Taner Akcam is wrong on Milosevic

The following is my response to an article by Taner Akcam at ArmenianWeekly that the latter would not post. They always spike that which is not politically correct in their multicultural world view, i.e., they worship at the Western altar of self hatred and carry water for the Islamic jihad without being conscious of it.

I have tremendous admiration for Taner Akcam, a Turkish man, for going where his detailed research and documentation took him, to speaking out on the historical truth of the Turks' Genocide of the Armenians. But on Milosevic being behind mass murder or crimes in Bosnia, Kosovo, or Croatia, Mr Akcam is not correct. Most of my fellow Armenians think and believe as Mr Akcam does on Milosevic or the Serbs without knowing any more than what they have read in the newspapers or heard on TV.

Here is one example among thousands to show how most have been misled. Roy Gutman won a Pulitzer Prize for reporting that Serbian soldiers had a camp (he was never there) holding several thousand Muslim women that were being raped. This was immediately front page news in Europe and the US. Several reporters in Bosnia decided to find that Serbian rape camp. The locals said yes, there were several thousand Muslim women being raped. As the reporters neared the site the locals there said there were hundreds of Muslim women being raped. When they arrived at the site there was no rape camp. The reporters found that four women had been raped. They filed reports on what they found but the networks spiked the reports. There are still books in stores that still talk about those terrible Serbs running that rape camp that never existed.

The one example above does not refer to Milosevic. Here I will only mention that Taner Akcam, like many others, makes the accusation that Milosevic was behind crimes against humanity in Croatia but the reality is that the Croatians committed the largest act of ethnic cleansing and mass murder in all the wars in Yugoslavia in the 1990’s when they expelled 250,000 Serbs from the Krajina. So what are the crimes of Milosevic in Croatia?

There are thousands more examples. Look for yourself, read the reports of UN personnel on the ground then read what the UN reported out of NY, read what reporters wrote that were eye witnesses then read what the networks reported; you will be shocked. You will be asking yourself how did reports X turn into reports Y?

By this point I am sure there is much hand wringing and the Armenians are asking how is this important to us. Remember the time in the 1990’s when Armenians were being murdered in Baku and Nagorno-Karabakh kicked out Azerbaijan? Do you remember what CNN was reporting? It was reporting that Armenians were mass murdering Muslims. Yes, this is correct, everyone seems or wants to forget. Azerbaijan was part of the conduit of the mujahideen from Muslim countries to jihad against the Christians of Bosnia, Kosovo, and Nagorno-Karabakh. The handlers of the mujahideen in Bosnia had seen how the gullible Western media would run any pro-Muslim report no matter how incredible. CNN approached the war over Nagorno-Karabakh with the same mentality and it’s no surprise that Azeri Muslims obliged. By this time I knew their modus operandi and expected the worse for Nagorno-Karabakh. But something happened that I didn’t expect. Armenians threatened CNN with extreme violence if their campaign of lies didn’t stop, and out of fear CNN did stop. To see Armenians stop that juggernaut Western lying machine in the service of the jihad made me a prouder Armenian. But most Armenians have forgotten or never knew the story.

Other than this one disagreement with Taner Akcam, who I have met in Oakland, I admire him and consider him a brave man.

Actually in the case of Nagorno-Karabakh just like in Chechnya and Bosnia western intelligence and there Saudi Afghan era terrorist front NGO’s were involved were involved in transferring foreign fighters to fight on the Azeri side so Azerbaijan would be in a position of power in the region as the western oil vassal in the region to bypass Russia.

In fact MI6 orchestrated the coups in Azerbaijan in 93 to put the current regime in power.

Azerbaijan oil consortium dominated with Rothschild, western intelligence and Saudi terrorist oil companies.


Azerbaijan International Operating Company (AIOC) is a consortium comprised of 11 international oil companies from seven countries which are in the process of developing the largest known offshore oil fields in the Azerbaijan Section of the Caspian Sea (Azeri, Chirag and the deepwater section of Gunashli). The work is being done with the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR).

Each issue has a regular feature of AIOC's activities highlighting new developments and trends. The oil companies include: British Petroleum (UK), Amoco (USA), Unocal (USA), LUKoil (Russia), Statoil (Norway), Exxon (USA), Turkish Petroleum (Turkey), Pennzoil (USA), ITOCHU (Japan), Ramco (UK), and Delta Nimir Khazar (Saudi Arabia).

"With Khalid bin Mahfouz, Nimir Petroleum engaged in a relationship with the Taliban regime in or about 1994. Nimir agreed to partner with the Saudi Delta Oil Company, by forming a joint-venture known as Delta Nimir Khazar Limited. Soon after, due to Nimir and Khalid bin Mahfouz influence, an agreement was reached between a consortium of oil companies and the Taliban. Nimirs efforts to lobby for the consortium to reach an agreement with the Taliban regime included a meeting in November 1997 with a Taliban delegation to Texas.”

The is was the case of Enaam Arnaout who ran the Benevolence International Foundation and indicted in the US for supporting “Al-Qaeda” senior role of transferring funds and equipment to Chechen Mujahedeen and ran weapons convoy to Bosnian militants in Croatia who Croatian intelligence arrested and jailed in 93.
EA writing to US Senator Carl Moseley Braun for diplomatic assistance only to escape somehow and acting with Hezb-e-Islami to send foreign fighters to fight on Azeri side against Armenian forces.

I think my earlier comment got garbled.

Here's what I was trying to say:

Thanks very much for taking your courageous stand on behalf of the Serbs!

You can find much more material regarding the Serbs at Julia Gorin's blog. She is Jewish and fully understands that we are all in the same boat when it comes to the jihad.

I also am the founder and primary admin of a counterjihad blog, namely 1389 Blog. It covers the counterjihad in general, particularly free speech for the counterjihad, as well as persecution of Christians, Orthodox Christianity, and various aspects of the North American political scene as it pertains to foreign policy.

Also, you might like to visit 2.0: The Blogmocracy - it's another conservative team blog/forum that staunchly supports the Serbs and the Jews. Subject matter primarily has to do with US politics in general, including the counterjihad. If you want to comment, you will need to register, but registration is open and takes just a few minutes.
