Dozens of Egyptians living in Greece were attacked by members of the Neo-Nazi Party in what is seen as an act of racism against them.
“Egyptians are subjected to racist attacks almost on daily basis in a number of Greek cities,” Tarek Nagati, a member of the Egyptian community in Greece, was quoted as saying Tuesday by the Egyptian newspaper al-Youm al-Sabea.
According to Nagati, Egyptians are the victims of several murder attempts across Greece and their properties are constantly looted.
Several activists from the Egyptian community in Greece have posted on the social networking website Facebook photos that document discriminatory practices against Egyptians living there, many of which features brutal beating and further violence across several Greek towns.
The paper published a list of the names of Egyptians who have been subjected to attacks, whether by Neo-Nazis or others.
Mohamed Salam, 31, was brutally beaten by his employer until he suffered internal bleeding in the brain. This caused the blockage of the coronary artery and halted his blood flow to the brain.
Momtaz Moheb suffered bruises, deep cuts, and concussion after a group of Greeks attacked him in the city of Kallithea in southern Greece while another attack on Beshoy Nathan in the same city left him with injuries in the hand and a fractured nose.
Activists who have been working on documenting the abuses to which Egyptians are subjected also said that the Greek police turns a blind eye to those crimes.
