"The Mediterranean landscape, the exuberance of the Israelis, the way politics is a matter of life and death there - all these things beguiled me." - Erica Jong, author.

"Wholly apart from my feelings as a Jew, strong support for Israel is the logical consequence of my political principles." - Barney Frank, U.S. Representative from Massachusetts.

Indeed, that may be what is both so inspiring and confounding about the existence of Israel." - Rabbi Lawrence Kushner. "Israel isn't a symbol.
