Although Kosovo set a terrifying precedent for Israel, at least two Jews are happy about it. In a recent Wall St. Journal-Europe piece titled Balkan Choice, Morton Abramowitz and Mark Schneider write that Serbian President Vojislav Kostunicas opposition to Kosovo independence risks making his country an international pariah.
Have these two been asleep for 15 years? Serbia has been a pariah since it began fighting Islamo-nationalist terror without the Wests permission. Serbs were the first ones fingered in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the ones bombed by Bill Clinton in 1995 for a Sarajevo marketplace massacre despite British intelligence warnings that a Bosnian-Muslim mortar was responsible. That other pariah state, Israel, is familiar with such frame-ups, and its no coincidence that Israel quietly aided Serbs militarily, aware of Islamic terrorist ties to the Bosnian army, including Palestinians operating in Bosnia.
When Israel confronts terrorism, its called self-defense. When Serbia does, its poisonous nationalism as a Washington Post editorial called it the same week ("Serbias Intransigence"). Quite strategically, the word Muslim appears nowhere in either article, lest the world finally catch on to what we achieved in the Balkans. Instead, the authors promote the term Albanian Kosovar, a flashback to the journalistic ploy that ensured a multi-national war against European Christians on behalf of Muslims.

Clinton Administration supported the "Militant Islamic Base"
He never got UN permission, I think he even blew off Congress in violation of the presidential act. He used the "mass graves" - ethnic cleansing reason for starting his war, claiming there were 200,000 dead in mass graves, which turned out to be 2000, 1700 of them were soldiers. The entire thing was a lie from day one. Meanwhile we've found 300,000 dead in mass graves, women, children, entire families executed in Iraq, and the dems scream impeach Bush. Liberalism is a mental disorder for which there's no treatment.
"Be Not Afraid, for You Have Sons in America". Stacey Sullivan.
"Kosovo: War and Revenge". Tim Judah.
"Kosovo: How Myths and Truths Started a War" Julie Mertus.
If you're looking for a good primer on the entire Yugoslav dissolution, "Yugoslavia: Death of a Nation" by Silber and Little is an excellent first read.
Like most things, your results will be based upon how much effort you devote to the task.
My favorite book o the entire Balkan break-up is "Fool's Crusade: Yugoslavia, NATO & Western Delusions" by Diana Johnstone: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/158367084X/sr=8-1/qid=1156450451/ref=pd_bbs_1/002-8177794-7226461?ie=UTF8
On video re Kosovo specifically: "The Brooklyn Connection". It is excellent and it is based on the Stacey Sullivan book "Be Not Afraid for You have Sons in America". PBS has run it, and it is availble at both Netflix and Blockbuster Online.
If you are looking online: FR has a lot of articles here under "Serb". The American Council for Kosovo http://www.savekosovo.org also has quite a lot. Julia Gorin is on the advisory panel for the American Council for Kosovo.
