The third largest political party in Greece, the controversial far-right patriotic Golden Dawn, have released a video revealing the plight of Hellenism and Greek Orthodoxy in Syria.
The speaker reveals the Syrian government is the only force protecting Syria’s Christian Greek Orthodox minority from extermination by the likes of ISIS and other extremist groups.
He then goes on to question why the Greek government cut all diplomatic ties with Syria.
Special mention is made to Operation Antioch, a grassroots movement that aims to not only preserve, but also revive Hellenism in Syria. The Golden Dawn spokesperson goes on to question why they receive no support.
With the hope that a major political party in Greece has raised awareness to the plight of the Greek Orthodox minority in Syria, it remains hopeful that the centre-right New Democracy and the radical-left Syriza party will also engage in protecting this Syrian community.
