Canadian PM Steven Harper, Leader of the Free World, Vetoes Bosnian Lie Resolution

It seems that Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper steps up to the plate, yet again, filling the vacuum created by the abdication of the once proud leader of the free world, America. This is not the first time Harper has done something this bold and courageous. But considering the worldwide appeasement and capitulation to the ummah, this is huge. Truth.

It began with a lie. Much more here.

Julia Gorin nails it.

We Have Arrived:
As the Mosque De Triomphe Goes Up in New York, Canada has Bigger Balls than
America

While American politicians almost across the board have either stayed silent
or endorsed the erection of Le Mosque de Triomphe just yards away from where
Muslims recently killed thousands of Americans, in a little-noticed development
this summer, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper became the first Western
leader to stand up to what is generally considered less insidious Islamic dogma:
that coming from Bosnian Muslims. Here is what happened.

For some time now, Bosnian Muslims have been pushing their campaign to get
the world’s governments — from the international level to the national level to
the local level — to turn July 11 into an almost compulsory “genocide
commemoration” day on behalf of the “8,000″ Muslims supposedly executed by
Serbian forces in 1995. (This figure includes the 3,000 Srebrenica soldiers who
were redeployed without their families being informed.)

They have had dominoe-like success, getting not only the EU and UN to
officially mark the day every year, but getting the U.S. Congress in 2005 to
actually pass a resolution condemning the “genocide” at Srebrenica.

The International Tribunal at the Hague felt adequately compelled by its own
servility to Islamic demands that the same year, it expanded the definition of
the word “genocide” just so that Muslims didn’t feel left out of history’s
victimized populations, whose tragedies they’ve always sickly envied and whose
world reverence and sympathy they covet. (Who can forget the famous “Muslim Anne
Frank,”
who wrote her best-selling diary from the comfort of Paris and later
graduated college, none of which caused any skepticism from
the Holocaust Memorial Day website, which published excerpts to mark Holocaust Memorial Day 2007.)

In addition to suiting Islamic victim-mongering, expanding the definition
also served the purpose of making the crime fit the expected punishments for
Serbian generals and soldiers. Meanwhile, the International Court of Justice,
rather than doing its own investigation into the Srebrenica matter, simply
grafted the Tribunal’s “genocide” ruling as its own.

And so recently, the Muslim genocide industry tried to get the Canadian
Parliament to pass a resolution similar to the one that our servile,
pusilanimous, ignorant, and buyable Congress did, but going a step further to
establish a national day of remembrance called Srebrenica Remembrance Day.
Dutifully, Liberal Party of Canada MP Robert Oliphant introduced Bill C-533 into
the House of Commons, and the rest of Parliament dutifully obliged in passing
it. But conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper vetoed it. Good on him.

In a response letter to a constituent concerned with facts, Oliphant
explained his motivation. Part of the motivation appears to be that other world
bodies and governments have done what the Muslims asked, and so that lends the
Muslim claims legitimacy. Here is an excerpt:

…[T]he genocidal nature of the particular incident at Srebrenica in the
summer of 1995 has been internationally recognized…As you are no doubt aware,
both the Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former
Yugoslavia and the International Court of Justice have ruled that what occurred
in July 1995, when 8000 Bosniak men and boys were killed by Bosnian Serb Forces
in the region of Srebrenica, was genocide. These judgments were the thoughtful
results of fair and independent investigation and testimony.

[Not. The MP assumes this to be the case, because he clearly hasn’t had the
time to observe the Hague in action.]

Internationally, nations have stepped forward with resolutions regarding the
massacre and calls for a day of remembrance. This includes both the European
Parliament and the House of Representatives and Senate of the United States of
America. Most recently, on March 31st of this year, the Government of Serbia,
led by President Boris Tadic, issued a full state apology for the Srebrenica
massacre, providing tacit recognition of the genocidal nature of the crime, and
endorsing the prior ruling of the International Court of
Justice.

Note: The Government of Serbia will admit to killing OJ Simpson’s wife, if
only you’d just let them join the party already.

On June 10, the day I introduced this Bill, it was announced that two Bosnian
Serbs, convicted for committing genocide in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre, were
sentenced to life in prison. These are the first individuals to be definitively
convicted for genocide by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former
Yugoslavia.

