Bosnia and Herzegovina (Country threat level - ): On 5 July 2005, Bosnian Serb police officers discovered two devices containing 77 lb/35 kg of explosives near the Potocari memorial center for the victims of the 1995 Srebrenica massacre. Tens of thousands of family members, foreign dignitaries and others are scheduled to visit the site on 11 July for a commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the massacre. A police official stated that the devices were "ready to detonate" and that they were capable of causing large-scale casualties and damage. It has yet to be determined who planted the devices.
"We have indications of certain people, who most probably planted these explosive" said spokesman for Srpska Interior Ministry.
According to news and security sources in Republic of Srpska and Serbia those people are Muslim.
The explosives were hidden in two locations and ready to use. 35 kilos is almost same quantity that is used in Madrid train bombing. And remember - according to Italian sources that attack was planned in muslim Bosnia. According to Croatian newspapers terrorist got material for bomb making from muslim Bosnia.

Police "on the track" of Srebrenica bombers | 11:27 -> 20:34 July 05 | B92
BANJA LUKA -- Tuesday Police in the Republic of Serbia say they are on the track of the people who planted an explosive device in Potocari, near Srebrenica, where statesmen and international officials are expected to gather next week to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the massacre of eight thousand Muslim men and boys.
This was breaking news for them until information started coming out that perpetrators are muslim.
"It has yet to be determined who planted the devices"
Hmmm, who likes to plant bombs? Let's see...Poles? Swedes? Costa Ricans? Canadians? Fijians? Hey, I give up! Can't be Muslims, though, because Islam means Peace!sarcasm off
Bomb scare revives vivid memories of Srebrenica massacre
By Patrick Bishop in Srebrenica
Optimism that the tenth anniversary of Europe's worst post-war massacre might reconcile Bosnia's Serbs and Muslims dimmed yesterday when bomb-making materials were discovered close to the memorial site.
Following a tip-off, Bosnian Serb police found nearly 80lbs of explosive, a fuse and a detonator near the cemetery where many of the 7,000-8,000 men and boys murdered by Serbs are buried.
610 new graves are being added to the Srebrenica memorial
The immediate suspicion was that they were to be used to blow up VIPs and mourners due to gather there on Monday to remember one of the blackest days in recent European history.
The police would not be drawn on the bomb's likely target. But a spokesman said that the materials had only recently been hidden and "everything was all set up and ready to go".
The discovery, in a derelict cement factory 200 yards from the Srebrenica Memorial and Cemetery, was the result of a tip from European peacekeepers (Eufor). The Serb police said they were now hunting a number of suspects.
In the half-deserted town there was no doubt yesterday among the Serb population that they would get the blame.
The place shows some signs of recovery. Fresh mortar patches the shell scars that pock many buildings, new houses have been built and the first stirrings of economic activity are visible.
But psychological healing was not much in evidence. Several Serbs said they believed the materials had been planted further to discredit their people.
"Somebody wanted to draw yet more attention to the event," said Mirko, a 26-year old who was in the area when the killings occurred.
On hearing that it was European peacekeepers who had sounded the alarm he said: "Then it's obvious that Eufor set the explosives."
Since the massacre, the scale of which has been admitted by the Bosnian Serb leadership, some 3,000 Muslims have returned.
They and their 7,000-9,000 Serb neighbours have worked out a modus vivendi. But it is based on necessity rather than any flowering of fraternal feeling.
Mevlida Nalic returned to her home town four years ago and opened a bar-restaurant, one of four now owned by Muslims.
"Initially there was some provocation from the Serbs," she said. "They'd shout insults and the odd threat. Once they realised that they can't force us out again they have stopped. I have Serb customers as well as Muslims."
The bomb discovery is an unpleasant reminder that not everyone is so accepting.
"They want people to be afraid," she said.
Ms Nalic nonetheless says: "My life is great here. I live like a lord."
She is one of the very lucky few. Most of the inhabitants are there because they have no other choice.
The Muslim returnees came back because they could not find jobs in Sarajevo and Tuzla, whence they had fled. A law returning property to legal owners meant there was nowhere for them to live.
Many Serbs are living there only because it means a roof over their heads and a connection with the past.
The most lively place yesterday was the cemetery, where mini-bulldozers had finished digging neat rows of graves to take the 610 most recently identified victims of the massacre, who will be buried during Monday's memorial ceremony.
