Greek Jewish Community calls for zero tolerance with Neo-Nazi formations

The Greek Jewish Commmunity made a statement calling for zero-tolerance with Neo-Nazi formations in Greece:

“The Central Jewish Council of Greece expresses the strong conviction of Greek Jewry that the Greek government together with all the democratic forces of our country are vigilant and will not allow any neo-Nazi formation that reappears in the Greek parliament to insult the values ​​of humanity and democracy. They will not allow the followers of obscurantism to bring back security forces, swastikas, Nazi salutes and violence to Greece.

And precisely because we do not forget that 6,000,000 of our co-religionists were brutally killed in the Nazi extermination camps, because our country, like all of Europe, suffered from the Nazi rampage with millions of victims, we must all show zero tolerance to any operation to overthrow prosperity and the harmonious living of citizens regardless of color, race, sex or religion.”

In the last general elections, far right parties managed to recieve 12% of the popular vote.

The Spartans party, which recently added a jailed MP from Golden Dawn to its list of backers, secured 13 seats, the ultra-nationalist Greek Solution got 12 seats and the orthodox extremist NIKI got 10 MPS.
