The conflict in Bosnia continues unabated. Enclave after enclave falls to the Serbs as the Western governments and the UN dillydally deliberately. The United States Senate earned the anger of Britain, France and Germany when it voted 69-29 to end U.S. participation in the British-led U.N. arms embargo on Bosnia. Senate Majority leader Bob Dole renewed his campaign to lift the arms embargo on the Bosnian government. Serb attacks on the "safe areas" was too much for the Senate to stomach.
"Two have fallen. Three are under attack", he said. "When do we make a decision? When we have no safe areas left?"
Already the figures have changed and two more enclaves have been burned and looted.
The British and the French and their European brothers are apparently upset. Each have their own hidden agendas. The Serbs, as we all should know, have been the traditional allies of Britain in both World Wars.
The British government also wants to appease the Russians who, along with the British, are the two main parties that have directly or indirectly contributed to the bloodshed in Bosnia. Russia has warned that if the U.S. lifts the embargo on the Bosnian government, they would consider doing the same for the Serbs.
However, this statement is a joke. The Russians have already supplied millions of dollars worth of arms to the Serbs. A report in the Aviation Week and Space Technology, in its issue dated July 31, speaks of SAM missiles to the Serbs. Other countries too have helped in breaking the so-called sanctions. The Butcher of Bosnia, General Ratko Mladic whose pictures were splashed in papers joking with Canadian soldiers, killed in cold blood Colonel Avdo Palic, the Bosnian Muslim defense Commander of Zepa.
As the bloodshed in Bosnia continued, the British Prime Minister John Major and French President Chirac had an extended lunch!
The Bosnians were not so lucky. Not only they had no lunch but their bodies were being shattered. Their children were being blown away by Serb artillery. The British and the French want the warring parties to talk. Why did Britain not talk to Hitler? Why did it go to war over Poland in 1939? Hitler's drive into Europe was a picnic compared to the Serbs, who are attacking an independent country recognized by the U.N.
Harrowing tales of mass murder and rape by the Serbs at Srebrenica have failed to arouse the so called British sense of justice and fair-play. However, as readers should know, this should not be surprising.
An Arab poet said: "O people of Sarajevo, If you were Christians, armies of bishops would have come to your rescue. If you were Jews, the blood of the Serbs would have run in the valleys."
These words should be imprinted in our souls. The whole poem should be learnt by heart and by every child, woman and man.
For years I scoffed at this conspiracy theory propagated by many in the East. Old wives' tales was how I described them.
Against my better judgment, I am forced to admit it is true. These people are never going to rest until they wipe the Muslims out of Europe and subjugate them elsewhere.
Like the American Indian in the reservations and the Blacks in the Townships our countries will be zoned. We will, however, serve a purpose and that will be to buy their goods. This neo-colonialism will reduce us to the level of serfs.
The Serbs have been attacking areas deliberately made defenseless by the conniving British and European governments. Fifteen thousand Bosnian children have had their legs and arms amputated; Tens of thousands more suffered the same fate as Major and Chirac were having their two hour long lunch.
The suffering caused by the U.N. action, deliberately planned by Butrous Ghali and the British government, should be remembered by us all. The same fate could befall us.
British and European children will be packing their bags for their vacations. While in Bosnia Muslim boys and girls are being packed in cloth to be buried in shallow graves.
A generation of Bosnian children have been scarred for life by the evil acts of the Serbs.
How can the Western leaders be oblivious to this. How can Major and others who themselves are husbands and fathers fail to be moved by all this.
However, why should we blame the Serbs or the British. They all have an agenda of their own. In "The Spectator" issue of June 10, 1995, Noel Malcolm described in detail the anti-Bosnian misinformation campaign being conducted by the British government and the U.N. The U.N. itself concealed the massacres of the unarmed Muslim civilians in Srebrenica. The great British game of duplicity started with Lieutenant General Sir Michael Rose who made false accusations against the Muslims in a television program.
High ranking British officials also fed "misinformation" to several British papers.
Malcom Rifkind, the British Foreign Secretary has advisors who are openly pro-Serb such as David Hart.
The British army personnel in the U.N. force have their own agenda. In one British commanding officers mess, the Bosnian Muslims were referred to as the "wogs." This was a term which the British used in an insulting manner to describe the Indians and the Chinese. All those who are there in Bosnia under the U.N. mandate, be they British, French, German, Norwegian, have openly exhibited their disdain for the Muslims.
I have now come to the firm belief that the conspiracy theory is not a theory. It exists. We are being threatened. The fight between our two civilizations has not begun now. It began a long time ago.
But what can we do? Do we just stand and wait or do we atleast lift a hand before it is amputated.
The time has now come for jihad. Ali Hussein Shobokshi, a prominent Saudi businessman having a deep understanding of Western politics and economic working, said that the new Crusaders aim at wiping the Muslims out from Europe. The connivance of international organization, the UN, the Western governments has one objective - the elimination of all Muslims in the Balkans.
However, I would like to add that the Balkans will not be "a line in the sand", as Bush put it during the Gulf crisis when hundreds of thousands of Western troops were ready in a matter of moments.
The jihad that we should start should begin with ourselves. It is a "Jihad Al-Nafs".
Lest some Western diplomat might have an image of turbaned men on horses wielding their swords and charging ahead, I would stress again, it is a Jihad Al Nafs.
We should look at the whole matter in a cool and dispassionate manner. It is now confirmed that all this drama of feeding and protecting Bosnians is a bluff. How then can we protect ourselves? By sacrifice. Let us give up our worldly pleasures. Let us work hard to make our countries strong.
Instead of pointing the fingers at others we should be aiming at productivity and self sufficiency. Petty squabbles and rivalry as such that exist on our scene should be made a thing of the past. Let us return to our roots. We are all awed by this world and all things in it that are beautiful. But there is another World that awaits us and which is permanent.
It is more important for us to live in this world with dignity. Tipu Sultan, the last Muslim king of Mysore said as he picked his sword to fight the advancing British: "It is better to live like a lion for one day than a jackal for a hundred."
Allah has promised us more:
O ye who believe! Shall I lead you to a bargain that will save you from a grievous Chastisement?
That ye believe in Allah and His Messenger, and that ye strive (your utmost) in the Cause of Allah, with your wealth and your persons. That will be best for you, if ye but knew!
He will forgive you your sins, and admit you to Gardens beneath which rivers flow and to beautiful mansions in Gardens of Eternity. That is indeed the supreme Triumph.
And another (favor will he bestow), which ye do love , help from Allah and a speedy victory. So give the Glad Tidings to the Believers.
O ye who believe! Be ye helpers of Allah. As said Jesus the son of Mary to the Disciples, "Who will be my helpers to (the work of) Allah?" Said the Disciples, "We are Allah's helpers!" Then a portion of the children of Israel believed, and a portion disbelieved. But we gave power to those who believed against their enemies and they became the ones that prevailed. - (Surat: 61, Versions-10, 11, 12, 13, and 14)

When you have a already established Nation that all ethnic groups

Because whoever hates that Nation and wants to destroy it and
create other smaller Nations they are the first that will strike
and they are the aggressors.
Sometimes the aggressors can strike and die thinking the enemy is
That's what happened in Yugoslavia, Serbs loved Yugoslavia and had
no reason for War but when attacked they retaliated and the rest
