Fisk: Israel is Playing A Big Role in India's Escalating Conflict With Pakistan
"...For months, Israel has been assiduously lining itself up alongside India's nationalist BJP government in an unspoken- and particularly dangerous - 'anti-Islamist' coalition, an unofficial, unacknowledged alliance, while India itself has now become the largest weapons market for the Israeli arms trade.
Not by chance, therefore, has the Indian press trumpeted the fact that Israeli-made Rafael Spice - 2000 'smart bombs' were used by the Indian airforce in its strike against Jaish e Mohammed (JeM) 'terrorists' inside Pakistan. India was Israel's largest arms client in 2017, paying 530 million pounds for Israeli air defence, radar systems and ammunition, including air-to-ground missiles - most of them tested during Israel's military offensives against Palestinians and targets in Syria.
Several Indian commentators, however, have warned that right-wing Zionism and right-wing nationalism under Modi should not become the foundation stone of the relationship between the two countries. But it is difficult to see how Zionist nationalism will not leach into Hindu nationalism when Israel is supplying so many weapons to India..."
Time for an update/ bump. Just realized that the issue of India/Pakistan relations and or conflict really deserves its own thread instead of just being placed in the India thread. This is simply not right, belittling to the Pakistan people’s, to Kashmir’s peoples and I will correct it!
Fascism rampant as the government and his accomplices engage in a little Reichstag Fireism.
