Bosnia, Cyprus and Kosovo: America and Islamism in the Balkans

Bosnia, Cyprus and Kosovo: America and Islamism in the Balkans

Murad Makhmudov and Lee Jay Walker

Modern Tokyo Times

The conflicts that engulfed the former Yugoslavia still remain unresolved in the political arena and open to Western political shenanigans and covert meddling from Turkey and Saudi Arabia in Bosnia and Kosovo.  Orthodox Christianity faces many attacks and only a naïve individual would claim that America and the hands of Turkey and Saudi Arabia are clean.

America and other Western nations did little to stop Turkey invading Cyprus in 1974 and creating a de-facto nation and altering the demographics of northern Cyprus and using this area for military purposes.

Irrespective of the rights and wrongs of Cyprus you have no vindication of allowing a foreign army to invade another nation and then altering the ethnic and religious nature of the society that was invaded. However, the response by America to this Turkish and Islamic invasion was not only minimal but it clearly wasn’t important enough to the elites who pull the strings.

The invasion was both nationalist in nature and religious because what is left of Orthodox Christianity in northern Cyprus?  Also, are Orthodox Christian religious leaders free to convert and spread the faith in northern Cyprus?

In Turkey ethnicity and religion is fused together by the current leader of Turkey but anti-Christian themes run deep within the psyche irrespective of the leader.  After all, Turkey is the cradle of Orthodox Christianity and “old Byzantium” but this “cradle” was destroyed by constant Islamic invasions, Turkish migration and Islamization which enslaved and sold European Christian slaves for many centuries.

The one uniting theme of the 1915 Turkish genocide which is still denied by modern day Turkey is that millions of Armenian/Assyrian/Greek Christians were slaughtered and just like “old Byzantium” and modern day northern Cyprus and Kosovo – you have very few traces of Orthodox Christianity.

Therefore, in northern Cyprus, Kosovo and “old Byzantium” the virtual 100% Christian lands have become a graveyard because of past Islamic invasions and because of recent factors. These recent factors apply to the combined forces of America, Turkey, Islamic terrorists, Saudi Arabian funding, and other important areas alongside a distorted media which is anti-Orthodox Christian.

In many Western academia circles and according to Islamic apologists we are told that Islam means peace, but in truth it means “a piece of Christianity to swallow” and then to Islamize.  How do virtual 100% Christian areas become “Orthodox Christian graveyards?”

Shaul Shay in his book called Islamic Terror and the Balkans comments on page 191 that “The “Afghan model,” in which an “ad hoc” alliance was forged between radical Islam and the West with the aim of defeating a common adversary – the Soviet Union – has recurred in the arena of confrontation between Islam and its Slav (Orthodox Christian) enemies in the Balkans. In both conflicts in the Balkans – in Bosnia and with even more intensity in Kosovo – radical Islamic factors and Iran (which is defined as a state that supports terror) chose the same side as the United States and the NATO countries.”

On page 192 Shaul Shay comments that “The case of the Balkans proves that radical Islam has apparently succeeded in developing an effective model in which it harnesses the West to realize the objectives of Islam, as reflected in the “Afghan model” and subsequently in the “Balkan model.” With regards to the Afghan case, the West did not comprehend the implications of the success of radical Islam and failed to draw the necessary conclusions, forcing it to pay a heavy toll for its errors (the September 11 offensive).”

Therefore, when Serbian troops tried to stem the tide of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) in their own country, a massive Western media campaign went hand in hand with political elites in America and the United Kingdom. At the same time the Islamic terror networks were welcomed by policy makers in Washington because of past links in Afghanistan. This applies to the CIA, other agencies and government programs which trained radical Sunni Islamists to fight against the secular government of Najibullah in Afghanistan by establishing bases and allowing religious indoctrination in Pakistan.

The same America which didn’t lift a finger to help Orthodox Christians and force Turkey out of northern Cyprus, was involved in Kosovo in a flash and clearly the KLA and Islamic networks had a well-organized plan which had Washington stamped all over it.  Therefore, in three wars in the Balkans since the end of World War Two the United States supported the forces of Islam in Bosnia, northern Cyprus and Kosovo.

