The churches that survived years of Mussolini and Hitler but could not survive a few MONTHS of Bill Clinton and his "humanitarians"!


Kosovo, the cradle of the Serbian civilization and culture is a sacred land dear to any Serbian heart just as Jerusalem is to the Jewish people. Hundreds of churches, built over centuries - the ancient ones from 14th, 13th, 12th or earlier centuries, or the newer ones - are witness to the Serbian suffering and glory. Many of the churches were labeled Unesco Class Zero - meaning: world beauty. They are not only monument to achievents of the ancient Serb culture but also treasure of the Mankind.

Over many centuries many different armies crossed Balkan. The peninsula is a netural bridge between Europe, Asia and Africa. All who wanted to be "Rullers or the World" felt they have to control Balkans. The armies wanted to bring (by force) their "more devine religion" (like the Turks) or "higher culture" (the Austrians) or simply impose the rule of the "hinger race" (the Nazi Germans). They all imposed those "higher" goods through murder and pillage... But the churches - remained. I guess they all wanted to keep Kosovo (and the Balkans) for ever. They wanted to keep it with all the values, all the beauty, all the loot.

Thus, these Christian churches survived 500 years of Islam (!) - the Turkish, Ottoman Empire. They survived years of Austro-Hungarian control (1915-1918) then years of Mussolini's rule (1941-1943) and years of Hitler's rule (1943-1945).

They are not surviving the few
MONTHS of the rule of "peacekeepers" who, after "humanitarian bombing" are imposing their "higher culture and higher moral values".

The Holy Trinity Cathedral in Djakovica after KFOR have "protected" it July 24, 1999.

Those with "higher moral values" are the worse.

The suffering of the Serbian and Roma people of Kosovo at hand of KFOR "peacekeepers" and their local proxies, the KLA, is beyond words. Mr. Jared Israel an I have interviewed a few women from the town of Orahovac. The town was converted into WWII-like ghetto for remaining Serbs and Roma people. Short excerpts from the interviews can be found at this link. Mass murder of the Serbs (but also Roma people, Jews, Gorani... even to Yugoslavia loyal Albanians), ethnic cleansing of all non-Albanians - all of it is the usual GENOCIDE repertoire. All of it have happened before in Kosovo - at hands of Turkish Empire, Mussolini and Hitler troops...

But no-one ever before dared try SYSTEMATIC DESTRUCTION, eradication of all the traces of the Serbian culture in Kosovo. The 16, supposedly Christian nations of NATO (+ Islamic Turkey) are presiding over this astonishing, diabolic plan. They watch as their local proxies - the KLA narco-traffickers go on with their job of dynamiting the ancient churches.

Do you now understand why we call NATO - SAVAGES!? What else can one call them? Their "peacekeeping" KFOR robes can not hide their primitive, devoid of any culture, minds.

In truly Orwellian fashion NATO officials are claiming that their main task in Kosovo is: to impose Western - "HIGHER MORAL VALUES."

We will present here a partial list of destroyed churches. Only 50 churches are listed. That is because the list is a few months old. It was issued in August 1999.

The main culprit - the U.S.A. is mostly silent about the astonishing savagery it is involved in. Nothing new - Pax Americana: you murder most of the aborigines, some you keep in reservations... and you destroy their shrines. In other words - you are spreading your "culture" and "civilization."

We will present a few rare articles published in the U.S.A. - that do mention the destruction. It is no surprise that the articles find all kind of excuses for the savagery.

Next: The American press mentions the destruction.
