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 Vatican

New mosque in Kosovo-Metochia, built up after June 1999
What we are seeing today in the fight over birth control is a revival of a very old, and very dangerous kind of Catholicism. It is not one supported or practiced by most Rank and File Catholics. It is a kind of Catholicism which has done irreparable harm. It is a kind of Catholicism unfit for existence in the modern world.It was the underpinning of the regimes of Mussolini in Italy, The National Catholicism of Francisco Franco, in Spain; The Parti Rexiste in Belgium; The Irish Blueshirts; The Croatian Ustaše, the Nazi puppet government in Croatia, and ultimately, was the ...
Professor Noam Chomsky said it would be “no small trick” for the Ferguson protests to turn into an anti-racism and social justice movement, considering America’s founding principles are slavery and the extermination of the indigenous population. In a sweeping interview covering everything from Iraq and Syria to China, capitalism, and the protests in Ferguson, MIT linguistics professor Chomsky told GRITtv’s Laura Flanders that events in Ferguson and the protests that have followed show how little race relations in the United States have advanced since the end of the Civil War.
“This is a very racist society,” Chomsky said. “It’s pretty shocking. ...
“Neocons” believe that the United States should not be ashamed to use its unrivaled power – forcefully if necessary – to promote its values around the world. Some even speak of the need to cultivate a US empire. Neoconservatives believe modern threats facing the US can no longer be reliably contained and therefore must be prevented, sometimes through preemptive military action.Most neocons believe that the US has allowed dangers to gather by not spending enough on defense and not confronting threats aggressively enough. One such threat, they contend, was Saddam Hussein and his pursuit of weapons of mass destruction. Since ...
"Please don’t write about Ya’ir Golan!" a friend begged me, “Anything a leftist like you writes will only harm him!"
So I abstained for some weeks. But I can’t keep quiet any longer.
General Ya’ir Golan, the deputy Chief of Staff of the Israeli army, made a speech on Holocaust Memorial Day. Wearing his uniform, he read a prepared, well-considered text that triggered an uproar which has not yet died down.
Dozens of articles have been published in its wake, some condemning him, some lauding him. Seems that nobody could stay indifferent.
The main sentence was: "If there is something that frightens me about ...
Yet another scandal is exploding on the Internet. The administration of free encyclopedia Wikipedia removed an article by a Russian researcher, devoted to assessing the loss of US citizens as a result of the Great Depression of 1932-33. Outraged bloggers began mass distribution of articles in the Russian segment of the popular blogging service Live journal. The material led to heated debates, while the so-called historical flash mob continues.Russian researcher Boris Borisov touched a really hot topic in his material on the estimated number of victims of the American Great Depression, which in turn, apparently caused a very strong reaction ...
The activities of aggressive nationalist and neo-Nazi armed movements in present-day Ukraine are the focal point of Moreira’s documentary. Their existence is not denied by any of his leading critics in France — even as they try to find excuses to justify their actions.

Forty-three years ago on September 11, 1973, the Chilean military led by General Augusto Pinochet, crushed the democratically elected Unidad Popular government of Salvador Allende.
The objective was to replace a progressive, democratically elected government by a brutal military dictatorship.
The military coup was supported by the CIA. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger played a direct role in the military plot. (Nixon and Kissinger, image right)
For details see: http://globalresearch.ca/articles/KOR309A.html and references below.
In the weeks leading up the coup, US Ambassador Nathaniel Davis and members of the CIA held meetings with Chile’s top military brass together with the leaders of the National Party and the ...
The United States has spent hundreds of billions on unnecessary wars, but only the UN relief agency for the Palestinians is improperly run
September 02, 2018 “Information Clearing House” – Now it’s out in the open: America has declared war on the Palestinians. With his son-in-law Jared Kushner, an expert on humanitarian organizations and Palestinian refugees, the great bully Donald Trump decided to end aid to the UN agency that aids Palestinian refugees. The official explanation: The business model and fiscal practices of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency made it an “irredeemably flawed operation.”
Trump and his son-in-law, the keepers of the seal of good government, ...
Greater Albania has been debating deployment in Syria. A Muslim state, a Balkan Caliphate in the heart of Europe, was supported by Internationalists when they created independent Kosovo and Bosnia. Kosovo registered its first Islamist political party in 2013.
UPDATE: An article on NYT on the inroads of Wahabism into Europe from the Saudi foothold in Kosovo is oozing criminal naiveté on the part of postmodern globalist thinkers. Bill Clinton’s nexus with the lobby for Greater Albania created a Islamic state in the heart of Europe. To those with basic knowledge of Islam and its 1400 year old history — not least ...
As the contemporary Corona virus hysteria narrative continues to collapse (here and here) another dubious narrative, launched a quarter of a century ago – Srebrenica genocide – comes to mind. The common thread of both narratives is that they have just enough genuine elements to provide a seemingly plausible foundation for a vastly exaggerated tale. The Covid-19 virus can endanger health, and even be lethal, to certain classes of the population, but how much more than that is it? In Srebrenica in July of 1995, about a thousand Muslim prisoners were executed by a rogue outfit of the Serb army. ...
For all the attention paid to the emergence of homegrown Islamist terrorists in Belgium, France and other European countries, one of the continent’s biggest radicalization problems is taking place on its fringes.Kosovo, the tiny Muslim-majority Balkan nation of just 1.8 million, has produced more foreign fighters per capita than any other Western nation since ISIS declared its now-defunct caliphate in 2014. Some 413 Kosovo citizens, including women and children, have joined that group and other Islamist extremist factions since the war in Syria began in 2012.As it attempts to join the European Union, Kosovo has been under pressure to stamp ...
The chemical poisoning of civilians in Syria has proved a boon and a blessing for the West’s militarists who energetically seek confrontation with Russia — and with China and any other countries that might pop up on their screens of raging aggression. Nobody doubts for an instant that chemical agents are vile and that anyone using them offensively should be severely punished. But the pseudo-sympathy of those who profess to be shocked — shocked! — by pictures of dead children, supposedly killed by chemical weapons, is obnoxious.
Trump declared “I will tell you that attack on children yesterday had a big ...

