Hace unos d铆as (27enero) el terror isl谩mico llev贸 la muerte a una Catedral de #Filipinas 馃嚨馃嚟

20 muertos y m谩s de 100 heridos demuestran, otra vez, que con yihadistas no se negocia.

La masacre fue un mensaje de fuerza en un triste aniversario.

Ese domingo estaba marcado por la conmemoraci贸n de otra masacre, la conocida por #SAF44 en Mamasapano (tambi茅n en Mindanao).

En 2015, durante una misi贸n anti-terrorista, 44 miembros de la Fuerzas Especiales murieron en una emboscada, seguida de ejecuciones a los capturados vivos
El #SAF44 fue una tragedia nacional a la que #Europa no prest贸 atenci贸n.

Quiz谩 por que los islamistas de Mindanao (el feudo de los terroristas del Frente Moro de Liberaci贸n) son fuertes gracias a las ayudas que reciben de pa铆ses como Arabia Saud铆 馃嚫馃嚘 y Turqu铆a 馃嚬馃嚪

I want to turn your attention to the #Balkans.

Tens of thousands are protesting in #Serbia for the fifth week in a row. Despite the snow and cold weather, despite the censorship in the country, the people want their voice to be heard. I hope the world takes a good look.
Publicly owned communications giant Telekom bought a private cable network Kopernikus (owned by a brother of a high ranking ruling party official) for 鈧200m.

Money was then used to finance the acquisitin of the remaining two foreign owned TV stations with national frequency.
The reasons for the protest:

-wide scale censorship and media control
-beating of @BorkoStef, one of the opposition leaders with metal rods
-eroding democracy and freedom of elections
-shady negotiations with #Kosovo behind closed doors
-corruption

My father served in the #JNA He was stationed in Zemun. I have a beautiful photograph of him in his army uniform. My mother still has a small calendar of his, with 365 crosses on it. She knows the exact day he contracted pneumonia that year, still has all the letters he wrote.
That was the time I don鈥檛 remember. I look at the black and white photo of my tall, smiling father, and I know that like thousands of ethnic Albanians of his generation he would fight for Yugoslavia if needed
I remember 1989. Many Albanians serving in JNA, returned in coffins.
The coffins were sealed, the families of these unfortunate 19 year olds were not allowed to open them, and the funerals were hastily held at night.
My mother went to one such funeral in the middle of the night. Because in one of those coffins lay one of her students.

Britain鈥檚 Collaboration with pro-Jihadist Forces in #Kosovo.
How the British colluded with the rebel Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), which fought alongside al-Qaida militants and essentially acted as NATO鈥檚 ground forces in Kosovo.

bit.ly/2rXDP0z
October 2006, Chancellor Gordon Brown said: The threat from al-Qaida did not begin on September 11th 鈥 indeed the attacks on the twin towers were being planned as the United States was taking action with Europe to protect Muslims in the former #Yugoslavia.
The British were providing military training to forces connected to the very people planning the 9/11 attacks.
By mid-1998 the KLA controlled parts of Kosovo and had armed and organised around 30,000 fighters

鈥 the last time missing @INTERPOL Pres. #MengHongwei was in the news (aside from a September blip abt a spat b/t #Serbia/#Kosovo re: #INTERPOL membership) was in July. He met w/ #Russia'n Investigative Cmte Chairman #Bastrykin & was criticized by Prosecutor General #YuriChaika.
鈥 another official who was detained by Communist #China recently is #NurBekri. He was head of the #PRC's National Energy Administration & was a #Uyghur. He went missing about a week after meeting w/ #Putin. Is it possible that #Beijing fears #Russia is recruiting its people?

I spent months trying to warn ppl that Vucic & Dodik had invested serious capital in selling Trump WH proxies on partitions plans for #Kosovo, knowing that it was step 1 in rebooting Milosevic鈥檚 鈥淕reater Serbia鈥 project. Not alarmism now, eh? balkaninsight.com/en/article/us-鈥
ITT from March I explicitly warned that we would hear more & more talk of partitions & new borders in the #Balkans. It鈥檚 product of aggressive Serb nationalist lobbying 鈥 backed by RUS 鈥 & would result only in renewed violence. Full stop, no exceptions.
The reason why I even bothered responding to this Tim Less character, for instance, was bc I recognized was testing the waters for dangerous ideas. Kosovo is the first target bc it鈥檚 鈥渟oft鈥, partitioning BiH is the real objective tho. Complete 90s redux. the-american-interest.com/2017/05/02/in-鈥

Xhaka le marc贸 el gol a #SRB e hizo el 谩guila albanesa. Tremenda provocaci贸n del #SUI a sus rivales.
Granit Xhaka es el #SUI que acaba de marcar el gol y su hermano Taulant representa a la Selecci贸n de #Albania. Ambos se enfrentaron en la Euro 2016 en #FRA.
驴Se acuerdan las Eliminatorias para la Euro 2016? Se enfrentaban #SRB y #Albania en #Partiz谩n, todo era un caos entre ambas parcialidades y fue peor cuando el serbio Stefan Mitrovic baj贸 un drone con la bandera de la Gran Albania. Ah铆 comenz贸 el caos.
