UN hands out "cultural understanding" award to Jewhater.

Let's say you're a chairman of an international organisation. Now, let's imagine you have to nominate an artist for his contributions to world peace and understanding between cultures. Who would you pick? Bono? Pink Floyd? John Lennon?
Well, if you're Kofi Annan that natural pick would be the author of the Palestinian anthem, Mikis "Jews are the root of all evil" Theodorakis.

UNESCO awarded its International Music Prize 2005 to 'Zorba the Greek' composer Mikis Theodorakis for his contributions to understanding between cultures and the advancement of peace.

"understanding between cultures and advancement of peace". Hmm, OK, now let's cite some things this guy said two years ago:
  • "Jews are the root of all evil"
  • "He said he doesn't hate Jews, but rather Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's policies regarding the Palestinians, which he described as Nazi-like. Sharon -- and other Jews in influential positions -- persuaded U.S. President George W. Bush to go to war against Iraq, he added."
  • He called Jewish claims of anti-Semitism a "masochistic reaction" by a people who like to be "the victim."
  • "They hold world finance in their hands, so it's only natural that they would see themselves as very strong," Theodorakis said. "In America the Jewish community is very strong. It controls much of the economy, certainly the mass media," he said.
  • "The Jewish people now appear to control the big banks. And often the governments. So whatever bad or evil comes from the governments, it's natural for ordinary people to associate that with the Jewish people," he said.

Luckily for us, he also found the solution to all our problems:
After describing how his religious grandmother believed Jews drank the blood of Christian boys during Easter, the composer said the problem was that Jews didn't accept Jesus.

Well. No wonder the UN gave him the award from promoting "peace" and "understanding between different cultures". He's clearly a very tolerant, loving man.
In fact, I wonder which painter will get that award this year, with Hitler being dead and all.

  • Why are you surprised? There have been many changes in the last 2000 years except one: hatred of Jews. Anti-Semitism is a constant in the otherwise changing environment. The anti-Semitic representation of today may not be the same as it was 1000 years ago but the core hatred of Jews has not changed. Mikis is one of those. He wrote the Palestinian Arab anthem which inspired by Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Al-Aqsa Brigade and the rest of the Palestinian Arab terrorists to kill more Jews.

  • Is that the anthem that says "my fire and the volcano of my revenge", "With the resolve of the winds and the fire of the guns", "Palestine is my revenge", "I will live as a guerrilla , I will go on as guerrilla"?

    I quote again: "for his contributions to understanding between cultures and the advancement of peace".

    How can that make sense?

  • To him and the rest of his kind it makes perfect sense because he hates the living Jews even if he prays to a Jew.
