1. Figures he would support the Islamist's. And the Serbs and Croats are expected to live in the same country with this nutcase...

  2. Why doesn't B92 have any news about the arrest of Bosnian Muslim, Edin Sakoc, living in the U.S., accused of raping and murdering Serb civilians in July 1992?

  3. Is this another csae of the pot calling the kettle black ?? This individual wouldn't recognise democrady if it bit him on the backside. As for Morsi he's just another middle eastern zealot living in the Middle Ages. The Egyptian people are well rid of him as would be the poor Bosniaks be if Izdtbegovic and his ilk did a disappearing act as well.

  4. I think it would be useful to split this issue into two questions. 1) Should Morsi have been allowed to continue in office? 2) Have the army/security apparatus overreacted to the protests from his supporters? I agree entirely with Bakir that violence should end and tend to believe that it has been over the top from the new 'regime'. However, I agree entirely with Comm Parison about the nature of Morsi's time in office. You cannot use democracy to get rid of democracy. The Muslim Brotherhood mantra was 'one person, one vote, one time' meaning that once democracy had been used to bring them to power it was no longer needed. Erdogan in Turkey, who has done many good things with regard to the economy, said that democracy was a train that you left when it reached the station, a simlar sentiment to the MB. Whether it is the MB in Egypt or Lushenko in Belarus or Putin in Russia, the principle is the same; democracy is more than simply 'free and fair elections'. It is about a range of freedoms; association, speech, religion, freedom from persecution on the basis on gender, sexual orientation, membership of an ethnic group and so on ad nauseum. The foregoing are sadly lacking in many countries that claim to be democratic and it is this that needs to be addressed. Could the army have reasonably sat back in Egypt and watched the MB whittle away the very democratic system that brought them to power, removing rights for women and religious minorities along the way? They felt not; I agree.

  5. Morsi started behaving like a dictator. Thankfully, he was removed.And, if he truly wants peace the he should call on his supporters to stop the violence.

  6. Bakir is up set because the same type of people like him and his father wanted impose Sharia law on Egypt! Just like Bakir and his old man wanted to in Bosnia, thankfully it never happened in both country's! Remember Bakir you lot in Sarajevo are surrounded on all sides, by the people you tried to impose Sharia law and enslaved and raped for over 500 years with your so called brother Turks! Who lets face it have done nothing for you since the days of the Ottomans, where was they in the Bosnia civil war?! No where to be seen! Yet Serbs where supported by Greeks, Bulgarians, Russians, Ukrainians, Armenians! REMEMBER BROTHERHOOD IS STRONGER THEN MASTER AND SLAVE!

  7. "In Egypt, as in all other countries where the citizens want democracy, the system must be arranged in a way that guarantees human rights, civil freedoms, fair elections and democratic rule. The overthrow of democratically elected officials, arrests and killing of members of some political parties, violence and threat of armed force must end," Izetbegoviĉ was quoted as saying

    The problem in Egypt was: The democratically(very questionable) elected government under Morsi didn't care at all about basic human rights, civil freedoms, fair elections and democratic rule. Instead, they wanted to install a Sharia based system and constitution, they were replacing state officials and independent judges with some Muslim brother stooges, and so on. It's a misunderstanding that an elected government can do as they please, without compromise.
