Around 400 supporters of the schismatic Esfigmenou monastery on Mount Athos rallied in Thessaloniki to protest the recent conviction of the monastery prior and another monk to twenty years imprisonment each for construction, possession and usage of Molotov cocktails during an eviction of the order’s administrative offices in 2013.

The protesters displayed a huge antisemitic banner reading “Judeo-Masonry wages war on Greece and Orthodoxy.” [see photo below]

Earlier this month, protesters (zealots, football fans and Nazis) gathered outside Parliament in Athens to decry the conviction of the zealot monks chanting “Hands off the Orthodoxy” and “Jews out of Parliament.” [watch video below, 0’18’’] Golden Dawn MP Giannis Lagos was also part of the rally.

During a rally that took place at Athens’s Propylaia in February 2016, the excommunicated abbot of Esfigmenou monastery warned the Jews of a “Greek Hitler” that might come.

    The Greek Orthodox Church blessing the neo-Nazis
    Posted on 20/06/2012

    A church that has often been accused of financial and sexual scandals which a few years back in 2005, drew international attention. This same church offered its blessings at Golden Dawn’s offices. At least four dioceses (Chalkis Mesogaias, Korinthias, Patras) in towns such as Chalkis (9/25/2011), Loutsa (11/20/2011), Nemea (4/1/2012), Kato Axaya (4/29/2012) respectively received similar orthodox blessings too…

    The high electoral score of the Golden Dawn in the Greek Parliament, after May 2012 elections, attracted the interest of the President of European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso who «…warned that the EU Commission “will not hesitate to use all mechanisms available to act against those who insult community law and the fundamental human rights charter».

    The Orthodox Church of Greece, is a Church which has been justly accused for its close ties with the former military Junta regime (1967-1974), an official national-state church institution that defiantly surpasses Greek legislation, and often incites ethnic hatred against people of neighbour states, despite the fact that they are Christian orthodox themselves, as those of former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. A church that has often been accused of financial and sexual scandals which a few years back in 2005, drew international attention.
