Israel Excluded from NATO Summit at Turkey’s Request; Pakistan Invited

While Pakistan has been invited to the NATO summit in Chicago next week, Israel has been left out, at the request of Turkey, according to Reuters.

Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari has not yet responded to the invitation.

Israel, NATO’s most dependable Middle East ally in the war against terrorism, did not even an invitation to the summit, because, as a NATO officials stated, Israel does not partake in primary NATO missions.

Other reports suggest that Israel was not invited because NATO member Turkey’s objection.

A GOP foreign policy analyst condemned NATO officials for mistreating Israel while inviting Pakistan, which has been a haven for terrorists in recent years.

“It’s a sad day when the same military alliance formed out of the ashes of the Holocaust, which pledged to the world ‘Never Again,’ shuns the democratic State of Israel while welcoming a nation that supports terrorist groups responsible for murdering NATO soldiers,” said the source. “With a single phone call, President Obama could make sure Israel gets an invitation to attend the NATO summit in Chicago as a NATO partner observer. His unwillingness to stand up for Israel inside the NATO council is very telling.”

One Response to “Israel Excluded from NATO Summit at Turkey’s Request; Pakistan Invited”

  1. I don't think Zardari was invited because he was wanted, he was invited to put pressure on him. And since Israel is not a NATO member or has asked to join NATO then it is understandable. Karsi's country was the main subject so it is understandable why he was invited. And let's face the facts, someone would have made an issue of your presence, even unrightfully so. Sometimes it's just best to let it be. 2013 will bring a U.S. administration back to office that will support the people od Israel.
