‘Zorba’ Composer Declares Himself an Anti-Semite



Mikis Theodorakis, the Greek composer who wrote the music for the film “Zorba the Greek,” said in a television interview that he is an “anti-Semite and anti-Zionist.”
Theodorakis, 86, a hero in Greece, also said in the interview on Greece’s High channel that “everything that happens today in the world has to do with the Zionists.” He added that “American Jews are behind the world economic crisis that has hit Greece also.”
The composer, a member of the Greek Communist Party for 60 years, once was a supporter of Israel but gradually became a major critic. He has gone from criticizing Israel to making anti-Semitic remarks and holding anti-Semitic positions.
Theodorakis criticized Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou for meeting with his Israeli counterpart, Benjamin Netanyahu, who the composer says is a persona non-grata in Greece due to his “war crimes in Lebanon and Gaza.”

  1. “I am just putting a spark today and will be waiting for more to follow. Until the spark flares up into a purgatory fire which will save us.” – Mikis Theodorakis

  2. WHAT A HORRIBLE THING TO SAY.
    COMMUNISTS SHOULD BE ERASED FROM THIS PLANET.
    PEOPLE LIKE THEODORAKIS HAVE DESTROYED GREECE! THE BLAME LIES ON HIS GENERATION AND HIS TYPE OF THINKING.
    HE IS A RELIC FROM THE PAST. NO ONE SHOULD TAKE THAT IDIOT SERIOUS.

  3. Good for him. I too used to feel the same way about “poor little Israel” The jews have been pulling this type of crap for over 200 years. Then again, when you call yourself God’s chosen I guess you can and will think of yourself as better than everyone else.

  4. It is exactly because of people like Mikis and Mr. Cardillo that we Jews need a Jewish State.
    The reestablishment of Israel in 1948 after 2,000 years of Exile is a “Biblical Miracle.”
    Happy to see that Mikis is finally admitting to being an Antisemite. Until now he has spewed his hatred but always denied being one.

  5. Clearly Miki is taking the micky! His 86 years have sent him senile! So the Jews are behind everything going on in the world, especially the financial crisis happening to poor Greece? The man needs to be locked away where he can’t do any harm! If our neighbour Turkey began firing thousands of missiles into Greece in support of their weak historical claims as the Arabs do to Israel, would Mikis be saying that Greece should just accept it without any retaliation? And would Greece be still willing to offer free electricity, water and medical care to Turkey as Israel do to Gaza? Get real Miki!

  6. Please Hari go educate yourself on the origins of Communism. As Bobby Fisher said many years ago, Communism is a mask for Bolshevism which is a mask for Judaism.

    Try reading the Talmud to see what the Jews really think of you.
