Neo-Nazis selling weapons in Kosovo

According to the German daily "Mitteldeutsche Zeitung", Frank Kerkhoff, the former head of the radical right wing National Democratic Party of Germany for the Saxony-Anhalt region, and Harald Bornschain, a weapons dealer and neo-Nazi activist, opened the business with offices in Djakovica and Magdeburg.

Success of Radical Party in Serbia consequence of wrong policy of EU and U.S towards Serbia-Montenegro

Despite some positive incentives from the EU and the admission of Serbia-Montenegro to the Council of Europe the two main generators of disappointment for ordinary Serbs remained - the pro-Albanian international policy in Kosovo and one-sided approach of the Hague Tribunal based on the so called "Serbian collective guilt".

The recent success of the Radical party, still formally headed by the Hague Tribunal prisoner Dr. Vojislav Seselj, was not a particular surprise for many Balkans political analysts. The program of radicals is in fact more based on criticism of the democratic block which took the power after toppling Milosevic regime than on any constructive program of economic and institutional revitalization of the country. After the Milosevic's arrest ordinary Serbs expected that the West would sincerely support new Democratic Serbian Government and change the its previous policy towards Belgrade which was based on collective punishment of the Serbian people. Despite some positive incentives from the EU and the admission of Serbia-Montenegro to the Council of Europe the two main generators of disappointment for ordinary Serbs remained - the pro-Albanian international policy in Kosovo and one-sided approach of the Hague Tribunal based on the so called "Serbian collective guilt".

More than four years after the separatist insurrection of KLA and the subsequent NATO bombing campaign against Serbia and its people the policy of some countries towards Belgrade in respect to its southern Province of Kosovo has not significantly changed. Serbs are still being killed in Kosovo, their churches vandalized and their property usurped. Despite UNSCR 1244 Kosovo has not been constituted as a substantial autonomy within FRY (i.e. Serbia and Montenegro) but has become a quasi-independent State. Although the UN Resolution contained concrete standards which should be fulfilled in order to launch the final status settlement, completely new revision of the Resolution has been recently made in order to override Serbia's sovereignty over its southern Province. Kosovo Albanians seem to be still seen as allies of the West although the tiny Province with almost no functioning economy and highly developed network of organized crime, drug smuggling and prostitution links hardly gives any hopes of becoming a part of Europe one day. It is clear to every economic expert that Kosovo is not economically sustainable and that in case of its independence from Serbia the main "industry" would be organized crime. "The Heroin republic", as some journalists already call it, would be a gateway to Europe not only for drug smugglers but also for terrorists. It is no secret that organized crime creates a fertile ground for springing of terrorist groups, particularly in predominantly Muslim territories such as Kosovo and Bosnia. Serbs in Kosovo feel to be left to themselves and failed through their participation in Kosovo institutions to essentially improve their situation. Kosovo provisional institutions have proved to be nothing but a smoke-screen behind which Kosovo Albanians continue with ethnic discrimination and repression while the Constitutional framework does not offer any efficient mechanism for preventing adoption of discriminatory decissions.

At the same time destabilization of the neighboring FYR Macedonia has already progressed. The Western part of the country can hardly be considered a territory which is under full control of Skopje. At the same time ethnic Albanian minorities in South-east Serbia (Presevo valley) and eastern Montenegro are more and more inclined to see their future in joining Greater Kosovo which is seen by Albanian nationalists as a beacon of pan-Albanian unity. The West in the eyes of ordinary Serbs seems to be either helpless to prevent further expansion of Albanian extremism or is suspected of supporting Greater Albanian claims for certain other reasons. The policy of those Serbs who agreed to participate in institutions and the readiness of the Orthodox Church to support Parliamentary elections are seen now as futile attempts to offer a hand of friendship and cooperation and it is very possible that the Serb Coalition POVRATAK will reconsider its participation in the institutions, particularly now when they will not be too much pressed by Belgrade to stay in them.

On the other hand the promises of the Hague Tribunal and Mrs. Del Ponte that the crimes of the former KLA leaders will be duly investigated and punished have proved to be nothing but a propaganda decoy to justify additional arrest warrants against the leading Serbian generals, most of whom are suspected of war crimes only because they were on leading positions at that time. If that logic were followed in the Albanian case then immediate arrest warrants could be issued against Thaci, Haradinaj, Ceku and other former KLA leaders who still enjoy immunity in Kosovo as "democratic leaders". Even the Interpol arrest warrants which were officially accepted by the Interpol HQ against Thaci, Ceku and Haradinaj seem to be unilaterally ignored by the UNMIK authorities who intervened on behalf of Kosovo Albanian leaders despite all international laws and standards.

