PRESS RELEASE FOR THE ATTACKS IN BRUSSELS - Europe in confrontation with Islamist Terror Print E-mail
Wednesday, 23 March 2016 08:08

Today, the 22nd of March 2016, Europe is once more devastated by the deadly attacks at the Brussels airport and metro station, only four months after the fatal attacks at the heart of Paris that caused the loss of lives of more than 130 innocent people, and as tragic sequence of the hit in Istanbul just three days ago. The circle of bloodshed seems endless.

Present day terrorism has a name and an ideology: It is the extreme political Isalm, the Jihadist Islamist movement. Europe has to rise against this enemy with tenacity and determination. Nevertheless, we must not draw parallels between Islamist murderers and the peaceful Muslims who live and work in Europe.

One of the painful political consequences of Islamist terrorism in Europe is that it encourages the racist and neo-Nazi extreme right. The response to Islamophobia cannot ever be neo-Nazism.

We, the Jewish people, have the tragic historical privilege to understand this better that any other human being. Europe must give a democratic response to the Islamist challenge and safeguard the safety of all its citizens.

ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE ONGOING STABBING ATTACKS IN ISRAEL Print E-mail
Friday, 11 March 2016 14:03


Since October 2015, we have been constantly witnessing a new wave of murderous attacks by Palestinians against innocent citizens of Israel.

The most recent attack took place on March 8, 2016 in Jerusalem, Jaffa and Petah Tikva and resulted into the death of one U.S. tourist and the serious injury of 13 Israelis.

This hideous event was not immediately condemned by the Palestinian political organizations, as they ought to, but instead it was praised and welcomed by Hamas.

The condemnation of these murderous attacks by the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece is self-evident. However, we would like to add that, as long as such abominable events still occur and are being welcomed by the Palestinian political organizations, the prospect of peace between the two nations is becoming even more distant.

ANNOUNCEMENT ΟΝ Α CARTOON TRIVIALIZING THE WESTERN WALL Print E-mail
Friday, 08 January 2016 12:46

The Wailing Wall was used in a cartoon posted on facebook by an internet group called “The Observatory” (Jan. 4) to mock Greek PM Tsipras’ decision to erect a monument, a “sacred wall”, dedicated to the executed activists of the Left during Greece’s civil war. The comment accompanying the cartoon trivializes the Western Wall by pointing out that this monument will be “SYRIZA’S Wailing Wall”, for tears of penitence to be spread over the unmet promises.  The inscription on the wall reads: “Wailing Wall of SYRIZA – Weep to be absolved of your sins”.

       * In reaction to this cartoon, which trivializes the Western Wall and the Jewish faith, the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece issued the following announcement:

        «The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece expresses its resentment over the use of a drawing of the Wailing Wall of Jerusalem, sacred site of the Jews, in a cartoon posted on the facebook account of the web community “Paratiritirio” (Observatory), aiming at mocking political controversies.

The religious comparison as well as the comments accompanying the post are condemnable for any sacred place they refer to.

It is our firm belief that satiric expression should respect all fundamental human rights along with the social, religious and cultural sensitivities of all groups of society».

ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE STABBING OF A JEWISH MAN IN MILAN Print E-mail
Friday, 13 November 2015 14:39

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece expresses the Greek Jewry’s repudiation and strongly condemns the violent attack with a knife against a Jewish man in Milan. The attack was held yesterday outside the city’s kosher restaurant, in a Jewish neighborhood where the Jewish school is nearby located.

According to the announcement of the Jewish Community of Milan the victim, Nathan Graff, was stabbed 10 times in the face and his back. The Authorities have begun investigations for arresting the perpetrator.

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece once again unequivocally points out the danger and the tragic consequences that derive from the dissemination of racial hatred. Rampant violence, in the new form of terror attacks, named as “the terrorism of the knives”, seems that starts to spread and afflict Europe, as manifested in yesterday’s attack in Milan and on other occasions.

European countries by all means must cooperate effectively in order to secure life and safety of their citizens, as well as protect the values of Democracy.

BRUSSELS EMBRACES THE ANTI-ISRAEL LABEL Print E-mail
Thursday, 12 November 2015 14:17

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, 11 NOVEMBER 2015, article by MOSHE KANTOR

Officials need to step back and ask why such a double standard is once again being tolerated in the European Union
.

It’s long been said that one of the cornerstones of Europe is fairness. Many politicians here often talk about giving people “a fair chance” in life. But now it seems we’ve reached the limits of that fairness, and it ends at Israel.

On Wednesday the European Union began implementing a labeling regime that requires the clear identification of certain products made in the West Bank. It’s now no longer enough to say where these products came from, as with products from anywhere else in the world. The labels must now also show whether the goods came from an “Israeli settlement.” Officials claim that this is meant to target what they view as Israel’s “occupation,” but what this really does is differentiate and discriminate between goods produced by two peoples living and working in the same territory .
