July 11 is the 24th anniversary of the genocide of Srebrenica, the worst evil in European soil since the Holocaust.
In July 1995, Serb forces systematically killed over 8,000 Bosniak Muslim men and boys in the so-called UN
In the nineties, genocide scholar Gregory H Stanton, examined the stages of genocide, which eventually became his "10 stages of genocide"
Genocide was not made by a small group of individuals, rather than a large number of people and the state all contributing to genocide.
At each step of avoiding steps can stop the situation from deteriorating further, Stanton noted. 19659004] Bosnian-Australian anthropologist Hariz Halilovic added a thirteenth stage in particular to the Bosnian case – "trumpalism."
Here's how the 10 stages of Stanton – and eleven Halilovic – related to the genocide of Srebrenica:
S tages 1, 2, 3: Classification, symbolism and discrimination
including the territory of Bosnia, Kosovo, Croatia, Montenegro and other neighboring countries) began in the 19th century, and lived after the death of Yugoslav leader Josip Broz Tito in 1980.
At lower of the Communist unity, the Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic and Serbian nationalists have seen the mass mobilization of the support of establishing a homogeneous Serbian state.
In the famous Milosevic address to a person in Belgrade in 1989, he presented himself as a Serbian and European savior. The Bosniaks are commonly called Turks, Balije (a slur for a Bosnian Muslim) and are named as terrorists and Islamic "extremists".
Stage 4: Dehumanisation  Many Serbs dehumanised Bosniaks, about them as little more than the Muslims who posed a threat to the Serbian hegemonist project.
"To mobilize domestic public opinion against Muslims and to justify future actions against them in the eyes of The West, the Serbian leadership requires an image of Islam as a totalitarian, inherently violent , and cultural alien systems in the European soil, "writes Fikret Karcic, professor at the University of Sarajevo, in his role" Distorted Images of Islam: the case of former Yugoslavia. "
" Such a cruel image was given some influential Serbian orientalists, the Orthodox Church, and some historians. "
Stage 5: Organizations
A plan to destroy Bosnia and" completely destroys it according to Vladimir Srebrov, a politician who promotes the SDS party with convicted criminal criminal of Bosnian Serb Radovan Karadzic.
Known as the RAM plan (frame), its purpose is Bosnian carving in a Greater Serbia and a Greater Croatia.
In the plan, officials explained how military artillery, ammunition and equipment are stored in strategic places in Croatia and Bosnia.
A secret police force was planned for the arming and training of local Serbs to create police and paramilitary units in Bosnia.
A document written by special army services including psychological warfare experts, says the most effective way to create The fears and fears in the Bosniak population is by tearing down women, minors age, and even children.
Stage 6: Polarization
Serbian and Bosnian Serb media regularly broadcast polarizing pr
In one case, while Serbia's forces are hiding in Sarajevo under siege, released by state-run Belgrade TV is a false story that deliberately intimates hatred, including the line: "The extremist Muslims came up to the most fearsome way in the world of the tortured people. Last night they gave Serb children in the zoo's lions of the city. "
Reported on the evening news and watched by a couple of million viewers.
Stage 7: Preparation
Organized from Belgrade, Serbia, the weapons were distributed to the Serbian population by trucks throughout 1990 and 1991 in Bosnia.
"Military and military equipment are still being initiated by military helicopters to Serbian military officials. At last, almost no Serbian homes have no automatic guns," according to a UN report from 1994.
"The pretense for delivering the weapon and the protection is that it is necessary for the defense against & # 39; the enemies of the citizen & # 39; – the extremist Muslims."
Stage 8: Persecution
Throughout Bosnia, influential, intellectual Bosniaks are often among the first to be executed, with their names released on death lists.
When Serb soldiers arrived in every town, they killed non-Serbians, often torturing them. Bosniak properties were confiscated.
