Christos Pappas, a lawmaker for the ultra-nationalist Golden Dawn party in Greece called Israel an “eternal enemy of Greece and Orthodoxy.”

“The state of Israel implements genocidal methods and is a regional troublemaker,” he said, according to the Kathemirini newspaper, asking how “a state like Israel could possibly have relations with Greece, which is the cradle of civilization and humanism.”

In response, Greek Defense Minister Panos Kammenos urged that the Justice Ministry take action for Pappas’ comments made in parliament.

The comments came about through a debate on ratifying agreements Greece has with other countries.

Golden Dawn have been accused of being Nazi sympathizers because of their denial of Nazi death camps and imagery resembling the swastika.

I’m becoming more convinced that you Arabs deserve to be in the sh*t you’re in. You are aways backstabbing and plotting against each other left and right and when one mentions who your biggest enemy is, the Israelis duhhhh, you attack him for having “Nazi sympathies”. Well, why don’t any of you have the b***s to attack Israel? Are you waiting for us white Europeans to do it for you? You know that without those white Russians militarily aiding your government, Syria would have been defeated a long time ago. Never trust an Arab, I guess!

Do you know that you are quoting a Nazi f**k?
An Enemy of Israel doesn’t mean necessarily that he is Arab or Muslim Friendly!

Yeah, an anti-semite says anti-semitic things. Big whoop. Al-Masdar News, please don’t turn into a nazi-friendly medium. We care about Syria, not nazi Greek guys quoting nazi things. Also, Antonopoulos sounds Greek enough to me, so he should know who Pappas is. Utterly disappointing.

Reporting on stories doesn’t mean endorsing them. Not liking an article does not give you any authority to call for its recall. They report on many news; some you may like and others otherwise.

There was nothing remotely biased about this article. They talked about the ultra-nationalist party he belongs to and the sympathy they have for Nazism.

I do not ask for any authority, I am just questioning, as a follower of the medium, the reason why once every short while, al-masdar reports quotes by Golden Dawn members. You are right to an extent, I acknowledge that they mention what the Golden Dawn is, but I cannot understand the reason why this is news, the fact that a nazi said something bad about Israel.

I don’t forget anything, not even the crimes of Christians AGAINST christians, but this is not the point. If Satan comes down to Earth and says “1+1=2”, will you say “oh, yeah, well, the guy’s right, better listen to him”? No, you will question the reason why he is saying that, and where he set his trap.

No mate, he is not even an ultranationalist. He is a nazi. A nazi ideologist. which I fully understand how different it is to being an ultranationalist, or a nationalist, or whatever. This guy, and the whole of golden dawn, is a nazi party. UKIP, Le Pen, and all these guys are nationalists, Pappas is a nazist. Please get your facts straight before you go around mumbling bullshit about zionism or whatever.

LePen (I mean daddy Jean-Marie), due to his claims about gas-chambers is clearly more in nazism than nationalism. His daughter being a lawyer don’t make such errors as inciting to racial or sectarian hatred can cost a lot in France but you can trust her that she’s as full of love for jews as for arabs… Nazism is banned in France so nazis will all pretend to be nationalists 😉 BTW, “Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn” is also the name of an english occultist/satanic cult, one of its prominent members, for a few years, was the infamous Aleister Crowley…… Read more »
