1. Israel does not recognize Kosovo due to its occupation of Palestine and Gaza. The terrorism rhetoric is a total lie. Europe, hundred years ago was full of anti-semitism and now the same Europe is full of Anti-Palestine. Europe has not learnt anything but moved their hatred from European Jews to Palestinians. Israel and Europe are taking revenge of old European antisemitism from Palestinians. Israel is its own biggest enemy. Leave Palestine and let the Palestinian refugees who were expelled from Israel in 1948, and you will see the doors of 57 countries and 1 billion plus people (Muslims of course) opening their doors to you. But Israel's old hatred for Non-Jews ("We are God's Chosen People" and "Palestine is our Promised Land") is continuing this terrorism. In WW2, Nazis exterminated European Jews and the sons of those Jews are exterminating the Native Non-Jews of Palestine. What Europe and Nazis did to European Jews was wrong but what Israelis are doing, is the same.They are taking revenge of the Goliath and the Palestinians (Filistines) who lived and fought 4,000 years ago with the Jews, when Abraham was expelled from Iraq (Babylon) and he told his followers to settle in Palestine (Promised Land). Serbian and Anti-Muslim readers are happy to see the comments of the Israeli Ambassador, but you are Naive and Biased. The key to peace is in Israel's hands but more hawks run Israel than doves. Plus the War Industry profits as long as war happens.

  2. HISTORY:
    Albania was the only European country occupied by the Axis powers of World War II that ended World War II with a larger Jewish population than before the War. Not only did the Albanians protect their own Jews, but they provided refuge for Jews from neighboring countries. The Albanians refused to comply and hand over lists of Jews. Instead they provided the Jewish families with forged documents and helped them disperse in the Albanian population. Some 1,200 Jewish residents and refugees from other Balkan countries were hidden by Albanian families during World War II, according to official records.
    In 1999, Israel took in Kosovar Albanian refugees from the Kosovo War, providing them with medical care, food and accommodation.

    PRESENT:
    Israel and some other countries that ain't recognize Republic of Kosova yet have inner problems with different minorities and that doesnt mean they dont recognize it because they like Serbia more or Kosova less. Its just a diplomacy they have to follow which means in a near future things can change. Albanians and Israel relations are perfect and indeed each year representatives from Albania are invited as special guests in the Holocaust memorial day as a good sign of things we did by helping jewish people in their most difficult time.

    FUTURE:
    A lot of paranoia about albanians in here. Take a breath, life goes on, there is air for all of us. working together is better than finding ways to hate each-other!

  3. Thank you People of Israel and Thank You Madam Ambassador. I am very grateful for this act of friendship. I deeply regret for the missed opportunities after WWII (almost forty years) when then Yugoslavian dictator JBT did not allowed diplomatic relationship in friendship between us Jews and Serbs. Israeli people must enjoy exclusivity in Serbia and must become (in my humble opinion) exclusive friends of Serbian people. Failed policies of JBT and his failed political investments in the Middle East brought on us wrath of civil war and radical Islam. Brutal war raged between brothers of different religion poised with investments of Middle East dictatorial governments.
    Thank you again Madam Ambassador.
    Sincerely

  4. The Jewish people - inside and outside of Israel alike - know perfectly well who was on their side in the Balkans during the WW2 and who was sending them to Auschwitz, Treblinka and Dachau.

  7. Paul : Palestinian nationalism has never been anything than an Islam inspired anti-semitic cult.

    Jews had never lived in those lands you know. At least 70 years of Israel gave zero evidence that any of the Bible events had ever happened there. It's an open information. Read about the history of the conflict to feel shame for what you wrote. Terror was brought to Palestine by the young German Jews who blew up two mule vagons in a bazar in 1947. Meanwhile the 130 000 men and women strong Jewish army never moved a finger to join WW2. By the way it was Napoleon who appointed that Jerusalem will be the El Quds Palestinian village in 1798.

  9. Anyone who does not see that Palestinian nationalism is dead is living in the past. Everyone knows now and can see it too. Palestinian nationalism has never been anything than an Islam inspired anti-semitic cult. It has become so infused with European bleeding hearts that even the Muslims behind it are becoming sick of the whole anti-colonialist rhetoric still being propped up like it was the eighties or something.

    The other Muslim fraud in Kosovo* is also starting to wear very thin.

  10. Albanians are working via various diplomatic channels when it comes to the inevitiable question of a Palestinian State.
    (Palestinian Statehood, 30 September 2016 11:43)

    Palestine does not need any help from Albanians. Palestinians and the State of Palestine are both light years ahead of anything the bastard children of Skenderbeg have to offer.

  11. Albanians have voted and will vote pro Israel and against Palestine.
    Israel soon or later will recognize Kosovo(in fact they have exchanged parliamentary visits) and can not do it now,because of the threats of Palestinians which is Russian lapdog in Middle East.

  12. Thank you Israel. And we are sorry for Serbia's government voting in favor of Palestinian membership in the UN two years ago. Serbia has to do a better job at honoring its friends. But also remember that Bosnia was going to do the same, but the Serb Republic RS vetoed such a move because ties between Israel and RS are stronger than with Serbia. Long live Israel.
