Greek military relations with israel

Weapon transport from US via Greece to Israel stopped.

On January 7 2009 a message appeared on the internet that the US wants to ship extra weapons and ammunition to Israel through a Greek port. This is followed by an urgent call for action from Palestinians to the people in Greece to stop the ship.

The transport then is canncelled, although it remains unclear if this is due to the security situation in Gaza or to the risk of civil action in Greece. The destination of the transport by the way is not the Israeli army but the large US arms depot in Israel.
