Athens. The project to build a mosque and the extreme right wing threats.

The fourth tender notice «announced by the Greek ministry of infrastructures to farm out the construction» of a mosque in Athens will be «exclusively reserved to big building firms» (ANSA).

Athens is «one of the few European capitals still devoid of a temple for its 300 thousands Muslim residents». The previous three announcements did not receive a real answer. In fact, «various businesses» decided not to run for «after having received threats by extreme right wing groups, like the filo-Nazi party Golden Dawn» (ibidem).
