24. I don't think countries have "rights" the way human beings do.

I'm a firm believer in Realpolitik - Helmut Schmidt is my copilot and all that.

Israel exists. That is a fact. There are almost 7 million Jewish people living there, and they're not going anywhere. Whether Israel has a "right" to exist doesn't enter the equation - it exists, and that's that.

There are almost as many Palestinians living in Israel and the occupied territories. They're not going anywhere, either.

I agree that we should support Israel, but the rights go to the people.