Spades lay heaped on the grass for Muslim widows to shovel earth on long-departed husbands and sons.
It was a sight to make even the most hardened Balkan nationalist pause and reflect. But it would seem that there are some Serbs who are not ready to do so yet.
In Belgrade, where responsibility for the crime ultimately lies, the authorities permitted large billboards to be displayed commemorating the massacre.
They showed the latex-gloved hand of a forensic investigator holding the decaying fingers of a corpse and the words, "Srebrenica 1995-2005: To See, To Know, To Remember."
There were 27 of them and they first appeared at the weekend. By Monday all had been defaced with such slogans as "there will be a replay" and the name of General Ratko Mladic, author of the butchery.
In an interview with the Bosnian Muslim publication Dani, Hakija Meholic, the police chief of Srebrenica, recalled that at the Bosniak conference in Sarajevo in September 1993, Izetbegovic claimed to have discussed various scenarios for Srebrenica with President Clinton. According to Meholic, an ally of Naser Oric:
"We were received there by President Izetbegovic, and immediately after the welcome he asked us: 'What do you think about the swap of Srebrenica for Vogosca?' There was a silence for a while and then I said: 'Mr President, if this is a done thing, then you should not have invited us here, because we have to return and face the people and personally accept the burden of that decision.' Then he said: 'You know, I was offered by [US Pres. William] Clinton in April 1993 that the Chetnik [derisory term used for Serbs] forces enter Srebrenica, carry out a slaughter of 5,000 Muslims, and then there will be a military intervention.'"
Well, Clinton was wrong once again. The Serbs actually murdered over 7,000 at Srebrenica.
Whoops! There are always 10% that don't get the word. The story is supposed to be that the Serbs didn't do it, not that they'd do it again! Zagor, you better get back to Belgrade and get those renegades back onto the Serb victimization reservation muy pronto!
Pretty elaborate, wasn't it? Got thousands of witnesses, including Dutch soldiers and Bosnian civilians to say that they saw Serb forces separate the Bosnian men from the women and take them away. Persuaded several Serb commanders to testify in court to planning and conducting the massacre and then go to jail. Managed to get American soldiers to fabricate electronic intercepts of Serb commanders discussing the massacre. Even produced a videotape of Serb forces shooting bound prisoners. And then, of course, persuading 7,000 Bosnians to tie each others hands before shooting each other in the back was the real trick. Just another day in the international conspiracy to make the Serbs look bad!
Here's more on the "set-up".
Sounds like "Muslims" to me.....!!!!
The Serbs have ZERO history of blowing up any civilians, none! If you can show me or anyone on here an incident where the Serbs committed a terrorist act, please do. I really don't care about the region as much, but the locals of Srebrenica-Skelani-Bratunac just want to live in peace.
This was done by outsiders, not locals. I place my bet it was muslims, not because I am American of Serb ancestry but due to their past history in that region. The Bosnian muslims don't care if they kill their own if they can get away with blaming the Serbs.
The Serbs have no gain from this, so pass the blame onto someone else. Think about it, even the Serb hotheads wouldnt be this ignorant, the muslim fanatics would.
ma, I don't know who planted the bombs. I do know that there is a history in the Balkans of false flag ops and double & triple crosses and evidence planting and so on that is conducted by various groups trying to put the blame on others. So I don't rule out any group, but will wait and see what the investigation turns up.
I hope it's settled down enough in another thirty years to retire there. I'd love to go back, maybe for good.
SABAHUDIN S. ARRESTED ON SUSPICION OF PLANTING EXPLOSIVES IN POTOCARI
6.7.2005 20:35 SARAJEVO (Tanjug) - Tuzla Canton police, in cooperation with the Interior Ministry of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, have arrested Sabahudin S., of Srebnrenica, with temporary residence in Tuzla, on suspicion of planting the explosives discovered near the Memorial Center in Potocac.
It was a Muslim....!!!!
Isn't it time to look back at the events that unfolded prior to the endgame results of Srebrenica and the entire Bosnian Civil War?
Why don't you pin the blaming of the war onto Izetbegovic, you know, the one who backed out of the deal after Tudjman, Karadzic and Alija all signed the peace deal. Miraciously, the end result looks similar to their signatory deal, you know, the one Alija backed out and reneged. You know, the one that more or less said, we will have war.
