Horrific Knife Attack Targets Migrants in Crete



    greece-knife-attackThe Greek authorities must act immediately to curb the growing spate of xenophobic and racist attacks Amnesty International said today. It follows a brutal knife attack by a mob of around 20 men on two Pakistani migrants on the island of Crete in the early hours of yesterday morning.

    The two young men approached Amnesty International for help, saying they were too scared to report the matter to the police or seek medical attention for fear of being deported.

    “At the same time as we’ve seen a spike in xenophobic violence around Greece, the lack of laws to protect victims with irregular status has meant that reporting such crimes can result in the victims being deported while their attackers walk free,” said Jezerca Tigani, Deputy Europe and Central Asia Programme Director at Amnesty International.

    “This only contributes to the general climate of impunity for the perpetrators of such attacks and it allows for an acceptance of these horrific crimes.”

    Hours before Tuesday’s attack, the far-right political party Golden Dawn held a meeting in Irakleio. The party’s anti-immigrant message has grown in popularity at the same time as xenophobic and racist attacks – some of them deadly – have been proliferating across Greece.

    The victims of the attack told the organization they were walking along a street in the town of Irakleio in the early hours of Tuesday morning when around 20 men dressed in black surrounded them with cars and on motorbikes. After asking where the migrants were from, the mob attacked them without any provocation, stabbing them before throwing them to the ground and kicking them.

    Amnesty International members arranged medical help for the victims after they sought assistance from the organization on Tuesday afternoon.

    “We found ourselves in a tragic situation where we could not report the incident to the police or get the victims to the hospital because they were scared of being deported due to their irregular status,” said Katerina Chasouraki, an Amnesty International coordinator in Crete.

    The men received medical treatment and are recovering from the incident, but photos show the deep gashes they sustained – to the forearm and chin – as well as bruise marks along their sides where their assailants kicked them.

    At the end of last year, special police units were set up to tackle racially motivated crimes in Greece, but there is still no provision that would protect victims who are in an irregular situation from arrest and deportation during the investigation of such crimes.

    “The Greek authorities must do more to bring an end to these racist attacks, and to ensure that migrants are not further victimized by being at risk of detention or deportation when they report crimes or seek medical assistance,” said Jezerca Tigani.

    1. Greeks are proving in front of the whole World their Cowardliness towards the weak……SHAME on Greece!
      Qou Vadis Greece?

    2. Shame on anyone who thinks that ANYONE deserves this in any way. I’ve read the most disgusting comments on this site. People saying that immigrants should be killed by firebombing, napalm, rounded up and murdered. Absolutely disgusting.

    3. I noticed that you modded up “Niko Stylo” racist statement towards Greeks This coupled with all you other offense statements about Greeks (as welll as you modding up Tonto who calls the Skopians “Macedonians”, as well as slandering me) suggests you are bigot lecturing about racism.

    4. They shouldn’t be killed but the should be deported for lawlessly violating borders. In addition, anu foreigner that is a legally in the country,,,.. but that back stabs the Greek people by supporting either illegal immigration or treasonously calling the Skopians “macedonians” should be forcibly ejected from the country.

      Only immigrants that are loyal to their new homeland should be allowed to be citizens. Show any Greek-haters the door.

    5. While they lecture Greeks about allleged “human rights”, amnasty international as well as other alleged “human rights” NGOs (aka pompous manipulators that just frame their politics as “human rights”) … ALL no pretend not to notice the former Yugoslavians transforming into”ancient Macedonians” and irredentism towards Greeks

      To hide their shame for calling the Skopians “Macedonians” these Greek hating bigots are prepared to ethnically delete Greeks by trying to muddle ethnological space with geographic. (while our leftist buffoons imagine that they are their friends)

    6. We should kick out Amnasty International and other foreign funded NGOs from Greece. If anyone believe they are above politics, mistakes and prejudices all one needs do is view their disgusting behavior towards Greeks on Macedonia issue.

      The fact is these so-called “human rights’ NGOs collude both with illegal immigration into Greece (manipulatively trying to frame illegals as “undocumented migrants’ and “immigrants”) as well as colluding with Skopians in trying to delete our very identity as Greeks,

      Do not let these people’s pretentious use of the words “human rights” anaesthetize you into thinking they aren’t capable of profound evil.

    7. Virtually every Zionist globalist institution has condemned and worked diligently to interfere with the Greek people’s struggle to control immigration and regain control of national culture and economy- through Golden Dawn.  Fictitious hearsay litters the mainstream yellow press, as baseless accusations of racial attacks are used to smear the reputation of the Greek people as well as the legitimate and logical demands of the People’s Assembly Of Golden Dawn.  Yet, “curiously” enough, the major entities that lecture for the dissolving of borders, destruction of the Greek economy, and the racial replacement of the indigenous people of Greece with Africans and Asians stay silent on the senseless and cruel barbarism of the Zionist genocide machine in Israel.

      A new incident of Talmud-inspired hate took place in the occupied West Bank, where the native Palestinian people live in bondage under a Zionist occupation. In an attempt to drive indigenous Palestinians out of their homes to make room for settlers, the Israeli government has interfered with the water pipes of Palestinian homes and redirected them to the swimming pools of Jewish settlers. Here is the humanitarianism of the  state of those who lecture the world on “human rights” and “tolerance”!

    8. The two young Pakistani men approached Amnesty International for help, saying they were too scared to report the matter to the police or seek medical attention for fear of being deported.
      Well I guess they prefer to stay in Greece than to return to the Islamic 3rd world hellhole Pakistan.

    9. Support Golden Dawn.
      A Golden Dawn government will expel all Zionist funded pseudo human rights organizations such as Amnesty International and ban them from re-entering Greece.

