Know your adversaries, part I

As a service to the public at large, and to the Albanian community in particular, I am posting the URLs of some of the most virulently anti-albanian websites on the 'net. Some of them are for individuals who are anti-albanian (and usually also anti-islam and pro-serb), some are for organisations that reflect such views. ALL of them are a potential threat and danger to the freedom and liberty of Albanian people, both in the Balkans, and in the diaspora. I've divided them up by political stripe; right, left, and other. In the near future, I will be profiling these folks as well, but for now, check these sites out-knowledge is power, especially when it comes to one's adversaries. (And if you feel so inclined, why not drop 'em a little "love letter", and let them know just what you think abou the "good job" they're doing? ;) )

Anti-Albanian or Anti-Any other group as a whole is WRONG and unchristian.

The following declaration sums it up pretty well:

DECLARATION

by Archbishop Prof. Dr. Anastasios of Tirana, Durres and All Albania

IS RELIGION TO BE ANOTHER VICTIM OF THIS WAR?

Long is the list of victims from the war in Iraq: women and children, soldiers fallen or about to fall in battle, the international economy, international legitimacy, the U.N., truth and justice, and many others - whether by direct or indirect means. Religion, too, is in danger of becoming one of these victims. Leaders of both sides have already used religious terms, by invoking God. In our time, religions continue to influence people, but do not determine the decisions of political and economic leaders. These decisions are made on the basis of different calculations and interests.
Religious consciousness, however, is called upon to resist war, so that religion retains its sacred role of peacekeeping, reconciliation, forgiveness and the healing of wounds. At the numerous interfaith conferences that have taken place of the the last few years, representatives of different faiths have agreed that religion has to bring peace and support peace in the world; that violence and terrorism -- individual, group, or state initiated -- are against the true spirit of religion; and they have condemned, in particular, invoking God's will to justify violence and war. At the same time, these participants have undertaken the responsibility to make the cries of those suffering from violence their own, and contribute their utmost in securing the freedom and dignity of every person and of all peoples.
The blowing winds of war must not sweep away the sacredness of religion, contaminating the hearts of people with bitterness and enmity for each other's religion. Much greater catastrophes than those caused by weapons of mass destruction could be produced by the incitement of religious intolerance. The radioactivity of hatred, enriched by the 'uranium" of relegious passion, will last long after the hostilities have ceased, for decades, maybe even for centuries - as was the case of the Crusades and "holy wars" in the past.
Those who believe in the "God of peace" (Rom 15:33; Phil 4:9; Hebr 13:20, etc.), and particularly those who have committed themselves to serving Him, cannot help but repeat insistently the supplication "for peace in the whole world", and strive to do whatever is possible to let justice and peace prevail on earth.

Those links you have given are not anti-Albanian. They are anti-KLA/UCK.
