Bosnians have no constitutional right to vote and decide about Serbia and Croatia so why should Serbs and Croats have a constitutional right to do so in Bosnia?

     1. Bosnian citizenship

This privilege should be given only to those either born in Bosnia or naturalized citizens who want Bosnia to be their nation and they declare themselves as Bosnian in terms of nationality as well as in terms of belonging to Bosnian People.  Double citizenships between Bosnia and other countries in Balkans need to be blocked and reversed.

     2. voting rights and making decisions about Bosnia and Bosnian people

Bosnian people have not been given legal right to vote and decide about Serbia and Croatia so why should Serbs and Croats have a legal right to do so in Bosnia? Voting rights in Bosnia should be given only to Bosnians, instead of giving Bosnian ciztizenship only to 3 ethnic groups who then have the privileges that the rest of the Bosnians cant have.

Do you really believe that after all what Bosnia went through - Bosnians willingly gave the constitutional rights and privileges to Serbs and Croats to rule over Bosnia?

Of course Bosnan People never did.
Sarajevska Princeza


Bosnian friendship and love relationships

Bosnians culturally value friendship and social life. In Bosnia friendship between men and women is accepted and popular. Bosnians travel together with friends and like to be in groups. Having coffees is also Bosnian tradition. Coffee shops are all over the places.

Bosnians have a habit to meet a friend or a neighbor on the street going home from shopping, and they spontaneously decide to have a coffee at that very moment. Bosnians go out Monday trough Sunday. In Sarajevo, Friday and Saturday night is every night!!

Bosnians know everything about each other, such as who you are, your family, relatives, cousins, where do you live, where did you go to school, where do you work. T
hey often ask you if you are married or do you have a girlfriend/boyfriend up front, as soon as they meet you.

Bosnian Coffee

Meeting for coffee or drinks is always friendship. If a man suggest "to have a dinner", to Bosnians this demonstrates clear serious romantic interest.

Europeans, just like Bosnians do not date more than one person at the time. It is NOT acceptable to multi-date and look around who is a better romantic prospect while already going out romantically with someone. It's considered inappropriate ( cheating ).
In Bosnia it is normal to be platonic friends. Either you are that or a boyfriend/girlfriend.

 Bosnians do not have talks about exclusive or monogamous relationships. It is assumed automatically that if you are interested in a romantic relationship, that relationship is monogamous and exclusive. It is also assumed you have honorable intentions.
Affection, hugging and kissing is accepted in public places for younger people. People generally don't fear commitment, they often recommend their own friends and relatives all the time! Its not a big deal.

When Bosnians use others or cheat, they are often not respected in society and people do not want to be in their circles. Also womanizing is highly undesirable, flirting with many people, not being loyal, having many partners in many different places and for many different reasons etc. Its true that some people are not honest and cheat or deceive, but culturally such behavior in Bosnia is highly disapproved. Bosnian friends and families protect and tell each other when they see partner doing anything inappropriate, people talk and give you information.

Bosnians generally marry the first or the second love.


Sarajevo girls love fashion

Fashion embraces every culture, every country and background in some shape or form. Bosnia is a mix of the Eastern and the Western influences. Both worlds have something great to offer.  I came across of beautiful blog by Sarajevo girl, a lover of fashion from Bosnia Mamy-Baby.   Link: Here Blog has lots of ideas for multicultural and multireligious Bosnia, that is what defines Bosnia and makes the country unique!

This is the best  fashion blog I ever came across. Everything that I saw on this blog, I like. That does not happen often.

Mamy-Baby has another blog for Teens and Children as well. 
Link: Here.

In Bosnia the East and West are both accepted.

Once I wore an Indian red traditional party dress for the wedding of my friend's relative. 
That Indian dress IS equally fashionable and good to East just like the cocktail party black dress in the West. They are the same thing - just different.

this... so cute. Here are links of fashion blog again:

Bosnian Mountain Sheepdog

Native to Bosnia - Bosnian Mountain Sheepdog. So cute. This Bosnian sheepdog is originating from Bosnian mountain called Vlasic. Dog is huge and has beautiful coat. Many Bosnians who live in villages have this dog.

Bosnians call this dog "Bosanski Tornjak".

My father had one as a child. I had a different one. Mine was a gun sporting/hunting dog (
Chocolate Labrador Retriever ). This is the most intelligent dog you can ever have. Always happy.  Full of energy, very alert and active.

As a puppy so adorable. I just love this dog.

If you want one, I think this woman has really good healthy dogs.

Bosnian Nationality vs. Bosnian Ethnicity

 Bosnian Nationality
People who admit Bosnia as their own country ( naturalized citizens ) and/or are born in Bosnia are automatically Bosnians by default.

Nationality is declaration of belonging to the country. The passport shows your nationality. If your passport says - Bosnia - your nationality is Bosnian.
You can change your nationality.

Ethnicity of Bosnian People

Ethnicity is who were your ancestors, your mother, father, grandfather, grandmother, grand grand father ( where they came from originally ). Ethnicity is not nationality.

When someone says they are Ethnic Bosnians, they are saying their ancestors originate from Bosnia. Their parents were born in Bosnia. And in some cases their grandparents, and grand grand parents as well.

All ethnic groups belong to one People ( People of the nation they declare their own and where they were born ). Those People represent the Bosnian Nation. There are tons of many different ethnic groups in every country.

The ethnic belonging is irrelevant. It has no legality in itself. What is on your passport ( your nationality ) is what legally matters.

Religion of Bosnian People

Religion is your belief. Just like anywhere else Bosnian people are of different religious and non religious beliefs.

