To The New York Times by Jerry Blaskovich

The New York Times
Attention: Jack Rosenthal, Editorial-Page Editor
13 November 1992

Dear Mr. Rosenthal:
Your hypercritical editorial, "The U.N.'s Bad Example on Bosnia (November 5, 1992)", regarding Croatia's refusal to admit Bosnian refugees is in keeping with England, France, and United States' hypocrisy to excuse their own inactions.

According to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, Croatia, whose territory is one-third occupied by Serb forces, has already given asylum to 640,000 Bosnians that fled from horrific Serbia human-rights violations. Coupled with the 271,798 displaced persons from Serb occupied Croatia and fighting an ongoing war, Croatia does not have the economic means to care even for its own needs.

As of September 1992, Germany has taken 220,000 refugees; Switzerland 70,520; Austria 57,700; Hungary 50,000; and Sweden 47,000. The numbers are markedly different from countries most critical of Croatia's new stance that your editorial labeled "morally reprehensible". France has taken 1,108 refugees; England 2,000 and the United States magnanimously "offered" to take 1,000.

Kenneth Clarke, the United Kingdom's Home Secretary slammed the door on Bosnian refugees on November 6, 1992, when he imposed strict visa restrictions. Previously Charles Wardle from the same office assured the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees that England would not raise visa barriers. So much for double speak.

Your stating, "U.N. peace-keepers complicate their own mission" does not address UN complicity with Serbia. Jean-Claude Cocoloto, Head Officer for U.N. Refugees on July 28, 1992 declared the U.N. is, "...Not only creating refugees, but of becoming a partner in Serbia's 'Ethnic cleansing'." Recently (November 2, 1992) UNICEF purchased blankets in Belgrade, which is contrary to, and flaunting U.N. imposed sanctions, shipped them intentionally to Bosnia. After the Bosnian government learned about the origin of the blankets they refused to accept them. The U.N. then sent the blankets to the Serbs in Serb-held Bosnia. This is another example of the UN helping the aggressors and disingenuously punishing the victims.
