A little-known controversy that is slowly coming to light

Julia Gorin has written this article for the Front Page Magazine:

It is somewhat pathetic that even after 9/11, and even after a nearly four-year trial at the Hague disproving “genocide” and “ethnic cleansing” of Albanians in Kosovo (something the late reporter Daniel Pearl uncovered as early as 1999), the Jewish community still insists on being used to promote the agenda of the Albanian lobby that allied us with the al Qaeda-trained Kosovo Liberation Army in 1999.


Bosnia and Kosovo have been part of Islam’s current divide-and-conquer approach. Israeli Colonel Dr. Shaul Shay, author of Islamic Terror and the Balkans, explains the significance of the Kosovo, Albania and Bosnia region that Americans ignore: “In the eyes of the radical Islamic circles, the establishment of an independent Islamic territory including Bosnia, Kosovo and Albania along the Adriatic Coast, is one of the most prominent achievements of Islam since the siege of Vienna in 1683. Islamic penetration into Europe through the Balkans is one of the main achievements of Islam in the twentieth century.”

The Balkans also have given Islam its long-sought gateway into Europe, as the Kosovo connection to the terrorist attacks in Madrid and London demonstrate. (According to Defense & Foreign Affairs Daily and German intelligence, the explosives used in both bombings came from Kosovo, and just last week the Greek Kathimerini news service reported that the missile fired on the U.S. embassy in Athens a few weeks ago appears to have come from Kosovo.)

Albanians argue that their fight for Kosovo is not an Islamic movement but a national one. (DioGuardi himself is Christian.) Palestinians, of course, make the same claim. But the big picture is the same: jihad. The day that Kosovo becomes “Kosova” (the Muslims’, nationalists’, dhimmis’ and Mr. DioGuardi’s invented pronunciation) is the day we’ve lost a key battle in the war on terror.

Read it all.  I suspected this all to some extent from other articles I read, but this time I also followed the links.  Do that too.  Then I went to Julia's blog where she just posted (at that time) her comments on the Salt Lake City shooter.  I followed the links there too: this very graphic link and this one.  And then I was horrified.  Horrified by the strong possibility that our country supported the wrong side in the Yugoslavian wars.  Do follow the links that I copied from Julia Gorin's blog.  And note the links provided there.  They are not from some cookie sites similar to those denying the Holocaust.  The sources referenced there are quite reputable.  Plus, there is another reason I tend to believe this new version of events.  Remember the Jenin Massacre?  The one that never happened?  The same people that created that big lie that was fortunately exposed in time are the people talking about the Serb atrocities.  Their credibility is clearly suspect.  So, how is it possible that we took the wrong side in those wars?  I see 3 reasons.  First is that the Left is always willing to support the side that is not seen as Western.  Thus, in the conflict between between Christian Serbs and Muslim Bosnians the Left automatically took the Bosnian side.  The same was true in Kosovo.  In the conflict between Serbs and Croats the Serbs were perceived as stronger side.  The Left always takes the weaker side, regardless of who is right.  Finally, there was a reason from the Right: the Serbs were traditionally supported by the Russians.  There must have been some Cold War inertia in play.  Plus, Milosevic was a former Communist and genuine thug (according to my former co-workers from Serbia).

But the evidence that we took the wrong side in both Bosnian and Kosovo conflicts is very strong.  And that is very tragic.  It is now well documented that Al Qaeda is active in both Bosnia and Kosovo.  They always insert themselves into conflicts were Muslims are one of the sides, even if the original reason for the conflict is very secular.  Just follow the links.

I always thought that Israel will play the role of both Poland and Czechoslovakia in the current world war.  It turns out that there is another candidate for the role of Czechoslovakia: Serbia.  You see, unlike us, Jews, the Serbs did not suffer the Holocaust.  They were being killed by the Nazis and their Bosnian and Croat helpers because they interfered with the extermination of the Jews.  You know, like hiding the Jews, fighting the Nazis along with the other Allies.  (Note that in the link that I provided the claims about Bosnian Muslims participating in the Holocaust are disputed.  Nevertheless, the Bosnian SS division was organized with the help of Haj Amin Al-Husseini, Arafat's uncle).  So, Serbs did not suffer through a methodical extermination campaign.  Thus, it is easier to demonize them.  And now many people would rather keep them demonized, because otherwise it might become necessary to admit an embarrassing and tragic mistake.

How can a blogger like you come to conclusions that think tanks and other specialist would have taken in consideration before a whole army was sent there.. and I mean this from both sides; the European and American one!!!
You should know that Albania is amongst the very few countries in Europe that did not hand any Jews to the Germans during the WWII.
Also you should know not to trust Greek press, as it is extremely anti-Albanian. Aside from that you should know how to analyze a situation and dig deep into its roots.
You speak of Kosova as being part of a grand plan of Islamic expansion and "Al Qaeda" [sic]. That is the most pathetic idea you might have ever come up with.
Explosives in Spain etc from Kosova...Give me a break!!! Kosova does not have an Army yet, they are still under UN ...and you already started blaming explosions around Europe on Kosova..

I say you need to go and learn how to read before you start writing such non sense.

The Albanians of Kosova are gaining their independence, and filth like this written on this blog; like Cesar once said :" Is like flies on a running horse's behind"

You go and stop that horse if you want!

First of all, thank you for commenting.
Albania was not occupied by the Germans, but by the Italians. Italian authorities, including Mussolini's government in Italy did not cooperate with the Nazis in their genocide against the Jews. Occupied Albanians did not really have any say in the matter. As for the Bosnian Muslims, I did point out that the link I provided disputed the claims of Bosnian Muslims participating in the Holocaust. For the record, apparently the largest number of Jews killed in the former Yugoslavia was in Bulgarian-occupied Macedonia. That probably happened because Bulgarian government was trying to save Bulgarian Jews and had to make a deal with the Nazis. So, they gave up the Jews who were not Bulgarian citizens.
I did not talk about Kosovo being part of Islamic movement, Julia Gorin did. However, Al Qaeda always infiltrates any conflict were Muslims are on one of the sides, whether you like it or not. It does not matter that the original conflict is purely secular and that the nominal Muslims don't even practice their religion or don't practice Al Qaeda brand of Islam. It happened in Afghanistan, in Karabakh, in Chechnya and in Yugoslavia. The Albanian population in Kosovo might not even be able to change this now. As for Kosovo gaining independence, I don't particularly care one way or the other. But I do care about Al Qaeda gaining a bridgehead in Europe.
As for the experts, I don't take their word as gospel. They often have agendas. Common sense and multiple sources are my tools for discerning the truth. I am just trying my best to use them.
