"The Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas, in the Kosovo village Banjska, was probably not an international treasure.

As far as we know, it was just a modest house of God in an area dotted with the same.

But no one may ever be sure. On Jan. 30, 11 kilograms of explosives were detonated at the altar, leaving much of the building in ruins.

The explosion forms part of a sad and continuing pattern. Since a wary peace took shape in Kosovo in June 1999, nearly 80 of its Orthodox churches and monasteries are known to have suffered heavy damage or destruction. The total may be higher, given that a lot of churches are located in remote areas where few, if any, Serbs still live.

These attacks did not occur during the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's bombing campaign last spring. They have happened since the return of Kosovo's Albanian majority. Extremists, usually assumed to be linked to the Kosovo Liberation Army, have carried out a systematic campaign of destruction under the eyes of international peacekeepers.

The muslim world goes nuts over a newsweek story that may not have happened and true evil happens while no one pays attention.

As sad as may seem, the story may be or may not be real, but taken in consideration, the record of our administration when it comes to lack of respect for others, I will lean to believing that indeed it happened.

And as for God's houses, been in ruins, well remember God doesn't need a house per say, we human are the ones that need houses to worship him.

People can worship God anywhere and anytime and he will be just as happy.

The only lost will be if any of them were ancient churches, that would be a very tragic lost.
