Car Full of Weapons and Explosives Found in Athens

Car-Armory Filled With Heavy Weapons Found in AthensHellenic police sounded the alarm on Saturday, February 1, around noon when a car filled with weapons was spotted in the streets of Palaio Faliro in Athens, Greece. According to Greek news, the car had been under surveillance by the Greek Special Anti-Terrorist Unit, for days.

Sniffer dogs were used and when police opened the boot they found one RPG, three rockets, three AK-47 Kalashnikov rifles, four hand grenades and a large number of rounds.

Greek police officers had originally spotted the car when patrolling the area surrounding the New Democracy headquarters. It has been reported that the Special Anti-Terrorist Unit intercepted calls suggesting that the headquarters were being targeted. This led them to the car which was parked about 1km away.

The car, an OPEL ASTRA was under surveillance for 10 days, while police officers were waiting for the perpetrators to approach the vehicle so they could be arrested. In the end the car was transferred to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations for a thorough examination.

The investigators are hoping for positive DNA evidence from the examination. Furthermore the RPG was similar to that used in the attack against the American Embassy. Police officials have expressed their fear that the car may be connected to escaped terrorist Christodoulos Xeros.

The Hellenic Police have identified the owner of the car, who reported it stolen in the area of Keratea.

    This arsenal most likely belongs to Leftist Marxist Terrorists. Lets wait and see what the Hellenic police say

    The also play up any gun related crimes so that they can justify major gun grabs in the future. Leftists always want gun confiscation so they don’t have to worry about being overthrown when they start rounding people up. Like Stalin did in Russia before putting people in the Gulags and the Communists did in the Ukraine prior to the Holodomor.

    Granted our leftists are clueless but Golden Dawn are no better. Aside from shamelessly demanding government handouts like the communists do (rather than just working to improve Greece themselves), they have twisted patriotism and Hellenism into Nazism. There was no need for Nazi paraphernalia to be a Greek patriot. Much like Stalin loving Tsipiras, GD’s Hitler loving leader just further undermined our country.

    If someone doesn’t like ND or Pasok for their mistakes thats understandable but choosing communists and nazis is an alternative is not only idiot but risks conflict.

    These people are not the problem. The PROBLEM is in Greece today we have 2 “Criminal Gangs” from PASOK and New Democracy Parties running a government of Thieves, Liars & Crooks who sold Greece out & created all these problems today.

    It was PASOK & ND Parties who created all the financial problems in Greece
    by their corrupt rule and mismanagement– (Akis Tzahadzopolous and Yiannos
    Papantoniou are ex-MPs from PASOK who are an example of their horrific
    corruption).

    1.) Why isn’t PASOK’s MP Venizelos in jail for hiding the Legarde List 2 years
    in his home? And what about Venizelos’ controversial submarine bribery deal, he
    signed in 2010?

    2.) Why isn’t PASOK’s Finance MP Papconstantiou in jail for removing his
    relative’s names on the List?

    3.) What about PASOK & ND Parties still owing 250 million Euros to the
    Banks in phony loans they have not paid back a penny yet?

    4.) What about Health Minister Georgiades who got caught cheating on his taxes
    the other day and was let off with a minor fine of 1200 Euros. Whys is he still
    a Minister and not fired??

    5.) Why aren’t Kyriakos Mitsotakis and his sister Dora in jail after taking
    BRIBES from Seimens?

    It seems to me the Gov’t and Press here is using ANYTHING as a DISTRACTION to
    take attention away from the Massive Crimes these two corrupt Parties have
    committed as well as Treason against the whole Greek nation after 39 years of
    corrupt rule– They MUST ALL BE IMPEACHED and JAILED for high crimes and
    TREASON against the Greek People and State!

    This could explain why the Troika are reluctant to return to Greece.
