Indonesia and Israel: A Relationship In Waiting

By Colin Rubenstein, Greg Barton

Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), March 2005

The authors review the history of relations between Indonesia and Israel, from the Sukarno period (1945-65) through Suharto and Abdurrahman Wahid, until the present. While Indonesia, like other Muslim-majority nations, shares a reluctance to establish diplomatic relations with Israel, the authors note that trade flows and interpersonal connections between the two nations have improved since the Oslo peace process. A solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will smooth the way for normalized relations between the two countries, the authors contend.