As opposed to Radislav Krstic (to name just one) who in 2001 got 46 years
for Srebrenica just because. It was during Krstic’s appeal that the court widened
the definition of genocide, to make it even easier to throw the book at Serbian
defendants. And so that Oliphant could proudly continue:

Both men were found guilty of genocide, extermination, murder and
persecution. The court jailed five other defendants, army and police officers,
for between five and 35 years for their involvement in the genocide…I hope that
this bill…will ultimately provide a small degree of comfort to the survivors of
this genocide and to the Bosnian Muslim community here in
Canada…

It sounds like the “comfort” he hopes to offer the Bosnian-Muslim community
is more like appeasement. After all, Oliphant is a Western politician and
therefore terrified of Muslims. But his efforts will backfire. Such a resolution
will only serve to reinforce the Islamic sense of grievance and victimhood. By
establishing the Muslim version of events as reality, we are providing tangible
“proof” that Muslims can point to and say they were being wantonly slaughtered
while the world — Canadians included — “stood by and did nothing.”

Westerners are admitting to their role in something that didn’t happen, and
digging their own graves. That’s not to mention the UN-suing lawsuits that admitting to lies invites.
Similarly, by admitting to what it didn’t do, Serbia has opened the door to
lawsuits against it. Conversely, when Bosnia sued Serbia-Montenegro for genocide, the goal was “to force
the Serb authorities to ‘confess’ to the mainstream propaganda version of what
happened in Srebrenica,” as Nebojsa Malic wrote me. “The payoff and the
subsequent report by the infamous Srebrenica Commission were predictably used as
‘proof’ of Serb guilt.”

Just like in the “genocide” ruling by the ICTY: the court overhauls
jurisprudence in order to affirm a false reality, then the world that was
clamoring for it to do so cites the court’s ruling establishing the demanded
reality.

As president of the NGO “Srebrenica Historical Project,” Stefan Karganovic,
told the Serbian newspaper Vesti, Harper made the
right decision to veto Parliament’s initiative, stating, “Prime Minister Harper
showed the courage to resist the political pressures, which is rarely seen in
today’s world. Besides his personal integrity, his decision also shows the West
is becoming tired of the requests to follow the agenda of the one aggressive and
well organized interest group in Bosnia and Herzegovina.”

Karganovic added that the group pushing for the resolution — the Congress of
North American Bosniaks — uses the human tragedy in Srebrenica to undermine the
suffering and losses of others in the conflict.

This correct view was seconded by Bojan Ratkovic, Founder and President of
the Serbian Youth League of Canada, whose open letter to the Canadian Public
read in part:

…Robert Oliphant ignores completely the full context of the Srebrenica
Massacre and the countless brutal war crimes committed by Bosnian Muslim forces
and their Al-Qaeda-linked Mujahedeen allies [including some who were present in
Srebrenica] against Serbian civilians and other ethnic minorities throughout
Bosnia and Herzegovina…In fact, many of those killed met their end at the hands
of Bosnian Muslim soldiers and paramilitaries [including those present in
Srebrenica].

The letter goes on to list the historical genocides suffered by Serbs — the
implicit question being one that I’ve asked before with regard to Srebrenica
vis-a-vis the Armenian genocide by Muslim Turks: Why the pressure to mark a
“genocide” of Muslims, but not those of non-Muslims, often committed by
Muslims? As I’ve answered before: If Muslims are killed, it’s a genocide. If
Muslims do the killing, it’s not a genocide. This alone should lay bare the
spineless motivations of Western governments submitting to this genocide
shake-down. But here’s that list by Ratkovic:

The Serbian people were the victims of not one but three genocides during the
20th century:

– Hundreds of thousands of Serbian civilians were brutally massacred by
Austro-Hungarian, Ottoman and Bulgarian forces during the First World War. Many
of these crimes were committed by Bosnian Muslim forces fighting on the side of
Austria-Hungary against the Serbs, a fact well documented by such war crime
investigation pioneers as Dr. Archibald Rudolph Reiss.

– During the Second World War, many Bosnian Muslims joined the Nazi puppet
Independent State of Croatia and contributed to the extermination of hundreds of
thousands of Serbs, Jews and Roma peoples….

– Throughout the Yugoslav Civil Wars of the 1990s, the Serbs were the victims
of multiple campaigns of genocide and ethnic cleansing on the territories of
Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina orchestrated in large part by the direct
descendents of the SS Handschar, who attempted to realize [fundamentalist
wartime Bosnian president] Alija Izetbegovic’s dream of an ethnically and
religiously pure Islamic Bosnia as outlined in his supremacist manifesto, The
Islamic Declaration, which was first published as early as 1970. [Re-released in
1990.]

