    Greeks (with a Jewish belief) have as much choic e as other fellow Greeks... not more, not less.... Every democratic society has extremist view expressed and Greece is no exception. If you cast to one side the two polar extremes (in terms of political idelology), you are left with the two centre parities that have traditionally enjoyed 80% of the Greek popular vote. Therefore, Greeks (of a Jewish belief) can feel comfortable in giving their vote to the New Domecracy party, to the PASOK party, or to any other smaller party of their choice except the two extreme parties mentioned. Therefore, your reference to being trapped 'between a rock and hard place' is not relevant - it's sensationalist and propagandist aimed at painting the Jews in Greece as victims once again. They are no more victims then any other minority groups! Also, one needs to distingusih between views that may be deemed as anti Israeli-establishment (such as anti israel government) than view that those that may directed again a group of people due to religious and other beliefs. Please do not paint the Jews in Greece as victims in these contemporary times. The Greek state and Greece's law do not discriminate against Israel and the Jews of the world. If theyre are anti-semetic views held amongst some quarters of the population, these are not representative of the Greek populace as a whole. Finally, the Greek state and Greeks by and large respect the national sovereignty and dignity of the Jews. Relations between Greece and Israel have never been stronger and are destined to blossom further in the future.
