Greece Tells Church of Cyprus Over Land Deal: Show Us the Money

Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias, called to testify in a land transfer dispute between Greece and the Church of Cyprus, said he was upset with the way he was treated and that the Greek government must first be paid.

Kotzias was on an official visit to Cyprus where he represented Greece in the trial where he objected to the transfer to a company representing Russian interests unless Greece is paid compensation required under the terms of the initial deal.

He also told the judge that this dispute does not fall under either Greek or Cypriot justice but it is an international dispute, according to Kathimerini.

But he was apparently peeved at the way he was being questioned in court by a lawyer representing the Kykkos Holy Monastery and reportedly said that not even during the junta “were Greece and a Greek minister so vilified,” referring to the 1967-74 Greek military dictatorship that ran the country in an oppressive manner.

Kykkos and the Greek government are locked in a legal dispute over a plot of land at Metochi Kykkou in Nicosia, which was sold to Greece in 1999 for the equivalent of 500,000 euros ($593,524).
Cyprus media reports said that the two sides had a verbal agreement that the Embassy of Greece would be built at the site of the plot within 10 years. Bishop Nikiforos was also quoted as saying “he wanted to be able to see the Greek flag flying just across from Metochi.”

It didn’t happen and the Greek Ambassador was said to have heard that the land would be sold off even though the monastery legally didn’t own it and would first have to pay the Greek government 2.3 million euros ($2.73 million) in compensation according to the sales agreement between Metochi and Greece.
Archbishop Chrysostomos had sent a letter to the Greek government agreeing to pay but asking that the Land Registry department  first transfer the property his side didn’t own.

  1. Chypriotes are always slumming with them Ruskins! Nesselrode sent Uspensky to deHellenize the Antiochians (and almost Jerusalem) eventually causing Michel Aflaq to found the Assad-Saddam Ba’ath party. Nazi Balkan butcher Alois Bruner (responsible for the death of half a million Greeks) died as a houseguest of the Assads. Uspensky and Kapustin went to buy up Jerusalem properties now under ROCOR to prevent Moses Montefiore (the Jewish Tositsas) doing so on behalf of the British.

    1. So the writer…. accuses the Greek Cypriots of slumming with the Russians….and based on the writings and manuscripts of over 100 – 200 years ago that the Orthodox country of Russia, are not to be trusted, and threaten the peace and security of the world! Importantly, it provides all the evidence, that the people of Cyprus , Greece, and for that matter the world , that they should join the United States and Nato , even though they are not members of Nato….in maintaining an adversarial relationship, and joining Nato in successfully reviving the Cold War….which was needed …in order to give Nato a reason for existing, and allowing the United States and United kingdom to occupy Vassal states of Europe to confront…the big bad boogeyman Russia !

      The problem with the writer …is that she needs to read the published documents of 1994 – 2018, which not only reveal that it is not the Russian Orthodox People of Russia, the world needs to fear, but the fascist Alliance of the United States, United Kingdom, and Saudi Arabia slumming with the Jewish State of Israel! I have a scoop for the writer …Russia is not a communist controlled country, but a parliamentary institution where Freedom of Religion exists, and to my knowledge does not maintain an ‘open air prison’ of Palestinians, nor have they executed 35 unarmed Palestinians, or the murder of 3000 civilians in that occupied part of Gaza….called the open air prison of the Jewish State of Israel.

      However, if you haven’t noticed……over the last 20 years….Russia has not been slumming with the Jewish State of Israel and their new ally the Islamic Sunni Muslin Salafist terrorist state of Saudi Arabia…where “Freedom of Religion does not exist..and as a practical political policy…discriminates against Shia Muslims” by the way….this is the description of the State department of the United States. On the contrary….. The Russian Federation has been slumming with the Dr.Assad family and the leaders of the country of Syria….where ” The constitution of Syria provides for Freedom of religions, and the government generally respects this right to practice” “Both government policy and the generally amicable relationship among religions in society contribute to the generally free practice of Religion” Source: State department of the United States!

      Which explains why the writer hates the Russians….because in fighting the Sunni Muslim Religious Jihadist of the brigades of Saudi Arabia and supported by the Jewish State of Israel and the United States, who have murdered and religiously cleansed Orthodox and Catholic Christians of Syria….they have interfered with the degenerate Global agenda of this alliance to overthrow the governments of any independent country in the Middle East, who are not compliant to the mutual interests of this alliance, and refuse to give up their sovereignty to the economic , political and military control of this degenerate freaks who are responsible for the death and injuries of over 3 1/2 million civilians in the middle East.

      What the writer represents….is the scripted Narrative of White Supremacist degenerates fascist who now own the U.S and Israeli governments…. to punish Russia for exercising its right as a member of the security council of the United Nations, and with the invitation of the Syrian Government …..to confront acknowledged Terrorist fanatics attempting to overthrow not only the government of Syria, but its constitution! Today, the war criminal Netanyahue continues to violate International laws by ordering the firing of missiles from the airspace of Lebanon on the military bases of Syria….in support of their terrorist armies!

