“The witnesses were sent back most probably because of procedural circumstances. Normally, it’s totally unnecessary to invite someone to testify several times.

Dr. Waqar Azmi OBE, chairman of ‘Remembering Srebrenica’
We need world leaders to ensure that they are responsible in their words and actions to not inflame hatred or superiority and cause divisions. We must therefore be vigilant and educate ourselves and our children to respect others as we want to be respected ourselves.

Tarik CRNKIĆ, District Prosecutor
I don’t have a lot of these cases. We have four open cases and I’ve set them as priorities. There was one such trial before I began working here. In a way, I believe that it’s necessary to train the police agencies of entities, because the prosecution isn’t working alone, but with the police.

Today, one finds a man filled with the energy of youth. His hope, so deeply tried, had endured through it all.

Talat Hamdani, mother of Mohammad Salman Hamdani, a 23-year-old certified EMT and NYPD cadet who lost his life as a result of the 9/11 terror attacks.

Muslims have understood the Declaration just like any other declaration which has appeared in the recent past. They were not particularly excited. There have been a number of declarations about Islam and Muslims published in the West and many have viewed this Declaration as one of many which is not going to substantially change anything - the West is going to continue with its story of “Islamic terrorism”, while Muslims will continue to think that the West is waging a Crusade against Muslims.
