The coming Balkan caliphate : the threat of radical Islam to Europe and the West by Christopher Deliso( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With all eyes currently focused on the widening conflict in the Middle East and the terrorist threat coming from the region, the West is in danger of overlooking a potent new battleground in the greater "war on terror"--The Balkans. This historically volatile region saw some of the worst violence of the late 20th century in the Yugoslav Wars of Secession. During these conflicts, stunningly shortsighted and politically motivated policies of the United States and its allies directly allowed Islamic mujahedin and terrorist-related entities to establish a foothold in the region--just as with the progenitors of the Taliban a decade earlier in Afghanistan. Although the 9/11 attacks caused a partial reassessment of Western policy, it may already be too late for a region still largely ignored. The proliferation of foreign fundamentalist groups has had a cancerous effect on traditional Balkan Islamic communities, challenging their legitimacy in unprecedented and often violent ways. Well-funded groups like the Saudi-backed Wahabbis continue to exploit internal schisms within local communities, while the international administrations in Bosnia and Kosovo have actually strengthened the grip of local mafia groups--business partners of terrorists. Worst of all, the Western peacekeepers' chronic "don't rock the boat" mentality has allowed extremist groups to operate unchallenged. Nevertheless, regional demographic and cultural trends, coinciding with an increasingly hostile attitude in the larger Muslim world over Western military actions and perceived symbolic provocations, indicate that the lawless Balkans will become increasingly valuable as a strategic base for Islamic radicals over the next two decades. Utilizing the post-al-Qaeda tactics of a decentralized jihad carried out through small, independent cells ("leaderless resistance") while seeking to fundamentally and violently remold Muslim societies, such Balkan-based extremists pose a unique and tangible threat to Western security

Hidden Macedonia : the mystic lakes of Ohrid and Prespa by Christopher Deliso( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The tectonic lakes of Macedonia, Ohrid and Prespa, are among the most ancient and enthralling in the world, abundant in rare wildlife and and the seat of mediaeval kingdoms, richly endowed with sacred shrines, mysteries and watery legends. In this account of a circular summertime journey with his wife and young son around the lakeshores, passing through three countries, Greece, Albania and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, the author seeks out the spirit of the lakes, through encounters with fishermen, philosophers, archaeologists and snakes." "Getting below the surface of everyday life and revealing the deep historical wounds and controversies that are still manifest in this divided and much fought-over land, this travelogue is also an evocative and amusing chronicle of travels in one of the most stunning and historically significant areas of Europe, one which, however, still remains largely unknown in the West."--BOOK JACKET
