War President of Bosnia-Herzegovina Alija Izetbegovic – author of jihadist “Islamic Declaration” in 1970
One of the most outrageous and heinous hoaxes and Hitlerian Big Lies perpetrated by the US and Western media during the Bosnian civil war of 1992-1995 was that Bosnian Serbs had used rape as an “instrument of war”. In order to discredit the Bosnian Serbs, they were accused of committing mass rapes against Bosnian Muslim women, in “rape camps” and “rape motels”. Even the United Nations commander in Bosnia, Canadian Major-General Lewis MacKenzie, a veteran of eight UN peacekeeping missions, was accused of committing rapes against Bosnian Muslim women, four Bosnian Muslim teenage girls. The rape hoax or rape “big lie” was manufactured to undermine the Serbian side in the Bosnian civil war, a three-way civil war between Orthodox Bosnian Serbs, Roman Catholic Bosnian Croats, andÂ Bosnian Sunni Muslims,Â and to enflame emotions against Serbian Christians in the Muslim countries. It was morally disgusting and reprehensible. It demonstrated the real moral character of the New World Order. It was a Big Lie. But as Adolf Hitler correctly noted in Mein Kampf (1925), the Big Lie works regardless of whether it is true or not. In short, the Big Lie works. It is effective. People still believe there is a worldwide Jewish or Zionist conspiracy even though The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion was shown to be a hoax. People still believe in “Hun atrocities” and the “rape of Belgium” even though many of the accounts were fabricated by British and French propaganda. Most Americans, seven out of ten, still believe there is a link or connection between Saddam Hussein and Al-Qaeda in the 9/11 attack. No link has ever been shown. People still believe there were concentration camps in Bosnia. People still believe Serbian forces committedÂ mass rapes of Muslim women in Bosnia. The lies and deceptions endure. How does the Big Lie work? Here is how Hitler put it:
“…[I]n the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying. These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes.”
The residue of lies and deceptions remains behind. This shows the resiliency and unmistakable power of the Big Lie Technique. We all remember the lies, not the actual facts, even when they are proven to be lies, as Hitler noted:
“At first the claims of the propaganda were so impudent that people thought it insane; later, it got on people’s nerves; and in the end, it was believed.”
In order to manufacture the Serbian “mass rapes” hoax, the US and Western media had to carefully suppress and censor the evidence that Bosnian Muslim forces had committed rapes against Bosnian Serb Christian women by Bosnian Muslim forces under the direct command and control of Bosnian Muslim president Alija Izetbegovic and the Bosnian Muslim “government”. It is similar to the US censorship and suppression of mass rapes committed by US forces in Europe and Okinawa during World War II.
The US and Western media suppressed and covered-up any account of the Bosnian Muslim-run detention camp at Celebici in Bosnia-Hercegovina and suppressed and censored all accounts of the murders, tortures, and rapes committed there by Bosnian Muslim forces. Specifically, the rapes committed by Bosnian Muslim forces were suppressed and deleted in the US and Western media.
Central Bosnia in 1993: Muslim jihad fighter with a Serb head
The ICTY tried three Bosnian Muslim commanders of the Celebici camp for murder, torture, and rapes against Bosnian Serb civilians. This trial was ignored, censored, and suppressed in the US and the Western media. In counts 18 to 20 of the indictment, Bosnian Muslim camp guard Hazim Delic was accused of subjecting Bosnian Serb prisoner Grozdana Cecez to rape and torture beginning around May 27, 1992 and continuing until the beginning of August, 1992. Bosnian Muslim Hazim Delic and other Bosnian Muslim personnel of the camp subjected Grozdana Cecez to “repeated incidents of forcible sexual intercourse. On one occasion, she was raped in front of other persons, and on another occasion she was raped by three different persons in one night.” By committing these rapes, Hazim Delic was guilty of war crimes according to the ICTY prosecutors.
A second Bosnian Serb victim of rape at the Bosnian Muslim-run Celebici camp was Milojka Antic, “Witness A” in the indictment. The incidents of rape were alleged in counts 21 and 22 of the indictment. Beginning on June 15, 1992 and continuing until the beginning of August, 1992, Hazim Delic was accused of subjecting the prisoner Antic to “repeated incidents of forcible sexual intercourse, including both vaginal and anal intercourse. Hazim Delic raped her during her first interrogation and during the next six weeks she was raped every few days.”
Antic lived in Idbar near Konjic in Bosnia-Hercegovina. On May 9, 1992. Bosnian Muslim forces in camouflage uniform came to the village and took away nine Serbian men, which included Antic’s brother. All Serbian men had been rounded up and taken to and incarcerated in the Bosnian Muslim-run camp at Celebici. Bosnian Muslim military and paramilitary forces rounded up the Bosnian Serb men and imprisoned them merely because they were Serbs. Their only crime was that they were Serbian Orthodox Christians in an ethnic and religious civil war.
