New Greek coalition includes anti-Semitic party ...


Greece had a new government on Monday after Syriza, Greece's radical leftist party, formed an unlikely alliance with a right-wing party.
While Syriza scored a historic victory in Greece’s general election, it fell short of winning an outright majority in the 300-seat parliament, gaining 149 seats.
That compelled the party's leader, Alexis Tsipras, to do a deal with the Independent Greeks party, which said it would back the 40-year-old former Communist as the country's new prime minister.
While Syriza is a coalition of socialists, Marxists, Maoists and Communists, the Independent Greeks are a conservative, nationalist party.
They were formed in 2012 by a breakaway group of rebels from New Democracy, the conservative party of Antonis Samaras, the outgoing prime minister.
Independent Greeks are led by Panos Kammenos, a former deputy shipping minister.
Regarded as a conspiracy theorist by his opponents, he has said that Greece is being ruined by what he calls a "neoliberal avalanche".
Kammenos last month claimed that Greek Jews paid fewer taxes than other citizens and that they were given preferential treatment.
His remarks were condemned by the Board of Jewish Communities in Greece, the country’s EJC affiliate, as a "serious anti-Semitic act". The claims were dismissed by a Greek government official as "conspiracy theories, lies and slander" drawn from "the dark side of the internet".
