800 Years End in Distress by William Dorich

Having attended the 800th anniversary of the Serbian Orthodox Church in Los Angeles this weekend it was impressive that some 40 priests and Bishops participated in this important church anniversary, most of whom praised St. Sava and the preservation of Serbdom. They came from Greece, Russia, Canada, South America and cities across this nation.
While several spoke of the crisis the church faced in the 1990’s Balkan Civil Wars, the Greek Bishop did not address why the Greeks did not come to the defense and rescue of the Serbian people—they were too consumed with the Serbian use of their name “Macedonia” not that their fellow Orthodox Christians were being murdered and their villages burned… there was little to no support from other fellow Orthodox Christians in Romania, Bulgaria, Russia and Slovenia who managed to look the other way while hundreds of Serbian churches were destroyed.
The Famous Billy Graham Organization went into action and came to the Balkans, not to defend Christians, but to steal Christian souls. Samaritan’s Purse gave hundreds of thousands, 95% of their donations went to Bosnian Muslim refugees and 5% was promised to Serbian refugees who outnumbered Muslim and Croat Refugees by more than 30%. How many of these “Orthodox” Christians contributed to rebuilding hundreds of Serbian churches, we can count them on a few fingers… This was not Christianity’s finest hour…Meanwhile, Rome proved to be easily distracted by her own religious hypocrisy and double standards. Instead of providing help they smugly celebrate the demise of so many Orthodox churches they tried to destroy since the “Great Schism” in 1054.
Recent events during the 800th commemoration in Chicago raised a number of issues concerning the Constitution for American Serbs without a full explanation of why the Canadian and South American dioceses were quietly abandoned and their bishops were not invited to Chicago…the discovery that the Eastern Bishop’s fist duty after the Chicago commemoration was to go to the U.S. State Department in Washington to those who were responsible for thousands of Serbian deaths, $100 Billion in bombing damage and the destruction of the manufacturing base that employed nearly 2 million Serbians before the war. The final nail in the Serbian coffin was the dismembering of former Yugoslavia and the gift of giving Albanians, 60% of whom were not even born in Serbia their independence in Kosovo. It’s a bit insulting that one of our Bishops was required to pay homage to the State Department who perpetrated these war crimes. All in violation of the UN Charter, the NATO Treaty, the Geneva Convention and the Helsinki Final Act. Arrogantly the 78 days of bombing was perpetrated against Serbs who were American allies in two World Wars and who paid the ultimate price of losing a combined death toll of 58% of her population in two World Wars only to be abandoned and vilified by Secretary Albright, whose very life and that of her father were rescued by a dozen Serbians including journalists Pavle Jankovic of Politika—a personal friend of Albright's father, Ambassador Korbel … those Serbs secretly arranged their escape from the Czech Republic to Belgrade, then on to Cairo and finally ending in Great Britain, at great personal risk… today, this same State Department made the word “Serb” synonymous with “Evil.” Why are there no explanations to the American Serbs why we are having any dialogue with that department when the outer wall of sanctions have remained in place for 20 years and unemployment in Serbia remains high at 30%? We did more for the Japanese who bombed Pearl Harbor and the rebuilding of N**i German cities as the U.S. insultingly refuses to lift a finger to rebuild Serbia.
Being in my 80’s I am conflicted with my church when my Bishop preaches “Darwinism” or do we Serbs now believe that in the Garden of Eden, Adam was a Baboon? Are we members of a church or a tribe in the zoo? I am also told that Bishop Midic in Belgrade told followers: “Their soul dies with their body.” So, we are not going to heaven or there is no longer a life after death and the “Resurrection” is a sick joke?
There are thousands of Masons in our churches throughout the world who refer to God as “The Great Architect Of The Universe,” that’s not Jesus Christ or God…is it now the “Body & Blood” of Buda, Krishna or Mohammad as the acceptable deity during Holy Communion?
Has “Globalism” gone mad through the behavior of the Orthodox Christian clergy? Are we so committed to this Ecumenists agenda that we will be under the jurisdiction of the Patriarch of Constantinople whose loyalty to Rome is greater than his loyalty to Orthodoxy? We were told our Patriarch was ill and in the hospital and could not attend this commemoration in San Gabriel… but why was this important announcement made by the Serbian military and not our Council of Bishops? Is the Serbian Orthodox Church now being run by the government in Belgrade?
I do not find it the least reassuring to discover that a member of the Serbian priesthood came to the United States in 1983 and is alleged to have a background in UDBA, the secret police of Serbia, in order to spy on our American priesthood and on our churches. We are also told by this priest that to be “Politically Correct” we must now refrain from calling our faith the “Serbian Orthodox Church,” but to refer to ourselves only as “Orthodox Christians.” He says: “Serbian is a nationality not a church”…Spare me the PC Guilt Trip! Apparently 800 years of ethnic identity goes against the global agenda? This is the same “globalists” mindset that came right out of Tito’s “Brotherhood and Unity” madness and we all know what that did to our families and relatives during 50 years of Communist rule that took over Yugoslavia.
I am a double victim of that Balkan Genocide losing 17 relatives who were burned to death in the Serbian Orthodox Church in Vojnic, Croatia in 1942 and the last 5 relatives of my name who were too old and too sick to flee during “Operation Storm” in 1995 when 230,000 Serbs were “ethnically cleansed” from Croatia…I was notified a month later by the Red Cross they were found with their throats slit…we also know that 15 retired American Generals came to Croatia to train and receive secret shipments of military equipment and the same disgusting American generals who arranged to have the radar turn off so the Croatians could bomb and strafe those fleeing Serbs...a War Crime by every definition...
My weekend commemoration was shattered when I heard that for the first time in our 125-year history, a Petition is being circulated and signed by both clergy and laity calling for the removal of a Bishop—this is unprecedented in our church. Have divisions in the United States become this political?
As someone whose cousin was a priest in Masontown, Pennsylvania for decades and an Archimandrite, my wife’s uncle who served the Western Diocese for 50 years, I cannot fathom the depth of this kind of corrosive behavior will have on our Serbian community. It is not up to us, the parishioners, to decide who is qualified and where they serve the Lord—those are decisions made by our Patriarch and the hierarchy.
The words of United States Justice, Oliver Wendell Holmes seem appropriate here:
“When I want to understand what is happening today or try to decide what will happen tomorrow, I look back.”
In closing, I recall the eloquent words of William Arthur Ward:
“Each of us will one day be judged by our standard of life—
not by our standard of living; by our measure of giving—
not by our measure of wealth; by our simple goodness—
not by our seeming greatness.”

