Vojislav Seselj: unadulterated evil to give closing arguments at ICTY

Closing arguments in the ICTY trial that started in 2007 against Vojislav Seselj are to commence in the Hague March 5. Seselj, a Serb radical leader in 1990’s is accused of crimes against humanity, persecution, ethnic cleansing and murder in early 1990’s of Croats, Muslims, and other non-Serbs across Croatia, Bosnia  and Herzegovina.

Seselj, a Serbian ultranationalist and the figurehead of the Serbian Radical Party in early 1990’s, considered himself as the successor of the World War II Serb nationalist butchers – Chetniks. Seselj and his Serbian Radical Party participated in the formation of the Serbian paramilitary unit “White Eagles” (Beli Orlovi) who are responsible for countless war crimes across Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina during 1990’s.

“Many claim, he was responsible for “dirty job” on Milosevic’s behalf that concluded in organizing paramilitary units for the fronts in Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina as well as heating up ethnic intolerance among the local Serbs. Allegedly, the volunteers led by Seselj committed numerous crimes between 1991 and 1993 (including those in Vukovar, Samac, Zvornik, etc.). Inside Serbia he was widely believed to be in fierce opposition to Milosevic, and this reputation enabled SRS to gain high percentage of votes in all parliamentary elections held in Serbia in the 1990s.”

He hated all non-Serb populations of former Yugoslavia with a passion and made sure everyone knew it. He spread that hatred vigorously, wherever he went.

In short, Seselj is one of many faces of absolute evil Serbia thrust against Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 1990’s.  The following video from Serbian TV Politika from 1991 demonstrates how evil Seselj was and Serbs looked up to him, applauded, laughed approvingly at  his evil ways.

Transcript of above video is translated into English for my readers’ benefit as many, I believe, may have never experienced the utter inhumanity that comes from unadulterated evil dressed-up in humour:

Seselj: “Well I think that the Croatians are at the moment very dangerous for us, because Croatia has become a nuclear power (laughter, applause), they obtained atominc weapons, the contaminated with radiation Kalashnikovs from Hungary, and for us Serbs it’s going to be most dangerous when they throw them into (river) Sava and the radiation reaches us in Belgrade” (laughter , applause).

As as far as their army is concerned, you know, 20 or 30 Chetniks quickly solve that problem (laughter, applause), When from a Thompson a bullet hits a Croat in the forehead both of his eyes pop out and when a bullet hits him in the neck he becomes headless and there’s no need to slaughter him “(laughter applause)

Show host: “This is now in the domain of a bit of black humour.

Seslj: “There’s no humour here, I’m answering the questions seriously. We’re not joking…

Show host: “I’m trying…to brighten up things …this is an entertainment show and well OK…”

Question from audience: “I was asking about Tihomir (Abdic  or Avdic – pronunciation not clear on audio)

Show host: “Mr Seselj, You said that the real border between Croatia and Serbia would be Italy”.

Seslj: “There’s no Croatia (applause) and Dalmatia is Serbian, There’s no legal document…Croatia does not exist (applause) … according to international plan it does not exist…”

Show host: “OK so you go to Karlobag, over Ogulin to Karlovac … Osijek is going to be in Serbia…”

Seselj: “Well Osijek is a Serbian city, old Serbian city, everybody should know that…”

Show host: “…then to Sisak …”

Seselj: “You’ll need to learn geography all over again (laughter, applause)…

Show host: “… ok then tell me (applause)… then that means that Split is going to be a Serbian city…”

Seselj: “Yes Split too…

Show host: “…everything then …Zadar…(applause) Sibenik…”

Seselj: “Everything…according to European pact Split was to be Serbian city…large Serbian port (applause)… at time of Yugoslavia there was about 1 million Serb Catholics …Italians had everything from Karlobag to north …”

Show host: “ …that’s to do with the agreement from 1915…”

Seselj: “yes that’s it…”

Show host: “well how can that be, there was war in 1915 and it’s known borders don’t change during a war…”

Seselj: “ah..yeah…the winners were planning how to proceed…”

Show host: “I have another question from Zoran Milanovic – what do you think about the situation in Croatia?”

Seselj: “There is a second alternative in case the Italians don’t accept to agree with us there’s a second alternative that Yugoslavia breaks up into three states Big Serbia, small Slovenia and even smaller Croatia (laughter, applause) …”

Show host: “OK you haven’t mentioned Bosnia and Herzegovina …”

Seselj: “What Bosnia and Herzegovina, that’s a Serbian country (laughter, applause) I know that best, I was born there …”

Show host: “You haven’t mentioned Macedonia…”

Seselj: “Macedonia is a Serbian country, currently we are preparing in Kumanovo a large meeting I think it’s going to be soon … couple of hundred thousand people…Serbs from Macedonia… “

Show host: “Let me ask Dragana if she agrees with these things, with all these borders …  (laughter, applaude)that would be a very large Serbia…we’ll go like from Sumadija to Split …(laughter, applause) then Serbs will need to start buying cars they now use bicycles …they’ll go Nis, Sibenik, Split, Makarska…”

Seselj:  “half an hour by phone…”

Female Voice from audience: “no medical help from them…”

