    BERLIN, FEBRUARY 13: A moving drama about Bosnia's post-war trauma and the lingering impact of the systematic rape of Bosnian women by Serb soldiers won cheers at its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival on Sunday. Grbavica spotlights a hushed-up topic of mass rapes in Bosnia during the siege of Sarajevo with a tear-jerking story of a Muslim woman who tries to hide the grisly truth of the past to protect her daughter. The film, seen by critics as one of the Berlinale's best so far, is told against the backdrop of Sarajevo's struggle to come to terms with...

Nicholas Burns, undersecretary of state, told a Senate hearing the US was neither championing independence nor autonomy for Kosovo. But diplomats said his testimony was a clear signal the US looked favourably on independence, under certain conditions. In what diplomats also called a significant policy statement, Mr Burns made clear the US had no objection to independence...

    Brcko, 28 Sept. (AKI) - Croats in the northeastern Bosnian town of Brcko have asked local authorities to protect them, after receiving threats from an extremist Islamic group in the nearby village of Gornja Maoca, local media reported today. Brcko is a multi-ethnic town under international control, with a mixed Muslim, Croat and Serb population, but a community of Wahhabi Muslims has settled nearby, preaching the most radical form of Islam. Bosnia's majority Muslim population has radicalised since the 1992-1995 civil war when hundreds of mujahadeen from other Muslim countries came to fight on their side - with many remaining...

    Following five years of United Nations control and billions of dollars of international aid, Kosovo is a lawless region "owned" by the Albanian mafia, characterized by continuing ethnic cleansing and subject to increasing infiltration by al Qaeda-linked Muslim jihadists, according to a whistleblower interviewed by Cybercast News Service.

When Weldon first made the charge in a new book and in a June speech on the House floor, it met with little attention, but perhaps due to the August heat or the approaching fourth anniversary of the attacks, the accusation ignited controversy last week.

With all due respect, Mr. Molyviatis is way off base. "Remain multiethnic"? Multiethnicity in Kosovo died when President Clinton supported Osama bin Laden's Kosovo Liberation Army, an army of which The Washington Times' own Jerry Seper wrote in May 1999, "Some members of the Kosovo Liberation Army, which has financed its war effort through the sale of heroin, were trained in terrorist camps run by international fugitive Osama bin Laden."

That is hard to credit, as he sits calmly in his spacious office in Kosovo's capital, Pristina. His neatly pressed blue shirt, red silk tie and buffed brogues are in stark contrast to the mud-spattered camouflage he wore six years ago, when he was a senior commander in the Kosovo Liberation Army, which fought a vicious war against the troops of Yugoslavia's (and Serbia's) former president, Slobodan Milosevic.

The new PM brings some troubling baggage to the position, however. Most recently, he has been questioned, twice, by Carla del Ponte the head of the International War Crimes Tribunal at the Hague.

    Bosnia - Mujahedeen Adventure in Bosnia by Charlene Cowling, photos by Darko Zeljkovic 05.19.04 My heart is pumping and I can feel the anxiety rolling around in my gut, oily and slick. It creeps up in to the back of my throat and I have to use everything in my power to shove it back down to a more manageable level. It percolates there, but, at least I can finally force myself to think. We approach the Mujahedeen (Muslim extremists) on foot, having trashed our initial plan of shooting images from the nearby consecrated grounds of the Serbian Church. This,...

    Swedish KFOR General Warns About Total Ethnic Cleansing of Serbs   By Anders Brännström May 18, 2004 "Do not abandon Kosovo!" Unless the Serbian minority is protected by a strong international military force, the part of the Kosovo Albanian population that is prone to violence will ethnically cleanse anything Serbian out of Kosovo as soon as it gets an opportunity. Until the violent riots in March, the external world believed that the situation in Kosovo had become stabilized. There were plans to strongly reduce the peacekeeping KFOR troops. Thanks to the disarmament not having gone very far, it was possible...

    15 May 2004 -- The commander of NATO forces in southern Europe says the alliance's peacekeeping force in Kosovo is changing the way it conducts its missions in the aftermath of a serious outbreak of ethnic violence. During a one-day visit on 15 May, Admiral Gregory Johnson said the 19,000-strong peacekeeping force is changing its way of patrolling and communicating with locals in the province. He offered no other details on what the changes would entail. But he called on Kosovo's bitterly divided communities to help in the "healing process" and to work jointly in creating a multiethnic society. In...

