Paul Wolfowitz - Assistant Secretary of Defense - has even stronger family connections to Israel than previously know. He was asked in a recent interview about his sister who lives in Jerusalem:
Q (Baltimore Sun reporter): Do you have a sister living in Israel?
Wolfowitz: I do, yeah.
Q: Has that affected your dealing with the current conflict, or have you been concerned about her safety or
Wolfowitz: I'm obviously concerned about her, but I'm amazed at how calm she is. I think the main thing is sort of, it's really brought home to me how deeply the Israelis really want peace. She has her own political view which I'll leave to herself, but [Laughter]
Q: Are they different than yours?
Wolfowitz: No, no. But they are an interesting window on Israeli politics, that's all.
