Zagreb - Former Croatian general Vladimir Zagorec, who was extradited from Austria on Thursday for trial on embezzlement charges, is one of the most decorated Croatian generals in history despite never spending a day on the battlefield. Zagorec, 44, a weapons buyer for Croatian forces during the Balkan nation's 1991-95 war of independence from Yugoslavia, has 13 medals including a medal for courage. His mentor, the late Croatian president Franjo Tudjman, who led the war for independence, has only nine, local media reported.

Zagorec is considered one of Croatia's richest men. The weekly Nacional estimated his wealth at more than 36 million dollars.

Despite only achieving a high school education before the war, he graduated from Zagreb University's transportation department after the war by passing several exams in one day. The university became infamous in mid September when almost 100 people, including 21 professors, were detained for selling university diplomas.

Zagorec entered the war in 1991 as a chauffeur but was soon promoted and began purchasing and smuggling arms. Being Tudjman's favorite, he soon became aid to the minister of defence and the head of the Alan company, which purchased weapons.

It is believed that he then stole 5 million dollars worth of diamonds given to Tudjman by Cardinal Franjo Kuharic, the head of Croatia's Catholic church. Croatian media has speculated that the diamonds were taken from Jews during World War II and handed to the church.

Zagorec, who retired after the war, has lived in Austria since 2000, making a fortune in the real estate business.

He was arrested in Vienna in 2007 after Croatia started legal proceedings against him, but was subsequently released on bail. Croatian prosecutors allege that Zagorec also embezzled money sent by Croats living abroad for the defence of the country.

He was arrested in Vienna again on September 26 after authorities deemed him a flight risk. He was flown to Zagreb Thursday and will appear in court on Friday.

Okay, how does a story about diamonds stolen from the Croatian president who were given to him from a Croatian Cardinal equal: "Vatican investing gold of Orthodox died in death-camps in wars against Orthodox"  Given that many European jewelers were Jewish, famous for being diamond cutters, why do you doubt that the diamonds were taken from the Jews by Ustashe or Nazis?

Because it's well-known that western media reports mentioning Jasenovac usually emphasize Jewish victimhood and "forget" Serbs and Gypsies. Most of the gold is from Gypsies, since Ustashe were digging their golden teeth.

Documentation about it were captured by U.S. forces when they occupied Bosnia back in '95 and taken to Washington to display it at Holocoust Museum - but it never appeared there.

BTW, there is a great chance some of the post WW@ bishopric rings is made just of that gold...so I'm wondering if it already shines on some crypto-Catholic-pseudo-Orthodox finger?

Sorry. I didn't see.

Because those diamonds were transferred by rat lines after ww2 to Vatican, along with Ustasa leadership, so they were transferred back to Croatia back in '90, when Vatican financed the last phase of genocide against Orthodox Serbs. There are articles about it in Croatian press now.

How would Croatian Cardinal have them otherwise?

I still don't understand the connection. The title of this thread (your own creation) is "Vatican investing gold of Orthodox died in death-camps in wars against Orthodox", and then added the comment "...while media reports about it as Jewish gold". Then posted an article that's not about gold but about diamonds, and when asked to explain the connection, you explain that it was because they were transferred by the rat lines......
So diamonds transferred down the rat lines back to Croatia somehow turn into Gold pulled from Gypsies mouths? Do other magical things happen around you?

Tripe. Gold teeth (i.e. caps and other dental work) could be found among ALL ethnic and cultural groups of that period, not just the Jews and Gypsies.

In those days, gold was often the only truly long-lasting way of fixing teeth, as other materials used to fix teeth were not as durable. Also it must be remembered that the gold in teeth is an alloy, often 15-20%, and not pure gold (24kt gold is very soft). So you need a LOT of gold alloy, and the means to refine out the other components of the alloy, to get "pure" gold which is the most valuable component, to make your millions. Ask any metallurgist worth his salt.

By the rat lines they were transferred from Croatia.

They were sent back by other channels.

If they were Jewish, Jews would have claimed it, as they claimed wealth from Swiss banks. They wouldn't have forget such a wealth. From Swiss banks they requested and got payment from Jewish individuals whom haven't had hairs. The same would be done with diamonds.

So there are only Gypsies and Serbs remained as a possibity. While not all Gypsies are Orthodox, they possessed mostly gold. In their golden teeth. That were dug out of their jaws. By Ustase. In Jasenovac. Documentation of which was taken by U.S. forces from Bosnia as a war loot. While Serbs in present-day Croatia was upper class, industrials and soldiers, for generations, so the greatest chance is that the diamonds are taken from Orthodox Serbs or Orthodox Gypsies.

About the miracles...I may have some stories, but I'm not in a mood right now.

Since Serbian victims in Jasenovac outnumbered Gypsies and Jews together about 9,5 : 1, should I attribute your omission of Serbs to ignorance or to malice?

Yes, about diamonds. Given by Catholic Cardinal Kuharic to Croatian President Tudjman. Kuharic got them from Vatican. And Vatican got them through rat lines.

Daughter of the attorney who defends the accused general who has stollen them is murdered a week ago. Press in Croatia is writing about it.

Good. We've got that sorted then. You understand that we are talking about diamonds.

OK, so the daughter of the solicitor of the general accused of stealing the diamonds has been killed.

You entitled a report about stolen diamonds as a report about stolen gold.

Well, technically, yes. "Heretic" is from the same Greek word we get the word "error" from. To be a heretic means "to be in error".

What do you mean give it a rest,we know our own history and what happened to our own people,by the evil catholic church's sponsored genocide against us.....convert or die....even when some orthodox converted they still massacred them they didn't believe it was true conversion......we have to forgive though it 's not easy,,but we don't have to forget...we will watch our backs ...vatican say's one thing and does another thing .....May all the popes after the schism, burn in hell power hungry monsters,,,,SmileyCentral.com" border="0
 Despite your well-known dislike for Catholics, calling their church evil and damning their popes to hell is inappropriate behavior for this forum.  If you want to argue against Catholics in a rational, civil, and charitable manner befitting an Orthodox Christian, you are more than welcome to do so.  However, spewing hatred is completely unacceptable.

Interesting. Undecided  How can you express in the same paragraph forgiveness and a burning desire for revenge?  Aren't these two sentiments mutually contradictory?  BTW, the next time you want to condemn Catholics to burn in hell, take that cross off your post.

So how does that cross you posted immediately after your condemnation of the popes to hell fit in?

Oh, wait, it doesn't.  It's completely antithetical to it.

Not to mention that there were pre-schism popes who were power hungry monsters and post-schism ones that were very holy.  Blanket condemnations aren't so good to make.

There is a suit going on that deals with the seemingly poorly worded OP:
http://www.vaticanbankclaims.com/
http://www.vaticanbankclaims.com/5AC.pdf
Which deals with the ongoing case against the Vatican and the Franciscan Order (of all people) in Ustase Croatians.  I can't locate the US government report on this.  On another forum from which I have been banned, there I posted links to the information.

Following is a message from Barry Lituchy. 

Dear Stella,

Our efforts must be extended to denying the Albanians their monument.

