Every now and then we are being bombed by some terms in order to get used to them and accept them as something regular, accurate and correct. Such a thing happened with the toponym of Kosovo.
The same method was applied in Bosnia and Herzegovina, i.e with the toponym of Bosnia, which once was an Orthodox Christian medieval kingdom, meanwhile global media portrays it as it’s exclusively Bosnian Muslim land regardless the fact that history, old books speak differently. In that sense here are the facts easy to check:
SERBIAN SETTLEMENT IN BOSNIA-HERZEGOVINA BEGAN IN THE SEVENTH CENTURY A.D.
Note: Croats settled much later and in insignificant numbers. That is why they are not mentioned much in the literature.
Encyclopedia Britannica, Edition 1990
Reference: EB, Edition 1990, Volume 29, Macropedia, page 1098, Entry: Yugoslavia, Bosnia and Herz.
THE EMPEROR CONSTANTINE VII PORPHYROGENITUS (reigned 913-957) REFERRED TO BOSNIA AS PART OF *THE LAND OF THE SERBS*.
Collier’s Encyclopedia, Edition 1956
Reference: Collier’s Encyclopedia P.F. Collers & Sons Corporation Volume 19, Edition 1956, YUGOSLAVIA, … Ethnology and Population, page 661
BOSNIA-HERCEGOVINA… THE LARGEST SINGLE NATIONAL ELEMENT IS THE ORTHODOX SERBS, followed by Moslem Slavs (few of whom can trace their origin to Turkish colonists) and Catholic Croats…
…The republics of Croatia and Slovenia are predominantly Roman Catholic, while the republics of Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro, and BOSNIA-HERCEGOVINA (!!!) are predominantly ORTHODOX
After the digression, let’s return to the Kosovo case. Kosovo is a part of a sovereign, old European state, Serbia. It’s scandalous and makes no sense to use the name of the region for establishing another Albanian state, inhabited by ethnic Albanians who flooded the place first with the Ottomans as a part of their armed forces, later with Hitler as his ally, during the Tito rule, and finally after three months of NATO aggression on Serbia.
The poet Milan Rakic, while writing the lyrics to the Kosovo heroes, sang about those who defeated the same those who grabbed the name of Kosovo:
“Kosovo heroes, merit your last best. In bloody horror, When the rotten realm of arms swings, Every corpse is a conscious victim, a true hero. ”
Today, according to global media (and even some Serbian), the “ Kosovo heroes ” would have been Bitici, Thaci, Haradinaj and Albanian terrorists. All Albanians, just not Serbs – same those who, while in the service of another force were defeated by true Kosovo heroes.
On 28 June 1916, Britain commemorated Kossovo Day. The Manchester Guardian reports:
“In all the strange developments of wartime, there can hardly be anything of such curious significance as Kossovo Day as it is being kept this year. That in London and Manchester and other English cities people should meet and demonstrate in memory of a battle which occurred in The Balkans 527 years ago – here surely is an extraordinary thing”.
So what was this extraordinary thing? Kossovo Day, 28 June, to the Serbian people is the day when they commemorate the Battle of Kossovo between the Serbs and the Turks which took place on the Plain of Kossovo in 1389. Although the battle ended in a stalemate, the Turks had a larger surviving army than the Serbs. As a result, Serbia gradually became absorbed into the Ottoman Empire and the Serbian people always commemorated 28 June in the hope that one day they would once again be free of the Ottoman Empire.
During World War I Britain had come to admire Serbia. In autumn/winter 1914 the Serbs defeated the Austrians in three battles. Links with Serbia which had started during the first two Balkan Wars in 1912 and 1913 were cemented. The Serbian Relief Fund was set up by academic Robert Seton-Watson and others and had the support of many influential people, the Queen agreed to be a patron.
The Scottish Women’s Hospitals was founded by Dr Elsie Inglis, a Scottish doctor, and drew its support from local Suffrage Societies. Through both these organizations and others, doctors, nurses and other relief workers went out to Serbia to tend to the wounded soldiers. As they went out they grew to love the Serbian nation and its people.
During World War I, respected Serbs such as the Serbian Orthodox priest Father Nikolai Velimirović and academic Dr Milan Ćurčin were able to tell Britain what their country was going through – the war, the typhus epidemic and finally the defeat of Serbia by the armies of Germany, Austro-Hungary and Bulgaria in 1915.
Admiration of the Serbian people grew as any who could make the journey, including the King and the Prince Regent, retreated over the mountains of Montenegro and Albania and ended up in Corfu and Corsica.
