U.N. Honors Anti-Semite!

UN honors 'Zorba the Greek' composer with peace, humanity award...

UNESCO awarded its International Music Prize 2005 to 'Zorba the Greek' composer Mikis Theodorakis for his contributions to understanding between cultures and the advancement of peace

Alleged Anti-Semitic Comment by Composer Mikis Theodorakis Causes International Storm
"We are two nations without brothers in the world, us and the Jews, but they have fanaticism and are forceful." He said that the Greeks revere "great" figures such as Pericles while the Jews "only had Abraham and Jacob, shadows ... Today, one can say that this small people is at the root of evil, not of good, which means that too much self-importance and too much stubbornness is evil."

Speaks for itself...
