Being Friendless in the Balkans...

By Julia Gorin
Monday, 18 Oct 2010


A news item caught our Board Member Julia Gorin's attention recently: "Controversial French General Philippe Morillon was expelled from the Memorial Center in Srebrenica when ... he went to pay his respects to the Bosnian Muslims killed during the civil war that engulfed Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 1990s..." There's more than meets the eye to the story, of course... 

A Decade of Serbia's Humiliation

By Srdja Trifkovic
Wednesday, 6 Oct 2010


On October 5, 2000, in a coup by the security forces staged against the backdrop of massive street protests, Slobodan Milošević was removed from power in Serbia. A decade later, the author says in ChroniclesOnlinemany of those who cheered his downfall at that time have nothing to celebrate.

Russia and NATO

The 1999 air war against the Serbs marked a decisive shift in NATO's mutation into a supranational force based on the doctrine of "humanitarian intervention." Its area of operations became unlimited, its "mandate" self-generated, and – as Dr. Trifkovic points out in a recent Russia Profile Experts Panel – its rationale remains as inherently Russophobic as ever.

[From Chronicles Online] Over the past eight years, Prime Minister Rejep Tayyip Erdoğan’s Islamist government and his AKP (Justice and Development Party) have successfully undermined Mustafa Kemal’s legacy and the character of the state founded upon that legacy. What remained, until last Sunday’s referendum, was an increasingly empty shell of constitutional secularism.

Arguing against the building of an Islamic shrine near New York’s Ground Zero, former U.S. vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin linked the mosque project to “building a Serbian Orthodox church at Srebrenica killing fields where Muslims were slaughtered.” Mrs. Palin is right to oppose the Ground Zero mosque. It is unacceptable, and detrimental to her cause, to invoke false parallels in the process, based on events of which she knows but very little.

Romania's Haradinaj

It is not only in Bosnia and Kosovo that cutthroats such as Ejup Ganić, Ramush Haradinaj, and Hashim Thaci receive the support of the “international community,” as long as they toe the line dictated by Brussels and Washington. A convicted murderer and terrorist is now a member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and an elected Romanian senator. 

ICJ Ruling: Blow to Serbia, Boon to Tadić

By Srdja Trifkovic
Thursday, 22 Jul 2010

For some years now Boris Tadić and his cohorts have been looking for a way to capitulate on Kosovo while pretending not to. The formula was simple: place all diplomatic eggs in one basket – that of the International Court of Justice – and refrain from using any other tools at Serbia’s disposal.

The Burden of the Soviet Past

By S. Trifkovic (Russia Panel)
Sunday, 18 Jul 2010


The distinction between Russia's legal inheritance and her moral responsibility needs to be reinforced by a reminder that the agents of Soviet oppression were primarily focused on destroying Russia’s faith, tradition, culture, and the millions of Russian people.
