Greece: Antisemitism watchdog demand action against antisemitic newspaper

Via Get the Trolls Out (h/t Watch: Antisemitism in Europe):
With this letter, we would like to report the occurrence of unethical media practice from the Athenian newspaper “Eleftheri Ora" (“Ελεύθερη Ώρα”) which clearly violates the Ethical Principles of Journalism approved by the General Assembly of Journalist's Union of Athens Daily Newspapers.
In the last four months, we have identified the following six headlines – attached to this letter – breaching the standards of ethical journalism:

1. 13 July 2015: “The Jews - Free Masons Merkel and Schauble are trying to snatch Greece's mineral wealth”;

2. 22 July 2015: “Something big will happen on September” - An arch-rabbi announced the date of... Antichrist's arrival - He urged Jews from all over the world to return to Israel”;

3. 15 September 2015: “The horrible predictions concerning Jewish “Shmita” – The “year of Lucifer” began on September 13th!”;

Despite its relatively small readership and the little credibility this particular newspaper seems to have, we believe that all citizens across Greece are exposed to the openly antisemitic headlines of its pages, visible in every kiosk or press agency of the country.
