For Albanians in Kosovo, Hope for Independence From Serbia

BELGRADE, Serbia, June 8 — Seven years after Kosovo was placed under United Nations control, it appears increasingly likely that the province will be allowed to break away from Serbia formally and become an independent nation.

Members of the United Nations Security Council appear to be leaning toward permitting Kosovo to go its own way. The Council is expected to vote on Kosovo's fate by the end of the year, unless the Serbs and Kosovo Albanians, who have been negotiating unsuccessfully for months, reach a resolution.

But some of the world's most powerful countries are fearful the move will encourage separatist movements elsewhere to intensify their often bloody struggles and give hope to nascent independence groups that have not yet begun to fight.

On the other hand Russia, which had been adamantly opposed to Kosovo's independence, has indicated that it may set a welcome precedent for pro-Russian movements in Georgia and Moldova.

The six nations working on a plan for Kosovo's future — Britain, France, Italy, the United States, Germany and Russia — have coordinated international policy there since the province came under the control of the United Nations.

Their representatives say they will try to draft a resolution for the Security Council that will be so specific to the province that it will avoid setting a precedent for other separatists.

The United Nations has controlled Kosovo, which is still officially a part of Serbia, since June 1999, when Yugoslav troops accused of committing widespread atrocities were forced to withdraw after months of NATO-led bombing. In 1998 and 1999, an estimated 10,000 people, mostly ethnic Albanian civilians, were killed as the Serb-dominated Yugoslav Army and the Serbian police cracked down on an ethnic Albanian insurgency.

Diplomats who represent the United States and Britain in the talks say they believe that the only solution Kosovo's ethnic Albanians will accept is independence, but the diplomats insist that such a new state must provide guarantees for the minority Serbs. Other Western governments also want to find a speedy solution because they are growing weary of financing the peacekeeping troops and the international officials who now administer the province.

But Serbian leaders, wounded by Montenegro's recent break from Serbia and bitterly opposed to yet another split, say Kosovo independence could encourage the breakup of Bosnia and Herzegovina, another former Yugoslav republic.

Milorad Dodik, the prime minister of the Bosnian Serb republic — the area seized by Bosnian Serb forces during the 1992-1995 war — said the region should "affirm the right to self-determination" by holding a referendum. The republic has remained part of Bosnia since the end of the conflict, but many Bosnian Serb politicians have long hoped to unite with neighboring Serbia. A referendum could split Bosnia and provoke renewed violence.

While Mr. Dodik later toned down his remarks, saying the suggestion was "theoretical," ethnic Serbian politicians throughout the region say that if Kosovo becomes independent, pressure will inevitably increase for the breakup of Bosnia.

Some leaders in Serbia have suggested that Kosovo itself should be split, with the Serb-dominated north allowed to remain a part of Serbia, while the Albanian-dominated south forms its own government.

"If the Albanians want independence, maybe they should give something in return," Cedomir Antic, a member of the G17 Plus, a political party in Serbia's coalition government, said in a recent interview.

The United Nations Mission in Kosovo recently announced the deployment of an additional 500 police officers in the north, after threats by local leaders to form vigilante groups to provide security for Serbs against Albanians. Ethnic Albanian leaders have said the threats signal a separatist intent. The NATO-led peacekeeping force also said it would re-open a military base in the area.

In the Caucasus, two pro-Russian breakaway areas of Georgia, South Ossetia and Abkhazia, might seek statehood on their own. Both have been outside the control of Georgia's government since the early 1990's. In addition, Transnistria, a Communist-run separatist region on the eastern edge of Moldova, may seek independence.

In January, President Vladimir V. Putin made it clear that he regarded Kosovo as a precedent for the Caucasus, saying, "If someone believes that Kosovo should be granted full independence as a state, then why should we deny it to the Abkhaz and the South Ossetians?"

Abkhaz politicians have asserted recently that their claims for international recognition are stronger than Kosovo's, because they are not under international protection and because, in their view, they have had a democratic government for almost 12 years.

U.N. Leader in Kosovo to Leave

By The New York Times

LJUBLJANA, Slovenia, June 12 — Soren Jessen-Petersen, the chief of the United Nations mission in Kosovo, announced Monday that he would step down from his post at the end of this month.

