Pushing the trumped-up “Islamophobia” narrative in Bosnia. If Dodik is correct that CeriÄ‡ is trying to move Bosnia toward Sharia, here again we have expended American blood and treasure for another Sharia state — like Iraq and Afghanistan, both of which have U.S.-backed Constitutions that enshrine Sharia as the highest law.
“‘Bosnia moving toward Sharia law,'” from VeÄernje novosti via B92, December 20 (thanks to George):
BANJA LUKA — RS President Milorad Dodik says the leader of Bosnia’s Muslims, Mufti Mustafa CeriÄ‡, was “the main political figure among Bosniaks (Muslims)”.
The president of the Serb Republic (RS) deduced that this was “leading toward a creation of a Sharia state“.
“I have nothing against Bosniaks and Islam, I respect freedom of religion, but it is the desire of the Islamic Community in Bosnia-Herzegovina to direct political processes in the country that is completely unacceptable,” he said.
The president added that this community was attacking the RS and him personally, “to which I have a duty to react, as president and politician”.
This was Dodik’s response to announcements that came from the Islamic Community (IZ) in Bosnia-Herzegovina, that they would send a proposal to embassies of Islamic countries to declare him persona non-grata for his alleged activity to “spread Islamophobia”.
“The IZ statement is a political pamphlet of the lowest kind. It’s proof that Mustafa CeriÄ‡ is the leading political figure among Bosniaks, which is one step toward creating a Sharia state,” Dodik concluded.
