"Serb 4C Swastika an the Nazi Swastika"

"I have three enemies, the Serbs, the Jews and the Communists."

Adolf Hitler, 1939

How shameless evil and Fascist poisened can the brain of a Fundamentalist be? Muslim Bosnians Nazis exterminated almost a half million people in Bosnia, another Million Serbs were exterminated by Croatian and Albanian Nazism and Fascism.

It's so perfide like showing massacred Serbs as Bosnian Muslim victims.

Today the Neo-Nazis again burn and expell Serb and Roma civilians.

MujaSvet, look how the perhaps strongest power against Hitlerian Nazism and Fascism in Europe fought you evil Fascists (US journalist working for the New York Times, David Binder):

"The first time I became aware of the people called Serbs was in 1942. Here in Illinois. I was 11 years old and I was already passionately interested in the course of World War II. My father was the foreign editor of The Chicago Daily News and his whole activity was devoted to the war. My brother had enlisted in the Army Air Force and my sister was soon to join the Navy. One day in the corner drugstore I picked up a comic book called War Comics and the main story in it was about the Chetniks of Draza Mihajlovic fighting the Nazis in Serbia and their bravery and self-sacrifice in battling the better armed Germans. I was dazzled. There was Col. Mihajlovic with his beard and wire-rimmed glasses. Here were people inside occupied Europe who dared for the first time to resist the mighty war machine of Hitler... not in France, not in Poland, not in Czechoslovakia, not in Holland, not in Scandinavia, but in Yugoslavia, in the Balkans. I talked with my father about those brave Serbs. Later in the war I read a bit about Tito and his Yugoslav Partisans. But it was Draza's Serbs who remained most vivid in my memory."

David Binder, "Thoughts About Serbs", June 25, 2000

Or visit your Holocaust victims of your holy Jihad, perfide Mujahedeeni (will you also call the Jews Nazis?):

"Armed Resistance in Yugoslavia

The struggle against the German invaders began in July 1941 with the Serbian uprising. Soon, the Communists took over the leadership of the struggle, and in the ensuing four years the leftist (partisan) movement increased in strength. By the middle of 1943 the movement had over 200,000 fighters in its ranks. At the height of the struggle, no fewer than twenty German divisions were fighting the partisans, with assistance from collaborators of various nationalities, including the SS Handzar division, which had been recruited among the Muslim minority in Croatia."

"Serb apologist for Bosnian genocide."

Have you forgot the NYTimes article "THE BOSNIA CALCULATION: How many have died? Not nearly as many as some would have you think." by George Kenney, former State Department undersecretary (1992) in charge of the Yugoslav desk - Serb-hater like you (George Kenney in 1992:"We spare no effort against Iraq, but we let the Serbs get away with murder. That's why I left the State Department.")

The New York Times, "THE BOSNIA CALCULATION: How many have died?", April 23, 1995 (<- click)

You haven't explained me until now Kenney's 180° turnaround.

Perhaps Lt Gen Satish Nambiar (Retd.), First Force Commander and Head of Mission of the United Nations Forces deployed in the former Yugoslavia 03 Mar 92 to 02 Mar 93. Former Deputy Chief of Staff, Indian Army; currently, Director of the United Services Insitution of India can explain this to you:

"One of the main problems was that there was an unwillingness on the part of the American administration to concede that Serbs had legitimate grievances and rights. I recall State Department official George Kenny turning up like all other American officials, spewing condemnations of the Serbs for aggression and genocide. I offered to give him an escort and to go see for himself that none of what he proclaimed was true. He accepted my offer and thereafter he made a radical turnaround. Other Americans continued to see and hear what they wanted to see and hear from one side, while ignoring the other side. Such behaviour does not produce peace but more conflict."