Mr. Jessen-Petersen, a Dane, has been in Kosovo since June 2004, and is the United Nations' longest serving head of mission since it took over the administration of the province from Serbia in 1999. He said he was stepping down for "family reasons."

...the minute the world's scumbags (the serbs) ask or attempt to take Northern Kosova, Eastern Kosova will automatically secede from scumbagia (serbia).

Just know this you pieces serb of shit and just try us...oh PLEASE try us!

Just imagine how the remaining serbs throughout Kosova will then fare in a Kosova without it's northern lands.

Above I said, "Just try us!" But now on second thoughts, I'm saying, "don't do this to yourselves!" coz the shit will really, really hit the fan for you guys this time.

That's why you cunts will never ever have any REAL future here in Kosova (soon to be Albania) again!

dardania no way to be part of albania dude... we have our own national idetity. it will be dardania full stop.

uck "terrorists" you say ivan? and what about arms that we're about to buy after the authorization of NATO council lobbyied by american albanians?

I think you're doomed to believe to a 19th century Serbia with a pseudo domination over southern slavsss...
hope you're make up your mind dude, it'll be a great country with rights granted to everyone.

Bg anon said...

albanian through and through what you need is to think a little more rationally.

Neither side in the region can do anything without the support of the international community. Kosovo Albanians are only slightly less powerless than Kosovo Serbs are so it isnt a question of trying anything.

And you may support a Greater Albanian but other Kosovo Albanians dont. It would be very stupid indeed if the next confrontation in Kosovo was between Greater Albanianists and Kosova unitarists. That could only end in tears - and with no Serbs to blame as scapegoats.

My compliments. You've reached the unreachable. Even Hitler hasn't managed such a thing.

To all posters on this blog (whether Serbian, Albanian or others),

Since more or less everybody of us claims to have modern democratic values, as such you should all condemn the above writings of Mitrovica. Not only he calls on genocide, but he is also blasphemizing Christianity and Islam. I hope that Mitrovica doesn't show the real face of Kosovo.

I more or less condemn Mitrovica for his behavior.

P.S. Mitrovica, try quoting Lord of the Rings next time.

I know. It’s all wrong. By rights we shouldn’t even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going, because they were holding on to something. That something is, no more rapist serbs around.

Mitrovica pika pika,
You are not impresing any of us here and I'm sure no one with some common sence would be impresed reading your comments.
"Knowledge is quiet, ignorance often is not".
It is so easy to yell at others facing a computer screen.
Albanians will be having serbs as neighbours forever, like it or not. I said neigbours. I believe it is for the benefit of both to have good neighbouring relation based on mutual respect from now on. Respect of freedom, human rights, human values, culture and each others territory (country).

Bg anon said...

Mitrovica you dont get it do you? It isnt the rapist Serbs that are the problem, the problem is in your head.

I mean by that not that you are sick but that as soon as 'rapist Serbs' are gone you will find somebody else to fill that space - the role of bad guy.

Its life as Hollywood, and Hollywood roles of good and evil are fantasy just like Lord of the Rings.

People often spoke of the failure to create a Yugoslav nationalism, some even claim that had Yugoslavia been attacked by an external enemy from 45 - 88 say things would have been different.

I say that all those people referred to as nationalists would just transfer their nationalism from one type to another because its their state of mind. In fact evidence shows how many former Titoists took up former Republic nationalism (Tudjman, Alija, Rugova, Milosevic - though he was a fake nationalist etc)

Thus the trick is to discourage irrational thinking about ethnic group and artificial differences between human beings - particularly in those that arent capable of controlling themselves.

If that sounds a little undemocratic or high handed then I would pay that price to have prevented all the crap that happened in this region.

Bullshit I am not vying for an empire or some ambition beyond Kosova's borders. I want serbs not to be an issue when it comes to Kosova's peace and prosperity in any way shape or form and today sewerbs are holding Kosova's prosperity hostage. And eu-trash please spare me of you piety bs, everone knows what hell spawn you fucking are. From crusades onward you have been nothing but a scourge and evil on the face of the earth.

It is normal that we support the joining to Albanian becasue Kosovo was part of Albania when you servians siezed it.