It mattered not if the Muslims were a minority or a majority or if an area was invaded by Turkish Muslim forces in northern Cyprus. Simply put, America sided with Islamic forces every time irrespective if outright Islamists like Alija Izetbegovic in Bosnia or with nationalist Muslims in Turkey.  The end result was the same and this applies to being anti-Orthodox Christian and implementing hypocritical policies. 

Alija Izetbegovic was a Bosnian Islamist who worked hand in hand with the Clinton administration. The same Izetbegovic welcomed international Islamic terrorists and clearly in his mind he had a long-term objective. Therefore, while the first phase was military he understood that the second phase was more potent and this applies to Islamization by stealth.

Izetbegovic commented that “… the Islamic movement should and must start taking over the power as soon as it is morally and numerically strong enough to not only overthrow the existing non-Islamic, but also to build up a new Islamic authority. …”

“… In one of the thesis for an Islamic order today we have stated that it is a natural function of the Islamic order to gather all Muslims and Muslim communities throughout the world into one. Under present conditions, this desire means a struggle for creating a great Islamic federation from Morocco to Indonesia, from the tropical Africa to the Central Asia. …”

The second phase is more important because it is long-lasting and based on stealth jihad and this applies to Islamization through the educational sector and other important areas.  Shaul Shay comments that “Money from Muslim states serves to fund the dissemination of Islam, mainly through educational frameworks. Some 100,000 Muslim Bosnian youths study in Islamic educational institutions today that advocate the extremist Wahhabi ideology.”

In modern day Kosovo the Orthodox Christian community is facing the brunt of Albanian nationalism and Kosovo Islamism. Ironically, for some Kosovo Albanians they also fear the growing rise of Kosovo Islamism because while Albanian nationalism and Kosovo Islamism share some common themes, it is clear that Kosovo Islamism hopes to swallow Albanian nationalism. Either way, the Orthodox Christian community is fighting for its survival in pockets of Kosovo because the “Orthodox Christian graveyard” is literal in many parts of modern day Kosovo and all in the name of democracy according to Bill Clinton and Tony Blair. 

The destruction of Orthodox Christian churches and protection of children by international armed forces from Kosovo Albanian extremists is an ongoing reality. This, and the organ scandal, doesn’t seem to alter anything because Serbian power is all but a distant memory. Therefore, a de-facto nation is being created literally on “the organs of innocents and narcotic trafficking alongside Islamic terrorist networks in Kosovo.”

Paul Lewis in an article published in The Guardian (British newspaper) on Dec 14th, 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.”

In another article published by Modern Tokyo Times it is commented that “The report is clearly damning and this applies to not only the PM of Kosovo, Hashim Thaci, but to all nations who have recognized Kosovo. This applies to breaking international law and making clear fabrications about the nature of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) and the reality of what was happening on the ground.”  

Paul Lewis continues also stated that “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.”

Therefore, the policies of Bill Clinton included the green light for thousands of Islamists to enter Bosnia and in time they would slit the throats of Orthodox Christians. Not content with this, he also supported the terrorist and criminal KLA in Kosovo who have been involved in organ trafficking and heroin alongside destroying Orthodox Christianity.

In an article published by Modern Tokyo Times called Bosnia and Clinton’s Radical Islamists it was stated that “Sky news has obtained clear and proper evidence of a major cover-up and footages of massacres against Serbian Christians.  According to the investigation and footages which were shown, it is abundantly clear that thousands of radical Islamists from all over the world were given a free reign in Bosnia.”

“This free-reign meant that innocent Serbian Christians were to meet terrible and disturbing deaths at the hands of radical Islamists who celebrated openly while cutting the heads off innocent civilians.  The same Islamic forces which unleashed September 11th and which stone people to death in order to create “year zero,” were welcomed openly by Clinton and by people within his administration.”

In another called The Forgotten Orthodox Christians of Bosnia and Kosovo it was mentioned that “Maybe one day the Serbian Orthodox Christian community in Bosnia will face the same fate which befell their co-religionists in Kosovo.  After all, Islamic nations and organizations are funding many Islamic institutions throughout the region and added to the higher Muslim birthrate and pro-American policies towards the Muslims of Bosnia and Kosovo then this could become a future reality.”

