Hitting the Hellenes Abroad

Many readers of The National Herald will probably have read that the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Responsible for Hellenes Abroad, Antonis H. Diamataris, submitted his resignation Thursday to Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, who accepted it.

Unfortunately, however, with the resignation the enthusiasm generated by Mr. Diamataris’ choice for worldwide Hellenism, the Patriarchate, and the ordinary Greeks abroad, has now become bitter.

The personal attacks on Mr. Diamataris were aimed at the Prime Minister.

And this could not be allowed by Mr. Diamataris himself, who saw the resignation as an appropriate act.

Certainly, knowing the former publisher and director through decades of working with him, and because we know that the attack was orchestrated by certain marginalized individuals in the Hellenic Community, and at least one of them with a criminal record, in collaboration with Mr. Alexis Tsipras, who continues to disappoint the expatriates, everything will be answered in due time.

We, like you, know what sort of man Mr. Diamataris is. Immediately after his appointment he separated his fate from the newspaper, which he left in the hands of his children. And respecting his position in the Ministry, he had no contact with the newspaper.

We have complete confidence in him and will allow him to speak for himself on exactly what happened as soon as possible.

We learn that the main reason for the resignation was the existence of a law in Greece that forbade him to chair companies.

How would he know about it in America when everyone, even Presidents, can be businessmen?

As soon as he was informed, at the first opportunity that he found himself in the U.S., he filed the change documents, but bureaucracy along with the Thanksgiving holiday delayed the appearance of the change for the two companies they mentioned.

But the well-wishers found another excuse.

The hiring of a former EAB chief, who was prosecuted, accused, and took a decade to clear his name in Greece.
And because he was innocent, finances were his specialty and he knew the Diaspora as well, Mr. Diamataris hired him since he had a great deal on his mind about the Diaspora. Some of his work also included financial arrangements for expatriates.

This may not all be part of an editorial. But it is imperative in this case that the Greek community should not be bitter. Everything will be answered and those who wanted to hit the Prime Minister through his Deputy Foreign Minister did nothing but reveal once again how much they fear worldwide Hellenism. And those answers will come soon.

However, the ambitious project, Mr. Diamataris’ vision, which would irrevocably connect the Hellenes Abroad with the motherland with solid foundations remains on hold. And this is due to the opposition…


  1. The opposition consists of treasonous degenerates and Mr. D should not have allowed them to get a victory here.

    1. How appropriate, that Diamataris and publisher of TNH has become himself a victim of regime change warfare.like those he promoted with Geoffrey Pyatt, Hillary Clinton , Ahepan Robert Menendez, George Bush Jr and Joe Biden to remove the elected leaders of the government of middle East and Europe ..like Yugoslavia, and of course.. the Ukraine!

      Diamataris, it is appropriate for you to be the victim of fabrications or lies to fool the public as it was to justify.the slaughter of million of foreign citizens to remove their elected official, by your Best Aristocratic mobster friends and indicted pay to play friends.. Ahepa Robert Menendez , Joe Biden , and of course George Bush Jr. . All of them , glorified by your Greek Secret Society of Ahepa Masons publication to serve right wing Neocons in not only America ..but Greece!

      And let be clear.I didn’t say it.. The New York Times said it ..and which the Billionaire Greek Oligarks and you proclaimed yourselves, like your fraudulent Greek Secret Societies ..the undisputed leaders of the Greek Community to defend your former boss…as just a really nice guy,

      However, unlike the regime change victims in the Middle East and Europe ..you have your own personal newspaper to refute any lies and have the last word, in defending your honor, which no one can dispute or challenge!

      So I await all the evidence you have to support your honor and reputation, something you did not afford the leaders of libya, etc

      . .

  2. I respect Antonis and I consider him an honorable man, who has run a great newspaper, serving the Greek American community. The question is, was he actually padding his resume? Everyone here blames the messenger, which is the worse thing to do. Reading over his resume, the way its written, it could be misconstrued that he had graduated with an MBA. Whether it was intentional or not, only Antonis knows.
    The fact that the false information was discovered is not a bad thing at all. That’s why we have a democracy. To check the current administration, for power grabs. maybe there are haters, since Antonis is running a newspaper, some news stories might have gotten under some people’s skin. For sure, Tsipras was upset at this newspaper and he mentioned, that NH was against him the past 5 years. The issue is not only the reporting against Tsipras, which is straight news and should be reported, no matter who is offended. The issue is Andy Dabilis’s “letters from Athens”, which were derogatory, nasty, demeaning, with personal attacks against Tsipras, using language unbecoming this news paper, such as “$20.00 hooker”, which leads me to believe that Dabilis has plenty of experience with $20.00 hookers, whack job and so much more. It got to the point, where I called Antonis and asked him to have Dabilis fired, for the language being used, or at least censored. Again, I have no love for Tsipras, but Dabilis’s articles were inflammatory, over the top and Xrated.

