Re: Did Serbia vote for War?

Dear Editor:

It is apparent that Jeffrey Kuhner is a desciple of Goebbels whose Holocaust theory was: “Tell a lie a hundred times it become the truth.”

Claiming that the newly elected president of Serbia, Tomislav Nikolic “embodies the worst forms of Serbian nationalism” is pure historic revisionism, unless your readers are capable of ignoring the liquidation of 1.4 million Serbs, 40,000 Jews and 70,000 Roma Gypsies during the Holocaust by those who Kuhner continues to support today—those Nazi Croats, Nazi Albanians and Nazi Bosnian Muslims whose 22,000 SS Hanjar troops succeeded in the single largest genocide per capita in the Holocaust. It is obvious that Kuhner still believes that the only good Serb is a dead one.

Claiming that the “Chetniks were allied to Benito Mussolini’s fascist Italy,” is a total fabrication and Kuhner counts on your readers to be totally naïve or worse, illiterate about Balkan history. Mussolini held power over Kosovo and during the Holocaust his goons and thugs murdered tens of thousands of Serbs and ethnically cleansed 150,000 Serbs from Kosovo. After the war, Tito’s communist regime forbade their return and Tito gave their property to the Nazis that supported his communist aspirations.

Kuhner is immoral in his ethnic revisionism including the history of Croatia in 1995 when Croats ethnically cleansed over 230,000 Serbs from Croatia. Less than 5% have been permitted to return in the past 17 years, and half of those again fled due to the hideous bigoted way they were treated by the Croatian people.

Kuhner claims that “250,000 were killed,” in the Balkan conflicts, is another total lie and he knows it. According to all the human rights experts and their research there were 97,000 victims killed on all sides in the break up of Former Yugoslavia. It appears that exaggerating numbers is a skill that Kuhner has perfected, especially to his gullible audience at the Washington Times.

As for Kuhner’s claim that “nearly 2 million were ethnically cleansed,” he pretends not to know that 1.4 million were Serbs—twice the combined number of Croat and Bosnian Muslim victims, or that 230,000 of this 2 million figure were cleansed from Croatia, the single largest ethnic cleansing of these Balkan Civil Wars.

In the first Bosnia election it is a fact that over 210,000 Bosnian Serbs who fled and were living in camps in Belgrade were denied a right to cast their ballots and that the Bosnian Muslim, Alija Izetbegovic won the presidency by only 44,000 votes. I have read previous articles by Kuhner in which he supports this hideous undemocratic victory, just as he claims victory in Croatia becoming ethnically pure in which Tudjman won after cleansing 97% of all Serbs from Croatia. This is the same moronic Croat president who said in a Jerusalem Post interview that he was “Grateful his wife was neither a Serb nor a Jew.”

I end by referring to the Omarska Camp, another manipulation in the Kuhner article. The camp was a feature of the infamous Pulitzer Prize winning book by Roy Gutman, entitled Witness to Genocide, an oxymoronic title considering that Gutman never witnessed a single death in his coverage of the Bosnian Civil War. In his forward to the book Gutman wrote: “Having set such lofty standards, I immediately made an exception and wrote about the Omarska camp which I had not visited, based on the second hand witness account.”

In other words, Gutman lied, he fabricated a story and like Kuhner, their duplicity reigns high on the list of Croat and Nazi supporters who perpetrate journalistic fraud on their ignorant and naïve audiences …. “Exceptions” and “lofty standards indeed?” They are merely inconveniences to people of Jeffrey Kuhner’s ilk.

Dear Sir,

The number of the WWII victims on the territory of former Yugoslavia you are putting forward is an addition to the many “speculations” and estimates brought forward.

According to the United States Holocaust Museum, the numbers are different.

“Due to differing views and lack of documentation, estimates for the number of Serbian victims in Croatia range widely, from 25,000 to more than one million. The estimated number of Serbs killed in Jasenovac ranges from 25,000 to 700,000. The most reliable figures place the number of Serbs killed by the Ustaša between 330,000 and 390,000, with 45,000 to 52,000 Serbs murdered in Jasenovac.” [United States Holocaust Museum]

Are you trying to manipulate the readers and insult their intelligence? As Bogoljub Kocovic (a Serbian Scholar, member of the Association of Serbian Writers and Artists, as well as the Action Committee for the Democratic Alternative) said, are you looking for spiritual food to ignite the hatred of the Croats?

Besides I would like to point out that you forgot to mention that by august 1942 Serbia had become the first country in Europe free of Jews (judenrein), the Serbian Nazis and the Serbian regime during WWII collaborated very actively with the Nazi occupiers.

I would recommend a very useful book, the research work of Mr. Philip J. Cohen, which brings a wealth of information regarding this topic and which is an eye opener:

Serbia’s Secret War: Propaganda and the Deceit of History (Eugenia & Hugh M. Stewart ’26 Series on Eastern Europe)

Lady Margaret Thatcher reviewed this research work as follows: “useful counter to current myths about Serbia’s history during the second world war “ [Lady Margaret Thatcher]



2 William Dorich July 13, 2012 at 12:00 am

Just for you Tom:

For anyone who believes that the number of Serbs killed in the Croatian Concentration Camp of Jasenovas is as low as “25,000” we are dealing with a Croatian lunatic who is a sandwich short of a picnic.

