‘Greater Serbia’ and ‘Greater Croatia’
The Moslem question in Bosnia-Hercegovina
in Balkan holocausts?

In the Bosnian crisis, Serbs and Croats often worked together, and, as early as 1991, Slobodan Milošević and Franjo Tudjman had carved up Bosnia on paper. In Bosnia, the Moslems were seen as the primary threat to the creating of larger national states. Serbian and Croatian machinations, including the production of propaganda, thus followed very similar strategies. Incorporating chunks of Bosnia-Hercegovina into Croatia and Serbia became central to the legitimacy of both governments, who had pledged to unite Diaspora nationals throughout the region. This chapter explores the concepts of ‘Greater Serbia’ and ‘Greater Croatia’ as well as the Moslem question in Bosnia-Hercegovina. It first considers the case of the Bosnian Moslems and their Croatian heritage, nationalism and Islam, Serbs and the ‘Moslem traitors’ in Bosnia-Hercegovina, Serbian perspectives on the Islamic state, the Moslems as genocidal killers, and Croatian views of the Bosnian Moslems.
