A Reminder (by a peacekeeper in Sudan's Darfur)

Short break. Back soon.

A Reminder from Sudan's Darfur

Just a little reminder of who the victims of this conflict are. He is still smiling after his family had to flee after their village was attacked.

Not to mention recent wikipedia controversy involving Bosniaks and Serbs.

It is interesting how Serbs promoted invented word "Serpophobia" on the internet. First they introduced the word to wikipedia, and then thousands of other scrapper sites copied content from wikipedia, and now Google yields thousands of matches for this invented word. Of course, while Bosniaks wanted to do the same, and create an article Bosniakophobia, Serbs quickly jumped and voted "NO!". And of course, attempts to create Bosniakophobia article failed thanks to Serbian activism on wikipedia! They don't use wikipedia for educational, but for their nationalistic/politic purposes. It is sickening to see Serbian propaganda and lies poisoning Wikipedia. What we Bosniaks need to do is focus more on Srebrenica Massacre article which is under attack by pro-Serbian vandals and revisionists/deniers on a daily basis. We also need to stick together and create Bosniakophobia article @ Wiki.

Definition of Bosniakophobia (Bosnjakofobija)

Bosniakophobia is a sentiment of hostility or hatred towards Bosniaks and the concept of multi-cultural and united Bosnia-Herzegovina in its present borders. Its use in the English language has been limited. Bosniakophobia is widespread in Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Croatia.

One of the most notable manifestation of Bosniakophobia is the denial of 1995 Srebrenica Genocide in which Serb forces slaughtered over 8,000 Bosniaks in U.N. designated "safe" enclave of Srebrenica.
