It is a sensible initiative to delete the name of any country which is recognised by the United Nation. Taiwan's name was excluded but Bangladesh affirmed its "one China" policy. Similarly, exclusion of Israel's name doesn't automatically qualify as a recognition to Israel.
Moreover, negative labelling of any country in a legal and international public document would always contradict with our national spirit of friendship to all and malice to none. However, Bangladeshis believe in the 'two state' solutions to the Palestine-Israel issue, and most certainly Bangladeshis are not willing to see genocidal atrocities and human rights violations in the name of religion, ethnicity or territorial claims from any side of the Palestine-Israel disputed borders.
The world is now interconnected, trade and national interests should dictate the foreign relations over emotional prejudices.
