Should one laugh or weep?

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday hit out at President Recep Tayyip Erdogan who told young Turks, "Do not kick the enemy you have brought down to the ground. You are not a Jew in Israel."

Netanyahu said Erdogan was "the occupier of northern Cyprus, whose army massacres women and children in Kurdish villages, inside and outside Turkey" in a tweet late on Saturday.

Many years back Natsos Patetsos sang the song “Άσπρο μου περιστέρι”.. The current version,sung by the our prime-minister, is

Άσπρη μου Περιστέρα πέτα

στον ουρανό τον γαλανό

τ’ άσπρα φτερά σου άνοιξέ τα

Είσαι σύ αυτή που δεν ξεχνώ

The answer to your question is the following

 1) Περιστέρα

 2) Several gentlemen and ladies whose names were known only and      respectively 

             a) their mother and

            b) the doorkeeper at the condominium where they rented               before they were given government positions.

    It is well known that “to the victor belong the spoils".

Snap elections in Greece may take place on July 7 instead of June 30 as a result of nationwide university entrance exams, which will be running from June 6 to July 2.

After the government's defeat in European Parliament elections last Sunday, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said he would ask President Prokopis Pavlopoulos to start the process of calling early general elections immediately after the runoffs for local and regional government this weekend.

Sources on Monday said that Pavlopoulos has already contacted opposition New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis to brief him on the procedure that needs to be followed.

Initial reports on Monday had put the date of the general elections at June 30, though it now seems that this will need to be extended by a week, possibly as a result of the fact that the overwhelming majority of polling stations are set up at schools, which will be busy conducing exams.

In another thread there is a discussion about corruption and incompetency at the top. My point is that the political leaders wouldn't be able to sell b.s. if people weren't buying it. I noticed that Rena Dourou, Attica governor made it to the second round of elections.... So 1 in 5 voters bought her b.s. ...

As for the snap national elections, Syriza shouldn't get more than 4% (like in its early days)...   There has to be a serious penalty for such a ridiculous and catastrophic exercise of power   (of course this won't be the case, I know) if things are ever going to change in Greece.  In addition, leaders who try to be truthful and responsible they have to get public support.

"Υπαρχουν λεφτα"...  (only if you vote for me!)

Other than that, there's no global warming, huh? Unfortunately, I live in a country where the Asshole in Chief and his entourage deny such a thing.

There is no global warming don't you know?....the proper term nowadays is climate shift! Whatever happened to acid rain and the greenhouse effect and the hole in the ozone layer? The scientists change the nomenclature so that the general public forgets how long these issues have been around and that the previous stuff has some how miraculously been solved and now we have some new, more pressing emergency to deal with....until the next re-baptism of the same old problems under a new name.

Might be wise to invest in some future beach front properties in Northern Canada or maybe Greenland? Assuming the warming does not wipe us out by the time we can cash in.....

 

Or some sort of self sustaining amphibious island/boat homes?
