Wahhabis have purchased a large tract of land inside the Bosnian Serb Republic and have issued warnings to local ethnic Croatians that they plan to build another Wahhabi base on their property.
Wahhabis claim that they have purchased 400 dunums of land near the city of Derventa and aim to get more to build a base which they claim will be for hunting.
A dunum is a Muslim measure for land that varies in size but refers to the amount of land that a man can plow in one day.

The Islamist base is planned to be located in the village of Kovacevci, located close to the ethnic Croatian area of Plehana.
Graffiti has appeared in Plehana saying that Bosniak Muslims will take away local land. As a result, the local ethnic Croat minority is in fear.
Bosnia’s terrorism expert Dzevad Galijasevic says that the planned base near Plehana is “only one of the wings of the Wahhabi octopus” that begins in Sarajevo. Galijasevic says that Plehana is not an accidental choice because it is inside the Serb Republic and controls important geographic area.
The district police says that they have no information on any organized Wahhabi movement in the area.
The Wahhabi plans for Plehana, say analysts, are similar as for Gornja Maoca, a leading Wahhabi center in Bosnia.
The village of Gornja Maoca in Bosnia was once a Serbian village but Muslims killed them, took over their land and the village, very inaccessible now, is one of the leading bases for Wahhabis.
The state law is not enforced in Gornja Maoca. Istead, the village has imposed the fundamentalist Islamic Sharia law. Public schools teach Arabic and road signs are written in Arabic script. State authorities have shunned away from the village.
Security service in Bosnia has been placed on alert recently after reports surfaced that Bosnian Muslims in Gornja Maoca have organized military excercises.
The leader of Gornja Maoca Wahhabis has condemned the recent decision by Bosnia’s authorities to send arms to the Afghan government.

In a statement on their web site, putvjernika.com, Gornja Maoca Wahhabis have said that arming the Afghani government is a clear help given to the “occupiers” that are waging war against Islam and Allah.
“We pray to the almighty Allah so those [weapons] become a loot for the mijahadeen with which they can kill Allah’s enemies from the American, NATO and Afghani marionette forces,” says the statement.
Spokesman for the Prosecutors office in Bosnia, Boris Grubesic, says that his office monitors “events on certain internet sites”.
The leader of Gornja Maoca Muslims, Nusret Imamovic, says that suicide attacks are not prohibited to pious and Allah-loving Muslims.
“The report quoted Bosnia-Herzegovina Ministry of Security sources as saying a large number of Wahhabis moved to the region under the pretext of helping to build a mosque.”
There may be a mosque involved in the plans, but that doesn’t rule out far more, after the fashion of locales such as “Islamberg.” But if any law enforcement action should ensue, the resulting propaganda will fixate on the claim of a defiled mosque. “Large number of Wahhabis’ streaming into Bosnia-Herzegovina,” fromÂ World Tribune via GeoStrategy Direct, January 19 (thanks to JW):
Muslim terrorists in the Balkans have established a terrorist training camp in northeast Bosnia-Herzegovina, according to a report in the newspaper Dnevni List.
The Mostar-based Croatian newspaper reported Jan. 6, quoting security sources that the special training camp is located near Gornja Moaca in the northeastern part of the country.
U.S.Â intelligence agencies have been closely monitoring Muslims in the Balkans amid concerns that fundamentalist Muslims have been recruiting there.
Intelligence reports continued to surface that Al Qaida and other Islamist groups have been aggressively recruiting Europeans and others who do not appear to be from the Middle East or South Asia as part of plans to thwart western counterterrorism security measures.
The report stated that residents near Gornja Maoca, a village between Tuzla and Brcko, are concerned because “a large number of the Wahhabis have arrived in the area over the last few months.”
