THE CENTRAL BOARD OF JEWISH COMMUNITIES IN GREECE ISSUED THE FOLLOWING PRESS RELEASE AFTER SYRIZA'S DECISION REGARDING THE CANDIDACY OF THEODOROS KARYPIDIS Print E-mail
Sunday, 09 February 2014 17:26

 The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece, in a press announcement of 5/2/2014, had expressed the Greek Jewry’s concern and astonishment for the decision made by the political party of SYRIZA to appoint as candidate for Regional Governor of Western Macedonia Mr. Theodoros Karypidis, who in the past had made offensive statements for the Jews and the Jewish religion.

The Greek Jewry had also expressed the hope that SYRIZA, as a significant democratic party would strictly follow the policy against racism and anti-Semitism which is adopted by all democratic parties in Greece and in Europe.

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece expresses its satisfaction for the most recent decision taken by the leadership of SYRIZA, which actually places on the margins of Greek society those who disseminate views that incite racism, intolerance and anti-Semitism. With this decision, SYRIZA launches a strong and clear message towards the Greek society that anti-Semitism is to be condemned as a phenomenon of racism and bigotry that breeds hatred against Jews and in the same time constitutes a threat against democracy itself as well as against the principles and values of a free society.

As we stated, ιt is our common duty to safeguard the principles of democracy, freedom and religious tolerance in the 2014 Greece, against those who serve the forces of darkness and anti-Semitic stereotypes.
