Yes, indeed! I consider it the best thing that came along on Internet
since WWW. It makes it possible to "tune in" to the local live Hungarian
Radio broadcasts here in the US! Both Kossuth and Petofi stations, and
the reception quality is quite good, even with the 14.4 modems, though
for enjoying music, you better have a 28.8 modem.
If you have Win95, you already have the built-in RealAudio player, so
all you need is a sound card and speakers, besides the modem.
The Web page for Kossuth Radio is: http://www.kossuth.enet.hu, for
Petofi it's (you've guessed it): http://www.petofi.enet.hu.
Happy listening! (But don't forget to visit back here occasionally! ;-)
"Blank check" for the criminals of the Balkan genocide ?
The world press fills columns of newspapers day by day with the
problems of the former Yugoslavia. Heads of the most zealous war
criminals Karadzic and Mladic must roll, they claim - so that justice is
done - by means of the International Court for Human Rights in the
Netherlands. Aren't there politicians or lawyers capable of
understanding the situation in entirety?
The tragedy of the Balkans in the past four years occurred right in
front of our eyes. The world witnessed, from a distance, countless
murders and the general craze of destruction by the Serbs. The war
was caused by the communist dinosaur MILOSEVIC. Of course, he
relied on many of his zealous supporters who carried out their
crimes according to the well proven principle of "divide and
Why doesn't the account for these deeds start with the head? Does
the world and do the politicians want to sustain a system that is in
direct contradiction to basic values of western civilisation and human
rights, the murderous and prepotent system of Greater Serbia that
resorts to "ethnic cleansing" (a Serb euphemism? -synonymous to the
Nazi extermination of Jews, Gypsies and political opponents). The
genocides of the nineties are not the first manifestations of
megalomanic fantasies towards political and military omnipotence -
to "solve" problems. Christianity and Western civilisation contradict
this principle where "the end justifies the means".
The criminal and cruel activities of the past few years could only be
perpetrated because of the silent condonation and because no
counter-threats of effective punitive measures were ever made. The
criminals were thus reassured to have a blank check for their
activities! On this occasion it should be remembered that, in l944,
from the end of October to the end of December, 40,000 Hungarians
(including elderly and infants) were killed by the Serbs in the same
nationalistic fervour in Voivodina, a region populated mainly by
Hungarians and given to Serbia by the Treaty of Trianon in l920. In
order to leave no evidence or traces, no written orders were given.
The murders were effected following the orders of the "hero"
Marshal Tito, who according to some mentally limited socialists
represented the "third road"- whatever it might have meant? There
was no guilt established, no charges were made, no warrant of arrest
was issued. The victims were "called up to do some communal work",
(for l-2 days) and assembled equipped with their carts and spades.
At the collection points, the carts were immediately confiscated, then
the victims were humiliated and tortured. Those who survived these
crimes, were driven in groups of 30-l20 to cemeteries, some
concealed spots or to the edge of a forest with their showel or spade.
There, they had to dig their own mass graves and then strip naked in
the bitter cold - (the death squads wanted to make use of their
cloths). Afterwards they were tied together with wire, so that once
shot blocks of flesh would neatly fall into the already dug mass
graves. Before final shots silenced them for good, they were made to
sing the Hungarian anthem and happy Hungarian songs. But the
Balkan cruelity did not stop here. Many victims were executed by
the incredibly brutal medieval method of driving a pole through
their bodies (the mere description or reading of this horrendous
brutality would necessitate psychotherapy). Nobody was allowed to
see these places in contrast to the mass graves of the past few years
which the world rightfully mourns. The first graves however have
slowly become colourful -even if covered by wilted flowers. Widows,
orphans and parents left alone unconspicuously pass the spots they
know or deem to be their loved ones' last resting place and drop a
Marshal Tito, the mass murderer could hardly keep up with the
invitations he received from the world over, being officially
welcomed on State visits, courted and honoured by many politicians.
He was heralded as one of the great statesmen of the post-war era
up until his death.
The question that must be raised is this. What prevents lawyers,
judges and political organisations of the world from a radically
thorough investigation and an exemplary judgement that might
really lead into a new era?
As long as MILOSEVIC can receive as "grand seigneur" and "pacifier"
- the arsonist helping extinguish the fire! - representatives of UN,
NATO, EU and other international organisations and obstruct them in
their search of the truth through his manipulations, we can not talk
of justice and peace, but of institutionalised complicity.
