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).

Banja Luka daily "Fokus" reported that Ibran Mustafic continues to incite 'hatred' against the Serbs by placing the so called "war-time muslim flags" at the Srebrenica Genocide Memorial in Potocari. Serbs also charge Mustafic for displaying banners which describe the "Serb state" as genocidal. Some of Mustafic's banners read: "Serbia = Aggression = Genocide = Dayton = Republic of Srpska." Other banners read: "Serbia is responsible for the Srebrenica Genocide," "Judgement of the International Court of Justice supersedes Dayton's genocidal creations [two entities]," and "Victims of Genocide Demand Implementation of the International Court of Justice."

The so called "war-time muslim flag," as Serbs call it, is a historic flag with golden lilies (see below) which represents Bosnia and Bosniak people in general. As for Bosnian Serb entity 'Republic of Srpska', it is indeed a genocidal creation formed as a result of a large scale ethnic cleansing, torture, murders, massacres and genocide over Bosnian Muslim population in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Here is a historic flag of Bosniak people and medieval Bosnia. ↓

In July 1995, Serb forces and local Serb civilians (Chetniks) carried Serb flags while they were busy slaughtering 8,000 and expelling 30,000 Bosniaks. I haven't heard any Bosniaks in Srebrenica complaining about Serb flags in post-war Srebrenica. In 1991, Srebrenica was a Bosniak-majority municipality, but now local Serbs - with blood on their hands - form ethnic majority in this historically Bosnian Muslim part of the Balkans.


We invite Ibran Mustafic and local Bosniaks to respond to Serb complaints by displaying 100 additional flags for each complaint that Serbs make. The more Serbs complain, the more flags they will see. We also invite Bosniak participants of the upcoming 15th anniversary of the Srebrenica Genocide to bring as many Bosnian flags and as many posters of Naser Oric as possible. Let's show the Serbs that their provocations are irrelevant and we'll honor our victims regardless of how much local Serbs, who have blood on their hands, complain.

What should the Serbs do?

Instead of complaining, Bosnian Serbs should apologize to Bosniaks for commiting genocide at Srebrenica. They should apologize and seek forgiveness from Bosniak people. Otherwise, there will never be peace. End of story.
