It is impossible to oppress the Arnauts [shqiptarët] only with gradual colonization… The only way and means is the brutal force of an organized state government, in which we have always been above them… Only a country inhabited by its own people can survive ”. In signature [të kësaj] it is not Hitler, Goebbels and others out of their way.
“The expulsion of the Arnauts [shqiptarëve]”, Is the memorandum written in 1937 by Vasa ububrilovi,, then assistant professor at the Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade, for the Serbian Cultural Club, which at that time was run by Slobodan Jovanovi dhe and Dragisa Vasi..
As Serbian playwright Cedomir Petrovic writes in an authorial text published in the newspaper “Danas”, “Cubrilovic’s memorandum is considered one of the basic documents of the great Serbian ideology of the twentieth century, which lists the ideas used by the Serbian authorities during the break-up of Yugoslavia for the purpose of ethnic cleansing of Albanians, Muslims and Croats.
“Crimes against Albanians were also committed during the Balkan wars, by the military and police forces of the Kingdom of Serbia and the Kingdom of Montenegro. “120,000 Albanians of both genders and all ages were killed,” Petrovic wrote.
He further writes that “The government of Milan Stojadinovic could not implement the memorandum. The reason, the beginning of World War II and the collapse of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia.
“The communists will shyly reject Vasa ububrilovi. Id’s ideas, but Milohevevi do will accept with both hands the plan to expel the Albanians from Kosovo in 1999, in the operation called ‘Patkoi’. “The plan will include a brutal, massive ethnic cleansing campaign carried out by Serb forces in Kosovo during the 1998 and 1999 conflicts,” Petrovic wrote, Telegrafi reports.
He says that “according to Cubrilovic, the colonialists should be given weapons and lead to a direct conflict between Montenegrins and Albanians in Kosovo.”
“Unrest and fear had to be introduced in the Albanian people. With threats or money forced to relocate. Imposition of large fines on them, in an already difficult and poor life, deforestation and forced labor i Ruthless tax collection, confiscation of state and municipal pastures. Cubrilovic also proposes pressure on the faith, humiliation of religious clerics, excavation of cemeteries, ban on polygamy. “Secret burning of Albanian villages and neighborhoods in cities”, reveals Petrovi,, part of the infamous memorandum.
He further writes that “Vasa ububrilovi,, academic, historian, dual minister, university professor, winner of the” October “and” Seven July “awards, member of the revolutionary organization” New Bosnia “and participant in the assassinations, became one of the ultimate creators of the birth of the superhuman Serb ”.
“About 10,000 Kosovo Albanians were killed in the three bloody and insane months of 1999. The army and police of the then FRY, under the control of the state leadership, expelled over 850,000 Albanians from Kosovo.”
“Citizens [shqiptarëve] persecuted, border authorities [forcat ushtarake e policore serbe] confiscated their personal documents and other evidence of citizenship, systematically erasing their identity ”.
“Milosevic ordered that all corpses in Kosovo that might be of interest to The Hague tribunal should be disposed of. During 1998 and 1999, the Serbian police and military forces carried out major destructions, massacres, arson, well poisoning, rapes, robberies, killings of civilians… “
The Serbian playwright says that “the most terrible crime, which can not be accepted by a sane human mind, was committed in 1998 in Prekaz, in the Drenica area”.
“Large forces of the Serbian military police, armed with tanks, self-propelled guns and artillery, surrounded the house of the Jashari family and for three days and three nights shot indiscriminately at women, children, the elderly and other civilians. “Helicopters and military vehicles fired shots at the roofs of the village houses, and then police forces entered the village, firing on the houses.”
“Serbian security forces, with the help of the Serbian army, killed 56 members of Adem Jashari’s family. Among them 18 women and 10 children. “The seeds were destroyed and genocide was committed against a family.”
“After all these monstrous crimes, the images of which can be compared to the images of fascist crimes from the Second World War… Should the Republic of Kosovo, after all, recognize the Republic of Serbia?”, Asks the Serbian playwright, Telegrafi reports. .
He further writes that “Every animal and every person in this sad world has the right to defend himself when someone attacks him. “As a people of a country, they had to wait to be killed, until the end?”
“Many Albanians who were supporters of a policy of non-violence, after the crimes against the Jashari family, turned to the armed resistance.”
“A number of police officers who took part in actions against Albanians in Kosovo are still considered war heroes in Serbia. “The investigation in Serbia is slow, because many have left the country, and some of the perpetrators are still in the ranks of the police.”
“History must be told, the true story, of the insane crimes of one nation against another and against its own nation,” Petrovic wrote.
“Ata [serbët] they also killed Serbs “
Petrovic says that Serbian military-police forces have also killed Serbs in Kosovo.
“Two masked assailants, dressed in black uniforms with KLA insignia, entered the cafe ‘Panda’ in Peja and killed six young Serbs with automatic weapons. That happened 22 years ago. “The massacre was organized by the State Security Service of Serbia.”
Petrovic says that “it was necessary to present the KLA to the international public as a terrorist organization and to justify the actions of Serbian forces in the territory of Kosovo.”
“I believed in my country, in Serbia, whose fighters are right, but it seems that it is [Serbia] created monsters who were able to sacrifice innocent children. They sowed hatred. I do not know how it is possible for Serbia to give birth to such monsters. “What kind of brains are they?”, Says Petrovi,, the shocking words of Milena, the mother of one of the young Serbs killed in the bar “Panda” by Serbian forces, Telegrafi reports.
“There were no Albanians near the scene, but only the Serbian military and police forces,” he said.
He further states that “Oliver Ivanovi. Was killed. Secretly. Behind the back. “So only the biggest cowards kill.”
“And death speaks in silence… All traces of murderers and inventors lead to Belgrade. And who knows how many other atrocities were committed by the Serbian army and police, disguised in KLA uniforms? ”
“I apologize for all the sins of my people against the Albanian people. “And we will forgive their sins,” Petrovic wrote.
“And let those Serbs who have not committed crimes come to Kosovo and wish their first neighbors a happy independent life and freedom in their Republic of Kosovo.”
“We wish them to become full members of the UN, EU, NATO, UNESCO, Interpol and all other organizations to which the Republic of Kosovo belongs.”
“For Serbs and Albanians to start living a peaceful and secure life together. After all the suffering they have gone through in their history, as few peoples in the world, the Albanians in Kosovo are waiting for the beginning of the life that their ancestors dreamed of, the beginning for those who will come and will never again be treated as a people or a lower race ”.
“There is no difference between us, if they appear, they will be to our detriment.”
Petrovic quoted former Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic as saying, “I tell you, look to the future, look to the future and you and I will meet there.”
“I believe that he would not be angry with me, for writing: ‘Look at the future, look at the future and there in the EU, Kosovo, Serbia and Albania will meet again and all those who were once part of one country, one “Good country, Yugoslavia,” Petrovic wrote.
