The Serbs and Jews have alot in common. Both people lost their homelands and recovered it. Both suffered at the hands of the Nazis in Concentration camps. In WWII Serbian Chetniks rescued Jews and in fact, many of the Chetnik commanders where Serbian Jews. Both nations have been demonized by the Progressive-Islamic alliance. During the Balkan Wars, Many American Jewish Organizations, who are really Progressives supported the Islamic side of the conflict. However, Many Israelis supported the Serbs. Thus, Serbs don’t have any ill will towards Jews in general, they just despise Leftist American Jews who supported the Jihadists. In fact, most Serbs relate with Jews, due to shared history. Israel and Serbia are natural allies.
Imagine a country with a long and proud history that is regularly vilified by the international press. It faces mounting pressure to concede its ancient heartland and turn its back on a central part of its cultural and spiritual heritage.
Surrounded by numerous foes, in a region where ancient hatreds run deep, this diminutive but intrepid people perseveres, standing firm on principle rather than selling out its age-old patrimony.
As familiar as this reality may sound to our Israeli ears, there is a country in the heart of Europe which would find it no less resonant: Serbia.
And given the close ties that existed between Serbs and Jews throughout much of the past thousand years, it behooves Israel and world Jewry to forge closer bonds with Belgrade.
Of course, for much of the past two decades, Serbia was viewed by many Jews as a pariah because of the Balkan wars that followed the break-up of Yugoslavia.
Allegations of war crimes committed in Bosnia stirred up public opinion in America and the West, tarnishing the image of the Serbs and setting the stage for the subsequent confrontation over the status of Kosovo.
As a result, the age-old Serbian-Jewish relationship was nearly torn asunder, as many American-Jewish organizations and spokesmen chose to side with the Bosnians and the Kosovars in their struggle against the Serbs.
The Serbs understand the evils of Islam better than most. If there is one nation in Europe that will never bow to Islam, its Serbia. Just mention the names Arkan, The Tigers and Scorpian Brigade to anyone in the Muslim world and you will see the fear in their eyes.