Milojka Antic was arrested and taken to the Celebici camp on June 15, 1992, accused of hiding a radio transmitter in her hair. Her first interrogation in the camp was conducted by HazimÂ Delic, Bosnian Croat Zdravko Mucic, and Zejnil Delalic, the senior Bosnian Muslim military commander in the Celebici sector.Â They asked her where her husband was. She replied that she was unmarried. Mucic then turned to Delic and told him: “Right type for you.”
Delic admitted he sent camp guards to bring Antic to the camp headquarters, where he ordered her to undress. Antic started to cry and pleaded with him to leave her alone. the defendant Delic then pointed a gun at her and told her he would kill her. Antic stated: “I was scared and I did what he wanted.” ICTY Prosecutor Giuliano Turone relied on the details of “penetration” and “ejaculation” to establish his case for rape.
Antic described two other rapes, in one case, Delic attempted anal penetration, but stopped when the victim began to scream and bleed. When the ICTY Prosecutor asked if Delic also undressed during the rapes, Antic answered that he only removed his belt with his handgun and grenades and lowered his pants down to his boots. Delic remained in Bosnian Muslim military uniform during the entire time of the rapes in
During the rapes, Delic cursed and made threats repeatedly. The day following the first rape, when he noticed that Antic was in tears, he said: “Why are you crying? It won’t be the last time.”
In a RFE/RL report, the rape of Antic by Bosnian Muslim camp guard Hazim Delic is described in detail:
“One rape victim, Miljoka Antic testified against Delic. She described multiple occurrences of rape and sexual assault during her imprisonment at the Celebici camp during the summer of 1992. In one account, she testified that Delic raped her at gunpoint.
Antic said: ‘He pointed the rifle at me. I got scared. I was afraid he would kill me. So I had to do what he asked from me. I had to take my clothes off as he pointed the rifle on me, on the upper part of my body. Then he threatened me. He ordered me to go into the bed and to lie down. He ordered me to take my tracksuit off. I had a jumper, which I also had to take off. Then he took his belt off. On his belt he had a pistol. So he took some of his clothes off and climbed into the bed and then he started to rape me. He cursed me and he threatened me, saying that I would be killed. After that he got off — got up and got off the bed. He put his trousers on, went out of the door and told me to get dressed. ‘”
Delic and the other Bosnian Muslim guards also used starvation against the Serbian Christian prisoners at the Celebici camp. Antic pleaded with Delic to “either to let us go, or to kill us, or to give us something to eat.”
Delic dismissed the complaints, comparing the starvation to the Islamic festival of Ramadan: “Never mind. Now you know what it is like to fast in Ramadan.”
Milojka Antic was released from the Bosnian Muslim-run Celebici camp on August 31, 1992.
Bosnian Muslim Hazim Delic, the deputy commander of the Celebici camp, was found guilty of rape and murder and given a sentence of 20 years in prison. Bosnian Muslim Esad Landzo, who had admitted some crimes, was found guilty of murder and sentenced to 15 years in prison. The senior Bosnian Muslim military commander of the Celebici area, Zejnil Dalalic, was acquitted on all charges. His conviction would implicate the Bosnian Muslim “government” and Bosnian Muslim president Alija Izetbegovic, who was known to have toured and inspected the Celebici camp.
The Celebici case was essentially ignored and suppressed in the US because it undermined the US characterization of the civil war as a Manichean conflict between “aggressors” and “war criminals” on the one hand and innocent “victims” on the other. The propaganda technique employed was Emphasis. By ignoring the Celebici case completely, the US media and government could let it die on the vine. The benefit of this approach was that it precluded any rebuttal of the case because that would only garner more attention to the case. Moreover, the charge of censorship and suppression could not be leveled at the US government and media because information on the Celebici case was readily available. The case was being ignored as if it did not exist at all. This is the subtle advantage of employing the Emphasis technique. The bottom line was that the Celebici case was ignored and the simplistic, biased, one-sided US characterization of the Bosnian civil war was allowed to stand.

The Vlachs in Greece
Many researchers and scholars judge that the largest part of the Balkan Vlachs is concentrated in Greece. The census of 1935 recorded 19,703 Vlachs in Greece, but according to the last census in Greece that allowed people to express their ethnic identity (in 1951), there were 39,855 Vlachs in this state. However, a real number of the Vlachs in Greece today is up to 120,000.
The Vlachs in a post-war Greece are not acknowledged as an ethnic or national group for the very reason that Greece from the mid-1950s does not recognize an existence of any national or ...

What you can see here, as the example: Serbian shrine Bogorodica Ljeviška (Virgin Mary of Ljevishka) is a cathedral church in the city of Prizren in the western part of Kosovo & Metohija region. The city was a capital of medieval Serbia. This church is built by Serbian king Milutin between 1307-1309. This church belongs to one of four masterpieces of Serbian sacral architecture in the Middle Ages in Kosovo & Metohija that was a central part of Serbian medieval state. The video is in the Serbian language.
Rachak Village in Kosovo 1999- Lies and the truth from Vladislav B. Sotirovic ...
A decade ago I published a book, Israel and the Clash of Civilisations, that examined Israel’s desire to Balkanize the Middle East, using methods it had refined over many decades in the occupied Palestinian territories. The goal was to unleash anarchy across much of the region, destabilising key enemy states: Iran, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.
The book further noted how Israel’s strategy had influenced the neoconservative agenda in Washington that found favour under George Bush’s administration. The neocons’ destabilisation campaign started in Iraq, with consequences that are only too apparent today.
My book was published when efforts by Israel and the neocons to move ...
This list of shrines is based on a study by Milan Ivanovic, Crkveni spomenici XIII-XX veka (Church Monuments from 13th to 20th century) from Zaduzbine Kosova (The Foundations of Kosovo), Prizren-Belgrade 1987, and other recent publications. Dragan Jovanovic, researcher, compiled the major part of this list.

On March 24th, 1999, NATO launched its 78-day round the clock aerial assault on the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia without the approval of the United Nations Security Council. Over a thousand NATO warplanes delivered over 2,000 airstrikes in nearly 40,000 sorties, dropping over 20,000 bombs over the former Yugoslavia, killing thousands of civilian men, women, and children, as well as upwards of a thousand Yugoslav soldiers and police.   NATO employed weapons considered criminal by international law such as depleted uranium and cluster bombs.   
The popular narrative is that is that the Western powers dropped these bombs ...
Outrageous: Slobodan Milosevic cleared of charges by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. But no-one is talking about it!
The ICTY (International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia) has discharged Slobodan Milosevic from 1992-95 Bosnian war crimes allegations. This is definitely prime time news, while it holds endless political implications. Oddly enough, though, no major international mainstream media seems to have noticed.
Well, it is understable for everyone to be keeping it quiet: those who with one voice did dub him the “butcher of the Balkans”; those who associated him to Hitler, initiating a pattern which would later be extended ...
The Ploesti old fields in southeastern Romania were a vital strategic bombing objective for the U.S. Army Air Force during World War II. Located 35 miles north of the capital Bucharest, Ploesti had formerly supplied one-third of Germany’s oil. The U.S. had targeted Ploesti to deprive the German military of petroleum. The U.S. first bombed Ploesti on June 12, 1942 during the HALPRO bombing raid. Then on August 1, 1943 during Operation Tidal Wave, a major bombardment was launched.
The Soviet Red Army advance on Yugoslavia and the capital Belgrade in 1944 was launched from Romania. Russian troops had captured Ploesti ...
On July 11, 1995, two NATO warplanes bombed Serbian forces, advancing on Srebrenica. But due to the bad weather and the fact that Serbian forces were holding French and Dutch prisoners of war, NATO called off what was to be a massive bombing campaign. Late in the afternoon, Serbian general Mladic and other commanders entered into Srebrenica. They had won, for the moment. This loss by NATO could not accept and through indirect manipulation and false representation of the facts, US and NATO slandered the Serbs and successfully changed the presentation of a legal military operation. Radio Voice of Russia ...
Waffen SS troops in the Albanian Battalion of the Handzar Division, wearing SS-issued Albanian skullcaps, Bosnia, 1944
SS Reichsfuehrer Heinrich Himmler formed a Kosovo Albanian Muslim Nazi SS Division during World War II, the Skanderbeg SS Division, 21st Waffen Mountain Division of the SS Skanderbeg (1st Albanian), in 1944. He planned to form a second Kosovo Albanian Muslim SS Division but was not able to because the war ended before he could do so. The history of the Skanderbeg division has been documented and analyzed. What has rarely been analyzed, however, is the role of the Kosovo Albanian Muslim members in ...
The so called "Croatian scenario", is something that has been periodically brought up after the start of the armed conflict in Donbass. (Among other instances, yours truly noted this in articles from this past December 17 and August 24, 2015.) Promoted at Johnson's Russia List, the December 28 Euromaidan Press article "What Ukraine Can Take from the 'Croatian Scenario' of Conflict Resolution", omits some key factors for being apprehensive about the probability for success of an Operation Storm like strike against the Donbass rebels.
In 1995, the Serb Yugoslav leader Slobodan Milosevic, had essentially dropped the Krajina Serbs, with the hope that he could improve his relationship with the West. At ...
In the period before the 1999 NATO attack on Yugoslavia, the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) waged a campaign to secede and establish an independent Kosovo dominated by Albanians and purged of every other ethnic group. In October 1998, KLA spokesman Bardhyl Mahmuti spelled the KLA’s vision: “We will never change our position. The independence of Kosovo is the only solution…We cannot live together [with Serbs]. That is excluded.”
