Pristina, 21 Nov. (AKI) - An explosive device went off early on Tuesday morning in a Serbian elementary school in the central Kosovo village of Ropotovo, but there were no casualties, police said. Kosovo police spokesman Veton Elsani said the device was placed in a storage cupboard. Fortunately, the classroom, which can hold up to 200 pupils, was empty, because the teacher didnt show up for the classes and, apart from material damage, there were no injuries, he said.
By chance, due to the teachers absence, the fifth grade classroom in which the explosion took place was empty and the tragedy was avoided, said a school official Zivorad Tomic. He said the school is usually attended by 450 ethnic Serb pupils, but all classes were later cancelled.
Violent incidents have lately increased in the breakaway Kosovo province, where majority ethnic Albanians demand independence, as the international community nears a decision on the final status of Kosovo. The province, in which ethnic Albanians outnumber the remaining Serbs by 17 to one, has been under United Nations control since 1999, but Belgrade opposes independence and reaffirmed Serbia's sovreignty over the area in its new constitution, approved recently.
Violence flared in the province when the Kosovo Liberation Army, supported by ethnic Albanians, came out in open rebellion against Serbian rule in the mid-1990s, sparking a brutal Yugoslav military crackdown.
Serbian forces began an 'ethnic cleansing' campaign against up to half of Kosovo's ethnic Albanians in 1999 triggering a NATO bombing campaign that drove Serb forces from the province. Some 800,000 people fled to Albania, Macedonia and Montenegro and approximately 10,000 died in the conflict.
Over 200,000 Serbs have fled Kosovo since it was put under UN control and some 3,000 have been killed or listed as missing, according to the International Red Cross. It believes about 1,500 have been murdered.
I CALL A CRUSADE TO SAVE THE SERBS!!!!!!
This is what I fear here...
How do you say "quagmire!" in French, German, Russian, Chinese, Swedish, Yorbu, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Japanese, Greek, Latvian, and Vietnamese?
We should save Serbs
I can't believe they wrote the truth?
I can't believe they wrote the truth?
S.O.S.="Save Our Serbs"
I belive we must take up the Cross and save them from this death cult who is out to wipe there way of life out.
If I knew how to Freep the US State Department, I would, but I haven't the vaguest idea how to organize one!
Yes, but how?
As near as I can figure, we have between now and January 21st to do something significant, otherwise it is over for these Christians.
One thing we can do is write to President Bush and let him know how we feel. http://www.savekosovo.org has a good site for this and that's a start.
But we need something dramatic, like a protest that gets some news coverage.
No. Not independence, but conquest. The Albanians demand conquest--conquest by immigration, high birth rate, and terror.
The article reveals its bias. Words have meaning.
How come the Serbs no longer fight back?
It is a lie! Albanians fled AFTER the NATO bombing started. And this "approximately 10,000" who "died in the conflict" included thousands of Serbs killed by NATO bombs.
How can the Serbs fight back? The UN demanded that all Serb soldiers leave Kosovo as part of UN Resolution 1244, and security was taken over by NATO and the UN. Virtually all the fighting-age Serb men who stayed were either kidnapped or killed. That left unarmed women, children and old people to defend themselves, and how can they do that against UN soldiers AND the Albanian mafia.
The fact is that the internationals want the remaining Serbs to leave Kosovo because it makes it easier to give in to the Albanian demands for independence.
With good reason.
Chase ends in deadly rollover [Albanian illegals in South Texas]
Because they've been ethnically cleansed by mass illegal immigration of muslim Albanians, with the help of the Clinton and Bush State Depts.
"in which ethnic Albanians outnumber the remaining Serbs by 17 to one,"
Man I vote for guerilla warfare in defence of Serbs.
If no on ewill help, Serbs must organise themselves and start guerilla war. UN are just muslim scumbags and NATO wont protect Serbs.
I dent belive in peacefull resolution.
I CALL A CRUSADE TO SAVE THE SERBS!!!!!!
