NEW YORK—The Cyprus Action Network of America (CANA) encourages the distribution of the below links and text in memory of THE GREAT HELLENES and HELLENIC HEROES young Solomos Solomou who was killed by Turks, and Cypriot leader Tassos Papadopoulos whose bodily remains were recently desecrated by Turks. We hope that the coming New Year brings a surge of HELLENIC HEROES to inspire our epic people to rise up and vanquish forever the barbarians who oppress The Great Island of Cyprus.

Monday, 28 December 2009. Turks to blame for theft of Tassos' corpse written by Hellenic Antidote.

Discussion – in Greek – between Giorgos Karabelias and Dimitris Alevromageiros.

It's been three weeks now since the theft of the body of former President Tassos Papadopoulos from his grave in a Nicosia cemetery. From the very first minute, I believed that the crime was committed by Turks, by members of the Turkish secret services and deep state, who have a significant presence and safe-haven in occupied Cyprus. My theory was that Turks did it both as an act of revenge against Papadopoulos – who they regard as a Turk-hater and one of the men responsible for putting down the Turkish Cypriot rebellion in 1963, aimed at bringing down the Republic of Cyprus and inducing partition – and as a means to humiliate the Republic of Cyprus and damage the morale of Greek Cypriots generally, by defiling the remains of the man who led them in rejecting the Annan plan and resisting the machinations of nefarious foreign interests.

This is also the view expressed in the discussion above – in Greek – between Giorgos Karabelias and Dimitris Alevromageiros, which also touches on how foreign interests are seeking to exploit Greece's debt crisis to encroach on Greek national sovereignty and force Greece to fall into line with their plans for the Balkans, the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean; the heroism of the Cypriot patriot Solomos Solomou (See URL: http://hellenicantidote.blogspot.com/2009/02/murders-of-tassos-isaac-and-solomos.html ) ; and the continuing attempt by self-loathing Greeks to rewrite modern Greek history and turn Greece from a nation of heroes into one of slaves.

And below is the song Karabelias refers to by Notis Sfakianakis on Solomos Solomou.

Η δολοφονία του μέλλοντος. Γυναίκες και παιδιά θύματα της Γενοκτονίας των Ελλήνων από τους Τούρκους.

By Φάνης Μαλκίδης

Εισήγηση στο «Ανοιχτό Πανεπιστήμιο» του Δήμου Ασπροπύργου. Ασπρόπυργος Αττικής Δεκέμβριος 2009.

Οι διωγμοί των Ελλήνων, οι οποίοι μέσα εξελίχθηκαν σε γενοκτονία, αποτέλεσαν μία από τις τραγικότερες σελίδες της ζωής του Ελληνισμού. Η απώλεια 1.000.000 Ελλήνων, και η προσφυγιά 1.200.000 είναι ο απολογισμός. Τα εκατοντάδες χιλιάδες θύματα του μαζικού εγκλήματος, μαζί με τα ορφανά που δημιούργησε, αποτέλεσαν τις σημαντικότερες πληγές στην κοινωνική ζωή του Ελληνισμού. Ιδιαίτερη θέση σ΄ αυτήν την περίοδο κρατούν οι γυναίκες και τα παιδιά, τα οποία αποτέλεσαν αφενός συγκεκριμένο στόχο του προμελετημένου εγκλήματος, λόγω του ειδικού τους βάρους στην κοινωνία και την οικογένεια, αφετέρου ήταν αποδέκτες όλων των επιπτώσεων της γενοκτονίας (χηρεία, προσφυγιά, βιασμός, ορφάνια, ψυχολογικά προβλήματα κ.ά).

