Only Cyprus (Out of all EU) Defends Kosovo For Serbia

'At talks among the EU's 27 foreign ministers, it has emerged that only Cyprus is insisting that Kosovo sovereignty must be backed by a UN resolution.' --(Cyprus insists UN only can mandate Kosovo independence --Dec 11, 2007 EuroNews)
The semi-official Cyprus News Agency quoted government spokesman Vassilis Palmas as saying that Cyprus, a European Union (EU) member state, will never consent to a secession and recognition of Kosovo.
"God forbid that Cyprus should agree, even if the rest of the EU decides to recognize the independence of Kosovo, even if there are reactions to our behavior," said the spokesman.

Jew Fixers And Jew Life In Serbia; Whats Up with All these Jews in Serbia Anyway?

Came across this fascinating article below, seems Jews have deep ties to Serbia, regardless of Jew frustrations with ever rising "anti-Semitism" Must have something to do with the propensity of Jews to pick certain countries at certain times as favorites??

I noticed recently that Israeli singers and Hanukkah parties are being held in Greek-dominated Astoria nightclubs too....Whats going on?

"Serb extremism" on rise, but Jewish life flourishing! "( from Jerusalem Post online)

Avram Israel, a Jew, is worshiped in this capital city. That may seem surprising in a country where an extreme right-wing, xenophobic party leads in voter support and neo-Nazi activity is rising. Yet when the smartly dressed Israel enters an overcrowded cafe across from the National Theater, he automatically is seated in the cordoned-off VIP section while diners smile at him and nod deferentially.

Serbians know Israel is Jewish because of his name, and they likely remember how eight years ago and for some time afterward Israel was the most popular man in Belgrade, according to polls. That's because for three months in the spring of 1999, the logistics expert was on television every night telling Serbs how to steer clear of the NATO bombs falling on Belgrade. The bombardment was meant to stop the late dictator Slobodan Milosevic from ridding the southernmost Serbian province of Kosovo of ethnic Albanians.

Now, on the eve of a Dec. 10 deadline to reach a deal on Kosovo's future, Israel is worried that Kosovo's plans to declare independence from Serbia in the coming months could bring further trials to this increasingly isolated southeastern European country and its 3,000 Jews. Serbia staunchly opposes Kosovo independence. Russia supports the Serb position, but most of Europe and the West are lining up behind the Kosovo Albanians' bid for an independent state. "Everything that is going on with Kosovo, like the US support of the Albanians, is contributing to the rise of ultranationalism in Serbia," Israel bemoaned. Serbia is in the throes of an intense wave of nationalism - a development that often precipitates anti-Semitism in Europe - fueled by the widespread belief that the "anti-Serb" West supports the Kosovo Albanians' plans. Still, even as extremists gain ground in Serbia, Jewish life in the country is flourishing thanks in large part to foreign donors. In the past three years, the main community building, which is attached to the synagogue, had its dilapidated main hall renovated into a bright social center with a grant from Italy's Jewish community.

A kosher kitchen opened with a donation from New Yorker Stephen Rosenberg, and a heating system was installed thanks to a loan from the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee. "Ten years ago we had no Shabbat dinner and almost no one came to synagogue," said Yitzhak Asiel, the 42-year-old chief rabbi of Serbia. "Now we get 100 people for Shabbat dinner in the new hall." During the 1990s, Jews fled the states of the former Yugoslavia as Serbia waged a war to hold on to the breakaway provinces that later become the nations of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro and Slovenia. After Milosevic was ousted in 2000 following NATO's bombing of the country a year earlier, Jews began trickling back to Belgrade. The 10.3 million citizens of Serbia are predominantly Orthodox Christian, with a Muslim minority of 239,000. "It's a miracle the community exists at all," Israel told JTA.

Along with being poorer than many of their Jewish neighbors, Serbian Jews have not had the communal property restitution or compensation agreements negotiated in most other post-communist countries to rejuvenate Jewish life after decades of neglect. But Belgrade Jews now have a secret weapon: Stefan Sablic, 31, a hip, ambitious Serb theater director whose funky performances of Pakistani, Israeli, Iranian, Balkan, Gypsy and Sephardic music - Serb Jews are mostly Sephardic - have drawn young people back to the community. Some 800 Jews live in Belgrade, with 300 between the ages of 16 and 27. The new communal facilities and foreign-funded programs have helped spur Serbia's younger Jews to become active members of the Jewish community, says Aleksandar Belevski, 21. Three years ago, JDC opened the Center for Youth Education in the Jewish community building and equipped it with computers.

Sablic's post-graduate cantorial studies in Israel also were supported by the JDC. "Many young people who were away during the Milosevic years are coming back from Israel and now they have someplace to meet," Belevski said. "We are maybe 20 to 30 people every Wednesday hanging out together." "We go for quality over quantity. I am very optimistic about our continuity." Asiel said the Jewish community is much more in the public eye than even two years ago. For instance, the conservative government of Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica and the Orthodox Church launched a daily TV program last year in which Asiel explains some aspect of Judaism. As for the influence of the far-right Serbian Radical Party, which received one-third of the vote in January parliamentary elections, Asiel is dismissive. "No other party is willing to form a government with them," he said. Alexandr Lebl, the head of a Jewish community group that monitors anti-Semitism in Serbia, said extremists target "Albanians, Bosnian Muslims and Hungarians, not really Jews." Jewish-Serb relations have been helped over the decades by a shared status as victims of the Nazis and Croatian fascists during World War II, when nearly the entire Jewish population of then-Yugoslavia was killed.

