Sadly, the West continues to support a new Islamic state of Kosovo. Currently, ethnic Albanians - Muslims - run rampant destroying non-Muslim businesses and Holy places. Minority Serbs have no protection beyond NATO troops patrolling Serbian neighborhoods. What's left of them.
Freedom from death: Armed NATO soldier guards elderly Kosovo Serbs who could be killed by province's Muslims who seek independence.
But the AP would have you believe the Albanian Muslims are an oppressed minority seeking freedom:
Thousands of wildly cheering pro-independence demonstrators marched through Kosovo's gritty capital Monday as a sense of euphoria swept the breakaway province preparing to gain statehood early next year.
Kosovars, assured of staunch U.S. support and a promise of recognition from all but one EU country, reveled in hopes that a decades-old dream may be within reach despite fierce opposition by Serbia and Russia.
International mediators failed to negotiate a compromise on Kosovo's future by Monday's U.N. deadline.

NATO, which maintains 16,000 peacekeepers in Kosovo, has boosted street patrols in a show of force aimed at discouraging extremists on both sides of the ethnic divide.
"I don't believe it's possible for Serbs and Albanians to live together peacefully," said Mimoza Sejdiu, 24, an ethnic Albanian at Monday's rally. "I don't see a common future as citizens of one country."
In a sign of underlying tensions, Kosovo police said that over the weekend, unknown assailants tossed a bottle of flaming liquid into a vacant house owned by Serbs in the town of Gnjilane southeast of Pristina and sprayed this menacing message: "Death to Serbs."
The religion of peace. Apparently, the NATO forces are keeping the Serbian extremists under control. But the ethnic Albanian extremists are having no problems expressing their disdain.
