Id Mubarak!

When I lived in Sarajevo I remember going to my usual Internet cafe and the TV was on. They were broadcasting the funerals of people recovered from hidden mass graves. I sat on a school chair and watched with some of the family who owned the place. It was hard. They knew people who died there. So there were tears.
The ceremonies on TV were lengthy. Something like 500 people were buried.
The day before, trucks loaded with coffins had passed through Sarajevo. The street was sprinkled with rose-water. People attached flowers to the trucks.
No people should have to endure this, but it's happening again, in Syria, in Palestine, in Iraq, in Myanmar.
When people aren't massacring each other, they are destroying the natural world.
Killing off the elephants and rhinos and giraffes and tigers and lions for no good reason.

Obligatory Vidovdan Post:

Basically the assassination was razfukana. It almost didn't happen. I often wonder how the world would now be if it weren't for this day 100 years ago.

I also wonder whether we'd have al Qaida if there'd been no T.E. Lawrence?

Ramzan Šerif

To any readers who are Muslim.

On USTREAM there are no Bosnian channels, so Novi Pazar is my default Balkan channel. They have some typical Ramzan programming. Fireworks and music:

Now I am watching 'the Last Ottoman'
