Greece: "Nationalistic Populism and the Political Atmosphere"; Nikos Dimou (Νίκος Δήμου), το πνευματικό κλίμα - Ο εθνολαϊκισμός

Nikos Dimou, writing in Protagon  - Για λίγο διάφανο ουρανό, Νίκος Δήμου

Hard to translate "Ethno Laikismos", but it seems that the author is criticising signs of 'manipulative patriotism' whilst probing the prevailing mindset of the people.

The Guardian: German anger at Greek demands - "Greece’s justice minister, Nikos Paraskevopoulos, said Athens was prepared to approve a court ruling to seize German property in the country – including the Goethe Institute, the German Archaeological Institute, German schools and holiday homes if Berlin refused to pay €341bn (£240bn) in compensation. The demands, which also included the return of 8,500 archaeological treasures and artefacts in Germany, were met with incredulity in Berlin. Seizures of property that could extend to holiday homes of private German citizens would be used to compensate victims of a second world war Nazi massacre of 218 Greek civilians in the village of Distomo, the government said".

No feud?

From The Guardian:

Merkel spokesman: no private feud with Greece - "Following a week of heightened tension between the two countries, a spokesman for German chancellor Angela Merkel dismissed the idea of a feud with Greece".

BBC, on the wartime reparations issue

Reuters - "The point is that in Greece, too much of the fault for the problems of Greece is laid outside Greece ... Germany is the favorite victim of that at the moment," said Dijsselbloem, who is also the Dutch finance minister.