In fact there is a very good belief test that I am going to post here that tells you in what percentage your belief system reflects what religion. Every person is different and has different thoughts, ideas, and beliefs.

Examples of different nationalities

Bosnia = Bosnian nation made of  Bosnian People = Bosnian national/Bosnian

Usa = American nation made of American People = American national/American

Croatia = Croatian nation made of Croatian People = Croatian national/Croat

Slovenia = Slovenian nation Slovenian People = Slovenian national = Slovenian

Serbia= Serbian nation Serbian People - Serbian national = Serb/Serbian

As you can see here every country has one Nation and one People.

 Who are the Ethnic Serbs and Ethnic Croats in Bosnia?

When somebody says they are Ethnic Serbs, they are saying their ancestors originate from Serbia. Or Ethnic Croats, they are saying their ancestors originate from Croatia. Ethnic Serbs and ethnic Croats in Bosnia are still Bosnians and actually mostly Ethnic Bosnians even though they may ( often not knowingly ) claim otherwise.

Many actually never visited Serbia nor Croatia and their ancestors are more often than not born in Bosnia. Calling them Ethnic Serbs or Ethnic Croats ( if originating from Bosnia ) is false. They are told ( instructed ) to declare themselves as non-Bosnian in ethnicity by Serbian & Croatian nationalists for the purpose of dividing Bosnian territory. Do not participate in such act because that is what causes war in Balkan region.

Neighbouring countries Serbia and Croatia can only make trouble in Bosnia through luring Ethnic Bosnians to abandon who they are and lean towards either Serbian & Croatian Ethnic and National Identities for the purpose of division of Bosnian territory and adding it to their own countries. This is what the core of the problem in that region is.  And that is what they did! This needs to be corrected in speech and in writing. See below:

Bosnian People ( bosanskohercegovacki narod ) includes all ethnic groups in Bosnia including ethnic Serbs and ethnic Croats and many others.

The role of the Serbian Orthodox Church in ethnic cleansing in Bosnia

Bosnian people of all religions suffered a lot because of Serbian Orthodox Church. The Church played a huge role in ethnic cleansing in Bosnia.

They lured people of orthodox religion to join this killing "in the name of God". Their justification was to "save the Serbs" from extinction in the countries they do not even admit as theirs.

Bosnian people of orthodox religion in reality have no real authentic Bosnian Church. All churches in Bosnia are basically renamed, taken over and re-established as Serbian churches.
When I say "Serbian Orthodox Church" I am talking about the church from another country - Serbia.

You would think, when you say Church - that the entire point is to support peace, right? Here is the picture how orthodox priest is "BLESSING" the paramilitary Serbian formations just a little before actual attack on Srebrenica, Bosnia where genocide took place.

The Serbian Orthodox Priest blessing armed paramilitary
Serbian solder(s)

The picture above is a screen shot from released video footage showing a Serb Orthodox priest blessing the paramilitary soldiers on June 25, 1995 just a few days before the soldiers were to be transferred to Srebrenica where slaughter of estimated 8.000 men and boys of Bosnian nationality as young as 9 years old took place.

The ultimate goal was to kill anyone who is not a Serb.

And ethnically cleanse Bosnia, Croatia and Kosovo for the purpose of creating the fantasy land called
Greater Serbia.

Consequently: Genocide and ethnic cleansing of all non-Serbs in Bosnia

We can resolve this issue by having our own Bosnianherzegovinian ( or shortly Bosnian ) orthodox church ( for Bosnians of orthodox faith ) instead of having foreign churches in Bosnia that are obsessed with Greater Serbia ideology - and - interested in politics rather than actual spirituality and religion.

There is also a great book on this subject by
Mitja Velikonja ( in English ), called "Religious Separation and Political Intolerance in Bosnia-Herzegovina". read here

Whoever is interested to clearly understand this region must read this book. On page 265, Velikonja gave many examples of the Serbian church support for:

- Serb extremists and
- war criminals in Bosnia, Croatia and Kosovo.

Such was also a  relationship with Serb war criminal Arkan.

When Serb Patriarch Pavle met with him, he presented Arkan with a gift of Saint Nicola statue approving him and according to some sources helping in organization, financing and arming his militia. Serb Bishop Vasilij personally traveled from Bosnia to Serbia to attend Arkan's wedding in February of 1995.

Myths about Orthodoxy and holly Serbs began to emerge. This is not different from how Hitler incorporated religion in his "vision" to eliminate 12 millions of Jews. Now you think this can not happen again. Well this CAN happen, it happened multiple times and it will happen again.

Some people are blindly following whatever someone from religious institutions or their group tells them without critical evaluation on their part. It is a groupthink.

Groupthink is a psychological phenomenon that can occur in groups of people. Rather than critically evaluating information, the group members begin to form quick opinions that match the group consensus without taking personal responsibility. Groupthink seems to occur most often when a respected or persuasive leader is present, inspiring members to agree with his or her opinion.

  • group think - psychology
    • illusion of invulnerability
    • rationalization of past decisions
    • unquestioned belief in the group's morality
    • stereotyped view of opponent
    • conformity pressure
    • self-censorship
    • illusion of unanimity
    • mindguards )

  • Groupthink: read more here

    Janis, Irving L.  (1982).  Groupthink: Psychological Studies of Policy Decisions and Fiascoes.  Second Edition.  New York: Houghton Mifflin.

The Serbian Church blessed military criminals, spread and also justified stereotypes about Bosnians, Croats, Kosovars and anyone who is not Serbian calling them Turks and all kinds of awkward names.

