On Saturday, Greek main opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras underlined the need for his party to dominate politically and take advantage of its victory in the European Parliament elections, and within this framework to undertake initiatives towards the national agreement, during his address to his party’s central committee.

Tsipras charged the government and Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras for “humiliating the parliamentary institutions and scaremongering,” and reassured that SYRIZA will not follow this path.

He stated that his party is the most powerful and organized political force in Greece at this moment, “a political force that secures stability”.

Ahead of the start of the procedures for the election of the President of the Hellenic Republic, Tsipras called all political forces, as well as the independent MPs, to state their position clearly.

Despite the fact that he did not rule out the possibility of rapid political developments, he underlined that “we can say with certainty that the presidential elections will be a landmark for the country” because as he said “the government does not have the parliamentary majority to elect the new president that would allow it to continue its disastrous course.”

Tsipras said that SYRIZA should not be trapped in the so-called ideological clarity, adding that authority means “the ability to create a majority based on our program” and pledged that he will insist on the need of a wide political, social and national agreement.

He said that the government has dried along with its success story’s bubble and charged Samaras and Venizelos that “in order to undermine SYRIZA, they do not hesitate to undermine the country’s stability,” adding that the Prime Minister did not have the boldness to demand what the program he co-signed foresees; after the achievement of a primary surplus, start the discussion for the debt’s sustainability.”

The main opposition leader predicted that “the markets will probably be hostile towards Greece for a long period,” adding that the markets are playing their own games and noted that only after a substantial debt relief they will stop being hostile.”

Referring to the developments in the Balkans and the Middle East, Tsipras charged Turkey’s stance on Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone, saying that “it consists a despicable violation of Cyprus’ rights, enshrined by international law”. He also expressed his concern over the recent developments in Dervitsani, Albania, noting the need for immediate action against the nationalist tension in the Balkans that is against the efforts for cooperation and solution to the area’s problems.

US Tells Tsipras That Turkey Will Attack If Athens Proclaims EEZ
Washington believes that if Greece declares its EEZ and begins hydrocarbon exploration in the Aegean then Turkey will provoke a heated incident in the Aegean. This "message" was apparently conveyed by Eric Rubin, US State Department Deputy Assistant Secretary to main opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras when they met in the US capital last week. Tsipras then of course passed on the "message" (or sermon) to a few select deputies at a closed meeting last Wednesday.

According to an article by Athanasios Ellis in the Sunday edition of Kathimerini, Washington is against the projection and submission of coordinates and maps, but not necessarily against Greece conducting drilling (in other words, drill, if you have to, but no maps), and this only in areas that do not cause friction, such as the Ionian or south of Crete. (A similar story was also featured in the Sunday edition of "To Paron").

On the other, the US wants Greece to restrain itself and seek consultation with other "stakeholders" in regards to the Aegean. It should be reiterated that in 2010 the then State Department special envoy for Energy in Eurasia, Richard Morningstar, had said that Greece and Turkey should share the energy in the Aegean because of "questionable" (or 'grey') areas.

Editor's Note - In other words, the US sent a message to Athens through Tsipras to not overstep its "UNIVERSAL RIGHT" in Greek territorial waters because Turkey will react negatively if this happens, and it does not want Greece to publish maps which will prove that these territorial waters belong to our country. The only thing we understand from this is that Greece obviously has the maps to back up its territorial sovereignty. But back to the "message" from DC, or what we want to believe is a select few who believe that they run the world. Why so much fuss about the maps? Is this because these Golden Boys in Washington purposely want the division of the Aegean and the world to believe that there are actual grey zones in the Aegean -through falsifications- when we all know there aren't? Is this why these few circles in Washington continually support Turkey over Greece, because we know this is not the case of all Americans, and certainly not all US politicians. This only applies to Morningstar -who we find rather dull- and his band wagon of friends, who are all inter-connected from the Clinton and Bush eras. But enough about them, What the heck is the Greek lobby in the US doing about this? Oh... silly me, our INACTIVE Diaspora leaders in Washington don't lobby... that is demode... they only attend chic soirees and push their own political agendas. But that is not all, they also fatten the wallets of specific US politicians who in some cases support these messages of horror to the Greek people. Will our Diaspora for once stand up -in its entire INACTIVE life- and finally defend this country and do what they were elected to do which is to LOBBY for Greek interests? And finally... why send the message with Tsipras? Is Alexis their new Papandreou? Hmmm....  :-*

As Greece faces the consequences of an inconclusive election, BBC Radio 4's Profile looks at the rise of the leader of the left-wing Syriza Party who rejects EU austerity plans as "null and void" and is now playing a critical role in determining the country's future.

At 37, Alexis Tsipras is Greece's youngest political leader - and a champion for Greek voters, young and old, outraged by tax rises and spending cuts.

His hard-hitting campaign in last week's election catapulted his Syriza coalition of left-wing and green parties into an unexpected second place, presenting a potentially historic opportunity for the Greek left to establish itself as one of the country's main political forces.

The English-language Israeli daily, the Jerusalem Post, one of the top outlets through which the Jewish establishment communicates with the whole of Jewry in a largely unfiltered way, today published some reflections on the events which have taken place in Greece over the last week, extending the commentary to the larger issue of Jewry’s presently precarious position in Europe.

“The Jew is immunized against all dangers: one may call him a scoundrel, parasite, swindler, profiteer, it all runs off him like water off a raincoat. But call him a Jew and you will be astonished at how he recoils, how injured he is, how he suddenly shrinks back: “I’ve been found out.” -Joseph Goebbel
