1. Is this really a news worthy story? Some fool climbed on a building and took down a flag. Whether it was Albanian or Serbian its a petty crime. Sure, its a petty crime, but it doesn't justify remaining in custody for 8 days! Classic Serbian oppression. The punishment does not fit the crime as usual.

    This is not easy to dispute. However you should mention, Hungarians are not universally loved by all their neighbirs... and the undisputed world champions if it is about "victim mentality".

    I am not a great pro-Albanian champion, but in person I got far more disturbing encounters with Hungarians lately than with anyone else, combined. That involves usually activities regarded as more-less criminal in any other country (cheating, scam, etc) but pretty common here. As for political life... just say "A Nemzet Orbánca", that's good enough. Maybe their desperation is the background, but lately I am not enjoying the people of BP at all.

    At least, so far not a single Albanian did punch my nose for driving slow, that happened with me 2007 in Kékgolyó utca of BP. And the behavior on the freeways I can describe here only as "road rage" or "feeway hooliganism". It looks, like police does not care less.

    I just give you a link for external use.

    I clarify you that in Vilayet was included not only today Kosova but part of today Serbia and Macedonia where live Slavic people that you will find in official data there. So you understand that today Kosova was 90% Albanian at that time.

  6. Dear Radek. Congratulations, you have won again the first prize for hate speech. However, I know all this comes from the inborn inferiority complex you feel against one of the oldest nations in Europe and definitely the one with cultural superiority in the region.

    2.Do you know why we call it “flag day”, because we Albanian of Republic of Albania don’t want to call it “Independence Day” since 1912 where Kosova and other land of Albanians were not independent? Today we are near our goal that all Albanians in Balkan live free and with their identity in their homes.
    (dori tirana, 30 November 2011 23:28)

    Define Free?

    Ethnically pure Kosovo? or shall i say Illyrian?

    Other Land of Albanians

    A study done in 1871 by Austrian colonel Peter Kukulj[29] for the internal use of the Austro-Hungarian army showed that the mutesarifluk of Prizren (corresponding largely to present-day Kosovo) had some 500,000 inhabitants, of which:

    318,000 Serbs (64%),
    161,000 Albanians (32%),
    10,000 Roma (Gypsies) and Circassians
    2,000 Turks

    Mate Albanian Lands? kosovo is 95% becuase of ethnic cleansing..

    Albanians in Kosovo and north western are religous extremists using the false Illyrian link in order to brainwash there children into hating there neighbours...

    With statistics like the above, why hate the serbs, the Albanians would do the same given the same position...

  8. This guy is hungarian and knowing that among 10 countries which joined EU in 2004 Hungary is by far the biggest loser
    (radek, 30 November 2011 19:18)

    Yeah, he is. Hungarian from Kosovo, actually as far as I know. Being Hungarian does not mean much. For instance I am - but from two other countries. Size maybe does matter, each of these countries has the power to annihilate the entitre Solar System. One begins with the letter "U", the other with the letter "R".

    So what, I am fine with that, as long as the Solar System is in one piece and I am let in peace, I am OK.

    But unlike Hruz I do not enjoy the sight of Orbángutang... if I wake up on a day with my American or Russian feet first, Orbángutang looks like a pathetic loser and the entire Hungary like a heap with many ants running around. To understand that does not hurt to spend a few (or many) years in countries where you need at least four days to cross by car. Or a week. Than it looks different. Do you speak in the family Hungarian or not is a different story.

    And by the way: while Budapestians are probably the meanest people on the planet Earth... just travel 10 km and get a very different experience. ;)

    Every time I have to visit BP my stomach is upside down. But not here where I am. To bad, MO has a huge head and that head sux horribly. The solution: either say good-bye to Hungary or move outside of Budapest. That city is insane.

    I always feel like laughing when some outsiders let us say mongols try to decide what is european and what not.It is as if a butcher tried to decide who should play for the football national team.Otherwise in most european countries at least those who still have pride such acts are taken quite seriously.Once again the stress is on the words pride and dignity.All we know there is an artificial nation which has nothing to do with these two words.A nation which was Hitler's last shoepolisher and most cruel butcher,a nation which just some years later with their leader Rakosi Stalin's best student was the most hard line communist in the world,people who are currently NATO's most eager canon foders(and a century ago played a very similar role in Habsburg army).Everybody's doormat and eternal winbags.Even in 1968 when they entered Czechoslovakia
    at the first call from soviets as opposed to many other warsaw packt counties they behaved much more cruely than even the soviets themselves.
    That is the reason why on 4th of june every sound and jusice loving person in Carpatian basin and around opens a bottle of wine and celebrates the day when beast was hit.Cheers.And tell your PM to behave finally like a European and create european laws with that 2 thirds in that Yurta council because for the time being according to most european political experts he behaves with his buddies as if they were somewhere in norther Pakistan or the Gobbi desert.(looking at your PMs photo it is even not so strange)

There isn't an Albanian alive who doesn't drool at the mere sight of a black bird on a red cloth.
