1. Greece covers an area of around 51,000 square miles. If you take away the one square mile where there might be problems in Athens that leaves 50,999 left for you to enjoy the peace, the history & the beauty.
2. Greece has a population of around 11 million people. If you take away the minority of troublemakers that still leaves 10 million plus - most of whom will welcome you with a smile & traditional warmth & hospitality.
3. As with the 9/11 terrorists we, the majority, should resist intimidation by a miniscule minority who would try to prevent us leading our lives in a way that we choose.
Greece & Greek people need our support in these difficult times - we have all taken so much enjoyment from visits there that it is time to give something back. I can understand families with young children now being apprehensive about staying in Athens but hey! there is so much more to Greece & Athens will be there for you another year. Try somewhere different! It is a big country.Edited: 05 May 2010, 17:42