Regrettably, the honourable Robert Oliphant makes no attempt to
properly analyze the full context of the Srebrenica Massacre. I wish to inform
him that prior to the Serbian forces taking the Srebrenica enclave in July of
1995, the enclave itself was being used as a staging area for military
operations by Bosnian Muslim paramilitaries led by [the government-assisted]
Bosnian warlord Naser Oric. These paramilitaries, aided by Mujahedeen terrorists
from Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, committed countless unspeakable
war crimes in and around the towns of Srebrenica and Bratunac from 1992 all the
way up to July of 1995. In fact, entire Serbian villages were [razed], Christian
churches destroyed, graveyards desecrated, and over three and a half thousand
Serbian civilians were mercilessly butchered during those three years. Due to
the fact that most Serb men of the region were conscripted into the Serbian
army, Naser Oric and his paramilitaries almost exclusively targeted innocent
civilians, including women, children, and elderly Serbs who had no ability or
opportunity to flee the carnage.

Once the Serbian forces entered the Srebrenica enclave in July of 1995, war
crimes were undoubtedly committed and the Geneva Convention was violated. This
is inexcusable and reprehensible, regardless of the circumstances. Nonetheless,
many of the Serbian soldiers who entered Srebrenica had their families
slaughtered by Bosnian Muslim paramilitaries, and to portray the Srebrenica
Massacre as an isolated incident without a proper context is a direct affront to
truth and justice.

[T]he Serbian Community of Canada and all Canadians
who value truth and justice demand a clear answer from the honourable Robert
Oliphant as to why he believes that the lives of Serbian civilian victims who
were murdered by Bosnian Muslim forces are worth less than the lives of Bosnian Muslims? Furthermore, we
demand that he justify to the Canadian public why he does not feel that all the
innocent victims of the Yugoslav Civil War deserve to be properly remembered,
and why he is insisting that only Bosnian Muslims deserve a remembrance day? […]

Back to Stephen Harper, whose forthrightness on this issue — which is what
one hopes this is — puts America’s so-called conservative politicians to shame.
In response to Harper’s stand, the fury of “the world community” came swiftly,
revealing the pressure he’s up against:

MPs demand Harper recognize the Srebrenica Genocide June 9,
2010

PM must join the world community and his Foreign Affairs Minister and pass
the motion

OTTAWA – Today, NDP MP Brian Masse, along with Emir Ramic, President of the
Congress of North American Bosniaks, Dr. Zijad Delic, National Director of the
Islamic Congress of Canada, and other leaders from the Canadian Bosniak
community and a survivor of the Srebrenica Genocide, were joined by Liberal MP
Rob Oliphant and Bloc MP Francine Lalonde, to demand the Prime Minister rescind
his veto of a House of Commons motion, agreed to by the Foreign Affairs
Minister’s office and all opposition parties, which recognizes the Srebrenica
genocide with a Remembrance Day.

“This is an embarrassment and shameful. As the only western country to have
not passed a motion or resolution recognizing the Srebrenica genocide, the Prime
Minister has diminished Canada’s position in the world on the eve of the G-8 and
G-20 Summits,” Masse stated. “What is humiliating and outrageous is the Prime
Minister has vetoed what his own Foreign Affairs Minister agreed to. Even the
Serbian parliament has passed a resolution. This is appalling.”

On the contrary, Canada’s position in the world has just been elevated
10-fold, at least in my (and the Judeo-Christian god’s) eye. The writers of the
press release are appalled that Canada hasn’t joined the world in the outrageous
self-humiliation it’s imposing on itself, an omission that is being termed
“humiliating and outrageous.” Then we get into the usual fairy tale:

After the fall of Srebrenica on July 11th, 1995, Bosnian Serb forces,
commanded by General Ratko Mladic (an indicted war criminal), and paramilitary
units rapidly executed more than 8,000 Bosniak (Muslim) men, boys, and seniors,
who had sought safety in the area. Moreover, approximately 30,000 people were
forcibly deported in a UN-assisted ethnic cleansing.

“UN-assisted ethnic cleansing” is what the writers, like several
international organizations, are calling the Serb-assisted UN busing to safety
of women, children and elderly. Then the writers get into citing the “opinions”
of all the bodies that they’ve successfully bullied into accepting their
uninvestigated “truths”:

The European Parliament resolution referred to the Srebrenica Massacre as
“the biggest war crime in Europe since the end of WWII.” This atrocity has been
declared an act of genocide by the International Criminal Tribunal for the
Former Yugoslavia and the International Court of Justice.