Although the Albanians murdered the Jews, Serbs and Romas of Kosovo and Macedonia [FYROM] during the Holocaust they have applied to be represented at the Holocaust park. They along with the Croats were arch Nazi collaborators. How can you honor Nazi criminals in a park devoted to honoring the victims of the Holocaust?  Very easily - it's Bitburg all over again. Even Eli Weisel couldn't stop that, and Elie Weisel I ain't.

I think it is reasonable to expect that the Croatian government is behind this. It is only natural that they would have put the Albanians up to this. Both Albanians and Croats have a vested interested in blocking our monument - and that';s what this is. It's brilliant on their part - they muddy the waters in the application process (by the way, I'm upset at the Biluses for not telling us about this!) by dragging in the fake-genocide of 1999. If we argue that Albanians as WWII Nazi collaborators don't belong in this park, then they will argue that Serbs should not be recognized in the park because they are guilty of genocide in 1999. So the Albanians and Serbs cancel each other out.  Nice move Croatia!  They can also argue that if jasenovac is to be recognized then so too must the genocide against the poor little Albanians. As we saw with the Jasenovac conference in 1997, the Croatian government intervenes everywhere where its interests are challenged.

You have to hand it to the Croats and Albanians, they have played a very shrewd hand against us. And I am sure there is a lot of other dirt swept under this carpet that has been hidden from us. We really need to know who the real opponents are in this match, because we could blow them out of the water if it were exposed. No wonder Kuhn is under pressure - there is a whole other army fighting in this war that we haven't even seen yet. But I hope  they come into view and we engage them soon. We can't win this otherwise. Again the legal approach proved to be decisive in this, because without a legal attack to pry open the facts of this case we would never have
found out that an entire offensive had been launched against our inscription. No one intended to tell us any of this until it was too late. We need to expose
what has gone on behind the scenes, including with the Congressmen and the Mayor's office.

Barry

Sorry, but this is as inane as those who believe the US Government was behind the 911 attacks

Could you kindly point to what exactly is inane? Namely:

a) that the diamonds were given by late Cardinal Kuharic to late President Tudjman?

b) that handover hasn't been covered by appropriate documents required for accounting?

c) that they were used as collateral for purchase of armaments back in '90 and '91?

d) that, due to b), once they were received back by Croatia after the payment of armaments, the accused General was able to take them from safe, because they were nowhere recorded?

e) that, because of b), the only logical explanation is that they came from Vatican, where they were placed in the first place through rat lines? Assuming:

e.1) there were no appropriate documents for handover from Vatican to Cardinal Kuharic, otherwise Kuharic couldn't hand them over without proper documentation as described under b)?

e.2) that they would have been recorded in some documents by Croatian state if there were some documentation about handover, and not hidden in pockets and safes?

e.3) that the only logical explanation for lack of documents is that the diamonds were hidden for half a century and not recorded in any books?

All of the above are general places and published by Croatian press. Well, except e.1), that nobody dared to pronounce, but is obvious.

Looking forward to your clarification,

Or, perhaps you meant "inane" the statement that documentation has been seized by U.S. occupation forces in Bosnia, allegedly to be exhibited in Holocoust Museum in Washington?

Quote
In the early 1990s, during the Yugoslav civil war, the former deputy director of the Jasenovac Memorial Area tried to protect the collection from fighting near Jasenovac by transporting it from a museum on the Jasenovac site to the Banja Luka archive in Republic Srpska, a portion of Bosnia and Herzegovina populated primarily by ethnic Serbs. It remained there throughout the 1990s, stored in conditions that contributed to the collection’s rapid deterioration.

In the summer of 2000, the United States Embassies in Zagreb and Sarajevo alerted the Museum to the collection’s presence in Banja Luka. A Museum researcher confirmed the report at the end of August, and negotiations began for the Museum to assume temporary custody of the collection to organize and preserve it. In October 2000, three Museum specialists were granted access to the archive to assess its contents and condition. They determined that work needed to begin immediately if the collection was to be saved.

The Museum reached agreements with the governments of Republika Srpska and Croatia, and was charged with organizing, re-housing and conserving the collection. With aid from the Department of State, the Museum arranged to receive the collection on October 27, 2000, via diplomatic pouch. Under the signed agreements, the Museum will return the Jasenovac collection by November 26, 2001, to the Croatian government, who will transfer it to the Jasenovac Memorial Area. The Museum will work with the Jasenovac Memorial Area and the Jasenovac Council to maintain the accurate history of the collection. In addition, the Museum is fostering a formal relationship between the International Task Force on Holocaust Remembrance, Education and Research and the government of Croatia.

Here is you chance, Monk Vasily, to show us where are these documents exhibited now. Or, perhaps you find sufficient just to label it as "conspiracy theories"?

What does it take for Serbs, Croats and the other peoplke of the Balkans to get it through their heads to stop teaching ancient hatreds to their children, which, every couple of centuries, results in the blood-letting and barbaric atrocities which characterise the region? Let's not forget thet the Balkan wars of the 1990s were triggered by Slobodan Milosevic's inflammatory speech on the 600th anniversary of the Ottoman conquest of the Serbs. When Marshall Tito (he was certainly no angel) died in 1980, many learned people predicted, with depressing accuracy: Give it ten years, and Yugoslavia will tear itself apart.

The Protestant and Roman Catholic Irish have sorted themselves out, and so, to a very great extent, have the Greeks and Turks. So how about it, orthodoxlurker and stashko? Are you big enough to stop this vicious cycle in its tracks within your own family, within your own household?

Meanwhile, I kindly ask you to leave us to figure out what this thread is about - either about conspiracy theories or about Vatican's investment. Am I asking too much from you?

Okay, how does a story about diamonds stolen from the Croatian president who were given to him from a Croatian Cardinal ...

(Underline in the above quote mine.)

Diamonds have not been stolen from Croatian President.

They were given as a collateral in an arms trade deal. Once the payment has been effected, the seller returned them to other contractual party, e.g. to the state company mentioned in the above article, whose director (that equals C.E.O) was now accused General Zagorec. He put them in the safe deposit box of the company. During time he realized that the diamonds were nowhere recorded, in no accounting books. No corporate, banking or governmental body was requesting them back. So once he was discharged from duties, he picked them with him.

That's why it was a legal problem to charge him so long. Someone must appear before the court to claim that these diamonds are his. And it should present some proofs about his claim.

Unlike gold, that can be easily melted, melting diamonds would transfer them into coal dust. That's why we have the trace of diamonds only, that were transferred from Vatican to Croatia, back in '90 and 91, to finance war for expulsion of Serbs (achieved in '95) as a final stance of genocide committed between '41-'45, according to the proclamation of Mile Budak (kill-off one third, expel one third, convert one third of them).

So you need a LOT of gold alloy, and the means to refine out the other components of the alloy, to get "pure" gold which is the most valuable component, to make your millions.

Could it make from 700.000 dead in Independent State Croatia? If that couldn't make that much gold from teeth, how about several dozen churches and some 26 Orthodox Monasteries robbed to nudity? Would it make it?

All of that transferred by rat lines. To Vatican.

Since gold can be melted, I wonder are there some cardinal rings made of it?

Sure, who doubts?

