And why does India support dictators and Islamists?

in response to reader comment: America has always had a soft corner for dictators and islamists

Though formally neutral in the Cold War, you were actually on the Soviet side. And you're honored with an observer status in the Arab League which is wholly made of various types of cruel dictators with zero regard for human rights and very little tolerance for either non-Arabs or non-Muslims. Why is that you're always on the Muslims' side, except when it comes to Pakistan, and even thuogh they're never on your side when it comes to Pakistan? Maybe it's because you need the Arab oil and the large Muslim market for your exports? I don't mean to offend India, I like India, I'm totally pro-India, but let's be realistic and let's not blame the US for something you do even better.
