Kosovo-Metochia, Novo Brdo
The Albanian Roman Catholic mass was Served in Serbian ancient town and mine, Novo Brdo, in Serbian Orthodox Church of Saint Nikola. All was done secretly and illegally, as is usually done by those who are self-aware of the guilt, Albanian Roman Catholic bishops held a mass at the remains of the ancient Serbian Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas in Novo Brdo, Kosovo and Metohija.
The Mass, served by the Roman Catholic Bishop of so-called Kosovo Dodd Jerji and the Archbishop of Bar, Montenegro Zeph Gashi with the clergy, was also attended by the (Albanian) director of the Pristina Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments, Ismet Hajrulah. The public was informed of the delay, thanks to the newsletter of the Roman Catholic Diocese in Pristina. However, to make things right, Archpriest Stevo Mitric immediately shined his guide in the same place.
The Diocese of Raska-Prizren made a statement announcing the abuse of the spiritual and cultural heritage of the SPC (Serbian Orthodox Church) on a site founded and built by medieval Serbian rulers, as recorded in domestic and foreign historical literature. However, he did not fail to point out that he was disappointed with the move by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kosovo, since, as he noted, the “hitherto fair and correct” relations of the two churches in Kosovo and Metohija were disrupted.
Asked if the move by the diocese of Kosovo can be considered authentic, or given the relationship between Belgrade and Pristina and the involvement of a foreign factor in the problem, one can say that politics is behind it, the Serbian historian Milosh Kovich says, as it is today, – mapping territory.
“You have heard the speech of the Albanian bishop on the ruins of St. Nicholas Church, the stories that Albanians were present here before Christ, before the Ottomans, etc. That’s a completely unhistorical story, still distinctly nationalistic. The words of the director of the Prishtina Institute show that it is an eminently political mapping, marking of the territory.
Тhe official representatives of the Vatican should react, take a stance about the Albanian occupation of the Serbian Orthodox shrine, so we could find out where does this crime comes from,” says a professor Kovich.
Even though the awful story happened last week, the Vatican turns a blind eye.
However, the Vatican has still not recognized NATO – created Albanian quasi-state.
Flags of Vatican and Albania
But in this case, even the papal nuncio in Belgrade remains mute.
Alas, as Latin saying teaches Qui tacet consentire videtur ( Silence implies consent) it is, more or less clear about the position of the top Vatican clergy.
The silent support to the Albanian occupation of Kosovo that the Vatican provides the quasi-state with should not come as a surprise.
Reminder: The Papal inauguration of Pope Francis that was held on 19 March 2013 in St. Peter’s Square in the Vatican. A Muslim/non-Christian/ PM of (still) unrecognized (by the Vatican) pseudo-state of ‘Kosovo’ Hashim Thaci was standing shoulder to shoulder to long-term Albanian lobbyist Joseph ‘Joe’ Biden at the Papal inauguration.
Hashim Tachi visited Vatican in 2016 when he organized mass at the Vatican dedicated to Mother Teresa.
Last year Ramush Haradinai, another Muslim Albanian war criminal, was received on the highest level in the Vatican.
This is how RTK (radio-television of ”Kosovo”) covered the story:
“During his visit to the Vatican, Prime Minister of Kosovo Ramush Haradinaj met Pope Francis to whom he expressed the commitment of the people of Kosovo to preserve and foster spiritual and democratic values for the common good.”
“Kosovo is grateful to the Holy See for always finding open doors. The blessing of Pope Francis is further encouragement for the path being pursued by Kosovo and its people, the path of European civilization,” Haradinaj said after the meeting.
Even though there are the undoubtedly established historical facts about the Serbian origin of Saint Nicholas church in Novo Brdo, despite the fact that it has been known since ever that St. Nicholas church in Novo Brdo is an Orthodox Metropolitan Church, the seat of the metropolitan and that this was evidenced by both Muslim and Catholic sources from that time, that didn’t mean anything to these 21st centuries joint Catholic – Muslim crusade.
The violent act of Vatican and Albanians is just one more attempt to convert the Orthodox Church to Catholic and, as time passes by, to an Albanian shrine, since there are Catholic Albanians in the area but Serbs are mostly Orthodox.
This is a part of annulling, deleting traces of the existence of Serbian nation, and it started when the Albanians ( supported by NATO and later Google) violently started to change millennium-old toponyms and turn them into Albanian.