The U.S. House, U.S. Senate and the European Parliament have all passed
resolutions or motions that use the word genocide to describe the Srebrenica
Massacre, which is the only event during the war in Bosnia (1992-1995) to have
been declared a genocide by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former
Yugoslavia.

…Lejla Handanovic, speaking on behalf of the victims, declared, “many people
in Canada are not aware of the events that took place in Srebrenica….having this
resolution will help raise awareness of the genocide and let us actually put
meaning to the words, ‘Never again.’” […]

She is worried that “many people in Canada” haven’t yet been reached by the
Islamic propaganda, leaving them up for grabs by the truth. There was also this
anti-Harper statement issued by the group that’s been shoving the resolution
down Canadians’ throats:

CNAB disappointed with Prime Minister Harper’s shameful veto of
the motion to remember the Srebrenica Genocide

Congress of North American Bosniaks (CNAB) strongly condemns the shameful
decision of the Canadian prime minister to veto a House of Commons motion M-416,
agreed to by the Foreign Affairs Minister’s office and all opposition parties…It
is incomprehensible that the prime minister continues to ignore the voices of
reason and insists on questioning the facts surrounding the Srebrenica
Genocide
which have been established on many occasions by the
International [Court] of Justice [and] the International Criminal Tribunal for
Former Yugoslavia. In addition, the U.S. and the EU have both passed the
Srebrenica Genocide resolutions…Many cities in the United States and state
governments in the US have started issuing resolutions and
proclamation[s]recognizing the importance of this day.

We call upon all the MPs of Canada to continue to push for justice for the
victims…If Canada does not recognize the Srebrenica genocide as defined by the
United Nations Charter it will…send a clear signal to Canadian Bosniaks that
despite their best efforts as citizens, the country they now call home is
unwilling to support their loved ones who lost their lives in the worst atrocity
in Europe since the Holocaust.

On behalf of CNAB Board of Directors
Hamdija Custovic,
CNAB
Spokespeson

Indeed, as defined by the UN Charter, genocide is precisely what Srebrenica
was not. And that’s why the Court adjusted the
definition.

The best analysis of the Harper-Srebrenica phenomenon came from Nebojsa
Malic, in a blog post last month titled “Pushing the Myth“:

…After Mr. Harper put the kibosh on the resolution, the CNAB and the
Institute [for the Research of Genocide] raised a ruckus. Their initial protest,
on June 23, included a long list of people identified as an “international team
of experts” and claiming illustrious academic titles. The post with the list,
however, has since been taken down from the Institute website.

Here are just some of the names from the list:
• M. Cherif Bassiouni
(former UN rapporteur on the events in Bosnia, who endorsed the ridiculously inflated casualty figures and the “mass rape” hoax)
• Francis A. Boyle (international ambulance-chaser
and author of the “genocide” lawsuit by the Izetbegovic government against
Serbia, rejected before an actual court)
• Florence Hartmann (once
spokesperson for Carla Del Ponte at the ICTY)
• Marko Attila Hoare (a
world-renowned Serbophobe-cum-historian)
• Daniel Toljaga (listed as member
of the Board of Directors at the Congress of North American Bosniaks, but better
known as proprietor of the Srebrenica Genocide Blog)
• Dzemaludin Latic and Fatmir
Alispahic, champions of militant Islam and Serbophobia considered even in Bosnia
to be the lunatic fringe.

Suffice to say that the list was a veritable who’s who of professional
victims, genocide entrepreneurs, and people who have built their careers on the
myth of Bosnia. So, these folks have taken upon themselves to have the Canadian
Parliament endorse their version of history by government fiat — i.e. by force,
since they can’t actually prove it in court. It is as if they don’t believe
their argument good enough to just persuade people, even though it has
enjoyed almost uncontested dominance in the media for the past 15
years!

The much less organized Canadian Serbs have protested this proposal with
letters. The response they got was pretty much a set of talking points
reminiscent of the content found on the SGB, Hoare’s blog, or the CNAB site.

The letter…specifically mentions the ICTY and ICJ verdicts, claiming they
were “thoughtful results of fair and independent investigation and
testimony.”

Yet the ICJ verdict specifically said it had not considered the Srebrenica
events itself, but simply accepted the ICTY rulings at face value. To call the
ICTY’s verdicts “thoughtful”, their investigations “independent” and the
testimonies of serial perjurers “fair” — that’s just rich. Let’s see: their
crown
witness
, on which the entire case hangs, is a liar. They have conducted
sloppy forensic work and later destroyed much of the evidence. They refuse to
show the DNA evidence, then claim it proves something that is physically
impossible for DNA evidence to prove (i.e. manner of death). And that’s just the
tip of the iceberg! The ICTY verdicts have more holes in them than a kitchen sieve.