      The writer is merely …. following the scripted narrative to demean the Assad family..but as the State Department description highlight of who Israel slums out with ally Saudi Arabia, and then compare the State Department description of the Assad family leaders of Syria….reflects who the writer actually represents.

      No ….what the writer has exposed…is that the Cypriot people should elevate their relationship with Russia, Iran, and any country that Israel and the United States tell you are their enemies! I would be more concerned with the Greek people …slumming with the like Mr. Netanyahue and Mr. Trump….because whereever their is money to be made relating to oil and gas…. war follows!

  2. Meyendorf and Obolensky inform us thatthe Chrinicle of Monemvasia shows Taygetus and Elia are largely of Slavic origin which must include Mr G. Here is the full backstory of his beloved Slavomongols:

    330 BC Great Alexander fences first Russians, Magog of Persian Gog, with Caspian Gate of Caucasian Dervent. Scyths, Turks, and Russians are mindless barbarian extracts of Persian steambathing deerherders, and in sum constitute the eternal threat not only to Hellenism but all civilization.

    866 Patriarch Fotios commences schism on Rome Pope Nicholas on cause of Bulgarian frivolities favoring Rome. This instigated orientalist Platonic Chrysostomist black clergy overcoming Aristotelian Capadocian whites after collapse of iconoclasm.

    1235 Bulgarians declare Trnvo Third Rome, seeking Greece and Constantinople. This adopted by Russians in in 1589, declaring protocommunist obschina to slavify world The urban mentality is the root of Hellenistic Civilisation, thus those seeking peasant clan naturalism are slavseeded squatters.

    1342 Communist Zealotes take Salonica, slaughtering aristocracy on orders of Russian agent Gregory Palamas. Palamas brings Slavs and Turks to support 1345 Cantacuzene usurpation, giving Turks knowledge of defenses. Spread oriental demonic hyperventilatory hallucination hesychasm, turning monks into soviet agents. Toynbe wrote that Asia Minor farmers embraced Turks to avoid Cantacuzene taxation.

    1824 Russia opposes to the creation of unique Greek state and under orders of Minister of Exterior Nesserode (German victor for seat against Kapodistrias) proposes to remaining powers the foundation of three separated Greek statelets, vassal tributary simultaneously to Turkey and Russia, as earlier with Moldovia and Georgia.

    1843 On command of Nesselrode is dispatched the panslav Archimandrite Uspensky to turn Arab-held Grecophone Christian flocks of Jerusalem and Antioch patriarchs and finally achieves in 1847 the detachment of Antioch who now proclaims dehellenising dissemination. Turning to Persozoroastrian roots, Russians embrace monofysites as misunderstood victims of Greeks, and fabricate supposed Aramaic Gospels over Greek. These efforts consummated century later with Michael Aflaq, founder of Saddam Assad Ba’ath Party.

    1870 Panslavs assault Ecumenical Patriarchate with publication of Turkish firman founding autocephalous Bulgarian racial parasynagogues, supposed Exarchate, under orders of Russian ambassador Ignatief. Now they distort the synodical anathema at racism against dispora. They allocated five myriad rubles in 1872 to slavify Holy Mountain and expel Greeks.

    1878 Ignatief forces Turkey sign St. Stephen Treaty commencing FYROM and creating Greater Bulgaria inclusive of Salonica. Ignatief announces “And now if Greeks wish Constantinople, let them arrive swimming!”

    1923 Plastiras slaughters victors of Macedonia, allowing orientalists Vafiades and Zahariades commence civil war. Meletios Metaxakis seeks move Patriarchate to Moscow at Lenin invitation and organises supposed panOrthodox Youth Syndesmos. In 1937 Stalin displaces 285 thousand Russian Greeks to Archangel and Siberia and slaughters them. The black goats force even Mataxas and Junta into Socialism

  3. Just who is this Michael Gianakos and why does the Notional Harrowed allow his posts but prevents others?

    Well, the Internet exposes all trojan horses and makes them bankrupt:

    1997

    January: Michael Gianakos is found tied up at a Moorhead motel where he is employed. He claims he was robbed, but later admits to stealing money and staging the robbery to cover the crime. After telling police his girlfriend at the time — Jamie Dennis — was involved, he later changes his story. AnneMarie Camp tells police she babysat for Dennis on the day of the motel incident.

    Glory be to America and ONLY America!

    1. In response to George Psirofimas Post….. and for that matter, secret society historians….. Jimmy Katsithas and Zefyrios Malamolis , I can only thank them for making my case…. as highlighted in my previous post.

      Importantly, George Psirofimas post… cannot do a better job of serving the Greeks of America, Cyprus and Greece….in putting a face…to degenerate fascist leaders of America … who slum with the now acknowledged new alliance of state sponsors of terrorism and war crimes in Syria, Iraq, libya and Yemen, and whose best friends.. Sunni Muslim jihadist named ISIS, Al Nustra Front, and Al Queda commit genocide against Orthodox and Catholic Christians., who scream from their shelters in Damascus…to stop their attacks on the people of Syria.