At the same time in Albania, not a single stone was left to testify about the presence of Serbs or other nations.
It was destroyed in the time of Enver Hoxha or renamed into the Albanian heritage.
That’s a continuation of the century-old Albanian policy of destruction of Serbian cultural, historical and religious traces.
For example, by 1966. Law, the state of Albania forbade all personal Slavic names and all Slavic toponyms.
Immediately after the Law, came the so-called Flood of Religion (1967): Destroying the places of worship (in practice exclusively non-Islamic, non-Catholic, but Orthodox) digging over cemeteries – again non-Islamic, non-Catholic, – just Orthodox.
Ten years later, in 1975, even a more rigid decree was brought. It sealed the fate of Serbs in Albania mostly living in and around the city of Skadar. According to the decree, our people (our people in Albania at that time, apart from Serbs, were also Montenegrins and Macedonians) had to give up their “non-Albanian names” because they sound “inappropriate” or “degrading from a political, moral or ideological standpoint.”
At the same time, Article 42 of the Constitution of Albania predicted that
”ethnic minorities in Albania were guaranteed the protection and development of their culture, their national traditions, the use of their mother tongue and the teaching of their mother tongue in schools, equality of development in all fields and social life…. ”.
What a shameless mimicry!
It does not take much mind to grasp the grave contradiction between the proclaimed (for marketing purposes, it would be said today) paradise and the true fate of national minorities in that country.
At the same time, hundreds of thousands of Albanians came to Serbia as migrants and continued their settlement in Serbia without interruption.
This is a striking and terrifying fact: only from the end of the Second World War until 1960, “more than 100,000 ha of Serbian land” was usurped by Albanian immigrants in Kosovo and Metohija (it was, therefore, the public property of Serbian citizens).
However, the XVII century Roman Catholic Bishop of Skadar was Petar Bogdani, an Albanian Catholic Bishop born in then – Ottoman empire near old Serbian capital Prizren. The Bishop was remembered as an excellent educated man who admired the beauty of Dečani Serbian monastery and Serb Orthodox Old Church Slavic chant (”la slavona, la piu polita et tersa delle altre”).
In his letters to the archbishop of Skopje, Andria Bogdani (who was his relative) the Bishop states:
”The core of Catholics in Serbia consists of the Albanians. That’s why the Catholic faith is called “la fede Albanese.
It happens that those of Albanians who, in their daily life, deal with Turks and Serbs, sometimes abolish their Catholicism, but after we explain them properly that it’s a sin, they easily return to the true faith.”
The small insight into the relations between Albanians and the Vatican reveals that they have always been running under the surface and that they’re both intense and close.
The Vatican didn’t recognize so-called Kosovo, but the Vatican named a ”Kosovo bishop – Albanian Dodë Gjergji, different from the bishop of Serbia (Stanislav Hocevar) there is Catholic Church of Kosovo, Pope receives Albanian leaders of stolen Serbian land as legitimate officials(presidents, prime ministers) of something called ”Kosovo”…
The same as NATO, Vatican uses Albanians to spread its power over never conquered Serbian territories and, as it was the case with the US and NATO, that’s a mutual benefit for both parties – the Vatican reaches new territories, Albanians create the so-called Greater Albania.
One day, when the circumstances and balance of power change, they will easily change again, like they did numerous times until today – under Ottomas they were eager Turks (impaling, robbing, raping, murdering Serbs). Even the Ottoman who burned relics of Saint Sava on the Vracar hill in Belgrade, Sinan Pasha, was an ethnic Albanian from Kacanik, Kosovo. There’s a mosque built in the honour of the jihadist in his birthplace.
Catholics when it’s opportune, Nazi soldiers (notorious SS Skanderbeg), atheists (post-WW II Communist Albania) even Orthodox (since they managed to capture Serbian Orthodox land where Orthodox traces are dominant even though the Albanians’ve been burning down and destroying for almost two decades, couldn’t destroy it all). Is it al taqiyya brought to perfection?
Loyola and Machiavelli at their best?
That’s what probably even the Albanians don’t know anymore.
But the Vatican knows.
