GREECE WHINES ABOUT TURN ABOUT IS FAIR PLAY-Greece Alerts Its Tankers In Gulf After Iran Threatens More ‘Retaliation’ Seizures

Matthew 7:12
12 “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

Luke 6:31
31 And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.

“He who lays down with dogs gets up with fleas!”

The government of Greece has issued an alert warning all Greek ships currently sailing in Persian Gulf waters to adapt and remain aware of heightened threats against them following last week’s seizure of two Greek oil tankers by Iran’s military. Maritime tanker monitors suggest at least a dozen Greek tankers are currently in waters near Iran.

The alert told vessels to immediately “adapt to the unacceptable situation and reality created by the Iranian government’s tactic,” according government spokesman Ioannis Oikonomou at a Monday press briefing in Athens, per Bloomberg reporting.

Tasnim news agency over the weekend threatened that 17 other Greek-flagged tankers in the Persian Gulf risk seizure by the Islamic Republic as further retaliation for the US stealing Iranian oil in the Mediterranean when a Russian-flag tanker carrying Iranian crude was recently seized off Greece.

“The vessels were seized a day after Athens assisted the United States in seizing an Iranian oil tanker over alleged sanctions violations,” RFERL reported. And Politico noted:

Nour News, a website close to Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, had warned earlier on Friday that Tehran planned to take “punitive action” over Greece assisting the U.S.
