From desecrations to burning
THE NAZIS BECOME BLATANT WITH THE TOLERANCE OF THE POLITICAL REGIME
THE BURNING OF THE SYNAGOGUE AT CHANIA MUST SOUND ALARM!
The nazis become blatant.
Within a 20 days period two fire attacks were perpetrated in the synagogue of Chania. The first attack took place on January 5 and the perpetrators also threw a bar of soap (!) against the external wall of the Synagogue. Grace to the immediate intervention of two immigrants, the Firing Squad was quickly been informed and the arsonists missed their target.
But after the first attack, the new minister of “Citizen’s Protection”, M. Chrysohoides, apparently “forgot to protect” the Greek Jewish citizens. The director of the Synagogue, Mr. Stavroulakis, denounces that although the necessity of guard had been mentioned no such move was made by the police. At the dawn of Saturday, January 16, at 4:00 a.m., a second bigger arson took place, which caused very serious damage to the Synagogue by burning a large part of its archive and of the rare books that were preserved in its library.
The double incediary attack against the Synagogue of Chania was the escalation of a barage of anti-Semitic attacks on synagogues, Jewish monuments and cemeteries that happened last year at Volos, Larissa, Corfu, in Athens, and Ioannina.
The Antinazi Initiative condemns all parliamentary parties, that covered by their essential silence the double incediary attack on the Synagogue of Chania!
It is the same people that for years now approve of the legality of the “Chrysi Avgi” (“Golden Dawn”) murderous nazi gang.
It is the same people who have legalized the genocidal anti-Semitism by covering up the aquittal of the nazi K. Plevris!
The Antinazi Initiative considers the so-called leftists that are anti-Semites as especially responsible for that situation!
We call upon all democrats to rally and struggle in order to fight the cannibalistic anti-Semitism that has firmly got a foot in the state, the justice and all the parliamentary parties.