His post placing Pope in Hell was removed for he allegedly believe they are all there.

My post stating my belief about one particular Pope there, with the description of some accompanying signs, was removed for some other reason, I can't recollect exactly why.

So we don't doubt. It's just we somehow can't get it.

Try truth instead of falsehood.  For once.

His post condemning the popes to hell is still there for all the world to see.

It was later modified to condemn me to hell, as well.  If you're going to lie and claim that we removed the post, you might want to make sure the proof that we didn't isn't still sitting in public view.

No one will ever ask you to kiss the Pope's shoe... but we ask that you don't trample, spit upon, or shoot it, either.  The part of the post that was removed was another "hellfire condemnation," ironically just after you claimed to "not judge" RC's.

It's chilling to see the media coverage about the events, and unbelievable messages about the origin of diamonds, going that far to claim that they were actually deposited by the arms dealer as a guarantee for delivery Cheesy

In the case he is now best known for, he is accused of stealing diamonds that were brought to the defence ministry by a foreign arms dealer as his guarantee that he would deliver an anti-aircraft system to Croatia. Croatian media have also speculated that the jewels in question had, in fact, been stolen from Croatian Jews in the Second World War and kept in secret treasure vaults belonging to the Catholic Church for use in needy times for the Croat nation.

Quote
Mr Zagorec's trial is expected to go ahead. The missing jewels were allegedly used as collateral in an arms deal at a time when Croatia had difficulty raising international loans. Reports in the Croatian media suggest they were donated by wealthy Croats, and even the Catholic church, as a contribution to the war effort.

Quite an effort to cover the bloody hands of Va... err, he..., err, ... a tenderly-friend-of-some-owning-this-board-whose-shoe-I-wouldn't-be-required-to-kiss-in-case-I-ve-gone-mad-and-converted-from-Orthodoxy.

And we're still waiting to see proof that your outrageously loony interpretation of a news article, an interpretation that changes diamonds taken from Jews into gold extracted from the teeth of Serbs, has even a shred of substance to it.

Sorry, but this is as inane as those who believe the US Government was behind the 911 attacks

Could you kindly point to what exactly is inane? Namely:

a) that the diamonds were given by late Cardinal Kuharic to late President Tudjman?

b) that handover hasn't been covered by appropriate documents required for accounting?

c) that they were used as collateral for purchase of armaments back in '90 and '91?

d) that, due to b), once they were received back by Croatia after the payment of armaments, the accused General was able to take them from safe, because they were nowhere recorded?

e) that, because of b), the only logical explanation is that they came from Vatican, where they were placed in the first place through rat lines? Assuming:

e.1) there were no appropriate documents for handover from Vatican to Cardinal Kuharic, otherwise Kuharic couldn't hand them over without proper documentation as described under b)?

e.2) that they would have been recorded in some documents by Croatian state if there were some documentation about handover, and not hidden in pockets and safes?

e.3) that the only logical explanation for lack of documents is that the diamonds were hidden for half a century and not recorded in any books?

All of the above are general places and published by Croatian press. Well, except e.1), that nobody dared to pronounce, but is obvious.

Looking forward to your clarification,
1.  Can you provide outside documentation, such as these articles published by the Croatian press, to substantiate the allegations made above?

2.  Re. Your twice-stated phrase, "The only logical explanation is...":  How often it is that right after I utter this conclusion, I find that the REAL explanation is something totally different, and that I had been previously blinded to this!

orthodoxlurker,

If that's you adding tags with messages condemning Pope John Paul II to hell, stop it.  They have nothing to do with this topic, and they're inflammatory.  (I've already deleted the tags that appeared earlier.)

Yes, the holocaust of the Jews and the use of their diamonds to accrue wealth for their persecutors is horrific.

Well, my publ... err friend I did present proofs that the diamonds were taken from Orthodox, with 99% probability. All what's required for such a conclusion is knowledge of history and reading the facts logically, though I can't exclude 1% (or less) possibility that they are actually of Jews or non-Orthodox Gypsies.

Your argument to oppose it is relying on Croatian journalists' speculation that they belonged to Jews. And, of course, I'd be foolish to expect logic and knowledge of history either from you or from PtA.

Once we have clarified that, will you continue to denigrate the thread?

Let's look at your "proof":

Unlike gold, that can be easily melted, melting diamonds would transfer them into coal dust.

Hmmm. Whats the melting point of diamond?
I think it's 3550 degrees Celcius (6422 degrees Fahrenheit)....anyway.....

That's why we have the trace of diamonds only, that were transferred from Vatican to Croatia, back in '90 and 91, to finance war for expulsion of Serbs (achieved in '95) as a final stance of genocide committed between '41-'45, according to the proclamation of Mile Budak (kill-off one third, expel one third, convert one third of them).
OK. I still don't see your "proof" that the diamonds came from Orthodox Christians with "99% probability"....but anyway.....

Once we have clarified that, will you continue to denigrate the thread?
I think you're doing a good enough job of that yourself.

Disclaimer: Nothing I wrote here should be construed as an attempt to prove anything to PeterTheAleut or ozGeorge.

About whether diamonds belonged to Jews or to Orthodox (Serbs or Gypsies)

There is a trend to emphasize on Jewish victimhood only and to downplay victimhood of others. That quite applies to Jasenovac and Independent State of Croatia entirely. All what's required is to check statistics for Independent State of Croatia, official or unofficial, to see that number of Serbian victims outnumbered together Jews and Gypsies (both Orthodox Christians Gypsies and other) approximately per rate 9,5 : 1. Search google for yourself.

As one of the examples, here is an image



published here claiming Jewish victims, while it's apparent:

a) there are a number of victims in a rural, non-populated area, vithout visible sign of military fortification;

b) there is a payssant woman, standing there, looking at the bodies;

Since there were no Jews living in large groups in non-populated areas, they must have been captured and transported there. If they were transported, it should be a convenient place for killing. If that's so, what does that woman do, standing there? Is that a Jewess, wearing payssant dress, that was captured and brought there along with the victims? How come she isn't killed?

There is an obvious explanation. The bodies are from nearby villages, and the woman is looking for her husband, son, father, relatives and neighbors. And, by their and her clothing I conclude they are neither Jews, nor Gypsies, but Serbs. Convenently turned into Jewish victims either by ignorance or by malice by a Danish site educating on holocaust.

About the spoiling attitude

While, of course, we are not to mention what has been done to us, not to be perceived rude and unforgiving. Not to spoil ecumenistic love.

So, this image



of Orthodox priest in Drakulic, where the butchery was directly supervised by a Franciscan monk from Petricevac Monastery (that monastery where Woytila have had Orthodox Bishops from Bosnia alligned by occupiers when he was paying a visit in fraterly "love") Fra Miroslav Majstorovic-Filipovic a.k.a. Fra Sotona, before he became commander of Jasenovac death-camp, whom personally sliced one girl there, as he confessed as his trial, must be shred from interned, just likethe entire site dedicated to it was burried down, probably by quisling regime in Belgrade, to please their masters. Why would couple of hundreds thousands Orthodox victims stand as an obstacle to "re-union"?

