Bulgaria's Parliamentary Committee for Foreign Policy is joining the international community represented by the UN and the EU in the request for an independent investigation of the incident in the Gaza strip.

The Committee's Chair, Zhivko Todorov, said Friday that humanitarian aid must reach the Palestinian population without any radical activities.

“These people are very poor and poverty is breading ground for extremism; they must receive any humanitarian aid,” Todorov stressed.

The Committee met to discuss Bulgaria's reaction towards the Middle East conflict.

9 people, 8 of whom are reported to be Turkish citizens, and one American citizen from Turkish background, were killed Monday after Israeli commandos stormed a convoy of ships carrying aid to the Gaza Strip.

Israel declared that the organizers of the flotilla, which tried to reach the Gaza Strip despite the Israel blockade, are terrorists connected to Hamas and Al-Queda. Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, canceled his visit to Washington to return to Israel.

The attack sent shock waves of outrage in Palestine, Greece, and Turkey, while the EU and the UN demand full investigation of "what has happened."

Todorov further declared any loss of live is unacceptable and pointed out all Parliamentary groups have joined around the above ideas.

Meanwhile, the conservative “Order, Law, and Justice” (RZS) party has submitted a project for a Parliamentary declaration stating Bulgaria must firmly support Israel in the light of the traditionally good relations between the two countries, saying the position of the executive power and of Bulgarian EU Commissioner, Kristalina Geogieva, is in contradiction with the mood and the opinion of the Bulgarian society.

NellidiotAmerica,

"This gay is just another liberal douche bag and maybe he is even a Muslim. You can never tell on this forum, too many Muslim vermin on here."

Liberals; yes, there are several (thankfully) but too many Muslims? As far as I know, only me and Turkishboy. Anyone else?

You can enjoy your uniqueness, though. Only vermin in the forum.

"Jaguars are still built in Coventry England... i.e. British made."

Always something to learn on this forum. I thought Jagzar had gone broke and was out of things. Didn't know BWM bailed them out.

I dimly remember someone bailing Rover out, but I don't know who.

Nellie:

Apparently you only look at expensive cars. From my viewpoint, NOTHING makes a Mercedes look cheap. 8-))

"If this guy thinks OUR bombing is killing a lot of "innocent civilians", I wonder what his opinion of theirs is. Suicide bombers all over the place, striking busy markets, for example."

Good point! Suicide bombings kill more of their civilians than any of our military activity ever did.

I like the Mercedes GLK except for the honeycomb black mesh on the front grill. I just don't like that black mesh at all, it makes the car look cheap.

Another thing--it is supposed to cost $36,000 for the 4-matic model, but just try to find it for that price at your local dealer. They are all $42,000-$44,000 or more. Lying, cheating, swindlers!

I know that Jaguars are English cars, but what I meant was that I can tell a Jaguar from a Porche or a Merc or a BMW or a Volvo. I can't tell a Chrylsler from a Ford or anything American made. I can't tell a Toyota from a Nissan or a Honda. American cars are the most boring cars in the world. I have never owned an American car in 45 years living in the US.

Political Hypocrisy

I can only tell what car it is if it is a German car, like Merc, Audi, BMW, or a Jaguar. All Jap cars and all American cars look the same to me. lol

Ummm Nellie,

Jaguars are still built in Coventry England... i.e. British made.

The company is owned by BMW.

I could be wrong (sorry if I am) but I think mrgay is uchak.

they are the only two people that have used the term antislavism and antislavite.

If it is true Uchak is not a euro liberal.

This gay is just another liberal douche bag and maybe he is even a Muslim. You can never tell on this forum, too many Muslim vermin on here. Don't expect any reason or logic from a dim-witted Muslim apologist. They are all rabid dogs, just like their Turkish boss Erdogan.

Nellie:

Point to consider:

If this guy thinks OUR bombing is killing a lot of "innocent civilians", I wonder what his opinion of theirs is. Suicide bombers all over the place, striking busy markets, for example.

At least the suicide bombings have the advantage of taking the bomber with them.

Observe how they never show in the news how many jihadists were killed, only how many "civilians" were killed. And idiots like mrgay the pederas believe the Eurotrash media. No wonder Europe is in the condition it's in with the euro on a slippery slope. Europeans are for the most part morons.

@gay boy a.k.a. pederas

"most of the civilian casualties from US/UK army are due to poor aearial bombing and use of drones that blow up innocent along with guilty...is absolutely correct to criticise these tactics."

That's exactly the dim-witted liberal thinking that Islamist jihadists are counting on to get westerners to feel sorry for them. As long as there are idiots like you who give a pass to the guilty, the guilty will continue to use their own mothers as human shields. The terrorists are getting sympathy from morons like you because they are using civilians as human shields. That's so wrong and immoral!

I seem to remember a proposition applied which I don't see much any more:

Reduce the price + sell more units = profit anyway.

I think it was called competition.

Supply and demand? The demand is always the best price for the quality.
