José Maria Aznar, former prime minister of Spain, published an opinion article with the London
Times Thursday saying the world must support Israel because "if it goes down, we all go down".
Aznar, who has joined the 'Friends of Israel' campaign to which David Trimble, a foreign observer
taking part in Israel's flotilla raid probe, also belongs, calls on Europe to refuse to put up with cries
to eliminate Israel as part of global Christian-Jewish cooperation.
"Anger over Gaza is a distraction. We cannot forget that Israel is the West’s best ally in a turbulent
region," Aznar writes of the IDF's calamitous raid on a flotilla bound for Gaza on May 31.
"In an ideal world, the assault by Israeli commandos on the 'Mavi Marmara' would not have ended
up with nine dead and a score wounded. In an ideal world, the soldiers would have been peacefully welcomed on to the ship."
Aznar also criticizes Turkey, to which the Marmara belonged, for placing Israel "in an impossible situation" in which it would have to either give up its security or face world condemnation.
