Pristina. Hundreds of Kosovo Albanians attended a folk concert to celebrate the 61th birthday of former US president Bill Clinton on Sunday, remembering his support for their separatist struggle.
Dancing to Albanian folk music before a huge birthday cake outside the national theatre, they expressed gratitude for Clinton's approval of a NATO bombing campaign to end a Serbian crackdown during the 1998-99 Kosovo conflict.
"I hope president Clinton lives to be 101. I hope his wife Hillary is elected president and rules America as her husband did," said Lutfi Salihu, a 66-year-old pensioner who attended the concert.
"If it wasn't for him you wouldn't have one single Albanian in Kosovo nowadays."
It was the fourth time Kosovo Albanians have publicly celebrated Clinton's birthday and follows the raptuous welcome for US President George W. Bush in Albania earlier this year.
"We confirmed the love that we Albanians feel towards president Clinton and America as well as the American people," Bekim Rexhepi, the head of the Association of Friends of America, told the crowd.
“I hope his wife Hillary is elected president and rules America as her husband did,”
There’s a handy definition of the term “Nightmare.”
Pardon me while I swallow my vomit.
What did they do? Molest a pig behind the curtains?
Fred Thompson’s birthday was yesterday.
He bombed the enemies of the Muslims.
For thanks, they gave us 9/11...
AFTER Slick Willie left office.
seen, now that is what i dont get, why are they always referred to as albanians, when they are nothing but muslim trouble makers????
They are a mixture of Albanianism and mostly Muslim - (there are a small percentage of Christians in Albania and Macedonia)- with some clannish blood feud (Code of Lek) thrown in.
You are absolutely correct. I kept reading the article, waiting for the mention of the word. It was glaringly absent from this paean.
(slobo was framed)
they are still predominantly muslim and therefore are not to be trusted....
I’m sure that was a rhetorical question.
We both know it’s PC handling so we don’t enrage the Arab street and other Muslims. But that is exactly what it is. If the news called out the religion of every crime and act of aggression, the world would ban together to fight this enemy of all non-Muslims that is militant Islam.

ME; exactly...and frankly, im sick of it....milosevic may not have been up for many mr. congeniality awards, but damn if he wasnt protecting his country from the raghead dirtbags......albainian my azzz.......
I seem to recall an outpouring of thanks (to President Bush and America) from the Kurdish peoples in Northern Iraq. Of course, we will se very little of that in print or on TV.
I hope his wife Hillary is elected president and rules America as her husband did,
RULES being the keyword!!!!
Guess Hillery will have to find a male Monica.....But then again maybe Female
Today is birthday of late Slobodan Milosevic also...
They’re mostly Muslim...I’m sure it was a sheep or a goat instead;-)
The guy who sold out the Serbs and pretended to be a Serb nationalist?
Believe me...Osama Bin Laden is celebrating his birthday as well.
This needs to be shouted from the housetops!
Who was that guy that sold out the Bosnian Croats? Seems like his name was something like Tudj... Tudjman?
What did he do about Vitez, Miletici, Majine, Krizanicevo Selo and Buhina Kuca?
How about the “camp” at Bugojno? Survivor’s of Bugojno said that Manjaca was a “hotel” compared to Bugojno!
if you go to those places, you’ll find that the Croatians there overwhelmingly favour Tudjman. You can’t win all the battles...but we won the important ones :)
