Greece plays
roller-coaster
diplomacy

MK THE GREETING

NEWS

Ancient Greece was a
land of paradox. It produced
- the first democratic con-
stituion in world history
and became the cradle of
1 . Western culture. It also
produced tyrants who im-
: posed Solon's democratic re-
forms that were intended to
prevent tyrany.
I experienced something
of that paradox as I visited
Greece last moth and
walked through the awe-
some shrines of Western
democracy.
The Hellenic contribution
to the Western ideals of
freedom, culture, and com-
merce were magnets that in
the centuries prior to World
War. H attracted some
80,000 Jews to that beauti-
ful country. They played a
vital role in all aspects of
the life of modern Greece.
Then the Nazis conquered
Greece, and destroyed 86
percent of the Greek Jewish
population, leaving some
6,000 Greek Jews alive to-
day.
Despite their small num-
bers, Greek Jews feel secure
in Greece and optimistic
about their future. But they
are deeply-troubled about
the zig-zags in Greece's re-
lations with Israel.
The- Greek government
apparently views itself as a
bridge between the West
and the Arab world, and in
recent years has intensively
cultivated diplomatic and
trade relations with Arab
countries, most recently
with anti-democratic Libya.
Greece is virtually depen-
dent on Arab oil and sells
about. 25 percent of its ex-
ports to the Arab and Mus-
lim countries.
But Greece is also dis-
enchanted with the Arabs
for not having made the
large investments in
Greece's economy as as they
had promised. Also, Saudi
Arabia and Morocco, among
other Moslem countries,
have taken Turkey's side in
the dispute over Cyprus.
In recent months, the
Papendreou government
has launched a discreet
campaign to improve its re-
lations with Israel and
American Jews. This turn-
around is an effort to win
the backing of the United
States and American Jews
in Greece's perennial strug-
gle with Turkey.
In 1982, the pro-Arab
stance of ,the Greek gov-
ernment, including the em-
brace of the PLO, triggered
off a spate of anti-Semitism
thattrightened Greek Jews.
And so, while welcoming
any inprovement of ties be-
tween Greece and Israel ,
world Jewry clearly will be
chary of that roller-coaster
diplomacy.
