    The curfew in Serbia appears to have ended before it could even begin. Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić suggested Wednesday that the country would "probably" not reinstate a curfew this weekend, less than a day after its announcement led to bloodshed in the capital. The country's health ministry clarified that officials have yet to make a final decision, even as new cases have surged. Demonstrators gathered overnight in Belgrade to protest the coronavirus-prevention measure, some clashing with police outside parliament and even trying to storm the building. Dozens of people were injured in the violence, which Vučić blamed primarily on "right-wing...

    Al-Qaida Plot Revealed in Sarajevo Sat Mar 23,10:48 AM ET By ALEXANDAR S. DRAGICEVIC, Associated Press Writer SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) - Al-Qaida terrorists planned a devastating attack on Americans in Sarajevo after meeting in Bulgaria to identify European targets, a high-ranking Bosnian official said Saturday. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press that intelligence reports on the meeting in Sofia, the Bulgarian capital, prompted a special government session Thursday night to discuss threats against the U.S. Embassy and embassies of European countries. He did not name the countries. At the Sofia meeting, members of al-Qaida...
  • 1389: Saint Tsar Lazar, after the Battle of Kosovo

    06/14/2020 7:48:58 PM PDT · by CheshireTheCat · 6 replies ^ | June 15, 2009 | Headsman
    On this date (by the Julian calendar then in use) in 1389, Stefan Lazar Hrebeljanovic thats Tsar Lazar to you led the armies of Moravian Serbia against the expanding Ottoman Empire at the Battle of Kosovo. The Serbs were defeated thereby plunging, in the national mythology, into a half-millennium of Turkish domination. Lazar was supposedly* captured and beheaded. For a generation, Lazar had firmed up his authority as the most significant Serbian autocrat outside the Ottoman orbit. The gravity of that orbit, however, grew more powerful with each passing year; soon, it would devour Byzantium

    Serbia: Muslim migrants rob Belgrade churchgoers in the middle of church service JUN 7, 2020 4:00 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER “According to the latest update of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), there are currently 8,052 migrants in Serbia, the majority of them in 19 refugee centers across the country. Their stated countries of origin are Afghanistan, Syria, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Iraq, Iran, Morocco and Palestine.” Hmmm, what do all those countries (and “Palestine”) have in common? Could it be an ideology that holds Christianity in contempt and considers Christians “the most vile of created beings” (cf. Qur’an 98:6)?...

    The Los Angeles Galaxy parted company with midfielder Aleksandar Katai on Friday, days after the player's wife sparked outrage with a series of racist social media posts. A single sentence statement posted on the Galaxy's website said former Serbia international Katai had now left the club by mutual agreement. It came after Katai's wife Tea had mocked the Black Lives Matter movement and urged violence against people protesting the death of George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer. The posts on Instagram were subsequently deleted after the Galaxy condemned them as "racist and violent".

    Mihailovic hinders Rommel May 8, 2014 By Miloslav Samardzic Mihailovic and Rommel The first known German broadsheet announcing the executions of Serbs due to railway sabotage is dated June 12, 1942. On that day, the Germans shot three rail workers in Smederevo, claiming they had destroyed the brakes on a train. US Col. Robert McDowell, the most educated Allied officer in Yugoslavia during the war, says that any true history of WW2 should mention 1942 as the year of the great Yugoslav, or Serb, counterattack. Gen. Mihailovic knew that America would join the war, having heard it from President...

    General Dragoljub Draza Mihailovich THIS WAS GENERAL DRAZA MIHAILOVICH There is no grave site. There is no marker for his remains. It is as if they wanted to remove him not just from the earth but from the history of his country and the consciousness of his people. But they failed. Nowhere is this more evident than in those hills of Serbia they call Ravna Gora. And it is in those Ravna Gora hills where the true soul and spirit of Serbia can still be found. July 17th is an important day for those who knew who he was and...

    On Tuesday, April 13, the Holy Synod of the Serbian Orthodox Church petitioned the state to lift the recently-instituted curfew this coming weekend so the Orthodox faithful can celebrate the Lords Resurrection. In addition to a curfew from 5:00 PM to 5:00 AM, President Vucic also banned all movement from 5:00 PM Saturday to 5:00 AM Monday two weeks ago, thus wholly depriving the people of the ability to attend the Sunday Divine Liturgy. After the new measures, the services began to be celebrated without parishioners, although they were celebrated with respect to all the relevant sanitary and safety measures...

    Serbian president Aleksandar Vučić on Sunday blasted the European Union for refusing to export medical equipment to Serbia in the midst of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic. Serbia is currently applying to become an E.U. member. Vučić said that because Serbia was unable to bring in E.U. medical equipment, the country could only seek the help of China. The president asked China to send “everything…even to send us doctors, [because] our doctors are already tired.” “We will be begging [Chinese citizens] to come and help us with everything,” Vučić said.

    When Vladimir Putin visits Istanbul on January 8, the Russian president will be doing more than officially opening a new export pipeline -- he will be getting some more closure on his longstanding dream to end Moscow's dependence on archrival Ukraine in getting natural gas to Europe. Russia has been seeking to cut gas transit through Ukraine since the mid 2000s, and the $7.8 billion TurkStream pipeline project is a big part of that strategic goal. The pipeline, which transits the Black Sea and surfaces outside Istanbul, took five years to complete and is one of two major new natural-gas...

    The controversy over President Trumps pullout on the TurkishSyrian border will settle down quickly. It is another useful debunking of ancient shibboleths and decrepit truisms, like the long-impregnable encrustation of false wisdom that moving the U.S embassy in Israel to Jerusalem would unleash hell upon the whole Middle East. There are about 35 million Kurds, approximately half of them in Turkey, where they make up about a fifth of Turkeys population. A century ago almost all the Kurds had been in the Ottoman Empire, which the Allied powers broke up after World War I, a foolish decision that is on...

    BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) Romania has blocked a Russian military shipment of battle tanks and armored vehicles to Serbia because of international sanctions that are in place against Russia over its actions in Ukraine. The Romanian Foreign Ministry said in a statement Friday that it could not issue a transit permit for the shipment due to a European Union embargo introduced in 2014. The statement gave no more details. Serbian officials complained earlier this month that NATO-member Romania had prevented the delivery of some 60 Russian secondhand tanks and armored vehicles that were to be shipped from Russia via the...

    You may ask yourself, is it worth one of the best American non-fiction writers producing a book of just under 600 pages on an arrogant and abrasive egotist whose highest sustained rank in the State Department was that of a lowly assistant secretary? The answer is unabashedly yes. This is a remarkable work about a remarkable, if deeply flawed, statesman whose career was intimately intertwined with the 50 years of American decline from Vietnam to Afghanistan. Nearly all biographies have long, boring stretches you want to skip. This one has none. The access to Richard Holbrookes papers and to the...
