Zitat des Tages von Alija Izetbegovic:
Our goal: the Islamization of Muslims. Our methods: to believe and to struggle.
As far as the sovereignty of Bosnia-Hercegovina is concerned we agreed to have limited sovereignty for a limited time and that is clear from the Dayton Agreement.
Bosnia is a complicated country: three religions, three nations and those 'others'. Nationalism is strong in all three nations; in two of them there are a lot of racism, chauvinism, separatism; and now we are supposed to make a state out of that.
We Bosniaks would for sure fight for integrity of Bosnia.
In these negotiations we are not a helpless object, although great world powers are involved. We play an active role and try to influence our destiny; we have our own trump cards and we use them.
The international community is pushing things forward in Bosnia... but it is doing it at expense of the Muslim people. I feel it as an injustice, these are the things that I cannot live with.
Life is a dangerous thing. Insecurity is the price of living.
Advantages of freedom do not have to be proved by something outside freedom itself. It is its own underwriter.
It is difficult to help a man without hurting his pride. Everyone wants to be a giver and not a receiver.
I believe that the people, instead of pretty lies, should be told the truth, no matter how ugly it may be. What can we do, destiny hasn't been kind to us; but, with the help of God, we will prevail.
A starry sky is equally interesting to a scientist, a mystic, an ethics scholar, and a poet. Looking at the stars, each experiences something different, and each sees his own picture.
Religion, as it is understood in the West, does not lead toward progress, and science does not lead toward humanism.
We have no rational evidence that there exists another world, but we have a clear feeling that man does not exist only to produce and to consume.
When you are in prison, you have but one desire: freedom. If you fall ill in prison, you do not think about freedom - you think about health. Health is, therefore, more important than freedom.
Islam is a way of living rather than a way of thinking.
The ninth, the worst circle of the Inferno - Dante intended it for traitors.
