Most of the basic literature, while talking about WWII Independent State of Croatia (ISC), does not fail to mention that entire Bosnia-Herzegovina was part of this Nazi satellite. Whether the source is Jewish written "Encyclopedia of the Holocaust" or recently written book by British schollar Professor Cleve Ponting ("Armageddon") there is no dispute in the literature about the total count of the population of that country: 

Out of total 6.5 to 7 million people of (ISC) 
round 3.5 million were Croats 
round 2 million were Serbs 
Muslims totalled between 700,000 and 750,000 
40,000 were Jews, 30,000 Gypsies

It is obvious that Croatian fascists were at enormous task to exterminate almost a third of the population they got to control. This is why they tried hard to atract the Bosnian Muslims to help them. The response was overwhelming... 

Encyclopedia of the Holocaust, Edition 1990, Volume 2, Pages 706 and 707, entry Husseini, Hajj Amin Al ; The main Hitler's supporter among Palestinian Arabs... 
It so happened that Husseini made his contribution to the Axis war effort in his capacity as a Muslim, rather than as an Arab leader, by recruiting and organizing in RECORD TIME, during the spring of 1943, BOSNIAN MUSLIM BATTALIONS in Croatia comprising some TWENTY THOUSAND MEN. These MUSLIM VOLUNTEER units, called Hanjar (Sword), were put in WAFFEN-SS fought Yugoslav partisans in Bosnia, and carried out police and security duties in Hungary. THEY PARTICIPATED IN THE MASSACRE OF CIVILIANS IN BOSNIA and VOLUNTEERED TO JOIN IN THE HUNT FOR JEWS IN CROATIA... The Germans made a point of publicizing the fact that Husseini had flown from Berlin to Sarajevo for the sole purpose of giving his blessing to the Muslim army and inspecting its arms and training exercises.

A photograph, on page 704, shows al-Husseini inspecting Muslim troops in Bosnia and saluting them fascist way. The same photograph appears in "The Marshall Cavendish Illustrated Encyclopedia of WWII". 

TWENTY THOUSAND (20,000) Muslim volunteers for the Nazi SS - out of total population of 700,000 - that's a HUGE response.  

Time-Life books: "The SS", Edition 1989 

Bosnian Muslims of Hanjar SS division study anti-Semitic literature (page 161). 

Muslims are called by Croatian Ustashi to volunteer into Croatian Black Legion SS (page 159). 

Many different European nations were called by Himmler to join SS... and many did (Belgians, Danes, Norwegians,... even Russian Cossacks). A photograph on page 160 shows happy SS volunteers from The Hague leaving for a training camp in Germany. Himmler knew he would not get Serbs to volunteer in the SS and they are among rare people not called. 

"Uniforms, Organizations and History of the Waffen-SS" by R. Bender and Hugh Taylor 

The following photograph is on display at the Imperial War Museum in London: Heinrich Himmler inspects the Bosnian Muslim 13th Waffen-SS Division.  

"The Marshal Cavendish Illustrated Encyclopedia of World War II", Edition 1985, Vol. 10, page 2824, while talking about different SS divisions says (quote:) 
Then there were atempts to exploit nationalist sectarian groups in Yugoslavia, raising anti-Serb forces to fight against Tito's partisans. This produced the "Handschar" Division: the 13th Waffen Gebirgsdivision der S.S. This was a force of Croatian volunteers, raised in 1943 and originally entitled "Bosnien-Herzegowina". A Moslem unit, its men wore fez, complete with silver skull-and-crossbones and eagle... When put to work in Yugoslavia it did little damage to Tito's partisans but showed itself adept in dealing out enthusiastic brutality to Yugoslav civilians. [We know which ones as they were themselves - Muslim and operated in Independent State of Croatia which left Serbs, Jews and Gypsies as the only targets of the brutality]. It was eventually disbanded and reformed as a mountain regiment, retaining the same name. 

Even less efective were the Albanian S.S. volunteers, from whom the 21st Waffen Gebirgsdivision "Skanderbeg" was formed in 1944. Its chief problem was desertion, which finally necessitated its disbandment. The same held true for the short-lived "Kama" [dagger], a force of Croatians. 
(End quote). 

NOTE: Today, it was Imperial America to use ancient method of Divide et Impera ... and "to exploit nationalist sectarian groups in Yugoslavia, rising anti-Serb forces" in order to dismantle Yugoslavia and ethnically cleans the Serbian people. 

A photograph, on page 1062 (Vol. 4) of the same encyclopedia shows Ustashi SS Black Legion, so much praised by today's Croatia . The caption underneath the photograph says (quote:) 
Young volunteers take the oath of allegiance on joining a Croatian legion of the Waffen S.S. The Signal caption reads: "Young men follow in their father's footsteps. The independent State of Croatia is allied to the Axis powers. Her youth fights for the future of Europe. The young soldiers of the Croatian divisions, with their country's coat of arms [Ustashi red and white checkerboard] on their steel helmets, swear allegiance to Adolf Hitler. Their fathers themselves fought, in a spirit of brotherhood, beside the Germans and the Austrians." 
(End quote.) 

And how little have changed! Substitute "Axis powers" for "NATO powers" (as those are the newest Croatian-Nazi protectors) and read the above quote once again. Not a word other than those is to be changed!... For the third time in this century Croats are proxies of evil powers to roll over Europe. 

From our own files: 

The Grand Mufti's last "Sieg Heil!" as he leaves the Muslim SS division he helped be formed. 

Would the children of these SS-Muslims be able to finish under Bill Clinton what they could not during Adolf Hitler's time? 

Today, Bosnian Muslims revived their SS roots and their SS-Hanjar division... And BRAG ABOUT THEIR NAZI PAST.
