DID YOU KNOW?  -- Three years before the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide, Serbs torched Bosniak villages and killed at least 3,166 Bosniaks around Srebrenica. In 1993, the UN described the besieged situation in Srebrenica as a "slow-motion process of genocide." In July 1995, Serbs forcibly expelled 25,000 Bosniaks, brutally raped many women and girls, and systematically killed 8,000+ men and boys (DNA confirmed).

The Parliament of Serbia is debating the Srebrenica Declaration and the vote is expected take place any moment from now. While stopping short of using the proper terminology, the statement simply refers to the Srebrenica Genocide as a 'crime'.

The radical ultranationalist opposition parties are poised to vote against the declaration. Even a former staunch supporter of the declaration, Cedomir Jovanovic (Liberal Democratic Party), said his party would not support it because the declaration does not contain the word Genocide.

Jovanovic said: "We were silent for too long, we protected Ratko Mladic for years, and then we spent years searching for him in vain, and today we still have no stregth to say what he is accused of. We need to tell the truth, and the truth is that Ratko Mladic - as a commander in Chief of the Bosnian Serb Army, overrun the U.N. protected enclave of Srebrenica, then he guaranteed people rights under the Geneva Convention, and then he proceeded to separate men from women and systematically killed them in seven days, then he dumped them into primary mass graves, and then he moved them from these graves into secondary graves mixing their bones."

“If they adopt a resolution that does not mention the term genocide it will not represent anything for us. It is even an insult,” Munira Subasic, the spokeswoman of NGO "Mothers of Srebrenica", said in a statement.

Head of the Islamic Community in Serbia, Mufti Muamer ef. Zukorlic, also warned that:

"If they remove one letter from the word Genocide, let them know we won't accept the Srebrenica Declaration without the word Genocide."