In short, such one-sided and openly pro-Albanian policy of UNMIK, some Western countries and the Hague Tribunal has demonstrated to Serbs that the same measures of justice do not stand for Serbs and Albanians, not to mention Bosniaks and Croats. The Hague Tribunal is seen by majority of Serbs as a tool of justifying blunders of Clinton's administration and the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia without Security Council permission. 

Now the world politics scene seems to be radically changed. The main boogeyman is no longer in the Balkans but in the Middle East. It is exactly from their former Muslim protégées that NATO troops and diplomats may expect possible threat in the Balkans which Al Qaida would like to use as a springboard towards Europe, particularly after September 11. However, many Serbs still think that the Western support of Balkan Muslims and their separatist movements is a way to make a balance with no so Muslim-friendly policy of the West in the Middle East.

The only way to strengthen the democratic block in Serbia and regain the confidence of democratically oriented Serbs would be a more balanced policy of the West in Kosovo as well as more objective work of the Hague Tribunal. Any support of secession of Kosovo from Serbia would lead the Balkans to further instabilities and wars. The fragile peace in Bosnia and FYR Macedonia will be at stake too. Only strong support to the idea of self-determination of ethnic communities within democratic framework of existing countries in form of wider autonomous regions might be a way to prevent further instability. Otherwise, radicalization in Serbia can trigger additional regional problems and seriously obstruct process of European integration of the entire Western Balkans.

Controversies regarding attack on Russians in Decani continue
Today the ERP KIM Info-Service has received reliable information from UNMIK sources that several Kosovo Albanian individuals from Decani confirmed that they were eyewitnesses of the attack on the UN bus with Russian and Serb passengers. However Kosovo Police Service (which in Decani Municipality consists only of ethnic Albanians) denied that there had been any stoning.

Independence of Kosovo does not resolve problems
Summary of the report by  the German Institute for International and Security Affairs

Analysis gives little cause for optimism: Kosovo will still have to fight a long time with difficult structural, political and social-economic challenges, while at the same time the political elites in Serbia and Kosovo show little readiness to give constructive policy proposals. The premature recognition of the independence of Kosovo (or any other final status solution) could not solve the substantial institutional, constitutional as well as development and safety problems of the Province. Therefore, is to be feared that the province will remain dependent on international help a long time. Moreover, it remains doubtful whether and when Kosovo will be able to jump on the train to European integration. Therefore German and European policy will have to adjust accordingly for the long haul in the south Balkans.

Today the ERP KIM Info-Service has received reliable information from UNMIK sources that several Kosovo Albanian individuals from Decani confirmed that they were eyewitnesses of the attack on the UN bus with Russian and Serb passengers. The condemnation of this attack has already been issued by the chief of UNMIK while the Russian TV showed the video footage of the stoning in the center of Decani town. The Russian and Serbs who were in the attacked bus confirmed that several kilometers away from Decani, near Pec, they had to change the vehicle and continued traveling in a police transporter because of the cold temperature in the bus with a broken window.

However Kosovo Police Service (which in Decani Municipality consists only of ethnic Albanians) denied that there had been any stoning. We are  enclosing the report from Pristina Albanian language daily "Zeri"

KPS Said That Nobody Attacked The Bus In Decani

09 Jan (Zeri) – Kosovo Police Service in Decani disproved information for regarding the bus containing the Serbs and Russians that were going to Decani monastery that were stoned while it was passing the center of town.

KPS Spokesman, Ramadan Boshtraj explained that UNMIK police and KFOR troops escorted the bus and none of the officials informed of any attack.

"That is not true. During the entire escort of the convoy, police didn't notice even the smallest provocation," said Boshtraj.

He added that the convoy passed through the center of Decani precisely at 1220, at the time when the residents were expecting the visit of Head Administrator, Harri Holkeri in front of the municipal administration.

"Nothing was noticed and no sign was at the place of the event. The convoy went towards Peja under police protection without any problem," confirmed Ramadan Boshtraj.

Two activists from the German neo-Nazi scene have opened a business in Kosovo whose activities include, among other things, the sale of weapons.
 
According to the daily "Mitteldeutsche Zeitung", Frank Kerkhoff, the former head of the radical right wing National Democratic Party of Germany for the Saxony-Anhalt region, and Harald Bornschain, a weapons dealer and neo-Nazi activist, opened the business with offices in Djakovica and Magdeburg.
 
