After a Trojan Horse “revolution” took over Serbia in 2000, the succession of governments in Belgrade have only occasionally attempted to pursue Serbia’s own interests. Even such efforts have been the proverbial day late and a dollar short. More often, though, the Belgrade government prostrated itself before the Empire, hoping to end the torment by fulfilling the never-ending series of demands. Not surprisingly, the more they submitted, the more they’ve been tormented. But since it was the people paying the price, not the politicians, the debasement has continued.
BELGRADE – Irinej, Patriarch of the Serbian Orthodox Church said on Tuesday that Serbia “lacks an emperor or king”, according to Serbian media yesterday.
“Serbia lacks an emperor or king, or some kind of parliamentary monarchy where a king could act as the unifier of the nation,” the Patriarch said to reporters, after the liturgy at Church of St. Andrew the First-Called at the Royal Complex in Dedinje to mark the transfer of the remains of King Peter II Karadjordjevic to Serbia from the United States.
He emphasized that Serbia had made all its achievements with a king and that a parliamentary monarchy would be beneficial for Serbia.
The Patriarch said that the transfer of the remains of King Peter II Karadjordjevic was major event that only 10 years ago no one would have believed.
After the Second World War Peter II Karadjordjevic was declared a traitor and stripped of his properties, including the court complex in Dedinje, in which Josip Broz moved immediately after the liberation of Belgrade in October 1944 year.
