    Serbian diplomat, and friend of Christopher Stevens, says State Department knowingly sent gay ambassador to Libya. Arab media says ambassador Stevens was gang raped and then his body was put on display. Hillary Clinton has been spending US taxpayer dollars to fund homosexual pride events in foreign countries. Her actions have prompted backlashes against the US in Italy, Russia, Pakistan, and other nations. Last year, Barack Obama made it official US policy to fund homosexual rights groups overseas with US tax-dollars. In Pakistan, the staff of the US embassy in Islamabad was placed in serious danger after being ordered to...

    Police in Bosnia have arrested five people suspected of trafficking arms to Islamists in Sweden and seized large amounts of weapons and military equipment, officials said on Friday, after a sixth person was held earlier in Sweden. The arrests were made on Thursday during raids on seven locations in northwestern Bosnia by a police counter-terrorism unit in Bosnia's autonomous Serb Republic, said Mirna Miljanovic, head spokeswoman at the region's interior ministry. Miljanovic said the action was in cooperation with Swedish police as part of an international operation codenamed "Wolf RS". All five arrested on Thursday were Bosnian Serbs, and the...

    War in Context ^ | July 25, 2011 | Paul Woodward
    In his manifesto, 2083 A European Declaration of Independence, Anders Behring Breivik — who will soon go on trial for murdering at least 93 fellow Norwegians — writes: Solo-cell systems in combination with martyrdom is the most efficient and deadly form of modern warfare. This strategy was adapted by Jihadist groups. And now we will be using it as well. It is even more valuable to us as we enjoy more “invisibility” than individuals who have Arabic/Asian appearance and customs. This compendium of his writings, whose promotion was his central objective, describes in great detail the lonely pursuit of his...

    (AKI) – Former Kosovo president Bedzet Pacoli said on Friday his successor Atifete Jahjaga, who was elected by parliament, was in fact handpicked by the US ambassador to Pristina Christopher Dell. Pacoli spent only one month in office and resigned last month after the constitutional court ruled the there had been irregularities in his election. To break the political deadlock, the ruling Democratic Party of Kosovo, its coalition partner Alliance for new Kosovo and the opposition Democratic Alliance of Kosovo had agreed to field Jahjaga as a joint candidate. But Pacoli told Pristina channel “TV Clan”, Jahjaga actually wasn’t a...

    LEXINGTON, Ky. — U.S. authorities have arrested a 51-year-old Croatian-born woman in Kentucky who is accused of war crimes against civilians during the Bosnian civil war in the 1990s. Azra Basic, who was living in Stanton, Ky., is accused of torturing and murdering ethnic Serbs at prison camps from April to June 1992. Bosnia and Herzegovina officials want Basic returned to that country to stand trial Eyewitnesses Radojica Garic and Dragan Kovacevic said Basic murdered Blagoje Djuras, who had been beaten to unconsciousness by Croatian police and soldiers, by slitting his throat with a knife, according to a court document....

    The Republicans really botched an opportunity to destroy the Tranzi Progressives. Many leftists like John Kerry, Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer and others were calling for the US to set up a no fly zone over Libya. Instead of hammering the Democrats for wanting us to get involved in conflict where there are no US interest, Republicans like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Mitt Romney, John Bolton, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Bill Kristol, Mike Huckabee and others agreed and even tried to use this to paint Obama as weak. Despite all this bipartisan propaganda most Americans are against getting involved......

    Serbfest celebrates Serbian traditions and Eastern Orthodox beliefs. But the priest at Holy Trinity Serbian Eastern Orthodox Church, which was established a century ago, also made a point Saturday to express his love of the United States. "The more you know about America, the more you love it," the Rev. Radomir Chkautovich, who fled socialist Yugoslavia in 1963, said with an accent. Chkautovich, a retired U.S. Navy lieutenant commander and chaplain, regularly leads tours of his church during Serbfest to explain its history and Serbian traditions....

Mr. Jibilian, of Fremont Ohio, and surviving members of the Tuskegee Airmen, the pioneering squadron of black fighter pilots, were honored here yesterday at AirVenture 2009 for their roles in Operation Halyard, the greatest rescue of downed American airmen in World War II.

    PARIS — Every time Radovan Karadzic, the onetime Bosnian Serb leader, appears in court on war crimes charges, he has hammered on one recurring claim: a senior American official pledged that he would never be standing there. The official, Richard C. Holbrooke, now a special envoy on Afghanistan and Pakistan for the Obama administration, has repeatedly denied promising Mr. Karadzic immunity from prosecution in exchange for abandoning power after the Bosnian war......

