How about Hindu Zionism?

Reader comment on item: [Christian Zionism:] Israel's Best Weapon?

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Jul 24, 2022 at 02:08

Dear Dr Pipes,

Israel will owe a plenty to the Christian Zionists but a new class of Zionists is emerging: that of Hindu Zionists.

The Hindus of India have been at the receiving end of Islam from around the same time as when Muhammad's order to siege Jerusalem was implemented by his subordinates. Some would argue that Indians have a vested interested in supporting Israel. That is far removed from the truth. When I see a billion Muslims of the world ganging up on a million or so Israelis, I pause to think and I choose to be a Zionist myself. Absence of freedom of thought, democracy, and respect for others in the Islamic doctrines disturb me to my core.
