In one such article published in March this year, they accused the Democratic Left Party leader Fotis Kouvelis of being a “Jewish Communist agent” with links to George Soros. In an earlier article, the newspaper accused Mathew Nimetz, UN Special Representative for the naming dispute between Greece and Macedonia, of being a member of the Rothschild family who is involved in their global Jewish conspiracy.
In June this year, the self-described “independent patriotic newspaper of all Greeks” Makeleio published an anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, nationalist and homophobic tirade against the current mayor of Thessaloniki Yiannis Boutaris.
