Greek Ambassador Rejects Boycott of Israel

Greece’s Ambassador to Israel Ambassador Spyridon Lampridis said Wednesday that the European Union is a friend of Israel and that  Greece will make sure the EU does not boycott or isolate the country, despite differences of opinion.

He told Israel radio that Greece will do everything it can to prevent a diplomatic fight between Israel and the European Union with weapons such as labeling products with a stamp that make Israel look illegitimate.

“We give 100 percent seaport to the initiative of  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and do not see any confrontation on the horizon,” he stated.

The remarks from an official from Greece, a close friend of Israel, normally could be discarded as being insignificant except that Greece for the next six months is the rotational president of the European Union.

Israeli media reported on Tuesday that Kerry is behind efforts to boycott Israel, a weapon that could be unleashed if Israel does not accept his demands for creating the Palestinian Authority as a new Arab country.

  1. Len Minowitz says:

    Good for you. That’s a man with guts and understanding.

  2. If Kerry is behind boycott efforts, he should be charged with treason for aiding known enemies of the US.

  3. Terry Beals says:

    Thank you, Greece. I think the United States should have a rotation of presidents. Things would probably go a lot smoother. Rotate every year and we may as well include Congress while we're at it. "Professional" politicians have become the ruin of the nation and we are crumbling within like the Roman Empire did.
