Reckless EU and NATO could ignite civil war in Macedonia

By Ordan Andreevski - posted Friday, 5 May 2017


The EU, the Trump administration and NATO need to be extremely careful about welcoming the news that Talat Dzaferi, a proven Albanian Islamic Terrorist from 2001, has been illegally declared as the new Speaker of the Macedonian Parliament.

This development could ignite a new civil war in the Republic of Macedonia, the wider explosive Western Balkans and the European continent especially if Putin's Russia and others wade into the conflict.

It seems that the EU and NATO are continuing with their disastrous policy of undermining legitimate and peaceful states in the Balkans by supporting the creation of a Greater Albania. This dangerous initiative seeks to integrate Albania with Kosovo and parts of Macedonia, Greece and Monte Negro.

In World War II, Hitler's Germany also encouraged the creation of a fascist Greater Albania by arming extremist Albanian Muslims and using them to fight their deadly war against innocent people in occupied Yugoslavia.

In the 1980's and early 1990's the EU and NATO sadly supported Albanian ultra nationalism and terrorism by funding their war campaign and providing them with intelligence and military training for the creation of an independent Kosovo. After 72 days of indiscriminate bombing of Serbia's people and infrastructure, the EU and NATO forced the citizens of Serbia to live with the reality of a new illegal territory of Kosovo which is still not recognised at the UN.

All western media and intelligence agencies are fully aware that Kosovo has become a hotbed for radical Islamic terrorism including Al Qaeda and IS. It a major centre for human and narcotic trafficking, illegal arms and all other forms of criminal activity across Europe. Despite this, Merkel's Germany is helping arm the new Army of Kosovo to replace the KLA.

In 2001, the Kosovo Liberation Army, with the blessing of the EU and NATO invaded the Republic of Macedonia and started a civil war. Instead of stopping and condemning this dangerous and deadly activity, the EU and NATO coerced the Republic of Macedonia to sign a peace accord with the Islamic Terrorists under the Ohrid Framework Agreement (OFA). The OFA set the stage for creating a disastrous parallel Albanian administration in Western Macedonia. It gave Albanians in Macedonia unprecedented access to power in local and central government as well as funding for jobs in the civil service, Albanian educational institutions, extensive use of Albanian language in the parliament and the court system and media platforms. The Albanian Parties in Macedonia were also routinely made coalition partners with Macedonia's major political parties such as VMRO-DPMNE and the social democrats SDSM.

At the same time, the Albanian Parties that represent less than 17% of the population, did not recognise the Macedonian President and Commander-in-chief, the national flag, the Macedonian constitution, sovereignty and language and continued to push for more and more rights without any reciprocal obligation to the Republic of Macedonia.

At the last central government elections in Macedonia held in December 2016, there was extensive foreign interference in the democratic process. The Soros Foundation acted in concert with the outgoing Obama Administration and funded the Social Democrats and the Albanian political parties. The election saw the ruling VMRO-DPMNE win 51 seats, SDSM 49 seats and Albanian political parties with 20 votes. President Ivanov awarded the mandate to VMRO-DPMNE to form a government in coalition with one or more coalition partners from the Albanian Parties.

In January 2017, the Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama convened the major political parties from Macedonia and the Prime Minister of Kosovo in order to launch the so called 'Tirana Platform'. This wicked platform obliged the Albanian Parties of Macedonia to use their balance of power in the Macedonian Parliament in order to make Albanian the second official language of Macedonia and to change the flag, the constitution and the legitimate name of the Republic of Macedonia.

This post election political blackmail caused VMRO-DPMNE to return the mandate as it rejected the Tirana Platform which came as part of the dirty political deal. This provided the SDSM with a unique opportunity to form a coalition with the Albanian parties and their Tirana Platform. This development enraged a large percentage of Macedonia's multicultural citizenry to protest for 60 days in front of the Macedonian Parliament in order to force the rejection of the Tirana Platform by all sides. Protest were also held across the world including Australia.

On 27 April 2017, enraged protesters entered the Macedonian Parliament and assaulted MPs from the SDSM and the Albanian political parties who had declared that Telat Dzaferi is the new Speaker of the Assembly and that a reformist government will be created despite the legitimate concerns of President George Ivanov and over 50% of Macedonians who reject the Tirana Platform which has the potential to ignite a civil war in Macedonia.

The EU, USA and NATO have been urging Macedonia to let democracy run its course without acknowledging the fact that the new Speaker of the Macedonian Parliament is a bona fide islamic terrorist and how the Tirana Platform will give birth to a new geo-strategic power struggle and cause a deadly civil war like Syria.

The EU and USA are highly hypocritical in demanding Macedonia to accept the known Islamic Terrorist as the Speaker of the Parliament and the Tirana Platform when they would never accept such a development.

Who needs enemies when a small democracy like Macedonia has spent 25 years of blood and treasure pursuing EU and NATO integration and then finds that during each step of the way it has been deceived, blackmailed, delegitimised and now threatened with dis-integration.
