Call to lift UN immunity
Radio Netherlands ^ | June 18 2008

Posted on 06/18/2008 1:50:44 PM PDT by knighthawk

A group comprising survivors and relatives of the victims of the massacre in Srebrenica have called on a court in The Hague to lift the United Nations' immunity. The six thousand Bosnians want to bring charges against the UN and the Netherlands for their role in the fall of the Muslim enclave. But that can only happen if the judge in The Hague makes legal proceedings against the UN possible. The judge will consider the request and deliver a ruling in mid-July.

The Muslim enclave in Srebrenica fell on 11 July 1995 into the hands of Bosnian Serb troops who then killed 8,000 of the inhabitants. The next of kin believe that the UN and the Dutch troops who were protecting the city failed in their duty.

The complaint is independent of another lawsuit involving Srebrenica that was delivered to The Hague on Monday. That case is less concerned with the fall of the enclave than with the turning away of refugees by Dutch troops.

That was truly the New Europe’s darkest moment (so far). If anything summed up their ineffectuality and unwillingness to police their own backyard, that was it. It even finally provoked Our Bill to get over his Mogadishu-phobia to finally put his oar in.

I personally think the “Stain of Srebrenica” as much as the long-over Holocaust is the mark of Europe’s nihilistic self-hate.

Yes, their faux world of forced socialism and twisted thinking...this did represent a dark time for the thrashing EU. A conglomerate of warring societies who really do not like each other or themselves. The perfect liberals — never evaluating consequences before acting. Right out of the liberal dogma handbook.

Delving back into the Balkans threads to misrepresent those who stand against Jihad, I see.

Predictable.

The terrorists who had been launching raids against Serbian farms out of the “safe zone” of Srebrenica were run out of that area and engaged in a running gunfight against the Serb forces. This was a military action, which the Jihadists lost, not a “massacre.”

If you insist on posting in the Balkans threads, it would be helpful if you started to learn something.

Perhaps a lesson from one of your fellow countrymen: “The Kosovo-Albanians have played us like a Stradivarius. We have subsidized and indirectly supported their violent campaign for an ethnically pure and independent Kosovo.We have never blamed them for being the perpetrators of the violence in the early ‘90s and we continue to portray them as the designated victim today in spite of evidence to the contrary. When they achieve independence with the help of our tax dollars combined with those of bin Laden and al-Qaeda, just consider the message of encouragement this sends to other terrorist-supported independence movements around the world. Funny how we just keep digging the hole deeper!” Maj-Gen. Lewis MacKenzie

Should point out that the Muslim military command ordered their (Muslim) soldiers off their strong defensive positions all around Srebrenica and to gather in the north of the city, from which they all departed on foot towards Muslim-held territory before the Dutch withdrew.

The Muslim army was vastly larger than the UN Dutch and there had been plans and talk to swap Srebrenica for Serb-held territory which went on and off for years (at least as early as 1993).

The evacuation was prepared for and the Muslim soldiers withdrawn from defensive positions before there was any fighting for the town.

Wonder if Serbs can sue for the attacks and killings the Muslims kept committing over the years from this UN safe area?

You need a wake up call and who better than one of your own-—Gen. Lewis McKenzie in his work:

“Newsday has discovered that MacKenzie has received $15,000 from a Serb lobby group in the USA for speeches in support of Serbian cause.”

... IOW, he’s hardly an unbiased source.

I'll bet that was made AFTER his detailed revelations. The Serbs simply read from his books and quotes and noted he was not the typical anti-Serb on a mission, but some who spoke of what was really going on in contrast to the lockstep packaged and approved statements, and invited him to talk and then paid him for his travel and time expenses, and their gratitude too.

Do you have a date when he received the money? Plenty of others involved in the Balkan war/speeches received money from Albanian, Croat, etc. lobbyists.

Don’t be so dense.

Receiving funds for telling the truth AFTER THE FACT is hardly biased.

Forgive me, but, for the record, I think it's important to ask you (in view of what you're intimating above) what your position is on the allegations that Gen. MacKenzie raped 4 Bosnian teenage girls.

In short, do you think these allegations are true or false?

Telling lies for a price, or denying what really happened, is.

And that appears to be what we have with Lewis MacKenzie.

“for the record”??

What are you, a prosecutor now, LR? Get a life, pal.

How would I know? Offhand, I find it hard to believe.

Serbs should sue the UN for allowing Naser Oric to launch terror operations out of Srebrenica against outlying Serb villages after it was declared a safe haven. This was the impetus for the Bosnian Serb Army's march on Srebrenica in the first place. A save haven for muslim terrorists, that's what the UN really supports.

Get the full story before posting Bosnian Muslim propaganda.

Serbs made a terrible mistake at Srebrenica.
They let some get away.

Mass-murderer apologists? Then it seems like you're a Islamico-Fascist apologist. Obviously you have no clue beyond what CNN has taught you. Let me teach you some things beyond your Nazi paper and CNN.

Do you know who Nasir Oric is? Look him up and learn what he did in Bosnia and get back to me. Sorry, you won't find him on CNN archives.

Some idiots in here still fail to see the connection between what happened in Bosnia and Kosovo to what is going on to this day in Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Palestine, Cypress, Georgia, Chechnya and more.

This kind of ignorance will prove to be the end of Christianity in Europe.

That sounds more like Muslem propaganda. Most of the perverts that I know would be happy with one Bosnian teenage girl!
