Default ENEMY OF THE STATE Cesic Rojs Still A National Threat For USA!



Some ten days ago, the USA renewed its black list of persons, organisations and companies which represent a threat for American national security. According to the Bosnian media, the 1,000-page report includes 11 entries from Croatia, 70 from Serbia and 1,152 from Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Those enlisted are banned from entering the United States of America and any sort of actions within their borders. Furthermore, the USA has the right to arrest them all if they ignore the ban.

The American black list includes Croatian general Ljubo Cesic Rojs, who is stated as a citizen of Bosnia-Herzegovina. Others included are war criminals Ratko Mladic and Radovan Karadzic.

Ljubo Cesic Rojs was encompassed by the list in 2003, when Ante Gotovina and Ante Jelavic were also considered unwanted.

The list includes names, addresses and passport numbers of some 20 BH citizens, but mostly, those who recently attained BH citizenship are in question. Names and addresses of humanitarian organisations were also included, which sided Al Qaida, according to evidence.

how jewish, you are now avoiding to reply on posts, by changing the topic from "jasenovac" to a ominous "photo"...

first of all, the source of the picture is unknown

2nd it appeared the first time after the war, in the various anticroatian campains, started by your friends the "jugoslavian"/servian bolsheviks in "yugoslavia"... to show how evil and fasistic Croatians are, and to blame us for a imaginary "genocide" commited against servs...

3rd the persons on the pictures are uknown,

4th the unit insignias arent readable...

my tip for you, cut your miserable moralizing, because its pathetic, and you sound like some fucking jew, when he cries about the holohaux...

ps. even the picture wasnt a fake, i wouldnt give a shit about it, cuz that dead serv was in a member of CHETNIKS, and killed other WHITE MAN (CROATS), and ethnicly cleansed our territorys from non-servian population (under the protection of their italian masters), with the sole purpose to create Great Servia, on CROATIAN SOIL!

So fuck you, you degenerated jewish bolshevik!

PLITVICE LAKES, CROATIA – Several thousands of visitors to the Plitvice Lakes national park who arrived from all over Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina really enjoyed themselves looking at the beautiful winter scenes with 30 centimetres of snow covering the ground.

Several hundreds visitors decided to walk on the snow-covered trails around the Lower Plitvice lakes. They were thrilled by the fairytale-like landscape.

The amazing ice sculptures the waterfalls created will last for at least another month.

Default Adriatic Sea In Croatia Of High Quality

After a 12-year study of monitoring the Adriatic Sea, the results are more than satisfying and meet high criteria


Croatian Ministry of Environmental Protection, Physical Planning and Construction has published a `Report on the quality of the sea at Croatian Adriatic beaches in 2008` on its website and a Brochure on the quality of the sea in 2008, according to which the Adriatic Sea in Croatia is of high quality.

The study was conducted on 890 points, out of which 1.24 percent were marked as moderately polluted sea, while none were assessed as highly polluted sea, which means the sea suitable for swimming in Croatia is of high quality and meets the rigid criteria of the Provision on quality standards of the sea at sea beaches.

Programme began 12 years ago

This programme began nearly 12 years ago and so far, it has been retouched, adjusted and altered. The study was financed from the budget of coastal counties. The sea water examinations were conducted by authorised laboratories, the Ministry`s website claims.

The Croatian coast is nearly 6,000 kilometres long, while sandy and pebble beaches represent 5.4 percent of the Croatian Adriatic coast.

Default Shouting ‘For Homeland, Ready!’ Is Not Patriotism

People had been killed with that being shouted and we in Croatia want to develop a spirit of cooperation and tolerance, PM Sanader said.
ZAGREB, CROATIA – During a government discussion about a new law on preventing riots at sporting events, Croatian Prime Minister Ivo Sanader commented on very frequent shouting at matches: “For the Homeland, Ready!”, saying there was nothing patriotic about that type of cheering. It could have been considered patriotic in some past times, when the Pavelic regime (1941-1945) killed people of other nationalities, religions and races, even people of the same nationality.

