Actually, if they’re not like this guy, then yeah — they’re ‘like that’:

Muslim converted by pope says life in more danger


Magdi Allam

An outspoken Muslim author and critic of Islamic fundamentalism who converted to Christianity at the hands of Pope Benedict said on Sunday he realized he was in greater danger but he has no regrets.

In a surprise move on Saturday night, the pope baptized the 55-year-old, Egyptian-born Allam at an Easter eve service in St Peter’s Basilica that was broadcast around the world.

Writing in Sunday’s edition of the leading Corriere della Sera, the newspaper of which he is a deputy director, Allam said: “… the root of evil is innate in an Islam that is physiologically violent and historically conflictual.”

Allam, who is a strong supporter of Israel and who an Israeli newspaper once called a “Muslim Zionist,” has lived under police protection following threats against him, particularly after he criticized Iran’s position on Israel.

It’s like I’ve been saying: Truly moderate Muslims are those who convert to Christianity.

Meanwhile, his stance on Israel is key to determining moderation. People love to say that the “tiny” violent minority misrepresents, and leads to stereotyping of, the vast Muslim majority — which is peaceful and law-abiding. Except that vast majority hates Israel and Jews. This is called a red flag and should be used as the great barometer of violent inclination that it is. They can’t hate Jews and like the West — which means they don’t like the West.

Just some more on Magdi from another report:

He told the Il Giornale newspaper in a December interview that his criticism of Palestinian suicide bombings generated threats on his life in 2003, prompting the Italian government to provide him with a sizeable security detail.

Allam also explained his decision to entitle a recent book “Viva Israel” or “Long Live Israel,” saying he wrote it after he received death threats from Hamas.

“Having been condemned to death, I have reflected a long time on the value of life. And I discovered that behind the origin of the ideology of hatred, violence and death is the discrimination against Israel. Everyone has the right to exist except for the Jewish state and its inhabitants,” he said. “Today, Israel is the paradigm of the right to life.”

Now if only the Vatican could take an example from Magdi on that front….

P.S. Another Zionist Muslim (who hasn’t converted) is Salah Coudhury, and he is imprisoned in Bangladesh for his views.

There is also the great Iraqi Muslim Mithal al-Alusi, whose two sons were killed for his views, which included that the Arab world should normalize relations with Israel.

Also worth mentioning are all the moderate Canadian Muslims who are being constantly harassed by the Muslims whom our leaders have deemed “moderate” and whom they’re allowing to be the voice of Islam in the West. Those would be the folks whom the real moderates were trying to get away from by coming here. So our bureaucracies let them follow the good guys here, and our leaders empowered them. And now the houses of the true moderates burn to the ground in Canada.

Two things.

Nicaraguan leader calls Obama’s campaign ‘revolutionary’ (from Feb. 14):

“It’s not to say that there is already a revolution under way in the U.S….but yes, they are laying the foundations for a revolutionary change,” the Sandinista leader said…as he accepted an honorary doctorate from an engineering university.

In statements broadcast on Sandinista Radio La Primerisima, Ortega said he has “faith in God and in the North American people, and above all in the youth, that the moment of great change in the U.S. will come…

Ortega also called Obama a spokesman for the millions of Central American and Mexican citizens who migrate to the U.S. in search of work…

In other words, he wants Hispanics to keep flooding America for work, AND he wants America to become the Latin-America-style socialist utopia that has the Latinos running for the border. A head-scratcher for sure. And there was more where that came from:

…Ortega gave approval to various army officials to receive training at the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, operated by the U.S. Defense Department in Fort Benning, Georgia — even as he said he would continue to lobby for the school’s closure.

Apparently, senility is a prerequisite for world leaders. Here’s something this week from our own:

March 22nd:

JERUSALEM (AP) Vice President Dick Cheney has said the United States will never pressure Israel to take steps that threaten its security.

March 23rd:

RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) Vice President Dick Cheney has said a Mideast peace agreement will require “painful concessions” by Israelis and Palestinians.

This recalls what Condoleezza Rice told a meeting of the United Jewish Communities in Nashville in November: “Israelis must be prepared for ‘difficult and painful sacrifices’ now that they have a negotiating partner in Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.”

As I said then: For example, a missing limb, a missing head, a missing parent, a missing child, and eventually a missing Israel.

