Israel To Join British Commonwealth?

Although being occupied by England was not a fun memory for the kosher state, it looks like that previous relationship has resulted in one benefit for the country.

( As a former British colony, Israel is being considered for Commonwealth membership. [...]

Speaking on condition of anonymity, diplomats said those interested in applying include Israel and the Palestinian Authority, both of which exist on land ruled by a British Mandate from 1918 to 1948.

Being a member of the commonwealth means Israel will receive extra benefits in trade and commerce, something that will benefit Israel overall (if they are selected that is). Although the UK and Israel don't exactly have the best relationship, this new move by England could open the door towards friendlier relations.
