Also, it's interesting that Nixon had more understanding of the need to help Israel than Kissinger did.
Six months later, during the Yom Kippur War, Nixon rejected Kissingers advice to delay an arms airlift to Israel as a means of setting the stage for an Egypt confident enough to pursue peace; Nixon, among other reasons, cited Israels urgent need.
Not that Kissinger was all that brutal a guy, but he clearly thought of national interests as overwhelmingly pre-eminent, and that individual interests were only of secondary concern to be dealt with at leisure later on ~ like when there was leisure.
You've got to learn to take these guys as they come and examine them within the context of their time.
BTW, people who don't think Nixon was Conservative enough to meet our modern standards, just remember that the pukes who are attacking the Palin children are the same crowd who attacked Nixon.
