Israel India Nexus
Modi Ready for Israel Visit

Three Indian Naval ships reached Israel today for joint activities with the Israeli Navy ahead of Modi’s visit in July

India & Israel established diplomatic relations in 1992 – this was the time when India moved from the Soviet camp to the US Camp. Pres. Pranab Mukherjee visited Israel in 2015, Ariel Sharon visited New Delhi in 2003 & Pres. Reuven Rivlin visited India in 2016

India has always shyer away from publicly demonstrating close ties with Israel due to its large Muslim Population

Yet India is largest buyer of Israeli military equipment & Military and strategic ties between the two nations extend to intelligence sharing on terrorist groups and joint military training. Analysts speculate that Israel shares it counter-terrorism expertise, well-tried on the Palestinians, with India, which in turn India applies in Occupied Kashmir – hence the similarities in the oppression of the two people

The India/Israel nexus is not new. Israel provided military assistance to India in its wars in 1962, 1965 & 1971 & was the first to recognize Bangladesh following India’s victory in 1971.
In 1971, Golda Meir, Israel's PM, offered Indira Gandhi Israeli arms and instructors in exchange of full diplomatic relations. Israel also funneled aid to the Mukti Bahini

It is also known in intelligence circles that Mossad and Raw collaborate in their acts in Afghanistan, which profusely extend into the soil of Pakistan

India/Israel/US - based on expansionist desires, oppression and hegemony - is an ominous one indeed