Apparently, sacrifices like this aren’t painful enough for the Bush-Cheney-Rice Axis of Evil:

The Clintons have found a candidate who is more anti-American than they are:

A top foreign policy adviser to Barack Obama compared former President Bill Clinton’s remarks seeming to question Obama’s patriotism to those made by Joseph McCarthy.

It sounds more like McCarthy,'’ retired four-star General Merrill “Tony'’ McPeak, who also is a campaign co-chair, said after a rally today in Salem, Oregon. McCarthy, a former Republican senator from Wisconsin, was known for his extreme anti-communist suspicion amid Cold War tensions in the 1950s.

“I grew up, I was going to college when Joe McCarthy was accusing good Americans of being traitors,'’ McPeak said. “So I’ve had enough of it.'’

Clinton said [Friday] in Charlotte, North Carolina, that it would be great if the general election were between his wife, Democratic Senator Hillary Clinton of New York, and Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona. The vote would involve “two people who loved this country and were devoted to the interest of this country,'’ Bill Clinton said.

McPeak, a former Air Force chief of staff who served under Bill Clinton and former President George H.W. Bush, said he didn’t know what Bill Clinton’s intentions were when he made the remark. “But I’m disappointed in the statement,'’ he said. “I think Bill Clinton is, or ought to be, better than that.'’

Well that last sentence clears things up. The general is certifiable. In case this wasn’t apparent from his endorsement of Barack Obama, it should be from his thinking that Bill Clinton could be “better” than something.

The general’s analogy does seem to support one thing, though: If Bill Clinton is Joe McCarthy, then Barack Obama is definitely a Communist.

From a reader named Ed:

My daughter returned recently from working with the EU police mission in Bosnia. She made many friends who are Bosnian/Serb and Croat. Her Serb friends are outraged at the sellout of Kosovo. They say that every Serb family will shed their blood to retain Kosovo. With todays events I think we are on the verge of another Balkan War. I am also outraged at our countries sellout of Christians in favor of bloody red handed thugs from Albania. I can only hope the Russian Federation steps in and allies with Serbia to reverse this establishment of a terror state in Europe. I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would disagree this strongly with my countries position. I am a former nuclear weapons engineer and I worked long and hard and sacrificed my health to defeat the Soviet Union. I believe this is one of the worst policy decisions ever made by this country.

How far we have slipped from the wisdom of Kennedy and Reagan. God Help Us.

From a reader named Milos:

I have to thank you with my whole heart for speaking the truth about my people. I support Zionism…100% and hope that with your bigger lobby in America you never run into the same problems as us. We will keep fighting to take Kosovo back from the criminal Muslim Nazi terrorists occupying our land and hopefully one day we can even help Israel do the same! God bless you.

Feedback from a Canadian soldier to Scott Taylor’s speech in Toronto…

Hello Scott,

I just watched the video on the Kosovo rally in Ottawa. I have only one thing to say about your speech…BRAVO!

You mentioned that it was a difficult decision due to impartiality required of journalists and I can fully understand that. Regardless of Journalism or anything else the greater truth is paramount and in that you delivered. This recent declaration of independence and endorsement by various western states is nothing more than a fiasco and will surely lead to one of two things. Either a huge bloodbath at once or a long [drawn-out] struggle that will never cease until the Serbians reclaim that sacred ground as it should be. I tend to think it will be the latter. Big brother Bush has really screwed up here - big time.

Good on you for having the guts to call it straight.

Ex Peacekeeper.

In 2005 President Bush appointed Frank Wisner, Jr. to be the U.S. envoy to Kosovo. Wisner Jr. has been a loud and clear voice behind the sabotaging of Albanian-Serbian talks, always stating from the get-go that independence must be the end goal of any talks.

Wisner’s father, Frank Wisner Sr., was friendly with Albanan Nazis and as an OSS and CIA operative helped get them out of Communist Albania, at least partly to help us fight expansionist Communism. Unlike his father, who arguably had a larger goal in being friendly with Nazis (though it’s not clear what came first, his friendships or their usefulness) — that is, using them to fight Communism — his son is being friendly with Albanian Nazi heirs and Muslims…for what purpose? Apparently, to bolster expansionist Islam:

Advice to Arabs

The U.S. envoy to Kosovo is urging Arab governments to invest in Europe’s newest Muslim-majority nation.

