Friends of Syria

The US Embassy in Kosovo has published a photo on their Facebook page which includes the terrorists FSA flag. The article is to invite students from around the world to travel to the US and take part in the Benjamin Franklin Transatlantic Fellows Summer Institute.

The hypocrisy of the Ambassador to Kosovo Greg Delawie who has posted this image straight after a post of him meeting with the Grand Mufti in Kosovo talking about extremist groups.

Even though Donald Trump wants to stop Muslims from certain countries travelling to the US, it seems they are quite happy to invite terrorists. This photo openly shows that the US Ambassador to Kosovo Greg Delawie is supporting terrorist groups.

A reminder of some of the work of the FSA terrorist group, that the US is willing to allow into the US.

Please go to the Facebook page and comment about the US supporting and…

What Happened That Night

Albanian translation

Many of you have heard that the Kosovo government withdrew funding from Women’s shelters because of funding issues. The shelters were closed without warning in late December. Women and children were thrown out. Only one shelter in Gjakova was able to stay open. However it could not accept new clients. 65,000 Euros was given to the shelters in emergency government funding last Friday allowing them to reopen-for now.

In Kosovo, we are often inundated with political news. But we wanted to know how women and children and the people who work with them were affected by the shutdown.

According to Kosovo Police figures from 2014, there are 1,000 reported cases of domestic violence annually. 80% of these cases are women. Children and elderly comprise the rest of the cases. Usually the perpetrator is the male head of household. The shelter system is essential…

Hell Cannons – The Homegrown Horror of Syria’s Terrorist Invaders

The Rabbit Hole

The foreign mercenaries who continue to wage war against Syria’s civilians are using a variety of devastating weaponry, including improvised mortars known colloquially as “hell cannons.” Today, MintPress News speaks with a Syrian man who lost half his family to a “hell cannon” attack.

ALEPPO–  The U.S./NATO-imposed war and invasion of Syria has been going on for over six years now. Each day, it claims the lives of many innocent people. But until we speak to these individuals and hear their stories, they seem like little more than a statistic. It is important to keep in mind that these people deserve to be acknowledged as fellow human beings. When we tell their stories, we can relate to them that much more easily.

Syrians have families, just like the rest of us – except many of these…

Syrian child who survived Saturday’s terrorist massacre is ignored by malignant msm

Families hold Ahrar al Sham, Nusra, Qatar, and Turkey responsible for failing to protect and secure the safety of their families.  For two days the ‘militants’ procrastinated, keeping families on the buses with little food, water, and exhausted, delaying the evacuation.  In the chaos of the bombing, a large number of their relatives have been kidnapped/gone missing and they have no news of their whereabouts.

Warmonger McCain in the Balkans – Will Serbia be another Ukraine

Friends of Syria

Whenever John McCain travels outside the US, you can guarantee trouble will follow.

Following the recent elections in Serbia of Aleksandar Vucic, the Serbs have taken to the streets to demonstrate, unhappy with the election result.

Demonstrations all over Serbia – Balkan Insight

McCain is in Serbia to make sure that Vucic will continue talks with Kosovo, so that they can rush Serbia into the EU and away from Putin. As the Cold War has never been over as far as the Balkans are concerned and the US has only one agenda and that is to get as many countries into the EU and NATO away from Russia.

The US controls Kosovo with the largest military base outside of the US and are presently building a new Embassy which could possibly one of the biggest they have. Kosovo belongs to the US as far as they are concerned and they see…

Interconnection lines Albania – Kosovo and Belgrade blocked indefinitely

Deadline set for Serbia, 31 December 2016 was breached and Serbia is expected to have consequences of this violation, while Albania and Kosovo are paying around 70 million euro loan for an interconnector that has not worked a single day.

Line interconnection of electricity between Albania and Kosovo was unveiled with fanfare in the presence of the two prime ministers and many other officials last June, after many years of delays in design and construction, but political disagreements between Serbia and Kosovo make it impossible to put in this line of work causing significant losses to the transmission operators and blocking the development of the common energy market between Albania and Kosovo and beyond, the common market of the entire Balkans.

Deputy Director of the Energy Community Secretariat in Vienna Dirk Buschle told BIRN that the problem is political and not technical and does not currently see a way out.

“This line can not be put into operation. This is a political problem and we are not happy about it. The issue will be dealt with again for discussion at the Summit of Trieste in July 2017, “said Buschle.

Secretariat of the Energy Community based Vienëështë international organization that coordinates and oversees the implementation of the Treaty of Athens, the treaty adopted in 2015 by which the countries of the European Union and the Balkan countries of the region of the Black Sea, have agreed create a common energy market, as part of the integration process of the region in the European common market.

Angel Zeqo, director of Operator Transmission of Energy (OST) public company that owns the lines of high voltage, said that his company has annual loss in revenue arrears of at least 500 thousand euros from the failure to work this line while also plan to optimize the operation of the power system of Kosovo and blocked due Shqipërisëështë line.

“If we sell the line capacity of the common market, the revenues generated would be about 500 thousand euros,” said Zeqo.

“The problem is technically simple,” he added.

Kosovo must obtain a broadcasting code by ENTSO-E, but not recognized as a control zone by ENTSO-E. Serbia has asked Kosovo to recognize the Serbian operator of energy distribution in the north of Kosovo in exchange for recognition of Kosovo Transmission Operator as a separate entity.

ENTSO-E is the European Network of Transmission Operators for Electricity and responsible for the operation of the single market in electricity.

No punishment for Serbia

Serbia ndërkohëështë determined by the Energy Community as a breaker of rules that it itself has signed for the creation of a common market, known as Package II Energy . Last October, the Ministerial Council of the Energy Community found violations by Serbia and set a deadline of December 31, 2016. Theoretically, the Energy Community Secretariat should propose sanctions for Serbia in the Council of Ministers, but by Buschle, can be of a political nature and therefore not very efficient.

The interconnection line between Albania and Kosovo, aimed at simultaneously increasing energy security and creating the conditions Albania to optimize the operation of power systems of Albania and Kosovo. In the event that the line would function, Albania could benefit from improving the efficiency of utilization of hydropower and Kosovo would benefit from improving the efficiency of utilization of coal power plants.
