You failed to protect the people, now you do everything to increase tensions when it is not warranted nor advantageous, yet for any real political or societal improvements, your are to concerned for personal benefits. 20 years since the Bosniaks supported the SDA (muslim party), the results have been 100 000 dead, factories closed (notable exception are tobacco factories and breweries), and a couple of mosques built.

Now the Bosniaks are to blame for "turning away from Islam", but worse yet you have accomplished something that even Karadzic and his cronies never could, to (at least partially) justify their policies and persecution. At the same time the Bosniaks continue to suffer from both Bosnian Serb policies and your own actions. Only a couple months ago the head of the Islamic Community was accusing a politician from Srebrenica, a Bosniak, for hatred and intolerance of Islam.... He should never even address them except with an apology an penance...

Also, Izetbegovic who is currently the political "leader" of the Bosniaks and his family are as guilty.
