Two sea scouts from the island of Lesbos, 18-year-old Xenophon Koukoutas and Yiannis Svoros, on Saturday accepted the inaugural John McCain Prize for Leadership in Public Service on behalf of the residents of their entire island, for their “heroic support of refugees fleeing mayhem throughout the Middle East and Africa.”

The prize was presented by the wife of the late Senator John S. McCain, Cindy McCain, at the 10th annual Halifax International Security Forum held in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

“In bestowing this prize upon the People of Lesbos, we recognize the sacrifices that so many ordinary people have made to bring safety, comfort, and hope to refugees enduring desperate hardship. It is my sincerest wish that this award will also serve to inspire others, wherever they may be in the world, to stand up for what is right,” she said in a statement when the recipient of the prize was announced.

Xenophon Koukoutas is a student at Piraeus University and a member of the Nea Smyrni 1st Sea Scout System, while Yiannis Svoros is a student at the Mytilene state Vocational Training Institute and a member of the 3rd Sea Scout System of Mytilene.

  1. Isn’t this special ….the number one war criminal …in not just Vietnam…but the wars in Iraq, libya, Yugoslavia, Syria. Yemen in funding , Arming, recruiting, and training with Saudi Arabia the Sunni Muslim Jihadist religious terrorist brigades which has led to the destabilization of all the governments and lives of the people of those countries in the Middle East ….. and the champion of the killing of 600,000 Iraqi’s with George Bush Jr. and Tony Blair base on lies…. the honorable Anglo White Supremacist John McCain!

    What these scouts should do … is to get one of the many pictures of the former Senator with his Al Queda associates …. which are now available …since, it was McCain …who with the C.i.A. appropriated 1 billion dollars to fund these guys ..to overthrow the governments of libya, Iraq, Afganistan, Syria …and now part oft he war crimes bombing of the poorest country in the world…..Yemen !

    Two weeks ago…. Congresswomen Tulsi Gabbard….and former Iraq Veteran … and member of the Arms Service Department… condemned the military for exactly the continued arming of these Terrorist rebels …and demanded they stop!

    Why don’t these award recipients… have a talk with the Patriarchs of the Greek , Syrian , Coptic Orthodox churhes of Syria. lebanon, and Jerusalem…. who met with John McCain in Washington ..demanding that he stop arming these terrorist organization who were burning the church of Christians in Damascus and Allepo…and murdering the clergy and faithfull in Syria and Iraq!

    Mr. McCain response…was to walk out of the meeting and refuse to address the clergy of the Orthodox Church…. and Obama response…was I know Dr. Assad protects Christians in Syria … and just ignored their request!

    While , John McCains family …will continue to rewrite the legacy of John McCain.with the help of the media and Secret Societies of Greek Masons …..for the Glory of America ….it will not help John McCain…whose soul will remain eternally in his grave …for his crimes against humanity…..which are documented and concealed by a very sick society of complicit supremacist and no moral compass left!