The paper's claims were confirmed by the Office for the Protection of the Constitutional Order of the Federal Province of Saxony-Anhalt based in Magdeburg.
 
According to the paper, Kerkhoff and Bornschain, together with a citizen of Kosovo, direct the Albacon Company.
 
According to the state security of Saxony-Anhalt, the company is active in the areas of transportation and tourism but also services in the weapons field which are formally declared as services intended for hunters.
 
The Office for the Protection of the Constitutional Order, the paper writes, "is carefully following the activities of the two right wing extremists in Kosovo and their possible further ties with Germany".
 
However, neither the federal state security service nor the regional Office for the Protection of the Constitutional Order have jurisdiction over developments abroad even if German citizens are involved in them.

Connections of Kosovo Albanian nationalists (Balli Kombetar) and Nazis in the Second World War were very well documented in historical sources. The ethnic Albanian Skenderbeg SS division committed gruesome crimes against the Serb, Jewish and Slav Macedonian population in Kosovo and North FYR Macedonia.

In fact, one of the first acts of the SS Skanderbeg division in April 1944 was the arresting of 281 Jews in Pristina, and "510 Jews, Communists, Partisans and individual suspects". According to Bernard J. Fischer, writing in Albania at War, 1939-1945 (Purdue University Press, West Lafayette, Indians, USA, 1999, p. 187). All 281 Jews were deported to Germany - probably to Bergen-Belsen death camp.... The Jewish population of Yugoslavia today is estimated to be 2500 with most of them living in Belgrade. The recent conflict in Kosovo has ironically led to the exodus of the last of the remaining Jews of Kosovo - something that didn't even happen in the last war in 1941.

Kosovo in 2004:
Options for German and European policy

SWP study in 2004 / S 01, January, 2004, 31 sides(pages) By Marie-Janine Calic

During the last months of 2003 the pressure has increased to achieve a long-term stable political solution for Kosovo. The criticism by the Kosovars of UNMIK is growing, new ethnic violence is shaking the region, and the foreign policy interests of the international community is turning toward other crisis centers. What are the prospects for the democratic and constitutional consolidation of the Province? Which are the chances of achieving the goal of the international community for a multiethnic society? What economic opportunities present themselves?

What are the interests and initiatives pursued by the main players in Prishtina and Belgrade? And finally: where is the starting point for a realistic European policy?

Optionen deutscher und europäischer Politik

SWP-Studie 2004/S 01, Januar 2004, 31 Seiten von Marie-Janine Calic

In den letzten Monaten des Jahres 2003 hat sich der Druck verstärkt, eine langfristig tragfähige politische Lösung für Kosovo zu suchen. Die Kritik der Kosovaren an UNMIK wächst, neue ethnische Gewalt erschüttert die Region, und das außenpolitische Interesse der Staatengemeinschaftet driftet zu anderen Krisenherden. Welche Aussichten bestehen für die demokratische und rechtsstaatliche Konsolidierung der Provinz? Welche Chancen hat das von der Staatengemeinschaft verfolgte Ziel einer multi-ethnischen Gesellschaft? Welche wirtschaftlichen Perspektiven stellen sich? Welche Interessen und Ansätze verfolgen die Hauptakteure in Prishtina und Belgrad? Und letztlich: An welchen Punkten könnte europäische Politik realistischerweise ansetzen?

Die Analyse gibt wenig Anlaß zu Optimismus: Kosovo wird noch lange Zeit mit tiefgreifenden strukturellen, politischen und sozialökonomischen Herausforderungen zu kämpfen haben; gleichzeitig zeigen die politischen Eliten in Serbien und Kosovo wenig Bereitschaft zu konstruktiven Politikansätzen. Eine frühzeitige Anerkennung der Unabhängigkeit Kosovos (oder jede andere endgültige Statuslösung) könnte die substantiellen institutionellen, rechtsstaatlichen sowie entwicklungs- und sicherheitspolitischen Probleme der Provinz nicht lösen. Daher ist zu befürchten, daß die Provinz noch lange Zeit von internationaler Hilfe abhängig sein wird. Zudem bleibt fraglich, ob und wann das Land je auf den europäischen Integrationszug wird aufspringen können. Deutsche und europäische Politik wird sich folglich darauf einstellen müssen, auf dem südlichen Balkan einen langen Atem zu beweisen.