Another argument in the response is that others have done this — the European
Parliament, the US House and Senate, and hey, even the (quisling) government of
Boris Tadic in Serbia! — so why not the Canadian legislature?
Well, since when did “everyone is doing it” become a valid argument? Just
because some lawmakers in Europe and the US have voted with their hearts for a
well-prepared piece of propaganda does not have the magical power to transform
that propaganda into fact. Truth is not a matter of majority vote — or even
consensus.

From the first days of the Bosnian War, the Izetbegovic regime’s weapon of choice was propaganda. They aimed to win the war by
getting outside forces to do the fighting for them, based on heart-rending
stories of massacres, mass rape, concentration camps and genocide. One after
another, those stories have been exposed as fabrications and deliberate
distortions of the already horrifying reality, while the full horrors of the war
were never reported, so as not to interfere with the mythical narrative. The Srebrenica “genocide” is the last lie
that remains, the one myth that was built up and reinforced more than any of the
others. By now, Srebrenica has become a post facto justification for
everything: the ethnic cleansing of Serbs, the foreign mujahedin, the rise of
Wahhabism and terrorism, the re-Islamization of Bosnia’s Muslims
(a
goal Izetbegovic set for himself in the 1970s, mind you), the ongoing
refusal of Muslim politicians to abide by the country’s Constitution, and the
equally ongoing attempts to fulfill their wartime objectives politically, by
overturning the Dayton Accords.

All of this rests on the foundation of a myth that what happened in July 1995
in Srebrenica was “genocide”. Even though the women and children were safely
evacuated. Even though the column that refused to surrender and set off across
the mountains and minefields to Tuzla was a military formation. Even though the
actual number of people who died on that march was never established (the
“8,000″ figure is equally arbitrary as the “300,000″ [Bosnia war dead] we’d
heard for a decade, before facts became impossible to ignore), and the actual
evidence suggests that the number of people actually murdered (as in executed,
which indeed is a war crime) is several hundred. Even though nothing was ever
produced to demonstrate intent on part of the Bosnian Serbs to actually
exterminate the Muslims as a people — apart from the very strong belief by the
Muslims that this was the case.

[Note: By now the Muslims do strongly believe their own lies, but I contend
that it did not start out this way; the Muslims were driven more by their desperate Holocaust
envy
.]

Yet in a proper court of law, it doesn’t matter what one believes — only what
one can prove. Fully aware that the ICTY judgments are based on belief
and conjecture rather than actual facts, the believers in the Srebrenica
Genocide Myth are now trying to impose it by force, by getting governments to
pass resolutions. Next up will probably be demands that anyone questioning their
myth be prosecuted as a “holocaust denier.” So, not only are they disparaging the actual Holocaust by declaring Srebrenica a
“genocide,” they are also exploiting and abusing the mechanisms established so
no one could strive to rehabilitate the Nazis and deny the suffering of the
Jews. When you consider the fact that the ancestors of many of those Muslims actually helped the Nazis in their ghastly “Endloesung”, it
becomes obvious that Srebrenica is not just about the present and the future,
but also about whitewashing the past.

I understand why it is in the interest of the Bosnian Muslims’ religious,
political and propaganda leadership (and their associates, fellow-travelers and
useful idiots in the West and elsewhere) to promote the Srebrenica Genocide
Myth. How that would serve Canada’s interests, however, is beyond me. Stephen
Harper appears to have reached a similar conclusion — and for that he deserves
thanks, not just of the Serbs living in Canada, but all Canadians who care about
their own country.

Before Stephen Harper, there was in fact one other Western politician who
rejected the Srebrenica-kowtowing fetish, making him the first-ever Western
politician to stand up to Bosnian-Muslim dogma. Ironically, it was New York
Mayor Michael Bloomberg, as the International Strategic Studies Association reported in 2003:

Recent information emerging from Bosnia-Herzegovina, and particularly from
the RS [Republika Srpska] investigations into the Srebrenica affair and other
aspects of terrorism in the region, have highlighted the fact that the Clinton
Administration had, during the war, facilitated the Islamist terrorist
activities because of the Clinton Administration’s need to demonize the Serbs in
order to provide a casus belli for US-led military actions in the area to
distract from domestic US political problems. Significantly, when the
Muslim representatives involved in building the “shrine” in Srebrenica
approached New York Mayor Michael Blumberg [sic] 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.