Μετά τη δολοφονία των ανδρών, οι γυναίκες απετέλεσαν το κομμάτι εκείνο του πληθυσμού, πάνω στο οποίο κάθε χτύπημα θα επέφερε σημαντικό πλήγμα συνολικά στον Ελληνισμό. Η γυναίκα είναι η πηγή της ζωής, κάθε δολοφονία στερούσε από τον Ελληνισμό τη βιολογική του συνέχεια. Όπου δεν μπορούσε να γίνει αυτό, υπήρχε ο βιασμός και η μητρότητα και η οικογένεια, οι καρποί δηλαδή της αγάπης, του έρωτα, των πιο ωραίων ανθρώπινων συναισθημάτων, μετατρεπόταν σε ανεπιθύμητη εγκυμοσύνη, σε υπενθύμιση του εγκλήματος για την υπόλοιπη ζωή. Παράλληλα υπήρχε ο βιασμός των εγκύων και μετέπειτα η δολοφονία μητέρας και εμβρύου.

Μέσα από τους βιασμούς και τις αρπαγές επιδιώχθηκε η ταπείνωση, ο εξευτελισμός και η ατίμωση ολόκληρης της ομάδας, έγινε προσπάθεια να την τρομοκρατήσουν με απώτερο στόχο να εμποδίσουν μια πολιτισμένη και οικογενειακή οργάνωση της κοινωνίας του Ελληνισμού. Έτσι στόχος γίνεται η οικογένεια ως θεμέλιο της κοινωνικής οργάνωσης αλλά και ως πυρήνας της βιολογικής συνέχειας της ελληνικής εθνικής ομάδας. Χωρίς οικογένεια και γυναίκα δεν υπάρχει εθνική συνέχεια, δεν υπάρχει έθνος.

Επίσης, σημειώθηκε ο εγκλεισμός χιλιάδων γυναικών σε τουρκικά σπίτια. Άλλες γυναίκες προτίμησαν να πέσουν μαζί με τα παιδιά τους, κατά το πρότυπο του Ζαλόγγου το Δεκέμβριο του 1803, σε γκρεμούς για να μην πιαστούν, ενώ άλλες αναγκάστηκαν να παραδώσουν στους Έλληνες αντάρτες, ειδικά στον Πόντο τα βρέφη τους ώστε το κλάμα τους να μη τους προδώσει στους διώκτες τους. (Σάντα).

Παράλληλα υπήρξε μία ομάδα γυναικών και παιδιών η οποία έχασε τη θρησκευτική και εθνική της ταυτότητα και οδηγήθηκε για πάντα στο σκοτάδι της άγνοιας της καταγωγής και της προέλευσης.

Στις περισσότερες από αυτές τις γυναίκες και τα παιδιά, είχαν κλονισμό της ψυχικής τους υγείας, αφού επέζησαν των βιαιοτήτων και των σφαγών εκδηλώνονταν αργότερα το σύνδρομο και η ενοχή του διασωθέντα. Η σκέψη τους και η μνήμη τους σταμάτησε στα γεγονότα των διωγμών και των σφαγών, ανέπτυξαν ένα ιδιαίτερο ψυχισμό.

Ο επίλογος της μαζικής δολοφονίας, εξευτελισμού, εξανδραποδισμού, χειραγώγησης των γυναικών και των ορφανών γράφτηκε στην Ελλάδα και σε άλλα μέρη της προσφυγιάς. Εκεί αποτυπώθηκε το δράμα και μάλιστα αποτυπώθηκε και στα μνημεία για τη Γενοκτονία, όπως αυτό που βρίσκεται στον Ασπρόπυργο.

Είναι γεγονός ότι παράλληλα με τη Γενοκτονία, τελέσθηκε και μια Γυναικοκτονία και μία Παιδοκτονία. Η εφαρμογή μιας πολιτικής μαζικής βίας ενάντια στις γυναίκες και τα παιδιά, αποτέλεσε ειδική παράμετρο του μαζικού εγκλήματος και συνιστά την ουσία του αδικήματος της γενοκτονίας, σύμφωνα με τη σχετική σύμβαση του ΟΗΕ.

