The Red Terror Has Returned to Greece
In previous decades Greece was plagued by violent Left-wing extremists
Bomb attacks by communist militants and anarchists were frequent
Now the Red Terror has returned to murder Golden Dawn activists.
Three Golden Dawn activists who were guarding the front entrance to the organisations Athens head quarters building were gunned down in a drive-by shooting. Two GD men, one aged 24 years and the other 27 years of age were killed, the third GD man was badly wounded.
This escalation in extreme Left violence against Golden Dawn comes on the heels of a Europe wide campaign against the Greek racial Nationalist movement. Since the end of August British and other European and American anti-fascist and anti-racist organisations have been whipping up hysteria against the Golden Dawn under the guise of a 'Greece Solidarity Campaign'.
This campaign has generated support for pro-communist and Marxist -socialist parties in Greece and has incited Greek leftists to 'Smash the Golden Dawn'.
The Greek government is complicit in this escalation because of its crude attempts to criminalise Golden Dawn and its leadership on politically manipulated arrests and false charges.
The Greek government has provided a justification for the Left by staging the high profile arrests of Golden Dawn MP's and leaders in September - a carefully calculated piece of political theatre.
Across Europe the internationalists and globalists are afraid of the appeal of Golden Dawn to the Greek public and the bureaucrats of the European Union have worked behind the scenes to undermine Golden Dawn and to incite the Greek government to destroy the movement.
Last year the extreme Left in Greece tried to disrupt Golden Dawn's political campaign in the elections by fire-bombing the Golden Dawn election headquarters.
Now, encouraged by calls from anti-racist groups across Europe and in the UK, the Greek militant anti-fascists have stepped up the violence - a double murder.
