Remembering Srebenica by Steve Payne

Author says: what if the United Nations had defended the Muslim enclaves in Bosnia? this story is dedicated to the bond of brotherhood between Christians and Muslims. Please note that the opinions expressed in this post do not necessarily reflect the views of the author(s).

July 11th 2010,

on this day Dutch Footballers wore blackarm bands at the World Cup Final to mark the fifteenth anniversary of the Srebenica Massacre at which four-hundred Dutch peace-keepers died, bravely defending the lives of eight thousand Bosniak Muslims.

"May have an interesting ripple effect on attitudes of Muslims in a Western Europe" - readers comment Mass murdering units of the Army of Republika Srpska under the command of General Ratko Mladic were ethnic cleansing the territory in the former Yugoslavia. A paramilitary unit from Serbia known as the Scorpions, officially part of the Serbian Interior Ministry until 1991, also participated in the massacre.

In 1993 the United Nations had declared Srebrenica a "safe area" under UN protection but its Protection Force, represented on the ground by a 400-strong contingent of armed Dutch peacekeepers, failed to prevent the massacre, plunging the region into devasting new phase of the war.
