Wahhabi Rules: Islamic Extremism Comes to Bosnia ^

Posted on 05/02/2007 1:13:02 PM PDT by kronos77

It was a strange scene. Over 3000 followers of the radical Wahhabi current of Islam had come to the northeast Bosnian town of Tuzla to bury their leader Jusuf Barcic, who had recently died in a traffic accident. The coffin in front of the mosque was draped in a green cloth. Men with long beards chanted "Allahu Akbar": "God is great." As press photographers tried to photograph the scene, they were first cursed and then beaten. The police did nothing. "We did not expect there to be so many people," an officer told the newspaper Oslobodjenje.

Religious fundamentalism is on the rise in Bosnia-Herzegovina. There had not previously been any mass demonstration of this size. But the local media have for some time now noted a marked increase in the activities of the Wahhabi sect, which counts al-Qaida founder Osama Bin Laden among its adherents. Barcic's funeral in Tuzla on March 31 was yet another sign that Wahhabism in Bosnia had ceased to be a marginal phenomenon. According to Resid Hafizovic, a Professor at the Faculty of Islamic Studies in Sarajevo, the sect represents a "potentially deadly virus" for Bosnian Muslims.

An episode in February caused a particular stir. Jusuf Barcic and a group of his followers wanted to enter the venerable Careva mosque in downtown Sarajevo, in order to perform the Wahhabi prayer rites. For the first time in the over 500 year history of the mosque, the Imam had to lock the doors. Only the arrival of the police could prevent clashes between Barcic's followers and followers of the indigenous Bosnian form of Islam. Already last year, there had been a massive brawl in the town of Kalesija after the Wahhabis occupied the local mosque there and chased off the Imam.

-"..."potentially deadly virus"..."

Couldn't have said it better. And that's coming from one of their own.

Jusuf Barcic-—it’s good that a car killed him. I hope it was a Yugo.

Can’t wait for Wahabbi B.S. to arrive in Russia and China to create havoc there too.
Puttie and the Chi-coms need another pain in the rear.

Great, one of the worst strains of Islam is breaking out of the pack.

Knowing Russian and Chineese policy, Wehabbyi would be slaughtered in the matter of minutes.

Chineese response to Muslim treath:

A crack-down on suspected Uighur nationalists and independent Muslim religious leaders continued in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region (xuar _ see Amnesty International Report 1998). While violent clashes between small groups of Uighur nationalists and the security forces were reported, hundreds of people were arbitrarily detained merely for their suspected nationalist sympathies or for engaging in peaceful religious activities. Thousands of political prisoners were reportedly imprisoned in the region; many were tortured. At least 14 Uighur political prisoners accused of having used violence were executed.

Amnesty International.

Stephen Schwartz, Samantha Power, and Hoppy say:

1. Over 200,000 muslims were killed in "Bosnia", in a deliberate act of genocide by Serb invaders

2. Alija Izetbegovic was a pro-Western moderate

3. There are no Wahhabis in "Bosnia". "Bosnian" muslims are all moderate and secular, and are our best friends.

ALL three statements are contradicted by this article. They are all deliberate LIES, concocted to support the establishment of a base for the islamization of Europe and beyond!!!!

They are also having Wahhabis in southern Serbian province of Rashka (Turkish name Sandjak), which borders with Bosnia. Tha Wahhabi thugs are trying to impose "proper" Islamic worship in those provinces and recently there have been acts of violence. The Serbian police shot dead a local leader after a short firefight. I am sure it won't be the last.

This is how Kosovo started as well. It's a proven tactic, which the Albanians also used in what is now called Macedonia. Islam is a radical and violent religion. Unlike other faiths, which may be just as intolerant, Islam is blatantly aggressive.
