We torched everything! (transcripts of Kosovo Albanians)
By Zeljko Pantelic, May 16, 2006

Organized Albanian criminal groups involved in the sale of drugs, people, illegal immigration, etc. were behind the March 2004 pogrom against Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija. This conclusion follows from taped telephone conversations between leaders of Albanian mafia organizations which since 2003 have been illegally transferring hundreds of illegal emigrants per year from Kosovo to Italy, and who were uncovered by Italian police at the beginning of this week.

By wiretapping the conversations of Albanian criminals, investigating prosecutors in Bari, led by prosecutor Giuseppe Scelsi discovered that the killing of 19 Serbs, the expulsion of several thousand Orthodox Christians and the torching of their churches was pre-planned and orchestrated.

"Hell, torch all the churches," one of the mafia bosses ordered in a telephone conversation.

"We've already torched them all," his collocutor on the other side responded.

Several conversations were also taped in which the criminals vaingloriously called their friends to tell them they had torched the churches and to turn on the television so they can see the results of their work.

The Italian police operation uncovered several Albanian organizations from Kosovo which ran illegal emigrant routes with the help of tourist agencies, falsified documents and fictitious marriages. At the top of the Albanian criminal hierarchy were Jashar Bitiqi (35) residing in Treviso, who piloted the work of three tourist agencies which served as fronts for illegal emigration. These were the agencies "Jaha Tours" in Treviso, "Saba Tours" in Suva Reka and "Poluxha Tours".

There were three channels for illegally entering Italy. The first was Prizren (Suva Reka) - Drac - Bari - Treviso and the "ticket" for transportation to the Apennine peninsula cost 3,300 euros. Whoever wanted to legalize their stay in Italy could get a fictitious wife or husband with regular papers for 8,000 euros, and a valid residence visa as a family member. The second channel was a minor variation of the first; the disembarkation was in Brindisi, not in Bari, and the price ranged from 3,000 to 3,500 euros. The fourth route, from Kosovo through Macedonia and Greece to Ancona in Italy, was the cheapest at 2,500 euros.

Investigators also found a fourth channel for illegal emigration leading to Italy through Serbia, Hungary and Austria. The procedure was very simple: those interested in emigrating from Kosovo would pay the asked for amounts and in exchange receive false documents and visas. They would be loaded onto supposed tourist buses and enter Italy as false tourists, where would then illegally remain.



"Novosti" encloses a part of the transcript of the recorded telephone conversation between two Albanians, Hazer (H) and Muharem (M):

M: Hello
H: Hi, Rema, how are things going?
M: Alright.
H: You're still asleep?
M: Yes.
H: Why don't you ask your brother where he is?
M: Why, you're in Mitrovica, right?
H: No, I'm not in Mitrovica... We've torched all the churches in Prizren.
M: Hell, torch them all!
H: We've already torched them all, turn on the television so you can see them burning!
M: I just turned it on.
H: They're showing Prizren right now... All the church have been torched, not one is left.

In a conversation between Hazer and another, unidentified man (U), the latter appeared to be quite cautious and did not want to talk about torched churches by telephone:

H: - Where are you?
U: - At Bujar's.
H: - We burned them all, the bitches... everything is in flames, all of Yugoslavia.
U: - I know, I was there until just recently...
H: - You were there? And at that church...
U: - And the church was torched?
H: - The local church... I was proposing that we make an agreement... KFOR pulled back and a little later they told me we had torched it.
U: - Don't talk like that, you'll destroy us all.
H: - (laughs) Oh, why are you afraid, my brother.
U: - Leave it alone, you know they tap the phones. Don't talk [about this] over the telephone.
H: - Come on, don't worry...

Perhaps a moment of Serbian introspection is in order.

Dream on, Serb-hater. Serbia is being treated as a pariah nation in order to excuse the West's idiotic support of the Islamofascists in Bosnia and Kosovo.

Montengro has just served herself up as the next little Balkan state that can be pushed around by the Muhammedans with the West pulling on the kneepads and playing nice before them.

But I think you know how that's played better than the rest of us.

If I were white anywhere 9on africa, I would have left long ago. Particulalrly in south africa.

How about San Diego County? How about the border communities in Texas & Arizona -- where you own your home, your family has lived for generations, but the criminal element of another ethnicity try to take over and bully you out of your home? Beats up your priests, rapes your nuns.

If you wouldn't stand up for yourself, your family and your home, then someone needs to buy you a set of cajones, Cacique!

More violence in Kosovo | 11:11 May 26 | Beta

PRIZREN -- Several people were injured yesterday in an incident occurring between Albanians and UNMIK in the village of Mala Kruša.

In the village, located near Prizren, a group of Albanian women, whose husbands and children were killed in 1999, threw stones at a convoy which they thought was transporting Serbian refugees. The police and KFOR officials tried to calm the conflict by using tear gas. Ten of the Albanian women were taken to the hospital in Prizren because of tear gas poisoning.

According to UNMIK, in a statement release six hours after the incident, about ten people from the village blocked the road in front of the UNMIK police convoy. When the UNMIK officials tried to get the villagers to move, they were attacked with stones and rocks. UNMIK was accompanying two Serbian lawyers working on Hague Tribunal cases, not Serbian refugees as the attackers thought.

Three police officers and one translator were injured in the attack, and several more villagers were hurt while UNMIK was trying to clear the premises. All injured citizens were given first aid and medical treatment, according to UNMIK. UNMIK police commissioner Kai Vitrup said that an investigation is on-going and that UNMIK officials will be talking to villagers regarding the incident.

According to Albanian sources, over 50 villagers, mostly women and children were injured. Village elder Agron Limani told Priština reporters that the villagers thought that the convoy contained Serbian villagers who were entering the region to visit their homelands and cemeteries, which caused the violent reaction of the locals.

“The police used force and tear gas against the people. Many women and children were injured and a number of them were taken to the Prizren hospital.” Limani said.

On the first day of the NATO bombing of Serbia, March 25, 1999, Serbian forces entered Mala and Velika Kruša and killed more than 100 Albanian men.
