Dateline, Bujanovac, Serbia – 2017: The Albanian “fellaheen” are busy at work creating insecure no-go zones for native Christians in the countryside of southern Serbia where their armed men roam. They violate the spirit of the law which ensures safe passage for all citizens in a democratic country. But even in America and other western countries, there are virtual no-go ghetto zones in parts of the country. Is balkanization our future as well, here in the West?
It is a scandal for the West that after decades of blood-soaked investments of money and war material into the Balkans – the spirit of Christian-Muslim apartheid is at work in areas where “peaceful coexistence” was expected. The mainstream media in the West avoid the spotlight of these adverse developments in areas where they used to offer coverage every day with bombardments of stories and negative headlines about the Serbs to shape the public opinion against them as if that would ensure eternal peace!
Albanians have the money (which comes from various sources, some of which are ideological Islamic expansion money from the Middle East) and they are buying-off Christian homes in order to replace Christians with Muslims even in a once Christian country like Serbia. This means that jihad goes on…
The Divided City of Bujanovac Where Serbs & Albanians Do Not Mix But Share The Common Woe
Sometimes, through the center of Bujanovac, the Serbs passed through barely whispering to each other, today a middle-aged man is passing by, drinking a coffee in the only Serbian cafe “No1 Caffe” in a crowded square.
Social life, especially for the young of Bujanovac, takes place exactly in six cafes and their spacious gardens. In the Albanian language area, the Serbian language is not heard, only a minor Albanian speech is heard in Serbian.– We’re getting mixed up. We Serbs are not going over there. We do not even know why, perhaps the Albanians are sending our girls to us – say young Bujanovac, none of whom, like the older Serbs, want to be photographed nor want their names to be cited.
– It’s important that there are no incidents and conflicts. It’s calm, add our interlocutors.
Through the streets young Albanians are willing to talk.
– In the nineties, we rarely came to the center, it was informally prohibited zone. Now everything is different, but as far as I’m concerned, I hang out with the Serbs and I have many friends among them. This is a small place, we all know, and there is no reason to hate it – says Fljorin Agaj, a football soccer player from the local football club and a medical technician, currently unemployed, annoyed by the fact that Serbs do not care about Albanian shops.
Unlike the rest of Serbia, Bujanovac is not paying much attention to the turmoil in the neighborhood, in Macedonia, and on the inflammatory statements of one of the Albanian leaders, Jonuz Musli and Ramush Haradinaj.
– We only remember before the elections or when some politician Albanians murmur such a thing, so they are bumping over our back. And they did nothing to get people to be hired for jobs, hence the mass evictions of both Serbs and Albanians – the younger Serbs think, who still feel that Albanians are mainly employed in municipal administrations and enterprises.
– The biggest problem here is the lack of work, but also the problem that since 2000, the same people have been in power, without visions. And no one should look at the statements of Jonuz Musli because his party has no foothold in the electorate. Earlier he had eight councilors, in the next six, and at the last local only four. Statements about Greater Albania wanting to be at the center of attention because he is used to always be in power. If he is not in power, he will remain unemployed – says Arber Pajaziti, coordinator of the OO Alternative for Change (APN), a party founded by the recently-elected President of the Presevo municipality, Arifi Sceprim.
Jonuz Musliu, the President of the National Council of Albanians and the President of the Municipal Assembly of Bujanovac, was absent, and the Mayor of Shaip Kamberi was preparing for the trip, so he could not talk to us.
The leader of the group of citizens, Stojance Arsic, who has been in power for a short time since the mid-1990s, has a similar attitude to Pajaziti.
– The situation in Bujanovac is quite stable and safe and we do not think about the overflow of the conflicts from Macedonia to the south of Serbia. The only thing that can hit us is refugees if they escalate conflicts there. Otherwise, Musli does not believe in what he says because there is no change in borders, it is also guaranteed by the international community. There is no fear here, but for those who are very dejected, and sold their houses to Albanians for fabulous sums – says Arsic.
However, the older inhabitants of Bujanovac are not optimistic for young people and politicians.
– Experience has taught me that where there is smoke, there are also fires. That’s how that war started in Kosovo and that armed rebellion in the south of Serbia. First, the politicians stoked the fire, and afterwards they took up arms. Here in Bujanovac only one spark is enough to let the fire blaze. Because the dream of Greater Albania is older than us, and in Bujanovac and Preševo people are unemployed, and in the afternoon they come up with various ideas. And the old gentleman then tells the story of fresh strawberries at the local market.
Several middle-aged Serbs on the periphery of these towns say they do not have problems with their neighbors to the Albanians, but everyone is leading their lives in their own neighborhood.
