"The main goal of the symposium is to shed light on how Islam spread in these territories based on undisputed historic facts," professor Morina told IOL.
PRISHTINA — The Islamic Community of Kosova (ICK) and the Faculty of Islamic Studies in Prishtina (FIS) will co-organize on September 16-17 an international symposium celebrating 600 years of Islam among Albanians.
"The main goal of the symposium is to shed light on how Islam spread in these territories based on undisputed historic facts," professor Qemajl Morina, one of the organizers, told IslamOnline.net.
Debates about this issue and the role of Islam among Albanians have never been addressed independently but were always colored with negative and ideological considerations.
Organizers hope the symposium will show the trube image of islam and its role among Albanians, which have hitherto been misconcepted.
Morina said it will also address the challanges facing Muslims in this part of the world. ...
Albanians are an ethnic group generally associated with Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia and Montenegro.
About half of today's Albanians live in the Republic of Albania, with the second largest group living in Kosovo, which has been a UN protectorate since a 1999 NATO bombing campaign forced President Slobodan Milosevic to withdraw his troops.
Albanians, who make up about 90 percent of Kosovo's population of around two million people, seek full independence.
"This symposium is being held at the very delicate moment whereby the relationship between East and West is getting tense," said professor Morina.
He added that Albanian Muslims have the duty to "carry the Islamic message decently to our nation and also to other neighboring countries."
"This should be the key message of this symposium which we believe will be carried out successfully."
Professor Morina said that though focussing on Islam

By now, most of you know that Im Serbian guy that preches understending anog Americans and Serbs, that I in my homeland, Serbia preac that Americans and Clintons are two different thing. Well, Clintons are thing, anyway, and that Serbs should not hate Americans due to the fact that USA led by Clintons destroyed Serbia in their support to Islamofascism of Albanians.
This article is in purest form explenation of who were and still are you fighting for on kosovo- The Albanians, Islamofascistic bastards. So, theese are the guys that you have ben killing Christians serbs for.
And again, I blame it on Clintons, their idiotic policy that led into murder of 3,000 americans on 9/11, and I dont blame Americans, not after 9/11
Hoppy, where are you?
Thanks Kronos. Information like this is key to understanding.
Hoppy is busy praying at the mosque
I belive that he awaits new orders from his master(s).
Master(s) is (are) voice(s) in his head that keep saying allah akbar...
Wesetern medicine calls it ilness...
So, how much of the spread of Islam was through voluntary association, and how much of it was "convert or die?"
The graves will tell...
600 years of Islamic slavery, WOO-HOO!!
What's to celebrate?
Albanians and Bosnians EMBRACED Islam, they were upper class, masters to the Serbs, bulgarians, Macedonians and eaqual to turkish occupators. They were masters of Christian slaves.
They are not enslaved by islam and Alqaeda, they ARE Islam and Alquaeda.
"He added that Albanian Muslims have the duty to "carry the Islamic message decently to our nation and also to other neighboring countries."
In Greece we know just how to welcome them and their message.
Where is Slobodan now that he is needed.
......Clinton once again backed the wrong horse.
What??? Celebrate poverty, social chaos and alienation from the rest of the world?
We even thought Osama bin Laden needed help. And how do these Islamic regimes that we helped look at us? As infidels and targets.
They don't even present in the language of the country!!! But it would appear that we must have a lot of Arabic speaker in Kosovo!
Hopefully Serbian Muslims will figure out what's in store for them.
... Unfortunately, as the celebration was deemed un-Islamic, the participants were beheaded.
POST-Clinton. Far from so PRE-Clinton's ethnic cleansing.
Clinton murdered Christians who were just trying to get a handle on muslim terrorism in the most evil and stupid and arrogant and meaningless war the west has ever fought.
The birds at this bogus "celebration" obviously want to spread islam by dawa and jihad. They are islamists, and are part and parcel of the terrorist enemy!!!!
This link works better. Albanian Per capita GDP ranked 104 right behind Jordan.
San Jose, CA. Like it says on my homepage.
You shouldn't be worrying about me, Kronos. You've got issues with folks much closer to home.
Ask Steve Centani
Was Tom Ridge there? As it appears that our ex-Homeland Security Chief has left us to join the enemy!
Always keep an eye on the Balkans folks! It will tell you more about dirty politics & failed foreign policies than you ever want to know!
No... Im Red Star fan myself
Nenad Canak is actually Soros funded "successionist" in Vojvodina, and hoplds some 2 (two)% of votes. Actually citisens of Vojvodina want to dissband authonomy and completly integrate into Serbia. (75% population are Serbs and largest minority of 20% are Hungarians, that are mostley pro-Serbian)
True, today's ethnic composition of Kosovo where 90% are Albanians is the direct result of Clinton bombing campaign and subsequent occupation of Kosovo when 300,000 Serbs and Roma were ethnically cleansed in the presence of NATO troops and unknown number of Albanians from Albania settled there.
But, when someone look at the MSM reports written BEFORE 1999 , the same guideline "Albanians, who make up about 90 percent of Kosovo's population of around two million people seek independence" also appear, although it is not true. (If 300,000 Serbs and Roma left Kosovo and 100 000 remained, this is 400 000. This means that before bombing campaign there was no more than 80% of Albanians in Kosovo, many of them illegal settlers from Albania.
This lie can mean only one thing: NATO bombing and subsequent ethnic cleansing of Serbs and Roma were planned from the outset of the crisis. The orchestrated cries of "genocide" and "etnic cleansing" of Albanians through NGOs and media was only smokescreen to cover the real intention of NATO, to ethnically cleanse Serbs from Kosovo and erase all traces of Serbian culture.
The eradication of Serbian culture in Kosovo (more than 150 ancient churches and monasteried destroyed, or 90%), destroyed and erased graveyards, hamlets and villages is genocide according to genocide convention so it is fair to say that NATO aids and abbets genocide of the Serbs.
While I do not doubt that he is once again on his knees at the mosque, I don't think he is praying.
He is, he is... well, some of them are on all four... as you said... not for praying.
Clinton is responsible for setting up and allowing the cleasning of Serbs from 1999 to 2004....I know because I was there in Gnjilane, and also talked to U.S. low level commanders, (Lt to Major). behind closed doors and listened their disgruntlment that we supported the wrong side from the start. As a matter of fact, we stirred up the trouble starting in Bosnia pre-1992.....fact......
When we thought it was better to have bin Laden in Afghanistan than the Russians.
You are right, we weren't really dealing with Osama. I remember the Northern Alliance who were supposed to be the good Islamic warlords, and the Taliban I suppose in the South who were the bad Islamic warlords. All of them were "mujahideen" who at least agreed that the Russians should be run out. And in case anyone doubts how tough these warlords are, remember they DID run the Russians out.
No doubt fleeing from their own government, which was the last place west of Belarus to stay communist and was the first state to take a national social security Ponzi scheme all the way to its logical end of befuddled national bankruptcy. Don't give such another state until they prove they can fix their own state.
