ADL blasts Greek paper for branding Obama win `end of Jewish domination`

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on Thursday blasted a mainstream Greak newspaper for running a headline declaring Barack Obama's election as "The end of Jewish domination."

The headline, which appeared in the November 4 issue of Avriani, a mainstream daily newspaper, announced: "The anticipated victory of Obama in the U.S. elections signals THE END OF JEWISH DOMINATION. Everything changes in the USA and we hope that it will be more democratic and humane."

Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, lambasted the paper's editors for having "taken a backward leap to a time in the not-so-distant past when Europeans shamelessly wore anti-Semitism on their sleeves, and when public expressions of hate for Jews were the norm."
