Carl Savich sets the record straight on matters about which there has been a great deal of misinformation in Serbianna (thanks to Fraser). Be sure to click on the link, as this is a photo feature: there are many important photos there, including one of Bosnian Muslim President Izetbegovic, who was characterized as a moderate in the West, in a meeting with an al-Qaeda unit in Bosnia, and others of churches vandalized by Muslim troops, who painted the Islamic crescent (that’s right, the “crescent of embrace”) on the walls.
The Bosnian civil war that lasted from 1992 to 1995 was characterized by an unprecedented propaganda campaign by the US government and media. US propaganda portrayed the civil war as a barbaric assault by Orthodox Serbs against secular, tolerant, pluralist Muslims. Muslim ultra-nationalist demagogue Alija Izetbegovic was portrayed by US propaganda as a secular, democratic political leader.
In fact, Izetbegovic had formed a militant and radical Islamic political party in 1990, the SDA, Stranka Demokratska Akcija, the Party for Democratic Action, which was in fact an ultra-nationalist Islamic Party. What US propaganda concealed was the militant and radical nature of Islam that Izetbegovic espoused. Izetbegovic espoused a radical Muslim ultra-nationalism that rejected the secularism of Mustafa Kemal Pasha Ataturk. Everyone knew Alija Izetbegovic was a radical Muslim ultra-nationalist, except the US government, media, and sycophantic Western intelligentsia. It was a transparent case of self-delusion.
This Islamic intolerance was manifested in the systematic and planned destruction of Christian churches and Christian cemeteries in Srebrenica and throughout all of Bosnia. This destruction of Christian churches and cemeteries was stringently covered up in the US and in the West. The Bosnian Muslim assault on Christianity in the Balkans was suppressed by the US media and US government. What did they seek to conceal?
