Remember Srebrenica

Back in the Nineties, while I was watching the cable talk show, Phil Donahue and a Russian guy were talking. One of them discounted the rapes of Bosnian women in a shameless cavalier manner, as if the women (Muslim) meant nothing to him.  By the way, as a disclosure, I was an Atheist then, but was outraged and could not sleep, went to my office and set my fax machines through Mac to fax non-stop to them to cut the crap out.  The next day they stopped…. it was depressing… I can never forget the outrage I had felt.
Those were the bad times watching the massacre in Bosnia, Serbia and Herzegovina.  When I watched this video from Aljazeera, my blood boiled again.
We organize an annual event called www.HolocaustandGenocides.com  and had covered this event at that time. Christiana Amanpour’s documentary on the subject is admirable.
Dr. Peerwani from Dallas area had visited Bosnia and did the post-mortem on many and had a difficult report to share.
Thanks to Al-Jazeera for this video, way back in July 1995, around 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were killed in mass executions on July 11, 1995 by Bosnian Serb forces. This is where the bodies of those who have been found are laid to rest.
