...and a man without a country


* "Serbian Condolences for the Life of Arafat," is Petar Makara's reply to Slobodan Milosevic's effusive eulogy for Yassar Arafat. It was published by Arutz Sheva (Israel National News) at

* "Am I From Mars?" by Petar Makara. The NATO-created Government of Yugoslavia just voted to dissolve the state, and so Petar Makara is now a man without a country.

* The dissolution of Yugoslavia through parliamentary fiat (see above) was preceded by dissolution by censorship. The Encyclopedia Britannica once devoted 38 pages to Yugoslavia, but when NATO began its campaign to destroy Yugoslavia, its coverage in the Britannica  became "The Black Hole."

* "Kosovo Before 1989 - What Really Happened?"
Jared Israel interviews Petar Makara and Tika Jankovic about the real relationship between Serbs and Albanians in Kosovo.

* "Theft of the Serbs' Only Treasure," by Petar Makara
That treasure is honor, and it was stolen when the governments of Serbia and Yugoslavia kidnapped Slobodan Milosevic and shipped him to The Hague. (Petar Makara had been a supporter of Yugoslav President Vojislav Kostunica, one of the leaders of the kidnapping.) Makara explains the Serbs' great attachment to honor and justice and the shame they feel over the kidnapping, despite any criticisms that they (and he) may have of Milosevic.

'Judment!' Exposes the Phony Death Camp Pictures that Fooled the World
[ To Order JUDGMENT! Skip to End of Text]

In August 1992, millions of people were shocked to see photographs of a supposed Bosnian Serb death camp.

The photos were produced by ITN, the British TV news giant, from footage shot by an ITN film crew which spent 15 hours in Bosnia.

Most of the photographs featured a tall, painfully thin man, stripped to the waist, apparently penned in behind barbed wire.

The image was an illusion.  The thin man and other Bosnian Muslims were standing outside a small barbed wire enclosure. The ITN film crew was filming from inside the enclosure, thus creating the illusion that the men were behind barbed wire.

Traveling with the authorization of Radovan Karadzic, the Bosnian Serb leader, the ITN crew filmed at a detention center in Omarska and a refugee center in Trnopolje. The misleading ITN photos were broadcast worldwide beginning August 6th, accompanied by sensational captions and comments.

For example Ian Williams, one of the journalists who accompanied the ITN crew, appeared on U.S. Public Television's MacNeil-Lehrer Report on August 6th. Mr. Williams referred to the Trnopolje refugee center as a 'camp,' as in 'concentration camp', saying it was "at the center of allegations of atrocities." Williams claimed that:

"Conditions at this camp were appalling. In 100 degree heat hundreds of men were forced to eat and sleep outside in the field behind barbed wire." [My emphasis]
-- MacNeil-Lehrer Report, 6 August 1992

And indeed, the ITN photos seemed to show people living outside, caged like animals behind barbed wire. But Mr. Williams knew this impression was false. He knew the Muslim refugees were moving about freely, that it was the ITN people who were filming from a fenced-in area where some tools were stored. This is proved in the Emperor's Clothes movie, 'Judgment!'

How can 'Judgment!' have proved this?

By luck, a news crew from Serbian State Television (called RTS) covered the ITN visit. They went wherever ITN went, filming what ITN filmed and filming the ITN crew as well. Thus there is a visual record of what the ITN people did and what they actually saw. Using this footage, 'Judgment!' shows, step by step, how pictures of a humanitarian refugee center at Trnopolje were transformed into 'death camp' photos that fooled the world.

'Judgment!' proves that Ian Williams, now the UN correspondent for the Nation magazine, and other journalists who traveled to Bosnia with ITN, lied to the public.

*Mr. Bush Responds with Superhuman Speed*

On 6 August 1992, just 20 minutes after the pictures were released, George Bush, Senior held a press conference at a Colorado Air Base:

"Reports say that 20 minutes after the ITN footage was shown in the United States, President George Bush changed his hands-off policy and promised to 'press hard for quick passage' of a UN Security Council resolution authorising the use of force in the Balkans."
-- "The Straits Times, August 16, 1992
"Holocaust images of Bosnia prison camps make the West sit up," by Lee Siew Hua

The elder George Bush demanded that the Serbs be harshly punished, including:

"...tighten[ing] economic sanctions on Serbia so that all understand that there is a real price to be paid for the Serbian government's continued aggression."

Bush, Sr. also announced that the U.S. would recognize Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia as independent from Yugoslavia. He thus approved the break-up of Yugoslavia and guaranteed that the Bosnian war would continue.

Consider the remarkable speed with which President Bush reacted.

Some photos are shown on TV.

Immediately, President Bush contacts his cabinet members, who, coincidentally, have also seen the photos.

They confer. Somehow they determine that the pictures are genuine.

They contact leaders of, at least, Germany and England, possibly other countries. They plan draconian anti-Serb measures including economic sanctions that will cut Serbia off from the world.

They contact congressional leaders. They agree that Bush will announce the US intent to recognize no fewer than three new Yugoslav secessionist states.

They call a press conference at a Colorado Air Base. They write a press release. They compose Mr. Bush's statement.

The mass media receives the press release. Film crews travel to the Air base and set up their equipment.

And all this is done in...20 minutes?

The impossible speed of this response by President Bush, Sr., all but proves that the initial TV broadcasting of the ITN pictures was coordinated between ITN and either the State Department, the CIA or some similar body. By holding a press conference immediately after the pictures were shown, Bush created the impression that he, like ordinary people, was shocked by what he had seen and was therefore driven to take action against the Serbs.

Perhaps ITN's trip to Bosnia, supposedly organized to "investigate claims that concentration camps had been set up" (Strait Times), was planned from the outset as a hunt for footage which could be used to produce such supposed evidence.

ITN had a prior history of aggressively anti-Serbian coverage of the break-up of Yugoslavia. One might ask, why would the Bosnian Serb leadership give ITN access to Trnopolje and Omarska, about which the Western media (for example, Newsday, 21 July 1992) were already spreading nightmare tales? Perhaps they hoped that if they just let the ITN people see for themselves, ITN would be fair. They did not comprehend the moral standards of the people they were dealing with.
