Theodoros Pangalos, Member of Parliament (Greece), is a big Greek socialist, returned gift and thanked the Ambassador of Israel...

The embassy of Israel sent in Theodoros Pangalos, Member of Parliament (Greece), three bottles wine as gift of feasts with the wishes of Ambassador Ali Giachia.
Theodoros Pangalos returned this gift and thanked the Ambassador with the following letter:
Dear Mr. Ambassador,
Thank you for the 3 bottles of wine that you sent me as season’s greetings. I wish to you, your family and everybody in the Embassy a happy new year. Good health and progress to you all.
Unhappily I noticed that the wine you have sent me has been produced in the Golan Heights. I have been taught since I was very young not to steel and not to accept products of theft. So I can not possibly accept this gift and I must return it back to you.
As you know, your country occupies illegally the Golan Heights who belong to Syria, according to the International Law and numerous decisions of the International Community.
I take the opportunity to express my hope that Israel will find security into its internationally recognized borders and the terrorist activities against Israel territory by Hamas or anybody else will be contained and made impossible, but I also hope that your government will cease practicing the policy of collective punishment which was applied on a mass scale by Hitler and his armies.
Actions such as those of these days of the Israel military in Gaza remind the greek people holocausts such as in Kalavrita or Doxato or Distomo and certainly in the ghetto of Warsaw.With these thoughts allow me to express to you my best wishes for you, the Israeli people and all the people of our region of the world.

Bravo, to Mr. Pangalos! His words brought a spark of hope to 2009. His actions are remarkable and brave. I wish there were more people like him...perhaps there are, but I haven't heard about them yet! Thank you for posting the letter!

I reserve no compliments for the attitude of Mr. Pangalos.

Leaving aside the fact that he would accept and cheerfully consume bottles of Israeli wine for years, his recent vociferous statement is a neat proof that he uses the Arab-Israeli conflict as a tool to create impressions before the eyes of his voters, unwilling or unable to grasp why Israel had to invade and annex the Golan Heights back then.

If we agree that the Golan hights are occupied areas, then that offical from the embassy sholdn't have used things that caries it's name which reflects on thier determination to annex it from day 1.

I think what he did is a god reminder that we prevail when we have principles to defend and admire.

Of course the permanent hasbara volonteer would question Mr. Pangalos' motives. I hope more people will show his courage. Thank you Mr. Pangalos and bless Greece.

Thank you Mr Mr. Pangalos for standing up and be counted against those vilotaling international laws with the complicity of the US.
