Parties condemn leader’s fascist salute to youth

Political parties expressed outrage on Monday after the head of the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn, Nikos Michaloliakos (photo), performed a fascist salute during a speech to young supporters in Goudi, eastern Athens.

Manolis Kefaloyiannis of conservative New Democracy accused Golden Dawn of “trying to present the fascist tragedy of the country when it was under occupation as a fascist comedy.”

PASOK accused Michaloliakos of “exploiting the crisis and promising a Greece made of the stuff that led Europe to disaster.”

In his speech, Michaloliakos had said “some party members may greet like this but their hands are clean and they have not stolen.”

In a related development, an Orthodox bishop has received threatening phone calls after condemning Golden Dawn. Vergers at his church in Western Macedonia claim to have reported receiving several calls after Metropolitan Pavlos of Sissanion and Siatista called the party “uncivilized.”
