Israel told PM Modi that ties with are heavenly – “A MARRIAGE MADE IN HEAVEN BUT WE ARE IMPLEMENTING IT ON EARTH”. Wow! Have we heard of any leader of any country say this to the people and leader of any other country (in this case India). This shows the regard and love of Israel for India. Even though we are so much different in size, we have many similarities, face many similar threats and can gain a lot by working together. Going forward, three cheers to a wonderful strategic partnership between our two countries.

Israel has been India’s true friend at all times. Israel helped India during the 1965 and 1967 wars with Pakistan, again during the 1999 Kargil war and other critical times also. During most of the India since our independence, Indian politicians were more concerned about pleasing the Arab and Palestinian world and the muslim minority seen as a vote bank, and even supporting almost every anti-Israel UN resolutions. There has always been an ongoing hush-hush dialogue, nothing much said publicly. It is only with this current BJP-NDA Indian government, that the strong Israel-India friendship and strategic partnership has been openly talked about. PM Modi recent blockbuster visit to Israel was historic on so many counts – the biggest being finally, this was the first ever visit by an Indian prime minister to Isreal. ISRAEL HAD BEEN KEPT WAITING FOR 70 YEARS. Shalom Israel!

Just like Russia, Israel has always been a true friend on India in both good times and bad. During thte 1971 war and later wars, Russia and Israel came to India’s rescue. Now India-Israel relations on all areas, especially in the defence arena continues to grow. India will purchase the latest ong-range surface-to-air missile (LRSAM) defense systems for four Indian navy ships worth hundreds of crores. This has a major “make in India” component with India’s Bharat Electronics Ltd. (BEL) and other companies.

Israel helped India during the critical Kargil war with key military hardware. Now we will acquire the Israeli Herons, that can be fitted with weapons to engage targets on the ground – or deep strike capability.