My book, Jasenovac Then & Now: A conspiracy of Silence, is well documented, not from Serbian sources, but from German and American sources. I have hundreds of footnotes from German sources, Croat and Serbian inmates of Jasenovac and German political leaders during that historic period, but then again, a true dedicated bigot or a racists is not swayed by facts, documentation, or history.

Tom, you are totally brainwashed and nothing I write here will change your stupid mindset. I write this response, not for you, but for naive readers who do not have a clue about history or any connection to the Balkans.

First of all, my father’s brother married a Croatian woman and my cousins are Roman Catholic Croatians, so spewing your ugly hatred that somehow I am a Serbian bigot is out of touch with reality.

I therefore suggest that you go on any Tablet and buy my book Jasenovac Then & Now: A comspirace of Silence ($2.99) certainly a cheap enough price for a hypocrite like you to afford to read it. It reveals evidence of over 400 Roman Catholic Croatian priests who murdered thousands of Serbs with their own hands then fled through the “Vatican Ratline” for Argentina along with Ante Pavelic, the first president of the Nazi state of Croatia who became the Security Advisor for Juan Peron of Argentina and who issued 34,000 visas to Croatian war criminals, including these 460 Roman Catholic priests. Not a single one of these war criminals were ever brought to justice but people of your ilk demand that Serbs be prosecuted for the alleged killing of 7,000 Srebrenica Muslims and an alleged 23,000 Croats?

Spouting the “pearls of wisdom” from Philip Cohen, a medical doctor without an ounce of Balkan education or connection and who cannot read or speak a single sentence in Serbian and who relied on writing a book based on thousand of documents written in the Cyrillic alphabet only reveals that you will stoop to any depth to betray history and truth. Who gives a rats ass if Margaret Thatcher wrote a positive endorsement to Cohen’s book, she was equally hoodwinked by his publisher. As California governor, President Ronald Reagan wrote a glowing letter about the proud history of Gen. Draza Mihailovic who saved the lives of over 500 downed American airmen over Nazi occupied Yugoslavia, then he betray his own words when Thatcher got hold of him during the outbreak of the Balkan war in 1991.

On various sites, including my book listing on Amazon, you go out of your way to show just how illiterate you are when it comes to Balkan history of WWII. But according to B.T. Barnum, the famous man of the Circus, “A Sucker is born every minute.” Tom, you head his list.

Is every Croat a Nazi? Of course not, but the vast majority are. I remind Tom that today Croatia is the only “ethnically pure” Roman Catholic country in the Balkans where you can still buy Swastika memorabilia on nearly every street corner. In 1991 over 98 Serbian Christian churches were raised in Croatia a result of 430 being raised during WWII. In the past 8 years, 151 Serbian Christian churches have been razed in Kosovo under the noses of 17,000 NATO troops that were also incapable of stopping this destruction or the ethnic cleansing of 90% of the Serb population. Over 230,000 Serbs were cleansed from Croatia in 1991, but Tom never encourages their return to property that was seized by Croat Nazis who lost the war 50 years ago but still maintain their Nazi goals. His political blindness speaks for itself.

For the record… those “anti-Jewish” and “anti-Masonic” stamps use by your village idiot, doctor Philip Cohen, have long since been proved that they were produced in Leipzig Germany in the months that let up to WWII and were filtered into Yugoslavia through Croatia, a willing Nazi partner in that war. How compelling that Tom nor Croat propagandists including Philip Cohen who utilized that “anti-Jewish” stamp on the cover of his book are incapable of providing a single stamp with a Serbian cancellation mark indicating use of that stamp in Serbia during 1941-45… this is a total Nazi ruse and Tom is a willing propagandist who resorts to such historic revisionism. I take pity on your weakness to defend honor, justice or the law.

I realize that it is difficult for Croatia or any Croat to defend their new nation that was based on a checkerboard symbol now appearing on their flag, the symbol under which tens of thousands of Serbs, Jews and Gypsies were liquidated. I am often reminded by these Nazis that the Swastika is an ancient symbol of the Bronze Age. But morons resort to such lip service… it’s not about when a symbol was created that is important but what that symbol represents and that Swastika stands for the liquidation of millions of innocent victims that Tom conveniently sweeps under the nearest rug in order to defend his countrymen.

It is also difficult for people of Tom’s ilk to defend a nation in which Rock Stars resort to the use of the Sieg Heil salute during their concerts, or the same symbol used at various croatian sports events. Croats also used that same right arm salute to greet German troops who entered former Yugoslavia during these recent Balkan Civil wars. Are we suppose to pretend not to notice, Tom? I also realize how difficult is is to erase this ugly bigoted and racists anti Serb past that has succeeded in eliminating 25% of Croatia’s pollution and made their nation ethnically and religiously pure Roman Catholic, the same policy used during the Holocaust against Serbs, Jews and Gypsies. The vast majority of Croats wallow in anti Serbian hatred… except of course for this Tom moron who wishes us to believe that he is as pure as the driven snow. Tom, when you sleep with dogs you get flees.