More recently, during the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s, local and foreign Jewish groups earned respect as neutral political brokers and as providers of food and medicine. However, many Serbs "think the NATO bombing of Belgrade was a conspiracy led by Jews like the U.S. secretary of state, Madeleine Albright," Lebl said. Fears of a growing neo-Nazi presence in Serbia surfaced last month after two neo-Nazi groups tried, albeit unsuccessfully, to march in Novi Sad on the birthday of Nazi leader Heinrich Himmler. Aleksander Necak, the president of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Serbia, said that even though "people will tell you there is no anti-Semitism in Serbia, it's not true." Necak described how vandals spray-painted a swastika on the door of a building outside Belgrade in September just as he was about to open an exhibition there on Jewish property. "We have 20 cases in the courts concerning slander against Jews," he said. Now Necak is worried about the impending loss of Kosovo, a province that comprises 15 percent of Serbia's territory. Since NATO's bombardment of Serbia in 1999 drove Serb forces out of Kosovo and brought an international peacekeeping force into the ethnically Albanian province, Kosovo in effect has been a U.N. protectorate, though officially part of Serbia.

The Kosovo Albanians are counting on the United States and most European Union states to grant it recognition even at the risk of infuriating Serbia, whose leaders believe Serbia is unfairly paying for the mistakes of Milosevic. "It will be very bad for Jews" when the US recognizes Kosovo, Necak said, "because for many, the US and Jews are more or less the same. My phone is already ringing, friends from the government are calling. 'We like you, what will you tell to the newspapers about Kosovo?' "

Declaration Of Society for Macedonian Studies; Macedonians Appeal To the Athens Incompetents To Not Surrender

Mantarkastag said...
Hello there!Society for Macedonian Studies has published an Historical Document which ,I think, you must read.Well I could say that we must all repost it on all the Hellenic blogs but thats it's not in my hand.Guten Tag und alles Gut aus Heimland Herr Nationalist!

Thessaloniki, November 26 2007

We the undersigned residents of the region of Greek Macedonia,have noted that the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia is systematically violating the letter and the spirit of the Interim Accord of 1995, the European acquis communautaire, relevant international agreements such as UN Security Council Resolutions 817/1993 and 845/1993, as well as resolutions of the European Union in Brussels (16.12.1991), Guimaraes (3.5.1992), Lisbon (27.6.1992) and Edinburgh (12.12.1992), and, more recently (2005), the European Council’s call far a ‘speedy solution’ of the name issue;is promoting irredentist propaganda at the expense of Greek Macedonia and disseminates hostile feelings to its youth through textbooks at all levels of its educational system;is monopolizing for expansionist purposes, the name ‘Macedonia’, although only a fraction of the Macedonian territory falls under its jurisdiction;is appropriating Greek history and cultural heritage;is turning Greece’s own generosity against her, employing the incalculable financial support which Greece has supplied in so many deliberately provoking the Greek people, by offending official statements and acts and, despite its international legal commitments, refuses even to discuss a name acceptable to both parties and to the international community.

We, the 2.5 million Greek Makedones of Greek Macedonia, demand that our government exercise its right to prevent the accession of FYROM to the European Union and NATO, until such time as FYROM consents to a mutually acceptable name.We also demand of our government to allow the Greek people to express their view on the final decision through a national referendum.Greece and her people and especially we, the Makedones of Greek Macedonia, strongly object to the usurpation of our cultural heritage, the violation of our human right to retain our own identity and our dignity.Therefore, we ask the international community to show its solidarity with the Greeks of Macedonia, who are European citizens. This solidarity, which is based on international and Community law, is also an obligation under articles 58 of the Constitutional Treaty of Europe, currently awaiting ratification. One of the criteria for accession of a country to the EU is respect for the values enshrined in articles 1 and 2. Specifically, article 2 requires (and this requirement is reiterated in article 61) respect for and protection of the dignity of other members. The values which fellow members are required to respect, include the names of states, their principles, symbols, history, traditions and so on.

We bring to your attention other instances in which attempts have been made to make improper use of a country's name, and where a change in name has been required; for example - the cases of Austria, Ireland, the United Kingdom, the ex-Yugoslavia/Serbia, the Czech Republic, Belarus, etc.We appeal to the international organizations and the governments of countries which may have recognized EYROM under its so-called "constitutional name", and to all interested parties, emphasizing that:- The name in itself would not represent the essence of the problem if it was not being used as a vehicle for irredentist claims against Greece, as has already been apparent in the actions of our neighbour to date in invoking a ‘Macedonian’ minority in Greek Macedonia.- The problem of the deliberate distortion of history, with which we are all familiar, is a provocation to the Greek people, leading to destabilization across the broader region of Southeastern Europe.We ask you most earnestly to avert the destabilization of the Balkan countries.Greece assists and protects the multi-ethnic population of our neighbour FYROM, where Greek businesses are in the vanguard of foreign investors. Greece has more at stake than any other country in the stability of the region.You can be confident that your support for the Greeks of Macedonia is at the same time an indication of solidarity with the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, and, of course, with our shared European ideals.On the basis of the fundamental principles enshrined in UN and EU documents, we request your support for a solution which will not lead to the appropriation of Greek identity and will not entail possible territorial claims.
