Two points relating to the message below:

• One questions how the announcement below is fitting for this list, as it is exclusively political in content for all its righteous indignation.

•  If it is a fitting announcement, then this indignation is quite selective: for a number of years in Greece (Left-)Fascist violence has been continuous, murderous and has been given cover by SYRIZA, the major opposition party. This violence has included the burning of bookstores (and the beating of their employees by unkempt, dirty thugs), bombings and arson (and subsequent destruction of some of the oldest buildings of the center of Athens), and of course the murder of three Marfin Bank employees, in a fire that was deliberately set. Which brings to mind Heinrich Heine's distich, "Where books are burned, there they also will burn people."
