The Balkans: Fighting Genocide Deniers

Srebrenica Genocide Blog has two new posts up: on the atrocities of 1943, and on Darko Trifunovic, a “Srebrenica genocide denier” employed by the University of Belgrade's Faculty of Security Studies. In a comment, Alan Jakšić of Serbian Anarchist recommends that Daniel of Srebrenica Genocide Blog file a “formal complaint” with the University of Belgrade: “Afterall, university people are supposed to take such feedback seriously. And given the political VARIETY in the country, you might just be successful. So try taking it direct to them if you haven't already. And should they not take it seriously, well, you can always blog about it.”

    I am surprised that this kind of comments appear on your web. This blogger is full of hate and call for violence against dr Darko Trifunovci. This blogger is made by Islamic Fundamentalist from Bosnia mostly members of SDA, which former leader was sentenced twice for spreading hate and intolerance among nations of former Yugoslavia. In all democracy ultimate right is right of freedom of speech. You can check web site Bosnjaci.net or Srebrenica blogger and you can find out that there is no option of sending comments or discussing the subject that they posted. Why?

  • Al Qaeda Media Committee Attacks on Darko Trifunovic

    I am posting this on behalf of Darko Trifunovic:

    SOME COUNTER TERRORISM EXPERTS FEAR AL QAEDA ATTACKS THEM WITH THE INFLUENCE OF AL QAEDA MEDIA COMMITTEE – THE CASE OF DR DARKO TRIFUNOVIC

    World wide counter terrorist experts have indicated that they believe in the danger of web attacks on them. Now Al Qaeda and Radical Islamists are targetting not only our objects and soldiers, but also our intellectuals.

    Al-Qaeda Media Committee Details, Center of Gravity: Pakistan Area of Operation, Afghanistan, United Kingdom, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo

    In the early 1990s, this committee produced a publication called “Nashrat al Akhbar” — the Newscast, in the Hyatabad neighborhood of Peshawar, Pakistan. Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the former Bosnian and Afghanistan war veteran with a Bosnian passport, took over leadership of this committee during the planning of the Sept. 11 attacks, starting around 1999.

    It become clear that al-Qaeda’s committee now target our intellectuals, experts, professors etc…recently there has been an ongoing Internet War against Dr Darko Trifunovic, from the Faculty of Security Studies, University of Belgrade, who discovered existence of “White Al Qaeda” in Bosnia and Herzegovina

    (Sources: 1Jamal al-Fadl testimony, United States vs. Osama bin Laden et al, trial transcript, Day 2, Feb. 6, 2001. 2: The 9-11 Commission Report. July 22, 2004. Chapter 5.1.)

    The Media Committee coordinates with the owners of pro-fundamentalist media and activists inside major media outlets to spread Islamic fundamentalist propaganda. The basic function of this Committee is to justify the activities of Islamic fundamentalists. The main weapon is to claim that Muslims are always and everywhere the exclusive victims of violence. Of course, the truth is completely different, because the Islamic fundamentalists initiate violence for the purpose of establishing the pan-Islamic Ummah, a theocracy that excludes the existence of other religions. For example, in Kosovo-Metohia Islamic extremists among the Kosovo Albanians, with Al-Qaeda’s help, have managed to create a perception that the Albanian majority was endangered by the Serb minority. Thanks to the work of the Media Committee, the secession and terrorism of Islamic fundamentalists among the Kosovo Albanians were presented as a “struggle for freedom.” One of the main objectives of the Islamic fundamentalists’ global network is to create a perception in the world public opinion that Muslims are always the victims, in order to justify conflict and conquest. Victim status is thus claimed for Kosovo Albanians, their co-religionists in Kashmir, Palestine, Russia (Chechnya), Sudan, Tanzania, Bosnia, Macedonia, Malaysia, East Timor, etc.

