Desecrated Icons in Post-war Kosovo

All these barbarous acts by the Albanian extremists have occured in the presence of UN and the International Peace Forces (KFOR), not in the time of war but of PEACE. The Serbian Orthodox Church and its Historical and Religious heritage are exposed to systematic destruction and extermination in the very presence of the most powerful armed forces of the world and in the very heart of Europe. The Kosovo Albanian gangs of looters, arsonsts, miners are mercilessly destroying the monuments which are of world wide renown and which have survived centuries of turbulent history. With such a systematic campaign against the Christianity, Civilization and World Culture Kosovo Albanian extremists prove that thier goal remains ethnically cleansed Kosovo without Serbs and their Christian monuments.
