Forty members of the U.S. Congress wrote NATO’s secretary-general in support of expanding the NATO-Israel relationship. The letter sent Monday to Jaap de Hoop Scheffer praised the increased military cooperation between NATO and Israel. “The Israel Defense Forces are highly capable, professional and modern, and can contribute much to the Alliance in operational experience, specialized tactics and techniques, and intelligence,” said the letter, initiated by Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-N.Y.) and signed by a bipartisan slate of lawmakers.
