BJP of India supports Israel

Reader comment on item: Who Supports Israel[, Jews or Conservatives]?

Submitted by Devang Vyas (United States), Sep 8, 2003 at 14:40

The analysis on supporters of Israel according to ideological leanings may find an example in India as well. The BJP government, has had contacts with Israel even before they were in power in India and before India and Israel officially established relations. This relationship has now resulted in the first ever visit by an Israeli head of state to India, starting today.

Some Jews, like some Indians go to lengths to oppose counties like Isreal, India and the United States who are trying to fight Islamic terrorism. They believe they are doing good in encouraging debate while overlooking the harm they may cause.

One wonders if the Islamic-left coalition, as was displayed in the Anti-war rallies in London and other capitals earlier this year was a blessing in disguise. Could a closer working relationship of anti-Israeli and anti-Indian and anti-US Islamic organizations with the left cause the liberal leadership to come to reckoning with the agenda of Jihad?
