Kosovo: Orthodox Christians fear to walk because of America and Albanian nationalism

In history books you can read about the Armenian genocide where Armenian Christians, Greek Orthodox Christians, Assyrian Christians, and other minorities, were massacred in the millions in 1915 and the following years. They were slaughtered because of Turkish nationalism and religious hatred but of course to say this openly in modern day Turkey is still dangerous.

Throughout history ethnic groups and religious groups have suffered because of countless factors but sadly in the modern period the same situation applies for many religious and ethnic groups. Alas, just like the abandoned Armenians and other minorities, today in Kosovo and Iraq all minorities face religious persecution and ethnic hatred despite international agencies being on the ground.

Indeed, the plight of Christian minorities and other minorities in Kosovo and Iraq shows how indifferent the so-called Western world is towards Christian minorities and other faiths which fail to make headlines. More alarming, is that much of the mass media was quick to fall into “the anti-Serb trap” without a care about history or the reality on the ground. Therefore, in modern day Serbia minorities have freedom of movement throughout the land but in Kosovo the Serbian Orthodox Christian minority, Gypsies, and others, don’t have freedom to travel openly.

Nations like Indonesia, Nigeria, the former Yugoslavia, and countless other multi-ethnic and multi-religious countries, are extremely delicate and central forces when under threat face serious bloodletting if no breathing space can quell a revolt. However, the recognition of independent nations in the former Yugoslavia gave no breathing space and the history of World War Two whereby Croatian fascism, Muslim Nazi Units, Albanian fascist support of Germany and Italy, and a host of other complex factors, wasn’t taken into consideration. Instead, communities with long and bitter memories were meant to accept becoming minorities in nations they feared.

Irrespective of which side was right or wrong it is clear that “a covert and dirty war” was unleashed by America, the United Kingdom, Albanian nationalists, and Islamists who were waiting in the wings. Also, a compliant press was mainly guaranteed in a post-Western Christian world whereby it is easy to hate and be biased against this faith. Therefore, America played all “the right cards” and suddenly the Kosovo Liberation Army became a major fighting force from virtually zilch and with British treachery “the deal was done.”

This meant that Kosovo which once was nearly 100% Orthodox Christian over 800 years ago before the invading Turks and their enslavement and dhimmitude policies entered the equation; now became 12% after countless tragedies befell this community. This applies to a combined force of Islamization, dhimmitude, consequences of two world wars, and communist policies which enabled Albanianization to take root.

Strangely, in all this time the Serbians never desired a military solution to regaining complete control of Kosovo whereby other ethnic groups would be expelled. However, when the KLA began to terrorize the Serbian community, other minorities, and moderate Albanians who were opposed; then a full scale crisis was about to be unleashed. Of course, this full-scale crisis had already been planned in Washington and London, therefore, the more the KLA killed and attacked then this was welcoming news because America and the United Kingdom new that reprisals would take place on the Serbian side.

Nationalist forces in Serbia fell into the trap and the media was just waiting. Ironically, when two million mainly African Christians and Animists in Sudan had been slaughtered in Sudan by Arab Islamist forces, the media on a whole and the West did very little. Once more, the African Christians were both “too black” and “too Christian” to attract intervention.

Therefore, Bill Clinton, a leader who enabled thousands of international Islamic terrorists into Bosnia to kill and behead Orthodox Christians, was at his “manipulation of language” best once more by implying that 100,000 Albanians may have been killed. Of course, the final death total at most is around 90 per cent less from pro-Clinton numbers given (this applies to all ethnic groups) and to others the final figures are between 92% less to 97% less. More important, this death total is only this high because of the actions of NATO and supporting KLA terrorism. This meant that the death total when Bill Clinton stated this was extremely low and clearly only after the bombing of Serbia did the situation increase rapidly.

However, why is it that several million deaths of African Christians and Animists were allowed in Sudan by several Arab Islamic regimes which were intent on Arabization and Islamization? After all, when intervention was being talked about in Kosovo the death total was very little. Therefore, why did these deaths lead to intervention in Kosovo and not in Sudan where at least two million Africans had been slaughtered?

Once the war engulfed Kosovo properly after NATO intervention and the arming of the KLA by utilizing Albania and other ratlines – then massacres happened on all sides but the indiscriminate use of NATO bombing can be seen by the final death figures. After all, the NATO war machine suffered no direct losses because of its power to bomb from the sky and arming the KLA.

Over one decade later and still Serbians and Gypsies, including children from both communities, can’t walk freely in Kosovo and the Serbian Orthodox Church can’t baptize freely in Kosovo. However, does this concern America and the European Union from forcing the hand of Serbia to abandon all ties with “their Jerusalem?”

Of course not, therefore, despite countless documents linking the KLA and politicians to “narcotic ratlines” and the “organ scandal,” nothing changes and ethnic discrimination is maintained. Therefore, in modern Europe you have Orthodox Christian churches being protected by outside military forces and ethnic minorities being forced into isolated ghettoes.

In another article by Modern Tokyo Times an article by Paul Lewis was highlighted (published in The Guardian which is a British newspaper). Paul Lewis states that “Kosovo’s prime minister is the head of a “mafia-like” Albanian group responsible for smuggling weapons, drugs and human organs through Eastern Europe, according to a Council of Europe inquiry report on organized crime.”

“The report of the two-year inquiry, which cites FBI and other intelligence sources, has been obtained by the Guardian. It names Thaçi as having over the last decade exerted “violent control” over the heroin trade. Figures from Thaçi’s inner circle are also accused of taking captives across the border into Albania after the war, where a number of Serbs are said to have been murdered for their kidneys, which were sold on the black market.”

“The report paints a picture in which ex-KLA commanders have played a crucial role in the region’s criminal activity. It says: “In confidential reports spanning more than a decade, agencies dedicated to combating drug smuggling in at least five countries have named Hashim Thaçi and other members of his Drenica group as having exerted violent control over the trade in heroin and other narcotics.”

The outcome of “the dirty war” is that minorities face a bleak future and in percentage terms their percentage is falling because of no freedom in Kosovo. The majority population of Albanians therefore is continuing to install fear and killing people for organs doesn’t even shame policy makers in Washington and London.

Innocent Serbian and Gypsy families are still being victimized and marginalized and too little is being done to protect both communities. Clearly, America and others know that time is on their side and if the entire de-Orthodox Christianization of Kosovo is accomplished in the future because of all minority communities abandoning all hope – then this will be music to the ears of Washington.

The Turks could never destroy the “spirit and soul” of the Orthodox Christian community in Kosovo despite enslavement of young Christian boys being converted to Islam, dhimmitude, wars, heavy taxation, and other factors. Fascism couldn’t destroy this community. However, the American political leadership and British political leadership laid down the foundations of the destruction of this embattled community.

It is essential that all non-Albanian minorities are supported in Kosovo and the same applies to moderate forces within the Kosovo Albanian community who fear the power mechanisms and ratlines of the KLA clique.
