One of the worst manifestations of the ongoing cluelessness about jihad among American officialdom is the support for an independent Kosovo. Here again, misinformation, disinformation, and wishful thinking seem to rule the day.
But now there is an attempt to counter all that. The American Council for Kosovo is a U.S. nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting a better American understanding of the Serbian province of Kosovo and Metohija. I am honored to have accepted a position on the organization's Advisory Board.
Specifically the Council seeks to educate the American public and policymakers about the fact that an independent Kosovo -- now being contemplated in some quarters as a "solution" to the problems there -- would be a rogue state dominated by jihad terrorists and criminals, as well as lead to the eradication of the remaining Christian Serbs. To say the least, this would not be consistent with America's interests and values.
