    Jerusalem Post ^ | Nay 7, 2008 | SETH J. FRANTZMAN
    On a pleasant Thursday in December 1948, Emilio Traubner, a correspondent for The Palestine Post, found himself near Abu Kabir, not far from Jaffa. Trenches and expended cartridges were strewn about, reminders of the fighting between units of the Irgun and local Arab forces that had taken place there seven months previously. There was a large Arab villa from where Traubner recovered a diary. It turned out to be the daily record of Yusuf Begovic of Pale, a town near Sarajevo in modern-day Bosnia-Herzegovina. In it Begovic had described his activities as a cook for the "Arab Army of Liberation."...

    Six Bosnian immigrants have been accused of sending money and equipment to terrorists oversees, including fighters with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group and al-Qaida in Iraq, the U.S. attorney’s office announced Feb. 6. An indictment unsealed Feb. 6 in St. Louis said the defendants donated money themselves and in some cases collected funds from others in the U.S. and sent the donations oversees. It says two of the defendants used some of the money to buy U.S. military uniforms, firearms accessories, tactical gear and other equipment, which was shipped to people in Turkey and Saudi...

    Six Bosnian natives who immigrated to the U.S. sent money and military equipment to support Al Qaeda in Iraq and the Islamic State terror group, the Justice Department said Friday night. The conspiracy, which authorities say dates back to May 2013, supported Abdullah Ramo Pazara and others fighting with the terror groups, according to a federal indictment. The suspects sent multiple payments using PayPal, as well as U.S. military uniforms, combat boots, tactical clothing and gear, military surplus goods, firearms accessories, rifle scopes and first aid supplies to Turkey. The supplies and money eventually made their way to fighters in...

    On November 30, four teens jumped a man in south St. Louis, using hammers to beat him to death. According to the St. Louis Bosnian, the victim was 32-year-old Zemir Begic. He was sitting in his car around 1 a.m. when the teens began banging on it. He stepped out of the car, and the teens attacked him until he was unconscious then left him for dead. Begic died, and surveillance video led to the capture of two of the suspects. One of them is 15 and the other is 16 years of age. This senseless beating death—which came on...

Highlights about the infamous Arab Muslim leader from Palestine Jihad on the west During the 1920 and 1930s.

    (The Bleiburg memorial, with the Ustasha and Muslim symbols, dedicated "In memory of the innocent victims of the Bleiburg tragedy, May 1945") At the end of February, Al-Jazeera showed an interview with Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic, currently on trial before the ICTY in The Hague. It was done as part of a 40-minute report with Rageh Omaar. The report opened with the rows of green funeral shrouds, wailing Muslim women, and the rows of names on the Potocari monument, near Srebrenica. The images that follow suggest that the Serbs rounded up some eight thousand civilians, and shot them in...

    Atrocity stories are a classic and effective way to motivate hatred against an enemy you are out to destroy. Poland attacked Germany on 1 September 1939, right? The British press in 1914 had "Huns" raping every maiden in Belgium. The "Ulster Massacre of 1641" was a hoax by London to foment hatred of the Irish; it was intended to "justify" all-out war for centuries on the Irish, citing numbers of victims that were astronomically in excess of the number of Protestants in Ireland. And then there's that big hit 'The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" which "proved" that Jews...

    When President Clinton decided to bomb the Serbs and to protect the Bosnians and also protect the Albanians who were flooding into Kosovo, I supported him although I had reservations. After all weren’t the Serbs on our side in World War II, and weren’t they Christians fighting off Muslims? Didn’t Serbs save Jews from the Holocaust killings carried out by Bosnians? I supported him because I didn’t really understand that the conflict in the former Yugoslavia was really part of the world-wide battle against Islamic jihad. I supported him because he was the President of the United States, and an...

    The roughly 5000 unspeakable acts of murder and mayhem committed by Islamofascist terrorists on innocent people just since 9/11 have got me wondering – did we come in on the wrong side in the conflict between the Serbians (Christians) and the Bosnians (Muslims) in the former Yugoslavia, and have we and the western world gone after the wrong group of war criminals? I am well aware of the horrendous barbarities committed by the Serbians against the Bosnians and others, but do we really know what transpired to drive them to these acts before the conflict aroused our interest? I admit...

    At the center of the cases is the Romani culture, brought here in recent years by immigrants from the Balkan region, people mostly from Bosnia or Albania. Though the practice often skirts the law here, the tradition of Romani girls marrying in their teens is for some families so important they resist changing their ways. Even with their parents' consent, teens cannot legally marry in North Dakota or Minnesota until they turn 16.