At the same time, it denied indisputable evidence of Serb held concentration camps, genocide, ethnic cleansing and other Serb crimes calling it a hoax.

There are reports of forced conversation of people to Orthodoxy and changing their names into Serbian. This forced conversion was not unusual even in times of my grandmother in 1940's when Serbs in ex-Yu were converting non-orthodox population to orthodoxy.

Testimonies how Sarajevo was shelled, and innocent people, civilians, children, ordinary men and women killed by Serbian snipers

VIDEO: Serbs shooting on people I rarely read entire testimonies as they tend to be very long, however in this case I found one ( read here ) that I could not stop reading until I've read it entirely.

In this particular testimony, Mr. Charty, a prosecutor showed the photo of the area in 360 views and asked the Serbian soldier ( who was stationed in Sarajevan suburb held by Serbs, Grbavica ) to testify about snipers and what really happened.

The soldier claimed that Bosnians itself were shooting ( sniping ) from the "red building" onto their own territory, however, when asked to show if the person from targeted area could of been shot while he rotates the area in 360 degrees, waiting for him to point on something that could of been shot, nothing could of been seen!

Of course, that's because Serb soldier was not telling the truth. Serbian snipers were killing people and their supporters deny until present day any sniper fire from Sarajevan suburb held by Serbs, Grbavica despite all the evidence.

Having said that, the person who testified said he had never seen any, but later when confronted with evidence, he referred to this sniper fire as simply the "shooting" not really "sniping". In his words sniping is not the same as shooting. He said there was shooting but no sniping. To him that was somehow different... as if ...

killed by sniping or by shooting ( pointing gun at someone and killing ) is of less crime. But that was not different to families all over the world who lost their loved ones to Serbian snipers. For example look at this photo.

Snipers in Sarajevo, Getty Images

On says: "A French UN soldier and a woman give first aid to a Bosnian soldier shot by a sniper bullet on Sarajevo so-called "Sniper avenue" 21 November 1994. The Bosnian soldier died seconds later. The UN war crimes court convicted 12 December 2007 Bosnian Serb general Dragomir Milosevic of terrorising the people of Sarajevo during the siege of the Bosnian capital, and jailed him for 33 years. The judges ruled that troops under Milosevic's command shelled Sarajevo and directed sniper fire against civilians, spreading terror among the inhabitants as they queued for bread, went to xafs or were simply walking with their children."

Sarajevo sniper victims, photo by Eileen Kleinman

On this photo one civilian is shot by the Serbian sniper and another one wants to help him but is afraid and does not know what to do because he fears he will be shot too.

If you want to know why people can not hide the truth about what happened in Bosnia, and how lie is always caught at the end, read it... and of course it's good to know the facts. We all know this took place in Sarajevo, I WAS THERE. I am also glad that lost of journalists actually were in the court to testify.

"Greater Serbia" and "Greater Croatia" ideologies FAILING

Bosnia is part of democratic Europe, it is the road on which every European country is set to travel.

The hateful ideology is something that can never be achieved nor held for a very long time. And no matter how much it lasts it always fails at the end.

The only reason why Serbian and Croatian nationalists managed to fool Bosnian people of Orthodox faith ( religious or not ) and convert them into Serbs & Bosnians Catholics into Croats ( while suspending Bosnian option ) is so they can betray their own country for the purpose of division of Bosnian territory. They are using people to achieve their sick ideologies and Nazi alike country where everyone must have blue hair and blue eyes otherwise they are outcast.

The only way they could do this  is through:

1. Creation of false history,

2. Corrupted media,

3. Nationalistic propaganda, and

4. (ab)use of religious institutions

Everything that Hitler did.

He said that he is killing all Jews because that is service to God. If God wanted to kill all Jews He/She would not need Hitler to do so.

I do want to mention domestic traitors as well. There are and were people who fought and are still fighting for the interests of other countries and against their own - Bosnia.

How to deal with biggest nationalists in Balkans?

The Serbian nationalists conditioned PEOPLE to fear everybody who is unlike them ( all non Serbs ) so the children grow up believing in something which is not true - yet having no chance of finding out until it is too late and damage is already done. Then they have no point of return so they stick with them. They often identify with perpetrators defending them because this is the only way they can psychologically survive. Otherwise they would mentally brake down if someone would reveal to them that genocide and ethnic cleansing of all non-Serbs is in fact their own defeat.

They killed their own Values and Happiness they would have if they were exposed to different role models. They are forever labeled as Genocidal Nation. The world rejects them, they do not feel accepted, their country is smaller and smaller, they are forbidden to travel to other parts of the World, and the world believes they are trouble makers in Balkans. Every ex-Republic run away from them seeking independence ( which by the way have full right to do so because they entered YU union already as independent Republics that existed on their own ) and people make jokes about their phony leaders. Every second someone is in Hague for war crimes, the entire country is corrupted, they have lost according to them “the Soul and Heart” called today independent Republic of Kosova. After this goes autonomy called Vojvodina. The entity created on bones of murdered Bosnian innocent children,  women and men controlled by Nazi in our land is VERY poor. Estimated 98% of people there have no jobs. The only jobs that can do is to be 1. a criminal or 2. be a corrupted politician. They have Srebrenica, remains of concentration camps, graves around stolen homes, International Police looking for them, International Agencies searching for bones of killed people, thousands of links and hundreds of movies circulating the World about what kind of People they are. The Truth is their enemy.

So if you want to fight the nationalism:

1). Change their role models. Instead of Hitler, Mladic and Karadzic alikes, have Cosmopolitans and Pacifists instead. There is need for awakening.

