In Rememberance of 350,000 Bosnian Muslims Killed By Serbs: A Perspective On Our Outrage At Russia

By Motaher Chowdhury

When I see all the propaganda being pushed by the West, Europe, America and the U.K’s government and politicians about how cruel it is of Putin to invade the Ukraine my blood boils at the hypocrisy of these nations and politicians because it is these very same nations and their respective governments and politicians- self promoted champions of international justice and human rights-who sat by as the Serbs carried out one of the worst genocidal atrocities the modern world has witnessed against the Muslims of Bosnia. If these nations had acted or reacted in a third of the way they are bending over to condemn Russia then hundreds of thousands of lives would have been saved in Bosnia. While they don’t have the military might against Russia to stop the Ukrainian invasion they most definitely had a vast supremacy over the Serbs to have halted them instantly.

However the tragedy is they all sat back and watched and encouraged the rape and genocide of the Bosnian Muslims.

Let me put some perspective on the massive outrage being levelled at Russia by recalling the consequences our unwillingness to intervene produced:

Approximately 100,000 Muslims were martyred.

60,000 women and girls were raped.

One and a half million people were abandoned.

Christiana Amanpour of CNN spoke about the memory of the Bosnian massacres, and asks:

Does history repeat itself?

She comments on the memory of Bosnia:

“It was a Medieval war of killing, blockade and starvation of Muslims, and Europe refused to intervene saying that it was a civil war. That was a myth.”

The Holocaust lasted for about 4 years, during which the Serbs demolished more than 800 mosques, some of which were built in the 16th century.

They burned the Sarajevo Historical Library.

The United Nations interfered and placed two gates at the entrances of Muslim’s cities such as Goraga, Srebrenica, Zepa.

But they were under siege and fire and their protection did nothing.

The Serbs put thousands of Muslims in detention camps, tortured them, and starved them, until they became skeletons!

When a Serb commander was asked: Why? He said,

“Because they don’t eat pork!

The Guardian published” The days of the Bosnian Massacres”, a full-page map showing the locations of the rape camps of Muslim women, 17 huge camps, some within Serbia itself.

The Serbs raped children. A 4-year-old girl, blood running between her legs. The Guardian published a report on it entitled:

“The child whose guilt is being a Muslim.”

Butcher Mladic invited the Leader of the Muslims in Zepa to a meeting. He gave him a cigarette, laughed with him a little, then swooped on him and slaughtered him.

The most famous crime was the siege of Srebrenica, the international soldiers (crusaders) were together with the Serbs, dancing, and some bargained for Muslim women regarding their chastity, in exchange for a bite of food.

The Serbs had besieged

Srebrenica for two years during which the shelling didn’t stop for a moment.

The Serbs were also taking a large part of the aid meant to go to the Muslim towns.

Then the West decided to hand it over to the wolves. The Dutch battalion protecting Srebrenica conspired with the Serbs. They pressed Muslims to surrender their weapons in exchange for safety. The Muslims bowed after being tortured and punished.

After having given False Guarantees the Serbs swooped on Srebrenica.

They isolated the males from their females. They gathered 12,000 males (boys and men) and massacred them in different forms.

One Serb stood on a Muslim man, and he carved on his face the image of the Orthodox Cross….

As for the women, they were assaulted regarding their honor and some of them were burned … others were left in the open heat to die slowly.

The slaughter continued for days in Srebrenica. Its fall was in late July 1995

A mother was holding the hand of a Serbian man saying .. “Please do not slaughter my son”, so he cut her hand and then placed his cut off head in front of her eyes!

After the slaughter of Srebrenica … Butcher Radovan Karagic entered the city, and openly declared: “Srebrenica was always Serbian and has now returned to the hands of the Serbs terrorists.”

The Serbs were raping the Muslim women, and they were holding them for 9 months until they gave birth.

Why?

A Serbian told a Western newspaper “We want Muslim women to give birth to Serb babies”

We remember Bosnia, Sarajevo, Banja Luka and Srebrenica.

We will mention it forever.

We will not forget the Balkans.

We will not forget Palestine.

We will not forget Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan …

A British newspaper described the genocide of Muslims in Bosnia in this phrase:

“War of the twentieth century waged in the style of the middle centuries!”

Let’s deal with our own home grown war criminals like Bush or Blair before we start preaching human rights and justice to others!
