SHAHEEDS INSTEAD OF PARTISANS

 

The thesis of warriors fighting for one religion /Islam/ in a multiethnic and multi-confessional state and protecting its ethnic diversity cannot be defended even in the Monty Python comedy series, let alone attract Serb Orthodox, Croat Catholics or atheists to such a "BiH bloc".

BIJELJINA, MAY 25 /SRNA/ - Statements by religious and political leaders of the Bosniak people that Shaheeds /holy warriors/ are "the best sons of BiH" completely reveal the lie about "Serb aggression" and the multiethnic commitment of the so-called Army of BiH, and its alleged struggle for civic and secular state.

Shaheeds are, as it is well known, "martyrs for the faith", but not for the faith in the EU, in a multiethnic and civic society and the like, but for - Islam.

And, it is fine because everyone has the right to their spiritual and political affiliations, as long as they do not endanger others.

However, the Shaheed principle in this case endangers all non-Muslims and those seeing BiH as a secular country in the balance of national, entity and civic principles.

This principle, with all these elements, is defined by the Dayton Peace Agreement, and the constitutional act as a part of it.

Statements by BiH Presidency Chairman Šefik Džaferović that "we will never be able to fully repay the Shaheeds for what they did" or by Chief Imam of the Majlis of the Islamic Community Zenica, Jakub Salkić, that the Shaheeds, martyrs, are "the best sons of BiH who gave their lives for it" - are only public recognition of the notorious truth that Bosniak politics primarily fought for the Muslim way of life in BiH.

After all, the leader of that movement, Alija Izetbegović, the writer of the "Islamic Declaration", as well as his party - the SDA, never hid it, while the words "civic BiH" were just mimicry of the multiethnic spin of the then Western mentors of wartime Sarajevo.

Only few offices of Sarajevo-based non-governmental organisations, propaganda remnants of Western media’s increasingly rare reports on BiH and, of course, Sarajevo's political and social circles, keep mentioning the war lie about fighters for "multiethnic BiH" who "defend the country from Serb aggressors".

However, the thesis of warriors fighting for one religion /Islam / in a multiethnic and multi-confessional state and protecting its ethnic diversity cannot be defended even in the Monty Python comedy series, let alone attract Serb Orthodox, Croat Catholics or atheists to such a "BiH bloc".

Today, in fact, after the war, destruction and total internal territorial, political and mental division in BiH, it is no longer important.

Nothing would change anyone's belated confession that "the tsar is naked", that is, that "green Bosnia" and "ecological Bosnia" are not one and the same thing.

However, let’s imagine, hypothetically, the reaction of Bosniak Muslims to the claim that members of a Christian, Orthodox or Catholic organisation actually died for their rights, that they brought them freedom and that they are the "best sons" of BiH.

BiH is a society of irreconcilable differences of three nations and three religions in views on the past, present and future of this soil. This problem has not been solved since the arrival of the Ottoman Empire.

Hence, the chances that the Shaheeds will unite BiH are equal to the chances that Šefik Džaferović or Jakub Salkić will wake up one morning as Orthodox or as Serbs, at least.

And, of course, it will not happen, not even if the High Representative reactivates his far-famed powers. /end/vos