Hello crazykatz, look what MujaSvet don't want to tell us about Muslim war propaganda:

"The Origins of the 'Mass Rape' Charge

The strategy of the U.S. media war against Serbs was devised and coordinated by State Department and CIA Directorate. This strategy went so far in its requirements for the media coverage of the Balkans, and of Bosnia in particular, that it planned the founding of the Free Balkan radio, after the model of Free Europe, which had been under the CIA management for decades. The U.S. media, CNN above all, which turned the world into a global village, were mostly anti-Serbian in their coverage. This is proven by the case of affiliation of Roy Gutman, U.S. Newsday correspondent with Robert Allen Lofthouse, who claims to have supplied the British and U.S. media with propaganda materials against the Serbs in Bosnia, as well as with Jadranka Cigelj, a Croatian Information Ministry operative posing as a 'rape victim.'

Lofthouse was captured by Serbian troops on Mount Majevica in northern Bosnia, where he fought as a mercenary, in February 1993. According to the debriefing records of the Yugoslav military counterintelligence, Lofthouse confessed that he had had satellite link with an American reporter throughout the war, and admitted to have supplied both Roy Gutman of US Newsday and the BBC with false information about camps, rapes, 'ethnic cleansing' and other atrocities carried out by the Serbs in Bosnia. Roy Gutman, formerly the Reuter's correspondent from Belgrade, was by then Newsday correspondent from Zagreb and Sarajevo. He started his journalistic work as a war correspondent in 1991, when he was reporting on the alleged Serbian shelling of Dubrovnik from Herceg Novi, although he had not been on the scene. Later on he reported about Serbian massacres and rapes in Bosnia, receiving the related information from a pro-Bosnian American-Turkish Women Association, an Islamic religious organization, Dr. Arif Tanovic, a Tuzla television director, and later, Lofthouse. Lofthouse was said to have sent false reports and rigged TV footage to Roy Gutman once a month, and to the BBC once a week, via Bosnian Muslim intelligence intermediaries. Among other things, he is credited for having told Gutman and the BBC that the Bosnian Serbs were using war gases in September 1992."

I had Bosnian Muslims come up to me weeping, literally weeping, and beg me not to think that Bosnian Muslims were like the thugs who carried out the 9/11 attacks. "We are completely different!" they said. "We hate them and what they did!" I had Bosnian Serbs sneer at me, "You see! We were right all along! Death to the Balije!"

I'm here to tell you I believe the Bosniacs a thousand years before I'd believe you or any Bosnian Serb for a single second. I've dealt with all three groups extensively and I know who I can trust. And who I can't. And who we shouldn't trust.

By your standard anyone who doesn't dance around a fire gibbering KILL THE MOOSLIMS KILL THE MOOSLIMS is "CLINTONISTIC." You are so intent on avoiding responsibility for what was done that you'll do anything, including slime people, to avoid hearing the truth or allowing it to be heard.

Go sing a Chetnik war song, drink shlivo and kick a dog. Maybe you'll feel better.

We've had eight years to investigate the war crimes. There's a reason 95% of the defendants in the Hague are Serbs. That's because 95% of the war crimes committed during the war were committed by Serbs.

Frankly, I heard enough Serb whining about how "unfair" the world was to them during my stay in Bosnia to last me a lifetime. Life is not fair to causes that engage in war crimes to further their ends.

I laugh at you. This is indeed a Conservative American site, which is why I wonder why Milosevic-catamite anti-American supporters of Serb NATIONAL-SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST war criminals even waste their time here. Why don't you go start your own web site? WWW.THEWORLDISSOUNFAIRTOCHETNIKCHILDKILLERS.COM is probably not registered yet. You still have your chance.

As for my conservative credentials, I don't need to prove them to you.

>>>>On the contrary, the Muslims were the only ones heard in this mess.<<<<<

The question still remains unanswered to.This may help:

Alvin Dorfman and Heather Cottin, Jewish Currents, April 1996

"To take but one example: in Washington the public relations firm of Ruder/Finn mounted a campaign to get American Jews to associate the civil war in Bosnia-Herzegovina with the Holocaust. This campaign, according to Justice Department documents, was paid for by the governments of Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina, although the head of Ruder/Finn later explained these governments had not paid for all the costs of the campaign. What other governments were passing money to Ruder/Finn?

Was the C.I.A. helping to subsidize the campaign through traditional means, the usual kinds of "front" companies, or "proprietaries," as insiders like to call them?

