or Bush is in office.

I would presume so. If it was extremist Christians, you'd see that fact reported in the headline, but extremists of any other religion (particularly the Religion of Peace) get a pass.

I have long tolled the warning bell about the islamo-fascist drive for global caliphate. It is only recently that I learned first hand what a close ally they have in the socialists.

About ten days ago I was out of the country on business. I had one of those impromptu conversations with strangers that often happen on trips like this. One of the conversants was a talented, educated Canadian woman. Her take on the bombings in Spain was, and I quote, "A beautiful thing happened in Spain last week". She said that she meant the results of the election but she acknowledged that the socialists won on the blood of over 200 innocents slaughtered by the terrorists. This was just fine with her, after all, the result was a "win".

What the heck is wrong with these Albanians?! We correctly saved them from Milosevic's genocide, and now they want to return the favor by these kind of hate crimes and human rights violations against Serbian Kosovars. What jerks!

What genocide? If you have proof, send it to ICTY because according to them, there was no genocide in Kosovo.

Also, you can show it to NATO general who said "we bombed the wrong side".

Kosovo campaign is the most shameful campaign of US Armed forces ever. No wonder, having in mind who was a Commander in Chief at the time.

Kosovo is lasting Clinton legacy, a gift that keeps on giving.

These America-haters demonstrate the same type of hate that Hitler fanned against the Jews.

It is happening again, in our time.

Crystalnachte was not a riot by the German military on orders of Hitler. It was an outburst by German citizens who were educated and prosperous.

The masses can be made to hate on behalf of the elite.

The socialists have been teachning people worldwide to hate anyone who would refuse the ascendancy of world socialism.

That is why we have teachers in American schools attacking and minimizing Western culture. That is why we have a UN dominated by dictators and despots.

The entry fee is not a commitment to liberty, it is a commitment to socialist rule.

>>>>>>What the heck is wrong with these Albanians?! <<<<<

Nothing wrong with them, Albanian extrenmists follow their standard procedure outlined in Prizren in 1878. They tortured and expelled Christians in Ottoman times, they did it as Waffen SS during Hitler's time, they did it during Bubba's time and they are doing it today. They are not hiding it, they are open about it. They want Kosovo to be cleansed of every other ethnicity. Also, they murder their own who oppose such nazi policy.

After 1999, extremists have murdered more than 1000 decent and honest Albanians, many of them dumped in the garbage dumps. While Serbs can speak of their murdered, no one speaks about Albanians extremist thugs murdered.

So, do not ask, what is "What the heck is wrong with these Albanians", ask

What the heck is wrong with these humanitarians who support Albanian terrorists"

Call your congressman to learn why U.S. still supports terrrism in Kosovo province.

UNMIK/PR/1151

Statement of UNMIK Police Commissioner Stefan Feller on the Shooting of Two Policemen

PRISTINA - Yesterday, 23 March, at approximately 9:45 pm, a police patrol in a marked UNMIK Police car came under attack with automatic gunfire along the Pristina–Podujevo main road. The attack happened when the police officers were carrying out their duties near the Shakovica village in Podujevo.

As a result of the attack a male international police officer from Ghana was instantly killed and a Kosovo Police Officer later died of gunshot injuries in the Pristina hospital. A language assistant also sustained gunshot wounds and is reported to be in a serious but stable condition in a hospital.

After Police returned fire, the attackers fled the scene by seizing two passing cars. They were chased by police reinforcement units that rushed to the area. During the incident one of the suspects was hit by police fire. Following the incident a thorough police investigation was immediately launched and police are following several investigative leads at this time. An international prosecutor has been assigned to the case.

During the subsequent search operation a body of a male with fatal gunshot wounds was recovered by the Police in a village in the Podujevo area.

This is yet another painful moment for the Police, when we have lost two more valuable officers to wanton and senseless violence. On behalf of the entire police fraternity, I convey heartfelt condolences to the families of our fallen colleagues. We wish early recovery to our friend who is currently undergoing medical treatment.

I do not wish to link last night’s incident with the riots in the previous week. But I must mention that an effort by certain groups of people to perpetrate public disorder in the last few days has contributed to promote an environment that potentially encourages criminal activities.

