Signs at Athens far-right rally call for opposition to “any Zionist ideology”

Supporters of the Golden Dawn, the far right part in Greece, have been photographed with signs with antisemitic slogans at a rally.

Supporters at the rally in Syntagma Square were photographed with signs urging people to “sign for freedom” and to oppose “any Zionist ideology”.

They contrasted this Zionist ideology with “Greek values”. The idea of Jews or “Zionists” undermining the values or culture of a host nation is a common antisemitic canard, which has unsurprisingly found expression in this group.

In the past, party figures had described Hitler as a “great social reformer” and “military genius” and one of their members quoted the Protocols of the Elders of Zion in the Greek Parliament.
