Israel’s Offer to Pakistan

We might not be at peace with each other, but that hasn’t stopped Israel from offering assistance to Pakistan, in the wake of the devastating earthquake that has so far killed approximately 30,000 people.

Israel has offered Pakistan assistance in the aftermath of a devastating earthquake that struck Pakistan, India and Afghanistan, Israeli officials said Sunday, as the death toll was estimated at more than 30,000.

 

Allowing Israelis into Pakistan to assist in the rescue efforts would the latest sign that relations between the two countries are warming.

 

Israel and Pakistan – the second-largest Muslim country – have no official relations, but the two countries’ foreign ministers met last month for the first time. 

 

“We’ve expressed a desire to help, and we’re hopeful that it will be possible to help,” said Mark Regev, a Foreign Ministry spokesman.

 

Israel – which has sent rescue teams to Turkey and Mexico to assist in evacuation efforts after earthquakes struck those countries – sent a message to Pakistan through “official channels” and the United Nations, said a senior government official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because Pakistan has yet to respond to the offer.

The question is will Pakistan accept our offer, or will they rather suffer than admit that the Jews aren’t so bad after all?
