    There have been the US, Turkey as mediators between Israel-Palestinians and Israel-Syria. There were also countless direct talks between Israel and Arabs. But, all were useless and will be useless, because no side wants peace. Israel wants to continue building, it's interested in expanding. Palestinians are divided and and shattered. Third parties who claim to be mediators are only saying this as a useless talk to balance the situation between the sides. Greece for decades supported Arabs militarily, politically and financially. Now, it's seeing a chance to take Israel to Greek side against Turkey. But, not a very wise move as Israel will sell Greece more military equipment and anti-Turkish propaganda, and poor Greece will get even poorer by buying more weapons and drowning in debts. Turks won't get affected at all as Turks are building their own alliance circle in the Balkans and the Middle East. Turkey is taking over markets in these regions, forming pacts with Balkan and Middle Eastern states. Also Turks just made a pact today with ASEAN. If Greece is wise enough, they should make effort to improve relations with Turkey to decrease Greece's defense budget and to improve its economy. Buying weapons from Israel cannot improve already terribly troubled Greek economy.

Boycott is the only way to stop the Israeli occupation

Aluf Benn's proposal for Israel's left to establish a base of domestic support for its positions is hopeless considering the brainwashing and increasing extremism of our society.
