Israel accused of taking advantage of Greece's economic plight

A Canadian useful idiot who is part of the flotilla contingent has accused Israel of taking advantage of Greece's economic situation to convince the Greeks to prevent the flotilla of fools from leaving for Gaza.
Jewish-Canadian Dilan Kenner, claimed that Greece is operating in Israel's favor as a result of economic pressure Jerusalem placed on Athens due to the current financial crisis in the country, according to the report.


The Canadian ship Tahrir was stopped on Monday, five kilometers from its anchoring point in Greece. Kenner explained that the Greek coast guard intercepted the ship fifteen minutes after it departed. Authorities boarded the ship and towed it back to Cyprus. Kenner claimed that the move was a clear act of trespassing which the Greeks had no right to carry out.

The Israeli government, utilizing "economic extortion," pressured the Greek government to widen the illegal blockade of Gaza to Greek ports, Kenner explained.

Kenner said that the widening of the Gaza blockade has begun to affect human rights of those living outside of Gaza. This is something that should worry Israelis, Canadians and people from all over the world, he told Army Radio.

Kenner maintained that the interception was unjustified. The activists made their non-violent intention clear from the beginning, Kenner explained. He said that a number of activists tried to block the Greeks but did not use violence. The inception was a clear violation of activist's rights even though no one was injured, Kenner said.
I don't see how Israel could bring economic pressure to bear on Greece (at least not directly). We carry no weight in the IMF or with the World Bank. We're not an economic superpower - we belong neither to the G-8 nor to the G-20, although we do belong to the OECD.

Israel's relations with Greece have become much closer since the break in relations with Turkey in the wake of last year's flotilla of fools. Both Cyprus and Lebanon have banned ships from sailing directly to Gaza from their ports, and the Free Gaza movement closed its offices in Cyprus as a result. Why did these people ever think that the Greeks would allow them to sail to Gaza from its ports? Did they even ask, or did they assume that the whole world is against Israel and that therefore they can do whatever they want?

Please don't call them, "useful idiots", they are anything but, and certainly not idiots.

Its old-fashioned anti-Semitism. Reflected in the meme the Jews run the world.

Any one with critical thinking skills would realize if the Jews were that powerful, there wouldn't be a flotilla or heck a flytilla!

This accusation's a Lazy Man's bigotry. Its not even true!

Leftie JINOs know what the world's problem is, it's the jooz (JINOs, of course, aren't those guys). The jooz have branched out from ZOG here in the states to--plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose--WOG. The JINOs, from this Kenner feller to the savant of Aspen, thumbsucker יוצא מן הכלל Friedman, are waking up to the terror of the World Occupation Government.

The guy's name is PENNER not Kenner - stupid Jerusalem Kost!

The video of him saying this is here:

(Rabble.ca is a Canadian far-left site, I believe run by another Jew, Judy Rebick.)

Penner seems to be employed by the left wing think tank "Council for Canadians." I suppose they were only too happy to give him time off for his jaunt to Greece.
