Angelina Jolie has allegedly requested for a meeting with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras. It is not clear whether Tsipras will grant her an appointment as the Prime Minister is confronted with a huge government crisis, as his coalition government partner Panos Kammenos instists on the resignation of Migration Minister Yannis Mouzalas because the latter called FYROM “Macedonia”.

Jolie’s original plan was to visit the Greek island of Lesvos currently hosting some 5,000 refugees. The plan was modified for technical reasons.

At 5  p.m. Angelina Jolie met with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in his office.

    The USA can’t take refugees in as it is an illegal and racist state existing only temporarily on squatted areas where never was meant to be any state, applies for Asylum can only be made in reservations camps but guess they’re not able to take any before 300 millions European squatters go back to Europe.

  3. Hmm. The last time AJ had anything to do with Greece [Brad Pitt & AJ support Greece!] was the day before Tsipras’ government capitulated in July. No follow up comment, maybe they lost interest. And the time before was also simultaneous with something not good though I can’t remember..I see her as a Bad Luck charm :((

  4. Her acting skills entails having the mother of Alexander the Great and a Russian spy have the same accent. She directed a (flopped) movie about a rape-love story (!) in Bosnia demonizing the Serbs. When she was asked if she would make a movie about the almost 1 million Serb refugees of the wars in Yugoslavia (after all she is ambassador for UNHCR) she said it was up to others to do that. These Hollywood stars are selective in their cause.
