The ogasmic trance – Albanian invaders welcoming Neoottoman Erdogan in Serbian Kosovo
Turkish PM Recep Tayyin Erdogan is in his formal visit to quasi state of Kosovo on Wednesday. Addressing Kosovo citizens (only Albanian invaders) at the main square of Prizren town, Erdogan said that Turkey is Kosovo and Kosovo is Turkey.
“Turkey is Kosovo and Kosovo is Turkey. We are that much close that Kosovo citizen from Pec wrote the text of our national anthem,” said Erdogan. He added that Kosovo and Turkish people have same history and civilization and that it should not be forgotten. “Languages can be different. Religion, sect, faces can be different, but we are all children of same country,” said Turkish PM. “My family, I and ministers of my delegation feel like at home. Today I greet all Albanians, Bosnians, Turks and Gorans,” he said. ( what about Serbs? )
Erdogan stressed the importance of building a mutual future. “We will build our future together, same as our grandfathers, our ancestors did. We lived here as brothers for centuries and we will continue so,” said Erdogan.He pointed out that Turkey will not have any understanding for any bloodshed in the Balkan in future.
“We want domination of peace and stability in this region.” “Past is in the past”, said Erdogan, “we will not look into the past. We will look into our common future.” “Those who want the stability will work jointly in creating a better future, as here in this place where we are now, so in Bosnia, Macedonia and entire region.” Erdogan said that he wants to see Balkans in peace and added that Turkey in that sense has historical experience, as well as political determination.
“We will not point out the differences but communion. We will turn this region into a garden of beautiful roses. By heart we supported the independence of Kosovo, and our support to Kosovo will continue. We will be strong and united as brothers.” Erdogan said that all Turkey greets citizens of Kosovo. He reminded on recent speech of Albanian PM Edi Rama who said that in Turkey he saw all religious monuments in one place. “Our cities have always been symbols of communion. Prizren can serve as an example of it,” said Erdogan.
So they did it again – the world had brought Ottoman empire to our lands. The world powers are not even discrete concerning that anymore. So the Turkish PM T. R. Erdogan arrived to illegally occupied Serbian province, addressing in his speech only Albanian and ‘Bosniak’ inhabitants and completely ignoring where and to whose homeland he came. We heard from Erdogan that Kosovo is Turkey; the statement caused applauses and euphoria among Albanians, who, in a familiar and as seen before manner of celebrating the occupiers, almost orgasmicly chanted in support.
Untill last year… In the part of southern Serbia, which is under the management of KFOR (NATO forces in Kosovo i Metohija) and where the Powers illegally created another quasi (Albanian) state, the Albanian Ministry of Education, Science and Technology has formed an Audit Commission in in order to compile the report about the situation with the history books, which are more likely to be ‘adopted’ by experts from – Turkey.
One group of Turkish experts went to ‘Kosovo’ in March in order to determine whether the facts and terms in the history books which Turkish government finds offensive and thus sought to change, are corrected. Representatives of Kosovo Albanian Ministry of Education confirmed that this was done ‘in the spirit of the academic cooperation between all European countries that do not have hate in textbooks, and whose history books are pleasant to read and “friendly”. The audit committee consisted of an Albanian history professor Shkelzen Raca, Albanian geography teacher Rushdie Plana and a scientist (undefined filed science) Hisen Matos.
”Kosovo” Albanian deputy minister of education, Nehaj Mustafa then stated that Kosovo’s citizens should not be afraid that it will change the history of the Albanian people as a whole and of the Albanian people in Kosovo in particular. Because the ministry does not write history, but historians write history.”
(Oh, I am sure it will suite Albanians and those who bought them in Balkans interest, but what about Serbs, whose history is to be changed and falsified?
