Vile antisemitism by Avriani newspaper/ Χυδαίος αντισημιτισμός από την “Αυριανή”

The recent presidential campaign of the US has been one of the most followed ones in the past years. In Greece the huge antipathy for George W. Bush has led to an overwhelming support for Barack Obama who is deemed as more friendly to greek interests and the only one able to change drastically US policy.
During this campaign, possibly due to the ignorance which characterizes a significant part of the greek Press, innuendos concerning the Jewish vote and the Jewish (sic) lobby where abundant; whether this being a direct statement that Bush relied on the Jewish lobby or a more subtle one when state television NET noted with meaning that only F.Y.R.O.M. and Israel supported McCain. Their ignorance is evident by the fact that American Jews have, historically, always massively supported Democratic candidates, being self described as liberals. This holds true for Al Gore in 2000 with 79% of the total jewish voters, John Kerry in 2004 with 74% and with Barack Obama for a projected 77%. This has been consistent with all the polls who have for months predicted the traditional huge gap between Republicans and Democrats – not that greek Press would ever care to note.
But yesterdays front page by Avriani newspaper was beyond any limit and was blatant, pure and vile antisemitism:
“THE END OF JEWISH DOMINION”
“Everything changes in America which we hope it becomes more democratic and human”
These are the key points in this revolting article:
To a substantial marginalization of the jewish lobby from the power centers of Washington, with first being the one of the White House, shall lead the election to presidency of the USA of Barack Hussein Obama, the first colored with has succeeded…
…Obama has been funded by financial centers who depend on huge arabic capital and the influence of the jewish lobby in his staff is anticipated to be downgraded after the howling attempt to have the Jew Lieberman to be groomed for the State Department in a McCain government, (he is the chosen one of the jewish lobby…
…and on the other hand the “black lodge” of Bush’s neocons and the ones who give them orders in the jewish lobby, whose puppets is the McCain-Pallin duo.
…another black, Colin Power who got fired from Bush’s hawks, who disagreed with the war in Iraq and payed the price of getting politically proscripted by the jewish lobby.
“Whether Powell is going to take over an official position is something to be discussed”, he stressed, enraging even more the zionist centers. And as analysts of the USA interpret, the answer came by israeli Defence minister Ehud Barack.
Denying the multipolarity that is defined by the new world reality is clearly interpreted by the jewish lobby-controlled US intelligence centers, whose connection with the Israeli Mossad was enforced as an absolute rule by the Bush presidency.
And it is not casual the fact that opposition in the CIA and NSA stopped the neocon hawks that ruled in the White House for the past 8 years, (the jewish lobby being their prompt-box).
…the head of the amrican intelligence Michael McConnel chose to render the intimate aggressive desires of the jewish lobby
Avriani newspaper is not a foreigner to antisemitism: back in 1982 it had another front page accusing “Jews behind the forest fires” since the Zionist plot (sic) was to turn Greece to a new Lebanon, (sounds familiar?). Or back in 1985 it accused former Prime Minister K.Mitsotakis wishing to sell state-owned corporations to Jews, ergo agents of foreign interests.
Let’s set something clear: Avriani is not considered a “serious” newspaper and is not highly considered, even though it enjoyed a wide popularity in the 80′s and is currently among the top-10 newspapers in Greece. Also it is not indicative of the totality of greek Press, which despite the frequent innuendos, does not endorse such extremist words. Many shall argue that what a trash newspaper like Avriani says should not be a major concern and to an extent they are correct. What really troubles me was the whole string of innuendos during this campaign in greek TV and Press that only Avriani was brave or stupid enough to say in clear voice. Maybe other newspapers like top-selling Eleftherotypia would never say it outright, but they have had no problem in the past implying that G.W.Bush was playing ball according the calls of the israeli lobby and that Jews are behind him.
Avriani, in my mind, being faithful to it’s populist tradition simply told it’s readers what they wanted to hear, what they already believed in. Only that it isn’t simply Avriani’s readers who believe in Jewish Domination and US being a puppet state, in the hands of international Judaism; whether it is extreme Right or Left, mainstream political figures or Greek Church Metropolites, US policy appears often to succomb to Jewish desires. Indicative is the extremely popular composer Theodorakis, belonging to the Left, who said that Jews pull the strings of Bush, control the US, the israeli Mossad is responsible for the war in Iraq and many other things that one would expect from a virulent extreme-Right antisemite. Or recently the Metropolite of Piraeus denounced the Jewish Lobby as responsible for pushing for gay rights, (he also considers zionism to be a kind of satanism and thus working to enslave Humanity, so in any case he is not exactly filled with christian love). So I expect raging accusations of censorship by the Jewish/Zionist Lobby over this protest by the American Jewish Comittee, (picked also here and here).
The ease with with these views are uttered, the complete lack of resistance to the spreading of antisemitic libels is what truly bothers me. It is considered common knowledge that Jews exert an extraordinary amount of influence and the jewish religion of someone in a place power is always stressed in meaningful way by all newspapers of every political affiliation, (Protocols of Zion anyone ?).
This is the problem, not Avriani which we can easily dismiss, it is ourselves and our lack of will to push over sterotypes we ourselves endorse as common knowldege and our lack of courage to oppose the promoters of hatred.
