Walls and Bosnia 24 Years After?

This is not just about Bosnia but rather the reactionary appeal of nationalism, populism and manifestations of walls, physical and psychological.

An Insult to Florence Hartmann -- And to International Justice

Bernard-Henri Lévy | Posted 03.30.2016 | Home
Bernard-Henri Lévy

I want to express my anger at the shameful images that have circulated widely on the Web (though for once not widely enough) of a manhandled journalist, her glasses ripped off, dragged away by police, veritably kidnapped, and stashed in a jail that in principle is reserved for the dregs of humanity.

Genocide by 'Joint Criminal Enterprise'

Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey | Posted 03.25.2016 | Home
Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey

The "Genocide Convention," to which the U.S. is party, carries with it the affirmative obligation to confront the crime while still ongoing and not just to punish the perpetrators after the fact.

As a Child Who Grew Up in Wartime Sarajevo, I Won't Atone for Karadzic's Sins

Jana Jevtic

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina -- The idea of atoning for crimes that Karadzic was found guilty of sends shivers down my spine and makes me feel as alienated as I had felt some 20 years ago -- as a child born of mixed marriage growing up in wartime Sarajevo.

Dayton Accords Defined the Past Not the Future?

Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey

Two decades after the Dayton Accords, the question is not about what happened during the three weeks of negotiations, but why is Bosnia & Herzegovina ("BiH") still defined by and stuck in that period and the conflict that it ended.

Srebrenica Must Be a Universal Lesson

Sasa Milosevic | Posted 07.06.2016 | Home
Sasa Milosevic

The septicemia of nationalism must be cured by embracing clear-headedness, and the process of reconciliation. If not, Serbian victims will be killed once again without knives and bullets, but with political and judicial silence instead.

Who Will Get Sold Out at Syria Peace Talks?

Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey | Posted 03.22.2014 | Home
Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey

All individual leaders -- and, for that matter, ideologies -- are expendable. No global or regional power or current leader should be allowed to claim as their own a shared future that first belongs to all Syria's citizens. That would be a sell-out!

"Justice May Be Slow but It Is Inevitable"

Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey | Posted 06.15.2013 | Home
Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey

Nikolić's and Jeremić's promotion of historical revisionism that denies genocide and accentuates ethnic chauvinism negates what many in Washington and Brussels may wishfully want to see as a more politically progressive Serbia.

Rebecca Tinsley | Posted 07.08.2012 | Home
Rebecca Tinsley

On the twentieth anniversary of the start of the Bosnian war we should feel anger and shame because 'the international order' is still ignoring those warning signs when they occur. We should also acknowledge the human consequences of the West's failure in Bosnia.

I suppose I should be jumping for joy now that Mladic is in custody, but it's not that simple. His crimes are not a footnote in the history books for me. They are etched in the fabric of my soul and those of many of my friends.

Ejup Ganic Case Distracts World From Real War Crimes

Diana Jenkins | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home
Diana Jenkins

The politically motivated allegations against Dr. Ganic represent a broader campaign by ultra-nationalist groups within Serbia to excuse, explain and outright deny Bosnian genocide. It was for this reason I posted his $300,000 bail.

Events in the Balkans, unlike those in Iraq, appeared as though they were the one area where the Western elites could rally around the idea that they were the good guys, facing down "evil in our time."
