On Friday, actor Enis Beslagic recorded a video in front of the headquarters of the Office of the High Representative (OHR) in Sarajevo, in which he criticized the High Representative for his stormy speech in Gorazde, as well as the general attitude of the international community.
Beslagic was therefore inspired by Christian Schmidt’s angry speech in Gorazde, so he addressed him, stressing that it is ridiculous that a foreign official with a salary of close to 25.000 euros loses his temper like that.
However, Beslagic sent a broader message to the international community, which caused numerous reactions.
“You know why? Because that’s how you let us live and work with all of this that is happening to us. During the war, you watched us kill each other, for four years, you could have stopped that war. After the war, you gave us a straitjacket called the Dayton peace agreement. Then for 25 years you just raised salaries, you did nothing,” noted Beslagic.
Beslagic received a lot of support on his social networks, however, many criticized him, especially for one sentence.
“During the war, you watched us kill each other,” is one sentence that Beslagic said, which many interpreted as relativizing what happened in the war.
Under the video posted by Beslagic, he received almost four thousand comments, and the only objection refers to the sentence about the character of war.
“Correction of the wrong allegation, we did not kill each other, some were aggressors and some defended their lives and country,“ it was mentioned in some of the comments.
Beslagic joined the discussion and confirmed his thesis that members of the same nation, Bosnians and Herzegovinians, shot at each other and killed each other.
Another actor, Izudin Bajrovic, made an interesting comment on Beslagic‘s statement, and ultimately wondered what Beslagicwanted to say in the first place, Klix.ba writes.
