Afghanistan opens to Israel

Last Tuesday Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai expressed appreciation for Israel unilateral withdrawal from Gaza and, answering a question of a Radio Free Europe reporter, said: “although it will be up to Parliament to decide, if the Israeli government recognizes a Palestinian State Afghanistan will have no problems in establishing relations with Israel.

This statement, revolutionary for Afghanistan, follows similar recent openings by other Islamic countries, the latest being Pakistan.
