Belief in the same God is no shield against the fierce nationalism of ethnic Albanian extremists in Kosovo. Thousands of Slavic Muslims, who refer to themselves as Bosniaks, have fled the Serbian province since NATO-led peacekeeping troops rolled in nearly six months ago. Bosniak refugees here say they are being driven out by ethnic Albanians, most of them fellow Muslims.

The soft-spoken gentleman with war in his eyes implored the young faces in front of him: "Try to imagine you are the refugee, the person without ID. You have your past, and you will have your future, and that is what will keep you alive." Besnik Doli has lived through displacement, and the pain of it still lives within him. Forced out of his Kosovo home at a moment's notice, the civil engineer and his family shared an Albanian camp with half a million other refugees for four months last year.

Just a few steps from Subja Gashi's bed, chopped bits of a freight pallet are burning in a small stove, and none of the warmth touches her. It drifts up and away, through the cracks in the ruined Coca-Cola factory's roof, high above the bed where Gashi spends each day and night under a tent of synthetic, gray blankets.

A group of 81 refugees won a temporary reprieve Friday from being sent back to war-ravaged Kosovo when an Australian court delayed a decision on its return. A total of 259 Kosovo refugees were due to be returned this weekend, after their temporary safe-haven visas expire at midnight today. They were among the last of 4,000 ethnic Albanian refugees from the Serbian province remaining in Australia.

Each Friday, as the muezzin calls Muslims to prayer at a medieval mosque in old Belgrade, a few Serbs wait outside with the beggars, watching for ethnic Albanians. The Serbs are refugees who fled Kosovo after a NATO-led force took control of Serbia's southern province in June and the ethnic Albanian majority began to drive Serbs from their homes. Kosovo Serbs don't come to Belgrade's mosque looking for revenge. Real estate is on their minds.
