The rape insurance affair


As always in pc Sweden ,AlexandraPascalidou , Swedish journalist (with Greek heritage so i guess that only makes her partly a prostitute???) seems to think we should be more “mature” about the whole “rape / Swedish women are asking for it” thing.

She says it was “only one paper in Chania” that spreads the idiotic “rape insurance” rumours.

Reality: If some little rag like “Ystads Allehanda” in Sweden wrote something similar about Greek women they would be nigh but hanged.

Also, it is not just some Greek guy expressing his opinions, it was an embassy official.

To call a whole ethnic group whores is not part of a debate and i will not respond to it as such.

Vassilios Bakalis is not a man!

Ps: This is NOT an attack on normal, intelligent Greeks!

Greece, sorry for wasting our money in your country!

Ps: I do NOT blame normal intelligent Greeks or inhabitants of Samos for any of this crap!

Swedish “Anna” notified that she had been raped in Greece but are now being prosecuted herself for defamation.


It´s funny that a devlopement country like #Greece , that pretty much lives from tourism, thinks that #Swedish #women needs to go there and sign a “rape insurance”, to cash in by accusing ther hairy back men. Their 3 world country where most people earn less than i spend on hamburgers?

A country that only recently started to allow people to be of any religion they damn well choose and that pretend to be the ancient Greece for no other reason than that the statues are still standing there.

Todays Greece has no more to do with classical Greece than todays Egypt has to do with the Pharaos.

Yes….you CAN find history in Greece, 19th century history, Victorian morals and as many veiled women as in Iran.

Oh! Btw. BEFORE you Greeks had religous freedom, i was at the Parthenon and the temples of Zeus and Poseidon and i poured libations at all of them. Sue me!

Greek Embassy: You should be ashamed of Swedish women

Swedish “Anna”  notified that she had been raped in Greece but are now being prosecuted himself for defamation. One viewer wrote a critical letter to the Greek embassy in Stockholm after TV4’s disclosure but was told that he should be ashamed of how Swedish women behave abroad.

More on this subjectApril 13, 2011“Anna” was raped on holiday – now charged with her

On Wednesday revealed TV4 news that the Swedish “Anna” who reported that she had been raped on the Greek island of Samos is now himself being prosecuted in Greece for libel. “Anna” has stated that she was raped and beaten last night on vacation, and when she was examined at a hospital immediately after returning home found the doctor that she had injuries from blunt trauma to the body and also injuries to the abdomen.Right certificate translated and sent to Greece, but Greek prosecutors chose instead to prosecute the “Anna” for libel.

Viewers reacted

Many viewers responded strongly to the news, Jan Tordsson so much that he sent a letter to the Greek embassy where he said that Greece should be ashamed.The response from the Greek COMMERCIAL ATTACHE Vassilios Bakalis surprised him.
“On the contrary, my friend, it’s you who should be ashamed of Swedish women’s behavior, on holiday in all parts of the world and to foreign nationals in their own country”, skew Bakalis.
– I was totally shocked. He  basically cut half the population of Sweden at the ankles. This man’s work of course as I understand the trade relations. That he expresses himself as against such an important group of Swedish tourists, Swedish women is outrageous, “said Jan Tordsson to TV4 news.

Kidding me away

When TV4 reporter calling COMMERCIAL ATTACHE Vassilios Bakalis to question what he means, he replies.
– It is clear English.
What is the kind of behavior you consider the fact that Swedish women have?
– Let me tell a joke. Many years ago in Rhodes, for example, demonstrated a number of Swedish women, who had placards saying: Please sleep with us, we do not have AIDS, “said Vassilios Bakalis.

Isis


  Isis or in original more likely Aset (Ancient Greek: Ἶσις) was a goddess in Ancient Egyptian religious beliefs, whose worship spread throughout the Greco-Roman world. She was worshiped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the matron of nature and magic. She was the friend of slaves, sinners, artisans, and the downtrodden, and she listened to the prayers of the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats, and rulers.Isis is the goddess of motherhood, magic and fertility.   The goddess Isis (the mother of Horus) was the first daughter of Geb, god of the Earth, and Nut, the goddess of the Overarching Sky, and was born on the fourth intercalary day. At some time Isis and Hathor had the same headdress. In later myths about Isis, she had a brother,Osiris, who became her husband, and she then was said to have conceived Horus. Isis was instrumental in the resurrection of Osiris when he was murdered by Set. Her magical skills restored his body to life after she gathered the body parts that had been strewn about the earth by Set. This myth became very important in later Egyptian religious beliefs. Isis is also known as protector of the dead and goddess of children from whom all beginnings arose. In later times, the Ancient Egyptiansbelieved that the Nile River flooded every year because of her tears of sorrow for her dead husband, Osiris. This occurrence of his death and rebirth was relived each year through rituals. The worship of Isis eventually spread throughout the Greco-Roman world, continuing until the suppression of paganism in the Christian era  Temples Temple of Isis (Pompeii) Most Egyptian deities first appeared as very local cults and throughout their history retained those local centres of worship, with most major cities and towns widely known as the home of these deities. Isis originally was an independent and popular deity established inpredynastic times, prior to 3100 BC, at Sebennytos in the northern delta.[2] Eventually temples to Isis began to spread outside of Egypt. In many locations, devotees of Isis considered a number of the local goddesses to be Isis, but under different names. The worship of Isis was joined to that of other Mediterranean goddesses, such as Demeter, Astarte, Aphrodite, and more. During the Hellenic era, due to her attributes as a protector and mother, as well as a lusty aspect gained when she absorbed some aspects of Hathor, she became the patron goddess of sailors, who spread her worship with the trading ships circulating the Mediterranean Sea. Likewise, the Arabian goddess Al-Ozza or Al-Uzza العُزّى (al ȝozza), whose name is close to that of Isis, is believed to be a manifestation of her. This, however, is thought to be based on the similarity in the name. Throughout the Graeco-Roman world, Isis became one of the most significant of the mystery religions, and many classical writers refer to her temples, cults, and rites. Temples to Isis were built in Iraq, Greece and Rome, with a well preserved example discovered in Pompeii. On the Greek island of Delos a Doric Temple of Isis was built on a high over-looking hill at the beginning of the Roman period to venerate the familiar trinity of Isis, the Alexandrian Serapis and Harpocrates. The creation of this temple is significant as Delos is particularly known as the birthplace of the Greek gods Artemis and Apollo who had temples of their own on the island long before the temple to Isis was built.

TEMPLES

Most Egyptian deities first appeared as very local cults and throughout their history retained those local centres of worship, with most major cities and towns widely known as the home of these deities.

PRIESTHOOD

Little information on Egyptian rituals for Isis survives, however, it is clear there were both priests and priestesses officiating at her cult rituals throughout its entire history.
