A ceremony was held, Thursday in the Bulgarian town of Yakoruda, to mark the dedication of a kindergarden, donated by Israel, in memory of bus driver Mustafa Kyosov, a native of the town, who was murdered in last July's bombing of a bus at the airport in the Black Sea resort of Burgas, in which five Israelis were also murdered. Mendi Safadi, who heads the office of Minister Ayoub Kara, said the donation of the kindergarden was intended, "to foster a generation raised with tolerance and the acceptance of others, for the best investment is in our children, who are the next generation, whom it is important to educate on the values of peace and tolerance, and slam the door to hate and radicalism that terrorist organizations are trying to to foster."
A representative of Kyosov's family said, "Israel has proved that it has no competition in the humanitarian field and we saw this in the visit of Mr. Safadi two weeks after the attack, even before the Bulgarian representative. We believe in Israel's capabilities and rely on its ability to capture the cruel terrorist and bring him to justice, only we ask you to do so soon. Our heart is broken and you can bring us comfort."
