why indians feel so close to Israel

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

Submitted by vineet (India), Feb 23, 2012 at 13:59

Indians and Israelis have many common platforms:

1) Indians are pro development, peace loving, pro democracy and intellectual people just like israelis and indians have high praise for Israel for defending itself from the clutches of surrounding muslim nations in a brave and aggressive manner. India is not able to do that with pakistan , bangladesh, afghanistan, china. Indians crave for that aggression and bravery so they love and highly appreciate Israel.

2) In any international dispute the indians have a 100 percent inclination in favour of israel because indians better understand the mentality of muslim nations. although indian government do not openly favour israel due to some international equations and due to large population of muslims here in india.

3) It is for sure that india and muslim nations are not natural allies due to vast differences in culture, society, government,way of thinking etc. Indians find Israel close to their heart because everything including religion has very high degree of similarities.

4) Fourth and most important point ,may be objectionable to few people: Indians are although peace loving but not brave to defend themselves and always searches for a superhero to save them and they find that superhero in Israel. I also believe that israel is really a superhero. we should learn from them. Israel has helped india in difficult times of kargil, terrorist attacks. we should keep in mind that israelis also love indians.

love to israel
