the Srebrenica "Massacre"
What happened in Srebrenica in July 1995?
Note the question mark. To Bosnian Muslims, Srebrenica is a story of mass murder, and they use this assertion as a "bloody shirt" to accuse the Serbs of genocide. Many Serbs, in response, simply raise the issue of Srebrenica Muslims' crimes against their Serb neighbors which are indisputable, but irrelevant to the debate. Meanwhile, the Srebrenica refugees are used as expendable political capital. Any murder in Srebrenica was a death too many. Anyone who murdered prisoners or unarmed civilians is a war criminal. But what happened? No one is in any hurry to find out. The myth is much more convenient. This page is not offering the answer, but merely asking questions no one else seems to be asking. It may well be that some 7000 people died in the aftermath of Srebrenica's fall. Or it may be they did not. Without a serious, honest inquiry, how will anyone ever know for sure? There can be no justice, no peace, no reconciliation (if any) without the truth.