Η δολοφονία των γυναικών και παιδιών έχει μεγάλο ενδιαφέρον και για μας αποτελεί μία άγνωστη παράμετρο της Γενοκτονίας των Ελλήνων από τους Τούρκους, την οποία οφείλουμε να αναδείξουμε ακόμη περισσότερο τα επόμενα χρόνια. Το ζήτημα έχει συνέχεια και μάλιστα με ολοένα και περισσότερα στοιχεία.

EU Membership for Skopje postponed over Macedonian name dispute

According to Bulgaria’s largest English-language news provider, Sofia News Agency, “The EU has decided to postpone announcing a date for the start of the accession talks of FYROM through a compromise designed to avoid a Greek veto over the so called name dispute”, despite pressure from Brussels to open accession talks. This decision has allowed for the postponement of the issue of Skopje’s membership until the upcoming Spanish EU presidency in 2010. In an act of solidarity, France officially supported Greece on the fact that only when a solution to the name issue is found, should negotiations with Skopje open on EU membership.

Macedonist Radicals in Skopje such as Prime Minister, Nikola Gruevski, reacted to the EU’s decision by saying, “Greece has already done a big political damage and history will prove this. But we will not be broken by injustice”. President Gorge Ivanov joined Gruevski by launching a verbal attack on the EU for its decision saying, “We will not cave under any pressure to change our name or identity just to be a part of the European Union”. President Ivanov would go on to say that, “We have a European perspective that will be achieved together, with the support of all ethnic and religious communities, all parties and all citizens of FYROM”

President Ivanov’s call of unity amongst citizens, came at the same time that opposition parties in Skopje ‘accused the government of not putting enough effort into resolving the name dispute, thus missing a chance at the Brussels meeting to remove the final obstacle to the Country’s two strategic goals, the EU and NATO membership’, as reported by the official Chinese press agency, Xinhua. Adding to President Ivanov’s detachment from reality came from Menduh Thaci, leader of the Democratic Party of Albanians. The Sofia News Agency announced the Thaci had released a statement on Alsat, the Albanian TV station from Skopje saying, “If the agreement that was developed by the DPA is not confirmed between Slavs and Albanians, there will be neither a Macedonian nation nor a Macedonian people”. The article continued to state that “according to Thaci, if discrimination against young Albanians continues in the Skopje, there is a distinct possibility of renewed conflict between Albanians and Slavs”.

When asked about the ongoing name dispute, Thaci commented on the Slavs identity saying that, ‘if their most recent history is removed, they will identify themselves as either Bulgarians or Serbs”. He went on the state the only future Skopje has is as a ‘multi-national state’. Confirming that the only real solution to the issue of FYROM remains the same 3 legitimate proposals that have existed since 1991, (a) the acceptance by Macedonist of the Hellenic character of Macedonia and adoption of Hellenism, (b) the acceptance of a name without the word Macedonia, instead accepting a name better fit to describe the multi-ethnic nature of the republic or (c) the dismemberment of Skopje between Albania, Bulgaria and Greece.

Anarchists mark the December 6th anniversary of the death of Alexis Grigoropoulos

We’ve returned to the scene of a tragedy. In what could have been conceived as a noble attempt by the youth of a nation to remember the unfortunate loss of one of their own, a 15 yr old boy, has instead turned into yet another tool for foreign ideologies to turn our motherland into a battlefield. Foreign Nationals have entered our sovereign state with the intention of causing civil unrest. These anarchists have come from Turkey, France, Germany, Italy and even Albania with the intention of creating anarchy inside our motherland, turning young Alexis Grigoropoulos into a martyr for their cause and exploiting the death of this young Hellene so as to manipulate the youth in hopes of undermining the Hellenic state.

In a recent article found on the World Socialist Web Site written by Markus Salzmann entitled, Police attack protesters in Greece, we are told just why the youth in Hellas are so easily manipulate by the only advocates for change on the ground.

