It was written によって a frence journalist and i thought i should share it with you. The 記事 is in Greek and English.

Greece and the Greeks suffer in silence.
For four years, Greece is pointed, the Greeks are insulted, the country is banned, it is the plague of Europe.
Because Greece is a Mediterranean country. If Greece took place at the north of Germany, between Sweden and Finland, it would find every excuse. Protestant country where the sun shines a few hours a year, a people crushed によって the cold and the too long night, then one would find in Greece...

- Because we are not racists.

- Because we go out almost every night even if we are penniless.

- Because we know how to spend better...

Apart from those investors who have taken a bet against Greek bonds, I don't think anybody wants to see Greece default. I believe these investors are wrong and they will end up losing. Greece should ignore these bets and have confidence in the...

Prehistoric and Bronze Age civilization
Main articles: Helladic period and Mycenaean Greece
