    Can you tell me of just one crime against the Serbs which your "police" managed to solve?

    I'm sorry, but I have to rely on sj who is the information guru of the B92 sites and he/she has never been wrong before due to his/her unparalleled information sources from Malaysia.

    Again, I ask you to reply to me about what I say but since you can't and are forced to use sj as a convenient excuse we have nothing to discuss.
    When you grow up or get smarter, do come back.

    So, I can't tell you one crime against the Serbs which their "police" managed to solve because there can't be crimes against Serbs because nobody DARES touch the Serbs according to sj because a powerful entity watches their backs LOL

  3. Is this the liberty which Kosovo was looking for?

    Yes, the liberty to inflict hardship on all non Albanians until they drive them out or worse. Why even the need to ask this question?

  4. Oh, no, that's not possible - according to sj nobody dares touch the Serbs because somebody very powerful is watching; and we know that sj is always correct due to his unparalelled sources of information.

  5. B92 and other serbian media outlets do their best to portray the police in Kosovo as an incompetent force which constantly bungles their investigations. They always seem to choose the worst quote possible and take it completely out of context in order to further the perception that the officials in Kosovo do not know what they are doing.

    Really? So why don't they start solving some crimes committed against Serbs and you won't have this problem?
    Seeing how your beloved KPS hasn't solved ONE crime committed against the Serbs we can safely say you are talking though your hat.

    No, the KPS knows well what they are doing: Downplaying ethnically motivated crime as deeds of 'playing kids', in case they are caught they immediately release perpetrators after a 'questioning' instead of keeping them in prison, and so on...

  9. This is just as likely to be the work of a drunken serb or bosnian. Tough economic times are being felt throughout the region and permeate all ethnicities and religions.

  10. Don't compare any sort of crime in Serbia or anywhere else in the world to this. This and much worse happens to Serbs there on daily basis but according to you and your "police" it is never ethnically motivated or done by Albanians.

  11. Well a hundred dinars is only between $1 and $2 dollars, so no biggy on the money front. I'm sure if Serbs are smart they wouldn't keep most all of any money there in the register, as it is too vulnerable in these times and is the first place thieves/burglars will go. Serbs need to learn - if they haven't already - to have most secret places to stash money and valuable - places people wouldn't think of but what they will remember well.

  12. Whoever committed such an act should be caught and castrated so that all the villagers can see. And shqipe in the old days going back to the ottoman days albanians didn't touch churches or even prior to the 1998-9 war. There was that common respect for holy sites that today is lacking because you have Wahabi's preaching hate to young albanians.

    Try doing that to any of our churches in Kosovo/a and even though we are a minority within a majority someone's head would roll.

    Serbs did a lot of bad things and some admit it and some still can't because they still don't see that they committed crimes against humanity because they still see albanians as second class citizens. So be it you can't force people to change their minds and each person has a right to their own views as long as it doesn't break the law.

    Albanians after Milosevic have a duty to protect minorities more so than they ever had to because now they are the ones in power. They can't act like the old Yugoslav regime or like Milosevic. We have to prove that we are better and through that commitment we can gain the K.Serbs trust. And not just theirs but the EU's trust.

    There is no difference between what a serb wants and what an albo wants and there are fewer differences in attitudes then there are similarities when it comes to all the ppl that live in Kosovo/a. People on these comments focus on the differences and in reality there aren't that many compared to the commonalities.

    It's a shame that Albanians are stooping to such acts and it has nothing to do with me being a christian but its a disgrace. Albanians never stooped to such lowliness. Whoever it was should be caught and castrated. Now if it was a Serb then the Serbs should apologize and make that Serb an example of what people are stooping to cause a rift and if it was an Albanian then the authorities should clamp down on such acts and make a public apology to the priest and reimburse him for the damages and make that person an example of what will happen to nationalist/fanatic wahabbi's if they continue to commit such acts.

    Neither serbs nor albanians understand the concept of democracy in the balkans so blame each other all you want. If a law is in place then all should be treated equally under the law with no bias due to ethnicity or origin.

    Peace to all and may God strike that horrible human being down for such a horrible act.Sorry but the cycle has to end and it starts with US and not the next person or the future generations.

  13. Those who did that do not have a God. A christian, a muslim or a jew should know how to respect the house of God. Those who desecrated the church cannot be named muslims or Albanians or whatever. Those are not human beings.

    And what are you doing in the US hm? You're a pretty bad Albanian not living in Shqiperia.

    So then you admit that it was ethnically motivated.

    Anyone with a brain can see that and yet now even your "police" are telling BS.

    Sure, go ahead, but it's not worth it... news agencies have other more important things to do than deal with every burglary that happens somewhere in the world. Not sure there is a big audience about that beside the Comm. Parrissons to justify their cost or reporting that information.

    the only thing you are wrong about is the "dreamstate". It's a big offense from you for Northern Kosovo Serbs to tell them that they are hallucinating and holding a referendum about dreams LOL

  27. God is wonderfull, don't you think? This is coming just after the Romanian Priest from Timok Valley, father Boian, was assaulted by the Serbian Customs Officer, after his Hollyness said he's a Serbian Citizen of Romanian Descent. Nevermind the attacks on the ACTUAL ORTODOX CHURCH BUILDING he put togheter for the Romanian Minority in the area...

    Let him who is without sin among you cast the first stone....

  28. So taking/stealing money from church is now "desecrating", too? Holy money?
    Holy..
    (Commentator, 4 March 2012 12:07)

    Priest Velja Stojković said the burglars broke the padlock on the door, the glass on an icon, a cross and the front door.

    As usual, Albanian trolls see only what they wont to see. Braking doors, glass, icons, crosses is “desecrating“. So sickening! Start taking responsibility for yourselves. Otherwise you will always be backwards society living in the black hole called “Kosova”.

    Glass inside was smashed & a cross on the door broken. But I guess this isn't enough for you to warrant the term "desecrate".

    It should be on fire or burnt to the ground, right? Do you have to pee on it too before you can call it that?

    Please tell us where you draw the line?

    Catch the burglars whoever they are Serbs, Albanians and lock them up for a long period of time.
