Recognize Your Friends

(Hindustan Times-India) - It took India more than 40 years to realize the sagacity of nurturing relations with Israel and the results have overtaken our expectations within a decade. Had India cultivated full-scale relations with Israel earlier, India would have benefited in numerous fields. India found that Arabs did not help India in times of need. Every year, the Arab countries passed resolutions in the Organization of Islamic Conference against India and in favor of Pakistan on Kashmir. In our 40 years of friendship, no "Arab friend" ever showed any interest in India's pre-Islamic heritage, culture, and spiritual knowledge. The reality of Islamic fundamentalism targets both India and Israel, as also the U.S. and the West. Radical Islam wishes to wipe out Israel from the face of the globe and de-Indianize India. Israel had come to India's aid not only during the battle in Kargil [in Kashmir in 1999] but much before. Sources close to Israelis revealed a list of Indo-Israeli contacts since 1962 when China attacked India, in 1965 when India humbled Pakistan, and later. There is now a regular exchange of intelligence on the terrorist organizations, which now form a global network with a lot of Saudi money and support. With Islamic terrorist groups establishing many cells in India and aid for them flowing from West Asian sources and Pakistan, Israeli intelligence is the best bet for India to keep ahead of the terrorists.
