The Bosnian Muslim Nazi 13th SS "Handzar" or "Handschar" division was a mountain infantry formation, known by the Germans as "Gebirgsjäger". It was used to conduct operations against Yugoslav Partisans, Jews and Serbs in the Balkan Mountains.
The Kama Division was the second Bosnian Muslim Nazi SS Division formed by Heinrich Himmler. The first Bosnian Muslim Nazi SS Division was the Handzar Division formed in 1943. The Kama and Handzar Divisions were formed by Himmler and Bosnian Muslim political leaders to advance the goals of Bosnian Muslim nationalism by achieving "autonomy" for a Bosnian Muslim state. Kama and Handzar were perceived as the armed forces of a newly-emerging Bosnian Muslim autonomous statelet. Kama and Handzar are essential to any understanding of the development of Bosnian Muslim nationalism.
Adolf Hitler and Heinrich Himmler developed and originated this strategy or policy of using Islam to advance their geopolitical objectives. The precursors to this policy can be found in the Austro-Hungarian Empire's exploitation and manipulation of Bosnian Muslim, Albanian Muslim, and Sandzak Muslim troops to advance its agendas in the Balkans. Hitler and Himmler developed this concept most fully and completely in the 20th century. The historical antecedents and origins of Zbiniew Brzezinski's policies in arming and training the Afghan mujahedeen and Ossama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda can be traced to Adolf Hitler and Heinrich Himmler. Bill Clinton was not the first to exploit the Islamic jihad to serve a national interest by allowing Al-Qaeda to infiltrate Bosnia from 1992 to 1995 and then Kosovo in 1998. The precursors and antecedents of this policy go back to Himmler and Hitler.
