Above: The Hellenic (Greek) Parthenon Marbles - STOLEN By British Thugs

Definition of Theft, as laid down in the Theft Act 1968 enacted by the British Parliament.
: Dishonest Appropriation of Goods Belonging to Another with the Intention of Permanently Depriving the Other (the owner) of it. 1b --> 1a --> --> 2b --> 3b --> 2a
ACTUS REUS ELEMENTS (2): (1a) Appropriation of Goods, (2a) Permanently Deprive
MENS REA ELEMENTS (3): (1b)Dishonest, (2b)Belonging to Another (3b)Intention

(Mens Rea: 1b)

The element of Mens Rea (latin), or 'guilty mind'. The British were and still are dishonest in appropriating the marbles of Parthenon, since they did not ask the Greeks for any permission to appropriate them. Instead they asked permission to unlawfully extract the Greek Marbles from Parthenon from another GRAND THIEF: The Turkish Ottoman occupation forces that occupied Greece for 400 years (1453-1821). Therefore one dishonest thief (the British) asks another Grand Dishonest Thief (the Ottoman Turks), whether it would be "ok" to steal the Hellenic (Greek) Marbles!

Appropriation of Goods
(Actus Reus: 1a)






belonging to another,
(Mens Rea: 2b)

The British appropriated the Parthenon Marbles out of Parthenon during the Ottoman occupation of Hellas (Greece) with the pretext of "saving" them. If that was the case then why did they extract only portions of a single scene, by cutting and effectively destroying them? Further, the British further destroyed the Hellenic (Greek) marbles when they used steel skives to "clean" them, but instead they drew lines on them!
The British were not dishonest only when they unlawfully appropriated the Hellenic (Greek) marbles from Parthenon Hellas (Greece) in the early 1800's. They prove with their childish excuses, absurd arguments, and manipulative machinations that they still think that they can undermine our IQ, and bluntly continue to be dishonest and a barbaric nation against the Hellenes (Greeks), even today, in the 21st century. This is exactly what the British were doing in the United States during the 1700's, employing the same attitude in dealing with the Greeks as they did in the 1700's when they were dealing with the Americans, that is, with lack of respect and an empty-founded arrogance.
Analysis: Definition of Theft, as laid down in the Theft Act 1968 enacted by the British Parliament.
The Parthenon Marbles belong to the Hellenic (Greek) people. They are the product of primary research of the Hellenic (Greek) mind, the Hellenic (Greek) art, intellect, architecture, sculpture, history, and religion. Nobody is ethically of lawfully permitted to tamper with the history of the Hellenic (Greek) nation, especially the barbaric British who have benefited so much from the Hellenes (Greeks). Hellas (Greece) has contributed 49,000 Hellenic (Greek) words to the English vocabulary. The British educational system is heavily influenced by the Hellenic (Greek) schools of thought of Athens. Moreover Hellenic (Greek) architecture has influenced all major public buildings in the United Kingdom. Finally, British poets and intellectuals like Lord Byron and Shakespeare were influenced and inspired by the Hellenes (Greeks) and their ever lasting struggles for Freedom and Democracy.

The Hellenic (Greek) nation has also shed whole streams of blood for the benefit of the British and of the Allies in both World Wars. During the First World War (WWI) Hellas (Greece) sided with the Allies assisting in the Middle East operations. The British "rewarded" the Hellenes (Greeks), as usual, by supporting and openly assisting the barbaric Turks in carrying out the second holocaust of the 20th century, the Genocide of  2,000,000 Greeks in Asia Minor. The first holocaust was carried out again by the Turks against the Armenians in 1915.
During the WWII Hellas (Greece) assisted the British and the Allies once more. Hellas (Greece) defeated the Italians after Benito Moussolini decided to attack Hellas (Greece) on October 28 1940 and provided the first victory of Allied forces against the Axis, thus boosting the moral tremendously. Hellas (Greece) also held the Germans back for 2 valuable months, thus delaying the German attack against Russia at least 6 months. This ended up in the defeat of the Germans in Stalingrad, and Moscow. The significant Hellenic (Greek) contribution during the WWII was recognized by both the defeated Germans (German Field Marshal Kaitel), as well as the victorious Russians (Comrade Joseph Stalin) who admitted that the Hellenes (Greeks) decided the fate of the Eastern Front with their spectacular resistance and fighting skills despite the fact they were outnumbered 9 to 1.

Winston Churchill, the prime minister of Great Britain at the Time quoted as saying: "The Greek heroism must once more show the way to the whole free world. From now on we will not only say that Greeks fight like heroes, but we will also say that Heroes fight like the Greeks." He also  promised to give Cyprus to Greece after the end of the war.

However, the British again "rewarded" Hellas (Greece) "appropriately". They never allowed ENOSIS (union) of Northern Epirus and Cyprus with motherland Greece and by employing their underground tactics of "divide and conquer" (see how much bloodshed they have caused during their withdrawal from India and Pakistan), they invited the Turks again to kill the Greeks on the island of Cyprus. This in essence, is the root of the problem that still exists today in Cyprus.

with the intention of
(Mens Rea: 3b)
The second element of Mens Rea (latin), or 'guilty mind'. The British have not shown any intention of returning the Hellenic (Greek) marbles back to Athens despite the fact that they have been asked to do so numerous times by the Hellenic (Greek) government, Hellenic (Greek) officials, as well as dignitaries, academicians and intellectuals from all around the world. The British were not even alerted by the Olympic Games in Athens 2004 and from the fact that Hellas (Greece) has constructed a specially designed museum to house and exhibit the Parthenon Marbles.

permanently depriving
(Actus Reus: 1a)
The fact that the British still deprive the Hellenes (Greeks) of the Parthenon marbles shows how cruel and barbaric they can be, and reminds the British rule of the US colonies where all rights were deprived from the Americans. Depriving one's goods is one thing, but depriving from the Hellenic (Greek) nation its culture and history with false pretexts is a disgrace to the whole civilized world. Greece is the birthplace of western civilization. It is therefore an obligation of every other nation that was benefited by the Hellenic (Greek) spirit to respect and honor the country who has offered so much in education, culture, medicine, architecture, and in arts and sciences in general, and still contributes to the world civilization today.

the other (the Greeks) from it.
(Actus Reus: 1a)
The Hellenes (Greeks) have been deprived of their liberty by barbaric nations surrounding them since the antiquity. They were mis-treated and even betrayed by their "friends" and "allies", (including NATO) many times. But the Hellenic (Greek) resilience and  perseverance is stronger than any other force on the face of the earth. The Hellenes (Greeks) as always remain examples to be followed. No retaliation and no ill-feelings for the British who just did not yet evolve. The Hellenes (Greeks) will always remind them though, their lack of humanitarianism, and lack of their own culture and intellect. The Hellenes (Greeks) understand that the British need a role model to follow, and what a better role model than Hellenic (Greek) architecture, arts, and sciences! The history says that all major achievements in human history were initiated in Hellas (Greece) and subsequently spread around the world. The British, by not returning the Hellenic (Greek) Parthenon Marbles back to Hellas (Greece) will only strengthen this historic lesson.
