Pakistan should consider establishing ties with Israel, said exiled former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, remarks likely to anger many in the Muslim-majority country where he hopes to make a political comeback.

Musharraf, who resigned in 2008 in disgrace, has said he plans to return to Pakistan this month, despite possible arrest, in order to participate in a parliamentary election due by 2013. …

Speaking in favor of relations with Israel could make Musharraf more unpopular, especially among militants who made several attempts on his life with bombings because of his support for the U.S. "war on terror" following the 9/11 attacks.

Those same groups want the destruction of Israel. …

"There is nothing to lose by trying to get on Israel's good side," Musharraf, a former army chief, told the liberal Israeli newspaper Haaretz in an interview carried on its website.

"Pakistan also needs to keep readjusting its diplomatic stand toward Israel based on the mere fact that it exists and is not going away." …

Makes no sense since Israel & India are already cooperating on military and technological projects.

Muzzies will never make peace with the Jews. It’s in their corrupted inbred DNA and it’s in their phony baloney Koran.

Thanks Olog-hai.

He wants his old job back.

Pakistan hate “yahuds”(Jews) more they they hate “hanoods”(Hindus).

Remember what they did to Daniel Perl because he was a Jew?

A very popular Urdu slogan in Pakistan......
“Mussalman-Mussalman kar le eka,
Na rahega Israel, na rahega Amrika”
(If Muslims of the world unite,
there will be no Israel, there will be no America”

Pakistan wants to make friends with Israel only to create a wedge between India and Israel. Pakistan has really nothing else to offer. Even Pakistan's old friends like Saudis, Iranians and Turks don't trust them, let alone US & UK. Israel will be wise not to take that bait.

He must be the founding member of the Suicide Party. Suicide bombs, suicidal platforms, suicidal moves.
