Behind making of the enemy: Pakistan and Israel


- Advertisment -

Pakistan senator Raja Zafar-ul-Haq shocked the entire world media by quoting “that Pakistan Army’s commandos from special service group (SSG) were stationed and operating in Palestine to train Hamas militia against the Israel attacks”. He openly shares his past meetings with the former Yasser Arafat party leader and fighter Abu Jihad and said ‘Pakistan has a permanent unit stationed in Gaza to assist Hamas fighters in fighting against Israel’.

The top diplomat of Pakistan has held important positions in the Zia-ul-Haq-led government. He is still considered one of the premiere politicians in Pakistan today. He is the acting chairperson of the Pakistan Muslim League (N).

Since the ex-ambassador to Egypt dropped a pin in the already vulnerable geopolitical and fragile democracy, many news media outlets have reported this issue. However, the Pakistani premiere or any other diplomat or political party has not confirmed or issued any statement pertaining to the views expressed by the ambassador.

This statement could bring serious implications for the future of the political setup in Pakistan if the said statement proves to be true, but so far, no major outcry has been expressed by any major nation.

Remember the said statement has come after Palestine and Israel announced a ceasefire after 10 days of fighting last month, which was brokered by Egypt after the intense clashes had led to fighting between Hamas and IDF, in which Hamas claimed the victory despite suffering exponential losses in terms of both human lives and infrastructure.

The claims made by the Pakistani diplomat could further stir the controversy in already terrible relations between the two countries and there may be an international backlash following the statement. Pakistan has no bilateral relations with Israel, as the country does not recognize the existence of Israel as a State. However, the alleged involvement in recent escalations between Israel and Hamas may have some serious implications for Pakistan.

Earlier Mention:

Turkey and Pakistan had called for the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), led by Saudi Arabia, to form an alliance to create a special force for Gaza, which Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan called the Al-Quads force just to protect the Al-Aqsa mosque from Israeli Occupation and to safeguard the mosque.

The aspirations of both leaders, Tayyip Erdogan and Imran Khan, were also felt at the United Nations General Assembly as both made very strong references against the brutal occupation by Israel of Palestine and the Gaza strip.


Nations evolve, their relations change and so does their diplomacy and alliances. No nation in the world looks beyond their national interest in the present world order as old alliances have broken and new ones are taking shape.
