Crying with the blood of the slaughtered

Crying for the blood of those slaughtered in genocidal massacre!

Three hundred thousand murdered for ethnic cleansing

In Bosnia!

Death in the very spirit of contemporary humanity!

In contempt for the death of spirit in contemporary humanity

We cry

That not only was genocide permitted but afterwards it is denied!

That is the state of blood in contemporary humanity!