2). Entity ruled by Nazi is supposed to be Multi-multi. No segregation.

3). Make course in - Logic - mandatory in elementary schools to learn that Serbs are not the holly Nation, and New Years Eve is not Serbian.

4). A few classes in Democracy and definitions of what is a Nation and what is a Religion would not hurt.

5). Independent media is lacking. If people have no other TV programs or news but nationalistic programs alone how do you expect them not to be lured and manipulated?

6). Bosnians must consistently refuse to compromise political position to obtain their freedom in their own country and insist on the Change.

Letter to my readers

This is my first letter to my readers from all over the world.

Thanks for reading my blog that I have started in 2004. I have statistics that show me from what country you are from, and  I am very proud that you like my blog. Whenever I update my blog, I go over dead links and replace them with new ones, I add references in the case I was missing some, I add missing authors of beautiful pictures on my blog ( if I find out who they are ), and I research... what is happening to Bosnian Nation according to world media ( not just Balkan media that currently dominates ).

That is why I love internet. We can find out for ourselves and compare the information from all over the world. This often gives me an opportunity to see who else is writing and following events in Bosnia. In 2004 it was unusual to find anything on "Bosnian Nation" ( Bosanska Nacija ), "Bosnian people" ( Bosanski narod ) or simply "Bosnian" in Bosnian language ( Bosanac ) for instance. People were competing who will reproduce better Bosnian map that will show current divisions, some denied Bosnian language, integrity, nation, People, and entire existence all together. Now in the year of 2008 the story is totally different.

When I started my blog in 2004 people were asking me why do I write in English and not in Bosnian. There were so many reasons why I have done that. First, Bosnians know what took place in their homeland, every single blog written by Bosnian is a Story of Bosnia. I have NOT felt strong need to tell my People AGAIN what took place in our homeland.

They know.

However, people like yourself, in the other parts of the world, may want to learn about our personal experiences and true stories because in some way, shape or form they feel Bosnian tragedy as their own. People want to know what is going to happen in the future for Bosnia, does evil win or good thing will prevail?

Another of so many other reasons why I have started my blog is also because it has therapeutic effects. At first I could not write about war because it is painful and it evokes sad memories then slowly you accept this is what took place and you got to deal with it somehow. While I don't see Bosnians as victims rather as People who carry the victory in moral sense there is no way that I could ever completely describe the losses my Nation went & is still going through.

Because I live in the US and I am "watching over" what is happening in Bosnia, I still can NOT comprehend why Bosnian people are still not constitutive people in their own country? Bosnians have rights to be constitutive people in their own country!  ( Bosanci, Bosanski narod imaju prava da budu konstitutivni u svojoj sopstvenoj drzavi )

But what makes me really happy is to see other Bosnians and people from all over the world emerging more than ever to support Bosnians reminding everyone all over again in many different ways from art, music, film, drama, writings, books to blogs - Bosnians want their constitutional rights & their country back.

This is the video of how many Bosnians feel that way. The video is made on November 25th, the Bosnian Independence Day.

This video is from a lovely Facebook page with 9,320 members created by Sarajevo born, young Bosnian man - Nedim Racic.

As of 01/2010 - 11,175 members. And the number is growing.

What would you do if you were in Srebrenica with your family on July 11, 1995?

In the video #5, see below, war criminal Serb Ratko Mladic said:

"Here we are on July 11, 1995 in Serbian Srebrenica ( Serbs just occupied it ) for another Serbian big holiday -- we are giving this city to you as a gift and finally the moment came to revenge against the Turks on this territory!".

Turkish Ottoman Empire was in Balkans hundreds of years ago. Ottomans are already dead. Bosnians are not Turks, in fact they had own Bosnian Kingdom that has been occupied like so many other countries in the past by Turkish Ottoman Empire, Austro-Hungary, Nazi Germany and now Serbs. They have nothing to do with Ottoman Empire which by the way doesn't exist any longer. Bosnians are multiethnic and multireligious members of Bosnian Nation! Yet under Ratko Mladic's order entire Bosnian population who stayed there in Srebrenica were murdered except a few who escaped through the mountains and managed to survive.

How genocide happened in Srebrenica?

Video #1 Part 1

Video #2 Part 2

Video #3 Part3

Video #4 Part 4

Video #5 Part 5

Imagine you are happily living in the village as a child, a young person, a civilian, a mother or a father... You don't have any guns and you can't defend your family, your home, your children, your old mother and father, and cousins neither your wife or husband.

In fact, you can't survive even if you are by yourself. Serbs arrive into your village heavily armed from all over the places and with all their modern war equipment of ex -YU Army they totally destroy your village. You can not go anywhere, because there is no way to go. Serbs surrounded entire Bosnia!!!! More importantly concentration camps and genocide was in entire Bosnia!!! The entire Bosnia was a camp!! But let's focus on this one only one city - Srebrenica (again).

There is no food, no water, no electricity, no phone and no place to live. You have a family, small children who are crying, old people dying and you are surrounded from all sides. There is a forest all over the village but in order for you to get out of forest you must go through Serbs first. You will see on the videos people caught from the forest! You will also see Serbs calling them to get back and surrender, and assuring them nobody will kill them.

Once you surrender to your enemy you can consider yourself dead.

 If you are a man you know you will die because they came there to kill you!!! In fact all Bosnians, (NON-Serbs) need to be killed NOT JUST YOU. They have names of each family, and most Serbs already had left the village because they were told what is going to happen, so what are you going to do? You have no guns so you can not defend yourself.

