Serbian President's Convoy Stoned In Kosovo

Kosovo Albanian prostesters threw stones at an armored convoy carrying Serbian President Boris Tadic as he marked Orthodox Christmas in the former Serbian province.

A crowd of some 200 Kosovo Albanians in the western town of Decani lobbed stones at Tadic's convoy, which was escorted by officers of the European Union's police in Kosovo.

Nicholas Hawton, spokesman for the EU mission, Eulex, said a number of cars were damaged but the Tadic entourage's vehicles were not hit.

The incident comes as tensions between Kosovo and Serbia have escalated since July, when Kosovo's government tried to stamp its authority on a largely lawless area of north Kosovo inhabited by minority Serbs.

Kosovo's 90 percent ethnic Albanian population gained independence in 2008 from Serbia, which rejects the secession.

Kosovo Albanians have proclaimed selfindependence in Serbia, they did not gain anything in 2008. The UNSCR 1244 still not ringing a bell? The independent state of Albania is next-door to Serbia's Kosovo. Wouldn't it be more correct to say that Kosovo Albanians have gained independence from Albania?

Because Serbia invaded Kosovo (with the help of Russia) and took it away from Albania. If Kosovo wants, of course it will RE-join Albania, its only the natural thing to do. Nowadays, Serbia is not capable of war (because tey were taught a lesson in 1998 by Europe and US) and all they want to do is cause trouble. The are a state full of war criminals on the loose and puppets of Russia.

Kosovars gained independence from Serbia in 2008 through legitimate means. Thankfully NATO is there to keep the peace through UNSCR 1244.

Long live Kosova!

Serbs who live in Kosovo are encouraged by the visit of Serbian President Boris Tadic, who spent Christmas with them Saturday at the Visoki Decani monastery. The monastery, located in Metohija, is the biggest and best preserved medieval monastery in Serbia, known for its 14th century frescoes. So I would suggest you educate yourself before making such ignorant comments.

And by "Serbs who live in Kosovo" you mean the thugs paid by Belgrade, because the normal citizens of Kosovo of Serbian ethnicity want to get on with their lives and not keep living in a limbo until this hack is re-elected President.

"the lawless north" That's funny,sounds as if you support throwing stones on Christians? And it's not just Tadic,Albanians attacked Serb civilians, Russians and all other Christians when they tried to reach the SERBIAN monastery (not like there's anything Albanian in Kosovo) for the ceremony.

Tashi is a criminal and you support him,thus you are involved in human,drug and organ traficing and many other crimes "the snake" has commited!

Kosovar Albanians are law abiding citizens who deserve the respect of all Europeans and Serbs.

I saw no Christians there. Only politicians tying to get re-elected and protect their investments as well diplomats doing their bits.

The church of Serbia is an insult to Jesus Christ.

Had this been the opposite and Serbian protesters threw stones at an Albanian leader, the EU, NATO and KFOR would have launched an entire bombing campaign on the Serbs again! Funny how one-sided politics are. Any other country would have sent their troops in if the President's life was threatened by criminals. Kosovo is Serbia!

Mike,
You did not threw stones at our leaders, you executed them, Nazi-style.
You also seem to equate throwing stones with the mass graves and ethnic cleansing that your army left behind in Kosovo.
Maybe you should look back once again and see why your country was bombed (not enough and a bit too late, but still deservedly).

The "lawless area of north Kosovo" and lawful stoning in south Kosovo? Articles published by "Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty: Free Media In Unfree Societies" are full of BIAS and MANIPULATION. I used to use this website as a source of independent news, but I am afraid this was my last visit here!

Is that cry me a river "Wall St. bonus blues". Wow, the Albanian underground in New York must be in some serious trouble waters. So, we have to listen to the degenarate, trigger happy NATO troops in crisis about their urgent need to divide one nation (in this case the Serbs) into as many parts as possible in order to keep your employment rate high.

Thank you so much for your benevolence. You people must be so proud of the mass-murderous affair against Serbia and Montenegro in 1999, and throughout ex-Yugoslavia in the 90's. Very thoughtful of you to keep adding insult to injury. I'm not so sure about the forgetting and forgiving part.