“The broader background was the deterioration of conditions for students and lack of decent-paying jobs for hundreds of thousands of workers and young people, exacerbated by the rule of a political elite characterized by corruption and nepotism”

It is the youth, mostly high-school students, who are being manipulated to vent their frustrations by attacking police and even innocent civilians. Their intentions are noble, in that they wish to smash the corrupt Abrahamic system which breeds nepotism, but their actions are misguided and used as a tool for foreign interests. What is the point of destroying bus stops and telephone booths? How are you fighting the noble fight by destroying the storefronts of fellow Hellenes? Where is the honor and respect for your ancestors when you leave holy Athens in ruins for the amusement of foreign nationals! Are we to truly believe that this outrageous behavior is the voice of the people? When children of the elite are found by police in an anarchist clubs manufacturing explosives?

The most disturbing report of this year’s riots came from AHN Editor Ayinde Chase in an article entitled Greece: Violence, Anarchists Mark Anniversary of Teen’s Death from Police Shooting;

“On Sunday Anarchists broke into a building at Athens University and tore down the Greek flag and replaced it with the red and black anarchist banner. During the attack the Dean of the university suffered massive head injuries and is currently listed in critical condition”

This single act of vandalism was not only an attack on our flag, but also an attack on our ancestors, our heritage, and the very core principles of Hellenism. To hold the scared halls of a university hostage and assault an innocent man who has pledged himself to uphold one of our greatest traditions is nothing short of treason. To tear down our national flag and replace it with the red and black banner of anarchy is equivalent to spitting in the face of Kolokotronis himself! Is this the change Papandreou spoke of when he rallied support to beat Karamanlis? A Hellas where our national flag can be ripped down and twelve-year old children can run amuck? Where foreign nationals are allowed to destroy our country and turn our youth against their own kind?

A revolution is brewing within the borders of Hellenic state, and unless a patriotic voice rises from the chaos with a legitimate plan of action to battle the corruption which taints our motherland, a solid plan to solve the economic crisis which threats our credit score and a strategy to raise the annual budget on education, this revolutionary inevitability will be easily harnessed by spoiled brats, hooligans, and illegal foreigners to poison our nation and establish a false sense of democratic change.

Open the Temples

My most recent class in graduate school, Economic Analysis, has gotten me to ponder the question of just what the benefits maybe for Hellas (Greece) if the government in Athens were to reopen our ancient temples. I wonder if anyone has ever done the research to see just what the economic benefit of such a project may be. During these hard economic times any and all ideas, at least in my opinion, should be openly discussed and debated. It is because of this belief that I felt it may be interesting to blog about this question and see what type of reaction, if any occurs. I must confess I am by no means an economist and am very uncomfortable with the topic in general. However, for the sake of argument I’ve decide to dabble in it just this once.

Just what kind of positive economic or social benefits could be achieved if the Hellenic government was so bold as to reopen our ancient temples? Well for starters it would mean jobs, perhaps even government jobs, which are always fondly accepted in Hellas. Such a project would have to employ a large number of skilled workers to help in the reconstruction and continued preservation of such sites across the country. The ancient Thracian capital of Seuthopolis is a perfect example of World Heritage Site being reconstructed and preserved. Next, such a project would also provide employment opportunities for individuals educated in social sciences to staff these locations with not only employees to handle tourists, but also employees equipped with the necessary skills to run these facilities, something which could lead to a miniature renaissance for ancient Hellenic studies. Another benefit would be that by reopening the temples, Hellas could establish itself as a spiritual homeland and attraction for spiritual tourists. I dare to even believe such a national project could boost national pride across the country.

Now I understand this may sound ‘crazy’, it may not even be very realistic. Like I said previously, I am not an economist. I merely hope to spark debate and conversation. Who can honestly say they would not like to see the greatest wonders and accomplishments of our ancestors revived to their former glory? Who could be that selfish and ignorant?
