Other than being on opposite sides of the West/Islam, rich/poor, modern/primitive etc. divides, Israel and Pakistan are twins. Both states were carved out of ancient lands by a weak imperial power to pacify exclusivist religious minorities against the wishes of the majority populations of those lands. Alas both have ended up as rather belligerent security states armed to the teeth with nuclear weapons with terrible relations with all their neighbours (some of whom are not blameless either in perpetuating the impasse that grips both regions).
