 St Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary - The Serbian Church and Milosevic
Known and loved for his humility, poverty and identification with all of the people of his diocese, Serbian and Albanian, Christian and non-Christian, Pavle was among the least likely candidates for the patriarchal office among the Serbian bishops.
Many of the Serbian Church's present bishops and priests were among her most dissident clergy and her most persecuted confessors in the days of communism.
That American observers can be so ignorant about the Serbian Orthodox Church, and the Serbian people generally, in regard to Milosevic and his government, is comparable only to our American government's ignorance of the realities of Balkan history (medieval, modern, marxist and contemporary), and the mentalities of the Balkan peoples.

 Serbian Cyrillic Letters BE, GHE, DE, PE, TE
Serbians use also Latin letters for their language, so appearance of Latin n and m for Cyrillic letters equivalent for Latin p and t make too big problem for them.
Alternatively, a Serbian font developer could set the Serbian forms as defaults and specify exceptions for all the other Cyrillic script languages, although this would be less efficient.

 The Serbian Unity Congress and the Serbian Lobby
3 The Serbian groups that are attached to the SUC are, however, united in their perception of Serbs as victims and in their denial that genocide has been committed against the people of Bosnia.
Most important of all the Serbian lobbying practices is the way in which the SUC and Serbnet have gained access to the media and the American public.
The major achievement of the Serbian lobby must be its infiltration of the media and the U.S. public through its disinformation campaign, bullying tactics, letter-writing etc. Yet, it must be remembered that the Serbian lobby has only managed to gain ground here because the current cultural/intellectual climate has made this possible.