But for political reasosn I would not like joining right now. Why that?

Well it is better to have two states now so the investments will be implemented much better and the economy will fourish. But even we wouldn't join to Albanian we will liberise the visa entries and the border would be just like in Eu zone we will check only peoples so we could stop smugling of peoples and contrabands.

Kristian said...

To: Cv...

Kristian, I hoped I would get a comment from you on the things I wrote below on my previous post, but unfortunatelly you haven't replied on that, but I would like to know your opinion about it, just to remind you:

"As the economy is concerned, since you mention it Kristian, not that around 60% are unemployed and own cells, but there is a huge grey economy that damages the state itself. It is not only the case of Kosovo, but of all countries in Europe, but not in such a volume as Kosovo and Albania and that is to a certain extend due to the corruption at the state level. How it can be solved? hard to say, but one good step would be in regional cooperation having as a model CEFTA, creating a unique Balkan market. A big market of around 30 mil consumers can be a incentive for more investments - working places and fight against grey markets."


......and own cells...

As far as corruption goes, it is prevelant in all countries in europe and the world. Singling out Al. and Kosovo/a is a bit harsh considering that the balkans is themost corrupt area in europe. Serbia, BH, Mont., Mac, and Croatia all belong to the same club. You can even break it down from urban to rural areas and compare it from country to country and you'll probably come up with the same stats on the FROY.

How do you solve it?


Start with the 10 golden rules that we all learn here in the states.

Don't lie, cheat, steal, etc....

You have to teach kids the rights and wrongs and parents have to practice those rules otherwise kids imitate what they see.


As far as your idea of a regional co-operation. I believe I came up with that a long time ago when we were talking about who are trading partners will be. And how we need each other in order to grow as a region. Anyways....

I totally believe that a free trade zone should immediately be implemented ASAP. Even though you have ppl saying we should boycott products from certain countries, in the end its only counter productive. But equaling the balance of trade should be taken into strict consideration.

I see greece as a threat to the interests of FROY. When it comes to Corruption they are masters at it. And you'll never realize it ever happened until much time has passed. They are cruel in their business tactics and don't care about our region that much. Doesn't matter if your Al., BH, Cro., Mac., or Serbian. All i'm saying is you have to scrutinize their plans of investment with a microscope bc it will be for their benefit and not the ppls benefit. They're very calculating business persons that don't abide by the rules as much as other countries do.

I think investments from Slovenia would be more productive then from our greek neighbor. Slovenians look at things long term while in my opinion the greeks are looking for the quick buck!

Back to corruption! In our region of the world, corruption was instilled in us by the Turks and their way of doing business during their 500+ year occupation. Turkey has moved on, while we're still stuck in the past mode that they instilled upon us and our institutions. (Al., BH, Mac, Serb, Bul., Mont.) Communism didn't help either in curbing corruption either.

Strict control mechanisms should be implemented, but also praticed. Its easy to write a law but if the judicial system is weak no matter what law you put into play it will not help anyone in the long term. govts also need to simplify things in the region. Trade rights, procedures, transfer of money, property, etc... And again ppl have to be educated on these reforms. A huge media campaign should be introduced to educate the ppl. The more you inform them the simpler things will be.

Positions in govt shouldn't be guaranteed. You help someone cheat the system you lose your JOB AND PENSION! PERIOD!

You get that message out and it will deter workers from corruption. Constant audits by outside firms would keep these workers in check. 10yrs time you'll see corruption dwindle or you'll have the opposite affect: the balkanites will be better users of the system causing more corruption.

Besides losing jobs, jail sentences would be a great deterrent here. Example: a cashier at a supermarket steals from you. Don't confront her, make sure you have evidence, call the police, she goes to jail. The judicial system is the backbone of the system. If they have no authority then it will be a mess but if they do have power then corruption will diminish.

Judges have to be competent persons with foreign educations in the legal system. Western european ideologies and Northern american ideologies of law would help the region. Being impartial and fair should be the motto of each judge. "Justice is blind". And the ideology that a person is innocent till proven guilty would go a long way for we all know ppl in the balkans make up their minds on a persons fate prior to even a trial.

My thoughts.........