You have no way to brake through Serbian army that surrounded village. You did not invade their country they came to your village. You did not go to Belgrade they came to your land, to your home, to the place you were born, where you grew up, where your family have lived for a very long time.

If you go through the forest your children and wife can't go that far. Maybe wife could of, but children can not. They cry and draw attention to enemy instantly. Your dad if sick can not walk! You have to carry him on your back, but for how long? You can't cook and make a fire, because if you do Serbs will locate your position, find you and kill all of you.

You are already exhausted because there is no food, no drinks no medicine, nothing!!!!

If you are by yourself you could take your own life. Just hang yourself on the nearest tree, you could have done perhaps that, because at least you would die instantly with less pain and suffering. If you don't kill yourself, you will be dead sooner or later anyway. There was no hope for this people over there!! Serbs did not have much compassion or feeling, they would not spare you if you counted on that. They don't know you but that doesn't matter. They believe you threaten their existence in your own homeland they want to occupy for themselves and live there "happily ever after" in a fantasy land called "Greater Serbia". After they kill you, and your entire family they will attempt to hide all traces of Bosnian existence and genocide.

But if you have a family, children and entire village with your friends, relatives, cousins, people you grew up with, you feel responsible and you can't leave them in the time of war!

You only have two choices: 1) to die sooner or 2) to die later. Whatever you chose you will be dead, you just don't know when exactly.  Maybe you hope that some miracle happens. People often believe despite all evidence, they hope that something will happen and change everything. They counted on UN. UN Dutch representatives stationed in Srebrenica promised protection and then failed to keep their promise. Serbs will eventually get all men, children and women, put all people in the buses, later will separate you from your children, family, friends and your wife and you will never see them again.

Did you know that many Bosnians in Srebrenica wanted to die instantly but this privilege was not given to them, and they were left to suffer? Some were shot in the head. Others first tortured, let to suffer with no possibility to die quickly, and then killed, many were slaughtered. How can anyone not understand the mothers of Srebrenica?  They can not have peace until they actually see the remains of dead body. It's hard for them to believe they lost loved ones this way...

This ethnic cleansing and genocide has been ordered by Serbian leaders Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic who are considered "Saints" to Serbs. This is not a joke!

While you are in Srebrenica, they will break your legs, hands, heads, they will maybe shoot you in the head, cut your throat or rape you like in concentration camps held by Serbs - Omarska and Trnoplje, and they could order you to rape your father or maybe your family member. Some people were begging to be killed instead.

This is very sad..... Very sad...These people who have done these crimes still live free, majority.... just a few were persecuted so far? Not 8.000 for sure!

Children were taken from the mother's hands and brutally slaughtered. This can only be done by evil. How could Serbs be manipulated into a hate of this proportion? Did not they go to school? Or was it a communism? But Bosnians were in communism too and Slovenians, and many other countries, so how come they haven't committed genocide?

There is no excuse and no justification, no matter what -- the entire aggression on Republic of Bosnia should never be forgotten. Bosnian Nation survived but... Serbs took 49% of Bosnian territory through genocide and ethnic cleansing.

There is nothing that can make up for lost lives and all pain and suffering. And these two butchers Serb Ratko Mladic and Montenigran Serb Radovan Karadzic deserve to die 8.000 times exactly the same way how each and every Bosnian have died. There was no Court or trial for victims. They could not say - I am not guilty. They could not defend themselves. They did not have a justice so why should now --- they have it?

Bosnian people, I, we, all of us thought genocide can not possibly happen in the heart of Europe but Bosnian war in 1992 proved it wrong. There is nothing bad in liking your country and loving your nation, but if you become nationalistic to the point that your mind is blurred and you can not see good things in anyone who is not like your "people" then you need to examine yourself.

 An estimated 15,000 children died in this three-year-long civil war. (UNICEF)

An estimated 200,000 people were killed during the war which also produced 3 million refugees who were forcibly expelled from their homes by Serbian and Croatian ethnic cleansing. (UNHCR) After the Dayton Peace Accord, fewer than 10 percent of refugees were able to return home. The majority of refugees were displaced throughout the former Yugoslavia and the world. (UNHCR)


The copy of the entire Karadzic's website under the name of Dr Dragan Dabic

This is the copy of the entire Karadzic's website under the name of Dr Dragan Dabic before the site was taken down: In case anyone wonders what was written on the website here is the entire content:


Dr. Dragan Dabic Healing from Within: The Ever Increasing Need for Alternative Viewpoints in the Modern World.

The expression "alternative medicine", as used in the West today, takes into the consideration any healing practice "that does not fall within the realm of conventional medicine". As such they could include chiropractice, herbalism, Yoga, traditional Chinese medicine, different Indian practices, naturopathy, meditation, bioenergy, massage, hypnosis, homeopathy and diet-based therapies, in addition to other alternative practices.

Holistic approach is not a method or a treatment, rather, it is an everyday philosophy of how life should be lived. Holistic health and fitness viewpoints place emphasis on reaching and maintaining good health as requiring more than just taking care of the various singular components that make up the human body. It points out that emotional and spiritual well-being is the key not only for happy, but also healthy life.

The goal is a wellness that encompasses the entire person, rather than just the lack of physical pain or disease. As such this approach is in stark contrast to traditional medicine which focuses on treating symptoms without attempting to examine anything else."

 Now this part below was about:
- his character,
- interests,
- career,
- credentials,
- his life and
- reputation. All made up!

