The face and back of #jihad in #Europe and the world. Muslim Brotherhood, violent and civilizational jihad. The case study of #Bosnia, the #SDA political party and its MFA Bisera Turković. Who is she indeed?
During the war in #Bosnia Turkovic was an ambassador of #Bosnia to #Croatia and one of the main persons for the transport of mujahideen warriors over #Zagreb #Split to #Bosnia. This was also underlined in 2005 by the #US congressman Franks from #Arizona.
Mrs. Turkovic has strong roots in foreign relations especially in the #USA 🇺🇸 since her grandfather Mehmed Resic was one of the founders of the branch of "Dzemijetul Hajrije", 1st Bosnian Muslim society in the USA in #Wilpen #Pennsylvania where he was working as a miner.

Let's start a #Serbian & #Yugoslav map thread.
Here I'll share the best material I compiled over 3 years about the #History of #Serbia & #Yugoslavia.
Let's start with a map of companies implanted in SFR.Yugoslavia.🏭

2. Here comes a #Yugoslav map for foodies.
Unlike for companies, the destruction of #Yugoslavia didn't change the local specialties, which remain the delight of all locals & visitors.
#Meatlovers are like fish in water there, & back in #France I dearly miss ćevap & pljeskavica!🥺 Image
3. Here are 2 pseudo #tourism-maps of #Yugoslavia, respectively made by locals & #Americans.
I wish we helped, as requested, to conserve & protect this #beauty.🕯️
As a citizen of a #NATO country, & especially as a #French, I'm sorry we didn't, even if most of this still exists.🙏 ImageImage

So 🇧🇦 MFA Bisera Turkovic compared #Serbs with Hitler & suggested abolishing the entity of the Republic of Srpska. This was so disgraceful since the Serbs suffered most from Nazis and Croat Usthasas during WWII in their slaughter camps and pits.
But who is Bisera indeed?⏬

THREAD #PopeFrancis gives rare interview to #Serbia semi-official daily @PolitikaOnline. But as "Francisko", a name that in Serbian evokes sombreroed Mexican bandits rather than @Pontifex. Who is responsible for this #Vatican PR disaster? None other than Papal Nuntius to Serbia/2
Appreciate if someone knows of a way to connect this thread together, in right order 1-9. Thanks
2/Archbishop Luciano Suriani who personally interfered into a linguistic/cultural issue in language/culture that he does not know or understand.
When elected, every #Pope takes a regnal name that is always in #Latin, official language of #HolySee. Since time immemorial every /3

Been down the rabbit-hole of #Croatian #folklore - here's a #thread of what I found:

'#VAMPIRES IN DALMATIA: THE EXAMPLE OF THE VILLAGE OF ŽRNOVO ON THE ISLAND OF #KORČULA IN THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY' hrcak.srce.hr/138625

This one is especially close as its my family island.
'From #Folklore to Fiction: Early Literary Manifestations of the #Vampire Motif' hrcak.srce.hr/200179

Fun fact: the term 'vampyr' first appeared in an 11th century Slavic manuscript vilifying #Bogomils, a #Gnostic dualist heresy that was endemic to the #Balkans
'#Witches' Zoopsychonavigations and the Astral Broom in the Worlds of #Croatian Legends as (Possible) Aspects of #Shamanistic Techniques of Ecstasy (and Trance)' researchgate.net/publication/33…

Around 3000 BCE in eastern #Europe, a Proto-Balto-Slavic #language started to diverge from #ProtoIndoEuropean.

The #Slavic branch of the #IndoEuropean #languages began about 2,000 years later when Proto-Slavic deviated from Proto-Balto-Slavic.

“Croatian Legion - Stalingrad” – 🇭🇷 #Croatian stamp from 1943 depicting soldiers fighting at the Battle of Stalingrad. Image
The Croatian Legion (Hrvatska Legija) was a unit of the German Wehrmacht - officially the 369th Reinforced Infantry Division - that fought on the #EasternFront during the Second World War.
The unit was composed of Croatian volunteers from the Axis puppet Independent State of #Croatia, whose name you can see at the bottom of the stamp (Nezavisna Država Hrvatska)