Also, the hack you're mentioning is on your payroll. Don't bet on the re-election bid. But, then this comes from a citizen of Serbia, and who gives a damn about our opinion, right?

vn from Belgrade,

Instead of playing the eternal victim, you should thank NATO for stopping you from committing a larger-scale repetition of Srebrenica in 1999.

And you are wrong about not caring what the Serbs think. Albanians and Serbs will keep sharing the same region and the same future so we do hope that you will see the light eventually.

I hope that one day in the near future that both Serbs and Albanians can live peacefully together in a united Kosova. The Albanians gained their independence from Serbia and now deserve to live their lives as they see fit and as mandated by the UN.

Let's put it this way: In order to substantiate his/her claim, could vn/Albania produce the title & No. of the Document by which Serbia has recognized the independence of Kosovo Albanians.

No need to produce documents, Kosovars and Nato won the war and therefore can dictate the terms of agreement.

Better luck next time!

For the vn/Albania's information: Kosovo and Metohia (in Greek, the "church"), still de facto belong to Serbia - isn't that what you've been trying to get all along - the territory and territory only? Gotch'ya. I thought you would never bring it up. The NATO and Kosovo Albanians can finally get off the bullshit ploys of "human rights, social issues, etc." Wish you had never had the chance to see free education... May your children wish for that.

As for "no need for documents", it only goes to prove the way of the Albanian business dealings. Unfortunately, in the International Affairs, especially with regard to matters concerning states, borders, secession issues, etc., without proper documentation you can have no legal rights.

Kosovo Albanians should stop dreaming the dream of Serbia giving up the UNSCR 1244 without somebody taking responsibility for its violation, hoping at the same time to be recognized by the very same UN and brag about its legality. Serbia is a very old European state, so it's high time you get serious in dealing with us.

The Albaninas and the whole lot of the international community never cease to amaze us with the ongoing contradictions!

Inregards to your comment: ." Wish you had never had the chance to see free education... May your children wish for that."

It is too late for my children or my wife, her brother and my brother, as they were butchered outside of Peja by the Serbian thugs you write so valiantly to defend.

I pray for all your wretched souls, but I will not tell you what I pray for.

I am sorry for your loss, although this may not be a great consolation to you.

I cannot name all the things I or my family have lost, or could have done in the past twenty years.

There are always at least two ways to do things: good or bad. But the choice is always ours.

For the mundane world, I choose to take the legal, paper documented way.

As for the soul, it must be out there somewhere, having fun with God.

Krzys, and just to illustrate further for our dear and kind-hearted liberals, like Ruben, what "liberation" of predominantly Muslim Albanian Kosovo from Serbia rule gave the US, here is the latest news of yet another attempted Jihadist attack against US in the sunshine state of Florida. And guess where the perpetrator comes from ? "Former Yugoslavia" and to be more precise--Kosovo. Or as the website Jihad Watch likes to quip "Another Misunderstander of Islam". And that's at least a 3rd attack (or attempted attack) where perpetrators come from now Muslim controlled Kosovo and they are NOT CHRISTIAN ORTHODOX SERBS.

There were also Fort Dix plot in 2007 that involved Albanian Muslims from Macedonia and Kosovo. There was a deadly assault on US Airforce Personnel in Germany last year by another Kosovar Muslim terrorist. Now there is an attempted attack by yet another Kosovar Muslim Terrorist/Jihadist against US on US soil. The US and other NATO countries under Clinton went to War with Serbia to prevent "ethnic cleansing" of Muslim Albanians. Under the Bush administration, the US was the first to recognize Kosovo as independent country. We in US can congratulate ourselves--we helped to "liberate" (or rather create) yet another Islamic terror producing state.

Sergey,

So by your rationale all Albanians deserve to be annihilated just in case some of them might be or might someday produce a terrorist, much like the Serbs did in Bosnia and Kosova?

Good thing the US and NATO didn't adopt that philosophy when bombing Serbia to stop the mass murders in Kosova.
