Dear Dartmouth Staff,

As a triple victim of Balkan Genocide I write in response to the recent visit of Atifete Jahjaga, the so called “president” of Kosovo, an unrecognized country, amputated from sovereign Serbian territory.

After the war between the Turks and Greeks in 1897, my grandparents were ethnically cleansed from Kosovo and forced against their will to settle in the Krajina region of what is today Croatia where my father was born. Before he reached is 13th birthday the family was again forced against their will during WWI and brought to the United States as “Displaced Persons,” a kinder phrase for ethnic cleansing.

During the Second World War in Croatia in the village of Vojnic, my father’s birth place, 97 Serbians were locked inside their church by Croatian Nazis and their Nazi priests and burned to the ground. Seventeen of those victims were my relatives. During Operation Storm in August, 1995 when 230,000 Serbs were ethnically cleansed from Croatia the last 5 relatives of my name were too old and too sick to flee. I was notified a month later by the Red Cross that they were found with their throats slit. Therefore, as a triple victim of Balkan Genocide I am outraged that a college of your stature would participate in this disgusting Kosovo propaganda.

First of all the comments on your site that “one million Albanians were cleansed” is a total fabrication. Numerous international journalists claimed that these Albanians fled the bombing. Imagine the context of this lie, it would imply that 6,000 Serbian troops were able to cleanses one million Albanians in two weeks. It was less than honest that no mention was made that 90,000 of these Albanians fled to Belgrade… into the arms of their Serbian enemies? Or, that 450,000 of these Albanians fled to Montenegro and Macedonia, into Serb dominated regions.

The remark that there was “fear of repression in the desire to learn” is not just insulting it is moronic considering that Albanians were permitted to be educated in their own language. For the past 30 years Pristina University in Kosovo had more than 95% Albanian enrollment. I suggest that Ms. Jahjaga stop pissing on our leg and convincing us that it is raining.

Over the past three decades Albanians in Kosovo had numerous ethnic newspapers, radio and television stations and their freedom of speech was never oppressed. But what was cleverly omitted from her presentation was any mention that Albanians for decades received a form of welfare from the Tito regime, unheard of in any Communist system in the world. I also remind the naive students at Dartmouth that the Serbs ranked in 4th place in the communist system of the late Tito regime and the ambassadorships and positions of power were held by Bosnian Muslims, Croats, and Albanians, not Serbs.

Ante Markovic, the Prime Minister of former Yugoslavia (a Croatian) ordered the Serbian army to attack Croatia in 1991. He then resigned and fled to Croatia knowing full well that he had opened Pandora’s box of violence. I also remind your students that during the Tito regime when he gave the Albanians “autonomy” without a single vote of the Yugoslav parliament, the Albanians fired every Serb from their jobs including doctors, teachers, college professors, policemen and judges. Apparently your ignorant student body also needs reminding that during the Second World War over 160,000 Serbs were cleansed from Kosovo and after the war Tito forbade their return, giving their land to the Nazi Albanians who supported his communist efforts. During the autonomy of the 1970s another 120,000 Serbs were forced from Kosovo during a campaign of terror. that included the burning of over 500 Serbian farms, the rape of Serbian nuns and Serbian girls and the burning of 3 Serbian monasteries and 2 major Serbian libraries. Albanian officials burned over 2 million Serbian books including priceless manuscripts. How compelling that your college would invite such morons to your college and allow them to spew their anti Serb hatred. It should be embarrassing that your students ate up this crap like lap dogs.

Missing from her Albanian diatribe was any reference that over 40% of the Albanians in Kosovo are illegal aliens who have crossed the border from Albania into Serbia in the past two decades in the same way that millions of Mexicans have crossed our borders each night in El Paso and San Diego. Giving this alleged “90% majority population” claim legitimacy by your proxy recognition reeks of your lack of international laws and common sense.