There is a rumor about a special promise granted to us, Pope-not-loving-Serbs, that we will not have to kiss his shoe, neither we'll have to sing "Heil Zizi" aligned with other Orthodox. Others will do it on our behalf.

About Vatican role re: diamonds and gold
The most precise source (already posted by my brothers Orthodoc or Isa) seems to be

http://concordatwatch.eu/showtopic.php?org_id=890&kb_header_id=6151

Quote
The Holocaust survivors must try to prove that the Vatican Bank laundered the proceeds of the Ustasha genocide in Croatia in a similar manner. There is only one known witness to the Vatican and Franciscan money laundering: former US Army Counterintelligence Special Agent William Gowen. According to his deposition, Vatican official Fr. Krunoslav Draganovic admitted to Gowen that he received up to ten truckloads of loot in 1946 at the Franciscan controlled Croatian Confraternity of San Girolamo in Rome. Gowen also testified that the leader of the treasure convoy, Ustasha Colonel Ivan Babic, boasted to Gowen of using British uniforms and trucks to move the gold from Northern Italy to Rome. As for the Ustasha Treasury’s ultimate destination, Gowen concurred that it could have gone nowhere but the Vatican Bank. [16]

The Vatican Bank and the Franciscans have demanded that Gowen's testimony not be published, but a copy was obtained by the Israeli newspaper Haaretz which posted an online article in January 2006. It uses the evidence of this former American counterintelligence agent to accuse Montini, the future Pope Paul VI, of involvement in the laundering of money for the ratlines. According to the Gowen, a top Vatican official, Monsignor Draganovic, admitted being the mastermind behind the smuggling and deposit of the Ustasha Treasury at the Vatican bank. Draganovic, who was charged with overseeing Croatian affairs in Rome, reported directly to Montini. [17] 

There is a number of links at the bottom of the page, here are some:
http://www.vaticanbankclaims.com/update.htm
http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/670245.html

So, in spite of the accurate witness about the destination of Usasa loot, and in spite of clear reference about the diamons been handed over by late Cardinal Kuharic to late Croatian President Tudjman, I'm supposed to believe that the diamonds, unlike other loot, were deposited in "secret box" inside Croatia, or given by an arms-dealear as a collateral that he will deliver the arms in violation of UN arms embargo!

(Should I even dare thinking this, unless I'm able to convince PtA and ozGeorge, in all their ignorance and malice?!?)

Re.: possibility these are really taken from Jews, I don't deny it. There is a possibility, but very low one.

Of course, I should not pay the attention to the fact that there is only one witness appearing, while all the other ones are burried safely during the decades of systematic cover-up.

I'm at a loss whom is annoyed more - Vatican, the vanishing Empire that allied with Vatican, their puppets among Serbian government, or ecumenistic Orthodox?

Well, unlike all the others, the only chance I kiss a hand, vearing a ring made of golden teeth of Jasenovac victims, would be a hand of Orthodox bishop who got the finger from Roman Pope. AFAIK, there is only one such among Serbian Bishops until present.

I'm sorry to say that I am ignorant when it comes to Serbian history and the plight of the Serbs.  Please know that my heart goes out to every Serbian on our OC.net who has suffered, and whose family and friends have suffered.  I am slowly learning what has happened, but little of the real history made it into my history classes or into mainstream media, so I've had to learn where to look (any suggestions of places to read would be greatly appreciated).

As one of Greek heritage (and I'm sure many others on OC.net can attest to this as well), I can sympathize to some extent, as I have grown up with the stories of the atrocities committed by the Turks on the Greeks.  Of course these are a little farther removed, as they were longer ago.  Every time I hear a story about the oppression (for lack of a better word) that the Ecumenical Patriarchate and His All Holiness Bartholomew suffer at the hands of the Turkish government, it is difficult for me to remember the very things that I talk about on this board-- love, humility, forgiveness.  I know that there are many whose opinion of His All Holiness is not so great, but that is a topic for a different thread.  For the sake of making my point, it wouldn't matter if the EP was Bartholomew or anyone else, the Turkish government would still work against him.  It is a constant challenge for me to overcome the very personal feelings I have of anger and hurt at how they treat him (as my husband and I both have a great love and admiration for him-- my husband had the pleasure of meeting him and was touched by his love and humility).  It is a challenge... and his suffering is political and can't compare to the atrocities committed against the Serbs and the Greeks.  So, I can't even imagine what a deep and personal wound the Serbian Orthodox must feel.

That being said, I am, and probably always will be, in favor of ecumenism.  As I stated on other threads, I think that, no matter what those of other faiths (even Christian faiths) have done to us, we are charged by Christ to forgive, to love, and to spread His Gospel.  I understand that with ecumenism comes some difficult issues-- both doctrinal and historical.  But I believe that with Christ, all things are possible, and we will overcome them so that they may come home to Orthodoxy some day.  Respectfully, I don't think it is fair to condemn all Orthodox who believe in ecumenism because of certain atrocities committed by specific people to specific people (if I am misunderstanding and this was not the sentiment expressed, please feel free to correct me).  Nor do I believe in giving up on anyone, be they Catholics, Protestants, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, Muslims, or even Turkish Muslims.  I believe that Christ wouldn't give up on them, and neither should I.

Forgive me a sinner.

Forgive me, a sinner, for everything, specially for eruptive tone you've been hearing/reading these days.

It's not that I don't know what you're talking about or that I don't believe you. 

Pardon me? Are you the same PtA, whom said:

^ The big question, though:  Is Monk Vasyl calling inane belief in the historicity of the Croat genocide of Serbs, as you seem to perceive, or is he calling inane orthodoxlurker's particular conspiracy theory regarding gold/diamonds being extracted from Serbian teeth and invested by the Vatican?

Except that I never said that the diamonds were extracted from "Serbian teeth" - what about "conspirativeness" of a "theory" that it actually was a Vatican investment? Or am I dealing with some other PtA now? Will there be enough honesty in any of them to answer?

Do you honestly think that your continued efforts to repeat the litany of atrocities committed against you and your people will contribute ANYTHING for our salvation? 

Only to the extent it actually open the eyes to some rushing to "re-unite". But, regardless salvation, it may save some necks in future.

What happened to "forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors"?
Wasn't that a separate thread? Haven't I asked you to stick with the subject?

I just don't see why you even need to bring this up on our discussion forum. 

See, I usually avoid to do it. Except:

a) it was a news, contrary to your view:

Well, seeing that this ISN'T news, it certainly doesn't belong in Christian News now, does it?

b) I usually feel inspiration to do it when I hear statements of Mrt. Zlizloulas published by asianews.it (I guess you know what I mean; if you don't I'll give you a hint: we are at a turning point)

c) I'm compelled to do it in front of such statements:

Plus you sitting in judgment right now.  However, since we don't have a section entitled "OL's dumb conspiracies," Free for All will have to suffice. Roll Eyes

and such ones:

Try truth instead of falsehood.  For once.


Who is speaking falsehood and who isn't, PtA? Who is conspiracy theorist and who isn't? Eh?

Whom is asked to forget what he knows, while others will remember what they know? Eh, PtA?

Whom was looking at the tags of this thread for days, reading: "conspiracy theory", "hate", "non-traditional_Orthodoxy"? And that was quite O.K. with mods, unlike some other tags? Eh, PtA?


