Antisemitic references were made by Golden Dawn MP Michail Arvanitis, in the Greek Parliament, during the session of Sept. 30, 2014, during which the Parliament passed in principle the draft Bill on “The organisation of the legal status of religious communities and their associations in Greece.”
MP Arvanitis referred to the propagandistic slander that the Greek Jews do not pay taxes, which he admitted to be false, only to rephrase and point out that the Greek Jews through their contributions to their Jewish communities send the Jewish money into the Jewish banks while the State spends money for them. He also put our Board’s legal status into doubt. MP Arvanitis was debated MP Adonis Georgiadis (parliamentary representative of the Governing party of Nea Dimokratia), who stressed the falsity of Arvanitis’ statements.

It is to be noted that the new Bill, which was voted by article on Oct.1st, does not either apply to or influence the legal status of our Board and the Greek Jewish Communities, which are legal entities under state law.
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece issued the following announcement (October 7.2014):

“The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece expresses the Greek Jewry’s repudiation for the unfounded accusations launched in the Hellenic Parliament by an MP of the neonazi party against the Greek citizens of Jewish religion, during the discussion of the draft bill on the religious communities. Such slur is not worthy of any further comment … As the ancient Greeks said, let’s deliver the impropriety in contempt”.
