the Kosovo Battle... after june 10, it was the doctors, nurs- es and then officials who started fleeing Peć first Now, the Latin inscriptions KLa-NaTO, KLa-NaTO-CLiNTON- iTaLia flaunt in Peć together with the state flags of alba- nia. There are more and more of such graffiti.
The house robberies in the city go on. if i have a chance these days, i will tell KFOR italian General Del Vecchio: “You won, Mr. General. You destroyed the heart of the Ser- bian people homeland. What was started and was not fin- ished by Mussolini and Hitler in 1941, it was completed by NaTO. it killed the body of the Serbian Orthodox people in Kosovo and Metohija, in our Old Serbia. But, you know, you cannot take the soul from us. You cannot pluck the Kosovo covenant from our hearts... Should I forget you Ko- sovo—my Serbian Jerusalem, may my right hand be forgot- ten, may my right hand be cursed!, the Serbs will sing by their own and foreign rivers, as once the jewish people did by the rivers of Babylon...
it was with difficulty that the italian general consented to give escort to a convoy of exiles: over 150 cars, tractors and an occasional truck, alas, left in front of the Patriarch- ate and from the city. Metohija remained empty... Vito- mirica, a Serb-Montenegrin village near Peć keeps chang- ing her mind. Belo Polje goes away. about 50 most helpless Serbs remained in the monastery, waiting to be transport- ed to Montenegro.
“The man is afraid of their shadows,” said a Montene- grin woman married to an albanian. “Now the albanian- sare doing what those who came from abroad did, “Franky’s Boys” and others!”
There is no doubt that in this war, too the albanians suffered in a similar way because of some members of our forces but—can this be a cover for this much evildoing? Why does europe allow here what she would never allow anyone in her own backyard—that criminals take justice into their own hands and rampage through villages and towns across the country with impunity for days?
it goes without saying that in the eyes of the Church no one’s bloody provocations can serve as justification for the inhumanity of any party. But heavenly-earthly justice to which the Church forever reminds and calls us, that in fact wedonotdotopeoplewhatwedonotwantthemtodoto us and that “evil cannot bring forth anything good” as the people expressed in the famous dictum “as you sow, so shall you reap”—is one thing. However, the real life of sinful peo- ple is another...
if it is at all appropriate to speak of “provoking” the crime, we may also speak about it in this way, too. Those who ar- gue that ethnic albanians were “provoked” to such revenge by (real or imaginary) crimes of the Serbian party, forget that during the past decades, especially since 1981 and es- pecially during 1998, the albanian terrorists themselves more than “caused” bloody vengeance or punishment, what- ever it is called, by vandalisms, kidnappings and killings of the Serbian farmers, citizens, police officers and soldiers.
The Chronicles of the Renewed Crucifixion of Kosovo
if the actions of the terrorist “KLa” from the nineties were, apparently, caused by Ranković’s crimes during the suffocation of the albanian rebellion from December to February 1945, and later, until the exclusion of aleksandar Ranković from the Titoist communist camarilla, the ques- tion is: had not the latter been “provoked” by the crimes of the albanian Ballists against the Kosovo Serbs during the Nazi-Fascist occupation [1941–1944]? ...Тhe bloody cycle of revenge and lawlessness in Kosovo and Metohija is too long-lasting and too complicated and perplexed to be re- duced only to its contemporary participants and subjected to rational criteria and superficial solutions offered by the “multi-culti” Western minds, devoid of depth of experi- ence of Balkan historical reality, sealed by centuries-old Christian martyrdom and confession of entire nations. The minds that perhaps only now, faced with such a phenom- enon on their own doorsteps, with the increasingly de- manding Muslim minorities across the continent, are be- ginning to understand what it means to use force to im- pose co-existence with a militant immigration which, in your own yard, imposes its laws while trying to melt you and drown you in its own flood.
just as the invasive albanianism during the last two or three hundred years has melted into itself the great mass of the Serbian people who, in order to survive under the Ot- tomans, converted to islam in albania, Kosovo and Meto- hija, Macedonia, Greece and Montenegro, and out of “fear of the albanians” began to speak the albanian language with one another in their homes, so after several genera- tions these new albanians became “angry arnauts” in both body and soul.
it remains a disturbing fact that both executioners and their victims, in this Kosovo-Metohija slaughtering, have often the same, only albanized Serbian names and last names: Bojkaj (adem)—Bojković (adam), Mavraj (Stje- fen)—Mavrić (Stevan), Milaku (Fatmir)—Milaković (Sreć- ko), Stojkaj (Djerdj)—Stojković (Djordje), Rakosi (Sokol)— Raković (Golub), Kojçiqi (endjelj)—Kojčić (andjelko), Djo- kaj (Vojsava)—Djokić (Vojislava), Maçkaj (Miftar)—Mač- kić (Mitar), Kotori (Veli)—Kotarčić (Veljko), Žarku (isuf )— Žarković (josif ), Przaku (Ramadan)—Przić, Przaković (Ra- doman), Radonjiqi (Pjeter)—Radonjić (Petar), Vidušići (Faik)—Vidušić (jordan), Krivačaj (Shklzen)—Krivčević (Svetozar), Spasu or Spasi (Gazmend)—Spasić (Veseljko), Bogići (ibrahim)—Bogić(ević) (avram), Petrovci (Kresnik)— Petrović (Kresoje), Radovisi-Radovići (Mustaf )—Radović (Mirko), Vesiqi (Luleta)—Vesić (Ljiljana), even Vojvoda (Murat)—Vojvoda, Vojvodić (Željko)...
We have forgotten and probably many Greek brothers have, too, how many fervent prayers St. Cosmas of aetolia, the New Martyr, offered to God and teachings to the Or- thodox Christian people, especially in epirus, imploring them not to renounce Christ and adhere to Muhammad, sinking into the nationality and language of their occupiers and enemies, in the times of Ottoman occupation of the Christian Orthodox Balkans in the 18th century, the cen-
