Greece Rocked by Night of Riots After Anti-Fascist Rapper Was Stabbed to Death by Member of Far-Right Party Golden Dawn

Lizzie Edmonds, Daily Mail (London), September 19, 2013

Violent clashes broke out in several Greek cities last night after an anti-fascist activist and musician was stabbed to death by a man claiming to be a member of far-right Golden Dawn party.

Pavlos Fyssas, 34, a hip-hop singer whose stage name was Killah P, died in a state hospital in the early hours of Wednesday morning after being stabbed twice outside a cafe in the Keratsini area west of Athens.

Yesterday, a 45-year-old man was arrested at the scene. He admitted attacking Fyssas and said he belonged to Golden Dawn. A knife with traces of blood was found near his car.

Golden Dawn leader Nicholas Michaloliakos says the group had nothing to do with the attack.

Clashes broke out on Wednesday evening in Keratsini and five other cities between riot police and thousands of protesters holding anti-fascist demonstrations in Fyssas’ memory.

Protesters

In Keratsini, violence broke out near the scene of the stabbing, with hundreds of protesters attacking a nearby police station.

The confrontation lasted more than two hours, with riot police using tear gas to repel youths, who set fire to trash bins and smashed up sidewalks with hammers to throw rocks at police.

The clashes left a busy suburban road strewn with rocks and smoldering trash for several hundred meters.

Traffic outside the busy port of Piraeus was disrupted as police cordoned off streets to stop protesters from reaching the area.

Similar scenes played out in Thessaloniki, Greece’s second-largest city, where about 6,000 demonstrators marched.

Greek media also reported violent clashes in the western city of Patras, the northeastern city of Xanthi, the central city of Larissa and in Chania on the southern island of Crete.

Authorities said at least 75 people were detained–41  in Keratsini and 36 in Thessaloniki.

Earlier, friends of the victim and residents left flowers and candles at the spot of the attack, where blood still stained the sidewalk.

The head of a small right-wing opposition party, Panos Kamenos of the Independent Greeks, was briefly assaulted by protesters when he attempted to visit the site.

Deputy Prime Minister Evangelos Venizelos, whose Socialist party is part of the coalition government, said Golden Dawn had ‘violence as its priority and must be dealt with as a criminal organization.’

Hannes Swoboda, president of the Socialists and Democrats Group in the European Parliament, urged Greek authorities to examine banning the party altogether.

He said: ‘Golden Dawn’s openly xenophobic, neo-Nazi hatred even goes as far as murdering political opponents. This is shocking and intolerable by any standards, and more so in a European Union country.’

The rights group Amnesty International called on authorities to prevent any further incidents.

Jezerca Tigani, Amnesty’s deputy Europe and Central Asia program director said: ‘Politically motivated violence of this kind is unacceptable anywhere, and history has shown the grim consequences if it goes unchecked.

‘The Greek authorities must send a clear message that attacks like this will not be tolerated.’

The suspect, who was not named in accordance with Greek law, appeared before a prosecutor Wednesday evening along with his wife, who was also  arrested on suspicion of concealing evidence.

Another couple also appeared in court on similar charges. Five prosecutors have been assigned to the case.

Golden Dawn, whose senior members have expressed admiration for Adolf Hitler although they deny being neo-Nazi, won nearly 7 percent of the vote in 2012 general elections. Recent opinion polls show its support has since risen to around 12 percent.

Party members and supporters, often clearly identifiable in black T-shirts and combat pants, have been suspected of beatings and stabbings across the country, usually of dark-skinned migrants.

In January, two men identified as party sympathizers were arrested for the fatal stabbing of a Pakistani migrant worker.

Golden Dawn has been blamed for numerous violent attacks in the past. However, the stabbing of the young musician is the most serious violence so far, and the first directly attributed to a member.

Public Order Minister Nikos Dendias said: ‘I am shaken by the event. [the attacks] show in the clearest possible way the intentions of the neo-Nazi creation.’

Michaloliakos, the Golden Dawn head, said his party ‘unreservedly condemns the murder of the 34-year-old at Keratsini and denies any involvement of the party.’

He added: ‘All the political parties must assume their responsibilities and not create a climate of civil war, giving a political character to a tragic event.’

Police spokesman Christos Parthenis said the suspect drove to the scene of an altercation between two groups of people, got out of the car and stabbed Fyssas.

Friends of the victim told Greek media they had been attacked by a large group of men as they left the cafe.

