KOSOVO - a land being Islamized by the United States, NATO and United Nations. ^ | October 2011 | Lee Jay Walker

Posted on 10/06/2011 6:23:16 AM PDT by Ravnagora

Since World War Two you have had three major conflicts in the Balkans involving Orthodox Christian communities and Islamic communities; this applies to Cyprus, Bosnia and Kosovo respectively. On all three occasions the United States supported the followers of Islam and maybe one day the same will happen to Orthodox Christians in Macedonia?

Yet unlike the large Christian communities of Bosnia and Cyprus, it is the land of Kosovo which is being Islamized and Albanianized under NATO, the UN, and other international institutions who are meant to be neutral. The media in the West is once more turning a 'blind eye' and information about dead Serbians is not deemed to be important. Therefore, ethnic cleansing 'Albanian style' is being allowed to gather pace and in time a split may emerge between European members of NATO and the United States, for it would appear that the United States will one day allow Kosovo to become either independent or to join with Albania; whereas France and other European nations may oppose the United States.

However, stories about Serbians and Roma being killed and persecuted in Kosovo should be told, for their lives count and if democracy and liberalism means anything, then Serbians, Roma, and other non-Albanians must have liberty and religious freedom. Given this, it is important to understand that both Islamization and Albanianization is taking place in modern day Europe, alongside American complicity, which ignited the conflict between Serbians and Albanians in the first place. It is also worth remembering that Turkish nationalism destroyed Christianity in Turkey in 1915, and Albanian nationalism in Kosovo could easily do the same if allowed.

Therefore, people like Marica Maric are important and her death, like countless other Serbian Orthodox Christians and Roma people, should be told. For Marica Maric was raped in her home in Belo Polje and then disfigured after being murdered. Her crime was being a Christian and non-Albanian in Kosovo, yet her death, and countless others, went unnoticed in the West.

In the region of Istok the situation was much worse, for 40 Serbian corpses were found in a single day, including the body of Father Stefan from Budisavac monastery; and only last week two Christian Serbs were killed for merely swimming in a contested region. More alarming, American troops, NATO troops, and the UN stood by and watched 180,000 Serbian Christians and thousands of Roma being ethnically cleansed. For in American controlled areas, like Urosevac, the entire Christian population was forced to leave and American troops allowed Albanians to either destroy Serbian homes or to move into their property. This was ethnic cleansing 'Albanian style' and given American inaction, it could be argued 'American style?'

Getting back to today, it is clear that Serbians and non-Albanians in Kosovo are living in reservations, and it would appear that complete Serbian ethnic cleansing would solve the situation; for the United States lacks either the will or desire to protect Christians in Kosovo in the long-term. Therefore, the destruction of hundreds of Christian churches and monasteries have been allowed to take place; and just like the Armenian and Assyrian Christians who were annihilated by Turkish and Kurdish Muslims in 1915; it is also important to destroy Christian places of worship and cultural buildings in order to one day create a 'pure Albanian Islamic Kosovo.'

Of course many ordinary American troops and other NATO members, and members of the European Union, do not agree with the United States; and this applies to allowing either an Islamic Kosovo or joining up with Albania. And His Grace Amfilohije, Orthodox Christian leader, stated that '. . . had it not been for the presence of the international forces in Kosovo at this very moment in Pec, as well as Decani and Gracanica, they too, would have been reduced to rubble and turned into ashes.'

However, Serbians and non-Albanians on the whole can not be protected all over Kosovo, therefore, the international community allowed hundreds of thousands of non-Albanians to be cleansed from their land. Given this, one day you may only hear the Islamic call to prayer in Kosovo and witness a near 100% Albanian Islamic land. It is, therefore, ironic that the Ottoman Empire could not fully crush Christian resistance in this region, despite enslaving tens of thousands of young Christian boys for centuries and converting them to Islam; yet since American intervention this land is being emptied of Christians and all non-Albanians.

Therefore, just like Christian migrants who have fled Iraq in their hundreds of thousands since the first American conflict with Iraq, and who today fear Iraq being turned into an Islamic state; it is apparent that Christian civilians mean little in both Kosovo and Iraq. For both communities have been left to fend for themselves and if Kosovo is to share a similar fate to that of Iraq, then the future is very bleak for Christians in these lands. This will also mean that both Christian communities have been forced to migrate because of short-term American objectives.

Given this, then why did America support Islam three times out of three against Orthodox Christian communities in the Balkans? And why is America seen to be anti-Muslim, when in reality the Untied States is not only an ally of Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and other Islamic nations, but America also helped Islam to obtain a major foothold in Europe, so why is America deemed to be anti-Islamic? More important, why did the United States and NATO allow the ethnic cleansing of non-Albanians in Kosovo? For the purpose of American intervention was meant to be based on human-rights and protecting a persecuted minority; yet the same nation allowed Christian civilians to be persecuted and allowed Saudi Arabia and other nations to send vast resources to Bosnia and Kosovo, why?

