Now it's on to Saturday, March 1st -- Please Join Us

They're walking & praying!

Let's hear it for the folks who pulled off the first Americans for Serbian Sovereignty peaceful, positive, proactive, make-a-statement march in downtown San Diego.

It's not too late--you can join them tomorrow, March 1st--same place: in front of the Federal Building (880 Front St); same time: 11:30AM; same enthusiasm: let your government know you're mad as hell and you're not taking it anymore!
And if you can't make it, you can still pray and send letters to your representatives in Washington.

Ready, Set, Go! Rally Begins in an Hour!

If you haven't gathered your US or Serbian flag yet, get down now!

Jennifer and the rest of the San Diego Serbs are getting ready to march in protest in downtown San Diego in front of the Federal Building.

Whoever you are, if you believe in sovereignty of nations, get on down, NOW!

Bush, Clinton, and the rest don't have a clue what they signed on to when they gave the green flag to Kosovo separation.

Only one candidate for President seems to know what is all about: Ron Paul. It may be too late for him to crush the McCain surge, but he never tires of putting out the message.

Now is the time! Go, Americans, Serbs, Russians, Greeks, Spanierds, and all peace loving people of the world--show them what you think about this latest foreign policy madness.

Kosovo: A Crying Shame

Once again the United States has sold out the good people and rewarded the bad. I am speaking of the recognition of Kosovo as an independent state by our government. As a bit of background information, the Jewish Defense League was the only activist Jewish organization to support the Serbian people and their right to their ancestral homeland during the war that dissolved Yugoslavia during the 1990s. While we did not approve of alleged war crimes by some Serbians, we understood they felt they were entitled to settle the score with their Nazi-loving Croatian and Bosnian neighbors. . . .During World War II, Yugoslavia signed the Tripartite Pact with Nazi Germany and the other Axis Powers, an act that resulted in a coup d’etat. A new government was installed and promptly withdrew the country’s support for the Axis. This enraged Hitler so much that he sent his soldiers into Yugoslavia and took over the country in a matter of days. The Nazis dissolved the government and replaced it with a puppet state led by Milan Nedic. Under his leadership, several Nazi concentration camps were established, such as Banjica and Sajmiste.Next door in Croatia, the Nazi-lovers there were massacring Serbs, Jews and Roma (formerly called Gypsies). In the 1970s, the Jewish Defense League discovered a Croatian Nazi war criminal, Andrija Artukovic, living the good life in the Surfside Colony near Long Beach, California, and was in large part responsible for the revocation of his American naturalization status. JDL Chairman Irv Rubin personally escorted the father of L.A. radio personality Bill Handel to the federal courthouse so that he could testify against Artukovic. Before intervention by my late husband, witnesses were being harassed by Artukovic supporters and family members. The case took several years to complete because of pressure by Croatians living in the United States and members of the Catholic Church. In his role as minister of the interior in the Nazi puppet state of Croatia, Artukovic supervised the genocide hundreds of thousands of Jews, Serbs and Roma. After he was stripped of his American citizenship, Artukovic was returned to Yugoslavia where he was sentenced to death for his war crimes. Because Artukovic was in ill-health, the court there said he was too infirm to be executed, and the Nazi murderer died in a prison hospital. Croatians were infamous for their worship of the Nazis and their brutality to their fellow man, like hang their neighbors on meathooks in kosher butcher shops. And as far as Bosnians are concerned, they are mostly Muslims. During World War II, a proud fighting unit was the 20,000 member Bosnian Muslim 13th Waffen-SS Division Hanzar. Hanzar means “to slit the throat” in Arabic, and that’s what these animals did to 300,000 Serbs and 60,000 Bosnian Jews. They also killed thousands of Americans in Italy, where they fought against the 5th U.S. Army division for six months. None of those animals faced war crimes tribunals for their actions. By the way, their spiritual leader was Hitler’s bootlicker, Mohammed Amin al-Husseini, better known as the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem.Back to Kosovo. Kosovo is made up of 92% ethnic Albanians, whose religion is predominantly Islam. There are over two million people living in Kosovo, but no Jews live there. They used to. Sixty or so years ago, their neighbors made sure they wouldn’t return. And what happened to all the Serbians who used to live there? According to history professor Carl Savich, ethnic cleansing has been perpetrated on the Serbian people throughout the history of the region, first by the Ottoman Turks, then the Albanians, the Nazis, the Communists, and now by the Western nations that have accepted the Kosovans claim that the land is theirs. In reality, taking Kosovo away from the Serbs is the Albanian dream of linking Albania with Kosovo (are Bosnia and Herzegovina next?) in order to create a Greater Albania.And what about the Serbs? The Serbs share a tragic past with the Jewish people. They have lived in peace and friendship with the Jews. They have died alongside us. What is wrong with the world? Despite historical proof, the world puts the screws to the Serbs just as it does to us. It’s a crying shame.

San Diego Protests Breakaway Kosovo

Yes, they did it!
The San Diego Serbian Community organized a two-day demonstration to show their solidarity with "battered" Serbia, home of their ancestors and, for many of them, the present-day home of cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and even parents and children! Although many of them have never set foot in Kosovo, this mysterious place is the "Holy Land" of their version of the Christian Eastern Orthodox faith, and they view it as something precious, sacred, and now at risk.

Notwithstanding their opinions, consider what the West (that includes the USA) has done to the Balkans the past 10 years. It is something every American should take notice of and not be proud (inspite of how Ms. Hillary brags). Do you think our government would stand by and let San Diego county secede from the US and join Mexico? We fought one big mother of a war over sesession, and i think we would do it again if such a scenario ever came about.

So I implore you, my fellow San Diegans, join these good folks, your friends and neighbors, this Friday and Saturday. Show that you feel their pain, and that you don't want the US government (that means you, Mr. G W Bush!) acknowledging breakaway "states" such as Kosovo!

For more, see their news release.
