Destruction of Islamic Heritage in the Kosova War

Destruction of Islamic Heritage in the Kosova War A new book, edited by Robert Elsie. About forty percent of all the mosques in this country were purposefully damaged or destroyed. This is a tragic statistic and it is important for the world to see and understand what happened. The information and photos in this volume provide dramatic proof of the destruction wrought upon Islamic architecture and, indeed upon the Islamic community and Albanians in general by crazed Serbian paramilitaries, by the Serbian police, and by the Serbian military of the Milošević period.