Greater Albania under Nazi GermanyDuring World War II, 35,000 to 40,000 Kosovo Albanians were recruited by Nazi Germany as part of the German occupation forces and security formations in Greater Albania, a state created by Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini that included Kosovo-Metohija, western Macedonia, and territory from Serbia and Montenegro. In Albania, there were 30,000 Albanians who were in the German occupation forces. In 1941, the German occupation forces created a Kosovo Albanian Gendarmerie with headquarters in Kosovska Mitrovica. In 1944, these forces were incorporated into the Skanderbeg Nazi SS Division. In 1942, Balli Kombetar organization battalions were established ...

Author’s noteThe following article focussing on the jihadist terrorist insurgency in Macedonia was first published by antiwar.com in July 2001, barely two months before the September 11, 2001 attacks on the WTC and the Pentagon.Known and documented, since the Soviet-Afghan war, recruiting Mujahedin (“holy warriors”) to fight covert wars on Washington’s behest had become an integral part of US foreign policy. A report of the US Congress had revealed how the US administration – under advice from the National Security Council headed by Anthony Lake – had “helped turn Bosnia into a militant Islamic base” leading to the recruitment through ...
The conflict that raged throughout the former Yugoslavia was met by a wall of silence when it came to important issues. These important issues apply to America and the United Kingdom supporting Islamists in a brutal civil war in Bosnia and then installing a new nation by ignoring international law in Kosovo. Also, is it credible to believe that the vast majority of major news agencies and national governments did not know about thousands of Islamists in Europe who were sent to slit the throats and behead Orthodox Christians?
After all, if the reality of what really happened in Bosnia and ...
“The main reason for that was not because of warfare or systematic killing, it’s because …diseases, …did not have any immunities, so they perished in large numbers.”The above statement, if said in reference to the slaughter of Jews in concentration camps by Nazis, would be illegal in most European countries. Individuals like David Irving, who have claimed that “disease” not homicidal gas chambers, killed the victims of Auschwitz and other concentration camps, have been fined and imprisoned. Claiming pure intentions on the part of the Nazis, revising the statistics on their atrocities, and purporting that those who say otherwise have ...
The former Yugoslavia was engulfed by many conflicts and ethnic and religious differences tore away at the very fabric of this nation. Like all wars, atrocities took place on all sides but the mass media in general focused on Serbian atrocities, while neglecting brutal crimes committed against the Serbian community. This certainly applies to the glossing over of war crimes done by the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA).
However, more and more evidence is coming to light about brutal KLA death camps and killing people for organs. Therefore, will former KLA members be charged with war crimes and will the “real truth” ...
For the first time since WW II, overt fascists hold real power in Europe. Radicalized ultranationalists. Anti-Semites. Hate-mongers.
Cold-blooded killers. Whitewashing high crimes. A puppet regime. America’s newest colony.
Mocking democratic values. Violating fundamental rule of law principles. Unaccountably.
Western leaders won’t explain. Nor will the media. Hard truths are buried.
Ukraine’s government usurped power forcibly. Putschist rule has no legitimacy.
Especially regimes waging war on their own people. Murdering them in cold blood. Committing horrendous human rights abuses.
Tolerating no opposition. Ruling by intimidation. Force-feeding neoliberal harshness on impoverished people. Making life unbearable overall. More on this below.