Seselj: “I’m present there constantly, already two three times three times I’ve gone there besides you’ve heard Vucurevic president of the Trebinje Council that there is no need to send volunteers from this narrowed Serbia, there’s enough Serbs there ready to fight and when needed they’ll fight, and besides, that we are constantly present over there is best evidenced by the fact that many Muslims and Croats don’t sleep in their houses that they are on watch day and night  (laughter, applause)…and so they’re telling stories how our Chetnics are marching around over there …they say how I give them some tablets (pills) with which they don’t need to sleep nor eat for five days and five nights …”

Male voice from audience: “they just slaughter

Seselj: “yes … (laughter, applause) …  as far as the slaughtering is concerned, again you may not like it…we have perfected new methods, yes, we now slaughter with shoehorns, rusty ones and then an autopsy can never conclude the cause of death if it was slaughter or tetanus…”

Show host: “well good idea but then why is there an announcement for witnesses…other orientations…(laughter)…”

Seselj: “you seem to be in a pacifist mood…”

Show host: “Well I need to be for all, I need to explain to everybody in a nice way ….I don’t know … in fact I didn’t vote … as no one appealed to me a lot …”

Seselj: “you should have kept that to yourself…”

Show host: “about voting?…let me ask now something lighter and brighter… “(turns to Dragana for questions…at 5min40sec of video clip)

The truth is that even through Serbian laughter and evil wit the Serbian resolve to destroy Croatians, Muslims and non-Serbs in former Yugoslavia was frightening, let alone the actual slaughters, tortures, rapes, destruction…

Closing arguments in Seselj’s case at the Hague will most likely last a few days and start with the Prosecution’s arguments. I think that Seselj’s part of the closing arguments should be very swift indeed. It should only contain one short phrase and that phrase should be formed in the meaning of begging for mercy – from humanity. The whole of humanity, not just the ICTY should work hard at ridding itself of such evil. I would not recommend the taking of one of those “Seselj pills” in order to succeed at that for the “Seselj pill” referred to in Seselj’s TV appearance above is a metaphor for pure evil, pure hate, pure determination to destroy.

  1. Can you imagine the outcry if a Croatian said what seselj said? How is it that this was not and still is not front page news? How effective is the propaganda against Croatia that as the victim, it has been equalized in both deed and mentality as the aggressor? In fact it often seems the aggressor Serbs have more sympathy and forgiveness than the victims have justice and support. Serbia was the criminal enterprise that conceived, planned and executed a policy of elimination of Croatians and other non Serbs. Victims protecting themselves were not part of any criminal conspiracy! It is time to get our story told. I was an idealist when the war broke out, believing that truth and justice would prevail in a civilized world that had learned its lessons in WWII, and that Croatian would be spared the destruction of lives and property. I was wrong. Politics and ineptitude, political correctness and socialist left wing rose coloured glasses of the naive and valueless prevailed. We live in twisted world.

  2. Michael Silovic says:

    Many times the truth is silenced for political reasons. It is a sad truth though that the ordinary Croatian people suffer from propaganda.Someday Croatia’s history will be righted and the world will know the truth,Until then all we can do is try to inform the world of the truth when we see wrong.

    • Courage and determination to pursue the truth and place it where it belongs – up front!

    • You can check Jasenovac where you kill 1000’s of people, Croatians are Serbs, but they dont want to admit, however they should be cilent for at least 500 years ,because of what they done is beyond 10 century of civiliasation

  3. It’s actually the croatians who should beg for forgiveness from humanity. Croats were the aggressors in a war against Croatian Serbs and Yugoslavia as a whole when they illegally declared independence and themselves as enemies of the multi-cultural Yugoslavia we all knew and loved. … (Part comment deleted by admin)

    • Oh dear, Tesla – what’s illegal about 94% of people voting to secede from Yugoslavia and create an independent and democratic state. Obviously Serbs thought that was not to be so the attacked… not all loved the multicultural Yugoslavia, if they did then majority of voters in Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia would not have voted to get out of it. The states today also have multicultural society. It seems that democratic freedom of expression is an illegal act for you, so good luck with that

  4. This is fraud. He is in custody since 2003, which is very important fact, but you forgot to write it.

  5. First of all , EVIL is AMERICA andn EUROPE, they are trying to accuse him of doing wrong things in 90’s, why? Because they bomb and destroy JUGOSLAVIA, go to youtube and see how Seselj was defending him self, they have not even 1 case to proove. What is on the TV is only oposition trying to humiliate him, what else you can show ? Apsolutly nothing, not even one proof of anything. Every witness where paid by Hague but didnt work. First of all Seselj is in Jail since 2003, he has being in the jail for 9 years already and case is still not over. Why? Democracy ? What kind of democracy? 9 full years in the trial where is no end. If you have so much evidence why dont you show it? You cant, simply because you dont have any. I am not nasionalist, I just listen and watch for 9 years how Hague is lying and trying to proove something that does not excist. Simply no evidence thats all. You can write anything here but you simply cant show anything. The Seselj is a master of mind, one of most inteligent man in the balkans, starting from History, Politics or whatever, you simply can just dream to be him or to be near him – Johannesburg

  6. Nobody is trying to accuse Seselj, he has already been accused and charged – with lots of evidence. If you choose not to see the evidence that is your right, keep on dreaming. it’s good for the nerves.
