Muslims Cut Off Water Supply To Serbians

Today on the Internet:

August 25, 2008 – 1:49 pm
Restrictions of the regional waterworks that is under control by Kosovo Albanian separatists has left the Kosovo Serb enclaves in Gracanica, Susica and Novi Badovac where some households have been without drinking water for 20 days.

Serbian Ministry for Kosovo-Metohija says that it is following the situation and that is has managed to increase deliveries of water for technical use but not for drinking.

Documents are being gathered that will provide financing so that the water problem can be permanently solved.

Suspicious of this, I went searching and found another link which purports to be an English translation of from International Serbia Radio, but other than that, there is virtually no mention of this anywhere.

Can you imagine the outcry if Israel cut off water to Gaza for 20 days? It would be world-wide front page headlines.

When Moslems do it, everyone yawns. When Israelis do it, everyone screams bloody murder. I guess we should be pleased--the world apparently expects Moslems to act like barbarians and for Jews to 'play nice' like civilized folks, even when we're being bombed and blown up by the barbarians.

I'm just a little sick of the double-standard. I'm not advocating that we act like barbarians--just that the world hold the Moslems to the standards the rest of civilization is expected to follow.

One reason for the yawn is that this sounds like a typical product of Serbian nationalist propaganda. During and since their attempt at genocide, Serb extremists have sought to portray their war as part of a worldwide Christian crusade against a sinister Muslim threat. Thus the Bosnians are always called "Muslims." Given that this ostensible news report falls into that pattern, I'd check it out very carefully before publicizing it or drawing any conclusions from it.

Added you to our blogroll!

I wondered....as I said, I found it odd that I could only find this on two sites, both Serbian, and nowhere else....so, my bad. Two INDEPENDENT corroborations are the prerequisite for publication--I'll be more stringent next time.

I'm on your blogroll? I'm honored, really! Thanks!
