Israeli embassy in Greece vandalized with red paint

Extreme left activists storm the Israeli embassy in Athens and throw dozens of red paint bombs at the front of the building in protest of Israel's 'ethnic cleansing' of Palestinians.

Ten activists of the radical leftist group Rubicon on Monday vandalized the Israeli embassy building in Athens, Greece, with bottles of red paint.



They arrived riding motorcycles at around 6:00 in the morning while the building was unmanned, and wore helmets to hide their faces.

"We identify with the Palestinians, a nation that for decades has been a victim of oppression," Rubicon said in a statement following the incident. "In reality, the Palestinians are pressured to leave their land. This is ethnic cleansing at a low intensity level for decades.


"The question that arises from the Palestinian struggle that must confront us all is the question of the nature of the Palestinian struggle for independence. It is a question of survival of a nation in the land on which it was born."

Many protests have been launched around the world against Israel and the United States following US President Donald Trump's announcement earlier this month that the United States recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.


Demonstrations have taken place mainly in the Muslim world, including in Jordan, TurkeyIran, Lebanon, Pakistan, Malaysia and Indonesia.


Most European countries have declared their opposition to Trump's moves, and none of the countries in the continent has voted in the United Nations against the resolution condemning the American declaration.