Every effort was made by Ruder/Finn to reach the leading Jewish organizations in the United States at an early stage. Facts were distorted. Lies were reiterated so many times that they became "facts."

In an interview with the well- known French TV journalist Jacques Merlino, James Harff, director of Ruder/Finn Global Affairs, boasted that the achievement he was most proud of was "to have put Jewish opinion on our side."
He said, "We out witted three Jewish organizations - the Anti-Defamation League, the American Jewish Committee and the American Jewish Congress..."
Harff called getting these organizations to publish a pro-Bosnian Muslim ad in the N.Y. Times, and to organize demonstrations outside the United Nations "a tremendous coup."
He crowed, "By a single move we were able to present a simple story of good guys and bad guys which would hereafter play itself...We won by targeting the Jewish audience..." He explained, "Our work is not to verify information, our work is to accelerate the circulation of information favorable to us. We are not paid to be moral."*

In other words, Jewish organisations were duped into supporting Nazi goals. This is the gravest example of Holocaust revisionism.

Entire Rudder Finn's "BOZNIA" fabrication is a homage to Adolph Hitler who wrote in Mein Kampf that 1000 times repeated lie becomes a fact.


The lies about Bosnia were recycled with Kosovo. Only, they got worse. Trepaca was compared with Treblinka and Belsen.

This was the most brutal act of Holocaust denial, because Trepca was a hoax, total fabrication.

Intifada was modelled upon Kosovo. By supporting Muslim lies in Bosnia and Kosovo, gullible in American Jewish organisations opened the doors for Intifada wide open.

"I have three enemies, the Serbs, the Jews and the Communists."Adolf Hitler, 1939

There is another notorious Hitler's quote that is appropriate regrading the coverage of war in Bosnia:

" that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying. These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes."

Bosnia media coverage is a homage to Adolph Hitler.

Look how MujaSvet reacts desperately, when the maliciousness of his Jihad Islamist brotherhood gets revealed.

Just normal.

He can only do what Adolf, Himmler and Husseini told him once - portrait the one we want to exterminate as subhumans, repeat our Goebbels lie, and ignore the facts presented here.

A primitive plot, MujaSvet, isn't it?

MujaSvet wants to establish here in FR also a pure pro-Muslim war propaganda channel:

"We started to track the media demonization trend back in late 1988. By March 1993, we (Truth in Media) had produced an extensive study documenting four years of anti-Serbian propaganda by the NEW YORK TIMES, for example (TiM Bulletin 93- 03, Mar. 8, 1993). Our research encompassed some 1,200 NYT articles, including 120 Editorial and OpEd pieces on the subject of Yugoslavia, three of the four years being BEFORE the Bosnian war started.

Of that total, 93% were anti-Serbian, 7% were anti-Croatian; NONE were anti-Muslim!!"

"Group will battle propaganda abroad

By Ben Barber

The Clinton administration begins work today on a new International Public Information group designed to `influence foreign audiences´ in support of U.S. foreign policy and to counteract propaganda by enemies of the United States.

U.S. military, diplomatic and intelligence officials will participate in today's meeting of a core group to set up the IPI system of coordinating all overseas information among the various branches of the U.S. government.

The aim is `to enhance U.S. security, bolster America's economic prosperity and to promote democracy abroad,´ according to the IPI Core Group Charter, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Times.

However, the charter also says that IPI control over `international military information´ is intended to `influence the emotions, motives, objective reasoning and ultimately the behavior of foreign governments, organizations, groups and individuals.´

The charter makes clear that IPI activities `are overt and address foreign audiences only.´ But it also says domestic information should be `deconflicted´ and `synchronized´ so as not to send a contradictory message.

The Clinton administration also hopes to encourage the United Nations and other international organizations to make `effective use of IPI [...] in support of multilateral peacekeeping,´ the charter says. Shocked by confusion during military missions in Kosovo and Haiti, when no U.S. agency was empowered to coordinate U.S. efforts to sell its policies and counteract bad press abroad, President Clinton on April 30 issued a secret Presidential Decision Direction --PDD 68 -- ordering the creation of IPI.

`In the old days, the U.S. Information Agency and State were the main agencies for communicating internationally,´ said an administration official.

`With the information revolution, all agencies now have the ability to communicate internationally and interact with foreign populations,´ said the official, speaking on the condition of anonymity.´

IPI is a mechanism that has been established to make sure that these various actors are working in a coordinated manner.

The charter insists that information distributed through IPI should be designed not `to mislead foreign audiences´ and that information programs `must be truthful.´ But numerous clauses in the document have an Orwellian ring that gives the impression of a vast, coordinated propaganda operation.

`The objective of IPI is to synchronize the informational objectives, themes and messages that will be projected overseas [...] to prevent and mitigate crises and to influence foreign audiences in ways favorable to the achievement of U.S. foreign policy objectives,´ the charter says.

U.S. officials, and the text of the charter, explicitly state that the new information policy will not be used as a propaganda weapon against the American public --which is prohibited by U.S. law.

However, since foreign media reports often get played back in U.S. media, it will likely be impossible to prevent a backwash of the pro-U.S. information into America.

The charter recognizes this by calling for the government's domestic public affairs activities to be coordinated with its foreign IPI efforts.

Information aimed at domestic audiences should `be coordinated, integrated, deconflicted and synchronized with the [IPI Core Group] to achieve a synergistic effect for [government] strategic information activities,´ the charter says.

The administration official said that the IPI system is `geared towards prevention and mitigation of crises´ and will remain active in peacetime `so we won't need to reconstitute the entire thing all the time.´

Mr. Clinton's PDD 68, issued with no fanfare during the Kosovo bombing campaign, orders top officials from the Defense, State, Justice, Commerce and Treasury departments and the Central Intelligence Agency and FBI to meet and set up the core group.

Junior level officials from those agencies were to hold the first IPI planning session today at the State Department. By Friday, the IPI core group is required to issue a statement of its policies, programs and scope of its work.

Next Wednesday, senior-level officials meet under the chairmanship of Morton Halperin, policy planning director of the State Department, to firm up the IPI system.

While a large number of government agencies are involved, knowledge of the IPI effort has been closely held.

Aides to top officials in the State Department, USIA and Voice of America all said yesterday they knew little about the concept apart from a vague outline of its mission.

The IPI core group is also instructed by the charter to arrange `training exercises at the National Defense University, National Foreign Affairs Training Center, the Service War Colleges´ and other institutions.

And its activities could go beyond broadcasts and press releases. The IPI core group is ordered by the presidential directive to `assist [U.S. government] efforts in defeating adversaries.´

`The intelligence community will play a crucial role [...] for identifying hostile foreign propaganda and deception that targets the U.S.,´ the charter says."

The Washington Times, "Group will battle propaganda abroad", July 28, 1999 (<- click)

Perhaps MujaSvet can explain us why "U.S. military, diplomatic and intelligence officials" have to "influence the emotions, motives, objective reasoning and ultimately the behavior of foreign governments, organizations, groups and individuals" when Mr Clinton was "shocked by confusion during military missions in Kosovo"? I thought MujaSvet tells us the truth?

Why then this is necessary?

"Bosnia media coverage is a homage to Adolph Hitler."

Hello DTA, also Richard Poe has compared it with Führer Hitler's strategy:

"The Big Lie About Kosovo

By Richard Poe

April 13, 1999

'Save the Albanian Kosovars!' Clinton cries. 'Save the Sudeten Germans!' Hitler trumpeted in 1938. The names have changed, but the strategy remains the same.

For more than 50 years, we Americans have looked down our noses at the Germans, for having followed Hitler so blindly. But now it's our turn. We are proving no more resistant to propaganda than those cheering crowds in Leni Riefenstahl's Triumph of the Will.

Back in the 1930s, Adolf Hitler needed an excuse to seize Czechoslovakia. So he invented one. Three and a quarter million ethnic Germans lived in the Sudetenland, under Czech rule. As William L. Shirer recounts in The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, Hitler secretly funded an extremist group called the Sudeten German Party and ordered it to provoke an uprising against the Czechs.