They have no business being in Greece. Enough of the kindness and the lending of help. They have abused it. They are unwanted and they know the country is in a a mess and they still keep coming. They show no respect for Greece or it’s borders. They can go to hell for all I care and you can go with them.

    22. “We found ourselves in a tragic situation where we could not report the incident to the police or get the victims to the hospital because they were scared of being deported due to their irregular status,” said Katerina Chasouraki, an Amnesty International coordinator in Crete.

      Hold on here, They didn’t go to the police and went to Amnesty International? An organization that has no problem screaming bullsh!t? Who don’t know any of the facts other then two guys with knife wounds? It’s as simple as two guys walking in with a story, for all intents and purposes something they could of made up to cover their own actions……and AI screaming headlines.

      We need to see a police report or some more neutral authority before I believe anything that AI puts out as truthful. For all we know, these two were involved in something criminal or with their human trafficker or initiate it.

      We have nothing other then a splashy story with no proof of who or how it happened.

    23. But you support politicians from a corrupt party, “New Democracy”, that looted Greece for 39 years, allowed up 3 million illegal immigrants to enter Greece, & led Greece into an economic abyss that has led over 4000 Greek citizens to commit suicide, whilst not a single corrupt politician has died. Congratulations.

    24. No, I don’t think they should killed. First, they should be allowed to rape your daughter and beat up your grandmother/steal her wallet. Then I think they should be killed. Does that work for you?

    25. Always remember – and I have tracked Golden Dawn / Greece international reporting very closely for over a year – the lying global Zionist media NEVER reports a goddam thing about what the INVADING ALIENS do to Greeks. We have a situation where the global Zionist media are doing their best to destroy the racial and cultural integrity of all white nations. Israel rounds up and ships back all invaders, but the Zionist press keeps this fact hushed up. I’d love to see Greece shoot every last Pakistani, Algerian and sundry African shitskin it can get a bullet into.

    26. Yes – and this is what the Greeks say. But the global media, the lying commies at The Guardian, the American Associated Press – they will not report word one on what these illegal invading colored aliens do to the Greeks. They will always and only attack the Greeks for defending their country. The media are evil. Any media and reporters (better called liars and coverers up) supporting the NWO and the destruction of white nation states deserve to be shot right along with the illegal invaders they champion.

    27. You shamelessly support someone that admires Nazis that massacred Greeks. ND made mistakes. Some want to compound that with even greater stupidity of fascism and communism.

      Hellenism is not about Nazism or communism MSmiles.

    28. Oy Vey! These evil nazies are killing those innocent people. Multiculturalism is our strength.

    29. You understand perfectly.

      When a greek is murdered by an illegal.. its trivialized and called “crime”. When an illegal is killed by a Greek.. its automatically framed as “racism” and makes world headlines.

      I would also note all the foreign media and foreign “human rights” NGOs (aka fronts that just pretentiously frame their politics as “human rights” to trick the slow witted)… all play stupid as the Skopians turn into ancient Macedonians and threaten our country (to hide their mistake of recognizing Skopians)

      In short, some of the those that claim to speak for “human rights”… are in fact racist towards Greeks.

    30. PASOK is finished, New Democracy will soon follow into the dustbin of history. ANEL will also fade into the same oblivion that LAOS faded into. The only parties that will remain shall be SYRIZA, KKE and Golden Dawn. Alot of SYRIZA supporters are already leaving SYRIZA and transferring their support to Golden Dawn. Most New Democracy and ANEL supporters will transfer their votes to Golden Dawn once New Democracy and ANEL collapse. You say Golden Dawn can’t win a countrywide election, but you ignore the fact that Golden Dawn polled a mere 0.29% of the national vote in 2009, then followed up with 6.97% in June 2012, & today is polling as high as 18% to 20% nationwide. Who knows what their percentage of the vote shall be by June 2016? Golden Dawn is Greece’s fastest growing political party. You will one day remember my words when I say with 100% confidence that the future belongs to Golden Dawn.

    31. GREECE IS FOR GREEKS.WE SHOULD PROTECT OUR RELIGION,FAMILIES LAND FROM ILLEGAL INVADERS WITH ANY WAY.
      THE ZIONIST MEDIA ARE CALLING THE ILLEGAL INVADERS AS IMMIGRANTS ..ARE LIARS….AND THE PROTECTORS OF OUR RIGTHS AS NAZIS…

    32. I dispute your “20%” figure. The number is closer to 13%. In addition GD has no other Greek parties willing to form a coalition government with it. You are living a fantasy that GD can gain power. It isn’t even close to being able to achieve that.

      By comparison communist Syriza (which were once a fringe party like GD) have around 21% with the capactity to create a colilition party with KKE and other leftist oriented parties. They do have the capacity to form a coalition government if they win an election.

      http://www.thecommentator.com/article/3974/greek_neo_nazi_group_golden_dawn_hails_poll_boost_among_the_young

      GD has maxed out its support by too many of its supporters engaging in Nazi-style propaganda. Most Greeks oppose Nazism much like most Greeks oppose communism.

      Again by supporting GD all you are achieving is taking votes away from ND and giving the treasonous communists a chance to win. If that’s what you want, keep doing what you are doing.

    33. What makes me angry is do the ZOGs ask the native citizens of europe whether we want MASS invasion from africa and asia and eastern europe NO. Greece is a proud nation and I respect that. It’s a myth to think that ALL the ancient Greeks were blonde and blue eyed. Yes there are still blonde blue eyed real Greeks but they are feqer in number than in northern europe because Greece is in the meditteranean.
