Memorie.al publishes an unknown article published in the newspaper “Dielli”, Boston, organ of the Patriotic and Patriotic Society “Vatra”, on December 14, 1926, by Fuat I. Babameto, originally from Gjirokastra, who, in very harsh tones, argues with an article published on November 10 of that year in the newspaper published in Geneva, Switzerland by Fan Noli, calling him a “lever of the Bolshevik Bishop” and its author who has signed with the nickname “W”, as: “dishonorable, degenerate as a man, raised with arixhofke milk, butcher greyhound”, etc., etc. The full article where its author, after telling about his higher studies in Theology in Arabic and Turkish, telling about his confirmation and the history books and texts he had read, defends the government of Prime Minister Ahmet Zogu and Faik Konica, accusing the short rule of Bishop Fan Noli, with their crimes that drowned the country in blood and lack of public order, where thieves and robbers, such as Shuk Qeni, Sinan Azizi, Bilbilenjtë, Shemo Brahimi, etc., gangs of thieves, came to Virua, taking hostage 12 people, including the Prefect and the Chief of Police of Gjirokastra…!
The armed uprising of the anti-government forces led by Fan Noli, Luigj Gurakuqi, Barjam Curri, etc., which had started in the first days of May 1924 after the burial of Avni Rustemi in Vlora, managed to with the force of weapons of carried out the coup, ‘finalizing’ it on June 10 of that year and toppling the government of Prime Minister Iljaz Vrioni, forcing former Interior Minister Ahmet Zogu and his supporters to flee to Yugoslavia. . This event, which throughout the history of Enver Hoxha’s communist regime, both by official historiography and by the propaganda of the time, would be known as the “June Democratic-bourgeois Revolution”, brought to power the government led by Prime Minister Fan Noli, or as he was known and considered different at the time by his political opponents, such as the “Red Bishop”, also because he accepted the support of the Soviet Union at the time. Fan Noli’s government lasted until the end of December of that year, when Ahmet Zogu, with his supporters and with the help of about 100 white Russian soldiers (or as they were otherwise known as “Belogardists”, who had left the Soviet Union after the triumph of the October Socialist Revolution in 1917 and who were as political emigrants in the Serbo-Croatian-Slovenian kingdom) was able to return to Albania, by force of arms, just as the insurgent forces had removed in June of that year. These two events, both the “June Revolution” and the return of Zog to power, for years would be “apples of discord” between the supporters of the two opposing parties (Zogists and fanolists), having fierce controversies in the press of the time. One of these is this article that Memorie.al is publishing today in the dossier section, which was taken from the newspaper “Dielli” dated December 14, 1926 that was published in Boston by the Patriotic Patriotic Association “Vatra”, bringing it in the language written of that time and without any change.
Writing the newspaper “Dielli” in Boston by Fuat Babameto
A HORSE IN ITALY BARKS, BUT IT DOES NOT BITE
On the lever of Bishop Bolshevik, coming out in Geneva, Switzerland, – No. 33 and dated November 10, 1926, I sang the bitterness and foam of a rabid dog. This degenerate as a man, raised with arixhofke milk that he is, does not have the courage to appear in the square of honor, yes – as an honest man he is – with his name, it is enough with a “W” as a nickname.
This butcher’s butcher reminds us not to expose his nonsense and masquerades. We have been to Istanbul with this handsome man, and elsewhere, we have had correspondence, and we have sung his writings and his press talent, and whatever is hidden with “Ë”, we realized that he is a leader of Iuqseq Kalladrem, Chicheqchi Sokak, and Taksim. It is no wonder that he is also a graduate of Brusa Hotel.
The nationalist polisher, blackened his face with shoe polish, and his belly filled with pasta without grease, and with turtles, drunk with wine from Italy, remembers that his mouth is the mouth of Vesuvius and his feather, which is the steamer. Equipped with these, this handsome man takes the “Hatrap” pen in his hand and has the shamelessness to attack President Zogu, Faik Konitza, and me.
Here I will not rebuke at all nationalist polishers for the attacks they make on the President, that the slaps and dicks of Shk. He was demoted from the Ensemble in Lustraji, but I will answer for Faik, for myself, and whenever the opportunity arises, I will answer for the current regime.
I got lipcak, I really did my studies in Arabic and Turkish yes, and you yourself know very well, that I have not stayed a single day in the Madrasa. As all Albanians know, I am a guard in Hafuz Pasha and not in the Madrasa.
I took the palaço, studied the history myself and sang the following stories: Ibn-i Haldum, Tabari, Revdhatul-ahbab, Musafal Tori Othmani and Islam, general history, stories Shani Zade, Ali Sejdi, Abdurrahman Sheref, Murad, Abul-Faruk, Ahmed Refik, Xhevdet, and Iniklab-i the tomb of France, I have studied better than you.
These, not you, but anyone who has known me, cannot deny. I forgot to name the Qainat of Ahmed Midhat and the Kamusl — alem of Sami Frashëri. You took laro, as a graduate of Jusqeq Kalldremi, Çiçeqi Sokak, and Taksim, have you studied so many volumes of history?
To advise Albanians not to fall victim to adventurers like you and your master, not me who has a skill yes, every Albanian has the right ‘and denial’ of a social right that gives me every nom e logical, is the pearl of larvae like you.
The beauty with these laro is that they give the right and a dhaskali of Greek schools in “Egypt, to become King in Albania, they give the right to kill and rip the Albanian people, a watermelon of Makri – Qojt – that Ibrik Tepelinjtë there, work watermelons – and Fuad Babametua who is Albanian and from Albania inside, Fuad Babametua who has participated in every movement – inside and outside Albania – Fuad who has sacrificed every personal interest not to speak, and to leave free taste to the detriment of that Albania, and of that people that Fuadi has been trying for twenty years and above, bravo the nationalist polisher.
The rabid wolf from Italy, named “Ë”, tells us that in the regime with the honor of the nationalists, there was no brother-murder and torture and robbery. With these phrases let me understand that exemplary serenity reigned. Well, polisher Effendi, you will tell them where to go.
I ask you, take the clown, your armchairs and your friends how are you? Did you not take them with a revolver that cost those thousands of souls and a hundred ounces of blood? Was it not the spiritual regime of the Bishop when they took prisoner the Prefect of Gjirokastra, the Director of Police, Hysni Babameton, Qazim Puton and others from the king of the mountains, Sulo Bega from Progonati?
Wasn’t your regime a page with nationalist honor that took the clothes of the poor Avni Vehbi, two hats away from the government offices, and was strangled with a duffel belt in the vineyards of Kakoz by Mero Lamçe?
Without telling me, Noli’s gogol, in which government did the thieves, such as Shuk Qeni, Sinan Azizi, Bilbilenjtë, Shemo Brahimi and other gangs, come to Virua and take twelve captives, and among them, to be Prefect and Kryepolic, and finally kidnap a slave inside Gjirokastra and two government larks? /Memorie.al
