Michaloliakos was Right: Greeks Enraged at Gypsy Parasites After Kidnapping of White Child

This is multiculturalism.

An unknown little blond girl found living in a Roma camp with a couple who are not her parents has opened an international hunt for her real mother and father and sparked age-old anger against Gypsies who are among the poorest people in Europe.

Police in Greece have released photographs of a couple charged with abducting a girl known “Maria” and taken them into pre-trial custody.

An international search for the young girl’s parents has intensified.

A 39-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman, identified as Christos Salis and Eleftheria Dimopoulou, were detained Monday on charges of abduction and document fraud following their arrest last week. Police raided a Roma encampment near the central Greek town of Farsala and found the girl, who a DNA test has shown is not the couple’s child.
“This story shocked me,” said Vassilis Sarantidis, 37, a civil engineer in Athens.
“We all see on the streets how the Roma use their children — they hit them, they force them to beg. They must all be investigated.”
But the couple insists they were given the child by a destitute mother and some people are warning Greeks not to give in to bigotry over a child whose story is being sensationalized in the press.
“The allegation that Roma steal children is a long-lasting myth about the Roma minority,” said Andreas Hieronymus, a researcher at the European Network Against Racism based in Hamburg, Germany.
The case has triggered a global outpouring of sympathy and possible tips to police about the case but no breakthrough yet in identifying the child.

Thousands of people have called the Smile of the Child charitable group that has been caring for the girl, named Maria, to ask about her welfare and give tips on who she may be. She remains unidentified, and the group said a dental exam indicates she is 4 to 6 years old.
