Islamist terrorists organizing in Bosnia
Al-Qaida may have an intact terror network operating in the Balkans, German security officials say. Sources within Germany's Bundesnachrichsiendienst, or Federal Intelligence Service (BND) told the German news agency DDP that both the Madrid terrorists, and some of those who perpetrated the London bombings, had "contacts with Bosnia," DDP reported Monday. The BND sources told DDP that European intelligence services had "vague indications that another terror cell controlled from Bosnia is preparing a new attack on London".
Muslim terror targets Europe
Muslim terror groups have targeted Europe as "the domain of war", the EU's counter-terror chief has warned. "The trend is clear. As was already apparent in the Madrid attacks and the killing of the Dutch film maker Theo van Gogh, Europe has become both a target and a source of terrorism perpetrated in the name of Islam," Gijs de Vries, the European Union Counter-Terrorism Coordinator said in a speech he delivered earlier this week in Israel to the Institute for Counter-Terrorism's annual conference. "No longer is Europe only a base of support for attacks carried out elsewhere in the world. European societies have become an integral part of Dar al-Harb - the domain of war," de Vries said. "The threat to Europe emanates from Europe-based Islamist networks as well as increasingly from unaffiliated actors: groups and individuals acting independently but sharing a jihadist ideology," he said. "The risk of further attacks in Europe -- and on Europeans elsewhere in the world -- is real and will probably remain high for years to come," de Vries said.

The Euro-idiots reap what they sow. Its too bad the poor Serbs had to pay. Now all of europe will pay!!
And Kosovo is peachy too. S\ for all.
The very words genocide, slaughter, mass graves are repulsive. But on the flip-side, the Clinton administration bungled it big time by bombing the Serbs into submission. True, the Serbs are bad actors. However, the Serbs should have instead, been sternly warned, and then let them finish booting the Muslims out of the Balkans...all the way out. The Americans simply don't understand the long, hard, deep feelings of the people in that region of the world, that stemmed from the invasion by the Ottoman Empire. Unimaginable atrocities were committed against the Serbs and Croatians for centuries by the Turks. And yes, now with the help of Clinton and NATO, Al Qaeda and terrorism will have a big foothold in Europe. With all the evil events that have transpired, It just doesn't make sense!
Yet you'll never hear a leftist complain that Clinton purposely bombed innocent Serbian civilians - he personally selected the targets, no less (remember his micromanagement of that campaign?) - even though that is by the most basic, straightforward definition a war crime.
Hear no evil, see no evil there must not be any evil.
Ottoman empire aside, in more recent history, the Muslimes eagerly assisted the Nazis in the killing of over one million Serbs in WW II.
The Ottman's invaded I believe in 1300/1400AD. If the Serbs would have just booted them, instead of ethnic cleansing, there wouldn't have been a fuss. What the Muslims are committing now in Kosovo, is the very reason Clinton, and Madeline Halfbright went ballistic. NATO, or no NATO, the Serbs have very long memories. Plain and simple, Kosovo will never be a U.S. Allie, but for sure, will be a springboard for Islamofascist terrorism.
Please. Were it not for Arkan and his boys sweeping through Eastern Bosnia the foreign jihadists would never have flocked to the Balkans in the first place. This "we're fighting radical Islam" story was first pitched by the Serbs during the 92-95 war and didn't sell very well for obvious reasons (ie Bosnians aren't radicals). Today they're trying again to a slightly more receptive US audience.
Remember the Bosnian Muslims and Croats always choose the outside invading force and fought for them (Germans and Austrians) during WWI and WWII.
Agree. The Serbs didn't go about it right in Bosnia and continued the same in kosovo. I still believe, had they booted instead of kill, they would have been successful. Booting will raise a few eyebrows, whereas, killing will always raise indignation and army's.
Further, what I think the United States doesn't understand, is that the UN, or NATO can be in Bosnia and Kosovo for hundreds of years, and the problem will not be forgotten, or solved!
And in Kosovo, the KLA initiated the violence, and even kidnapped, tortured, and killed Albanians loyal to the Yugoslav/Serbian government.
Muslim paramilitary, mafia, thugs, and criminals were active in threatening, terrorizing, and killing Serbs right on the brink of the war in both places.
Yup. And this time all they had to do was sit back and let the conduct of the JNA and Serb paramilitaries push the West into the Muslims' camp.
Just because you didn't read what they did in the mainstream media (which purposely blocked news of their crimes) doesn't mean they were sitting back.
The killing of Gardovic, carried out by the gang led by Ramiz Delalic (aka Celo), fanned the flames of tension but can hardly be called the opening shots of the war, or a Muslim offensive worthy of the kind of reponse it got from the Serbs.
Kosovo is another matter. The KLA did indeed start the fighting, hoping that the Serbs would lash out against civilians as they did in Bosnia in order to drive more people into the KLA's ranks. Same tactic Tito used against the Nazis and Ustashe.
It worked in both cases.
