JNS.org – Greek Defense Minister Panos Kammenos has asked the country’s Justice Ministry to take action against a lawmaker who made anti-Israel comments in Greece’s parliament earlier this week.

Christos Pappas, a member of the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party, called Israel an “eternal enemy of Greece and [Christian] Orthodoxy” during a debate on the ratification of Greece’s international agreements with other countries, according to the Kathimerini newspaper.

“The State of Israel implements genocidal methods and is a regional troublemaker,” Pappas said, asking how “a state like Israel could possibly have relations with Greece, which is the cradle of civilization and humanism.”

    The world is Israel’s enemy all the way back to the Babylon, Persian, Roman etc. Not only ancient kingdoms but modern countries have tried to exterminate them. Lies, lies, and more lies have been spread around the world.
    Wait until you meet the Creator at the Judgement Seat, what answer will you give for hating the Jews? If you are Christian, look it up. The Christians have done their share of trying to get rid of the Jews, remember you would have no Salvation without them.
