A UN official has urged Albania to stop hampering efforts to investigate claims that hundreds of Serbs were tortured and murdered for their organs in the country during the Kosovo war.
Belgrade says the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) abducted up to 500 Serb civilians and took them to neighbouring Albania for organ removal during the 1998-9 conflict with Slobodan Milosevics forces.
The allegations were first made public in a memoir by Carla Del Ponte, the former chief UN war crimes prosecutor, who said her office had received information about a possible Albanian trafficking network selling human organs abroad for transplanting.
She wrote that her colleagues did not find enough evidence to proceed with the case, but Serbia has demanded an inquiry, and advocacy group Human Rights Watch has reviewed the information referred to by Ms Del Ponte and said it merits investigation.
The bottom line appears to be that the issue is definitively stalled, said UN special rapporteur Philip Alston at the end of a week-long visit to Albania.
None of the efforts to investigate have received meaningful co-operation on the side of the government of Albania.
While various explanations were offered to me, they amounted in practice to a game of bureaucratic and diplomatic ping-pong . . . , he said.
Mr Alston said it would be in Albanias interest to have the claims investigated. Given the strength of the belief . . . that allegations of hundreds of people killed in Albania after June 1999 are unfounded, it would be in the governments best interest to facilitate an independent and objective investigation by one or other of the international entities currently focused on the issue, he said.
Ms del Ponte wrote that UN investigators found medical equipment and evidence of extensive bloodstains at a house in Albania where witnesses said the organ removals took place.
Human Rights Watch says it has seen an official UN report that largely corroborates those claims.
Officials in Kosovo insist the allegations are part of Serb efforts to discredit their new state.
As time progresses, the similarities between Islam and Nazism become more and more obvious.
I’m sure Thaci is securing his testicles right now because that’s the next organ that will be harvested.
Hitler had a fascination with Islam.
Anybody right of center here in the states still think there was some reason for us to have wanted to simply hand the ancient heartland of Serbia over to these people??
Barbarians are savages supported by the State Department.
The connection shows.
The food fairy grants me three wishes... I’d like to see the Christian majority in America pull ALL of their children out of the govt. schools in one day; Serbian and/or Russian tanks roll into Kosovo and presumably round up all the AKs and heave em over the border into Albania; and space aliens or some such abduct Foggy Bottom and everybody in it.
Hitler had a fascination with Islam.
That is not surprising. Evil genius admiring the worship of evil.
Not holding my breath until the American media reports this.
Albanian Muslims were perpetrating genocide and worse on Serbs for decades.
BJ Clinton backed the wrong side.
The purge was long and continuous, even the NYT was reporting about the ethnic cleansing of Serbs out of Kosovo back during the 80’s.
You mean like this?
WWII Bosnian Muslim flag.
Just posted this on another thread:
This website http://www.tellthechildrenthetruth.com/ makes an interesting historical connection between the defeat WWII Nazism and today’s rising Islamofascism.
The website has a list of high ranking German Nazis who escaped to the ME post-war, translated Mein Kampf into Arabic and became high-level advisers to ME governments. These old Nazis infected the Middle East with hatred of Jews and the plans for destroying them.
The second part of that old Nazi network was in the former Yugoslavia — Bosnian and Albanian Muslims and the Croatian Ustashi — precisely the same groups we wound up championing in the 1990s. Now, because they have their own countries, they have a perfect entrance into the rest of Europe.
It’s as though we are in the middle of WWII all over again, but the fascists now have millions of Muslims behind them and the US & Britain have switched sides. Welcome to the New World Order.
THAT says it all.
First time I saw that flag, it gave me the chills.
I love the way you think!
Think about this.
In the long history of the world, many tyrants have come and gone and many tyrannies have risen.
BUT NOT ONE THEM who persecuted the People of Yahweh ever lasted very long.
The string of time is running out for IslamoNazis.
True, Zulu, but they killed millions of people before we got rid of them, including millions of Jews.
Hang on because it's gonna be a bumpy ride until this lunacy is over.
