The Future of Albania

In this episode, we'll be discussing how the government in Albania is being corrupted in our interview with Olsi Jazexhi.

Albania is a small country we rarely hear about in the news. One of the reasons for this is that the US decided to turn this southern Balkan state on the Adriatic coast into base of operations against Russia and Muslim countries such as Iran and Turkey in the early 2000s.

Beyond its geographic location, it is the fact that Albania is the only Muslim majority nation in Europe with approximately 70% of the population adhering to Islam that made it a target for US domination.

Albania had been ruled by the communist dictator Enver Hoxha for decades who proclaimed Albania to be the first officially atheist state in the world and who actively persecuted all religious activity.
