Israel-Greece relations and common challenges

Athens and Jerusalem have had a complicated relationship, and not only in antiquity. Except for Cuba, Greece was the only non-Arab, non-Moslem member of the United Nations to vote against the establishment of the State of Israel in a partition of British Mandate’s Palestine. Later, the Greek-Israeli connection was overshadowed by the Ben Gurion doctrine of forging a regional alliance of countries such as Turkey with a Western orientation and in opposition to Arab leaders such as Egypt’s Nasser. But in recent years, it has changed to such an extent that the tables seem to have turned, with Turkey hostile towards Israel and Greece its warm friend and partner. Of course, it all has to do with the three E’s - Energy, Economy and Erdogan.
