Re: Indo-Israel: News and Discussion

Modi Govt's very public and very prominent reception of Benjamin Netanyahu has completely negated India's vote, against Israel, at the UN.

There is no doubt in anyone's mind about where India stands on this matter as well as India's opinion of the perfidious palestinians and their shady shenanigans.
