It's pretty recent, but already I've been hearing a lot of dissent about it. Russians and Serbians obviously don't like the idea… but a lot of English-speaking people are against it as well.
These comments are pretty hostile sometimes…
ipeev: USA created a Muslim state in Europe. What are you congratulating about?!
iigloo: I don't get it, they're still Europeans, no matter their religion or where they originally came from…
ipeev: They are Albanians. They hardly pass the human intelligence exam.
Now, I may be slightly biased because I am Albanian (though not from Kosovo) but I honestly gave a little cheer when I heard the news. Kosovo has a big mountain to climb if they want to now build a successful and accepted state, but I want to cheer them on, not bring them down!
And from having visited Albania and knowing a few people from Kosovo, the fact that these people are Muslim is hardly worth batting an eyelash towards. They are quite liberal… Albania itself, despite supposedly being majority Muslim, practices very very little religion (due to being Communist in the old days.)
I want to know what other people's views are… are you cheering Kosovo on? Or do you think this is opening a can of worms? Are you against it for any other reasons?
