He declared bankruptcy in The manifesto was banned by the government. However, he and his supporters were accused by the Communist authorities of reviving the "Young Muslims" organisation and of a conspiracy to set up an "Islamically pure" Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Also, many well known terrorists and terrorist organizations were allowed to freely bypass so many security checks. The same mass media also did not show Christian Serbs being beheaded or killed in other vile ways. Instead, the media focused on an overtly simplistic point of view and this applied to demonizing the Christian Serbs and ignoring the reality on the ground.
This applies to radical Islamists and international terrorists killing and slaughtering at random and in the full knowledge that their crimes would be ignored. A new multiethnic Kosovo: one out of hundreds of churches destroyed by the Kosovo separatist government that has declared independence.
This in itself links Islamists from Afghanistan and Pakistan, and a host of other nations, to both the war in Bosnia and September 11th. However, if this link is openly seen and debated, then how would this look in America and to people all over the world who have an interest in both the past conflict in Bosnia and the ongoing Islamization of Kosovo?
The journal, without identifying his nationality, reported that Abu Abdel Aziz spoke perfect Urdu and that he had spent extended periods in Kashmir.
I used to hear about it, but was hesitant about the purity and intention of this Jihad. One of those who came to our land presumably Saudi Arabia was Sheikh Dr. Abdallah Azzam. I heard him rallying the youth to come forth and join him to go to Afghanistan.
This was in — I think. I decided to go and check the matter for myself. This was the beginning of my journey with Jihad. Then the conquest of Kabul came. As to Arab Mujahideen in Bosnia , they do not have a separate battalion. There is a battalion for non-Bosnian fighters.
Arabs are a minority compared to those of the Mujahideen gathered from around the World. Militarily, it has a link to the Bosnian government under the general command of the Bosnian Armed Forces.
The general command of the Muslim forces wants to see results; it does not dictate strategy or action. Therefore, it is clear that many people within important circles in America are also alarmed by the real facts because Islamic terrorist networks are still operating in Bosnia and in other parts of the Balkans.
President George W. That is, the Iranians and other Muslim militants had long been active in Bosnia; the American green light was an important political signal to both Sarajevo and the militants that the United States was unable or unwilling to present an obstacle to those activities — and, to a certain extent, was willing to cooperate with them.
That network involves not only Iran but Brunei, Malaysia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan a key ally of Iran , and Turkey, together with front groups supposedly pursuing humanitarian and cultural activities. This is clearly an untold story or a story on the margins because images of Bosnia according to the majority of the mass media was about a democratic led Bosnian Muslim leadership which supported pluralism and the rule of law.
However, in reality you had elements within the Bosnian Muslim leadership, alongside the secret Clinton agenda, shaking hands with Islamic terrorists and killers who were intent on killing Christian Serbs in order to create an Islamic state. This commitment to actively support an Islamist agenda in the Balkans offers a plausible explanation why Bin Laden and Al Qaeda did not show up on the radar screen in Washington until late Iran and Al Qaeda established a beachhead in the centre of Europe.
At the same time, Islamic networks and organizations learnt how to play the media card and how to utilize the humanitarian network system in order to further the cause of radical Islam. Also, it is clear that intelligence agencies were involved in creating false passports and Islamists could freely travel between many continents.
Therefore, the Islamic revivalist movement was spreading from Afghanistan and Pakistan and moving to Europe and further afield. Some are in Bosnia, helping fellow Muslims fight the Christian Serbs. Between and of these veterans of the Afghan war, including non-Arab Muslims, are based in Zenica in Bosnia, where they are widely feared. The number of non-Bosnian Muslims in the military is estimated at between and 1, from a dozen countries in the Middle East.
From all accounts, they have fought with some distinction. Algerian leader Kamar Kharban, a veteran of the Afghanistan war, has visited Bosnia several times over the last two years. But many of the volunteers represent wealthy organizations or countries whose support the beleaguered Bosnians count on. Three Muslim volunteers, all Arabs carrying fake Pakistani passports, were shot dead by Bosnian military police at a roadblock near Sarajevo.
Three others were arrested by police for questioning in the murder. The Al-Kifah, or Struggle, Refugee Center in New York, which used to recruit and raise funds for Mujahedeen headed for Afghanistan, last year announced it was switching its operations to Bosnia.
These forces are closely associated with the Armed Islamist Movement AIM and Islamist international terrorism, and include the first organized deployment of Martyrdom Forces suicide terrorists , both veteran Arabs and newly trained Bosnians. The new regional center in Tehran will be responsible for Islamist activities training, equipping, operational support, etc. The former leader was instrumental in helping to spread radical Islam because in his book The Islamic Declaration it is clear that Izetbegovic desired an Islamic state and pictures show him smiling with radical Islamists who were bent on slitting the throats of Christians.
He who rises against Islam will reap nothing but hate and resistance. Under present conditions, this desire means a struggle for creating a great Islamic federation from Morocco to Indonesia, from the tropical Africa to the Central Asia.
The meeting chalked out the following objectives- a nationalities and frontiers on the basis of races was an un-Islamic perception; b to work in support of Muslims in all those parts of the world where action was being taken against them; c the Mujahideen of the newly formed Katiba Al-Mujahideen would carry out militant operations and fight in Kashmir to eliminate un-Islamic perceptions of nationalities and frontiers.
However, major players gave Islamists a free hand and it is clear that Islamists had a higher agenda and this agenda is still ongoing because Saudi funding continues to support radical Islam in Bosnia and throughout the Balkans. However, did events in Bosnia enable September 11th to take place?
This answer may be unanswerable or the answer may be known but kept secret because of the consequences? Despite this, it is clear that Islamists did obtain a beachhead in Europe whereby Islamic military camps and international Islamists could use Muslim dominated areas in Bosnia and then Kosovo.
It is also abundantly clear that fake passports were easily given and international systems were set up in order to move Islamists and terrorists to Bosnia and Kosovo. Also, it is clear that radical Islam is gaining ground today in Bosnia, Kosovo, and Macedonia. Therefore, given the past history and the terrorist free hand, you may just have another ticking time bomb which may erupt in the future?

Alija Izetbegovic - Islamic Declaration
Relevant discussion may be found on the talk page. Ulama , the class of learned scholars represent a degenerate Islam, which has turned religion into form without content, while modernists intellectuals try to popularise Westernised culture which is foreign to Islam and the intimate feelings of the broad masses. The Muslims masses therefore, lack the leaders and ideas which would awaken them from their lethargy, and there is a tragic distinction between the intelligentsia and ordinary people. It sees the need as a new brand of Muslim intellectuals, reborn in their own tradition. The meaning of this definition is that there is no institutional, social or legal system that can exist separately from people who are its actors, of which we could say, "This is an Islamic system. It is only so based on the people who make it.
Alija Izetbegovic. IAA is published 45 times a year, in Great Britain Disbelief in the West regarding Muslim fundamentalism in Bosnia stems from several causes, among which there is a pervasive, compulsive, complacency which holds that things can never be as bad as they seem, hence European officialdom refused to believe that Hitler meant what he wrote in Mein Kampf. The book was republished in in Sarajevo by Mala Muslimanska Biblioteka. Traditionally, Bosnians were among the most militant in the Muslim world.