Golden Dawn lawmaker Michalis Avranitis offered a different version of events, saying the victim and the suspect had initially argued about a soccer match.

Avranitis said in Parliament: ‘Yes, this man, as it turns out, has declared himself to be a member of Golden Dawn. But Golden Dawn has 1 million supporters.

‘If, in a restaurant, two drunken idiots have a fight and someone is stabbed, should we look at their ideology and blame that’.

    The Greek government, and the Jews in Greece missed their chance to ban Golden Dawn. It is much too strong for that now, and to ban it will only make it much stronger. Moreover, banning a political party that is actually helping ordinary Greeks who are suffering the way the Germans did between WW-1 and the rise of Adolph Hitler will only set the state for a coup, or a civil war. There are many, many members of Golden Dawn among the police and military units. Golden Dawn and it’s message is an idea whose time has come, and no law, army or government can stop an idea whose time has come any more than a seawall can stop a mega-tsunami. To ban this party in the face of record numbers of desperate, ordinary Greeks will most assuredly have the opposite effect than was intended.

        The Greeks are as stupid as we are.

        Seriously? I thought after WW2 there were virtually no Jews left in Greece?

        • Spartacus

          There’s still a couple of them there. And somehow, they’re all politicians, journalists and businessmen .

          • Romulus

            Of course they are, as theyve always been. The four categories that they have controlled since jesus are as follows: the courts, the banks, the media and the arts and sciences.

        For now…………….allegedly.

        • Spartacus

          He was born in New York. He’s a lawyer. And I think either his father or uncle worked for a law firm called Kaminitz Law, but I can’t seem to get any good info on this.

    • Romulus

      It is my belief that you are right. I want it to be more than I can describe in words. My fury at that cabal is unmatched in intensity by any other unit of measure. The destroyers of nations they are. The greeks will exact vengeance upon the “manipulators” The world is growing increasingly weary of their power to control the masses.

    • blight14

      We salute the Golden Dawn!

  • D.B. Cooper

    The first order of business in far right wing parties is to rigorously remind the followers that violent, lawless, acts are what “those” people do; and “not what WE do.”
    If the kooks and crazies are all liberals, then it’s a lot easier to identify hoaxes.

    • David Ashton

      Agree with you, for once. This also applies to us “cowardly” Brits in the multi-racialist police state that has replaced our “free country”

    • Spartacus

      Wrong !

      What they SHOULD tell them is – “If you’re gonna kill them, make sure you get at least a dozen of them” .

      • D.B. Cooper

        Being violent to the liberals only justifies MORE diversity training, Affirmative Action, and asylum visas.
        What exactly have burned crosses and swastikas accomplished in the past 40 years? NOTHING! The end results have actually harmed our cause.
        One fake hate crime is sooo much better.

        • Spartacus

          You’re gonna get MORE diversity training no matter what you do. Better to start butchering them, and hope for the best.

        • John Ulfsson

          No, they’re going to make excuses either way. I don’t think you understand that ‘racism’ is judged on a curve, and the definition of what is ‘racist’ and ‘hateful’ changes year by year. In 1950 beating blacks was racist, and now not wanting to race-mix is racist. When the anti-race-mixers are silenced, they’ll just find new people and new behavior that qualifies ‘racist’.

          The way to win is NOT by appeasing these people.

          • Romulus

            Absolutely. Laws or dictated are nothing more than edicts on paper. They are worthless without enforcement behind them. Which is precisely why each European nation in turn has been disarmed. It is also exactly why the commies are also pushing disarmament here while screaming racist or Nazi at anyone that opposed them and the masses follow suit. We all here should be well aware of alynski tactics, who was of course not German.

          • Sangraal

            That is the essence of ‘anti-racism’. They keep widening the goalposts. Now that we live in a time when hardly any whites express racial bias, because being a ‘racist’ is the worst thing a white person can be, ‘racism’ must be redefined as an absurd original sin of whiteness – enter ‘white privilege’. See the next item on ‘Student Indoctrination’ – this kind of nonsense is the vanguard of the next wave of ‘anti-racism’. For now they are testing it on campuses and the internet, but if it continues to take hold – if we don’t turn the tide – it will soon become mainstream, and kosher conservatives will be lining up to ‘check their privilege’.

    • Sick of it

      The police are becoming increasingly tyrannical in this country precisely because no one will stand up to them when they’re breaking the law.