    1. Bob I respect your opinion but I don’t think Mr Dabilis went hard enough on Tsipras. I enjoy reading Andy’s material and find it very entertaining. He is an asset to this paper and adds humor.

  3. Bob Karpodinis ..another member of the” Glory to America and Israel” Greek Secret Society of Ahepa Masons …and right wing Aristocrats.reveals that journalist of his paper..like Andy Dabilis..who actually tell the truth, whether you like or not ..and with passion to convey the urgency of removing a Traitor to Greece…Tsipras,, for simply ..being guilty of the number one crime of political leaders and officials ..lying!

    You then go on to smear and demean Andy , who demeaned Tsipras for reneging on his election promises to remove U.S and Nato bases from Greece, reject an EU bail out financial plans..that was nothing short of extortion of whatever resources and sovereignty Greece had, then turn over the Macedonian Name to satisfy Geoffrey Pyatt and Robert Menendez to add another U.S base to the 850 bases around the world, and blatantly, in front of our eyes, prostitute himself to the now acknowledged members of the impeachment committee to stay in power in Greece!

    You then smear him, as a low class solicitor of cheap 20 dollar hookers and prostitutes , and suggest that articles he wrote ..were the reason ..the honorable Diamataris and Mistotakis were attacked!

    Of course .. Diamataris and Diabalis conspired to demean Tsipras and promote MIstotakis and his Aristrocratic Oligarks and Secret Society followers! However, Diamataris was despicably rewarded for his good work.. in a classic corrupt despotic appointment fo the Greek government!

    1. cont..

      Hey Bobbi.. while you are representing your fraudulent Greek secret Society …in smearing Andy as pleasuring himself with 20 dollar hookers, you should be reminded, that your pride and joy…Israeli Agent, indicted Pay to play corrupt Democratic Senator of New Jersey and number one Political Prostitute, who does tricks for nothing less than a million dollars for the state of Israel, not America or Greece… was actually charged with receiving what he called Gifts ..millions of dollars from our Medicare fund thru one of his Israeli donators ,who is now in jail for 20 years, and importantly charged with enjoying one of his many gifts ..which was pleasuring himself with under age Teenage girl prostitutes in one of Jeffrey Epsteins.. pleasure islands in the Dominican Republic, with other clients …Hillary and Bill Clinton!

      Fortunately, for Menendez, not only did his accusers suddenly disappear, but so did his host ..Jeffrey Epstein!

      Importantly, is it not Diamataris…who endorsed and campaigned for the election, like Mistotakis..of Ahepan Robert Menendez, and lied about his credentials as the greatest Hellene in Greek History..when he was the greatest traitor to me and the American people!

      Is it not Ahepan Robert Menendez who got Mistotakis to support economic, political, and military warfare on the people of Venezuela .to starve them to death ..if they did not surrender their elected leader to Menendez, while Tsipras refused!

  4. Cont..

    Diamataris will have his opportunity to defend himself because he has control of a newspaper ..which leaders of foreign countries were not afforded in the Western fake News Media!

    However, Andy Diabalis, like Julianne Assage..should not be prosecuted for telling the truth, and calling out Public officials who lie to their public!

    However, lying and distortion have never been grounds for any politician to be removed from office, as a matter of fact by TNH and Associated Press standards..it is a requirement!

    John Swinton (1829-1901), A Journalist who worked as a writer for a newspaper, and had a career writing for more than a few stated in America, about the independent press…and perfectly describes why Diamataris and his Greek Secret Societies of Aristocrates got caught doing .. …

    “There is not ONE of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did you know beforehand that it would never appear in print!

    I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with… The business of journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread…

    We are the tools of rich men behind the scenes. We are jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men.

    We are intellectual prostitutes!“

    Merry Christmas… Bob and Andy!
