I think we are still not normal
the killings have left us bad
consequences. Every day we never forget them. Hasan Bilalli
(small photo, far right) spoke of the massacre that occurred on
January 15,1999 in Racak when 52 civilians, including children and
a 99- year-old man, were killed by Serb forces. The massacre was
a jolting wake-up call to the West and the decisive event leading
to intervention against Serb forces. Hasan was wounded in the leg
and a bullet went through his back. Two of his sons were also injured.
I am now living with 27 members of my family
in one room. Everything else burned.
Slavs had no mercy
One man was decapitated.
They never found his head. I think Serbs took it as a trophy
They said he and others were terrorists. The dead didnt have
Over 2,000 Serb forces came in from the back hills over night,
surrounding the town with tanks. There were only 50 KLA soldiers
protecting us and they battled with the Serbs for three days until
a ceasefire. We saw the OSCE trucks in the pine woods near Cesta
Hill and we felt protected. But Serbs didnt respect the agreement.
Soon after, they started the killing. Mutilated bodies were left
behind. They shot nine KLA soldiers, including my son.
The Hague tribunal never sent anyone to ask
us for the names of the criminals
I know where the criminals
are in Lipjan and Gracanica. Why is Mr. Kouchner protecting
the criminals and not allowing justice to happen? Why does KFOR
search my house and not Serbs houses? Children are scared.
To them, they are all the same. They cant tell good soldiers
If Clinton comes here, all of Kosovo will cheer
dont forget, you are also enemies of Serbs. In their minds,
the US will always be their enemies.
