Some lines shouldn’t be crossed

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Cer­tain for­eign me­dia and a num­ber of Euro­pean politi­cians have be­gun re­fer­ring to Greece in a terms that are provoca­tively dis­parag­ing. The front pages of var­i­ous pop­ulist news­pa­pers, as well as the way that some Euro­pean of­fi­cials and politi­cians have taken it upon them­selves to speak pub­licly about the terms they would set or like to see set in or­der for Greece to re­ceive the fifth tranche of its bailout pack­age, cre­ate a lot of ques­tion marks. The only thing that is cer­tain is that they are sorely try­ing Greek pub­lic opin­ion and stok­ing our own do­mes­tic pop­ulist forces, whom no one wants to see get­ting too far out of hand. One can­not help but won­der whether there are those who want to pro­voke the po­lit­i­cal and so­cial sit­u­a­tion in Greece so that it reaches melt­ing point in or­der to serve their own in­ter­ests or in or­der to force Greece out of the eu­ro­zone. In any case, how­ever jus­ti­fied their anger, the EU, ECB and IMF should not cross the red lines that concern the na­tional dig­nity of Greek cit­i­zens.
