The Bulgarian President Goes on Israel Visit

The Bulgarian President Rumen Radev left for the Middle East to meet with Palestinian and Israeli officials. The reason for his trip is the 75th anniversary of the rescuing of the Bulgarian Jews and the 70th anniversary of the Israeli state. After the Bulgarian Tsar Boris decided not to deport the Bulgarian jews to the Nazi death camps, many of them decided to move to Israel. Radev's visit will indicate once again that Bulgaria has never tolerated and will never tolerate antisemitism.

During his visit in Palestine on Wednesday, Radev will leave flowers at the grave of Yasser Arafat and meet with his Palestinian colleague Mahmoud Abbas. This is an interesting time for Radev to meet with Abbas who just yesterday called the US ambassador in Israel a "son of a bitch". The political climate is definitely one to keep in mind.
