SYRIZA’s close relationship with Zionists was seen on full display on July 31st, 2013, with an official meeting between SYRIZA’s delegation and representatives of KISE (Central Jewish Council Of Greece). A press release put out by SYRIZA’s central committee on a so-called “International Day Against Fascism and Anti-Semitism” in November was proudly put on display by KISE on their website.
The quote reads: “On the eve of the International Day Against Fascism and Anti-semitism, which is celebrated every year on November 9thto commemorate the pogrom of Jews in Nazi Germany in 1938, SYRIZA delegates visited the Jewish Museum of Greece and the Synogogue of Athens. This tragic anniversary was the beginning of the Jewish Holocaust and went down in history as Kristallnacht. It was the initiator of horrors, which lived all of humanity during the second World War. For SYRIZA, the Jewish Holocaust is an extreme expression of brutal racism, but because of the suffering of the entire planet in that war, they are symbols calling every democratic and free man to a constant struggle for a peaceful break of humanity away from Nazism, anti-Semitism, and xenophobia.
Then the delegation of SYRIZA, consisting of Thessaloniki MP Ioannis Amanatides, Stathis Liantas, and member of the Secretariat of the Department of Education of SYRIZA, Giorgo Bougeleka, met with the Chairman of the Central Jewish Council in Greece. The meeting was attended by the president of the Jewish Community of Athens, and the director of the Jewish Museum –as a follow up to a previous meeting of the two parties on issues of concern to the Jewish community in Greece. Representatives of SYRIZA stated categorically that they will continue to take steps to preserve and enhance historical memory. Finally, both sides continued dialogue aimed at mutual understanding and issues of common interest.”
When they spoke of historical memory, naturally minds are not expected to think of historical atrocities or genocides against Hellenism. Only one story is important: let nobody dare to ‘deny’ that six million Jews were killed by the Nazis. Everything else, especially situations where Greeks were the victims, is up for debate and can wait. We are curious about whether the SYRIZA self-described “humanitarians” dared to question the Zionists about the mass-murder of civilians and children in Palestine by the Israeli government? Are they even expected to show regret and keep this in their historical memory? What about the role of international usurers in the bondage and suffering of Greece via the memorandum happening today?
Something tells us that “the dialogue aimed at mutual understanding and on matters of common interest” is centered around the issues of collaboration in the war against Golden Dawn, the only unconquered and impossible to buy political power, as well as how to ensure the high interest loans of global money lenders are paid in full. The reality of the past few months shows that for SYRIZA, actual principles of human rights are irrelevant.
One last thing: Are the comrades of the “revolutionary” Left who wear Palestinian scarves going to appeal to the SYRIZA central committee to stop collaborating with Greece’s top Zionist lobby, the KIS?