Kosovo, too, appears to have been destabilized by outside forces. For years, Kosovars protested Milosevic peacefully. But in 1997, a group called the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) suddenly started shooting. Who were these people?

The Times of London (March 24, 1999) described the KLA as 'a Marxist-led force funded by dubious sources, including drug money.' European police suspect the KLA of connections to Albanian gangsters. At least two of the group's backers appear to have been the CIA and the German spy agency BND, according to intelligence analyst John Whitley, quoted in the Truth in Media Global Watch Bulletin (April 2, 1999).

The purpose of staging a provocation is to create a backlash. This strategy certainly worked for Hitler in 1938. As unrest spread in the Sudetenland, the Czechs cracked down. Czech President Eduard Benes ordered troops into the region and declared martial law.

Right on cue, the German press went wild. 'Women and Children Mowed Down by Armored Cars,' ran a typical Berlin newspaper headline in September 1938. 'Poison Gas Attack on Aussig' cried another.

Hitler accused Benes of waging a 'war of extermination' against Sudeten Germans. 'The Germans he now drives out!' cried Hitler, in a September 16, 1938 speech. 'We see the appalling figures: on one day 10,000 fugitives, on the next 20,000... and today 214,000. Whole stretches of country were depopulated, villages are burned down, attempts are made to smoke out the Germans with hand-grenades and gas.'

Sound familiar? Hitler's rhetoric bears an eerie resemblance to the CNN news blitz on Kosovo. Of course, Hitler was exaggerating. Many of the atrocities he alleged later turned out to be fabrications. But the same is true of our newscasts on Kosovo.

Take the alleged massacre of 45 Albanian civilians at Racak, for instance, reported in January 1999. Forensic and other evidence now suggests that the bodies were those of KLA guerrillas killed in combat.

The hoax has been widely discussed in the European press (including Le Monde, Die Welt, Le Figaro and the BBC). But U.S. news outlets have been as silent on the controversy as if they were taking orders from Goebbels himself.

In the Sudeten crisis, Hitler claimed to be inspired by internationalist ideals. 'Among the fourteen points which President Wilson promised ...' the Fuhrer proclaimed, 'was the fundamental principle of the self-determination of all peoples ...' By freeing the Sudeten Germans, Hitler argued, he was fulfilling Wilson's vision.

Clinton too claims he is fighting for human rights. But ethnic cleansing does not bother Clinton when his friends are the ones doing the cleansing. He ordered no bombing when the Croatians drove 300,000 Serbs from Krajina, burning their homes and killing many. Nor did he intervene when our NATO ally Turkey slaughtered over 35,000 Kurds.

Every schoolchild today knows that Hitler's real goal, in seizing Czechoslovakia, was to use it as a stepping stone for his planned invasion of Russia.

But what is Clinton's real interest in Kosovo? Nobody knows.

Many theories have been floated. Some point to the Trepca mines of northern Kosovo, rich in gold, zinc, silver and lead. The New York Times called them the 'Kosovo war's glittering prize' (July 8, 1998).

Others see a more far-reaching strategy. The Russians claim that NATO, like Hitler, wants to use the Balkans as a stepping stone for extending its power eastward -- eventually meddling in the affairs of Russia itself.

But this is all speculation. Only time will reveal Clinton's true intentions, as it ultimately did Hitler's.

In his memoir Inside the Third Reich, Albert Speer recalled the anxious mood of Berliners, in September 1939, as they digested the news that England and France had declared war.

'The atmosphere was noticeably depressed,' he recalls. 'The people were full of fear about the future. None of the regiments marched off to war decorated with flowers as they had done at the beginning of the First World War. The streets remained empty. There was no crowd on Wilhelmsplatz shouting for Hitler."

A wise man once said that those who fail to study history are condemned to repeat it. Should Clinton actually succeed in sparking a world war, Americans will no doubt react with the same shock and fear as Berliners did in 1939. But we will have only ourselves to blame.'
