Griechenland fordert weiter Reparationen von Berlin. -Die Besatzungsmacht nahm bei der griechischen Zentralbank einen Zwangskredit auf

Griechenland hält an den Entschädigungsforderungen fest, die Deutschland wegen im Zweiten Weltkrieg verübten Nazi-Gräuel zahlen soll. Das habe aber nichts mit der Finanzkrise des Landes zu tun.

Griechenland hält seine Entschädigungsforderungen an Deutschland wegen der während des Zweiten Weltkriegs verübten Nazi-Gräuel aufrecht. Die halbamtliche Nachrichtenagentur ANA zitierte den stellvertretenden Außenminister Dimitris Kourkoulas am Freitag mit den Worten, Außenminister Evangelos Venizelos habe darüber in den vergangenen Monaten beziehungsweise Wochen in Athen mit seinen Kollegen Guido Westerwelle (FDP) und Frank-Walter Steinmeier (SPD) gesprochen.

Griechenland EU-Ratspräsident: Bettler auf dem Thron. -Griechenland ist für sechs Monate Chef im Ring der EU. Als Ratspräsident bestimmt der Sanierungsfall die Tagesordnung Europas. Das wird schon klappen, meinen die Griechen.

Griechenland steckt immer noch in einer tiefen Wirtschaftskrise. Die Arbeitslosigkeit liegt mit 27 Prozent auf negativem Rekordniveau. Steuern steigen. Öffentliche Ausgaben sinken. Hunderte Milliarden Euro an Schulden drücken. Nur ganz langsam bessert sich die Lage, die der griechische Parlamentsabgeordnete Konstantinos Karagkounis als "humanitäre Katastrophe" ansieht. Karagkounis, der der konservativen Partei von Regierungschef Antonis Samaras angehört, sagte bei einem Besuch in Brüssel, trotz leicht nach oben gehender Indikatoren sei die Situation der normalen Griechen einfach desaströs. "Wir müssen mit einer sehr schwierigen Situation fertig werden. Die griechische Präsidentschaft muss große Herausforderungen meistern." Europas ärgster Sanierungsfall übernimmt am 1. Januar 2014 nach einem schon vor Jahren festgelegten Turnus die Ratspräsidentschaft der EU. Die griechische Regierung muss hunderte Sitzungen leiten, komplexe Verhandlungen führen und 13 Ministerräte in Athen veranstalten.

«Oποιος δεν θέλει να θυμάται...»

Ρένα Δούρου, Βουλευτής ΣΥΡΙΖΑ
Ως μη όφειλε, καθότι αναρμόδιος (υπουργός Οικονομικών γαρ, και όχι Εξωτερικών), ο Βόλφγκανγκ Σόιμπλε την περασμένη εβδομάδα αποφάσισε να παρέμβει στο θέμα των οφειλών της Γερμανίας προς τη χώρα μας από την περίοδο της ναζιστικής κατοχής. Από το κατηγορηματικό ύφος της δήλωσής του ήταν φανερό ότι ο υπουργός είχε αποφασίσει να «βάλει τα πράγματα στη θέση τους». Ωστόσο, εντέλει, η δήλωσή του, που καταδικάστηκε από σύσσωμο το πολιτικό φάσμα, λειτούργησε ως μπούμερανγκ. Εφερε στο προσκήνιο και το σημερινό πρόβλημα της Ευρώπης. Αυτό της λήθης.
Γιατί δεν πρέπει να ξεχνάει κανείς ότι, πέρα από τον άνθρακα και τον χάλυβα, συνδετικός κρίκος του ευρωπαϊκού εγχειρήματος, κατά τη δεκαετία του 1950, ήταν και ο αντιφασιστικός αγώνας και η καταπολέμηση των εθνικισμών. Ο αγώνας αυτός αφορούσε και στις ιστορικές και απαράγραπτες ευθύνες της Γερμανίας.

‘The West is looking for an excuse to attack Syria, but Assad is not giving one’

The Turkish interception of a Syrian civilian jet heading to Damascus from Moscow was yet another attempt to provoke Assad to give the West a reason to strike Syria, Sibel Edmonds of the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition told RT.
­RT: There are lots of ways of smuggling weapons – why would Russia even try to send arms into Syria on a commercial flight?
Sibel Edmonds: Look, we started reporting on the preparation by US and NATO and their Turkish partners in southern Turkey starting in May 2011. You are looking at 16 or 17 months ago, the United States, with their base in Turkey, started preparations for war against Syria.

Greece, Germany and the complex issue of war reparations

John P. Anton describes the atrocities of the German occupation in Greece during WWII and underlines the lasting effect this has had on the Hellenic nation
Considerable discussion has been generated recently concerning the problem of war reparations with regard to the destruction the German armies inflicted during WWII on the populations and the lands of the various countries that were occupied. Here we look at the special case of Greece. The Germans occupied Greece from April 1941 to October 1944.
I am not so much concerned with the ongoing legal disputes surrounding the unresolved issue about the war reparations that Germany still owes Greece. Rather, my interest is related to an unacknowledged and serious part of the damages that the German occupation brought upon the country as a result of the brief yet catastrophic presence of Hitler's armies in the land.
More precisely, I am raising the broader issue about the breadth of the catastrophes the German occupation forces brought to the status of Greece's culture, beyond the already listed types of damage to the land, the people, and the official institutions of the country.
