The Future of Greek-Israeli Relations

editor 12 April 2018

By Dr. George N. Tzogopoulos.. BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 788, April 8, 2018

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: In July 2010, then Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou visited Jerusalem and met his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu. A few weeks later Netanyahu traveled to Athens and held discussions with Papandreou. The long-term significance of those visits could not be acknowledged at that time. But almost eight years later, it is now clear that those talks were a catalyst for the rapprochement that has occurred between two countries that have had a difficult relationship for decades. Greece and Israel are growing ever closer by establishing a strategic partnership and exploring ways to further deepen it. [Photo top right: Benjamin Netanyahu and George Papandreou on a cruise near the isle of Poros, 17 August 2010, photo via Flickr CC].

The empty talk of two states

editor 12 March 2018

By Jonathan S. Tobin.. Time was, the endorsement of a two-state solution by the executive director of AIPAC wouldn’t have been news…writes Jonathan S. Tobin/JNS. But when Howard Kohr told those who gathered for the group’s annual conference on Monday (March 5, 2018) that the organization still believes in a vision of two states for two peoples, it was considered significant. Kohr understood that affirming the pro-Israel lobby’s stance in favor of what has long been considered the only rational solution to the conflict makes sense even if there is little reason to believe in the peace process right now.
