    Otto Von Habsburgs Ambiguous Legacy

    Chronicles Magazine

    (...)

    Habsburg was an enthusiastic supporter of the Jihadist side in the Bosnian civil war, visited Sarajevo repeatedly during that war, and had several meetings with Alija Izetbegovic. At his funeral, on Habsburgs specific instructions, the religious leader of Bosnias Muslims, reis-ul-ulema Mustafa effendi Ceric, joined Roman Catholic and Jewish clerics in prayer. No Orthodox Christians were invited. It should be noted that in a 2005 interview Ceric called Britain one of the early trophies of Islam in Europe. He counts among his international activities participation in radical Islamic groups and events, as well as links with Muslim activists banned from the U.S. for terrorist funding and phony Islamic charities tainted by terrorist links. After 9/11 Ceric was in the forefront of crying discrimination when the U.S. moved to close Bosnan-connected charities supporting Muslim terrorists.

    Habsburg was a strong supporter of Bill Clintons Kosovo war and repeatedly called for the bombing of Belgrade, starting in 1993, six years before it happened in March 1999. His support of the KLA terrorists and of Kosovos independence was based on a mix of visceral Serbophobia and outright mendacity, earning him a badge of shame in the form of the morbid quasi-states golden medal of freedom. As the ruins of Christian Orthodox churches and monasteries were smoldering nearby, he attended ceremonies naming Kosovos town squares after him and his family. When he died, Kosovos foreign minister sent a message of condolence to the family, stressing that Otto von Habsburg was a great friend of Kosovo [who] conveyed to the citizens of Kosovo the message of freedom Later on, Von Habsburg became a great defender of the idea of our independence. Kosovos president Atifete Jahjaga bewailed the loss of an irreplaceable friend who will be considered and remembered forever.

    Habsburg has recalled as an epiphany the day he first spontaneously answered the nationality question with I am a European, but his definition of that term was steeped in a rudely Huntingtonian paradigm vis--vis Orthodox Christianity. He supported the destruction of the Njegos Chapel on Mt. Lovćen in Montenegro and Montenegrins eventual conversion from Orthodoxy to some form of union with Rome. His attitude to Orthodoxy was in sharp contrast to his conciliatory benevolence to Islam. His oft-repeated response to the issue of Christian-Muslim relations was, We are made to understand each other. Having read the sacred books of Islam he has claimed to have found much Christian wisdom there. While cautiously warning about unforeseen consequences of integrating Turkey into the European community, he repeatedly praised the positive potential of Turkeys revived leadership in the Islamic world. The same week when his father Emperor Charles was beatified in Rome in October 2004, his son addressed an academic symposium on an allegedly emerging common Mediterranean civilization that includes both Christian Europe and Muslim nations along its African and Asian shores. On April 9, 2002, he told the Christian Science Monitor (Europe, Prepare to Greet Islam) that all nations bordering the Mediterranean Seaincluding those in North Africa and the Middle Easthave a place in his broad vision for tomorrows Europe. He had never made a similar declaration about any such place for Russia, let alone Serbia. His flawed concept has come to be known as Eurabia, and represents the greatest threat to Europes demographic, cultural and spiritual survival in the decades ahead.

    Otto von Habsburg spent four years in the United States during the war but his understanding of this countrys social, political and cultural dynamics was eccentric at best. On April 20, 2005, he told the NPR, There are many nationalities making up America. There are four states that in twenty years will have a majority of Spanish language [citizens]; and I dont think thats a catastrophe. Its a very good thing. Im already well located. I have many children and all my children speak Spanish too. He went on to indicate his view that North African Muslim states should join the European Union.

    House of Habsburg has allways been rotten to the core. Not like the lineage of Hohenzollern..

    Forget nobility, they are traitors. Their interest is to perpetrate their riches and influences. They would become Muslim in a heartbeat when they are warranted their 'nobility'.

    I trust none of the nobility.

    I am shocked that Habsburg would say such a thing. His house was not rotten always. They did fight the Turks for a very long time. Maybe he still harbours hate for the Serbs, who murdered the Austrian heir to the throne, which sparked WO I?
