Bijeljina

Guard paramilitary forces on Bijeljina. The attacks soon spread to Foča, Zvornik, Bosanski Šamac, Vlasenica, Prijedor, Brčko (Brčko (city)), and was punctuated by the blockading of the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo to the southwest. Non-Serbs had their property confiscated, were deported en masse, and many men of military age or of political, community, religious or cultural importance were murdered on sight or in mass executions in villages such as Kozarac, Gornja Grapska in Doboj, the Hotel Posavina in Brčko, the Crkvina warehouse in Bosanski Šamac, and detention centers such as the Brčko Partizan (Partizan Belgrade) sports hall. Many other non-Serb men were interred at infamous concentration camps such as Omarska (Omarska camp) and Keraterm (Keraterm camp), while the women, children and elderly fled south toward the towns of Srebrenica and Žepa.


Srebrenica

battalion, launched a massive simultaneous assault, starting with the attack by the Serb Volunteer Guard paramilitary forces on Bijeljina. The attacks soon spread to Foča, Zvornik, Bosanski Šamac, Vlasenica, Prijedor, Brčko (Brčko (city)), and was punctuated by the blockading of the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo to the southwest. Non-Serbs had their property confiscated, were deported en masse, and many men of military age or of political, community, religious or cultural importance were murdered on sight or in mass executions in villages such as Kozarac, Gornja Grapska in Doboj, the Hotel Posavina in Brčko, the Crkvina warehouse in Bosanski Šamac, and detention centers such as the Brčko Partizan (Partizan Belgrade) sports hall. Many other non-Serb men were interred at infamous concentration camps such as Omarska (Omarska camp) and Keraterm (Keraterm camp), while the women, children and elderly fled south toward the towns of Srebrenica and Žepa. In 1995 Gen. Mladić plans another offensive in eastern Bosnia and takes it into action. The offensive succeeds due to the inaction of the UN peacekeeping forces. Serb forces take Dutch (Netherlands) peacekeepers hostages, and assault the towns of Srebrenica and Žepa, both designated 'safe areas' by the UN. Bosnian forces firmly believed that the UN troops would protect them from Serb aggression, hence they were totally unprepared. Both Srebrenica and Žepa fall to the Serbs. Over 8,000 Bosniak males were massacred in Srebrenica (Srebrenica Massacre), while the Bosniak population in Žepa was expelled. The UN's peacekeeping efforts in Bosnia have failed. After suffering much diplomatic humiliation at the hands of Bosnian Serbs, the United States begins bombing strategic Serb positions. Now the Serbs have turned the rest of the world their enemy; a joint Croat-Bosnian offensive (Operation Storm) drives most Serbs out of northern Bosnia, and the Serbs return to the negotiating table. Sacco came to Gorazde in the immediate aftermath of these events through the 'blue road', a narrow road opened by the UN peacekeepers that links sieged Gorazde to the rest of Bosnia. A panel discussion titled "Truth about Srebrenica (w:Srebrenica)" held at the law school at the University of Belgrade (w:University of Belgrade) yesterday almost turned into a physical fight between panel participants and several dozen protesters. Tens of thousands of people gathered in Srebrenica (w:Srebrenica) today to remember the massacre (w:Sebrenica Massacre) of over 8,000 Muslims, mostly men and boys, which happened on 11th July 1995. This is considered the worst atrocity in Europe since the end of World War II. In comments to the court, Karadzic said that murder of seven thousand Muslims in Srebrenica (w:Srebrenica), as well as the siege in Sarajevo (w:Sarajevo), was staged or made up in order to demean the Serbs.

Jewish Autonomous Oblast

that modern Israel is the first and only state of the Jewish people established in over two thousand years of the Jewish diaspora. A definition of a '''State''' (in the full and correct sense of the word) is: "...an organized political community occupying a definite territory, having an organized government, and possessing internal and external sovereignty. Recognition of the state's claim to independence by other states..." (Wikipedia) and thus only the modern State of Israel (founded in 1948) qualifies. Before that, even ancient Judea was but a province of the Romans known as Iudaea Province. As for the other "examples" in this category (all quotations are from the Wikipedia articles about the subject mentioned): 1) The Khazars were not a "state" in the modern sense of the word, rather they were more of a Middle Ages feudal nomadic kingdom: "...a semi-nomadic Turkic people from Central Asia, whose ruling class converted to Judaism...they and their tributaries controlled much of what is today southern Russia, western Kazakhstan, eastern Ukraine..." If only the "ruling class converted to Judaism" how does that make its people "Jewish" particularly since none of them survived as recognizable Jews? A supposed "Jewish State" without real Jews in it historically, is a logical fallacy and absurdity. 2) In Adiabene "...Its rulers converted to Judaism from Christianity in the 1st Century...The Queen of Adiabene at the time of the conversion to Judaism, Queen Heleni, moved to Jerusalem..." This does not make Adiabene a "Jewish State." 3) Ararat, City of Refuge is a small plot of land in the USA, how does that make it into a "Jewish State"? (51st U.S. state, anyone?) 4) In Himyar: "...The last sovereign Tubba Himyarite king, (Arabic: Dhu Nuwas) is often considered to have converted to Judaism if he was not simply Judaising..." The word "considered" is suspicious and is far from making this place into a "Jewish State." 5) Jewish Autonomous Oblast, aka "Birobidzan" an "...experiment that ground to a halt in the mid-1930s..." was also an integral part of the USSR and Russia, meaning it's not sovereign, and "the experiment was doomed from the start" and thus does not qualify as a "Jewish State" either. 6) Jodensavanne "was an attempt to establish a autonomous jewish territory in Suriname" (sic), and an "attempt" in a "territory" does not equal a "state" by any means. 7) The other entries in this article are about ancient people (Anilai and Asinai; Gudit; Joseph Rabban; Kahina) vaguely associated with some Jewish population centers, but not "states" as such. Finally, 8) Zionism refers to the political developments preceding modern Israel and to its present ideology. This category should thus be deleted because it is inaccurate and misleading.

associational formulae that would somehow preserve viable links between France and its African empire. For them, "independence" meant autonomy within some form of French political community, not complete rejection of France and all it had meant for them. This is not entirely surprising, as these leaders had participated in the Republic's birth, helped write its constitution and laws, and participated in its legislatures and political parties.
