Skip to comments.How Kosovo Was Turned Into Fertile Ground for ISIS
Posted on 05/22/2016 2:58:28 AM PDT by Cronos
Every Friday, just yards from a statue of Bill Clinton with arm aloft in a cheery wave, hundreds of young bearded men make a show of kneeling to pray on the sidewalk outside an improvised mosque in a former furniture store.
The mosque is one of scores built here with Saudi government money and blamed for spreading Wahhabism the conservative ideology dominant in Saudi Arabia in the 17 years since an American-led intervention wrested tiny Kosovo from Serbian oppression.
Since then much of that time under the watch of American officials Saudi money and influence have transformed this once-tolerant Muslim society at the hem of Europe into a font of Islamic extremism and a pipeline for jihadists.
Kosovo now finds itself, like the rest of Europe, fending off the threat of radical Islam. Over the last two years, the police have identified 314 Kosovars including two suicide bombers, 44 women and 28 children who have gone abroad to join the Islamic State, the highest number per capita in Europe.
...It is a stunning turnabout for a land of 1.8 million people that not long ago was among the most pro-American Muslim societies in the world. Americans were welcomed as liberators after leading months of NATO bombing in 1999 that spawned an independent Kosovo.
After the war, United Nations officials administered the territory and American forces helped keep the peace. The Saudis arrived, too, bringing millions of euros in aid to a poor and war-ravaged land.
But where the Americans saw a chance to create a new democracy, the Saudis saw a new land to spread Wahhabism.

In some cases, centuries-old buildings were bulldozed, including a historic library in Gjakova and several 400-year-old mosques, as well as shrines, graveyards and Dervish monasteries, all considered idolatrous in Wahhabi teaching.
From their bases, the Saudi-trained imams propagated Wahhabisms tenets: the supremacy of Sharia law as well as ideas of violent jihad and takfirism, which authorizes the killing of Muslims considered heretics for not following its interpretation of Islam.
Everything believable which I’ve ever been able to come up with indicates that our entire involvement in the Balkans was grossly ill conceived and that we fought on the wrong side. Albanian “kosovars” in particular are a bunch of savages.
Saudi Arabia is well past its sell-by date.
iirc, it was Hillary who made Clinton BOMBS fall relentlessly. She gave ORDERS to Bomb! Everything the Clintons touch turn to CRAP.

I didn’t read past: Wahhabism the conservative ideology dominant in Saudi Arabia
You think we fought on the wrong side? Yeah, we slaughtered the Christian Serbs to save the Muslims and they thanked us by murdering 2800 innocent Americans on 911.
“But where the Americans saw a chance to create a new democracy ...”
Under Bill Clinton the US destroyed and killed Christian Serbs to achieve another Islamic State.
The Albanian muslim SS Nazi army destroyed centuries old Christian churches and burned priceless illustrated Bibles and other works from the Middle ages and prior. While the US media salivated at the very thought of evil Christians being brought to justice for the crime of defending their country. We bombed innocent civilians as long as they were Christians, destroyed historic bridges and the electrical grid. The Media cheered as the Butcher of Belgrade (Gen. Weaselly Clark) killed more and more Christian Serbs - using staged events to make it look as if the Serbs were even more evil and deserved what they got for not allowing the Albanian SS to take over Kosovo.
This article doesn’t even mention the WAR CRIMES committed by NATO, i.e., Clinton, which include the deliberate bombing of non-military targets, including every bridge in Belgrade.
You see, Clinton had a problem trying to conduct his little war at 30,000 feet - it’s hard to identify real targets - so it was either ground troops or bombing Belgrade to bits - he chose the latter option.
It would sure be nice if Trump could open up some type of investigation.
in the 17 years since an American-led intervention wrested tiny Kosovo from Serbian oppression
Kosovo had always been Serbian.
Illegal immigration from Albania is what turned it muslim, until we helped the muslims take over completely.
Our foreign policy has been dictated by the Saudi’s for far too long.
From the article:
BILGE from the NY TIMES.
Kosovo is part of Serbia.
Always has been.
Muslim Albanians flooded into it just like the US is being flooded with illegal aliens.
When the Serbs tried to stop being overrun, Soros falsely accused them of ‘genocide’—got his “news” media to hammer away at that—and had his stooge Bill Clinton along with NATO bomb the hell out of the Serbs and take Kosovo away from the Serbs.
This NY TIMES propaganda article doesn’t mention a word of that.
Soros’ false claims of ‘genocide’ were proven false by British forensic teams.
But Soros got what he wanted: The Trepca mining complex in Kosovo—the third largest mining complex in the world, consisting of more than 100 mines, known for its “perfect 99’s”—99 percent pure lead and zinc.
The NY TIMES at that time was the mouthpiece for the Soros operation to hand Serbia’s Kosovo over to the Albanian muslims while Soros rifled Kosovo’s assets.
Yeah, I see what they did there.
Thank you for painting the correct picture.
Thank you for that information.

NATO’s War on Serbia
It was pure evil. The Serbs were solid hard Orthodox Christians.
I get your point, but their point is spin.
Kosovo is Serbia!!!!
Once the “moderate” (but primitive and tribal) Shiptar muslims took over Kosovo, it was INEVITABLE that they would turn toward Wahhabism, Al Qaeda, and ISIS!!!!
There are also Kosovo Albanians fighting with the UkroNazis in Ukraine, as well as Bosnian muslims and Croatian Nazis!!!!
The clintons and their Bankster allies are behind much of the murder and mayhem in the Serbian homeland, Ukraine, and the Middle East.
Except for wanting to take out ISIS (good!), Trump is a peace candidate!!!! He wants good relations with the Orthodox Christian world, including Serbia. Vote Trump!!!!
As for the New York Times—and the Boston Globe, the Washington Post, and LA Times—they are WORTHLESS!!!!
