KUHNER: Radical Islam in the heart of Europe
Washington Times ^ | 11/10/11 | Jeffrey T. Kuhner

Is Bosnia-Herzegovina doomed? The small Balkan nation is being subverted by powerful internal forces that threaten its existence. The West must wake up before the former Yugoslav republic descends once again into sectarian bloodshed.

Last month, an Islamic terrorist from neighboring Serbia, Mevlid Jasarevic, opened fire on the U.S. embassy in Bosnia’s capital, Sarajevo. The 23-year-old jihadist was armed with hand grenades and an automatic weapon. Fortunately, no one was killed. Mr. Jasarevic was protesting American policy toward the Muslim world. He was arrested and is awaiting trial.

Police also raided a northern Bosnian village, Gornja Maoca, which is a hotbed of Wahhabist activity and a place Mr. Jasarevic often visited. The terrorist attack shocked both Sarajevo’s political establishment and the U.S. State Department. It shouldn’t have. In Bosnia, radical Islam has been growing for years. In fact, America and the West have deliberately turned a blind eye to its dangerous rise.

From 1992 to 1995, Bosnia was ravaged by a war pitting Muslims (known as Bosniaks), Serbs and Croats against each other. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the conflict was not - and never was - a civil war driven by “ancient ethnic hatreds.” Instead, the country was a victim of outside aggression. Serbia’s late strongman, Slobodan Milosevic, waged a genocidal campaign to annex large chunks of Croatia first and then Bosnia in order to erect a Greater Serbian Empire. More than 200,000 were murdered and nearly 2 million ethnically cleansed. To counter Serbia’s expansionist ambitions, Islamic countries sought to help the besieged Bosniaks. In particular, Saudi Arabia and Iran offered extensive financial and military assistance. Thousands of foreign Mujahedeen guerrillas entered the country to battle rampaging Serb forces. The 1995 Dayton Peace Agreement ended the fighting.

>Is Bosnia-Herzegovina doomed?<

About as much doomed as the rest of the West if it continues on the path it has chosen to tread so far.

The Serbs won’t let it happen without a fight...but of course, we’ll support the Islamo-Fascists.

Do you also question why the muslim problem has not been discussed at any of the debates?

Whether it’s going to be 9-9-9 (I’ll shoot my TV if I ever hear it again) or 90-90-90, it is all irrelevant when sharia law is established in the country.

Those republican presidential candidates make me spitting mad when I see them talk about everything else but the lurking danger of Islam.

Thank you for the article, very educational.
That filled in a few gaps with an important history lesson.
Perhaps it should be more widely read.