Peace to all :)

P.S. I should write a book!
P.S.S Your right about the name thing! My apologies!

Albanian gets 14 years for buying a girl for sex

Wednesday, June 14, 2006 12:23 PM

An Albanian woman and her boyfriend who bought a teenage Latvian girl and forced her to work as a prostitute are going to be jailed for their crimes after being found guilty in the London court.

Mirella Zeneli, a 34 year old Albanian woman, bought an 18-year-old Latvian orphan for 4,000 British pounds, then charged men 120 pounds to have sex with her. The girl was beaten and forced to have sex up to 30 times a day while Zeneli and her boyfriend, Blendi Krasniqi, also 34, taped the rapes and posted them on the Internet as advertising material.

Zeneli was found guilty of three charges of aiding and abetting acts of rape and given 14 years of jail. Krasniqi was sentenced to 6 years.

"This girl was totally dehumanized. She will never fully recover from her ordeal," said Detective Sergeant Tony Eddington, who led the police inquiry.

He said her case was the "tip of the iceberg" of sex-trafficking in Britain.

The Latvian teenager came to UK in 2004 at the age of 18, expecting to work as an au pair. She was given a forged passport by another Albanian and then bought and sold between Albanian men who raped her, beat her and injected her with drugs.

Zeneli was the fourth owner of the girl.

The girl finally managed to escape one afternoon. She ran to a pub and since she knew no English she deliberately stole a man's wallet and the mobile phone in front of bar staff so they would call the police and save her.

Zeneli and Krasniqi denied all charges.

Judge Price strongly advised that the pair gets deported after their release from jail. The victim has returned to Latvia.

Bosnian Croats, Muslims in street battles over soccer

Wednesday, June 14, 2006 6:03 AM

MOSTAR, Bosnia-Herzegovina-Bosnian Croat and Muslim fans collided in this southern Bosnian town following the World Cup match Tuesday between Brazil and Croatia, leaving one person seriously wounded by a gunshot and dozens injured, police officials said.

"Shortly after the game ended, a large group of fans gathered and started throwing stones and breaking windows, destroying benches, bus stops and vehicles," police spokeswoman Lejla Trivun told The Associated Press.

Croatia played well in a 1-0 loss to the defending World Cup champions and when Bosnian Croats celebrated the good showing by neighboring Croatia, they collided with Muslims who cheered for Brazil.

"Special police forces were deployed and detained 26 persons. Six officers were injured and three police vehicles were damaged. Gunfire was reported and one person has been seriously wounded," Trivun said.

The reason why ppl will invest in Kosovo/a is bc it has a lot to offer. To its neighbors and worldwide investors.

Mineral deposits which are one of thee largest in europe. Trepca ring a bell. That is why serbia would love the north to be partitioned, so it can keep that 2000+ yr old mine. Energy is another product that is in great demand in the region. Even for the ones that do not pay their electric bill and those that haven't payed in the last 6 yrs. You might now the latter folks I'm talking about.

I only gave to examples with the greatest potential. And reality is there are enough things to invest in then just you phobia of "MUSLIM CRIMINALS".


I do believe you have a phobia of 'ISLAM'! Make sure you don't close your eyes at night aight!

Serbs are spending much these days.

The Venable Law Firm Contract with the Serbian National Council of Kosovo and Metohija

On April 24, 2006, in the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call and on May 1 in the “Full Disclosure: New and Notes from K Street” section of the Legal Times, the first reports appeared that Venable, LLP, one of the premiere law-lobbying firms in Washington, had "inked a deal in March with the Serbian National Council of Kosovo and Metohija , a group representing displaced Serbs whoremained in Kosovo after the 1999 NATO intervention.” Both papers said that Venable would receive US$600,000 over a six-month period for providing the group “with strategic tactical planning on foreign policy matters before the U.S. government.” The announcement in Roll Call indicated that Venable would receive an additional $100,000 per month if the contract were extended.