I realize this isn't the subject you love to hear. So, here is my proposal: Change the rules of the board. Limit it to Orthodox inhabitants of English-speaking world. Or to Western world. Or to ecumenists. Or to all but Serbs. Or whatever.

Hitler's close friend, Dietrich Eckart, told of overhearing Hitler showing off to a lady by denouncing Berlin in extravagant terms: ". . . the luxury, the perversion, the iniquity, the wanton display and the Jewish materialism disgusted me so thoroughly that I was almost beside myself. I nearly imagined myself to be Jesus Christ when he came to his Father's Temple and found the money changers." Eckart described Hitler as "brandishing his whip and exclaimed that it was his mission to descend upon the capital like a Christ and scourge the corrupt."

And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables.
--John 2:14-15
(Note, a scourge of small cords describe a whip.)

Hitler wth Archbishop Cesare Orsenigo, the papal nuncio in Berlin, 1935
On April 20, 1939, Archbishop Orsenigo celebrated Hitler's birthday. The celebrations, initiated by Pacelli (Pope Pius XII) became a tradition. Each April 20, Cardinal Bertram of Berlin was to send "warmest congratulations to the Fuhrer in the name of the bishops and the dioceses in Germany" and added with "fervent prayers which the Catholics of Germany are sending to heaven on their altars."

Most wars are justified on religious grounds.
Of course if a soldier felt uneasy about slaughtering others, they could always turn to a chaplain who would then patiently explain to them that killing is allowed by God and about the righteous morality of war. He might then give a few Biblical examples of God ordained killings. And then he might tell them that Jesus will forgive them and send them to Heaven if they should happen to die.

Note the Catholic Chi-Rho Cross to the right of the Nazi flag. Chi and Rho are the first two letters of the Greek word for Christ. The Chi Rho Cross, or warrior's cross, originated from the monogram of Roman Emperor Constantine. How fitting it appears next to a swastika.

Following the death of Berlin's Bishop Bares, Pope Pius XI unexpectedly selects Konrad Graf von Preysing, a little-known Eichstatt bishop, as bishop of Berlin. Berlin, the region for which he is responsible, now also includes the center of the National Socialist power structure and so requires a high degree of political skill from its ecclesiastical leader.

SMOKING GUNS

 Ludwig Muller, a Nazi sympathizer, and a candidate of Hitler, was elected to the position of Reich Bishop in 1933 as Hitler attempted to unite regional Protestant churches under Nazi control. Hitler did not practice separation of Church & State.

Although Hitler had problems with the Catholic Church and eventually wanted to replace Catholicism with his brand of Christianity, the very fact that Hitler wanted a united German Church proves that he supported Christianity.

Berlin, Germany, November 17, 1933.

Deutsche Christen (German Christians)

The Deutsche Christen (DC) became the voice of Nazi ideology within the Evangelical Church (the Religious Right of their day) and approved by Hitler. They proposed a church "Aryan paragraph" to prevent "non-Aryans" from becoming ministers or religious teachers. Most church leaders solidly supported the "Judenmission." Only a very few number of Christians opposed Nazism such as the "Confessing Christians" (a Church movement not recognized by the Protestant orthodoxy) headed by Dietrich Bonhoeffer. The support of Nazism by the majority of German Christians and German Christian leaders shows the danger of mixing religion with government.
The photo on the left shows Christian worshippers of Christ and Nazism on the march in front of the Berlin Cathedral. SS guards stand at attention. The head of the march shows members in party and SA uniforms while pastors follow in the rear.

Brate,

We don't need to reheat the tripe that the atheists serve on the links between Christianity and Nazism.  The site you link makes no distinction between us and the Vatican: for instance the Chi-Rho is just an Orthodox symbol, often found in icons (mostly in medalions carried by angels, why I'm not sure), and in icons of the vision of Constantine.

Some of the Prostestansts and the Vatican's priests collaborated with the Nazis.  Others did not (e.g. one who went on to become John Paul II), and plenty of Jews contradict  the image of Pius as "Hitler's Pope," including the former chief rabbi of Rome, who took the name of Eugenio in honor of Pius' baptismal name. The same with the Orthodox.  Some, like the Churches of Serbia and Bulgaria, fought the Nazis on every front.  Others, like some Romanians, joined forces with the Nazis.

I agree that the Vatican has a lot of explaining to do concerning Croatia, both WWII and in disintegrating Yugoslavia.  But we don't need to go off on tangeants that lead nowhere good while arguing that case.

As difficult as it may be to comprehend, anyone who has an ax to grind against Roman Catholics needs to drop that ax NOW!!

For in failing to drop the ax, one also fails to obey Christ's instructions to deny himself, lift up his cross and follow Him. (Mark 8:34-38)!!

Vengeance is a passion originating from Satan.  To walk as Children of Light, one has to put aside the darkness of revenge.  Our Holy Martyrs suffered far worse than the Serbs under the Ustashi, the Greeks under the Turks, the Arabs under the Muslims, the Russians under the Mongols/Tartars, the British Clergy under William the Conqueror, and so on....

Using History as a guide - if the nation of Israel was created as a consequence of the Holocaust, what do Orthodox Christians wish to gain by the atrocities committed by Roman Catholics.  If the Kingdom of Heaven is an audacity, what else do our Serbian friends want to see if not the literal "an eye for an eye?"

Orthodoc,

To say the Ustashe was supported by the Catholic Church is a bit much.  Certainly some Catholics were members and supporters, including some clergy, but that can hardly be claimed as official sanction by the Catholic Church.  The same claim can be made about some Orthodox in Romania and Bulgaria which were part of the Axis.  Can I therefore conclude the Orthodox Church supported the Axis?  Of course not.  It is ridiculous claims like these that make it appear people have axes to grind.

Then how come the Vatican still won't open it's archives regarding this period of history?  And how come so many Utashe members who were also Catholic priests ended up in South America (Argentia) with Vatican passports?

Letter to the Editor
The New York Times


Dear Editor:


Arrogantly Nicholas Wood's article, "Unscrambling the History of a Nazi Camp" was like handing Mr. Wood an egg beater as he did more scrambling than many  Holocaust deniers.  Calling this a "Nazi Camp" is a misleading distortion of the facts.  Jasenovac was a Croatian Death Camp run by Croatian Nazi collaborators who murdered their own neighbors. Your headline implies that this was another German Concentration Camp. 


In my 1997 book Jasenovac Then and Now: A Conspiracy of Silence, I document dozens of eye witness testimonies which place the number of victims at Jasenovac at well over 400,000 as early as 1942, including the testimonies of a number of German officers. Croatian revisionists who now place the number of dead as low as 40,000 or to an insulting high of 97,000 imply that there were no atrocities committed against the Serbs and Jews for the remaining 3 years of the war?   There were only 87 survivors of the Jasenovac Concentration Camp, named the "Auschwitz of the Balkans" by most historians.  These survivors place the number of dead in excess of 800,000.


