Reader comment on item: Musharraf's Historic Speech

Submitted by Jaladhi (United States), Sep 27, 2005 at 18:04

Thanks for your post. The Arab states asked India to drop relations with Israel in exchange for their support for India's bid for UN Security Council seat. Amazing! These are the same Arab states that have never supported India on Kashmir issue in the UN. What audacity on their part.

Indian leaders had been kowtowing to them in hopes for their support on Kashmir to the point that India did not have good relations with Israel. Finally, Indian leaders saw the light and are doing what is best for India's national interests, that is improving relations wth Israel. Arabs have no business telling India with whom it can keep relations. Mind you, Indians have never asked Israel not to have relations with Pakistan or anybody else for that matter. Civilized nations do not follow that practice.

Mushy's overture to Jewish community, if he follows through, will be good for Israel. India would have no objection to that. However, Mushy's comments are purely political. His only objective is to prevent India and Israel getting closer. Can you believe he has suddenly developed love for the Jews - that will be against Islam. How will Pakistanis react to this lovefest with Jews remains to be seen.
