Croatia: The End of Anti-Fascism

A European Parliament resolution has 19 September 2019 condemned Communism as equivalent to Nazism. To my view equating communism with Nazism is not enough; communism or its fantasy name of anti-fascism surpasses in the bulk of its crimes any other regime known to humanity. The moral superiority Anti-Fascists of Croatia (of Yugoslavia and all other […]

Russia’s Motives Unscrupulous In Labeling EU With Neo-Nazi Elements

  Foreign Affairs ministry of the Russian Federation has on 4 May, to mark the 70th anniversary of victory over fascism, published a report titled “Neo-Nazism – a dangerous threat to human rights, democracy and the rule of law” in which it sharply criticises the strengthening of right-wing and nationalistic political movements in Europe and […]

Croatian MEP Joins Urge For Stepping-Up Dealing With Communist Crimes

  With the new European Union Parliament on the way since elections in May 2014 and the election last week of Jean-Claude Juncker as the European Commission President there is a movement that caught my attention from the European Peoples’ Party (EPP) to make stronger steps forward regarding doing something about communist crimes rather than […]

Croatia: Communist Pollution Flutters On

Friday 23 August was the European Day of Remembrance of victims of totalitarian regimes/ Nazism and Communism. “Millions were killed during World War II and more suffered under totalitarian regimes for decades after the war ended. To commemorate these victims and to make sure that we build our future while remembering our past, 23 August […]

Croatia: Glorification of Communist Crimes as anti-Fascist Achievement

Even if, after thoroughly studying the victims of the Holocaust (some 11 million, 6 million of which were Jews) and the victims of WWII and post-WWII communist crimes (some 100 million), one concludes that the Nazis and their collaborators were worse criminals than the Communists, that still does not justify the massive size and inhumanity […]

Croatia: government’s deafening silence for victims of totalitarian regimes

August 23rd was/is the European Day for the Remembrance of the Victims of Totalitarian Regimes (Nazi, Communist and Fascist regimes alike). The silence from the Croatian government and Croatian president (all of whom are from the former Yugoslav communists breed) on that day was so painfully deafening that it took me days to recover. No […]

Croatian War Veterans: Conditions for prosecution of Communist Crimes exist

The Association “Testament” Zagreb (Association of Croatian war veterans from Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Diaspora) has July 10 sent a letter to Croatia’s president Ivo Josipovic. I consider the letter most revealing of the repugnance many feel in the political climate of Croatia where the leftist president and the government take every opportunity […]

Josip Broz Tito – embodiment of communist crimes

Recently I watched an exclusive Croatian TVPLUS interview with Josip Boljkovac (alleged communist war crimes perpetrator/WWII) and dr Vladimir Geiger, from Croatian history institute. Boljkovac persists in justifying mass murders of anti-communists after World War II ended from the perspective communists invented: “If we don’t kill them, they’ll kill us”.  Communists were top of the […]

Croatia: violent clashes involving Europe’s ultra-nationalists imminent

As I sensed in my previous post, Croatia’s minister of interior affairs, Ranko Ostojic, has Thursday 12 April banned International nationalists’ conference and rally that were organised by Croatian Pure Party of Rights. Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic confirmed the ban and stressed that the reasons for the ban had to do with one’s view of the […]

Politicising Communist crimes: inveterate canker

Two months after the Constitutional Court terminated the investigation of war crimes allegedly perpetrated by Josip Boljkovac in 1945 the Croatian State Prosecutor in Zagreb has January 27 re-opened the case. The new investigation is to be carried out under the new criminal investigations procedures for the same case as when Boljkovac, 92, was originally […]
