The AFP reported last month that there was an explosion at the grave of Bosnia’s wartime president and Muslim hero Alija Izetbegovic. Izetbegovic, who was finally, reluctantly, being investigated by the Hague for war crimes against Serbs and others at the time of his death, is buried in a “martyrs’” cemetery, as he requested.
Naturally, we are meant to think that the grave bombing was committed by a Serb or Serbs, especially with AFP adding this tidbit: “Tensions have risen in Bosnia in recent days after the broadcast of footage showing a former Muslim general, Atif Dudakovic, ordering his troops to burn down Serb villages at the end of the country’s 1992-1995 war.” And this one: “Bosnian Serbs, however, are strongly antagonistic about Izetbegovic, whom they accuse of war crimes.” And this: “Bosnian Serb officials remained silent about the incident.”
The attack “drew strong condemnation from Muslim leaders and the international community’s top envoy in Bosnia, Christian Schwarz-Schilling, who called for calm and said he felt ’shocked and saddened’.”
Here’s the update that AFP didn’t carry; only Serbia’s traditionally anti-Serb, Soros-funded “B92? news agency had it: B92 cited local daily Nezavisne Novine, which reported that police have arrested Rahim Amulj, a Muslim, in connection with the bombing. He was already a suspect in three explosions in November in a Bosnian town called Travnik. From B92: “Ramulj, who had confessed to placing the three bombs in Travnik, was set free due to the Municipal court’s error. In May 1999 he was convicted, along with six others, to three and a half years in prison for mining Croatian homes and placing explosive devices in front of the Bugojno Municipal council chairman Ivo Mrša’s house.”
Let’s recall that last year bombs were found at the Srebrenica memorial for Muslims killed in the Bosnia war. In that case, too, evidence pointed toward a Bosnian-Muslim, and a man was arrested and later released because of a lack of evidence. It was yet another anti-Serb frame-up — happening while Fox News mimicked every other news outlet on the planet in broadcasting footage of Bosnian-Serb paramilitary killing six Muslim fighters — to somehow prove that another 8,000 were killed the same way, and to reinforce the same old propaganda we swallowed throughout the 90s.
And in 1995, we bombed the Bosnian Serbs when Bosnian Muslims bombed the Markale marketplace.
Meanwhile, Albanian Muslims have pretended to be Serbs while on missions to attack UN installations, as former UN Major General Lewis MacKenzie wrote in 2004.
