The Rape Of Bosnia

March 07, 1993

With indignation, I read the so-called rape testimonies reported by a Croatian women's group, vilifying Serbian soldiers. Your article states that "the rapes by Muslim and Croatian soldiers are of a different order of magnitude."

Thousands of Serbian people were forced from their homes and are in Croatian camps now. They are suffering the same tragedy as they did during World War II, when the Serbian population was decimated by Croatia's Nazi puppet regime. If the Serbs were not massacred, they were rounded up and shipped to Nazi forced labor camps.

I do not say that rape of women in war or peace is justified. However, the rapes by Muslim and Croatian soldiers of Serbian women must be condemned, too, as there is no difference, no matter what the nationality of the rapist.
