Kosovo opposition Leader to visit Israel

Kosovo's public television (RTK) reports today that the head of biggest opposition party in Kosovo, Hashin Thaqi, will travel to Israel for a three day visit. This is the first time a high ranking Kosovo official has visited Israel. What is even more interesting is that, according to RTK, Thaqi was invited by the government of Israel.

Thaçi kërkon mbështetjen e Izraelit për pavarësinë e Kosovës

He will attend a meeting with deputy PM Shimon Peres, the speaker of the Israeli parliament (The Knesset) Reuven Rivlin and the opposition leader Benjamin Netanjayu. RTK also adds that Mr. Thaqi will meet the leaders of the Economic Chamber of Israel to encourage them to invest in Kosovo.
Not sure at this point what is the purpose of this invitation, but it appears unusual.

02/08-Update: Shimon Peres was quoted yesterday by Kosovapress as saying that Israel will indeed support the Independence of Kosovo. He also indicated that Israel will invest significantly in Kosovo by reiterating to Mr. Thaqi that Israel has some major investment plans for Kosovo. Mr. Peres reasoned the Israeli support for Kosovo by saying that “Kosovo and Israel are one of the most pro American nations in the world”.

well..Ferik I am glad I've seen something like that u've posted,I can say that this was one of the most important invitation sent to Kosovo ppl..I am so optimist that Israel will invest in Kosovo and support the Independence of Kosovo based in our history issues.I know those chetniks hate this but reality hurts!!Don't try to proclaim ur good the whole world know's you and ur shit vision...the only way for you to surive and trying to tell the world that you are "good" are those beautifull bitches you have, and going through history you'll get to know the truth!(remember Turks takin' granma's for Harem?)..I want everyone to know that those serbian bastards are sick canibals and they allways lose their battles...ask God to give as much girls in ur country as possible otherway you're gonna take place only in History of this world,there's no future for canibals!!!

This posting seems to have generated quite a buzz in the pan-Slavic blog-o-sphere and more specifically the Serbian and Russian blogs. I have also seen quite a bit of traffic coming from the right wing groups in Europe. I am unable to follow these blogs because I don’t understand most of these languages. Something seems to have hit the nerves of these people, but I don’t know what. Anybody?