    What the Media Committee of Al Qaeda from Bosnia wants to hide:

    Links between 9/11 and the Al-Qaeda network in Bosnia-Herzegovina

    Officials of the Muslim-Croat Federation in B-H never released any information to the US investigators or lawyers representing the families of 9/11 victims, because such information would cast a new light on the entire B-H conflict. They would have made it obvious that the war was a jihad, a religious war waged against Bosnia’s Christians by the Islamic extremists.

    The Interpol office in Wiesbaden, Germany sent a request to the Bosnian authorities on 18 September 2001 to verify the identity of a certain Mr. Atta, who according to their information used to reside in the hamlet of Bakotić, 8 km outside Maglaj, in 1999. Attached to the request was the photo of Mohamed Atta, and a note to verify it through a certain Mehmed Hasanić, a resident of Bakotić. This means Mohamed Atta was trained in B-H; it is known that he left B-H for Hamburg, from where he proceeded to the United States and his ultimate mission – to destroy the Twin Towers.

  • Dear,

    First of all wish you all the best in New 2008.

    Here is the problem. I am working for the defense of accused individuals before ICTY (International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia. Someone misusing my name on the above mentioned blogger as well as on the following:

    2.http://srebrenica-genocide.blogspot.com/

    As part of defense it is my duty to defend accused individuals, so person of group posting information’s that I am Srebrenica denier doing directly act against the International Law and obstruction of defense, which is consider as act Human Rights abuse those accuse before ICTY. You can’t call lawyer of suspect killer, killing denier. It is wrong and inappropriate and against the Law.

    So, I asking kindly to remove above mentioned blogger.

    Here is the letter of the Legal Counselor before ICTY:

    To: dr Darko Trifunovic – member of Defense team

    Also, I discovered that behind posting on above mentioned blogger are extreme Islamic Fundamentalist. You can see more at: Al Qaeda Media Committee Attacks on Darko Trifunovic http://www.terrorfinance.org/the_terror_finance_blog/2007/12/al-qaeda-media.html

    I report all case to the FBI

    LETTER TO FBI

    Dear colleagues,

    I would like to report an web portal of Islamic Fundamentalist under the name of Bosnjaci.net

    Particularly dangerous person is the hacker and web master of this web portal Mr.Afan Pasalic (afan@afan.net). He is posting against the Law, International Law and Role of Procedures of ICTY (International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia) obstructing the Justice, preventing the defense at following web bloggers:

    1.http://srebrenica-genocide.blogspot.com/2007/12/darko-trifunovic-srebrenica-genocide.html
    2.http://srebrenica-genocide.blogspot.com/

    Recently I was subject and I am still subject of attack of the media committee of Al Qaeda. You can see more at: http://www.terrorfinance.org article under the title;”Al Qaeda Media Committee Attacks on Darko Trifunovic”.

    Also, I discover that reason why I am attacked by this group is as follow:

    Bosnjaci.net Jihadnet web site. Here is reason why they are attacking me. Just see their web site. One of their favorite and honored member is SAKIB MAHMULJIN http://www.bosnjaci.net/dobri_bosnjani.php?id=130 Sakib is one of the Bosnian White Al Qaeda members very high ranking and accuse for the War Crimes. See this: War crimes: “Vozuca case”, six years later http://www.ex-yupress.com/slobos/slobos11.html

    Also, NANIC, IZET former commander of the 505th Buzim Brigade with the Fifth Corps of the Bosnian Army where of integral part was unit “Hamze”. According to the Bosnian State Court http://bosnianews.blogspot.com/2007/09/witness-claims-that-former-assistant.html:
    “The indictment alleges that “Hamze” members arrested, on 5 August 1995, four Serbian aggressor’s soldiers, and killed them on the same day. The Prosecution holds Alic responsible for failing to “investigate and punish” the perpetrators of the killings, as was his duty.”
    About War Crimes committed by special unit ‘Hamze’ within the 5th Corpus of Bosnia and Herzegovina Army, a mujahedine from Saudi Arabia Taufik al Harbi who cut throat to one Serbian prisoner in the middle of September 1995 in the bordering area with Croatia.
    http://www.euronews.net/create_html.php?page=detail_info&article=374232&lng=1

