Pakistan president reaches out, Muslims miffed

Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, whose country has no official diplomatic ties with Israel, spoke before the American Jewish Congress Saturday night saying that "his country would take steps to build ties with Israel as the Middle East peace process progresses."

But that didn't satisfy the notoriously overly sensitive CAIR, Council on American-Islamic Relations:

“I strongly believe that there should be no relations with the state of Israel before a comprehensive peace settlement is established, which is satisfactory to Palestinians and after Israel adheres to all United Nations resolutions and international law,” said Nihad Awad, executive director of CAIR.

Yawn. Maybe if virtually every Muslim country didn't want to annihilate Israel 'ya just might get some of what you want, Awad. It gets tiresome. Now go complain about Burger King's ice cream wrappers, asshole.

And Musharraf had better be careful. Remember what happened to poor Anwar Sadat for his peace efforts with the Jewish state.
