What really happened in Srebrenica?
When the Bosnian Serb Army recaptured the town of Srebrenica five years ago, Dutch UN peacekeepers were the only Western observers present. The Dutch UN peacekeepers ridicule Clinton Administration claims that Serbian troops massacred thousands of disarmed Muslims:
The Myth: The Western media has used the Myth of Srebrenica to slander the Serbian people for five years. The idea is: repeat a lie enough times and people will believe it.
But what really happened before and after the army of Republika Srpska recaptured Srebrenica?
Islamist terrorists, based in Srebrenica, raided local villages, mutilating and murdering Serbian and moderate Muslim villagers. Innocent civilians. It is remarkable that when the Serbs retook Srebrenica they did not exact revenge.
ISLAMIST LEADER BOASTS
The UN declared Srebrenica a 'safe zone' in 1993. That meant a) Srebrenica was supposed to be disarmed and b) it was supposed to be safe from attack
But the UN never disarmed the Islamists who occupied Srebrenica.
The Islamist 'troops' were a gang of sadists in the tradition of extremist Muslims who who joined the Nazi SS during World War II and murdered Serbs, 'Gypsies' and Jews. Listen to their modern-day incarnation, Commander Nasir Oric, the Srebrenica leader of what was called the Bosnian Muslim Army (thus insulting those Muslims who opposed Oric's murderous racism). The following is from the report of a 1994 Toronto Star interview with Oric:
Note that Oric boasts that his 'troops' mutilated and murdered innocent villagers, not Serbian troops. In World War II the local Nazis - the Croatian Ustashe whose regime was installed by the Axis invaders to rule Croatia and Bosnia, and the Bosnian Islamists whom the Ustashe endorsed as approved members of the Croatian nation - killed by mutilation, using so-called 'cold weapons': knives, hammers, axes. They liked to be photographed with what they called 'trophies': dead bodies, severed heads of their victims. That was the Nazi past, right? Well, here is the Washington Post reporting on an interview with Oric, Srebrenica Commander of the terrorists known as the Bosnian Muslim Army:
The Clinton administration strongly supported the fanatical Islamist faction that controlled Sarajevo. Oric's killers were part of that faction's army. The Clinton administration praised the Islamist faction, putting forward the myth that it was a) the legitimate government and b) tolerant.
The head of that 'government' was and is Alija Izetbegovic. He joined the pro-Nazi Young Muslims in Nazi-occupied Sarajevo in 1943. He helped recruit members of the SS Handzar Division. He worked with Hitlers intelligence service (ABWER and GESTAPO). In 1946 he was sentenced by the Yugoslav Military Court to three years in prison for his fascist activities. 
Jumping forward to 1990, here's a quote from Izetbegovic's book, "Islamic Declaration":
Izetbegovic idolized the Ayatollah Khomeini. His Islamist movement was outvoted in the 1990 elections by Fikret Abdic, a pro-Yugoslav Muslim. Later, Abdic and his moderate followers allied with the great majority of Bosnian Serbs against Izetbegovic's Islamist fanatics.
Why has the Clinton government backed the Islamists? Clinton is also supporting the descendents of World War II fascists in Kosovo today. In fact, in Kosovo these killers have been given official jobs with the UN. More on that in a moment.
THE MYTH OF THE 7000
By 1995 Oric's murderous raids forced the Bosnian Serb Army to send some of its limited number of troops to retake Srebrenica. Unfortunately, Oric and most of his thugs escaped. Today Oric is free as a bird, running a disco in the town of Tuzla. [Note - This was accurate when written, in 2000. Subsequently, Oric was tried for war crimes at The Hague Tribunal. Despite his public record of boasting that he mass murdered Serbian civilians, The Hague set him free. - J.I.]
As the Serbs entered Srebrenica, the terrorists tried to escape through the forest for Islamist-dominated Tuzla. Firefights raged all night. 2,000 terrorists were killed. Later, the Western media and politicians spread the lie that up to 8000 helpless POWs were executed, but there is overwhelming evidence they died in battle, or escaped.
WHY HAVEN'T THE BODIES BEEN IDENTIFIED?
We often hear that:
According to a report in the Sunday Mail: 'After five years we have found 160 mass graves, but we have no idea who the people are."
The grave sites that NATO has dug up are mostly a) near battlefields or b) near the towns attacked by Nasir Oric's serial killers. The Clinton administration admits that "we have no idea who the people [in these graves] are."
But we do know that Oric's Islamist terrorists killed thousands of Serbian villagers. Doesn't it make sense that the bodies NATO has dug up are A) victims of the Islamist terrorists, B) soldiers who fought the Islamists, C) Islamist terrorists killed in fighting?
HOLBROOKE INSULTS HOLOCAUST
Richard Holbrooke, US Ambassador to the UN, recently reopened the Myth of Srebrenica, attacking the Serbs. Said Holbrooke: "Srebrenica must not be forgotten " (AFP, November 11, 2000)
The phrase "Never forget!" is associated with victims of Nazi terror in World War II, especially Jews killed in the Holocaust. How dare Holbrooke invoke the Holocaust in order to slander the Serbs? During World War II, Bosnian Serbs died alongside their Jewish and 'Gypsy' neighbors at the hands of Nazis - Germans and the local variety, the Catholic extremists known as Ustashe, who included Muslim extremists. (The Ustashe gave Muslims the racial designation, 'Croatian,' making them eligible for Ustasha membership.) In the 1990s Serbs and non-Serbs who supported a united Yugoslavia were killed by NATO-backed Nazis: in and around Croatia by Franjo Tudjman's reborn Ustashe; in Bosnia by Islamists and pro-Ustasha Croats; and in Kosovo by the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA).
Why is Holbrooke reopening Srebrenica? Because he wants to hide the nightmare created by NATO and the UN in Kosovo.
As many as 350,000 Serbs, Jews, 'Gypsies,' Slavic Muslims and Turks, and ethnic Albanians opposed to the KLA have been driven from Kosovo. Their property has been stolen by gangsters with official positions, courtesy of the UN. Apartment blocs have been emptied by terror and then sold to speculators - including UN and NATO personnel. This is reality. It is in order to cover-up these crimes and prevent public outrage that the media has dragged out the Srebrenica myth - once again.