Ambassador Frank G. Wisner called on the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) to build on its statement of support issued after Kosovo declared independence from Serbia on Feb. 17.

“I think Kosovars are ready for that and want it,” Mr. Wisner told America.gov, a U.S. State Department Web site.

Mr. Wisner, a former ambassador to India, the Philippines and Zambia, as well as to the OIC, argued that Kosovo is a good place for foreign investment.

“It’s a good investment in the future,” he said. “It’s a profitable investment in terms of the eventual economic evolution of southeastern Europe, and I hope a strong economic signal will accompany a political signal.”

He argued that the creation of the Kosovo republic has implications beyond Europe.

“To be able to secure a Muslim-majority state inside the European whole is a terrific signal that the Muslim world and the non-Muslim word can live side by side in peace and cooperation, one with the other,” he said.

“I believe that for most of the Muslim world, it’s very important that one looks at [Kosovo] as a matter of justice.”

Kosovar militants rebelled against Serbian domination in 1999 but were crushed by a fierce Serbian counteroffensive that led to charges of “ethnic cleansing” against Kosovars and the intervention of NATO forces. Since 2004, Kosovo was administered by the United Nations.

Separately, and once again, please notice that we’re increasingly seeing that it wasn’t genocide and ethnic cleansing of Albanian civilians that the Serbs were up to, but now it’s Kosovar “militants” that they were responding to and that the Serbs were engaged in a “counteroffensive” that led to mere “charges” of ethnic cleansing. In several other mainstream reports this month, we see a similarly benign closing — compared to the formerly ubiquitous, dastardly “ethnic cleansing of Albanians” that used to close out every report. For example:

Kosovo was a territory controlled by Serbia until 1999, when NATO launched an air war to stop Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic’s crackdown on separatists in Kosovo.

When I was in Israel last May, a Serbian monk named Father Jovan Culibrk told me that every Spanish soldier he spoke with in Kosovo told him, as many American ones did, “We were told to protect Albanians from Serbs. But it turned out it was Serbs who needed protecting from Albanians.” I recently mentioned Spain in reference to an article that appeared in a Spanish paper, titled “Mistake called Kosovo“:

MADRID — One of Spain’s most influential dailies says that Kosovo’s independence is imminent, and wrong. “Kosovo will soon declare independence, with the backing of Germany and the United States, despite the fact that the border change was not in keeping with international law, nor EU practice, and Spain is not heard or listened to by anyone in the EU,” ABC’s said today in an editorial.

This week the excellent “Allah’s Willing Executioners” blog by Fred Alan Medforth in Germany alerts us to an article in the Spanish daily “El Mundo”:

Spain to Withdraw from Kosovo Province

Spain should terminate its participation in the KFOR mission, said on Wednesday the influential Spanish El Mundo daily, which also said that the majority of Spaniards were urging their country’s withdrawal.

KFOR—From Peacekeepers to Occupiers

“Since the authorities in Kosovo unilaterally declared independence, KFOR’s task has completely changed,” El Mundo said.

“The mission at this moment has no legal basis. It was initially envisaged that KFOR would be a peacekeeping mission in the region, and there was no plan for it to become an occupation force that should subjugate the Serbian minority to the ethnic Albanian majority and to a policy of fait accompli,” the daily said.

Spain has over 100 troops in Kosovo-Metohia province as part of NATO’s contingent. The Pristina separatists announced independence unilaterally, which has been recognized by some European countries, but not by others, among which Spain remains firm in refusing to legitimize Washington-imposed dismemberment of sovereign UN member state.

Recently, I brought up the subject of the separatist terrorists Tamil Tigers, of Sri Lanka, in a blog titled “Nationalist Terrorists vs. Islamist Terrorists”. The post drew out the confluences between the two, and used the Tamils to illuminate the KLA’s methods and goals. Apparently, Sir Lankans were also instantly aware of the similarities, as the two items excerpted below demonstrate. The first one goes on to make an excellent point about nationhood in general:

Kosovo will need more than a new flag (From February):

…Kosovo, in turn, is attracting enmity from parts of the world of which many of its celebratory residents may never have heard. It’s odd, for example, to be sitting in the middle of a ramshackle patch of land in the Balkans which suddenly finds itself a target for the wrath of Sri Lanka. Pristina feels very far from Colombo. But the Sri Lankan reaction, instant and fiery and generated by its own separatist conflict with the Tamils, only shows that Kosovo’s independence has global consequences.

