Blogmocracy in action!

Under the radar
While we are all worrying about Kagan confirmation hearings, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the near-worldwide economic collapse, the Iranian and North Korean nuclear threats, and the Gulf oil leak, the cesspool of jihadism in the Balkans goes nearly unnoticed. It stays off the radar screen, not only in the socialist mainstream media, but also in outlets such as Fox News and most of the conservative blogosphere. And when it is mentioned, likelier than not, Serbs are blamed for violence committed by their jihadi enemies.
Why is this important?
It’s important because, for over a decade, the US and its NATO allies have devoted tremendous effort to helping the Bosnian and Kosovar Muslims to set up jihadi strongholds in the Balkans. The Balkans jihadis are quite simply the local branches of al Qaeda in Europe. At the same time, we claim to be fighting al Qaeda and its affiliates in Iraq and Afghanistan.
If you try to fight on both sides of the same war, only one things is certain: you will surely lose. And so we will. This foreign policy is not merely evil, it is completely insane. But don’t expect the media to tell you this, considering that the media played such a key role in getting the US into this untenable position to begin with. Were the mainstream media, or for that matter, anybody in the US or NATO military or governments, to admit the truth about what has been going on in the Balkans, widespread shock and disbelief would ensue. It’s anybody’s guess what would happen next.
The Muslim-controlled parts of the Balkans form a stronghold from which jihadis can easily smuggle drugs, weapons, money, propaganda, and people into the rest of Europe, and from there to the US and just about anywhere else.
See for yourself:
- Five Employees of Islamic Charity Arrested in Kosovo on Terrorism Charges
Kosovo police arrested five members of an Islamic humanitarian organization suspected of “criminal activities.”
The five suspects were associated with a humanitarian organisation called Iskrenost (Sincerity).
The arrests took place late on Friday in the southwest city of Prizren in an operation in which 120 police officers were deployed. Berisa said police confiscated a large quantity of weapons during the operation, including automatic rifles, pistols, ammunition and uniforms.
Since the Bosnian war, Jihadists have often operated under the guise of humanitarian organizations from Islamic countries and several such charities have been banned in Bosnia. …
- Bosnia: Jihadists bomb police station; analysts state the obvious and warn of more to come
As is so often the case with the Balkans, analysts are quick to attribute the problem of jihadist activity to the influence of “Wahhabism,” though without accounting for why the Wahhabists’ teachings resonate so readily with what we were told were peaceful, secularized, tolerant Muslims. To suppose otherwise, of course, raises the specter of there being something about Islam, even among our modern, moderate “friends and allies” that is not of the Wahhabists’ invention, but nonetheless generates acts like the one described below.
- Albanian’s January Killing Spree in Finland Originally Reported in England as done by “Kosovo Serb”
… However, I am going to post about the January killing spree in Finland, because I remembered that the source who sent it to me wrote the following: “I noticed one of the British channels first announced that the killer was a ‘SERB KOSOVAN’ when the news just started to unfold.” …
- British News: the “Serb Kosovans” Ibrahim and Islam Shkupolli
… In a post last week about an Albanian mass killer at a Finnish shopping mall, I mentioned that a British news channel (whose identity I’m trying to ascertain) referred to the perpetrator as a “Serb Kosovan.” Thanks to my source on this, “Serbstvo,” we have the actual video of the reporter saying this. Not the anchorwoman, but the male reporter in the field (whose name I could only discern as Roger Thomas) made the “mistake” even though the shooter’s name is clearly Ibrahim Shkupolli. Thomas isn’t even tipped off by the very next frame of his package after his mis-identification, which goes to a Shkupolli cousin in Kosovo, whose first name is “Islam.” …
- Bosnians Always Impugn Themselves
In February there was a major police action in the notorious radical stronghold of Gornja Maoca. Located at the juncture of Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia, and near a major roadway, this town briefly became a focus for investigators immediately after 9/11, and has come up repeatedly as a problem since. (Including as the nexus of the planned rocket attack on world leaders at Pope John Paul II’s 2005 funeral, which naturally went virtually unreported.) Here is what happened in February:
- U.S. Tries to Restore Serbian Sovereignty ofer U.S.-supported “Independent” Kosovo
Did anyone else catch this gem last week from North Carolina’s WRAL news site:
Raleigh, N.C. — A European judge has ruled that a man arrested in Kosovo last week will not be extradited to the U.S. to face charges that he aided a suspected terrorism ring in the Triangle.
Bajram Asllani, 29, an ethnic Albanian and native of Mitrovic[a], Kosovo, was convicted of terrorism in Serbia and was under surveillance in his home country when he was arrested Thursday following an extradition request from the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. He faces charges of providing material support to terrorists and conspiracy to kill, kidnap, maim or injure persons.
Judge Agnieszka Kolowiecka-Milar of the European Union Rule of Law Mission denied the extradition request, ruling that Kosovo doesn’t have an extradition treaty with the U.S., according to Bulgaria-based FAN TV. Prosecutors were relying on a 2001 agreement between the U.S. and Serbia, but Kosovo has since declared its independence and isn’t bound by that agreement, the judge ruled.
