    [03] Greek church head says terrorists untypical of Islam

    30/09/2001 17:48:19

    Archbishop Christodoulos of Athens and All Greece said on Sunday that terrorists claiming to represent Islam were not typical of the faith.

    "This is not the (true) picture of Islam, the one that appears on the face of a terrorist," Christodoulos told churchgoers in the Athens suburb of Aghii Anargyri.

    "We must not allow ourselves to harbour hatred or even suspicion for the entire Moslem world, the overwhelming majority of which is moderate," the archbishop said.

    [07] Main opposition leader says party ready for early elections

    30/09/2001 16:04:29

    The leader of the main opposition New Democracy party said on Sunday that his party was ready if the government were to call early national elections.

    In a news conference in the northern port city of Thessaloniki, Karamanlis also criticised the government for the way it had handled the economy, especially the stock market and reform of the social insurance system.

    In addition, he underlined the need for transparency in public life and sound management of public money.

    Finally, Karamanlis complained of delays in carrying out projects linked to the 2004 Athens Olympics and skyrocking costs. He also urged the government to adopt any measures proposed by international organisations to ensure security at the Games.

    On Saturday, Karamanlis made the main opposition leader's traditional annual speech at the Thessaloniki International Trade Fair.

    The speech and news conference the next day were postponed from September 15 when the ND leader was stranded in the US in the wake of terrorist attacks in New York and Washington several days earlier.