TUZLA - Pripadnici MUP-ova Federacije BiH i Tuzlanskog kantona (TK), SIPA i OSA su u toku nochi 5. jula u Tuzli uhapsili bliskog prijatelja Nasera Oricha, Sabahudina Salihovicha, zvanog Mrcco, zbog sumnje da je umessan u postavljanje 35 kilograma eksploziva, koji je pronadjen u utorak u blizini Memorijalnog centra u Potoccarima pored Srebrenice, saznaje FoNet.
Translated by someone at Andy W.'s forum:
TUZLA - Members of MUP of Federation of BiH and Prosecutors of the Tuzla kton, SIPA and OSA, arrested last night Sabahudin Silahovic calles Mrcco close friend of Naser Oric, because of the suspition that he was involved in plantig 35 kg of the explosve, found Tuesday close to Memorial Centre Potocari near Srebrenica, FONET reports.
According to Bosnian Serb BN Television, European Union peacekeeping troops (EUFOR) alerted local police to the presence of the explosives by EUFOR, who allegedly presented satellite pictures of explosive being planted.
Muslims are the suspects. I'll bet they were looking for an excuse to start an all out war again and get rid of the RS (and the rest of the Serbs). The Muslim infantry is (and was even during the early '90s) the largest and has been highly trained and equipped in the last several years, while Serb have had most of their weapons destroyed.
By "set up" he was referring to the explosives planting. It appears the bombers were caught on satellite by the EU forces. Tuzla Muslims connected to Naser Oric - which means they were likely yet more Srebrenica soldiers who "miraculously" survived. Naser Oric and the top military leaders, around 17, left by helicopter months before the fall and didn't come back. The army also left their well-defended positions on ORDERS OF THE ACTING COMMANDER AND UN and started marching out before Serbs got the city outskirts.
Hoppy's been sabre-rattling about wiping the RS from the face of the earth so I wonder what he knew and when he knew it.
I wonder what stamps his passport would show?
Oh, he's going to be so miffed that the Serbs ruined his party plans!
What for? RS is already being dismantled by the international community, with help from the USA.
An if there was an explosion and deaths, it would have been another thing to demonize the Serbs with.
Then you have the news that the Muslims are connected with Naser Oric. Naser and his men were known to have control of the black market and terrorize and kill Muslims within Srebrenica. After the war, Naser Oric was involved in shady dealings and crimes as well. If indeed, the suspects are and were of his crowd, then they are simply criminals and would do these kinds of things.
Over 7000 wow!!
How many of them were Serbs killed by muslim gangs?
BRIEF DESCRIPTION: A truck ferrying a group of Serbs from Cicevac to Skelane was ambushed on the Srebrenica-Skelani road. This was the first collective massacre of Serbs from this municipality and the first ambush. The following persons were killed:
UNITED NATIONS Distr. GENERAL S/1994/548 9 May 1994 ORIGINAL: ENGLISH
There is no 7000 Bosnians (what ever that may be) with hands tied, shoot in the back. It did not happen; there is no proof period.
As for videotape of Serb forces shooting bound prisoners if that is your best proof, you are really in trouble.
Evidence that the Supposed Srebrenica Execution Video is a lie
Part 2 - The First Three Problems with the Srebrenica Execution Video are Location Location and Location
According to Soros backed Independent from Banja Luka one Sabahudina Salihovic close friend to Naser Oric - leader of Srebrenica terrorist - was arrested in Tuzla. Muslim police spokesperson said they believe that he is connected to planned attack. Two houses were searched. Serb police searched muslim house in vicinity of Bratunac. They planted explosive on the parking that was planned to be used for passenger cars.
According to Montenegro newspaper Dan, foreign military intelligence services and EUFOR send information to Serb police that there is bomb ready to be activated. They started searching early morning using dogs. Explosive was found close to place indented for commemoration. There was wrapped in plastic to prevent rain and moisture from damage mechanism.
According to Serbian TV whole area is cornered, reinforcements were sent and police is searching place.
Occupying forces refused to give any information or any detail concerning perpetrators or ongoing investigation. They do not want to say how many people were arrested or who is leading investigation. They even postponed indefinitely press conference scheduled for today. Until they conduct trough and complete investigation, they say, it is impossible to tell who is responsible and what is background to this incident!
Well, they did not wait for complete and trough investigation to accuse Serbs of genocide.
