Israel President Shimon Peres congratulated Pervez Musharraf on winning Presidential elections. This is the first time that Israel issued public statement showing their good friendly intentions. President Peres should know that everybody in the world wants peace in Middle East and this include Hamas, Hizbollah and Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, UAE, Pakistan and all the other Muslim countries..
|Israel congratulated Pervez Musharraf on his re-election as president of Pakistan.President Shimon Peres on Monday published an open letter to Musharraf, a former general who seized power in 1999 and swept to a second term in elections over the weekend.Peres noted that although Islamabad and Jerusalem do not have formal ties, Musharraf has voiced interest in Israeli-Arab peace efforts. Musharraf is an ally of the Bush administration.“You have shown responsibility and strength in preventing the spread of violence and terrorism on many occasions, and I carry in my heart your support for peace in the Middle East,” Peres wrote. “Please accept, Your Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.”
The Israeli and Pakistani foreign ministers held surprise talks in 2005, but Pakistan has said it will withhold full recognition of the Jewish state until a Palestinian state is founded.
Peres statement is the first positive step towards peace. The Israeli government has to work hard towards achieving peace by just opening their minds and hearts and accepting that their policies of aggression and oppression were wrong. These policies did not bring any peace and stability from last 60 years and these policies can’t bring peace in the next 100 years. The confrontation will cause death and destruction on both sides.
The Peres know that Ahmadinejad can’t destroy Israel, the fact is that Israel can destroy all the neighboring countries with its WMD. It is in the best interest of the Israel to solve Palestine issue as quickly as possible which will bring peace stability prosperity for Israel and Middle East. The peace treaty giving Palestinians will also destroy Al Qaida without firing a single shot. Al Qaida and terrorism is growing due to wrong policies of US and Israel. Fighting war on terror will keep growing with Bush policy of invasions and occupations.