So because the Serbian people were exiled and unable to commemorate their national day, Kossovo Day was to be commemorated in Britain.
Not the Albanians. No ”Kosovars”. Serbs are the people of Kosovo, not Albanians.
And what we read in the media across the globe? For example: ”The elections will be held in Kosovo after the Kosovo PM, Haradinai resigned due to the accusation concerning war crimes against Serbs, both civilians and policemen. ”
Global media, as well as some Serbs, member of the Comprador Elite, have accepted the Albanization of Kosovo. Instead of at least agreeing among themselves that this kind of organization (since it cannot be considered a state), made on the abducted land, mass murder and exodus of Serbs (by Albanians) cannot be considered as Kosovo, that the documents issues in Pristina are issued by Albanians, in Albanian language and not by any Kosovars in some ”Kosovar language”, lot of people, first in the media and then in personal communication, do what the illegal occupiers want: they accept and spread the lie that Kosovo is a synonym for Albanian and what’s identified as ‘’Kosovo’’ is actually Albanian. It would be easy to reject any such Albanian attempt in an extremely simple way. It would be enough to ask Taci or any of the Albanians, what was their national status in former Yugoslavia and Serbia.
They would answer that they were a national /ethnic minority (the ethnic minorities in Yugoslavia were Albanians, Hungarians, Bulgarians, Italians, Slovaks, Romanians etc.).
Which one national minority?
– The Albanian national minority. (Not some phantom – nation of Kosovars, but just Albanians.
The same can be found in old records, encyclopedias, and even in Encyclopedia Britannica at least in the entries before the 1990s).
Because it all starts with words and “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”.
Thus with the ‘’help’’ of the manipulation, the toponym “Kosovo” (as well as the adjective), that used to awake pride, warrior spirit, patriotism, which reminded of the marvelous Serbian epic cycles, as well as the slender appearance of the Kosovo maiden, sunny peony field, ancient Serbian monasteries and sacrifice on the Kosovo field, is being slowly moved away from the common heroic and glorious point of the Serbian national being, and shifted into a negative, unjust, organ harvesting, killing point with the character of bloody knives, terror with two-headed black eagle and churches in flames … – the images that are offensive to anyone who owns even basic knowledge about Kosovo.
Whose Kosovo is and has always been, can be observed through the Serbian epic poetry, whose corpus is divided into cycles:
Poems about the liberation of Serbia and Montenegro – poems about the 19th-century battles against the Ottomans
It seems that today, more than ever, are important the words of Sergey Karamurza, who wrote that
“giving a false name is as important in manipulating as it is to give a saboteur good documents and mask him in the uniform of his enemy.”
There’s a predatory Albanian paw that grabs Kosovo, abducting all that the word bears: history, tradition, monasteries, soil and the Kosovo epic poetry.
We must fight against it by all means in a war in which each of us is a soldier, and battle and weapons are but a single, only one word.
For the time being.
This was a long digression but I believe that it was necessary to warn the audience about how unjust it is to steal someone’s identity.
The invaders, who, with the help of their NATO master and protector, have invaded Serbia, murdering thousands, exterminating several hundreds of thousands of people, taking their homes, towns and villages, now steal the name of their region.
Naming these organ harvesters, rapers of children and narco-terrorists as ”president” ”minster” ”prime minister” or ”parliament”, even ” Kosovars” or ”the people of Kosovo” is beyond perversion and immorality – imagine if a gang breaks into someone’s house, kills the owners , butchers them to pieces and takes their documents, identity, credit cards and continue to live as if they’re the people they actually killed and all the neighbourhood pretends as everything is ok when the murderers and robbers take their identity, when they proudly show the nice furniture, old, luxury portraits of ”their” ancestors, ”their” yard, ”their” library… and all that actually belongs to their victims.
That’s what happens every time somewhere someone (ab)uses the term ”Kosovo” to speak about the Albanian mafia that, by the will of the EU, USA globalists allied to Islamists, rules the province today.
Kosovo is the house in fabula. Serbs were the butchered family. The Albanians are robbers. I urge people, bloggers, from alt and msm media, from both Serbian and foreign media, to stop calling the robbers by our name. They have nothing to do with the name of Kosovo.
Serbian historic, cultural and religious treasure and traces in Kosovo. Unfortunately, after 1999, the Albanian invaders managed to destroy, by arson, blasts, several hundred monasteries, churches and shrines as well as other parts of the treasure.

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 ...