(...)

On Thursday, I received a "Congressional Human Rights Caucus," on "The Future of Albanians in Montenegro," a congressional briefing on the alleged plight of Albanians in Montenegro. I have seen nothing from this congressional caucus, co-chaired by Wolf and Tom Lantos (D-CA) regarding the Serbian population of Kosovo which has been decimated by murder and ethnic cleansing. I invite you to read one of the many updates (below) to Congressman Wolf regarding our intervention in the Balkans, our stand against a Christian people and our pro stand for the Muslims. I sometimes scratch my head in wonderment! What in God's name are we doing supporting the enemies of Christ? The list of witnesses at the briefing includes "The Honorable Joe DioGuardi," [if I am not mistaken, he is of Albanian descent] former Congressman from New York who, along with Bob Dole in 1987, received $50,000 and $1.2 million respectively from an Albanian fund raiser in New York. DioGuardi is also a paid lobbyist for the Albanians. Shirley Cloyes, another witness is Joe DioGuardi's wife. Where is there a "witness" for the Montenegrins? Wolf, today, aligns himself with Tom Lantos whose hatred of the Serbs is equaled only to that of Hitler's hatred of the Jews.

It now appears that Congressman Wolf is once again sticking his nose into the situation in Montenegro, a province that along with Serbia is all that's left of the former Yugoslavia. Again, Wolf has taken a position in opposition against a Christian people who are fighting the same Albanian terrorists that the Serbs encountered over a decade ago. What right do we have in taking land from other people and giving it to their enemy, which is what we did to the Serbs when we supported Osama bin Laden's Kosovo Liberation Army mafia?


Albanian American Civic League led by Joe DioGuardi and Shirly Cloyes
is one of main centers of promotion of Albanian nationalist and chauvinist ideas

What is this love affair that the West has with Islam? Our President, speaking from the White House during Ramadan, calls Islam a religion of charity, peace and compassion. Try telling that to the Christians who are being crucified in the Sudan. Secretary of State Powell has stated that we should bring in more clergy, more journalists and more educators from Islamic countries. Wasn't 9/11 enough for them? Do we want to make it easier for terrorists to come into our country to cause us further harm? Need I remind you that approval was given to the Saudi Arabian government to build their Islamic Saudi Academy? Everywhere Islam has gone there have been holy wars, i.e., jihad [the word, "jihad" is a concept of Mohammed]. Traditionally, Islam is spread by the sword. Why do you think there is a sword on the Saudi flag? Their holy war against Christendom has now come to our shores but they have an even greater weapon. They are using our democracy to change our society, our culture, our American way of life, and above all, to change this Christian nation into an Islamic one. Don't laugh. When we were in Saudi Arabia, one Saudi told George that the reason Allah gave Saudi Arabia the oil was to go out and spread Islam and we are already seeing the fruits of their spreading Islam in this country. When we were in the Soviet Union we saw large billboards proclaiming the goal of a totally communist world; in Saudi Arabia we saw almost identical billboards depicting an Islamic world. Just as communism cannot co-exist with any other political system, Islam cannot co-exist with any other religion. Daniel Pipes has an excellent piece called "Islam Conquering America." If you don't have it, I would be very happy to send it to you.

It is quite apparent that Congressman Wolf cares not a fig for the future of the few remaining Serbs in Kosovo, nor of their suffering, nor of their violent deaths at the hands of the Albanians - the recent machine gunning of Serbian youths while swimming in a river, or the brutal axe-murders of elderly Serbs - and the killings continue. Because of our intervention, Bosnia and Kosovo are economic and social basket cases contrary to what the people are being told. I regret that Congressman Wolf is part of this disgrace.

Why is this so important to me? It is because we betrayed an ally of two world wars, where over a million and a half were exterminated in Croatia's death camps [with the help of the Bosnian and Albanian Muslim] so brutally that even the German SS were appalled. An ally who rescued over 500 downed American pilots at great sacrifice to themselves. Their reward? We bombed the Hell out of them for 78 days based on alleged atrocities committed by Bosnian Muslim forces, to appease the Muslim world, and to promote a religion whose aim is to eventually obliterate all traces of Christianity. Consider that at one time, Syria, Egypt, and Lebanon to name a few were all Christian countries until the onslaught of Islam. In our schools today, Mohammed is in; Christ is out. Muslim children get a room to pray during school hours for the entire month of Ramada; Christian children cannot even bend their heads in prayer over their lunches.
