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).

Srebrenica Genocide Blog get tons of genocide denial comments every day. All of them get flashed down the toilet where they belong. I decided to make one exception today. A person named "Max" sent us the following comment full of deliberate lies and distortions. Now I am going to cut his lies into pieces and refute them.

LIES: "Max" said: "The number of 7,000-8,000 missing Bosnian Muslims, presented to the public as the victims of a war crime, is one of the biggest lies and manipulations continually present in this part of the world. The list of 7,000-8,000 Bosnian Muslims contains the names of the individuals who have been reported missing — it is not the list of the victims of a crime, those who have allegedly lost their lives during Srebrenica takeover.Thus far, there is absolutely no evidence which would prove 7,000 or 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men were killed in Srebrenica."

TRUTH: There is tons of evidence that proves Serb forces killed 8,000 and expelled 30,000 Bosniaks during the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide. The list of 7,000 - 8,000 is supported by forensics and DNA evidence. Through the use of DNA identity testing, the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP) has revealed the identity of 6,186 persons missing from the July 1995 fall of Srebrenica, by analyzing DNA profiles extracted from bone samples of exhumed mortal remains and matching them to the DNA profiles obtained from blood samples donated by relatives of the missing.The overall high matching rate between DNA extracted from these bone and blood samples leads ICMP to support an estimate of close to 8,100 individuals missing from the fall of Srebrenica.

LIES: "Max" said: "The [Serb] Commission established that out of 8,000 of the total number of the individuals named on the lists they were given, 4,500 have died of natural causes, in battles or in other ways, and prior to July 1995, i.e. prior to Srebrenica takeover and the alleged massacre. Bosnian Muslim Srebrenica column, comprised of fully armed combatants belonging to Naser Oric’s notorious 28th division (stationed in Srebrenica throughout the Bosnian civil war), a 'legitimate military target'."

TRUTH: Your data is outdated and authored by two Serbian propagandist sources - Stefan Karganovic and Dr. Ljubiša Simić. There are at least 80 Srebrenica mass graves, not 13 as mentioned in that 'report.' All victims - both unarmed civilians and armed defenders - had been executed as prisoners of war contrary to Geneva Convention. Of 8,000 victims, at least 500 of them were underage boys which legally qualifies them as children according to the UN Convention on the Rigts of the Child. According to Krstic appeal, Serb forces "targeted for extinction the 40,000 Bosnian Muslims living in Srebrenica." Women and children were not saved, but forcibly expelled. The reason women and children did not meet the same fate as men is because that operation carried "an increased risk of attracting international censure." Let me quote from Krstic's appellate judgment, "In contrast to the killing of the captured military men, such an action could not easily be kept secret, or disguised as a military operation, and so carried an increased risk of attracting international censure... Constrained by the circumstances, they [Serbs] adopted the method which would allow them to implement the genocidal design while minimizing the risk of retribution."
