Christian Serbs are on the front lines, and they barely have food or shoes.
NATO troops have been shooting at Serbs over the past three months. (Yes, we're talking about the US National Guard (!) In conjunction, of course, with troops from Germany, Austria, Hungary, Slovenia, and Croatia—the gang’s all here, folks—just about covers the WWII Axis.)
Why have our troops been shooting at our discarded ally? Because the Serbs are resisting U.S.-enforced subjugation under Albanian-Muslim rule. Since July, Serbs have been building barricades at the EU-administered border crossings after Kosovo Prime Minister/Organ-Trafficker Thaci suddenly usurped them (with a wink and a nod from Washington) — and NATO helped out by driving and then helicoptering in Albanian officials to these crossings in the north. The north (northern Mitrovica) is the last safe part of Kosovo to be Serb, and it’s trying to remain part of Serbia as it always has been, and as per UNSCR1244.
A summary of what’s been happening, from when things escalated in September, is here at Julia Gorin's website.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
In our first round of fundraising to help Serbs in Kosovo this October, we've raised $800, from about 20 donors. These funds are now utilized to help Serbian families in Northern Kosovo.
This is a plea to all of you to take a moment and help the second round of our fundraising effort. You may note which beneficiary you would specifically like to support or you may leave it for the funds to be equally divided to help the following:
Village of Miloševo near Obilić (located 7miles from Priština). Miloševo is an enclave of 30 residents and few homes, inhabited largely by children and elders. The funds raised will be used to purchase food (flour, salt, oil, rice), school supplies, firewood, and medicine.
Schools and children of Northern Kosovo whose families continue to fearlessly defend Serbian homes, as well as freedom and history of all Serbs. The raised funds will be used for food, school supplies, and firewood.
Purchase modest Christmas gifts for Serbian children in Kosovo, consisting of essential school supplies.
All raised funds are sent via verified and trusted channels. The reports, receipts, and photo documentation of purchases made with these funds will be provided back to our church.
To those who have already given, thank you for your generosity!
Please be generous and please do not delay. You help is needed now.
While we wait others act. Note that all donations are tax-deductible.
