Since I spend far too much time following all sorts of folks who don't much like Israel, it's only fair to point out that some people actually do (like Israel). Jose Maria Aznar, for example, who was once the prime minister of Spain until he sided with Tony Blair and George Bush on some matter, and was booted out by his electorate for his efforts. Anyway, deep into retirement he is now trotting the globe touting his new organization, Friends of Israel. He seems to think there's a connection between Israel's legitimacy and well-being, and that of other places. How odd.
He even explained this at some length to the Haaretz person in Washington. More elbow power to him, I say.