Dr. Dragan "David" Dabic was born some six decades ago in a small Serbian village of Kovaci, near Kraljevo. As a young boy he liked to explore nearby forests and mountains, spending a lot of time on Kopaonik mountain where he tended to pick the omnipresent, natural and potent medicinal herbs that grew at those green pastures.

As a young man ( photo has been deleted ) he moved to Belgrade, and then on to Moscow where he graduated with a Doctor of Medicine degree (spec. in Psychiatry) at the Moscow State University (Lomonosov). After Russia, Dr. Dabic travelled around India and Japan, after which he settled in China where he specialized in alternative medicine, with a special emphasis on the mind-body control, meditation, Yoga, spiritual cleansing, as well as Chinese herbs.

In mid-1990s Dr. Dabic returned back to mother Serbia for good, and ever since then emerged as one of the most prominent experts in the field of alternative medicine, bioenergy, and macrobiotic diet in the whole of the Balkans, and is frequent contributor to the regional alternative health magazines, and guest expert with numerous TV appearances and on many public forums, seminars and symposiums (Belgrade, Novi Sad, Pancevo, Sombor, Smederevo, Kikinda...) dedicated to these issues and topics.

  Note: Dr. Dabic eats locally produced organic, unprocessed natural food. He loves brown rice, legumes, almonds, walnuts, raisins, dried figs and water. He takes brisk two-hour daily walks in the city's parks, or in nature." Dr. Dragan Dabic currently resides on Yuri Gagarin street in New Belgrade, but for public forum invitations, television appearances or private consultations he can be reached directly at the following contact:

Did not you notice the entire site was in English including the email!? Maybe he wanted to have customers beyond Serbia. Here he listed his favorite proverbs.


10 favorite ancient Chinese proverbs as selected personally by Dr. Dabic:

·  Behind every able man, there are always other able men.

·  Teacher opens the door, but you must enter by yourself.

·  A flawed diamond is better than a common stone that is perfect.

·  Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.

·  If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, teach people.

·  If your strength is small, don't carry heavy burdens. If your words are worthless, don't give out any advice.

·  You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair.

·  He who cannot agree with his enemies is controlled by them.

·  He who turns-in his own, shall dig two graves. "

'I am waiting. No one has ever said sorry'

In 1992 Ed Vulliamy revealed the existance of the Bosnian concentration camps. The image of Fikret Alic showed for the first time how Bosnians were brutalized in Serbian concentration camps. In the week of Radovan Karadzic's arrest our  reporter returned to find Alic. In this moving dispatch, he - and other survivors - tell of their anger, despair and continued attempts to try to rebuild their shattered lives.
By: Ed Vulliamy, The Observer/Guardian UK

Most people would not recognize him now - he has a full and manly frame, and a puckish smile; he has even had his teeth fixed. But I would know it anywhere, from the mixture of mischief, a deep inward stare and that mop of hair.

Fikret Alic (bbc)

Bosnia in 1992. Photo by Ron Haviv.

Sixteen summers ago next week, Fikret Alic was probably the most familiar figure in the world. His skeletal, emaciated torso and xylophone ribcage, behind the barbed wire at Trnopolje concentration camp, embodied the violence unleashed on Bosnia's Muslim civilians at the orders of Radovan Karadzic, the man due to be taken to The Hague this weekend to answer charges of genocide and crimes against humanity.

As Karadzic awaits his fate, Fikret Alic is back in Bosnia. Although currently living in Sonderberg, Denmark, he has bought a flat in a block still under construction in Kozarac town centre, and is here to save money to rebuild the nearby family home out of which he was chased in 1992, having completed the foundations. The arrest of the man who organized his torments has left a bittersweet taste.

'I am happy and I am angry,' he says. 'For 13 years, he was living protected as a free man. And for the three years before that, all the world knew what he was doing, from my camp to Srebrenica, but did nothing to stop him. So now the truth will be told, but what has happened to us all this time? Now at last I am happy just because I am alive and here, with my wife and children, and not dead like so many others. But while he was free, I was broken, too.'

I came across Fikret Alic in 1992 at the Trnopolje concentration camp, where I had gone at Karadzic's invitation, while trying to inspect the gulag of concentration camps he had set up across northwestern Bosnia - places of reputed mass murder, torture, mutilation and rape - all of which Karadzic denied, insisting: 'See for yourself.' We took up his suggestion and were directed down a seamless chain of command, first from Karadzic's doorstep to the gates of a place of horror called Omarska, then, after being bundled out before seeing too much, Trnopolje, where Fikret and others languished behind the wire. They had arrived that morning, he said then, from yet another camp, Keraterm, where during a single night 130 men had been massacred in a hangar. Fikret said he had been ordered to help load the bodies on to bulldozers, but, weeping, had his place taken by an older man.

Now Fikret and I meet again, this time to celebrate the arrest of the man who orchestrated the most terrible days of his life. After the embrace, there's a hollow laugh and a pledge that next time we really must get together for another reason. We are talking in Fikret's native town of Kozarac, a place that the Bosnian Serb leader hoped to wipe from the map. As Karadzic languishes in Belgrade, Friday night is getting into gear, the fairground is grinding into action, children are whooping despite the rain; music is throbbing out of bars and cars on to the warm, wet streets and girls on heels like stilts strut into town. The boys' haircuts are stiff with gel and families of three generations are out for a stroll. It could be a libidinous seaside town in Southern Europe.

