    And though he now stands accused of murdering Serb civilians nine years ago, as prime minister he aided U.N. efforts to protect the remaining Serbian minority in Kosovo. In a 37-count indictment, Haradinaj and his Kosovo Liberation Army unit are accused of a "widespread and systematic" campaign to intimidate, abduct, rape and murder Serb civilians and Albanians who refused to cooperate. His "Black Eagles" killed at least 40 people between March and September 1998 and expelled thousands more, the indictment says. One of Haradinaj's lieutenants and co-defendants, Idriz Balaj, is accused of some of the more grisly deeds, including slicing...

    The May 7 arrests of six Islamic radicals, four of them ethnic Albanians originally from Macedonia and Kosovo, led American intelligence officials to issue a direct order to their Macedonian colleagues, urging them to redouble efforts against known and unknown Islamic radical elements in the country, Balkanalysis.com can now report. The alleged aspiring terrorists have been held without bail since their arrest and were indicted on June 5. While the majority of news reports on the subject have remained preoccupied with details such as the ‘true’ nationality of the men arrested or their prior experience as refugees, or the larger...
  • Serbs 'disgusted' by Bush Kosovo pledge – premier

    BELGRADE – Serbs will never forgive the United States if it helps ensure Kosovo's Albanians win independence for the Serbian province, Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica said on Monday. In a bitter response to President George W. Bush's promise to Albanians that Kosovo would soon be independent, Kostunica said Serbia was 'justifiably disgusted' by U.S. policy, the official Serbian news agency Tanjug reported. The row over Kosovo's future deepened as the province marked the eve of the 8th anniversary of the June 12 deployment of 60,000 NATO troops who entered the territory from Macedonia as Serb forces withdrew to the north....

The three-meter (10-foot) tall monument is still under construction in a studio in Podujevo north of Pristina. "He is our savior. He saved us from extermination," sculptor Izeir Mustafa told Reuters. "I was thrilled by the work because I know what he did for us." Kosovo has been under U.N. administration since 1999 after 78 days of NATO bombing ousted Serb troops who had killed some 10,000 ethnic Albanians in...

    Monday night the FBI arrested six Muslims who were planning a commando-style attack on Fort Dix in New Jersey, to “kill as many soldiers as possible,” authorities said. Four of the six men are Albanians, a fact that Fox News — which apparently thinks that “Yugoslavia” and “Albanians” are the same, and isn’t sure what those two things might have to do with “the Balkans” — reported thus: The Associated Press reported that those captured were nationals of the former Yugoslavia, but the law enforcement source told FOX News that not all of them are of Albanian ethnicity. Federal sources...

    Belgrade, 9 May (AKI) - The arrest of four ethnic Albanians, a Jordanian and a Turk in the United States on Tuesday on suspicion of planning a terrorist attack on the United States army base in Fort Dix, New Jersey, confirms the existence of a "white Al-Qaeda", Balkan terrorism expert Darko Trifunovic told Adnkronos International (AKI) on Wednesday. Trifunovic said the arrests showed "white Al-Qaeda at work." He compared the Fort Dix plot to a February attack in Salt Lake City when a Bosnian Muslim youth, Sulejman Talovic went on a shopping mall shooting rampage. Six people including Talovic were...

    Well, here is the thanks we get. Eight years ago, America opened its arms to tens of thousands of ethnic Albanian refugees from Kosovo. The first planeload landed at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Military leaders worked day and night to turn the base into a child-friendly village. They coordinated medical and security checkups, mental health and trauma counseling and ethnic food preparations. Soldiers from Fort Bragg traveled up from North Carolina to assist in refugee operations at Fort Dix. Then-U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Mitchell M. Zais also assembled a team of about 80 soldiers from the U.S. Army Reserve Command...

