A local election outside Sarajevo has produced some notable news related to tolerance and government in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Beset with obstacles to effective governance since the Dayton Peace Agreement in late 1995, Bosnia remains riven in many ways by religious and ethnic discord between its Muslim, ethnic Croat, and ethnic Serb communities.

>Babic, a trained economist and former finance minister on the canton level, hailed the choice as "a model for Europe and Islam" in an AFP story.<

Babic, you can get lost. You sound like Erdogan of Turkey. Yuck;(

In Bosnia--and not only there, of course--Muslims pretend to be the eternal victims. They cannot fool me.

Islam is the reason why the whole Balcan is such a mess.

Not to mention decades of the dictatorial rule of "Tito" whose suspicions re his rivals left no one to fill the void when he finally died.

"Babic told AFP that she never wore one (veil) until turning to Islam for comfort after the death of her husband, with whom she has three children, in the Bosnian conflict of 1992-95. She now heads a civic group that brings together the families of Muslim men killed in that fighting."

There are several such groups in Bosnia, i.e., Women of Sreb comes to mind, but over the years these groups have become more political.
