ATHENS – Neo-Nazis have given a one-month ultimatum for Muslims to leave Greece or they will be “slaughtered like chicken”.
“Muslim Murderers, until June 30 you shut your bordela in Greece and you will go to hell,” reads a letter sent to the web-page of the Muslim Association of Greece and cited by EnetEnglish website.
“From July 1 onwards those who are still here will [be] slaughtered like chickens on the road.”
Written in Greek, English and Arabic, the letter uses vulgar language against Muslims in Greece.
It threatens that if Muslims do not leave the country, “there will be blood”
The emblem of a neo-Nazi, fascist group, the Golden Dawn, was printed on the letter.
Aided by current economic woes in Greece, the far-right Golden Dawn has been gaining popularity over its hostile rhetoric against immigrants.
The party has been blamed for recent attacks against immigrants in Greece, which is a major gateway for mostly Asian and African migrants trying to enter the European Union.
The Muslim Association confirmed that the letter is addressed to Muslims and not to immigrants.
“And this indicates that the religious hatred against humans is undisguised.”
It urged Greek authorities “to make certain that all citizens are enjoying equal law and that we are not prey in every asymmetric threat”.
Muslims account for nearly 1.3 percent of Greece’s 10.7 million population.
Anti-Muslim tide has been on the rise in debt-hit Greece, which is battling a growing recession that has brought thousands of job layoffs.
In 2011, Muslims holding an open-air prayer near the city centre in Athens to celebrate `Eid Al-Adha, were harassed by local residents who threw eggs at them and blared loud music from windows.