War criminal and “President” of “Kosovo Republic” Hashim Tachi was received by Pope Francis in a private audience again on September 28th, 2017 in the Vatican

New mosque in Kosovo-Metochia, built up after June 1999
Ukraine has a complex historical background and most people have little knowledge of this. The western part of Ukraine known as Galicia has an especially complex history. Going back for more than a thousand years, this region had been settled by Slavic tribes who formed the western extension of the Kievan Rus. To the west it had Polish, Lithuanian, Hungarian and Austrian neighbours. And to its misfortune, these neighbours took turns attacking and subjugating these early Ukrainians. It was largely Poland and Austria that took turns suppressing and occupying the region, economically and culturally. Because of this, although Galicia’s population ...
The foreign policy of the United States in the post-Cold War era, driven by a doctrine of Exceptionalism and managed by a neoconservative strategy, has been responsible for the invasion of Iraq in 2003, Nato’s war on Libya in 2011 and the covert war waged in Syria using Islamist proxies. It was also at the root of its involvement in the overthrow of the democratically elected government of Ukraine in 2014. But the geopolitical advantage intended in each enterprise has brought the proverbial blowback.The results are plain to see. Libya is now certifiably a failed state. Accompanying the destruction of ...
The Western-backed myth of a Greater SerbiaMuch space, time and efforts have been devoted in the recent history of West Balkans, and in particular in the latest political upheavals, about the alleged project of a Greater Serbia especially by the Western authors either academic scholars or journalists. The issue must be, however, considered together with its counterparts from Croatia (a Greater Croatia) and Albania (a Greater Albania). There are two focal questions that arose here:Were all these projects serious and what was the origin of this maximalist concept of forming the national states in the otherwise ethnically mixed area?Whose exact ...

On March 11, 2006, President Slobodan Milosevic died in a NATO prison. No one has been held accountable for his death. In the 12 years since the end of his lonely struggle to defend himself and his country against the false charges invented by the NATO powers, the only country to demand a public inquiry into the circumstances of his death came from Russia when Foreign Minister, Serge Lavrov, stated that Russia did not accept the Hague tribunal’s denial of responsibility and demanded that an impartial and international investigation be conducted. Instead, The NATO tribunal made its own investigation, known ...

Exclusive: U.S. mainstream media sees itself as the definer of what’s true and what’s “propaganda,” but has gotten lost in a fog of self-delusion and is now the principal purveyor of “post-truth” news, writes Nicolas J S Davies.
For several months, Western officials and media outlets repeated thousands of times that there were between 250,000 and 300,000 civilians trapped under Syrian and Russian bombardment in East Aleppo. Western reports rarely mentioned the Syrian government’s estimate that there were only one-third that number of civilians in the rebel-controlled enclave – nor that its estimates were solidly based on what it had found in Homs and other ...
If Trump can defeat the oligarchy and save America, he can go down in history as Trump the Great.
Liberals, progressives, and the left-wing (to the extent that one still exists) are aligning with the corrupt oligarchy against president-elect Trump and the American people.
They are busy at work trying to generate hysteria over Trump’s “authoritarian personality and followers.” In other words, the message is: here come the fascists.
Liberals and progressives wailed and whined about “an all white male cabinet,” only to be made fools by Trump’s appointment of a black male and two women, one a minority and one a Trump ...

On January 20, the Turkish military began an invasion of the Kurdish-controlled Afrin region in northern Syria. Turkey’s government has declared that its operation aims “to preserve Syria’s territorial integrity,” remove “terrorist elements,” and protect civilians.The Independent, however, published the first Western media report from Afrin, and Robert Fisk reports that the list of dead includes infants. “One-year old Wael al-Hussein, a refugee…was killed on 21 January, six-year old Moussab al-Hussein from Idlib (clearly from another refugee family) on the same day,” he writes.Many journalists in Turkey, in the meanwhile, are rubbing their hands.

Congratulations to the city of Kaunas, Lithuania, once known also as Kovno (in Yiddish Kóvne) on its selection as Europe’s “Capital of European Culture” in 2022, sharing the title with Esch-sur-Alzette in Luxembourg.The city’s leaders now have a splendid opportunity to take the moral high road in dealing with a number of ghosts from the present and the past. To start with the present, will the city’s officials now act rapidly to avoid a public perception disaster by moving this year’s neo-Nazi parade away from the city center during the February 16th Independence Day celebrations? Previous years’ marches have on occasion glorified actual Kaunas Holocaust collaborators, causing deep pain to Survivors ...