Kozarac now calls itself 'the biggest small town in the world. Yet 16 summers ago this week, when I came through here on Karadzic's authority, escorted by his guards, it had been burned to the ground and the stench of charred masonry was still heavy in the air. Its inhabitants - apart from a few Serbs tending their animals as though nothing had happened - were either dead, driven out, or taken to one of the gulag of concentration camps. There was no war here in the Prijedor region of Bosnia, just a sudden, vicious and brazen attempt to eradicate an entire population by killing, incarceration, rape and enforced deportation. According to the master plan of which Karadzic is accused, all the people on these streets this Friday night, and in these rebuilt houses, were intended to be dead, gone or never born.

But Kozarac has been rebuilt by the hard work and defiance of a diaspora, some of whom come back for the summer and others who have come back to live - albeit in the Serbian half of Bosnia, the so-called entity Republika Srpska. The mosques are rebuilt, too. As Edin Kararic, a truck driver living in Watford - an Omarska survivor who has opened the Mustang bar on the main street - said to me a few years ago: 'It's not hard to get money for a mosque, but it is extremely hard work to get money to rebuild our houses. I don't go to the mosque, but I like it that they are here, because every minaret is a finger up to the people who tried to put us out. It says: We're back!'

Every year now, there is a commemoration service at Omarska, making this the gathering of a unique tribe in Europe, Clan Omarska. This year's remembrance takes place next week. A local group called Izvor, formed by camp survivor Edin Ramulic, calculates that for all the thousands of bodies already uncovered 3,205 people are still unaccounted for.

As the night unfolds around us, Fikret tells about the hunt in Trnopolje, after our visit, for anyone who talked to the press that day in 1992. He talks about how seven people had been killed for doing so, and how he had had to hide for 10 days after our meeting on 5 August, at which point he joined a convoy of deportees on a terrifying mountain exodus at gunpoint across no-man's land and into Bosnian -held territory. Disguised as a woman he was saved from being taken into a group to be raped because he smelt so badly.

Later in the conflict he had tried to fight in the remarkable 17 Krajiske Brigade, based in Travnik, made up of ethnically cleansed men and women from around Prijedor determined to go home. But he kept coughing up blood and was discharged.

After living in Slovenia and Croatia he had a breakdown. 'I was talking to a tree about my time in the camps. I might as well have been in a straitjacket.' Then came a chance to go to Denmark, a meeting with a Bosnian woman from Sanski Most, near Kozarac, in 1999, 'and when I woke up, I was married,' he laughs. Work loading trucks at a slaughterhouse ended in 2000 after an accident in which a 200kg (32st) carcass fell on his back, but although he does not receive disability pension, the couple have clawed together the money to buy the lease on their flat in Kozarac, and are considering rebuilding the family home, which lies in a small hamlet, surrounded by other incinerated houses, a few returnees and their killers and torturers.

Of his persecutors he now says: 'No one has ever said sorry for what they did. I don't know what it is about these people - I can show you five killers any time we go to Prijedor. Either they are proud of what they did, or pretend it did not happen. I am waiting for someone to admit what they did, or apologize, but they do not, they never will. They have built a monument outside the camp where I was, but it is to Serbs who died, not us. I don't know of any Serbs who died there.'

The long road to Fikret, Trnopolje and Omarska - and to being back in Kozarac last week - began in London at the end of July 1992, when my colleague Maggie O'Kane and the American Roy Gutman published reports from fugitive deportees from Bosnia telling of beatings, torture and murder in the camps, among them Omarska - the place that would emerge as the second most deadly killing field in Bosnia's war, after Srebrenica.

When he invited us to visit the camps, Karadzic greeted us with that professorial, wayward air and faux academic veneer that belied his deranged vision, but left no doubts about his authority over Omarska, promising that we would enter the camp on his word. He sent us down the chain of command to Omarska, first to his Deputy President, Nikola Koljevic, who would be our supervisor, then the crisis staff of the nearest town and administrative centre for Omarska, Prijedor. On the way there we passed the incinerated ruins of Kozarac - 'They are the people who fled because they would not accept the peace,' said our escort, Colonel Milan Milutinovic of the Bosnian Serb army.

After hours of obfuscation and failed attempts by the committee to take us to other camps that had already been inspected by the Red Cross, we set out for Omarska, eventually passing through the back gates of the camp and into another world.

A column of 30 men emerged blinking into the sunlight from the depths of a hangar. They were in various states of decay, some skeletal, with shaven heads. They drilled across a tarmac piste under the watchful eye of a machine-gunner and into a 'canteen', where they gulped down watery bean soup like famished dogs, keeping their bread roll for later. They were told they were allowed to speak freely, but they clearly dared not, the guards swinging their guns; there are few things like the burning eyes of a prisoner who dare not speak what he yearns to say. One man, Dzemal Partusic, said only: 'I do not want to tell any lies, but I cannot tell the truth.' Another, Serif Velic, replied when I asked him about a wound to his head, that he had fallen - it had happened naturally.

When we tried to get to the hangar in which the prisoners were held, we were stopped by the commandant and Prijedor's chief of police, Simo Drjlaca, cocking their guns. Time, and subsequent trials at The Hague, would tell what Karadzic wanted to hide - a nightmare of killing, torture, mutilation, starvation, drunken sadism and rape.

Like Alic, Serif Velic also joined the 17 Krajiske 'ethnically cleansed' brigade after suffering in the camps. This week, he, too, was back in Kozarac, living next to a stone marking a mass grave of 456 bodies in the nearby village of Kevljani, and pointing out another likely mass grave in the field behind his house, where the vegetation becomes suddenly uncomfortably lush.

