When Does Partition End? When the Muslims want it to.
The United States State Department and the EU have hypocritically refused to consider the “partition” of Kosovo into Serb and Kosovar Muslim areas.
Burns has joined the European Union’s new special envoy for Kosovo, Pieter Feith, in flatly rejecting any partition of the former Serb province. But in remarks to foreign reporters in Washington, reflecting Vienna comments earlier Thursday by EU diplomat Feith, Burns said the United States will not tolerate or support any move toward partition be it informal, creeping or de jure.
Burns, the State Department’s third-ranking official, said the argument of Jeremic and others is hypocritical and overlooks Serbia’s brutal record in Kosovo
So it’s perfectly alright to forcibly partition Yugoslavia but not alright to partition the partitioned piece of it. Where does the difference lie? It can’t be in the so-called brutal treatment of a minority, because the Muslims are guilty of that more than the Serbs and the lip service regarding the protection of Serbian minority rights is meaningless.
So the real difference is that you can partition territory on behalf of Muslims but you can’t partition Muslim controlled territory. For the same reason the territories Israel reclaimed in the Six Day War couldn’t be partitioned, only turned over. Meanwhile Muslims are never under any obligation to partition their territory, no matter how badly they oppress minorities or the Coptic Christians would have their own homeland too under the threat of NATO guns and bombs. Those same weapons that have remained silent in the Sudan.
