Unspoken regard

Reader comment on item: India, the Most Pro-Israel Country

Submitted by SHARAD BAILUR (India), Apr 30, 2009 at 10:31

Two points: First the Indian flag is wrong.

Second, ever since I called Gamal Abdel Nasser a liar in an article I wrote for the Times of India in 1967, my regard for Israel has stemmed from their constant if distant friendliness. Long before Israel was officially accorded ambassadorial status they had a consulate in Bombay. Yaacov Morris the Consul became a good friend of mine. Subsequent consuls have also given me cause to think that they would be cordial, and the last one before the present Consul-General in Mumbai came especially to visit me at Anand. I admire the country and the people.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Yes, the emblem at the center is the wrong color, but I went with it despite this inaccuracy to show the two flags together.
