Skip to comments.Report: ‘Christians Flee Bosnia Amid Discrimination, Islamization’

SARAJEVO, BOSNIA-HERZEGOVINA (BosNewsLife)-- Christians are massively leaving post-war Bosnia-Herzegovina amid mounting discrimination and Islamization, according to a new report released Friday, October 12.
"Many believers leave the country since war raged 20 years ago," said Netherlands-based advocacy and aid group Kerk in Nood, or 'Church in Need', in the report obtained by BosNewsLife.
There are just 440,000 Catholics left in the Balkan nation, half the prewar figure, the group said.
The report came on the heels of talks between the cardinal of Sarajevo, Vinko Puljic,and European Council President Herman van Rompuy about difficulties faced by Bosnia's Christians.
Puljic reportedly complained that while dozens of mosques were build in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo, no building permissions were given for Christian churches.
"The cardinal already waits 13 years on permission to build just a small church," Church in Need said. Authorities so far refused to return hundreds of nationalized church buildings, despite a ruling by the European Court of Human Rights to do so, according to Christian officials.
Additionally tens of thousands of people, many of them Catholic Croats, have been prevented from returning home following the war, Church in Need said. These obstacles violate the Dayton peace accords that ended the 1992-1995 Bosnian War, which split the nation between a Serb republic and a Muslim-Croat federation.
"Time is running out as there is a worrisome rise in radicalism," Puljic said, who added that the people of Bosnia-Herzegovina were "persecuted for centuries" after European powers "failed to support them in their struggle against the Ottoman Empire."

Thanks Bill Clinton!
...and many thought the Serbs were the bad guys......surprise..surprise!!!
Wow! Never saw this coming!
The criminal muzzie thugs do what they like and the Obamas of the world turn their backs while Christians are murdered and run out of their homes and the muzzies take over. Sounds a lot like Germany when they took what belonged to Jews and made it their own. Now the muzzies are doing much the same thing. But that is okay. Obama has their backs.
Bill Clinton is to blame for the persecution of these Christians. Helping the Muslims to take over Christian lands is unforgivable.
On the plus side, as Christians leave these countries, God will bring His full punishment raining down on them. “If You, O Lord, should mark our iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?” Psalm 130:3
US and NATO backed ethnic cleansing.
I’m wary of any reports from the Yugoslav regions. Croats, Serbs, and Bosniaks are notorious for hating each other and playing loose with the truth.
If you pay attention to the Serbs, a lot of the time they will disparage the Croats as well, this isn’t simply a Muslim/Christian conflict. Whenever they talk about atrocities, they always mention the others’ involvement with collaboration and neglect their own involvement.
Quite frankly, we should have just allowed a reasonable partition and left it from there. They won’t stop hating each other anytime soon, so why force them to live together?
These days, liberals are always whining about virtually non-existent "racism" in this country. They ought to go to former Yugoslavia and learn what real racism is.