Serbs are ghettoised like Jews in Warsaw ghetto. Sorrunded by SS (muslims in this case).
UN, EU and USA are treathening Serbia not to intervene, Albanians were awarded my "protection corp." troops of mujahedeens and KLA murderers formed into oficial UN organised troops.
Serbs have nothing.
I suppose the Serbs understand by now that to fight would be to be completely destroyed by Nato/UN/etc. They stand alone, which really stinks.
If Bill Clinton was a Republican, you would've heard the MSM/actorvists continually talk about he "rushed" us into the war over "lies" just to cover up his own corruption. And that there were 200,000 dead plus or minus 100,000.
I will prey for them
Or rather "200,000 dead plus or minus 199,000".
Whatever the truth, it is telling that while there are mass graves everywhere to be found in Iraq, and the media have no interest in them, they have yet to find Clinton's mass graves in Kosovo.
A recent case has a Serb officer being tried for the death of 14 kosovars, which is tragic if they were innocents, but its a far cry from Clinton's supposed 100,000 victims of genocide.
Because NATO gave the Muslims an airforce, then put troops in on the ground to 'protect' them from a non-existent 'genocide'.
The sense of being stabbed in the back is probably enervating even to the spiritual heirs of St. Lazar, who might otherwise fight in a hopeless cause.
It is important to put the numbers in perspective. During 1998-March 1999 counterterrorist activities a total of 3000 people died, approximatelly 1500 Albanians and 1500 Serbs- The casualties are documented and breakdown exists for Albanian civilians, Albanian terrorists, Serb civilians, Serb police and Army. The signifficant number of Albanian civilians was murdered by Albanian terrorists.
After the war, additional 1000 Albanian civilians were murdered by KLA with NATO looking the other way.
That means that NATO-sponsored KLA murdered over 2000 people before the war and at least 2500 people after the war.
This explains the lie of 10,000 people killed during the war. It is book cooking, NATO-style.
The only crime commited in Kosovo is the crime against peace commited by joint criminal enterprise of NATO and KLA.
Thank you for information.
Show and Tell gone bad? Or maybe one of those Amish...

"They tried to pull another Chechnya on innocent pupils. This is war and reporters idiotic political agenda of brain washing and distorting truth; can not see it. I am getting aggravated with constant lies; these people who put innocent people lives at risk will face judgment."
They keep saying "ethnic Albanians" to describe those who are Muslims who invaded Serbian areas, then outbred the Serbs, took over and used force and allies to ethnically cleanse their conquered territory of the remaining Serbs.
The teacher didn't show up for class?? What is that about? Quite a coincidence.
Every Albanian Muslim belongs in Albania. They do not belong in Kosovo.
Islam is a cult of death and murder -- you hear that Pres. Bush?!
Very sad bump to the top. May God watch over our people.
Praying with you, sweet anonymoussierra. Be safe, dear friend.
REUTERS reports that hand granade was placed into stove:
"A Kosovo police spokesman said the grenade exploded in a stove used to heat the classroom shortly after lessons began at around 7.50 a.m. (0650 GMT) at the Trajko Peric school in the village of Veliko Ropotovo near the eastern town of Kamenica.
"The stove was completely destroyed and some parts of the classroom as well," said spokesman Veton Elshani."
What a viscious plan. Stoves in Serb enclaves are using coal for fuel. it is so easy to put hand granade under the coal allready put into stove, and just wait for teacher or janitor to set fire in stove. And while children are gathering arround stove to get warm. BOOOM! Instant Independant Kosovo! Free of Christians!
Or the Hand of God protecting his little ones!
May the Lord Jesus Christ be with your Spirit. (2Tim.4:22)
But... but... Islam is the religion of peace....
Or of "piece" -- as in cut non-Muslims into "pieces"!
To me, the only thing stupider than a non-Muslim saying that "Islam means peace" -- is when a non-Muslim tells an Islamist, "You are corrupting your religion"! That one is just priceless!