  • Spartacus

    Where are the protests for Channon Christian ? Or Eva Helgetun? Or Charlene Downes ? Or Emily Haddock? Or Eve Carson ? Or Genelle Conway ? Or Anika Smit ?

    Where are the protests for Adiele and Marley Galbraith ?

  • Jenkem Huffington

    Golden Dawn has freemasonic/Rosicrucian roots. You can follow just about every revolution or war in the last 400 years right into a lodge of some secret mystery-school society. They are also the driving force behind the push towards one world socialist government.

  • dd121

    That guy doesn’t look like Alexander. What happened to the original Greeks?

    • IstvanIN

      He looks like a Turk to me.

    • Spartacus

      Alexander wasn’t Greek, he was Macedonian.

      • dd121

        Back in the day Macedonia was trailer trash Greek. Believe me he was Greek, spoke Greek and was buried like a Greek king in Alexandria.

        • Spartacus

          I’m reasonably certain Macedonians were a different ethnicity than Greeks, even though many of them actually spoke Greek as their native language.

          • jackryanvb

            No, Macedonians were a tougher, mountain branch of Greeks – Amren leaders should be aware of the great prospect of some tough White guy from the provinces coming in to restore order, save the day when racial chaos has taken down the capitals.

            Other tough, related White guys are Napoleon from Corsica, AH from Austria, and in a strange way Stalin from Georgia.

            In the US, we haven’t really had one yet, maybe Andy Jackson from Tennessee. Tough Italians on the lower end of the White racial totem poll have been very good. Philly police Chief/mayor Frank Rizo, Sheriff Joe A. In Arizona

          • Romulus

            Stalin color may have been white but not his ethnicity. He is Jewish. His real last name is Dzurgha, which translated to “son of a Jew” from the dispossessed majority by W. Robertson.

          • How does that explain his studying at an Orthodox seminary when he was young?

          • Romulus

            His religion of upbringing or election would not change his DNA regardless. I haven’t read the passage in awhile, but the fact remains nonetheless. Here in southeastern pa, I met a young man while waiting for public transport who was sporting a famous college logo with a Hebrew inscription beneath it. When I pressed him upon the meaning, he answered that it was the Jewish name equivalent of the logo. So, I, bold as brass informed that he was obviously not ethically Jewish. He retorted that he believes he is because he practices the religion. He was a nordic. I was completely disgusted by the brainwashing he’s obviously been exposed to. So, back to the original statement about Stalin.

          • Romulus

            Is it my imagination or has every comment that I’ve just given on this thread been flagged. As I view the thread, the little flag icon has been changed to an inverted triangle. Can you see this as well on my posts ?

          • alex

            It just happened to my comments too. Do you think Jews are behind it?

          • Romulus

            Nobody could say for certain. All of the sites on disqus are on the $plc ‘s watch list, which is operated by the tribe. The biggest donors to the splc and the top ten that run it are tribe. I also remember a regular poster informing this board of another regular ( who is extraordinarily controversial) who also is a moderator. I could not know that myself. The person in question has written a geust piece for amren just recently. It could be a possibility.

          • alex

            In what language Dzurga means “son of Jew”?

          • Romulus

            If memory serves of Robertson’s description, it is of EASTERN European extraction, precisely which, I would have to refer to either chapters 15 “The Jews” or chapter 33 “The US and the Soviet union.

          • alex

            It’s definitely doesn’t mean “son of Jew” in Russian, Ukrainian, Belorussian, Polish and Georgian.
            What’s the name of the Robertson’s book?

          • Romulus

            The dispossessed majority.

            I am reading the online version of this book right now.

          • alex

            I went quickly through chapter 15 and chapter 33. I haven’t found anything about Stalin’s Jewishness.
            I could’ve missed it.

          • He had jew in him, and many other ethnicities, European and non-European alike.

          • jackryanvb

            Oh shut up.

            Stalin wasn’t in any way Jewish.

            Hey mods, can you step in here?

            It’s a typical troll thing to do to accuse any bad person to be Jewish. Stalin was supposedly Jewish, FDR Jewish, even Hitler Jewish.

            Ridiculous nonsense.

          • He had some jewish ancestry. He was jewish the same way he was Russian. That is, hardly.

          • Romulus

            If im in error of the particular literature, I will admit as such after I research where I read it. You must be new to my comments. For proof that im not a troll, simply read the content of my posts and votes. As a former member of armed service, dear sir, would give my last breath for my people and country. What will you do?