Turning back to northern Cyprus then it is clear that de-Orthodox Christianity is a reality and the same applies to the invasion by Turkey being tolerated for so long.  This is in stark contrast to America’s intervention in Kosovo and not only this, just look at the hypocrisy of NATO because why isn’t Turkey expelled for violating the sovereignty of Cyprus?

If anybody wants to deny the religious element of northern Cyprus then an article by the Washington Times called Religious artifacts in Cyprus in “great peril” should make you think again. The article highlights the destruction of 500 Orthodox Christian churches which have been pillaged, 133 monasteries desecrated, 15,000 religious paintings have disappeared, 77 churches turned into mosques, 28 converted into military hospitals/camps and 13 have been turned into barns.

The US administration went into a panic over one Koran which was burnt but the systematic destruction of Orthodox Christianity in northern Cyprus doesn’t enter the radar. This is because either allies of America are doing this, like Turkey, and because covert policies by past leaders including Clinton have given the “green light” to Islamists in the Balkans.

It is clear that America’s lack of concern for Orthodox Christianity in northern Cyprus was a clear indicator to events in Bosnia and Kosovo. Killing two million mainly African Christians and Animists in Sudan in the 1980s and early 1990s by Arab Islamists didn’t witness intervention.  Also, when Timorese Christians were being massacred by Indonesia this wasn’t deemed to be a crime at the time because America, the United Kingdom, and other nations, kept on selling military arms to Indonesia.

Iraqi Christians should have understood the reality of the Balkans because they have been left to defend themselves and unlike past secular law, they are now governed by Islamic Sharia law.  Not surprisingly approximately 50 per cent of all Iraqi Christians have fled and at no time was special protection given to them from the sword of radical Islam.

Therefore, de-Christianization in northern Cyprus was done by an ally of America, the ongoing de-Christianization of Kosovo and Iraq respectively is happening under the watch of international troops and so-called friendly governments in Kosovo and Iraq – and Saudi Arabia is intent on spreading Islam in Bosnia and Europe while not allowing one single Christian church in their own nation.

If history tells us anything then the de-Christianization of Kosovo is a constant theme of America’s anti-Orthodox Christian policies in the Balkans. Therefore, Izetbegovic’s pan-Islamic dream remains a possibility because of America’s collusion, Islamic terrorist networks, Saudi Arabian and Turkish funding of Islamic institutions and if all this fails – then other covert ways will be found.

Macedonia should take note because the gap between events in northern Cyprus and Bosnia is many years apart but pro-Muslim policies remained the same. The current status quo in Macedonia will be put under further strains in the future because of the demographic reality and the rise of Islamism in the Balkans.

Turkey and the Islamic and nationalist card

Turkey and the Islamic and nationalist card
 
LEE JAY WALKER
  
THE MODERN TOKYO TIMES

PM ERDOGAN OF TURKEY

The current Prime Minister of Turkey is playing the Islamic and nationalist card in order to boost his image.  Recep Tayyip Erdogan clearly knows how to garner public attention and Turkish nationalism is very potent in Turkey and others seek Islamization or a more overtly Islamic state.  Therefore, Israel is the usual “whipping” nation in the mainly Muslim world and Erdogan is appealing to the most common of all denominators.
  
After all, anti-Semitism or Israeli bashing, or a combination of both, is a common theme throughout many mainly Muslim nations and in Europe many media outlets are clearly pro-Palestinian.  Israel appears to be a “whipping boy” for people who are left-wing or supporters of the far-right, and this suits the Islamists because they can use this nation in order to ferment more hatred and to increase their respective power base.
  
Therefore, Erdogan will make the most of any opportunity in order to increase the power base of Islam in Turkey and he can also appeal to nationalists.  Erdogan commented in the past that “A Muslim can never commit genocide.”
  
If so, Erdogan should look back to 1915 because Muslims slaughtered at least 1.5 million Armenians, Assyrians, and Greek Orthodox Christians and of course how did Islam get to become 99% in modern day Turkey given the reality that this nation was once the bastion of Orthodox Christianity?
 
