Berkley Stands with Greece on Decision to Block Gaza Flotilla Effort

Press Release

Location: Las Vegas, NV

Congresswoman Shelley Berkley today praised the efforts of the Greek government to promote peace by preventing the advancement of an illegal "flotilla" seeking to breach Israel's legal Gaza blockade. Berkley's statement appears below:

"I want to thank the government of Greece for its courage in the face of extraordinary pressure in helping to stop an act of reckless and potentially dangerous international provocation. The world community must recognize that these 'flotillas' are nothing more than an attempt to embarrass Israel while helping Hamas, a terrorist organization. They harm the cause of peace in the Middle East and make negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority even more difficult. The Greek government has shown great strength and courage and has unequivocally stated that they will not be a party to such efforts. As the granddaughter of Greek immigrants to the United States, I am particularly proud of my Greek-American heritage and I applaud this courageous effort in support of peace. I look forward to continuing our close relationship as we work together with Greece to advance peace in the region and stop extremists out to push their own hateful agendas."
