Letter to Editor

Thank You Mr. Diamataris; Shame on You Mr. Tsipras

To the editor:

Having followed Tsipras’s conduct over the years, I’m not surprised by his scurrilous attack against Antonis Diamataris – it’s what he excels at. But the piling on by Greek media is deeply disappointing. I can understand how hurt Mr. Diamataris must feel, responding to the call to help our γενέτειρα and being treated so shabbily in return. For readers of the National Herald, however, there is also a bright side to this sorry saga.

Mr. Diamataris will be able to write more frequently and devote more time again to the paper that he nourished and maintained for so long as the Greek diaspora’s premier news vehicle. Mr. Diamataris could have made additional contributions to Hellenism through his counsel in the inner circle of the Greek government. But his impact through The Herald already constitutes an immensely enviable legacy – and that is something no one can take away from him.

To the Editor: In September 1922, there was a genocide in Asia Minor, bitter days for the Hellenism that lived there for thousands of years.
