It was with Slovenians who were at the top of the state security of Yugoslavia. I was their guest. And they told me what was happening in Kosovo. Slovenia was already independent at the time, but they told me that Kosovo’s muslim terrorists had been spreading terror from the 1970s and who supported them.” – Yako Kedmi, Ex Israeli Intelligence Chief
