Last update: 3:22 p.m. EDT July 17, 2008 GRACANICA, Serbia, July 17, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire via COMTEX/ -- The following statement was issued today by His Grace ARTEMIJE, Bishop of Ras and Prizren, and pastor of Orthodox Christians in the Serbian province of Kosovo and Metohija: "On July 21, President George W. Bush is scheduled to meet with Hashim Thaci, styled by some 'Prime Minister' of the separatist Albanian Muslim administration in the Serbian province of Kosovo and Metohija. As pastor of the Orthodox Christian people of Kosovo, I protest to the fullest possible degree the fact that President Bush would bring dishonor on his office and sully the good name of the American nation by receiving such an infamous terrorist, war criminal, and organized crime chieftain. "Such a meeting is particularly disturbing in light of President Bush's aspiration to leadership in the struggle of decent people everywhere against global jihad terrorism. In another context, he likened association with terrorists to seeking accord with the Nazis before World War II. ... "His record as a terrorist and war criminal is no less notorious. As a former commander of the so-called 'Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA),' Mr. Thaci bears primary responsibility for the terror campaign that has killed thousands of my flock and forced a quarter of a million to flee their homes in the province. Thousands of Serbian houses have been burned or forcibly taken over by Albanians, many of them illegal immigrants from Albania. Mr. Thaci's henchmen have demolished or desecrated over 150 of the churches and monasteries in my diocese. Particularly targeted for destruction have been crosses and icons of Our Lord Jesus Christ and the saints, giving proof to the Islamic jihad ferocity that motivates these attacks.

I’ve wondered where you’ve been kronos77.
Typical, IMO the Bush diplomatic efforts border on incoherent, hug a thug, how disappointing.
Latest news, new Serbian pro-western-pro-US government:
Democrats-Socialists... that is- commies supported by US admin...
It is depressing, Bush supports the elements of Islamic Radicalization, or rather, the agents of it, and suppresses Serbian Christians through such support.
“Burn a Church and build a Mosque” is the policy in Kosovo.
well i dont even know if this is true.
“Typical, IMO the Bush diplomatic efforts border on incoherent, hug a thug, how disappointing.”
Because God is indeed merciful, those Bush diplomatic efforts will be all over come January. It seems highly unlikely that, no matter who becomes president, the circumstances of Eastern Christians could be impacted more negatively by American foreign policy after that than they have been the past 8 years, though McCain might prove me wrong, given who he is financially beholden to.
The destroyed churches? Here's a few of the 200 or so, destroyed. Just click on one for the before & after.
That Thaci is Albanian Mafia? That's a given.You can't be PM of one of Transparency Internationals top 5 "most corrupt countries, and keep your hands clean!
That the Albanian Mafia was organ trafficking? Even before Carla del Ponte's revelation about the KLA kidnapping Serbs for organ sale, the same accusation was leveled against Albania for buying & selling Albanian children for the purpose of trafficking their organs by The Council of Europe back in 2004 If they'd sell their own children for organ trafficking, what makes it a surprise that they would sell the organs of living Serbs?
You haven't seen anything yet if Obama is elected!
Good for Bishop Artemije! He is so right and I am so glad he has the you-know-whats to issue this statemetn. The truth is on his side. May God help him in his efforts!!
What I meant was I cant believe that Bush would meet with someone like that. Please excuse.
Well, Iran helped the Islamic cause in the Balkans and now Bush is going to meet with an Islamic puppet that poses as a champion of democracy.
Bush is hard at work converting Christian Orthodox lands into Islamic lands for Islam. I mean, after all according to Bush it’s all the same God. So, who cares?
I wonder if the Serbs were all Methodists if this would be happening.
