When I was last in Athens two years ago Golden Dawn was a violent streetlevel militia, whose members were regularly beating up migrants and leftists in the streets of central Athens. At that time Golden Dawn had no MPs and little national political clout. Since then it has become, according to most polls, the third largest party in the country, with eighteen seats in parliament.

At some point, the blame and part of the responsibility for what happens within their own country has to fall on the Greek public. Ninjas did not destroy the Attikon. Ninjas did not set fire to nearly 50 buildings around Athens. Ninjas were not the ones asking for money so as not to burn down the Asty cinema house, just a short walk away from the Attikon. These were citizens of Greece. Whether provoked, coerced, brainwashed or otherwise, these were citizens of Greece.