Of course, today Bloomberg is a censors protest ads by us infidels — so we see the direction
things have gone in.

Since earlier I mentioned that the genocide-mongers point to Serbia’s recent
“admission” to the genocide, it is relevant that this ISSA report was titled “US
Official Implicated With Bosnian High Representative Ashdown in Attempting to
Force Fabricated Report on Srebrenica.” In this case it was Bosnia’s Serb
Republica that was being bullied. Here is an excerpt:

Very reliable sources within the Office of the High Representative in Bosnia
and Herzegovina, and other sources in Sarajevo, have told GIS/Defense &
Foreign Affairs Daily that…Amb. Donald S. Hays, the Deputy High
Representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina, has been actively engaged in attempts
to force a fabricated report to be published on the controversial wartime
fighting at the city of Srebrenica
.

Amb. Hays, presumably at the insistence of High Representative Paddy Ashdown,
the former British politician, has demanded the publication of a so-called
“final report” on an alleged mass-killing of Bosnian Muslims at Srebrenica in
1995…In essence, Amb. Hays and Lord Ashdown are attempting to force the
Government of Republica Srpska (RS) to admit that Serbs were responsible for
killing thousands of Muslims at Srebrenica.

The Government of Republica Srpska’s leadership — indeed any of the elected
officials of the state — can be summarily dismissed immediately by the High
Representative at any time should they refuse to obey his orders, regardless of
whether or not the officials were democratically elected or whether the High
Representative’s own actions violate the Dayton Accords, which he was put in
office to sustain. This threat was implicit in the ultimatum delivered by Amb.
Hays in a series of meetings he held with the Republica Srpska Prime Minister,
Mladen Ivanic, in late August and early September 2003 in Banja Luka, the RS
capital.

Amb. Hays presented the Prime Minister with a document — on the letterhead of
the Office of the High Representative (OHR) — which the Government of Republica
Srpska was “advised” to accept as à fait accompli…The content of the two-page
document was to be re-issued by the Government of Republica Srpska…as though it
represented the RS “final report” on the Srebrenica issue. Significantly, the RS
has been conducting a detailed and thorough investigation of the issue and has
already issued some material which acknowledged Serbian responsibility for some
actions but which also contained a wide range of other information which showed
the conflict in a much more detailed light. The RS office was established
specifically to assist the International Criminal Tribunal on
Yugoslavia….

It appeared that the OHR 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.

[Note: This is a memorial and burial site at which Bosnian Muslims themselves
have said that soldiers from other parts of Bosnia are buried; adding insult to
injury, the Serb Republic was made to help fund this million-dollar monument to
the killers of Serb civilians. The majority of the funding, however, came from
US taxpayers.]

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.

Amb. Hays’ two-page document was expected to
lead to a statement, possibly as early as September 8, 2003, by RS officials,
which would not only serve to protect the Clinton Administration officials,
including the former US President, but would also serve as an admission of guilt
of Serbs for killing thousands of Muslims who, in fact, were not known to have
been killed.

The document which Hays has been pushing essentially forces
the RS Government to state that:

1. Nothing is unclear in the Srebrenica investigation except the number of
victims. In other words, the Islamist propaganda, supported by Ashdown — who has
long been disavowed in the UK by his former colleagues in the Royal Marines
because of his unequivocal acceptance of Islamist propaganda — is accepted as
fact by the RS Government, thereby admitting guilt for crimes never
committed;

2. The RS apologizes to the Muslims for earlier RS statements which disputed
the Islamist propaganda….

One moderate Muslim source in Sarajevo told GIS: “If the Bush Administration
does not act soon, terrorism against US and Western interests will erupt soon
across much of the Balkans, and from the Balkans into the rest of the world. And
all of this seems to be just to allow the old US Administration of Clinton to
cover their tracks. The radicals not only destroyed the Serbs, they also
destroyed the lives of moderate Muslims. Now they will start another war. Why is
the Bush Administration following the policies of the Clinton Administration?
Why are Clinton people still running all the key posts in American embassies in
the region?” […]

When the ICJ re-issued the ICTY’s “genocide” label in 2007, the
Bosnian-Muslim leadership used the “ruling” to call for the abolition of the
Dayton-created Serb Republic all together, and has been calling for the
liquidation of the republic ever since.

