One more reason to vote Ahmed Dugan out and Volen Siderov in the Bulgarian ruling coalition. The constitution should be ammended to say that political parties based on race or religion or ethnicity are illegal. Everyone is Bulgarian, period. If you don't like it, go away. It is BS to have Turkish representation in Bulgarian government. Does Bulgaria have representation in the Turkish government? I rest my case. Bulgarians are the stupidest people on earth. They let anyone fcuk them. Fools. They know nothing.
Well First Bulgarians have to liberate themselves from the stupidity of Bulgarian "Politicians" who brought that new islamization wave upon Bulgaria, starting from Zhelyu Zhelev, over Andrey Lukanov, Ivan Kostov, Atanas Semerdjiev and his military Gang of traitors, Petar Stoynaov, Stefan Sofiyanski, and many, many other money lovers who have sold out Bulgarias freedom. to all kind of clowns without education, devotion and elementary first seven years of Bulgarian patriotism. Sad but true, clowns like the proposed candidate for Nato Secretary General, backed by all the yes sayers from various sites of bulgarias so called political theater, mainly all coming from the military intelligence of Mr. Zhivkov, will continue the sell out of the country. Its time to stop that tragic comedy, there is no time left... 2o years are enough. We doi not want another century of Tyrany for Bulgaria...
This is very sick looking picture to see a bulgarian vilagge to be controled by an"aga".Not only they should fire him but revoke his citizenship and send him to Turkey or Saudi or where ever the f**k he got the money to fund this.I'm sick to my stomach to hear over and over again how slowly but surely we're beeng wiped out by commy bstrds and the Tri-coalition .They should be voted out and never again given the power to do anything close to that humiliation.I am soooo glad I escaped from that place.Just sad,sad,sad day to be a Bulgarian.
WAKE THE HELL UP AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT !!!
DON'T SLEEP OR ANOTHER 500 YRS OF YOKE ARE COMING AND I SEE IT IT'S THERE ALLREADY WITH THE CHALGY AND BUYING VOTES AND ON AND ON !!!!
If there are really cases like this, it happens to be a typical example of FAILED local municipal and provincial governments and FAILED law enforcement system.
NOBODY should be able to illegally enforce anything on the people of a democratic society! So find the culprits and throw them in jail!
DonвЂ™t just write their names and stories!
I was hopeful that with EU membership Bulgaria would erase its primitive faschist ideas and stop oppression of Muslims. Unfortunately, it is a shame to see the Bulgarian politicians advocating racism. Bulgarian people are generally reasonable but they should get rid of these racists. Let Muslim or Christians live together in harmony. It is really pity to see a European country acting like an dictatorship.
Bulgarians are reasonable people and far too patient. We, orthodox, are kind people and full of understanding. We do not impose our believes on other individuals. Trust me, I am sick of the constant attempts of some other forms of religion to remind me of themselves and to try to grab my attention. I am simply not interested in them and I want to be left alone. I have never seen a single orthodox to scream and shout in order to attract the attention of other believers. I am disgusted by LDS bugging my elderly parents by вЂ?visitingвЂ™ them year after year ( over 10 years so far) even though they have explicitly been asked politely NOT to do that because they are not wanted in our home! I am sick of listening to the hysteric shouts of the minorities in my country and how suppressed they are! Give me a break! You are the ones who used to get to Universities without entrance exams just because you represent minority and we all have witnessed how most of you вЂ?earnedвЂ™ their qualifications! I DO NOT support extreme politicians but it is time for you mates to relax a bit and try to drop most of your demands. And if you do not like it in Europe, why donвЂ™t you go to countries with believe systems similar to yours? Just an idea!!!
I read Ribnovo was always a 100% muslim village since well before 1878. And this is how the women in Ribnovo usually dress since well before the appearance of the fundamentalist people cited in the article
The photo in the article doesnt prove anything about the existence of fundamental islam, it is just reflecting the fact that the people there are practicing muslims since ever. Now, if many locals feel that they are dragged into a direction where they dont want to go we can help them but if this is pure propaganda we should be careful before jumping against the BG muslims.
(Lets not forget that there are 7000 non-muslim bulgarians in Dubai and UAE alone, together with van4eto)
Let's add to them another 300 000 Brits, 100 000 Aussies, plenty of South Africans, numerous Americans ( North and South), Germans, French, Italians...Multicultural society! I missed your point or most probably such has not been made. Cheers!
"I am soooo glad I escaped from that place.Just sad,sad,sad day to be a Bulgarian.