Andric’s work reveal his deterministic philosophy and his SENSE OF COMPASSION AND ARE WRITTEN OBJECTIVELY AND SOBERLY, in language of great beauty and purity. The Nobel Prize committee commented particularly on the “ephic force” with which he handled his material, especially in “The Bridge on the Drina”. Here is an excerpt from the above mentioned Nobel Prize book “Bridge on the Drina,” which describes how this “tax in blood” felt, as it is told and retold chilling blood of generations of surviving Orthodox Christians:
…the necessary number of healthy, bright and good looking lads between ten and fifteen years old had been found without difficulty, even though many parents had hidden their children in the forests, taught them how to appear half witted, clothed them in rags and let them get filthy, to avoid the Aga’s choice. Some even went so far as to maim their own children, cutting off one of their fingers with an axe.
…a little way behind the last horses in that strange convoy straggled, dishevelled and exhausted, many parents and relatives of those children who were being carried away forever to a foreign world where they would be circumcised, become Turkish and, forgetting their faith, their country and their origin, would pass their lives in the service of the Empire. They were for the most part women, mothers, grandmothers and sisters of the stolen children.
[The women would get driven away but…] ….gather again a little later behind the convoy and strive with tear-filled eyes to see once again over the panniers the heads of the children who were being taken from them. The mothers were especially persistent and hard to restrain. Some would rush forward not looking where they were going, with bare breasts and dishevelled hair, forgetting everything about them, wailing and lamenting as if at a burial, while others almost out of their minds moaned as if their wombs were being torn by birthpangs and blinded with tears ran right onto the horsemen’s whips and replied to every blow with the fruitless question: “Where are you taking him? Why are you taking him from me?” Some tried to speak clearly to their children and give them some last part of themselves, as much as might be said in a couple of words, some recommendation or advice for the way…
“Rade, my son, don’t forget your mother…’
“Ilija, Ilija, Ilija!” screamed another woman, searching desperately with her glances for the dear well-known head and repeating this incessantly as if she wished to carve into the child’s memory that name which would in a day or two be taken from him forever.”
It should not pass without mention that once Westerners conquered Bosnia, recently, one of the first thing they did in the course of “engineering democracy” (and while trying to impose Muslim rule on Bosnian Serbs) was to ban use of Dr. Andrich’s works from school books for the Serbian children.
In every sense, Albanians found the special treatment they got from the Turks, once they converted to Islam, not unusual. They were treated as a separate category in Byzantine and in Serbian times. Their warriors were in great demand, Dusan settled many Albanians in conquered lands as a reward for their services. By the 19th century, in areas where Serbs and Albanians were interrelating, something more critical than ethnic or religious differences was becoming evident as an impediment to communication between them.
This was the disparity in political outlook or concepts. The Serbs had a very clear idea about Serbian statehood, while the Albanians, with occasionally weak blips of Albanianism, were for the most part Turkish oriented. While the Serbs dreamed of their Serbian state, the Albanians tended to identify with the Ottoman Empire of which they were a part.
Albanian author Sami Bey Frasheri, in his history of Albania, written in Turkish in 1899 and later translated into German, describes the Albano-Turkish affinity in the following words:
“Turks were finding devout and courageous co-fighters in Albanians, while Albanians found the Turkish kind of governing very much to their taste. In Turkish times, Albania was a wealthy and blossoming country because Albanians were riding together with Turks in war campaigns all over the world and were returning with rich booty: gold and silver, costly arms, and fine horses from Arabia, Kurdistan, and Hungary.”
(Was war Albanien, was ist es, was wird es werden? ) [What was Albania? What is it? What will it be?], Vienna and Leipzig, 1913,.
Warring and fighting, the Islamic converts developed an aggressive mentality, and in times of peace turned on their Christian neighbors.
They began viewing themselves as the propagators of the Islamic faith. Much better armed than the deprived Christians, they left a bloody trail in their forceful Islamization drives among the Serbs.
