In a video being circulated of a British Channel 4 interview with Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Muslim-born Dutch MP and author whom fellow Muslims are trying to kill, Ali describes the biggest threat facing us, or rather its favored path to reaching us:
“What worries me is the huge lobby that is being set up, with money, to influence Western governments and Western media to avoid the subjects I deal with because they are ‘offensive.’ The forces that have silenced Theo Van Gogh will stop at nothing and they will not only use violence, they will use every possible means that they have. They will use money, they will use influence, they will use emotional blackmail, to silence me and other individual Muslims who are critical of Islam.”
NOW are we getting some clue as to how it came to be that in 1999 we committed the might of the United States Air Force and NATO to fight an Islamo-nationalist jihad against a multi-ethnic Christian nation on behalf of Muslims in the Balkans? And how it will come to be that this year we’ll hand Kosovo over to the terrorists who have spent the seven years since purchasing Kosovo’s never-promised independence from our Congress with their blood-stained money?
Just one example of the kind of threat Ms. Ali is talking about was French journalist Jacques Merlino’s 1993 interview with James Harff, president of Ruder Finn Global Public Affairs:
HARFF: For eighteen months we have been working for the Republic of Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina, as well as for the opposition in Kosovo. Throughout this period, we had many successes, giving us a formidable international image. We intend to take advantage of this and develop commercial agreements with these countries. Speed is vital, because items favorable to us must be settled in public opinion. The first statement counts. The retractions have no effect. …
MERLINO: What achievement were you most proud of?
HARFF: To have managed to move the Jewish opinion to our side. This was extremely delicate, as the dossier involved a major danger. [Croatian] President Tudjman was too imprudent in his book, “Wastelands: Historical Truth.” A reading of his text could find him guilty of anti-Semitism. In Bosnia, the situation was no better: President Izetbegovic, in his book, “The Islamic Declaration,” strongly supported the creation of a fundamentalist Islamic state [in Bosnia]. Moreover, the Croatian and Bosnian past was marked by a real and cruel anti-Semitism. Tens of thousands of Jews perished in Croatian camps. So there was every reason for intellectuals and Jewish organizations to be hostile towards the Croats and Bosnians. Our challenge was to reverse this attitude. And we succeeded masterfully.
At beginning of August 1992, the New York Newsday came out with the affair of (Serb) concentration camps. We jumped at the opportunity immediately. We outwitted three big Jewish organizations. B’Nai Brith Anti-Defamation League, the Jewish Committee, and the American Jewish Congress. We suggested to them to publish an advertisement in the New York Times and to organize demonstrations outside the U.N.
This was a tremendous coup. When the Jewish organizations entered the game on the side of the (Muslim) Bosnians, we could promptly equate the Serbs with the Nazis in the public mind.
The dossier was a complex one. Nobody understood what was going on in (former) Yugoslavia. The great majority of Americans were probably asking themselves in which African country Bosnia was situated. But, by a single move, we were able to present a simple story of good guys and bad guys which would hereafter play itself.
We won by targeting Jewish audience, the right target. Almost immediately there was a clear change of language in the press, with the use of words with high emotional content, such as ethnic cleansing, concentration camps, etc. which evoked inmates of Nazi Germany and the gas chambers of Auschwitz. The emotional change was so powerful that nobody could go against it…
MERLINO: But when you did all this, between 2 and 5 of August 1992, you had no proof that what you said was true. You only had the two articles in Newsday.
HARFF: Our work is not to verify information. We are not equipped for that. Our work is to accelerate the circulation of information favorable to us, to aim them at carefully chosen targets. We did not claim that there were death camps in Bosnia, we just made it known that Newsday claimed it.
MERLINO: Are you aware that you took on a grave responsibility?
HARFF: We are professionals. We had a job to do and we did it. We are not paid to moralize. And when the time comes to start a debate on all of this, we have a clear conscience. For, if you wish to prove that Serbs are in fact poor victims, go ahead, but you will be quite alone.
This huge PR campaign was taking place while Balkan Muslim and Croat interests here were purchasing a bipartisan slate of lawmakers including John McCain, Bob Dole, Eliot Engel, Tom Lantos, Joe Lieberman and others.
There is finally a movement to turn back this tide–a tide that means to form a “Greater Albania” as part of the overall objective to establish Caliphate rule of the globe. The movement’s name is the American Council for Kosovo, and its site is SaveKosovo.org.
The Albanian lobby, founded by former Congressman Joe DioGuardi, is actively attempting to foil this effort. They are calling themselves by the same name (American Council for Kosovo), they have set up a copycat website with their misspelled version of ‘Kosovo’ at an almost identical URL, and have already tried to crash our site.