This is because, whether the European Union accepts it or not, Kosovo’s creation defines the world’s newest nation state in the most explosive manner possible - by ethnicity…[Kosovo’s fate] affects the way people look at themselves across the world, encouraging them to focus on what divides, rather than what unites them with others.

…Kosovo, as an independent, tolerant, multi-ethnic state, quickly wants to join the European Union, which has bent over backwards to remind everyone that the new country creates no “precedent” for other separatist movements.

The problem is that is just not true. Those who encouraged Kosovo’s independence have an interpretation of nationhood that is fundamentally at odds with that of those who are now independent. For Kosovo’s backers in London, Brussels and Washington, a nation is defined by “values”: by how people behave. But in Kosovo, what counts is “identity”: who you are, what you speak and look like, how you worship.

Unless Kosovans can exchange the latter definition for the former, the crucial notion that a nation state can and should bind disparate people together under a single flag will have been seriously compromised.

CEYLON DAILY NEWS EDITORIAL (SRI LANKA, Feb. 19):

The case against Kosovo

The Government’s decision to oppose the UDI declaration by Kosovo from the Serbian Republic was a most appropriate move and should be followed by all States who value their independence and sovereignty lest the phenomenon catches on globally threatening the existence of States as cohesive entities.

Sri Lanka which more than most nations has had experience of battling terrorism especially - an outfit dubbed as the most ruthless band of terrorists in the world - is well aware of the pangs and emotions attached to protecting the country as a sovereign State and is eminently qualified to be heard and taken seriously by other nations who are yet to make a decision in this regard.

We hope Sri Lanka and those countries who have voiced opposition to the latest development would prove a catalyst in the fight against emerging trends to undermine nations through the agency of terrorism.

From The Independent:

Sir: In your article headed, “The symbol of Kosovo: an eagle with two faces — each looking a different way” (17 February), I find the two-faced eagle quite apropos, with one face looking to the West for handouts, and the other looking to the east and Islam.

Since 1999, some 400 Islamic mosques have been built in Kosovo, thanks to generous funding by Iran and Saudi Arabia. In tandem with that, more than 150 ancient Christian holy places in Kosovo have been destroyed by extremist Albanian Muslims.

The West has permitted Islam to reach deep into Kosovo and the whole of the region, with everything that entails. The sizeable Albanian populations in south Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, and even Greece will want to amalgamate with their brethren in Kosovo. That will become clearer within years.

Quite the tangled web has been woven by the West when first it practised to deceive in 1999.

Sir: Will we now see the Catalans and Basques in Spain demand independence from the central government in Madrid and would member countries of the EU and the USA back them, as they have the Kosovars?…I am sure the Chechen people will now be looking for help to become independent of Russia or maybe my own county of Yorkshire may want to throw off the oppressive shackles of London and make York the capital of an independent Yorkshire.

Sir: Kosovo’s declaration of independence is of great historic and inspirational value to all the oppressed nations from around the world, fighting for their independence. Like Kosovars, Kashmiris, too, have been fighting against an unjust military occupation of their beautiful country by India and Pakistan. The news from Kosovo has brought cheer and hope to Kashmiris. Britain and the United States have stood on the side of justice…Many Kashmiris hope that British and American people will also stand in solidarity with them in their struggle for independence.

Kosovo part of ‘Greater Albania’

The photo caption for David R. Sands’ article “Serbia braces for a new nation” is very telling: “Shop owners in Prizren hung Albanian flags yesterday as Kosovo prepares to declare independence from Serbia” (World, Friday).

They’re raising Albanian flags in Kosovo. Albania is a neighboring country. Therefore, the odds are there is a Greater Albania in the making.

The Albanian Muslims have a voracious appetite for more territory. That does not portend well for south Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro or even Greece…

LIZ MILANOVICH

From The Patriot News (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania):

With news that Kosovo Albanians have declared “Independence,” the White House, acting as midwife to the birth of a new Islamic nation, has given its “blessings,” thereby ceding land that belongs to a sovereign country and presenting the gift to Serbia’s centuries old Islamic enemy.

