I happen to agree with you a lot but I think you are mistaken here. This is not unrelated to Israel at all. The Israeli-Arab conflict is one of many conflicts grown on Arab and Muslim hatred that is based in their racist ideology of Arab and Muslim supremacy. Out of this setting Israel has many natural allies that face a similar situation. It may have taken a while for the Indian government to recognizse this situation but India has come arround and finally acknoledged that Israel is a natural friend to India. The same is true for the Iranian opposition - the people of Iran are natural allies of Israel. The same is true for the many oppressed native christian people in the middle east. The same is true for the Maronite and other true Lebanese who stood with Israel.Originally Posted by Womble
We must not be foolish and break up these natural alliances by cooperating with the enemy - which is not just there enemy but has not proven that they are genuenly intersted in peace but only see this as an opportunity to break up our natural alliances and stick a fork into Israeli-Indian relationships or gain points in the American congress.