    Albania, a predominantly Muslim country, told the United States it was prepared to send more non-combat troops to Iraq (news - web sites), the government said Monday, in a possible expansion of the 71-member-strong contingent patrolling the northern city of Mosul under U.S. command. Despite the small number of Albanian forces, the public commitment from Tirana was bound to be welcome news to the United States after Spain's weekend announcement that it was withdrawing its 1,300-member contingent as soon as possible. Albanian Foreign Minister Kastriot Islami made the offer Friday in a letter to Secretary of State Colin Powell (news...

    Mrs. Alice Mahon (Halifax) (Lab): I, too, will try to cut my speech down and keep it brief. We had to deploy an extra 750 troops to Kosovo last week. The entire violent episode exposed the character of the Albanian separatists, some with terrorist and criminal links, who are now in leading positions of power in that province. The Kosovo Liberation Army never disbanded. It simply became the Kosovo Protection Corps. Agim Ceku—I name him again—the man who ethnically cleansed the Krajina, is in charge of the Kosovo Protection Corps. I agree with my hon. Friend the Member for Ilford,...

    The American Thinker ^ | April 19, 2004 | Michael Morris
    The cold-blooded killing of two female American police officers serving with the UN in Kosovo must be fully investigated, and the four Jordanian-dispatched  police assailants — minus the dead one — who were allegedly responsible for the unprovoked shooting, need to stand trial for first degree murder. Undoubtedly, the UN will try to negotiate with the US government, on behalf of Jordan, to save the kingdom and the UN itself, from further embarrassment and shame. The Bush administration should stand firm and reject any compromise intended to sweep this disgusting incident of anti-Americanism under the carpet. Already, we’ve had the...

    So Clinton couldn't bomb Islamic terrorists but he could bomb Christian Serbs? Tim Russert devoted an hour to interviewing former White House counterterrorism official Richard Clarke.  But some controversial claims that go to the heart of Clinton's so-called "war on terrorism" were unchallenged.  One was Clarke's claim that Clinton didn't bomb al Qaeda camps in Afghanistan because "there were lots of other things going on in the world…"  Clarke claimed that Clinton "had the Middle East peace process close to an agreement.  He was bombing in Serbia.  He was bombing in Iraq.  In retrospect, with 20/20 hindsight, people now understand...

    We bombed the wrong side? Lewis MacKenzie Five years ago our television screens were dominated by pictures of Kosovo-Albanian refugees escaping across Kosovo's borders to the sanctuaries of Macedonia and Albania. Shrill reports indicated that Slobodan Milosevic's security forces were conducting a campaign of genocide and that at least 100,000 Kosovo-Albanians had been exterminated and buried in mass graves throughout the Serbian province. NATO sprung into action and, in spite of the fact no member nation of the alliance was threatened, commenced bombing not only Kosovo, but the infrastructure and population of Serbia itself -- without the authorizing United Nations...

    PRAGUE - Czech diplomat Jiri Dienstbier assessed that that only solution for Kosovo is decentralization, that is, the forming of self-governing districts by ethnic groups, whereas "gifted" independence would only represent a risk for all of Europe. In a commentary published today in the Prague daily "Pravo", Diensbier assessed that, in the event of independence, the extremists would not be content just with Kosovo. "UNMIK chief consoles himself that the Albanian leaders have condemned violence," writes the former human rights rapporteur for the former Yugoslavia, adding that these condemnations, however, cover "only attacks on international forces, civil and religious objects...

    BELGRADE, Serbia-Montenegro (AP) - Four ethnic Albanian children told a court Wednesday how Serb forces rounded up and gunned down their families with automatic weapons in one of the most brutal acts of the 1998-99 Kosovo war. Their testimony came during the trial of a Serb police officer accused of leading an assassination squad through their community during the war. The children, who were said to have positively identified the officer, Sasa Cvjetan, in his prison cell Tuesday, watched as Serb troops slaughtered 19 ethnic Albanian relatives, including their mothers, siblings and grandparents, on March 28, 1999, in the town...
