Monument to the Victims of Communism in Ottawa - Canada
Communist Sign the petition to support the building of a Monument to the Victims of Communism, in Ottawa, Canada

To: Parliament of Canada
While the horrors of Nazism are well known, who knows that the Soviet Union murdered 20 million people? Who knows that China's dictators have slaughtered an estimated 60 million? Who knows that the Communist holocaust has exacted a death toll surpassing that of all of the wars of the 20th century combined ? Just as we must grasp Communism's brutality, we must understand the true cause of this era's most significant event: the fall of the Soviet Union. While we believe that Vaclav Havel was right when he saw the fall of the Communist empire as an event on the same scale as the fall of the Roman Empire, it was not the end of Communism. Sign and Join this petition

Boycott of Greek products in Albania
Boycott of Greek products in Albania!

Albanian nationalists, who accuse Greece of turning the country into a non-conventional colony of Greece, are using the protest to halt the rising power of Greece in the country. In 2006 Greek Imports reached EUR 406mn, while Greek investments are estimated at over EUR 400mn. Greek companies and businesses own substantial shares in the telecommunication, petroleum and financial markets in the country. Strong protests were organized by the "Cham" population, ethnic Albanians that used to live in the territory of current Greece till the end of World War II. Afterwards, they forcedly expelled from their properties. Therefore we call on you to Boycott greek products in Albania

Kosova Politics:

Kosova in Great Serbian 'soccer diplomacy' (!)

Kosova Politics
    ESSAY

    By Prof Dr. Mehdi Hyseni - Author is Ph.D. in International Political Relations

    Tue, January 29, 2008 7:52 am

    Kosova Map
    Recently I had opportunity to read an article under title “The case against Kosovo independence” written by Miodrag Isakov, ambassador of Serbia in Israel, which is published in “The Jerusalem Post”, December 12, 2007.

    However, his simulation is more than a diplomatic nonsense because of fact that he has confounded booth diplomatic and soccer sport rules attempting to justify “Serbian international law” that “traditionally” Serbia has the historical right to rule Albanian Kosova as “its inalienable part” of Serbia’s territory. But the truth is another, in Albanians side.

    Kosova has never been legal part of Serbia’s territory and sovereignty, but illegal its colony (1912-1999). Albanians have never been the minority in Kosova, but vast majority from 1371 when they have had their state under Balshaj rulers . This historical fact is unknown for Serbian ambassador in Tel Aviv, and for the Serbian history, politics and diplomacy entirely. On the contrary of this fact, Serbian ambassador Miodrag Isakov this “diplomatic” commentary has written in order to oppose the right of independence of Kosova, trying to “justify” that through his imaginable soccer game between Israel and England: “If I were to say that Israel deserved to qualify for the European championship, most local football fans might agree. Israel played really well - the best ever”.

Hashim Thaçi - Prime Minister of Kosova Independence

Kosova Politics
    Hashim Thaçi (Albanian: Hashim Thaçi, sometimes Thaqi, often referred to as Thaci in English-language media, Serbian: Хашим Тачи, Hašim Tači) (born 24 April 1968 in Broćna (Albanian: Burojë) in the municipality of Skenderaj -northwest of Drenica valley-, in Kosovo, Serbia, Yugoslavia) is the president of the Democratic Party of Kosovo (PDK) and former political leader of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA).
    Hashim Thaci


    Before Thaçi emigrated to Switzerland, he studied philosophy and history at the University of Priština. By 1993, Thaçi joined the Kosovar Albanian political emigration in Switzerland.


    There he became one of the founders of the People's Movement of Kosovo (LPK), a political party in Kosovo devoted to Albanian nationalism and the movement to unify all Albanian-populated areas into one state.

    In 1993, Thaçi was sent in and became a member of the inner circle of the KLA. Thaçi (nom de guerre "Gjarpëri" [the Snake]) was responsible for securing financial means, training and armament of recruits, teaching them in Albania under the auspices of its Kosovar-sympathetic government, to be dispatched to Kosovo.

NOT INDEPENDENCE, BUT THE PARTITION ..

    Essay

    By Mehdi Hyseni - Author is Ph.D. in International Relations

    NOT INDEPENDENCE, BUT THE PARTITION OF ALBANIAN KOSOVA WOULD HAVE CAUSED DISASTER IN BALKANS

    Kosova Map
    The purpose of this essay is to clarify wrong and speculative concepts and views about colonial issue of Kosova. I believe that this time (when Kosova becomes object of the examination of the international community such as the Untied Nations, European Union, NATO and Kosovo Contact Group) is particularly propitious for this examination for these main reasons.

    First, Kosova is not minority, but colonial problem. Second, Kosova is a part of the integral indigenous territory of the Ethnic Albania, not at all of Serbia. Third, solution about future status of Kosova must be according to contemporary international law of self-determination and de-colonization forms which are the basis of one, and should be applied on Albanian Kosova in conformity with principle of equal rights of nations, large and small (Preamble,Chapeter I, Artcle 1 Purposes and Principles of UN Charter). Fourth, what are the real motivations and reasons that the United States of America and its Western European allies support independence of Kosova.

    In order to accomplish these very important tasks, this work must take into consideration the relevance of the criteria’s and values (freedom, security, order, justice, democracy, peace, welfare and human rights etc.)"

