“Old habits die hard: A yellow cross fixed by German NATO to the door of a Serbian house to show that Christians live there.”

Our so-called adversary press, like the U.S. Government, has ignored the plight of Christians in Kosovo. Incredibly, the U.S. and the U.N. are destroying the sovereignty of Serbia in order to create a Muslim state in Europe. This book tells the story suppressed by our media that all Americans need to know.

Finally, the truth is coming out about the Kosovo jihad and how it has been aided and abetted by NATO, the UN, and the EU. Thanks to Iseult Henry, maybe the shameful and ultimately suicidal support of the Kosovo jihadists by Western powers will finally be ended.

From the American Council for Kosovo website:

At a time when the Western powers – foremost among them the United States – prepare what they hope will be an endgame for their predetermined solution to the Serbian question, now comes a searing ray of truth that cuts through the fog of lies in which Kosovo has been shrouded. The work of “Iseult Henry,” the pen name of a current member of the international mission in Kosovo, Hiding Genocide in Kosovo: A Crime against God and Humanity is not a typical book of the current events or international affairs genre. Nor is it a journalistic exposé. It is simply a book of stories, true stories of what has taken place in Kosovo since the end of the 1999 war: shooting, beheading, burning, bomb attack, maiming, rape, abduction, torture, desecration, theft, mutilation, and harassment. While Western policymakers (the U.S., EU, UN, NATO, OSCE, etc.) delude themselves that they are buying the goodwill of the Muslim world by the sacrifice of a small Christian community in Kosovo, the perpetrators know this is yet another step toward Islamic dominance of all Europe. This is a struggle for the soul and future not just for Kosovo, not just for Serbia, but for an entire continent.

Hiding Genocide in Kosovo — A Crime against God and Humanity will be sent to you on request with a contribution of any size to the ongoing work of The American Council for Kosovo. (The book can be requested online.)

Please note that JULIA DOESN’T GET ANY $$$ FOR THIS! (Julia doesn’t even remember what a dollar looks like.) Let me repeat that for my Albanian and Croatian readers: JULIA WON’T BE SEEING A DIME FROM THIS BOOK. Let me know if I’ll need to explain this again tomorrow.

Herewith, a few excerpts:

As an eye witness to the suffering, and the unbearable conditions meted out to the remaining communities in Kosovo, in particular the Serbs, I feel compelled to write an account of the events to which I have been a witness and which bears out what the former NATO officer wrote in the visitors’ book in the Patriarchate.

Here is a true account of the genocide of the Serbs of Kosovo, the slow strangulation of their culture, their way of life, their means of livelihood and their ability to practice their religion. The writer does not feel restrained from telling what she knows by reasons of political correctness as so many others have been. …

The writer is a witness to the fact that not only did the authorities appointed by the international community turn a blind eye to the horrors and terror; in many cases they were guilty of collusion and in fact covered up what the ethnic cleansers were doing. The following stories will provide examples of their collusion and their inability to tell the truth about what was really happening in Kosovo. Not only are the various organizations charged with bringing peace and security to Kosovo guilty, so too are the various western media outlets which have consistently remained silent about the regime of terror prevailing in Kosovo since June 1999.

These stories describe in detail the gradual, systematic and thorough cleansing of the territory of Kosovo through the slow asphyxiation of the remaining enclaves. It is a grim tale and I believe it is my duty as a European to tell it. These enclaves — remote, isolated, economically disadvantaged, cut off from most public services and utilities for large periods of time — are the last bastions of civilisation in Kosovo. If it can happen in Kosovo it can happen anywhere, where citizens of a country become unequal before the law, where they are restricted and have little or no freedom of movement. …

…They are denied basic human rights and are not equal to their Muslim counterparts under the law. Even though the Serbs were the main targets they were not the only ones. Consider the situation of the Croats who now number less than 500, or the Roma who have been banished to the edges of the Serb enclaves by persistent terrorization, or the Gorani, Slavic Muslims, who reside in the south west tip of Kosovo in the mountains and whose numbers dwindle every year.

[Petar] described to me the time he had come back before after the 1999 pogrom. He was working for an international NGO in 2002 and he and his Norwegian friend Rune (a former KFOR photo-journalist) and several other Serbs decided to…have a drive through Urosevac again just to see it. After all, for the Serbs in the car it would their first opportunity in 3 years to see their place of birth. They drove there arriving shortly after midnight and drove around some of their old streets…Abruptly, a KPS car stopped them. They were asked to show identification. All went well until the Serbs showed their UNMIK IDs with Serbian names. Despite the fact that an “international” was with them they were all hauled out of the vehicle and subjected to an interrogation in the street. Whilst their friend from Norway looked on, the KPS took great delight in tormenting the Serbs who were foolish enough to come back for a look at Urosevac. Meanwhile a hostile crowd was gathering and all the Serbs could hear was the call going out “Serbs in town.” They were lined up against a wall at gunpoint while reinforcements were called for and soon there were 10 or more Albanian KPS beating them up. They were beaten with batons as they stood against the wall, being falsely accused of killing someone. Then they were forced to lie on the ground while the KPS continued to interrogate them, kicking them while they were on the ground. …

Eventually at a stage when the Norwegian was convinced they were all going to be killed, and many threats to do such a thing were made, an international policeman turned up. Well, that is to say a member of the UNMIK international police from the USA. He asked the Serbs what they were doing in Ferizaj at that time of night or for that matter why they were there at all. The Serbs answered they had not seen their homes for three years and were curious to see the place they had grown up in. His answer was sombre, if true. He put it simply: “Wrong Judgment.”

Apart from Petar, none of others have ever returned to Urosevac after that night in 2002.Petar did return with me and other “internationals” including an armed UNMIK policeman- incidentally from the USA - and, accompanied by his uncle Nenad, he showed us Nerodimlje and other places in Urosevac. When I visited the village with Petar and his uncle in the summer of 2006, we were made to feel uncomfortable and after some time a crowd began to gather. The UNMIK police officer became worried and advised us all to get out of there quickly. It is an unwelcoming place.

No one has ever been brought to justice for the murders in Nerodimlje. No one has ever been brought to justice for the other murders in Urosevac or for the campaign of terror, intimidation and harassment that has driven almost all non-Albanians out of the municipality. According to UNMIK there are no ethnic problems in Urosevac.

My last visit to the town of Vitina was in October 2006. I went to visit the last remnants of the Serbian community who live huddled around the Church of St. Petka. They are part of the remaining 100 or so Serbs left in the town. They rarely travel more than 200 metres away from the area around the church on foot as to do so could risk serious attack. …

I met Pedja in a restaurant in Belgrade recently…He informed me that he was now trying to build a new life for himself away from the horrors of Vitina…As the story is told to me, the UÇK first started attacking civilians in June 1999…At the start of the campaign to cleanse them, a Serb was killed every week; after a while it became a Serb being killed every second week. Pedja pointed out that before the bombing Vitina was peaceful, there were a few Albanian families and they had good relations with the Serb majority. He pointed out that they even sheltered together during the NATO bombing in the bomb shelters, in cellars under people’s houses.

After the Serbian police and army left in June 1999, NATO troops arrived in the province; from then on unbelievable things began to happen. He pointed out that Albanians came from nowhere, he did not recognise any of them; some of them looked very wild, had very tanned faces and wore beards. After their arrival in the town, the local Albanian population from the town and the surrounding villages began to act differently, calling them names and calling them on the phone and telling them to leave Vitina.

The kidnapping of Serb residents became an everyday occurrence. Some were taken to the nearby village of Vrban where they were kept in a cellar…When US KFOR established itself in Vitina in June 1999, they only assisted the Albanians, they gave them food and clothing and completely ignored the Serbs. The Albanians were jubilant and were on the streets everyday making lots of noise and giving flowers and presents to the US army. They were waving at them and even kissing them. The Serbs watching this thought it was pure theatre. From this point on Albanians became very rude and aggressive when they saw Serbs. …

The killing started about that time. They killed every day everywhere. Serbs were so scared that many of them left and fled to Serbia and more than half of the town was emptied of its Serbian population in the space of two months. Their houses were looted, plundered and eventually burnt. The UÇK had a special focus on killing young people… Pedja spent his time in the house afraid to venture out. There was no electricity and the UÇK had disconnected the phone and the water supply. Therefore no one could call KFOR or the police if anything happened. Bombs were thrown into his garden on a regular basis. His house was stoned and also broken into. This was the lot of every Serbian household in Vitina. An example of the type of terror tactics imposed on the Serbs to get rid of them and to acquire their property is the case of Sinisa Dinkic. His shop is diagonally across from the church of St. Petka near the bridge. It was attacked at least 15 times with rocket propelled grenades, rifle grenades and bombs. He was wounded on a number of occasions but miraculously survived. Eventually he could go on no longer especially as there was no end in sight to the attacks and there was no protection forthcoming from any police or military authority. His shop is now occupied by an Albanian who makes his living in the premises of a man who now is no longer allowed to make a living in his own property. In the new Kosovo, property does not belong to the person who owns it, it belongs to the person who wants it.