I negate to mention that Mohammed himself was responsible for the ethnic cleansing of Judaism in Arabia once his power base increased.  Also, I am sure that Assyrian Christians, Armenian Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, and Zoroastrians, and many others, would beg to differ. This also applies to African Christians and Animists in southern Sudan who witnessed the onslaught of Islamization and Arabization in more recent times.
 
Turning back to recent events then clearly Turkey is furious after at least nine people were killed on board the Turkish flagged Mavi Marmara.  At least eight were Turkish nationals and given the pro-Palestinian element and the way Israel is viewed, then clearly tensions and passions are running high.
 
Yet how would Turkey like it if Israeli nationals began to take aid to Kurds in Turkey?  Would Erdogan be happy about this situation and when we magnify this by the nature of Hamas then clearly this issue is complex.
 
Erdogan and many others also point out that the blockade on Gaza is cruel.  This is also ironic because Turkey have enforced a cruel blockade on Christian Armenia but of course this gets little media attention. 
 
The blockade of Armenia by Turkey began in 1993 and this is not only brutal but given the legacy of 1915 and the systematic genocide which took place then it is clearly beyond belief.   Also, unlike the situation for Israel, it is clear that Armenia have not used force or broken any laws against Turkey, however, Hamas often fires rockets at Israel and many terrorist attacks have taken place.
 
If we turn to Erdogan’s past then clearly he supported a greater role for Islam in modern day Turkey and in recent years he appears to be playing the “Muslim card” in order to boost himself and the political party he represents.

Past comments by Erdogan apply to the following:

“We will turn all our schools into İmam Hatips [religious schools]“—Cumhuriyet, Sept. 9, 1994
 
“Thank God Almighty, I am a servant of the Shari’a.”— Milliyet, Nov. 21, 1994
“I am the imam of Istanbul.”—Hürriyet, Jan. 8, 1995
 
“I support the proposal to inaugurate the parliament by reciting the Qur’an.”—Milliyet, Jan. 8, 1996
 
More recently it is clear that Erdogan will exploit any issue whereby he can claim that Muslims are being victimized and this suits his past agenda.  Therefore, he strongly rebuked China in 2009 after major disturbances in Xinjiang and he stated that “The event taking place in China is a kind of genocide.”
 
It is clear that the “victimization card” suits Erdogan and he will use Islam and nationalism, or a mixture of both in order to further his cause.  He also appears to be moving closer to nations which are more anti-Western. 
 
 For example, Soner Cagaptay (Washington Institute for Near East Policy) stated that “the AKP’s foreign policy has not promoted sympathy toward all Muslim states. Rather, the party has promoted solidarity with Islamist, anti-Western regimes (Qatar and Sudan, for example) while dismissing secular, pro-Western Muslim governments (Egypt, Jordan and Tunisia).”
 
 Erdogan also supports Ahmadinejad who is the leader of Iran because he congratulated Ahmadinejad despite major demonstrations in Iran after elections were held in 2009.  Robert Tait, a writer at The Guardian newspaper stated that “Erdogan’s partiality towards Ahmadinejad may surprise some in the west who see Turkey as a western-oriented democracy firmly grounded inside Nato…but will be less surprising to Erdogan’s secular domestic critics, who believe the prime minister’s heart lies in the east and have long suspected his Islamist-rooted Justice and Development party (AKP) government of plotting to transform Turkey into a religious state resembling Iran.”
 
It is clear that Erdogan uses emotive language and panders to both Turkish nationalism and Islamism when it suits him.  He also threatened to deport Armenians workers because he stated that “There are currently 170,000 Armenians living in our country. Only 70,000 of them are Turkish citizens, but we are tolerating the remaining 100,000.”  He further continued that “If necessary, I may have to tell these 100,000 to go back to their country because they are not my citizens. I don’t have to keep them in my country.”
 
Erdogan is certainly changing the direction of Turkey and his past agenda appears to be coming out into the open.  Secularism appears to be on the back foot and more worryingly is that he will use any event in order to boost himself and this applies to so-called “Muslim brotherhood” or Turkish nationalism.
 
