A few months ago, Symβiosis, Greek partner of Get the Trolls Out!, denounced that totally unethical practice of Eleftheri Ora’s to the Journalists’ Union of Athens Daily Newspapers (ESIEA). The Journalists’ body had to take the appropriate measures for the blatant infringement of articles 1 and 2 of their profession’s code of conduct. The complaint targeted some Eleftheri Ora’s front pages (July-October 2015) which leave no uncertainty about its antisemitism. For example, it is claimed that Merkel and Schäuble are presented as Jewish Masons who covet the country’s mineral wealth. Another headline claims that Jews are presented as being aware of and planning the moment of Antichrist’s arrival. Also, Alexis Tsipras is described as Islamised Jew who is planning to destroy the Greek people. Finally, it is “revealed” that Lagarde’s list is not deployed because it also contains name of Jews.
No response from ESIEA
Although there have been almost four months since that denouncement that was also made public, ESIEA has not yet provided any related answer. Also, they are likely not to have ordered any inspection procedure of the newspaper and its editors. All that happens while Eleftheri Ora not only has continued pouring its anti-Semitic poison but has instead increased its attacks against Jews. Generally, since November 2015 and up until now, its front pages has been “informing” us on the Jewish presence behind the attacks in Paris and the extension of cohabitation agreement to same-sex couples, that Greek Jews do not pay taxes, that Kuriakos Mitsotakis (the new leader of New Democracy, Greece’s main conservative party) is the man of the Jews, that the new identity cards – that will certainly “depict the Satan” – will be printed by an Israeli company, and finally, that there “great massacre of Greeks has been committed by Jews” (don’t bother look for this “news” anywhere else; it is simply a distorted reference to a historical event that took place quite formerly, just about 19 centuries ago).
