US Embassy, Athens Warns Of Rise In 'Unprovoked' Racist Attacks

Tyler Durden's picture

With over 10% of the Greek population polling in favor of the neo-nazi Golden Dawn party, it is hardly surprising but today's acknowledgement by the US Embassy in Athens of

"a rise in unprovoked harassment and violent attacks against persons who, because of their complexion, are perceived to be foreign migrants. U.S. citizens most at risk are those of African, Asian, Hispanic, or Middle Eastern descent in Athens and other major cities"

certainly makes it a little more real for us sitting across the pond from this inferno.

Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Safety and Security in Greece


November 16, 2012


The U.S. Embassy informs U.S. citizens that the “Threats To Safety and Security” section of the Greece Country Specific Information page has been updated to inform U.S. citizens of a rise in unprovoked harassment and violent attacks against persons who, because of their complexion, are perceived to be foreign migrants. U.S. citizens most at risk are those of African, Asian, Hispanic, or Middle Eastern descent in Athens and other major cities. Please review the Country Specific Information for Greece.


We encourage all U.S. citizens to review their personal security plans; remain aware of their surroundings, including local events; monitor local news stations for updates; and report specific incidences of targeted violence to the U.S. Embassy in Athens or the U. S. Consulate General in Thessaloniki at the numbers below. U.S. citizens should maintain a high level of vigilance and take appropriate steps to enhance their personal security. For additional information, please refer to "A Safe Trip Abroad."


U.S. citizens traveling to or residing in Greece are encouraged to enroll in the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program. By enrolling, U.S. citizens make it easier for the Embassy or nearest Consulate to contact them in the case of an emergency. U.S. citizens without Internet access may register directly with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate.


Up-to-date information on security can also be obtained by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll free in the United States and Canada or, for callers outside the United States and Canada, a regular toll line at 1-202-501-4444. These numbers are available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday (except U.S. federal holidays)...

UPDATE: Greek Foreign Minister says "Greece was and remains a safe place... Isolated incidents of racist violence have been foreign to the Greeks, to our culture and its long tradition of Greek hospitality [and takes] a
policy of zero tolerance to these events and take all necessary measures to prevent and suppress such behavior"

Wow, getting pretty crazy out there.

Thankfully, we have Eric Holder to make sure that racism does not run amok here in this country.

Da Jooz oppose all nationalist programmes because nationalists are the only ones who can defeat Jews in their domination of a nation state. From the end of the first world war up to 1933 Jews dominated academia, the stock market (the entire board of the Berlin bourse, business and banking. They even represented 8% of all actors in Germany! Because the Germans, at that time, were a homogeneus people they were able to club together send the Jews to camps (holiday camps compared to Gaza).

Since that time, the Jew came up with the notion of mass immigration, multiculturalism, political correctness (see Professor Kevin MacDonald's videos on youtube to learn more). Now we have mixed white countries (and only white countries have been targetted for mass immigration). People are less able to club together and oppose Jewish domination of the banks, business, big pharma, agro, and pretty much every other sphere.

Golden Dawn want Greece for the Greek people. They don't want to be dominated by rootless cosmopolitans. They don't want their ability to resist dangerous parasites (to wit the Jews) to be compramised by being flooded with other foreigners. GD are a great party. I guess Tyler opposes them because he is (said to be) Jewish.

The KKK in Athens......who are we suppose to hate again?

Ginsengbull's picture

The word kuklos is a Greek word, meaning circle.


Tell me a hate group, any hate group, and I show you how their name is derived from Greek.

"who, because of their complexion, are perceived to be foreign migrants. U.S. citizens most at risk are those of African, Asian, Hispanic, or Middle Eastern descent"

WTF?  You mean as opposed to all those pale skinned unswarthy creamy white straight blonde haired unhairy Greeks?

Like Who the Fuck thinks this shit up?


Ginsengbull's picture

The stories are just a catalyst.


I get more real information from the commentary.

YuropeanImbecille's picture

They should club these fucking immigrants. What right do these 3rd world rats have to come to our civilized countries and eat of our fucking pies?


But the big threat has and always will be the jewish bankers who caused WW1 then WW2 and now soon WW3. Too bad the real sheeple or goyim do not understand this basic fact.

