Five years ago today the largest-scale attack against Kosovo's Serbs took place since the international administration was established in the province in 1999.

Ethnic Albanians attacked the Serb enclaves, massively destroying property, leaving 19 people dead and 950 wounded after a two-day rampage.

On March 17-18 2004, some 4,000 Serbs were driven out of their home, while 900 of their houses and 35 Serbian Orthodox churches and monasteries were destroyed – some of them precious culture monuments built in the 14th and 16th centuries.

"Kosovo Albanians might attempt to continue systematic destruction of the Christian Orthodox heritage in Kosovo, but they must be aware that in the flames and ashes of our churches, holy icons, frescoes and relics, their chances of joining the cultured and civilized democratic world will burn out, too." - Fr. Sava to Admiral Gregory Johnson, the commander of the Southern wing of NATO forces.

Without acknowledging the aggression from one's own side as well there will never be any meaningful reconciliation, just an endless shifting of blame,

Just ask israelis and palestinians how well that approach works.
