Bosnians Happy With Life But Distrust Each Other

Full Article

Those surveyed were united in their distrust of each other, with only 7.2 percent saying they had faith in other people


on the otherhand...

Eighty-six percent identified themselves as Bosnian citizens and only 14 percent solely with their ethnic or religious group, which was an encouraging sign, Priesner said.

Most agreed that the system of government, dividing the country into two autonomous regions, was too complicated and should change but the three ethnic groups differed on how it should change.

That is exactly the way it is supposed to be. We are all Bosnians. There should be no divisions/entities in Bosnia. We need bridges, not lines of separation.

Here is what should be done, and I will quote Ed Vulliamy:

"And why should victims reconcile with the perpetrators of crimes that are not even admitted, let alone reckoned with? Reckoning comes when the Serbs build a monument to what they did at Srebrenica, and not just at Srebrenica - that is the fundamental point. The reckoning needs to be everywhere else as well. When the Serbs build a monument to those who perished at Omarska, for instance. Then the reconciliation can begin."
