By John Feffer

Huffington Post

Bulgarian politician Ahmed Dogan was in the news this weekend after surviving a dramatic assault at a party conference in Sofia. Dogan is the controversial leader of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF), an organization established in 1990 that has largely championed the rights of ethnic Turks and Muslims living in Bulgaria. Dogan was going to announce during this speech that he was stepping down as the head of the party.

should there be a party to protect the rights of ethnic germans in poland, or ethnic iraqis in kuwait?

maybe the rights of ethnic islamic insurgents in north africa need protecting too?

"When I talked to people in 1990, there were some people who really thought that ethnic Turks would be a fifth column for Turkey to re-colonize Bulgaria. But I don't have the sense that those suspicions still exist.
They do exist, but at a much lower level"-----are You OK, Mr.Author?

.....not ordinary ethnic Turks, but just anti-constitutional DPS is the real
Turkish Fifth Column in BG. And even more: it is Radical Islam' Fifth Column with its branches in the majority of Bg regions........Beware violet.