When the European Parliament resolution in January 2009 called on all EU
countries to proclaim July 11th a day of commemoration — followed by similar
resolutions in Slovenia, Croatia and Montenegro — the Bosnian Serbs rejected being part of it. Prime Minister Milorad Dodik said
the resolution “leaves ‘a bitter taste’ because it ‘underlines only one event’
while ignoring many other atrocities committed during Bosnia’s 1992-1995 war.
However, according to the above-linked report, “Dodik and other Bosnian Serb
leaders didn’t question the fact [sic] that genocide took place during and after
the fall of Srebrenica. Yet they…expressed concerns that the EU resolution…may
be misused in Bosnian political games.”

If true, it was unwise of the Serb Republic to not contest the genocide
point.

What we are witnessing is an unprecedented, coerced mourning — of an enemy
people. As an observer named Dragan Rakic in Strasbourg, France noted:

According to some media sources the CE [European Community] adopted the 11
[July] as a “remembrance day of Srebrenica”, the Slovenian representative, Mr.
Jelko Kacin (strange that one of the member of the former Yugoslavia has such an
influence), suggested to celebrate that day by “all the west Balkan countries”.
Allow me to notice that the Yom Hashoah Holocaust Remembrance Day, which is
[commemorated] by the Jewish communities all around the world, is limited to
those communities and was never imposed to [any] EU country as a compulsory
celebration. Mr. Jelko Kacin is trying to place Srebrenica above the German nazi
holocaust where 6 millions of innocent Jews were annihilated by Hitler’s regime.
It is most indecent to compare Srebrenica to German nazi crimes and put most
probably jihadist victims above millions who perished in other odious
wars.

Yet we have a supposed Jew in the Bosnian government, Foreign Minister Sven
Alkalaj, who is so down with the jihad that in July 2009 he called for
the Srebrenica memorials to be held every month, not just once a year.

At the same time, no sooner did the EU pass the mandatory Srebrenica
commemoration resolution in January 2009 than the same month Israel found itself
rebuked by two prominent Bosnian Muslims for underscoring the singularity of the
Jewish Holocaust — and for supposedly committing an equivalent genocide against
Palestinians:

Bosnian Muslim authors slam Israel for “denying Bosniak
genocide”

BBC Monitoring Europe (Political) – January 29, 2009 Thursday;
Text of report by Bosnia-Hercegovina Federation official news agency FENA

Sarajevo, 29 January: Authors Dzemaludin Latic and Fatmir Alispahic today
condemned Israel’s denial of the genocide against Bosniaks and other peoples
subjected to genocide.

Latic and Alispahic said in a statement for the public that they were
“raising their voices in protest against Israeli officials’ attacks on the
sanctity of the Bosniak victims, and by extension the Bosniak people who are
blamed for inflicting pain and suffering on the Bosnian Serbs from the position
of ‘terrorism and extremist fundamentalism’”.

They believe that in his
correspondence with [Serb] entity Premier Milorad Dodik Israeli President Shimon
Peres brazenly violated the sovereignty of the state of Bosnia-Hercegovina,
because he “communicates with someone who does not represent our state, but only
an entity which does not carry the attributes of a state”.

They also
condemned the insult to all victims of genocide uttered by senior Israeli
diplomat Pinhas Avivi, who said that “for his country the Holocaust is the only
genocide”.

Latic and Alispahic stressed that the Holocaust was the worst genocide in
history, whose dimensions are only comparable to Israel’s genocide against the
Palestinians, which has been going on for decades with the support of America
and silence of many western and Islamic countries.

“Respect for the Jewish victims of the Holocaust does not exclude our respect
for Palestinian victims,” they said.

Deputy chairman of the Bosnia-Hercegovina Council of Ministers, Tarik
Sadovic, expressed the same view earlier that month.

Notice that, all the while, the real genocide of Serbs and Jews by Croatian
and Bosnian Muslims during WWII is still not commemorated by anyone, nor even
mentioned, allowing for it to be celebrated instead of mourned and its
perpetrators hailed as heroes. Just one example, from April 2008: Melbourne eatery hails leader of Nazi-allied Croatia

Melbourne’s Katarina Zrinski restaurant held a celebration this past weekend
to honor World War II Croatian leader Ante Pavelic….The restaurant is attached
to the local Croatian club…a large photograph of Pavelic was hung in the
restaurant, T-shirts with his picture and that of two other [Ustasha]
commanders…for sale at the bar, and the establishment of the [WWII] “Independent
State of Croatia” was celebrated….this was not the first time that Croatian
émigrés in Australia had openly defended Croatian Nazi war criminals.