- People had been killed with such a cry and we in Croatia want to develop a spirit of cooperation and tolerance – Sanader said, adding that, unfortunately, that cry fell under the usual iconography at sporting matches. Regarding the law on preventing riots at sporting events, Sanader said that the new amendments to the law envisage some new powers to police officers and guards, such as testing fans for alcohol while they are still on their way to the stadium or sports hall.

- Police and guards will be able to apply breathalysers on all people whom they suspect are under the influence of alcohol, not just at the entrance of the facility, but also on the way to the sporting facility. Also, during away matches, all known troublemakers will have their passports confiscated seven days before the sporting event at the latest – Sanader said, presenting the law.

The new law also envisages that the most extreme offenders will, apart from having their passports taken away, spend the time during the match in police stations.

The government said that they expect the new law to finally put a stop to riots at sporting events which have so far cost Croatian clubs 750,000 euros, Vice-Premier Djurdja Adlesic said, adding that the national team and clubs in total paid as much as two million euros in fines

Default for esuls..

Croatia would be for an official reconciliation between Italy, Croatia and Slovenia concerning the horrors committed in Istria during World War II, said the Croatian president Stjepan Mesic in an interview for the Trieste newspaper “Il Piccolo”, reports the Italian agency Ansa on Friday.

Mesic said for the daily Il Piccolo that he endorses the act that would give honour to innocent victims on all sides, under the condition that Fascism is not raised to the level of those who were fighting against it.

“We have to admit the mistakes that all sides made in order to avoid turning to those that want a revision of history six decades after World War II, with which they destroy a unique chance (for reconciliation)” added the Croatian president.

Mesic’s words set the path towards the renewal of diplomatic relations in order to found a joint memorial ceremony that would be held in Trieste, which would be attended by the presidents of all three nations.

Plans for such a ceremony failed last February because of a dispute concerning the massacre in Fojbami, the Istrian pits, in which Yugoslav Partizans threw Italians at the end of World War II.

In February, the Italian president Giorgio Napolitano said in a speech for the remembrance of the massacre, that they were the consequence of the bloodthirsty Slavic hatred and plan of annex that ruled over the 1947 peace process that gained bad connotations of ethnic cleansing.

Mesic reacted with a statement that Napolitano’s words were full of open racism, historical revisionism and political revenge.

According to the claims of the Ansa agency, the communists tortured and killed 15,000 Italians in Istria.

Default Croatia To Access EU As Country With Lay Offs

The union looked back on the hypocrisy of private doctors, gas crisis, mass redundancies, high prices, taxes and charity funds
ZAGREB, CROATIA – Economic pessimism in Croatia and reduced purchase power of Croats will lead to lay offs, the Union of Autonomous Trade Unions of Croatia (SSSH) said on Friday.

- We are before the door of the European Union as a country with lay offs – said Mario Svigr, head SSSH economist.

Thus, the SSSH offers several proposals which would increase economic optimism in Croatia and the focus is not exclusively social, but companies without employment posts are included as well.

One of the proposals is the introduction of a moratorium on raised prices, taxes and income taxes, which was proposed by the governor of the international bank as a measure to fight inflation. Introducing a guarantee fund for small and medium-sized companies and announcing the construction of infrastructure projects would enable home investors to access projects.

We want to know who makes the clothes for the Croatian Army

The SSSH proposed the establishment of a clothing and food fun, in case the worst case scenario happens.

- We can`t allow every situation to surprise us again and again, we want to know who makes the clothes for the Croatian Army, which textile industry it is, and not for Croatian workers to be terrified with lay offs –president of the SSSH Ana Knezevic said.

She also looked back on gas supplies, saying Croatia keeps solving the same problem every year, from the start.

- Gas prices in relation to the citizens` purchase power is the highest in the world, many things are planned with gas in Croatia and gas is used irrationally. Things will only get worse – engineer Branimir Molak said.

Molak spoke of a gas export contract between Croatia and Italy, saying the price for the Italians amounted to 6 cent per cubic metre, while it amounted to 40 cents for Croats, without adding the 20 percent expensification.

He compared this contract with the one Croatia has with Slovenia on the Krsko nuclear power plant, which resulted in damages for Croatia amounting to 2 billion dollars. He also looked back on the sale of the INA oil company, saying it was worth 2 million more at the time it was sold.