    Also one of the honorable graced individuals on Bosnjaci.net are HALILOVIC, NEZIM – MUDERIS http://www.bosnjaci.net/dobri_bosnjani.php?id=61
    In the Wal-Mart-sized, architecturally overbearing King Fahd mosque–which opened in 2000 on the outskirts of Sarajevo, built with Saudi money and named for the Saudi monarch–the imam is Nezim Halilovic Muderis, a Bosnian extremist agitator whose antics here I have followed since 1999. Muderis’s Friday sermons, available on Bosnian websites, are replete with incitement to violence in Israel, Kashmir, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and the Philippines. He preaches the same line on the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq as is heard among the acolytes of terrorist leader Abu Musab al Zarqawi. It is, to say the least, bizarre: “In Falluja, according to statements from the U.S. command, spirits have appeared in the form of enormous spiders, weighing about a kilogram, that only attack U.S. soldiers, and the person who is bitten dies within seconds.”
    About this prominetn members of Wahaby you can find here: http://www.islamicpluralism.org/articles/2005a/wahhabisbalkans.htm

    BOSNIAN MUSLIM WAR CRIMINALS PROTECTED, GTITED AND PROMOTED BY Bosnjaci.net web portal of Jihadis from Bosnia RASIM DELIC http://www.bosnjaci.net/dobri_bosnjani.php?id=79
    According to the indictment, Rasim Delic was aware that the Moudjahidines members of the Bosnian army had a distinct tendency to commit crimes especially against captured enemy combatants and civilians and that the Kamenica camp was being used as a place in which these crimes could be perpetrated. Reportedly, however, he took no measures whatsoever to stop these acts taking place. http://www.trial-ch.org/en/trial-watch/profile/db/facts/rasim_delic_273.html

    I am afraid that Bosnjaci.net and many others in the US can present danger for not only National security of US, but broader, danger for the International Security.

    Sincerely Yours,

    Dr Darko Trifunovic

  • Hahahaha… Darko Trifunovic is at it again. He uses old tricks by accusing everyone who criticizes him to be “Islamic Terrorism.” Keep blowing the wind. No wonder defence lawyers of indicted war criminals praise you as an expert, hahahaha…

  • Euro Police Convention Duped by Balkan Terror Threat
    Sunday, January 13, 2008 11:22 AM

    The 11th European Police Congress, to be held in Berlin on 29-30th January is the target of a Balkan Al Qaeda franchise.

    The convention will be inaugurated by Franco Frattini, Vice President of the European Commission, Commissioner for Justice, Freedom and Security. The second item on the agenda is “Global, European and National threats by Terrorists: National Concepts to face the Challenge.”

    In a programme note (bottom Programme section) it is advised that one of the speakers, Dr Darko Trifunovic – a maverick young investigator from the University of Belgrade, Faculty of Security Studies – will not be able to attend due to “pressure and death threats” made against him by radical groups that are under his investigation. He has decided not to “expose himself and the congress to further danger.”

    Dr Darko Trifunovic has been conducting research into the origins, ambitions and operating methods of what he calls “white Al Qaeda”, the home grown branch of the terrorist franchise organization in the various areas of the Balkans.

    It first took foothold in Bosnia-Herzegovina after the Western powers in the 90’s saw the influx of Afghan war veterans into the territory as an easy way to support the Bosnian Muslims. Since the Dayton Peace Accord Iranians as well as Saudi Wahhabis have flooded the statelet with funds, over-sized mosques and subversive organizations, one of which has members throughout the Bosniak diaspora in Europe, Canada and the US. CNAB appears to be the center of gravity of the present threats against Trifunovic.

