    Persecution of Kosovo Christians Said to Reveal Larger Threat

    (CNSNews.com) - International intervention to halt the persecution of Christians in Kosovo is a "complete failure," according to a former diplomat and other political analysts who briefed Capitol Hill staff late last week, pointing to the destruction of 150 churches and the simultaneous construction of 200 mosques.

    Cybercast News Service obtained video of the burning and desecrating of the churches by ethnic Albanians, most of them Muslim. See Video

    The new mosques are funded by "Wahhabist nations," the diplomats said, raising the specter of radical Islam incubating on the doorstep of Europe in a province rife with illegal arms and narcotics trafficking.

    The religious persecution is also part of a political strategy of violence, which if rewarded in the granting of independence to Kosovo, could trigger similar violent secessionist movements throughout neighboring states and countries, they warned.

    Unfolding events in Kosovo have already sent shock waves to as far away as China, which has now expressed concern to the U.S. over possible copycat attempts at secession in its predominantly Muslim Xinjiang Province.

    Kosovo, an international protectorate administered by the United Nations, is part of Serbia and Montenegro, but the legal authority of the region is the U.N. Interim Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK).

    "Peterson and Djurovski both said many of the new mosques funded by Saudi and Iranian funds are currently empty, but reflect plans to indoctrinate residents with the radical Wahhabist form of Islam. The new mosques carry plaques acknowledging funding from Saudi Arabia, Iran and the United Arab Emirates, said Grieboski. "
    "
    The Wahhabists are at it again.
    To quote one disgruntled Moslim native to former Yugoslavia:" Yugoslavian Moslims drink alcohol and never visit a mosque!".
    Mosques in Yugoslavia used to have the same significance that medieval churches have in the rest of Europe. Beautiful old buildings which are as much tourist attractions as they are religious sites. Now we see a new breed of mosques in Kosovo, ugly concrete contraptions that one is actually supposed to use.

    I'm writing this post from Sarajevo, Bosnia. There is a very large Muslim population here as well. The Wahhabis have started moving here and are trying to radicalize the Bosniaks (Bosnian Muslims). The Bosniaks are for the most part what you might call backslidden Muslims. They smoke and drink and party like any other lost person. Middle Eastern countries have spent a great deal of money rebuilding mosques in Bosnia since the war ended in 1995. The Wahhabis, sadly, are having some success in converting the locals.
