Caught With His Pants Down

After a Games that had been dogged by scandal and bad behavior, Greek officials were probably looking forward to the Olympics closing ceremony. After all, what scandalous behavior could occur there?

 

Umm….

Aussie water polo player Craig Miller was dragged from the closing ceremony of the Athens Games after pulling his pants down while celebrating centre stage with fellow athletes.

 

Miller, 32, was grabbed by security staff and rushed from the stadium. “He pulled down his trousers,” a Greek official said after bundling Miller away.

 

The veteran water polo player looked stunned and a little shaken as he was taken away for questioning, his belt hanging loose and his trousers askew.

And still on the topics of bad behavior and Greece, Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis continues to demonstrate that he is no fan of the Jewish people.

A famous Greek composer, Mikis Theodorakis, who wrote the music for the film “Zorba the Greek,” went public with a wide array of anti-Semitic claims Friday.

 

In an interview with Ha’aretz, the composer accused the Jews of controlling the world’s banks and mass media. In the past, he has referred to the Jewish people as “the root of evil.”

 

“They hold world finance in their hands,” Theodorakis said. “In America the Jewish community is very strong. It controls much of the economy, certainly the mass media…The Jewish people now appear to control the big banks and often the governments. So whatever bad or evil comes from the governments, it’s natural for ordinary people to associate that with the Jewish people.”

World finance. The banks. Mass media. Governments. Could he possibly accuse the Jews of controlling anything else?

Theodorakis, who composed a national anthem for the Arabs of Judea, Samaria and Gaza, and whose music accompanied the Olympic flag at the opening of the 2004 Olympics in Athens, also blamed his derth of recent concerts on Jewish control of orchestras.

I had to ask.
