Kosovo is Albanian Jerusalem, Not Serbia’s

Yes, it’s only too true that Kosovo is Jerusalem, but Albanian Jerusalem, not Serbia’s at all. That it belongs to Serbia is a big Serbian lie which is alive since 1912 when Serbia by its terror and genocide annexed and colonized Albanian Kosovo. [See: Noel Malcolm, Kosovo A Short History, 1999].

But Vuk Jeremic, former Minister for Foreign Affairs of Serbia and ex-Chairman of the United Nation General Assembly (June 2012- September 2013) declared that “This place, Kosovo, is our Jerusalem; you just can’t treat it any other way than our Jerusalem.” [See: The New York Times, 01.15.2010].

This is the biggest historical, political and diplomatic lie which said in Belgrade by former Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic, that “Kosovo is Serbs Jerusalem!”

French Philosopher, Andre Glucksmann

French Philosopher, Andre Glucksmann upheld the NATO action to bomb Milosevic’s Serbia in March 24 of the 1999.

That Serbs are big liars and racists, it’s worth it to quote the French prominent philosopher Andre Glucksmann, who in his an interview for the Montenegro newspaper “Dani” (104), said : “When Serbs say, they are innocent, they express their extreme racism.” – [www.bhdani.ba]

André Glucksmann was one of the most well known of the French philosophers (1937-2015), or “French George Orwell” as he was called by French and European philosophical elites , “he opposed Serbian genocide in Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo as well as he expressed his support for the war in Iraq in 1991 and 2003 when the U.S. purportedly tried to oust Saddam Hussein from Iraq. He agreed in 1999 when the North Atlantic Treaty Organization decided to use armed forces in Serbia as well as he stood up for the Chechens against Vladimir Putin’s Moscow.” [english.donga.com]

Serbia’s Lie Has No Legs

However, it’s not a new thing to be surprised and nothing to be worried about either. Based on Dobrica Cosic’s (Former President of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia 1992-1993) philosophic political definition that a lie is the Serb’s natural, ethical, professional, normal and obsession justified life act. “A lie, trait of our patriotism. We lie to deceive ourselves, to console others, we lie for mercy, we lie to fight fear, to encourage ourselves, to hide our and somebody else’s misery. We lie for love and honesty. We lie because of freedom. Lying is a trait of our patriotism and the proof of our innate intelligence. We lie creatively, imaginatively and inventively.” [See: wikipedia.org]

Also, famous Serbian nationalist writer and academic Dobrica Cosisic, said :“A lie is Serbian state interest. A lie is on Serb self-being. At last, each lie in Serbia become truth. Through up to now history, Serbs have been escaped themselves many times thanks to their lie.” [www.antipropaganda.xyfilms.net]

But Serbs have forgotten a very important thing that in human beings life and politics too, there is nothing for ever, everything is relative and changeable (like the weather). Except, apparently, Serbs lies, racism and ethnocentrism toward their neighbors such as Albanians, Croatians, Bosnian Muslims etc., in order to grab their territories and to destroy them systematically, biologically and physically from their indigenous lands by centuries.

This is one of the main reasons why noone in the world should believe Serbs and Serbia because they’re unimproved liars and racists. They have never been democrats and peaceful people in Balkans, only predators and nefarious men toward Croatians, Albanians and Bosnian Muslims intently to annex and colonize their autochthonous territories in the name of the re-enlargement of the Great Serbia. That was the reason why Serbia and paranoid Serbs lead by Slobodan Milosevic (influenced and pushed by Serbian Academy of Science and Arts in Belgrade, and by Serbian Orthodox Church) executed the three last aggressions and genocides against Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo (1991-1999). And, after that Serbian Government, Serbian Orthodox Church and Serbs try impudently to blame and accuse Croatians, Bosnian Muslims and Albanians for their dirty and inhuman wars against all of them.

Kosovo Is Albanian Legal Property, Not Serbian

This is a truth by reason of, historically, Kosovo was a Serbian classic colony in the heart of Europe(1912-1999), not at all Serbs provocative “Jerusalem” as Serbia’s foreign minister avows in his interview given to the New York Times’ correspondent in Belgrade Nicholas Kulish, published in the New York Times, January 15, 2010.

Kosovo is actually Albania’s Jerusalem in the Balkans, but not Serbs’ at all.

However, Jeremic’s political comparison of Kosovo with Jerusalem is his biggest mendacity and mistake because of the fact that historically Kosovo has been and still is a legal part of the Ethnic Albania (not of the “Great Albania,” made by ideologists and makers of Great Serbia/Velika Serbia/ such as was Ilija Garasanin with his Great Serbian Nationalistic Project “Nacertanija” of 1844).

Serbian former Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic could consider himself a genius in Serbian diplomacy and politics. If so, that’s his problem, I don’t give a hoot, but as regards the Kosovo issue he still doesn’t have any valuable elementary acknowledgement. Otherwise he wouldn’t have said “Kosovo is Serbs Jerusalem, or Kosovo is Serbs cradle and soul,” on account of historically and legally Kosovo belong to Ethnic Albania and Native Albanians in the Balkans.

If Vuk Jeremic pretends to be a good Serbian diplomat and good European democrat and realist, first of all he must learn much more Balkans history, especially Albanian, Croatian and Bosnian Muslim’s history which through the centuries has been written wrong, and misinterpreted by Serbian quasi state politics, scientific and the Serbian Orthodox Church as well. Their intention is to erase and hide any trace of the historical truth of Albanians, Croatians and Bosnian Muslims in the Balkans.

Lastly, Serbia’s foreign minister Vuk Jeremic, must know the fact that after Serbia’s aggression and genocide in Kosovo (1989-1999) a Serb’s lie doesn’t work any more. That is because it has no legs as a historical, political, diplomatic, propagandistic, juristic and scientific valuable argument. Kosovo got its independence and sovereignty on February 17, 2008, recognized by the United States and European Union, and an

Kosovo Is Albanian Legal Property, Not Serbian

other 111 countries of the international community.

In this case neither the United States nor European Union made any legal mistake but they acted according to the historical law of Albanians upon Kosovo, and international law, also.

Now, Serbia, lead by it’s president Tomislav Nikolic and Vuk Jeremeic the former foreign minister and current contender for Secretary-General of the United Nations in 2017, could activate and intensify any their POSTFESTUM diplomatic battle to bring back Kosovo under Serbia’s colonial sovereignty (1912-1999), or at least to divide Albanian Kosovo, importing a Cyprus-like scenario, but this unreal and non-pragmatic Great Serbian scenario won’t be acceptable by Washington or Brussels diplomacy nor by Pristina’s Albanian diplomacy.

Apart from Serbia’s desire still to hold Kosovo entire as its colony, or to split northern Kosovo, there won’t beand any kind of international debates related to Kosovo’s political status because it was closed for the United States and European Union in February 17, 2008.