One of those survivors was Antun Miletich, a Croatian.  Here is his 1948 testimony: "There is not a pen capable of describing the horror and terror of the atmosphere at Jasenovac.  It surpasses any human fantasy.  Imagine Hell, the Inquisition, a terror more dreadful than any that ever before existed anywhere, run by bloodthirsty wild animals whose most hidden and disgusting instinct had come to the surface in a way never before seen in human beings—and still you have not said enough."


The Jasenovac system of Croatian camps also included a camp for children run by Catholic nuns who used toxic soda to save bullets.  They put to death over 100,000 Serbian children under the age of ten years.  There are hundreds of documents to attest to these hideous crimes.  There are countless documents that also attest to the fact that 743 Roman Catholic priests were members of the Ustashi and personally murdered Serbs, Jews and Gypsies. Jasenovac was for a time, run by Fr. Filipovic-Majstorovic, a Catholic priest who admitted to killing "40,000 Serbs with his own hands." The 40,000 figure was used in 1991 by the late Croatian president, Franjo Tudjman, who was quoted in the Jerusalem Post on December, 1991 as saying,  "I am a doubly lucky man, my wife is neither Serbian nor Jewish."  His insistence that "only 40,000 Serbs perished at Jasenovac"  exposes the level of cover up of this genocide by the Croatian people.


Fr. Petar Brzica, a Catholic priest and camp guard at Jasenovac was nicknamed "King of the Killers." In a contest on August 29, 1942 to see who could kill the most Serbs in one night Fr. Brzica won by slitting the throats of 1,350 Serbs.
The 743 Roman Catholic priests who participated in the killing of tens of thousands of Serbs, Jews and Gypsies and the running of Jasenovac escaped Europe through the "Vatican Ratline" run by Fr. Draganovich, a Croatian Catholic priest who helped morons like Clause Barbe escape from Europe.  Those Catholic priests escaped to Argentina where they also escaped justice. 
I am the first plaintiff in a class action law suit against the Vatican Bank to recover $100 million in damages for the Vatican's participation in these war crimes and money laundering the proceeds from their Serb, Jewish and Roma victims.  Vatican lawyers have three times tried to get this case thrown out of court.  The Supreme court has rejected their claims.

In my 1997 book Jasenovac Then and Now: A Conspiracy of Silence, I document dozens of eye witness testimonies which place the number of victims at Jasenovac at well over 400,000 as early as 1942, including the testimonies of a number of German officers. Croatian revisionists who now place the number of dead as low as 40,000 or to an insulting high of 97,000 imply that there were no atrocities committed against the Serbs and Jews for the remaining 3 years of the war?   There were only 87 survivors of the Jasenovac Concentration Camp, named the "Auschwitz of the Balkans" by most historians.  These survivors place the number of dead in excess of 800,000.


One of those survivors was Antun Miletich, a Croatian.  Here is his 1948 testimony: "There is not a pen capable of describing the horror and terror of the atmosphere at Jasenovac.  It surpasses any human fantasy.  Imagine Hell, the Inquisition, a terror more dreadful than any that ever before existed anywhere, run by bloodthirsty wild animals whose most hidden and disgusting instinct had come to the surface in a way never before seen in human beings—and still you have not said enough."


The Jasenovac system of Croatian camps also included a camp for children run by Catholic nuns who used toxic soda to save bullets.  They put to death over 100,000 Serbian children under the age of ten years.  There are hundreds of documents to attest to these hideous crimes.  There are countless documents that also attest to the fact that 743 Roman Catholic priests were members of the Ustashi and personally murdered Serbs, Jews and Gypsies. Jasenovac was for a time, run by Fr. Filipovic-Majstorovic, a Catholic priest who admitted to killing "40,000 Serbs with his own hands." The 40,000 figure was used in 1991 by the late Croatian president, Franjo Tudjman, who was quoted in the Jerusalem Post on December, 1991 as saying,  "I am a doubly lucky man, my wife is neither Serbian nor Jewish."  His insistence that "only 40,000 Serbs perished at Jasenovac"  exposes the level of cover up of this genocide by the Croatian people.


Fr. Petar Brzica, a Catholic priest and camp guard at Jasenovac was nicknamed "King of the Killers." In a contest on August 29, 1942 to see who could kill the most Serbs in one night Fr. Brzica won by slitting the throats of 1,350 Serbs.


The 743 Roman Catholic priests who participated in the killing of tens of thousands of Serbs, Jews and Gypsies and the running of Jasenovac escaped Europe through the "Vatican Ratline" run by Fr. Draganovich, a Croatian Catholic priest who helped morons like Clause Barbe escape from Europe.  Those Catholic priests escaped to Argentina where they also escaped justice.  


I am the first plaintiff in a class action law suit against the Vatican Bank to recover $100 million in damages for the Vatican's participation in these war crimes and money laundering the proceeds from their Serb, Jewish and Roma victims.  Vatican lawyers have three times tried to get this case thrown out of court.  The Supreme court has rejected their claims.

Orthodoc,

Then how come the Vatican still won't open it's archives regarding this period of history?  And how come so many Utashe members who were also Catholic priests ended up in South America (Argentia) with Vatican passports?

The Vatican is quite stingy with its archive concerning all periods.  They won't even let me in to take a look.  As to passports, do you really think the Pope oversees things like passport issuing?  I am sure their is quite a bit of bureacratic corruption at the Vatican, up to and including Croatian members of the diplomatic corps issuing passports to Croatian war criminals.  There was the Vatican bank scandal a few years back as well.  None of this implies the Pope or the Catholic Church at large supported the Ustashe or the war crimes they committed.  Which I should point out they also commited against Byzantine Catholics of the Eparchy of Krizevci.  Croats worshiping like thier dread enemies the Serbs I suppose was the reasoning on that one.

As difficult as it may be to comprehend, anyone who has an ax to grind against Roman Catholics needs to drop that ax NOW!!

For in failing to drop the ax, one also fails to obey Christ's instructions to deny himself, lift up his cross and follow Him. (Mark 8:34-38)!!

After all the info that has been presented, all the websites already given (and there are more) I can provide. One can still have the audacity to attribute it all to an 'axe to grind' is beyond my comprehension!

Using History as a guide - if the nation of Israel was created as a consequence of the Holocaust, what do Orthodox Christians wish to gain by the atrocities committed by Roman Catholics.  If the Kingdom of Heaven is an audacity, what else do our Serbian friends want to see if not the literal "an eye for an eye?"

Funny you should mention that: when I was in Yugoslavia ('87) they had the pitchforks the Ustase modified so that they could poke out both eyes at once of Serb.

The reason we study history is in the hope that by study them, past atrocities will not occur again.  And what we are discussing here took place less than seventy years ago!

When the newly proclaimed (and immediately Vatican recognized) independent Croatia starting renaming streets and public squares after Ustase, banning Cyrillic etc. the Serbs decided not to wait to see where that was going. Jovan Roskavic led the Croatian Serbs, until Trudjman got the bright idea of discrediting him to get Serbs more to his liking.  He got the Serbian Republic of Krajina instead.

Quote
The Great Depression is repeating before our eyes in a greatly condensed time frame than the original.  Out of the first Great Depression came the above atrocities and atrocities on a far worse scale are likely to come out of this Great Depression.

Something else that someone who is blamed for everything including hurricanes is going to get blamed for?

