Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey

Every year we commemorate the genocide, we expect that those who betrayed Srebrenica might this time ask for forgiveness from the survivors.

I didn't know Bob Dylan was black. And knew what we thought or felt. I'm not offended that he said what he said, but I'm a wee bit miffed that he felt he had the right to speak for blacks, Serbs and Croats with such authority.

If it bleeds, it leads. That's the slogan in the newspaper business. War, crime, disaster: these are big sellers. But the spread of tolerance is, for the most part, not newsworthy.

From the massacre of all its defenders, "Remember the Alamo" became the call to victory. Executing all the defenders of Srebrenica and expelling all its Bosniak residents was the tactic that was intended to also wipe away all of Bosnia & Herzegovina.

Reconciliation in the Balkans will only be possible through work being carried out by the region's civil society on the ground. Time will be needed in order to overcome the shock and to rediscover the energy necessary in building a shared memory of this painful past.

We bonded when we went to see Brazil play Cameroon during the '94 World Cup. It was one of the great days of my life. It made me understand something about two worlds that I didn't know anything about.

In enshrining the Church's divided World War II loyalties by canonizing the ambivalent pope at the time, the Church would be announcing to the world what it's made of. Pius should be neither demonized nor sanctified.

I found the Times' piece on Radovan Karadzic very disturbing -- not because it addressed his crimes, but because it chose to focus on an identity he assumed while he was living underground in Belgrade.