Ashdown was especially nervous he blamed Srpska police for unprofessional behavior. He talked to Interior Minister of Rep. Of Srpksa and ordered him to stop engaging in speculation in other words he told him stop accusing innocent, western leaning, good muslim. Police should not get involved in politics he said and first we must investigate everything and then we will draw conclusions. I guess he is pissed off because true nature of his friends is coming to world attention and all this talk of muslim terrorist is drawing attention of Srebrenica hoax story.
Media outlets, usually very anti-Serb, are absolutely silent; when information on muslim involment broke out Soros owned B92 stopped emitting this story as breaking news, comrade Kandic is very silent and so on and so forth.
If there was way to pin this on Serbs they would not be so quiet.
Is it not impossible that Croats are responsible for this terrorist act!
Can it be that the anti-Christians have been shamed into silence?
We shall see soon enough! If Hillary is doing press releases in the morning, then we know that the forces of truth must try harder.
OK. Sorry, Liberty--thought you were joining in with our Balkans version of Holocaust deniers.
Ive been on that road numerous times. During my inaugural ride, I coined the term "Srebrenica Screamer" due to its high altitude and the pain caused by it, 3 hrs of climbing (bike).
I saw evidence of fighting while there, on the road and various buildings. It is ideal for ambushing and hide positions.
The chinese better look out.
You mean the ones who attempt to deny the islamists ever did anything wrong? You running another recruiting drive, mark?
Given the news out of London, I think the cheerleaders for the islamofascists are probably doing other things today so we might not be hearing from them.
intel is coming in to find who the actors are, then the final planning will be acted upon.
Don't see that around here, but I do see those who deny the reality of Serb atrocities in the Balkans, even when there are witnesses, bodies, confessions, convictions, and Serb government admission of guilt such as for the Srebrenica massacre.
[FormerLib hands mark502inf a mirror]
A British defense expert says bombings in London were executed by at least 24 people and designed to mirror bombings last year in Madrid.
According to Italian media explosive and detonators for Madrid attack came from Bosnia. According to Croatian sources terrorist were trained in Bosnia where they get logistical support. According to Spanish sources Al- Qaeda chiefs in Spain maintained close and friendly relations to muslim Bosnia, which was used as launching pad for this and many other terrorist attacks. Zenica, for example, was and steel is important field of training for muyahidin.
38 people have been implicated in Madrid terrorist attack so far and 24 of them are directly charged. Of that number 1/3 fought in Bosnia where they acquired knowledge needed for 3/11. They probably got Bosniaks passports, like recently killed head of Al-Qaeda in Saudi Arabia..
I have little doubt than, when dust settles we will find that Bosnian muslim were instrumental in organizing and executing this attack. Crimes like London bombing were possible because third-rate failed politicians like Paddy Ashdown are pursuing politics of brotherhood and unity with muslim terrorist.
Western states have choice to continue this suicide politics of or they can wake up and smell the coffee.
It is not in fact possible for there to be any peace or coexistence between 'the Islamic Religion' and non-Islamic social and political institutions."
Alija Izetbegovic - Islamic Declaration, 1970
Live and learn.
Italian media, Croatian sources, Spanish sources and list goes on and on. I forget to include Slovenian Mladina. They claimed that Italian media found out that Madrid terrorist were trained in vicinity of Zenica and from Croatia they used Split-Ancona ferry line to go to Italia and later to Spain.
Go to any search engine and type bosnia bin laden, bosnia terror, bosnia al-qaeda or similar combination and you will get hundreds of pages in English. This is reason that 164 countries request visa for Bosnian citizens. Only 13 states, not one of them European, let you in if you are Bosniak.
So the Islamofascists and their toadies in the West threatened him until he capitulated. You think you can do that to us, rooster?
The truth will come out.
By the way, I was supposed to be in London next week, but it got called off. I have a personal stake in all of this, in more ways than one!!!
"Bosnian" apologists who gloat over the persecution of the good people of Republika Srpska are really cheerleading for the suicide of Judeo-Christian civilization!! The blue state in which I live, as well as my Lutheran church body, crawls with "Bosnian" apologists, so I am nearly immune to a little more such BS on FR. By the way, I started using the term "Bosnian apologist" after I saw it on a Spanish site discussing the aftermath of the Madrid attack. So even Spaniards are getting wise to the effects that these apologists have in diverting our attention from the danger from muslim "Bosnia".