On inspection, the contract filed on March 22, 2006, with the U.S. Department of Justice, under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, between Venable and the Serbian National Council of Kosovo and Metohija, c/o Abbot Simeon (Vllovksi) at the Banjska Monastery, is signed by James Jatras, and includes the following points: The arrangement encompasses “providing strategic counsel and tactical planning on foreign policy matters before the U.S. Government (Executive and Legislative branches) and related media work.” Venable’s services to the Serbian National Council “will include those of the media service, Global Strategic Communications Group (GSCG), acting at Venable’s direction to include media preparation and outreach, assistance in crafting policy statements, op-ed and editorial placements, electronic information stream, media monitoring, formation and administration of an American policy council, crafting and placement of paid media, and reporting and advice.”

“Media preparation and outreach”: Venable’s Principal Offering to Belgrade

Associated Press:

On April 14, just a few weeks after the Serbian National Council signed its contract with James Jatras at Venable, David Hammer of the Associated Press released an article on AP’s “Worldstream,” entitled “Serbia wants U.S. Congress to help put brakes on Kosovo’s independence.” The article stated that Serbia was “urging the U.S. House of Representatives to follow the Senate’s lead and say that the breakaway province of Kosovo is not now ready for independence.” Albanian journalists in the Balkans reacted negatively to the description of Kosova as a “breakaway province,” in view of the fact that Kosova was annexed by Serbia after World War I. Meanwhile, the Associated Press failed to comment on the fact that the Congressional resolution introduced by Congressman Steve Chabot (R-OH) in December 2005 (H.Res. 634), in support of S.R. 237, introduced by Senator George Voinovich (D-OH), had been ignored by the House Committee on International Relations, where the leaders, Congressmen Tom Lantos and Henry Hyde, had earlier introduced H.Res. 24, which calls on the United States to recognize Kosova’s independence now.

In the AP article, Vuc Jeremic, Serbian President Boris Tadic’s chief foreign affairs adviser, was quoted as saying that, “Congress could provide important political cover for Serbia’s centrist coalition leadership if it would emphasize Kosovo’s failures to meet the requirements for independence .” But this is not what has happened. In May 2006, the United Nations Mission in Kosova publicly stated that the Kosovar government was meeting its obligations under the plan of standards implementation. Meanwhile, the international mediators in the Prishtina-Belgrade talks announced that they would begin to lay the groundwork for final status talks later this summer.

That's right Kristian. I am an albanian muslim and I can't remember when we albanians fought each other based on religion.

I am really glad that we albanians the only one nation on the world which maintained peace among the various religions. Even we had strong influences to split apart on each religion starting to muslims, roman catholics, orthodox and lately also protestans (I am not sure if I spelled correctly the last one), we never split and we will not be splited for ever.

We are familiar with sentence:

"Mos shiko as kisha e as xhamia se feja e shqiptarit eshte Shqiptaria"

the translation

"Don't look or churches either mosques because the religion of albanians is Shqiptaria"

Monuments of Catholic Cult in Kosovo during the Middle Ages
source: J. Dracol
By J. Dracol
21 Mai 2006

A multitude of Christian monuments in Kosovo host in silence traces not to the loudly proclaimed “Battle of Kosovo” and “Cradle of Civilization” myths, but to the Serbian invasion on the respective territories.

To cover and justify their early invasion Serbia constructed some ultra scientific thesis that intermingle the human rights with the Serbian identity duty. Said differently, “any territory that presumably preserves Serb” national identity should be seen as an un-alienated right of that particular nation and/or state. Thus, if the international community would proclaim Kosovo as independent, Serbia will automatically be denied off its sovereignty and cultural inheritance that is presumably “Serbian” in Kosovo.

To sanctify the above thesis, Serbia embarked on creating Serbian concept of the Christian Cult Monuments. Especially in Kosovo, the number of these enlisted Serbian cult monuments turned up to be imposing, thus making Kosovo the extraordinary value carrier for Serbia.

It is important to note that during the registration of monuments in Kosovo during 1956, 1968, 1986 and 1993, about two thirds were evidenced as belonging to the Orthodox Serbs (22 monasteries 110 orthodox Serb churches), 25 being mosques, and 29 monuments belonging to the Byzantine ritual. Nothing was mentioned on how most of the orthodox Serb monuments other Cult Monuments at least until the turn of XII century.

