America’s Rogue State: Kosovo and Islamic Imperialism

Kosovo declared independence amid the kind celebration that should shame American supporters of the Albanian Muslims:

In the capital, Pristina, the mood was jubilant. Thousands of ethnic Albanians braved subfreezing temperatures to ride on the roofs of their cars, singing patriotic songs and chanting: “KLA! KLA!” the acronym for the now-disbanded rebel Kosovo Liberation Army. They waved American flags alongside the red Albanian banner imprinted with a black, double-headed eagle.

The Kosovo Liberation Army is a jihadist group that that even Human Rights Watch, who are supportive of the Albanian Muslim cause, describes as a violent terrorist group who murdered and raped Serbs, Christians and Albanians both before and after the Kosovo conflict:

As presented in the Background chapter, the KLA was responsible for serious abuses in 1998, including abductions and murders of Serbs and ethnic Albanians considered collaborators with the state. In some villages under KLA control in 1998, the rebels drove ethnic Serbs from their homes. Some of those who remained are unaccounted for and are presumed to have been abducted by the KLA and killed. According to the International Committee of the Red Cross, ninety-seven Kosovo Serbs who went missing in 1998 were still missing as of May 15, 2000.

The KLA detained an estimated eighty-five Serbs during its July 19, 1998, attack on Orahovac. Thirty-five of these people were subsequently released but the others remain missing as of August 2001. On July 22, 1998, the KLA briefly took control of the Belacevac mine near Obilic. Nine Serbs were captured that day, and they remain on the ICRC’s list of the missing.


Elements of the KLA are also responsible for post-conflict attacks on Serbs, Roma, and other non-Albanians, as well as ethnic Albanian political rivals. Immediately following NATO’s arrival in Kosovo, there was widespread and systematic burning and looting of homes belonging to Serbs, Roma, and other minorities and the destruction of Orthodox churches and monasteries. This destruction was combined with harassment and intimidation designed to force people from their homes and communities. By late-2000 more than 210,000 Serbs had fled the province; most of them left in the first six weeks of the NATO deployment. Those who remained were increasingly concentrated in mono-ethnic enclaves, such as northern Mitrovica, Kosovo Polje, or Gracanica.

Most seriously, as many as one thousand Serbs and Roma have been murdered or have gone missing since June 12, 1999. Criminal gangs or vengeful individuals may have been involved in some incidents since the war. But elements of the KLA are clearly responsible for many of these crimes. The desire for revenge provides a partial explanation, but there is also a clear political goal in many of these attacks: the removal from Kosovo of non-ethnic Albanians in order to better justify an independent state.

In other words terrorism works. The Roma mentioned above are what we’d call Gypsies and were largely innocent by-standers in the conflict. Islamists target them because of their unorthodox views and lifestyles.

The wide spread desecration of Churches and attacks on Christian minorities is under reported by our media. The fact the the crowd chanted “KLA!” at the celebration should indicated to us that they embrace the K.L.A. ideology, which includes fealty to Al-Qaeda and Islamism in general.

The K.L.A. and their ties to terror is no secret and the end result of Kosovo becoming a Muslim country with a small Christian minority is well summed up in this interview:


The K.L.A. is also supported by various Communist groups who approve of their “revolutionary violence” just as they approve of Al-Qaeda’s in Iraq, Afghanistan and across the world. They also must support the policies they believe the K.L.A. backed government would institute. Policies like the destruction of churches:


The Desecration of Christian alters and relics:


Or maybe just participating in the long standing Islamic tradition of forced sexual slavery.

In addition to the death sentence we have helped hand the Orthodox Christians in Kosovo, a belligerent Russia has seemingly decided to make it’s stand against the U.S. over this issue. Kosovo’s independence could be used as a pretext for Russian military operations in Europe, the establishment of bases in Serbia or just a return to cold war footing for our to nations, but no matter the outcome the much vaunted “blow back” of the libertarian left is on display for all the world to see.

Many on the right are straddling the fence on Kosovo, falling back of the leftist Majoritarian argument that “the will of the people” must be respected regardless of whether or not that will includes exterminating Christians and setting up the capitol of the Caliphate that Jihadists have been hoping for. We have nothing to celebrate and much to be ashamed of.

And we should be afraid. The gratitude of the American loving Albanians only goes so far after all:


We have granted the enemy a victory and created a future rogue state.
