Christian Terrorism Toward Muslims, a Reminder
relative among coffins of Srebrenica victims displayed at a
Memorial center in Potocari, Bosnia. The 307 bodies were
excavated from mass graves in eastern Bosnia and identified
as Muslims killed by Bosnian-Serb forces in the Srebrenica
area. Bosnian Serb troops massacred about 8,000 Bosnian
Muslim men after capturing Srebrenica on July 11, 1995,
during the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The 307
identified victims will be buried Friday in the Memorial
Center next to about 3,200 victims of the massacre already
buried there." Photograph © Amel Emric/Associated Press.
I came across this photograph at The New York Times, "Pictures of the Day, July 9th". It struck me in part because I have a repeated anonymous commentator here who constantly runs his mouth about the alleged threat that Muslims pose to Christians and other non-Muslims. This strikes me as wholly irrational fear - basically racist bigotry. So I figured it would be useful to post this image because it captures the aftermath of one instance of Christian terrorism toward Muslims. It is not, of course, the only instance. But every once in a while I try to induce active thought processes in even my most obtuse readers.
