Swedish national TV (SVT) guilty of historical revisionism AGAIN!

Swedish national TV (SVT) has done it again. Last night SVT broadcast another documentary about the war in Bosnia, this time attempting to convince its viewers that a large number of Mujaheddin fighters arrived in Bosnia in order to use Bosnia as a haven from which to unleash unprecedented terror throughout the West. While no one is denying that volunteers from the Arab world fought alongside the Bosniak fighters, the assertion that Bosnia is now harboring countless Islamic extremists from the Arab world is ridiculously preposterous and completely unfounded.

SVT has argued that the purpose of the documentary is to offer a more balanced account of the war in Bosnia. A mere glance at their primary sources seriously undermines the credibility of this documentary. SVT has used exclusively Bosnian Serb sources and RTS TV in their futile effort to blame the Bosnian Muslims not only for the war in Bosnia but also for their "religious zealotry", apparently completely oblivious to Noel Malcolm's outstanding study of religious secularism among the Muslim population in Bosnia. Why not include reliable sources in the documentary instead of using notoriously pro-Serb ones?

Also, there was no mention in the documentary of the countless Russian and Greek mercenaries who arrived in Bosnia to side with Bosnian Serbs. If the principal objective of SVT was to show a fair and balanced account of the war in Bosnia, failure to include this fact is indicative of spurious and grossly biased journalism.

Swedish national TV (SVT) guilty of vicious historical revisionism

SVT recently broadcast a documentary replete with vicious revisionist propaganda, factual errors and blatant lies. Minimizing the genocidal act, which the Tribunal in the Hague proved without any reasonable doubt took place, SVT now belongs to the same category as the notorious left revisionists such as Diana Johnstone and Michael Parenti. It is asserted in this documentary that the Bosnian Muslim forces that were defending the Srebrenica enclave committed the same number of atrocities against the Serbian population in the neighboring villages, thereby equating the two warring sides in this so called "civil war". Also, it is implied that Alija Izetbegovic secretly agreed with Clinton to exchange Srebrenica for Vogosca and to give the green light to the Bosnian Serb army to summarily execute 5000 civilians. This would prompt NATO to resort to a military intervention in order to put an end to the Serbian onslaught.

You can watch the documentary here but it is mostly in Swedish. If you have any questions I will be happy to answer them.