IN 1990 BEFORE THE WAR IN THE BALKANS AND THE NATO (U.S.) BOMBING OF SERBIA FOR 78 DAYS THAT DID $100 BILLION IN INFRASTRUCTURE DAMAGE...The Serbian Dinar was 97 to $1.00 U.S. Dollar...in 1994 the Serbs printed this $500 BILLION DINAR NOTE...it was not worth the paper it was written on and could not buy a loaf of bread...This currency was brought to me by journalist Peter Brock on the night I was the Master of Ceremonies for the Kosovo Charity Fund banquet at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills. Peter was one of our guest speakers, he was an American journalist in the Balkans the first two years of that ugly Civil War. I published his book, Media Cleansing: Dirty Reporting...www.gmbooks.com

THIS IS THE DEPTH OF FINANCIAL MANIPULATION THAT THE CLINTON ADMINISTRATION USED TO DESTROY A SOVEREIGN NATION that did not attack another NATO country or violate NATO Article #5 IN ANY WAY...If the United States is willing to resort to this level of contempt for human life and was willing to deny Serbia food and medicine as a weapon of war—while secretly arming Serbia's enemies—resorted to daily bombings of Na**lm on the Vietnamese killing tens of thousands—put Japanese-Americans in American internment camps; dropped atomic bombs on Japan, then we need to STOP pretending the United States of America has a moral compass.

