El Al flight in Greece delayed by protest....

Gee, given the problems of Greece, you'd think these workers might want to find work in Israel..
An El Al flight bound for Israel from Athens, Greece was delayed for about two hours at Athens International Airport Wednesday after protesters against the blockade of Gaza blocked check-in counters, airport officials said.

Members of a Communist-backed labor union said they blocked five El Al airline counters for two hours to protest the Israeli blockade of Gaza and the Jewish state's "oppressive policies."

"This was an action taken in solidarity with the Palestinian people and their effort to establish a Palestinian state," union spokesman Giorgos Pontikos told the AP.

He said police were present at the protest but did not intervene.

El Al representatives decided to stop check-in efforts for the flight yet once the protest ended, check-in procedures continued.
