Israel will shun new Greek minister with antisemitic past
Israel will not work with Greece’s new Agricultural Development and Food Minister Makis Voridis because of his antisemitic past, a senior diplomatic told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday.

Voridis was sworn in Tuesday along with 50 new ministers following Sunday’s election, which proved victorious for the New Democracy Party led by new Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

Mitsotakis is considered strongly pro-Israel; on Sunday evening, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called to congratulate him on his victory.

World Jewish Congress head Ronald Lauder issued a statement after the election saying that Mitsotakis “is a true ally of Israel and has always demonstrated deep support and friendship for the Jewish community in Greece.”

“We look forward to working together with him in the months and years to come, and trust that he will include among his top priorities the serious need to eradicate any and all remnants of antisemitism and neo-Nazi ideology from within the country.”

But Voridis, his new ministerial appointee, has a history of antisemitic actions and statements.

Lauder noted that the extreme-right and antisemitic Golden Dawn Party failed to pass the 3% election threshold, and thus will not have representation in the new parliament. It had 18 seats in the outgoing parliament.