          • jackryanvb

            Tell the truth. Find and help individual good whites. Out traitors , exposé anti White fake hate crimes put out by the MSM, support family owned White businesses, support positive White culture.

          • Romulus

            Always do, within the parameters of my knowledge base. Im actively involved with patriots and veterans. It is my personal belief,….That it is better to go out standing UP, than down on your knees, when the time comes. We’re all gonna go eventually. We still have the option on how we will proceed to such end. For now.
            What I wonder about is if we have the strength of heart and the will. I keep our historical heroes very close to my heart for they imbue the very qualities that instill inspiration and hope. I draw strength from their memory and sacrifice.
            It is a matter of personal pride that I pilgrimage to Gettysburg and Arlington annually and ask myself “why”? I will endeavor to persevere and communicate as often as possible to fight the good fight. Thank you for your input.

          • Stalin was a mongrel, mixed of many races.

          • jackryanvb

            No. Stalin is tough guy Slavic gangster from Georgia, ethnically related to Mother Russia. Stalin even studied for Orthodox priesthood. Stalin stands out as non Jew Communists, Russian nationalists prefer Stalin to Trotsky.

          • He had Russian ancestry, yes. He also had Tatar ancestry, among other things.

          • Romulus

            One does not have to be ethnically tribe to identify as one. A Wog is a wog is a wog. Remember who migrated north from Greece after the collapse of Rome. Surely you know the origin of the word Soviet? It does not come from Russia!

          • alex

            Soviet is a Russian word. I am a native Russian speaker but what do I know.
            Are you gonna tell me that “Soviet” is Hebrew for “kill all gentiles”?

          • Romulus

            *sigh* Funny you should at that as I was wondering the same thing. It’s ultimate derivation is of proto-SLAVIC ORIGIN. A verbal stem of vetiti meaning to talk or speak. The word evolved into it’s current Russian incarnation and has always been demonstrative of communists. The Bolsheviks in this case.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            The Jews sure tried to kill all the Slavs, you know what kind of monsters they were, and still are.

          • He certainly developed a strong hatred for Jews after World War Two was over. He was convinced that Jewish doctors were trying to poison him.

          • Sick of it

            They were a different group, which is why the Greeks banded together against them (though a bit too late after beating each other to death).

  • IstvanIN

    Banning political parties is proof positive that a country is free and democratic.

  • Spartacus

    Because jews.

  • bigone4u

    G-d help us all if an Amren commenter were to commit an act of violence. But the sons of Obama commit horrifying acts of savagery every day, while every institution in society denies the racial motivation. Golden Dawn will survive and thrive because their economy is a mess and because the lies our governments tell us are ultimately confronted by the masses.

      Notice how quickly the story of the Navy Yard shooter was buried? Everyone realized that if Alexis had been white or Asian, with his behaviour he’d never have gotten a security clearance.

      THAT was the real story. Can’t have people discovering that.

  • RisingReich

    I could be wrong, but I think outlawing the party will just serve to recruit more members and escalate these kinds of attacks. Frankly even just the threat of such an attempt will flame its members and probably motivate potential members to get off the fence and join.

    It just reinforces the party’s line – the government has turned against real Greeks.

  • Chris Granzow XI

    If somebody from a certain political party committing a violent crime means that party should be outlawed, then the party of Obama would’ve been disbanded years ago.

    • So a self-impressed wannabe thug picked a fight with the wrong guy. This – and the left’s reaction to it – seem eerily similar to the Trayvon Martin shooting.

  • It was the far left protesters who were throwing rocks at police in the wake of this stabbing. This behavior doesn’t strike me as a very effective way to convince the public that one’s position is that of reason.

  • Archibald_Cunningham

    He’s definitely ugly enough to be antifa.

    • Good point. I’ve never seen any of those people who look attractive or even emotionally stable. One of my theories about the antifa is that they’re angry because they’re ugly, and simply use “social injustice” as an excuse.

      • Brian

        So they’re male lesbians?

        • Not quite sure about that. One of my old grade school friends is a lesbian, but she isn’t ugly. She was just a bit different.

        I agree. They are all ugly and surly, but not so tough. The sort that will sneak up behind you with a brick or find out where you live and poison your dog.

    This guy looks like an Arab. After decades of living blocks from the Socrates School (K-8), I can identify Greeks, and he is not one of them. As far as I know, intermarriage between Greeks and Arabs, historic and contemporary, is rare. He must be an Arab interloper or descendant of an interloper immigrant to Greece who changed his name to assimilate or infiltrate.

