Dear Dr Pipes:

Your reader Patricia Jones complimented India on India's support of Israel. Sometimes enemy's enemy becomes your friend. India and Israel are both fighting Islamic fundamentalism and are surrounded by rogue dictatorial nations. So it is possible that Indians' support of Israel is due to that circumstance. But I think thr true reasons for Indian's love for Israel go beyond that. First, Indians admire judaism as one of the (two) oldest and continuing religions on the planet. Second, Indians admire education, science, and technology. Israels success in the technological fields is not hidden from us. Finally, we have respect for the Jews who lived among us peacefully for centuries without trying to capture, convert or coerce (unlike other invaders who came to our shores). That respect extends to the entire race and to the country of Israel.