The Clintons launched an unprovoked war of aggression against a friendly distant state.They cynically wrapped their campaign in humanitarianism while ignoring worse slaughters elsewhere. They arrogantly assumed that foreign officials would genuflect before him.

At National Defense University in a speech the male Clinton likened events in Kosovo to those in Nazi Germany: a “vicious, premeditated, systematic oppression fueled by religious and ethnic hatred.”

That is pure cant. This evil administration had nothing against “vicious, premeditated, systematic oppression” if committed by allies, like Croatia and Turkey. Or if committed against black Africans. Moreover, as ugly as the Kosovo conflict was, it was no Nazi Holocaust but a minor civil war, with casualties a fraction of those occurring in such places as Kashmir and Sri Lanka. President Clinton studiously averts his gaze from places, like Rwanda, where real genocide occurs.

Once it became clear that the administration was intent on effectively stripping Yugoslavia of the province of Kosovo, however, the Yugoslavians, unsurprisingly, lashed out. Indeed, allied bombing turned all Kosovars—whose leaders publicly lobbied for NATO intervention—into enemies of the Serbs.

Serbs must declare Serbia a Christian nation and give all those Christians who have been forced out by the empire the right of return. They should build Christian settlements in Kosovo and set up military check points in the region. The empire will NEVER EVER allow Serbs to determine their own future and protect their own people. NEVER! They want to wipe the identity of the Christian Serb off the map.

so why is America deemed to be anti-Islamic?

Simple, because America is not yet, a part of the Caliphate.

Time for a crusade! Time for the Christians to become vocal and quit letting the socialists of the world make their decisions.

The Clintons did much to advance the Communist Chinese and the Muslims.

He allowed our MIRV technology to be given to Red China for campaign cash and he refused to accept Osama bin Laden when handed to him on a platter. He ignored many Muslim attacks on us, including the Murrah Building in OKC and Flt. 800 in NY. He set up 911 with his inactions and then let Bush take the blame. The war in the Balkans was strictly to advance the Muslim cause.

The Clintons are as evil as Obama.

A shameful fact of history. The Islamic Republic of America has showed it's true colors and it is a Red Crescent.

Thanks for the link and World Net Daily is considered a conservative website. However, I can’t believe that Bush supported the Muslims over Christians unless he was being fed bad information.

Clinton converted all his political appointees to regular Civil Service jobs, meaning they can’t be fired, just before he left office. George Tenet, head of the CIA, was also a Clinton hold over as was the head of the FBI.

Bush never seemed to grasp how evil the Democrats are and kept thinking he could cooperate with them and trust them like he did some Texas Democrats.

That bit him in the butt numerous times.

Dear MNR, Here is information sent to President Bush letter from Orthodox Bishop of Raška-Prizren and Kosovo-Metohija 18.02.2006. Gračanica Monastery (found on many sites on the internet)

Orthodox Bishop of Raška-Prizren and Kosovo-Metohija 18.02.2006. Gračanica Monastery

The Honorable George W. Bush The White House Washington, District of Columbia

Dear Mr. President:

I take the opportunity to write to you at the conclusion of my latest visit to your great country. Knowing the numberless pressing responsibilities that weigh upon you, I thank you in advance for taking the time to read this plea on behalf of my flock, the Orthodox Christian people of Kosovo. Since I know you are yourself a Christian, I can only pray that what I relate to you here will find a resonance with you that cannot be attributed solely to the justifications of state policy and global strategy but will be illumined for you by the true Light, which is Christ our God.

Foremost among your duties – and especially since September 11, 2001, – you have carried the heaviest of crosses: the leadership not only of the United States but of the whole civilized world in the global struggle against jihad terrorism, which threatens not just America but peaceful people of all faiths and nationalities. That is why we who live in the Serbian province of Kosovo and Metohija find it difficult to understand why so many voices of influence in Washington, including some in your own Administration, support a course of action that would hand to the terrorists a significant victory in Europe.

As you know, this month talks are set to begin that will determine the future status of Kosovo, which since 1999 has been administered by the United Nations under NATO military control. While your Administration has taken no formal position on the outcome of the talks, many in the U.S. Congress, in the Executive Branch departments and agencies, and among NGOs believe that independence is the “democratic” outcome for Kosovo in accordance with the demands of Kosovo’s Muslim Albanians, who greatly outnumber the province's Orthodox Christian Serbs. During the years of international control, the violence directed against us had been decreased only by the reduction of the possible targets – fewer Christian Serbs to be attacked or kidnapped, fewer remaining churches and monasteries to be demolished by perpetrators who are never apprehended. As the archpastor of Kosovo’s Orthodox Serbs, I came to America once again, as on several previous occasions, to bear witness to the agony that has befallen the Christian people of Kosovo and to warn against the path that lies before us. Detaching Kosovo from democratic Serbia would mean a virtual sentence of extinction for my people in the province – the larger part of my diocese – who continue to face unremitting violence from jihad terrorist and criminal elements that dominate the Albanian Muslim leadership. Even today, while the international community maintains formal control, Kosovo has become a black hole of corruption and organized crime, including trafficking in drugs, weapons, and slaves. All too often these things happen under the noses of NATO soldiers, who fear to confront these criminals directly. (The details are catalogued on the website .)

