GREEK JEWISH PROTEST LETTER FOR READING OF EXCERPTS FROM "THE PROTOCOLS" IN THE PARLIAMENT Print E-mail
Tuesday, 30 October 2012 13:00
Following the reading by Member of Parliament Ilias Kasidiaris of the Chryssi Avgi (Golden Dawn) Party of an extract from the forgery ‘The Protocols of the Elders of Sion’ during a session of parliament, on October 23, 2012, in the House of Parliament, the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece sent a letter of protest to the President of the Greek Parliament, Mr Evangelos Maimarakis.
 
In this letter, the Central Board of Jewish Communities stresses that “the false 'Protocols of the Elders of Sion' are the most typical example of anti-Semitic propaganda in the world and were used by Hitler as a pretext for nazi persecutions.
It is worth to remind that the 'Protocols' have not only been denounced by international courts, but also by international bibliographers and pre-eminent historians as falsifications produced by the Okhrana, the Tsar’s own guard, to be used as a pretext for persecuting Jews.
 
The sound of extracts from the forgery of the “Protocols” being read aloud from the seats of the Greek House of Parliament has provoked great concern to the Greek Jewry. We believe that events such as this add to the proliferation of anti-Semitic stereotypes.
On the occasion we once again ask the sound representatives of the state and society to marginalize the ideologies, methodologies and propaganda of those who long for the return of Nazism".

The Holocaust Monument in the old city of the island of Rhodes was desecrated with graffiti and swastikas in the night of October 26 to 27, 2012.
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece issued the following Press Release:


PRESS RELEASE

Those who wish a return of Nazism and evil have once again defiled the Holocaust Memorial in the city of Rhodes by scrawling swastikas on it and obliterating the inscription ‘In memory of the victims of the Holocaust’.
 
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece and Greek Jewry in its entirety condemn this act and yet again call upon the authorities to take whatever steps are necessary to protect the city’s Holocaust Memorial which stands as a reminder to everyone of the barbarity with which Nazism drove 1,600 Jewish citizens of Rhodes to mass-produced death in concentration camps.
 
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece also calls for the arrest of those guilty of assaulting the city’s dignity and culture with their anti-Semitic raging.

In her letter, Mrs Tina Acketoft clarifies the procedure related to the appointment of committees and she stresses that “each national parliament decides the composition of its delegation, which must ensure a fair representation of the political parties or groups which are represented in parliament. The credentials of delegations can be challenged by Assembly members when they are submitted for ratification, which happens every year in January, or at any other part-session following elections”.

Government Spokesman Simos Kedikoglou condemned the desecration of the Holocaust Monument on the island of Rhodes with the following statement of October 30, 2012:

“The desecration of the Holocaust Monument in Rhodes is an immoral act which is to be strongly condemned. It is an act that insults Greece and the Greek people. It insults the memory of the Greek Jews who perished during the Holocaust.
The Greek Government condemns in the utmost determined way any act of bigotry and anti-Semitism. Such attitudes do not conform with the Greek civilization and history.

The competent authorities have enacted the necessary course of action in order to trace down the perpetrators and bring them to justice”. 
 
ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE NAZI SALUTE GIVEN BY PARTY LEADER Print E-mail
Tuesday, 23 October 2012 10:37
The leader of "Golden Dawn" N. Michaloliakos gave a Nazi salute, while addressing a fascist youth gathering in Athens, on Saturday October 20, 2012. As the mass media reported, Michaloliakos, with an extended right hand, said: "They call us Nazis but they have never called us thieves. These hands may sometimes salute like this […] but they are clean hands. They are not dirty. They have not stolen". All political parties made condemnation statements.
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece issued the following announcement:

"The Nazi salute given by a leader of a Greek party represented in the Greek Parliament, demonstrates in the most brutal way the nature of the threat launched against Greek Democracy.
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece has repeatedly pointed out that the devotees of Nazism, who deny the Holocaust, use racial violence, and give the Nazi salute, are repulsive to the Greek democratic citizens, provoke the outrage of the Greek Jews and brutally insult the memory of the Holocaust victims and of the fighters who sacrificed their lives for the principles of liberty, dignity and civilization.

We call upon the state, the politicians as well as the society not only to remain vigilant but to immediately and urgently take all the necessary measures to protect the principles of Democracy that are openly threatened by the devotees of Nazism so as not to allow society to be drifted into the darkness of racial hatred and anti-Semitism.

Athens, October 22, 2012
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece
