INTERNATIONAL
AJC DELEGATION CONCLUDES VISIT TO GREECE Print E-mail
Monday, 28 January 2013 09:05
January 25, 2013 – Athens – AJC, the global advocacy organization, concluded a two-day visit to Greece on Friday. The ten-person AJC group, chaired by Executive Director David Harris, was joined by Greek-American leader and former Assistant Secretary of Commerce Andrew Manatos. Leaders of Greece's Jewish community, including Central Board President David Saltiel and Athens President Benjamin Albalas, as well as AJC leaders from across the U.S., rounded out the delegation.
AJC was received at the highest levels of the Greek government, beginning with Prime Minister Antonis Samaras, with whom the group met for 90 minutes.  In addition, the program included separate meetings with six members of the Cabinet – the ministers of foreign affairs, national defense, public order, justice, education and tourism. The delegation also met with Evangelos Venizelos, president of PASOK, the junior coalition partner in the current government, as well as the ambassadors of the United States and Israel to Greece.
The presence of AJC in Greece raised the ire of the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party, which decried the visit as an attempt to exert "Jewish influence over Greek political issues."  A statement released by Golden Dawn Thursday evening went on to assail Harris and predict that Greece's political leadership "will once again express its total subjugation to the whims of the ‘chosen’ people."

HUNGARIAN LAW EXPOSES "ABUSIVE" POLITICIANS TO FINES, REMOVAL Print E-mail
Friday, 21 December 2012 10:23
Amid a public outcry over anti-Semitic statements by a Hungarian lawmaker, the country’s parliament has passed an amendment to punish politicians that use “abusive” speech.
The amendment, which was passed Dec. 17, exposes lawmakers and others appearing in parliament to fines and physical removal from the premises if they use “abusive language,” the Hungarian news agency Magyar Távirati Iroda (MTI) reported.
Last month, Jobbik’s foreign policy cabinet head, Marton Gyongyosi, said that the recent Gaza escalation “makes it timely to tally up people of Jewish ancestry who live here, especially in the Hungarian government, who, indeed, pose a national security risk to Hungary.”

Thursday, 19 July 2012 12:11
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece expresses its repudiation for the latest terror attack against innocent Israeli citizens, which took place yesterday in Bulgaria and resulted in seven dead and dozens of wounded.
This hideous act, following last week’s attempt in Cyprus, reminds the humanity that hatred and fundamentalism feed blind terror which once more struck innocent Israelis, this time tourists visiting a country of the European Union.
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece conveys the Greek Jewry’s condolences to the families of the tragic victims and to the people of Israel. It also wishes a speedy recovery to those injured.

OPEN LETTER: WE ARE ALL GREEK JEWS Print E-mail

From the Website www.guardian.co.uk

The neo-Nazi party
Golden Dawn entered the Greek parliament this month. With its swastika-inspired emblem, Hitlerian salute, reference to Mein Kampf, antisemitic and racist ideology, Holocaust denial, violence against migrants, threats against journalists and personality cult, the party is the lineal heir of the German national-socialist party that led Europe and the world into chaos and bloodshed.
Unfortunately, Greece is not the only country threatened by this revival of Nazi ideology. In Latvia this year, the president of the republic has for the first time supported the annual former Waffen SS march, in spite of strong criticism. In Austria the FPÖ, an extreme right organisation that nurtures Third Reich nostalgia, is favourite in the polls for the next parliamentary elections. In Hungary, the Hungarian Guard Movement, descendant of The Arrow Cross party – the former militia responsible for the extermination of Jews and Gypsies – terrorises Jewish populations and holds direct responsibility for provoking deadly attacks against Roma people.

ANNOUNCEMENT for the SHOOTING in TOULOUSE Print E-mail
Tuesday, 20 March 2012 11:33

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece expresses the Greek Jewry’s deep sorrow and devastation for the murder of four people, three of whom were children, after the shooting that took place outside the Jewish school Ozar Hatorah in Toulouse, France.  
This cold-blooded murder of innocent pupils and their teacher proves that anti-Semitism leads to criminal actions without any limit. All European countries, including Greece, are obliged to protect the values of Democracy and  secure the life of their citizens regardless of race, religion or sex. The new generation should learn that racism, fanaticism, intolerance and anti-Semitism lead to hideous crimes against human lives and insult our civilization.

The Greek Jewry expresses its condolences to the families of the victims and also to the French Jewry.
