Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's not only the protesters on the street that are whipping out the Nazi card.

"I do not accept having my country taunted by Mr (Wolfgang) Schaeuble, as a Greek I do not accept it," President Carolos Papoulias said during a visit to the defence ministry.

"Who is Mr Schaeuble to taunt Greece? Who are the Dutch? Who are the Finns?" the 82-year-old head of state said.

"We always had the pride to defend not only our freedom, but also that of Europe," said Papoulias, a former youth resistance fighter during Greece's wartime occupation by Nazi Germany who later studied law in Munich and Cologne.

Seems like things are coming to a head.
