Pakistan Welcomes Aid From U.S. Jews

New York Times

On Monday, the chairman of the American Jewish Congress appealed to Jews to help Pakistani earthquake victims.

Yesterday, the chairman, Jack Rosen, said, he received a telephone call from President Pervez Musharraf.

Mr. Musharraf called Mr. Rosen in New York to say that Pakistan welcomed aid from American Jewish charities for earthquake victims and that he would be open to publicizing this help to Pakistanis, who are overwhelmimgly Muslim.

“I think this creates a whole new environment of possibilities in improving relations with Pakistan,” said Mr. Rosen, who helped to organize a meeting between Mr. Musharraf and leaders of American Jewish organizations in New York City in September.

On Monday Mr. Rosen also said the American Jewish Congress, a civil rightsgroup, would work to raise funds for quake victims.
