Members of the “Watch:Antisemitism in Europe” project have found walls covered with hateful graffiti in central streets of Iraklion (Agiou Mina Str. & Dikeosinis Str.), the capital of the island of Crete.

The slogans may have been daubed by different individuals and they target the Americans (red writing, see photo above), the Pope, the Jehovah’s Witnesses & the LGBT people (the words “syko” meaning “fig” & “ftera” meaning “wings” are associated to “diavoloi” meaning “devils”). There are also references to the Athens Polytechnic uprising in 1973 and the Greek Communist Party (KKE). The Star of David has been painted along with an anarchist, a peace and a euro currency symbol. A Venus symbol has been painted in the Star of David. A Mercury symbol figures nearby.

It seems that nobody in Iraklion is disgusted until now by these messages of hate.
