    Website of Greek Neo-Nazi Party is Suspended

    ATHENS, Greece (JTA) --The Greek neo-Nazi Golden Dawn Party, which won nearly seven percent of the vote in last week's elections, has had its official website taken down by its host, WordPress.

    "This blog has been archived or suspended for a violation of our Terms of Service," said a message from WordPress that replaced the Dawn Party's homepage.

    The web page hosting service bars sites that include "hate content" or "contain threats or incite violence towards individuals or entities."

    The extreme-right Golden Dawn Party, whose flag closely resembles the Nazi swastika, received 21 seats in parliament, the first time it passed the threshold to enter the legislative body. It campaigned heavily on an anti-immigrant platform under the slogan "So we can rid this land of filth."

    Despite its strong showing, it is not clear how many Golden Dawn members would ultimately end up as lawmakers, as Greece appears headed to fresh elections. A poll published Sunday in the local To Vima newspaper indicated that in a new vote, Golden Dawn support would shrink to less than 4 percent.

    Last week's elections resulted in a fractured parliament as voters protested against the mainstream parties they blame for the country's financial crisis and for accepting harsh European austerity measures.

    Greek President Karolos Papoulias was holding last-ditch effort talks with political leaders on Sunday trying to form a national unity government after the three largest parties failed to assemble a coalition. If the bid fails, the country must hold new elections in June.

    Greece's Jewish community has condemned the rise of Golden Dawn as "a serious blow for Greek democracy."

    Oh what a shame, a party some people don't like got votes. What a bizarre statement to make about democracy...

    Now, what does this sound like to all of you? Someone does not like these results and wants to keep holding elections until the people "vote properly," otherwise there is no "democracy."

    Papoulias called together the leaders of the three biggest parties on Sunday, a week after indecisive elections and three failed attempts to form a government.

    After the meeting, the leader of the radical leftist Syriza coalition said other parties wanted Syriza to be their “partners in crime,” adding: “We can’t do that.”

    In a new vote it could lead to less votes for Golden Dawn, but opinion polls are not the most accurate of things. I could see people either voting for one of the more popular parties in a new vote, or Golden Dawn prehaps gaining a bit, seeing as it is now clearly not a 'wasted vote'.

    However, the media has been in full swing condeming the party. I guess we will just have to wait and see how it pans out.

    How stupid must one be to run such a website on word.press?

    It's not that expensive to get own webspace, and have someone do the site, there might be members who do it for free.

    Having such a website on any social media, blogservice you name it (public service providers who are subject to international law) is just stupid, sorry.

    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit
