Summary/Abstract: Bosnjastvo or "Bosniak-hood" is the natural and historic right to identity of a people, the Bosniaks, who have lived for millennia in this land. This does not seek to exclude anyone else who has lived or now lives here from his own historical heritage on condition that he does not himself call into question that historical content, or expresses the wish to continue to participate in it. The only people who are troubled by Bosniak-hood are the destroyers of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the protagonists of greater-state projects at her expense. Their wish is to exterminate the biological and spiritualcultural substance that unreservedly identifies itself with Bosnia and Herzegovina.