In 1999, the U.S. and NATO dropped more bombs on Serbia in 78 days than were dropped on all of Yugoslavia in 4 years of WWII. Our military emptied out 60 years of weapons storage and even resorted to using experimental weapons on the Serbian people. The corporate stock of those American weapons builders sky-rocketed...SO, STOP PI***NG ON SERBIA's LEG AND CONVINCING THEM ITS RAINING...THIS WAS ALL ABOUT MONEY AND POWER...THE United States HAS LOW OR NO MORALS WHEN WE STOOP TO THESE INHUMAN TACTICS...In January, 1961, President Eisenhower was right when he warned the nation about the "Military Industrial Complex."

In our book— Serbia: Faces & Places by my co author Val Rajic, I was privileged to have been given exclusive access to photograph the interior of the St. Sava Cathedral in Belgrade that was under construction in 2012 when Val and I wrote and published this book. Val just sent me this current image of the major dome in the Cathedral, an impressive construction accomplishment. The Serbian people will one day be very proud of this construction that took over 100 years to complete and a Cathedral site that suffered through two World Wars and the $100 Billion in bombing destruction of Yugoslavia in 1999 by the USA and NATO. The Cathedral of St. Sava is one of the largest Orthodox churches in the Balkans and ranks among the largest church buildings in the world.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Dr. Michael J. Young, a practicing physician for 3 decades sheds light on the current debacle of the medical health delivery system in America. His powerful book is an important message and honest look behind and around the process of health care delivery, from the perspective of both patient and provider.

The book examines and reviews how one experiences medical treatment from both sides of the table. The significant obstacles patients endure, as well as the exasperation many of the truly dedicated medical professionals feel, has been assessed. The controlling arrogance of the insurance industry and the clout pharmaceutical companies have over us have just become overwhelming. Dr. Young recalls a time in his 30-year medical practice when these industries worked with, and for, us. Today, they appear to be the opposition. Patients have essentially no control and doctors have lost the ability to direct their own profession. Profit-driven corporations dictate how our care is now governed. This is an undeniable problem. We are all frustrated with how we are so restricted, so vulnerable as we struggle to navigate through our health care system. Most painful is how we are treated by the medical system itself. Absent today is the sense of concern and empathy we used to associate with the medical profession. We yearn to be treated with compassion; to have trust and confidence in those engaged in taking care of us. Unfortunately, medicine has become a mechanism of profit. It has become a business whose own bureaucratic tendencies have spread like a powerful, aggressive disease.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Dr. Michael J. Young is a graduate of Indiana University, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa with an undergraduate degree in Biology. He then matriculated to Rush Medical College for his medical degree, and subsequently to Loyola University Medical Center, to complete his residency in Urology. Dr. Young was certified by the American Board of Urology, and went into private practice upon completion of his training. He was the Section Chairman of Urology at two Chicago area medical centers, as well as the Residency Program Director at these institutions for The Department of Urology, University of Illinois at Chicago. Upon retiring from clinical practice, Dr. Young retained his Clinical Assistant Professorship in the Department of Urology at the University of Illinois. Currently, he is involved in the innovation and development of surgical and medical devices and instrumentation at the university. Dr. Young is an avid photographer, traveler, and golfer.

Gary Geiecki (pronounced Gee-ecki) is a skilled assassin. He's been an unofficial CIA killer for the past twenty years and has decided to retire. There is no such thing as a truly perfect assassin and Gary was no exception. He was, however, very good. Gary left a wide trail of bodies behind him, over his long and productive career. Riddled with childhood insecurities and social awkwardness Gary desperately tries to move forward with his life after retirement. He quickly finds it is far easier to kill someone else than it is to kill the ghosts of the past. Gary soon learns that what is in the past doesn't always stay there. His greatest enemy... a man thought long dead... is back and seeking vengeance. Gary must now fight for not only his life, but everyone he holds dear and finally put this last ghost to rest. Gary will learn that the old saying You can't go home again isn't exactly true. You can go home again, but you shouldn't.
