Indian connection with Israel goes to ancient times several thousand years before birth of christ. It is proven that there was Jews and Dravidians-Tamils and unadulterated malayalees from southern part of India belong to a same ancient parent race. The Dravidians migrated to india from the mediterranean and the jews stayted back. I did do a search in google and this theory has some strong proofs. The migrated people -the Tamils - had a strong trade connection with the jews and it is seen in the ancient tamil poems. The Tamils knew the sea route from Tamilnadu/kerala to Israel. King Solomon's ships used to regularly have trade with the south indian ports in tamilnadu and kerala. And there is huge similarlity in Hebrew and ancient tamil words, The names of people and places.

Tamil-thigiri hebrew-thigris
Tamil-Oorppurathi Hebrew- Youpratis
Tamil-ethen Hebrew- eden(garden)
Tamil-Yongodu Sumeria- yengidu
Tamil-kai, Hebrew-coin
Tamil-Aayar- Hebrew- Aabel(Aabraham)
Tamil-nadu,naduthal, Hebrew- Knaft(english also)
Tamil-suvar, Hebrew- Shoe

A book on Hebrew and Tamil covers the following. The breast beating and wailing intonations which prevail at present in Thamizh Naadu is there with Jewish ancestors. 404 Hebrew words are explained in alphabetical order. there words have their roots in Thamizh and this is explained with reference to the literary works of Tholkappiyam and the third Thamizh Academy. Also Tuki in biblical hebrew and tamil is the same i.e peacock. eema and abba in hebrew and amma and appa in tamil refers to mother and father. This book is a very interesting read. We are astonished to the jewish, tamil similarities in names and customs as well.
