The first time West supported radical Islamists against secular Muslims was during the war in Bosnia

Posted on August 14, 2013 by


It was in Bosnia, where the US and NATO allies deliberately trained, financed, and politically supported a faction of Muslim fundamentalists whose goal was to create — through violence — a fascist-clerical state.

This is what caused the Bosnian civil war.Put bluntly, what happened is that NATO supported a campaign of ethnic cleansing and genocide against innocent Bosnian Serb civilians, and then NATO blamed the victims, as if they had been the ones carrying out a genocide.As for late Izetbegovic radical islamofascism, one can learn by reading his book: ‘Islamic Declaration,’ where he explains very clearly that Muslims may not organize under any secular system and that the only proper behavior towards ‘infidels’ is violence.

Still, the Western media called him ,,a moderate Muslim” (New York Time, or ex, in several issues: April 1992, May 1992).
It’s hard too believe the  NYT yournos haven’t been familiar with his Islamist manifesto, or perhaps  they were ordered to turn the blind eye.

The Islamic Declaration was reissued by Izetbegovic during the important 1990 elections; thus to make perfectly clear where he stood:

Here are several quotes from Izetbegovic’s Islamist declaration:

“We must, therefore be first preachers and then soldiers. Our weapons are: personal example, the book, the word. When is force to be added to these?The choice of this moment is always a specific one and depends on a series of factors.

There is however a general rule: the Islamic movement should and must start to take over the power as soon as it is morally and numerically strong enough not only to overthrow the existing non-Islamic, but also to build up a new Islamic authority.”  page 43.

“In one of the thesis for an Islamic order of today we have stated that it is a natural function of the Islamic order to gather all Muslims and Muslim communities throughout the world into one. Under the present conditions, this desire means a struggle for creating a great Islamic federation from Morocco to Indonesia, from tropical Africa to Central Asia.”  page 46

“The first and foremost of such conclusions is surely the one on the incompatibility of Islam and non-Islamic systems. There can be neither peace nor coexistence between the Islamic faith and non-Islamic societies and political institutions. […] By claiming the right to order its own world by itself, Islam clearly excludes the right and possibility of activity of any strange ideology on its own turf. Therefore, there is no question of any laicistic principles, and the state should be an expression of  and should support the moral concepts of the religion.” page 22

“There is no secular principle, and the State must be for Muslims the scrupulous expression of the moral and conceptual pillar of the religion”, page 3

It turns out that Izetbegovic did not win the 1990 elections in Bosnia. So he proceeded to seize it illegally from Fikret Abdic, the non-fundamentalist and pro-Yugoslav Muslim who was (1) allied with the Serbs; (2) more popular than Izetbegovic; and (3) who had defeated Izetbegovic at the polls.What does this reveal? Well, if the most popular Bosnian Muslim leader, Fikret Abdic, was allied with the Serbs, then most Bosnian Muslims were not interested in fighting the Serbs — on the contrary: they wanted to preserve a united Yugoslavia. But this in turn implies that the Serbs were not trying to exterminate the Bosnian Muslims, as the Western media repeatedly claimed, because if they had been, why would most Muslims be allying with them? Finally, it is obvious from this that the multiculturalist and moderate Bosnian Muslim leader was Fikret Abdic, not Alija Izetbegovic, as the media claimed.

There was never any question about this, in fact. The reason Izetbegovic was famous for having published Islamist writings in the 1970s is that such activities got Mr. Izetbegovic tried and imprisoned in Yugoslavia, for a few years, on the charge of inciting dangerous and fanatical ideas.

And the key point is this: Izetbegovic re-issued “Islamic Declaration” in 1990 — the same year that he ran for the presidency of Bosnia and lost the election to Fikret Abdic. This was an election that coincided with a political crisis about the future of Bosnia, so Izetbegovic was obviously using his violent book to define himself as the leader of a movement that meant to turn Bosnia into a Muslim fundamentalist and racist theocracy.

All this resulted to the proclamation of the Autonomous province (and later) Republic of Western Bosnia, with real moderate Muslim, Businessman Fikret Abdic – Babo , as a key figure.  

After so long span of time it’s very difficult to find someone who still remembers  Fikret ‘Babo’ Abdic, political leader of Autonomous Province of Western Bosnia (1993-1995) and Republic of Western Bosnia (1995);


Map: Autonomous province and later Republic of Western Bosnia

Autonomous Province of Western Bosnia was proclaimed in 1993 by local Muslims in Velika Kladusa and Western Bosnia and Herzegovina, who opposed the Sarajevo government.

