"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Bulgarian Muslim leader says the American led coalition is not at war with Islam.

The war against Iraq is not religious and Bulgarian Muslims do not support the regime of Saddam Hussein, their leader said Monday.

"What Bulgarian Muslims are concerned about is the fate of the ordinary Iraqis, who are victims of Saddam Hussein's regime," Chief Mufti Selim Mehmed told state radio.

Mehmed said he ordered his clerics to carefully watch unknown visitors of the mosques as a precaution against feared terrorist attacks.

Bulgaria, which takes part in the U.S.-led coalition fighting Iraq, has a 10% Muslim minority of 800,000 _ mainly ethnic Turks.
