O Ancient immortal Spirit...

      ...pure father

Of beauty, of greatness and of truth,
Descend, reveal yourself and flash like lightning here,
within the glory of your own earth and sky.
At running and at wrestling and at throwing,

Shine in the momentum of noble contests,
And crown with the unfading branch
And make the body worthy and ironlike. 
Plains, mountains and seas glow with you
Like a white-and-purple great temple,
And hurries every nation,
at the temple here, your pilgrim,
O Ancient immortal Spirit. 

The Olympic Anthem, with lyrics by Greek poet Kostis Palamas.

I was wandering whether I am the only one that is sick and tired of watching dozens of africans disguised as british, participating at the olympics under the flag of great britain. There's nothing too humiliating in the pursuit of some more medals.
This is not anything new, of course. It's a common practise. 
What bothers me the most is that at the same time, the british prime minister threatens to close the country's borders to the greeks seeking job in england. 
It makes sense... greeks are not black, they cannot run extremely fast, jump high and far or throw stuff in great distance. They are just citizens of united (ha ha) europe, trying to find job in one of the countries that are ruining theirs, each and every day.Thus, they are a nuisance.

Here's to the death of europe.

Your pillars are colapsing...

The earth is trembling...
