Any initiative targeting fanatism, xenophobia and anti-Semitism should be targeted, Bulgaria's President Rosen Plevneliev said on Monday.

Attending a ceremony of lightting candles on the Hanukkah Menorah at the Sofia Synagogue, Plevneliev argued that even the worst of evils could be stopped when people of different religious background unite and say "no" to hatred.

"A brutal murder has nothing to do with God, because God teaches us that the life of every Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, or Jew is important," the Bulgarian Presidency's press office quotes him as saying.