    Trifunovic has also found new links between Bosnia and the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and the London and Madrid train bombings. Specifically mentioned are Mohammed Atta, who coordinated the 9/11 outrage, and Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, Bosnian citizenship holder and war veteran, former Al Qaeda ‘Operations Chief’, who – according to Dr Darko Trifunovic – took over the leadership of the Al Qaeda media campaign (‘the Committee’) during the planning of the 9/11. Atta’s place of residence was a Bosnian hamlet before launching off to Hamburg and the US for his fatal mission.

    With the knowledge of the UN interim governors in Kosovo, Albanian-American radicals were actively recruiting terrorists for ‘the war against America’ prior to the 9/11 attack, of which they had foreknowledge. The UN however, did nothing.

    The Foreign Area Officer Association FAOA posits that the Sarajevo based organization, AIO’s (Aktivna Islamska Omladina)[1] “(…) Islamic weekly magazine SAFF [2] and organization’s website have been fronts of radical Islamic preaching, gaining notoriety for publishing interviews with terrorists who have fought against US forces in Iraq and expressing solidarity with the jihadists and suicide bombers in Israel.” FAOA also links the AIO with members throughout the Bosniak diaspora in Europe and the US, one of which is CNAB..

    CNAB claims to represent some 350.000 Bosniak refugees in the US and Canada. Trifunovic qualifies them as a new jihadi organization. He specifies four members in particular, who are one way or another involved in Islamist activities. In Terror Finance Blog in “Bosnjaci.net Attacks on Darko Trifunovic” Trifunovic specifies as follows:

    “Here is why Bosnjaci.net, an Islamist web site from Bosnia is attacking me.

    One of Bosnjaci.net’s favorite and honored members is Sakib Mahmuljin, who is a high-ranking Bosnian White Al Qaeda member, accused of war crimes. See this: “War crimes: “Vozuca case”, six years later”.

    Izet Nanic is a former commander of the 505th Buzim Brigade with the Fifth Corps of the Bosnian Army which was an integral part was the “Hamze” unit. See here and here.

    Another prominent individual on Bosnjaci.net is Nezim Halilovic-Muderis. He is imam at the Wal-Mart-sized, Wahhabi King Fahd mosque, which opened in 2000 on the outskirts of Sarajevo, built with Saudi money and named after the Saudi monarch. Nezim Halilovic-Muderis, a Bosnian extremist agitator whose antics I have been following since 1999. Muderis’s Friday sermons, available on Bosnian websites, are replete with incitement to violence in Israel, Kashmir, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and the Philippines. He preaches the same line on the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq, as is heard among the acolytes of the late terrorist leader of ‘Al Qaeda in Iraq’, Abu Musab al Zarqawi.

    It is, to say the least, bizarre: “In Falluja, according to statements from the U.S. command, spirits have appeared in the form of enormous spiders, weighing about a kilogram, that only attack U.S. soldiers, and the person who is bitten dies within seconds.” More information about this prominent Wahhabist is here.

    Another Bosnian Muslim war criminal, protected and promoted by Bosnjaci.net is Rasim Delic. According to the indictment, Rasim Delic was aware that the jihadi members of the Bosnian army had a distinct tendency to commit crimes, especially against captured enemy combatants and civilians (…) Reportedly, however, he took no measures whatsoever to stop these acts taking place.

    In an email Trifunovic has it that the web master of Bosnjaci.net, Afan Pasalic even openly confessed that he uses Trifunovic’ name to manipulate and and false emails and post comments in his name. Trifunovic qualifies the impersonation quite accurately as “shocking!!!!”

    A brief insight into some of the more flowery death threats against Trifunovic, posted at Bosnjaci.net:

    “Help us God to erase Trifunovic and entire his family from Earth – We must teach our kids from age of 5 how to use pistols and guns, and that they hold in one hand (knjiga) Ku’ran and in another hand a gun ready for use – If Darko Trifunovci goes to the 11th Police Congress in Berlin, God help that all Muslims finish him – Such individuals as Darko Trifunovic, we need to harass him, and we need to continue to discredit him by all means and to very end, until others dare not show up to talk about terrorism”

    The manicheic character of the site is illustrated by the shocking death threats in one section, while another is reserved for “Dobri Bosnjaci” (good Bosniaks). The latter consists of a list of special members of the portal: dangerous Islamic fundamentalists and war criminals. Trifunovic: “We are dealing with pure criminals (…) I am planning to inform all EU, US and other relevant authorities regarding this unfortunate incident in order to prevent such thing from happening again in the future.” I don’t share his optimism.

