Comment on an article by Scott Taylor...
Guilty are NATO and the UN for Terror
by Jared Israel
Reprinted from www.icdsm.com
[ www.tenc.net ]
This is how Mr. Taylor's piece in the Halifax Herald begins:
It is very good that Mr. Taylor reports a fact usually 'overlooked' by the mainstream media, namely that a quarter million Serbs and others have been driven from Kosovo. Actually, the figure must be higher - but OK, at least he reports the mass expulsion.
However, the statement that, "the majority of the terror attacks have been committed by Albanian extremists... over the past few years," is highly misleading. It suggests an ongoing fight between opposing ethnic groups, which fits the dominant perception: that Kosovo's problems stem from monstrous attitudes *on all sides* and that these bad attitudes erupt spontaneously into hate wars.
The terror has not come *from all sides* and the attacks have not been spontaneous.
The attacks have been highly organized, entirely one-sided, and they have been sanctioned by the NATO powers.
Most of the "Serbs and other ethnic minorities" were attacked and driven out of Kosovo immediately after NATO entered Kosovo, or within a few weeks. The terrorist attackers *marched into Kosovo alongside NATO forces.* They were, for all intents and purposes, part of the NATO armies. A graphic description of the unity of KFOR and the terrorists can be found in the article, "How NATO Brought Hell to Orahovac." 
This article consists of interviews with three women from the Kosovo town of Orahovac, occupied by NATO in June 1999.
Orahovac was unusual because when the terrorists arrived, the Serbian residents mostly did *not* leave. As I learned from the three women, this was because roadblocks were put up, preventing their departure, and turning the town essentially into a concentration camp for Serbs.
In that interview, I asked one of the women, Ms. Natasha Grkovic, why it was that the 3000 Serbs who ended up trapped in Orahovac did not flee *before* NATO took over. How could they not have known that a nightmare would descend?
Ms. Grkovic explained that NATO bombing destroyed communication links with Belgrade. Thus prior to NATO occupation, the news coming into Orahovac was the news broadcast by NATO, including constant promises that NATO would bring peace and multiethnic security. The day before NATO entered, they sent representatives to meet with prominent Serbs, repeating these promises. Here's Ms. Grkovic:
'Despite' or 'Because of'?
In his article, Mr. Taylor states that the ethnic terror against the Serbs occurred "despite the presence of some 27,000 NATO troops and 4,400 international police." This wording suggests that NATO failed to prevent terrible crimes due to political interference or incompetence.
But Ms. Grkovic describes something quite different: a *system* of terror.
In this system, the KLA operates as the terrorist arm of NATO, permitting NATO the luxury of plausible denial. The dirty work gets done and NATO is criticized, as in Mr. Taylor's article, for sins of *omission.* But the evidence points to sins of *commission.*
Misdescription of Role of UN
Mr. Taylor of course cannot be faulted for the comments made by the two police officers whom he interviewed for this article. However, perhaps more accurate information could have been gotten from these men if he had asked more challenging questions. For example, one of the police officers made the following comments about organized crime in Kosovo:
Mr. Fletcher is quoted above as saying, "One of the UN's biggest obstacles to overcome has been the well-entrenched Albanian mafia..."
This suggests that the well-entrenched Mafia is indeed an "obstacle" for the UN. The problem is, the Mafia was not well entrenched until NATO and the UN entered Kosovo and it was the UN and NATO, which made it clear, from the start, that the activities of gangster-terrorists were officially sanctioned.
Consider the following excerpt from an interview with Cedomir Prlincevic, leader of the former Jewish community in Pristina, capital of the province of Kosovo. I say "former" because the Jews were all driven from Pristina a few days after NATO's arrival. Here is how Mr. Prlincevic describes the response of British KFOR (NATO's name in Kosovo) to the attack of a huge gang of Albanian terrorists on an apartment complex where thousands of people lived. This was a few days after NATO marched into Pristina, accompanied, according to Mr. Prlincevic, by the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) thugs:
Thus in towns across Kosovo, whether Orahovac, or Pristina, or wherever, the gangsterization proceeded as *NATO took over* the province. It is simply absurd to argue that this process occurred absent NATO's guidance. So the type of scene described by Mr. Fletcher, wherein an Albanian arch criminal is arrested, followed by Albanian demonstrations demanding his release, this type of scene is in reality a kind of game. The game a) allows the UN/KFOR to maintain the pretense that they are *trying* to curb these awful gangsters who constitute such a terrible "obstacle" while b) in fact strengthening the hand of the gangsters. Mr. Fletcher says the gangsters "wrap themselves in the Albanian flag." But in fact, the ultra nationalist Kosovo Liberation Army has always been a gangster organization. To guarantee an adequate supply of gangsters for the KLA, one of the first things that KFOR did when it entered Kosovo was open the border to Albania, as described in the following excerpt from an article I wrote in August of 1999, two months after NATO took over Kosovo.
I accuse NATO of organizing the takeover of Kosovo by Albanian secessionist/gangsters for two reasons. First, because Albanian gangsters-terrorists have as their goal the crushing of political formations among *any* ethnic group which would favor keeping Kosovo as part of Serbia and free from foreign domination. And second, because these secessionists are consumed with race hate for the Serbs, gypsies (Roma), Gorani and other ethnic groups which traditionally favor a united Yugoslavia, the destruction of which has been a major part of NATO's goal in the Balkans.