Your student body also needs to be reminded that Serbia did not invade or attack any country. Therefore, NATO violated their own treaty by bombing Serbia. The United Nations Charter was violated and Serbia was a founding member. The Helsinki Final Act and the Geneva Conventions were violated and more than $70 billion in infrastructure damage was done to Serbia including the illegal use of cluster bombs on civilian populations and bombs with depleted uranium that have contaminated the region for hundreds of years.

The bombing of the oil storage facilities polluted the Danube River for more than a thousand miles through 6 countries. Cancer rates have escalated by 3,000% since the bombing and birth defects have increased 4 fold. Yet your naive students applauded this hypocrite who, through KLA violence has amputate sovereign Serbian territory.

Since the arrival of 17,000 NATO troops in 1999, the Albanians have destroyed 513 ancient Serbian Orthodox Christian churches as your student body remained silent. Many of these churches were listed as World Treasures by UNESCO containing some of the finest 12th and 13th century frescoes in the world.

A pox on all of your houses.

Any response from the Dartmouth Staff? Probably not.

I am glad that someone has the courage to face these lies. Atifete Jahjaga has been placed at the head of Kosovo by the Americans… just another puppet of the CIA. Basically, as one Albanian said to me while I was visiting Serbia, Kosovo became an American state…. How can this woman fail to ignore the current regime of exclusion and the process of further cantonization of the Serbs in Kosovo? How dares she claim that no further secession is “needed”? For whom is she speaking? For the minorities? Is this how she promotes what was supposed to become a multi-ethnic land? How can the world be so blind in face of this monstruous propaganda?

Be careful SB, being too logical will mark you as an illogical lunatic.

As a nation, Americans have been brainwashed into believing what the media, the CIA and State Department have spoon fed us through their disinformation campaign. The media is no longer independent and looking out for our best interest, most journalists have been bought and sold to the highest bidders and many are in the employ of the CIA. These journalists worry more about their next paycheck and byline then they do about unearthing the hidden truth. Truth goes to the highest bidders and “freedom of the press” has come to mean, freedom for those who own the printing press.

Hillary Clinton and her sex crazed husband, were more concerned about protecting their image then they were about defending human rights. We were led to believe that the American nation would protect and defend the motto inscribed over the doorway of the U.S. Supreme Court…”Equal Justice Under the Law.” Those words now ring hollow for the people in the Balkans and those words have been defecated on by Hillary and her ilk who clearly defended the rights of Muslims at the expense of Christian Serbs who were the majority in the Balkans for centuries.

We were all deceived by the media into believing that we went to war to protect human rights, yet, the Hague Tribunal has proven to be nothing more than a Kangaroo Court where equal rights and equal justice are trampled on with impunity and where Serb defendants are proven guilty before ever entering a courtroom. For many years high ranking international authorities were fully aware of the taking of organs from Serb victims, yet those crimes continue to go unpunished.

It has been over 20 years and we have been fully aware that the Markale Market massacre was perpetrated by the Bosnian Muslims against their own people, yet no one is punished. It has been nearly 18 years that we have been fully aware that less than 940 women were victims of rape and that one third were Serbian women who gave legal video taped depositions in which they name their perpetrators, (document S24991 is a video taped document of 800 Serbian rape victims, the only rape document at the UN from these Civil Wars. Yet no one has been indicted.

It has been 15 years since the Srebrenica “massacre” yet authorities have only recovered 1,200 “BODY PARTS,” not bodies. An arm or a leg with DNA tracing cannot identify how that victim died. The Muslims have managed to use this lack of connected evidence by not allowing any DMA evidence of their family members to be used in the trials at the Hague without their approval, revealing the political nature of these trials.

It has been 13 years in which the Racak Massacre was used as the pretext to bomb the Serbs for 78 days, yet we now know from 4 major international pathologists that the 45 Albanian victims were killed in a pitched battle with the Serbs the day before their bodies were discovered and that the battle was recorded by AP and Reuters, that the bodies were moved to the near bloodless crime scene, that their military uniforms were exchanged for street clothing and that the bodies were mutilated after they were dead. Yet these stage managed events that demonized an entire Serbian nation go unpunished and we Americans continue to support and defend the criminals who perpetrated some of the worse crimes against humanity in the 20th century and we still pretend to be defending human rights…. as long as those rights are not bestowed on any Serb.