Sometimes we Orthodox are our own worst enemies!

Orthodoc,

To say the Ustashe was supported by the Catholic Church is a bit much.  Certainly some Catholics were members and supporters, including some clergy, but that can hardly be claimed as official sanction by the Catholic Church.  The same claim can be made about some Orthodox in Romania and Bulgaria which were part of the Axis.  Can I therefore conclude the Orthodox Church supported the Axis?  Of course not.  It is ridiculous claims like these that make it appear people have axes to grind.

Fr. Deacon Lance

I'll give you Romania, but what do you have on Bulgaria?

When the statement is chopped in half, confusion is artificially created.   Grin
You, I and every other Orthodox believer have the same witnesses, the Holy Martyrs.

My point is that the suffering and oppression of one Orthodox people (e.g. the Serbs) needs not be constantly emphasized in light of what happened to Orthodox witnesses throughout the course of history.  Just as Roman Empire had their agenda in persecuting early Christians, an agenda exists for the mistreatment of Serbs.  We will not resolve that problem in this forum and those who wish for a resolution will not find the resolution they are looking for.   Huh

Yes, bad things have happened to Serbia in the last 60-70 years.  The International Community looks the other way just as the Roman Empire did in the first 300 years of Christianity.  All I'm saying is move on as an Orthodox Christian, nothing more.

Are you saying that Serbian Holy Martyrs should not be celebrated along with other Orthodox martyrs? If yes, why?

Brother, slow your brain down and observe that I never said anything about not celebreating Serbia's Holy Martyrs.  The answer to the above question is ΟΧΙ (Greek for NO) because your Holy Martyrs are also My Holy Martyrs and vice versa.   Smiley

There is the screen name of each publisher on youtube. Can't you read it? It's on the right side of your browser.

2.  What was the submitter hoping to accomplish by posting this video on youtube?

I don't know, I'm not clairvoyant.

3.  Do you expect us to believe the video merely because it was posted on youtube?

No, I don't. I actually expect people to see the footage of the teeth.

4.  What do you hope to accomplish by reviving this turd--er, I mean thread?

I missed you spell-checking and grammar-proofing of my posts, so my hope was that you'd be able to find several items to play with.

You'll write anything but to address the content of video, which, btw, isn't mine. I've come across to it incidentally. Neither are the stupidities of the person whom placed the video on youtube mine.

It's crafted from excerpts of Ustasha's very own footage.

There are golden teeth featured, from 1:27 to 2:00 there, something you described as "half baked conspiracy". Of course, you wouldn't address that, would you?

Spiritual growth by continuing to trumpet a bitterness antithetical to life in Christ?  How does your continued preaching of Serbian nationalism and Ustashe atrocities against your people have anything to do with the REAL Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ?

But when you present this video as evidence to support your message, you kinda adopt as your own the stupidities of the person who published the video.  IOW, it's rather stupid to use a stupid video to bolster your claims.

Again, when you use a youtube video as evidence of your thesis and expect us to address the content of the video, then questions of the credibility of the video based on the believability of the video's submitter become very important to our analysis of the content.  If the person who posted the video on youtube is a crank, then why should we trust as authoritative history anything that's presented in the video?  What is he NOT telling us?  This you won't see in the video because he doesn't want us to know what he's not telling us.  Yet what the submitter is NOT telling us is probably just as important, if not moreso, as what he IS telling us.

Orthodoxlurker,
Before you respond any further, I'd just like to point out a few things to you:

1) Nobody on OCnet is stating that the atrocities against the Serbs by the Ustashi didn't happen.

2) Nobody on OCnet is stating that the Roman Catholic Church was not complicit in these atrocities against the Serbs by the Ustashi.

Again, when you use a youtube video as evidence of your thesis and expect us to address the content of the video, then questions of the credibility of the video based on the believability of the video's submitter become very important to our analysis of the content.  If the person who posted the video on youtube is a crank, then why should we trust as authoritative history anything that's presented in the video?  What is he NOT telling us?  This you won't see in the video because he doesn't want us to know what he's not telling us.  Yet what the submitter is NOT telling us is probably just as important, if not moreso, as what he IS telling us.
Peter,
This was probably the most grammatically complex paragraph I have ever read, and I'm still trying to get my head around it!
One thing I will say though is that I just watched the video orthodoxlurker posted a link to and it appears to be a compilation of video footage of the Ustashi atrocities which I have seen before. The Ustashi were inhuman, I would say demonic, in their treatment of the Serbs, and stupidly recorded their own atrocities on film. I have seen footage of Ustashi smiling for the camera as they beheaded a Serb. I have seen photographs of Ustashi holding a bowl ready to collect the blood of a Serb victim into whose face they are about to drive a sharpened stake. It happened. It was an attempt at genocide, but it was not "sanitized"- these demonic beings actually revelled in torturing their victims.

Not to put too fine  point on it, but someone who puts up a video titled "Nazi Germany - A Creation of the Vatican and Jesuits" is a crank.

There is no such a title in the video to which I posted the link. The title of it reads "Catholic Inquisition in Jasenovac". See:



That's 1:56 of the video, featuring the golden teeth, pulled out from the victims, the footage of which was captured by Ustashe themselves. Info about the golden teeth, having been pulled out by Ustashe, has been branded here as "half-baked conspiracy".

Silly me.

Here is the film about pooling the golden teeth out. By Ustashe. From the victims.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DE06Rg6I_co&feature=related

Part from 1:27 to 2:00

Of course, expecting from Veniamint to produce a comment after this would be yet another silliness on my part.

Does anyone honestly expect a balanced response from orthodoxlurker with regard to his belligerent stance against the Roman Catholic church? His signature line is Τον Πάπα να καταράσθε διότι αυτός θα είναι η αιτία του κακού, derived from a pronouncement by St Kosmas Aitolos. Translation:Lay curses on the Pope, as he shall be the cause of evil.

It is disgraceful to use the words of a saint to promote and justify one's political/religious ideologies.

Peter,
This was probably the most grammatically complex paragraph I have ever read, and I'm still trying to get my head around it!
Sorry.  I have a way of doing that sometimes, though I had no conscious intent to do so. Embarrassed  (Even so, I do find some perverse glee in knowing that I stumped even you with one of my posts. Grin)  In an attempt to make myself more clear, I will summarize by saying that, within the context of this discussion, the believability of him who posted the video on youtube IS important to a critique of the video's content.

Quote

I can see this lending credibility to the video's content.  Now, as to whether this bolsters orthodoxlurker's assertions on this thread, that's a different story.

Thanks for pointing out the inconsistency in my logic--and I'm not speaking sarcastically.  You're right to say that the stupidities of the person who submitted the video don't necessarily make the video itself stupid.  I should have separated the two in the paragraph you quoted.

Quote
It's precious. I don't know if youtube publisher did some stupidities in his life, but publishing this video isn't among them.
I still don't understand, though, why you continue to proclaim that the Ustashe pulled gold teeth out of the heads of your people and handed the wealth over to line the Vatican coffers.  I don't deny that it happened, and I don't deny that the Ustashe perpetrated some of the most heinous of atrocities possible against your people.  My question is what you hope to accomplish by preaching this whenever you have the chance.  How does the bitterness and rage I see in your posts on this thread do anything to bring others to salvation in Jesus Christ?  Do you want us to validate your suffering by dragging us into your cesspool of self-victimization?

