Reader comment on item: "[Symposium] On the Strip: Where To Go from Gaza?"

Submitted by oblilic (United States), Jun 29, 2006 at 21:38

The one theatre of conflict between Islam and the West keeps getting passed over. The Al Quaeda influence is present in both Bosnia and Kosovo. But since the Serbs are such supposedly bad guys, we keep forgetting that Bin Laden received a Bosnian passport in 1993 from the Bosnian Muslim leader, Alija Izetbegovic. For some reason we cling to a simplistic, Milosevic centric view of the Balkan conflicts when they are not that dissimilar from Kashmir or the Holy Land.
