On October 12, 1945 Jinnah said

"Every man and woman of the Muslim world will die before Jewry seizes Jerusalem. I hope the Jews will not succeed in their nefarious designs and I wish Britain and America should keep their hand off and then I will see how the Jews conquer Jerusalem. The Jews, over half a million, have already been accommodated in Jerusalem against the wishes of the people. May I know which other country has accommodated them? If domination and exploitation are carried now, there will be no peace and end of wars”

— Muhammad Ali Jinnah

David Ben-Gurion—the first prime minister of Israel—made an attempt in May 1948 to establish official diplomatic relations with Pakistan when he sent a telegram to Muhammad Ali Jinnah—the founding father and first governor-general of the Dominion of Pakistan—but received no response. Jinnah's spokesman stated on his behalf: PAKISTAN WILL CONSIDER DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH ISRAEL ONLY WHEN THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE GET THEIR RIGHTS AS AN INDEPENDENT STATE ACCORDING TO THEIR WISHES.