The Christian population that had made up one fifth of the Ottoman Empire’s population was wiped out in waves of violence by successive Ottoman and Turkish republican governments that left Christians a tiny minority in Anatolia, two Israeli scholars have said in a new study.The controversy over the killings of the Armenian Christian minority living in Anatolia during the last days of the Ottoman Empire is already well known – while the majority of the scholarly community and many international states recognise the killings as genocide, Turkey accepts that killings took place but rejects they constituted a genocide.Israeli historians Benny ...
June 10 is a sad date in the history of the UN, the institution originally meant to play the key role in ensuring peace, security, and the primacy of law in the world. The decade since the passing of the June 10, 1999 UN Security Council Resolution 1244 addressing the Kosovo problem – the document totally ignored throughout the period – has shown that the UN is no longer playing the role prescribed to it by the post-World War II system of the international law. The Resolution the tenth anniversary of which nobody seems willing to celebrate in the UN ...
To clarify the importance of the January 23rd coup attempt in Venezuela we remember that ever since WWII the customary motivation for violations of the Convention on Genocide has been to gain a region’s natural resources. For example Iraq, Libya, Syria, Haiti, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, Guatemala, and others. The people of resource-rich areas are forced into flight, exile, refuge elsewhere, or are attacked by disease, or starvation, or directly murdered by military programs, or divided internally into civil wars assuring the death of multitudes.Damages are inter-generational with the effects of depleted uranium weaponry or ...
Twenty years ago, on 24 March 1999, Operation Allied Force began – the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia that led to the country’s dismemberment – and the independent state of Kosovo was proclaimed. Yet these events were far from historically contingent, as some people claim. So who orchestrated the breakup of Yugoslavia and how?These days, few remember that the Bulgarians were at the start of it all. Even the Bulgarians themselves don’t like to think about it.In early March 1999, Bulgaria’s National Intelligence Service told Germany’s Federal Intelligence Service (BND) that it had information about a secret plan by the Yugoslav ...

I travel frequently to the countries which once made up the now defunct Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, satisfying a passion of mine that stems back to my childhood days. For me, the Balkans’ history, its people and its cultures are both enigmatic and magnetic, as they have been, too, for countless others, of many nationalities, over centuries gone by.
Accounting for the enchantment of the Balkans, its captivating allure, is a challenge to put into writing. Because no words can truly embellish what is one of the most absorbing parts of the world. To understand and feel what it is ...
TRANSCRIPT:Harold Channer (HC): Good evening and welcome very, very much to the conversation. We’re pleased to welcome to the program, Sean Gervasi. He is a professor and academic who is concerned with economics and particularly with what is relevant to what we want to talk about tonight. He has just returned from a long stay in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, and knows something of that situation. Sean Gervasi, welcome very, very much to the conversation, and back to New York. Before we go into some detail about what in the world is going on in terms of the Balkans, from your experience ...
Since World War II most of the world’s conflicts have revolved around struggles for independence against Western and Japanese colonial/imperial regimes.Following formal independence, a new type of imperial domination was imposed – neo-colonial regimes, in which the US and its European allies imposed vassal rulers acting as proxies for economic exploitation. With the rise of US unipolar global domination, following the demise of the USSR (1990), the West established hegemony over the East European states. Some were subject to fragmentation and sub-divided into new NATO dominated statelets.The quest for a unipolar empire set in motion a series of wars and ...
The U.S. military base in Kosovo was constructed in 1999 without consulting with the government of Serbia and is the largest U.S. military base built outside of the U.S. since the Vietnam War. The site was apparently used for extraordinary renditions and has been referred to as a “little Guantanamo”. This is a very little known fact as NATO, the U.S., the European Union and the West are in the process of forcing Serbia to effectively give up Kosovo, and indicates the real motive for the West’s support of the Kosovo Liberation Army which it had deemed a terrorist organization ...
Kacanik, KOSOVO – A plume of smoke hangs over our table in the corner of a dark, shabby café in this rugged town in southern Kosovo. The lanky 19-year-old sitting next to me is chain-smoking through half a pack of L&Ms, his hands trembling as he recalls how he joined one of the world's most brutal militant Islamist groups.
Through his neatly trimmed beard, Adem, who asks me not to use his real name for fear of arrest, says he had never even left Kosovo. But two years ago, he found himself on the perilous and far-off Turkey-Syria border -- a ...
