Kosovo to honor Bill Clinton with statue
http://www.reuters.com/article/topNews/idUSL2316200920070523 ^

PODUJEVO, Serbia (Reuters) - Kosovo Albanians plan to honor their "savior" Bill Clinton by erecting a statue of the former United States president in the capital of Serbia's breakaway province.

The three-meter (10-foot) tall monument is still under construction in a studio in Podujevo north of Pristina.

"He is our savior. He saved us from extermination," sculptor Izeir Mustafa told Reuters. "I was thrilled by the work because I know what he did for us."

Kosovo has been under U.N. administration since 1999 after 78 days of NATO bombing ousted Serb troops who had killed some 10,000 ethnic Albanians in an 18-month counter-insurgency war against Albanian separatist guerrillas.

Ninety percent of Kosovo's 2 million people are ethnic Albanians. They expect to get their own state in the coming months with U.S. and European Union support, despite the opposition of Serbia and its main ally, Russia.

So good ole Bubba Clinton is going to be honored with a statue in the place where he allowed, or rather encouraged, Islamofacism to get its foothold in Europe. Very telling indeed.....

Two years after the Bosnian civil war, a town that is slowly rebuilding itself must whip together a democracy when it’s announced the U.S. President Bill Clinton might be paying a visit.

Hoppy, Fusion, or mark, most likely.

Of course, Reuters reports this, but ignored the story of Reagan being honored with a statue in Poland.

Didn't hear about that one, did you?

...and his other hand grabbing at his crotch.

Having Uncle Sam bent over in front of him would be the most appropriate display.

Is Marc Rich going to pay for this statue? Or one of the Boy President’s other rich criminal friends? And how much will Clinton get from this? You know he’s going to get something: he don’t move his butt without monetary enticement.

This statue is a monument to failure.

They might as well erect a statue to honor jimmy carter’s brillian iranian policies too.

The Albanians are the largest ethnic group in Kosovo, a Serbian province ... The most widespread religion among Albanians in Kosovo is Islam

Kosovo’s top Islamic leader asks local Muslims for support
April 27, 2007

BY NIRAJ WARIKOO

FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER

The top Islamic leader of Kosovo spoke to Muslims in metro Detroit today, asking them to support the independence of his province.

Mufti Naim Ternava, president of the Islamic Community of Kosovo, is in Michigan as part of a visit to the U.S. to garner support for making Kosovo an independent country. The Muslim-majority province is currently a part of Serbia.

“Pray for the independence of Kosovo,” Ternava said through a translator during the Friday sermon to about two hundred Muslims at the Muslim Center of Detroit on Davison Ave. “Thousands of miles away from here, there are Muslim brothers in Kosovo who suffered for many, many years and who are close religious brothers with you.”

Critics of Kosovo’s independence worry that Kosovo would be a hotbed of extremism if it became a separate country, but Ternava and his assistant said that Kosovo’s Muslim community is tolerant and modern.

Ternava also spoke with Muslims at the Southfield office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and at the Albanian Islamic Center in Harper Woods.

During his talk at the Muslim Center, Ternava said that “thousands of people…went as shahids (martyrs) during all these sufferings” that Kosovo went through.

“With the blood of these shahids, with the lots of suffering of innocent people…we hope in the near future to be the newest state in the world,” he said.

Ternava also urged the crowd to follow the teachings of Islam.

“Islam is such a comprehensive religion which includes all what the family needs and what an individual needs in this world,” he said. “Help others to understand it. Teach it to others.”

During his U.S. trip, which is sponsored by the U.S. State Dept., Ternava is also visiting New York, and Washington D.C. to meet with Muslims and State Dept. officials.

He visited Michigan because of its significant Muslim population, which includes many with roots in Kosovo.

Kosovo Blowback: Muslim Albanians from Kosovo Plot Terror Attack in the United States
source: American Concil For Kosovo
Thursday, 10 May 2007
Editorial comment from the American Council for Kosovo:

More details of the foiled plot will emerge in coming days, but this much is clear. Six men, described as “Islamic militants,” had planned a suicide attack on the U.S. Army’s base at Fort Dix with the intention of killing as many American soldiers as possible. Four of the arrestees are described as ethnic Albanians from the former Yugoslavia — i.e., from Kosovo.

Kosovo? How many Americans still remember Kosovo?

-should any of the above information be included to help explain Bill Clinton’s statue?

"Who’ll be the model for the kneeling girl?"

Given that Albanian Muslim Kosovo is the the largest supplier of sex slaves to Europe, it shouldn't be tough finding a model. As a matter of fact, the way those women (and children) are treated, they'll probably just get a woman to kneel & pose for the statue and then encase her in concrete while she is still alive.
