Kosovo: 40 Muslims arrested for waging jihad in Iraq and Syria; mosques used for recruiting; explosive devices, weapons and ammunition seized
Every day it becomes terribly clear how vicious it was of President Clinton to send US troops to fight alongside Albanian Muslims and defeat the Christian Serbs in the cause of Islam.
Not only are Muslims from Kosovo going to Iraq and Syria to wage jihad. They are also waging jihad against non-Muslims in Kosovo. Their successful and continuing ethnic cleansing of non-Muslims from parts of the former Yugoslav Republic is owed largely to Bill Clinton’s war in Bosnia, sold to the clueless Clinton administration by the notorious EU dhimmis.
The Bosnian capital of Sarajevo, once a symbol of ethnic diversity, has become an entirely Muslim city.
The operation by special police forces was carried out early on Monday at some 60 locations throughout Kosovo, including make-shift mosques suspected of serving as recruiting sites.
Forty people “suspected of taking part in the war in Syria by supporting the terrorist organizations ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant) and (Al-Qaeda affiliate) Al-Nusra” were arrested, police said in a statement.
“Explosive devices, weapons and ammunition were seized,” it added.
Kosovo is a Muslim-majority country, although religion plays only a minor part in public life and tends to take a very moderate form.
President Atifete Jahjaga welcomed the arrests, insisting that Kosovo “will not be a haven for extremism.”
In June, three ethnic Albanians — who make up more than 90 percent of Kosovo’s 1.7 million population — were arrested on suspicion of setting up a “terrorist organization” as media alleged they were recruited by ISIS, which has since renamed itself Islamic State, while fighting in Syria.
The three were arrested upon their return to Kosovo where intelligence agents intercepted their communications and plans to carry out suicide attacks in public places.
Local media say as many as 150 Kosovans are thought to have volunteered to fight in the Syrian civil war against the forces of President Bashar al-Assad.
Police say at least 16 have been killed in Iraq and Syria so far.
