Srebrenica massacre of 8,000 Moslem men and boys

April 1st, 2010
03:45 PM ET

Very important story from Belgrade:  Serbia's parliament apologizes for the 1995 Srebrenica massacre of 8,000 Moslem men and boys. I covered the Bosnia war. That massacre was the worst in Europe since World War Two. Top Bosnian Serbs were indicted for crimes against humanity and genocide afterward. Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic is now on trial at the Hague.

The lawmakers' apology is a major step towards healing the wounds of that war, and bringing Serbia one step closer to the European Union. But to fully end its former-pariah status, Serbia must arrest Ratko Mladic, the Bosnian Serb military commander during the war. He has been a fugitive for the past 14 years.

    The world must accept, 9/11 was caused by many western injustices against muslims across europe, russia&palestine, that this was only one of the many injustices, blood-sheds&killings of innocent&peace loving muslim people of Bosnia, which triggered a global armed jihad against western interests to this day.

    Can the west's dwindling population afford another 3rd world war???

    The only opposite of war, rape, killings & hatred is "Love"!!!Historically, Sex & women have been the cause of 60% wars in the world by men!!

    Now with crisis worsening in Chechnya, Dagestan, Afghanistan, lraq, Pakistan, Gaza, Somalia & Sudan; all thanks to western instigations, shall we expect a new generation of Jihadists? Or shall we expect an orgy&conspiracy of "Love" between muslim men & western women?

    Hard to believe that western intelligence&covert agencies have over-looked this one-time favorite methodology of pacifying the sex starved-violent-blood-thirsty generation.

    Use your money & women to calm the jihadists not your weapons!! Assuredly it is a guaranteed method to ever-lasting peaceful victory!

    Maybe a cross cultural mattings&marriages may help soothe some of the biiterness suffered by many in all these conflicts.

    Make Love Not War!!!

    It is a conspiracy from last six hundred years by the Christians and now by USA from last Sixty years to massacre in millions to decrease the population of MUSLIMS and there culture and religion, proof is in the pudding, in USA and Europe that they are taking over the minerals of the muslim nations. Saudi Arabia is the key instrument, that can stop the MUSLIM MASSACRE by uniting the muslim nation. The solution must come from, Muslims, there leaders, and there head of states, must Unite for the common cause to reverse the course. Thus first step is taken by Pakistan, the SUNNI's and now Iran the SHIA's must join hands, Plus Turkey the RCD pact encircle other muslim states.

    Pray to all MIGHTY ALLAH, we need his help only.

      Daniel,People so often compare "abortion clniic bombers" to extreme fundamental Islamic car bombers, etc. One difference is that "abortion clniic bombers" are isolated instances of people being insane and evil- it's not a movement being taught or accepted in any religious circles as being a "pathway to martyrdom." As a follower of Christ and teacher of the Bible, I can tell you that anyone who does that kind of evil is certainly not living the lifestyle of faith/worldview that Jesus taught and Paul encouraged.Mike, I think that if we were to see Jesus face-to-face, we'd all be surprised! As humans, each and every one of us are guilty of projecting our cultural expectations and interpretations of Jesus. The best we can do is try to understand who the Bible writers revealed him to be (and there are differing images- Jesus as meek and lowly, Jesus as revolutionary, and Jesus as the coming king of glory- a warrior on a horse!) I'm sure when the time comes, we'll all be set straight. He's in the business of doing that: setting things right.

    From 1995 til 2010 is just 15 YEARS.
    I am glad that the Monster serbs are finally Apologizing.
    However, we are still waiting for the Apologies of Israel for the massacres in 1948; "Dar Yaseen" to name one