Do you understand now? Veniamin did not say the teeth didn't exist, so proving they did is pointless- you're just creating a strawman to beat up. And if you have any doubts that what I am saying is true, look at what you posted to "prove" your interpretation of Veniamin's meaning....you simply posted your own interpretation of it........sigh.....

My question is what you hope to accomplish by preaching this whenever you have the chance. 

How many times are you going to ask the same question, and how many times I should actually care and respond?

...

I just don't see why you even need to bring this up on our discussion forum. 

See, I usually avoid to do it. Except:

a) it was a news, contrary to your view:

Well, seeing that this ISN'T news, it certainly doesn't belong in Christian News now, does it?

b) I usually feel inspiration to do it when I hear statements of Mrt. Zlizloulas published by asianews.it (I guess you know what I mean; if you don't I'll give you a hint: we are at a turning point)

c) I'm compelled to do it in front of such statements:

Plus you sitting in judgment right now.  However, since we don't have a section entitled "OL's dumb conspiracies," Free for All will have to suffice. Roll Eyes

and such ones:

Try truth instead of falsehood.  For once.


...

I realize this isn't the subject you love to hear. So, here is my proposal: Change the rules of the board. Limit it to Orthodox inhabitants of English-speaking world. Or to Western world. Or to ecumenists. Or to all but Serbs. Or whatever.

Do you understand now? Veniamin did not say the teeth didn't exist, ...


You became his spokesman?

BTW, in this very thread, under the avalanche of trolls, I presented the evidence (Veniami likes to seek "eye witness") about:

a) Ustasha's loot;

a.1) Gold extracted from golden teeth of the victims that was part of the loot;

b) Deposition of the loot in Vatican Bank after WW2;

c) The fact that some diamonds were part of the arms deal between Croatia and unnamed dealer during the war 1991-1995, with well-known fact about UN arms embargo in force during that time;

d) Speculation in Croatian newspapers that the diamonds were part of WW2 loot;

d.1) Claim by the very same Croatian newspapers that the diamonds were handed over to late Croatian President Tudjman by late Croatian Catholic Archbishop Kuharic;

e) Assassination of the daughter of the defense attorney of the accused for embezzlement of the diamonds.

Now, instead of addressing a bunch of non-related issues, I'm eager to read some responses with merit.

Not to put too fine  point on it, but someone who puts up a video titled "Nazi Germany - A Creation of the Vatican and Jesuits" is a crank.

There is no such a title in the video to which I posted the link. The title of it reads "Catholic Inquisition in Jasenovac".

The person who put up the video to which you linked also put up http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9zBX4gt0eo, which is titled exactly as I have described.

Thank you for the link. Unfortunately, I don't have time to see it, assuming I already know most of what's presented there. If you think it worth, start your own thread, I might drop a line.

I linked the above video in one single narrow context - to present visual evidence about the undisputed historical fact, proved many times, that Ustashas dug golden teeth out of their victims. I had to, although it is as clear as the water is wet, since my mention of it was branded as "half-baked conspiracy".

Therefore, everything not related to 1:29 - 2:00 footage is simply of no merit to the discussion.

The Ustashi were inhuman, I would say demonic,

Agreed.

Their spiritual father, the official army chappellan / confessor (I probably can't refer to his title properly in English) Alojzije Stepinac was proclaimed blessed several years ago, by Pope Woytila.

Orthodox hierarchy visit the council of Roman Pope, kiss and hug with them and call them brothers with whom they want to unite.

Are you saying Orthodox hierarchy want to unite with people whose saints bore demonic spiritual children?

Perhaps for reducing chances to become demonic by escaping reverence of spiritual father of those who committed those sins, whom blessed those sins, and whom their Pope beatified recently, proclaiming those were not sins, but good deeds in accordance with their theology?

Are you saying Orthodox hierarchy want to unite with people whose saints bore demonic spiritual children?
Yeah, that's right, that's exactly what I'm saying.

Is that "the turning point" Mrt. Zlizloulas referred to in his interview to asiatimes.it ?

I'm sure it is. Now, please excuse me,  but I have to get back to painting my pentagram on the floor before the blood from the animal sacrifice dries.

After such "turning point" it's a matter of time when you, or your offspring, would paint it by the blood of Orthodox, if God allows it again.

Just like Ustashe, whom were the first, second or third generation of Orthodox converts to Roman Catholicism.

EEEK!  George, George, George!!!

You're supposed to paint the pentagram BEFORE the animal sacrifice in order to keep the summoned demon confined within its circle.

Dear, oh dear, you've gone and done it now!  Where are you getting your rituals from, a black metal album? Wink

If we're going to throw authorities around here, I would prefer to stick with someone like the US state department than a crank with a bunch of youtube videos.

(Should I even dare thinking this, unless I'm able to convince PtA and ozGeorge, in all their ignorance and malice?!?)
It's not that I don't know what you're talking about or that I don't believe you.  I just don't see why you even need to bring this up on our discussion forum.  Do you honestly think that your continued efforts to repeat the litany of atrocities committed against you and your people will contribute ANYTHING for our salvation?  What happened to "forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors"?


It took less than a year for me to be able to remind you that this is against the foreign policy, since I credited the sources, as determined by the joint efforts of Fr. Chris and PeterTheAleut (a moderator). See:
Would you be able to supply the documents which Dolskaya references?  This is Forum policy although I can appreciate that it is not always possible.
Irish Hermit, I suspect you may be misrepresenting Forum policy with this statement, since I'm only aware that Pravoslav09 must credit the documents that he himself has referenced, which he has done quite consistently on this thread.  I'm not aware of any policy that requires him to supply the documents that the authors of his sources have referenced.  I'm currently reviewing Forum rules on this, but in the meantime, if you are intentionally misrepresenting Forum policy, you need to stop now.  If you want to discuss this with me, please do so via private message.
After clarifying this point of policy further with Fr. Chris, the rule of source documentation is merely that Pravoslav09 (as well as Irish Hermit) must credit his sources, which he has done.  This policy does not extend to the sources his sources have used, so he bears no requirement to supply any documents that the authors of his sources have referenced.  To ask him to do this therefore goes beyond the scope of Forum policy on this matter.

Well, that's nice. And report does offer some insight.

But imagine, you are posting on the same board, and may have already have some conversation, with a poster whose parents were captive in that concentration camp where golden teeth were being taken out of the victims (and no, I am not that poster).

Pfef, but he is not a credited source.
 Orthodoxlurker---

This is the third occaison you have discussed crediting sources, and as such have involed upon yourself the following


Quote
Due to the past behavior of certain poster(s), the Administrators, Global Moderators, and Moderators have agreed to adopt the following change in policy regarding posts, to wit:

In order to reduce the potential for any poster from controlling or influencing this site, the leadership of OC.net reserves the right to limit participation from any individual who has been regularly or routinely hijacking threads or otherwise distracting posters.


This measure has been taken in discussion with other members of the Administration and Moderatorial Team of this site.
