ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE RHETORIC OF HATE LAUNCHED BY A RELIGIOUS REPRESENTATIVE IN XANTHI Print E-mail
Tuesday, 29 March 2016 08:51

We were informed by a recent press article of the newspaper “Parapolitica” (March 19, 2016) that Ahmet Mete, a religious figure in Xanthi, during his speech delivered in August 2014, at the village of Glafki, stated inter alia: “Curse against Israel! For these are the ones turned into soap by the Germans. But Hitler was right when he said: now you will be angry with me but one day I will be proved right about the Jews. Now our curse goes upon them, and our prayers upon our brothers”. 

A ministrant of a religious minority, the muslim minority, instead of being a preacher of religious peace, tolerance and reconciliation, becomes a preacher of hatred. It is not his right to do so. Even if he does not feel the moral obligation to teach reconciliation among people, he certainly does not have the right to preach hatred.

It is well known that anti-Semitism –that often reaches the point of praising Nazism and Hitler- flourishes in Islamist regimes. Nevertheless, the religious figure of Xanthi should know that such attitude is not tolerated in Greece. And if he does not know that himself, we–as a society and as a state- should mind letting him know.

On our end, the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece, will always be in alert against any case of anti-Semitic rhetoric regardless of origins.
