Spain’s former prime minister said Israel should become a member of NATO as a warning to Iran. If Israel becomes part of the Western alliance, Iran “will behave differently,” Jose Maria Aznar said at a conference organized Thursday by Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe, one of NATO’s two main military commands. Aznar is now a security analyst. In recent months, the president of Iran has alluded repeatedly to a desire to destroy Israel. NATO officials have said that the issue of Israel joining the alliance is not being considered right now.
