KIS ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE STATEMENT OF THE FORMER JUSTICE MINISTER Print E-mail
Monday, 12 December 2016 14:26

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece (KIS) issued the following announcement in reaction to a statement made by former Justice Minister Nikos Paraskevopoulos (also in his interview published on Sunday’s edition of ‘Vradini’ newspaper, of Dec. 11, 2016), in which he expressed his viewpoint on the “integration of Golden Dawn within the democratic political system”. The frm. Minister’s statement arose strong criticism which led him to issue a clarifying announcement. KIS’s announcement reads as follows:

“The convergence with the neo-Nazi party in the context of the democratic political system cannot but lead to its own abolishment, to the alteration of the very democracy itself that the neo-Nazis aim at destroying. Every democratic society needs to protect the democratic institutions, safeguard civilization and human rights regardless of skin colour, race or religion, against the followers of the darkest page of our history, against the nightmare of neo-Nazism in Greece.

We hope that former Justice Minister Nikos Paraskevopoulos will take into account that those who have the swastika as their emblem cannot be integrated in any democratic framework and that there can be no convergence with the seekers of a regime that led humanity to its most barbaric period in history, that caused a ruthless war with millions of victims and sent six million Jews and hundreds of thousands of other “different” people to the most industrialized and horrific death.
