THE FACE OF EVIL
In a change of strategy, the negotiating team had decided to marginalise Karadzic and Mladic and to force Milosevic, as the senior Serb in the region, to take responsibility for the war and for the negotiations that we hoped would end it. Now Milosevic wanted to bring the two men back into the discussions, probably to take some of the pressure off of himself.

LETTER TO ORGANIZERS AND VICE PRESIDENT H.E. MR. FRANCO FRATTINI
Genocide denial is also a crime in most democratic states, especially those of the Euro-Atlantic family. We fully agree with this policy as it relates to the Holocaust. It deters not only misinformation but future hate crimes and potential genocides.

ADOPTION OF RESOLUTION ON SREBRENICA ACCELERATES SERBIA'S EU ACCESSION PROCESS
The NGO initiative is of immense importance as it paves a different way for Serbia's EU integration by adopting the European value system and recognising historical facts. The appropriate respect of international law and court decisions will enable the country to eliminate negative stereotypes of Serbia and limit the liability for war crimes to the responsible individuals.

GENOCIDE, ETHNIC CLEANSING AND ANIMOSITY
"In all our discussions with Bosnian Serb leaders pertaining to ethnic cleansing, they did not deny it. Whenever we asked them about it, they would say 'Look what the others are doing to our people', or, as Karadzic put it - 'Sarajevo is a concentration camp in which Serbs are held as hostages and prisoners'. Those were the typical responses we got.

Dr. Safvet Halilovic: Propet's wives...
MOTHERS OF THE BELIEVERS (UMMAHAAT AL-MU'MENEEN)
First, the marriage of young persons of that time should be looked at in the context of that historic and cultural milieu. In fact, the practise of marying young girls was quite ordinary and widespread at that time, and therefore nobody took note of that, not even the Prophet’s most bitter opponents. It is well known that the Prophet’s adversaries from among the idolworshippors (mushriks) were coming up with all kinds of accusations against him. They were quick to use every possible opportunity to attack him and denounce his mission.

A LOOK INTO THE DIVIDED SCHOOL SYSTEM IN BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA
I had the opportunity to come to BiH twice in 1997 to monitor elections - an experience that was useful and eye-opening, especially just two years after the war. It was very interesting to see how reconstruction was going, and it helped me to make the decision to focus on BiH and explore the lessons we could learn about post-war and divided societies.
