    Because they never fought and, consequently, lost a war to it? ;-)

    Honestly, the only two Arab countries that have full diplomatic relations with Israel are Egypt and Jordan, both which have repeatedly tried and failed to destroy Israel. Egypt finally agreed to peace under American pressure and in order to get back the territories lost in wars. Fellow Arabs did not like it and banned it from the Arab League for almost two decades. The peace with Jordan is a by-product of the Oslo "peace process". But the relations are not friendly, actually the relations between Egypt and Israel closely resemble the Cold War. No other Arab country recognizes Israel, but some have low-level economic ties.

    Considering this, why should Pakistan recognize Israel and make enemies in the Arab world? Besides, the Pakistani regime is a very shaky one, under constant pressure from the Islamists and already much criticized because of being (or playing) American ally in the War on Terror. I guess President Musharraf cannot afford alienating more Muslims, inside and outside Pakistan.

    the objective of installation a state with a Jewish majority is to furnish a secure haven for Jews, that's because of the fact history has shown that Jews have been persecuted as a minority just about everywhere. To "stay among the individuals of all international locations" is a superb theory, yet sorry, been there, finished that. the assumption of a Jewish majority isn't a racist one, it quite is a reaction to anti-Jewish racism. Why do not YOU "stay among the individuals of all international locations"? And why do not you prefer to nicely known that the Arabs all started the violence against the Jews in 1920?

    One Arab country, Egypt, recognizes Israel not many. Israel now occupies more than 70% of the land that is between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea and when they were created they were given 50%. The following is a map of the settlements in Palestinian land http://www.mideastweb.org/map_israel_settlements.h... Remember the settlements are connected by roads and the Palestinians must go through check points to cross these roads and each point can take hours to pass if they are even allowed to pass. If you look at a map of each road it looks like a shattered windshield and if you have seen a check point you can understand why the Palestinians are pissed and why other Muslim countries demand change. Carter wrote a new book called “Peace not Apartheid” read it. He is the only president to broker a deal between the Israelis and a Muslim country and that country is Egypt.

    As Bibi once said:

    "There is a misconception out there, that most Islamic countries hate the West, because of Israel. But it is in fact the other way around! They hate Israel because of the West!"

    Pakistan should recognize Israel. They will only benefit from it. Their Government does not hate the West, therefore I don't see a reason for them not to like Israel.

    Sanctions imposed by the UN member states have shown that they never achieve the desired result. In the same way, I believe that by not recognizing Israel, we are simply letting possibly the best opportunity we have of influencing their actions go to waste. If the Muslim countries recognize Israel and start active trade with them, only then will Israel also have an interest in their betterment. As things stand, Israel simply follows its own agenda with US backing and commits atrocities on an unprecedented scale. Only by recognizing them and dealing with them can we influence them.

    And "wunderkin" please spare me the "Israel is about Peace!" game. if Israel is so peaceful, why has it occupied Palestinian lands since its inception in 1967?

    This is a reply to Ali S as well as to the person who posed the question above. Israel wants peace!!!!! They wanted to embrace the Arabs after they moved into their chosen land and if this had taken place both Arabs and Israelis would today be better off. No fences, no check points, no suicide bombings, Katusha rockets, etc. If the Arabs (Muslims) would show Israel that they wanted peace, in time everyone would benefit from this decision. However, with an active Hamas and Hezbollah there can be no peace. Israel must defend itself and will do so every time it is provoked. So on it goes. No peace. Pakistan should recognize Israel and try for harmony.

    as a Pakistani i think they should, but the problem is that its no secret that Israel commits atrocities in the middle east, they killed close to a thousand Lebanese for 2 captured soldiers, most of the the people they killed knew nothing of the kidnappings, all the people they displaced, houses they destroyed, it is not justified. Lebanon is actually an advanced wealthy nation, but thanks to the war they are spiraling downwards a civil war. Same thing with the Palestinians, civil war. That's why some countries refuse to recognize Israel, someone has to say No you're wrong, and thanks to the us the UN couldn't even condemn the 1996 qana massacre. Thus these countries have no representation in the UN, so the only thing the Muslim countries can do is not recognize Israel.

    hope that helped, some local views
