Serbia: Terrorism expert receives death threat

AKI (Adnkronos International) Exclusive Interview

Belgrade, 21 Jan. (AKI) – Serbian terrorism expert, Darko Trifunovic, has cancelled a visit to Germany next week after claiming he received death threats from Muslim extremists.

Trifunovic, a professor at Belgrade University, said he has cancelled plans to attend the 11th European police congress in Berlin, after reporting death threats from alleged extremists in Bosnia.

Trifunovic, who has used the term “white Al-Qaeda”, to describe young European Muslims recruited by Islamic terrorist organisations, has been most outspoken on the activities of Islamic extremists in Bosnia and their links to Osama Bin Laden and al-Qaeda.

“I’m not panicky, but I do feel in danger,” Trifunovic told Adnkronos International (AKI) in an exclusive interview.

He said he had decided to avoid the Berlin congress on the urging of his friends and associates, after a threatening message was posted on a Bosnian extremist website, bosnjaci.net

Now this is interesting…

A group of 15 Wahabis was arrested in Serbia’s Sandzak region, with sizable Muslim population, in March last year and is currently standing trial before a Belgrade court. They have been accused of plotting terrorist activities, including an attack on the US embassy in Belgrade.

Trifunovic estimated that up to 40,000 Muslims had been indoctrinated with radical Islam in Bosnia. But he said there are also active Wahabi cells in Sandzak, Serbia’s breakaway Kosovo province and other areas with substantial Muslim communities.

“If only one per cent of these individuals is prepared for the most radical forms of terrorism, the international community should be seriously concerned,” Trifunovic said.

“We are no longer talking about foreign mujahadeen, who have more or less finished their work in Bosnia, but about a ‘small army’ of local followers, with strong logistics, who are recruiting new members and spreading fear.”

That’s right – the Serbian government is putting local jihadists on trial for plotting to attack the US embassy in Serbia!

What exactly does this mean? Had the jihadists gotten away with that nasty little plot, something tells me that they would not have “claimed credit” for the carnage and gore. Instead, as is the case whenever anything bad happens in the Balkans, the jihadists would have tried to blame it on the local Serbs. That would have been easy enough for them to do. Local Bosnian jihadists already speak Serbian and they don’t look any different from Serbs (hence, “white al Qaeda”). The US would undoubtedly have taken the bait, using the allegation as a rationale for dealing even more harshly with Serbia than it already does.

Why are the jihadists so determined to silence Dr. Trifunovic? Like all other branches of al Qaeda, the Balkans jihadists plan to attempt more terrorist activity in the future – and not only in Serbia. And it would cramp their style if Darko Trifunovic were to alert everybody about the extent of jihadist activity coming from the Balkans – especially at the Euro police conference that he was planning to attend. In fact, just now, any publicity about Balkans jihadism could derail the current US-backed effort, dear to the hearts of the jihadists, to pry Kosovo away from Serbia.

    Tanjug PRIŠTINA — Members of the ANA, an armed ethnic Albanian group in Kosovo the UN has branded terrorist, have spoken again.

    Members of the Albanian National Army (ANA) say they are “currently focused on the northern parts of Kosovo,” where Serbs are a majority and where they will allegedly, following a unilateral proclamation of independence of the province, “attempt to bring in security forces,” Tanjug news agency has quoted BIRN, an online publication.

    “Several armed groups of Kosovo Albanians, with unclear sources of financing, are active in Kosovo and the international security forces are carefully monitoring them for the time being,” BIRN editor Krenar Gashi wrote.

    The Prizren League — the famous meeting that set out to combine into a “Greater Albania” all lands where there were large populations of Albanians — took place on June 10, 1878…

    It has only now come to my attention, thanks to an Albanian newspaper, that Bush’s recent historic visit to Albania — the first ever by a sitting American president — to endorse Kosovo independence and ceremonialize closer ties between the U.S. and a Muslim Greater Albania, was timed to coincide with the anniversary of the Albanian League of Prizren — June 10th.

    Carrying the information from Frankfurt daily News, RTS reported on Sunday that, after two among the most popular Hollywood stars, George Clooney and Sharon Stone, announced they will organize a protest against severing province of Kosovo and Metohija from the rest of Serbia, they were joined by Richard Gere and the all-time favorite James Bond — Sir Sean Connery.

    “In case Serbian officials and Russia do not succeed in preserving Kosovo, the celebrated Hollywood stars might. The world’s most famous stars will, most probably already next month, stand in defense of the southern Serbian province in Hollywood, the heart of international movie industry: Sharon Stone, George Clooney, and also Richard Gere and Sir Sean Connery,” the Frankfurt daily News say.
