Has Kosovo been liberated or turned into a terrorism-breeding ground by the US?


Interfax Russian news agency

In early 2001 the world was alarmed by reports that the Afghani Talibs destroyed the gigantic statures of Buddha, unique monuments of ancient culture. At that time the topic of prostrate sculptures firmed up in the headlines of major newspapers and news reports from leading TV networks. Almost unnoticed against this background was another tragedy, which had begun a little earlier and continues to this day, namely, the destruction of monasteries and churches in Kosovo.

It did not happen in a remote country where the Talibs exercised complete sway, it, the crucifixion of Kosovo, was taking place in the very center of Europe, before the very eyes of peacemakers from the most developed countries. The Albanian extremists were finishing now what they had no time to complete during World War II. According to the data from the Serbian Orthodox Church, nearly 150 churches and monasteries have been destroyed for the last five years in Kosovo and Metochia, the cradle of Serbian Orthodoxy.

It was not just cultural monuments or sacred things that were destroyed. What was profaned was the very soul of a nation with rich traditions and an outstanding fate, a nation which helped to liberate Europe from fascism 60 years ago, sacrificing to the Victory about a million of its people.

According to many experts, Kosovo today has been turned into a breeding-ground of terrorism for the whole of Europe, a transfer point for drug dealers. Only a few surviving churches and the ruins of the churches which had no chance to survive the new barbaric times stand as tacit reminders of the past of that land.

The Religion portal, together with the Foundation of St. Andrew the First-Called, publishes a gallery of Kosovo churches as they were before the destruction and as they are now. Perhaps these pictures, more eloquently than any words, relate the tragedy of one of the largest European nations, which, strangely, was bypassed by world news reports.

Do u know how many Muslims were killed, tortured and raped during the war between Serbians and Muslims in all Yugoslavia (in regions of Bosnia, Croatia, Kosovo and many other places)?
Over than 250,000 Muslim killed, 50,000 women raped, 2 million people lost their homes.
These people were killed and raped to purify the Serbian race, as those sick murderers claimed!

The Kosovo war is just a smaller Bosnian war, and the people thought of it as one long-lasting war that even started since the Muslim existence in this region, which dates back to the ottoman empire, Muslims remembered their persecution all over the years, and their extermination by the Serbian government during the three years of war.

I am against destroying these churches for any cause, but may be I am saying this because I am out. U know what I mean, If I was Bosnian who got my family killed and tortured I may have tried to seek revenge and do worse than this.

This destruction of churches is a normal reaction to the massacres that the UN considered to be the worst in Europe since World War II.
