Everyday Antisemitism

Antisemitic conspiracy theories on Greek national television

Dimos Verykios, a Greek journalist recently made antisemitic comments during a show on national Greek television. In his statement he submitted that the Jews are in control of the world’s wealth, principally through one ‘centre’ and further highlighted another two mechanisms of control related to this.

‘One centre is the banks, the global banking system. Through this banking system, two main centres are ruling the game. One of these centres is the Jewish lobby, powerful, extremely powerful in America and elsewhere! In all big deals, one will meet a Jew! Or a mason!”

Verykios took to twitter to deny any allegations of antisemitism, stating that he had merely proclaimed the truth: “The world’s money is owned by the banks-Jews-Masons.”

According to the International Definition of Antisemitism, “the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions” is antisemitic.
