Some so-called "super-patriots" – unless they were agents provocateur (history is filled with those, as with the infamous bombing of Ataturk’s house in Thessaloniki in 1955 that was later proven to have been done by Turkish agents) - burned two cars of Turkish citizens living in Thessaloniki Monday morning. One of them belonged to a Turkish diplomat.

People would have to be completely idiotic or must have gotten paid to do something like that. There is no other explanation. The Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs correctly characterizes these actions as "unacceptable and irresponsible." We could not agree more.
