Allegations of St. Louis terrorism support rooted back in Bosnian War
Monday, 20 April 2015

ST. LOUIS • In one picture, Ramo Pazara is the picture of casual cool.

He straddles a gleaming Suzuki motorcycle, wearing torn jeans, a long-sleeved black T-shirt and a necklace. He sports a scruff of hair on his chin, and his collar-length blond hair is tucked beneath a black stingy-brim hat.

But something changed. Dramatically. After his marriage and trucking business in Michigan both failed, Pazara cut his hair short and grew his beard long. He began wearing a white Arabic-style thawb and head covering, and moved to St. Louis.

After 17 months here, in 2013, Pazara left to fight in Syria, where he reportedly would rise to be a deputy to a top commander of the murderous, apocalyptic Islamic State terrorist group.

He was one among a tiny number of Americans fighting with extremists in Syria, perhaps a dozen by one FBI estimate in September.

Vasilije Krestic academician of the SASA: About the Genocidal Nature of Croatian Politics
Wednesday, 25 February 2015
Vasilije Krestić, academician of the SASA
Preface to the monograph by Jovan Mirkovic: "Crimes against the Serbs in the Independent State of Croatia", published by the "Svet knjige"
 
It is a well-known fact in science that everywhere in the world a massive annihilation of the national name of a given people is an introduction to physical attacks against them, their public stigmatisation and pointing the finger at those who are considered a hindrance and who should by all means be eliminated from the milieu in which they are undesirable. The annihilation of the Serbian name in Croatia was invariably accompanied with incessant public claims that Serbs were traitors, the disturbance factor of Croatian society and politics, the “public nuisance”, that “Croats are not Serbian brothers because dogs are brothers to Serbs”, that Serbs are haiduks and brigand people with Byzantine craftiness and knavery, and that “Serbdom is dangerous by its thoughts and racial composition” as “its blood induces the mood for conspiracies, revolutions and coups”.

In some Croatian circles, particularly in the press of the Party of Rights and Francofurtims (Franco-clerical movement), Serbs were never called by their national name, but by various pejorative names, such as: Vlachs, Gypsies, Greco-Easterners, Schipetars (i.e. Shqiptars), Byzantines, intruders, litter, Valachian litter, litter of the Orthodox faith, the socalled Serbs, those who christen themselves as Serbs, those who seed themselves where they should not etc. Ante Starčević called them: “the muddy spawn”, “abominable slavish creatures”, “servile breed”, “litter ripe for an axe”, “stooges”, “Austrian dogs”, “unleashed dogs”, “trash” and the like. During anti­Serbian demonstrations, which took place several times in Zagreb (1895, 1899 and 1902), the crowd shouted genocidal slogans such as: “Strike, strike in der Stadt, hang Serbs with ropes around their necks”, “Serbs on willows”, “Axes on Serbs’ necks”.

It very soon turned out that the annihilation of the Serbian name produced the desired results. The Serbian name came to be treated as “political transgression” and measures were taken to fully suppress and root it out so as to create an ethnically pure, religiously homogeneous, Catholic – Great Croatia. The extent of hatred towards Serbs by Croats, who followed the politics of the Croatian state and historical right, is best shown in the book “Politička povijest hrvatskoga naroda“ (Political History of the Croatian People) by dr Pero Gavranić, published in 1895 in Zagreb. Gavranić states the following: “There is certainly nowhere in Europe today greater hatred among peoples of different languages than it is the case here, among Serbs and Croats who share the same language. This hatred is indeed inconvenient, but rather understandable. The Croatian and Serbian aspirations do not fight with arms in hand, as our current rulers would not allow it. However, a fight certainly goes on, an insidious, secret, nasty fight of one existence against another, of one individual against another, without rest and without an end. In order for us, Croats, to obtain a little independent state as Serbs have, and to live without fear, a war would surely break out between us and Serbs, and such war would certainly be the most popular.”

Noce also ordered that two other defendants in the case, Mediha Medy Salkicevic, 34, of Schiller Park. Ill., and Jasminka Ramic, 42, stay in jail until trial.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation confirms it arrested a man in central Indiana on Feb. 6, 2015, for allegedly helping ISIS terrorists.
 
 
13 Investigates first broke the story. We now have new details explaining how FBI agents caught their man.

His name is Nihad Rosic. He's originally from Bosnia, and moved to the United States where he's worked as a truck driver. But federal agents say he lives a double life and that he's part of a group that's been directly supporting ISIS terrorists in the Middle East.

As bloody battles rage on in Syria, the FBI and federal prosecutors have been working behind the scenes here in the United States.

Three weeks ago in St. Louis, prosecutors announced the indictment of six Bosnian nationals for conspiring to help ISIS terrorists. But what prosecutors did not announce is that one of the suspects was arrested in central Indiana.

13 Investigates has learned federal agents have been tracking Nihad Rosic for years. The FBI tells Eyewitness News that the truck driver was making a routine delivery off of Ronald Reagan Parkway in Plainfield when they made their arrest. It happened about an hour before Air Force One and President Barak Obama landed nearby.