  • itdoesnotmatter

    This guy is an Arab, not ethnic Greek.

    • It’s not clear. The family name “Fyssas” doesn’t appear all that rare in Greece; one of their soccer players was Takis Fyssas.

  • Howard W. Campbell

    So, I guess that Golden Dawn is becoming too much of an embarrassment to the EU.

  • Steven Bannister

    Ok, let’s recap. A member of Golden Dawn kills a anti-fascist Rapper. The Left is outraged and takes to the streets to protest. Ok, so far I understand.

    But then – why do the Leftists attack a police station? I mean, seriously, what is the motivation here? The police DID arrest the killer, right? So why do Leftists attack the police?

    THIS is the fatal flaw of Leftism – a knee jerk, reactionary hostility to all forms of authority and tradition. It doesn’t matter that the police arrested the killer, the Left attack the police station….well, just because. Their motivations are rootless, they are like non-thinking animals who just blindly lash out against authority – whether it makes sense or not.

    This illogical behavior is a WEAKNESS of the Left that needs to be exploited by the Right. We need the police (and authority in general) to identify with US, not them. I am NOT saying I always agree with the police. But ultimately, in any social conflict, there are only two sides – Law and Tradition or Chaos and Unrest. Eventually, the police will come to realize that WE are the side of Law and Tradition and the other side only offers Chaos and Unrest.

    • The K-people very successfully exploited the irrational behavior of the left in Denver during their old public meetings. They would apply for a city permit, hold their rally in a park, give a few speeches, and then break off for dinner while the blacks and their enablers went berserk and attacked the police. This went on during my summers home from college (mid-to-late 1980s), for several years in a row.

      It was very predictable, and quite entertaining to watch on the TV news. The K must have enjoyed it as well, just because it was so predictable: “Look what we can make these idiots do!”

      • This is common behavior among our domestic left wing extremist white or pseudo-white street rabble. If memory serves, some offshoot of Occutards in Oakland were looking to screw up some meeting of right wingers that never took place, but they showed up anyway, and took out after cops instead.

        Left wing extremists think that cops ARE right-wing “extremists,” and might as well be K without the sheets and hoods.

        • The K at those Denver rallies didn’t wear sheets; they looked like professional office workers.

  • ViktorNN

    This is what the left and its media tries to do – they try to scare average working people from supporting populist right wing groups by demonizing the groups as violent.

    Any incident is blown way out of proportion, and apparently they’re not above using the tactic of using any pretext to ban right wing groups for any imagined “connection” to incidents like this one.

    Reminds me of the recent death of an antifa skinhead by a “rightwing” skinhead in France. The entire incident was provoked by the leftists, and then the death was used as a pretext for a ban on a right leaning skinhead group. This is probably what’s happening here.

  • Spartacus

    Nothing wrong with Golden Dawn.

  • Global Minority

    I’ll betcha this guy didn’t belong to the Golden Daen Party at all. Most lefists in the USA will stage an attack and say they are of the far right just to get the government to do something to them like outlaw them. There is no real proof of it so I’d say this person that did it was one of there own.

  • Romulus

    Yes excellent. Perhaps I should explain what I was alluding to. Russia is named for the rus Scandinavian Vikings that founded it. During the migration period northward between the 1100 and 1300’s is where you get the swarthy dark Asian haji, Mediterranean Russians. He has some Tatar in him. Whether he identifies as a Russian gentile or tribe is my point. While not agreeing with Trotsky and his I’ll, it does not follow that his DNA is “Russian”, despite his actions.

  • Romulus

    Whether a cat knows that it is one or not does not disprove heritability. If IQ is inherited ( notwithstanding regression to the mean) so are general characteristics of behavior and anatomy, obviously. There is a reason why Africans IQ and aggression manifests itself so apparently even excepting historic grievances.

    • Sangraal

      Well either way, I imagine it’ll be a while before we see any scientific studies into the matter!

    • alex

      Cats are genetically programmed to attack mice and small birds.
      Are Jews genetically programmed to be hostile to gentiles?

      • I doubt it; I knew some very decent Jews as a college undergrad. My old gun show partner was Jewish and fanatically honest.

    Good riddance. I guarantee he promoted violence towards concious and concerned white citizens.

  • Romulus

    Thanks for the tip. It will be a busy weekend. I will make every effort to discover where I read of Yosef’s last name. In the event that time constraints limit research, I will humbly concede.

  • Romulus

    Yes, quite true.
