The Atlantic Forum of Israel helped organize a visit early last week, Sunday October 21, 2007, with newly appointed NATO Deputy Secretary-General Claudio Bisogniero. Bisogniero and Livni addressed the second annual “NATO Israel Symposium” at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya on Monday night. The growing partnership between a newly transformed NATO in the Middle East is bridging a stronger partnership between Israel and its western military allies. Marking the first anniversary of Israel's Individual Cooperation Program with NATO, although not becoming a full member, Livni say’s, “This is not a shotgun marriage”.

I quite agree with Livni. I’m sure this is not. Still considered officially “newlyweds” in regards to their official public NATO nuptials, the honeymoon is just beginning. I guess its time for the groom NATO to change its old bachelor ways and step in line with the misses. A happy wife, is a happy house. I wonder how many more old friends the groom is going to have to part with. Either way the transformation of NATO continues, so lets keep sifting through the news.