The autonomous province cooperated with Republika Srpska, Republika Srpska Krajina and Serbia during the war in Bosnia.  The territory of Western Bosnia was occupied by the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1994.  and all the inhabitants  fled to Republika Srpska Krajina ( after the worst ethnic cleansing in history  in August 1995. – so called Operation Storm – Republika Srpska Krajina has been occupied by Croatia).

However, later in 1994. with help of Serbs, Sarajevo  troops were expelled from the Western Bosnia, which was then restored.

This is a short story of Fikret Abdic – Babo. Note that he was a communist same way as all the other leaders at that time in Yugoslavia. Abdic was a businessman. This is written in description of the video:

Abdic was a great embarrassment to the U.S. government.

He was and is popular, arguably the most popular Muslim communist leader; he got the most votes in the 1990 Bosnian elections. And that was the problem because he was allied with the Bosnian Serbs. He supported the concept of Yugoslavia – a multiethnic state. He fought Alija Izetbegovic, the extreme Islamist, installed and maintained in Sarajevo through U.S. power .
In 2002 he was sentenced to 20 years in prison by Croats for ‘war crimes’ like other opponents to NATO, West, and Saudis.

Same year Croatia and  Bosnian Muslim army defeated the Republic of Western Bosnia,  occupied and annexed her territory (now the Una-Sana Canton in the Muslim – Croatian Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina).  The Croats arrested Abdic, and he was subject to a  kangaroo political trial in Croatia; he was was sentenced to 20 years in prison for alleged war crime (!!!)  (but the sentence was later reduced to 15 years).


Fikret ‘Babo’ Abdic

The following article  appeared in Associated Press on Tuesday, August 22, 1995:

Bosnian Muslims Stand Divided

VOJNIC, Republic of Srpska Krajina ( today Croatia)  (AP) — Amid the confusion of Serbs fleeing Croats and Croats and Muslims fleeing Serbs, Safet Kantarevic is part of a little-told story in the Balkan wars: Muslims running in fear from Muslims.

The 26-year-old Kantarevic, along with his wife, child, parents and four brothers, left their home in Velika Kladusa two weeks ago as troops of the Muslim-led Bosnian army retook the northwestern Bosnian city.

They joined more than 20,000 Muslims, the followers of warlord Fikret Abdic, whose rebellion against the Sarajevo government came to abrupt end earlier this month.

They had wanted to go northward, to Zagreb, and then on to Western Europe. But Croatia has closed the road — claiming it’s already overburdened with 190,000 Bosnian refugees — and has signed an agreement with the Bosnian government on their repatriation.

“I would rather die then go back to government-controlled Bosnia,” Kantarevic said while helping his brothers put up a hut in a muddy field outside Vojnic, 30 miles south of Zagreb. “Of course I’m afraid to go back. We’ve been fighting the (government’s) 5th Corps, and if I get back, they’ll kill me.”

A shared language and the vague ties of being called Muslim by the rest of the world seem the only common links between Abdic’s followers and the government.

“I’m a Muslim and I’m not ashamed of it. But I don’t want to fight Serbs. I don’t want to go to war. I don’t want my children to learn the Koran and Arabic,” Kantarevic said, criticizing the Bosnian government for trying to strengthen Muslim identity.

When the Bosnian war erupted in April 1992, Abdic made deals with all sides — Serbs and Croats, Muslims and the United Nations — to keep the northwest region known as the “Bihac pocket” free of conflict and relatively well-supplied. The traditionally good relations between Muslims and Serbs in the predominantly Muslim area served his cause.

His near-messianic hold on his followers relies partly on his brand of trickle-down economics, with many locals owing any wealth and status directly to the charismatic boss and leader.

To Kantarevic and his brethren, Abdic is simply “Babo,” or father, a paternal protector from the worst ravages of war, a provider of jobs and relative prosperity in peacetime.

“I trust Babo, he’s my government,” Kantarevic said.

To the governments in Sarajevo and Zagreb, Abdic is a traitor, a maverick commander and politician, a corrupt one-time factory manager who always ran the Bihac pocket like a fiefdom.

And all what happens in the middle East is just continuation of the same policy.  But if you have been told the truth about the war in Bosnia, they won’t be able to apply the same method of destruction elsewhere. As soon as the World opens their eyes and rationally recognize the truth (which is very difficult after numerous layers of bias, lies and false victimhood covered it) , there will be hope that this violence could stop.