Let the death of these police officers be a wake up call for people everywhere in Kosovo. First of all, we must condemn violence, wherever it happens and in whatever form. Then each one of us must play a part in rooting out violence by identifying the perpetrators to the police and helping to bring them to justice.

KOSOVO & SERBIA: DESTRUCTION WORSE THAN INITIALLY BELIEVED, AND VIOLENCE SPARKS INCIDENTS IN MONTENEGRO, BOSNIA AND MACEDONIA

At least 28 people were killed, about 1,000 injured and 30 Serbian Orthodox churches and monasteries in Kosovo were destroyed during the recent violence by Albanian mobs against the minority Serbian population, KFOR and UNMIK units. Numbers are not yet final. The Serbian Orthodox Church is today demanding that German KFOR troops be withdrawn from duty in for "incompetence" during the violence, as they failed to save from destruction ten historic churches and other Orthodox property. Witnesses stated that the German KFOR troops did nothing to protect any of the sites. The diocese blames UNMIK for failing to protect its sites in the period from 1999 to before the present violence, during which 112 Orthodox churches were destroyed without any attackers being arrested. In Serbia, the authorities have arrested 120 people for the attacks against mosques in Belgrade and Nis, and religious leaders, political parties and the government have joined in condemned the burning of the two mosques. City officials have promised to refurbish the Belgrade mosque. However the Kosovo violence also probably sparked incidents elsewhere in Serbia, and in neighbouring Montenegro, Bosnia and Macedonia.

KOSOVO & SERBIA: DESTRUCTION WORSE THAN INITIALLY BELIEVED, AND VIOLENCE SPARKS INCIDENTS IN MONTENEGRO, BOSNIA AND MACEDONIA
By Branko Bjelajac, Forum 18 News Service

Fr Sava (Janjic), deputy abbot of the Decani monastery, has told Forum 18 News Service that the Serbian Orthodox diocese of Raska and Prizren will issue a strong demand to the KFOR international peacekeeping force that German KFOR troops be withdrawn from duty in Kosovo for their "incompetence" during the anti-Serb violence at the hands of ethnic Albanian mobs that broke out on 17 March. German KFOR units were assigned to protect Serbs and Serbian property in the town of Prizren, but failed to save from destruction ten historic churches and other Orthodox property - including a fourteenth century church, a monastery and six other churches, the bishop's residence and a seminary.

Fr Sava told Forum 18 that witnesses and monks from Prizren had told him German KFOR troops did nothing to protect any of the sites. Ethnic Albanians urinated on the remains of the destroyed churches in Prizren, and painted the slogans "Death to Serbs" and "Down with UNMIK" on one church.

At least thirty Serbian Orthodox churches and monasteries in Kosovo were burned and/or destroyed during the clashes between Albanian mobs and the minority Serbian population, KFOR and UNMIK units. Reports say that 28 people were killed and about a thousand injured, but the numbers are not final.

The diocese blames the United Nations administration UNMIK for failing to protect its sites in the period before the latest violence. "In addition to the direct perpetrators of crime, not only in the last several days but during the course of the past five post-war years, none of whom have been brought to justice, direct responsibility for the latest expulsions, murders and destruction of the precious cultural heritage under the protection of UNESCO is borne by UNMIK." the Orthodox diocese complained on 22 March. The diocese is daily issuing an updated list of destroyed and damaged Christian shrines in Kosovo.

Before the latest outbreak of violence, 112 Orthodox churches had been destroyed since the UN with NATO took over the administration of Kosovo in 1999. No-one who took part in any of these attacks has ever been arrested by UNMIK, KFOR, or the mainly ethnically Albanian Kosovo Protection Service.

"The silence from the expert world regarding the destructions in Kosovo is hurting," Mirjana Menkovic, president of Belgrade-based Mnemosyne, an organisation consisting of experts in the field of cultural and spiritual heritage and protection, told Forum 18 on 24 March. "I wonder what happened to their ethical code if their professional orientation is turned into some other direction." She reported that they had tried to initiate an international conference on the defence and protection of the heritage in Kosovo, but have not so far received a satisfactory answer.

