GOVERNMENT SPOKESMAN CONDEMNED THE DESECRATION OF THE RHODES MONUMENT Print E-mail
Wednesday, 31 October 2012 08:05
Government Spokesman Simos Kedikoglou condemned the desecration of the Holocaust Monument on the island of Rhodes with the following statement of October 30, 2012:

“The desecration of the Holocaust Monument in Rhodes is an immoral act which is to be strongly condemned. It is an act that insults Greece and the Greek people. It insults the memory of the Greek Jews who perished during the Holocaust.
The Greek Government condemns in the utmost determined way any act of bigotry and anti-Semitism. Such attitudes do not conform with the Greek civilization and history.

The competent authorities have enacted the necessary course of action in order to trace down the perpetrators and bring them to justice”.

The Chairwoman of the Committee on Equality and Non Discrimination of the PACE, Mrs. Tina Acketoft replied to the letter of the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece protesting Mrs Zaroulia’s (Golden Dawn MP) participation to the Committee.
In her letter, Mrs Tina Acketoft clarifies the procedure related to the appointment of committees and she stresses that “each national parliament decides the composition of its delegation, which must ensure a fair representation of the political parties or groups which are represented in parliament. The credentials of delegations can be challenged by Assembly members when they are submitted for ratification, which happens every year in January, or at any other part-session following elections”.

GREEK JEWRY PROTESTS FOR GOLDEN DAWN MEMBERSHIP TO NON-DISCRIMINATION COMMITTEE OF THE CoE - SIGN THE PETITION OF THE EUJS Print E-mail
Thursday, 11 October 2012 13:21
With regard to the appointment of Golden Dawn MP Eleni Zaroulia to the Committee on Equality and Non-Discrimination of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece addressed a letter to the Committee's Chairwoman Mrs. Tina Acketoft, expressing the Greek Jewry's distress and astonishment on the issue.  

As pointed out in the letter: “As known, Mrs. Zaroulia is a Greek MP with the Golden Dawn party which promotes neonazi ideology and adopts racist and violent practices. Inter alia, the party’s leader has openly and publicly denied the Holocaust on TV just a few months ago.
On behalf of the Greek Jewry we express our astonishment and profound concern for the way and the criteria of participation of a person representing such an ideology to the PACE Equality and Non-Discrimination Committee.
We express the belief that the Equality and Non-Discrimination Committee will not tolerate any manifestation, comment or expression of anti-Semitic or racial prejudice, and will safeguard the fundamental principles of democracy and respect of human rights”.

ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE NAZI SALUTE GIVEN BY PARTY LEADER Print E-mail
Tuesday, 23 October 2012 10:37
The leader of "Golden Dawn" N. Michaloliakos gave a Nazi salute, while addressing a fascist youth gathering in Athens, on Saturday October 20, 2012. As the mass media reported, Michaloliakos, with an extended right hand, said: "They call us Nazis but they have never called us thieves. These hands may sometimes salute like this […] but they are clean hands. They are not dirty. They have not stolen". All political parties made condemnation statements.
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece issued the following announcement:

"The Nazi salute given by a leader of a Greek party represented in the Greek Parliament, demonstrates in the most brutal way the nature of the threat launched against Greek Democracy.
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece has repeatedly pointed out that the devotees of Nazism, who deny the Holocaust, use racial violence, and give the Nazi salute, are repulsive to the Greek democratic citizens, provoke the outrage of the Greek Jews and brutally insult the memory of the Holocaust victims and of the fighters who sacrificed their lives for the principles of liberty, dignity and civilization.

We call upon the state, the politicians as well as the society not only to remain vigilant but to immediately and urgently take all the necessary measures to protect the principles of Democracy that are openly threatened by the devotees of Nazism so as not to allow society to be drifted into the darkness of racial hatred and anti-Semitism.

Athens, October 22, 2012
