Danijela Tesla, the youngest descendant of the world’s greatest inventor Nikola Tesla, was only 5-years-old when she was forced to flee another Croat pogrom against the Serbs in Krajina, birthplace of the “man who invented 20th century”.
Serbia has dedicated year 2009 to Pavle “Paja” Jovanović (1859-1957), nation’s greatest academic realist painter alongside Uroš Predić. On the occasion of 150 years since his birth, an exhibition of Pavle Jovanović’s paintings, drawings and sketches is being held from June 16 to July 16, in the town of Vršac (84 km northeast of Belgrade), the great master’s birthplace.
Born on 4 June 1859, Pavle Jovanović was a son of professional photographer Stevan Jovanović, a gifted artist in his own right.
His extravagant talent became apparent in the early childhood, when attending liturgical services with his parents before the iconostasis painted by Pavle Đurković and Arsa Teodorović left a permanent imprint on Jovanović’s aesthetic sensibility, sparking passion for monumental epic compositions that will follow prodigal painter throughout his life and on his many journeys.
“In the West, the popular mythology about 7,000-8,000 Muslim men being executed in Srebrenica in 1995 is still alive and well, but independent research shows some 2,000 Bosnian Muslim fighters were killed in battle for Srebrenica and that is the number of bodies Hague investigators were able to find”, said Swiss researcher Alexander Dorin, who has been investigating Srebrenica events for the past 14 years.
In his latest book titled “Srebrenica — The History of Salon Racism” (Srebrenica — die Geschichte eines salonfahigen Rassismus) published this month in Berlin, Dorin focuses on manipulations with the number of Muslims who lost their lives in Srebrenica.
Just like in the 1990s, during the civil war in the territory of former Yugoslavia, in recent years too German media supported the decision of their government both when it came to recognizing the mafia state on Serbian territory — its Kosovo and Metohija province — and when it was decided Germany should be the first country in the world to raise their office in Priština to the level of embassy.
Only one political party, the Left (Die Linke), led by two prominent politicians Oskar Lafontaine (former German finance minister and ex chairman of the leading Social Democratic Party) and Gregor Gizi, distanced itself from those decisions. Last year was the first time Die Linke received a significant number of votes also on the territory of the former West Germany, in addition to its popularity in the former East Germany. But although Die Linke represents the opinion of many Germans, the mainstream media in Germany noted their opposition to imposed redrawing of Serbian borders only at the very bottom of newspapers, as a side note. Much greater attention was given to the information that “Lusatian Serbs oppose the secession of Kosovo province from Serbia.”
Milivoje Ivanišević, a publicist and war-crimes investigator in former Bosnia-Herzegovina, in his essay “Searching for the Truth,” proves that there are at least two sides (he refers to them two “Identification Cards” or “IDs”) for Srebrenica, which are tied to the events that took place in July 1995.
The Srebrenica ID Card, full 34-page report by Milivoje Ivanisevic in PDF format, published in Serbian in May 2007, by Glas Javnosti, and translated by Milo Yelesiyevich.
“Although I expected Western sources to differ from reality, I never expected to find people living in ghettos in the 21st century in Europe,” Boris Malagurski, a young Canadian filmmaker who just finished documentary about the Serbian Kosovo province, said.
Shocked with the abysmal lack of even the most basic human rights for the remaining Kosovo-Metohija Serbs, stranded in a province brutally carved out of Serbia by the powerful Western states, which used Albanian terrorists and criminals to impose dismemberment of a UN-member state, Boris Malagurski decided to make a documentary that would offer an unembellished glimpse into everyday dread in a land butchered away.
“Bad movies are indestructible,” said Kusturica, after the reel of Hollywood blockbuster movie Die Hard 4 — ceremoniously buried at the opening of the first Kustendorf Festival last year — suddenly morphed into a Bruce Willis character who turned into a vampire and, to the utter horror of the peaceful Drvengrad villagers, with his super-human strength, broke out of what was supposed to be his final resting place. His cool black jacket caught fire from the candles lit at the annual commemoration of his passing and he turned into a giant torch. Die Hard 5 ran, roared, moaned and groaned, stumbled and fell…
Book by Ljiljana Bulatovic-Medic, available only in Serbian for the time being, “Screams and the Omen”, a harrowing testimony about the agony Bosnian Serbs were subjected to by their Muslim neighbors in Srebrenica death camps during the Bosnian civil war (1992-1995), was promoted on December 3, 2008, in Belgrade, by the Association of Writers of Serbia.
With the third book in the edition “The Real Srebrenica”, Ljiljana Bulatovic-Medic has given a valuable contribution to establishing the full truth about the martyrdom and bloodcurdling sufferings of the Serbs in Srebrenica, which is to this day entirely ignored by the Western officials and the mainstream media.
In 1898, six years before the Wright brothers flew, Nikola Tesla, a Serbian-born American immigrant, designed and built a pair of radio controlled, robot boats.
Tesla demonstrated the vessels to a shocked crowd in an indoor pool at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The crowd was amazed how Tesla, always a showman, maneuvered his six-foot-long boat in patterns through the water, and then stopped and started the craft. He even had the forethought to equip his boats with a crude logic gate which prevented them from being taken over by another transmitter other than his own. The craft alarmed those in the crowd who saw it and who claimed it to be everything from magic and telepathy to being piloted by a trained monkey hidden inside.
Professor Dr. Slaviša Dobričanin testified in the Hague as a defense witness in the trial against the late Yugoslav and Serbian President Slobodan Milošević from April 7-13, 2005. In addition to confirming conclusive findings of the Serbian, Finnish and Belorussian teams of pathologists, that Račak casualties were killed in combat, Professor Dobričanin revealed a number of fascinating, unknown details, vividly illustrating the violent anti-Serbian bias of Western riffraff that flocked to the Serbian province in preparation of NATO aggression, and the dramatically charged Serbophobia that enabled Račak hoax.
It is important to note that, after the testimonies of Judge Marinković and Professor Dobričanin, the Račak-related charges were dropped from all five indictments at the Hague, including those of former Presidents Milošević and Milutinović.
