Funny how the Zionists are scurrying around the world, desperately trying to garner support for their sick actions.

Good on Bulgaria :)


SOFIA Israel suffered an unexpected rebuff from close ally Bulgaria Thursday when it failed to get its immediate backing against a planned Palestinian bid for statehood in September.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been travelling around European capitals to drum up support against the Palestinian bid at the United Nations, and has already received assurances from EU countries such as Germany, the Netherlands and Bulgaria's neighbour Romania.

But Bulgarian Prime Minister Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, whose country has had close ties with Israel ever since Bulgaria saved its Jewish population from the Nazi camps in World War II, and who was widely expected to back Israel, remained noncommittal after a meeting between the two leaders on Thursday.

Following the collapse of direct peace talks with Israel last year, the Palestinians are looking to secure UN recognition for a Palestinian state along the frontiers that existed before the 1967 Six Day War, at a General Assembly meeting in New York in September.

Israel adamantly opposes such a move however, with Netanyahu embarking this week on a tour to convince European countries to vote against recognising a Palestinian state.
