A couple of days ago, I gave an interview to the ‘Olympic Radio-Television’ channel which covers the region of Western Greece – the Peloponnese and the Ionian Islands. The founder of the Ethnikos Kirix, Petros Tatanis, was born there, in Amaliada. So, I have some emotional ties to this area.
The questions the journalist asked me were thoughtful, targeted, and related to the American election. There is great interest in the elections in this area – mainly because of the importance of the election result for Greece as well.
Specifically, the journalist focused his questions on the role of the Greek Diaspora in these elections.
And it was not out of mere curiosity. They know the importance that the next president can have on Greece and Cyprus.
They know that the country that counts on the issues related to Turkey, is America.
The same, to a degree, happens with every American election.
The Greeks of Greece have always picked ‘their candidate.’ They have always believed that they know better than us who the most suitable candidate for the presidency is.
And now with the immediate information available on social media, despite the misinformation being circulated, they know a lot more.
But this time, at least, they are right.
A new Trump term will be very different from a possible Biden presidency for our national issues, especially regarding the management of Turkey’s expansionist policy to the detriment of Greece and Cyprus.
So let us keep in mind as we vote that the eyes of Hellenism are upon us. Because these moments are critical. For the security of Greece and Cyprus.
