The corporatist, strongly Roman Catholic leaning Conservative Parties in German – CDU/CSU (the combination of Christian Democrats and the Bavarian Christian Social Union) most effectively pursued under Helmut Kohl the elimination of the sovereign nation states of Europe in order to create the European Super-State. Kohl, whose brother was killed in the war and who once tore down border posts between France and Germany, repeatedly used the same rhetoric (about German “destiny”, the “European Train” and Europe “setting the points”) used by the Nazis. His corporatist/fascist bigotry was best summed up in his words “Might is right in politics and war”. A week after leaving office he made a high profile visit to the Vatican, whose own thousand year aim (and historic enmity to Orthodoxy and European nation states) is being realised in the structures and power of the European Union.
German and Austrian Conservatives and Rome have always shared one great enemy in the centre of Europe – the Orthodox, Slav Serbs. The break up of Yugoslavia – created out of the defeat of Germany and Austro-Hungary in the First World War – was planned by the German Christian Democrat Government in the 1980s. The creation of the clerical Catholic State of Croatia had been the long term aim of the Vatican – which had had intimate relations with Croatia’s wartime fascist regime. Both powers have exploited the Muslim enemies of the Serbs, particularly in Bosnia and Albania – and of course among the Muslim population of Kosovo. The latter were throughout the 20th century no more than 50% of the Kosovo population. But after the effective terrorist war waged by the Albanian Kosovo KLA, the Blair/Clinton/Kohl illegal war against Yugoslavia and the incompetent “peace keeping” of the United Nations’ KFOR troops most Serbs have now been driven out of their historic homeland in Kosovo just as they were driven out of the Krajina (border area of Croatia).
Just as German politicians are now more open and aggressive about their true aims for “German Europe” so their increasing success in Yugoslavia gives them the courage to admit their long planned aims in Kosovo. In this article from our friends at german-foreign-policy.com Helmut Kohl’s former governing parties, CDU/CSU, call for the “independence” of Kosovo. In other words the secession of Kosovo from Serbia and its complete hand-over to the murdering regime which has driven the Serbs (not to mention Jews and gypsies) out of another of their homelands. This is a bit like Germany financing, say, French Muslims to take over Kent and then suggesting that Kent should become “Independent” of Britain!
Having spent so much time and money and arms undermining Yugoslavia and Kosovo it is not surprising that German troops assigned to KFOR have proved “impotent” to protect Kosovo Serbs and Orthodox Serb monasteries. Note how the German political class only calls for independence and “negotiations” now that the Serbs have been reduced (by Germany’s Muslim Albanian allies) to a small minority. Why did they not call for partition when UN troops arrived? Because then a more equitable division of land might have been achieved – and that was no good to the ethnic-cleansing, murdering, German-armed KLA!
The Munich based Centrum für angewandte Politikforschung (CAP – Centre for Applied
Political Research) demands that Serbia, once and for all, cede its southern province Kosovo and transfer all its sovereign rights over the region to the United Nations. In the meantime politicians of the opposition parties, Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and Christian Social Union (CSU) demand a ,,resolution of this issue as quickly as possible.” According to Michael Glos, CSU member of the Bundestag (lower house of parliament), the attempt to “bring together the hostile ethnic groups of Serbs and Albanians” is ,,fiction”: ,,Multicultural societies” are ,,a very difficult venture which Germany should not select as a model.”
CAP, one of the most important German think tanks in the area of foreign policy, demands in a just published study that Belgrade’s sovereignty over the southern Serbian province Kosovo should be ,,ended”.1) For this reason CAP demands lifting of UN resolution 1244 of June 10, 1999 and transfering ,,complete sovereignty” over the area to the United Nations. The Serb speaking minority in Kosovo would have to negotiate for its autonomous right with Pristina.
Meanwhile, the CDU and CSU opposition pleads for a ,,resolution of this issue as soon as possible.” According to the current position of the CDU/CSU faction, Berlin has to commit itself to ,,a comprehensible, realistic framework for action” which ,,would open clear prospects for all of Kosovo’s ethnic groups.” As early as 1999 the former foreign policy speaker of the largest German opposition faction, Lamers, (one of the most bigoted euro-federalists -ed) demanded that ,,the fiction” of a multi-ethnic Kosovo be dropped. At that time, Lamers pleaded for separation of Kosovo into a smaller Serbian and a larger Albanian part.
,,No more Serbs”
While Berlin’s opposition voices demand ethnic separation in Kosovo, the Serb-Orthodox diocese Raska-Prizren severely criticizes the German KFOR commandant, Holger Kammerhoff, and the German KFOR soldiers stationed in Prizren. The diocese explained that the German troops had not responded sufficiently during the anti-Serbian pogroms and had allowed ,,all of the remaining Christian-orthodox heritage to disappear overnight,” declaring: ,,What the Albanians did not accomplish during the era of Nazi Germany, they managed under the German troops of the so-called peace mission”. An Austrian Lt. Colonel reported after the pogroms: ,,Now, there are no more Serbs in Prizren.”
