Re: Indo-Israel: News and Discussion

^^^^ It is frighting, how history is sought to be perverted. "Jews declared war on Germany." What bull. You may say that the numbers of Jews killed by the nazis might of be less. But Skumar, please answer my one question, how many people have to be gassed in gas chambers, before it become...

Re: Indo-Israel: News and Discussion

The above has not been cited as definitive proof of anything but merely to demonstrate that doubt exists, in large measure. While it may have come from "neo-Nazi" sources, it states public facts that require repudiation. For example, one of the members previously stated that the Holocaust ...

Re: Indo-Israel: News and Discussion

The upshot of all of this is that India should support those nations and civilizations which share interests and values with it and Israel is such a nation. There is small profit and much idiocy in denying such bonds because of sanctimonious puffery. Perhaps we might find time to lecture the rest o...

Re: Indo-Israel: News and Discussion

I studied in KV, hence CBSE syllabus. But none of my friends in my circle who went to TN government schools or private schools ever hated North Indians. And I studied in more than one KV in Madras itself. If I would extrapolate my small sample set and generalize, I would say "no sir, we were n...

Re: Indo-Israel: News and Discussion

Au contraire, the Indian school system teaches a version of the holocaust that the Israeli school board would approve of. The Indian education system is dominated by lefties - so you should be actually thanking the lefties for this. Not sure where you are getting this from, but at least in late 80s...