"We in Serbia need to coordinate all of our efforts and knowledge, both governmental and independent expert teams, in attempt to save the remnants," Menkovic insisted. "There are international conventions regarding these sites, but they are not protected. We need to speak to our Kosovo Albanian colleagues regarding a shared responsibility and also about consistent respect for existing regulations."

The World Council of Churches and the European Conference of Churches declared on 19 March that churches and religious communities "must reject any attempt, from any quarter, to use religion as a motivating factor for conflict" and "should raise their voice to confront the new wave of violent intolerance and extremism".

"The thesis on the political churches in Kosovo failed," says Fr Sava, deputy abbot of the Decani Monastery, told Forum 18 on 24 March. "The idea that the Serbs under Milosevic built churches in order to expel Albanians does not stand up, because there are numerous churches and monasteries destroyed that are from the 14th, 16th, 18th and 19th centuries. The issue here is the systematic destruction of Orthodox sites in Kosovo and Metohija."

Reshat Maliqi, adviser to the mainly ethnic Albanian Kosovo police in Gjilan region, claimed on 22 March that only one Orthodox Church was burned down in the Gjilan region of seven municipalities. He claimed that the only church in the region that was burned was in the Varosh neighbourhood of Ferizaj [Urosevac]. He went on to say that "there were some efforts to burn down the church in Viti [Vitina], but fortunately only causing light damage, whereas the churches in Gjilan and Kamenice [Kosovska Kamenica] were not touched at all."

"His statement is misleading," says Fr Sava. "The church of St Uros in Urosevac was burned, after it was defended by the Greek troops. There were 18 of them wounded and hurt. The church in Kamenica was stoned, and the parochial home in Vitina was damaged. Also, the church in Varos was burned.

We still have a report about two small, local churches in Urosevac neighbourhood that we hear has been burned. We are still investigating it."

Alexander Birvis, president of the Association for Religious Freedom in Serbia, described the Kosovo church burnings as "a blow to religious freedom", stressing that freedom of religion "is also freedom to worship, to have religious festivals, to have religious sites, and also to have religious clerics performing rites". "Even a temporarily abandoned or closed religious site still represents a valid site," he told Forum 18 in Novi Sad on 23 March. "The destruction of such is an attack on people's religious consciousness, in this case of Orthodox believers. The destruction of a church represents an attack on a site, the religious rites performed there and the religious consciousness of the people. It also represents an act of desacralisation."

Meanwhile in Serbia, the authorities have taken action in response to the arson attacks on mosques in the capital Belgrade and the southern city of Nis. In Nis, the authorities have charged ten people under the criminal code with "organised vandalism" for the burning of the Islam-aga mosque in Nis during the night of 17-18 March. The attackers broke a lock at the entrance door, demolished the interior and set fire to the mosque, which burned completely. If convicted they face sentences of up to five years in prison.

In Belgrade, 110 people have been arrested for the burning of the Bajrakli mosque, but it is still unknown whether any will be charged with criminal offences. Due to the passive police reaction to the burning, Serbia's Interior Minister Dragan Jocic on 22 March fired both the Belgrade city police chief and his deputy.

All political parties, the government and public figures have joined in condemned the burning of the two mosques in Serbia. Belgrade city officials promised the Islamic faith community that the city will pay to refurbish the mosque, which survived two world wars and many other upheavals in the last centuries. Condemnation of the burning of the mosques also came from the nuns of the Pecka Patrijarsija convent in Kosovo. Bishop Joanikije of Budimlje and Niksic, who was at the convent during the clashes in Kosovo, quoted a nun as declaring: "Those burning mosques in Belgrade are doing no good to Kosovo."

However, during the period of 18-20 March, several more incidents took place in Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Macedonia, probably as an echo of the tragic events in Kosovo.

In Serbia, on the evening of 18 March, a Protestant Bible Cultural Centre in Nis was set on fire by Molotov cocktails thrown by a mob of about 30 perpetrators, the day after the mosque was burned in the same city. "This act of terror has caused fear and anxiety not only on the part of us who run this Centre, but also on the part of all who are in any way connected with it, including the neighbours," Obrad Nikolic, Church of God minister, told Forum 18 on 22 March from Nis. The Centre held a small book, audio and video library, held public theological lectures and showed Christian films.

