"The Albanians in their dresses (the most magnificent in the world, consisting of a long white kilt, gold worked cloak, crimson velvet gold laced jacket and waistcoat, silver mounted pistols and daggers)" Lord Byron, English poet who visited the Vilayet of Janina in 1809

The elegant and magnificent fustanella (white skirt, made of wool, linen or cotton) traditionally worn by southern Albanian men, the tosk (suliotes & arvanites included) and Greek men as well. Uncertain precise origin (Albanian, Greek, Roman...)

Est-ce de la diabolisation excessive de ma part de dire que cette rhétorique là est semblable à celle que le gouvernement de Milosević utilisait à l'époque pour envoyer l'armée ? À savoir "les Croates et les Bosniaques maintenant indépendants vont chasser les Serbes locaux" ?

Turp i madh... pastaj shqiptarët e shesin veten si atëdhedashës të mëdhenj, në fakt vet kjo listë e emrave mjafton për të treguar ku gjindet dashuria e kombit dhe mbrojtja e identitetit shqiptar...

Not sure in what dimensions history is being rewritten, but Scanderbeg ruined all ottoman plans for taking over Italy. This is basic stuff, fully proven by all correspondence Scanderbeg had with Italian princes and Pope. The Pope organized a crusade, but found no money for it.

The 2 countries will begin the implementation of a unified customs on January 1, 2019. That after Kosovo has implemented a 100% tax on Serbian products. National symbols were put forward and Edi Rama expressed his desolation concerning the isolation of Kosovo in the European area

Today in Pejë, Kosovo, two days before the Albanian National Day, the governments of Albania and Kosovo met. Agreements concerning the removing existing barriers, removal of roaming fees & harmonisation of customs clearance procedures have been signed between Kosovo and Albania

I never said the opposite. Besides, it would not only be insane but also impossible. But this does not contradict what I said, Albanians use too much foreign words (more than what people usually think), often unnecessarily, because it's easier...

Very important thread, we Albanians we have a background work to do because we do not know our language, we prefer to use foreign words rather than Albanian words. We have to carry out a work to imbue certain words rather than others

During the conflict in Kosovo, thousands of women suffered sexual violence. The UK is helping to support survivors and end stigma

The decision was very well received by the people and by the opposition. The first to protest are of course, the Serbs north of Mitrovica. This decision was taken because Serbia "leads an aggressive policy of anti-Kosovar campaigns" in the world, said the kosovar government

Just after being denied Interpol for the third time, Kosovo has introduced a 100% tax on products from Serbia & Bosnia. In only one day 20 Serbian goods trucks were refused entry to Kosovo. Serbian products will totally disappear from the Kosovar market

Serbian officials never cease to surprise me. Just last week at the security council, they complained that is not doing enough to bring to justice those responsible for ’s murder. Today, when Police arrested suspects, they demand they are freed!

We don't care when Greek police kills Albanians drug traffickers on the border. Greeks shouldn't care when Albanian police kills Greek terrorists in Albania, who wanted to kill Albanian and Greek politicians honoring ww2 fallen Greek soldiers in a ceremony.

It was a stinging defeat for the Ottoman side. Some other battles on which you can be interested: Battle of Torvioll, Battle of Otonetë, 1st, 2nd and 3rd Siege of Krujë, Battle of Mokra