Albanian historiography kept silence on that, which unfortunately allowed room these speculative findings to root and find supporters around the world. Only a few renowned researches like: Gaspër Gjini, Skënder Rizaj, Zef Mirdita, Shan Zefi, Fejaz Drançolli were able through their researches and work to shake the foundation of the fabricated Serbian historiography on the so called Orthodox Serb Cult Monuments.

A careful look on the historical sources of all times, and archaeological findings would expose to anyone the Serbian appropriation of the Hillyro-Albanian cult monuments as early as the Roman-Byzantine era. The appropriation practices originate at the time when Stephan Nemancic ruled.

The most important Christian Cult Monuments in Kosovo such as the Church of the Decan Monatery, Gracanica’s, Saint Michael and Gabriel’s in Prizren, the Church of Lady Prena in Prizren, the Complex of Patrikana of Peja, the Church of Saint Stephen (Shtjefen) in Mitrovica suburbs etc, are all ancient. All serious researchers agree the churches and monasteries above are re-constructed, and renovated atop of ancient monuments that once belonged to Roman or Byzantine ritual. The Gracanica Monastery, according to old historical sources and archeological findings in 1957, 1963, 1964 has been a basilica, constructed around VI-XI after Christ. The basilica was the spiritual center of the Dardanian Ulpiana. After its destruction, the foundation hosted the Church of the Blessed Lady of Gracanica. The last church is mentioned in a letter of Pope Benedict XI in 1303 as being a catholic church. It was the Serbian despot Milutin who build the monastery of Gracanica atop of the Blessed lady of Gracanica Catholic Church around 1316.

Likewise, the Monastery of Saints Michael and Gabriel replaced an ancient Dardanian church that belonged to the late antique period. The reconstruction took place around 1348. Major donations appear to have come from the Ragusians and other catholic stock of the tradesmen operating in Prizren at the time. The archaeologists have discovered interesting artifacts digging around the old foundations that clearly indicate Roman and Gothic influences.

For example the discovered mosaic retains no resemblance with any of the Serbian mosaics and/or themes. It is rather striking that its style has many similarities with rather the mosaic at the Cathedral of Santa Maria in Florence. Further more, the grave of the Albanian Nobleman and ruler Strazimir Balsha is hosted by the Church belonging to this Monastery since 1372.

It is well documented that King Milutin (Nemancic) seized and appropriated the Cathedral of Lady Prena in Prizren. The church architecture demonstrates several construction phases, which as pinpointed by the archaeologist Edi Shukria can be divided chronologically as belonging to the antique and middle age periods.

The Church of Martyrs was constructed around XIII century. Today it is grouped with other churches in the Complex of Patricana in Peja. The church was constructed in the Roman style. Its sacral ornaments are in the spirit of the coastal Dalmatian - Albanian tradition. The small and engraved stones are sacral work of art characteristic of the roman –gothic and invariably traditions of construction in the Middle Ages in Kosovo.
The Dalmation- Albanian influences in the construction which originated from Ragusa, Kotorri, Korçulla, Tivari, Ulqini, Shkodra etc, are quite visible in the Church of the Monastery of Decan. The church was reconstructed by Stefan Deçan and Duschan (1327–1335).

The Monastery of Deçan church is the most typical object attesting to the Albanian –Dalmatian coastal inspiration and style. In the main beam of the south portal you can still find the engraved signature of the Albanian architect Father Vita Kuçi – Cuci. His life and deed is described in the registers of the Historic Archives of Kotorr. One document in particular, issued by the Office of Notary of Kotorr, indicates that the catholic monk Vita Kuçi was the rector, or the Superior Monk of the Church.

The ruin and appropriation of the ancient churches from the Serbian invaders and the annihilation of the Albanian Clergy are well documented, and the pile of documents is big. An anonymous writer in 1308, a letter of an Albanian noblemen to the Pope, John XXII in 1319, a report of the Dominican Guillelmus Adae, archibishop of Tivar around 1330; The Code of Duschan in 1349 -1354; a letter of repent that emperor Duschan writes to Pope Innocent VI in 1354, etc., all testify to it.

