It’s dawn in #Srebrenica. While July 11 has become part of global human rights discourse, two pts: 1. Srebrenica was not an isolated event but the culmination of a wider Bosnian Genocide. 2. Genocide denial increasingly rampant in Balkans, actively promoted by the Serbian state.
Both of these are important pts typically lost in the international coverage. Yes, Srebrenica was a genocide but it was only one horrific episode in a nearly 4 yr program of extermination and expulsion, the appropriate term for which is the Bosnian Genocide.
Many of the same actors, and their direct political descendants, responsible for planning and executing the Bosnian Genocide are today instrumental in the organized campaign of revisionism. Now as then, it’s all emanating from the top of the political leadership in Belgrade.

[NIZ] Negiranje genocida u Srebrenici među zvaničnicima Republike Srbije ustaljena je praksa uprkos presudama @ICTYnews i @CIJ_ICJ. U narednih sedam tvitova sumiramo izjave zvaničnika u kojima negiraju genocid od 2012. godine.

Na početku svog mandata 2012. godine, tadašnji predsednik Tomislav Nikolić izjavljuje da u Srebrenici nije bilo genocida.
Sledeće godine, u aprilu 2013., Nikolić se u intervjuu za @MultimedijaBHRT izvinjava za zločine, ali izbegava reč genocid, minimizira odgovornost, relativizuje kvalifikaciju govoreći da je sve što je počinjeno u ratovima devedesetih genocid, te ignoriše već tada donesene presude.

SNSD regime in Banja Luka has set up a “commission” to systematically deny multiple ICTY decisions, plus countless academic analyses, which established killings in #Srebrenica as genocide. incredibly, the two chiefs of the commission are Israeli nationals. ba.n1info.com/English/NEWS/a…
Few pts: 1. Prof. Greif & Prof. Israeli, who have held prominent academic posts in US & Europe, should now be marked as ringleaders of a politically-orchestrated genocide denial effort. 2. Sarajevo should expel them from BiH for same reason & all other participating foreign nats.
3. Statement by @USEmbassySJJ is encouraging but insufficient. Not only must this systemic attack on rule of law be rejected, those responsible must be penalized in some meaningful fashion by entire international community in BiH.

THREAD 1. Since posting about #HolocaustMemorialDay , encouraging us to remember where hatred leads - #Srebrenica + #Holocaust genocides for example + standing up against #antisemitism #homophobia #Islamophobia #racism etc, I have been trolled
2. Who are these trolls? They are sick, narrow minded bigots of the Muslim faith (+ one Islamophobe). What have they been saying? Well I've been called: shabbos, House Muslim, House Arab, sellout, Zionist, shill for Israel + accused of attacking the right to free speech
3. Free speech and antisemitic speech are two different things. I reported this bigot because he is a bigot and Twitter clearly agreed with me. Free speech is not the right to promote hatred. I did call someone a nutjob I admit and got told I was demonising others

11 Temmuz 1995'de, 23 sene önce bugün #Srebrenica'da binlerce Boşnak BM güçleri gözetiminde (hatta neredeyse izniyle) katledildi ve toplu mezarlara gömüldü. Bugüne kadar bulunabilen ceset sayısı 8372. Savaş öncesinde şehir nüfusunun %90'ı müslüman iken bugün sadece %2'si.
+Bosna'daki iç savaş sırasında #Srebrenica BM tarafından "güvenli bölge" ilan edilmiş ve buraya silahlı "barış gücü" yerleştirilmişti. Katliamdan kaçan onbinlerce Bosnalı "güvenli bölge" ilan edilen #Srebrenica'ya sığınmıştı. Karadziç birlikleriyle "güvenli bölge"yi kuşattı ++
+BM Barış Gücü'nün komutanı Hollandalı Thomas Karremans çatışmaya girmekten çekinip #Srebrenica'yı Sırp güçlerine (hem de törenle) teslim etti. Hollandalı komutan daha sonraları "BM tarafından yeterince destek sağlanmadığını için #Srebrenica'yı terketmek zorunda kaldık" dedi.