Barack Obama’s speech on the Ukrainian crisis seems to have left the public confused as he claimed that Kosovo broke away from Serbia “after a referendum”. But attentive listeners quickly pointed Obama’s gaps in history – there was no referendum in Kosovo. Video here.President Obama was speaking Wednesday at The Center for Fine Arts in the heart of Brussels, Belgium, and was telling the youth crowd mostly about Russian-Ukrainian conflict over the strategic Crimean Peninsula.He lashed out at Russia for “violation of international law, its assault on Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”Obama recalled the conflict around Kosovo and NATO’s involvement, ...
Russian President Vladimir Putin put it succinctly when he recently warned that prospects for peace in Ukraine were negligible as long as the current authorities in Kiev remain in power. Worse, given a new rash of provocations by the Kiev regime, the entire region is being threatened with conflict, and even all-out war.It seems clear – and criminally reprehensible – that the Kiev regime and its President Petro Poroshenko are intent on dragging the United States and the NATO military alliance into a war with Russia. The incendiary conduct of Ukrainian politicians and their military is that of a regime ...
IntroductionThe last open armed conflict in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia – FYROM (former Socialist Republic of Macedonia as one of six federal republics of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) in May 2015 was just an expected continuation of constant tensions between the ethnic Albanians and the Macedonian Slavs during the last quarter of a century.[i] However, these tensions are time to time transformed into the open armed conflicts of the Albanian extremists, usually coming from Kosovo, with the Macedonian security forces.The most notable conflict incidents in Macedonia after the Kosovo War in 1998−1999, when the Kosovo Albanians ...
What a fine race it has become! Both Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump are competing in it as a who is the ‘tougher guy/gal’ in what could be easily described as a 21st Century Tarantino-style (or Scorsese-style) political pulp fiction gore.
What they both utter, may often sound like some staged bluff: “Are you talking to me? Hey, there’s nobody else here… Are you talking to me?”
But just think for a moment what would really happen if one of them sticks to his or her ‘promises’ and ‘principles’, after getting elected! (The bullets would be flying, the nukes exploding, and millions ...
Contemporary historiography and the Slavonic studies upon the question of the ethnolinguistic origin of the Croats and the Serbs more and more incline on the side of those authors who support the linguistic theory of the Indo-Sarmatian (the Iranian) origins of proto-Croats and proto-Serbs.The Indo-European Iranian originAccording to this contemporary explanation, Croats and Serbs were the people of the Iranian (the Sarmatian) origin, who migrated into the Balkans in the 7th century and subjected the Slavs there. However, in the course of time, they became totally slavicized (like proto-Turkic Bulgars who were settled on the Balkans between the Danube River ...
The historical and political precedents for the creation of a greater Sqiperia or Greater Albania was set during World War II when the Kosovo and Metohija regions along with territory Southwest of lake Skutari from Montenegro and the western region of Southern Serbia, or Juzna Srbija (now part of Macedonia), were annexed to Albania by the Axis powers led by Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany, under a plan devised by Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler to dismember and to destroy the Serbian Nation and people, which the Germans and Italians perceived as the main threat to the Axiss powers and ...
In 1991, a delegation of the German Bundestag visited Kosovo for the first time in order to talk with Kosovo Albanian nationalist leaders. This prompted – as early as 1991! – the warning by a senior member of the Yugoslavian parliament that “the British and the Germans would create a common intervention force with 70,000 soldiers in order to intervene in Kosovo.”  Indeed an early and accurate prophecy! So what about Germany’s role in preparing for the Kosovo war?There were and there are strategic differences between German and the US policies about how to retain or enhance hegemony. “As ...
“I’ll never live to see 9/11 justice,” says Stephen Lendman. The 9/11 attacks have changed the course of humanity, even so for sixteen years have not been minimally clarified but turned the world in a place full of fear and hate as the United States spreads its military bases all over the world, having 737 and more than 2,500,000 U.S. personnel serving across the planet.Stephen Lendman, one of the world’s most respected analysts, speaks with Pravda Report on the consequences of those attacks, and President Trump’s denial of his promises during the presidential campaign to investigate the day that has killed more than one million people ...
In 1917, the Austro-Hungarian government erected a monument to Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife the Duchess Sophie in Sarajevo on the third year anniversary of the assassinations on June 28. It was called the Sühnedenkmal or Spomenik umorstva, The Atonement or Expiation Monument. The bronze statue was by Hungarian sculptor Eugen Bori.