    Earlier this week a colleague of Trifunovic, analyst Ioannis Michaletos, released this media message on his behalf.

    Up to now Dr Trifunovic has been able to conduct his investigations from the ivory tower of the University of Belgrade in relative tranquility. When it transpired however he was invited to speak during the upcoming 11th Police Congress and – as a consequence, the results of his research would reach the professional domain – no methods have been shunned to intimidate him, discredit him as a person and as a scholar.

    With false accusations of ‘Srebrenica denial’ and ‘hate mongering’ – references to laws prohibiting Holocaust denial and inciting racial hatred – attempts have been made to get him banned from the police convention; impersonations and cyber manipulation being but the least methods of choice to muzzle. But it is my understanding that, far from denying the deplorable events at Srebrenica, Trifunovic has been further investigating the matter.

    Apart from the personal injury done here, the public damage of this terrorist saga is two-fold: researchers are being harassed to prevent them from doing their jobs, thus interfering with the right of enquiry. The consequences of such actions on the academic level could well be considerable. The second part is even worse: the intimidation of officials conducting criminal enquiries, subverting the rule of law, leading ultimately to mob rule.

    Let me wrap this up with some thoughts of my own. In the past few decades one of the greater mysteries has been the question, how the Holocaust on six million Jews at the hands of the Nazis could have taken place without the entire continent raising up in protest. At present, a sizable majority of people in the West surprisingly seem to be sharing views with the people who have declared against us. However treacherous and hard to fathom this may be, it is kinder on the persons harbouring such views: it is after all easier to be a voluntary accomplice – silent or otherwise – than it is to be a coward.

    The paradox at the heart of Genocide Denial, an unacceptable paradox if we are to think of it as scholarship, is that it sets out to refute what it wished had happened. Search the literature and you will not discover a Genocide denier who is troubled by the idea of extermination itself, who finds Srebrenica massacre inconceivable morally rather than mathematically, who is not at least half in love with Milosevic, and who does not believe that however much we scale down the numbers the cause of whatever took place was the inherent odiousness of Muslims. Common to them is the conviction that the Srebrenica lie is a fabrication by the Muslims themselves to extort guilt and reparation, to justify the crimes of Islamism, and to further their ambition of Balkans domination. The Genocide denier, in other words, repeats the identical slander which fuelled the crime he maintains never happened. The Genocide denier does not reframe the Genocide in Bosnia to spare the Muslims but to give himself the satisfaction of killing us all over again in his imagination.

    I am normally not a fan of restricting someone’s freedom of speech, but tolerating denials of other people’s tragedy backed up by a mountain of evidence has a very harmful effect of the people who went through that tragedy. People denying large portions of our history in the name of “free speech” or “not being politically correct” is something personally harmful to every Bosnian. It would be as poisonous and ugly as going to an African American and saying, “you know, slavery wasn’t really a bad institution for blacks” or telling a Native American , “sure you were slaughtered but YOU attacked us”. In fact, it is a form of being utterly impolite. It makes us paranoid and irrational at times, and is pretty much a sin. Criticize Bosnia for whatever event you want, say whatever you want to about Muslim history, but to deny the obvious, that 83.33% of civilian deaths in the Bosnian war were Muslims and over eight thousand of us were massacred in Srebrenica (Europe) because we choose Islam over Christianity- is a sin. All 97,207 Bosnian war-dead, as well as all those other Bosnians who died as a result of the war, were victims of the aggression waged by the regime of Slobodan Milosevic in Serbia, supported by the regime of Franjo Tudjman in Croatia and aided and abetted by the Western alliance and the UN. Muslims were not the only victims in Bosnia, any person or group who resisted the Serbian Cetniks or Croatian Ustashas were liable to torture, execution or extermination. And I for one, am surprised that the 11th European Police Congress would specifically invite someone like Darko Trifunovic to get up on the pulpit and sin in public. I would tell you that such a person belongs in a Hell, but honestly, I wouldn’t want to insult the Devil.