Therefore, Erdogan who denies the 1915 Armenian genocide is the same person who uses the word genocide when it suits him.  It is the same person who talks with love and compassion towards Sudan despite the ongoing events in Darfur.  It is also the same person who decries the blockade of Gaza but who maintains the blockade against Armenia.
 
It is clear for all to see that Erdogan is hoping to use events in order to foster the notion of Muslim victimization and in the past he did state that he wanted an Islamic identity for Turkey.  Therefore, he will use the anti-Jewish card and decry Palestinian persecution but he will gloss over the anti-Kurdish nature of many parts of Turkish society and the military of Turkey will continue to target Kurds within Turkey and northern Iraq.

 The role of Islamic charities is a serious issue because many are based on spreading radical Islam via indoctrination or by supporting terrorism or political goals which should be way outside their remit.  Indeed, the war in Bosnia resembled the same patterns which flowed in Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Philippines, and other nations, whereby Islamic terrorism or radical ideology or a fusion of both were transported via Islamic charities.   

 It is vital that these channels are fully closed in Albania, Bosnia, Kosovo (Serbia), Macedonia, and other areas in the Balkans.  If not, then this region will further fragment and religious polarization and communal tensions will increase and radical Islam will continue to enhance its foothold in this part of Europe.

Added to this, it is clear that international Islamists will also try to use the Balkans in order to plan covert terrorist attacks and to enforce Sharia Islamic law on people who reside in majority held Muslim areas.  After all, for international Islamists it appears that time is on their side because the Muslim birthrate is much higher than the Christian birthrate in this part of Europe. 

Therefore, some Islamic charities are intent on installing mass propaganda, indoctrination, a sense of victimization, and the need to transform more moderate Muslims into “true Muslims” via the Wahhabi branch of Sunni Islam. 

In truth, this is not only happening in the Balkans because the same struggles and methods are happening in the United Kingdom and a host of other nations.  For example in my article called the USA and the Internal Islamic Threat’ I quote B. Raman (Additional Secretary (retd), Cabinet Secretariat, Govt. of India, New Delhi) who states that “For the last fifteen years, there has been a conflict between the Deobandis and the Barelvis for the control of the mosques and their funds not only in Pakistan, but also in the UK. Previously, the Barelvis used to control the mosques in the UK frequented by immigrants from the sub-continent, but they have since been driven out by the Deobandis and Wahabis. This was the starting point for the radicalization of the Pakistani-origin Muslims in the UK and in the other countries of West Europe. The ISI (Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence) has been supporting the Sipah-e-Sahaba and the LEJ in Pakistan as well as in West Europe.”

I also point out that “….the Muslim community in the UK in the 1960s and 1970s is very different to elements within the Muslim community today.”  However, more alarming for the Balkans is that the Muslim minority in Bosnia (largest single group now but not a majority) and Macedonia will in time become a majority.  Therefore, what happens over the following decades will pave the way ahead for either a confrontational region or where accommodation can be met.

If we look at past events in Kosovo and Turkey then it is clear that these mainly Christian areas of the Balkans became Islamized because of war, ethnic cleansing, persecution, dhimmitude, slavery, forced conversions, jizya, indoctrination, discrimination in law, and so forth. 

Added to this, is the reality that Islam is an ideology and religion which is fused together and non-Muslims who have lived under Islamic Sharia law have all faced only one outcome.  This outcome is the dwindling of their religious flock or like in Turkey it culminated in the Armenian/Assyrian/Greek genocide of 1915 which witnessed the deaths of millions of Christians.

The Orthodox Christians of the Balkans and Hindus of the Indian subcontinent only survived because of their huge numbers but major Islamic inroads were achieved.  For example in Albania, Bangladesh, Kosovo, and Pakistan, you have Muslim majorities after past Islamic invasions and you have significant minorities in Bulgaria, Bosnia, Cyprus, Macedonia, and Montenegro. 

It is also clear that Islam did not modernize society; on the contrary, it merely created stagnation and religious bigotry on a grand scale.  Therefore, today you have major religious persecution of Christians, Hindus, and Sikhs, in Pakistan and in Bangladesh you have to add on the persecution of Buddhists and other minorities in the Chittagong Hill Tracts.

