Excerpt from report by Serbian private independent news agency FoNet
Belgrade — The Islamic Community of Serbia (IZS) today condemned the unilateral declaration of Kosovo independence as an act of political violence, which may deepen divisions among peoples, and it urged Islamic countries to take into account the needs of the Islamic community living in Serbia when they make up their mind over this issue.
“As a community of Muslims whose home is Serbia, we condemn any act of political violence that may further deepen gaps and divisions among peoples of the world,” the [chief] Mufti of the Islamic Community of Serbia, Muhamed Jusufspahic, said.
“A unilateral declaration of Kosovo independence is really what this is. With it, many countries, members of the Organization of Islamic Countries, would face trials and tribulations, the same or similar ones,” Jusufspahic assessed.
As he put it, “we also condemn the violence in Serbia’s streets perpetrated by fans, and we call on the people of Serbia to be reasonable and wise.
Places of prayer should not be set on fire, let them cheer our state and its interests in a dignified and non-violent manners”.
“Serbia’s youths, let us not ever ruin our own things any more,” Jusufspahic said on behalf of the IZS.
The Islamic Community of Serbia advised Islamic countries in the region to refrain from comments, “because it is in our interest to live in accord with our Orthodox, Christian neighbours”.
Responding to journalist questions about the support of the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) to Kosovo’s independence, Jusufspahic called on this organization to alter this decision.
Commenting on the possibility of riots, Jusufspahic said that mosques were well guarded.
That’s right. Well-guarded mosques in Serbia. Got that?
Meanwhile, it’s clear here that many Serbian Muslims never got with the jihad program, in which case I highly recommend these Slavs convert back to Orthodoxy, before they confuse any more Mulims — such as the OIC ones that they think they have something in common with.
But what is it about Serbia that keeps even a Muslim loyal? And what is it about an Albanian-run Kosovo that has these Muslims terrified? And what is it about Bosnia that has this human-rights Muslim crying foul?
Only the radical region of Sandzak in southern Serbia (itself with secessionist goals) doesn’t have any loyalty to the infidel society it’s part of. Though, gee, this sure was an interesting title coming from a Sandzak radical in October:
“Muslim leaders haven’t been treated like this in a hundred years”:
Sandzak Muslims say police raided mosque
Leaders of the Islamic community in Novi Pazar [southern Serbia] say a group of policemen allegedly attacked imams in Sjenica last night.
A statement from the Meshihat, or the seat of the Islamic Community organization, says that some 30 officers allegedly raided a mosque using force, and removed “a high Islamic delegation” from the building, physically assaulting its members and several worshipers.
The Novi Pazar Meshihat chief is mufti Muamer Zukorlic, who advocates Serbia Muslims’ organizational ties with the Sarajevo [Bosnia] Islamic Center.
Another group, which believes that the center for Serbian Muslims must be Belgrade, gathered around Belgrade mufti Hamdija Jusufspahic, decided to relieve Zukorlic of his duties earlier last week, but he received backing at home in an Islamic Community meeting in Novi Pazar Saturday.
The tensions among the two groups have been running high, and yesterday police confiscated weapons and made several arrests in another mosque in the region, this time in Prijepolje.
“We express our deepest indignation and most serious protest over such behavior on the part of the police, as the Islamic officials have not been treated in this way for a hundred years.”
So they’ve been treated…well…by the genocidal Serb “nationalists” and cleansers.