    The fate of the 14th-century abbey, one of the best-preserved medieval churches in the Balkans, has been darkened by ethnic violence. Time stands still within the Visoki Decani Monastery, nestled among chestnut groves at the foot of the Prokletije Mountains in western Kosovo. Declared a World Heritage Site in 2004, Unesco cited the 14th-century abbey as an irreplaceable treasure, a place where "traditions of Romanesque architecture meet artistic patterns of the Byzantine world." The Serbian Orthodox monastery represents, according to art historian Bratislav Pantelic, author of a book on Decani's architecture, "the largest and best-preserved medieval church in the entire...

    Saudi fighter killed GAZA CITY: A Saudi Arabian who went to the Gaza Strip to fight alongside Hamas was killed during Israel’s offensive in the Palestinian territory, several Islamic websites reported yesterday. Abu Mohammed Al Marri, who reportedly arrived in Gaza 10 days before the start of the Israeli offensive, “has become a martyr in the land of Gaza,” the websites said. The man, from a town in eastern Saudi Arabia, was a veteran of battles against Russian troops in Afghanistan and in Chechnya as well as against Serb and Croat forces in Bosnia, the websites said.

    BRUSSELS -- Kosovo's unilateral independence declaration turned into a debacle and a bad precedent, European Voice writes. In her column for this independent Brussels-based publication, Ilana Bet-El criticizes the EU for what she describes as "disarray over Kosovo, starting from the unilateral declaration of independence in February". "It was an ill-conceived, amateurishly handled move, lacking consensus in the EU and in the international arena. Regardless of whether Kosovo deserved independence or not, the reasoning behind it was contorted at the best of times, laying open the deep global divisions over international law and its application," Bet-El says. "From a narrowly...

Automatic gunfire was heard as an Albanian-owned store was set on fire near the bridge on the Ibar River which divides Kosovska Mitrovica into its northern, predominantly Serb, and southern, Albanian part. The victim, Nikola BoĀ˛ović, was taken to hospital with a 10-centimeter stab wound apparently in the lumbar area of his back. Doctor TrajĨe Bogeski said that the boy was...

    At a time when the U.S. power and authority are increasingly challenged around the world, the incoming team sees the Balkans as the last geopolitically significant area where they can assert their “credibility” by postulating a maximalist set of objectives as the only outcome acceptable to the United States, and duly insisting on their fulfilment. We have already seen this pattern with Kosovo, and it is to be expected that we’ll see its replay in Bosnia under the new team....... There have been strong pressures from the West, ever since the signing of the Dayton Accords 13 years ago, to...

One witness in the investigation into the trafficking of organs of Serb prisoners from Kosovo in 1998, mentioned the doctor’s name in regards to the case, according to Blic. “The witness told Serbian war crimes prosecutors that he saw Doctor Ljutvi Dervishi at locations where it was suspected that organs had been extracted from civilian prisoners and sold later,” Blic’s source stated. “He was now arrested with a scalpel in his hand, and it's obvious that they have continued...

    An American analyst believes that the Balkans, with the exception of Kosovo, will hardly feature among the new U.S. administration's foreign policy priorities. Senior Fellow at the Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs in New York Jonathan Clarke explained that Kosovo will be an exception because of the implications it may have on the Transcaucasus. "I think that the Balkans will be at the bottom of the list of our priorities," Tanjug quoted him as saying. But, he continued, since Russia will be one of the top priorities - because of the Russian gas, Moscow's relations Brussels and Russia's...

    Sarajevo, 29 Oct. (AKI) - The top international representative in Bosnia, Miroslav Lajcak, said on Wednesday the country must speed up reforms in order to overcome political deadlock and economic stagnation. “It’s high time for leaders and members of parliament in Bosnia-Herzegovina to speed up the reforms needed for European integration,” Lajcak said. He pointed out that political quarrels between local Muslim, Serb and Croat leaders have blocked the reforms and stalled the country’s drive towards membership in the European Union. “The European Union has invested a lot to secure stability in Bosnia-Herzegovina and we should not allow anyone to...

    When did you become interested in Balkan crisis? In March of 1999, when there was suddenly talk of America bombing a European country, I became very suspicious. Particularly because the president was a clown named Bill Clinton who had gotten into trouble too many times. It was obvious to me that this was being done against national interest and in Bill Clinton’s interest. I couldn’t believe that this was actually going to happen, that it was unstoppable. Everything started to feel surreal; my husband and I were going through life day to day as if just existing, just going through...
