on: Islam and the Imagery of Fear in Bulgaria: The Barbarians of Batak, by Sonja Zekri

With all due respect to Sonja Zekri, I should beg to differ. To state an opinion in this attempt of an article, and to be an open supporter of two people who obviously in their quest for glory have chosen to speculate with the tragedy of a whole nation, which endured the Turkish tyranny for 500 years, might be considered by some people a credible spring of unmatched providence, but in fact it is a good calculated but poorly executed and principally biased few lines.

It is sad, that a respected media should be the promoter of such "ideas". I am sure, however, that in due time a counterpoint will find its way to the pages of this paper and the readers of the same will be able to really see for themselves and make in turn their own objective conclusions! "Survival is a privilege which entails obligations. I am forever asking myself what I can do for those who have not survived." – Simon Wiesenthal
