SIGN THE WJC PLEDGE TO FIGHT BACK AGAINST HATE
During this urgent moment of unrest and uncertainty, I stand with Black and other minority communities who are oppressed and endangered by a newly emboldened generation of white supremacists and extremists, even as they confront our nation’s painful legacy of racial discrimination. 

As a dedicated member of the World Jewish Congress and a proud member of the global Jewish community, I will never be silent in the face of hatred, no matter where it emanates or who is threatened by it. At this most difficult time, I re-commit myself to fighting back against all forms of racism, bigotry, and extremism. SIGN THE WJC PLEDGE HERE.

 
KIS ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE POLITICAL SPOT OF SYRIZA

Opposition party of the Left “SYRIZA” uploaded a political video spot, entitled "How much does Moses Cost?" on the party’s website, facebook and You Tube channel, on June 19, 2020. The video, was produced in an attempt to criticize the Government’s funding of the mass media during the pandemic.

The reference to Moses in the video was strongly condemned by the Journalists’ Union of Athens Daily Newspapers (ESIEA), the frm. President of the Athens Jewish Community Minos Moissis, the Secretary General of KIS Victor Eliezer and many prominent journalists. KIS issued the following announcement (June 22, 2020):

«When we watched SYRIZA’s political spot “How much does Moses cost?” we wondered how was it possible for a party with a determining contribution to the fight against antisemitism to reproduce antisemitic stereotypes in order to serve its opposition policy, linking Moses with the money falling down from the sky as the “manna from heaven”.

Three days after its launch the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece expresses its regret over the fact that -in spite of the massive reactions- SYRIZA did not withdraw this spot, with its only reaction being that of characterizing it as “satiric”.

In times when conspiracy theories thrive and threaten peaceful coexistence within society, the perpetuation of stereotypical myths -especially when coming from a political party such as SYRIZA- nourishes the supporters of intolerance and anti-Semitism. We are sure that the leadership of SYRIZA will realize that this spot was -at the very least- an unfortunate accident and that it will withdraw it from public confrontation.

We hope that all sides will avoid the use of religious symbols and figures -especially when used with a negative connotation- because religious faith cannot and should not be part of any political confrontation».

Thursday, 26 July 2012 06:17
The new ‘Golden Dawn’ MP Mr Artemios Mathaiopoulos was sworn in as a member of the Greek Parliament yesterday following the resignation of an MP from the region of Serres. In the past, Mr Mathaiopoulos was a bass player in a hard rock Greek band called “Pogrom”(!); a band with a vast repertoire of fiercely racist, fascist, vulgar and anti-Semitic songs. “Auschwitz”, a song with lyrics like “fuck Anne Frank”, “fuck the tribe of Abraham”, “piss on the Wailing Wall” “Juden raus” and  “Auschwitz, how much I love it”, is characteristic of the band’s ‘work’.
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece has protested on behalf of Greek Jewry with letters to the President of the Greek Parliament and to Greek political parties.

ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING INSULTING STATEMENTS BY NAZI DEVOTEES Print E-mail
Tuesday, 15 May 2012 09:39
The election of devotees of Nazism has dealt the Greek Democracy a serious blow. Their own leader, who looks with nostalgia at the darkest days in European history and hankers after the suffering that spread across the whole of Europe, including Greece, verified this in his own words in an interview he gave on Mega channel (in “Protagonistes”, with St. Theodorakis) claiming, among other things, that there were no ovens [crematoria] or gas chambers at Auschwitz.
This is an affront to historical fact, to the memory of six million of our fellow Jews (70,000 of them Greek Jews) who were massacred in the death camps of Auschwitz, Dachau and Treblinka, and in the other places of industrialised extermination set up by Adolf Hitler for the implementation of the ‘Final Solution’ to the Jewish problem. It is an affront to surviving witnesses of the atrocities. It is an affront to all those who resisted and fought to stop the raging Nazi fury. It is an affront to the history of Greece, to the struggles and sacrifices that the people of Greece made in defence of the principles of liberty, democracy and humanity.
We call upon the Government of the Hellenic Republic, the political leaders of the country, social organizations, educational bodies, and people who uphold spiritual and cultural values to voice their unequivocal condemnation and to isolate the forces that aim to revive the darkest ideas ever to surface in European history. 
Athens, May 14, 2012
