AND EUROPE HATES THEM BOTH:

Poland interested in training its air force pilots in Israel (Yossi Melman, 3/29/07, Haaretz)

Poland is interested in training its air force pilots in Israel, the country's defense minister said this week. Aleksander Marek Szczyglo was here this week to sign an expanded military cooperation agreement with Israel.

"It's a practical agreement," Szczyglo stressed in an interview to Haaretz.

In 1994, after diplomatic relations were renewed between Israel and Poland, the countries signed a memorandum of understanding on defense cooperation. Szczyglo noted that the Polish Air Force had purchased F-16 fighter aircraft from the United States and was interested in training its pilots in Israel, where they could take advantage of the experience and reputation of the Israel Air Force.

Poland understands who will have its back, and who will not. Israel and the US are serious about defense, while Europe is only serious about appeasement.

Poland may be the new safe haven for conservatives.