I had to laugh. This is a perfect example of what both CreepyS and Kolega have mentioned.
On the one hand this individual has left and is happy about it. And then in the very next sentence blaming/admonishing all the "other" Bulgarians to do something about it.
Maybe they can't because they have either escaped as well, or are trying to figure out ways they can :)
You know what is really sad here? That the BG economic ex(pat)-patriots are as loud as the Bulgarians still in BG promoting primitive national concepts that sound much wronger now than the national concepts we had in 1870 and in 1890.
After 1878 BG was de facto multicultural, even more than it is now, and still the population was more tolerant towards each other than it is now, in the 21rst century when we are nominally (but not really) a member of the EU. This is insulting to our intelligence as a nation.
The fundamental difference in the BG intollerance compared to that in Western Europe is that the islam there came with the immigrants since relatively recently while here we had multicultural society before this state was born and after some hundreds of years many people suddenly became more catholic than the pope when it comes to define who is Bulgarian and who is not and who has the right to stay in this country and who not. This from people who themselves emigrate like crazy because we are unable to put our tiny country together by ourselves.

I am no economic ex-pat, I am a political refugee from communism. And the problem I have with the Turkish minority in Bulgaria is where TF do they get off trying to infiltrate the Bulgarian government by creating a political party based on Islam and ethnic "freedoms"? And one of the reasons Bulgaria is in hot water in the EU is because the Turkish party has got a stranglehold on Bulgarian agriculture subsidies that come from the EU, pass through Bulgaria and go directly to Turkey, my friend. Plugchieva is still looking for the 100 million EU funds that got "misplaced" in Bulgaria? She need look no further than in Ahmed Dugan's wallet. 500 years is enough from those imbeciles, don't you think?
"I am a political refugee from communism"
Wake up call......you WERE (maybe) a political refugee from communism, but certainly you aren't one since the year 1989. Twenty years and you're still hiding? Political refugee from communism.....my a$$....not a valid point anymore. You have converted to a financial refugee in those 20 years and I bet you've had enough opportunities to return in those years, but you did not take them.
Time to come back to BG and to actually change things, instead of shouting from a safe distance "how bad this" and "how bad that". Very often the same though.....many Bulgarians living abroad (those with no intention to return to BG for good) have the biggest mouths. Oh, wait.....in the (unlikely) event that BG becomes the most wealthy country in the world, all BG expats will be elbowing for taxi's at Sofia airport. Hypocrites!
"I am disgusted by LDS bugging my elderly parents by вЂ?visitingвЂ™ them year after year ( over 10 years so far) even though they have explicitly been asked politely NOT to do that because they are not wanted in our home!"
Seriously? Where is your parent's traditional Bulgarian hospitality? Where I come from in Bulgaria, if a stranger calls on you, you invite him in, offer him a glass of rakija and a shopska salata and chat with him. Mormons won't take rakija, but yogurt or milk is appropriate refreshment.
I've never had Mormon missionaries visit me. Jehovah's witnesses, on the other hand, visit me on a regular basis and leave pamphlets at my door if I am not at home. They are usually very polite and respectful.
Utah has some of the best skiing on earth, I love Utah and all the hot Mormon kids on snow boards. Sport is one of the few pleasures they are allowed to have, so they all go for it and look amazing as a result.
"I bet you've had enough opportunities to return in those years, but you did not take them."
My ex did - and I divorced him and remained in the US to raise my kid. He went to dabble in agriculture and co collect EU agricultural subsidies. For all I know, some of the missing SAPARD funds might have found their way in his wallet. He is probably fully mutrified by now, driving his MB at breakneck speeds and banging Bulgarian hookers. I don't know, we don't speak.

I am DOING something to change things, I am VOTING for Volen Siderov.
"Oh, wait.....in the (unlikely) event that BG becomes the most wealthy country in the world"
It is not going to happen.
"All BG expats will be elbowing for taxi's at Sofia airport. Hypocrites!"
HAHAHAHA! It is DEFINITELY not going to happen. Who is gonna babysit my future grandchildren?
"Oh, wait.....in the (unlikely) event that BG becomes the most wealthy country in the world"
Yeah, that still won't change the attitudes of the arseholes and the chalga bling-bling walking pen!s/vag!na culture overnight. Till that changes, many of us are staying out.
