For years I have been saying it: Most Americans still don’t know or understand the implications of America’s support of the jihad in Europe, but that’s exactly what Bill Clinton’s intervention in the Balkans was. Clinton sent American soldiers to fight alongside Bosnian mujahedeen against the Serb Christians in the Bosnia war. The Democrats aligned with the jihad then and the Democrats align with the jihad now, despite the thousands of Americans slaughtered at their hand.
Here is yet more of the unending poisonous yield of Clinton’s vicious ill-conceived war. I continue to take heat for my support of the Serbs (Christians) in Clinton’s Bosnian misadventure. We were on the wrong side in that war, and the consequences of Clinton’s perfidy continue to reverberate in that region. I’ve been excoriated for saying this — but now even the BBC has to admit that the position I have taken was right all along, although of course they’d rather take the gaspipe than admit that their stance on Bosnia (and on me) has been drastically wrongheaded all these years.
“Bosnia: The cradle of modern jihadism?,” by Mark Urban, BBC, 2 July 2015
Back in the 1990s something happened in central Bosnia-Herzegovina that inspired people to this day and helps explain why that country now has more men fighting in Syria and Iraq (over 300), as a proportion of its population, than most in Europe.
The formation of a “Mujahideen Battalion” in 1992, composed mainly of Arab volunteers in central Bosnia, was a landmark. Today the dynamic of jihad has been reversed and it is Bosnians who are travelling to Arab lands.
“There is a war between the West and Islam,” says Aimen Dean, who, as a young Saudi Arabian volunteer, travelled to fight in central Bosnia in 1994. “Bosnia gave the modern jihadist movement that narrative. It is the cradle.”
Conventional wisdom holds that it was the fight against the Soviet Union’s occupation of Afghanistan in the 1980s that created the modern notion of jihad or “holy war”. Aimen Dean’s point is that the West and the Salafists (or adherents to a strict form of Islam going back to observance in the Middle Ages) were on the same side in Afghanistan, but became enemies in Bosnia.
At first, in 1992, it was just a few dozen militants who went to defend their co-religionists in Bosnia, as Serbian paramilitaries drove them from their homes in the west and east of the country. But it was in early 1993, when it became a three-way fight against Catholic Croatians as well as the Serbs, that the Mujahideen Battalion swelled to the hundreds and started to hunt non-believers more actively.
This article is spot on.
How much proof do Americans need before they say the Clintons, all of them are evil as hell and need put down.
The Clintons were treasonous scum long before OScumBag came along.
They all should stand next to each other on the same gallows.

Thank you Dee for clarifying this in my mind: I really never understood the Bosnian and Serbian conflict: but this I know: the CLINTON'S ARE SLIME, and everything that is WRONG with our nation!
Due to Bill Clinton's along with Al Gore's presidency we're on the path we've been on since the early 1990's. His presidency was the worst thing to happen to the country, while Gore went global warming back then and the rest of the democrats/liberal moron trash followed in lock step. Slick Willy gave billions $$$$$$. (Yasser Arafat for one) of our tax monies to middle eastern radical Dictators that created the terrorist networks we see around the world to this day. Simply put, the Clinton's helped create today's chaotic terrorist reality, mass murder, mass rape and robbery of Christians and Jews with this country's/western world's decline.
Put a round or two in it.
It's funny that the leftist and Muslims are on the same side. Just go's to show what fools they are.
At least since Clinton and through 2nd Bush and now what's his name the Gov't has been destroying American power and enhancing wahhabism. Clinton's destruction of Christians in the Balkans, Bush's protection of Saudis after 9-11 and inviting brotherhood people in as advisors to the present open helping of Isis and non-help of Kurds and open consorting with Brotherhood people shows we have problems.
