Karadzic is now in a prison in the Hague and the whole apparatus of repression of this illegal NATO Court is ranged against him.
I ask the question here: Who were the Serbs fighting in Bosnia?
Were these MODERATE Muslims who they were forced to fight? Or were they extremists?
This article will go partly to answer that: This information has been put together by the excellent Carl Savich on the equally excellent www.Serbianna.com site:

Ali Ahmed Ali Hamad, an Al-Qaeda commander who was part of the Bosnian Muslim Army during the 1992-1995 civil, testified under oath at the war crimes trial of Bosnian Muslim military commander Rasim Delic that the Bosnian Muslim Government of Alija Izetnegovic had knowledge of Al-Qaeda war crimes against Bosnian Serb civilians and POWs but did nothing to prevent or punish them.
Most importantly, Hamad confirmed under oath in a court of law that Al-Qaeda was part of the Bosnian Muslim military forces. This is a bombshell. Yet this admission and conclusive and unmistakeable proof of the Al-Qaeda presence in Bosnia was censored and suppressed in the U.S. and Western media. The mainstream media in the U.S. deleted it and censored it. Nevertheless, this testimony offers proof that Al-Qaeda was part of Alija Izetbegovic’s Bosnian Muslim Army.
In sworn testimony before the ICTY war crimes trial in Sarajevo, Ali Hamad testified that, “as far as he knews”, the Bosnian Muslim Army never took measures to punish the Al-Qaeda troops in the Bosnian Muslim Army or any of the other Afghan-Arab mujahedeen. Moreover, he testified that the Bosnian Muslim military and political leadership did nothing to prevent Al-Qaeda and mujahedeen forces from committing war crimes against Serbian and Croatian civilians and POWs in Bosnia. These war crimes included ritual beheadings of Bosnian Serb civilians and POWs, decapitations, torture, circumcisions, and mass executions of Bosnian Serb POWs. Specifically, 60 Bosnian Serb POWs were tortured and murdered and three Bosnian Serb women were raped by Bosnian Muslim troops.
“It is impossible that the Army could not stop a small group of Mujaheeds. I am referring to the military and political leadership. We were accepted here in Bosnia although we did many bad things.”
Ali Hamad conceded that Al-Qaeda and mujahedeen troops in the Bosnian Muslim Army rejected the Geneva Convention on the Laws and Practices of Warfare because he “was not interested in it at the time”, be relied on Al-Qaeda tactics developed in Afghanistan:
“In the course of our training in Afghanistan, we rejected all those regulations. We pronounced them as ‘tagut‘ regulations, which means they contradicted Islam. Al-Qaeda had its own rules that were contradictory to these regulations.”
Ali Hamad testified at the United Nations War Crime trial that the Al-Qaeda and mujahedeen forces in the Bosnian Muslim Army were financed by a Saudi Arabian charity, the Saudi High Commission for Relief of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The Phildaelphia Inquirer has reported that he will be a witness in a civil suit brought against Saudi Arabian charities. The civil case is “Re terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. These Saudi Arabian charity fronts and other Islamic charities are sued for complicity and support for the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York City.
Not only is this conclusive proof of the Al-Qaeda role in the Bosnian civil war censored and suppressed in the U.S. media. The connection of Bosnia to 9/11 is also covered-up and censored in the U.S. and Western press.
The Bosnia and 9/11 Connection: Khalid Al-Mihdhar and Nawal Al-Hazmi (above) from Saudi Arabia organized and participated in the 9/11 attacks. They were the suicide hijackers who crashed American Airlines flight 77 into the Pentagon, killing all 64 persons on the plane and 125 in the Pentagon. They were both veterans of the Bosnian Muslim Army who possessed Bosnian passports issued by the Alija Izetbegovic Government.
