Jihadists Still Active in Bosnia

Wahhabism still on the rise in Bosnia. From Reuters:

Bosnian police have uncovered a large cache of weapons and detained a new suspect in the course of their inquiry into a June bomb attack that killed one policeman and injured six others, the prosecutor's office said.

The attack, outside a police station in the town of Bugojno, was one of the most serious security incidents in the Balkan country since an ethnic war ended in 1995.

Shortly after the blast, police arrested the suspected mastermind and his helper -- both believed to be followers of the radical Sunni Muslim Wahhabi sect...

The Wahhabi sect has taken root in Bosnia under the influence of Islamists from abroad, some of whom stayed on after fighting alongside Bosnian Muslims during the 1992-95 war.

Last year, I sat down with Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremik (watch here, here and here) for an exclusive interview in which we discussed, in part, the rise of Wahhabi Islam in neighboring Bosnia. You can watch my full report on Serbia by clicking on the viewer below.

# RE: Jihadists Still Active in Bosnia

Ok so now the US wants to help Serbia against the Wahabis. When is the West going to learn that helping Muslims is akin to 'throwing pearls to swine'.

People demonise the Serbs for their actions yet overlook the atrocities that Islam comits against non-believers day in day out in every place throughout the World.