Since 1999, some 200 Christian churches and monasteries have been destroyed or desecrated by Albanian mobs under the noses of KFOR. Hundreds of mosques, [including an Osama bin Laden mosque,] have been built, mainly with Saudi money, to propagate the intolerant Wahhabi brand of Islam. While Kosovo Serbs suffer ethnic cleansing, attacks on their elderly, and destruction of their sacred shrines, the world remains silent.

As though 500 years of Islamic oppression by the Ottoman Turks were not enough, Christian Serbs are doomed once again to live under the Islamic yoke imposed upon them by the powers that be. Not only is it unjust and inhumane, it is a violation of the UN Charter and the most basic precepts of International law.

The creation of an overwhelming Muslim country in the heart of Europe is not the end. It is only the beginning.

Hypocrisy in Response to the Violence in Belgrade (Feb. 23):
by Joseph Grieboski

…The White House, the State Department, and the European Union went ballistic — understandably so — when rioting Serbs angry at the illegal and illicit unilateral declaration of independence by Kosovo set fire to the US embassy.

The Government of Serbia had a responsibility to protect the diplomatic missions and failed, possibly on purpose.

But these incidents bring two issues to mind:

1. Did the West actually expect that the Serbian people would permit the theft of its national and cultural and religious homeland without response?

2. Why were no such condemnations and vitriolic statements made by the US and EU authorities when Kosovar Albanians “spontaneously” rioted in 2004 in response to a lack of movement on Kosovo final status?

Opinion polls in Serbia, the recent run off of the presidential elections, news reports, and NGO documentation provided clear and unambiguous evidence that the people of Serbia — not the Government — would not accept Kosovo’s being taken from them without reaction.

Since the 12th century, Kosovo has been the heart of Serbian Orthodoxy that largely constitutes the Serbian national identity. By 1999, Kosovo had become home to diverse religious and ethnic groups.

The most appalling event that demonstrated the incompetence of both Provisional Authority, UNMIK, and KFOR to protect the people of Kosovo started on March 17, 2004. On that day ethnic violence erupted involving over 50,000 individuals in at least 30 separate incidents, which claimed the lives of 19 civilians [actually, over 30 dead including KFOR] and injured over 900 persons, including international peacekeepers and members of the clergy. This violence displaced more than 4,000 persons, mainly Serbs, from their homes. The ethnic violence perpetrated by Kosovo Albanians resulted in the destruction or serious damage of more than 900 houses and 150 vehicles belonging to Kosovo Serbs, Roma, Ashkali, and other minorities. Our delegation learned that ethnic violence was directed toward the centers of cultural and religious life of Kosovo’s minority communities, more specifically the Orthodox, and it resulted in the desecration of approximately 36 churches and monasteries, many centuries old, added up to the total of over 140 churches and other religious places ruined, damaged and desecrated in the past decade.

Let me illustrate how such atrocities could happen in the presence of multi-thousand regiments of KFOR that were supposed to actually ensure the security in the region. The Monastery of Djakovica is home for several Orthodox nuns, some of them of senior age. During the first night of violence, French KFOR troops held back the attacking mob from the monastery that historically was a place of great respect and pilgrimage for the Muslim population of Kosovo. On the second night, in the absence of the abbess, French KFOR troops forcefully threw the nuns, in the words of one of the elderly nuns, “like sacks of potatoes” into an armored vehicle. As the troops stood by watching, an angry mob attacked the monastery. French troops were alerted that an elderly nun who had recently suffered a heart attack was recovering in her cell, but responded that there was nothing they could do for her as the mob set her room on fire. By the Grace of God, the nun escaped to the neighboring forest and lived in the elements for three days with no food, shelter or blanket before returning to the monastery for fear of her life.

This is an exemplary story of how KFOR has generally perceived its mission: protect people, not property…

While few of the churches in Kosovo have yet been restored, the number of mosques has grown significantly with funding from Saudi Arabia and other Islamic states, as the plaques on these mosques indicate. Although many mosques are empty, such process of religious mapping in and of itself has symbolic and political repercussions.

