BIN LADEN SUPPLIED KLA DURING THE KOSOVO WAR

Interpol believes that Osama bin Laden is linked to Albanian gangs who have taken over a growing web of crime across Europe. The investigations into organised crime links with his terrorist network also show that Mr bin Laden supplied one of his top military commanders for an elite KLA unit during the Kosovo conflict. ... Albanian heroin and gun trafficking gangs mushroomed during the Kosovo war and are becoming more powerful. They have taken control of 70 per cent of the heroin market in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Scandinavian countries.

Anti-Christian character of the Kosovo Albanian extremists within the KLA and similar sister organization is clearly visible in their systematic attempt to destroy all elements of Christian Orthodox culture on the territory where they rule, either in Kosovo or in Macedonia. Although they carefuly try to avoid open association with the Islamic millitancy Albanian extremists reveal their millitant Islamic attitude in their destruction of many churches and monasteries. So far not a single Albanian politician has publicly condemned destruction of Serb Orthodox heritage while the monasteries and churches remain under constant threat. This reveals the fact that Kosovo Albanian society is denying Christian values and tradition on which European culture is based. Desecrated image of the Lord

Information about the involvement of Islamic millitants in training and financial support of the Kosovo Liberation Army rebels in Kosovo are slowly emerging in many press reports. It appears that the CIA had precise information about this from the very beginning. Nevertheless the KLA terrorists, the majority of which are Muslim, keep using the similar methods like Islamic Millitants both in Kosovo and Macedonia. Financing of the etnire organization which still exists under different names despite the official disbandment in Sep 1999 are deeply rooted in heroin traffic, weapon smuggling, prostitution and other criminal activities carried out through the intricate network of Albanian mafia all around Europe. The following news articles demonstrate that this association is not just a prejudice but is based on concrete facts seen and testified by Western independent press. The photo left allegedly found in one of KLA strongholds and published in Serbian media even more arouses the suspicion of Islamic links in Kosovo.

ALBANIAN TERRORISTS - Islamic influence

Milan V. Petkovic, 1998 -- A particular intensification of Iranian activity in Albania and Kosovo and Metohija was registered after the meting of Islamic countries held in Jeddah in 1994, and the meeting of the D-8 group of Islamic countries held in Istanbul in 1996. Actually, the Balkan peninsula was chosen as a beachhead for an organized penetration of Islam into Europe. The escalation of terrorism in Kosovo and Metohija in 1997 and 1998, marked the beginning of a new phase of the long term plan that Teheran has prepared for the Balkans.
