Israel came a step closer to full participation at the United Nations when Spain dropped its objections to letting the Jewish state join the European regional bloc at the world body. Spain became the last E.U. country to drop its objections, Vice President Al Gore told Jewish leaders. The process of having Israel become a member of the U.N.’s Western European and Others Group will still take some time because there are still other nations, including Canada, New Zealand and Malta, that have to weigh in.
