How Britain's Conservatives became unconditional supporters of Israel

Which famous British politician uttered these words about Israeli aggression: "You cannot be selective in your defence of law. You cannot say, ‘I like that law, I will uphold that one, I will not uphold the other'."

The answer is Margaret Thatcher, probably the most pro-Israel British prime minister of the 20th century. Yet, Thatcher did not hesitate to denounce the Israeli bombing of Iraq’s Osiraq nuclear reactor in June 1981. And during the Lebanon War in 1982, Thatcher imposed an arms embargo on Israel that lasted 12 years, until 1994.

She certainly admired Israel, but she believed that the country should adhere to basic moral standards and international law.
