Spiegel: Greece Fears the Revenge of neo-Nazis

spiegelThe German news magazine Der Spiegel talks about a rising concern in Greece after the killing of two Golden Dawn members on the evening of Friday November 1st in Neo Irakleio, a suburb in the northern part of Athens, Greece. Spiegel fears that after the double murder the country could slide back to political instability.

The shooting of the Golden Dawn members made the headlines in all the international media. With an article entitled “Greece fears the revenge of neo-Nazis” which was published in the magazine’s internet version, Spiegel wrote that the authorities in Greece were waiting  long for the terrorist attack that happened photographing far left organizations. The Anti-terrorist department of Greek Police has undertaken to investigate the case.

In addition, the article mentions the murder of Pavlos Fyssas, noting that the double murder outside the headquarters of Golden Dawn in Neo Irakleio could be in revenge for the death of the 34-year-olf hip hop artist. Finally the Spiegel states that after the killing of Pavlos Fyssas, far right Greek political party of Golden Dawn had lost a big part of its popularity and that it now tries to us the recent double murder to serve its own purposes.

  1. What about the 2 criminal gangs from PASOK & New Democracy Parties running
    this Government of Thieves, Liars & Crooks who created all these problems
    today? It was PASOK & ND Parties who created Golden Dawn and the Far Left
    by their corrupt rule and mismanagement of Greece. (Akis Tzahadzopolous from
    PASOK is just one example of their corruption).

    1.) Why isn’t PASOK’s MP Venizelos in jail for hiding the Legarde List 2
    years in his home? And what about Venizelos’
    controversial submarine bribery deal, he signed in 2010?

    2.) Why isn’t PASOK’s Finance MP Papconstantiou in jail for removing his
    relative’s names on the List?

    3.) What about PASOK & ND Parties still owing 250 million Euros to the
    Banks in phony loans they have not paid back yet?

    It seems to me the Gov’t and Press is using Golden Dawn as a
    “distraction” to take attention away from the Massive Crimes these
    two corrupt Parties have committed as well as Treason against the whole Greek
    nation after 39 years of corrupt rule!

  2. “Spiegel wrote that the authorities in Greece were waiting  long for the terrorist attack that happened photographing far left organizations.”

    Everybody knew that Leftist terrorists were planning to launch a murderous terror attack on Golden Dawns offices especially the Greek police, Greek government and Golden Dawn themselves. This is why Golden Dawn requested 24 hour police protection at it’s offices. The public order minister Nikos Dendias withdrew Golden Dawns police protection at their offices. The VERY NEXT DAY 2 young members of Golden Dawn were murdered execution style with the authorities focusing on Leftist terrorists as the culprits.

  3. You are right that the extreme left in Greece exists. By far most of the violence in Greece is actually by leftists. (including murders). Sadly leftists are in denial of this stone cold fact. (including Greek Reporter were constant leftist riots are framed as “protest” rather than terrorism)

    And for all the communist claims of supporting “democracy” in practice communists oppressed all other parties during the cold war in lew of tyrannical single party dictatorships. Communists tend to confuse the world democracy with meaning the same thing as their communist ideology rather than see it for what it really is. A way for people of differing views to freely express their opinions and have a vote to decide state matters. Democracy is certainly not an endorsement for some particular ideology.

    That said, GD complaints about losing their political statues… after years of ranting against democratic rule… is hardly a moral consistent position. Those that actually believe in democracy allow for competing views (including GD and communists)…. with a single caveat. Their opponents don’t use force to silence all other opposing views or attempt to end the electoral process. Democracy cannot feed its enemies.

    GD is dead. The sooner you realize this the sooner you can move on with your life. You can choose to repeat the same mistakes and end up in the same place or you can choose to learn from them.
