In the middle of the war in the Middle East and the battles of the Israeli Army with "Hamas", the ambassador of Israel in Greece, Noam Katz, talks about everything to "PARAPOLITIKA" and to the journalist Lambros Kalarytis, without twists, with a straight and clear reason.
Referring to the goals that must be achieved, Israel's ambassador to Greece speaks of a complex civil war, pointing out that "the linear goal is to destroy Hamas."
Mr. Katz characterizes Iran as the head of the octopus and the Houthis, Hamas, Hezbollah, and Shia militias as its tentacles.
The honorary president of the Israelite Community of Athens and former president of the KISE Beniamin Albalas sent the following letter to the newspaper "Kathimerini" about the Palestinian flags in Syntagma Square at the event of the Municipality of Athens to celebrate the new year.
Along with my best wishes for you and Kathimerini for the New Year, I would like to comment, through your welcoming column, on the indecency and lack of respect on New Year's Eve by ERT1, the artists and the new Mayor of Athens in farewell event of 2023 and welcome of 2024 at Syntagma Square!
At the concert of the Municipality of Athens, which was broadcast live by ERT1 and edited by the renowned songwriter Mr. Nikos Portokaloglou, they appeared, shortly before the change of time, waving for
impression, 10-15 flags of Palestine and indeed from the first rows of the spectators, so that they can be clearly distinguished from the platform and the podium of the artists and the television!!
No reaction, not even a polite recommendation to take down the flags.
Complete silence from the organizers, Mr. Portokaloglou, the pair of presenters and especially from Mr. Mayor of Athens in his first official public appearance!!!
They thought, all of the above, that they were participating in a musical event of protest by party or trade union bodies in front of the Israeli embassy and not a breath away from the Monument to the Unknown Soldier and the Hellenic Parliament in an event of joy and hope for all Athenians, for all the greeks?
I felt strange and wondered what grumbling and bitter and ironic comments would be made if 10-15 people were waving blue and white flags at the same time and place.
Unfortunately those in charge, official and semi-official, appeared below the circumstances with an impressive lack of boldness, I would like to believe, which is not befitting of public figures, unless they wanted to kick the left!!
Dr. Benjamin Albalas
On the occasion of the completion of 100 days since the beginning of the war between Israel and Hamas, the Ambassador of Israel, Noam Katz, writes in protothema.gr that "our unwavering determination stems from the understanding that victory is the only option".
Mr. Katz notes, among other things, that “this war is not just Israel's fight – it is a global battle against extremism and terrorism that threatens the entire Middle East and the world. Israel's democracy will prevail, as a beacon of resilience, strength and hope in the face of adversity."
A hundred days have passed since "Black Saturday" of October 7 2023, the day thousands of terrorists from the Gaza Strip invaded the towns and villages of Southern Israel. One hundred days have passed and Hamas is still holding 136 Israelis hostage, infants, men and women of all ages.
One hundred days have passed and their fate is unknown, since the International Red Cross is unable to gain any access to check their health status. A hundred days have passed, Israel is accused by South Africa, before him International Court of Justice in The Hague for committing genocide against the Palestinians. A hundred days have passed, Israel is demonized and the Jews they were again targeted at Europe and America.