India may not be perfect and religious and ethnic tensions also erupt from time to time, however, India is a flourishing democracy and all religions have freedom and equality.  Also, the government of India supports and protects the citizens of this nation by a legal system which is equal to all religious members.   

However, Islamic Sharia law is based on the supremacy of Islam over all other faith groups and past history and modern history tells us about mass persecution.  After all, in modern day Saudi Arabia they will not allow one single Christian church or Buddhist place of worship and conversion from Islam is deemed punishable by death.

Indeed, it is Saudi Arabia and other Islamic nations which are causing mayhem today in the Balkans because they desire to spread radical Islam.  Therefore, turning back to the role of charities we should take heed of what was stated by Vojin Joksimovich in his book called ‘The Revenge of The Prophet.’

Vojin Joksimovich highlights this in chapter five because he focuses on the role of Islamic charities. This applies to terrorism, indoctrination and the goal of creating an Islamic state in Bosnia and for others, then much further.  On page 161 of ‘The Revenge of The Prophet’ the author Vojin Joksimovich informs us that the Third World Relief Agency (TWRA) stated that “Bosnia must become a Muslim state eventually, for if that did not happen, then the whole war would be senseless and would have been fought for nothing – concluded in 1994 Elfatih Ali Hasanejin (Elfatih Hassanein), the head of the organization the TWRA”  (Miroslav Toholj, p.81)

It is clear, therefore, that many Islamic charities are not like Christian Aid, for example, instead they are directly involved in either terrorist networks or Islamization or a mixture of both, depending on the given charity.

Vojin Joksimovich also highlights this by stating that “There was a close partnership between the Islamist network in the U.S. and the one in Bosnia.  Emerson, in his testimony to the U.S. Congress, pointed out the entire spectrum of radical groups from the Middle East has been replicated in the U.S. (Steven Emerson, 1998) Page 151

“Emerson cited Oliver Revell, former Associate FBI Deputy Director: The U.S. is the most preferred and easiest place in the world for radical Islamic groups to set up their headquarters to wage war in their homelands, destabilize and attack American allies and ultimately move against the U.S. itself”  (ibid.) Page 151

Vojin Joksimovich adds that “Much of this has changed since 9/11 and the passage of the Patriot Act.  However, with the new American administration of President Obama reaching out to the so-called Islamic world then maybe America “is closing its eyes again” because even the usage of ‘Islamic terrorism’ is now on the back burner and instead it is appeasement time once more.

John Pomfret, Washington Post Foreign Service, wrote an article called ‘Bosnia’s Muslims Dodged Embargo’ (Sunday, September 22, 1996; Page A01).  He stated that Last September, European police backed by anti-terrorist squads raided the office here of a seemingly obscure organization, the Third World Relief Agency, headed by a one-time Sudanese diplomat named Elfatih Hassanein.”

“Since then, poring over several van loads of documents, they have pieced together one of the untold stories of the Bosnian war: how Bosnia’s Muslim-led government evaded a United Nations arms embargo and purchased hundreds of millions of dollars worth of black-market weapons.”

“In the documents and in the bank accounts of the Third World Relief Agency, Austrian investigators have tracked $350 million they say flowed from Muslim governments and radical Islamic movements to Bosnia. At least half was used to purchase weapons illegally and smuggle them to the Bosnian government army, according to Western intelligence estimates.”

This article highlights the linkage between so-called Islamic charities and the reality of what was really happening.  This applies to linkages between the TWRA, elements within the Bosnian Muslim leadership including Alija Izetbegovic, Osama Bin Laden, Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, and a host of other major terrorists and nations which were either friends or foe of America. 

The article also highlights the role of Bill Clinton and his role in allowing these terrorist networks to move freely despite many massacres against innocent Christians and in the knowledge of what Islamic terrorism meant.

John Pomfret continues by stating that“The agency took funds and support for Bosnia from wherever it could find it, and the bulk of the cash originated in the Middle East: Iran was a big contributor, as was Sudan, which like Iran is on the U.S. State Department’s watch-list of countries that support terrorism. Saudi Arabia was the largest contributor, according to banking officials and intelligence sources, and donations also came from pro-Western countries like Pakistan, Turkey, Brunei and Malaysia.”

