UPD Naousa: parents of school children reject heating-oil donation by George Soros

Are Greeks crazy? Most probably. There could be no other logical explanation, when parents reject a heating oil donation and take the risk that school radiators remain cold. OK, political motivation and other interests in the area cannot be excluded in this case, and we are very far away to know exactly what’s going on there. The issue is that parents of school kids in Naousa rejected the donation of 20 tones of heating oil by tycoon George Soros and his philanthropic organization.

The donation was asked by the mayor of Naousa who foresaw that the children of the municipality were going to freeze this winter due to cash shortages that would lead to icy-cold schools in Naousa, in Northern Greece. Prompt was the reply from  Soros’ Open Society Institute that offered to donate the heating oil.

But the parents’ association decided in a vote to reject the generous donation. “It is the state that has to cover the needs of our children,” the parents’ association informed the city council expressing also suspicion about Soros’ …motivation. “Who knows what he will ask in return,” the parents claimed.

“First we have a reasonable suspicion about the reasons as to why the philanthropist tycoon suddenly thought about the problem of schools in Naoussa . We are not convinced that the offer is unconditional . We are confident that Soros expects something in return for this donations and we do not want our children to get involved in such a game,” the president of Parents’ Association of Naousa told daily “Macedonia”.

PAoN president Manolis Galitis told private Skai TV that the parents’ associations in Greece do not want sponsors at the schools and that the donation of Soros was just 9 tones and not 20. “Soros does not have a good reputation here in Macedonia, anyway,” Galitis stressed.

Greek Interior Ministry has approved an amount for heating oil for schools, “Naousa received just 66,000 euro. That’s nothing,” Galitis stressed to Skai TV.

Until the parents solve their problems with George Soros,  radiators in 54 schools in Naousa will most probably remain cold amid freezing temperatures.

UPDATE: It seems that the community of Naousa rejected Soros’ offer due to his “Skopje-friendly” attitude.

“Soros has been even accused as financier of anti-Greek propaganda of FYROM.

[Here is to note that Greece and FYROM have been struggling for more than two decades of the name Macedonia with Skopje claiming Macedonia to be theirs and Alexander the Great too.]

In March 2013, George Soros offered 90 tonnes of heating oil to the institutions of Thessaloniki and 40 tonnes to the municipality of Athens. (ProtoThema)

 

PS What could George Soros ask in return for supplying schools with heating oil? I have no idea. But I would distribute the donation to some families in my area, families that try to survive the winter without heating. And furthermore, I would also use some of the money to pay the debts of low incomers and pensioners.

George Soros should only contact me. And we can talk about what he will ask in return later.

  1. It’s a delight to see there are people left in Greece that still have some honor and common sense.
    If KTG did some research on this evil fraud soros, and if she had half a brain, she might understand.

  2. you need professional help, I am afraid, and this not just because you’re a malicious person. You know what I mean, don’t you? I approved your ‘comment’ for a change just to let you know my advice.

  3. I hear you KTG and unerstand you, but deals with the devil is not the answer..George Sorros is an evil scoundral who should be put in a black hole and left to rot, as much as i feel fir my felliw greeks i am proud they did not sell their soul to the devil..although being a greek myself i see where you are coming from..mr Sorros give me the money and here is an IOU and then he can wait gor a blue moon lol..

  4. I;m just trying to understand what the “evil man” would ask…

  5. Your soul, and then some… I’m sure you’ve read Faust… But you are right KTG, I do agree with you. Take the fuel, and let’s worry about not giving him what he wants afterwards.

  6. KTG, that certainly is the question..but let me put it this way for you about this horiible toad of a man..in the movie the Godfather, what did the Don always say after he expressed generosity or a favour or even helped someone? Hecalways finished with an open ended, no time limit line by saying “A day may come when i may need to call upon you firca favour” who would ever want to be obligated to a piece of scum like Sorros..ge may not want something from the people directly but he may want something from them indirectly through Naousas leading political party..heres heating oil fir your citizens Mr Mayor, i will be back some day when i need some red tape to disapear for whatever i may need to do or want on your soverign land..nothing is for free when it comes to these pigmen who call themselves elites..a poor man will feed you with his last measured limited food and give you a bed to sleep in out of the goodness of their heart and expect nothing in return..thats the difference here..

  7. Undoutedbly, Greece is populated with very suspicious people who jump at their own shadow. Poor Children in Nauossa won’t be able to keep warm in their classroom because of Aliens from outerspace (i.e. Mr. SOROS) charity doing a good deed that somehow the tin foil hat wearing people of Naoussa believe (LOL) that it’s SOME sort of conspiracy ploy. NOTE TO NAOUSSA PTA: In most western countries, charities operate on behalf of billionaires and give money to numerous needy people, regardless of political view. So, Greece may be the country of anicents and pride, but certainly some people are still living in that ancient mentality while their children go cold due to nonsensical beliefs

  8. tin foil hat won’t help here, therefore…
    PS charity is welcome as long as one does not know the donor
