My Mideast Punchlines: it’s all Greek to me….

Greece’s ambassador to Israel explained to the Times of Israel why his country’s new leftist government shouldn’t raise Israeli angst. There are several indications that Jerusalem has no need to worry, he added. For one, politicians act differently once they are in charge of running a country. “It’s a party that has [entered] the government, therefore [party leaders might become] much more responsible and careful in the policies they are about to advocate.” Secondly, the diplomat said, Syriza’s junior coalition partner is “very well-known for its pro-Israeli attitudes.”

Small FistYou can already guess my reaction to this sort of spin. Beware of Greeks bearing gifts.