      Mr. Psirotimas post cannot do a better job…of demonstrating how ideological degenerates ….can conceal, and oppress the truth from the populations of Christian, Jews and Muslims….in order to provoke crimes against peace and to promote hate and fear of anyone, who opposes or interferes with their fascist Agenda which is no more than the “Black Hand” policies practiced by 1920’s organized crime families called the Cosa Nostra. If you don’t …understand that ….look it up on the internet!.

      Mr. Psirofimas…. reflects what the Neo-Nazi leaders of the United States count on…. and can only be executed by any number of Secret Societies, who are merely compliant collaborators to whoever the ruling party of a country is….and does not matter , if Adolph Hitler and the Nazi party was in charge! a

      Mr. Psirofimas… is just like the White Supremacist.of Israel and the United States….who believe that the public is so stupid and inferior, that they cannot comprehend their lies, and can impune the reputation of every person in the world, whose name is Michael Gianakos….as criminal murderers, and get away with it!

      Only White Supremacist Fascist, are so delusional and demented, that they would like the world to believe …..that they did not deliberately overlook the names of 100’s or even thousands of names with Michael Gianakos on the internet …. and to find only one who could support their efforts to demean the arguments of this Michael Gianakos!

      All this in behalf…of any number of fraudulent secret societies who currently operate in this manner, when someone opposes their views…like the Ahepa, HALC, Masons, John Birch. etc etc. All them, tell you that they represent Hellenic issues, but in reality, they are a Networking bunch of rich Aristocrats, whose only real purpose for existence… is to promote themselves with the Washington political elites, by being compliant promoters ……of the Glory of America and ONLY America! These are same type of people …who for the Glory of Germany…sent a lot of people, who they considered subversive to them… to gas chambers and concentration camps!

      The following quotes are from some great Americans….who recognized Tyranny, and payed a much more heavier price than Michael Gianakos for speaking the truth….and depict what so called Patriots and intellectual historians practice…and what it is….is Hate and fear!.

      “It is a tribute to the American people that their leaders and representatives perceived it necessary to lie, to wage war, but it is not a tribute to the Public…..that they could so easily be fooled”

      “Nothing in the World is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity”

      Martin Luther King Jr.- Speech on enslavement and Justice

      Speech by President John F. Kennedy….warning American about Secret societies and the Press….
      Two weeks later ….President Kennedy was assasinated. exactly two weeks after this speech

      Following Excerpt:….from his speech…

      ‘The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.

      The question is for you alone to answer. No public official should answer it for you. No governmental plan should impose its restraints against your will. But I would be failing in my duty to the nation, in considering all of the responsibilities that we now bear and all of the means at hand to meet those responsibilities, if I did not commend this problem to your attention, and urge its thoughtful consideration.

      It is the unprecedented nature of this challenge that also gives rise to your second obligation–an obligation which I share. And that is our obligation to inform and alert the American people–to make certain that they possess all the facts that they need, and understand them as well–the perils, the prospects, the purposes of our program and the choices that we face.

      No President should fear public scrutiny of his program. For from that scrutiny comes understanding; and from that understanding comes support or opposition. And both are necessary. I am not asking your newspapers to support the Administration, but I am asking your help in the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people. For I have complete confidence in the response and dedication of our citizens whenever they are fully informed.

      I not only could not stifle controversy among your readers–I welcome it. This Administration intends to be candid about its errors; for as a wise man once said: “An error does not become a mistake until you refuse to correct it.” We intend to accept full responsibility for our errors; and we expect you to point them out when we miss them.

      Without debate, without criticism, no Administration and no country can succeed–and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian lawmaker Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment– the only business in America specifically protected by the Constitution- -not primarily to amuse and entertain, not to emphasize the trivial and the sentimental, not to simply “give the public what it wants”–but to inform, to arouse, to reflect, to state our dangers and our opportunities, to indicate our crises and our choices, to lead, mold, educate and sometimes even anger public opinion.

      This means greater coverage and analysis of international news–for it is no longer far away and foreign but close at hand and local. It means greater attention to improved understanding of the news as well as improved transmission. And it means, finally, that government at all levels, must meet its obligation to provide you with the fullest possible information outside the narrowest limits of national security–and we intend to do it.

      It was early in the Seventeenth Century that Francis Bacon remarked on three recent inventions already transforming the world: the compass, gunpowder and the printing press. Now the links between the nations first forged by the compass have made us all citizens of the world, the hopes and threats of one becoming the hopes and threats of us all. In that one world’s efforts to live together, the evolution of gunpowder to its ultimate limit has warned mankind of the terrible consequences of failure.

      And so it is to the printing press–to the recorder of man’s deeds, the keeper of his conscience, the courier of his news–that we look for strength and assistance, confident that with your help man will be what he was born to be: free and independent.

      Thank you , Mr. Prosifinos, you have struck a blow for America…by revealing how the American people have been so easily fooled…. to allow war criminals and degenerates to run our country!
      Daniel Elsberg, Martin Luther King and John F. Kennedy are the American Patriots not you and your secret societies Ahepa, Masons, John Birch, HALC, Zionist lobbyist, TNH, and your fascist governments who continue to search for another war of aggression based on lies, and apparently, Russia and Iran are next!

      On behalf and with honor …..all the Michael Gianakos’s of the world….good or bad!
      Michael Gianakos
