UN administrators flee Kosovo's Christian “Kristallnacht”

UN administrators flee “Kristallnacht” | 23:46 | B92

PRISTINA -- Wednesday – UN administrators have abandoned offices in the Kosovo towns of Gnjilane, Prizren and Pec, fleeing what one UNMIK official described to B92 as “Kristallnacht”.

“Kristallnacht is under way in Kosovo,” the official told B92 on condition of anonymity.

“What is happening in Kosovo must unfortunately be described as a pogrom against Serbs: churches are on fire and people are being attacked for no other reason than their ethnic background,” he added.

Serbs and UN officers have been the target of attacks by Kosovo Albanians during most of the day and night. The most dramatic withdrawal was from Belo Polje on the outskirts of Pec, where UNMIK officials, retreating with Serb residents, where forced to shoot Albanian assailants in self-defence.

The Serbian Orthodox seminary in Pec has been razed, and Albanians celebrated its destruction by setting fire to the local church., said the UN official.

So nobody is a terrorist. Good, then no one will have a problem with us pulling out our troops. We don't have enough soldiers to let the "international community" use them as hostages UN babysitting missions.

True, let the euroweenies take care of it.

Dear Moderators --

I believe a mistake has been regarding the banning of Siobhan for alleged "anti-semitism" pursuant to her post below.

If you had read the thread to which she was responding, surely you understand that she is talking about Muslims. It's not my understanding that bashing of Islam (or Catholics, for that matter) is a bannable offense in the same way "anti-semitism" would be.

I trust you'll review your decision and realize that a mistake has been made here. As you'll see from Siobhan's last post her keen Catholic sense about Kerry -- in addition to her substantive allegation of the "satanic" in Islam -- ought to make her a valuable addition to this forum.

It's important to remember that Islam is a heresy and indeed "demoted" Christ, if you will, in favor of Mohammed's sometimes clearly 'satanic' lies. The only Jews who betrayed Jesus were his friend Judas and, to some extent, his "rock" Peter who denied him thrice not even a day after pledging to follow him without fear unto death and the rest of the apostles -- save John -- who were too overcome with fear and confusion to stand by him through the crucifixion.

There are few people more hell-bent on the destruction of Christians than the descendents of those who betrayed Jesus for satanic lies.

The Christian Albanians are not KLA adherents. The appeared to have been terrorized by the KLA.

Do not forget that over 1,000 Albanians have been murdered by the KLA

Cronos is a liar - the figures he gave are not for Kosovo but for Albania - and he gave those figures in an attempt to hide the evil of the Kosovo Muslims by deflecting their association with jihad activities by linking them to Christian Albanians in Albania proper. I am going to get his misleading posts deleted.

the banning of Siobhan for alleged "anti-semitism" pursuant to her post below

Are you sure about this? Post # 124 is still there. The comment hasn't even been pulled, nonetheless having the poster banned.

>>>There are few people more hell-bent on the destruction of Christians than the descendents of those who betrayed Jesus for satanic lies.

If you had read the thread to which she was responding, surely you understand that she is talking about Muslims. It's not my understanding that bashing of Islam (or Catholics, for that matter) is a bannable offense in the same way "anti-semitism" would be.

If that comment was posted on this thread, then clearly you are correct that it could only refer to Muslims, not Jews, since this thread is dealing with Muslim terrorism and not with Jews in any way. However, it's the second part that I don't get. Why would it be okay to say that Muslims betrayed Christ but not okay to say the same thing about Jews? Why is there a special code of PC speech regarding Jews, but not any other religious or ethnic group?

=== Why would it be okay to say that Muslims betrayed Christ but not okay to say the same thing about Jews?

I should think that only a Jew who first had accepted Christ then could betray him. Muslims do accept Jesus -- but only to a certain extent -- placing Mohammed first and foremost.

And, again, I think it's important to remember that Islam is a Christian heresy even though that relationship seems harder to fathom, I guess, than Christianity's being somehow a Jewish heresy of sorts.

I see FR honored its internecine tradition this morning by stupidly banning another of its most choice and useful ornaments. As in so many other cases, this is fundamentally a matter of a moderator's misplaced zeal to uphold unwritten rules about how hate speech is to be defined and how punished -- not to mention a fine example of the way Victimhood Culture works by compelling society at large to submit to a consciousness-raising for the benefit of certified victim groups, in a purposely open-ended quest for imaginary offenses.

I shall be plain. Siobhan's comments, while pointed - as they ever are - were not hateful. They convey her disgust with Islam but they do not violate the Forum's posting guidelines. There was no profanity in the post. There was no personal attack. Finally, there is no racism, for the opinion Siobhan expresses with her wonted asperity - that Islam's radical opposition to Christianity derives from its heretical origin - is a strictly historical judgment.

It's a lamentable quality of this medium and the technology that supports it, that before they've even considered what they've read, readers leap to over-hasty conclusions and those charged with the prudent exercise of authority hand down ill (or un-) considered judgments. Not your finest hour, by a considerable margin.

Concur. We've been fighting this war ever since Mad Mo came roaring out of the desert with fire and the sword. The great tragedy of the Crusades was that they failed to utterly crush the mohammedans.

