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

How can it be that in virtually all of the Presidential-candidate head-to-head Democratic versus Republican polling that was done of both Democratic and Republican candidates during the primaries, the preferred Democratic candidate against any one of the Republican candidates was Bernie Sanders, but he almost certainly won’t be that Party’s nominee (and there’s more on that here); and the preferred Republican candidate against either one of the Democratic candidates was John Kasich, but he certainly won’t be the Republican nominee?Sanders and Kasich also scored the highest in his respective Party for net favorability rating, but almost certainly neither candidate will ...
The Liberal-Globalists are carrying out another socio-political experiment in the Balkan petri dish, this time using the Macedonians as lab rats for testing how to most effectively erode a people’s identity before rolling out their weaponized model for replicating this on a continental scale, which they hope will enable them to erase the various nationalisms of Europe in their quest to transform the EU into a “federation of regions”.

On November 21st, 2015 it was the 20th anniversary of the 1995 Dayton Peace Accord – a treaty signed by four Presidents (the USA, Croatia, Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina) that led to an end of the civil war in Bosnia-Herzegovina. As a result of the Dayton Peace Accord a new “independent and internationally recognized state” emerged: Bosnia-Herzegovina as a confederation of two political entities (the Republic of Srpska and the Muslim-Croat Federation) but ethnically strictly divided into three segments composed by the Serb, Croat and Muslim (today Boshnjak) controlled territories. In contrast to the Republic of Srpska (49% of the territory ...

More than 20 years after the Srebrenica massacre, Bosnian Serb General Ratko Mladić was found guilty of war crimes by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia this past November.Along with Mladić, the ICTY convicted the other so-called “Butcher of Bosnia”, the Bosnian Serb and former Republika Sprska leader Radovan Karadžić in 2016. Meanwhile, it fully exonerated the Bosnian Muslim army commander Naser Orić of similar charges which outraged the people of Serbia. Yet, it was the same court that posthumously exonerated former Serbian President Slobodan Milošević in 2016. If you weren’t aware of the latter, it’s because it ...
“We could become the first country to go fascist through free elections.” — William Shirer, The Rise and Fall of the Third ReichGenerally, we avoid using the word “fascism” in polite company, and until recently, a person pointing out parallels between Nazi Germany and the current United States would invite elevated eyelids along with the outworn charge of sounding like a “conspiracy theorist“. The current electoral cycle seems to be changing that, so I will trust that now is the right time to convey some ideas I’ve been marinating regarding fascism in my US Homeland. The ruling plutocrats are clearly ferrying the ...
Washington: Cardinal George Pell, who is Vatican Prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy, told The Tablet, a Catholic newspaper on June 17, 2016, that: ““The Vatican is committed to transparency, international cooperation and the use of contemporary international standards in financial reporting.”
Cardinal Pell further praised Jean Baptiste de Franssu, the director of the Vatican Bank as one who had done “an excellent clean out job.”
Pell further stated: “Pope Francis continues to insist that the financial reforms must continue.”
Nowhere in Pell’s message was there any mention of the Nazi linked Ustasha Treasury first identified by the US State department in ...
A project for Greater Albania – conspiracy or legitimate? According to a 2010 Gallup Balkan Monitor report, 83% of Albanians in Albania supported the idea of a Greater Albania, with 81% and 53% of Albanians in Kosovo and North Macedonia respectively supporting such an ambition.The ultimate goal? To have Kosovo and the Preševo Valley in Serbia, southern Montenegro, Epirus in Greece and western North Macedonia into a single Greater Albanian state. Although this may not be official policy of the Albanian Republic, it is ingrained into the Albanian mythos. The very idea of a Greater Albania has roots in the 1913 Treaty of London that left roughly 40% ...
Kosovo obtained part independence when America and many European nations gave the go ahead for the creation of this new nation. However, it is clear that things are not plain sailing because many other nations did not support this elitist adventure, therefore, the wider international community was ignored. Therefore, today we have a situation where some nations support this new state, however, the majority of nations in Africa, Asia, and South America, have not given their consent.
Also, the Russian Federation, Spain, and some other European nations, refuse to accept this American led adventure. Therefore, what does the future hold for Kosovo ...
Twelve years ago, March 24th, 1999, marks the commencement of NATO’s aerial bombardment of Yugoslavia. The bombings which lasted for almost three months, were followed by the military invasion (under a bogus UN mandate) and illegal occupation of the province of Kosovo.In the course of the last week, the so-called international community, backed by the UN Security Council has called for the bombing of Libya, a sovereign country, allegedly to protect the lives of civilians under the logo of “Responsibility to Protect”.The covert operations, the military strategies applied in Libya not to mention the process of media disinformation bears a canny ...
When at the 1878 Berlin Congress Serbia and Montenegro had to become recognized as sovereign states, the Muslim Albanian representatives tried to initiate the same for their own national state or wider autonomy within the Ottoman Empire which they considered as their own national state.They founded the (First) Prizren League in Metochia (the western portion of contemporary Kosovo). However, this Islamic initiative failed with Bismarck’s explicit rejection to speak about Albanian nationality as nonexistent at all in Europe at that time as they have been considered as the Turks. At the same time, the Albanian national movement Rilindja was initiated, ...
Professor David Ray Griffin is a tenacious person. He has written a number of carefully researched books that demonstrate the extraordinary shortcomings in the official account of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon and the subsequent anthrax attack. He has provided the mountains of evidence completely ignored by the US government’s account and the presstitute media.In his recently published latest book, Bush and Cheney: How They Ruined America and the World , Professor Griffin demonstrates how 9/11 was used by the Zionist Neoconservatives, the Cheney/Bush regime, and the military/security complex with the complicity of Congress and ...
The superhighway to disaster is already being paved.From Donald Trump’s first days in office, news of the damage to America’s international stature has come hard and fast. As if guided by some malign design, the new president seemed to identify the key pillars that have supported U.S. global power for the past 70 years and set out to topple each of them in turn. By degrading NATO, alienating Asian allies, cancelling trade treaties, and slashing critical scientific research, the Trump White House is already in the process of demolishing the delicately balanced architecture that has sustained Washington’s world leadership since ...
It is true that every story about the Balkan Peninsula begins with the ancient Illyrians. Historians believe that these Indo-European people were one of the largest European populations to inhabit the western portion of the Balkans from the coasts of the Ionian Sea and the Adriatic Sea to the Alps about 1000 B.C. Their eastern neighbours were also Indo-European peoples – the Thracians. The demarcation line between their settlements and their cultural and political influence was the Morava river in present-day Serbia (in Latin Margus, located in the Roman province of Moesia Superior) and the Vardar river in present-day FYR ...
We are witnessing a presidential election of epic farce. The Republican Party nominates the caricature of a tinpot dictator. The Democratic National Committee is a caricature too, of comic opera: exposed in collusion with a favored candidate it anoints a felon, shown to be such but unindicted.We are witnessing the collapse of democratic presidential politics. It is a derelict process, complex, absurdly long, insanely expensive, tedious, inconsistent and now chaotic.Professional football is a public extravaganza, its six-month season culminating in the tangible climax of the Superbowl. It is dwarfed in spectacle however by the same suspense and dramatic finale of ...