…Prostitution became big business in Vitina after the UÇK cleared the town. One big brothel was opened in front of the church. Pedja said that there were no brothels there before the NATO bombing. Some of the terrorists were well known to the Serbs and came from the nearby villages of Binac and Kabash. Others as mentioned before were strangers and had never been seen before in the town.

… On 2 November, 1999 [Pedja’s uncle Slobodan] had ventured out knowing that he was taking a risk but had decided to go as they needed food so he went to the green market to buy vegetables. He was returning home with two bags of food when someone came up to him and shot him in the back. The man who killed him was called Sadik. UNMIK/KFOR in this case actually caught him some time later. Apparently, an Albanian friend of Slobodan’s had actually gone to the police to report him. Pedja told me that this Sadik was kept in custody for some months and even though he, Sadik, admitted the killing[,] he was released because according to the judge there was not enough evidence. At that point Pedja says he lost hope. Many times after that he would stand in front of his house waiting for the Albanians to throw a bomb at him as it would put him out of his misery. He could not end his own life as he is a practising Christian.

Although there was the constant threat, although the circumstances were horrific[,] he became used to it, almost numb to it…On 27 April, 2001 Pedja celebrated his birthday and some of his friends came to his house and they had a few beers. A few days later his friend Sasha Dodic who was only 17 years old came to see him to celebrate his birthday. On his way to Pedja’s house he was killed by the UÇK. They also tried to kill Sasha’s sister Tijana and his other friend Vladan but they managed to escape. …

Pedja points out that Kosovo is not a place where normal human beings can live. He says that Serbs are a spiritual people. They have a strong tradition of visiting the graves of their dead ones. Pedja buried his grandmother in Belgrade when she died two years later. Both his father and his uncle are also buried in Belgrade as he knew it would be impossible to visit their graves in Vitina. Moreover, many Serbian Orthodox graveyards have been vandalised all across Kosovo and in some they have been completely demolished. …

Pedja feels no animosity towards the ordinary US KFOR soldiers in whose area of responsibility Vitina lies. He understands that many of the rank and file are often poorly educated, and from poor backgrounds. He thinks that they are often good guys but very naïve. One of them told Pedja that they were told that they had come to Kosovo to fight the Serbs. Pedja makes the point that US KFOR was strictly correct in their behaviour in the sense that they did nothing wrong. It is just Pedja adds, that they did nothing to help.

Since the arrival of NATO troops in 1999, 51 Serbs have been killed in Vitina and the surrounding villages; 56 Serbs have been wounded; 97 apartments have been illegally occupied; 73 Serbian houses have been occupied illegally and 50 other houses have been mined, burnt and or semi destroyed. 19 Roma houses have been occupied illegally. The rest have sold up and left…As I left my meeting with Pedja he said in a resigned tone that all Serbs will leave Kosovo. Today there is no Vitina. It has been Albanised to ‘Viti’.

…What I have written was done in great haste to counteract the lies and in an attempt to bring the truth out about what has been happening in Kosovo since NATO troops entered the province with the UÇK hot on their heels in June 1999. The stories I have written are twelve stories of particular individuals or of persons in particular villages; there are thousands of such stories and hundreds of thousands since the genocide of the Serbian people began.

It was not just the killings, kidnappings, destruction of churches, monasteries, whole villages and communities and the systematic injustices inflicted upon those who were deemed less equal, it was not just the glib manner of the various representatives of the various international organisations who lied through their teeth to deny the obvious truth. …

It was not just the smoke screen laid down by UNMIK, NATO, the EU, OSCE to cover up what was really happening. It was not just my outrage at seeing everything turned on its head, where all the laws, conventions, standards and norms that the so-called developed, civilised countries proclaimed fall to ashes and empty words. But it was not just that.

What unfolded was not the work of a handful of random UÇK terrorists shooting up their local district. It was a campaign that was systematic, organised, well thought out and well supported logistically. The campaign targeted every ethnic group including Albanians who did not approve of the new reality. …

A darkness has descended upon Kosovo that stifles attempts to see the truth, let alone tell it…Some ordinary Albanians in Kosovo have been useful sources of information in verifying details in the stories, although understandably no names are mentioned. They too fear for the present and their future. The main thing I object to is the hateful ideology and the methods of the UÇK who have now become the real power in Kosovo, notwithstanding what UNMIK and KFOR prattle on about.

One thing is striking, and that is the beauty of the people who still have not learned to hate despite everything…