NATO Commander Warns Against Violence In Kosovo

Kosova Politics
    Associated Press(AP)

    PRISTINA, Serbia (AP)--A senior North Atlantic Treaty Organization official warned Kosovo's extremists Monday not to test the alliance's resolve in keeping control over the province's security.
    Kosova Map

    The 17,000-strong peacekeeping force, known as KFOR, was "trained and prepared to handle disgraceful behavior," said Adm. Harry Ulrich, NATO's commander for southeastern Europe.

    Ulrich is visiting the troubled north amid fears tensions will rise between Kosovo's ethnic Albanian majority and Serb minority as U.N.-mediated talks aimed at resolving the province's long-term status continue.

    Human rights watchdogs have criticized the alliance's peacekeepers, saying they failed to protect the province's minority Serbs during several days of rioting in March 2004 that plunged the U.N.-run province back into ethnic strife and left 19 dead and thousands displaced.

    "I challenge the leaders of Kosovo and the good people of Kosovo not to go down that path," Ulrich said.

    He met local Serb and U.N. officials in the ethnically tense town of Kosovska Mitrovica and is scheduled to lunch with the chief U.S. diplomat in Kosovo, Tina Kaidanow.

Kosovo Serbs boycott Vienna talks

KOSOVA
    BBC News

    The Serb delegation from Kosovo has boycotted a session of talks about the future of the province.

    The second day of negotiations brokered by the United Nations in Vienna concentrated on the rights of the province's minorities.
    Kosova Map

    The Serb representatives said they did not accept being given the status of a minority.

    The talks are trying to resolve issues of education, health care, police and justice systems.

    The Tuesday session on minority rights was attended by the delegation from Belgrade.

    The first day of the latest round of talks on Monday ended with no progress on the major stumbling blocks between the ethnic Serb and Albanian communities.

    There is international pressure on both sides to resolve the long-term political status of the province by the end of the year.

    Officially still part of Serbia, Kosovo has been run by the UN since the war there ended in 1999.

First 100 days of Ceku's government spark mixed feedback

KOSOVA

    Kosovo Prime Minister Agim Ceku reported to parliament on his first 100 days in office, but opposition politicians boycotted the session over a procedural dispute. Meanwhile, citizens of Pristina weigh in on the Ceku administration

    By Blerta Foniqi for Southeast European Times in Pristina – 19/07/06

    Kosovo's lawmakers last week heard Prime Minister Agim Ceku's report on the first 100 days of his government. Much of his report focused on the
    Kosovo Prime Minister Agim Ceku
    implementation of UN-set standards.

    Significant results have been achieved over the past three months, the prime minister said, adding that Kosovo "is very much prepared to face the first stage of the post-status period". His government is working intensively to meet the standards, boost security and political stability, and finalise Kosovo's status, Ceku said.
    Opposition parties boycotted the presentation, however, because their proposal to give each member ten minutes for discussion was not approved.
    "Each MP should have a chance to speak, or make a comment on Ceku's report, at least ten minutes. For us, two hours for all discussions is very short," said Jakup Krasniqi, the head of the PDK parliamentary group.

    According to the prime minister, the boycott meant a lost opportunity to provide important feedback.

    "We are not interested in hearing only praise," Ceku said. "It is very important for us to hear their criticism, so we can know where we have failed and where we have had success," he said after the 13 July session.

    Citizens in Pristina, meanwhile, have their own suggestions for the Ceku administration. "The prime minister should report every month in the parliament on the government's work…His report should be more specific," says primary school teacher Ibush Jonuzi.

EU Ministers Support Kosovo Independence

KOSOVA
    European Union foreign ministers issued a clear signal of support July 17 for Kosovo’s impending independence, declaring the union would take a leading role within the international community as the province prepares to break away from Serbia.
    Kosova Map

    Meanwhile, Javier Solana, the European Union’s top foreign and security policy official, warned Israel “not to enter into the logic of war” in its conflict with the Hizbollah faction in Lebanon, saying the union would support any effort to expand the U.N. peacekeeping presence in the country.

    In a joint report to the foreign chiefs during their July 17 gathering here, Solana and Olli Rehn, European commissioner for enlargement, recommended three courses of action by the EU in support of Kosovo, currently administered by the United Nations. These call for the:
    • Creation of a double-hatted post to lead the international community’s work in Kosovo and to serve as the EU special representative to Kosovo.
    • The European Union will launch a new mission, under its security and defense policy, to help reform and strengthen Kosovo’s law enforcement and justice authorities.

Kosovo already lost to Serbia

KOSOVA
    Kosovo already lost to Serbia, despite PM Kostunica's efforts - Croatian paper

    By Marko Barisic in "Above the Belt" column entitled "The Kosovo knot" published by the Croatian newspaper Vjesnik on 14 July 2006
    Kosova Map

    Even though it is already virtually certain in the foremost international circles that Kosovo is going to receive conditional or compete independence by the end of the year, Serbian official circles have launched a diplomatic offensive in recent days in order to prevent it.

    Speaking in Washington after a meeting with US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Serbian Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica said that "the independence of that province is out of the question". Kostunica did not pass up the opportunity to warn that an independent Kosovo would result in "serious instability in the region".

    Even though he did not spell out in greater detail what kind of potential instability might ensue, it should not be doubted that, in that regard, he pointed with his finger for his US collocutors at Bosnia-Hercegovina, that is to say at the Serb Republic, whose authorities have already made threats about an independence referendum, and presumably also at Montenegro, in which those who supported the survival of the state union with Serbia make up almost half of the population (44.5 per cent), and at Serbia itself.