Indeed, the sporadic outbreaks of violence are themselves cited as justification for independence, as if appeasing Muslim “frustration” in the form of an ongoing intifada will bring peace anywhere. In the midst of the war on terrorism, it is unbelievable, but true, that official Washington regards as legitimate interlocutors – and in the case of independence, the future de jure rulers of Kosovo – Albanian Muslim “leaders” whose crimes and terrorist ties are beyond doubt. Indeed, two of them, Hashim Thaci and Ramush Haradinaj, are known to have met with Osama bin Laden in Tirana in 1995 to plan the terrorist campaign that has brought us to this moment. Nothing I say is to suggest that prior to 1999 all was well in Kosovo, before the initiation of international administration. But now, to empower men of violence with state authority is no solution to problems that go back many years. Forcibly detaching Kosovo from democratic Serbia, contrary to all accepted legal principles, cannot resolve the absence of the rule of law and of elementary standards of human rights. A workable solution for Kosovo must address first of all the fact that Kosovo is part of sovereign Serbia, and that a solution must be found that provides for the human dignity and respect for all people, whether Albanian or Serb or Roma or Turk, whether Muslim or Christian. Viable and balanced plans have been put forward, that can ensure safety for all citizens with a fullest degree of self-rule, in accordance with all accepted standards. The question of Kosovo’s status is one of legality and not of politics.

Kosovo Albanians, on the other side, have engaged all available resources to convince the world, one way or another, through peace or violence, that the independence of Kosovo is a panacea that will solve all of Kosovo's problems and automatically improve all basic standards, and bring peace and stability to the region. I think many Americans would be shocked to learn that key sectors in their government - heeding the pressure of a noisy and well-funded lobby – is pushing for Kosovo independence, which would consign the remaining Christians of Kosovo to the mercies of a violent Islamic jihad movement. At a time when money and radical propaganda pour into Kosovo from around the Islamic world, I ask: does it make sense for America to hand them a great and unnecessary victory? Even aside from what may happen to my people – which is my first responsibility – what can be gained from such an outcome in terms of peace in the Balkans, or in Europe? What can America gain?

I emphasize that the push for independence for Kosovo is neither inevitable nor desirable. Indeed, absent Washington’s support for the perceived imperative of Kosovo independence, – a misguided policy of your predecessor’s Administration, which inexplicably has not been abandoned – this agenda would not be moving forward at all. At this time, I ask with all urgency that this policy at long last be reevaluated and preferable alternatives given serious consideration.

I know that people in enlightened countries, in democratic countries, do not like to think in terms of winners and losers when it comes to matters of religion and ethnicity. What I have proposed as a preferable solution tries to address everyone’s needs and fears within a democratic European country, Serbia. But let me assure you, that is not how the radicals on the Muslim Albanian side and their jihadist supporters around the world see it. The victory of jihad in Kosovo would be a local triumph pointing the way to further victories to come, eventually to a worldwide victory. They would point and say: “Where is their God?”

As Christians, our hope of victory is not an earthly one. “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.” With all respect, I remind you that in our part of the world, we suffered centuries under shari’a rule, and no man knows the numbers or names of all the martyrs from those times. We do not prefer to repeat that nightmare, but we are prepared for it if it comes. But my plea to you, as the leader of the United States and the Free World, is that the American government would not help hasten that day for the Christian Orthodox people of Kosovo. I thank you for your attention and pray that my words appear to you in the spirit in which they were written.

However, I can’t believe that Bush supported the Muslims over Christians unless he was being fed bad information.

Pragmatism won in this case.

The very moment the bombed stopped dropping on Serbia in 1999, NATO started building Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo -- the largest permanent military base built since Vietnam. By the time Bush took office, Bondsteel was complete. Bush inherited a NATO Base on Serbian soil in Kosovo that never had Serbia's permission to be built.

Add to that, some very real atrocities against Serbs in Kosovo had taken place in Kosovo since NATO arrived -- over 150 ancient churches destroyed or desecrated by Albanians, several hundred thousand Serbs ethnically cleansed, even Serb Christians murdered by Muslim Albanians for their vital organs which were then trafficked and sold on the black market for organ transplants -- all of this happened on NATO and KFOR's watch.

Granting Kosovo independence from Serbia was the most expedient -- if immoral -- answer that Bush had available to make it though his eight years as president.

But this kind of injustice and evil doesn't stay buried forever. It poisons everyone and everything it touches. Justice may not come today, but it ultimately will come someday-- in this life or the next -- and it's not going to be pretty.

Thank you for posting this.

You're welcome. Sadly some people think that political parties and their leaders are doing the work of God when it is really people like the good Bishop who are the true followers of Christ