I’ll close with some snippets of actual reporting from the days, weeks and
months following July 11, 1995 — so that readers can judge for themselves what
did and didn’t happen. From the chronology, one realizes that while the Bosnian
government was trying to spin a tale of massacre, we largely ignored the ploy
until the deadly ethnic cleansing operation “Storm” against Serbs in Croatia
began a month later. It was an operation that the U.S. assisted, but it risked
confusing the tidy “good guys” and “bad guys” narrative. Hence, we set our
sights on, and turned everyone’s attention to, Srebrenica.

With that, here is the real-time reporting, brought to us by Peter Brock’s
book Media Cleansing:

NY Times, July 16, 1995:

[Brock: "Thousands of Muslim women and children refugees began arriving at
Tuzla from Srebrenica hours after (the) Serb takeover.”] They said that most of
the men among them had fled into forests in the hope of making their way to
Muslim-held territory…

NY Times, July 18, 1995:

Some 3,000 to 4,000 Bosnian Muslims who were considered by UN officials to be
missing after the fall of Srebrenica have made their way through enemy lines to
Bosnian government territory. The group, which included wounded refugees,
sneaked past Serb lines under fire and crossed some 30 miles through forests to
safety.

The Daily Telegraph, July 24, 1995:

[I[In the absence of a single retrieved or verified Muslim body from
Srebrenica, a report from Tuzla said that]fter five days of interviews the
United Nations chief investigator into alleged human rights abuses during the
fall of Srebrenica has not found any first-hand witnesses of
atrocities
. [E[Emphasis added by Brock]p>

NY Times, July 27, 1995:

[B[Brock: The stories of mass (anti-)Muslim atrocities at Srebrenica were
inconsistent with accounts from Muslim refugees who arrived from nearby Zepa a
few days later:]They brought tales of two weeks of living in caves in the
wooded hills during the heavy bombardment of the U.N.-designated ’safe haven,’
but did not recount atrocities like those people brought out of Srebrenica after
the Serbs overran that ’safe area’ on July 11… ‘We were treated well by the
Serbian soldiers,’ said Ms. (Ramiza) Kolovac, a law student in Sarajevo who was
visiting her parents in Zepa…” [B[Brock: The surprising reports from refugees and
aid agencies about "no evidence of systematic abuses of the Zepa civilians”
(were) desperately disputed by Bosnian government officials in Sarajevo who
decided to bar journalists from camps holding Zepa refugees…]p>

Times of London, Aug. 2, 1995:

Thousands of the “missing” Bosnian Muslim soldiers from Srebrenica who have
been at the center of reports of possible mass executions by the Serbs, are
believed to be safe to the northeast of Tuzla…For the first time…the Red Cross
in Geneva said it had heard from sources in Bosnia that up to 2,000 Bosnian
Government troops were in an area north of Tuzla.

They had made their way there from Srebrenica “without their families being
informed,” a spokesman said, adding that it had not been possible to verify the
reports because the Bosnian Government refused to allow the Red Cross into the
area.

Associated Press, Aug. 10, 1995:

[Bro[Brock, citing an Aug. 10 NY Times article: Madeleine Albright showed spy
photos to the U.N. Security Council and claimed 2,000 to 2,700 missing Bosnians
from Srebrenica may have been shot by Bosnian Serbs. An unidentified] 63-year-old Bosnian refugee told a team led by U.S. Assistant Secretary of State
John Shattuck that Gen. Ratko Mladic…had promised safety to a group of refugees
being held at a soccer field, a U.S. official said, speaking on condition of
anonymity. But men and boys were later loaded onto trucks and driven to a site
half-mile (sic) from the soccer field, where they were lined up in groups of 20
to 25 and machine-gunned, the official said.” Secretary of State Warren
Christopher’s daily intelligence briefings have not disclosed “any intelligence
imagery that could confirm massacres.” [Bro[Brock: But within a week after the Croat
government unleashed a vicious campaign to cleanse hundreds of thousands of
Serbs from the Krajina, Madeleine Albright diverted media attention by waving
eight satellite photos of mounds of dirt which, she said, were mass graves
containing Muslims at Srebrenica.]

Significantly, Operation Storm — carried out with massive US support
including from Military Professional Resources, Inc., “a Pentagon contractor
made up of retired US generals and combat experts [who[who]ined the Croats” — was referred to
by the ICTY as the most brutal event in the Balkans since World War
II
, as related in a March 21, 1999 NY Times article. But notice
how since that time, that distinction has been shifted to the very event that
Albright sought to displace Storm with. So that today, there is no phrase
repeated more often, more loudly or in more places than “Srebrenica, the worst
atrocity since WWII.” And so the lie has become the truth.
