More Muslim fury directed at proud dhimmis (which, of course, is an oxymoron). “Muslims furious at anthem and symbols adopted by Bosnian Serbs,” by Daniel McLaughlin, for the Irish Times, July 17:
BOSNIA: BOSNIA’S MUSLIMS are furious with the country’s Serb republic for adopting an anthem and emblems that allegedly glorify Serb nationalism and undermine what precious little ethnic harmony still exists in the divided country.
Amid Western efforts to integrate the two “entities” and strengthen a central, multi-ethnic administration in Sarajevo, a court ruled in 2006 that the anthems and symbols used by each should reflect equally Bosnia’s Muslim, Croat and Serb communities.
The new anthem adopted by the local parliament in Republika Srpska makes no mention of Bosnia however, and on the coat of arms approved by legislators the traditional Serb eagle and lion tower over puny Muslim and Croatian emblems.
Definitely no sign of dhimmitude here—hence the “furious Muslims.”
Muslim MPs accused their Serb colleagues of nationalism and discrimination, and vowed to challenge the adoption of the coat of arms and the anthem called “My Republic”, which tells of a “country of the shining sun, where honourable and good people live”.