The "main battleground" is whichever site butts up to your front door. For Serbs and Macedonians, smoldering seminary ruins and orthodox churches afire appear quite "central" in the Islamo-Fascist war for theocratic world hegemony. For Hindus, Kashmir seems the focal point. For Israelis, it's the West Bank or Gaza. For me, it's an ash-coated firehouse in lower Manhattan. I observe that significant factions of Muslims have trouble coexisting with a variety of disparate neighbors. These antagonistic tendencies do not bode well for the survival of Islam or those who embrace it. The memory of endless photos on lightposts and bulletin boards and plywood fences; the faces flapping in the wind, streaked and faded by rain; human torches swan-diving from the 100th floor; these fill my heart with bottomless and bloody vengeance. I know this American anger is common. Continued Muslim fixation on the destruction of the "other", we "kafirs",will provoke their own annihilation. Jihadists nota bene!

Indeed. They disobeyed orders, failed to accomplish their mission, and created a huge amount of ill will, 800 years later. Not good.

I'm sorry, but even to ask that question is anti-Semitic. Please refer to the fine print on your copy of the Constitution under Amendment One.

Maybe you'll even get a chance to read this before the post is deleted by the Administrator.

"There are few people more hell-bent on the destruction of Christians than the descendents of those who betrayed Jesus for satanic lies."

It's pretty clear from context that this refers to Mohammedans.

But it's suitably ambiguous to someone with a guilty conscience -- say, hypothetically, someone belonging to a group that has relentlessly sought the de-Christianising of "the West" but nevertheless understands that the group's continued survival may depend on the willingness of these ex-Christian Westerners to be deployed as its armed surrogates.

If the hired help downstairs ever knew what master and his family were saying about them in private, they might just be inclined to hand in their notice and let master fend for himself. And we coudn't have that, now, could we?

Moderators,

I agree completely with Askel5 in post #154 and Romulus in post #162.

Siobhan meant the Albanian Muslims in her comment on the article.

“Kristallnacht is under way in Kosovo,” the official told B92 on condition of anonymity.
“What is happening in Kosovo must unfortunately be described as a pogrom against Serbs: churches are on fire and people are being attacked for no other reason than their ethnic background,” he added.

The "satanic lies" Siobhan referred to are the lies of Mohammed. Hillaire Belloc (and many others) have classified Islam as a Christian heresy (see his book The Great Heresies). Siobhan clearly agrees with him that today's Muslims are "descendents of those who betrayed Jesus."

I have been a close FR friend of Siobhan since an October, 2002 thread, and can vouch that she has never posted anything anti-semetic, but that she is very knowledgeable about the evils of radical Islam. She is a valuable asset to FreeRepublic, being one of the few Freepers who can actually speak Arabic.

Moderators, please lift your ban on Siobhan and allow her to return to FreeRepublic.

If Siobhan got ZOTted for posting that the mohammedans are hell-bent on the destruction of Christians, there's something seriously wrong with Management, here.

SHE SPOKE THE TRUTH.

One should not be punished for speaking the truth on a conservative web forum. That's part of what we're about, here.

So here it is, again:

There are few people more hell-bent on the destruction of Christians than the descendents of those who betrayed Jesus for satanic lies.

I pray that your information is correct -- when Siobhan was on her hiatus from FR -- it was sorely lacking a great mind and a great person who ascribes to the real Conservatism of this world!

Her brief sentence that caused her sentencing to being ostracized here was no more than could be verified as truth, as we know.

The Muslims were the direct descendents of the Jewish Faith, but totally heretical.

The Crusades were generated by the persecution of Christians in the Mid-East by these who were spawned by a madman's interpretation of what was God's Rule. Their hatreds and tactics have spread and infected our entire world today with terror, generated by their "religion" which is beyond our scope of understanding.

The Ibrahaim's among them will attest to their common ancestry in Judaism from days of yore.

I am grateful for the supportive posts on this thread, and as one can see, I am able to post again.

I have learned a great deal from this experience today, and it is instructive to be misjudged, to be called an anti-Semite, and to have one's words called anti-Semitic. All of this seems to be a given when the spirit of the age trumps everything else.

The moderator's comments to me upon banning me did not bring me undiluted joy, as one might imagine, but my daughter Mairead announced that we should all go to Adoration and thank Jesus for this little cross. So following this extraordinary child we went and did just that. I thank Jesus for this little cross today.

Too bad about the Serbs - we were bombing the wrong people. But then Clinton was in power - the guy who helped that commie Aristide.

If we had treated the Serbs well, my guess is they would have been ONE European power more than willing to help run down Al Quaida and its cronies in Iraq.

I hope the U.N. leaves, and the Serbs resurrect themselves and exterminate or convert every single Muslim polluting the sacred soil of Kosovo.

Yes...some are called Phalange as well but that it is a political term.

There are (were before the Shiites took over most of Lebanon) Greek Catholics and Greek Orthodox as well in the Lebanese Phalange. (there are Phalangists in Spain as well just to further confuse anyone..lol)

I am distantly descended from early 1800s Maronites. There are many Maronite descendents in the South with the family surname Thomas....my maternal grandfather's surname.

PS:....lots of Syrian Maronites in the South as well....in the merchant class.....Simons, Iupes, Saabs, Sykes, Avalons, lots of names that end in -ish like Hankish.