In case you do not know my history, my grandparents were ethnically cleansed from Kosovo in 1897 after the war between the Turks and the Greeks. They settled in the Krajina region of today’s Croatia where my father was born. Before he became a teenager the family was once again “ethnically cleansed” during WWI and they came to the United States as “Displaced Persons,” a kinder phrase for ethnic racism. During “Operation Storm” in Croatia in 1995 when 230,000 Serbs were ethnically cleansed from Croatia (the single largest ethnic cleansing since the Holocaust) the last 5 relatives of my name were too old and too sick to flee, they were found a month later by the Red Cross with their throat slit. Please do not preach to me about ethnic tolerance, I am sick to death of Croatian violence and your excusing them for it. Why is it that Serbs have never been compensated for these war crimes in WWI or WWII or in the current Civil wars? Tom, you need to get a grip with reality. I am afraid that this is an impossibility with such a warped mind.

I remind Kuhner that today Croatia is the only “ethnically pure” Roman Catholic country in the Balkans where you can still buy Swastika memorabilia on nearly every street corner. Kuhner appears oblivious that in the past 8 years, 151 Serbian Christian churches have been razed in Kosovo under the noses of 17,000 NATO troops that were also incapable of stopping this destruction or the ethnic cleansing of 90% of the Serb population. Kuhner continues to be equally politically blind to the 410 Serbian churches destroyed in Croatia during WWII and the 91 that were destroyed in 1991. His political blindness speaks for itself.

For the record… those “anti-Jewish” and “anti-Masonic” stamps were produced in Leipzig Germany in the months that let up to WWII and were filtered into Yugoslavia through Croatia, a willing Nazi partner in that war.

Testimonies from my book, Jasenovac Then & Now: A Conspiracy of Silence. It makes Tom’s “25,000” victims killed at Jasenovac appear naive, immoral, revisionism or plain stupid.

“The Serbs have become slaughterhouse material. In accordance with this doctrine, the Ustashi took actions against the Serbs, people of the highest cultural level in the Balkans but not of the Catholic faith. Catholics were urged from the church pulpits to persecute Orthodox Serbs. Especially arduous in this were the Franciscans, whose monasteries have for a long time served as a meeting grounds for the Ustashi. Furthermore, it is understood that from a population total of three million Orthodox…more than 600,000 people were killed.”
Karlheinz Deschner,
German writer of
With God and the Fascists,
Stuttgart, 1965.

“On November 15, 1945, after inspecting the site of the Jasenovac Death Camp, with the evidence still very fresh, and only 87 surviving victims available to provide eye witness testimony, a Croatian Commission concluded the following:
“… The exact number of victims swallowed by the camp of Jasenovac will never be
established, because of the stated reasons, but that on the basis of investigation led by
the Commission, it can be concluded that the number of around 500,000 to 600,000
conforms to reality.”
“Crimes in the Jasenovac Camp,”
The Croatian Commission,
November 15, 1945.

In this century, in which the word genocide was coined in 1944, “there is not a pen capable of describing the horror and terror of the atmosphere at Jasenovac. It surpasses any human fantasy. Imagine Hell, the Inquisition, a terror more dreadful than any that ever before existed anywhere, run by bloodthirsty wild animals whose most hidden and disgusting instincts had come to the surface in a way never before seen in human beings—and still you have not said enough.” —Antun Miletich (Croatian survivor of Jasenovac), Concentration Camp Jasenovac, 1941-1945, Belgrade, 1986, p.7.

Jasenovac screamed out at the world and nobody heard that Serbs were the victims of “the greatest genocide, in proportion to a nation’s population,” —Edmond Paris, Genocide in Satellite Croatia—republished under eminent domain with a new title, Convert or Die, Chino, CA, 1961, p. 9. The original publication reads: “The greatest genocide during World War II, in proportion to a nation’s population, took place, not in Nazi Germany but in the Nazi-created puppet state of Croatia.”in WWII, as Jasenovac became the “Yugoslav Dachau.”

for Tom:
I’ve read before your claim that in WWII Serbia was the first “free of jews” state, and that about “collaboration” with Germany; please I suggest you a further study on it; you’ll realize the dfference between a puppet government telling his master what he wants to hear, (that the country is free of jews) and the reality of serbian people massively protecting the jews and opposing that puppet gov…..maybe you should ask Madelaine Albright the infamous jew and state criminal who saved her family twice in that period, maybe you would discover that were the serbs; and I know some descendants of jews who fled from croatia to serbia, where survived the war. If you go to Serbia today, to any town, you will meet with those people, you could ask them.

When you mention Margaret Thatcher , you realice you speak about another state-criminal whose son goes around the world preparing coups d’etat ??????

From your coment I suppose you still haven’t learnt the way that media disinformation staged by NATO powers works…….