The United States and the political opportunists in our intelligence community and in the Pentagon were drive to betray everything we stand for. The killing this week of 16 victims in Afghanistan clearly reveals that our military is full of lunatics. We as a nation violated the UN Charter in which Serbia was a founding member; we betrayed the NATO treaty which was a “defensive” treaty not one used to drop 34,000 bombs on defenseless Serbs from 30,000 feet for 78 days; we violated the Helsinki Final Act and the Geneva Conventions and looked the other way as Croats, Bosnian Muslims and Albanians amputated sovereign Serbian territory to create countries of their own.

Nothing is more repugnant then power mad hypocrites like VP Joseph Biden who, in 1993 in one 15 minute interview on CNN called the Serbs: “illiterates,” “degenerates,” “baby killers,” “butchers,” rapists,” and “cowards.” And imagine he never apologized to 7 million Serbs for such bigoted and racists language, but Russ Limbaugh is expected to lose his job for calling a woman a “slut” because she claimed to have spent $3,000 in 3 years for birth control pills that are readily available for $9 per month at WalMart, or free from Planned Parenthood.

I am sick of the fact that 30 millions abortions have taken place in this country, it is beginning to make the Holocaust liquidations of Jews look like a medical experiment for women’s rights in America.

The Kosovo mouthpiece came to Dartmough to promote Albanian propaganda and the students were too stupid, or worse, to illiterate about Balkan history to realize that they were being used in this massive State Department propaganda ploy. Imagine, 72 years ago (since I was born) the Serbs represented a 53% majority of Kosovo; 20 years ago the Serbs represented 22%, but now they represent 3% and we Americans turn and look the other way pretending not to notice the Genocide taking place right under our noses against the Serbs who were our allies in two World Wars in which they lost 60% of their population. We totally ignore the destruction of 513 ancient Serbian Christian churches razed since the arrival of 17,000 NATO troops. Many of those churches were from the 12th and 13th centuries with some of the finest frescoes in the world and listed with UNESCO as World Treasures. We simply managed to look the other way… but burn a single black church in Alabama and its front page news.

Don’t be fooled for a moment. Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo is no accident of war… it is the single largest American military base in the world built since Vietnam. This war was orchestrated against the Serbs in order to build a new military presence in Europe as the U.S. agreed secretly 20 years ago to be totally out of Germany by 2020 and the War in the Balkans became a convenient excuse to plant our military roots in the Balkans. There are not legal agreements with Serbia when these bases will be removed, not even with these stupid Albanians who want us there for their so called protection. Obama tells us how important it is to get our troops out of Afghanistan by 2014 but says nothing about getting our troops out of Kosovo. And by the way, not a single dime was paid to those Serbian farmers in Kosovo whose land was ripped from their very bosoms to build this American military base. Those Serbian farmers were ethnically cleansed from Kosovo with the help of the CIA. And, it was the same Americans who aided and abetted this Genocide by helping the KLA Terrorist to accomplish their goal.

Of course no one in the media has had the courage to write about the Tripca Mines in Kosovo where experts claim there is enough coal to last more than 300 years. It is the largest coal reserve in Europe. Mineral wealth in Kosovo is worth well over $200 billion. But we Serbs are suppose to pretend that this is about Albanian and Serbian ethnic and religious hostilities… stupid Americans are dumbed down to take our eye off of the ball while international billionaire steal as much of Serbia’s wealth as they can as we are all distracted by political in-fighting.

What the Albanians and Serbians have not come to realize is that they both have fears of being ruled by the opposing ethnic group, but in the end all of them will be dominated by international financial criminals who will steal them blind and imprison them in economic slavery far more devastating than they could ever impose on each other.

When Tito died he owed Uncle Sam over $34 billion dollars in national debt to the United States. Why has there been no dialogue out of our State Department about Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo paying off this debt to the American taxpayers now that they have gained their independence?
