The American Jewish Committee reports that Israel and 'American Zionists' have, once again, been accused by Greece's disturbingly right-wing neo-Nazi party, Golden Dawn, of committing a host of alleged 'sins', according to a letter published by a representative of the party in its political paper Chrysi Avgi.

Ilias Kassidiaris, the author of the article, made striking claims that "Greece is being transformed into an energy protectorate of the American Zionists" and that "the so-called joint defense policy between Greece and Israel is treason for our national interests."

Kassidiaris additionally argues that "the Turks and Jews are de facto allies and partners" against Greece.

In a press release on PR Newswire, David Harris, Executive Director of AJC, states, "Tragically, according to polls, the Golden Dawn today ranks third among political parties in Greece, which is why such patently ridiculous assertions can't simply be ignored."

Although the controversial party is not in the governing coalition and the other parties currently in power have repeatedly condemned the racist acts and provocation, members of the Golden Dawn, including Kassidiaris, continue to sit in the Greek Parliament where they aim to inseminate their neo-Nazi, dictatorial platform.

"That such a party exists at all, especially in a country that fought so valiantly against the occupying Third Reich, and lost nearly ten percent of its entire population in the war, is profoundly upsetting for all friends of Greece," Harris added.

"It feeds off the severe economic crisis that has engulfed Greece, which is yet another compelling reason why Europe, the United States, and international financial institutions must continue to support efforts to restore a sense of hope, possibility, and growth for the nation's future."