    NEW YORK -- Six men from New Jersey have been arrested in an alleged terror plot against soldiers at Fort Dix, according investigators. Investigators said the men planned to use automatic rifles to enter Fort Dix and kill as many soldiers as they could at the N.J. base. Fort Dix was just one of several military and security locations allegedly scouted by this group, authorities said. Investigators told Newschannel 4's Jonathan Dienst that these arrests are the result of a tip to the FBI and use of an informant to track the suspects. Authorities were alerted in January 2006 after...
  • Wahhabi Rules: Islamic Extremism Comes to Bosnia

    It was a strange scene. Over 3000 followers of the radical Wahhabi current of Islam had come to the northeast Bosnian town of Tuzla to bury their leader Jusuf Barcic, who had recently died in a traffic accident. The coffin in front of the mosque was draped in a green cloth. Men with long beards chanted "Allahu Akbar": "God is great." As press photographers tried to photograph the scene, they were first cursed and then beaten. The police did nothing. "We did not expect there to be so many people," an officer told the newspaper Oslobodjenje. Religious fundamentalism is on...
  • U.S. On The Wrong Side In Kosovo

    The Wall Street Journal reported on April 25 that "Russia gave its strongest hint yet that it will veto a U.N. plan for eventual Kosovo independence (currently a province of Serbia and administered by the U.N., JP) stirring outrage in Pristina (Kosovo's capital, JP) and U.S. concern." For once, the Russians seem to be on the right side of an issue. Moreover, the Russian policy on Kosovo, unlike that of the U.S. has been consistent, coherent, and credible. Should the U.S. go along with the Europeans in advancing an Albanian-Muslim led Kosovo to independence from Serbia, it will reveal a...

  • Serbia says independence is unacceptable

    Serbian President Boris Tadic said Serbia strongly disagreed with the State Department’s decision to back Ahtisaari’s Kosovo plan. “Any form of independence for Kosovo-Metohija is unacceptable for Serbia, and we will strive to express the need to reach a compromise solution through continued negotiations in our contacts with the UN Security Council member states,” Tadic told U.S. Under secretary of State for Political Affairs Nicholas Burns in a telephone conversation. Tadic said he saw “room for further dialogue”, as well as that the UN special Kosovo envoy Martti Ahtisaari had “not yet exhausted all potential for negotiations”, the president’s press...

    Last week, the Salt Lake Tribune reported that the day before 18 year-old Sulejman Talovic killed Mormons in Utah, he told his girlfriend that “something is going to happen tomorrow that you’ll never be able to forgive me about,'’ the 17-year-old remembers Talovic saying. “He said it was supposed to be the happiest day of his life and that it could only happen once in a lifetime.” In case that doesn’t sound convincingly Islamic enough, consider that Sulejman’s favorite movie was “Malcolm X”. Or consider the lie he told his girlfriend: Monika said Talovic described hiding in the woods over...
  • Bosnian Serbs Refuse To Accept Collective Responsibility

    Bosnian Serbs would not accept collective responsibility for genocide committed during the war in Bosnia, nor should the Bosnian Serb entity be abolished, top Bosnian Serb officials said in a declaration Wednesday. The highest-ranking Bosnian Serb officials in central Bosnia- Herzegovina's institutions and the Srpska Republic signed the document in Banja Luka. The document is an attempt to defuse political tensions in the country caused by the ruling of the International Court of Justice in The Hague, which last month cleared Serbia of genocide, but placed the responsibility with Bosnian Serbs' wartime officials. "We are seriously worried because of radicalization...

    CERSKA, Bosnia (Reuters) -- The 18-year-old gunman who shot five people to death in a Salt Lake City, Utah, shopping mall was a survivor of the siege that ended in the Srebrenica massacre of 8,000 Muslims in Bosnia's 1992-95 war, a cousin said on Wednesday. Sulejman Talovic, who was killed by police after Monday's shooting spree in which he also wounded four people, fled his village with his family during the Bosnia war to Srebrenica, a U.N.-protected enclave, Redzo Talovic said. They spent two years in the town, during which Bosnian Serb forces besieged the enclave and Talovic's grandfather was...

    BELGRADE: Kosovo Serbs and the influential Serbian Orthodox Church on Tuesday urged the government in Belgrade to reject a UN plan for Kosovo, saying it opens the way for secession of the southern province. The government of Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica immediately convened to adopt a “resolution” that would serve as Serbia’s official response to the recently presented UN plan on Kosovo’s future. The plan by UN envoy Martti Ahtisaari envisages internationally supervised statehood for the disputed territory. The Serbian National Council, which represents some 100,000 Serbs still living in the province amid an overwhelming majority of independence-seeking ethnic Albanians,...

Several thousand Kosovo Albanian members of the Self-Determination movement and supporters of the so-called Kosovo liberation army protested against UN special envoy Martti Ahtisaari's plan for the status of Kosovo in Pristina on Saturday.
