    Muslim Albanians in Kosovo are capturing Christians, dissecting them alive, tearing out their organs, killing the victims, and then selling the organs to Saudi Arabia and Turkey, the two major nations of the Antichrist. We learned this from a local Serbian Christian and veteran Special Forces officer in Serbia’s military, named Lazar. We interviewed him and this is the information he conveyed to us. He said “They also kill people and sell their organs in Turkey and Saudi Arabia.” He then said, They abduct people in Kosovo, Serbian people — in some cases Albanian people — and they take their...

    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.

    The small Protestant church in downtown Pristina has been around since 1985. Since then, its flock has grown to around 6,000 faithful, and 21 additional churches have been built around Kosovo. But the denomination faces ongoing barriers in a country where the majority religion is Islam, says the community's spiritual leader, Pastor Arthur Krasniqi. "In this part of the Balkans, among Albanians as well, religion has always played a role in, or [rather] has been abused by, politics for electoral or other purposes," he told SETimes. Protestants, he said, have to deal with an atmosphere of unease. "They are visited...

    Is he a terrorist or just a sick man? That is the question police and federal authorities are still asking after the arrest last week of George Djura Jakubec, whose rented house in Escondido, Calif., contained what local authorities called “the largest quantity of homemade explosives found in one location in the history of the United States.” Police entered the house after the arrest but later pulled back, citing the disarray and the amount of explosives, chemicals and other dangerous material scattered about the home. They returned again Thursday and, once again, decided the house was too dangerous to search.

    The Serbian Orthodox Christian religion embraces cherished traditions. Ornate churches trimmed in bright turquoise and gold leaf. Hand-painted icons, candles, and incense -- the sound of a priest who sings the prayers, and a choir who responds in four-part harmony. There are approximately fifty Serbian church choirs in the United States and Canada, and they are deeply linked to the Serbian identity. Through world wars, civil wars, and Communism, the choirs are a constant. In this series on Serbian choral music and its role within the church, Cissy Rebich returns to the Serbian community where she grew up, to see...

The Kosovo Serbs forced out of Decani Djakovica and Pec; also went to the graveyards in these Metohija towns, to mark the Orthodox Christian holiday of Zadušnice (All Souls' Day). In addition to desecrated tombstones, reports say that local Albanians subjected the Serbs to verbal threats and provocation, that included bottles thrown at them. Those who visited the Orthodox cemetery in southern Kosovska Mitrovica also found that some 80 percent of the graves there were vandalized,...

Pascha itself—the Holy Resurrection of Christ—was a turning point in the history of mankind. With His resurrection the...

The survey also found that the United States tops a list of countries Serbs consider "unfriendly." The poll, conducted last week among 1,500 adults by Marten Board International polling agency, showed that anti-U.S. sentiment endures here after the 1999 North Atlantic Treaty Organization bombing of Serbia over the Kosovo conflict. Although the armed forces of many E.U. members also took part in the air raids that halted Serbia's crackdown on ethnic Albanian separatists in Kosovo, as many as 78% of those polled expressed...

    A Serbian woman has been jailed for 18 months for marrying a dead man. Vinka Mijovic, 32, from Garas, was furious when wealthy Miodrag Tomovic, 68, died before he could marry her. So she bribed a local registrar to sign a marriage certificate saying the couple had both turned up for the wedding, and bribed two pals to be the best man and a witness to the fake event. She kept the death a secret for two weeks before suddenly announcing it and organising a lawyer to get his fortune turned over to her. But the scam was exposed after...

    There is a bloc of voters that may easily decide the forthcoming election. A little over a million Serbian-Americans—their exact number is uncertain but this is a conservative estimate—are likely to vote this year in greater numbers than ever before. The significance of this group becomes obvious if we look at its geographic distribution. After Chicago, the main Serbian-American centers are Pittsburgh, PA; Cleveland, OH; and Milwaukee, WI. There are thousands of retirees in Florida and sizeable pockets in St. Louis (MO) and suburban New Jersey. In each of those states the size of the community exceeds the likely margin...

Father Novice Cebic told AFP by telephone that around 15 people entered his home in the southeastern Bosnian town of Kopaci and searched the house for an hour as the priest's wife and three children stood by. They even looked in the washing machine, Cebic said. The NATO-led Stabilisation Force (SFOR) said they were acting on a tip off and admitted finding nothing. SFOR has...