When it comes to the health reform, the SSSH is exceptionally dissatisfied with the hypocrisy of private doctors, who used their patients as a shield. Spomenka Abversek, SSSH vice president for public health, says it is inapprehensible for the union to accept the laws and then the ministry to defend itself with the fact that the lobby of private doctors refused to accept them. She said that with these actions by private doctors, hospital doctors who work on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays will be additionally burdened, while private doctors will be sitting at home.

Default Dear Slovenians, We Do Not Respond to Blackmail

Europe us unifying. It is a millennium venture and Slovenia is not only hindering Croatia, but the venture which is in Europe’s interest
ZAGREB, CROATIA – Croatian President Stjepan Mesic said in an interview for the Slobodna dalmacija daily that Croatia should not burden themselves with Slovenians because that is not an issue Croatia can resolve. It is obvious, Mesic claims, that some people in Slovenia believe that Croatia is vulnerable because its goal is to enter the European Union, so it can be pressured and Croatia will concede to something it would never concede to normally.



But, dear neighbours Slovenians, this will not be so, Mesic stressed. The reason for this is, he says, in the fact that Croatia cannot allow not to have a border at sea with Italy, which is why we will not ease up on our arguments, just like the Slovenians will not ease up on theirs. But Croatia is proposing something that is completely fair, honest and humane to resolve the situation, which is for the two countries to turn to international arbitration, President Mesic said.

- The most logical option would be the International Court of Justice in The Hague because they deal with such issues. It would cost us nothing and Croatia accepts decisions made by that court! Can anything be more simple or clearer – Mesic asked and commented on suggestions that a three-member court comprised of a Croatian, a Slovenian and a third judge who would be chosen by the first two, decides on the fate of Croatia and Slovenia, stressing this makes no sense.

‘Europe needs us as much as we need Europe’

The reason for this is that something like this would be too expensive and would take up too much precious time. It would also be questionable how much international conventions would be applied in such a case, he said. Mesic reiterated that Slovenia’s conduct is not Croatia’s problem, but an issue for Brussels which should respond to the question how long it would tolerate Slovenia abusing Croatia.

- What is the logic in Croatia having to wait for the solving of one bilateral dispute to realise its strategic goal: entry into Europe! Let’s leave Slovenia to Europe and we should focus on our part of the task: meeting standards and all the necessary conditions! – Mesic said, adding that Croatia would not respond to any blackmail or ultimatums, since Europe needs Croatia, not just the other way round.

- Europe is unifying. It is a millennium venture and Slovenia is not only hindering Croatia, but the venture which is in the interest of the whole of Europe – the Croatian president concluded in his interview.

Default Fan hooliganism costly for Croatian football clubs

Croatian football clubs have paid 750,000 Euros in fines for fan hooliganism.

That amount does not include the 200,000 Euros that UEFA has fined Dinamo because of its fans’ use of torches during the 3 December game with Udinese since the fine has not yet become final.

Deputy Prime Minister Djurdja Adlesic announced the total during the meeting of government ministers, who approved a bill on football hooliganism that will be presented to the Croatian Parliament.

The bill gives the police as well as judges the right to stop football matches when hooligans are causing chaos in a stadium.

The bill also gives police the right to test fans suspected of having drunk too much alcohol and to expel them from stadiums if they have done so.

In addition, the bill requires hooligans who have been banned from attending Croatian matches abroad to surrender their passports to the Croatian police before such games occur.

Prime Minister Ivo Sanader welcomed the bill’s provisions as a step forward. He invited Croatian fans to support their team rather than to lash out against its opponents.

Sanader condemned the salute "Za dom spremni" (Ready for the Country), which was used by the "Ustase" or Croatian Revolutionary Movement years ago and has been used by some hooligans during matches.

Sanader called for better education of young people who were unaware of what had happened 60 years ago.

Default Osijek to donate laptops to all fifth-grade students

The town of Osijek is going to distribute 1,270 laptops to students in fifth grade in elementary schools next week.

Osijek Deputy Mayor Biljana Borzan said the town had reserved 3.6 million kunas or 490,000 Euros from last year’s budget for purchase of laptops for every fifth-grade student in the town.

The money will also be used to buy laptop bags, mice and USB memory sticks for the students. The first laptops will be given to students at "Mladost" elementary school on 13 January.