The occupy movement even wants to tax the middle class to peddle more gold into the jews hand.


check this antisemitic video: reminds us of todays situation or not?

What does this have to do with Greece, you stupid partisan cunt?

if things continue to worsen in Greece it might soon look like the U.S. over there. God beware!

The US posturing on this matter is really quite funny, given that it routinely beats, tasers, and imprisons more people than just about any other democratic nation on the planet both in numbers and percentages.

The homicide rate in Greece is 1.5 per thousand and in the USA it's 4.2 per thousand or almost 3 times the rate. So I think the USA would do well to issue a warning to her own people when they return from holidays in Greece that they are now faced with greater danger than they were in Greece.

The incarceration rate in America seemed to rise in lockstep with the expansion of certain parts of our society. There may be a reason.

Not everything can be explained by sending all these poor people to jail for minor offenses.

if things continue to worsen in Greece it might one day look like the U.S. over there. God beware!

The State has no one to blame but itself. Don't like Nazi's? Then stop confiscating everyone's wealth and giving Nazi's reason to rise. The Greek Statists need to be culled and I can't think of a kinder group than the Nazi's to do it.

They are just mad about some video. "Zorba the Greek" I think.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding?

Or maybe they are confused about Get Him to the Greek with that idiot Russell Brand.

Clearly there's a video behind this.

I do not consider this racism, although, it looks that way.   I believe this is cultural tribalism.  The Greek people who are unemployed are tired of recent immigrants (who've come through the doors via EU provisions) taking Greek jobs.   Those immigrants happen to have different complexions, but the complexion itself is not the root of the problem.  It is only an indicator.

Societies survive, because of the protection of the tribe.  What defines who is in, and who is out of the tribe becomes the friction points within our society.   

Expect these friction points to be replicated around the globe as the breaking points near.  They to, will carry the labels of racism.

Don't give them a pass just because they're feriners.


If an American hates someone who takes his job, or scams the system, they're a racist, dagnabit.

Vigilante's picture

Listen bitches....

I am Greek...

The minorities that are targeted are Moo-sleems (Pakis,Banglas,some arabs) and occasionally Africans.

...but the main thrust is against Moo-sleems...

Greece was occupied  for 400 years by Muslims.

Even today it's regularly being threatened by Turkey (of thanksgiving fame)

We know the 'benefits' that Islam brings..

Obviously the crisis makes people look for scapegoats but we certainly don't like Mohamedans even in the good times

How is the anti-US military coming along, esp in Crete?


Mate of mine just bought a holiday house in Paros, do you reckon it is a good time to buy>  Safe for westerners?

Tango in the Blight's picture

Paros is a quiet little island so he'll probably be safe there. The attacks against foreigners mainly happen in cities.

Boeing Boy's picture

Any serious talk yet of civil war in greece?  Is the military still supremely powerful and willing politically to take over?

Ginsengbull's picture

They're still getting paid.

Also, The U.N. just raised tensions in the Balkans between Serbs and Croats by overturning the criminal charges against two Croat generals during the 90's balkan war.


Wait until the two sides meet for the upcoming world cup qualifier in they are in the same group.

As a matter of fact, it was a football match between them in the 90's that basically setoff the war.


Nothing new under the sun,

History is repeating itself.

Ginsengbull's picture

What set off the war was George HW Bush, urging all communist countries to hold referendums, and vote for independence, and America would support them.


He meant the Baltics, not the Balkans.

A symptom of a society beholden to rapacious financial overlords and politicians representing a system that supercedes sovereignty and has benefitted from the one-sided coin of leverage and consumption.

Meantime, back in the USA:

The city of Camden marked its 59th homicide today — an all-time high, according to the Courier-Post.

.....if you're lucky.

mumcard's picture

Nah, they do a lot of shooting, but not a lot of killing.  They really need to work on their skills.

mumcard's picture

The previous high mark for homicides was 58, set in 1995.

The record was tied a week ago when a Cherry Hill mad (sic) died after being beaten. The man, Gregory Holder, 45, was attacked on Broadway and Berkley streets, police said.


He mad.  Didn't they just get rid of all the cops up there in one of those Jersey cities?  Newark?

mumcard's picture

Oh come on, Newark is already north of 70 murders and projected to hit 90 before the end of the year.  These guys aren't even trying.  Strive to be number one baby.
