    Bravo to Spain, and bravo to Trinidad Jiménez. Although it was self-evident in 1948, the delegitimization of Israel as the Jewish state by a relentless onslaught of leftist, Arab and Muslim circles, now these parameters are clarly essential. If Spain can manage to lead the EU into this clear vision, and manage to influence the Quartet to do the same, it would be a big step forward for peace and a solution to end the conflict with Israel and Palestine, free and secure, living side by side. This may be the true beginning of the end of the conflict.
