Syriza’s connection to George Soros

When I first heard that a left-wing party won the Greek elections, I got my hopes up. Now I know that Alexis Tsipras, the Syriza leader and the Greek prime minister is no more than controlled opposition supported by Soros. Syriza agreed on reforms imposed by the lenders of Greece, and they are austerity measures which even a right-wing Greek party called The Golden Dawn refused. Thus, Tsipras and his party are abandoning everything they stood for during their electoral campaign.

Tsipras himself declared his support for Palestine directly after he won the 2015 elections by saying “today Athens and tomorrow Gaza”, but now the Greek foreign minister visited Israel (right during the time of the latest 2015 referendum where the Greek people voted “no” to the bail-out conditions imposed by the Troika). A sudden change in the stands of Syriza might be shocking for some people, including myself, but those who knew that Soros backs the so called “left-wing” Greek party would never have been shocked. Instead of strengthening Greece’s relations with alternative supporters like Russia/BRICS, they rush to Israel.

Soros and his Open Society Foundations have supported an “independent” media center called Indymedia, which forms a so called “leftist/anarchist” group that forms a part of Syriza .

In 2013, Soros himself helped in arranging a visit for Tsipras to the USA so that Tsipras could address the public in the states. In the USA, Tsipras went to the Brookings Institute (owned by Soros) to give a speech, and he also met US state Department officials.

Slavoj Žižek, a supporter of the Soros-backed Russian feminists Pussy Riot (he exchanged letters with imprisoned Pussy Riot member Nadezhda Tolokonnikova) also supports Syriza, and his student was Pablo Iglesias Turrión, the leader of the Spanish party “Podemos” (which is a Spanish version of Syriza).

So instead of a genuine opposition to the barbaric austerity measures imposed by the Troika, here come some fake-leftists because Soros never leaves an issue without meddling his millions in it.