Borzan pointed out that computer education was extremely important, but, unfortunately, most students and most schools did not have computers, so free distribution of them was a good idea.

This year’s budget will have a reserve of five million kunas or 684,000 Euros for computers for next year’s fifth-grade students. Some 700 elementary school teachers in Osijek will also receive computers free of charge.

Borzan said: "Many teachers do not have computers at home, so we want to ensure they obtain them to enable teachers to have better contact with their students."

Austrian historian reveals Tito´s mysterious years in Moscow
By Ivo Scepanovic

Austrian historian Silvin Eiletz's book on former Yugoslav Communist leader Josip Broz Tito has been published in Croatia.

Book publisher Metropress claims the book, "Tito's Mysterious Years in Moscow, 1935–1940," is extremely important for understanding the modern political history of Croatia.

Eiletz's book is the first to reveal how Tito actually came to power in the Yugoslav Communist party and how 800 people paid for it with their lives.

The book includes documents about Tito's years in Moscow prior to taking over the Yugoslav Communist party, including letters Tito reportedly sent to members of Stalin's secret police.

Experience old-world Croatia in Texas
Adriatica, a 45-acre village at Stonebridge Ranch in McKinney, Texas, is a replica of Croatian town Supetar on Brac Island.

Adriatica, developed by the Blackard Group, features three-story villas featuring light grey and tan stones and rust-colored, clay roof tiles.

Blackard Group CEO Jeff Blackard said: "The villas at Adriatica, which is a replica of a Croatian seaside village, offer luxurious, high-end living with a touch of old world style at beautiful Stonebridge Ranch."

George Fuller, a partner in the Blackard Group and president of George C. Fuller Customer Homes, added the villas and flats at Adriatica offered people a chance to own custom-built homes featuring yesterday’s European charm and today’s modern necessities and conveniences.

The price of the villas ranges from 350,000 to 1.2 million US dollars.

Construction of Adriatica’s stone, seven-story bell tower on the shore of Stonebridge Lake will be completed within 60 days.

Young man gets 10 days in prison for driving without a driver´s licence
An 18 year-old from Istria has been sentenced to ten days in prison after continuing to drive without a driver’s licence even though he was warned by the police.

The Istrian police say they stopped him near Pula on Monday and warned him it was illegal to drive without a licence and later stopped him again. He was very rude to the officers and even threatened to attack them.

The police arrested the young man and took him to a police station and then to Pula’s misdemenour court. A judge sentenced him to ten days in prison, and he was taken that same day to Pula prison.

The man faces the additional charge of threatening police officers.

Osijek doctors warn children not to eat belladonna
Doctors in Osijek in eastern Croatia are warning children not to eat any part of the belladonna plant since it contains hallucinogenic and poisonous substances.

They say consumption of belladonna is most frequent among children in Baranja and Slavonija, where amphetamines are either too expensive or too difficult to obtain.

Igor Berecki, the head of the paediatric intensive-care ward at Osijek Hospital, says the hospital admits a few children with extreme hallucinations annually, the daily "Jutarnji list" has reported.

Three months ago, the hospital admitted a three year-old boy suffering from hallucinations caused by belladonna he had eaten while playing outside.

Last week, one man died from burns he suffered at a séance during which he consumed stew made from a belladonna plant in Karlovac County.

Symptoms of belladonna poisoning include a rapid pulse, blushing, vomiting and hallucinations. Large doses can lead to respiratory problems, heart failure and even death.

Czech EU presidency to support Croatian accession to the EU
The Czech Republic will support Croatian accession to the European Union during its six-month EU presidency.

Czech Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek said yesterday (Tues): "It is in our interest to open new chapters (in accession negotiations) with Croatia and to unblock the stagnation caused by Slovenia."

Alexandr Vondra, the Czech deputy prime minister responsible for EU affairs, added the Czech Republic wanted to accelerate Croatian-EU accession negotiations.

The Czech government believes the EU will be incomplete without full integration of western Balkan countries.

Slovenia has been blocking the opening of new chapters in Croatian-EU accession negotiations because of a bilateral border dispute.

The Czech Republic began its EU presidency on 1 January 2009
