For the second time in less than three months, the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece addressed a letter of protest to Ioannis Alafouzos, president of SKAI media group, regarding TV broadcast “Sniper”, presented by journalist George Tragas. During the programme, televised by SKAI channel on Sunday June 30, 2013, the journalist made accusations that the “Jewish lobby ordered the Greek Government to erase religion insertion from the Greek identity cards“. Tragas also referred to “our friends the Israelis and the Jews that have many times manifested against the Greek policy and the Greek State”.
The letter to Mr. Alafouzos, dated July 5, 2013, stresses the following:

“Mr. Alafouzos,

In our letter of April 10, 2013 we had expressed our indignation at the promotion and dissemination of the extremely racist sentiments displayed by Holocaust deniers and proponents of Nazism in Greece through the television programme presented by Mr Tragas on SKAI  TV channel.

Since then, in an unacceptable manner, the same collaborator of your channel, in his weekly show, continues to “accuse the Jewish Lobby” and the “Jews” at large, of being responsible for decisions made by the Greek State and for the hardships of the Greek people. In this way, with no evidence, and with no respect for truth, your collaborator systematically and persistently, having no scruples, disseminates hatred against Jews.
Unfortunately, SKAI TV -through its policy of tolerance towards these unfounded accusations against the Jews, disseminated by the programme of your collaborator- damages the profile of your channel and the principle of objective information. It damages the very truth itself.
We express our regret, our outrage and ask for your immediate action in order to stop this anti-Semitic campaign promoted by this specific TV programme of your channel”.
