The Skins' focus is on Serbian nationalism, but they also embrace the racism and anti-Semitism of their comrades around the world. A Yugoslavia-based branch of a United States gang called United White Skinheads is run by Branko Kunovki of Belgrade. Kunovski, in a letter he wrote, took credit for vandalizing a Belgrade synagogue with Nazi stickers from Gary Lauck's Nebraska-based NSDAP-AO and boasted that he booby-trapped them with hidden razors. Kunovski also runs _Predskaanje_ (Prediction), a skinzine, and distributes Serbian Skinhead music internationally. The British skinzine _Last Chance_ reports a "massive" "oi" music scene in Serbia that includes several nationalist Skinhead bands. Ritam Nereda (Rhythm of Disorder) is the most well-known; they sing some songs in English and have received favorable reviews in American and British skinzines. In a 1993 issue of _Dixie Rose_, a now-defunct skinzine from Texas, Boban, the band's singer, described his outlook on recent Yugoslav history: We think about ourselves as victims of the so called "New World Movement." If the United (Z.O.G.)* Nations hadn't fucked us up everything would be over. We would have our territory back, have saved our people, stopped the Muslims from conquering Europe again, and the war would've ended a long time ago. Other popular bands are Directori (Directors) and Generacija Bez Buducnosti (Generation Without a Future). The Detroit-based zine _Resistance_ reports that videos of these bands as well as Ritam Nereda have been shown on television. (Anti-Defamation League, 84-85) * Z.O.G., or Zionist Occupied Government, is a term used mainly by American extremists to indicate Jewish domination of the government.