The statistical documents expose:

The cities, markets, and zones around of mines of Kosovo were populated by the indigenous Albanians, Serbs, and thousands of Christian Catholics immigrants from Ragusa, Kotorr, and other neighbouring places.
The notification from offices and notaries validate their seamless economical and communal gatherings:

Interesting pieces of information on the Monuments of the Catholic Cults during the middle ages in Kosovo are the papal messages which shed light, between others, on the church organization in Balkan. A letter of Pope Benedict XI, 1303 talks about Churches in Rudnik, Rogozine,Graçanicë and Trepçë.

A letter of Clement VI, 1346, mentions other churches resident in today’s Kosovo. The line of churches begins with the Church in Prizren, and continues with others in Novobërdë, Janjevë, Kopriç dhe Ostrac. Other churches are mentioned in the correspondence between persons of importance in the papacy during centuries XVI-XVIII. The existence of the above churches is further validated through the documentation possessed by the Institute for Protection of Monuments in Kosovo, and Pristina. This documents further attest that the majority of these churches is either demolished and appropriated by the Serbian and Turkish invaders, or it is in ruins.


Many monuments of Christian cult in Kosovo have been used and are still used today to argue the existence of a "Serbian cradle", and they Serbe as a fundamental pretext or "justification" for Serbian aggression.
According to the Serbian official statistics of 1956, 1968, 1986 and 1993, the number of monuments of Christian cult was much greater than that of other cults. About two thirds of them were registered as being monuments of Serbian Orthodox cult. 22 Monasteries and 110 Churches are registered as Serbian Orthodox. As well as 25 Mosques, there were 29 monuments of the Byzantine cult, which in some cases were appropriated by the Serbs, while in others they built their Churches and Monasteries upon the ruins of the old ones: a process continuing from the 13th century down to the present day. According to these same statistics, there are records of only three Catholic Churches, which are all now in ruins. The main monuments of Christian cult in Kosovo are considered as being Serbian Orthodox Churches and Monasteries. The Monastery of Deçan, the Church of Graçanica, the sanctuaries of Saints Miho (Michael) and Gabriel in the Prizren region, the Church of Saint Prenda in Prizren, the partiarchal complex in Peja, and the Church of St. Stephen in the region of Mitrovica all constitute an ancient patrimony, both for the indigenous Albanians and for the Serbs who came to Kosovo as invaders. The Churches in question were built, rebuilt and restored upon the foundations of ancient monuments of the Romano-Byzantine period.

The medieval official documents of the 14th and 15th centuries that are preSerbed in the archives of the Vatican, of Raguza, Kotorri and Venice, offer a perspective that is diametrically opposed to the Serbian claims. They testify to the existence of dozens of Catholic Christian Churches, Convents and Cathedrals that Serbed their own communities in this region. Some of the Churches mentioned in these documents are those of St. Peter, of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and of St. Nicholas in Prizren; the Cathedral of Santa Maria de Nuovamonte and of St. Nicholas in Novobërdë. There were also many other churches in Janjevë, Trepçë, Prishtinë, Bellasicë, Rudnik, Rogozinë, Graçanicë, Kopriç and Ostrac.

Many medieval Catholic Churches are mentioned in the reports of Papal legates and visitors from the 16th to the 18th centuries.
The author reaches the conclusion that many monuments of Catholic, Byzantine and Serb orthodox cult "co-existed" in the area of Kosovo in medieval times. A number of sacred medieval monuments, both Catholic and Byzantine, are witnessed to today only by residual material traces of their culture and by documentary evidence preSerbed in archives and museums. On the other hand, the Serbian Orthodox Church arrogated to itself the ancient Illyro-Albanian Churches, upon the foundations of which they have been building or rebuilding their own churches since the 13th century.

My should something written by a albanian hurt me? Do you suppose that a albanian would writte that these churches are Serbian? Guess not.

Now I know that these churches are ours, which is already proven and well known, whereas you in your thievery tradition are trying to prove that they were yours. I mean go step by step, you have to prove first everyone that you're Illyrians, that you're not.

No one needs to prove anything to you. All non-serbian historians (meaning the rest of the world)has confirmed that albanians are the only illyrian descendants. Our language proves it, our our names our history. You are the losers that confronts the whole world not us. you are the ones that should prove your reliability.

Thanks for all the insight into the various attitudes of each side of the conflict. It is very clear who are the antagonists of this conflict, and which group will most likely continue to instigate violence.
