Pakistan: We Will Recognize Israel, But Not Yet

Pakistan will eventually have no choice other than to recognize Israel, but to do so now would undermine attempts to build bridges between Western and Muslim countries. That is the assessment of Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, who is continuing his highly publicized tour of the United States. Recognition of Israel at this stage would only anger those who believe Israel’s actions are deplorable, he said. His speeches in the U.S. to mark the publication of his book earlier this week have helped sales push it to no. 14 on the bestseller list.