“But militants in the terrorist underworld are also believed to have used the relief agency to get money to the Bosnian government, including the wealthy Saudi Arabian émigré Osama Bin Laden, a suspected sponsor of militant Islamic groups around the Middle East. Bin Laden, a resident of Sudan until last year, is reportedly now in Afghanistan, where he has issued statements calling for attacks on U.S. forces in the Persian Gulf.”

“Investigators say the agency also had ties to Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, a radical Egyptian cleric who was convicted of planning several terrorist bombings in New York and is linked to the group that carried out the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993. Intelligence agencies say they have tapes of telephone calls by Rahman to the agency’s office, during which he discussed its commitment to sell the sheik’s videotapes and sermons in mosques around Europe.”

“Hassanein, identified by Western sources as a member of Sudan’s ruling National Islamic Front, built his arms smuggling operation with Islamic activists from Bosnia who, like him, had ties to Izetbegovic, the Bosnian president. Several of these men now hold senior positions in the Bosnian government and, according to U.S. officials, they form the core of a radical Islamic movement that has resisted U.S. attempts to exert influence over the army and security services.”

The CIA also states that prominent Islamic charities were involved in terrorism because the report which was given to the State Department (1/1996) states that “……of more than 50 Islamic nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in existence, “available information indicates that approximately one-third… support terrorist groups or employ individuals who are suspected of having terrorist connections.” The report notes that most of the offices of NGOs active in Bosnia are located in Zagreb, Sarajevo, Zenica, and Tuzla. There are coordination councils there organizing the work of the charity fronts.”

“The report notes that some charities may be “backed by powerful interest groups,” including governments. “We continue to have evidence that even high ranking members of the collecting or monitoring agencies in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Pakistan – such as the Saudi High Commission – are involved in illicit activities, including support for terrorists.” The Wall Street Journal will later comment, “Disclosure of the report may raise new questions about whether enough was done to cut off support for terrorism before the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001… and about possible involvement in terrorism by Saudi Arabian officials.” (Central Intelligence Agency, 1/1996; Wall Street Journal, 5/9/2003)

Moving back to recent times in the Balkans it is clear that many radical Islamic organizations are intent on spreading radical Islam and charity organizations must be investigated closely and the same applies to educational institutions.  After all, radical Islamists are good at spreading their own version of Islam and if these money channels are not closed down and monitored correctly then another southern Thailand or Pakistan may develop within Europe?

Returning back to Vojin Joksimovich he states that “Bosnia established a successful model for embattled countries around the world: organizing, arming, and funding mujahideen units, skimming money from humanitarian charities, linking up with crime bosses including narco-terrorists, etc.  Islamism both produces and profits from mayhem.  Albeit to a much lesser magnitude, the Bosnian model was replicated later on in Kosovo, Southern Serbia and Macedonia.  Al Qaeda and the Taliban found a route for the heroin trafficking from Afghanistan into Europe via the Balkans.”  Page 150

Overall, just like the rise of the Taliban and radical Islam in modern day southern Thailand and Pakistan, it is the role of the Islamic madrasas which must be eliminated and not merely contained.  The role of Islamic charities must also be tackled because many are a gateway to spreading radical Islam and if this “gateway” is not stopped and challenged, then alongside religious Islamic educational institutions which are sponsored by Saudi nationals and others; then the spread of radical Islam will not be defeated.

The wars in the former Yugoslavia were very different to the mass media versions.  After all, Alija Izetbegovic stated his dream of an Islamic state and fellow pan-Islamists did not care about Bosnia but they did care about the creation of an Islamic state and in time an Islamic Caliphate.

Turning back to a quote from the book by Vojin Joksimovich on Page 161“Bosnia must become a Muslim state eventually, for if that did not happen, then the whole war would be senseless and would have been fought for nothing – concluded in 1994 Elfatih Ali Hasanejin (Elfatih Hassanein).”

This statement is what Alija Izetbegovic believed in and fellow Islamists like Elfatih Hassanein and Osama Bin Laden shared the same agenda.  The battlefield may be silent now however for Islamists it is only just starting and now it is the turn for other networks to Islamize Bosnia and the Balkans.