The mosque in Oraovica, near Presevo in southern Serbia, was set on fire on 19 March, but the fire was extinguished and one perpetrator arrested, who was later explained to be a local Albanian with some mental problems. Damage was minor, with only a few books burned.

The Islamic faith community in Novi Pazar reported on 20 March that the mosque in Mali Zvornik was stoned, suffering broken windows, while Muslims in Loznica were not feeling safe after receiving threats. They asked for government protection.

In Montenegro, the Serbian Tanjug news agency reported that five minors were detained in the city of Podgorica on 20 March for allegedly threatening to set fire to the city's mosque and singing anti-Albanian songs. Police interviewed the minors and their parents before releasing them.

In Bosnia, the Interior Minster Mevludin Halilovic has condemned the burning of the Serbian Orthodox Church of the Holy Mother of God in Bugojno in central Bosnia on 18 March. He expressed his gratitude to city officials who reacted promptly to this incident. Police arrested several people in relation to this burning but no names have yet been released.

In Republika Srpska, the Serbian-ruled part of Bosnia and Herzegovina, on the night of 21-22 March, an explosive device was thrown at the entrance of the mosque in Orahova, near Gradiska, This mosque was destroyed on the same date in 1993, and was only rebuilt and reopened last year. The bomb caused minor damage to the facade of the building and all the windows were broken.

Local mufti Edham Camdzic did not rule out the possibility that the attack might have been against the return of Bosniaks (people of the Muslim faith) to this region, and that it may be unrelated to the Kosovo clashes.

In Macedonia, unknown perpetrators threw three petrol bombs made of beer bottles at the entrance door of the mosque in Kumanovo. Fortunately, only one of the beer bottles broke and, although a fire started, the building did not suffer damage. Police protected all religious sites in Kumanovo that night and opened an investigation.

Also in Macedonia, Skopje-based TV station A-1 reported on 24 March that two small churches, St John's and the Holy Mother of God, had been demolished near the village of Romanovce in the Kumanovo region of northern Macedonia. It is possible that the attacks were related to the attack on the Kumanovo mosque on 20 March.

With all due respect, they certainly are 'doing something' - they're running like scared rabbits from the muslims.

Many articles have been posted recently and all state that the NATO KFOR troops don't return fire, won't help the Serbs being massacred in front of them and just run like hell when the shooting starts.

And cr*ppy FOREIGN military 'leadership' like this is what Kerry wants to make our troops subservient too?!? I don't think so.

There are a small number of Christian Albanians, but as I understand it they were driven out of Kosovo early, along with the gypsies, most of the Serbs, and anyone else the Muslim Albanians disapproved of.

One thing for sure -- we are now engaged in a religious war where fanatical Islamics are on the offensive against the rest of the world.

yes. It is a religious war. It is a global civil war, and the battlelines are defined by ideology.

Ah, thanks. That's what I thought, though I didn't want to jump to conclusions without knowing. Why don't these reports tell it like it is instead of using words and phrases that muddle the story (but maybe it's just me)?

It seems like the wars that are going on now all have to do with islam.

There were lots of Greek mercenaries helping the Serbs torch villages and kill civilians in the '90s. So, what goes around comes around, not that that absolves the behaviour. Posting Greek troops there is like walking around black neighborhoods in Detroit at night with a members-only jacket and a confederate flag.

Apparently the UN is a much easier target than the U.S.

Civil war?

No way. Look it up.

Ours is an international religious war against Islamic fanatics.

baloney.
It turns out that Milo was doing Europe a favor.
Nato should have awarded him a medal.

America allied with the wrong side.
Islam is the wrong side.
It is also the firing pin on 20 out of every 25 worldwide hot spots at any given time.

Nato should realign with the serbs and the ruskies to finish off the terrorists that ARE albanian islamists... as well as the same group of thugs in Chechnya.

Siding with the muslims should have been charged as a war crime. this was clintongs war... and he joined an alliance with the devil to cover his oval office blow jobs...
