Only 12 people attended Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut of In the Land of Honey and Blood in the Serbian capital.
The movie was based on the romance between a Serbian policeman and a Muslim woman set in the early days of the Bosnian war has been shunned at the movie’s premiere in Belgrade. An artistic attempt at the reconciliation of the old Balkan enemies failed the test.
Jolie’s directorial debut aimed to justify NATO’s brutal butchery and warcrimes agianst the Serbs in Bosnia during the 1990s, and Jolie even specifically refered to Syria in an Al Jazeera interview. She put forth a string of utterly hollow gripes about the inactivity of the ‘international community’ as civilians suffer and die. Jolie’s selective morality means she doesn’t once mentioned Libya – a nation now butchered, fractured, and transformed into a torture state by NATO’s disgusting genocidal ‘humanitarian intervention’; an estimated 100,000 innocent people slaughtered by the very same ‘international community’.
Most likely reading from her pre-defined talking points, Jolie even called out Russia and China for using their veto powers against the ever benevolent ‘international community’ vis-à-vis Syria.
Angelina Jolie painfully upset the Balkan ghosts with her despicable demonizing of the serbian people.
While Bosnian Muslims celebrated her as a goddess of the art (5000 people cheered Jolie at premiere of the film in Sarajevo ) the Serbs crucified her on the media cross of shame. They wanted neither her nor her film. Overnight, the popular American actress became “persona non grata nr 1 ” in Serbia .
A small Balkan nation still carrying the historical burden of Milosevic’s bloody dictatorship considers Angelina a new, albeit small, but very important screw in the Hollywood “anti-Serbian” machinery propagating the Hollywood saga of Serbs as bad guys in the American movies — guys that shot, killed and raped while others sat innocently waiting to be the victims.
Angelina’s one-sided and twisted vision of the Bosnian tragedy again puts salt on never fully healed wounds in relations between Serbian Christians and Bosnian Muslims.
Ms. Jolie cried over the cruel fate of Muslim women in Sarajevo’s brothels, but shed no tears for any of the numerous Serbian women raped in the 15 registered Bosnian brothels headed by Muslims and Croats. If she had seriously investigated the UN archive that is accessible to her as a United Nations Ambassador of Peace she would have surely found the information in the document marked as A/47/813 S/24991 and dated December 18, 1992.
No tears for the three Serbian daughters of Milan Mitric — ages 12, 13, 14 — raped in front of their father by Bosnian Muslim Alija Selimagic. Following this he slaughtered them. Maybe the film would go in another direction if she had watched killer’s confession .
Angelina openly admitted she could not follow the principle of victims’ equality in her movie. Responding to charges that the film was unbalanced she replied :
“The fact is the war was not balanced. I could not make a film where it’s 50/50, because that’s simply inaccurate to what happened.”In seeking an Oscar she willingly accepted participation in a well-known pathetic numbers game, quoting the figure of 60,000 raped Muslim women as crucial inspiration for the movie. If she researched the origin of the information she would find that number was “a creative act” of Newsweek’s contributor Tom Post and a complete fraud.
According to Sara Flounders of the International Action Center, “Tom Post, a contributor to the article, explained that the estimate of 60,000 rapes was based on interviews with 28 women.” It was not the only report that falsely accused Serbs of mass raping of Muslim women based on a few testimonies. The evil evil Serbs are supposed to have “systematically mass raped” 60.000 women, no 40.000, no, 20.000 until finally 119 documented cases remained. (without the Serbian rape victims of course)
The same kind of propaganda as the Srebrenica hoax, where no genocide neither massacre took place during the fall of the enclave. Real crimes were committed however in the Srebrenica area, which have been suppressed, kept silent, covered up and swept under the carpet; because they were committed against Serbs. And to justify NATO warcrimes.
The Warburton Report authorized by the European Community estimated 20,000 Muslim women had been raped as part of a Serb strategy of conquest. Thanks to Simone Veil, a former French minister and president of the European Parliament it was revealed that the estimate of 20,000 victims was based on interviews with only four victims — two women and two men.”
French reporter Jeromy Bone explained the mechanism of the “mass raping” project:
When I was 50 kilometers from Tuzla, I heard: ‘Go to the Tuzla gymnasium, there are 4,000 raped women.’ At 20 kilometers the figure went down to 400. At 100 kilometer there were no more than 40. And on the spot I found 4 women who agreed to testify.
But madame Jolie was obviously not interested in reality. It was easiest to “hook up” the information that was rehashed hundreds of times, pointing the finger at the Serbs, the usual suspects, with no attempt to identify and qualify a new side of the truth. She just required a honorific Balkan drama. She is either willfully or programmed completely ignorant of the horrific history of the brave Serbian people who throughout history always fought heroically against imperialism. And that is exactly the reason why the current imperialistic neocon/zionist globalist psychopathic power structure needed to destroy the Serbian spirit in the 90’s in their insane and failing full spectrum dominance agenda.
Maybe because her brainwashed state of mind she was not aware that she had a great story in her hands. A beautiful story of religiously mixed love. A story that is both traditional and cultural in appearances on the multi-ethnic Balkans for centuries. Even today it is not unusual to see a Serb in love with a Muslim woman. New generations are successfully trying to overcome the hatred and pain sowed by their ancestors.
Jolie was supposed to help them in achieving that. Instead she did the opposite. Ignorance is never an excuse; she can ignore reality but reality will not ignore her.
She potentially had an excellent artistic story on the reconciliation of Balkan enemies. What better story than to use love to reconcile quarreling parties? What better way to win an Oscar by telling the true story of a tragic love.
Sarajevo still remembers the tragedy of the Bosnian couple Serb Bosko Brkic and Admira Ismić, a Muslim woman, killed by a sniper on March 19, 1993; Bosnian Romeo and Juliet who left an indelible message by their death. A powerful message of eternal Love.
Unfortunately, ignorant Angelina did not recognize the message. She did not send such a message by her movie. She killed love once again. She raped the truth.
Therefore, she is unwanted in Serbia. That’s why she is “persona non grata.”