    Go SDA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Owen

    What you see above is evidence of the way Darko Trifunovic and his allies have propagated his version of events around the blogosphere, under the banner of the defence of free speech (accompanied by more or less blatant subtones of Islamophobia).

    I have tried posting comments challenging Trifunovic’s claims at a number of the blogs that have reproduced his account.

    I argued that this was not a free speech issue as it was portrayed by Trifunovic (or by the European Police Congress’s dubious endorsement, as now removed from EPC’s website but published at Serbian Unity Congress as a comment in the name of General Reimar Scherz, chairman of the EPC).

    In particular I noted Trifunovic’s responsibility for the 2002 Republika Srpska report on the Srebrenica massacre that claimed that less than 100 “Muslims” had been summarily executed by Bosnian Serb forces, not the 7,000-8,000 accepted by the UN and international law. The way Paddy Ashdown, High Representative in Bosnia, threw out the report, suggests that his claims to expertise are not to be taken too seriously.

    Honourably some of the blogs who reproduced Trifunovic’s claims have published my comments. Others like 1389 Blog simply deleted them. Politeia, the source of a “Blog Burst” calling on bloggers to republish the Trifunovic missive, sent me a message that was a little difficult to understand but seemed to equate publishing an alternative version of the claimed facts with “activism”.

    “Free speech” seems to mean very different things to different bloggers. And so does the significance of genocide denial.

  • K. Cafajate

    It’s interesting Owen that you are so focused on what Serbs did to the Bosnian Muslims in Srebrenica, but not what Nasir Oric and his disgusting murderers did to Serbs. Are not the Serbs human being who deserved better? Although it is acknowledged widely that the Serbs killed those men and boys who, the Muslim forces under Nasir Oric spared nobody, not the elderly, not women, not children. In fact, he was more than happy to share his pride in those murders with others. Thanks to the internet, Serbs now have the freedom to express their views. Prior, the Bosnian Muslims, Croats, and Kosovo Albanians were the only people being heard, spreading all sorts of nonsense. For instance, are the death tolls in Bosnia and Kosovo as high as they wanted us to believe? No. These are facts that are verifiable through Western sources. What about the Serbs forced from their homes in the middle of the night from Krajina? About a quarter of a million Serbs were forced from their homes and few have been able to return. How did the West react? They celebrated. Serbs deserve their chance to tell the world. If you are a racist against Serbs, there’s not much I can do about it, but for the part of the Serbs, they deserve to tell their side. I just don’t get it that supposedly intelligent people refuse to hear all sides of a story and uncritically believed anything the Muslims of Bosnia and Kosovo said. That is a sign of ignorance my friend.

  • Owen

    K. Cafajate, the subject of my comment was the deceitfulness of Darko Trifunovic and the unscrupulousness and hypocrisy of a number of his internet associates.

    Trifunovic was the analyst entrusted with the preparation of the Republika Srpska report to Paddy Asdhdown’s Commission on Srebrenica. The report based on his analysis was rejected as rubbish. The Republika Srpska government eventually produced a report whose conclusions were massively at variance with Trifunovic.

    Trifunovic was sacked by the Bosnian Government after his nationality papers were found to have been falsified. He is reported as having expressed the wish that Mladic had killed all the Bosniaks at Srebrenica. He has manipulated his Wikipedia entry. He has orchestrated a campaign of self-serving misinformation around the blogosphere.

    That’s the subject at issue here.