Once NATO’s war came to an end, the KLA set about driving out of Kosovo every non-Albanian and every pro-Yugoslav Albanian it could lay its hands on. The KLA left in its wake ...
Central Bosnia in 2016: Flags of the ISIS
The conflicts that engulfed the former Yugoslavia still remain unresolved in the political arena and open to Western political shenanigans and covert meddling from Turkey and Saudi Arabia in Bosnia and Kosovo. Orthodox Christianity faces many attacks and only a naïve individual would claim that America and the hands of Turkey and Saudi Arabia are clean.
America and other Western nations did little to stop Turkey invading Cyprus in 1974 and creating a de-facto nation and altering the demographics of northern Cyprus and using this area for military purposes.
Irrespective of the rights and wrongs ...
Abstract: This article investigates the Russian foreign politics at the region of the Balkan Peninsula after the dissolution of the Soviet Union at the time of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) World Order in relation to the Pan-Slavic ideals of intra-Slavic solidarity, reciprocity and brotherhood. The particular stresses are put on four main research topics: 1. The Pan-Slavism and Russia; 2. Relations between pro-Western and pro-Orthodox approaches of the Russian national interests on Russia’s domestic political scene; 3. Different attitudes towards the Balkans in Russia; and 4. Historical ties and future perspectives between Russia and the Serbs. A research ...
Known and documented, since the Soviet-Afghan war, recruiting Mujahideen (“holy warriors”) to fight covert wars on Washington’s behest has become an integral part of US foreign policy.
A 1997 Congressional document by the Republican Party Committee (RPC), while intent upon smearing President Bill Clinton, nonetheless sheds light on the Clinton administration’s insidious role in recruiting and training jihadist mercenaries with a view to transforming Bosnia into a “Militant Islamic Base”.
In many regards, Bosnia and Kosovo (1998-1999) were “dress rehearsals” for the destabilization of the Middle East (Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen).
With regard to Syria, the recruitment of jihadists (according to Israeli intelligence ...
Jasenovac in Croatia was the third largest World War II concentration camp in Europe by number of victims. It was operated by the Catholic and Nazi-allied Ustasha government. Wartime Croatia has been called “one great slaughterhouse.”
The prisoners – mostly Serbs, Jews and Roma had their throats cut with specially designed knives, or they were killed with axes, mallets and hammers; they were also shot, or they were hung from trees or light poles. Some were burned alive in hot furnaces, boiled in cauldrons, or drowned in the River Sava.
Here the most varied forms of torture were used. Finger and toe nails were pulled out with ...
The Balkans has always been cursed by a recurring theme: that each entity within it can, at some point, become greater and more consuming in territory than the next neighbour. Each nation has, and in some instances continues, to nurse dreams of enlargement, pecking away at borders and assuming that few will notice.
Strategies of expansion tend to have one problem: they are hard to evaluate in the way of conventional agreement, contract or conspiracy. For decades, historians of various shades would attribute to Imperial Germany a conscious, global goal of conquest, mistaking the plans of contingent invasion with actual policy.
United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244 (1999) guaranteeing sovereignty and territorial integrity of Serbia and the autonomy of Kosovo and Metohija within Serbia, is the highest binding legal document that obliges all UN members, including the member states of the EU, NATO, the OSCE, the OIC, the African Union.
Resolution 1244 is the only reliable basis and the framework for any negotiations concerning status. Owing to grave mistakes made by the former Serbian authorities, the UN system has produced certain damaging documents of advisory and non-binding character. It is vital that no similar or even greater mistakes are made either ...
The U.S. government and U.S. media explained the mass murders of Kosovo Serbs, Roma, and other Kosovo minorities as “revenge murders”. They were “revenge attacks”. The expulsion of over 250,000 Kosovo Serbs, Roma, Gorani, and Jews was simply censored and deleted using the infowar technique of Emphasis. These infowar techniques have no basis in criminal law and violate fundamental values and tenets of morality and ethics.
The U.S. rationale was spurious: Because Yugoslav police were defending themselves and Kosovo civilians against what the U.S. State Department itself declared were “terrorists”, the Albanian Muslim population of Kosovo had some sort of right ...
The following text was written in the immediate wake of the 1999 NATO bombings of Yugoslavia and the invasion of Kosovo by NATO troops.
It is now well established that the war on Yugoslavia was waged on a fabricated humanitarian pretext and that extensive war crimes were committed by NATO and the US.
In retrospect, the war on Yugoslavia was a “dress rehearsal” for subsequent US-NATO sponsored humanitarian wars including Afghanistan (2001), Iraq (2003), Libya (2011), Syria (2011), Ukraine (2014).
Who are the war criminals? In a bitter irony, the so-called International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague is controlled ...
