Muslim Sitcom

Posted 13 January 2007 - The Hague (NL):


A Canadian TV Channel last week started a TV program that exactly forms the best cure there is to intercultural differences: make people laugh about them. Little Mosque on the prairie was first broadcast last Tuesday and attracted over 2 million viewers.

Time for some relaxation this weekend - at last - and for socialising with friends. I haven't spent any normal weekend at home since the one before Christmas..

Posted 22 November 2005 - The Hague (NL):


Bosnian leaders met in Wastington (US) today, ten years after signing the Dayton Accords, and decided that the Bosnian consitution will be amended to allow for one single president instead of the current three (one for each ethnic group). It was also decided that the peacekeeping troops will stay in Bosnia for another year.

Bosnia-Herzegovina is a very typical country which has been severely touched by the 1990s Balkan War. Being the home to three very distinct ethnic groups (Catholic Croats, Orthodox Serbs and Moslim Bosnians), Bosnia-Herzegovina was at the heart of this war.

The Dayton Agreement retained Bosnia and Herzegovina's international boundaries and created a joint multi-ethnic and democratic government. This national government was charged with conducting foreign, diplomatic, and fiscal policy. Also recognized was a second tier of government comprised of two entities roughly equal in size: the Bosniak/Croat Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Bosnian Serb-led Republika Srpska (RS). The differences between the two entities are enormous. In terms of economy, religion, language, but also writing: Cyrillic in the Republika Srpska and Roman in the Bosnian Federation.

Bosnia still has a long way to go trying to bridge the gap struck by the war. They are still far from having recovered only the houses, like this photo on the Bosnian-Croation border clearly shows. I took it on the way from Sarajevo (BA) to Sisak (HR) in April 2005.