An old Serbian religious inscription, made in 1574, reads: “This is where great Albanian violence took place, especially by Mehmud Begovic in Pec, Ivan Begovic in Skadar, Sinnan-Pashic Rotulovic in Prizren, and Slad Pashic in Djakovitsa – they massacred 2,000 Christians “… Have mercy upon us, Oh Lord. Look down from Heaven and free your flock” (translated from Ljubomir Stojanovic, Stari Srpski zapisi i natpisi [Old Serbian Inscriptions and Epitaphs], Belgrade, 1902, Vol. 1, p. 219). There are, in the same vein, numerous other memorials or inscriptions in Stojanovic’s collection.
In a sense, Albanians found the special treatment they got from the Turks, once they converted to Islam, not unusual. They were treated as a separate category in Byzantine and in Serbian times. Their warriors were in great demand, and one of the ablest generals that Tsar Dusan had at the time of his Greek campaign was an Albanian by origin. Dusan settled many Albanians in conquered lands as a reward for their services. Not only as mercenaries, but as a sheep and other livestock-raising ethnic group, the Albanians enjoyed a special and separate status.
By the 19th century, in areas where Serbs and Albanians were interrelating, something more critical than ethnic or religious differences was becoming evident as an impediment to communication between them. This was the disparity in political outlook or concepts. The Serbs had a very clear idea about Serbian statehood, while the Albanians, with occasionally weak blips of Albanianism, were for the most part Turkish oriented. While the Serbs dreamed of their Serbian state, the Albanians tended to identify with the Ottoman Empire of which they were a part.
The impalment reserved for Christians in Kosovo and Bosnia under Ottoman rule
From Consul Blunt writing from Pristina on 14 July 1860, we learn about the situation in the province of Kosovo and Macedonia:
“Christian evidence in the Medjlises (tribunal) as a rule is refused. Knowing this, the Christians generally come forward prepared with Mussulman witnesses (…), twenty years ago, it is true, they had no laws beyond the caprice of their landlords.”
Concerning the right to buy land, he writes; “Every possible obstacle is still thrown in the way of the purchase of lands by Christians, and very often after they have succeeded in purchasing and improving land, it is no secret that on one unjust pretext or another, it has been taken from them.”
The Serbians of the Rayah lived under great oppression and humiliation, their only means of protection being through the Serbian Patriarch so long as one existed.
In case of acts of injustice or violence suffered at the hands of individual Turks, there was no possible redress. –
The Orthodox Christian Serbs were forbidden the use of horses or camels, only mules and asses being allowed them.
They were forbidden to ride even a mule or an ass in the presence of a Turk (or in the presence of an converted, former Serbs).
It was not permitted that their houses should have a better appearance than Turkish houses.
For their faith they had much to suffer. The Serbian Orthodox clergy, few in number, were kept in miserable conditions, and churches which had been destroyed were not allowed to be rebuilt, the building of new churches being strictly forbidden.
The sound of church bells was forbidden as was also the reading aloud of the Holy Scriptures or the pronunciation of the name of Jesus Christ.
It was not lawful to make the sign of the cross, to show a cross, or to eat pork in sight of a Turk.
The Rayah were not allowed openly to bury their dead; Christian burials took place at night or in secret; mourning for the dead was strictly prohibited either by costume or by symbol or in any other way.
Church services were often held in some secluded spot in forest or glen, sometimes under a chosen tree marked with a cross;
In Ottoman Empire in Balkans Christians were but slaves at nonexistent mercy of their Muslim lords. Many, many books worldwide write about different horrors the Christians endured.
One of the most humiliating forms of oppression was that Muslims gave themselves “right of the first night”. In practice it meant that Turkish (or local Muslim Slav) lord would spend the first night with the new Christian bride. The groom had to take shoes off and silently circle the house while the Turk makes love to his wife.
The Serbians in general refused to accept that door of escape from durance vile and remained true to their Orthodox Christian and national faith, even though the long night of practical extinction, hoping for a dawn though long deferred.
Because of unbearable life condition, many of the Serbian nobles and numbers of the common people fled to Serb lands under Venice or those under Austro Hungary [i.e. to Krajina, now occupied by Croatia].
With the latest visit to Kosovo, the Turkey got back to the scene of their worst crime.
