Violence Against Serbs in Kosovo, WWII and Beyond (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 05/31/23 5:06 am)

The centuries-old Kosovo problem most probably is not as it has been related to us by the mainstream Western press. The same applies for the recent Donbas problem, as the war started in April 2014.

The Guardian in its "Special report: Kosovo" by Jonathan Steele on 18 August 2000 stated:

"The final toll of civilians confirmed massacred by Yugoslav forces in Kosovo is likely to be under 3000, far short of the numbers claimed by NATO governments during last year's controversial air strike on Yugoslavia...

"The fact that far fewer Kosovo Albanians were massacred than suggested by NATO will raise sharp questions about the organization's handling of the media and its information strategy."

William Cohen, the US defense secretary, announced that 100,000 Albanian men had disappeared!

Also, the number of deported has been questioned, but clearly if of a population of 1.7 million you deport 1.5 million, practically all the population is gone.  Instead it has remained practically the same, while the number of Serbs is continuously dwindling. The terrorist attacks against civilian Serbs are also never remembered.

However, in November 2020 Hashim Thaci (The Snake), former leader of the UCK and prime minister in 2008 and president in 2016, is on trial at The Hague for war crimes and crimes against humanity. I never heard of this development in our media in Italy. The Hague first focused its attention against the Serbs and then after 21 years also against Albanians...ridiculous.

As I said, mutual killing in the region goes back centuries, but if we want to consider only WWII the Italian Army protected the civilian Serbs (as well as the Jews) from their Albanian Kosovar allies on a savage warpath against the Serbs.  The president of Great Albania Mustafa Kruja in June 1942 declared: "The Serbian population in Kosovo shall be expelled soonest...the Serb colonists shall be killed."

When Italy surrendered in 1943 there was no more a protective shield for Serbs (and Jews) and the 21 Waffen Gebirgsdivision SS Skanderberg had a green light for killing and deportation, while the Muslim community proclaimed a jijad against the Christian Slavs.

As reported by the NBC on 18 June 1999, when the "peacekeeping" German Forces arrived in Prize, they were warmly welcomed by Kosovars former members of the Skanderberg with a Nazi salute.

JE comments:  The 21st Mountain Division SS Skanderberg was a particularly vile outfit.  Mainstream histories describe them as focused more on looting, raping and murdering than on actual military action.  Click below for a refresher.  It is telling that the division was not founded until February 1944, when the war was already lost for the Axis.
