If there was any doubt that the para-state Anarchists were motivated by deep ethnic animosity against Hellenism, now we can see it reinforced in this tasteless hate crime. The monument to Athanasios Diakos, an independence fighter who gave his life to free Greece from the Ottoman occupation, and Tsamis Karatasos another martyr, were desecrated by the known unknowns:
If even a stroke was painted on a Turkish or Jewish monument, the not-for-long-mayor of Thessaloniki Boutaris would order the municipality by edict to repair the damage.
But when the Anarcho-perverts vandalize two symbols of Greek independence and revolution, Mr Boutaris simply does not give a damn.
As soon as the administration of the city is taken by Golden Dawn and Greek interests are represented in Thessaloniki, the monuments of freedom fighters will enjoy the honor and respect they deserve!
