Several top Greek-American leaders expressed their criticism with a paid advertisement in yesterday's "Washington Post", a response to an editorial in the same paper last week regarding urban terrorism in Greece.
"The allegation that Greek governments 'do not want to find' a repeat political killer is even more unreasonable...(as terrorists) killed a Greek Prime Minister's son-in-law," the paid opinion piece read.
"It took our (the US) government...18 years to find the 'Unabomber,' and then only when his brother turned him in...it does not mean that we 'do not want to find' the bomber," they added.
"Greece always has been there for the United States, for example, in WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm and even Bosnia and Kosovo - one of only seven nations, out of 191 in the world to do so. And, if we treat them right, Greece will always be there," the advertisement stated.
The article was signed by 24 Greek-American leaders and was addressed to the Washington Post and the US public.
