Greek teargas purchases probably not connected to flotilla of fools

Some pro-'Palestinian' twitterers made a big deal on Monday out of a story that had Greece buying a lot of teargas from Israeli last Thursday.
Greek Police, or ELAS, purchased more than 900 thousand euros worth of tear gas canisters and chemical grenades last Thursday, one day after violent rioting in the center of Athens, it was reported on Monday.

The chemicals, some 10,000 items according to a report posted on the tvxs website, were bought from Israel, France and the United States.

Athens first instance prosecutor Eleni Raikou has launched a probe following complaints by the head of the pharmacies’ union regarding the extensive use of tear gas in last week’s anti-austerity rally.
Even if the story is true, it seems that the targets for the teargas are the anti-austerity protesters and not the flotilla of fools.
