India and Israel: Allies?

Apparently now…
A Study on behalf of Foreign Ministry ranks India, US as most pro-Israel countries

The greatest level of sympathy towards Israel can be found in India, according to international study on behalf of the Foreign Ministry..

Other countries that showed significant sympathy to Israel included Russia (52%) Mexico (52%) and China (50%).

At the bottom of the list, the study ranked Britain (34%) France (27%) and Spain (23%) as the least sympathetic countries towards Israel.

Ah yes.
It took till 1950 for India to recognize the State of Israel.

Why?..Oh because of India’s historic ties with the Arab world…which needless to say….refused to allow diplomatic ties with Israel.

But alas…largely due to increasing concerns over over the rise of Izlamo-Nazism in India, (Think Mumbai)…most especially lately….they’ve had a change of heart…………Well, maybe not heart..but at least: “position” -towards Israel.

Almost immediately after India’s recognition of Israel, the Jewish Agency established an immigration office in Bombay.

Many of the holiest sites of the major religions in India and Israel: Judaism and Hinduism, are now Muzzzlim mosques. Anyone care to venture a guess why?
Incidentally, These two great religions, have not felt the need to force their religion on others through forced conversion coercion, or beheadings.

By the way…An average of about 35,000 Israelis, visit India annually, many after finishing military service.


It sure is good to have Israel as a friend, aint it India?

Israel rushes to India’s defense

NEW DELHI
- Israel emerged as India’s number one defense partner last week when it was revealed that New Delhi had signed a US$1.4 billion deal with the country to purchase a 70 kilometer shore-based and sea borne anti-missile air defense system.
This makes Israel India’s biggest defense supplier, clocking over a billion dollars in new contracts in 2007 and 2008 to overtake Russia.

-India, ironcially…is one of the largest countries in the world.
Hard to miss it on any map.
-Israel, is so tiny, it can barely be found, even on maps that actually call it by its proper name: ISRAEL.

Despite its size, India remains one of the poorest countries in the world.
Despite its size, Israel ranks among the top 20 in per capita income index.

The feeling of acceptance and approval is always welcomed and cherished.

But….With India having the second largest population of Shiiiia Muzlims in the world after Iran…will Israel ever be fully embraced?

Is a relationship primarily based on “Allies against Terror”? destined for success or doomed to failure?

    This is really interesting. I would never have guessed that India is one of Israel’s top supporters, or at least sympathizers. It was also interesting to see that the three countries least sympathetic to Israel were all in Europe. Europe is doomed to dhimmitude and America, with the election of Obama, is teetering. No wonder Israel is looking for allies else where. I hope India proves a true one.

    interesting friendship there…who knew? Thanks, Angel.
    It’s troublesome that there are so many muslims there, but maybe India’s support of Israel will rub off on the muslims.

    WHAT AM I THINKING? HAAAAAAAAAA!!

    I didn’t realize that India was so supportive of Israel, but it does not surprise me at all. India is predominately Hindu and have always had their problems with Muslims also, mainly from Pakistan.

  8. Stanford Matthews says:

    It is hard to keep up with all the international schmoozing going on these days. Russia signed an oil deal with China. China and France are renewing their acquaintance and ‘holding high level contacts’. Venezuelan thugs are visiting Iranian thugs.

    So Israel and India talking nice? File it under many power shifts are taking place in the world.

  9. Stanford Matthews says:

    Or Iran’s nukes will team up with Pakistan’s nukes and Israel’s nukes will team up with India’s nukes. Iran and Pakistan will unload on the other two and the retaliation will have the latter two unloading on the former. Next thing you know, poof, we’re all gone

  10. Maggie Thornton says:

    The Muslim faction in India is not running the country. The nature of India is the 80% Hindu population, and as you have pointed out, Hindus do not believe in jihad for those outside their own religion. It makes all the difference.

  11. Jack says:

    India is really a natural partner for Israel to work with. They share a number of similar challenges.

    Like i always say, it’s easy for any fool to just sit on their ass far from Israel and say, Israel is racist and the pali savages just want a bit of land and respect. But you sober up real quick when those savages are bombing and murdering you.

    If only the rest of the world of Jew-haters wouldn’t insist on learning from their own experience.

    Perhaps India can facilitate a mission against Iran. Should Iran develop an atomic device, India should understand that it could just as easily be pointed at them as at Israel. As the largest non-muslim power in the region, India is indeed exposed to Iranian aggression.

    As the U.S. weakens, sliding down Obama’s path to nowhere, I hope India can pick up the slack and become a beacon of democracy and tolerance.

    Undeniably the Islamic faith has done a great deal to shape the world – a statement that makes no value judgment about exactly how it has shaped the world. It has formed the dominant culture in what is known as the Islamic world for centuries. But wh…

  34. Defender of the faith says:

    I agree with your topic. Did you know that Jews came to India after their land was destroyed by the Romans and they were accepted and left in peace by the local rulers? They were called the “Shaniver Teli” which meant that the “Teli” (one who runs a oil mill) who did not work on Saturday. They are called Bene Jews and where prosecuted years later when Portuguese conquered Goa (the main place they stayed). Along with the Hindu population, they were also forcefully converted. Malabar coast is another place which had sizable population of these Jews and Cochin was their main center.

    So it is natural that these two countries should be friends.

    I WOULD LIKE TO CLARIFY CERTAIN THOUGHTS AND THINKINGS ABOUT ISRAEL INDIA

    IAM AN INDIAN JEW……THOSE PEOP0LE WHO STRESS ABOUT RECENT FRINDSHIP OF ISRAEL AND INDIA MISS ONE SIGNIFICANT HISTORICAL FACT. INDIA IS THE ONLY NATION ON THE WORLD THAT HASNT PROSECUTED JEWS BUT ACTUALLY WELCOMED THEM…..WE FLORISHED IN INDIA FOR THE LAST 2000 YEARS…..THE PEOPLE ACTUALLY POROTECTED US…..INDIA IS A MIGHT AND LOVING COUNTRY TO JEWS…..

    THE RECENT MILTARY DEALS ARE VAGUE……INDIA SHARED COMON VALUES WITH ISRAEL AND HAS BEEN FRIENDS FROM THE TIME OF KING DAVID

    THOUGH MANY JEWS ARE LEAVING INDIA TO GO BACK TO ISRAEL……THERE ARE STILL LOTS OF JEWISH HERITAGED PEOPLE IN INDIA

  37. TheIndianBastich says:

    It’s a marriage of convenience. India needs Israel just has Israel needs India. They’re the only two lasting and free societies under the threat of the Islamic fundamentalism. As someone pointed out, Israel and India are the first and last line of defense against an increasingly aggresive Islamic movement – one that wants to implement a planet wide Caliphate!!

    Indians will never allow a recurrance of the Mughal dominance in India (5 centuries during which millions, probably hundreds of millions of hindus perished)- and Israelis will not tolerate even a a hint of a second (and possibly final) holocaust – a certainty if the Islamists win!!!

    Both sides have everything to lose – and an alliance based on such terrible inevitability makes India and Israel natural partners!!!