After March 17, 2004 the minority populations of Kosovo have had a difficult time recognizing as legitimate the authorities in Kosovo that failed to fulfill their mandate and largely boycotted the 2004 fall elections for the Kosovo Assembly. Such a political situation is in no way conducive to independence.

Yet, despite all the damage and destruction caused under the watchful eyes of the very same US and EU that now decries the destruction of the embassy, there was no strident condemnation of the Kosovar Albanians; there was no U.N. Security Council condemnation of the “mob attacks” as there was for the embassy fire.

Let me repeat: approximately 36 churches and monasteries, many centuries old, were desecrated or destroyed and hundreds of people hurt in the “spontaneous” riots in 2004, and no response by State, the White House, or the EU.


The above video was made by Kosovo Albanian local TV and shows arrival of the mob — by bus, nonetheless — to the Church of St. Apostle Andrew in Podujevo. You will also notice UN forces, Czech troops in fact, that stood by and watched the destruction of the church and the desecration of the cross on the top.

And no comment from Brussels or Washington…

George Jonas, author of Vengeance, the reputable book that Steven Spielberg’s movie “Munich” perverted, recently had an article titled “Bill Clinton got it wrong on Albania.” Though he was actually writing about Kosovo, using “Albania” is an apropos Freudian slip, since we know it’s all one and the same Greater Albania. The piece was stunning, all the more since this is the man who wrote the definitive book about what happened in Munich in 1972, and he makes the clear connection between Kosovo and what happened in Munich in 1938:

As the last century was drawing to a close, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization actually went to war for the first time in the alliance’s 50-year history…[A]s a result of NATO’s war, the province of Kosovo declared its independence from Serbia.

Did NATO achieve its war aim? Well, no — at least, not NATO’s ostensible aim: To stop ethnic cleansing and make the world safer for multicultural democracy.

If NATO’s aim was to have the Albanian Muslim side win a historic ethnic-religious conflict with Serbian Orthodox Christians, it succeeded. But why was this in NATO’s interest?

A little more than eight years ago (how time flies) CNN broadcast the last Memorial Day celebration of the 20th century.

It all sounded fine, until America’s least martial and most libidinous president mounted the podium.

Bill “Make Love, Not War” Clinton used the opportunity to pitch, not his celebrated liaison with Monica Lewinsky, but his and Tony Blair’s war in the Balkans. He declared that the allies of NATO were bombing Yugoslavia to put an end to regimes that persecute people on the basis of “how they worship or who their parents were.”

The only problem with this, as with so many of Clinton’s remarks uttered during his presidency, was that it wasn’t true.

Ethnic Albanians in Kosovo were never being oppressed or cleansed because of how they worshipped or who their parents were. Whenever examples of atrocities against ethnic Albanians occurred, they occurred because they’ve been fighting the Serbs for the mastery of a region.

The conflict in that unhappy land was always sparked by the resolve of one group, the Albanians, to be masters in what they view as their own house, colliding with the resolve of another group, the Serbians, to be masters in the same house — which they also regard as their own.

Eight years ago, Clinton addressed the morality of multiculturalism. So did many other Western politicians…Bombing a country into a multicultural democracy would be a dubious enterprise even if it could be done. It would be dubious even if the people ostensibly conducting such an enterprise really meant it.

But the Yugoslav conflict was worse. Whether NATO’s leaders realized it or not, saving Kosovo for multiculturalism was never on the agenda.

The hole in NATO’s logic was large enough for the proverbial truck…[T]o first say that countries shouldn’t be organized along ethnic lines, and then demand self-government for one group within a nation on the sole basis of ethnicity, is an exercise in self-contradiction.

This was endorsing one ethnic group at the expense of another. It was saying that Albanians may use their ethnic majority in Kosovo to assert their political identity, but Serbs in Yugoslavia may not.

So NATO’s war aim wasn’t even multiculturalism (questionable as such a goal may be, especially if imposed at the point of cruise missiles) but ethnic separatism, the very opposite of the declared ideal of Clinton and Company.

This is what Hitler forced on Czechoslovakia at Munich, using the ethnic nationalism of the Sudeten Germans to dismantle a sovereign state.

At least the Nazis were ethnic nationalists. What they did was logical in their terms. What possible logic compelled multicultural democracies to wage a war for Kosovo’s secession?
