Reports this week indicated that the Taliban are ready to turn over a new leaf in relations with the world. They are willing to work with the US, which fought a twenty-year war in Afghanistan against them, and they are willing to have relations with India, or any other country. But there is one country they apparently won’t consider having relations with: Israel.
We are supposed to accept that with a shrug. Why would Israel want relations with the Taliban anyway? But that is not the proper way to analyze these reports. Why is it that the one Jewish-majority state is the only one that certain governments, among them Taliban, Pakistan and Malaysia, refuse to have relations with? This is more than implied antisemitism among all the countries that refuse relations with Israel and single out the Jewish state.