'I was happier about the rain on my lawn than about the arrest of Karadzic,' he says. 'It's too little, too late. I have taught myself not to hate, because if I hate, that is yet another burden on my back. I want justice, but not revenge - I just want my soul to be in peace. But I cannot forgive. How can I forgive someone who shows no remorse, like Karadzic and all the little Karadzics around here who did these things to us? How can I forgive things that were done by people who are proud of doing it, would do it again and do not ask my forgiveness?'

By the end of the war, Radovan Karadzic had for three years had his hand clasped by the leaders of the Western world, as a fellow politician and diplomat. Then, suddenly, after his indictment by the newly established Hague tribunal, he became a wanted war criminal. But while our journey to the camps had taken us down the chain of command from Karadzic to Omarska over four days, The Hague's long road to Karadzic worked the other way round over 13 years, beginning with the minnows.

In 1996, while 60,000 foreign troops patrolled Bosnia, the fugitive Karadzic moved openly between his home in Pale and the Prijedor area. The first man to be arrested and delivered to the tribunal was Dusko Tadic, a parish-pump sadist from Kozarac, who had kept a café called Tibet.

Tadic had toured the camps to kill and rape at leisure, and became The Hague's first conviction, in May 1997. I had not known him, and testified as an expert witness. But I was curious about the people I had met; much was known about Karadzic by now, but not his middle management, the people we had met that day along the chain of command, on our way into Omarska. I found Deputy President Koljevic in Banja Luka; he had been a mid-ranking Shakespeare scholar before going into politics with Karadzic, but was now mumbling into his cigar about 'digging up the bones, we were digging up the bones' - though it was not clear which bones.

So, finally, in court at The Hague, the story of Karadzic's camps began to be told. Now Mark Harmon and Alan Tieger, two remarkable Americans, the latter having prosecuted Dusko Tadic at the outset, are due to bring the case against Karadzic.

The survivors' campaign for a memorial at Omarska - which is now owned by steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal, and produces 1.5 million tonnes of iron ore a year - is four years old, led by Satko Mujagic, a survivor living in Leiden, the Netherlands. Satko's foundation, Optimisti 2004, has been building sports and communal facilities in Kozarac, and he is back this week to inaugurate a gym with 49,000 euros given by wellwishers and what Satko believes to be the first and only donation ever made by the Serbian authorities to a returnee project, of 15,000 euros.

'It is one thing, and a good thing, to arrest the man, Karadzic,' he says. 'He was the big war criminal, the man with the idea for all that happened. But it is another thing to arrest the idea. Karadzic's ideas live on in the existence of Republika Srpska, and if this is all about joining the European Union, for the Republika Srpska to join the EU would be like Europe admitting a part of Germany that still agreed with Hitler, just because it is in Europe. I have rebuilt the house you are staying in now, but in 1992 it was burned while my grandmother was inside - she is one of the 3,205 people still missing - and I was taken to Omarska. No one has ever said sorry for what they did, no one has ever helped us to return and the authorities oppose outright any monument in Omarska to what they did.'

I remember Satko playing ball with his little girl against the wall of the cells where he was kept in Omarska during a visit when she was two years old. Now she is six, and Satko says: 'When I told Lejla that Karadzic had been arrested, she said that if he killed more than one man, he should go to prison for life, but in prison should not be starved like her father - no one should do that.'

Dzemal Partusic - the man who had not wanted to tell any lies, but could not tell the truth in the Omarska canteen in 1992 - has also rebuilt his home here, on a hillside in Kozarac. In the week of Karadzic's arrest, he is free and happy to talk as he feels.

'It is important that Karadzic has been arrested,' he says, above a beautiful view stretching towards Omarska. 'I see him as a second Hitler, the person who thought he could do whatever he wanted to us, and did. He was a man the world negotiated with, but I saw him as a man you cannot negotiate with. So that is good. But what are we left with?

'We can build our houses, we can show them we are back, that this is our country, but we can never get back our lives as they were before. Karadzic being arrested will not give us back our dead.'

Eventually Fikret Alic and I take a drive out of flourishing Kozarac to the hamlet where he grew up and from which he fled into the mountains, only to be captured - while most of his friends were killed. 'We found parts of their remains later,' he says. We stop at a mosque, where a plaque names the hundreds of dead from just that tiny neighbourhood. 'That is my brother,' he says, 'and that my grandfather.' We drive on, past the rebuilt houses, to the cement foundations of what Fikret hopes will one day be his home again, and where he and his mother, sisters, wife and their children were yesterday due to cook a lamb barbecue. I praise the whole, defiant miracle of Kozarac. 'Oh,' counsels Fikret in reply, 'it is not a problem to build a house. It is more of a problem to awake a dead man.

  The emaciated Bosnian man whose image was at the centre of a libel dispute between ITN and Living Marxism has praised the TV crew for their coverage.
  Bosnian Fikret Alic paid tribute to ITN reporter Penny Marshall. He also expressed his gratitude to the TV crew who had filmed the Serb-run Trnopolje camp where he and hundreds of others were held captive in August 1992. "Until Penny arrived, no one knew around the world what had happened and that we were all prisoners," he told ITN through an interpreter. Ms Marshall and her colleague Ian Williams were each awarded £150,000 by the High Court on Tuesday, following a successful libel action against Living Marxism. The magazine ran a story questioning the veracity of the coverage.

But Mr Alic added that after the camera crew left, conditions at the camp deteriorated further. "Our lives changed a lot," he said. "I would like to say that behind the cameramen there were Serb soldiers and they shouted to write everybody's names who said something in front of the camera.

He went on: "At the time they didn't know why they were saying that but the camera crew left and they started killings." He added: "Justice is in The Hague. I wouldn't like something like that to happen anywhere in the world.