Western allies raped hundreds of thousands of German women, writes German historian Miriam Gebhardt in a book published under the name “When the soldiers came” (Als die Soldaten kamen) and which received both praise and criticism in Germany.“At least 860,000 women and girls, but also men and young boys, were raped by ally soldiers after the fall of the Third Reich and in the postwar period. It happened everywhere,” writes Gebhardt, noting that US soldiers were the ones who did it the most.The book strongly echoed in Germany, where information on such crimes was known before but was almost exclusively ...
My refusal to believe ongoing Western media reports of “Russian aggression” makes me a “Kremlin troll”. My punishment for not towing the “party line” – simple, effective “shunning” by Western media – has not, however, diminished my ongoing commitment to seeing the other side.
Having previously investigated the Crimean reunification with Russia, this May I turned my attention to the birth of two new government formations in Eastern Ukraine, the Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) and the Lugansk People’s Republic (LNR). Americans only hear either what Kiev “reports”, or the US propaganda machine puts out – these are puppet regimes born of ...
Michigan-based filmmaker Michael Moore makes the connection between Kosovo and the Columbine shooting in his Academy Award-winning documentary Bowling for Columbine (2002). Moore puts Kosovo in the context of a broader U.S. foreign policy agenda and a domestic culture of violence. Moore asks: “Are we a nation of gun nuts or are we just nuts?”
In the first scene, Moore walks into the North Country Bank in Michigan to open an account. He saw an ad in the newspaper that the bank would give out free guns to those who open accounts there. Moore walks into the bank and tells the ...
Recapitulation of the Facts of the Korean WarNovember 7, 1950: “Just when there was a lull in the fighting and it looked as if peace were possible, MacArthur staged a gigantic and murderous raid directly across from the Chinese frontier, destroying most of a city in an area where bombings had been forbidden to prevent border violations.” “There were reports,” The New York Times said October 15, that General MacArthur had ordered the first bombings of North Korean cities without authorization from Washington.” “General Stratemeyer, commander of the Far East Air Forces described the attack: ‘when fighter planes swept the ...
Has your electric garage door stopped working? Does your dog wake up in the middle of the night and begin howling? Is the weather unseasonably hot, cold, windy, dry or wet? Has your television set (or refrigerator, or sound system or home alarm) inexplicably turned on, or off?
If one uncritically viewed the corporate-controlled media and accepted at face value the statements of much of official Washington, especially the Democratic Party, one could easily draw the conclusion that the Russians did it.
A paranoid frenzy is gripping the US political and media establishment. A ruling elite that commands the world’s largest economy ...
Introduction: The Missing LinkWhy did the US support the separatist and terrorist so-called Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA, or UCK in Shqip), which sought to create an ethnically pure Albanian Kosovo based on ethnicity? Why did the US sponsor a criminal and illegal separatist movement that sought to ethnically cleanse non-Albanians and create an independent state of Kosova? Why was the US supporting and sponsoring the re-establishment of a fascist-Nazi Greater Albania that Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini had initially created?When did the US begin to play a role in Kosovo? Did the US role in Kosovo begin with the arming ...
A Serb from Bosnia, General Mladic, protected Muslims civilians and gave them buses, food and water for to leave fighting zones (as you can see). There was no genocide over Muslim population in Srebrenica like main stream media want you to believe – there was no genocide over Bosniaks because all Bosnian Muslims victims were jihad fighters who had been killed during fight (in war). Even the so called „tribunal“ in The Hague for ex-Yugoslavia admitted that there was no genocide!
Now, you can see here how djihadistes have treated the Serbian population – the content is very hard, not for ...
Dechani monastery in Metochia - one of the most important shrines of Serbian Orthodox Church (14th century)
The region of Kosovo & Metohija was a political center of mediaeval Serbia and makes the very essence of Serbian spiritual and cultural identity and statehood since the Middle Ages up today. The biggest and the most important number of Serbian Orthodox mediaeval monasteries and churches (for instance, Gračanica, Pećka Patrijaršija, Bogorodica Ljeviška and Visoki Dečani) are built exactly in Kosovo & Metohija and the headquarters of the Serbian Orthodox Church – Patriarchate established in 1346 was located (till 1766) in the city of ...
Yugoslavia (the “land of South Slavs”) was a Balkan multi-ethnic state which emerged from the ruins of the Austrian-Hungarian Monarchy (est. 1867) and was officially announced to exist on December 1st, 1918 under the original name of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes.[i] The name was changed in June 1929 to the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. The country existed under such name till April 1941 when it was destroyed, occupied, and divided by the Axis Powers and their Balkan satellites. Legally, the state emerged from the 1917 Corfu Pact signed by the Government of Serbia on one hand and the ...
