Islamic Jew-hatred coming from the USA empowered Muslims in Bosnia. More of the poisonous fruit we can expect to yield from that evil war that the US (Clinton) with NATO declared against the Christians. We supported jihad and paved the way for an Islamic state in the heart of Europe.
The Balkan Connection of the Ottoman Flotilla Julia Gorin
As seen below, condemnation of the Israeli response to the flotilla war provocation has come from the Bosnian-Muslim third of the tripartite Bosnian presidency — not from the Croatian or Serbian thirds. And a negative foreign ministry statement has come from Albania.
So two of the Balkans’ supposedly Islam-deficient Muslim states are more bothered by the defensive Israeli raid than the neighboring Christian nations. Why Albania and Muslim Bosnia rather than Serbia, Croatia or Montenegro? Could it have anything to do with the Muslim solidarity that prevails regardless of how poorly Islam may be practiced by the Muslim majorities in these countries?
This isn’t to say that the rest of Europe, eastern and western, isn’t going to join in the condemnation soon enough (naturally, Greece has already started, given its perpetual annoyance with the Jewish state anyway), but it’s worth noting the reflexive concern by the Bosnian Muslim and Albanian side. The non-country of Kosovo, meanwhile, did not issue any criticisms, as it’s still hoping for an Israeli recognition. For this reason too the Albanian statement was very cautiously worded.
Several hundred people, mostly Turks and Palestinians, gathered in front of the Bosnian parliament building in Sarajevo on Monday to protest Israel’s raid on a Gaza-bound peace flotilla in which at least nine peace activists were killed.
The Bosniak (Bosnian Muslim) member of Bosnia’s tripartite presidency also condemned the Israeli operation against the peace activists.
In a statement issued by his office, Silajdzic called for an “urgent investigation of the Israeli attack”.
“All those who were involved or who ordered this crime must be held accountable in line with international humanitarian law,” Silajdzic said in the statement.
He called on Israel to “unconditionally and urgently allow the free flow of humanitarian aid, people and goods” in and out of Gaza.
Albania’s Foreign Ministry issued a statement following the incident, noting that it was following the latest developments and adding: “the MFA considers this attack to be unnecessary and calls on the Israeli authorities to investigate immediately with regards to this case, which has strained regional stability and more.”
The attack in international waters off the coast of Gaza drew condemnations from Turkey, France and the United Nations. Responding to the attack, Greece suspended a military exercise with Israel and postponed a visit by Israel’s air force chief.
More ominously, among the “protesters” seeking a confrontation with Israel by penetrating the Gaza blockade using the flotilla — and chanting an Islamic battle cry invoking the killing of Jews — were a Bosnian citizen of Syrian birth, and four other Balkan Muslims. As Mickey Bozinovich at Serbianna.com blogged:
During the raid on the Muslim terror ship, Israeli commandos have arrested a Bosnian Muslim national. His name is Yasser Mohamad Sabbagh and he is of the Syrian origin…Four additional Balkan Muslims were nabbed by the Israelis and presumably all of them are ethnic Albanian Muslims. One is from Kosovo and the 3 others are from Macedonia where Wahhabism is rampant among the Albanian Muslims.
The Kosovo Albanian arrested by Israel is Ramiqi Fuad President of Muslim Forum of Kosova and he said to Sabbagh [via imperfect Google translation]: “I was at this time stated the common suffering that we went during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Kosovo war. Knowing the situation in Palestine, the least we can contribute is that they carry a part of faith in the freedom that we achieved after long years, and will also one day have.”
