French humanitarian Arnaud Gouillon recently commented on the outburst that followed the news of Nobel Prize in Literature being awarded to Peter Handke, B92 reports.
“What an outburst of hatred and insults in the Western press over Nobel for Handke. Being a friend of Serbia and genuinely loving the weak and oppressed living in the enclaves in Kosovo and Metohija is obviously inexcusable. Even after 20 years,” Gouillon posted on Twitter.
The humanitarian then added: “Now at least I know how I will be treated, whatever I do in the future.”
The founder of Solidarité Kosovo, a French non-governmental humanitarian organization devoted to helping Serbian people in Kosovo and Metohija, Arnaud Gouillon, is a holder of the Medal of King Stefan Dečanski given by the Eparchy of Raska and Prizren in 2012. Gouillon was awarded with this recognition in gratitude for all his humanitarian efforts over the years carried out with the aim of supporting the survival of Serbian people in Kosovo and Metohija.
Namely, the news that Austrian writer Peter Handke is this year’s Nobel Prize winner in literature, has sparked numerous reactions on social media and in the media worldwide. The news particularly angered Albanians, who say he is “known for his firm stance opposing NATO bombing, which brought “freedom to Kosovo.” Similar reactions are coming from the USA.
Social networks such as Facebook and Twitter were flooded with several hundreds of comments on this issue, in which cultural figures from around the world congratulate Handke on this recognition. However, the “assaults” on Hadke came mostly from the keyboards of Pristina’s and Albanian politicians, B92 concluded.
