Cruel Irony Afflicts Unveiling Of Monument To Croatian Freedom Fighter

It is a cruel insult and cruel irony that on Armistice Day, 11th November, when World War I allies mark with respect and piety those who gave their lives for freedom and their emblems, police authorities in Zagreb, Croatia, go about disrupting remembrance gathering organised for the unveiling of the monument to the legendary Zarko […]

Book Review and Ponderings – Blanka Matkovic Book On Communist Crimes

Croatia’s Blanka Matkovic (Matkovich), a PhD candidate at Warwick University UK, has published her Master in Philosophy dissertation in book form titled “Croatia and Slovenia at the End and After the Second World War (1944-1945): Mass Crimes and Human Rights Violations Committed by the Communist Regime”.

Competitive Victimhood – Injustice For Victims Of Communist Crimes

  All good people owe it to the victims of communism to learn what happened to them and pursue justice for them. It has often been said, and I agree, that until Croatia’s left and those operationally associated with communism in former Yugoslavia acknowledge how evil communism had been we will continue to live in […]

Battles For Victims Of Communist Crimes And Croatia’s Homeland War

When politicians in positions of relative or specific power in Croatia, especially those beating the drum of integration between Croatia and its diaspora, visit the diaspora, which is made up of all sides of historical political spectrums, one would expect them to park their politics at the door and engage with all sides. Given that […]

No Fading Of Memory For Communist Crimes

To not give due attention to communist crimes in former Yugoslavia during and post-WWII is as evil as committing them. According to Rudolph J. Rummel – a US based world authority on communist crimes, mass murders committed in the name of the state, the body count attributed to communist Yugoslavia mass murders goes beyond the […]

Communist Malignant Tumour Feeding Off Croatia’s Atrocious Judiciary

That the leftists are a malignant tumour that feeds off Croatia’s atrocious state in the judiciary (among other dysfunctional government departments), which in its practices has not moved forward in the past quarter of century since secession from communist Yugoslavia towards a well functioning process that delivers timely and independent from political influences results, is […]

To Remove HOS Plaque Is Moral Suicide For Foundations Of Croatia’s Democracy!

Moral convictions shape a nation. Moral convictions shape a nation’s political opinions and actions. When insistence on a political compromise dictates that one side to the compromise relinquishes its moral foundations then you have a huge problem of, in fact, forcing the latter to commit moral suicide. This would epitomise the current political climate in […]

Australian Labor Party Should Apologise For Persecutions of Croatians

“It’s Time” by John Ovcaric It would seem that Tony Jones recently plagiarised a Yugoslav era work of Propaganda titled “Dvadeseti čovjek” (the Twentieth Man) written by “Đorđe Ličina” and while we sit and read this in astonishment, Jones, who obviously must be suffering some form of writer’s block let alone dementia has the gumption […]

Croatia: Lustration To Stop Sinking Deeper Into Mediocrity

  I have lost count of the number of times General Zeljko Glasnovic, Member of Croatian Parliament for the Diaspora, has emphasised and warned in his public and parliamentary appearances that the Croatian diaspora is purposefully excluded from Croatian social, economic and political life and development…and that this must be rectified in order for Croatia […]

Croatia: Distressing Taste Of Red

As far as many are concerned, wearing a red dress (red being the colour symbol of communism that has mass murdered hundreds of thousands of innocent Croats until 1990) scored no positive points but those of unease for the president of Croatia, Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic, at the official state celebration 5 August in the town […]

Another Croatian Maliciously Convicted By Yugoslav Communist Regime – Rehabilitated

Zagreb county court on Thursday 20 July 2017 published its decision to quash the verdicts that communist Yugoslav “people’s” courts handed down on 21 November 1945 convicting and pronouncing death-by-firing-squad sentence to academic Filip Lukas, in absentia, over his close ties with the WWII Independent Croatia movement. Wise and careful, Prof. Lukas fled Croatia just […]
