KOSOVO’S unilateral declaration of independence from Serbia was imminent and set to be recognised by about 100 countries, its Prime Minister Hashim Thaci said.
“It is a done (deal). Everybody knows it. None of the authorities from Belgrade can affect the positive development of a declaration and recognition of the independence of Kosovo,” Mr Thaci said.

He blamed political and economic grievances as the main source of agitation that spurs the Muslim extremist faction.
* Yes, the Muhammadan grievance theater. The usual BS.
“The general American population, though educated, still [has] this misconception that Islam advocates the use of violence against civilians,” said Sameena Usman, government relations representative for the Council on American-Islamic Relations in San Francisco, who attended the talk. “I think it’s really important for speakers like Esposito to explain the important economic and political issues.”
