It’s also worth mentioning that a Dole staffer advising the then congressman on foreign policy was a Croatian woman named Mira Baratta, granddaughter of an officer of the Ustasha regime (the Nazis’ Croatian incarnation) and daughter of Petar Radielovic, who called Croatian Fuehrer Ante Pavelic “the greatest man in Croatian history” — and who in 1985 defended Andrija Artukovic, “the Himmler of the Balkans” at his L.A. trial. Artukovic had said, “Kill all Serbs and Jews including children so that not even the seeds of the beasts are left.” Baratta helped frame a 1995 Senate bill lifting the U.S. arms embargo against Croatia and Bosnia, and even advocated for the Albanian cause against the Serbs. To quote Richard Perle, “Other than Richard Holbrooke, Baratta has been the most influential individual in shaping U.S. policy” in the Balkans.
These people had a beautiful life in a beautiful country: Yugoslavia. The list of war criminals is long. First among them is Joe Biden, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Madeline Albright, Wesley Clark, Richard Holbrook and their many counterparts in the UK, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Italy. None has been brought to justice. Each should have been …
…during the years 1941-1945, in the satellite state of Croatia under the government of Croatian fascists, known as the Ustashi, supported by the Axis powers, as well as by the Croatian Catholic hierarchy, with the knowledge of the Vatican.
In order to justify his policy of extermination, the Sultan, Abdual Hamid, was known to say: “The way to get rid of the Armenian question is to get rid of the Armenians.”
This same maxim was adopted by the Croatian nationalists and clericals concerning the Serbian question in Croatia. According to the statutes of the Ustashi organization, “the name Ustashi was to be given to those who, in pre-war Yugoslavia, swore that by the destruction of the Yugoslav State he [they] helped in the extermination of Serbianism and the Orthodox Church.” (Nova Hrvatska, May 4, 1941.)
…the Orthodox Serbs in Croatia barely escaped complete extermination.
“From this report it can be seen that the area of the Balkan countries (Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, FYROM, Montenegro and Serbia – Sangiaccato area) is confirmed as a key element for Islamic radicalism, by virtue of the activism of individuals and extremist and Salafist-oriented groups, increasingly involved in the recruitment and transfer of jihadists in Syrian and Iraqi territory ”writes Borghezio.
“Especially in Kosovo, beyond the radical approach preached by some imams, the idea of jihad seems to be alluring especially in some southern areas of the country, where the widespread socio-economic unease accentuates the permeability, especially among the younger ‘Salafist proselytizing action ”.
I don’t know why anyone would be surprised by jihadist propaganda in this area. The war in BiH [Bosnia] is empirical evidence of such propaganda. Then BiH [Bosnia] was put on top of jihad or holy war. After her came Kosovo and Metohija – emphasizes Janjic.
As he says, jihadists came to this area the least.
– Even direct operatives like Osama bin Laden came, but also mujahedeen from Palestine whose crimes were proven. Of course, there are many Wahhabis, but Wahhabism and extremism should not be equated. At the top of Al Qaeda’s fighters are fighters from Kosovo and Metohija, and even terrorists of Kosovo origin took part in the famous 9/11.
“I get a little emotional sometimes, when I talk about them. But they slept on the floor, while our American boys slept in their beds. They fed them food that they needed for their own family so our boys would be fed. I want to emphasize that we as a nation owe the Serbian people.” ~ Art Jibilian, O.S.S. Agent, “Operation Halyard”
“If you looked at Serbian history, for six hundred years they have fought not to be dominated by Muslims” ~ Henry Kissinger .

It appeared that the OHR [Office of the High Representative] wanted the statement issued before the opening of a Muslim monument — essentially a shrine which was being promoted as a site for annual Muslim pilgrimages from around the world — memorializing the radical Islamist allegations about events in Srebrenica to occur on September 19, 2003. The unveiling of the monument would be attended by former US Pres. William Clinton, and “finalizing” the Srebrenica case would help stop the ongoing wave of allegations of illegal Clinton Administration activity in supporting radical Islamist activities in Bosnia during the 1990s. This is particularly critical given the fact that a significant number of the Islamist terrorists involved in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States had strong links into the Bosnian Muslims whom Clinton had supported.
The US Embassy in Sarajevo donated $1-million to the construction of the “shrine”, even though all proper investigations of the Srebrenica affair in fact showed the Islamists’ claims to be unsubstantiated and, in many respects, without foundation at all…
Significantly, when the Muslim representatives involved in building the “shrine” in Srebrenica approached New York Mayor Michael Blumberg to establish a sister-city relationship with New York, the Mayor refused, based on intelligence showing the link between the Bosnian Islamists and the al-Qaida attacks on his city.
As this 1997 congressional press release documents, Bill Clinton’s policies in the former Yugoslavia led to a massive influx of Jihadi terrorists of virtually every variety into Bosnia. They came in support of Alija Izetbegovic, an Islamic extremist and Nazi sympathizer, on the payroll of Iran who had been installed as President of Bosnia by the United States after failing to win election.
