Dateline Sarajevo, Bosnia, Europe – 2017: The only Nobel Laureate from Yugoslavia, Ivo Andric, a Catholic Bosnian of either Serb or Croat heritage, once opined very deeply about the mental reality of Bosnia and Herzegovina region dividing Serbia and Croatia:
“Four religions live on this narrow hilly and scarce piece of land [Bosnia], each of which is exclusive and strictly separated from the rest. All live under one sky and the same country, but each of these four groups has the heart of their spiritual life far away, in the other world in Rome, in Moscow, in Constantinople, in Mecca, in Jerusalem, or God himself knows where – just not there where he was born and where will die. And each of them thinks that her goodness and her benefit are conditioned by the damage and the insinuation of each of the three other religions and that their progress can only be at its expense, and each of them has made the greatest virtue from intolerance, and everyone expects salvation from outside, and each from the opposite direction.”
In his work that earned him the Nobel Prize For Literature (The Bridge On The Drina), Andric described vividly the evils that the Moslem occupation of this rugged corner of Europe had wrought, including the method of khazouk, wherewith the Christians were impaled at the stakes for daring to resist the Turks – who were the chief defenders of Islam during the later Middle Ages period. In his quote above (taken from his doctoral dissertation), Andric is describing the way in which the locals victimize themselves by placing themselves at the center of disputes and wars of the big powers with whom they selectively find common cause. And all this just to overcome a vast and congenital inferiority complex!
It is this mental deficiency, I believe, that has reared yet again its ugly head to act as a broker for a firesale of the Bosnian land that is given hand over fist to non-Slavic Moslem foreigners, the Arabs who come there on a jihad known to them only. Meanwhile, the provincial Bosnian salesmen bask in Arab oil’s silver currency that the Moslem Judas has brought to Sarajevo.
Bottom line: future terrorists are nesting in the Islamic incubator of Bosnia centered in Sarajevo for future use inside the EU – after the disastrous decision to bring over Bosnia into the EU will have been made by socialist European bureaucrats. The Arabs and their offspring expect to spring into Europe from Bosnia at some point in the future. It is all part and parcel of the islamization of Europe agenda.
Arabs Are Purchasing Bosnian Land Chiefly From Serbs In A Massive Undertaking For Reasons Unknown
It is mainly land owned by citizens of Serbian nationality, while there are also individual cases that the land was sold by Bosniaks and Croats. The number of citizens from Arab countries visiting BiH (‘Bosnia and Herzegovina’) is growing year after year, and many of them buy and develop the real estate across the country, where numerous “Arab settlements” have already been built.
In the area of Ilijas municipality in the vicinity of Sarajevo in the past few years, the Arabs have purchased between 3,000 and 3,500 dulums, or about 350 hectares of land.
The land price per square meter is therefore over 50% higher, which, according to the head of the municipality, Akif Fazlic, is a real problem for the local population who wants to buy land for the construction of residential houses.
– The positive side is that the budget of the municipality is higher. Based on real estate sales last year, we collected nearly EUR 1 million, and about 70 percent, or about 700,000 euros, was derived from Arab investors – Fazlic told Tanjug.
We also have income from paying rent and editing construction land, so it also increases our budget, he added.
Asked what is the interest of Arab investors to buy land in BIH, he says his assessment is that they want to spend a part of it on a short vacation, at most staying only for a few months, keeping in mind the arid climate in their home country in the Middle East.
He says there are individual cases among the residents of this municipality who complain about the arrival of Arabs, stating that “dilemmas” always exist.
“We all think about these dilemmas, though I’m always looking at the world’s processes, and they show that we have more and more migration and more open-minded real estate markets,” he said.
We will see that this process is positive and I hope that it will not have any other connotations, he says, adding that there are mechanisms if there are different connotations to stop them. It notes that the state should also play its part.
Fazlic explains that land in Sarajevo Canton is being purchased for shopping centers and hotels, and in the vicinity of the weekend settlements. One weekend settlement, says, was already built in the municipality of Ilijas.
– Many more locations have been purchased, and they are in the procedures of granting, issuing permits and all that is needed for these settlements, their investors are leading the process of construction and then selling on the real estate market and facilities – says Fazlic.
The residents of the Municipality of Ilijas have noticed a growing sale of real estate in the past five years, and they react differently. They note that they do not have problems with their new neighbors, but their growing presence is “enigmatic”.
“What I know, it’s interesting, all of a sudden, we do not know why they are buying, are they so rich and investing in real estate? The real reason is not known. In our municipality they buy enough, settlements are built, villages with 30, 40 houses. They settle down, they buy apartments – says one of the residents.
University professor and analyst Enver Kazaz believes that much more Arabs go to tourist destinations across Europe than in BiH, and that some Arab countries invest significantly more, for example, in Serbia than in BiH.
– BIH is alive because it is traditionally emerging as a country where there is a danger of some kind of political Islam. Arab tourists who come here and leave money are simply the victims of such a stigmatization, and on the other hand, those who are rich and buy land through illegal firms need not be spared by BiH law – said Kazaz Tanjugu.
Nedžad Latić, editor of the portal “The Bosnia Times”, believes that the motive for those who buy real estate is the predisposition for citizenship, because they expect BiH to join the EU.
– This is roughly the motive of the majority who are buying, but it is most likely that they were wiped out and that they are some virtual projects. There is no substantial investigation yet, he told the Serbian newsagency “Tanjug”.
It also says that some of the projects have been implemented and that they are closed-type settlements. Bosnian media report that the massive purchase of property for Arab citizens was checked by security agencies in BiH at the end of last year.
An investigation conducted by the Foreign Affairs Service, which operates in the Ministry of Security of BiH, has determined that such transactions involve a large number of “phantom” companies that have minimal initial capital and invest large sums of money.
In December, 691 agencies were involved in dealing with such transactions, and even 499 were not found at the registered addresses. The official number of data shows that the number of Arab arrivals in BiH is increasing.
Referring to the Border Police data, Dnevni Avaz announced that 42,627 Arabs entered BiH in the last seven months, mostly from Emirates 19,887 and then from Kuwait 11,103.
Saudi Arabia’s citizens numbered 9,385, while Qatar accounted for 1,531 for the first seven months. At least they came from Jordan – 721.
According to the data of tourist boards, they are written by the Bosnian media, they stay on average five to ten days, while they do not have the number of rent or coupons to stay for up to a month.
