Albanians Celebrate 600 Years of Islam

"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.

Islamic Message

"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

So, how much of the spread of Islam was through voluntary association, and how much of it was "convert or die?"

Wrong.

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.

In Greece we know just how to welcome them and their message.

"Albanians and Bosnians EMBRACED Islam, they were upper class.."

I could see that happening in Europe and in the States. The leftist have tried to be ruling elite through leftist religions like communism and socialism, they've tried Buddhism, enviromentalism. Islam is better for rulers. That's why even though it's performance sucks, it has grown and existed so long.

US support for Islamic Albanians was just one example of past US support for Islamic regimes when we thought they needed help.

We even thought Osama bin Laden needed help. And how do these Islamic regimes that we helped look at us? As infidels and targets.

Professor Morina said the presented papers will be in four languages: Albanian, Arabic, English and Turkish.

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.

Remember Skanderbeg the Christian ally of the Serbs, who repudiated islam and fought the muslim Turk!!!! Skanderbeg was descended from the Serb family Kastriotic, several of whom are buried at Hiladar. muslim Albanians should stop trying to fool themselves and the rest of the world, and either return to Christianity or shut up about Skanderbeg!!!!

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!!!!

>>>>>Albanians, who make up about 90 percent of Kosovo's population of around two million people POST-Clinton. Far from so PRE-Clinton's ethnic cleansing.<<<<

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.

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......

Osama's being in Afghanistan had nothing to do with the US's involvement there, and he has said as much himself. He led a mostly foreign, Arab group of volunteers while the US supported the Afghans.

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.
