Srečanje s predsednikom Republike Srbske Miloradom Dodikom, govorila sva o problematiki njegove države in širše okolice.
“The Serb Republic Should Get Out of Bosnia”
On September 28 a team of West European parliamentarians and politicians held a press conference in Banja Luka, the capital of the Republika Srpska, at the end of their fact-finding mission ahead of the general election in Bosnia and Herzegovina scheduled for October 7.
The consensus among the five panelists was that foreign tutelage over Bosnia-Herzegovina was undemocratic, that the country itself was deeply dysfunctional, and that the Serb Republic should be able to secede and declare independence in accordance with the will of its people.
The first speaker at the conference was a former Freedom Party deputy of the Austrian Parliament, Johannes Hübner, who emphasized that it is essential to uphold and respect the Dayton peace agreement. He said that the Europena Union claims democracy as one of its core values, and that it should accordingly respect what the people seek – and not what some high international representatives want. According to Hübner, if the EU respect the will of all constituent nations in Bosnia and Herzegovina, it will be possible to reach a lasting solution fairly soon. On the other hand, he warned, if the EU continues to push for a more centralized state – as the OHR has done for years – then nothing will change in the next quarter-century.
Honorary Belgian senator and Flemish Alliance deputy Frank Creyelman declared his total sympathy with the desire of the Serb people to get out of “the monstrosity known as Bosnia and Herzegovina.” Creyelman said that the same EU bureaucrats who want to keep the Serbs inside “Bosnia” also impose Muslim immigration on their own people. They can do so, he said, because they live in a protected bubble and don’t have to endure the consequences of their actions. Creyelman concluded his remarks by saying that the Serbs should enjoy the right to quit Bosnia just as the Flemish people should enjoy the right to quit Belgium, an equally artificial country.
Zmago JelinčičPlemeniti, who heads the Slovenian National Party in his country’s parliament, was categorical in his assessment that the Republika Srpska should be independent and that it has every right to become independent. Jelinčič took note of the fact that the constitutional framework agreed in Dayton has been continuously violated by foreign meddling, which has resulted in the abrogation of 90 percent of the guaranteed rights of the Republika Srpska. He illustrated the absurdity of Bosnia-Herzegovina with the example of its constitutional court, composed of two Serbs, two Croats, two Muslims and three foreigners – with the result that the Muslims always have the majority. Jelinčičconcluded that the EU/US preference for the Muslims must end, now that everyone sees what this means for the threatened European culture and for the very survival of Europe.
Italian Senator Antonio Razzi expressed his regret that the slogan “live and let live” is not being applied to Bosnia and Herzegovina, where the Serbs are denied the right to self-determination. His compatriot Luca Bellotti, former undersecretary for agriculture in Berlusconi’s last government, said that he believes the Serbs should be treated as a partner by the EU, and not as a party to be pressured. Both have expressed hope that the current RS President Milorad Dodik will be successful at the forthcoming election.
